'come and see'

Watch this film --- and you

Some in the West are fond

of a loose use of words...

 

''stunning'', for example, to describe

a work of art... but believe me

when I say - this film about a

lad of 14 - made me laugh

and cry and - by the end 

- I was left stunned.

A recent attempt on youtube by an obvious
anti-Russian, to pour scorn on this film's
historical accuracy, tries to point out
that the nazi troops state they are
members of a unit that was not
there.. but can't bring himself
to see that they might have
been lying!

THE TRAGEDY IN UKRAINE


 


"Veterans and children of the Great Patriotic War:
to the Government 
and people of Germany".




 


By events in Ukraine


 


Today, when the German government decided


to supply Ukraine with lethal weapons, the


world has changed — the silhouettes of a 


new world war are more than clearly 


outlined! And again - Germany! 


 


But there are honest people in Germany, anti-


fascists, and we hope that this Message will 


fall into their hands. People born between 


1927 and 1945 have the status of "war 


children" in Russia.


 


All those who survived that war can subscribe to this letter.
We think that actual signatures are not necessary, we
suggest that veterans
 
(or "war children") read them
this letter, 
independently or with someone's help, 


and send us (at the coordinates indicated
below) something like 
the following: 


 


Moscow, Ivanov Ivan Ivanovich, 90 years old, disabled
war veteran (or otherwise), Hero of 
the Soviet Union
(or Holder of the Order of 
Glory... or otherwise),
was repatriated to
 Germany during the war
(or otherwise). 



Or just the city, full name, and age. The 


main thing, is that they should be real 


people who are familiar with the text.


 


 


MESSAGE TEXT


 


We, the last veterans and all the peoples of 


Russia who survived that great and terrible


war, are now on the verge of death! Our 


time is already running out. For a huge 


part of our lives, we hoped we would 


come to the end of it, in peace - 


without all-destroying hatred! 


 


For the painfully long decades after the Second World War,
we overcame our righteous anger! I 
long for retribution for
the innumerable wounds, spiritual and physical, that we
still carry in our bodies and our hearts! And most of us
have forgiven! And not in a small way due to the fact
that Germany for many years has demonstrated its
repentance its understanding of what it has done!
And we have overcome, not only ourselves, but
also the voice of the blood of 
our barbarically
exterminated relatives! 
By whom?
Germans ...fascists! 


 


We have forgiven... following the laws of human


coexistence! So it was... until 2014. And then,


in 2014, when everything began in Ukraine... 


we looked with hope at Germany and at the


then Chancellor Angela Merkel. We couldn't
imagine that after all that the Germans did 


in Ukraine, after Babi Yar, after mountains 


of mutilated corpses, they would still look 


with lust at the Ukrainian fields that can 


feed Europe today! Or they, the Germans, 


who have covered the Crimea they once 


promised with blood, will still somehow
be interested in turning the Crimea 
into
an American and in general a NATO 
base, ideal for aggression against
Russia! 
Which would be clearly


aimed at a future war. 


 


After all, only fools do not understand the meaning and
goals of the entire coup in 
Ukraine... in the conditions
of which 
Russia behaved in the only possible way! But
the Germans are not fools! 
We the Russians, know for
certain 
your psychology, as "brothers in blood" - our
blood, which you 
"prudently" shed in rivers! 


 


We remember your "systematic methods of


population reduction"! Our population! Until


now, in different parts of our once united


Homeland, where the boot of German 


fascism was trodden, we find hidden 


mass graves of our civilians: in the 


Novgorod region, in the Kuban, in 


the Rostov region, in Karelia. In 


Belarus, in 2021... hundreds of 


civilian remains... were found 


in Brest    ...on the site of the 


Jewish ghetto the Trostenets 


concentration camp....  near 


Minsk terrible in its tragedy


revealed the secret of the 


remains... of thousands of 


tortured and killed people! 


 


We are talking about tens of thousands of newly
discovered victims of Nazism! This blood - still
cries out for revenge - and for decades the
memory of the barbarously destroyed 


Russian people, and monuments to 
Russian soldiers, liberators, have 
been desecrated with impunity! 


 


And the new Nazis are marching in the Baltic


States and Ukraine, in front of the entire


"civilized" world!  But in 2014, we were 


sincerely convinced -- that in this new 


Nazi demarche it's the Germans who 


will be our associates in preventing 


this meanness! 


 


We hoped that, guided by an elementary


conscience, the Germans would not 


participate..  in an obviously fascist 


anti-state coup in Ukraine! After all 


...the subsequent catastrophe of 


modern Ukraine was committed 


by direct descendants of those 


who were special bastards in 


the German army! Clearly, 


openly! 


 


Americans and Canadians have only hidden and preserved
this diabolical heritage, feeding this 
generation, but the
product of this evil... is Germany! Hitler's Germany! And
it was impossible for us to believe that it was 
Germany
that would again give a 
"road map" to these inhumans!
But 
we were wrong! Germany has once again allowed
these fascist geeks 
to enter the world! 


 


The support of modern Germany - in the face of


the new government of Ukraine-Bandera, the


heirs of the SS division " Galicia ", the thugs 


of the UPA OUN and all other abominations;


is simply unthinkable for us! This is beyond 


all that is human!  But you, Germany, have
already done it and continue to do it! You 


have, once again, set your sights on the 


Slavic world and these geeks are blood 


from the blood of German Nazism! And 


again to Russia! 


 


Only, even more despicable: inciting our closest
Ukrainian brothers against us! And you know it!
 
You know this as well as we do! You killed one
nation in that Great War! Yes, we are
one people! 


 


The truth is written and often spoken about 


by your own Steinmeier, who at the same 


time viciously took a direct part in the 


Kiev coup of 2014 — fascist in fact! 


 


This American may not be clear about some-


thing, but it's more than that, for you!  And 


after all, it was your vykormysh..  that got 


ready..  for their torchlight processions in 


Kiev! The living shadow of Nazi Germany 


is behind all this. It was only temporarily


covered up by sly diplomacy — "helmets 


instead of guns"! But that's it, "masks 


are reset"! Your supply of German 


weapons to Ukraine today, is 


natural, it is in the logic of 


your policy of recent 


decades. 


 


Today it is clearly pro-fascist! You have taken 


this step: German weapons will kill Russians 


again! Keep killing. During the years of the 


conflict in the Donbas, your professional 


killers have already killed Russians, at 


least by teaching them...  "how to kill 


correctly"! Only now -- it's even more 


despicable — you're teaching this to


- your blood brothers!  Donbass is on 


your conscience! Thousands of lives 


of its peaceful citizens --- again your 


handiwork! We do not care about the


role of Americans, in everything that


happens: there, is money-God!  We, 


veterans of that war, its children, 


are concerned about the role of 


the Germans! Because it is you 


who know -- exactly -- who the 


Ukrainian "national battalions" 


consist of --- and could have 


prevented and stopped, this 


new fascism !  But they did


not do it! And just by doing 


this — you are once again, 


responsible to history! 


 


And you are definitely participating -- in the 


preparation of Ukraine for war with Russia! 


You can't help but understand the purpose 


of everything that happened --- from the


unconstitutional coup in Kiev ....to the 


bloodshed in the Donbass!  But, in fact


this is preparation for the Third World 


War! And again, you are Germans... 


Germany!  We hear from the high 


German rostrum in Berlin today: 


"Russia will pay a high price"!!! 


This is the German Chancellor's 


speech! Unthinkable! We have 


already paid the price — 27 


million of our lives! Isn't that 


enough for you?! What price 


are you still talking about? 


 


There is no home --- in Russia, Ukraine and


Belarus - where "this price" isn't paid! And


there is no home in Germany, that did 


not participate in that terrible, bloody 


barbarism!  It's scary!  It's wild! And 


today, there are, already, more than 


13 thousand dead Russian people 


in the Donbass at the hands of 


the new Nazis! 


 


The German Chancellor's public mockery of the


Russian genocide in the Donbas is a crime in


itself! How much can the lessons of history 


be misunderstood and discredited!  The 


scariest story in the world! Do you want 


to be even scarier?! After all, this new 


"Dranch nach Oschtern" ..may lead to 


the fact that the 2nd Nuremberg trial 


over you will no longer be - there will 


simply be no humanity! You won't be 


here! But a special Ecumenical trial 


of you Germans is inevitable! Over 


all aggressors — but over you 


ESPECIALLY!


 


World justice will be served! And we, the last


veterans of that terrible war, are leaving this


world as witnesses!  Witnesses for the 


PROSECUTION! And today the victory 


will be ours, but those who died 


yesterday, or those of us who 


will die today, already bear 


witness to the role of the 


German people, in the 


history of the human 


world — a bloody 


history! 


 


German weapons are back in the 


hands of Nazi thugs! Please stop!

THE LATEST NEWS







 
Commander of the sapper squad

 Barantsev defused the APU 

kamikaze drone in time

May 28th, 10pm

(Izvestia.ru)

 

The commander of the sapper department, Junior 

Sergeant Stepan Barantsev, as part of the 

engineering unit ------ performed tasks 

to remove mines, booby traps, IEDs, 

and unexploded explosive objects 

in the territory left by the Armed 

Forces of Ukraine (AFU). 

 

Ukrainian militants attacked the positions held by 

Russian troops with varying degrees of intensity, 

using kamikaze drones. During another raid, a 

kamikaze drone swooped down on a 

protected object of the Russian 

Armed Forces, but did 

not detonate.

 

Then Barantsev, as the most experienced sapper, was 

given the task of removing and destroying a drone 

with an unexploded shell. The junior lieutenant 

promptly completed the task, preventing the 

detonation of ammunition on the territory 

of the Russian unit.

 

Meanwhile, Private Anton Smirnov, the line supervisor 

of the communications platoon of the motorized rifle 

division, organized the nodes and connecting lines 

of wired communication and their repair. While 

bypassing the positions of Russian units, it 

came under artillery fire.

 

The APU damaged switching equipment and several 

wired communication lines between the company 

and battalion control points.

 

Being in the epicentre of the shelling, Private Smirnov, 

risking his life, moved along the path of laying 

communication lines until he found the place

 of the cliff. Then he quickly restored the 

damaged communication channels, 

while maintaining stable 

management of 

the divisions.

In Ukraine, the absence of undamaged 


thermal power plants in the country 


was reported


May 28th, 5:02pm


(Izvestia.ru)


 


There is not a single whole thermal power plant (TPP) left


 in Ukraine. This was stated on May 28 by Yuriy Boyko, a 


member of the Supervisory Board of the national energy 


company Ukrenergo.


 


"So far, there is not a single thermal power plant left 


in the [country's] energy system that has not been 


damaged or completely destroyed," he said in an 


interview with a Ukraine publication Apostrophe.


 


According to Boyko, it will not be possible to restore the 


operation of all damaged power facilities before winter 


due to the scale of destruction. At the same time last 


year, there was no such large-scale destruction of 


infrastructure, and there were practically no 


capacities left for repairs.


 


He added that this summer in Ukraine 


will not do without restrictions on 


electricity consumption.


 


Earlier, on May 1, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro 


Kuleba said that half of Ukraine's energy system 


was damaged. Among other things, he said that 


Russia has demonstrated greater effectiveness


 in its "military efforts" compared to Ukraine 


and Western countries.


 


On April 26, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmygal 


said that the authorities of the republic could not 


eliminate the damage in the country's energy 


system, despite round-the-clock repairs. He


 urged Ukrainians to save electricity.


 


Earlier, on April 15, the Minister of Energy of Ukraine 


Herman Galushchenko admitted huge losses of 


generating capacities in the country. Among


 other things, he also said that local energy 


production in Kharkiv.... in the east of 


Ukraine, was almost completely 


destroyed.


 


The special operation to protect the Donbass, which 


Vladimir Putin announced on February 24, 2022, 


continues. The decision to hold it was made 


against the background of the aggravation 


of the situation in the region due to 


shelling by the Armed Forces 


of Ukraine.

Putin: Russia will create
a new security zone 
if
the Ukrainian Armed
Forces use long-

range weapons

May 28th, 3:04pm

(Vesti.ru)

 

Moscow will be forced to create a so-called sanitary zone

 if Kiev is allowed to use long-range weapons to strike at 

the territory of the Russian Federation, Russian leader 

Vladimir Putin said.

 

At a press conference following his visit to Uzbekistan, 

answering questions, Putin stated that the actions of 

the Russian armed forces in the Kharkiv direction 

are related to the need to create a sanitary zone

 to prevent Ukrainian attacks on the Belgorod 

region and border regions.

 

The Russian President warned that the same thing 

could happen if Kiev uses long-range precision 

weapons for strikes on Russian territory.

Putin -- claims losses in the ranks 


of Western ''instructors''
in Ukraine


May 28th, 2:27pm


(Izvestia.ru)


 


Western instructors in Ukraine are suffering losses. 


This was stated on May 28 by Russian President 


Vladimir Putin during a press conference 


following his visit to Uzbekistan.


 


"These are so-called mercenaries, but under the guise of 


mercenaries, experts are there. There was a question
about long-range precision weapons. And.... who 


controls these weapons, who maintains them?


 Of course --- these same instructors are 


disguised as mercenaries. They are 


there and are suffering losses,"


the Russian leader said.


 


He also confirmed that there are mercenaries


 of Western countries in Ukraine.


 


"As for the fact that there may be or are mercenaries in


 Ukraine, we are well aware of this. There's nothing 


new here. The military in Ukraine says that they 


may appear there, but they are still there. We 


hear English, French, and Polish on the air," 


the Russian president stressed.


 


"We waste our time and lose our lives in vain"


 


Colombian mercenaries of the Armed Forces of Ukraine 


complained of deception and became disillusioned 


with the conflict in Ukraine.


 


On May 26, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces 


of Ukraine (AFU) Alexander Syrsky approved the stay of 


French military instructors in the country.


 


Commenting on this decision, military expert Alexander 


Sharkovsky called it a formality that legalizes the 


actual presence of military instructors in the 


country. According to him, the French 


military is already there, not only as


 instructors --- but also as planning 


and logistics officers. In addition 


gunners of the French Foreign 


Legion are present on the 


territory of the country.


 


Statements about sending military personnel to the 


territory of Ukraine are increasingly heard in the 


West. On May 20, Lithuanian Foreign Minister 


Gabrielius Landsbergis said that the country 


is ready to send its military instructors to 


Ukraine ------- as part of a coalition led 


by France.


 


French President Emmanuel Macron has repeatedly 


stressed that such a possibility is not excluded. 


 


On May 2, he recalled that the condition for the entry of


 troops would be a request from Kiev or a breakthrough 


of the front line... by the Russian army. Acting 


presidential press Secretary, Dmitry Peskov, 


called such conversations very dangerous.


 


On May 5, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said


 that Kiev approved the idea of introducing Western 


military personnel into the country. He added that 


currently the state is ready to accept any 


support from the allies.


 


The special operation to protect the Donbass, which the


 Russian president announced on February 24, 2022, 


continues. The decision was made against


the background of the worsening 


situation in the region.

Putin urged NATO countries, to
remember
their small territory
with a dense population


May 28th, 2:18pm


(Izvestia.ru)


 


On May 28, Russian President Vladimir Putin called on 


NATO countries to think about "what they are playing 


with" in the conflict with Russia.


 


The Russian leader also called on the countries of the


 North Atlantic Alliance to remember their small


 territory with a dense population.


 


"These representatives of NATO countries, especially 


in Europe, especially in small countries, they should 


generally be aware of what they are playing with.


 They should remember --- that this is usually a 


state with a small territory and a very dense 


population," the Russian president said at 


a press conference in Tashkent, referring 


to Western proposals to allow Ukraine


 to strike at Russia.


 


On May 24, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg


 in an interview with The Economist called on allies 


to consider... lifting restrictions on the use of 


weapons transferred to Ukraine, allowing


 the possibility of strikes on the territory 


of the Russian Federation. Later, on 


May 27, he repeated his words at 


the session of the alliance's 


Parliamentary Assembly.


 


 At the same time, in both cases, Stoltenberg 


stated the need to avoid escalation.


 


Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov pointed out that 


Stoltenberg's words --- increase the degree of 


escalation --- and NATO flirts with military 


rhetoric and falls into "military ecstasy".


 


In addition, Stoltenberg's words were condemned by 


German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, as well as Italian 


Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and her colleagues


- Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini and 


Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani.


 


Western countries have stepped up military and financial 


support for Kiev against the backdrop of the Russian 


special operation to protect the Donbass, which was


 announced by Russian President, Vladimir Putin, on 


February 24, 2022, after the situation in the region 


worsened due to shelling by the Ukrainian military. 


 


However, in recent years, the West has 


increasingly voiced statements about


 the need to reduce aid to Ukraine.

Briefing by Lt General Igor Kirilov,

 Chief of NBC Protection Troops
on 
military-chemical activities
of the
 US and Ukraine

May 28th, 1:10pm

 

The Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation 

continues to record violations by the US and
Ukraine --- of fundamental international 

instruments, such as the 1925 Geneva 

Protocol for the Prohibition of the Use

 of Asphyxiating, Poisonous or Other 

Gases and the Chemical Weapons

 Convention.

 

As we have noted before, not only has Washington not 

renounced the use of chemical weapons --- but it has 

also strengthened the possibility of their use at the

legislative level. In the United States, for example,

a common military regulation on the use of non-

lethal weapons was adopted, and the Chiefs 

of Staff Committee approved the Manual for 

National Implementation of the Chemical 

Weapons Convention.

 

The documents regulate the use of non-lethal chemical 

weapons by military units in special, humanitarian, 

counter-terrorism, and peacekeeping missions. 

While Americans used to talk about using 

such weapons only in response to the 

enemy's chemical aggression, an 

important aspect of the new 

rules is the ability to use 

toxic chemicals

 unilaterally.

 

The U.S. thus has a legal framework that regulates

 a wide range of scenarios of the use of chemical 

weapons by the Armed Forces.

 

I would like to draw your attention once again to the fact 

that, in accordance with the deadlines set by the OPCW, 

the United States was due to complete the destruction

 of declared stockpiles of chemical weapons in 2007, 

but, despite its economic potential, it did so only in 

2023, twice delaying the deadline under the pretext 

of financial, organisational, and technical difficulties. 

 

The United States continues to store the remaining, 

highly toxic, chemically reactive materials in 

facilities designed to destroy chemical 

weapons. The Organization for the 

Prohibition of Chemical Weapons

 ignores this fact.

 

In addition, abandoned U.S. ammunition, filled with toxic 

substances, was detected in Panama and Cambodia. In 

2012, for example, 58 ammunition containing CN and CS 

were discovered in Cambodia's Mondulkiri Province, as 

well as 12 aircraft gas sprayers to transport them. The

 OPCW Special Commission has identified them as 

belonging to the United States.

 

Another indication of Washington's breach of its 

obligations under the Convention is the transfer

 to third countries (Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine) 

of non-lethal chemical weapons.

 

The Pentagon reportedly continues to develop new and 

modernise existing non-lethal chemical munitions and 

other systems for the use of chemical weapons, such

 as 120-mm mines, 155-mm artillery shells, and 

120-mm tank rounds.

 

Every year, at least $10 million is allocated 

to purchase them for use in combat zones.

 

It should be noted that the United States has long 

possessed one of the world's most significant 

stockpiles of chemical weapons stored within

and outside the United States. The use of 

chemicals in armed conflicts is explicitly

envisaged by U.S. doctrinal documents, 

despite Washington's signing the 1925 

Geneva Protocol.

 

The document was ratified by the U.S. Congress... with 

numerous caveats only in 1975 amid the international 

community's condemnation of the Vietnam War and

the widespread use of toxic chemicals by the U.S. 

Armed Forces during the conflict. It has been 

established that the use of herbicides during

 the Vietnam War resulted in the destruction 

of more than 1 million hectares of tropical

 forest in the south of the country. Some 

5 million people have been affected by 

the dioxin damage, and so far the 

effects have been felt.

 

Along with herbicides, American troops used non-lethal 

chemicals, including Adamsite, chloropicrin, and the BZ. 

In some cases, high concentrations of chemicals were 

used, resulting in lethal outcomes.

 

During the war on the Korean Peninsula, the use of toxic 

substances by the U.S. military was carried out with 

single chemical projectiles and bombs. From 

February 1952 to June 1953, more than 100 

cases of chemical munitions were reported

- resulting in 145 deaths and more than 

1,000 poisonings. Symptoms of defeat 

(suffocation, tearing, and loss of 

consciousness) suggest that 

ammunition was armed: with 

prussic acid, nitrogen oxides 

and arsenic compounds.

 

At the time of the American troops' entry into Iraq in April 

2003, the non-lethal chemical munitions were in the 

service with the U.S. Army deployed in the region. 

During the fighting, these weapons were used by 

the military police to suppress anti-government

attacks by the civilian population and to mop 

up urban areas, with dense development. At

the same time -- the United States has taken 

deliberate measures to cover up these facts

 in order to rule out a resonant international 

response. The basic principle is that they 

are allowed. Everything was done.... 

allegedly, to reduce losses among 

the civilian population --- and 

members of the coalition 

group.

 

With Washington's acquiescence, the use of toxic 

substances and riot control agents by Ukrainian 

militants during the special military operation 

has become systematic.

 

Numerous cases of use of chloropicrin irritant 

by the Ukrainian side, often in mixture with   

chloroacetophenone, have been recorded. 

Similar incidents have been recorded near

 Donetsk, Bogdanovka, Gorlovka, 

Kremennaya, Artyomovsk.

 

If chloroacetophenone is classified as a chemical 

riot control device, chloropicrin is listed in

 Schedule 3 of the Chemical 

Weapons Convention.

 

It will be recalled that chloropicrin was first used by 

Ukrainian neo-Nazis during the siege of the Labour 

Union Building in Odessa on 2 May 2014 against 

the opponents of the coup d'état organised by 

the U.S. and its allies.

 

The use of this toxic agent was indicated by the 

presence of pre-filtered gas masks worn by 

militants, the appearance of specific yellow

-green smoke after the fire broke out at the 

Labour Union House, and the attempt to 

conceal the use of toxic chemicals,

 by setting a fire.

 

There is reason to believe that the campaign in Odessa 

was planned, designed to take into account the 

specifics of the toxic substances used, and 

aimed at defeating as many people 

as possible.

 

In connection with the terrorist attack, Russian law

 enforcement agencies conducted an investigation

 that identified the perpetrators.

 

The Russian side has recorded and confirmed the use 

of ammunition by the AFU not only with chloropicrin, 

but also with other chemical irritant agents. For 

example, U.S.-made gas grenades containing 

CS were used against Russian servicemen 

in Krasny Liman and Boguslav tactical

 directions.

 

Hand grenades with irritant agents marked Teren-6 were 

dropped from Ukrainian UAVs on Russianpositions, and 

an ammunition cache was detected in Donetsk. 

 

According to Ukrainian prisoners of war, assault 

groups of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are 

equipped with such grenades.

 

I would like to point out, that Ukrainian armed formations 

use other scheduled chemicals as well. These are cases 

of servicemen using the BZ chemical warfare agent in

 August 2022 and prussic acid in February 2023.

 

Criminal proceedings under Article 205 of the Criminal 

Code of the Russian Federation, entitled 'Terrorism',

 and Article 355 of the Criminal Code, entitled the

'Development, production, storage, acquisition 

or sale of weapons of mass destruction', have 

been initiated by the investigative bodies 

against three Ukrainian citizens arrested 

for preparation of a terrorist attack 

using analogues of the BZ agent.

 

Of particular concern are the statements by AFU 

representatives about the availability of  

organo--phosphorous compounds, 

including analogues of the Tabun 

(GA) warfare agent, which is 

included in Schedule 1 of 

the Convention.

 

Plans for the large-scale use of toxic substances are

 reflected in Ukraine's requests for the supply of 

antidotes, gas masks, and other personal 

protective equipment in quantities that 

are clearly excessive.

 

Attempts by Ukrainian nationalists to destroy chemically 

dangerous sites in the territories of Donetsk & Lugansk 

people's republics continue unabated, thus threatening 

to inflict chemical damage on the civilian population of 

the regions. Massive missile strikes have repeatedly

 targeted the following industrial plants: Zarya in

 Rubezhnoye, Azot in Severodonetsk, and 

KoksoKhim factory in Avdeyevka.

 

In the run-up to the regular session of the OPCW 

Executive Council --- I would like to recall that 

Russia has been removed from the Executive 

Council ---- and Ukraine, Poland, and 

Lithuania were included instead.

 

One can imagine how it would go without voting rights 

for the Russian Federation considering the fact that, 

at the last session, representatives of Romania, 

Estonia, Germany, and other EU countries 

launched an aggressive campaign with 

false accusations against Russia.

 

The actions of the collective West follow a well-

established pattern of discrediting aimed at 

depriving the Russian Federation... of the 

right to vote in the Organization, as well 

as the possibility of electing & holding

office in its executive bodies -- as was 

done in the past with respect to Syria.

 

The practice of the OPCW's investigations of chemical 

accidents in Syria in 2018, when the main evidence 

was the testimony of the West-sponsored White 

Helmets, suggests that such investigations 

will not be transparent and impartial in

 the future.

 

With regard to the OPCW's double standard policy, 

I would like to recall the confirmed use of toxic 

substances (like Tabun, BZ, prussic acid) and

 non-lethal chemicals (CS, chloropicrin, 

chloroacetophenone) by the Kiev 

regime.

 

 All the necessary evidence has been submitted to 

the  OPCW Technical Secretariat, but we have not 

received a meaningful response.

 

Moreover, with funding from the Organization's budget, 

several courses have been held specially for Ukraine 

on the investigation of chemical accidents. Slovakia 

--- has organised special exercises on substance 

management and real-world sampling, with the 

participation of Ukrainian representatives.

 

This once again convinces us that the Organization 

for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, in its 

current form, is controlled by the West and

 used by it to settle political accounts.

 

Despite severe Western censorship, the information 

we publish about the use of chemical weapons by

 Ukrainian armed forces has been heard by

 foreign media and the expert community.

 

Leading foreign editions have published material on the 

most resonant issues: the U.S. delay in destroying toxic 

chemical weapons left in Panama and Cambodia, and 

the use of U.S.-made chemical munitions in Ukraine.

 

The relevant reports were posted by the CGTN television 

and radio company, Blitz and Republic, Defense Mirror, 

as well as by the Middle East media.

 

Several editions have drawn attention to the active use 

of UAVs to deliver toxic chemicals. For example, Al-

Mayadeen's report says that '...the diversity of 

UAVs has become one of the hallmarks of the 

current military conflict. Ukraine's use of this 

type of weapon..., including in combination

 with prohibited ammunition, has reached

 its maximum...'

 

A lively debate involving European and American experts 

has been launched on media platforms and social media.

 

The Australian journalist and founder of the information 

edition, Jamie Mcintyre, has confirmed that Ukrainian 

armed forces use toxic chemicals. As evidence, he

 cited the fact that in August 2022, the AFU used a

 BZ-type toxic agent, and in 2024, similar samples 

were detected in abandoned Ukrainian positions. 

His page also shows that, for purposes of

 intimidation, representatives of the AFU

 have declared that they have analogues

 of the Tabun substance.

 

We believe it crucially important that the disclosure of 

US transfers of chemical weapons to Ukraine and the 

use of toxic chemicals by the AFU has prompted the 

expert community, including in the West, to consider 

fulfiling Kiev and Washington's obligations under 

the Convention.

 

The Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation 

will continue to work in this direction and will 

keep you informed.

APU infantry destroyed on the

 outskirts of Chasova Yar

May 28th, 3:41am

(Lenta.ru)

 

On the eastern outskirts of Chasova Yar, a group of 

infantry of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) was 

destroyed, RIA Novosti reports, with reference to

 the Russian Defense Ministry.

 

Paratroopers found a stronghold with the Ukrainian 

military using aerial reconnaissance. They 

transmitted the coordinates to the 

artillery control point, after 

which the infantry 

was hit.

 

Earlier, State Duma, Viktor Vodolatsky.... said that now 

there are battles for the southern part of Chasova Yar.
According to him, Moscow protects the military in 

order to.... minimize losses on its part. The MP 

expressed the opinion... that Russia will fully 

take control of Chas Yar in the near future.

At the same time, he added 
that every
house and lane in the 
city.... was
turned into 
fortified areas.

Izvestia showed the work of anti-

aircraft gunners of the Russian 

Armed Forces to destroy 

enemy drones

May 28th, 3:35am

(Izvestia.ru)

 

Anti-aircraft gunners of the Armed Forces of the Russian 

Federation are fighting enemy drones in the Zaporozhye 

direction of the special operation. This was reported
by 
Izvestia's military correspondent Emil Timashev
on 
Tuesday, May 28.

 

"This is how the Bars-8 anti-aircraft gunner unit is moving 

into position with the wind. The main task --- is to track 

enemy drones and destroy them," the journalist said.

 

Currently, anti-aircraft gunners are working in the eastern

sector of Zaporozhye direction --- covering the sky from 

drone attacks. According to a fighter of the "Bars-8" 

squad, with the call sign Clown, both 15 and 20 

enemy drones can be destroyed in a day.

 

"They can only use.... drones. They can't do anything else. 

There's no manpower - as such. They take people off the 

street and start teaching them how to be a drone driver. 

But this is the easiest thing they can do - learn to play 

joysticks," said a member of the Bars-8 squad with 

the call sign Haynak.

 

In the Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU), this type of 

weapon is now actively used. The correspondent 

suggested, that the reason is the lack of the 

necessary minimum of ammunition, and a 

shortage of manpower. To compensate 

for these problems, the mass use of 

unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is 

necessary. Entire squadrons can 

be lifted into the sky at a time.

 

Meanwhile, such measures on the part of the Ukrainian 

Armed Forces ----- are powerless to stop the Russian 

advance. Now the Russian troops are only about 

two km away from the city of Gulyai-pole.

 

Unity and a friendly atmosphere prevail in the ranks of 

the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, and

this is bearing fruit.

 

"We have a brotherhood. One for all and all for one.

 Everyone helps each other. We are brothers to

 each other. We will achieve victory, " - said 

the fighter of the "Bars-8" squad with the 

call sign Kumar.

 

The journalist explained that the front line in the

 Zaporizhia direction --- is being leveled. The 

situation became even more favorable 

after the capture of the village of 

Rabochino: new units were 

drawn up... to the line of 

contact, which raised 

the effectiveness of 

the advance.

MP Vodolatsky: Ukrainian prisoners

asked not to be included in the 

exchange lists

May 28th, 2:45am

(RT.ru)

 

Captured servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

asked not to include them in prisoner exchange lists.

 

This information was shared with RIA Novosti by 

Russian State Duma deputy, Viktor Vodolatsky.

 

"Ukrainian fighters who were caught on the streets, sent 

to the front line, are surrendering and do not want to 

be included in the exchange lists, because there 

will be certain reprisals against them," the

 parliamentarian said.

 

Earlier, a captured Ukrainian soldier said that the 

servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine did 

not want to defend themselves near Kharkiv.

Ensign Andreenko carried the wounded 

commander of the assault group and 

a colleague from the battlefield

May 27th, 10:20pm

(Izvestia.ru

 

Ensign Oleg Andreenko, as part of a group of Russian

 servicemen, performed the task of liberating one of

 the settlements controlled by the Armed Forces of 

Ukraine (AFU). On Tuesday, May 28, the Russian 

Defense Ministry told about the new exploits 

of Russian servicemen in the special 

operation zone.

 

When the group was attacked from a camouflaged enemy 

position, the stormtroopers quickly oriented themselves 

and suppressed the enemy's firing point, continuing the

 offensive. Then, with the support of artillery, the 

enemy launched a counterattack.

 

Ensign Andreenko - covering the group - took an 

advantageous position in one of the destroyed 

buildings and covered the exit of Russian 

servicemen from enemy fire. During the 

battle..... the commander of the group 

and another serviceman were injured. 

Having repelled the counterattack of 

the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Ensign 

Andreenko took the wounded 

comrades to the medical 

units in turn & returned

 to the firing position.

 

Meanwhile, during the Guard's combat duty, Lieutenant 

Maxim Sagar discovered an approaching air target. 

According to the signs of intelligence, it was 

classified as an unmanned aerial vehicle 

(UAV) of an airplane type.

 

Immediately assessing the situation, he shot down an 

APU drone with aimed shots from small arms, which 

stopped the enemy's attempt to launch a fire strike

 on Russian units.

 

Thanks to the professionalism and efficiency of 

Lieutenant Sagar's guards, an enemy kamikaze

 drone detonated in the air before it could 

approach the positions of the Russian 

Armed Forces.

French military instructors' 


stay in Ukraine approved


May 27th, 4:30pm


(Lenta.ru)


 


The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine 


(AFU) Alexander Syrsky approved the stay of French 


military instructors in the country. He announced


 this in his Telegram channel.


 


"I have already signed documents that will allow the first 


French instructors to visit our training centres and get
acquainted with their infrastructure and personnel," 


Syrsky wrote.


 


The commander-in-chief announced the signing of the 


documents during a meeting with French Minister of


 the Armed Forces, Sebastien Lecornuh, via video 


link. Syrsky praised Paris' determination to join 


"this ambitious project."


 


Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said 


that Moscow has data on the work of French


military instructors... on the territory 


of Ukraine.

The NATO Secretary General --- called for 


allowing Kiev, to hit Russia with Western


weapons. The Kremlin says the alliance 


has fallen into a "military ecstasy"


May 27th, 4:16pm


(Lenta.ru)


 


NATO's Jens Stoltenberg called for Ukraine to be allowed to
use Western weapons on Russian territory. He asked the
allies to consider lifting restrictions on the use of
long-range weapons transferred to Kiev.


 


''I believe... that these restrictions should be lifted. But


these restrictions are accepted at the national level. 


And this decision will remain at the national level.''


 


Jens Stoltenberg


NATO Secretary General


 


The head of the bloc pointed out that Kiev should 


independently decide how to use the transferred 


weapons.....  since they "cease to be a NATO 


weapon and become a weapon of Ukraine."


 


In the Kremlin, Stoltenberg's words were 


called "falling into military ecstasy"


 


Commenting on the words of the alliance's Secretary 


General, Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said 


that NATO is engaged in increasing the degree 


of escalation. He pointed out -- that this could 


not be just a personal opinion of Stoltenberg,


 since he is an official.


 


''NATO flirts with military rhetoric and  falls 


into a "military ecstasy".  This ------- is the 


reality that we need to deal with further.''


 


Peskov also called Stoltenberg's statement about NATO's


intention not to engage in a direct clash with Russia -- 


contradictory. The spokesman for Russia's president
stressed that NATO is already directly involved in


 the conflict.


 


In Italy, Stoltenberg was called to stop,


 calling him a "dangerous gentleman"


 


Italy's Transport and Infrastructure Minister, Deputy 


Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, called the NATO 


Secretary General a "dangerous gentleman" 


and urged him to stop. Salvini believes that 


after his words on ''lifting restrictions'' on


 Kiev's strikes on the Russian Federation, 


Stoltenberg should get better, then 


apologize --- or resign.


 


''Talking about the Third World War, about Western, 


European and Italian weapons that can strike 


and kill inside Russia, seems to me very, 


very dangerous and reckless.''


 


Matteo Salvini, Deputy 


Prime Minister of Italy


 


A few days earlier, Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani 


noted that the country does not support Ukraine's 


strikes on Russia. "We will not send a single 


Italian soldier to Ukraine, and our military 


equipment must be used inside Ukraine," 


he stressed.

The same opinion is shared
 by Salvini, according to
whom, 
permission to strike at the Russian
Federation, is out 
of the question.


 


Stoltenberg urged to lift restrictions 


- due to the situation near Kharkiv


 


The situation near Kharkiv was a trigger for allowing 


Kiev to use Western weapons on Russian territory,
Stoltenberg explained. He noted that due to the 


ban on attacking military targets on the 


territory of the Russian Federation the


 Armed Forces of Ukraine...... face a


 defense problem. Lifting the ban in


 this case, the NATO Secretary 


General called.. self-defense.


 


He specified that 99 percent of weapons are supplied to 


Kiev by the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance, and 


assured that they "helped to inflict serious losses on


 the Russian army." At the same time, Stoltenberg 


stated the need... to avoid escalation.


 


The Russian Foreign Ministry said that the NATO 


Secretary General exceeded his authority


 


Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov --- commenting on 


the words of the Secretary General of the alliance, said 


that Stoltenberg exceeded his authority. Lavrov


 doubted that the Secretary General could 


assume such responsibility and speak 


on behalf of all members of the bloc.


 


He also pointed out that Stoltenberg's initiative caused a 


mixed reaction within the bloc itself. So, Lavrov recalled 


the disapproval of the idea by Italian Prime Minister


 Giorgi Meloni, who yesterday, called on 


Stoltenberg ------- to be careful in 


his statements.

As the court found, on March 14, 2022, Shevchuk saw an

 unarmed man and, by order of the command, opened fire

 on him. Then his colleague stabbed the victim several 

times in the neck. As a result, he died on the spot.

 

"The court --- sentenced Shevchuk to 

24 years in prison," the report says.

 

As noted by the UK, the criminal case 

against Shevchuk's colleague was

 transferred to the court.

Parliament Speaker: Georgia urged

 to send military to Ukraine

May 27th, 3:11pm

(RT.ru)

 

Some countries - behind closed doors - called on Georgia 

to send military personnel to Ukraine, said the Speaker 

of the Georgian Parliament, Shalva Papuashvili.

 

"These were both open calls - and behind closed doors - 

some friends and foes pushed us to do this, so that the

Georgian authorities would send fighters to Ukraine,

which directly meant war," TASS quoted him 

as saying.

 

Earlier, the underground reported that Georgian 

mercenaries.... were engaged in extortion in

 Kherson, controlled by the Armed Forces 

of Ukraine.

 

Founder of the ruling Georgian Dream — Democratic 

Georgia party, honorary chairman of the party, 

Bidzina Ivanishvili said that supporters of the

In Ukraine, they pointed out the possibility
of a recruitment centre to refuse a 


postponement - for any reason


May 27th, 1:39pm


(Izvestia.ru)


 


The Government of Ukraine did not explain the reasons


 why the territorial recruitment centres (TCCs) of the 


country can refuse conscripts a postponement. 



This will lead to the fact that shopping centres 


will make decisions at their discretion, as the


 May 27 edition of Country.ur, notes.


 


It is noted --- that this does not apply only to those who 


have a reservation from the mobilization. The rest will 


have to submit an application for postponement to 


the shopping centre, and the body will consider it 


within seven days.


 


At the same time, the journalists point out in Telegram, it 


seems unlikely to challenge the decision of the military 


commissars. First, before a trial begins, the conscript 


will already be sent for a medical examination. 


 


Secondly, it remains unclear how the court 


will determine the legality of the decision,


 because there is no legal norm --- as it 


was not prescribed by the Cabinet of 


Ministers, the publication says.


 


Major of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) Sergey 


Alimov said that soon in the cities of Ukraine there


will be empty streets --- and no one will go to the 


front. He noted that the forcibly mobilized fall 


into the trench - and refuse to fight.


 


Earlier, on May 20th, it became known that military


 registration and enlistment offices in Ukraine 


submitted requests to the police to search 


for about 95 thousand draft dodgers. 



Also, then President of the country 


Vladimir Zelensky approved on 


May 17th, an increase in 


absentee fines for 


those who avoid 


serving... in the 


country's army.


 


The Ukrainian leader signed a law on tougher 


mobilization on April 16. The document 


clarifies the categories of persons 


subject to mobilization and 


toughens the penalties for 


evading it. However, it 


does not provide for 


any provisions on 


demobilization.


 


Among other things, Zelensky lowered the age of


 mobilization from 27 to 25 years and signed a 


law on the creation of an electronic register 


of those liable for military service -- which 


will combine information about personal 


data of Ukrainians. He also abolished 


the status of a limited serviceable 


person in the army. So... in the 


ranks of the Armed Forces of 


Ukraine, patients with HIV, 


certain forms of cancer, 


residual tuberculosis 


and men with mental


 retardation will be 


able to serve.


 


Martial law in Ukraine is effective from February 2022.


 At the same time, Zelensky signed a decree on 


general mobilization. Later, the Verkhovna 


Rada repeatedly extended its validity. 


Most men between the ages of 18 


and 60 are prohibited from 


leaving the country.

Hungary linked the flight of Ukrainian 


citizens from the country with 


unwillingness to go to 


their deaths


May 27th, 1:31pm


(Izvestia.ru)


 


Ukrainian conscripts are fleeing the country, as they do 


not want to go to certain death in the special operation 


zone. This was announced on Monday, May 27, by the 


Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Economic 


Relations of Hungary, Peter Szijjarto.


 


"We see how Ukrainians want to escape from Ukraine, 


we see that they do not want to go to the front to 


certain death," he said after a meeting of the 


foreign ministers of the EU, a briefing 


published by the M1 TV channel.


 


Szijjarto noted that the main issue now is not weapons


and their shortage, but the shortage of Ukrainian 


military personnel who can use this equipment.

Kiev accused the West of supplying 


UAVs that are not suitable for the 


conditions of the conflict


May 27th, 1:24pm


(Izvestia.ru)


 


Western states that support Ukraine supply Kiev with 


unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that are not suitable


 for the conditions of the conflict. This was stated on 


Monday, May 27, by Deputy Minister of Digital 


Transformation of Ukraine 


Alexander Bornyakov.


 


"We receive very few drones from allied countries that 


are truly suitable for real-world conditions in Ukraine," 


the Euractiv portal quotes him as saying.


 


Bornyakov drew attention to the fact ---- that many


drones delivered by the West need to be finalized.


 


Earlier in the day.... it became known that the Cabinet of


 Ministers of Ukraine partially simplified the procedures 


related to control over the production of ammunition. 


So, for manufacturers of launch engines for 


unmanned systems and missiles, it will be 


easier to include them in the register


 required for concluding a state 


contract., reports Country.ur.


 


It was noted that the Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis 


Shmygal, as a positive example, spoke about the 


introduction of a 25% rate of return for drones, 


and this innovation attracted investors.


 


Earlier, on May 26, the British TV channel Sky News 


reported that Russia produces artillery shells three 


times faster than Ukraine's Western allies, 


although countries in the US and EU have 


tried to increase the pace of production 


at their factories. In addition, the 


products of the Russian military-


industrial complex (MIC) are 


about four times cheaper 


than those made in 


Western countries.


 


In addition, Western media have repeatedly noted 


that soldiers of the Ukrainian army complain 


about the catastrophic shortage of artillery 


shells and other types of weapons.


 


The special operation to protect the Donbass, which 


was announced on February 24, 2022, continues. 


The decision was made against the background 


of the worsening situation in the region.

attack on the village of Nizhniye Serogozy in the 


Kherson region, after which one woman died. 


This was announced on Monday, May 27, 


by the head of the region Vladimir Saldo.


 


"Following their tactics of repeated attacks, Ukrainian 


terrorists again struck the building of the Social Fund


 in Nizhni Serogozy. One woman -- who was near the 


arrival point became ill. According to doctors, she


 had a heart attack. Unfortunately, she died," he

The governor clarified that as a result of the second 


shelling, there were no other victims or dead.


 


The first attack on the Social Fund in Nizhniye Serogozy 


occurred at approximately 09: 13 am (coincides with


 Moscow time). According to the latest data, five 


people were injured. Baldo also noted that a 


school is located opposite the attacked 


building, where exams were held on 


Monday, which did not befuddle


the Ukrainian military.


 


The Ukrainian Armed Forces are trying to strike at 


Russian territories against the background of a 


special operation in the Donbass -- which the 


Russian Federation announced, on February 


24, 2022. The decision to hold it was made 


due to the aggravation of the situation
in
 the region due to shelling by the 


Ukrainian military.

Surrendered Ukrainians 

talk about shootings

May 27th, 10:23am

(Vesti.ru)

 

The Ukrainian military, who wanted to surrender in the 

special operation zone, is now not so easy to do this -

first they need to overcome their own minefields. In 

addition, they can be shot for trying to lay down 

their weapons.

 

"They are very afraid. They talk about the shootings 

that are on the opposite side. In negotiations, on 

radio stations, you can hear the phrases "try to 

get out of there", "you can't go any further

 than me". We hear --- all this," Colonel 

Artem Gorodilov.... commander of a 

separate airborne assault brigade, 

Guards said in Vladimir Solovyov's

documentary "117th Week of 

the SVO".

 

Nevertheless, the AFU servicemen continue

 to surrender, both in the northern and
western directions.

 

According to the commander of the Russian brigade, 

the enemy's losses can be judged ---- by how many 

new untrained fighters appear on the battlefield.

 

"You can see them. They're going the wrong way. They 

are lost when the conductor is lost. At the first break, 

they run away. You can see inexperienced, untrained 

people," Gorodilov explained, adding that according

 to his observations ---- the commander of the 

Ukrainian brigade - has already changed 

the "fourth set" of military personnel.

Colonel Artem Gorodilov:

 equipment helps to win, 

but the main thing 

is people

May 27th, 10:10am

(Vesti.ru)

 

The supply of Russian military personnel in the area of 

the special operation has significantly improved: new 

weapons - are being delivered, said Colonel Artem 

Gorodilov, commander of the separate airborne 

assault brigade, Guards.

 

"New types of weapons have come dramatically. We 

don't have time to train people. Everything is new, 

everything is new," he said in Vladimir Solovyov's

 documentary "The 117th week of the SVO".

 

Among the factors contributing to the successful 

promotion of the Russian military... is technical 

equipment & competent training of personnel, 

but the most important is the spiritual state 

of people, Gorodilov is sure.

 

"After all, everyone understands --- that the most important 

thing is not the technique. The main thing is still people. 

People believe in victory, understand who they are 

fighting against. This is good news," the 

brigade commander stressed.

 

Speaking about how the service in the Airborne Troops 

has changed recently, Gorodilov noted that the units 

have become more mobile.

 

"The Airborne forces have become even more trained, 

have become high-tech – I'm not afraid of this word. 

Such complexes and systems.. are already used in 

the Airborne Forces, which we did not have before. 

And they give very good positive results," Colonel

 Artem Gorodilov told the Guards.

 

"Now we all have one common idea. We must 

complete the special operation --- but only
with
 our victory," he concluded.

APU warned of disaster in case of 

jamming of the Starlink system

May 27th, 3:22am

(Lenta.ru)

 

The Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU) will face serious 

problems due to the jamming of the Starlink system 

by Russian electronic warfare systems. The British

 analyst Alexander Merkouris warned Kiev about 

this on his YouTube channel.

 

The expert said that the United States will try to find 

ways to bypass the jamming. However, according to

 him, if Washington does not succeed.. then Ukraine 

will face a catastrophe. "Communications, military 

communications are very much dependent on the 

Starlink system," he said.

 

Merkouris added that Russian forces have begun 

jamming the Starlink system, and they are doing 

so in an increasingly sophisticated way. 

 

According to him, the military was able to interfere with 

its work during the offensive in the Kharkiv direction.

 

Earlier, British analyst Alexander Merkouris said that 

Ukraine refused to use US missiles because of their

 inefficiency. He stated that Russia managed to 

successfully jam the GPS guidance systems 

that the United States supplies to Kiev.

 Czech mercenary predicts 


-- the encirclement of the 


Ukrainian Armed Forces 


by Russian troops


May 25th, 11:58pm


(Lenta.ru)


 


Russian troops' penetration into the front lines of the 


Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) -- will allow them to


 encircle certain sections of the Ukrainian defense. 



This was stated in an interview with Lidovky 


newspaper by a Czech mercenary with the 


call sign Pavel.


 


He explained that from each "salient" the Russian military 


will be able to penetrate to the north and south, and then 


close these areas of defense of the Armed Forces of 


Ukraine. Participants in the fighting, were skeptical 


about the possibility of Ukrainian troops to achieve 


success in the confrontation with Russia. In their 


opinion even military assistance from the United 


States will not be able to change the situation 


in Kiev.


 


"The Russians will advance,"


 the Czech fighter stated.


 


Earlier, a US veteran said that mercenaries traveling to


 Ukraine are killed during combat operations, because 


they mistakenly believe that it will be easy to fight 


against Russian troops. According to the US 


fighter, mercenaries are used to fighting 


obviously weaker enemies.

Ukrainians who fled to Hungary 


expressed fear of imminent 


death at the front


May 25th, 11pm


(Izvestia.ru)


 


Citizens of Ukraine try to avoid conscription, because they 


believe that they will die at the front, where, according to 


them, people live an average of three hours. This was 


stated in an interview with the Hungarian online 


publication Tények by three Ukrainians who


 fled to Hungary a few months ago.


 


"Civilians have almost no chance to survive at the front. 


According to statistics, they survive an average of 


three hours, so they are practically sent to die,"


 one of the interlocutors shared.


 


It is noted that the Ukrainians fled to Hungary a few


 months ago - they are terrified that Ukraine will 


demand their deportation to the front.


 


"Police or soldiers stop people on the street, take their 


documents and then knit them. But those who do not 


show their documents are immediately thrown on a 


bus, then taken to a military camp, where after a 


very short preparation they are immediately 


sent to the front," the source said.


 


The article also emphasizes that instead of a truce 


and peace talks, European politicians are sending 


more and more ammunition and missiles.


 


Let's go downhill: the new law on mobilization will 


increase the outflow of men from Ukraine


 


Earlier, on May 22, it became known that Ukraine began 


to make the first decisions on the parole of convicts for 


mobilization. It was noted that the pre-trial detention
centre --- was ordered to immediately release ex-


prisoners to the National Guard and take them 


to the local territorial recruitment and social 


support centre (the Ukrainian equivalent of 


a military enlistment office) to conclude a 


contract. As it was indicated --- in the 


coming year, the released persons 


will be placed under 


administrative 


supervision.


 


President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, whose term of 


office ended on May 20, signed a bill on the mobilization 


of prisoners on May 17. All convicted persons are 


subject to it, except "persons who have 


committed crimes against the basics 


of national security ----- murderers, 


rapists, pedophiles ----- and those


who committed fatal accidents 


under the influence of 


alcohol or drugs."


 


In addition, the law on strengthening mobilization came 


into force in Ukraine on May 18. The document signed 


by Zelensky clarifies the categories of persons 


subject to mobilization and toughens the 


penalties.. for evading it. However, it 


does not provide any provisions 


for demobilization.


 


Among other things --- Zelensky lowered the age of 


mobilization from 27 to 25 years and signed a law 


on the creation of an electronic register of those


 liable for military service, which will combine 


information about the personal data 


of Ukrainians. 


 


He also abolished the status of a limited serviceable


person in the army. Thus.. patients with HIV, certain 


forms of cancer, residual tuberculosis and men with 


mental retardation... will be able to serve in the 


Ukrainian troops.

(Izvestia.ru)


 


The Ministry of Defense told about the merits of the Guard 


of Junior Sergeant Dmitry Kotov, who, while at the visual 


observation point, was the first to see an unmanned 


aerial vehicle of a quadrocopter type approaching 


the positions of Russian troops, and shot it down 


with the help of electronic warfare equipment. 


The drone fell before reaching the protected 


objects and detonated.


 


Thanks to Kotov's timely actions, it was possible to detect 


and prevent the defeat of UAVs of the Armed Forces of 


Ukraine (AFU) objects of the Armed Forces of the 


Russian Federation.


 


The Ministry also noted the actions of the driver of the 


support platoon of the motorized rifle battalion, Lance 


Corporal Sergei Batrakov. At the risk of his own life, 


he provided first aid and carried seven Russian 


servicemen who were seriously injured and 


unable to get out of the area of enemy fire 


on their own from the battlefield to the 


safe zone. Thanks to Batrakov's 


dedication, it was possible to 


save the lives of the 


Russian military.


 


It is also noted that the corporal throughout the 


entire period of his stay in the SVO zone 


organized the uninterrupted delivery 


of material and technical property, 


ammunition, fuel and lubricants


 to the front line.

Putin called the work of the defense 


complex "one step ahead" of the 


enemy --- a guarantee of victory


May 25th, 3:04pm


(Izvestia.ru)


 


Russia must always go one step ahead of the enemy in 


terms of weapons, then victory will be guaranteed. 


This was stated on May 25 by Russian President 


Vladimir Putin during a meeting with heads of 


defense enterprises in Korolev, 


Moscow region.


 


"I would like to emphasize this again: we must always be 


one step ahead. We need to stay ahead of the enemy all 


the time, and then victory will be guaranteed," the 


president said.


 


He pointed out that the effectiveness of the Armed Forces 


of the Russian Federation increases many times --- if the 


enemy is behind by at least half a step.


 


Putin also clarified that it is important to use the resources


 of the defense industry more effectively — to give an 


opportunity for further development, expansion and 


production, & some of the most effective models, 


according to the president, need to be put into 


service in an accelerated manner.


 


The President of Russia on Saturday, May 25th, arrived in 


Korolev near Moscow to inspect the production facilities 


of enterprises of the military-industrial complex (MIC) 


and meet with their leaders. The meeting is being 


held at the site of Tactical Missile Armament 


Corporation JSC (TTRV).


 


At the meeting, the head of state also stressed the 


importance of increasing supplies for the army.

unmanned aerial and ground-based 


systems, high-precision weapons, 


electronic warfare systems, and 


counter-battery warfare systems. 


 


The president also said that the volume of production

 Ministry, Andrey Belousov, said that the head of state 


had set him the task of integrating the army's 


economy into the relevant industry common 


to the whole country. Belousov reminded


that defense spending has already 


exceeded 6.7% of Russia's GDP 


and each ruble should bring the


maximum effect ---- so costs 


need to be optimized.


 


The special operation to protect the Donbass, which Putin 


announced on February 24, 2022, continues. The decision 


was made against the background of the aggravation of 


the situation in the region due to shelling by the

The Pentagon.. and the countries of the EU, represented by

 weapons deep into the territory of Russia.

 

"By publicly discussing topics related to allowing Ukraine

controlling troops, we understand, has long 

been carried out with the help of NATO," 

Bondarev wrote in Telegram channel.

We wish you good health: almost 100% 

of those wounded during the SVO

return to service

 by Bogdan Stepovoi

May 25th, 12:10pm

(Izvestia.ru)

 

Now almost 100% of the servicemen who were injured 

during the special operation in Ukraine are returning

 to service. Moreover, this indicator hasn't changed 

for two years. This was announced by 

representatives of the Ministry of 

Defense at the opening of the 

scientific and practical 

conference "Combat 

Trauma-2024" 

in Moscow. 

 

The Vishnevsky Military Clinical Hospital has opened a 

scientific and practical conference "Combat Trauma". 

The main topics of the meeting were first aid on the 

battlefield and rehabilitation after injuries.

 

"Despite the varying intensity of combat operations --- it 

should be noted that we managed to achieve that 98% 

of the wounded return to service," Dmitry Trishkin, 

head of the Main Military Medical Department of 

the Ministry of Defense, said at the opening. — 

And this figure has not changed for two years. 

This is one of the most important indicators 

for us. The bar that we try to keep.

 

He also added that less than 2% of military personnel 

become disabled and are dismissed from the ranks 

of the Russian armed forces.

 

— Against the general background of all sanitary losses, 

this is an historic figure. This is also compared to the 

previous armed conflicts in which we participated 

(the Great Patriotic War, Afghanistan, and the 

North Caucasus). At that time, such values 

were not reached. Our enemies don't have

 anything like that either," the ministry 

official said.

 

Speaking about the work of departmental hospitals, he 

drew attention to the fact that medical institutions

 face two main tasks: to provide timely assistance 

to the primary wounded, as well as to treat those 

who need it again.

 

— The Ministry of Defense has taken on all the necessary 

amount of such work. Starting from the battlefield, ending 

with high-tech prosthetics of limbs. This result.... is the 

merit of all stages of medical care provision. First
of 
all, medical workers from the front line. 

 

People, regardless of everything, evacuate patients in a 

timely manner. At the level of medical departments, 

such work is organized smoothly," the 

representative of the Ministry of 

Defense said.

 

It is important that this work is 

carried out systematically.

 

— The system built over two years is now yielding an 

important result, significantly helping the armed 

forces. The fighters are returning to the ranks, 

continuing to perform combat tasks," 

Trishkin concluded.

 

By the way, several foreign delegations took part in the 

conference "Combat trauma": from the United Arab 

Emirates, Vietnam, Laos, North Korea, and 

Uzbekistan. As the conference guests 

noted, they were certainly interested 

in the experience of Russian military 

medics, primarily acquired during

the special operation.

 

Several Russian companies that produce various medical 

equipment also presented their products at the event. In 

particular, special mattresses designed for heating

 operating tables and resuscitation beds are now

 used in hospitals and military hospitals. As a 

representative of the manufacturer noted, 

the item is very popular in the field.

 

- The operating room temperature is not always normal. 

Therefore, heating the patient's body during surgery 

and other procedures becomes important. This 

almost eliminates the possibility of 

complications due to a low 

temperature," he said.

 

According to the manufacturer, mattresses are purchased

 for the needs of the SVO and used in hospitals stationed 

on the front line. Its cost varies from 200 thousand to 

500 thousand rubles. About a thousand civilian 

specialists have already been trained for 

this purpose.

 

In addition, the guests' attention was drawn to the 

exhibition dedicated to the means of medical 

evacuation of the wounded. In particular, 

the protected ambulance "Lens" was 

presented, modified taking into 

account the experience of its 

operation in the special 

operation zone. 

 

This model improves ergonomics in the habitable 

compartment, improves the microclimate and 

air conditioning system, and changes the 

design of the door for faster and safer 

loading of the wounded.

 

In addition, the wheels of this model are equipped 

with fire-resistant tires. This modification of the 

"Lens" is already being delivered to the troops 

to supply medical units.

 

In addition to the "Lens", the exhibition demonstrated a 

Ka-226 helicopter, an all-terrain vehicle-based means 

of evacuating the wounded from the front edge, as 

well as the SATI-M isolation transport system.

 

It supports the maintenance of vital body 

functions and monitors the development 

of complications during the preparation 

and conduct of medical evacuation.

Sheremet: Stoltenberg is obsessed 

with war and wants to hurt Russia

as much as possible

May 25th, 7:48am

(Vesti.ru)

 

State Duma deputy from Crimea, member of the Security 

Committee Mikhail Sheremet called the insanity of the 

call of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg to 

lift restrictions on strikes on Russia.

 

Earlier, Stoltenberg said that NATO should remove

 from Kiev a number of restrictions on the use of 

Western weapons for strikes on the territory of

 the Russian Federation.

 

Sheremet believes that Stoltenberg's statement is due to 

his desire to further inflame the conflict in Ukraine and 

"harm Russia at any cost," although this may cause

 "catastrophic consequences" for the residents
of
 Western countries.

 

Stoltenberg is obsessed with war and does everything 

to turn Europe into a powder keg, the deputy added,

reports RIA Novosti.

 

Two weeks ago, the NATO Secretary General said that 

there is no point in restoring Ukraine.... if it loses. 

 

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova 

noted, in this regard, that NATO is not interested in the 

future of Ukraine and its population, Ukraine is only 

a tool for implementing the alliance's anti-

Russian course.

 

Stoltenberg also said earlier... that the bloc has no 

intentions of directly engaging in a confrontation 

with Russia on the territory of Ukraine.

 

Russia has repeatedly stated that the West's supply of

 weapons to the authorities in Kiev leads to the direct 

involvement of NATO countries in the Ukrainian 

conflict; pumping Ukraine with weapons does

 not contribute to negotiations.

In Odessa there was a mass brawl 

with participation by the military

May 24th, 9:19pm

(Lenta.ru)

 

A mass brawl between soldiers of the Armed Forces of 

Ukraine and civilians occurred in the resort area

of Odessa, Arcadia, reports the newspaper 

"Country.ua"in Telegram.

 

As the sources of the publication noted, the reasons for 

the fight are unknown. "In the Odessa Arcadia, a mass

 brawl of civilians occurred with the military," 

they said.

 

Judging by the footage from the scene, several dozen 

people took part in the fight, while there were more 

civilians than military ones.

 

In February, in the Ukrainian city of Sumy, activists of the 

radical movements "National Corps" (banned in Russia) 

and "Right Sector" (banned in Russia) staged a mass 

brawl with shooting. After a verbal altercation, a 

scuffle began, in which up to 50 people 

took part.

In Britain, they told about the failure 

of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

 that scared Zelensky

May 24th, 8:43pm

(Lenta.ru)

 

British analyst Alexander Mercouris said that Ukrainian 

Vladimir Zelensky was frightened by the breakthrough 

of the Russian military positions of the Armed Forces 

of Ukraine in the Kharkiv direction, where they did

 not have any fortifications. He told about this on 

his YouTube channel.

 

According to him, Russian troops managed to conduct a 

successful offensive near Kharkiv, as a result of which 

all Ukrainian fortifications were destroyed.

 

"We are talking about the complete absence of 

fortifications, minefields, trenches. It seems 

that this scared even Zelensky," the 

expert stressed.

 

Merkouris believes that the Ukrainian leader is concerned

 about the situation at the front, as evidenced by the

 gathering of a huge number of troops in this 

direction. He believes that Zelensky is 

afraid of losing Kharkiv to Russia, 

realizing that this would mean

 the end of his presidency.

 

Earlier, the analyst said that part of the Ukrainian military 

in Volchansk was cut off from the main forces. Merkouris

 noted that intense fighting is taking place in this 

direction, and the positions of the Ukrainian 

Armed Forces are being subjected to very

heavy shelling by the Russian army 

--- which does not allow the 

Ukrainians to replenish 

their ranks.

Ukraine has started an urgent discharge of water from

 the Dnipro hydroelectric power station, Governor of 

the Kherson region, Volodymyr Saldo said, in a 

Telegram channel.

 

"According to our information, the enemy has opened all 

the floodgates on the Dnieper hydroelectric dam. There

 is a massive discharge of water, which will arrive 

within a few days," the head of the region said.

 

Saldo added that significant flooding of coastal areas in 

the Kherson region, is not expected, but in the zone of

flooding - with a high degree of probability - will be
the 
islands in the Dnieper delta.

 

As the Telegram channel "Military Chronicle" notes, one 

of the reasons for the discharge of water could be the 

offensive actions of the Russian military on the

 islands opposite Krynok. Official information

Ukraine handed back unable

 to shoot Leopard tanks

May 24th, 8:07pm 

(Lenta.ru)

 

Kiev decided to abandon the Leopard 1 tanks transferred 

to it by Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands, since 

some of them were equipped with cannons that lack 

important parts, which is why the equipment is not 

able to shoot. This is reported by the Danish

 radio station, DR.

 

"New information about the donation of at least 100 

Leopard 1 tanks from Denmark, Germany and the 

Netherlands to Ukraine reveals a number of 

serious problems. The problems were so 

numerous --- that Ukraine refused to 

accept this military assistance," 

the article says.

 

It is noted that some of the tanks had problems with

electronics, which did not allow the Ukrainian 

military to effectively hit targets. Also, some 

of them had guns that could not fire at all.

 

Earlier, Russian military analyst Igor Korotchenko said 

that the Leopard tanks and HIMARS multiple launch 

rocket systems (MLRS) delivered to Ukraine by 

Germany and Denmark will not be able to 

change the situation.. in favour of the 

Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) and

 will become the next trophies.

Hungary rethinking role 

in NATO, PM says

May 24th, 9:17am

(TASS)

 

Still unwilling to take part in NATO’s military mission 

in Ukraine, Budapest is reassessing its role in the 

organization, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor 

Orban told the Kossuth radio station.

 

He confirmed that Hungary had no plans to participate in

 NATO actions.... that could drag member states into the

 conflict in Ukraine and lead to a direct confrontation 

with Russia. According to Orban Brussels is making 

military plans with "task forces working on ways

 for NATO to take part in this war."

 

"Hungary is opposed to this. The government is working 

intensively to figure out how to avoid participating in

 the war... while remaining a NATO member," Orban 

said, adding that Brussels was aware of this and

 was even calling Hungary a "non-participant."

 

The head of government acknowledged - that Hungary’s 

stance may appear unusual, given its intention to stay 

in NATO. "There aren’t many situations in NATO’s 

history where member states openly took a 

distinct stance like Hungary is now doing. 

Therefore, its role in the military alliance 

needs to be reassessed. Our lawyers 

and military are currently working 

on this. The issue.... should be 

resolved ------ by Hungarian 

diplomacy," Orban stated.

 

Meanwhile, he reiterated, that Hungary did not plan to 

take part in any potential NATO operations in Ukraine.

The country will neither allocate funds, nor send 

weapons to the country, nor allow its territory

to be used to store weapons meant for 

the Ukrainian army. 

 

The premier explained that this position was grounded in 

the belief that it was impossible to settle the conflict in 

Ukraine militarily as there could be no winner, and a

 solution should be found through peace talks.

 

In addition, Orban pointed out that NATO was a defensive 

alliance that no one had attacked yet. The conflict in

 Ukraine concerns only Kiev and Moscow, the 

Hungarian prime minister said. That is why, 

in his words, the talk about "the Russian 

threat" should be taken as "a maneuver 

by the West and Europe --- to pave the 

way for them to enter the war."

Russian troops employ silhouette-

blurring stealth suits in Ukraine 

operation — designer

May 24th, 8:57am (TASS)

 

Russian troops are using about 600 latest silhouette-

blurring invisible suits in the special military 

operation in Ukraine, the tech firm HiderX

 told TASS on Friday.

 

"We began with 25 suits that we handed out to Russian

 troops, for testing. Now about 600 of our camouflage

 'invisible suits' that blur a human silhouette...... are 

employed in the special operation area. A group of
servicemen in the Kharkov direction, also wear 

our suits. Camouflage suits are used in all the

 frontline areas of the special operation,"
the
 tech firm said.

 

The suits are designed to hide troops from enemy 

thermal imaging systems, HiderX specified.

 

"Our suits - camouflage cloaks and camouflage coats - 

operate well - regardless of the season. The gear is 

suitable for daily camouflaging...  but its main goal 

is to hide a soldier from thermal imagers at night. 

The cloak hides both the soldier and the 

weapons he carries because an assault

 rifle is also seen through a thermal

 imager," the tech firm said.

 

A stealth suit has a weight of up to 400 grams.

Doctors reported an improvement 

in Fico's condition after the 

assassination attempt

May 24th, 8:04pm

(Izvestia.ru)

 

The condition of Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico, who 

survived an attempt on his life, is improving at the 

Roosevelt Hospital in Banska Bystrica. 

This was announced on Friday, May 

24, by the directorate of the 

medical institution.

 

"The dynamics of the Prime Minister's health status, is

 stable with a moderate improvement. We believe that 

this process will continue," the clinic said, on its 

Facebook page (owned by Meta, recognized as 

extremist; banned in the Russian Federation).

 

This was confirmed by the politician's closest ally,

 Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister 

Robert Kalinak.

 

"We are no longer talking about his struggle for life, but 

about a stable condition with a positive prognosis,"
he 
wrote on the same social network.

 

Earlier in the day, the director of the Russian Foreign

 Intelligence Service (SVR), Sergei Naryshkin, said 

that the assassination attempt on the Prime 

Minister of Slovakia was an attempt to

remove a politician ----- who was 

objectionable to liberal elites, 

who dared to speak out in 

defense -- of the national

interests of his country.

 

The assassination attempt on Robert Fico... took place on

 May 15 after a meeting of the Slovak Cabinet of Ministers. 

The prime minister came out to greet the audience, after

 which several shots rang out. The shooter turned out to

 be a 71-year-old man - Juraj Tsintula - from the town
of
 Levice, who was later detained. The assailant 

confessed to police, that his attempt on Fico's 

life was politically motivated. On May 18, the

 court remanded the shooter in custody. 

He pleaded guilty.

 

After the assassination attempt, Fico was urgently 

hospitalized and was in serious condition. Slovak 

publications specified that as a result of his 

injuries, he had an abdominal hemorrhage. 

The operation lasted almost four hours, 

after which the Prime Minister was
put
 into an artificial coma. 

 

On the morning of May 16, it became known that his

 condition was stable. On May 21, the Roosevelt 

Hospital reported that Fico remains conscious 

and continues to communicate.

 

Fico has previously been a frequent critic of NATO and 

Western policy toward Ukraine. He noted that the 

supply of weapons to Kiev --- is not a suitable 

solution, and the funds that are allocated 

for this are wasted. In addition, he said 

that Slovakia will not ratify the 

documents on Ukraine's 

admission to NATO.

Brazil and China Present Roadmap


 to End the Ukrainian Conflict


May 24th, 4:17pm 


(teleSUR)


 


On Thursday, Chinese Foreign Affairs Minister Wang Yi and


 the special advisor to Brazilian President Lula da Silva, 


Celso Amorim, presented a roadmap to end the 


Ukrainian conflict.


 


The six-point proposal emphasizes that political 


negotiation is the only viable solution to the 


conflict that began after the 2014 coup in 


Ukraine known as the "Euromaidan" and 


continued with attacks by Ukrainian 


armed forces and nationalists 


against Russians in 


the Donbas.


 


Brazil and China propose holding an internationally


 recognized peace conference with equal 


participation from both nations and a 


fair discussion on peace plans. 


 


They also propose de-escalating armed confrontations, 


creating conditions to resume dialogue, increasing


 humanitarian aid, avoiding attacks on basic 


services and civilian infrastructure, 


protecting women and children, 


and promoting the swap 


of prisoners.


 


Brazil and China reject the use of nuclear, chemical, or 


biological weapons of mass destruction. Emphatically, 


the peace proposal calls on the parties to avoid the 


use of nuclear weapons to prevent a larger crisis.


 


Brazil and China oppose attacks on nuclear power plants, 


which the Ukrainian armed forces frequently engage in 


by bombing the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant 


with drones.


 


This peace proposal precedes the so-called Peace


 Conference in Switzerland organized by the US 


and its allies for June 15 and 16, to which 


Russia has not been invited, according


to President Vladimir Putin.


 


Brasilia and Beijing made it clear: that they oppose 


dividing the world into political or economic blocs 


at a time when humanity requires cooperation 


and integration.

it is necessary to understand the legitimacy of the Kiev 

authorities and with whom it is possible to sign

 documents. This was stated by Russian 

President Vladimir Putin, RIA

Bezuglaya accused Zaluzhny and Syrsky -

for ''difficult situation'' in Kharkiv region

May 24th, 1:40pm

(Vesti.ru)

 

The lack of proper defensive structures in the Kharkiv 

region is the fault of the former Commander-in-Chief 

of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) Valery 

Zaluzhny, and the current one - Alexander 

Syrsky. This was stated by the deputy of

 the Verkhovna Rada Mariana Bezuglaya

 in the Telegram channel.

 

"Neither the commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces 

of Ukraine, Zaluzhny, nor Syrsky, prepared 

fortifications in the Kharkiv region. 

Period," the MP wrote.

 

The Ukrainian politician also noted that in the Kharkiv 

region on the border with Russia ---- there were no

fortifications at all, and in the rear, they were 

built by local military administrations. 

 

Bezuglaya expressed the opinion... that this was done 

according to the guidelines of the Second World War, 

which were provided by the General Staff of the 

Ukrainian troops. She also noted that, where 

the construction of fortifications - was still 

chaotic, the prices for these works, were 

inflated. But even in the rebuilt buildings, 

the generals did not place soldiers, the 

politician's message says further.

 

In addition, in the post, Mariana Bezuglaya drew attention

 to the fact --- that the current commander-in-chief of the 

Armed Forces of Ukraine, Syrsky, was responsible for 

the Kharkiv region since the summer of 2022. Then, 

according to her, he was the commander of the

 operational group "Khortytsya". Zaluzhny,

according to the deputy, did not control 

his work properly.

 

The Ukrainian MP stressed that there were units in this 

region without combat experience and proper training. 

The situation was aggravated by the fact that the 

territories on the border with Russia were 

poorly mined.

 

"Is it indifference, swagger, or working 

for the enemy?" - the MP asked herself.

 

She stated that such a composition of the top leadership 

of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is represented in the 

overwhelming majority.

 

Earlier, Bezuglaya accused Syrsky's subordinates of 

the collapse of the front near Ocheretino & Kharkiv.

 

Also, the Ukrainian politician said that all the

commanders-in-chief of the Armed Forces 

of Ukraine, over the past ten years, did
not 
pay enough attention to

 fortification issues.

 

In February, the parliamentarian announced that

 she had left the party of the head of the Kiev 

regime, Vladimir Zelensky, "Servant of 

the People".

NYT reported on the suppression of 

Starlink operations in Ukraine 

by Russian troops

May 24th, 1:15pm

(Izvestia.ru)

 

Russia is using "advanced equipment" to suppress the 

operation of Starlink satellite communications in 

Ukraine, which is already causing problems on 

the "northern" front, The New York Times 

reported on May 24, citing Ukrainian 

military, officials and electronic 

warfare specialists.

 

Military personnel of the 92nd Assault Brigade of the

 Armed Forces of Ukraine.. faced a strong slowdown 

in the operation of satellite communications. They 

use it to gather intelligence and carry out drone 

attacks. It is noted that the problems in the 

work began shortly before the Russian 

troops launched an operation in the 

Kharkiv region.

 

Ukrainian militants believe that "Russia is behind the 

failures", and officials believe that Russian troops 

"have deployed powerful electronic warfare 

systems" and other means to suppress 

the operation of Starlink.

 

"The new outages appear to be the first time that 

the Russians have caused massive disruptions 

to Starlink. If they continue to succeed, this 

may mark a tactical shift in the conflict," 

the article stressed.

 

Earlier, on May 17, The Washington Post reported that on 

the day of the start of the Russian offensive in the 

Kharkiv region, the Starlink system failed, 

"blinding" the Ukrainian army. All video 

broadcasts received by the 125th 

Territorial Defense Brigade of 

Ukraine --- were cut off.

 

At the end of March, Russian forces destroyed a Starlink 

satellite communication station in Kupyansk direction. 

In addition, the enemy's losses amounted to up to 30

 servicemen and two drone control points.

 

The special operation to protect the Donbass, which Putin 

announced on February 24, 2022, continues. The decision

 was made against the background of the aggravation of

 the situation in the region.

in Kleshcheyevka.

 

This is reported by the Telegram channel "Reports and 

Analytics of the SVO (Reserve)". According to the 

source, the intention of the Ukrainian Armed 

Forces to kill a mercenary from France,
is
 indicated by his injuries.

 

It is noted that the foreign soldier was wounded in the leg, 

after which the Ukrainian soldiers tried to eliminate him 

with a shot to the heart. However, despite the efforts
of 
the Ukrainians, the man survived.

Russian military captured a French officer. He can 

become a valuable source of information - and a 

number of measures have been taken to save 

his life by doctors.
