Putin Welcomes HAMAS to Moscow For SECOND Time -Putin and Xi Refuse to Condemn Hamas Attack on Israel

Putins' Fighter Jets Scrambled as NATO Military Plane Spotted Near Russian Border

Russia Threatens Nuclear Clash as Putins' Right-Hand Man Sends WW3 Warning to US


The chilling threat was made by Russias' foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, local reports claim. Russia has warned it will take "compensatory measures" after the US moved nuclear weapons into Europe in its latest WW3 threat.


BBC 27 OCT 2023



Putin Forming Axis of Terror as He Welcomes Hamas & Iran to Moscow






Moussa Abu Marzook, a senior Hamas leader, was among the delegation to Russia



Putin sought to intervene in the Middle Eastern conflict on Thursday by inviting senior Hamas and Iranian leaders to Moscow.

In a move condemned by Israel as an “obscene step” that “gives support to terrorism”, Russian officials met with the terror group who praised them for taking an “active role” in the war.

Ali Bagheri Kani, the deputy foreign minister of Iran, the main foreign sponsor of Hamas, was also in Moscow for talks.

The developments have raised concern in the West that Russia has formed an “axis of terror” with Hamas, mediated by Iran.

Hamas praised Putin personally for his “stance” on the conflict and “acknowledged the active role of Russian diplomacy” in talks over “the recent Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip and strategies to halt the Israeli crimes”.






A photograph released by Hamas showed Bassem Naeem, its head of international relations, and Mousa Abu Marzouk, a senior member of the Hamas politburo, in a meeting with Mikhail Bogdanov, Putins’ special envoy in the Middle East.


Western observers said the meetings suggested Putin had abandoned his long-standing alliance with Israel in favour of closer ties with Iran and its Islamist allies, who carried out the Oct 7 terror attacks on Israel and have stepped up a bombing campaign on American troops in the wider Middle East.

Lioir Hiat, a spokesman for the Israeli foreign ministry, said Israel “sees the invitation of senior Hamas officials to Moscow as an obscene step that gives support to terrorism and legitimises the atrocities of Hamas terrorists”.

Speaking at the United Nations on Thursday, Iran’s foreign minister said the country was willing to “play its part” in securing the release of Hamas’s hostages, but called for an exchange with 6,000 Palestinians held by Israel.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran stands ready to play its part in this very important humanitarian endeavour, along with Qatar and Turkey,” he said.

“Naturally, the release of the 6,000 Palestinian prisoners is another necessity and responsibility of the global community.”


Both Russia and China have stopped short of condemning Hamas, and have called for a ceasefire that United States officials say would allow Hamas to rest and regroup for a second assault.



On Thursday Maya Yaron, Israel’s de facto ambassador to Taiwan, reiterated her government’s disappointment with China for not condemning Hamas’s attacks against civilians.

“This is actually something that is very disturbing with China,” she told reporters in Taipei.

However, Israeli leaders have said they intend to press on with a land offensive against Hamas, launching a raid in northern Gaza in an attempt to prepare the territory for a full-scale invasion.

Footage from the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) showed tanks, other armoured vehicles and bulldozers crossing into the besieged enclave and appearing to open fire.

An IDF statement said the brief “targeted raid” was part of “preparations for the next stage of combat,” while Yoav Gallant, the Israeli defence minister, said that a full-scale ground invasion of Gaza was “not far off”.

Ukraine War: Whole Family Shot Dead by Russian Soldiers in Russian-Occupied Ukrainian Town.

Nine people, including two young children, have been found shot dead in their house in the Russian-occupied eastern Ukrainian town of Volnovakha.


BBC 1 NOV 2023



















Ukrainian officials say they believe Russian soldiers killed the whole of the Kapkanets family on 27 October for refusing to give them their house.

Russian investigators say two male suspects have been held, saying they are Russian soldiers from the Far East.

Most of the town has been destroyed.



Ukraine and Russia have begun separate investigations into the attack.

Photographs have emerged on social media showing blood-splattered and bullet-riddled bodies lying in beds, some of them still locked in an embrace.

Ukrainian ombudsman Dmytro Lubinets said on Monday that "Russians' bloodied hands were involved" in the Volnovakha killings.

"According to preliminary information, the occupiers have killed the whole of the Kapkanets family, who were celebrating a birthday and who had refused to hand their own house over to occupiers from Chechnya," he said on Telegram.

The Ukrainian-controlled Donetsk prosecutor's office, citing preliminary information, said the attackers in army uniforms shot the family dead after their demand to vacate the house had been rejected.

Two children, born in 2014 and 2018, were among the victims, the office added.

Russia's official Investigations Committee described those arrested as Russian soldiers from the country's Far East, who had signed contracts with the Russian military.

"According to preliminary information, the motive for the crime was a domestic conflict," the committee said in a statement.

Astra, a Russian news channel on Telegram, earlier quoted the victims' neighbours as blaming the Russian military for the killings.

"All of the neighbours are saying that the killers were in the military. We're all scared," one neighbour told Astra.

Baza, another Russian Telegram channel, said members of the household had had "a conflict with unidentified men wearing military fatigues with no insignia".

Volnovakha was captured by Russian forces just weeks after the start of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.


The killings in Volnovakha come as fierce fighting continues on the vast battle front of Ukraine's eastern and southern regions.

Kyiv launched its counter-offensive in June, trying to split the occupying Russian troops in the southern Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions in two, and make their resupply more difficult.

So far, the Ukrainian advance has been slow and costly, as the Russians have had time to prepare their defensive lines.

In recent weeks, Moscow has also been on the attack near the key city of Avdiivka in the Donetsk region, as well as Kupyansk in the north-eastern Kharkiv region.

Ukraine's military says all Moscow's attacks have been "unsuccessful", reporting heavy Russian casualties around Avdiivka - a gateway to the Russian-held regional capital of Donetsk.

World War 3 Fears as Putin Puppet Warns Germany Will Eventually Exist Under Russian Flag

Ukraine Special Forces Destroy $125M Russian Radar Using HIMARS


BBC 6 NOV 2023







Vladimir Solovyov, a close ally of Vladimir Putin, made his latest controversial claims during his show on a Kremlin-controlled television channel.



Vladimir Putin's close ally has astonishingly claimed Germany will eventually exist "under a Russian flag" in an unhinged rant that will explode fears over a possible World War 3.

Ukrainian special forces destroyed Russian radar worth $125m with HIMARS. Elite units posted drone footage documenting their kills of Zoopark-1 radar. The Soviet system is designed to detect incoming enemy artillery fire and pinpoint the guns that fired the shells so they can be destroyed.

However, the radar themselves were targeted by precision rockets. With footage showing five of them being blown up by Ukrainian HIMARS.

Such radar systems are expensive to build, and difficult to replace. Taking them out helps level the playing field between Russia and Ukraine.

Russia-Ukraine War: Putin Likely Successor WARNS of Ukraine Biological Warfare and Hints at New Mobilisation

Putin Ally: West Increasing Risk of Weapons of Mass Destruction Being Used


BBC 20 NOV 2023






Putin and Nikolai Patrushev, Secretary of Russian Security Council, pictured in 2019




Security council secretary Nikolai Patrushev, 72, who is Russias' top security official, is often pegged as the most likely man to succeed Vladimir Putin in the Kremlin

Russias top security official today warned of biological warfare and ordered regional governors to put their economies on a war footing.



Security council secretary Nikolai Patrushev, 72, is seen by some as Vladimir Putin’s likely successor. A strong anti-Western hardliner, he claimed that the conflict in Ukraine could see biological warfare while also suggesting a new round of mobilisation in Russia after heavy losses of conscripts.

“Unauthorised access to collections of dangerous pathogens, destruction and looting of laboratory premises, as well as loss of biological samples, cannot be ruled out….” He warned of Ukraine infecting refugees who travel from war-ravaged areas to Russia.

"The likelihood of committing terrorist acts and sabotage attacks using biological agents has increased”, he said. Critics say Patrushev - seen as wielding huge control in the Kremlin - is deliberately spreading paranoia, and could even signal a Russian false flag plan to use bio-weapons.

Patrushev repeated Moscow's conspiracy theories that the United States has been trying to develop "artificial pathogens and microorganisms" in laboratories set up in Russia's neighbouring countries, including Ukraine.

"Taking into account the risks and threats to biological security, I ask regional heads in cooperation with the federal executive authorities to ensure, first of all, that biologically dangerous facilities be protected against terrorists.”

Russia needed a “sanitary shield”, he said. "It is necessary to develop a system for monitoring biological risks, preventing and eliminating biological threats, and neutralising the fallout from their use.”

He demanded officials “ensure the work of the necessary number of radiation and chemical monitoring stations of civil defence facilities in the regions”. Russia must “expand the production of domestic vaccines and drugs against infections”, he insisted in a speech in Voronezh.

Patrushev - formerly head of the FSB security service - demanded more action from border regions to protect Russia against drone attacks from Ukraine. Regional governors must ensure that mobilisation plans for the economy of the Russian regions and municipalities are developed”.

This is seen as a strong hint that a new wave of mobilisation is coming. "I ask the heads of regions and federal executive authorities to personally control the implementation of these tasks,” he said.


“Specific attention should be paid to the safety of bio-hazardous facilities.”







Putin was briefly seen today chairing a security council meeting but it was Patrushev who cranked up fears among Russians and Ukrainian and Western biological threats.

"There is a high probability of the Ukrainian side completely losing control over biological facilities,” he said.

Russia-Ukraine WAR: Ukraine Will Join NATO After War, Stoltenberg Says; Estimates of 1,000 Russian Daily Casualties Plausible, Says UK

Jens Stoltenberg says Nato will agree recommendations for Ukrainians; Russian losses in Avdiivka could account for one of most difficult months for Russia


BBC 28 NOV 2023









NATO Standards in Former Warsaw Pact Countries



Summary

Ukraine will become a member of Nato subject to reforms after the war, the military alliance’s secretary general, Jens Stoltenberg, has said. Nato states still agreed that full membership remained impossible in the midst of war, even while ways to move Ukraine and Nato closer continued, he added.

The Nato secretary-general said that some of the most intense fighting of the war has taken place in recent weeks in the east of Ukraine. Russian forces have made confirmed advances north-west and south-east of Avdiivka over the weekend, according to the US-based Institute for the Study of War.

The UK ministry of defence has described as “plausible” Ukrainian estimates of Russian casualties running at a daily average of almost 1,000 in November. This would, on the face of it, make November 2023 one of the most difficult months for Russian forces, with many of its losses coming from its assault on Avdiivka – although figures on Ukrainian losses were not provided.

Oh Crap! re: PUTIN Copies Netanyahu & BOMBS Childrens' Hospital Injuring 53

'I Need MORE Troops' -Deranged Putin Orders Russian Women to Have Eight or More Children

Vladimir Putin told Russian women they needed to be having 'eight or more children' as his war in Ukraine worsens a dive in the population and makes them reluctant to start new families

BBC 29 NOV 2023









The huge country of 143.4 million people has seen a huge dive in birth rates over recent years - with the president's disastrous invasion of Ukraine blamed for putting off even more people from having kids.


And with an estimated over 100,000 troops now dead since fighting started, he is now demanding that Russians go back to the tsarist era, when large families were more common. Putin himself is believed to have at least six children to three different partners - although he only publicly admits to two daughters.

In a controversial new video, he instructed Russians to give birth to more children - and promised they would get state support for “motherhood”. Putin said: “Thank God many of our people have a tradition of a strong multi-generational family, raising four, five and more children.

Let us remember how in Russian families many of our grandmothers and great grandmothers had seven, eight, or even more children. Let's preserve and revive these wonderful traditions. Having many children, a large family, should become a norm, a way of life for all the peoples of Russia. A family is not just the foundation for state and society, it is a spiritual phenomenon, the source of morality.”

He added that "support for family, motherhood, childhood should cover the work of all areas of government "without exception", with economic, social, infrastructure policies, education and health care among the areas where the principle would be applied. His plea follows a 555,000 fall in the Russian population in the first year of Putin’s war, with many families now too nervous to start or increase their families as more men are sent off to the front line.

Russia's crashing economy also discourages families from having children, according to demographers. The average number of babies per woman is currently 1.42 - well below the replacement rate of 2.1. His country is also making abortions harder to get, with several regions banning them in private clinics.




Putin keeps his private life secret, but his daughter Katerina Tikhonova, 37, is a dancer-turned-mathematician

Ukraines' Secret Service Assassinated Illya Kyva, Ex-MP Traitor in Russia After He Supported The War

Illya Kyva was kicked out of parliament and defected to Russia weeks after Moscow launched its military offensive last year and has now been assassinated by Ukraine


The Guardian 9 DEC 2023






Ilya Kyva, who claimed Volodymyr Zelensky was an MI6 stooge..The former Ukrainian MP has been assassinated in Russia by Ukraine for being a traitor






Moment Russian sabotage cell was captured by Ukrainian secret service


Illya Kyva was shot dead in the village of Suponevo, to the west of Moscow, after he called Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky a cocaine addict. The man was a Kremlin propagandist and one of Putin's puppets, who appeared obediently on state TV shows and had alleged Zelensky was an MI6 stooge.



A source in Ukraine's defence sector told AFP that its SBU security services had orchestrated the assassination of the man who was kicked out of parliament and defected to Russia weeks after Moscow launched its military offensive last year.

Andriy Yusov, a spokesman for Ukraine’s military intelligence, said in televised remarks that Kyva was "done", adding that "the same fate will befall other traitors of Ukraine and accomplices of Putin’s regime." He said: "We can confirm that Kyva is done. Such a fate will befall other traitors of Ukraine, as well as the henchmen of the Putin regime." Yusov also called Kyva "one of the biggest scumbags, traitors and collaborators" and said his death was "justice."

Before going over to the Russian side, Kyva had fought against Moscow-backed separatist rebels in Ukraine’s eastern region of Donetsk and was elected to parliament in 2019. Since his flight to Moscow, Kyva was a frequent participant in talk shows on Russian state television during which he blasted the Ukrainian leadership.

Last month, a court in Ukraine sentenced him to 14 years in prison in absentia on charges of treason. Kyva’s killing follows a slew of other attacks on prominent war supporters in Russia. In August 2022, Darya Dugina, the daughter of Russian nationalist ideologist Alexander Dugin, died in a car bomb explosion outside Moscow.

Meanwhile, intensifying Russian attacks on Ukraine’s energy facilities are worsening humanitarian conditions across the war-torn country, where heavy snow and freezing temperatures have already arrived, UN officials said Wednesday.

Assistant Secretary-General Miroslav Jenca told the UN Security Council that Russia’s continuing daily attacks on Ukraine’s critical civilian infrastructure have resulted in civilian casualties, and Moscow recently escalated its barrages in populated areas including the capital, Kyiv.

He said: "All attacks against civilians and civilian infrastructure must stop immediately. They are prohibited under international humanitarian law and are simply unacceptable." Jenca also raised the risks to all four of Ukraine’s nuclear power plants.

The Zaporizhzhia plant, which is Europe’s largest, suffered its eighth complete off-site power outage since the invasion on Saturday, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Jenca said. Ramesh Rajasingham, the UN humanitarian coordinator, told the council "The deaths, injuries and level of destruction of vital civilian infrastructure is staggering."

After more than 21 months of fighting since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Rajasingham said, "millions of children, women and men are now faced with the prospect of yet another winter of severe hardship amid the impact of increased attacks on hospitals, electricity transmission systems, and gas and water supplies."

HUGE Explosions Injuring 53 as Russia Bomb Kyiv Childrens' Hospital

Fallen debris from Russian ballistic missiles injured at least 53 people in Ukraine including children as a paediatric hospital and an apartment building were hit in the blast

Daily Mail 13 DEC 2023










Ukraines’ capital was hit by a huge ballistic missile attack early this morning, injuring over 50 people and damaging an apartment building and a children's hospital, the mayor said.


The Ukrainian air force said Russia launched 10 ballistic missiles at Kyiv and all were intercepted by air defences. But fallen debris fell in the eastern Dniprovskyi district, injuring at least 53 people, Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said on the Telegram messaging app.

Twenty people, including two children, were hospitalised while 33 people received medical treatment on the spot. An apartment building, a private house and several cars caught fire, while the windows of a children's hospital were shattered, Klitschko said. Falling rocket debris also damaged the water supply system in the district.

Also on Monday, a Russian missile attack destroyed several homes on the outskirts of Kyiv and left more than 100 households temporarily without electricity. As winter sets in and hampers troop movements, Ukrainian officials have warned that Russia will target energy infrastructure to cause power outages and blackouts like it did last winter.



While the worlds' attention is elsewhere, Russian President Vladimir Putin is still raining hell on innocent Ukrainians. The bombardment came two days after another attack on Kyiv with ballistic missiles and attack drones.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had left for Washington earlier that day, hoping to rally waning American support for his country. Russia has often used Zelensky's visits abroad to launch waves of major attacks.

PUTIN Will Thank US Republicans For Great Christmas Gift - No Help For Ukraine

U.S. Aid to Ukraine: Biden Cautions Congress Against Giving Putin Greatest Christmas Gift They Could Possibly Give..

Republicans Have Balked at The US Providing Additional Help For Ukraine

BBC 14 DEC 2023





American President, Joe Biden, has called on Congress not to give Russian dictator Vladimir Putin a "gift" and to approve aid to Ukraine before Congress goes on holiday, says President Biden at a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Biden emphasized that Congress should pass additional funding for Ukraine before they take a break for the holiday season.


"Congress needs to pass the supplemental funding for Ukraine before they break for the holiday recess. Before they give Putin the greatest Christmas gift they could possibly give him," the U.S. President stated.

It is worth noting that the funds allocated for military aid to Ukraine from the United States are running out. In light of this, President Joe Biden has requested over $100 billion from Congress, including over $60 billion for Ukraine.

Russia has lost a staggering 87 percent of the total number of active-duty ground troops it had prior to launching its invasion of Ukraine and two-thirds of its pre-invasion tanks, a source familiar with a declassified US intelligence assessment provided to Congress told CNN.

Still, despite heavy losses of men and equipment, Russian President Vladimir Putin is determined to push forward as the war approaches its two-year anniversary early next year and US officials are warning that Ukraine remains deeply vulnerable. A highly anticipated Ukrainian counteroffensive stagnated through the fall, and US officials believe that Kyiv is unlikely to make any major gains over the coming months.

The assessment, sent to Capitol Hill on Monday, comes as some Republicans have balked at the US providing additional funding for Ukraine and the Biden administration has launched a full-court press to try to get supplemental funding through Congress.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is in Washington on Tuesday, meeting with US lawmakers and President Joe Biden in desperate bid to secure the military and economic aid he says is vital to Ukraine’s ability to maintain the fight against Russia.

HUGE Explosion as Ukraine Strikes Crimea Port Damaging Russian Warship

Putins' Mouthpiece Blames BRITAIN For Being Behind Kremlins' Humiliation After Russian Warship Was Obliterated by Ukraine Strike:

'It was not Ukraine, but Britain that struck the port of Feodosia'


DESPERATE Ukraine to Recall Men From Abroad to Serve on The Frontlines

US Releases Last Military Aid For Kyiv -US Aid to Ukraine Worth Some $250m (£195m). Includes Air Defence, Artillery and Small Arms Ammunition, and Anti-Tank Weapons


Daily Mail 28 DEC 2023






Britain has been directly blamed in Russia for waging war on Putin and being behind the dramatic destruction of landing ship Novocherkassk in annexed Crimea.






Footage showed a raging inferno in the Crimean port after the attack early on Boxing Day, with the governor of the Russian-occupied territory admitting at least one person had been killed


Pro-Putin political analyst Sergey Markov said the UK had been emboldened in its backing for Kyiv because Moscow did not hit back against London.

He implied a British-supplied Storm Shadow missile attack was responsible for the sinking of a key assault ship believed to have been loaded with munitions overnight.

'In fact, it was not Ukraine, but Britain that struck the port of Feodosia,' he said, listing 'British missiles', 'British and American satellite recon', 'missile guidance by British officers' and 'the joint British-American-Ukrainian decision to strike' as evidence to back his assertions.

'This is a war between Britain and Russia at the hands of the Ukrainian proxy army,' he went on. 'And Britain will continue this war because Russia does not answer to Britain.'





An explosion shook the port of Feodosia in Crimea on Boxing Day as Ukraine claimed that its missile attack had destroyed a major Russian Navy vessel.





The Novercherkassk normally carries 87 sailors. Their fates are not currently known

Oh Crap! Re: TRUTH Why US GOP Congress Backs Gaza & NOT Ukraine War-PRO~Israel $$ DONATIONS

Revealed: GOP Congress Backers of Gaza War Received Most $$$$ From PRO-Israel DONORS

Guardian analysis finds top recipients of PRO-Israel contributions in last elections were centrists who defeated progressives in primaries


The Guardian 11 JAN 2024







Congress members who were more supportive of Israel at the start of the Gaza war received over $100,000 more on average from pro-Israel donors during their last election than those who most supported Palestine, a Guardian analysis of campaign data shows.




Those who took more money most often called for US military support and backed Israel’s response, even as Gaza’s civilian death toll mounted, the findings show. The analysis, which looks at positions taken during the war’s first six weeks, does not prove any particular member changed their position because they received pro-Israel campaign donations.

However, some campaign finance experts who viewed the data argue that donor spending helped fuel Congress’s overwhelming support for Israel.

The analysis compared campaign contributions from pro-Israel groups and individuals to almost every member of the current Congress with each lawmaker’s statements on the war through mid-November.

About 82% of GOP Congress members were more supportive of Israel, and just 9% more supportive of Palestine during this period. The remainder had “mixed” views.


Legislators categorized as supportive of Israel received about $125,000 on average during their last election, while those supportive of Palestine on average took about $18,000.
The volume and breadth of the donors’ spending is considerable: over $58m went to current Congress members, and all but 33 received donations.

The mayor of a southern Russian city near the border with Ukraine has declared a state of emergency after what officials said was a Kyiv-launched drone attack that damaged several buildings and wounded a child.


Vadim Kstenin, the mayor of Voronezh City, claimed that nearly three dozen apartments had been damaged in a drone attack overnight.

Russian news outlet Shot reported on Telegram that at least 15 blasts were heard near an air base just outside the city, while some drone debris fell nearby onto an apartment building. Footage posted by the governor of Voronezh (pictured below) has since appeared to show that building.

The Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) claimed they destroyed five drones in the region, which is roughly 170 miles from the border with Ukraine, and intercepted three more.

“I ask Voronezh residents not to worry - we are introducing a state of emergency so that we can quickly make decisions,” wrote Kstenin. The governor of the region, Alexander Gusev, claimed an 11-year-old girl was injured in the attack.

Ukraine has not commented on the strike. The air base near Voronezh City is known host to some Sukhoi Su-34s bombers, according to Russian media. The Kremlin often deploys fighter-bomber aircraft during air strikes...

BREAKING...

Latest: Kyiv To Throw Moscow 'From The Skies’ After More Drone Strikes by Putins’ Forces





Russia claimed that Ukraine fired at least 12 drones across the border, targeting the Voronezh and Belgorod regions


Ukraines’ priority for 2024 is to “throw Russia from the skies”, Kyiv’s top diplomat has said, after the Kremlin fired nearly two dozen drones and missiles over the border.


“In 2024, of course the priority is to throw Russia from the skies,” Dmytryo Kuleba, Ukraine’s foreign minister, told a conference in Davos, Switzerland. “Because the one who controls the skies will define when and how the war will end.”

His comments augur the arrival of the first batch of F-16 fighter jets in Ukraine later this year, which Kyiv has been requesting since the start of the war.

Kyiv views these fighter jets as the key to unlocking air superiority over the Russians, which in turn, they believe, could prove invaluable to their aims to remove Kremlin forces from Ukraine.

It comes as at least 20 civilians have been injured after Russia fired nearly two dozen drones and missiles across Ukraine, according to local officials.

Ukraines interior minister Ihor Klymenko reported that it had been “a difficult night for Odessa and Kharkiv”, cities in the south and north east of Ukraine respectively.

Putins' Armageddon Attack Causes Ukraine Gas Pipeline Blast and 10 Thunderous Explosions

A blistering Russian attack led to the explosion of a pipeline in Kharkiv, Ukraine, as further missiles rained down on Kyiv, with a total of two people killed and 13 injured, including a young girl


MailOnline 24 JAN 2024





Kyiv was struck with 10 explosions




Two were killed and 13 hospitalised


A blistering Armageddon attack by Vladimir Putin on Ukraine saw a gas pipeline explode in Kharkiv and residential buildings hit in Kyiv.


There were distressing reports of civilian casualties after Russia deployed its strategic missile aircraft to unleash missiles onto cities. A total of three dead and 13 wounded were reported across Ukraine, amid fears the numbers would rise. Nine were reported wounded in Kyiv where black smoke rose over the skyline with a residential building hit, and one was killed in a separate missile strike on Pavlohrad.

*Kyiv was rocked by 10 thunderous explosions. Kharkiv faced at least seven explosions with power lost in a number of districts. A multi-storey residential building in Kharkiv was completely destroyed as a result of Russian missile fire. Two were reported killed, 13 wounded hospitalised including a girl, 10. Children were reported with shrapnel wounds. Two women were in serious condition.

Rescuers were removing the rubble, where people might be trapped, the local authorities reported. Explosions were also reported in the Sumy region, Dnepropetrovsk region and Zhitomyr.

In Kyiv’s Svyatoshinsky district, a building and cars were on fire, and there were claims of debris hitting a kindergarten. In Solomensky district, windows in an apartment building were smashed by a blast wave. One victim was hospitalised.

In Pechersky district, a non-residential building was hit. Emergency services were at the scene. At least eight were hospitalised in Kyiv. A Kh-101 missile was seen firing heat traps during a strike on Kyiv.

Kyiv mayor Vitalii Klitchko said: “An unexploded warhead of a rocket was found in one of the apartments in a residential building in Sviatoshynsky district. People are being evacuated from the house.”

Russia Accuses Kyiv of Downing Plane Carrying Ukrainian Prisoners of War

Dramatic video shows an out-of-control Ilyushin Il-76 plunging from the sky and smashing into the ground in front of horrified locals in the Belgorod region near Ukraine's border yesterday.

Russia said that the 65 POWs, six Russian crew and three escorts on board were all killed in the deadly plane crash. Hours after the tragedy, both Russia and Ukraine quickly pinned the blame on one another.

Without providing evidence Moscow accused Ukraine of killing its own POWs, while Kyiv demanded an international inquiry and called for full clarification of the circumstances of the incident.

President Zelensky, in his evening address, said: 'It is clear that the Russians are playing with the lives of Ukrainian prisoners, the feelings of their loved ones and the emotions of our society.'

Vladimir Putin Set to Simulate Nuclear Explosions With New Secret Technology. Putin Threatens West in a Rare Visit to Kaliningrad

Russian President Vladimir Putin is set to utilise his secret new technology in huge military drills to simulate nuclear explosions, as the war in Ukraine marches on


Calm President Biden to Vladimir Putin on Threat of Nuclear War: 'DONT'


MailOnline 27 JAN 2024





Vladimir Putin is set to utilise his new technology to simulate nuclear war, according to reports.


The Russian President has developed a new method to mimic an incoming atomic bomb, and will consequently stage several military drills. The latest news comes amid his nation threatening to take the violence in Ukraine up a level by engaging in nuclear war.

Experts have declared that Khrulev Military Academy in St Petersburg is responsible for creating the technology which can simulate the mushroom cloud impact that nuclear explosions are renowned for.

According to state news agency, ITAR_TASS, the patent document claims: “The purpose of the model is to simulate what a nuclear strike looks like - the shock effect, flash of light and the mushroom cloud of a ground-based nuclear explosion.”

*The Moscow Times reported that the invention will be utilised to: "Train radiation, chemical and biological intelligence units to determine the parameters of the epicentre of a nuclear explosion."

Fearing the potential consequences of nuclear war, the International Institue for Strategic Studies warns of Russia's potential readiness to deploy non-strategic or tactical - nuclear weapons. Their report claimed:

"A particularly troubling trend from a Western perspective is Russia’s belief in its ability to achieve and maintain dominance in an escalating environment, and to compensate for losses of personnel and equipment to a degree unimaginable to the West.


“In its war on Ukraine, Russia has used direct nuclear signalling to the US and NATO with its strategic and theatre nuclear forces. More recently, it has shown with Belarus that it sees NSNW [non-strategic nuclear weapons] as a useful tool to exert further control over its near-abroad and increase its coercive power against NATO.”

The report added: "The more that can be understood of Russian doctrine and military thought related to NSNW, the more likely it is that deterrence with Russia can be maintained. Understanding Russia and maintaining deterrence vis-à-vis Russia is a matter of survival for the West.”

Revoking Russia's ratification of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, Putin is allegedly planning to restart atomic bomb testing in the Arctic, supposedly ordering defence minister, Sergei Shoigu, to imminently prepare to resume proceedings.




The notorious President is currently mocking the West with a major exhibition in Moscow. Putin is showcasing the most powerful bomb in human history - the infamous 50-megaton AN602 'Tsar Bomba'.

The massive statement is proof of the 71-year-old's defiance of the West, indicating that he will not let their concerns prevent him from restarting nuclear tests.

Supporting his longtime associate, the head of Kurchatov Nuclear Institute, Mikhail Kovalchuk, said: "I think this is a correct idea."

Secret EU Plan To Sabotage Hungarian Economy Revealed as Anger Mounts at Orbán

Hungarian Leader Viktor Orbán Refused to Green Light Funding to Help Finance Ukraines' Fight Against Russia


Brussels’ fury grows over Budapests’ ‘Policy of Blackmail’ in continuing to hold up £50bn support package For Ukraine


The Guardian 30 JAN 2024






The EU has tried to use funding as a tool to force Hungary into line on policies and the application of the rule of law.



Officials in Brussels have reportedly drawn up a secret plan to sabotage Hungary’s economy if Viktor Orbán decides this week to again block a €50bn support package for Ukraine.


The plan, reported by the Financial Times, reflects the fury mounting across European capitals at what one diplomat called the “policy of blackmail” being pursued by the Hungarian prime minister, who leads the bloc’s most pro-Russia state.

The FT said the strategy involved targeting Hungarys’ economy, weakening its currency and reducing investor confidence.

Orbán blocked the €50bn in Ukraine funds in December, forcing an emergency leaders meeting to be scheduled on Thursday to revisit the matter.

According to the FT, the document declares that “in the case of no agreement in the February 1 [summit], other heads of state and government would publicly declare that in the light of the unconstructive behaviour of the Hungarian PM  …  they cannot imagine that [EU funds would be provided to Budapest]”.

Sources on Monday said EU capitals were still hopeful of a deal with Orbán and see the leak as a high-risk political move that could backfire. The Hungarian currency, the forint, depreciated by 0.7% on Monday, briefly down to a low against the euro last seen in October.

Hungarys’ economy is heavily reliant on the single market, with nearly all its exports going across the border to neighbouring countries. According to European Commission data, intra-EU trade accounts for 78% of Hungary’s exports (Germany 28%, Romania, Slovakia, Austria and Italy all 5%), while 3% goes to the US and 3% to the UK.

The EU has already tried to use funds as a tool to force Hungary into line on policies and the application of the rule of law, a basic requirement of membership of the bloc; €20bn of funds are frozen over concerns about LGBTQ+ rights and other issues.

János Bóka, Hungary’s EU minister, told the FT that his country “does not give in to pressure” and there was no connection between Ukraine and general access to EU funds. “Hungary has and will continue to participate constructively in the negotiations,” he said.

On Monday he wrote on X: “The document, drafted by Brussels bureaucrats only confirms what the Hungarian government has been saying for a long time: access to EU funds is used for political blackmailing by Brussels.”

An EU source said: “The reality is Hungary has not really been flexible on this. The member state level of frustration is increasing. It is higher than in December.”

Ukraine sinks $70M Russian warship Ivanovets in the Black Sea using boat drones

Ukraines' armed forces claimed to have sunk another Russian warship using kamikaze attack drones in a formidable strike off the coastline of Crimea.


Footage shared by the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence showed how its unmanned seafaring vessels bore down on the £55 million Black Sea missile ship Ivanovets.

The 184ft warship was hit by multiple drones off annexed Crimea and was reportedly sunk after suffering massive hull damage.

Ivanovets was in sea lake Donuzlav, a bay in the west of Crimea used for military vessels, when it came under attack.

The fate of the crew - who resisted the attack and shot at the drones - is not known.

Neither the Russian Ministry of Defence nor the Navy have officially confirmed the strike, but a slew of pro-war military channels on Telegram have corroborated Ukrainian reports.

As a result of a number of direct hits to the hull, the Russian ship received damage that was incompatible with further movement - the Ivanovets tilted to the stern and sank,' said Military Informant Telegram channel.


One reported: 'We must give credit to the crew. They fought to the last.

Putin:'I DONT Want World War III - World War III Would Bring All Humanity to Brink of Destruction'

He told US talk show host Tucker Carlson in an interview today that they 'simply don't have any interest' in expanding the war in Ukraine




Vladimir Putin played down fears of World War Three last night by claiming the prospect of Russia invading Poland or Latvia was 'out of the question'.




Russian soldiers load a rocket into a launcher on a mission at an undisclosed location in Ukraine in a photo released yesterday




The President said the Kremlin 'simply don't have any interest' in expanding the war in Ukraine and suggested such a conflict would 'bring all humanity to the brink of destruction'.

Putin made the comments in an interview with US talk show host Tucker Carlson, his first with a Western journalist since before Russia's invasion of Ukraine nearly two years ago.

He also claimed military defeat for his troops was 'impossible' in a remarkable two-hour sit down in which he also said Boris Johnson scuppered a deal to end the fighting 18 months ago.

Asked if he could imagine a scenario where his troops would be sent to Poland, Putin told Carlson: 'Only in one case, if Poland attacks Russia. We have no interest in Poland, Latvia or anywhere else.

'Why would we do that? We simply don't have any interest. It is absolutely out of the question.'


Vladimir Putin outrageously claimed last night that he was read to sign a deal to end the war with Ukraine 18 months ago but Boris Johnson scuppered the deal


Fears of WWIII were raised when Admiral Rob Bauer, the chairman of NATO's Military Committee urged both civilians and governments to prepare for cataclysmic conflicts and the chilling prospect of being conscripted.

'We have to realise it's not a given that we are in peace. And that's why we [NATO forces] have the plans, that's why we are preparing for a conflict with Russia,' Bauer told reporters last month after a meeting of NATO defence chiefs in Brussels.

'But the discussion is much wider. It is also the industrial base and also the people that have to understand they play a role.'

n a stark warning, he said civilians must be ready for a conflict in the next 20 years that would require wholesale change in their lives.

The governments of Estonia, Sweden and now the UK have already warned their respective nations that the prospect of large-scale war is on the horizon.

Putin outrageously claimed last night that he was ready to sign a deal to end the war with Ukraine a year asnd a half ago but Mr Johnson scuppered the deal.

He claimed the former Prime Minister 'dissuaded' the leader of Ukraine's leading party from signing the document and said it 'was better to fight Russia' in the interview with Carlson.

The Kremlin said Putin agreed to the interview because the approach of the former Fox News host 'differed from the one-sided reporting of the Ukraine conflict'.

The President was allowed to drone on unchallenged for long chunks of time as he gave a rambling history lesson about Russia dating back to the year 800.

He claimed that Davyd Arakhamia, the head of Ukraine's ruing party, put his 'preliminary signature' on the deal after direct negotiations with Russians in Istanbul.

Mr Putin said: 'But then he [Arakhamia] publicly stated to the whole world, we were ready to sign this document but Mr Johnson, then the Prime Minister, came and dissuaded us from doing this, saying it was better to fight Russia.

'They would give everything needed for us to return what was lost during the clashes with Russia. And we agreed with this proposal'.

Mr Putin went on: 'And the fact that they obey the demand or persuasion of Mr Johnson, the former Prime Minister of Great Britain, seems ridiculous.

'And it's very sad to me because, as Mr Arakhamia put it, we could have stopped those hostilities with war a year and a half ago already. But the British persuaded us and we refused this. Where is Mr Johnson now? And the war continues.'

He accused the US of telling Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to refuse to negotiate any deal and said he wanted to agree a settlement.

'And we made it [a deal],' he said.

'We prepared the huge document in Istanbul that was initialed by the head of the Ukrainian delegation. He had fixed his signature to some of the provisions, not to all of it. He put his signature and then he himself said, we were ready to sign it, and the war would have been over long ago. Eighteen months ago.

'However, Prime Minister Johnson came, talk to us out of it and we missed that chance. Well, you missed it. You made a mistake. Let them get back to that.'

The Kremlin has previously suggested Mr Johnson's trip to Kyiv in April 2022 as an intervention to derail any peace deal and would have seen Russia withdrawing its troops.

The deal would have seen Ukraine abandoning its plans to join Nato and accepting neutrality.

'This Mission Will Go Down in History': British, Canadian, Irish, Australian and US Fighters Storm Frontline Trenches Killing 22 Russians, Whilst Being Bombarded With Suicide Drones in Mission That Left Brit Injured

Ukraine Have Sunk Russian Landing Ship in Drone Attack


Military intelligence releases video it says shows drones taking on vessel from Moscow’s Black Sea fleet off Crimea

MailOnline 15 FEB 2024
















The British fighter is seen lying on the floor after being shot by the Russian soldier


New heart-stopping battleground footage has captured the moment a unit made up of English-speaking foreign fighters 'killed 22 Russian soldiers' as they stormed a trench in Ukraine.


The unit, formed of Ukrainian soldiers as well as British, Canadian, Irish and Australians, came under intense drone bombardment as it carried out its mission to capture a tactically 'dominant' location near Avdiivka, Eastern Ukraine.


Footage of the assault - which left at least one British fighter injured - was released online on Tuesday by the 59th Motor Rifle Brigade, which added commentary to the clips.

The commander of the company does not reveal the exact location of the assault, instead referring to the position as '105-106 Heights'.

He describes the combat seen in the footage as the most brutal fight his unit has experienced when fighting for a position, telling viewers 'the [Russian] opponents concentrated a lot of resources to hold it'.








'I think this [mission] will go down in history as an exemplary assault, which was performed with character and constant pressure on the enemy,' he said, introducing the intense 16-minute video of brutal, real-world combat.


















New heart-stopping battleground footage has captured the moment a unit made up of foreign fighters 'killed 22 Russian soldiers' as they stormed a trench in Ukraine.


A soldier in the unit largely made up of foreign fighters is seen advancing through the trench. Throughout the assault, soldiers on the Ukrainian side were reported to have killed 22 Russian enemies while taking two captive. It was unclear how many casualties the brigade suffered

The heartstopping footage opens with a convoy of Ukrainian trucks speeding down the side of a row of trees lining vast, open, bombed-out fields, in August last year

Instantly the sound of gunfire is heard being exchanged between the mounted machine guns on the trucks and the Russian soldiers hiding in the trenches which are hidden in the trees


Filmed by drones and body-mounted cameras, the footage shows the Brigade's assault units Alpha, Bravo and Charlie storm the trenches under a hail of bullets and eliminate several Russian soldiers who have hunkered down there.

It opens with the Ukrainian troops in a convoy of armoured military trucks - speeding down the side of a row of dead trees lining vast, open, bombed-out fields.

A date stamp on the footage - released by Ukrainian YouTube channel Butusov Plus - shows that it was filmed on August 23, 2023.

Instantly the sound of gunfire is heard being exchanged between the mounted machine guns on the trucks and the Russian soldiers hiding in the trenches.

'F***ng hell,' one of the fighters can be heard saying in a thick English accent. Another, in an American accent this time, says: 'That's Russian.'

As the trucks slow down and the fighters prepare to launch their assault on foot, one of the armoured vehicles is hit by an explosion, launching dirt into the air.

Undeterred, the camouflaged-clad gunmen press on, climbing out of the trucks and taking up positions to provide covering fire for their comrades.

To shouts of 'push up' over the din of gunfire, the unit begins to advance on the trenches. One of the trucks is seen heavily damaged, with soldiers climbing out. It doesn't appear that any of them were badly injured.

One of the soldiers filming the attack shouts 'frag out' before hurling a grenade into the sparsely wooded area, where the Russians are bedded down in cover.

Drone footage is interspersed with the first-person combat footage, using superimposed flags to show where the Alpha, Bravo and Charlie units are in relation to the Russians in the trenches.

The video shows the treeline, and how the three units of the Ukrainian side worked to surround two Russian units, sending one down the middle and two either side.

Despite coming under intense fire and several explosions going rocking the ground around them, Ukraine's fighters are seen swiftly advancing to the treeline.

The footage shows one member of the Alpha group shoot dead at one enemy soldier, who makes the fatal error of leaving the cover of the trenches.

Another Russian soldier seen lying on the floor of the trench, and is also seen being shot as one of the Ukrainian fighters advances.

With the Ukrainian fighters now embedded in the trenches, the sound of a drone can be heard buzzing in overhead, forcing the soldiers to take cover.

'Suicide drone!' the soldiers can be heard shouting to each other as a warning.

The footage then cuts to the camera mounted on a Canadian's helmet, who shouts to his comrades 'I'm hit!'

He appears to be covered in dirt, suggesting he was close to where the Russian suicide drone struck. 'Coming mate, coming,' an Australian fighter is heard saying as he rushes to his comrade's aid.

The Canadian's hands are visibly shaking, but after a check-up, the Australian tells him that he 'looks good', encouraging him to get back on his feet.


The Canadian is not able to stand, but crawls through the trench to cover.


The footage then cuts to a drone filming the Charlie team, which appears to be made up of six soldiers - all bearing down on a Russian position which looks to include an enemy fighter with a grenade launcher.

Several explosions send them to the ground, but they all get back on their feet quickly and continue to push on.

At the other end of the trench, the Alpha and Bravo teams have a group of Russian soldiers pinned down, and are inching their way towards the position.

The Ukrainian drone hovering above the battlefield shows that one of the Russian soldiers is badly wounded and is being treated on the floor of the trench.

However, as a British soldier from Alpha unit approaches a nearby bend in the trench, the wounded Russian soldier is able to fire off a hail of bullets from his machine gun - blasting the Brit with several rounds, sending him flying backwards.


'Man down!' one of the fighters on the Ukrainian side shouts as they return fire.

Two of the fighters of the Ukrainian side push further up the trench while another brings up the rear to give medical aid to the British soldier.

Miraculously, he survived the initial burst of gunfire, and can be seen moving.

To add to the chaos in the trenches, another suicide drone is seen overhead and mercifully slams down into the ground a matter of feet away from Alpha's position.

With the drone missing its target, a fighter with an American accent continues to assist his downed comrade, whose nickname appears to be 'Mossy'.

'Alright Mossy,' he says. 'I'm going to have to molest you a little bit so I can get these grenades out of you,' while helping him to lift his arms slightly. Although dazed, 'Mossy' appears to be responsive and moving as his comrade retrieves grenades.

Re-armed with the explosives, Alpha unit is then able to advance further down the trenches and take out the surrounded Russia position. Blurred footage later shows the body of the Russian soldier who shot the British fighter on the ground.

The footage cuts again, this time to fighters in Bravo squad - two of which are seen hunkered down in a ditch littered with debris and fallen trees, while another two are seen in a small bunker dug into the ground.

The commentary by the 59th Motor Rifle Brigade's commander returns again briefly.

With one flank of the Russian defence wiped out, he explains that the units - Alfa-Bravo to the left and Charlie to the right - are in a 'difficult moment' as they close in on the remaining surrounded Russia position.

He explains that the Russians are dug between two positions, with five enemy soldiers having taken cover in holes in the ground. There is a risk, he says, of friendly fire, as the Ukrainian troops approach from both sides.

This, he says, means the Ukrainian units have to be patient and wait until they can take shots at the Russians without hitting their comrades on the other side.

Back with a camera mounted on a Bravo team soldier, the footage shows two Russian soldiers suddenly running through the trees - out of cover.

The soldier with the camera shoots one, but the other runs towards the Ukrainian fighter's position and into the trench - close enough to see his face.





He appears confused, lost almost, and unarmed. He holds his hands up in front of his body, and the white 'Z' of the Russian army is visible on his armoured vest.


Meanwhile, the fighter with the camera, who appears to have an American accent, can be heard shouting 'what the f***' - before the Russian sprints away again.

The remainder of the footage - shot by a drone - shows the Ukrainian units gradually picking off the remaining enemy soldiers one by one, completing the mission.

It was not immediately clear how many casualties the Ukrainian units took, but it was reported online that a total of 22 Russian soldiers were killed, and two captured.

Avdiivka has become a deadly flash-point in the almost two-year long war.

In 2023, Ukrainian units crashed against solid Russian defence and it is now Moscow's troops on the attack, particularly around Avdiivka.

As with Bakhmut earlier in 2023, this industrial city on the eastern front has become a new symbol for Ukrainian resistance.

Massively destroyed, it still has around 900 residents compared to 30,000 before the war. However, the Russian noose is slowly tightening and a Ukrainian retreat cannot be excluded.

Avdiivka's mayor Vitaly Barabash has called the situation 'critical' in recent days and said there is now house-to-house fighting in the city.

Russia has been sending 'waves' of men and the surrounding fields are 'littered with corpses', according to soldiers defending the city.

Stalled US Aid For Ukraine Underscores GOPs' Shift Away From Confronting Russia


Republicans have been softening their stance on Russia ever since Trump won the 2016 presidential election following Russian hacking of his Democratic opponents


BBC News 20 FEB 2024




No one town can capture the mood of this huge, struggling nation, after almost two years of war.





Ukraine war: A front-line town torn between determination and despair..A statue in the Park of Eternal Glory in Kyiv.






Artillery unit commander Titushko.


As the anniversary of Putin’s invasion nears, the fall of Avdiivka has given Russia its first gain in months. In Kyiv, cracks in morale are showing. What happens now?

Close to the frontline in Ukraine’s Donetsk region, a bumpy road passes through half-abandoned hamlets. It morphs into a muddy track, snakes through fields, and eventually leads to an army base hidden in a forest.

There, as a kettle boiled on a gas heater, a weary 39-year-old soldier, who wished to be known only by his callsign, Titushko, spoke about the problems of fighting the Russians amid a serious ammunition shortage, as the sound of fire from nearby positions echoed around the base.

In November, Titushko’s men, part of an artillery division in Ukraine’s First Tank Brigade, received a supply of about 300 shells every 10 days, but they now have a firing limit of just 10 a day. “Back then, we could keep them on their toes, fire all the time, aim every time we saw a target. Now we fire exclusively for defence,” he said.

The ammunition reserves at the base are thin, and partly made up of Iranian shells – part of a shipment seized in the Gulf apparently en route to Houthi rebels in Yemen. They are “extremely problematic and don’t work well,” another soldier at the base said.

Along the frontline, Ukraine is on the defensive, short of ammunition and soldiers. On Saturday, Ukraine’s military command announced it was withdrawing from Avdiivka, further east in Donetsk region, handing Russia its first major territorial gain since May last year. Ukrainian officials have described the loss as a direct consequence of the shortage of ammunition from the west.

The grim news, as the second anniversary of Russia’s full-scale invasion approaches, is another sign that the third year of the war could be the hardest yet for Ukraine. The mood is very different from that of a year ago, when amid the horror Ukrainians remained buoyed up by the extraordinary consolidation of national society, and looked forward to the swift liberation of all territories occupied by Russia.

In Kyiv, the cultural historian Natalia Kryvda attributed the remarkable coming-together in the first year of the war to Ukraine’s past as a nation that lacked the infrastructure of a state. “Because we have this long history of a stateless nation, we organised these horizontal links to start the defence. People took responsibility, they didn’t wait for orders,” she said.





Natalia Kryvda in the Saint Sophia Cathedral in Kyiv.


Those first months saw almost all segments of society unite, said Kryvda, creating a powerful new Ukrainian identity and a pride in being Ukrainian after years of denigration of the concept from Russia. “It was something very beautiful, but I’m worried that this unity is starting to crack now,” she said.

On Saturday, President Volodymyr Zelenskiy reminded the Munich security conference of just how much Ukrainian society had achieved over the past two years: “Ukrainians have been holding [out] for 724 days – 724 days, would you have believed 725 days ago that this was even possible?”

But with casualties mounting, army ranks and artillery supplies depleted and US financial aid stalled – and with the potentially devastating prospect of a Donald Trump presidency on the horizon – Ukrainians greet the second anniversary with trepidation about what the future might hold, as well as with increasingly visible divisions in society.


Stalled US Aid For Ukraine

At about 2 a.m. last Tuesday, Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin stood on the Senate floor and explained why he opposed sending more aid to help Ukraine fend off the invasion launched in 2022 by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“I don't like this reality," Johnson said. “Vladimir Putin is an evil war criminal.” But he quickly added: “Vladimir Putin will not lose this war.”

That argument — that the Russian president cannot be stopped so there's no point in using American taxpayer dollars against him — marks a new stage in the Republican Party's growing acceptance of Russian expansionism in the age of Donald Trump.

The GOP has been softening its stance on Russia ever since Trump won the 2016 election following Russian hacking of his Democratic opponents. There are several reasons for the shift. Among them, Putin is holding himself out as an international champion of conservative Christian values and the GOP is growing increasingly skeptical of overseas entanglements.

Then there's Trumps' personal embrace of the Russian leader.


Now the GOPs' ambivalence on Russia has stalled additional aid to Ukraine at a pivotal time in the war.


The Senate last week passed a foreign aid package that included $61 billion for Ukraine on a 70-29 vote, but Johnson was one of a majority of the Republicans to vote against the bill after their late-night stand to block it.





In the Republican-controlled House, SNIDEY Speaker Mike Johnson said his chamber will not be “rushed” to pass the measure, even as Ukraines' military warns of dire shortages of ammunition and artillery.

Putin Taunts The West by Taking a Flight in Russias' Tu-160M Strategic Nuclear Bomber as Kremlin Threatens Nuclear War

HUNGRY FOR MORE Fears Putin Days Away From Annexing ANOTHER Part of Europe in Fresh Hitler-Style Landgrab to Mark Ukraine Anniversary


Aside from 2,000 troops, Russia is feared to have thousands of paramilitaries waiting to strike inside Moldova

MailOnline 23 FEB 2024














VLADIMIR Putin could be on the brink of attempting another Hitler-style landgrab in Europe - the annexation of a Moldovan territory.

Fears are growing that the warmongering tyrant, 71, will attempt to strike at the West by announcing warped plans for the former Soviet republic that neighbours Ukraine next week.


Putin may announce an annexation of the pro-Moscow breakaway region of Transnistria following the second anniversary of his war against Ukraine

Russian so-called 'peacekeepers' take part in a parade to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Transnistria's illegal independence

There are reports that the pro-Russian breakaway region of Transnistria - which illegally declared its independence from Moldova in 1990 - is plotting to appeal to Putin to join Russia.

The landlocked strip along the Dniester River is wedged between both Moldova and Ukraine, which will pass its second anniversary in the grips of a grinding war with Russia this weekend.

Putin already has a so-called "peacekeeping" force of up to 2,000 troops in the region, which has a population of about 470,000 that Moscow says overwhelmingly wishes to be incorporated into Russia.

He is also believed to have thousands of paramilitaries on the ground, ready to take arms when the call comes.

Putin is set to make a major speech at the Russian Federal Assembly on February 29 - sparking fears he will use it to green light plans for an annexation.

The day before, a “congress” of local politicians has been called in Transnistria amid speculation they will issue a formal appeal to join Russia.

The last such congress led to such a demand.

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov has insisted Moscow will "not leave its citizens living in Transnistria in trouble”.







US Targets Russia With More Than 500 Sanctions




Putin Taunts The West by Taking a Flight in Russias' Tu-160M Strategic Nuclear Bomber



















The despots' stunt - which lasted around 40 minutes - appeared to be intended to enhance his macho ratings as he stands for re-election next month, and distract attention from the 'murder' of opposition leader Alexei Navalny in an Arctic jail.


But by flying in a type of warplane that has been used to wreak havoc in Ukraine with conventional weapons, he was sending a message that he intends to keep fighting in Ukraine, which he invaded almost two years ago.





And the huge Tu-160M - aka White Swan - is a key part of his nuclear strike force at a time when the Kremlin is bluntly warning the West over the risk of nuclear war.

Putin was seen taking off in Kazan a day after he visited a factory in the city where the Tupolev bombers are manufactured.

He clambered up a ladder at the factory to go inside the plane and spent ten minutes in the ****pit.

He then made the decision to fly himself in one of his bombers - his first flight since he took to the sky in a Tu-160 in 2005.

The giant swing-wing plane is a substantially modernised-version of a Soviet-era bomber that the USSR would have deployed in the event of a nuclear war with the West to deliver nuclear weapons at long distances.

The TU-160M is capable of carrying 12 cruise missiles or 12 short-range nuclear missiles and can fly 7,500 miles non-stop without re-fuelling.

The electioneering stunt came less than a week after a man who wanted to oust him as president - Navalny - was 'murdered' inside his bleak Arctic jail.

Even though the March election is expected to be rigged in Putin's favour, he is currently more visible on state TV than he has been for years.

A breathless report on Putin-controlled Russian state TV said: 'We just saw that the president [Vladimir Putin] again, for the second time in two days, climbed into the ****pit of a Tu-160 strategic bomber.'

On the tarmac, his spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Putin had 'made a decision to take a flight. There will be a flight [with Putin] now.'

Putin later emerged from the Tu-160M to hail the improved aircraft - the model in which he had flown - as suitable for the Russian air force.

'The technology is excellent. It can be accepted into the Armed Forces,' he said.

Putin BIGGEST Threat to Global Peace Since Hitler

Republican J.D. Vances' SPITEFUL Position on Ukraine is a DANGER to The WORLD

MailOnline 28 FEB 2024





Putin BIGGEST Threat to Global Peace...





Navalnys' body is finally handed over nine days after his death





Vladimir Putin could kill again on the streets of Britain, the defence secretary has warned, following the death of Russian dissident Alexei Navalny.






Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny died in prison earlier this month. His widow and supporters maintain he was killed by the Russian state


Mr Navalny, leader of the Russia of the Future opposition party, died on February 16 in a Russian prison in the Arctic Circle after being jailed on what his allies said were trumped up charges of extremism created by the Kremlin to silence him.

Now Grant Shapps has warned that Putin, who he says already has blood on his hands for the Salisbury poisonings targeting Sergei and Yulia Skripal, could strike again on UK soil, saying: 'We've seen what Putin is capable of.'

Russian authorities say he died of natural causes, but his widow Yulia Navalnaya believes he was poisoned with the deadly nerve agent Novichok - the same one used to target double agent Sergei Skripal in Salisbury in 2018.

The defence secretary compared the Russian premier - who has been been president or prime minister since 1999 - to Adolf Hitler, and warned that he presented the greatest threat to global peace since the Nazi dictator.

'Putin has Navalny's blood on his hands. Navalny should never have been in prison. His crime was standing up to an autocratic and now dictatorial Putin, who has a long history of bumping off his opponents.

'The world must not waver or bend to that kind of squalid leadership. We know what happens when you do — you end up with the mess of the last century.'

Mr Shapps added: 'Look what happened in Salisbury. We've seen what Putin is capable of. We are always tracking and trying to prevent those things. But do I think he has intent? You have seen that. So, yes.'

Bill Browder, a political activist and friend of Navalny's believed to be high on Putin's 'kill list', has claimed in recent days the Russian president will not hesitate to kill again on British soil after the dissident's death.

Navalny's body was handed over to his mother today after a nine day wait.

Mr Browder told the Mirror earlier this week that Putin had 'lost all restraint' after the 'game changer' of killing Navalny.

He said: 'The fact he would kill the most popular and prominent opposition politician in plain sight without fear of repercussion says that people who are opposing Putin in Russia and abroad are in much more serious risk of assassination.

'The killing of Alexei Navalny has shown Putin has lost all restraint and that he will embark on a major *international killing spree which will include against all his enemies in the UK.'

Meanwhile, a survivor of the Salisbury Novichok poisonings has warned Navalny's widow that she 'could be next'.





Charlie Rowley's partner Dawn Sturgess was killed by the deadly nerve agent in 2018 and he was left partly paralysed. Mother-of-three Dawn Sturgess and her partner Charlie Rowley fell ill at the flat in Amesbury, near Salisbury, after she handled a perfume bottle containing the poison




Charlie Rowley, a survivor of the Salisbury Novichok poisonings, has warned Alexei Navalny 's widow Yulia Navalnaya that she 'could be next'





Now he fears Yulia Navalnaya could be Putin's next victim and has warned her to 'watch her back'.


His intervention comes after Mrs Navalnaya released a video insisting Putin had used Novichok to murder her jailed husband after he 'could not be broken'.





Interview by Global Dispatch With Snidey Republican J.D. Vances' on His SPITEFUL Comments






Quote:

''Senator Vance. You declared your animus towards Ukraine’s security shortly after Russia’s full-scale invasion.

Differences of opinion are natural, but your position and tone are arguably ill-conceived. Let us ignore moral imperatives and consider purely self-interest.

You contend that by aiding Ukraine we degrade our ability to confront China. Most analysts, however, consider robust support of Ukraine, as the strongest check on China’s revanchist impulses.

Were Ukraine to fall, increased demands to secure Europe would limit our ability to defend Taiwan.
You dismiss as preposterous Putins’ capacity or intentions to expand his war, even as a growing number of military experts at home and in Europe, warn about the likelihood of further Russian aggression.

Strategic considerations demand that we prepare for and prevent catastrophic events of moderate probability. Mr. Putin’s predicates his conquest of Ukraine on termination of Western support, a termination that you advocate for.

There's been no blank check...





Ukrainians have shed their blood to degrade 90% of Russia’s pre-invasion forces.

You recently claimed,

“There are people who would cut Social Security, throw our grandparents into poverty. Why, so one of Zelensky’s ministers can buy a bigger yacht? Kiss my ass.


Really Senator?''

Putin planning to use private militias to 'weaponise' flow of migrants Russia is trying to destabilise Europe and influence its elections by moving migrants into the continent using private armies, it is claimed.


Vladimir Putin has attempted '15,000-man strong border police force' made up of former Libyan militias to 'weaponise' the flow of migrants from Africa, according to reports.


The Kremlin has already been accused of trying to create a refugee crisis by sending asylum seekers to its border with Finland, forcing the new NATO member to close its doors to migrants in a bid to stem the tide. There are fears that the country could renew its efforts this spring, with the EU's border police force saying Russia is using migration 'as a lever in a larger game of influence and pressure'.

Using private mercenaries, including the notorious Wagner group, it is believed Russia will fuel violence in places such as Burkina Faso, Mali, Sudan, Central African Republic and Libya to drive migrants towards Europe.







Last year Finland was forced to close its doors to asylum seekers at four crossings after arguing that Putin was deliberately sending them across the border in retaliation for it joining NATO.

Prime Minister Petteri Orpo (pictured) said it was 'clear that these people are helped and they are also being escorted or transported to the border by border guards', although Russia dismissed the claims.



Dr Sergey Sukhankin, a senior fellow at The Jamestown Foundation and an adviser at Gulf State Analytics in Washington, told the Telegraph: 'The various waves of illegal migrants from Africa might increase, because Russia is planning to create a new military facility in the Central African Republic.'



Central African Republic is a key part of some of the most-used migrant routes, with asylum seekers from places such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo moving through on their way north to Sudan and Libya.

Senior Russian Officer Warns Ukraine Conflict Could Escalate Into Full-Scale WAR in Europe

Russia Strikes Odesa During Zelensky and Greek PM Visit


Putins' missiles come within yards of killing NATO leader and sparking WW3: Deadly strike hits Odesa as Zelensky meets Greek PM who reveals 'explosions were near us... we did not have time to shelter'


MailOnline 7 MAR 2024





The port city was attacked ahead of Zelenskys' meeting with Kyriakos Mitsotakis. A source said it was 'the closest call ever', coming within yards of the mission



MOSCOW, March 7 (Reuters) - A senior Russian military officer has warned that the conflict in Ukraine could escalate into a full-scale war in Europe and said the probability of Moscow's forces becoming involved in a new conflict is increasing "significantly."

Colonel-General Vladimir Zarudnitsky, head of the Russian army's Military Academy of the General Staff, made the comments in an article for "Military Thought", a defence ministry publication, the state RIA news agency reported on Thursday.

"The possibility of an escalation of the conflict in Ukraine - from the expansion of participants in 'proxy forces' used for military confrontation with Russia to a large-scale war in Europe - cannot be ruled out," RIA cited him a saying.

"The main source of military threats to our state is the anti-Russian policy of the United States and its allies, who are conducting a new type of hybrid warfare in order to weaken Russia in every possible way, limit its sovereignty and destroy its territorial integrity," he was quoted as saying.

"The likelihood of our state being purposefully drawn into new military conflicts is significantly increasing."

The war in Ukraine has triggered the deepest crisis in Russia's relations with the West since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis and President Vladimir Putin has warned that the West risks provoking a nuclear war if it sends troops to fight in Ukraine.

Putin has cast his decision to send tens of thousands of troops into Ukraine in February 2022 as a special military operation designed to secure Russia's own security against an increasingly hostile U.S.-backed Ukrainian leadership. Kyiv says it is defending itself against an imperial-style war of conquest designed to erase its national identity.

Zarudnitsky's comments come at a time when the West is scrambling to help Ukraine with more arms and financing after Kyiv's failed counteroffensive last summer and after Russian forces regained the initiative on the battlefield.

Zarudnitsky advocated a number of changes in the way Russia organises its military and security, RIA added, including placing greater emphasis on replying on what he called friendly countries to ensure Russia's own security and consolidating the whole of Russian society around its defence needs.


Kiryakos Mitsotakis said;
"At the very end, we heard sirens and explosions, which were very close to us. We didn't have time to go to a protected place, it's a very striking experience," the Greek Prime Minister added. We understand that this war concerns everyone.

There are no people who are not involved in this war. This war pleases no one...

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk has declared Europe is now in a 'pre-war era' and warned a Ukrainian defeat to Russia would only embolden Vladimir Putin.








'I know it sounds devastating, especially to people of the younger generation, but we have to mentally get used to the arrival of a new era. The pre-war era,' he said in a speech to foreign journalists.



'I don't want to scare anyone, but war is no longer a concept from the past. It's real and it started over two years ago.

'We are living in the most critical moment since the end of the Second World War... literally any scenario is possible,' he concluded.

His warning came as Russia launched another large-scale attack on Ukraine's energy infrastructure with a mass barrage of drones and airstrikes hitting regions across the country overnight, Kyiv officials claimed.

The bombardment also prompted Poland to scramble its own warplanes to protect its airspace from any wayward drones, missiles or bombers.

Ukraines’ Air Defence Missiles Are Running Out, Zelenskiy Warns and AGAIN Pleads US For HELP, Which Continues to be BLOCKED by Republicans...


-US REP MOUTHY Marjorie Says 'Kiss My ASS'

Ukrainian troops told the Daily Telegraph that they have been subjected to regular attacks from small drones dropping teargas and other chemicals.

The use of such substances, which is known as CS, is banned during wartime under the Chemical Weapons Convention.

The Guardian 8 APR 2024








Ukraine soldiers describe ‘almost daily’ illegal gas attacks as invaders seek to dislodge them from embedded positions. Russia has been accused of systematically using illegal chemical gas attacks against Ukrainian soldiers.



Ukrainian troops told the Daily Telegraph that they have been subjected to regular attacks from small drones dropping teargas and other chemicals.

The use of such substances, which is known as CS, is banned during wartime under the Chemical Weapons Convention.

Slava, a senior lieutenant whose unit is deployed near Lyman, in Donetsk oblast, said some Ukrainian units in his area were coming under “almost daily” gas attacks.

A CS gas grenade was provided to the Telegraph for verification by Rebekah Maciorowski, an American combat medic and a qualified nurse serving in the Ukrainian army.

Maciorowski has been routinely called to provide medical aid to Ukrainian soldiers in the three brigades she works with in Donetsk oblast after chemical weapon attacks, which she described as “systematic”.

The grenade was originally retrieved by soldiers in the 53rd Mechanised Brigade, one of the units with which she works.

Maciorowski said: “My guys retrieved it while under fire because nobody believed they were being attacked with chemical weapons.”

Ihor, the commander of a Ukrainian reconnaissance team deployed near the frontline city of Chasiv Yar, in Donetsk oblast, told the Telegraph: “Nearly every position in our area of the front was getting one or two gas grenades dropped on them a day.”

He said that because of how embedded many Ukrainian troops are now, it was difficult for the Russians to attack with conventional artillery or drones firing missiles, adding: “The only way for them to successfully attack us was with gas.”

In 2022, Chris Philp, UK technology minister at the time, warned that Russia can expect a “dramatic increased response” from the west if Vladimir Putin uses chemical weapons in Ukraine.

Philp also accused the Kremlin of sharing disinformation online to create a false narrative that Ukraine is preparing to use chemical weapons, so that Russia can launch its own chemical attack.





Putin was accused of using chemical weapons in a drone assault on the port of Mariupol in the early stages of its invasion in February 2022.

British Foreign Secretary LORD David Cameron Meets TRUMP to UNBLOCK Ukraine Support

Lord Cameron meets Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago





David Cameron has held talks with Donald Trump in Florida amid a push to shore up support for Ukraine and advance a new package of aid that is held up in Congress.



In a statement on Monday, a Foreign Office spokesperson said: “Ahead of his visit to Washington, the foreign secretary will meet former President Trump in Florida today. It is standard practice for ministers to meet with opposition candidates as part of their routine international engagement.”

Cameron’s discussion with the presumptive Republican presidential candidate, believed to be the first such meeting by a senior UK minister with Trump since he left office, covered Ukraine, the war in Gaza and the future of Nato, according to a report in the Telegraph.

Trump has repeatedly voiced misgivings about aid to Ukraine and questioned America’s commitment to Nato, the international alliance which the US has committed to defending when necessary.






On his visit to Washington, Cameron will warn that success for Kyiv in defeating Russia is “vital for American and European security” as he urges lawmakers across to approve “urgent” further assistance for the country.






He will hold talks with his US counterpart, Antony Blinken, the national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, and the Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, and is hoping to meet the House speaker, Mike Johnson, whose colleagues are preventing the vote on an extra $60bn (£47bn) of Ukraine aid.



Lord Cameron will push for Ukraine to be given the resources needed to “go on the offensive” in 2025 and will urge congressional leaders to “change the narrative” on support for Kyiv, the Foreign Office said.

He was expected to tell Johnson to stop his colleagues from continuing to block the support amid opposition from hardliners aligned with Trump.

It’s the latest of several interventions made by Cameron over additional funding for Ukraine. Earlier this year, he warned Congress not to show “the weakness displayed against Hitler” in the 1930s.

His previous comments drew the ire and foul mouth of rightwing congresswoman and staunch Trump ally Marjorie Taylor Greene, who told him to “kiss my ass” and “worry about his own country”.

Kids Stop Squabbling -US House Passes Crucial Aid Worth $61BIL For Ukraine

US House approves $61BIL in military aid for Ukraine after months of stalling


Ukrainian President Thanks America After Speaker Mike Johnson Secures Bipartisan Support For Funding Ukraine After British Foreign Secretary Lord David Camerons' Visit to US to UNBLOCK Ukraine Support


The Guardian 21 APR 2024






After months of stalling, the US House of Representatives finally approved more than $61bn worth of military assistance to help Ukraine in its desperate defense against Russia, as well as billions for other allies including Israel and Taiwan.



In a bipartisan vote, 210 Democrats and 101 Republicans joined to support Ukraine, with 112 Republicans – a majority of the GOP members – voting against. It came after the Republican speaker, Mike Johnson, forced a series of bills onto the floor in the face of fierce resistance within his own Republican party, many of whom oppose spending more on Ukraine’s defense.

The Senate is set to begin considering the House-passed bill on Tuesday, with some preliminary votes that afternoon. Final passage was expected sometime next week, which would clear the way for Biden to sign it into law.

Voting began hours ahead of schedule in an extraordinary Saturday session that delayed the House’s planned recess. The House erupted into applause when the Ukraine bill passed, with the chair, Marc Molinaro of New York, admonishing members not to wave Ukrainian flags.

In a powerful effort to sum up the stakes before the vote, the former Democratic speaker, Nancy Pelosi, made a stridently graphic appeal: “I hope our colleagues will choose democracy and decency rather than autocracy and evil because I fear if you choose the Putin route, you will have blood on your hands, blood of the children, blood of their mothers raped in front of their parents, raped in front of their children,” she said.

Volodymyr Zelenskiy, Ukraine’s president, recently warned that his country “will lose the war” without US assistance, as its military has struggled with ammunition and air defense shortages and Russia has pressed a growing advantage in firepower as Congress prevaricated.

Immediately after the bill passed, ZelenskIy released a statement expressing his gratitude to both parties “and personally Speaker Mike Johnson for the decision that keeps history on the right track”.






“Democracy and freedom will always have global significance and will never fail as long as America helps to protect it,” he said. “The vital US aid bill passed today by the House will keep the war from expanding, save thousands and thousands of lives, and help both of our nations to become stronger. Just peace and security can only be attained through strength.

We hope that bills will be supported in the Senate and sent to President Biden’s desk. Thank you, America!”
