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?''

Vladmir Putin Trying to DESTABILISE Europe by Flooding The West With Migrants

Putin Plans to Flood West With Migrants .. Russia Using Militias in Africa to Weaponise Flows of People in Attempts to Influence Elections


Vladimir Putin Threatens to NUKE The West and Accuses NATO of Preparing to Strike Russia

MailOnline 1 MAR 2024

















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...

A screen grab captured from a video shows crews of the Uragan MLRS of Russia's Vostok group of troops launch missile attacks towards Ukrainian positions in Donetsk on March 29, 2024






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 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

Foreign Secretary hosted by former president at his resort before meeting Republicans in Washington


In Washington the British Foreign Secretary will urge congressional leaders to advance aid for Kyiv in its war against Russia


The Guardian 9 APR 2024







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”.

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!”

Putin Pardons Murderers, Cannibals To Fight In Ukraine Amid Troop Shortage

Putins’ Army: Murderers, Maniacs and Cannibals Released From Prison For War

MailOnline 3 MAY 2024









Convicted murderers Dmitry Malyshev and Alexander Maslennikov are now fighting on the frontline in Ukraine

Convicted multiple murderer and self-confessed cannibal Dmitry Malyshev has been released from prison by Putin to fight in Ukraine on the frontline and is joined by another notorious criminal.


Two sick criminals - a cannibal and a rapist 'meat grinder' killer - were released from prison early by Putin to fight in Ukraine and have now joined forces on the frontline.


One of the two offenders, murderer Dmitry Malyshev, 36, admitted to killing three men, ripping out the heart of one of them and frying it with herbs and seasoning before eating it with a side of vegetables.

The second is rapist-killer Alexander Maslennikov, 38, who was jailed for using an axe and a meat grinder to dismember the bodies of two women he killed in his home, then feeding the remains of his victims to dogs.

Both have had their sentences cut short and were released from prison, amongst hundreds of thousands of other Russian criminals, in order to join the armed forces and fight in Unit Storm V in Ukraine as part of Putin's illegal invasion of the country.


The Russian president calls his fighters the "new elite" of Russia although many of them have committed heinous crimes. These two convicted killers were pictured grinning together in military uniform and have spoken out about their partnership, according to V1 Media.

Malyshev, who had been jailed for 25 years for his role in criminal gang murders, banditry, theft, illegal weapons trafficking, robbery and cannibalism, announced that he and Maslennikov intend "to preserve the traditional values of Russia" by fighting for the country. He continued:

"Alexander and I were serving sentences together and we both signed contracts with the Ministry of Defence in October 2023. We serve in Storm V."

Released 17 years early, at the time of his arrest he confessed in great detail his brutal crimes, saying: "I caught up with a man there, and killed him. I hit him several times on the head with a nail gun and cut out his heart.”

He then left to buy supplies including an axe, file, spade, and plastic bin bags. He dismembered the bodies, one of them believed to have been cut into 20 pieces, and took them to a forest area and buried them. Forensic investigators later found DNA evidence of both of the women on a meat grinder in his kitchen and local reports cited he had fed some of the human flesh to dogs.


Malyshev is currently in a military hospital with a broken jaw and shrapnel wounds.

--12 ways Putin spies have tried to kill Zelensky as Ukraine leader survives new assassination attempt

Every TV in Occupied Crimea Broadcasts Footage of Russian TORTURE Chamber After Ukrainian Hack

MailOnline 9 MAY 2024





Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky has already foiled "more than a dozen" assassination attempts after it emerged that he has narrowly escaped death again.


Ukrainian counterintelligence investigators said they dismantled a Russian plot to assassinate the president, along with other senior political and military figures.


Two State Guard of Ukraine colonels - whose role is to protect high-ranking officials - have been taken into custody for allegedly enacting a plan drawn up by the Russian FSB. The two officers are said to have been recruited before the war broke out in February 2022.

But it's not the first time Zelensky has been targeted. Weeks after the February invasion, reports emerged that alleged Vladimir Putin had told Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov to hunt down and liquidate Ukraine's leaders.




Ukrainian spymaster Major General Kyrylo Budanov




In March, commandos from Chechnya were deployed to assassinate Zelensky. But they didn't get far and were quickly taken out by Ukraine's intelligence service. In that same month, a Russian private military company called Redut was given a similar task - to infiltrate and eliminate the political leadership.

The operation - in which more than 1,000 fighters reported for duty - was unsuccessful as up to 90 per cent of the soldiers were slaughtered when they tried to seize institutions in Kyiv.





Ukrainian secret service operatives swoop on the "Russian FSB" agents



A year later in August 2023, it emerged that another assassination had been prevented when a woman was arrested on suspicion of gathering information about Zelensky's holiday to Mykolaiv. In April 2024, Pawel K - a Polish national - was also seized. He was accused of trying to organised the president's assassination at a Polish airport.

It's currently unclear exactly how many attempts have been made against the president's life, but his adviser Mykhailo Podolyak said he believes it's "more than a dozen".

Regarding the attempt that emerged today, State Security Service head, Vasyl Maliuk, was quoted as saying the plot foresaw an attack before Russian President Vladimir Putin's inauguration for a fifth term on Tuesday. Maliuk said that he personally oversaw the top-secret operation to track the plot.



Ukrainian claims of Russian efforts to kill Zelensky aren't new. Zelensky said in 2022 there has been at least 10 attempts to assassinate him, and now the war with Russia has stretched into its third year.


Zelensky's movements are kept secret for security reasons, and his visits around the country are publicly announced only after he has left. News of events he holds in Kyiv is usually embargoed until they are over.

Zelensky proved to be a valuable asset for his country as the war against Ukraine's bigger neighbor grinds on, and as Kyiv's depleted forces wait for more troops and weapons. He has urged his people to keep fighting and instilled a belief that Ukraine can prevail.

The Ukrainian statement said the Russian intelligence agents targeting Zelensky sought out members of the Ukrainian military close to the president's security detail who could take the head of state hostage and later kill him. The operation was run from Moscow, it said, providing the names of three alleged Russian spies behind the conspiracy.

The broader plan was to identify the location of senior Ukrainian officials and target them with a rocket attack, followed by drones and missiles. The two Ukrainian colonels were arrested on suspicion of treason, which carries a life sentence, the statement said.

Movies Putins' TORTURE PRISONS; If You Are a Musician They Beat You More

‘If You Say You Are a Musician, They Beat You More’:

The Ukrainian sax player who survived Putins' torture prisons


The Guardian 12 MAY 2024







Yuri Merkotan lost nearly 60kg during his capture.




The Ukrainian sax player who survived Putins' torture prisons.. Yuriy Merkotan played in a military band and, after being caught up in the Mariupol siege, spent nearly two years in various jails


When Yuriy Merkotan enlisted in Ukraine’s national guard in 2020, it was not because he wanted to fight. A saxophonist living in the southern port city of Mariupol, there were few opportunities to play music professionally. So when a spot became free in a 16-person band attached to a national guard brigade, he jumped at the chance.


But when Russian forces put Mariupol under siege in February 2022, the band members were called to duty. They ended up inside Azovstal, the sprawling factory that became the last bastion of Ukrainian defence as the Russian occupation proceeded to its grim conclusion.

When Ukrainian forces in Azovstal laid down their arms in May 2022, Merkotan and other musicians were among more than 2,000 Ukrainians taken into Russian captivity.

Over 20 months in Russian prisons, he lost nearly 60kg of body weight, and was subjected to a gruesome routine of physical and psychological torment.

He was freed in January this year, but the story of his time in Russian captivity shines a light on the grim conditions faced by thousands of Ukrainians taken prisoner by Russia over the past two years.

It also serves as a reminder that 23 musicians, from three Mariupol ensembles, remain in Russian captivity, as the two-year anniversary of the Russian takeover of the city approaches next week.

“I tried to explain that I was a musician but it didn’t work. You say you are a musician and it irritates them so much they beat you more, and accuse you of lying,” said Merkotan, during an interview in a Kyiv cafe.

Before Vladimir Putin’s decision to launch the full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Merkotan’s 16-person national guard orchestra played ceremonial marches at military parades, and toured Donetsk region giving concerts of popular music covers at public events or old-people’s homes.

After the start of hostilities, the musicians were put in charge of bringing food and supplies to other parts of the national guard stationed in the huge territory of Azovstal. It was a dangerous job that involved scarpering above ground with heavy barrels and boxes, moving quickly enough to evade the incoming fire that inevitably followed as soon as they made an appearance. The band’s drummer was killed in an airstrike inside Azovstal; the trombonist, who is also Merkotan’s brother-in-law, was wounded.

Eventually, 10 musicians from the band ended up in Russian captivity. For the first months, they were mostly held in crowded barracks in the town of Olenivka, in Russian-occupied eastern Ukraine. Drinking water came straight from the river and sometimes had a greenish tinge; food was served *piping hot and with a window of a couple of minutes to wolf it down, forcing hungry prisoners either to burn their mouths or abstain.

One hot day in the summer of 2022, Merkotan’s name was called and he was put on a bus with other prisoners. “We didn’t know where they were taking us. Three guys came in with weapons and were aggressive, shouting at us that we are scum and that if we make any move they’ll kill us,” he said. It turned out that Merkotan was among 60 men picked for the unenviable task of exhuming bodies of those who died in shelling and airstrikes in Mariupol, and had been buried in makeshift graves. For a month, he was driven daily to the occupied city and forced to dig at gunpoint.

“My team dug up 200 bodies at least. It was August, hot, and the smell was disgusting. Surprisingly, nobody vomited. I guess the stress was too much, but we all got terrible diarrhoea. On the fourth day, I stopped eating because as soon as you ate you had to run to the toilet,” he recalled.




At the beginning of October, he was blindfolded and put in a prison truck. After hours of driving along bumpy roads, he was pushed on to a plane, the first time in his life he had taken a flight. Although he remained blindfolded and handcuffed, he assumed the movement meant he would be exchanged.

Instead, after landing and another truck ride, the barking of dogs and coarse Russian shouting informed him he was back at a prison. It was only later, from ink stamps on the bed sheets, that he found out the location: Borisoglebsk, in Russia’s Voronezh region.

The humiliations of Russian prison made Merkotan miss the conditions back in occupied Ukraine. At Borisoglebsk, prisoners were forbidden from sitting or lying between 6am and 10pm, when they were forced to stand up in their cells. Many developed serious leg injuries. The speaker system played the same few recorded radio programmes about Ukrainian Nazis over and over again.

Twice a day, the inmates had to assemble in the corridor, face against the wall and legs apart as wide as they could manage. They were then assaulted by guards who beat them with rubber truncheons, and sometimes used handheld electric shockers. After some months, Merkotan was moved to another prison in the same town, where the conditions were slightly better and the men were allowed to sit. Then, in January this year, he was told he would be exchanged.

The blindfold went on again and he was put in a bus that drove in what he assumed was the direction of the border with Ukraine. But after some hours, the bus stopped, then turned around. When they stopped later, one of the Russian guards began punching him hard, breaking his jaw in two places. “That’s for what your guys did,” the man shouted.

The swap, he later found out, had been cancelled after a transport plane that Russia claimed was carrying dozens of prisoners meant to be exchanged was shot down by a Ukrainian missile. Much about the incident remains murky and disputed. A week later, he was taken from the prison again and this time the exchange went ahead, with Merkotan one of about 200 Ukrainians heading home.





Merkotan has been reunited with his wife, Anastasia, a music teacher he met when the pair were both music students in the city of Donetsk a decade ago.





While he was in captivity, Anastasia had started a project named “Bring the Band Home”, dedicated to returning the musicians held in Russian captivity, from Yuriy’s orchestra and two other military-linked ensembles that had been in Mariupol. She said there is little or no information about many of the 23 musicians remaining in Russian captivity.

Russia Recruiting Far-Right Extremists to Launch Attacks in The West
--Kremlin intelligence service finds agents to target infrastructure facilities, it is claimed







Russians carrying Wagner flags


Intelligence sources have said that terrorists recruited by Russian GRU agents have been responsible for a series of attacks in Western Europe and the US in the last six months.

The Telegraph understands that extremists are being recruited by undercover officers of the GRU – the Russian military intelligence service – and members of the mercenary group Wagner.

It comes after the expulsion of Col Elovik Maxim, the Russian defence attache to the UK, who is believed to be a GRU operative.

An intelligence source said: “The GRU are cultivating a network of Right-wing terrorists to deploy against Nato targets.

“These attacks are already happening and have been going on for a while in various Nato countries and the UK is definitely on the target list.

“Attacks may have taken place in the US and have occurred in Germany.

“Intelligence agencies are now actively warning their governments that the threat is very real.

“Right-wing extremists are being targeted because they are the group in the political spectrum who are pro-Russia, pro-Putin and very violent.

“There is also a lot of covert contact between Right-wing groups in different countries.”

The disclosures follow comments last month by Thomas Haldenwang, the head of German domestic intelligence, who told a security conference: “We assess the risk of [Russian] state-controlled acts of sabotage to be significantly increased.”




He added that the attacks would come with “a high potential for damage”.

Inside Polands' incredible new £2bn mega-project to make it impossible for Putin to invade





Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk has announced that his country will spend almost £2billion on a 250-mile defensive structure to prevent a Russian invasion of Nato's eastern flank.



Anti-tank ditches, bunkers and minefields planned for 434 miles of Belarus and Russia border by 2028

The eastern European country has armed itself to the teeth in recent years and now it's building a 250-mile "impassable" defensive structure to keep out Russia.

The East Shield programme will see a giant metal barrier, as well as other fortifications, be installed along the border separating Poland and the Russian exclave Kaliningrad - a distance of around 145 miles. The Shield will also be built along Poland's border with Belarus - a key Russian ally - which is approximately 260 miles.

The project will link up with defensive structures being built in the Baltic states, which should allay fears that Putin may try and exploit the 40-mile Suwałki Gap - the border between Poland and Lithuania.

Announcing the project on 80th anniversary of the Allies' victory over the Nazis in the Battle for Rome in World War Two, 67-year-old Tusk said: "We are launching a major project to build a secure border, including fortifications and environmental adjustments, making it impassable for potential enemies".

The former President of the European Council added: "We will build the East Shield and thereby fulfill the task assigned by the NATO, tasks of deterrence and defence. These tasks are extremely important, as the largest country on NATO’s eastern flank."

This is just the latest strategic military decision Poland has made since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, designed to ramp up their capacity to defend themselves.





The Eastern European country now spends more on defence in GDP terms than any other country in NATO, including the United States.


In 2022, the Polish government announced that military investment would go from 2.4 percent to 3.9 percent.

Yes, it’s about safeguarding European security – a rallying cry heard in countless statements from Western officials, often accompanied by assurances of limited air defence and ammunition


– But as Ukraine continues to lose ground, towns, and lives, the West’s response is tepid, with its only firm stance drawn around Nato borders, where geopolitical interests overshadow humanitarian concerns.

But what if Putin dares to cross these lines, dismissing Western threats as mere bluster? What if Ukraine falls, emboldening Putin to pursue further expansion into the other former Soviet Union states that, in his view, belong in the Russian empire? Will Nato truly honour its pledge to collective security, or is that promise nothing but hollow rhetoric?

The fact is, Nato’s resilience is more fragile than we think. And a victory for Putin could see the world’s most successful alliance begin to crumble.

The strength of Nato lies not only in its military prowess but in its unwavering commitment to collective defence, enshrined in Article 5. Yet Article 5 merely compels members to contemplate a response.


“The Parties agree that … if such an armed attack occurs, each of them … will take action as it deems necessary…” – that’s all that Article 5 says. That action could mean anything from sending a warship to patrol an incursion, to merely expressing deep concern.

Movies Biden Bows to GLOBAL Pressure -Lets Ukraine Use US Weapons to Strike Russia

Biden Bows to GLOBAL Pressure and Allows Ukraine to Use US Weapons to Strike Russia

Joe Biden has bowed to international pressure to allow Ukraine to use American weapons to strike Russian territory after the head of Nato said “the time has come” to overturn the ban.


BBC 31 MAY 2024






The US has given Kyiv permission to use its weapons to strike Russia for the limited purpose of defending Kharkiv, according to two US officials.





Jens Stoltenberg, the alliance's secretary general, said: 'The time has come to consider some of these restrictions, to enable the Ukrainians to really defend themselves'




The unnamed officials insisted the US policy preventing Ukraine from using American-provided long-range missiles to strike inside Russia has not changed.

It comes after Jens Stoltenberg, Nato’s alliance’s secretary-general, said the “time has come” for restrictions to be lifted, after France and Germany earlier this week signalled an easing of their own rules.

Antony Blinken, the US secretary of state, reassured Czech leaders that progress was being made on the issue in meetings on Thursday at the beginning of a two-day summit of Nato ministers in Prague.

It is rare for any Nato chief to directly put pressure on a US president and Mr Stoltenberg’s intervention was described as “surprising” by diplomatic sources.

“Allies are delivering many different types of military support to Ukraine and some of them have imposed some restrictions on the use of these weapons… these are national decisions,” Mr Stoltenberg said in a speech ahead of the gathering.

“But I think that in light of how this war has evolved the time has come to consider some of these restrictions, to enable the Ukrainians to really defend themselves.”


In recent weeks Kyiv has repeatedly urged its Western allies to allow the use of their long-range weapons to strike military targets on Russian soil.

“It was surprising,” a diplomat said of Mr Stoltenberg’s campaign to support Ukraine’s push.

“As important as it was, it is not for the secretary general to be giving advice to individual allies on bilateral issues.”

A growing number of European countries, including Britain and France, have granted Kyiv permission to use Western missiles against Russian military targets before they cross the border.

Moscow is massing troops on the border with Ukraine ahead of a long-awaited summer offensive.

But Washington, Ukraine’s key military backer, had until now refused to approve the use of weapons like the long-range Atacms missiles to strike troops or logistics hubs inside Russia.

President Biden was said to be reluctant amid fears the move could drag Nato into a wider conflict with Russia, a nuclear superpower.

But on Thursday, he was reported for the first time to be “edging towards” a U-turn on the issue as Mr Blinken said the US regularly “adjusts” its position in response to events on the battlefield.

“I’m confident we’ll continue to do that,” he said at a news conference in Chisinau.

The Kremlin on Thursday said Nato members calling for relaxed rules on Western weapons were “provoking” Kyiv into prolonging the war.

Dmitry Suslov, an influential think-tank analyst linked to Vladimir Putin’s regime, said Russia should consider a “demonstrative” nuclear explosion to warn the West against its missiles being used in cross-border strikes.

Despite the threats, there was a mounting expectation amongst European allies in Prague that Washington would soon overturn its ban.

“They [America] are looking into this. From what I understand there will be progress,” a senior Czech official familiar with the discussions told The Telegraph.

The source credited President Emmanuel Macron’s decision this week to allow French weapons to be used to “neutralise” Russian targets over the border

Jan Lipavsky, the Czech foreign minister, told reporters: “I feel that we are moving on that in the international sphere.”

Mr Blinken was said to have changed his mind on the use of American weapons after he was warned by President Volodymyr Zelensky that Ukraine could lose Kharkiv, its second-largest city, on a “sobering visit” to Kyiv this month, The New York Times reported.

An anonymous US official told the newspaper that it was “inevitable” that Mr Biden would reverse its ban.


The White House is also understood to be cautious about allowing Ukraine’s position on the battlefield to deteriorate too much ahead of Nato’s 75th anniversary summit in Washington in July.

Sources said Russian advances would be used by Donald Trump, who is expected to be officially named the Republican presidential candidate days after the gathering, to further undermine Mr Biden’s flagship policy of defending Ukraine.

Important Putins' Right-Hand Man Fires Terrifying NUKE Warning to NATO

Fatal Mistake': Putins' Right-Hand Man Fires Terrifying NUKE Warning to NATO

Russia is threatening to strike NATO countries if Ukraine uses Western weapons to hit Russian territories.

MailOnline 2 JUN 2024




Vladimir Putins right hand man has issued a chilling nuclear warning to NATO over one 'fatal mistake'. Russia launched massive shelling on the Izyum







Dmitry Medvedev, deputy chairman of the Security Council of Russia, emphasised the severe consequences of Western intervention in the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.


Medvedev's statements come amidst heightened tensions and increased Western support for Ukraine.


"All Western military equipment and specialists fighting against Russia will be destroyed not only in Ukraine, but also in other countries if they are launched from there onto Russian territory," Medvedev declared. This bold assertion highlights Russia's readiness to target any Western involvement perceived as a direct threat to its territory.

Medvedev further cautioned that individual assistance from NATO countries, whether in the form of missile control or troop deployment, would significantly escalate the situation. "Individual assistance from NATO countries against Russia, be it controlling missiles or sending troops, would be a serious escalation," he noted, "followed by a response of such force that the alliance itself would not be able to resist being drawn into the conflict."

"Individual assistance from NATO countries against Russia, be it controlling missiles or sending troops, would be a serious escalation," he noted, "followed by a response of such force that the alliance itself would not be able to resist being drawn into the conflict."

In a chilling statement, Medvedev stressed the potential for a miscalculation by the West regarding Russia's restraint in using tactical nuclear weapons. "This would be a fatal mistake," he warned, suggesting that such a misjudgment could have catastrophic consequences.

This warning coincides with a recent announcement from the German government regarding Ukraine's use of weapons provided by Western allies. Germany has affirmed Ukraine's right to use these weapons against attacks originating from Russian positions just over the border.

The German government stated, "Together with its closest allies and in consultation with Ukraine, it is continually adapting its support to developments in the war."


The statement emphasised Ukraine's right to self-defence under international law, particularly against Russian attacks on the Kharkiv region.


"For this, it can also use the weapons delivered for that purpose in accordance with its international legal commitments, including the ones delivered by us,” the German government added.

Similarly, US President Joe Biden has given Kyiv the go-ahead to use American-supplied weapons against Russian military assets targeting Kharkiv.

US Himars Strike Destroys Air Defences Inside Russia as Kremlin Warns of Fatal Consequences

Russia Using 'Mad Max' War Bikes in Attempt to Dodge Ukraines' Killer Drones


Images of the Russian "Mad Max" vehicles have emerged with sidecars, bizarre metal cages, and camouflage netting. However, these vehicles are vulnerable to Ukrainian artillery, missiles and drones


BBC 5 JUN 2024





Ukrainian troops have used US-supplied Himars missiles to destroy an advanced air defence system inside Russia, as the Kremlin warned Washington it could suffer “fatal consequences” for backing the cross-border attacks.



Several missiles are understood to have hit an air defence installation in the Russian town of Belgorod that was equipped with S-300/400 surface-to-air missiles.

Photos of the aftermath of the attack, which is believed to have happened on Sunday, show vehicles on fire and billowing out smoke.

On Monday, Sergei Ryabkov, Moscow’s deputy foreign minister, said that the US would face “fatal consequences” if it allowed Ukraine to use American weapons for attacks inside Russia.

The US has so far allowed Kyiv to hit targets within Russia only if they pose an immediate threat to Ukrainian forces.

It’s not clear if the strike on Belgorod breaches the limits the US has imposed on the weapons, but Volodymyr Zelensky, the Ukrainian president, has requested permission to use US munitions for long range strikes.

On Monday, those wishes were echoed by Dmytro Kuleba, the foreign minister, who told his Estonian counterpart Ukraine was pressing its allies “on expanding the scope of its application”.

“It is not 100 per cent, you know, clearance. It comes with some rules that need to be followed,” he said at a press conference.
‘Don’t underestimate the rebuff’

Ukraine has argued that in not allowing it to fire long range weapons into Russia, its allies are hamstringing its defence.

Mr Zelensky said: “So they have these weapons there and they do not remove them because they know that Ukraine cannot target them with Western weaponry even if they fire against us.”

Ukraine’s supporters fear striking inside Russia will drag them closer to direct conflict with Moscow.

Mr Ryabkov warned the US to take a more serious approach to conflict, risking miscalculation if they don’t.

“I urge these figures [in the US] ... to spend some of their time, which they apparently spend on some kind of video games, judging by the lightness of their approach, on studying what was said in detail by Putin,” Mr Ryabkov said.

“I would like to warn American leaders against miscalculations that could have fatal consequences. For unknown reasons, they underestimate the seriousness of the rebuff they may receive,” he added.

Vladimir Putin said the West would be directly involved in any use of its weapons by Ukraine to strike deep inside Russia, because such attacks would require its satellite, intelligence and military help.

Attacks over the border have stepped up dramatically in recent weeks after Russian forces launched a renewed ground offensive into Ukraine’s north-east.

Ukraine has responded with attacks of its own. Among the most recent was one with drones that destroyed a convoy of 15 Russian trucks, according to footage recorded by the brigades involved in the attack.

On Monday, Mr Kuleba said Russia was trying to dissuade countries from participating in a Ukraine peace summit to be held in Switzerland later this month.

He said Russia was aiming to discredit the summit publicly, convince countries not to participate and urge those intent on going to send low-level representatives.





Russia Using 'Mad Max' War Bikes..




Russia has begun equipping more assault groups with inexpensive civilian vehicles



Russia is using "Mad Max" bikes to dodge Ukrainian drones after losing more than 15,000 armoured vehicles - as their war supplies continue to dwindle.






The armed vehicles have been mocked online


According to the Ukrainian Centre for Defence, the Russians are “employing light vehicles such as motorcycles and ATVs to quickly traverse the distance from their attack launch positions to the front lines of the Ukrainian defence forces.” However, these vehicles are extremely vulnerable to Ukrainian artillery, missiles, and drones.

Images have emerged of the bikes with sidecars and bizarre metal cages covering them - along with some camouflage netting. They've been compared to the vehicles used in the post-apocalyptic Mad Max film franchise but the 70-horsepower ATV or a 50-horsepower motorbike is unable to withstand much armour without losing its speed.

They were first deployed in Spring but they were “beaten in the teeth,” according to the Ukrainian 79th Air Assault Brigade. “The armoured motorcycle was one of the many concepts that died with the interwar era,” Tanks Encyclopedia told Forbes.

“Their increased weight and relatively high cost, coupled with limited combat potential, meant that their place in armoured fighting vehicle history resulted in little more than a footnote.”


It comes as Ukraine imposed emergency power shutdowns in most of the country on Sunday, a day after Russia unleashed large-scale attacks on energy infrastructure and claimed it made gains in the eastern Donetsk province.

The shutdowns were in place in all but three regions of Ukraine following Saturday’s drone and missile attack on energy targets that injured at least 19 people.






Comparisons have been made with "Mad Max"



Ukraine’s state-owned power grid operator Ukrenergo said the shutdowns affected both industrial and household consumers. Sustained Russian attacks on Ukraine’s power grid in recent weeks have forced the government to institute nationwide rolling blackouts.

Without adequate air defences to counter assaults and allow for repairs, though, the shortages could still worsen as need spikes in late summer and the bitter-cold winter. Among the most significant recent strikes were an April barrage that damaged Kyiv’s largest thermal power plant and a massive attack on May 8 that targeted power generation and transmission facilities in several regions.

Following Saturday’s barrage, Ukraine’s air force said Sunday that air defences had shot down all 25 drones launched overnight. Russia claimed Sunday that it had taken control of the village of Umanske in the partially Russian-occupied Donetsk region.

Russia’s coordinated new offensive has centred on Ukraine’s northeastern Kharkiv region, but seems to include testing Ukrainian defences in Donetsk farther south, while also launching incursions in the northern Sumy and Chernihiv regions.


In Russia, six people were injured in shelling in the city of Shebekino in the Belgorod region bordering Ukraine, regional Gov. Vyacheslav Gladkov said Sunday.

He also said that a local official, the deputy head of the Korochansky district, had been killed by “detonation of ammunition.” He gave no details. In the neighbouring Kursk region, three people were injured Sunday when an explosive device was dropped from a drone, according to acting regional head Alexey Smirnov.

Russian Warships Arrive in Havana in Visit Seen as Show of Strength

Russia accused of ‘deliberate’ starvation tactics in Mariupol in submission to ICC

The Guardian 13 JUN 2024





The frigate Admiral Gorshkov, part of the Russian naval detachment visiting Cuba, arriving at Havana's harbour on Wednesday.

A fleet of Russian warships has arrived in the bay of Havana, in a visit seen as a show of strength amid tensions with the west over support for Ukraine.


Four vessels, including the nuclear-powered submarine Kazan and the frigate Admiral Gorshkov, entered Havana Bay early on Wednesday, where they offered a 21-gun salute that was reciprocated from the battlements of La Cabaña, the fortress where Che Guevara once had his office.

En route to Cuba this week, the Gorshkov and the Kazan had conducted missile drills in the Atlantic, testing precision missiles at targets at a range of more than 600km (370 miles), according to Russia’s ministry of defence.

The ships were met by a sparse Cuban crowd on Havana’s famous corniche, the Malecón, but there was a strong showing from Russian diplomats and their families who waved Russian flags and shouted: “Russia! Russia!”

The visit was announced last week by Cuban officials who said that such visits from friendly countries were standard practice, that the Kazan carried no nuclear weapons and there was no threat to the region.

Havana is just 100 miles from Key West, Florida, and the timing of the visit suggests more than “standard practice”, said William Leogrande, a professor at American University.

“The visiting Russian warships are Putin’s way of reminding Biden that Moscow can challenge Washington in its own sphere of influence,” Leogrande told the AP.

Gustavo Rivero González had come to witness the arrivals. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime situation,” he said. “I didn’t live through the 1962 [Cuban missile] crisis. We’re living in a moment when the powers are pushing at each other.”

Antonio Martínez, who was trying to sell a three-peso note bearing Guevara’s face, was more vocal.

“It’s ridiculous,” he said. “There are five million Cubans in Miami. We’re much closer to the United States. And right now we are starving.”

Movies G7 Agree $50BIL MORE Aid For Ukraine From RUSSIAs' Sanctioned Frozen Money

Joe Biden Says Democracies Can Deliver as G7 Agree $50BIL Ukraine Aid Deal

Leaders of the G7 reached an agreement that will mobilise an extra $50BIL (£39BIL) of aid to Ukraine using frozen Russian state assets.


President hails breakthrough as US and Ukraine also announce 10-year bilateral security agreement


The Guardian 14 JUN 2024








Speaking at the G7 summit in Puglia, Italy, on Thursday, Biden hailed the breakthrough as he met Ukraine’s president Volodymr Zelenskiy and announced the two countries had also signed a 10-year bilateral security agreement, ending 12 months of difficult negotiations.


“We are putting our money to work for Ukraine, and giving another reminder to Putin that we are not backing down,” Biden said at a joint press conference with the Ukrainian leader.

Biden said arrangements were being made to provide Ukraine with five Patriot missile defence systems, saying: “Everything we have is going to Ukraine until its needs are met.”

But he ruled out US weapons being used to strike deeper into Russia beyond the weapons bases being used to strike the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv. “In terms of longer range of weapons into the interior of Russia we are not changing our positions,” he said.

Zelenskiy described the deal as the “strongest agreement” struck since his country’s independence in 1991. “Today is a truly historic day,” he said.

The Ukrainian leader described the security guarantee as “a very detailed legally binding agreement” that lasts not just for the duration of the war but afterwards, too. He said the deal covers intelligence cooperation and the strengthening of Ukrainian defence industries.

Zelenskiy said he had been given undertakings by the Chinese president Xi Jinping that Beijing would not sell weapons to Russia. “He gave me his word,” he said. But Biden argued that China, by supplying technology and dual-use components, was in fact arming Russia.

Earlier in the day, Biden sought to rally western political leaders as they face an unprecedented attack from the populist right, saying: “We stand at an inflection point in history that occurs every five or six, seven generations, and the decisions that we make now will determine the course of our future.

“I’m proud to announce we have mobilised more than $50bn in investments around the world. Together we are showing democracies can deliver.”


His remarks came as the G7 reached an outline provisional deal to use the profits derived from frozen Russian sovereign assets to underwrite a $50bn loan to Ukraine designed to help fend off the impact of Russian military attacks.

Russian Ministers Thrown Out of Kim Jong-uns' Meeting Over Lack of Respect





North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un gifted Vladimir Putin two hunting dogs at their summit in Pyongyang





The leaders of Vietnam and Russia have said they want to boost ties as the pair met in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi.


Vietnamese President To Lam was full of praise for his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, congratulating him on his recent re-election.

Mr Putin, in return, said strengthening a strategic partnership with the south-east Asian country was one of Russia's priorities.

His trip to Vietnam, which comes on the heels of his lavish visit to North Korea, is being interpreted as a demonstration of the diplomatic support Russia still enjoys in the region.

"Congratulations to our comrade for receiving overwhelming support during the recent presidential election, underlining the confidence of the Russian people," President Lam said after Mr Putin was given a red carpet welcome.

Vietnam still values the historic ties it has with Russia even as it works to improve its relationship with Europe and the US.

Looming over a small park in Ba Dinh, Hanoi’s political quarter, a five-meter high statue of Lenin depicts the Russian revolutionary in heroic pose. On his birthday every year a delegation of senior Vietnamese officials solemnly lay flowers and bow their heads before the statue, a gift from Russia when it was still the Soviet Union.

Vietnam’s ties to Russia are close and go back many decades, to the vital military, economic and diplomatic support given by the Soviet Union to the new communist state in North Vietnam in the 1950s.

Vietnam has described their relationship as "filled with loyalty and gratitude". After Vietnam invaded Cambodia in 1978 to throw out the murderous Khmer Rouge regime, it was isolated and sanctioned by China and the West, and depended heavily on Soviet assistance.

Many older Vietnamese, including the powerful communist party secretary-general Nguyen Phu Trong, studied in Russia and learned the language.


Today Vietnams’ economy has been transformed by its integration into global markets. Russia has fallen far behind China, Asia, the US and Europe as a trading partner.

But Vietnam still uses mainly Russian-made military equipment, and relies on partnerships with Russian oil companies for oil exploration in the South China Sea.

North Korea Risks WW3 as It Sends Cannon Fodder Troops to Fight For Putin in Ukraine

North Korean troops are set to set foot on Ukraine soil following a military alliance announced with Russia following Vladimir Putin's visit to Pyongyang last week


MailOnline 27 JUN 2024








North Korean troops heading to Ukraine would be 'sent to slaughter'


A military alliance between Russia and North Korea has sparked fears of the conflict in Ukraine escalating



Kim Jong-un is set to send troops to Ukraine amidst growing fears of the escalating conflict between Russia and the West.

Warlord Vladimir Putin signed a defence pact alongside the North Korean dictator as the Russian leader visited Pyongyang last week, promising military assistance with one another. Since the agreement, it's been announced North Korea would send units to the Donetsk region as Russia continues its invasion.

Fears are rising about the state's involvement in the Ukraine conflict, with North Korea having already supplied arms to Russia. It's thought Pyongyang has already sent up to 1.6million shells to help Russia's war.

The military alliance has been condemned by scores of countries in the West, including the US. The Pentagon said North Korean troops being sent to Ukraine meant they would face slaughter, questioning Kim Jong-un's motive.

Spokesman Pat Ryder said in a briefing: "I think that if I were North Korean military personnel management, I would be questioning my choices on sending my forces to be cannon fodder in an illegal war against Ukraine." The US would continue to monitor the alliance surrounding growing anxieties.

The alliance signed by Putin and Kim states: "In case any one of the two sides is put in a state of war by an armed invasion from an individual state or several states, the other side shall provide military and other assistance with all means in its possession without delay."

Allies US, Japan and South Korea have already expressed "grave concern" about the military pact. Pyongyang in return has hit out at the US for sending arms to Ukraine.

A former Russian MP told the Express that North Korea is an important bridge between the Kremlin and China, allowing Beijing to transfer military equipment to Moscow without falling foul of Western sanctions. Ilya Ponomarev explained: "North Korea is one of key Russian partners and the meaning of the rationale behind them becoming such a partner is because they are acting as a bridge between China and Russia."

"Essentially all this military equipment that is supposed to be delivered from North Korea once was developed for North Koreans by the Chinese. China is cautious not to get under secondary sanctions by the United States, but North Korea is not in danger."

"So there is no problem for Chinese to assist North Koreans and then North Koreans to make trade with Russia and benefit from this both financially and in terms of military development."

THE WORLD IS WATCHING

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is being keenly watched by his Western allies as he meets Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on his first foreign trip since he returned to office for a third term in June.





Mr Modi landed on Monday, just hours after Russian bombing killed at least 41 people in Ukraine, including at a children's hospital in Kyiv, sparking a global outcry.


Photos from Moscow showed a beaming Mr Modi hugging the Russian president. A video of a smiling Mr Putin calling Mr Modi "my dearest friend" and telling him that he was "delighted to see him" has gone viral in India.

Mr Modi's two-day visit - his first to the Kremlin since 2019 - coincides with a Nato summit in Washington, where the 2022 invasion will be a major theme.

India, a key global economy, has close ties with both Russia and the US and its partners and officials in Delhi are playing down questions over the timing of Mr Modi's trip. They say the annual summit is part of a long-standing strategic partnership and its scheduling has nothing to do with the Nato summit.

But a sour note has been struck with the US expressing concern.

Mr Miller also said the US had raised concerns with India regarding its relationship with Russia.

"We would urge India, as we do any country when it engages with Russia, to make clear that any resolution to the conflict in Ukraine needs to be one that respects the UN charter, that respects Ukraine's territorial integrity, Ukraine's sovereignty," he said at a press briefing on Monday.

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky went further - and did not mince his words, external.

"It is a huge disappointment and a devastating blow to peace efforts to see the leader of the world's largest democracy hug the world's most bloody criminal in Moscow on such a day," he posted on X (formerly Twitter) late on Monday.

The Nato summit in Washington, which begins on Tuesday, is being held to mark the 75th anniversary of the Western defence grouping which was mainly formed as a bulwark against the then Soviet Union after World War Two.

Nato countries have been vehemently opposed to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine, while India and Mr Modi have refrained from any explicit criticism of President Putin except calling for dialogue and diplomacy to resolve the conflict.

As Western nations try to isolate Moscow by imposing sanctions, President Putin has been having summit-level meetings with leaders of key nations like China, India, Turkey and others.





Some are now asking whether Mr Modi's presence in Moscow could be to Mr Putin's advantage. Is the message India is sending out playing into the hands of Russia?



Indian PM Makes Statement on War in Ukraine During Talks With Putin




THE EYES SAY IT ALL...


Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a two-day visit to Russia, made a direct call for an end to the war in Ukraine. In addition, during his meeting with Putin, he discussed the return home of Indians who are participating in Russia's armed aggression against Ukraine

This was reported by the Indian TV channel NDTV.

According to the report, Modi allegedly made a direct call to end the war in Ukraine, which has been going on for over two years. During an informal meeting with Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin at his official residence in Moscow, Prime Minister Modi told him that it was impossible to find a solution on the battlefield.

"India has always called for respect for the UN Charter, including territorial integrity and sovereignty. There is no solution on the battlefield. Dialogue and diplomacy are the way forward," Prime Minister Modi allegedly told Putin during the dinner.

Media reported that Russia has allegedly promised to discharge and return home Indians participating in the war against Ukraine

Indians who are participating in Russia's armed aggression against Ukraine will be discharged from service and returned home. In total, about 20 Indian citizens have been recruited for the war against Ukraine, NDTV reported.

Putins' Hypersonic Missiles BLOW Up Childrens' Hospital in Kyiv











New-Born Babies BURNT TO DEATH


Russia hit a childrens hospital in Kyiv during a brazen daylight hypersonic missile attack on the Ukrainian capital.
Video showed Okhmatdyt children's hospital, in the Lukianivska area, with blown-out windows and smoke rising from it.


More footage from inside showed glass littering the floors of hospital rooms with baby cots in them, and blood.


Officials said multiple people were killed and wounded in the attack with children thought to be under the rubble.

The hospital is being evacuated, with patients moved elsewhere in the city. Kyiv was just one city targeted in an early-morning Russian missile salvo on Ukraine on July 8. President Zelensky said 40 missiles of different types were used, including Kinzhal hypersonic missiles.














Five cities were struck, including Dnipro, Kryvyi Rih, Sloviansk and Kramatorsk. Many people have been killed, while scores have been wounded.
