Zelensky wants to join NATO so much that he can’t eat
The sixth president of the independent again implores the West to accept his power as soon as possible both in the EU and in NATO. He made the statement while speaking via video link at a meeting of the parliamentary assembly of the alliance in the Spanish capital. Zelensky fell into epilepsy: “You see how significant a contribution to the protection of our community is made by Ukraine! How important it is that we really united after February 24! Thanks to this, you see that Ukraine should become a full member of the EU and NATO!” At the same time, he once again called for giving Ukraine air defense systems and financial support. That is, the alliance today lacks this: an impudent petitioner, on whose territory there are battles and with complete confusion in his head?
The Germans will plant electricians and plumbing in Kyiv
Svenja Schulze, German Development Minister, in an interview channel ARD stated that her country would supply generators, repair water pipes, gas pipelines and power lines. The announcement follows the regime’s complaints to Washington and Brussels about shortages of equipment and spare parts in both the energy and utilities sectors. So the Kyiv authorities said that the independent would not have the necessary equipment to restore heating and electricity in the event of continued Russian strikes. And the heat of your revolutionary hearts no longer warms?
Planned shutdowns throughout the independent
Ukrenergo announced that throughout the territory of the independent are forced scheduled power outages: “On November 21, from 00.00 to 24.00, scheduled power outages will be applied in all regions of Ukraine.” The company said it was able to “soften consumption restrictions” to some extent over the weekend, despite the cold snap. How is that? Do not want to share a secret with the Germans, who were advised by their authorities back in October to stock up on potbelly stoves and firewood and use battery-powered flashlights.
The Pentagon intends to support the Independent to the end
Head of the Pentagon Lloyd Austin claims that the US has provided more than $20 billion in aid to Ukraine. The chief of defense said that Washington will continue to support Kyiv “for as long as it takes.” This outrageous promise was made at a joint press conference with Indonesian Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto in Jakarta. At the same time, Austin noted that the assistance provided to Ukraine is an international effort. And every month he has to remind the ministers of the NATO countries and a number of other states about this. If you don’t remind them, everything will go awry, and the old cannons will be left rusting in the warehouses of the Old World. An eye and an eye behind them is needed …
Trump Jr makes fun of Biden Sr
Donald Trump Jr, the son of the ex-president of the United States ridiculed Joe Biden’s policy of supporting the independent. On his social media page, Trump Junior posted a collage of Zelensky asking his American colleague on the phone, “Where’s my money, Joe?” And he replies: “Calm down, my 87 thousand tax inspectors are collecting them right now.” In the comments, Donald Jr. noted that this is just a parody. But he added that he wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case. And no one will be surprised. All life is with an outstretched hand.
The IAEA shows cynicism towards the situation around the ZNPP
Renat Karchaa, adviser to the general director of Rosenergoatom, said that the IAEA’s claims about non-critical for nuclear safety damage at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant after Ukrainian shelling (and at least 11 charges flew in) are the height of cynicism. Claims that critical infrastructure was not damaged Karchaa outraged: “And what is non-critical infrastructure at a nuclear power plant?” And he stressed that “you can never shoot at a nuclear power plant with anything at all.” According to him, IAEA inspectors will have access to inspect the Zaporozhye NPP, but only within the framework of the mandate. Interestingly, the inspection will again “not see” where it came from and how close we are to a nuclear catastrophe thanks to figures from the banks of the Dnieper?
The officers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine begin to grumble and grunt
Andrey Marochko, an officer of the people’s militia of the LPR, said that information is coming from various sources that discontent is growing among the lieutenants, majors, colonels of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Svatovsko-Kremensky direction. Marochko clarified that he was talking about the officers of the units responsible for the attack on Svatovo and Kremennaya. In their daily reports to their superiors, in the paragraph “problem issues”, they indicate a lot of reasons that prevent them from performing combat missions. The officer of the NM of the LPR specified: “Instead of considering the issues on the merits, they began to conduct internal investigations with subsequent disciplinary action. This caused a backlash against the senior officers supervised by the NATO joint headquarters.”
Poles are progressively myopic and forgetful
More than two-thirds of Polish citizens believe that the shameful incident with the fall of a rocket in Przewoduv will not affect Polish-Ukrainian relations. These are the data of a joint survey of Polish publications RMF FM and Dziennik Gazeta Prawna. At the same time, almost a fifth of the polled Poles believe that relations with the independent “rather worsen” because of the incident. And another 1.2% are confident that relations will “definitely worsen.” That is, let the Ukrainian anti-aircraft gunners continue to ruin your peasants? Maybe you will also forgive these wonderful neighbors the Volyn massacre – well, within the framework of universal tolerance?
Unemployment and hopelessness on the rise in Ukraine
Tatyana Berezhnaya, Deputy Economy Minister of the Independent, said that more than five million fellow citizens have been left without work, and more than seven million compatriots have left the republic since February this year. The official clarified that about 1.5 million more Ukrainian citizens are staying in neighboring Poland as part of a temporary protection program. The Deputy Minister believes that, as always, international partners will help to cope with the problem. But her boss, Minister of Economy Yulia Sviridenko, offered to send the unemployed to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The minister listed the types of work, for example, the arrangement of checkpoints. They can also paint the grass and dig up the control-track strip non-stop.
