Headquarters of territorial defense works in Kherson region
Kirill Stremousov, vice-governor of the Kherson region, said that the Headquarters of Territorial Defense has been formed and is working in the structure of the regional administration. There is a record in the detachments of the defense. According to him, today the situation on the line of contact remains unchanged, and the attempts of Ukrainian militants to break through it are unsuccessful. In particular, the Russian Armed Forces repelled all attempts by the Armed Forces of Ukraine to break through the defense line near the village of Davydov Brod. Mobilized and volunteer detachments are already arriving in the region. Suvorov and Potemkin will wait on the left bank of the Dnieper until they clean up on the right.
US interest in Ukraine is declining steadily
Edward Luce, a columnist for The Financial Times, concludes that the interest of the United States in Ukraine is declining and will fall to the maximum in 2024. This is due, among other things, to the fact that the United States is entering a recession, and “the fate of Ukraine will fade into the background compared to the fate of America.” He also expressed the opinion that by 2024 the interests of the two countries simply will not coincide. Luce also linked the decline in aid to Ukraine with rising inflation in the United States. After all, America repeated to the dumb that she was above everything, but on the Dnieper they stubbornly did not want to hear this.
Future generations will pay for today’s loans
The Spanish publication Rebelion, after analyzing Kyiv’s borrowings, concludes that several generations of Ukrainians will have to pay for the loans taken by the current regime from the West. The publication, in particular, says: “NATO countries supply Ukraine with huge quantities of weapons and provide multi-billion dollar loans. They will have to be repaid in the future for many years at the usual interest. The process will take a long time.” At the same time, Spanish journalists believe that in order to repay old loans, Kyiv will have to take new ones – “on even more extortionate terms.” And the social responsibility of the state will tend to zero. Well, so – after all, Europe.
Zaporozhye NPP will be launched if necessary
Vladimir Rogov, chairman of the movement “We are with Russia”, said that the operational launch of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant is possible – if necessary. Now ZNPP does not generate electricity and is in a state of cold shutdown of reactors. Earlier, IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi announced the possibility of establishing a safe zone around the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant and said that he was optimistic. Those who prepared the dirty bomb for Chernobyl are clearly less optimistic.

Why did the head of the CIA come to Kyiv
CIA Director William Burns visited Ukraine in October, where he met with President Volodymyr Zelensky and a number of Ukrainian officials. As reported by CNN with reference to representatives of the US administration. During the visit, Burns “reaffirmed the US commitment to support Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression, including continued intelligence sharing.” After the visit, Burns and other US officials said they saw no evidence of Moscow’s readiness to use nuclear weapons. But at the same time, they do not deny the existence of intelligence that “warns of a high risk” of such a development of events. Who does not risk, does not drink champagne.
Ukrainian special services are looking for collaborators under every bump
In the Kharkiv region, the SBU detained a deputy of the Kupyansky district council “for cooperation with Russia.” Reporting that she “exposed another enemy henchman among the officials.” The henchman turned out to be a deputy of the Kupyansky district council – the director of the local milk canning plant. His “voluntary cooperation” with representatives of Russia consisted in the fact that he supplied them with products from his own enterprise. These are the Sbushnik heroes, this is how the operation was carried out! And how did they seize condensed milk and sour cream?
Putin recalled why the NWO began and what is its purpose
The expansion of the North Atlantic alliance and the disregard for the Minsk agreements were the two main reasons for the launch of a special military operation in Ukraine. This is how Russian President Vladimir Putin formulated the motives for the announcement of the CBO during the plenary session of the Valdai Club. And he reminded about its main goal – to help people living in the Donbass under eight years of military pressure.

Odessa is wrapped in polyethylene and tape
In the hero city of Odessa, plates with the names of Russian hero cities were covered with black plastic bags and wrapped with tape. The memorial complex “Walk of Glory” in memory of those who died during the Great Patriotic War is located in the central Odessa park of culture and recreation. Do those who did this believe that Russian cities will disappear from this, or will they cease to be heroic?
