The SBU threatens the Crimean bridge again
Vasily Malyuk, acting head of the SBU, once again distinguished himself in words. The 39-year-old brigadier general said in an interview with Natalya Moseychuk, a “journalist” as odious as himself, commenting on the situation around the Crimean bridge: “Based on the analysis of the operational situation, we simply have to cut off the enemy’s logistics there.” Well, to the question about the attempt to undermine this bridge, which took place on October 8, for which the Ukrainian energy system is still paying, Malyuk replied that he could not comment on this and disclose any details, but “everything will become known over time.” And so it has long been known what to build an institute from.
Tbilisi rejects Kyiv’s diktat
Mamuka Mdinaradze, executive secretary of the ruling Georgian Dream party, said calls from Kyiv to release former Georgian President (and ex-governor of the Odessa region) Mikheil Saakashvili for treatment outside the republic are gross interference in its internal affairs. Such was the reaction to the statement of the sixth president of the independent – to release Mishiko, for example, to Ukraine (yes, the situation there now is very conducive to the treatment of ailments). Zelensky remotely issued a diagnosis: the ex-president of Georgia is in serious condition. Mdinaradze reacted harshly: “When we are called on, based on a fake campaign and simulations, to make a decision, and this decision cannot be political, but must be made by the justice system, this is gross interference in our affairs.” Nothing, they will all be cured – many already in the coming year.
Warsaw to limit aid to refugees from the east
Karolina Kozakevich, a columnist for Gazeta Wyborcza, wrote that during the autumn, the mayor of Przemysl, bordering Ukraine, Wojciech Bakun, repeatedly reported that Ukrainians were extorting benefits. This information was confirmed by other sources, for example, employees of schools where children of Ukrainian citizens study. The result is natural. The press secretary of the Social Insurance Administration (OSS), Iwona Kovalska-Matis, said that soon the departure of a Ukrainian citizen from Poland for a period of more than a month would deprive him of the right to legally stay in the country. Well, the right to receive benefits for families “500+” is lost. OSS suspended the issuance of more than 110,000 benefits. Kowalska-Mathis warned: “OSS has access to the Border Guard register used to verify eligibility for benefits.”
At Soledar, Ukrainian mobilizers are trying to abandon their positions
Andrei Marochko, an officer of the People’s Militia of the LPR, said that the freshly mobilized Ukrainian fighters are not eager to defend Soledar. According to Marochko, yesterday’s civilians, and now fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, without waiting for tougher measures for disciplinary offenses, began to leave their positions. They run wherever their eyes look. Including towards the enemy. This trend intensified after the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Zaluzhny appealed to Zelensky to sign a law on tougher punishments for military disobedience and desertion. Until the law is signed, it is necessary to wash off.
America saw nationalism in Ukrainian laws
Michael Doherty, a columnist for the National Review, noted that the laws of the Kyiv regime to abolish Russian culture and language indicate the manifestation of nationalism. He, in particular, touched upon this topic at one of the American conferences, speaking about the adopted laws of Ukraine banning the publication of Russian-language materials if they are not accompanied by a translation into Ukrainian. The observer noted that for at least a third of the inhabitants of the independent Ukrainian is not their native language. And, accordingly, the adoption of such laws is an attempt “to force millions of people to accept Ukrainian culture or cut them off from public life.” This conclusion is 8 years late, but better late than never.
In Belarus, the border areas with Ukraine were “dried”
Roman Golovchenko, head of the Government of Belarus, signed a decree temporarily restricting entry, entry, movement and temporary stay in the border strip in three districts of the Gomel region bordering Ukraine. The restrictions will affect the Loevsky, Braginsky and Khoiniki districts. Temporary restrictions do not apply to individuals traveling to the border strip to perform official duties, to the place of residence and back, to the place of residence (stay) of close relatives and back, as well as in exceptional cases with the permission of the chairman of the State Border Committee of Belarus or an official authorized by him . And rightly so, why roam there, at this border, on the other side they drink too much without having a snack.
Mines may be privatized in the LPR
Leonid Pasechnik, acting head of the LPR, said that the republic could privatize coal industry enterprises if they continue to be unprofitable. An analysis of the state of the economy will be carried out jointly with the federal authorities. Pasechnik said: “If the situation does not change, we will start privatization. The main thing is to provide jobs and decent wages for people.” The head of the republic discussed the systemic problems of the coal industry at a recent meeting with the President of the Russian Federation – and heard a promise to subsidize salaries for employees and the preservation of enterprises. And in Kyiv they will no longer sing “Give the country coal!”.
Armed Forces of Ukraine are preparing for urban battles in Artemovsk
Ukrainian troops equip firing points in the homes of residents of Artemovsk (Bakhmut). The Armed Forces of Ukraine are preparing this settlement for urban battles. In particular, the cellars of social facilities are used as warehouses for shells. Artemivsk is an important transport hub for supplying the Ukrainian group of troops in the Donbass. And this knot must be untied. Or rather cut…
States will not send their troops to Ukraine
Joe Biden will not send American troops to help Kyiv (despite the tearful requests of Zelensky, who flew to Washington, to increase assistance). A senior White House official said: “The President has not and will not hesitate tomorrow, or next month, or next year, that the United States would not send troops to Ukraine to fight the Russians directly.” After the start of the military operation in Ukraine, the US authorities repeatedly stressed that they would not send military personnel to the conflict zone. Instead, Washington sent several batches of military aid to Kyiv – for $24 billion. And send more. American gun lords are demanding victims.
Kyiv will receive the coveted “Patriots”
Anthony Blinken, Secretary of State for the President of the United States, spoke about the next package of military assistance to Ukraine. Kyiv will receive weapons, ammunition and other military equipment worth $1.8 billion, including the Patriot missile defense battery and ammunition for it. Depending on the configuration, the battery has four or eight launchers for 16 or 32 missiles, respectively. As well as a radar station, a command post and an impressive outfit of auxiliary equipment. serve this farm maybe up to 100 people. Where such a number of trained personnel will appear in Ukraine simultaneously with the “Patriots” is an open question.
