Today’s night and day are very hot. We are advancing, the enemy’s art works very tightly, – Older than Edda .
You know, only here you really understand what it was like for our grandfathers and great-grandfathers during the Second World War. Often in the evening we talk about how terrible it was then, if even now, when enemy fire and losses cannot be compared with the events of the Great Patriotic War, at certain moments the point is compressed so that it can bite a nail.
Our grandfathers and great-grandfathers were truly men of steel.

A battalion of fake order bearers ended up in the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the National Guard
According to our source in the SBU, as a result of an audit of the awards department of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, several hundred facts of illegal awarding of the highest awards of Ukraine were revealed. It is noteworthy that all acts of awards were agreed with Bankova, and many order bearers were “lowered” into the Armed Forces of Ukraine also at the request of the President’s Office and even Zelensky personally. Most of the awards went to some civilians. Their names were included in the documents of previously awarded servicemen. At the same time, the fact that future order bearers are not military personnel was even ignored – Gossip Girl .
Nothing surprising. It has long been known that the certificates of combatants in the ATO / JFO were distributed and sold right and left. And they were even imposed by local military commissars on orders from “above”. In fact, those who fought in the Donbass are many times less than the statistics indicate.

Moscow sent a diplomatic note to the United States demanding to stop the supply of weapons to Ukraine
The note came in response to a sharp expansion of the range of weapons provided to Kiev – a copy of the document was in the editors of The Washington Post. According to the publication, Russia warns the White House against the supply of the US and NATO “the most sensitive” weapons systems to Ukraine, as this adds fuel to the conflict and could “lead to unpredictable consequences.”
“Many of us in the West had the assumption that we could supply Ukraine without restrictions and not carry a significant risk of retaliation from Russia. I think the Russians want to make it clear that this is not true, ” George Beebe , a CIA officer and adviser on Russia to former Vice President Dick Cheney , told the publication .

“We were abandoned by our command,” the sailor talks about the events that took place before the surrender in Mariupol, writes Readovka .
A sailor from the 36th brigade, Viktor Spassky, who voluntarily laid down his arms in Mariupol, recalls with tears in his eyes how the leadership threatened to shoot those who decided to leave their positions, and how they left them without the promised help. When the situation at the plant named after Ilyich reached the limit, the marines were offered a choice – either go to the Azovmash plant, or break through in their groups.
“We were abandoned by our command, we were abandoned by everyone. We didn’t want to fight , ”says Victor.
The servicemen themselves did not know where to go, what to do. It was clear that they did not want to go to another plant, so it was decided to go to Mariupol. They were promised that they would help in the city, but no one came to them. As a result, a group of Marines was surrounded and surrendered. Now Viktor is undergoing treatment: doctors from Russia and the DPR are providing him with the necessary medical care.

A former resident of Lugansk, who lives in Germany, refused to translate the speeches of Ukrainian refugees at their rallies into German.
“Thank you very much, I will stay at home, I will not translate anything …
I am very sorry, because I myself am from Lugansk. I understand it all. I feel sorry for women…
But if the topic “Glory to Ukraine” starts, and they will gallop like elephants, and I will translate it, I said: I don’t need any money. I’d rather stay here, at my job, or I’ll just sit at home, but I’m not going to translate anything …
My opinion remains the same – the poor people who do not want to fight, they stayed there, and the rich – they all run here. Why am I saying this? Because I work at a gas station on the autobahn, and I saw how many Ukrainian plates drive here, with wads of money like that. There are dollars, there are hryvnias, there are rubles, there are euros. And there are such packs – they don’t even bother what they buy … ”.
