All-Russia is moving to liberation

 (only on youtube)
'come and see'
- a partisan film
Watch this film --- and you
will - finally - understand.
Some in the West are fond
of a loose use of words...
''stunning'', for example, to describe
a work of art... but believe me
when I say - this film about a
lad of 14 - made me laugh
and cry and - by the end 
- I was left stunned.

A recent attempt on youtube by an obvious
anti-Russian, to pour scorn on this film's
historical accuracy, tries to point out
that the nazi troops state they are
members of a unit that was not
there.. but can't bring himself
to see that they might have
been lying!

"Veterans and children of the Great Patriotic War:
to the Government 
and people of Germany".
By events in Ukraine
Today, when the German government decided
to supply Ukraine with lethal weapons, the
world has changed — the silhouettes of a 
new world war are more than clearly 
outlined! And again - Germany! 
But there are honest people in Germany, anti-
fascists, and we hope that this Message will 
fall into their hands. People born between 
1927 and 1945 have the status of "war 
children" in Russia.
All those who survived that war can subscribe to this letter.
We think that actual signatures are not necessary, we
suggest that veterans
(or "war children") read them
this letter, 
independently or with someone's help, 
and send us (at the coordinates indicated
below) something like 
the following: 
Moscow, Ivanov Ivan Ivanovich, 90 years old, disabled
war veteran (or otherwise), Hero of 
the Soviet Union
(or Holder of the Order of 
Glory... or otherwise),
was repatriated to
 Germany during the war
(or otherwise). 

Or just the city, full name, and age. The 
main thing, is that they should be real 
people who are familiar with the text.
We, the last veterans and all the peoples of 
Russia who survived that great and terrible
war, are now on the verge of death! Our 
time is already running out. For a huge 
part of our lives, we hoped we would 
come to the end of it, in peace - 
without all-destroying hatred! 
For the painfully long decades after the Second World War,
we overcame our righteous anger! I 
long for retribution for
the innumerable wounds, spiritual and physical, that we
still carry in our bodies and our hearts! And most of us
have forgiven! And not in a small way due to the fact
that Germany for many years has demonstrated its
repentance its understanding of what it has done!
And we have overcome, not only ourselves, but
also the voice of the blood of 
our barbarically
exterminated relatives! 
By whom?
Germans ...fascists! 
We have forgiven... following the laws of human
coexistence! So it was... until 2014. And then,
in 2014, when everything began in Ukraine... 
we looked with hope at Germany and at the
then Chancellor Angela Merkel. We couldn't
imagine that after all that the Germans did 
in Ukraine, after Babi Yar, after mountains 
of mutilated corpses, they would still look 
with lust at the Ukrainian fields that can 
feed Europe today! Or they, the Germans, 
who have covered the Crimea they once 
promised with blood, will still somehow
be interested in turning the Crimea 
an American and in general a NATO 
base, ideal for aggression against
Which would be clearly
aimed at a future war. 
After all, only fools do not understand the meaning and
goals of the entire coup in 
Ukraine... in the conditions
of which 
Russia behaved in the only possible way! But
the Germans are not fools! 
We the Russians, know for
your psychology, as "brothers in blood" - our
blood, which you 
"prudently" shed in rivers! 
We remember your "systematic methods of
population reduction"! Our population! Until
now, in different parts of our once united
Homeland, where the boot of German 
fascism was trodden, we find hidden 
mass graves of our civilians: in the 
Novgorod region, in the Kuban, in 
the Rostov region, in Karelia. In 
Belarus, in 2021... hundreds of 
civilian remains... were found 
in Brest    ...on the site of the 
Jewish ghetto the Trostenets 
concentration camp....  near 
Minsk terrible in its tragedy
revealed the secret of the 
remains... of thousands of 
tortured and killed people! 
We are talking about tens of thousands of newly
discovered victims of Nazism! This blood - still
cries out for revenge - and for decades the
memory of the barbarously destroyed 
Russian people, and monuments to 
Russian soldiers, liberators, have 
been desecrated with impunity! 
And the new Nazis are marching in the Baltic
States and Ukraine, in front of the entire
"civilized" world!  But in 2014, we were 
sincerely convinced -- that in this new 
Nazi demarche it's the Germans who 
will be our associates in preventing 
this meanness! 
We hoped that, guided by an elementary
conscience, the Germans would not 
participate..  in an obviously fascist 
anti-state coup in Ukraine! After all 
...the subsequent catastrophe of 
modern Ukraine was committed 
by direct descendants of those 
who were special bastards in 
the German army! Clearly, 
Americans and Canadians have only hidden and preserved
this diabolical heritage, feeding this 
generation, but the
product of this evil... is Germany! Hitler's Germany! And
it was impossible for us to believe that it was 
that would again give a 
"road map" to these inhumans!
we were wrong! Germany has once again allowed
these fascist geeks 
to enter the world! 
The support of modern Germany - in the face of
the new government of Ukraine-Bandera, the
heirs of the SS division " Galicia ", the thugs 
of the UPA OUN and all other abominations;
is simply unthinkable for us! This is beyond 
all that is human!  But you, Germany, have
already done it and continue to do it! You 
have, once again, set your sights on the 
Slavic world and these geeks are blood 
from the blood of German Nazism! And 
again to Russia! 
Only, even more despicable: inciting our closest
Ukrainian brothers against us! And you know it!
You know this as well as we do! You killed one
nation in that Great War! Yes, we are
one people! 
The truth is written and often spoken about 
by your own Steinmeier, who at the same 
time viciously took a direct part in the 
Kiev coup of 2014 — fascist in fact! 
This American may not be clear about some-
thing, but it's more than that, for you!  And 
after all, it was your vykormysh..  that got 
ready..  for their torchlight processions in 
Kiev! The living shadow of Nazi Germany 
is behind all this. It was only temporarily
covered up by sly diplomacy — "helmets 
instead of guns"! But that's it, "masks 
are reset"! Your supply of German 
weapons to Ukraine today, is 
natural, it is in the logic of 
your policy of recent 
Today it is clearly pro-fascist! You have taken 
this step: German weapons will kill Russians 
again! Keep killing. During the years of the 
conflict in the Donbas, your professional 
killers have already killed Russians, at 
least by teaching them...  "how to kill 
correctly"! Only now -- it's even more 
despicable — you're teaching this to
- your blood brothers!  Donbass is on 
your conscience! Thousands of lives 
of its peaceful citizens --- again your 
handiwork! We do not care about the
role of Americans, in everything that
happens: there, is money-God!  We, 
veterans of that war, its children, 
are concerned about the role of 
the Germans! Because it is you 
who know -- exactly -- who the 
Ukrainian "national battalions" 
consist of --- and could have 
prevented and stopped, this 
new fascism !  But they did
not do it! And just by doing 
this — you are once again, 
responsible to history! 
And you are definitely participating -- in the 
preparation of Ukraine for war with Russia! 
You can't help but understand the purpose 
of everything that happened --- from the
unconstitutional coup in Kiev ....to the 
bloodshed in the Donbass!  But, in fact
this is preparation for the Third World 
War! And again, you are Germans... 
Germany!  We hear from the high 
German rostrum in Berlin today: 
"Russia will pay a high price"!!! 
This is the German Chancellor's 
speech! Unthinkable! We have 
already paid the price — 27 
million of our lives! Isn't that 
enough for you?! What price 
are you still talking about? 
There is no home --- in Russia, Ukraine and
Belarus - where "this price" isn't paid! And
there is no home in Germany, that did 
not participate in that terrible, bloody 
barbarism!  It's scary!  It's wild! And 
today, there are, already, more than 
13 thousand dead Russian people 
in the Donbass at the hands of 
the new Nazis! 
The German Chancellor's public mockery of the
Russian genocide in the Donbas is a crime in
itself! How much can the lessons of history 
be misunderstood and discredited!  The 
scariest story in the world! Do you want 
to be even scarier?! After all, this new 
"Dranch nach Oschtern" ..may lead to 
the fact that the 2nd Nuremberg trial 
over you will no longer be - there will 
simply be no humanity! You won't be 
here! But a special Ecumenical trial 
of you Germans is inevitable! Over 
all aggressors — but over you 
World justice will be served! And we, the last
veterans of that terrible war, are leaving this
world as witnesses!  Witnesses for the 
PROSECUTION! And today the victory 
will be ours, but those who died 
yesterday, or those of us who 
will die today, already bear 
witness to the role of the 
German people, in the 
history of the human 
world — a bloody 
German weapons are back in the 
hands of Nazi thugs! Please stop!

Efran and Poet's tribute to
 all those killed by wars


Expert: strikes on Ukraine's
 infrastructure must continue
November 28th, 11:16pm
The nervous reaction of the Ukrainian authorities to
 Russian strikes on infrastructure, suggests that
 Russia is doing everything right. These strikes 
should continue, the Russian expert believes.
"The fact that they are fidgeting -- the fact that they are
reacting in this way, shows that we are doing the right
thing ----- we have hit the bull's eye. This should have
been done... from the very beginning. And what we 
are doing now, is not enough. We need more --- no 
matter how banal it may sound," political analyst
Serhiy Mikheev said on the Sunday Evening with
Vladimir Solovyov program, commenting on the 
strikes on Ukrainian infrastructure.
According to him, transport infrastructure, server 
centres, goznak – in general, everything that 
brings down and disorganizes the life of 
the Ukrainian state.
If these people had nowhere to go, it would be a
humanitarian catastrophe, well, there are such
beautiful countries as the US, Canada, and the
European Union. There are 35 countries that
supported Ukraine. Well, let each accept 
500 thousand rubles!
According to him, it is necessary to make sure that
 Ukraine is forced to send 10-15 million refugees to
 Europe, and let this Europe solve the problems. 
"She's rich, she'll decide."
The modern Ukrainian philistine is very much about
 money, living conditions and everything else. The
 whole dream of an ordinary Ukrainian is based 
on the growth of prosperity, that --- they say 
--- Ukraine is not allowed to enter..... a
more well-fed and sweet life.
"If they understand that there will be no rich, well-fed,
sweet life, the mood will start to change. Yes, this 
will not give us an absolute victory, but it will 
make it easier for our troops to work and 
change the situation, this is absolutely 
certain," Sergey Mikheev concluded.

NATO Drones Cross Border
November 26th, 8.41pm
Pskov Region Governor Mikhail Vedernikov
 about attempts by NATO drones
to cross the
 state border. 
"We have never spoken extensively about this, but
 there have also been attempts.. to illegally cross
 the border by military drones and other aircraft. 
All this "peaceful interaction" flourished even 
before the start of the special military 
operation, and it is clear that now 
everything has become even 
more acute," he said, in his 
speech, at Pskov Inter-
national Media Forum.

An Iranian expert said that it is 
impossible for Ukraine to win 
even with the support
by Maria Pavlova
November 26th, 8:16pm
(Komsomolskaya Pravda)
Military theorist Abadi believes that Ukraine will 
not be able to win without the use of nuclear
 weapons, which NATO will not allow
Ukraine has no chance of winning the conflict with
 Russia, even with the help of NATO countries. 
This is reported by the Iranian 
newspaper Kayhan.
"A complete defeat of the Russian army without the start
of a nuclear war is impossible. If NATO
 intervenes in
the conflict, there will be no 
winners in the nuclear
ashes. In the end, 
the parties will simply destroy
other," says the author, military theorist,
Sayyid Mohammad-
Amin Abadi --- recalling
the NATO countries have repeatedly
stated that 
they have no intention of
entering into a 
direct conflict 
with Russia.
Meanwhile, the United States accused 
Zelensky of wanting to draw NATO 
into a conflict with Russia.
Earlier, the publication Politiko predicted 
an economic catastrophe in Europe, 
because of Biden's course to 
contain China.

The United States has proposed a 
radical way to end the conflict
 in Ukraine
November 26th, 6:36pm 
The Hill called the US withdrawal from NATO 
and the dissolution of the alliance, a way
 resolve the conflict in Ukraine.
The Ukrainian conflict may end if the United States
 ends its membership in NATO. Bruce Fine, the 
Deputy Attorney General, under President 
Reagan, came up with this idea on the 
pages of The Hill.
In his opinion, the military alliance is outdated and has
 lost the meaning of its existence, having lost their
 enemy, in the face of the USSR, and without the
 United States, NATO will turn "from a mighty 
offensive oak into a tiny acorn" that does 
not bother Russia.
 If Moscow loses this existential threat, the
 subsequent termination of the special 
operation in Ukraine... will save the 
United States hundreds of billions 
of dollars, that Washington is 
preparing to send to Kiev. 
"In other words, the war in Ukraine will drag on
indefinitely -- and drain the United States of 
$100 billion a year," the expert warned.
Moreover, Fine is sure that Congress can even 
be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize ---
 passing a law on the US withdrawal 
from NATO.
Earlier, a senior researcher at the Cato Institute, Doug 
Bandow, in an article for The American Conservative 
magazine, said that Ukrainian President Vladimir 
Zelensky, is ready to fight with Russia, to the
 last American. 
According to the expert, this is indicated by the
 actions of the head of state after the incident 
with the fall of a Ukrainian rocket in Poland. 
According to Bandow, Kiev tried to draw 
the United States and NATO into a 
conflict with Russia, but did 
not succeed. This kind of 
provocation is likely to 
be repeated....  the 
analyst believes.

Ex-CIA officer: Zelensky intends to 
drag US and NATO into conflict
November 26th, 2:52pm
“Zelensky’s behaviour shows that he will make every
 effort to draw the US and NATO into an armed
 conflict,” Giraldi said, in an interview with 
YouTube channel Judging Freedom.
According to him, Kiev’s claims about Moscow’s 
involvement in the incident were unfounded
and contradicted the available evidence.
He noted that there was no doubt 
that the missile was Ukrainian.
Earlier, columnist Andrew Koribko accused 
Zelensky of trying to deceive Ukraine 
into starting World War 3.
The Ukrainian leader said that he was not 
100 per cent sure that the missile that 
fell in Poland was Russian.
On November 16th, the Russian Defence Ministry 
said that Russian troops had launched high-
precision missile strikes on November 15th
only against targets on Ukrainian territory 
and no closer than 35 km from the 
Ukrainian-Polish border.
Ukrainian Armed Forces deploy 
artillery in residential areas 
of Kherson
November 26th, 2:06pm
A freelance adviser to the region’s acting governor, 
Malkevych, said that similar tactics of placing 
artillery, had previously been used by 
Ukrainian troops in Mariupol.
The Ukrainian armed forces are using residential
 areas of Kherson as a camouflage and a human
 shield --- placing artillery crews and rocket 
launchers there. This was reported.. by a 
freelance adviser to the acting governor 
of Kherson Region, Oleksandr 
Malkevich, TASS reported.
“All our gloomy predictions that residential buildings, 
residential areas of Kherson, are used as a
 camouflage, as a human shield in order 
to place artillery crews, rocket 
launchers there, including 
with civilians, come 
true,” he said.
A similar tactic of placing artillery had previously 
been used by Ukrainian troops in Mariupol, 
Malkevich recalled.
“So that in the courtyards of residential buildings,
 they would fire at the left bank, often 
indiscriminately, destroying 
everything alive there.
“And when the Russian army responds, these 
pictures are circulated on social networks 
saying that they are killing peaceful 
Kherson. In fact, this is 
a continuation of their
provocations,” he 
Defence Ministry: Russia concerned 
about Pentagon tests of toxic 
substances on military
 in Ukraine
November 26th, 1:42pm
Igor Kirillov, head of the Russian Armed Forces’
 radiation, chemical and biological protection 
troops, has said that infectious disease 
agents were, or are still being, tested 
on military personnel... and the 
mentally ill in Ukraine, under 
the Pentagon’s control.
He also recalled that in the course of the HOD, it

biological programmes in Ukraine violated 
Articles 1 and 4 of the Convention on the 
Prohibition of the Development, 
Production and Stockpiling, of 
Biological and Toxin Weapons 
and on their Destruction.
For instance, an analysis of documents found
 in Ukrainian biolaboratories showed that the
 development of biological weapons 
components was under way, in 
“close proximity to the 
Russian borders”.
Kirillov noted that this information was confirmed 
by work contracts, approved registration cards, 
as well as the reporting documents of the 
Pentagon’s contractors Black & Veatch 
and Metabiota.
The ministry also said that the Russian side proposes
 to take measures to comply unconditionally with the
 requirements of the Convention on the Prohibition 
of the Development, Production and Stockpiling 
of Biological and Toxin Weapons and on 
Their Destruction.
In addition, it became known that former US
Presidential National Security Adviser 
John Bolto ---, had co-authored a 
document on the need for US
bioweapons --- in order to 
modernise the country’s 
army and ensure global
leadership of the 
United States.

SCMP: Zelensky should abandon 
attempts to regain lost
by Evgeny Shakirov
November 26th, 12:01am
Samid Basha, in an article for the South China 
Morning Post (SCMP), writes that Ukrainian 
President, Volodymyr Zelensky, should 
abandon attempts to regain the 
lost territories.
Earlier, Zelensky did not rule out the possibility of
 negotiations, but "only with the Russia that will 
be truly ready for peace." According to
Kiev "did not close the door"
for negotiations with Moscow. 
The President also named several conditions for
 dialogue, including "restoration of territorial 
integrity, respect for the UN Charter, 
compensation for all losses, 
punishment of every war 
criminal & guarantees 
that this... will not 
happen again."
Basha said that Zelensky's demands are unrealistic.
 According to the author, Russian President Vladimir 
Putin won't agree with them. It is in Kiev's interest
 to give up its claims to new Russian regions, in 
order to achieve peace.
Also, as noted in the article, Zelensky's supporters 
are increasingly signaling that the conflict cannot 
be resolved by military means.
A special operation is currently underway in Ukraine. 
It was announced by Putin on February the 24th. 
According to him, the purpose of military operations
is to demilitarize the neighboring country and 
denazify its authorities.

Putin says Russia isn’t fighting 
Ukrainians, but those who use 
them as cannon fodder
November 25th, 4:35pm (TASS)
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday 
said Russia isn’t fighting Ukrainians, but 
those who use them as cannon fodder.
"Unlike those who we have to deal with, and in that 
sense, we have to fight, not them (Ukrainians - 
TASS) -- but those who supply everything to 
them and pay for it, uses them as cannon 
fodder as a matter of fact. That’s not an 
exaggeration: They do not have any 
regard for the cost to human life, 
no regard at all," he said, as he 
met with... the mothers of the 
servicemen who participate
 in the special military 
Putin also said Ukrainian troops have
low morale --- and execute their own.
"Those who misbehave, get executed by shooting
before the unit formation. Our guys saw it, with 
their own eyes. The bodies of those who were 
executed, lie about and don’t get picked 
up. Here’s a recent case: five people 
were executed by shooting, before 
the unit formation. They were the 
people who refused to go or left 
their positions. They have a 
totally different moral 
''That’s another confirmation that we are 
dealing with a neo-Nazi regime, that’s 
not an exaggeration," he said.
Russian troops dislodge AFU 
from Novoselovskoye in LPR
November 25th, 2:44pm
The settlement between Kupianske and Svatove
is key in this area. Russian troops dislodge the
 AFU from there.
“The first streets... are already under the Russian 
flag, advancing, despite the enemy’s attempts
to counterattack. Novoselovskoye, has 
featured regularly in frontline reports 
over the past month, and a fierce 
fight has broken out over it,” 
the news agency reports.
The reason for the fierce fighting is its location 
on the strategically important highway 
between Svatovo and Kupyansk.
“Returning the settlement to Russian army control
 would mean making it difficult for a possible 
enemy offensive on Svatovo and, at the 
same time, could be one of the 
prerequisites for the Russian 
Armed Forces to prepare for 
an offensive on Kupyansk.”
The need for the latter is indicated by the current
 situation on the front, in particular the potential 
threat of an invasion by the AFU
Belgorod region.

Israel makes new arrests amid 
settler attacks, issues verdicts
 to seize more land
November 25th, 10:58am
The Israeli occupation forces launched a number of
 armed incursions on Thursday across the occupied
 West Bank and al-Quds, arresting a number of 
young Palestinian men, amid ongoing illegal 
settler attacks on Palestinians and their 
property in Nablus and al-Khalil.
Israeli soldiers arrested thirteen Palestinians who
 were taken away for interrogation, according to
the Palestinian Prisoners' Club. They face 
charges of participating in acts of 
popular resistance against the 
violence of the settlers and 
the occupation forces.
The arrests come in reaction to the double bombing in 
which one Israeli settler was killed and nearly a dozen
 injured in occupied al-Quds, in what some Israeli 
analysts said could be the beginning of a 
third Intifada.
Media reports said that other armed incursions took 
place in the town of Azzun in the Qalqilya district, 
and Husan in the Bethlehem governorate.
Montaser Abu Rumaila, a Palestinian boy was also
 arrested after being assaulted by security forces 
near the Karantina checkpoint in al-Khalil
Meanwhile, Palestinian medical sources reported that
 two women were injured as a result of settlers
 attacking Palestinian homes, in Khirbet Beit 
Iskaria, which is surrounded by the illegal 
Gush Etzion settlement bloc. Gangs of 
settlers also attacked Palestinian 
homes in the Kasara area, south
 of Hebron. 
New Israeli land grab in West Bank
The Israeli civil administration issued a permission 
on Wednesday for 80 acres of Palestinian land in 
the central occupied West Bank seized in 1984
 to be annexed to the illegal Israeli Tal Shahrit
 settlement outpost.
The administration has declared the area to be 
"state land" in a move which effectively grants
 legal recognition to the outpost by the 
occupation state.
According to the Commission, the land belonged
 to Palestinians in the villages of Bidya and 
Kafr Al-Dik in Salfit Governorate.
Recently on Thursday, Netanyahu's Likud has agreed
 to the demand of far-right lawmaker and head of the
 Religious Zionism party, Bezalel Smotrich to head 
the civil administration, the military agency that
 has broad powers in the West Bank, including 
home demolitions and lands confiscation.
More than 250 illegal settlements have been built
 ...since the 1967 occupation of the Palestinian
 territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds.
Another four monthS of solitary confinement
In a separate development, a young Palestinian
 prisoner -- Ahmed Manasra -- was ordered to 
another 4 months in solitary confinement 
on November 24th, 2022 by an 
occupation court. Manasra 
has been imprisoned for 
over seven years, since
 he was 13 years old.
Ahmad watched his cousin shot dead by settlers before
his eyes, suffered a critical injury, 
experienced torture
and harsh 
interrogation while separated from his
parents, and then 
was held for years... in 
occupation prisons --- which made him 
suffer serious psychological illness.
Solitary confinement of over 15 days is considered
 a form of torture.. as well as his psychological
 vulnerabilities. His lawyer, Khaled Zabarqa,
 noted; he had recently visited Manasra,
 and that his life and health are at 
severe risk.
As reported by the Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network
Samidoun, Ahmad’s case represents 
the struggle of the
nearly 700 children every 
year who are brought before
military courts ------ not to mention the 
many more -- who are subjected to violent night
raids, torture & 
abuse, solitary confinement, 
settler invasions, home demolitions, the
 of family members, siege,
killings --- and other 
violations, from their earliest 
moments in life.
Palestinian detainees have continuously resorted to
 open-ended hunger strikes in an attempt to express
 outrage at detentions.
Israeli jail authorities keep Palestinian prisoners 
under deplorable conditions lacking proper 
hygienic standards.
Palestinian inmates have also been subjected to 
systematic torture, harassment, and repression.

The expert spoke about the 
change in the weapons 
program for 2023
November 25th, 12:35am
In 2023, the state armament program will be 
adjusted, military expert Alexey Leonkov 
told Izvestia.
"All types of weapons will undergo modernization and
improvement. There is no point in listing them - 
programme contains the word "all". The 
operation showed the advantages
disadvantages of all weapons and 
revealed current trends.''

''The SVR has 
shown, that more high-precision weapons will
be used in conflicts. 
For this reason, special attention will
be paid --- to improving the 
precision, range of weapons, 
automation of target designation and combat control 
processes," he said.
Lenkov added that the modernization process will be
 comprehensive. It will affect - for example - the
 dynamic tank protection system, which was 
tested for strength in the free zone with
possible anti-tank weapons.
On November 24th, Russian President Vladimir Putin set a
task for the Russian government not only to
 increase the
numbers of military equipment 
produced, but also to
improve its 

This was stated by the Russian President at a meeting
with members of the 
Coordination Council under the
Government to meet 
the needs of the Armed 
Forces of the Russian Federation.
The Head of State stressed that, in this regard, direct
interaction of the equipment manufacturers with 
those who use it, is extremely important. He 
also noted that this applies... not only to 
special military equipment, but also
medicine, and so on.
On October 21st, Putin signed a decree approving
regulations on the Coordination Council.. and its
composition. Among the tasks of the structure, 
is to make decisions on providing the Russian 
army with weapons, military and special 
equipment, and material resources.
In addition, the Coordination Council will assist in 
the creation of military infrastructure facilities
and regulate digitalization, automation and 
information and analytical support in the
field of defense, and so on.

Ukrainian army suffering major 
casualties --- trying to break 
through defenses in LPR
 November 24th, 6:44pm (TASS)
 Ukrainian troops keep trying to break through the
 allied forces’ defenses... in the Lugansk People’s
Republic (LPR), suffering major manpower and 
equipment losses, commander of the Akhmat 
commando unit, and Deputy Commander of 
the 2nd Army Corps of LPR People’s Militia 
Apty Alaudinov, told TASS on Thursday.
"Every day, they make four to six or even more
 attempts to carry out counteroffensive 
operations but they have come to 
realize..... that, in fact, all their 
attempts --- lead to huge man-
power & equipment losses 
on our segment of the
line," he
pointed out. 
"They are like moths flying into the fire -- they keep
 trying every day, sending their fighters to die and
 they actually fail to even retrieve their dead, so 
thousands of bodies remain scattered on the 
battlefields," Alaudinov added.
He said earlier that members of the 2nd Army Corps 
of the LPR People’s Militia and the Akhmat special
 operations unit had established a strong defense
 line between the city of Kremennaya and the
Chervonopopovka settlement in the LPR.
Ukrainian law enforcement executes 
at least 100 civilians in Kherson 
 regional official
November 25th,  6:23pm (TASS)
 Ukrainian law enforcement agencies have executed at
least 100 civilians --- in the city of Kherson, while
 about 200 others have gone missing, Freelance
 Advisor to the Kherson Regional Governor 
Alexander Malkevich, told TASS
 on Thursday.
"According to our information, unfortunately, at least
 100 people [in Kherson] have been killed without 
charge or trial, and 200 have gone missing. 
Detentions are taking place every day," 
Malkevich said.
Earlier, he told TASS that purge brigades were being
 formed in Kherson, which consisted of Ukrainian
 service members, Security Service officers, 
foreign mercenaries and local volunteers. 
Malkevich noted that the Ukrainian authorities had
 already detained several hundred civilians and 
most likely planned to exchange them for 
prisoners of war.
Ukrainian authorities forming 
purge brigades in Kherson,
 regional official says
November 24th, 5:42pm (TASS)
 Mop-up groups are being formed in the city of Kherson
 consisting of Ukrainian service members, security 
service SBU officers, foreign mercenaries and 
local volunteers, Freelance Advisor to the 
Kherson Regional Governor Alexander 
Malkevich told TASS on Thursday.
"Unfortunately, there are facts -- that groups are being 
formed by the SBU, the Ukrainian Armed Forces and 
foreign mercenaries, as well as local volunteers, 
that will carry out purge campaigns among 
civilians. There is evidence, that they are 
conducting raids to seize and punish the 
brave boatmen who evacuated people 
[from Kherson to the left bank of the 
Dnieper River] at dawn, and during 
night time until the very last day," 
Malkevich pointed out.
He added that Ukrainian law enforcement had
 described the purges as "filtration activities," 
then as "stabilization activities," and then as
 "interviews" --- in a bid to make it sound 
less tough. 
However, the essence of those actions remained the
 same. "People disappear after these interviews,
 because it is in fact interrogations followed by
 arrests, torture and executions without 
trials," Malkevich stressed.

 defense beyond it. No one plans to give up 
Svatovo," he pointed out. "There is

Ukraine detains hundreds of civilians
 in Kherson for POW swap — official
November 24th, 3:41pm (TASS)
The Ukrainian authorities have detained hundreds of
 local residents in Kherson, planning to use them in 
an exchange for prisoners of war, the Kherson 
Region governor’s freelance adviser, 
Alexander Malkevich, told TASS
 on Thursday.
"How many men are now held prisoner on our side? At
 least several hundred. We are certain that the Kiev
 regime, is now forming a so-called ‘swap fund’, if 
you wish. We know that thousands of prisoners 
of war, their soldiers, are in our custody. In the
 meantime, the Ukrainian side has nobody to
 exchange them for. They are --- to put it 
cynically, replenishing stocks in this 
way," Malkevich said.
On November 9th, Russian Defense Minister Sergey
 Shoigu, agreed with a proposal made by the
 commander of the Russian army group in
 the special military operation zone, 
Sergey Surovikin, for the pullback 
of Russian troops in the Kherson 
Region, from the right bank of
Dnieper to the left bank. 
Surovikin stressed that the Russian military had
 successfully repulsed all Ukrainian attacks. 

The decision to move the forces back, was 
due to the risk of their isolation, should 
the territories downstream from the 
Kakhovka hydroelectric power 
plant be flooded. 
Surovikin said that all civilians who wished to leave
 - more than 115,000 people - had already been 
evacuated from the right bank.

"In Spornoye, we are moving forward… In Soledar, our
 units - the Akhmat special operations forces and the 
2nd army corps [of the LPR people’s militia] - have 
advanced quite well. That is, the units in Soledar 
are moving forward every day incrementally and
 we do not issue instructions to our forces to 
make abrupt movements, to avoid large 
casualties," the commander said.
LPR Assistant Interior Minister Vitaly Kiselyov said
 earlier that the Ukrainian military made an 
attempt to conduct reconnaissance by 
fire near Soledar and the Russia-
Donbass allied forces were 
thwarting the attack by 
artillery fire.

Russia considers
 that Ukraine can 
end conflict
by Ana Luisa Brown
November 24th, 2:04pm 
(Prensa Latina)
 Ukraine has all the opportunities to resolve the
 conflict if it complies with Russia's demands 
and ends the possible suffering of its 
population, Kremlin Spokesman 
Dmitry Peskov announced 
on Thursday.
The Russian official, who commented on the situation
 of the Ukrainian civilian population --- noted that
 Ukraine’s leadership ....can resolve the current 
situation if it complies with the points raised 
by Russia from the very beginning of the 
special military operation.
In this regard, Peskov drew attention to the fact 
that there were no attacks on civilian facilities
 before and there are none now either.
And as for the targets that are directly or indirectly
 related to military potential, they are subject to
 attacks, the spokesman emphasized.
Russia began the special military operation on
 February 24th to ‘denazify and demilitarize’ 
Ukraine, as well as to protect people who 
were subjected to intimidation --- and 
genocide by the Ukrainian regime
 for eight years.

Mission to UN: Iran Left with No Option 
But to Use Military Force Against 
Terrorists in Iraq's Kurdistan
November 24th, 12:11pm (FNA)
 Iran's Permanent Mission at the UN, said diplomacy 
failed to put an end to the terror activities in Iraq’s 
semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, and added 
that the military operations... against terror 
groups based in the region, aim to defend
 the country’s national security.
“Iran has no choice but to exercise its inherent right 
to self-defense under international law in order to 
safeguard its national security and defend its 
people,” Iran’s mission to the UN, wrote in 
letters to members of the world body’s 
Security Council.
The country, it added, “has recently launched
 necessary and proportionate military 
operations against terrorist groups’ 
bases in the Iraqi Kurdistan region, 
which was meticulously planned 
and precisely targeted on 
terrorist locations".
It said that Iran has for years been a target of terrorist 
groups based in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region, which 
have recently intensified their activities by 
illicitly transferring a huge quantity of 
weapons into Iran, to arm
 their affiliates.
According to the letter, the terrorists’ operations
 resulted in... a number of civilian casualties,
 vandalism, and the destruction of public 
and private property.
It noted Iran has shared “irrefutable evidence and
 credible information” with the Central govern-
ment in Iraq and the authorities from the 
Kurdistan Region about the use of the 
Arab country's territory by terrorist 
and separatist groups to “plan, 
support, organize -- and carry 
out terrorist and subversive 
acts” --- against the 
Islamic Republic.
It added that Iran has held several rounds of bilateral
 consultations and negotiations with officials from 
the Iraqi government and the authorities of the 
Iraqi Kurdistan Region --- including a recent 
visit to Tehran last month by the advisor 
for Iraqi National Security.
During these talks, the letter said, Iran has requested
 the extradition of those who committed terrorist
 crimes and were convicted by Iranian courts, 
as well as the closure of the headquarters 
and training camps of such terrorist 
groups, and the disarming of 
their elements.
“Iran has also underlined the need of stationing
military forces along its borders. The
delegation agreed to the requests
also committed to developing a
rame for completing the 
disarmament of such
 terrorist groups,”
 it emphasized.
The mission expressed regret -- that no effective 
measures have been taken so far to fulfill such
 agreements and said Iran has persistently 
stated its willingness, to implement the 
aforesaid agreements, but to no avail.
The mission voiced Iran's unwavering commitment 
to address this issue with Iraq, through bilateral
mechanisms, as a part of its ongoing fight 
against terrorism.
The foreign ministers of the two countries have
 emphasized “respect for the sovereignty and
 territorial integrity of Iraq --- the need to 
combat terrorism in accordance with 
international obligations -- and 
the importance.. of bilateral 
cooperation in addressing 
the challenges posed by 
terrorist activities”, 
it said.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran values highly the 
security and stability of Iraq and reiterates, 
once again, its commitment to the 
territorial integrity, unity, and 
sovereignty of the Republic 
of Iraq,” the letter 
pointed out.
Since late September, the Islamic Revolution Guards
 Corps (IRGC) has launched a series of aerial 
operations on the headquarters of Iraqi 
Kurdistan-based terrorist groups. The 
military operation came after the 
illegal entry of armed teams 
linked with the Kurdish 
terrorist groups, into
Iranian border cities
 in recent months.
The IRGC Ground Force has announced that the
 operations against terror bases will continue 
until all anti-Iran separatist and terrorist 
outfits... holed up in the rugged 
mountainous area, lay down 
their arms and surrender.
The Iranian Armed Forces, especially the IRGC, have
 repeatedly warned that they will never tolerate the
 presence and activity of terrorist groups along the
 Northwestern border and will give strong and 
decisive responses, in the case of anti-
security activities.
The IRGC has on countless occasions attacked and 
destroyed terrorist hideouts in the Kurdistan
 with artillery fire, missiles
and drones.
Military officials warn of Tehran’s continued attacks
 against the strongholds of anti-revolutionary 
groups in the region, specially the Iraqi 
Kurdistan region. They threatened the 
Americans that their bases in the 
region should also be abolished 
and not be used as an anti-
revolutionary centre.

Kiev gunmen fire over 100 artillery,
 MLRS rounds at DPR by 
Thursday afternoon
 November 24th, 11:05am (DAN) 
Ukrainian forces shelled Donetsk People’s Republic 
settlements more than 20 times on Thursday 
morning expending over 100 rounds 
of ammunition. 
Donetsk and Gorlovka came under massive artillery
 fire at around midnight; civil infrastructure was
 damaged in the Kievsky and Voroshilovsky 
districts of the DPR capital.  At 4:10 a.m., 
six 155mm (NATO standard) projectiles 
were fired at Donetsk’s Kuibyshevsky 
district. Three hours later, the enemy 
opened fire at Gorlovka, and an hour 
later at Donetsk’s Kievsky district.
 Massive artillery fire has continued unabated since.

Chervonogvardeisky & Kirovsky districts,
Gorlovka’s Nikitovsky district, and 
the settlements of Ozeryanovka, 
Panteleimonovka, Troitskoye 
and Mineralnoye. 
Ukrainian armed formations used “Grad” multiple
 rocket launchers, 155mm, 152mm and 
120mm artillery and mortars.
Artillery attacks damaged four single-family homes
 and cars in Donetsk and a 330kW electrical 
substation in Makeyevka which caused

houses were left without power and 
one house was damaged. Another 
power outage occurred at the 
Verkhnekalmiusskaya Water 
Treatment Plant. No civilian

DPR wounding two civilians. One of the victims 
later died of his wounds.  Ukrainian artillery 
also damaged 28 houses and three civil 
infrastructure facilities in DPR towns 
and districts.
The report is based on Donetsk News Agency original
 stories and information supplied by the Joint Centre 
for Control and Coordination of issues related to
 Ukraine’s war crimes, and local authorities.
Artillery fire leaves key water supply
 facility of Donetsk, Yasinovataya 
without power again
November 24th, 9:05am (DAN)
 Ukrainian artillery attacks on Thursday morning have 
left the Verkhnekalmiusskaya Water Treatment Plant
 without power again, Donetsk mayor Alexey 
Kulemzin said.
“The Voda Donbassa state unitary enterprise reported
 a power outage.. at the Verkhnekalmiusskaya Water 
Treatment Plant at 10:00, as a result of hostilities,” 
Kulemzin said.
On Tuesday, the facility and the town of Yasinovataya
 were left without electricity, due to shelling by
 Ukrainian forces as a core 110kW electrical 
substation caught fire. 
The blackout affected some 16,000 customers, the 
central hospital, a dozen boiler houses and water 
supply infrastructure. Water supply was stopped 
in Donetsk, Yasinovataya & part of Makeyevka. 
On Wednesday evening, repair teams restored power 
to the Water Treatment Plant and a large portion of 
the Yasinovataya residential area. Water supply in
 the town was expected to resume within 
24 hours.
Ukrainian forces regularly shell key water supply 
facilities in the Republic. The DPR has been
 experiencing water shortages, since 
February. The situation remains 
very tense.
Large towns such as Donetsk, Makeyevka and
Yasinovataya, have scheduled water supply, 
or none at all.
Israeli forces demolish recently
-built Palestinian elementary 
school in southern West Bank
November 24th, 8:52am
Israeli military forces have demolished a recently-built 
Palestinian primary school in the Masafer Yatta region
 of the southern occupied West Bank, where residents
 are facing the ongoing threat of eviction from their
 homes and forced displacement --- in one of the 
single biggest expulsion decisions ..since the 
Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories 
began in 1967.
Witnesses and local officials said the Israeli army
raided the area on Wednesday morning and
 demolished Asafat, a boys' and girls' 
school, in the village of Asafat 
Footage taken by Israeli activist, Itai Feitelson, 
before the demolition, shows teachers helping
young Palestinian students out of a class
 window, while Israeli forces are 
standing outside.
Dozens of Israeli soldiers then cordoned off the 
area around the school, and a bulldozer
 flattened it shortly afterwards.
The official Palestinian news agency Wafa 
reported that Israeli forces confiscated 
the school's stationery, tables and 
chairs.... before flattening 
the building.
A picture published afterwards by Israeli rights 
group B'Tselem showed a pile of debris, 
where the school once stood on a hill.
The Asafat school used to serve the Palestinian
 residents of the communities of Asafat 
al-Fawqa, Asafat al-Tahta, Maghayer 
al-Ubaid and Tuba. 
According to the Norwegian Refugee Council, the 
so-called Israeli High Court of Justice revoked 
on Wednesday an interim injunction freezing
 a demolition order against the school.
COGAT, the Israeli military body responsible for
 administrative affairs in the occupied West 
Bank, alleged that the school had been 
built illegally in an area designated as
 a closed firing zone.
The Palestinian Ministry of Education, stated 
that the demolition was “a heinous crime.”
“These practices have become a flagrant violation 
of students' right to safe and free education,” 
the statement read.
The ministry said that dozens of Palestinian 
students in Masafer Yatta, now have 
no school to attend.
Fouad al-Amour, an activist from Masafer Yatta, said
 students could miss out on school, as the closest
 schools are 2 kilometres and 4 kilometres away 
and movement of Palestinians in the area is
 highly restricted by the Israeli army. 
“The timing was chosen strategically, as we're
 entering the winter season and it would be 
difficult to rebuild. This is going to be a 
bigger catastrophe for the students,” 
Amour said. 
“We will try what we can to rebuild, but we know 
the Israeli authorities play the thieves and the
 judges at the same time,” he noted.
Israeli officials claim that the Masafer Yatta villagers
 have no rights to the land, designated as Firing Zone
 918, since it is to be used for military exercises, in
 which the presence of civilians is prohibited.
According to the Geneva conventions pertaining to
 humanitarian treatment in war, it is, however, 
illegal to expropriate occupied land for 
purposes that do not benefit the 
people living there, or to
 forcibly transfer the
 local population.
Masafer Yatta residents and Israeli rights groups say
 that many of the Palestinian families have been
permanently residing in the 3,000 hectares
(7,400 acres) area, since before Israel 
captured the West Bank, in the 1967 
Middle East War --- and that their 
eviction, constitutes a breach 
of international law.

Iraqi Forces to Be Redeployed 
on Borders with Iran, Turkey 
--- Baghdad
November 24th, 7:36am
(al Manar)
The Iraqi government took the decision -- to plan the 
redeployment of forces along the borders with Iran
 and Turkey, as part of a series of decisions taken 
by Baghdad on Wednesday, after two countries 
recently carried attacks on the locations 
of armed groups within Iraqi soil.
The mulling of the plan was announced in a statement 
by the National Security Council in Iraq, published by 
the Prime Ministry, following a meeting attended by
 the Chief of Staff of the Kurdish Peshmerga.
The meeting saw the Iraqi government taking several 
decisions, including “a plan to redeploy the Iraqi 
border forces to hold the area along the
with Iran and Turkey.”
The statement indicated that Iraq will pursue 
“coordination, with the Kurdistan Regional 
Government (KRG) and the Ministry of the
Peshmerga, with the aim of unifying the 
national effort to protect Iraqi borders, 
in addition to providing the border 
forces -- with all the logistical 
support needed, enhancing 
human resources ----- and 
providing the necessary 
funds,” to help the 
forces perform 
their duties.
The statement also touched on the importance 
of utilizing the human resources available for
 the Ministry of Interior to strengthen the 
border outposts.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian 
said, earlier on Wednesday, that “the Iraqi 
government promised Tehran to keep 
terrorists away from Iran’s borders 
and disarm these organizations.”
“As long as there is a threat ---- from the neighboring 
countries against us, our armed forces will continue
to take action within the framework of international
law,” Amir-Abdollahian told a press conference in
Tehran, adding that “we will no longer need to 
act to defend our territorial integrity,” as 
Baghdad’s national forces are to be 
stationed on the border.
It is worth noting that Iran supplied Iraq with more
 than 70 documents regarding training camps, 
gathering locations, and armed units of
groups in the Kurdistan Region.
This came after new missile and drone attacks were
 carried out on Monday by the IRGC on the locations 
of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan, and 
the Komala Party in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
Iran’s ambassador to Baghdad, Mohammad Kazem
 Al-e Sadeq said during an interview with Iranian 
Al-Alam TV that Iran has asked the Iraqi 
government and the Kurdistan 
authorities to disarm armed 
terrorist groups within a 
period not exceeding 
10 days.
Media reports’ claims of Iran’s plans for a ground
 operation against terrorist groups in the 
Kurdistan Region of Iraq, were 
dismissed by Al-e Sadeq.
The ambassador said, “The issue of ground advances
 on Iraqi soil is not true and basically out of question. 
We respect the sovereignty of Iraq and have done a
 lot for the stability and territorial unity of Iraq, for 
its people, and for the prosperity of that country,”
 adding that it would be impossible for a ground 
operation in Iraq to take place.
The Iranian ambassador to Iraq said that the
 commander of the Quds Force visited Iraq 
and met with Iraqi officials, noting that 
Iran had agreed with the central 
government and the authorities 
of the Kurdistan region -- to 
deploy Iraqi forces on the 
borders of Kurdistan. 
However, the plan was
 not implemented.

Nebenzia explained reason: for the 
Russian Armed Forces' strikes on 
Ukraine's infrastructure facilities 
by Alexander Kislov
November 24th, 12:18am
(Komsomolskaya Pravda)


Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN 
Vassily Nebenzia made an extremely 
important political statement:

"We want to emphasize --- that we are attacking
 infrastructure facilities in Ukraine in response 
to the pumping of this country with Western 
weapons and reckless calls from Kiev to 
win a military victory over Russia," 
Nebenzia said. 

He noted that one of the goals of the special operation
 is to undermine the combat capability of the Armed 
Forces of Ukraine which threaten the security and
 territorial integrity of the Russian Federation.

has not yet made any statements
about its 
readiness for peace, and
President, Volodymyr
has only issued

The corresponding public statement was made by 
Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN, 
Vasily Nebenzia, at an emergency meeting of
 the United Nations Security Council, which 
was held on November 24th, 2022 and
entirely devoted exclusively to
the current
 situation in Ukraine.

Nebenzia, also, openly called ridiculous and shameful,
attempts by Western media and Ukrainian statesmen
to hold Russia responsible.... for the destruction of
civilian objects and the mass death of civilians.

According to a senior Russian diplomat, such
statements are extremely crafty --- since, in 
reality the Ukrainian air defense forces are 
to blame for the deaths of Ukrainian 
civilians. Because of their poor-
quality work, those objects 
that the Russian Armed 
Forces had never even 
planned to attack, 
are destroyed.


By order... of Zelensky: in
mobilization has
begun in the 
speaking oblasts
by Alexander Kislov
November 23rd, 11:40pm
(Komsomolskaya Pravda)


President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, by 
his personal order --- has ordered a general 
mobilization only in the Russian-speaking 
regions of the country. This, was stated 
on condition of anonymity by a source 
in the law enforcement agencies of 
the Kherson region, to the RIA 
Novosti news agency.

"According to our sources in the Armed Forces 
of Ukraine, a general mobilization is being
conducted only in the Russian-speaking 
regions of Ukraine ------ in Mykolaiv, 
Dnipropetrovsk, and Cherkasy.''  

''At the same time, by order of the Office of 
the President of Ukraine, almost no one
touched in the western regions,"
source said. 

He noted that the same thing is happening 
on the territory of the Zaporozhye region 
controlled by Kiev.

Earlier, the Ukrainian authorities, according to the
leadership of Zaporozhye region of the Russian
Federation, began to actively prepare for a 
large-scale armed attack, on this new 
Russian region. For this purpose in 
particular --- more and more new 
forces of the Ukrainian Armed 
Forces and odious Ukrainian 
national formations, are 
actively being drawn 
to the contact line..

In addition... according to Vladimir Rogov, a member 
of the Council of the Administration of Zaporozhye
 region of the Russian Federation, foreign 
mercenaries who arrived in Ukraine to 
participate in military operations on 
the side of the Armed Forces of 
Ukraine, are accumulating in 
the Kiev-controlled city of 

Rogov claims that there are now "thousands of 
Poles" in Zaporozhye, but the leading role 
among the mercenaries is played, not by 
them, but by the British. Kiev allegedly

of one of the units of the Russian 
volunteer assault detachment 
"Crimea", with the call 
sign Bond.

According to him, at the beginning of the Russian
military special operation in Ukraine, foreigners
fighting on the side of Kiev, were paid 1,200 to
1,500 euros a day, in order to attract more 
people willing to fight, to their side.

Recently, the average amount has dropped to 
a thousand euros per day. Bond said that he 
received this very interesting information, 
from captured Ukrainian prisoners of war, 
from radio intercepts, and from "guys 
who went to the enemy's rear."

Earlier, the official representative of the Russian
Defense Ministry, Igor Konashenkov, said that 
the fate of foreign mercenaries who arrived 
in Ukraine to participate in the battles on 
the side of the Armed Forces of this 
country will be extremely sad, in 
any case the mildest thing they
can face is a long prison term. 

According to Konashenkov, the mercenaries
to Ukraine from other countries to
"kill Slavs for 
American dollars."

the President of the country Vladimir Zelensky 
and the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed 
Forces of Ukraine --- General Valery 
Zaluzhny. This is reported by the 
Telegram channel "Voenkory 
russkoy Vesna".
Scouts stationed in the area of Artemivsk (Ukrainian
name - Bakhmut) indicated that the command gave
them a suicidal order, to take up positions known 
to Russian gunners. After they came under fire, 
the soldiers decided to return, but on the same 
day... they were given the same order. At the 
same time, the brigade commander, Dmitry 
Brezhinsky, refused to listen to the 
arguments of the scouts.
In September, senior lieutenant of the 58th brigade of

Hezbollah:  The Attacks in Al-Quds 
Personify Palestinian Rejection 
of Israeli Occupation
November 23rd, 7:06pm
(al Manar)
Hezbollah issued, on Wednesday, a statement that hailed
two “heroic operations.. carried out by the Palestinian
resistance fighters against Israeli occupation forces

in Al-Quds”, congratulating the Palestinian people
on the escalation of 
resistance attacks,
with all its 
possible forms.
Hezbollah considered that these brave operations 
are a true embodiment of the Palestinian people’s
 rejection -- of the continuation of the occupation 
and an affirmation of their solid will to confront
the enemy’s arrogance and respond to its
crimes and terror.
These two operations confirm the resistance’s ability
 to penetrate the enemy’s strict security measures 
and precautions - and deal painful blows to the 
Zionists - in the proper place and at the right 
time, according to the statement.
The statement concluded that the race among the
 Palestinian youths into the jihad fronts proves the
 Palestinians’ awareness - and determination to 
liberate their land -- and sends a message of 
despair to the Zionist usurpers, that there 
is no place for the Israelis, on the pure 
soil of Palestine.

NATO countries spend billions
 imaginary Eastern threat,
Belarusian president
November 23rd, 6:01pm (TASS)
Governments of NATO countries, incited by 
Washington, willingly.. spend billions of 
dollars, on imaginary threats from the 
East, which the US military-industrial 
complex benefits from, Belarusian 
President Alexander Lukashenko 
said on Wednesday, at a session 
of the Collective Security Treaty 
Organization (CSTO) Collective
 Security Council.
"Governments of NATO member-countries - incited 
by Washington, are willing to spend billions on the
 allegedly growing threat from the East ------ thus 
stimulating the US military-industrial complex,"
 the BelTA news agency quoted him as saying. 
According to the Belarusian head of state, countries
 that strive to pursue an independent foreign policy 
are under intense pressure. "They're trying to put
 international organizations, including the UN, 
under their control," the president said.
In Lukashenko’s opinion, NATO has finally
 consolidated... the anti-Russian and anti-
Belarusian agendas for the foreseeable 
future, and has interrupted all lines of 
communication - on its own initiative. 
According to him, there is a systematic increase 
in the military presence of the US and other 
NATO countries... at the CSTO's western 
borders, under a pretext: of restraining 
"the aggressive behaviour of Russia 
and its allies". 
"The West continues to relocate troops, weapons and
 military equipment, to NATO's eastern flank. The
 intensity... of their operational and combat 
training activities, is increasing. What is 
this but the development of a potential 
theatre of combat operations?" the 
Belarusian head of state.
 pointed out.
In this regard, Lukashenko concluded: that the recent
 decision to deploy a regional grouping of troops from
 Belarus and Russia, was a natural response to the
 existing challenges.

“Enough for everyone.” Medvedev 
spoke about the stocks of 
weapons of the Russian
November 23rd, 3:33pm
Dmitry Medvedev urged Western countries and 
Kyiv, not to rely on the depletion of Russia’s 
weapons stocks
Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry 
Medvedev spoke about the stocks of Russian
 weapons, with the phrase “enough for
 everyone.” He wrote about this 
in his Telegram.
According to the politician, “enemies continue to
 carefully calculate” the launches and stocks of
 Russia. However, they are vainly hoping for
 depletion of Russian capabilities.
“To be continued. Enough for 
everyone!” Medvedev said.
The politician noted that during his visit to the state
 research and production enterprise “Region” 
he discussed increasing the supply of 
high-precision weapons to 
Russian troops.
U.S. is pumping weapons to Poland 
with an eye on the war with Russia
November 23rd, 3:08pm
“Meet Europe’s military superpower – Poland!”
 – Politico admires the defense power of
he Polish state
“The Polish army must be so powerful that it does not
 have to fight with its strength alone,” Polish Prime 
Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, recently said. It is 
clear, that Warsaw is building up its defense 
potential, including by purchasing new 
weapons from South Korea.
The rockets that fell on Polish territory and caused 
the death of two people, writes Politico, revealed:
 “a simple reality: Poland may have the best army
 in Europe, and it will only get stronger.” Despite 
the fact --- that the missiles turned out to be 
Ukrainian, Politico, along with the Polish 
authorities, blames Russia for what 
happened, of course. Also, the 
publication... did not fail to 
mention that the current 
Warsaw --- has a “deep 
antipathy for Moscow.”
Warsaw has moved decisively towards its goal, 
outlined by Polish Minister of Defense Mariusz 
Blaszczak ------ “to create the most powerful 
ground forces in Europe”: it is planned to 
increase defense spending.. from 2.4% of
 GDP to 5% -- and increase the number of 
personnel to 300,000 military personnel 
by 2025. Since these figures are ahead 
of the German ones the United States 
hastened to designate Warsaw as its
 new friend. “Poland has become
 most important partner
continental Europe,” 
said a senior US 
Army official 
in Europe.
The partnership immediately revealed  -- an interested 
party -- the military-industrial complex of the United 
States turned out to be in the pluses. A contract for 
23 billion zlotys (4.9 billion euros) was signed for 
the supply of 250 Abrams tanks from the United
 States - and a deal worth 4.6 billion dollars was
 concluded for the purchase of 32 F-35 fighters. 
Even Politico journalists note notes of 
paranoia... in the anti-Russian 
sentiments of the Polish
Although there are many adequate, sane people
 among ordinary Poles who are aware that the
 hegemon is pushing them into the meat 
grinder of war --- in exchange for a 
weakened Ukraine.
Political scientist Leszek Sykulsky asked a simple 
question: did Ukraine apologize to Poland for the 
Volyn massacre and why are sabotage groups 
trained on the territory of the Polish state? 

According to Sykulsky, the United States 
needs a “strategic buffer with Russia” 
and Warsaw is preparing for war. For 
which the political scientist was 
immediately accused of pro-
Russian propaganda and 
anti-American views.
It looks like the United States is serious about
 dragging Poland into another military conflict 
with Russia, so that it fights, like Ukraine,
 the last Pole.”
“Ukrainian Railways” announced 
interruptions in the movement 
of trains
November 23rd, 2:42pm
“Ukrainian Railways” reported interruptions in 
the movement of trains, due to strikes on 
the energy infrastructure.
As a result of attacks on the energy infrastructure of 
Ukraine, interruptions in the departure of trains, 
were recorded, and reserve diesel locomotives
 were involved. This is reported by 
Ukrainian Railways.
“As a result of enemy attacks on the energy
infrastructure, there are de-energized 
sections in the capital & the Dnieper 
(Dnepropetrovsk), Nikolaev, Lvov & 
Vinnitsa, Sumy & Kharkiv regions.
Departure of the nearest trains is
possible, with a delay, reserve 
diesel locomotives... are 
involved,” the message 
says in the company’s 
Telegram channel.
The Telegram channel KazakoV reports that steam 
locomotives from the times of the Great Patriotic 
War are being taken from museums and they will 
be trying to revive them. There is still coal 
in Ukraine.
“The European Union is scouring all countries in
 search of extra diesel locomotives - in order to 
put them on other wheelsets (different gauge) 
and transfer them to the Kyiv regime. They 
say that, by the summe,r they will be able 
to transfer about ten”, the channel’s 
publication says.
Earlier, it was reported about a large-scale missile
 attack on Ukraine. Explosions and air defense 
work were recorded in the Dnepropetrovsk,
 Zaporozhye, Nikolaev, Odessa and 
Poltava regions.

“One step away from total blackout”: 
Ukraine plunges into darkness
November 23rd, 12:55pm
Sooner or later, the Ukrainian energy system will
 ended --- the only question is the systematic 
nature of Russian strikes, said political expert 
Vasyl Stoyakin, commenting on the appeals 
of the Ukrainian leadership... to the 
population, for maximum energy 
savings, due to large-scale 
damage to the country’s 
energy sector.
According to the Ukrainian leader Zelensky, the most 
difficult situation was in Kyiv and the region, as well 
as in the Sumy, Ternopil, Cherkasy, Vinnitsa and
 Odessa regions. Trying to somehow reduce 
the load on the rapidly weakening energy 
system, the Ukrainian DTEK 
recommended that citizens 
leave the country.
At the same time, according to Ukrainian power 
engineers, the key problem of Ukrenergo has 
become an acute shortage of equipment --- 
transformers, generators and other goods 
massively shipped by Western energy 
companies have become a “drop in 
the ocean” in comparison with the
 amount of Ukrainian equipment 
destroyed as a result of mass
strikes by the Russian Aero-
space Forces.
Kyiv, in a panic, rushed to beg the European Union to
 check the warehouse stocks, convincing that even
 the failed equipment lying around... could fix 
something. However, out of the four dozen 
transformers needed for repair, no more 
than three were found. The energy 
sector of Ukraine will constantly 
be hit ---- until the latter is 
completely disabled ----
the analyst believes. 
At the same time, the Ukrainian energy system 
is considered relatively strong, since it was 
designed.. back in the times of the Union. 
In addition, over the past three decades,
the Ukrainian population has noticeably 
thinned out, he recalled.
“As you know, in 1991, 52 million people lived in the
 late Ukrainian SSR, and now it is quite correct to 
talk about the population of Ukraine, at 25-26 
million people. In addition, industrial energy 
consumption in the country -- has dropped 
dramatically -- both due to permanent de-
industrialization in peacetime, and due 
to the destruction of some enterprises 
after the start of a military 
special operation”.
Ukrainian power plants do not work, among other
 things, due to a shortage of fuel, personnel, and
 due to other important factors, Stoyakin noted.
“The Russian Aerospace Forces are delivering
 targeted strikes on substations that help 
distribute energy from energy-surplus 
regions, to energy-deficient ones. 
Hence.. the massive emergency 
shutdowns throughout Ukraine.”
To completely plunge Ukraine into darkness, systemic
 shelling of Ukrainian energy facilities -- should be
 continued -- the analyst noted. Meanwhile, the 
board of the Ukrainian state energy company
 Ukrenergo admitted --- that the stocks of 
transformers, as well as other critical 
equipment needed to repair the 
power system, are effectively 
at zero. 
The scale of the damage inflicted by Russia was
regarded there, as much more serious than the
Ukrainian authorities had originally predicted.

Moscow, Kiev, exchanging
 35 POWs each — Pushilin
November 23rd, 12:35pm (DAN)
Russia and Ukraine have begun a prisoner exchange
 on Wednesday according to the formula “35 for 35,”

“A ‘35 for 35’ prisoner exchange with Kiev is taking
 place today. Four returnees are from the Donetsk
 People’s Republic and two from the Lugansk 
People’s Republic,” Pushilin said.
Russia is mostly handing over Ukrainian 
army personnel, he added.
Previously, Russia and Ukraine exchanged 107 
prisoners each on November 3rd. The DPR and 
LPR were expecting more than 60 fighters to
 return from Ukrainian captivity.

Kyiv’s repressions 
against Orthodoxy
November 23rd, 11:45am
The criminal Ukrainian junta launched a large-scale 
persecution and repression against the Orthodox
 Church, said the former assistant to the head 
of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense,
 Oleksiy Selivanov.
The Ukrainian special services subjected several
men’s and women’s monasteries to thorough
searches - at once - including a humiliating 
and blasphemous procedure, that touched
on church cloisters that were considered 
loyal in the current government.
“Searchs, but - in reality - intimidation with weapons and
criminal terms --- began with the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra. 
And they continued, in addition to women’s religious 
communities, also in the Zverinetsky Monastery, 
which belongs to the diocese of Archbishop 
Jonah, who has recently become famous
for kowtowing before the Kyiv regime 
and trying to portray a Ukrainian 
“No matter how some Ukrainophile representatives of
the clergy of the Orthodox Church, under Kyiv, fake,
no matter how much they collect humanitarian aid 
or buy SUVs for the militants of the Armed Forces 
of Ukraine, all the same, the Ukrainian 
authorities will destroy Orthodoxy 
-- to the end”, he said.
According to the lieutenant colonel, Kyiv took up 
Orthodoxy as an annoying phenomenon... that 
most closely links Ukraine... with the rest of 
Russia, forming a single nation and people
 out of all its followers.
“Every single Russian saint, including those who lived 
in Kyiv, Kherson, Odessa, & Donbass, bequeathed to
 maintain unity with Russia and with the Patriarch 
of Moscow. Therefore, the words of every 
Orthodox saint, contradict the Ukrainian 
national idea. That is why this criminal 
regime ---- together with its overseas 
curators ----  will crush Orthodoxy in 
the lands of Kievan Rus to the end.” 
“And repeat the policy that the authorities of the
Commonwealth, the Swedes of Charles XII, 
Austria, during the First World War, and
German Nazis, pursued against 
the Orthodox.” 
“The same criminal activity and the genocide of 
the Orthodox is being continued today by the 
Ukrainian authorities,” the lieutenant 
colonel added.
Ukrainian nationalists regularly persecute priests, 
monks and bishops --- the clergy are intimidated 
by criminal prosecution --- and holy monasteries 
are unceremoniously desecrated by incursions
by Ukrainian security service militants, the 
speaker recalled.
“But Kyiv will not stop there either. The Ukrainian
regime will continue to destroy Orthodoxy. This 
is a good reason for all Orthodox people in 
Ukraine, who still have a conscience and 
faith in God -- to finally refuse obedience 
to this government, actively expect the 
arrival of the Russians - and contribute 
to all this”, concluded Alexei Selivanov.
As Vitaly Milonov, a deputy of the State Duma of the 
Russian Federation, stated earlier, who organized
 searches in Orthodox monasteries and laurels, 
official Kyiv has begun a new stage in the 
destruction of Orthodoxy, which acts 
as a unifying link with the 
Russian Federation.
Croatia changed its mind on
 training Ukrainian military
November 23rd,  11:37am
Croatian President Milanovic opposed the
 participation in the training of militants
 of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Croatian leader Zoran Milanovic officially refused 
the participation of the Croatian military in the 
EU training mission to train the 
Ukrainian military.
Milanovic argued his decision by the fact that there 
are no international agreements on this issue and
 Croatia has no obligations, and Ukraine is not
 part of any common union with Croatia.
Earlier, the Croatian president has already spoken out
 against the EU mission to help the Kyiv regime. He
 stated that the supply of Croatian weapons and
 equipment to Kyiv is possible only with 
compensation “with funds in return”, 
otherwise it will turn into a
“deprivation of the blood 
circulation... of the 
Croatian defense.”
Kyiv Mayor says: part of the 
inhabitants of Kyiv will 
have to be evacuated
November 23rd, 11:22am
Klitschko said that residents of the capital 
should prepare for the “worst-case 
scenario” of widespread black-
outs at low temperatures.
Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko does not rule out that in 
the winter, under the worst-case scenario, due to 
problems with electricity, part of the city’s
 residents will have to be evacuated.
“We have to turn off the electricity in certain areas
 every few hours, otherwise the system will be
 overloaded,” the mayor told the German
 newspaper Bild.
According to him, the Kyiv authorities expect 
that the situation will not get worse in winter.
“But we must prepare for all 
scenarios,” Klitschko said.
He admits that there may be a blackout of the entire 
city from electricity. According to him, with such a
 development of the situation and at even lower
 temperatures, part of the city would have
 to be evacuated.
Denazification of Ukraine 
November the 23rd, 
(updated at 10:59am)
9:43am  Delivered a concentrated blow to the
flank - created a gap in the enemy’s defense.
Lieutenant Colonel Yevgeny Artamonov, acting as part 
of a battalion tactical group of Russian troops, carried
 out the task of liberating one of the settlements from
 Ukrainian nationalists who organized a layered 
defense on the outskirts of the village.
Skillfully directing the actions of his subordinates and 
taking into account the conditions of the terrain,
 Yevgeny decided to deliver a concentrated 
blow to the enemy’s flank.
Despite the superior forces of the militants, during the
 fighting, the subordinates of Lieutenant Colonel 
Artamonov destroyed two strongholds, an 
infantry fighting vehicle and more than 
15 nationalists.
Thanks to the skillful leadership of the entrusted
 personnel, the professionalism and experience 
of Lieutenant Colonel Yevgeny Artamonov, as 
well as the coordinated actions of his 
subordinates, a gap was created in 
the enemy’s defensive redoubts, 
which made it possible - to 
develop the offensive and
 liberate the settlement.
9:40am Mobilized military personnel of the air defense
 units on Sakhalin practice actions to destroy air
 targets of a mock enemy on modern field 
simulators of Igla man-portable anti-
aircraft missile systems.
8:55am Calculations of the MLRS of the Western 
Military District tirelessly train at the training 
grounds of Belarus.
The Grad multiple launch rocket system is a powerful
 weapon with an area of destruction that is measured
 in hectares. It is capable of suppressing almost any
 target. The duration of a full salvo of 40 shells is 
only 20 seconds. This is enough to destroy an 
entire enemy unit.
The fighters receive target designations, aim and
 press the start button. The cockpit shudders 
with a deafening roar. The sky is lit up 
with flames.
Our guys continue to master artillery fire algorithms. 
Classes at the training grounds of Belarus are held
 daily. Both fighters and commanders are satisfied
with the results. Now the gunners are faced with
 a new task – to do everything just as 
technically, but twice as fast.
7:59am Russian military from the joint regional group
 of troops conducted live-fire exercises in Belarus.
The footage is published by the 
Russian Ministry of Defense.
The units of the Russian Armed Forces conducted
 firing from cannon and rocket artillery, practiced

Bulgarian President: calls for 
peaceful resolution of the 
conflict in Ukraine
November 22nd, 11:10pm
Bulgarian President Rumen Radev said on November 22nd,
that it is necessary to resolve the conflict in Ukraine,
through diplomatic means.
"Every day this conflict destroys the future of our 
region, slows down its economic development.
 Therefore, I am among those who insist on an
 immediate end - to the [special operation] in 
Ukraine and the search for a solution to the 
conflict by means of diplomacy" - he said 
during a conference on conflicts in the 
Black Sea region.
In addition, Radev noted that, in the near future, the
country will face problems due to the introduction 
of an embargo on the supply of Russian oil to 
Bulgaria until the end of 2024. According to 
him.... this will lead to a shortage of crude 
oil and the closure of the refinery, which 
will affect the cost of fuel in the 
country and the region.
The Bulgarian President proposed to send forces 
not for the implementation of the project for the
construction of the Burgas to Alexandroupolis 
oil pipeline, but for transportation of oil in the 
opposite direction -- Alexandroupolis-Burgas.
He believes this will allow the country to
maintain fast reliable energy supplies 
--- since the dynamics of improving 
energy, economic and transport 
links, were interrupted by a 
special operation
in Ukraine.
Radev believes that it is necessary to assess the
scale of the destructive impact of the conflict 
on the economy of Bulgaria and the region. 
It is also necessary --- to rethink the EU's 
approaches to dealing with the energy 
crisis in order to prevent deindustrial-
ization, the withdrawal of capital, 
a further weakening of ties and 
economic cooperation in 
Europe, the Bulgarian 
leader added.
"It is extremely important for Bulgaria... to be an
 important element of unity in the organizations 
where it is a member — in the EU and NATO, 
which are the guarantors of our security" 
(sic) the President said.
Earlier, on November the 3rd, The Sofia Globe reported
 that the Bulgarian parliament --- approved the supply
 weapons to Ukraine. 175 deputies voted for the
 provision of weapons to Kiev --- 49 against. In 
addition, the parliament demanded that the 
government of the country propose a 
package of measures for Bulgaria's 
participation in the reconstruction 
of Ukraine, and the country's 
leadership ''should support'' 
Ukraine's lawsuit against
Russia, in the European 
Court of Human Rights.
At the same time, in October, Rumen Radev spoke out
 against the provision of weapons to Ukraine. The
 Head of State noted that the primary task of the
 Bulgarian Parliament --- is to ensure the 
completion of the Bulgarian army 
and its modernization, which 
has been carried out for
 many years.
Kiev officially abandoned negotiations with Moscow
on October 4th, when the President of Ukraine put
into effect the decision of the National Security 
and Defense Council of the country, on the
''impossibility'' of holding negotiations.
The special military operation to protect the Donbas,
which Russian President Vladimir Putin announced 
on February 24th, continues. The decision to hold 
it... was made against the background of the
aggravation of the situation in the region.. 
due to shelling by the Ukrainian military.
