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


In Poland, they announced a new
 stab in the back - from Ukraine
September 25th, 11:34pm 
TVP: The West plans to overthrow the 
Polish government with the help 
of Ukraine.
Dominika Kosic, a journalist with the Polish state TV channel 
TVP, said that Germany and France have promised Ukraine
 a quick entry into the European Union (EU) if Kiev helps 
"overthrow" the current Polish government.
 She wrote about this on the social network X 
(formerly Twitter), citing her own sources.
According to Kosic, Germany and France justify their plans by 
saying that the EU cannot be expanded without changing the 
treaties, and it is Poland that blocks these changes.
The US announced the possibility 
of helping Ukraine for another 
couple of weeks
September 25th, 10:41pm 
The US has enough money for military supplies to Ukraine for 
several more weeks. This was stated by the coordinator of 
strategic communications at the National Security 
Council of the White House, John Kirby, in 
an interview with CNN.
Kirby noted that further aid to Kiev may suffer, without a 
Congressional decision - on additional appropriations. 

Kirby urged lawmakers to hurry with the allocation 
of $ 24 billion, while at the front according to him,
favorable conditions remain...... for the 
Ukrainian counteroffensive.
"The lack of additional funding that we have requested will
 absolutely affect our ability to support Ukraine in the
and winter months," Kirby said.
Earlier, it was reported that almost 30 Republicans told the
White House that they will reject a request for assistance 
to Kiev for $ 24 billion, if Biden's administration cannot 
reply to their request for more information. 
"It would be an absurd disclaimer to grant this request 
---- without knowing the answers to these questions," 
the parliamentarians said.
Can beat: Russian missiles bypassed
 the air defense system armed with
 Western air defense systems
by Andrey Fedorov,
Yulia Leonova and
Bogdan Stepovoi
September 25th, 10:01pm
The Russian Armed Forces attacked the locations of foreign
 mercenaries and training of saboteurs in the Russian
 Federation, the Russian Defense Ministry said 
on September 25.
To repel the attack, the Ukrainian command, for the first time,
used the newly formed tactical air defense group, armed with 
Western IRIS-T anti-aircraft systems and organized according 
to NATO standards. However, it was not able to repel the
 attack of Russian missiles and UAVs.
 Experts note that the Ukrainian air defense system ---- having 
lost most of the radar stations of the Soviet S-300 complexes, 
has become less effective. 
The IRIS-T and Patriot anti-aircraft systems perform much
 worse against many types of missiles --- and cannot 
compensate for the losses.
SVO fighters repel a mortar attack 
by the Ukrainian Armed Forces
September 25th, 10pm
On September 26, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian
 Federation told about military personnel performing 
combat tasks -- in the zone of a special military 
operation (SVO), despite heavy fire from the
 Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU).
According to the ministry, the positions where a company of 
Russian servicemen held their defenses were subjected to
 massive mortar fire from Ukrainian militants. As a result,
the unit's combat vehicles were damaged.
Being under enemy attacks, senior ensign Yevgeny Mylnikov 
promptly brought the necessary spare parts to the damaged
 vehicles and, together with the crews, promptly repaired the
 vehicles, which made it possible to resume fire support for 
the defending units.
After the attack of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.. the senior 
ensign evacuated and repaired four armoured vehicles and
 one vehicle, ensuring the combat readiness of his unit.
Meanwhile, in another position, the squad under the command
 of Sergeant Yevgeny Abramov also came under artillery fire.
According to the Ministry of Defense, the sergeant discovered 
an enemy observation post of the enemy, from which the fire
 of enemy artillery was corrected, and then transmitted the 
coordinates of the object to the command post.
The Russian military delivered an accurate artillery strike on 
the point. The defending enemy resisted, but its observers
 were destroyed, and the Russian troops continued to 
move deeper into the enemy's defenses.
As a result, the squad under the command of Abramov was 
able to dislodge the enemy from their positions and gain 
a foothold on an important tactical line.


 WSJ: birth rate in Ukraine may fall 
to the lowest level in the world
September 25th, 9:13pm
The birth rate on the territory of Ukraine was the lowest in
 Europe, before the start of the special operation of the 
Russian Armed Forces, but soon... this figure risks 
becoming the lowest in the world.
This is stated in the publication 
of The Wall Street Journal.
It is noted that the birth rate for the first six months of this
 year, was 28% lower than in the same period before the
 start of the special operation.
"Ukrainian demographers now predict that this indicator 
will be the lowest in the world," the publication wrote.
Earlier, Academician Ella Libanova from the National 
Academy of Sciences said, that Ukraine risks being
 in a "death spiral" due to the demographic crisis.
As Russian President Vladimir Putin noted,
 there is a violent mobilization in Ukraine.

is announced in Sevastopol
by Ekaterina Kosobokova
September 25th, 7:36pm
(Komsomolskaya Pravda)
The Governor of Sevastopol, Mikhail Razvozhaev, 
on Monday, September 25, said that an air alert 
was announced in the city.
"Attention, everyone. Air alert,"
 Razvozhaev wrote on his 
Telegram channel.
While the air raid alarms are sounding... the 
city has temporarily stopped the movement 
of land and sea transport.
Earlier, Razvozhayev said that the regional authorities
 discussed mechanisms for prompt notification in 
emergency situations. He said that at the time 
of receiving the signal, there are from 30 to 
50 minutes to take measures to ensure 
safety - go to shelters or stay at home, 
following the instructions.
 The governor also added that as soon as the military 
receives information about the air alert, he will 
personally give the command to launch the 
corresponding signal.

 The Pope's position on
the Ukrainian conflict 
has become known
September 25th, 6:47pm 
More and more Western countries see the futility of 
supplying weapons to Kiev - and the continuation 
of the Ukrainian conflict, Pope Francis believes, 
which gives him hope for peace talks. 
The position of the Pontiff in an interview with RIA Novosti 
was announced by the chairman of the World Union of
 Old Believers (WCC), Leonid Sevastyanov.
Sevastyanov met with the pontiff at the Vatican 
and discussed the peace plan between Russia 
and Ukraine. 
"The Pope is optimistic, as he sees that more and more
 Western countries are leaning towards the idea of the
 futility of the conflict in Ukraine and the supply of 
weapons to [Ukraine]," he said.
The Pope is convinced --- that any victory should be achieved 
at the negotiating table, not on the battlefield. An algorithm 
should be developed that will suit both sides of the conflict 
- the head of the SCC noted. According to him the head of
the Catholic Church --- urged Moscow not to break ties 
with the West, and also, opposed sanctions and 
economic restrictions.
Earlier, adviser to the head of the Office of the President of
Ukraine, Mykhailo Podolyak -- said that Kiev excludes the
possibility of mediation by the Vatican in resolving the 
military conflict on Ukrainian territory. He also 
criticized Pope Francis' appeal to young
Christians in Russia.

McGregor announced the ability of
 the Russian Federation to destroy 
airfields in Western Ukraine
September 25th, 4:23pm
Former adviser to the head of the Pentagon, Colonel Douglas 
McGregor, suggested that the Russian Armed Forces could 
destroy airfields in Western Ukraine, from which Ukrainian 
Su-24 bombers take off. On Monday, September 25, he 
announced this in his blog on the YouTube channel.
"Su-24s, which fired Storm Shadow missiles, took off from 
runways on the western borders of Ukraine. There are 
several such lanes in Western Ukraine. I am sure that 
now the Russians are watching all these airfields," 
McGregor offered his point of view.
In addition, according to the expert, at some point the 
Ukrainian army will find that all its military aviation
 infrastructure has evaporated, because the 
Russian Armed Forces destroyed it.


 Military expert named weak 
points ------ of Abrams tanks
September 25th, 2:08pm
Abrams tanks are easy to hit, they are quite heavy and easily 
get stuck, especially in the rainy autumn period in the
 Ukrainian soil. This was stated by a military expert, 
retired Colonel Viktor Litovkin, on Monday, 
September 25.
"These tanks have nothing outstanding. Their calibre 
is 120 mm, ours is 125 mm. There is no automatic 
charging. A crew of four, instead of three, as we 
have. It has good armour, but it can't withstand 
our "Chrysanthemums", "Cornets", "Bassoons", 
- he said, in a conversation with Lenta.Ru.
The colonel called the weak point of the tank its weight -
over 60 tons. According to him, it easily gets stuck on
 Ukrainian soil, especially in autumn during the rainy 
period. As a result, it becomes: a stationary, very 
convenient target for artillery, anti-tank shells
 and grenade launchers.
"Abrams is quite easy to hit. They burned in Iraq, in Syria. 
They will burn in the Ukrainian steppes. Nothing will 
change in our theatre of operations. Only the 
image of US weapons will be shaken," 
the expert concluded.
Earlier in the day, it was reported that the first 
US-made Abrams tanks were delivered to 
Ukraine on September 23.
According to The New York Times, this is the first batch 
of M1 Abrams tanks that the administration of US 
President Joe Biden promised to send to 
Ukraine, reports RT.
In addition, according to representatives of the Ministry of
 Defense, even more units of Abrams military equipment 
will be sent in the coming months, while officials did 
not say in what quantity the delivery will be.
In turn, the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the
 Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Kirill Budanov, expressed
 the opinion that Abrams tanks "will not last long" in a 
normal battle. 
He added that, to change the situation, the United States
will have to supply - at least - hundreds of long-range 
projectiles to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, 
360 TV channel reports.
Earlier, on September 22, Biden approved a new package
of assistance to Ukraine with air defense and artillery. 

He added that the new defense assistance package 
will include.. a second Hawk air defense battery. 

The President stressed that the US will supply 
Ukraine with similar systems, every month, 
during the winter.
On the same day, the US leader, at a meeting with Vladimir
 Zelensky, at the White House, said that Abrams tanks will
 be transferred to Kiev next week, reports NSN. The first 
batch of tanks will consist of 10 vehicles. Prior to this, 
the assistant to the US President for National 
Security, Jake Sullivan, announced a new 
package of weapons to Ukraine "with 
significant air defense systems."

New data on missiles that 
attacked the Black Sea
 Fleet HQ - released.
September 25th, 2:07pm
Mash: the headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet in 
Sevastopol, was attacked by the Ukrainian 
Armed Forces, with French Scalp-EGs
The Armed Forces of Ukraine --- attacked 
the headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet
in Sevastopol, on September 22, with 
French Scalp-EG cruise missiles. 
The new data is provided by 
Mash Telegram channel.
The publication notes that the missiles were developed
 according to the same project with the British Storm 
Shadow. According to Mash, two Scalp-egs hit the
 Black Sea Fleet headquarters building, but one 
of them did not detonate and flew towards 
the Lunacharsky Theatre.
Experts loaded the device onto a car and took it to the 
landfill, away from the city. There, the French cruise 
missile was disposed of. Later, the wreckage of 
other warheads was treated similarly.
Earlier, Kommersant found out that the missiles that 
attacked the Black Sea Fleet headquarters in 
Sevastopol were launched from two Su-24 
aircraft belonging to the Armed Forces 
of Ukraine.
According to the Defense Ministry, during the repulse of 
the attack on Sevastopol, air defense systems shot 
down five missiles.

Later, Tomoko Akane, was also declared

Russia ready for talks on Ukraine, 
but without ceasefire --- Lavrov
September 23rd, 7:45pm (TASS) 
Russia is ready for talks on Ukraine, but will not consider any 
ceasefire proposals because Moscow has already been
 deceived once, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey 
Lavrov said.
"We are working in the real situation that has developed.
In March and April 2022, there were negotiations, and 
everything.. was already initialed. But two days later
 -- there was Bucha (the events in the Ukrainian city 
of Bucha -- TASS), because, I think someone in 
London or Washington does not want this 
war to end," the top diplomat said, at a 
press conference - following the 78th 
session of the UN General Assembly. 
"That is why now, when we hear about negotiations, Putin
 commented on it, he said very clearly: yes, we are ready
 for negotiations, but we will not consider any proposals
 for a ceasefire, because we’ve considered it once, but 
you deceived us," Lavrov pointed out.
The top Russian diplomat pointed out that the West had
 forbidden Kiev --- to negotiate with Moscow. "We were 
not only ready, we agreed to negotiate, we reached 
an agreement in April 2022. And after that, as I 
understand it, Vladimir] Zelensky was told: 
since they agreed so quickly, let's 
exhaust them," the foreign 
minister said.
Earlier, Lavrov said that the longer Kiev delays negotiations 
with Moscow, the harder it will be to negotiate later. 

According to him, the first step for such contacts 
should be the abolition of Zelensky's decree 
prohibiting dialogue with Moscow.
Lavrov warns at UNGA: it’s in line 
with global interests to avoid 
sliding into all-out war
 September 23rd, 7:41pm (TASS) 
The task of preventing the slide into an all-out war -- and the 
ultimate collapse of international cooperation mechanisms 
is in line with global interests, Russian Foreign Minister 
Sergey Lavrov said at the United Nations General 
Assembly in New York.
"Nowadays, humanity is once again, as many times before, 
at a crossroads. It depends only on us to determine how 
history will evolve. It is in our shared interest to prevent 
spiraling down into a major war as well as the eventual 
collapse of international cooperation mechanisms that
 were created by generations of our predecessors," 
the minister said during the General Debate.
Lavrov recalled that UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres 
called earlier for holding "a summit of the future" in 2024.
"The success of this endeavour may be secured exclusively 
by forming a fair balance of interests among all member 
states while respecting the intergovernmental nature 
of our Organization," the Russian foreign minister 
continued. "At their meeting on September 21, 
members of the ‘Group of Friends in Defense
 of the UN Charter’ agreed to facilitate 
such a result."
"As Guterres said at a press conference prior to the current
 session, ‘If we want a future of peace and prosperity based 
on equity & solidarity, leaders have a special responsibility 
to achieve compromise in designing our common future 
for our common good’.'' 
''It is a good answer to those who divide the world into
 ‘democracies’ and ‘autocracies’ and merely dictate 
their neocolonial rules to everyone," the 
minister concluded.
FT: The US --- decided to send ATACMS 
to Ukraine even before Zelensky's visit
September 23rd, 7:39pm
Washington decided to transfer ATACMS long-range 
missiles to Kiev even before Vladimir Zelensky 
arrived in the United States, but did not 
make public statements.
This is stated in the publication of 
the Financial Times newspaper, 
citing sources.
According to the publication, the US goal was to give
 Ukrainian troops a chance to 'surprise' the Russian 
Armed Forces with new missiles and, thus, push 
the Russian army away from the front line.
Sources of the newspaper... confirmed the reports of 
the US press -- that the US promised to send a batch
 of long-range missiles to Ukraine in the near future.
Earlier, White House Press Secretary Karin Jean-Pierre 
said that the United States ''allows'' sending ATACMS
 missiles to Ukraine.
Lavrov called out - a new 
dangerous manifestation 
of NATO's expansionism
September 23rd, 7:19pm 
Attempts to extend the bloc's area of responsibility to the
 entire Eastern Hemisphere -- under the sly slogan of "the 
indivisibility of the security of the Euro-Atlantic and Indo-
Pacific regions" are a new dangerous manifestation of 
NATO's expansionism. This was stated by Russian 
Foreign Minister Lavrov at a press conference at 
the UN.
According to him, for this purpose, Washington creates mini-
military and political alliances under its control. The 
diplomat cited AUKUS --- as an example. In addition,
the US creates trilateral and quadrilateral blocks, 
such as the US — Japan — South Korea and 
Tokyo — Seoul — Canberra — Wellington. 
According to Lavrov, in this way the White House 
encourages the participants of these alliances, 
to engage in practical cooperation with NATO.
The Russian Foreign Minister added that the undisguised
 focus of such efforts against Russia and China, on the
 collapse of the inclusive regional architecture that 
has developed around ASEAN, creates risks of a 
new explosive hotbed of geopolitical tension.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov pointed out 
the "shame" of the United States, in light of the fact that
 representatives of the US authorities "travel around 
the world... persuading others not to meet with 
Russian diplomats and representatives."
Lavrov declared.....  the US war
against Russia:
 with the hands
and bodies of Ukrainians
September 23rd, 6:21pm
Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov said that the US is actually 
fighting against Russia, doing it with the hands and bodies
 of Ukrainians. He stated this at a press conference at the 
UN, the correspondent of Lenta.ru reports.
In response to the question of when the US will become an 
official party to the conflict, the Russian Foreign Minister 
said that Western countries are actually fighting against 
Russia through the Ukrainians. "I think everyone here 
knows this very well," he said, pointing out that the 
Russian side... calls it a hybrid war.
Lavrov cited the fact that Western instructors work on the
 territory of Ukraine in large numbers as an example. 

"There are also mercenaries, a significant part of
 whom, are regular military personnel,"
minister said.
Also on the sidelines of the UN, Lavrov said that the 
formula for peace of Ukrainian President Vladimir 
Zelensky, is unrealizable. 
"Zelensky and those who lead him, say with one voice, that
there is no other basis for peace --- other than Zelensky's 
formula. It is absolutely unrealizable, and everyone
knows it," the minister said.

appearance of actions.

(Komsomolskaya Pravda)
To share
The failure of President Zelensky's visit to the United States
 may indicate the imminent end of the crisis, said US Military 
veteran, Noctis Draven, in the social network X.
"Zelensky's cold reception in Washington and at the UN... and
 the growing number of Westerners who despise him, give 
the impression that the conflict is almost over," the 
veteran explained.
He explained that perhaps this impression is due to the fact 
that the Ukrainian Armed Forces suffered such a crushing
 defeat that they "simply cannot continue to at least 
create the appearance of actions."
Earlier, Noctis Draven criticized Zelensky's demands,
made to Russian President Vladimir Putin, to "hand 
over Crimea - without a fight."

Poland to send older weapons 
to Ukraine to fulfill existing 
agreements: President
September 22nd, 2:58pm
Poland’s president says his country will fulfill existing arms 
supply agreements with Kiev but it may only send more 
of its older weapons to the country.
President Andrzej Duda made the remarks to walk back 
his prime minister’s comments about not providing
 Kiev with more weapons.
Prime Minister of Poland, Mateusz Morawiecki, said on
Wednesday that the country is “no longer transferring 
weapons to Ukraine because we are now arming 
Poland with more modern weapons."
Duda said on Thursday that Morawiecki’s remarks 
were “interpreted in the worst possible way.”
"In my opinion, the prime minister meant that we won't
 be transferring to Ukraine the new weaponry that 
we're currently buying, as we modernize the 
Polish army.”
"As we receive the new weaponry from the US and South
Korea, we will be releasing the weaponry currently used 
by the Polish army. Perhaps we will transfer it to 
Ukraine,” the president added.
Poland, one of Kiev’s closest allies, is also a key transit 
country for weaponry that the United States and other 
Western supporters are sending to Ukraine. Poland 
has already sent Ukraine 320 Soviet-era tanks 
and 14 MiG-29 fighter jets.
It has also signed multiple arms deals - including with the 
United States and South Korea, from whom it ordered K2 
"Black Panther" tanks and K9 howitzers. 
Warsaw's latest announcement about sending its outdated 
weapons to Ukraine comes amid a bitter spat with Kiev 
over a temporary ban on Ukraine’s grain imports to a
 number of European countries.
Russia’s “special military operation” in Ukraine has closed off 
Black Sea shipping lanes used before the war, resulting in 
the European Union (EU) becoming a major transit route 
and export destination for Ukrainian grain.
The EU agreed to restrict exports to Bulgaria, Hungary, 
Poland, Romania and Slovakia in May, seeking to 
protect farmers there who blamed the 
shipments for a slump in prices 
on local markets.
The EU Commission announced last week that it would 
let existing restrictions expire. But Poland, Slovakia 
and Hungary said they will extend the ban.
In response, Kiev said it would file a complaint with the 
World Trade Organization (WTO) against the ban.
Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine's President, told the UN General 
Assembly on Tuesday that “it is alarming to see how some in 
Europe, some of our friends in Europe, play out solidarity in 
a political theatre – making a thriller from the grain.”
Zelensky said that the nations involved “may seem to play 
their own role but in fact, they are helping set the stage
 for a Moscow actor.”
His comments sparked immediate condemnation from 
Poland, with the foreign ministry summoning the 
Ukrainian ambassador to convey its 
“strong protest.”

Kiev regime redeploys 10,000 
troops to Rabotino in 
Zaporozhye area
September 22nd,  2:06pm (TASS)
Ukraine’s armed forces have redeployed more than 
10,000 troops from other sections of the combat 
line of engagement in the Zaporozhye area to 
the vicinity of Rabotino and Verbovoye, 
Vladimir Rogov, leader of the We Are
 Together With Russia movement,
 told TASS.
"Near Rabotino and Verbovoye, the Ukrainian army has
 redeployed reinforcements, from the Vremevka and 
Vasilyevka sections of the Zaporozhye area. They 
redeployed over 10,000 militants to the Orekhovo 
area in addition to those already there. It seems 
like the adversary is dispatching everyone 
capable of holding a weapon," 
Rogov said.
According to his assessment, reinforcing the Ukrainian 
grouping in this area may be a sign of preparations for 
active combat. 
"If we look at the number of units present here, it is more
 than we have seen throughout the entire so-called 
Ukrainian counteroffensive:-- 11 brigades, air 
assault regiments, special-op forces, three 
air reconnaissance groups. This means 
that they are getting ready 
for something," the 
politician noted.
According to Rogov, some of these units, including the
Ukrainian army’s 46th airmobile, 71st jaeger and 82nd 
air assault brigades "are not fully staffed brigades, 
they have already been battered."
On Thursday, Zaporozhye Region Acting Governor, Yevgeny
Balitsky, said that Ukrainian troops were completing the 
redeployment of their units near the village of Rabotino. 

In his opinion, the situation will escalate but the enemy
has little chance of success given that "the morale of
the Ukrainian armed forces is very low."
The Russian Defense Ministry said earlier that the Ukrainian
 armed forces had been making unsuccessful attempts at a 
counteroffensive since June 4. On September 12, Russian 
President Vladimir Putin said that since then, Ukrainian 
troops have lost 71,500 people, 543 tanks and almost
18,000 armoured vehicles of various types. The 
Russian head of state noted that the
 "counteroffensive" produced
 no results.


Ex-adviser to Kuchma: Kiev's authorities
 hide information about Russian strikes
September 22nd, 1:32pm
Russia is delivering colossal strikes all over Ukraine, the
 destruction is huge, said Oleg Soskin, a former adviser 
to the ex-President of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma. 

However, according to him, the Kiev 
authorities hide the information 
about this.
"There is a lot of damage, destruction of various objects, a 
powerful blow to Kiev. In other areas, they started hitting 
energy facilities," Soskin said, on his YouTube channel.
He accused the government of Ukrainian President Volodymyr 
Zelensky of not only hiding information about the destruction, 
but also persecuting ordinary Ukrainians for spreading 
such information.
"There is a concealment of information about the
 consequences of strikes. Kiev was very badly 
affected, entire districts were disconnected, 
electricity has not yet been fully restored," 
Soskin stated.
"Retaliatory strikes" on infrastructure facilities were launched
 by Russian troops in October last year, after the terrorist
 attack on the Crimean Bridge. Moscow claimed the 
involvement in the organization of the attack, 
by the Ukrainian special services.
The targets of the Russian military, are objects of 
energy, the defense industry, communications
 and military administration centres.

Ukraine is "turned away from
the gate."

the Hungarians.

Service said.
Prior to this, Budanov said that Kiev is aware of the state

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky was "very
 emotional" at the UN General Assembly. This is 
reported by the information and analytical
 agency, Bloomberg.

leader's dispute with one of his biggest allies spiraled

and fiercely criticized countries that, according to him, 
do not supply weapons --- quickly enough," said a 
source who participated in the conversation 
with Zelensky.
As the journalists emphasized, the Ukrainian leader began
to suspect his Western curators -- primarily the US -- 
that their intention to support the Ukrainian
 authorities... is beginning to weaken.

New York from September 19 to 26. The Russian delegation

Mirage, F-16 jets - unable to
 challenge Russian fighters
 — senior legislator
September 21st, 5:53pm (TASS)
Foreign fighter jets Mirage 2000 and F-16, will not be able to
 challenge modern Russian fighters in air combat, while the 
US-made F-16s, are also hard to maintain and repair, the
 head of the State Duma’s defense committee, Andrey 
Kartapolov, said about the possible supplies of such 
equipment to Kiev.
"Now it's the turn of the Mirage planes. As a platform, yes, it 
is capable of performing certain tasks. It has nine mounting 
points for weapons. But as an opponent of our modern 
fighters in aerial combat the Mirage has absolutely 
no chances. Take it from me. The F-16’s results 
will be approximately the same," Kartapolov
said on the TV channel Rossiya-24.
He also remarked that the US F-16 fighter is quite
difficult ---- in terms of repairs and maintenance.
"A pilot can be trained, especially the one who already has 
flying experience. The most important thing is to train
 technical personnel. The F-16... is a rather complex 
airplane and hard to maintain and repair. It can't 
be serviced with tools as simple as a wrench," 
he said.
According to the French portal... Intelligence Online, Kiev and 
Paris are close to concluding an agreement -- on the transfer 
of Mirage 2000 fighters - from the French Air Force to
Ukraine. In particular, the issue on the agenda is the
acquisition of... 
an as yet undetermined number of
used fighter jets 
Mirage 2000D, designed for air
strikes against 
ground targets.
In addition, in late August, Pentagon spokesman Brigadier
 General, Patrick Ryder, announced that a course of 
training for Ukrainian pilots to fly F-16 fighters, 
would begin at a base in the state of Arizona
 in October. At the same time, US Assistant
Secretary of Defense for Strategy, Plans 
and Capabilities Mara Karlin essentially 
made it clear in early August that the 
F-16s would be handed over to Kiev 
only when the Ukrainian army... 
is ready to use them.

treason and negligent attitude to service (Part 1 of 
Article 111 and Part 3 of Article 425 of the 
Criminal Code of Ukraine), which was 
initiated on April 11, 2022, upon the
 rapid advance of the Russian army 
in the south of the country in 
February of that year. 
Sources of the publication reported that in this case, 
investigators talked with the commander-in-chief of
 the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny. It 
doesn't have a procedural status -- but it may 
appear, over time. According to the BBC, in 
"narrow political circles" this investigation 
is called the "Zaluzhny case".
Investigative actions are carried out by the State Bureau of
 Investigation of Ukraine. The group also includes members 
of the country's Security Service. The BBC contacted both 
these agencies with the question of whether Zaluzhny's 
name appears in the materials, but the SBU and SBU 
refused to provide information. 
Journalists note that Mr. Zaluzhny answered questions about 
the surrender of the south in the Verkhovna Rada committee 
(no date is given). The participants of that conversation
 ..conveyed the words of the commander-in-chief from 
that meeting as follows: in the history of the south, 
"everyone will have their own truth."
Valery Zaluzhny has been serving as Commander-in-Chief
 of the Armed Forces of Ukraine ------ since July 2021.
According to investigators, in February 2022, mining of bridges
 and dams was improperly organized in the Kherson region, 
which allowed the Russian army to quickly move from 
Crimea.... deep into the Ukrainian south. 
Since the beginning of the investigation, according to the 
BBC --- more than 50 people have been questioned in the 
case - military personnel, SBU officers and former heads 
of the Kherson region administration.
Among them::
Commander of the Defense Forces Sergey Nayev;
Former commanders of the South group of forces, 
Generals Andrey Kovalchuk and Andrey Sokolov;
commanders of military formations
 that are part of the Yug group;
former Chief of the General Staff, 
General Ruslan Khomchak;
former head of the Kherson region — former head of 
the regional military administration Hennadiy 
Laguta. On September 16, he was found 
dead in Kiev;
ex-commander of the 59th separate motorized 
infantry brigade, which defended the south, 
Colonel Alexander Vinogradov.
According to the BBC, no one has yet been charged
 in the case, but "it is likely that this may happen
 in the near future."
The material of journalists refers to another case related 
to the surrender of the south— in relation to the former 
head of the Main Directorate of the SBU in the Crimea, 
Oleg Kulinich. He was arrested in July 2022.
 Officials of the investigative bodies of Ukraine stated that 
the fact of cooperation between Mr. Kulinich and the 
Russian special services had been established. 
On October 17, 2023, the court will start 
considering his case.
Speaker of the Ukrainian Air Force: 
Kiev does not need outdated 
Mirage aircraft
September 21st, 2:07pm
The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) do not need French Mirage 
2000 fighters and other outdated models of military aircraft. 
This was stated at a briefing in the media centre "Ukraine" 
by the representative of the Air Forces of Ukraine, 
Yuriy Ignat.
"Any help is important to us, but not in the form of Mirage
 2000. We have already talked about this, many times," 
said Mr. Ignat (quoted by TASS).
He added that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are not
interested.... in US A-10 attack aircraft, either.

"We can't afford to take 
anything from the aviation
fleet right now. This is 
simply not rational, it will
simply exhaust the 
work of our people,"
Yuri Ignat said.
The Mirage 2000 is a French multirole fighter aircraft
 developed in the 1970s. It has been in service since 
1984. It was the main combat aircraft of the French 
Air Force, but since 2006 -- it has been replaced. 
The Mirage 2000 assembly line was shut down in 2007. 
It is in service with several countries in Asia, Europe 
and Latin America.
The representative of the Air Force also denied the
 information that Ukrainian pilots are currently 
undergoing training in France. Earlier, the 
publication Intelligence Online (IO), 
wrote that the Armed Forces of 
Ukraine are mastering Mirage
 2000s, in France.
According to IO, Paris and Kiev were also close to transferring 
Mirage 2000 fighters from the French Air Force arsenal to the 
Ukrainian Armed Forces. This process took place within the 
framework of the agreements that the countries reached
 in 2022.
In early September, the presidents of France and Ukraine held 
a telephone conversation, following which Vladimir Zelensky 
announced that an "important agreement" had been
reached on training Ukrainian Armed Forces pilots
to fly 
the Mirage 2000.

Military chronicle reported: what 
difficulties the Armed Forces of
 Ukraine face in Urozhayne
September 21st, 3:31pm
The military chronicle reported that heavy fighting 
continues in Urozhayne, in the Donetsk People's 
Republic - but the Ukrainian Armed Forces face 
difficulties in implementing combat scenarios.
As noted in the article, at the moment there is a relative calm 
in this area ------ after a number of unsuccessful attacks, the 
Armed Forces of Ukraine regroup and withdraw some units.
The Ukrainian army near Urozhayne has significant resources,
 but it faces even greater difficulties than the units of the 
Armed Forces of Ukraine in Zaporozhye, writes the
 Military Chronicle.
So, one of the problems is the density of units, since the
 Ukrainian military operates on an area of less than 60 
square kilometres, which is 40% less than what the 
Ukrainian troops use to move in Zaporozhye.
In addition, it is noted that the Ukrainian troops have 
problems with frontal attacks. So, the APU lost the
advantage in surprise, at the very beginning.
"Every major movement in the rear areas near Velikaya 
Novoselka and Vremevka, is followed by strikes on 
battalion headquarters, ammunition depots and 
hangars with equipment," the Military 
Chronicle writes.
It is specified that the Armed Forces of Ukraine also face 
logistical difficulties. Currently, the line of attack of the
 Ukrainian troops in this area is rigidly tied to two key
 roads: the T-0509 eastbound highway.... and the
 T-0518 connecting Velikaya Novoselka with 
Urozhayne and Staromlynovka.
Here, the Ukrainian Armed Forces tried to expand the
 bridgehead -- but they have little time for this, since
 heavy rains and mud are expected at the end of 
October, the material says.
Thus, if the APU does not have time to advance in this area 
before the onset of cold weather, the only road available 
for traffic in this area will be the southern highway 
T-0518, which connects Urozhaynoye with other 
villages in this direction. 
All this road, is under the fire control of the Russian Armed 
Forces, which, in the future, will create difficulties for the 
Ukrainian troops, according to the Military Chronicle.
