All-Russia is moving to liberation

 (only on youtube)
'come and see'
- a partisan film
 
Watch this film --- and you
will - finally - understand.
 
https://www.youtube.com/
watch?v=NJYOg4ORc1w
 
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!

THE TRAGEDY IN UKRAINE
 
"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.
 
 
MESSAGE 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 
into
an American and in general a NATO 
base, ideal for aggression against
Russia! 
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
certain 
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, 
openly! 
 
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 
Germany
that would again give a 
"road map" to these inhumans!
But 
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 
decades. 
 
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 
ESPECIALLY!
 
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 
history! 
 
German weapons are back in the 
hands of Nazi thugs! Please stop!

Three civilians in the Donetsk People's Republic were 
injured as a result of an attack by the Armed Forces 
of Ukraine on Donetsk and Gorlovka. This was 
announced on July 3rd, by the head of the 
DPR, Denis Pushilin.
 
"In the Petrovsky district of Donetsk, men born in 1967 
and 1985 were wounded in a barrel artillery attack 
(moderate condition). In the Nikitovsky district of 
Gorlovka, as a result of dropping an explosive 
object from a drone, a man born in 1978 was
 injured (moderate condition)," the 
Telegram channel says.
 
Pushilin noted that the victims received the necessary 
medical care. He added that in the morning --- as a 
result of an attack.... by the armed formations of 
Ukraine with a high-precision HIMARS missile,
 the building of the Primary Health Care 
Centre No. 7, in Donetsk, received 
significant damage.
 
Izvestia correspondent Alexander Martemyanov 
illustrated the consequences of the shelling of 
Ukrainian militants in Donetsk.
 
"There was a massive explosion, and the hospital 
windows blew in. This is the only such powerful 
explosion, even from there, I heard it at home," 
said a local resident.
 
In addition, according to the head of the DPR, 12
 residential buildings were damaged in the Kiev 
& Petrovsky districts of Donetsk, Nikitovsky 
district of Gorlovka, as well as five civilian 
infrastructure facilities.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian 
Federation told about the exploits of
 the Russian Armed Forces in
 the free defense zone
July 3rd, 10pm
(Izvestia.ru)
 
The Russian Ministry of Defense indicated -- that Guard 
Sergeant Ihor Bondarenko, performed combat missions
 to engage clusters of equipment and manpower of
the Armed Forces of Ukraine as part of a
howitzer artillery 
battery.

His crew was subjected to retaliatory fire from 
the enemy ---- while changing positions. 
 
However, Bondarenko ----- brought the gun into combat 
position and, having calculated the coordinates of the
target - personally destroyed the artillery installation 
and up to 10 enemy personnel with an accurate shot.
 
Due to this, the Ukrainian militants lost artillery support, 
were unable to hold the occupied lines and were forced 
to leave their positions in a hurry, suffering losses.
 
The Defense Ministry - also noted the merits of the chief of 
the calculation of the anti-aircraft missile division, Senior 
Lieutenant Maxim Borisov. He performed tasks to cover 
the grouping of the Armed Forces of the Russian 
Federation from enemy air attacks ---
with his unit.
 
The Armed Forces of Ukraine attacked the positions of 
Russian units, using strike unmanned aircraft and 
multiple launch rocket systems, to destroy 
important military infrastructure and 
reduce the combat potential.
 
However --------- the crew under Maksimov's command 
immediately began to repel the air attack, destroying 
an unmanned aerial vehicle of Ukrainian militants, 
as well as.. six MLRS shells. Maksimov's courage 
and determination and the high professionalism 
of his subordinates helped to save the lives of 
his comrades-in-arms, while preventing air 
strikes on the manpower and equipment 
of the covered units.

The Border Service of Ukraine 
reported the detention of 10 
evaders.... in a wheat field
July 3rd, 9:40pm
(Izvestia.ru)
 
In Ukraine, 10 men tried to enter Hungary through 
a wheat field to avoid mobilization. This was 
reported on July 3 by the press service of 
the Border Guard Service of Ukraine.
 
"10 reapers (evaders. - Ed.) tried to sneak into Hungary 
within a wheat field," the ministry said in a message
 on its Telegram channel.
 
It is noted -- that all those who fled paid from $7 thousand 
to $10 thousand to the guides to organize their transition. 

The service clarified that two of the detainees,
even 
tried to escape from the border guards.
 
"The detainees are now facing administrative 
punishment, and the organizers — criminal,"
 the report added.
 
Earlier, on June 30, it was reported that in Ukraine, border
 guards shot a man who tried to cross the border with 
Romania in the company of a partner. As noted, the 
border guards opened fire after the men attacked 
them with a machete. One was shot in the leg, 
and the other was shot in the head.
 
President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, whose term 
of office expired on May 20, signed a law on tightening 
mobilization on April 16. The document clarifies the 
categories of persons subject to mobilization and 
toughens the penalties for evading it, but there 
are no provisions on demobilization. The law 
on strengthening mobilization came into
 force on May 18.
 
Martial law in Ukraine is effective from February 2022. At 
the same time... Zelensky signed a decree on general 
mobilization. Later, the Verkhovna Rada repeatedly 
extended its validity. Most men between the ages
 of 18 and 60 are prohibited from leaving 
the country.
 
The special operation to protect the Donbass, which 
Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on 
February 24, 2022, continues. The decision 
was made against the background of the 
worsening situation in the region.

Soldiers of the Russian Armed Forces 
showed "underground city" system 
in the Seversk direction
 July 3rd, 8:28pm
(Izvestia.ru)
 
Military personnel of the Yug group of forces -- use the 
underground city system in the Seversky direction to 
move guns, as well as to attack the positions of the 
Armed Forces of Ukraine. Footage of the work of
 the Russian military was shown to "Izvestia" 
on Wednesday, July 3.
 
Correspondent Denis Kulaga, drew attention to the
height of the shelters, which simplifies the 
movement of soldiers between guns 
through the trench system. 
 
According to him, you can move 
safely and quickly there.
 
Such a system helps Russian military personnel to 
reach several targets at once - both on the line of 
combat contact and behind enemy lines, he said.
 
"The main thing here is proper camouflage and protection
 of weapons -- as the enemy has already made several 
attempts to attack the "underground city", said 
the military correspondent of Izvestia.
 
On the evening of July 2nd, Russian soldiers told about 
the calculation of the positions of the Ukrainian Armed 
Forces by Zala drones. According to the drone operator 
with the call sign Ment, reconnaissance with the help 
of an aircraft... can be conducted up to 50 km deep 
into enemy positions. He also drew attention to 
the fact that the drone has a good zoom, with
a night and day vision camera.
 
The special operation to protect the Donbass, which 
Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on 
February 24, 2022, continues. The decision 
was made against the background of the 
worsening situation in the region.

US journalist names those 
responsible for the 
military coup 
in Ukraine
 July 3rd, 7:11pm
(Lenta.ru)
 
The Azov brigade (an organization recognized as a 
terrorist organization and banned in Russia) 
actually carried out the military coup in
 Ukraine, intimidating the country's
 President, Vladimir Zelensky. 
 
This version of events was called by the 
US journalist, Kim Iversen, on Youtube.
 
As the journalist pointed out, the fact that Zelensky 
dismissed the commander of the joint Forces of 
the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yuriy Sodol after
 criticism from the chief of staff of "Azov" - 
Bogdan Krotevich, indicates a complete
 transfer of power to the brigade.
 
"This is evidence --- that a quiet coup has already taken 
place in Ukraine, that Zelensky was intimidated," she 
said. Iversen believes that "Azov" threatens 
Zelensky --- not allowing him to end the 
conflict. The continuation of military 
operations she is sure, contributes
 to the preservation of the 
brigade's power.
 
Earlier, Zelensky said that the new counteroffensive of 
the Armed Forces of Ukraine.. is a matter of supplying 
military aid to Ukraine. According to him, the Armed 
Forces of Ukraine are in a better position in terms
 of staffing, compared to previous months.

Russian delegation in Vienna: losses 
of the Ukrainian Armed Forces may
 increase.... closer to NATO summit
July 3rd, 5:40pm
(Vesti.ru)
 
The losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine may increase 
as the NATO summit approaches, said Oleg Bushuev, a 
member of the Russian delegation at the Vienna talks 
on military security and arms control. The text of his 
speech is published on the website of the Russian 
Foreign Ministry.
 
According to Bushuev, the losses of the Armed Forces 
of Ukraine have already increased significantly: at the 
beginning of June, they averaged about 1,100 people 
a day, and at the end they reached 2,300. But for the 
collective West, these catastrophic losses of the 
Kiev regime.. have no meaning.
 
Kiev, following the instructions of its Western curators, 
tightens the rules of conscription and continues its 
inhumane mobilization. So, from July 1, some 
categories of students will be sent to the 
front, the Russian diplomat noted.
 
"It is obvious that neither the forced mobilization nor the 
continued intensive pumping of the Kiev regime with 
Western weapons - will be able to reverse the 
extremely negative trends on the battlefield 
for the Armed Forces of Ukraine," 
Bushuyev stressed.
 
The German newspaper Die Welt wrote earlier that in 
order to create new brigades and compensate for 
losses, Kiev needs to replenish the ranks of the 
Armed Forces of Ukraine by 200 thousand 
soldiers by the end of the year. 
 
That is, according to the existing plan, 50 thousand 
people should be mobilized every three months. 
However, recently there has been a 
significant lag behind this 
mobilization plan.
 
The NATO summit is scheduled for July 9-11 in 
Washington. It will be dedicated to the 75th
 anniversary of the alliance.

Soldiers of the Lipetsk battalion 
defended a stronghold in the 
SVO zone at the cost of 
their lives
July 3rd, 4:40pm
(Vesti.ru)
 
Soldiers of the Lipetsk battalion tactical group were
killed
 in the area of a special military operation,
having 
defended the stronghold, at the cost
of 
their lives.
 
 The head of the Lipetsk Region Igor Artamonov 
wrote about this in his Telegram channel.
 
According to the governor, the soldiers defended the 
point for almost two weeks, while the enemy tried 
their best to knock them out of their positions.
 
"Shelling and attacks were carried out every day. The 
men didn't back down. They did not give up a single 
centimetre of land," he wrote, emphasizing that
among the dead ....is the commander of the 
tactical group with the call sign Tulweke.
 
According to Artamonov, the fighters were professionals 
from the very beginning, able to perform any task set.

 He also said that representatives of the region 
visited the site of the battle and "saw 
everything with their own eyes", 
showed photos and videos 
from there. 
 
The governor noted that it is difficult to imagine how 
the group was able not only to resist, but also to 
push back the enemy.
 
In the Lipetsk region, they will apply for awarding heroes, 
and the families of the fighters who gave their lives will 
be provided with all the necessary assistance. 

The wounded will be able to undergo 
rehabilitation after discharge.

Sinegubov: FAB-500 
can reach anywhere
 in Kharkiv
July 3rd, 3:45pm
(Vesti.ru)
 
The head of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration, 
Oleg Sinegubov, warned that the Russian FAB-500 aerial 
bomb with an extended range..... can reach anywhere
 in Kharkiv.
 
A modified high-explosive bomb with flight-correcting 
equipment has already been used by the Russian 
army in the Kupyansk direction, Sinegubov 
stressed. And recently, the Russian 
Armed Forces have begun to use 
this powerful weapon to attack
 industrial facilities in Kharkiv.
 
After the modification, the FAB-500 has acquired a new 
feature in the form of an increased range of up to 
80 kilometres, which allows it to reach any 
military facilities in Kharkiv.
 
Earlier, it was reported about similar strikes on a 
warehouse with ammunition and the production 
of drones of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in 
Nemyshlyansky and Industrial districts 
in Kharkiv.
 
Sinegubov noted that the use of this type of weapons

British expert Alexander Merkouris said that an ever-
widening gap has formed in the defense of the 
Ukrainian army in the Avdiivka area.
 
"After the fall of Avdiivka, the Russians made a huge 
breach in the Ukrainian defense. We see that this 
gap.... is increasing all the time," the analyst 
noted in his blog on YouTube, adding that 
the defense lines were breached, in
the 
strongest place.
 
According to him, the Ukrainian Armed Forces are 
desperately trying to contain the offensive of the

The captive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine 
stated that it is impossible to escape 
from forced mobilization
July 3rd, 10:55am
(Izvestia.ru)
 
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, whose term of 
office expired on May 20, comes up with such laws that 
do not allow men to leave a military enlistment office. 

This was announced on Wednesday, July 3rd, by a 
captured serviceman of the Ukrainian army,
 Serhiy Olkhov.


He clarified that - until the last - he fought the military 
enlistment office.... so as not to be taken to the front.
 
"Zelensky invents such laws that you simply can't get 
away from the military enlistment office. I also say, 
that I didn't want to come here - to go," the 
prisoner shared on the video, which is 
available to Izvestia.
 
As the military man noted, he is against military action, 
against killing people. The Ukrainian military men 
escape from the army --- but they are found, 
Olkhov added.
 
The ''President of Ukraine'' ..signed a law on tougher 
mobilization on April 16. It clarified the categories
 of people subject to conscription - and also 
introduced heavier penalties for evading 
service.. in the Ukrainian army. There 
are no provisions on demobilization 
of the military - in this law.
 
Zelensky lowered the age of mobilization, from 27 to 25 
years and signed a law on the creation of an electronic 
register of those liable for military service, which will 
combine information about the personal data of 
Ukrainians. He also abolished the status of a 
limited serviceable person in the army. 
 
So, in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be
able to serve ----- patients with HIV, with some forms
of 
cancer, with residual symptoms of tuberculosis
------ and men with mental retardation.
 
Martial law in Ukraine is effective from February 2022. 
 
At the same time, Zelensky signed a decree on general 
mobilization. Later... the Verkhovna Rada repeatedly 
extended its validity. Most men between the ages
 of 18 and 60 ---- are prohibited from leaving 
the country.
 
The special operation to protect the Donbass, which 
Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on 
February 24th, 2022, continues. The decision
 was made --- against the background of the
 aggravation of the situation in the region,
 due to shelling by the Ukrainian military.

buildings - of civilians located in the villages of Oktyabr 
and Kominternovo in the Novoazovsky district and the 
settlement of Chermalyk in the Telmanovsky district.

treatment of the civilian population. At the moment, 
Evgeny Ermolenko, Sergey Prisyazhnyuk, Maxim 
Polegenko, Stanislav Voitok ------ are serving 
sentences in the form of imprisonment.

 the engineering and technical company of the 
36th separate Marine Brigade of the Armed 
Forces of Ukraine, to life imprisonment.

doubts.... since previous agreements on a

Russian snipers told about
a two-on-two 
duel with
Ukrainian Armed
Forces soldiers
July 3rd, 1am
(Lenta.ru)
 
Russian snipers with the call signs Sych and Vanity from 
the Nevsky detachment - part of the Volunteer Assault 
Corps (DShK), met in a sniper duel - with a pair of 
professional shooters of the Armed Forces
of Ukraine (AFU). 
 
According to the fighters, they spent most of the
spring 
performing tasks near the town of
Chasov Yar --- 
disrupting rotations
and countering
 enemy
personnel.
 
When the loss of infantry from the fire of Sych and Suet
 exceeded several dozen people.... the Ukrainian 
command decided to send a sniper pair that 
was supposed to calculate and destroy 
the Russian shooters. 
 
"We knew for sure that they would come after us.
 Sometimes they invite foreigners, but at that 
time, as I understood, it was the Ukrainian 
duo. The enemy also has professionals," 
the military said.
 
To calculate the positions of snipers of the Armed Forces 
of Ukraine.. the soldiers had to spend almost a day. The 
enemy gave himself away when he decided to change 
his position ....and thereby unmasked himself.
 
"I shot a Ukrainian machine gunner in a nearby landing. 
They spotted our shot & began to shift quickly. I saw 
the flash of a rifle and fired a second shot. Then 
everything... is like in the movies," explained 
Vanity. At the same time, according to the
 volunteers.... the second number in the 
pair of the enemy survived and later 
.....managed to escape.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian 
Federation told about the exploits of
 the Russian Armed Forces in the 
free defense zone
July 2nd, 10pm
 (Izvestia.ru)
 
The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation - 
indicated that the captain of the 3rd rank, deputy 
chief of communications of the battalion 
Konstantin Veselov ----- organized the
communications for the battalion 
tactical group --- when it was 
attacked by the Armed 
Forces of Ukraine. 
 
The offensive was accompanied by massive mortar and 
artillery strikes. After one of the volleys, the satellite 
communication antenna located on the hardware 
machine was damaged ---- which caused 
communication within the group and
 with the higher headquarters
to 
be disrupted. 
 
Veselov, during the ongoing enemy attacks, 
promptly repaired all the damage - 
and re-configured the satellite 
communication station.
 
This made it possible to transmit the coordinates of the
enemy units' locations to a higher headquarters, and
 the Russian Armed Forces were able to destroy 
four units of enemy equipment and more
than 
30 people of manpower. 
 
The Russian Defense Ministry - noted Veselov's selfless 
actions, which made it possible to restore control of 
the battalion tactical group ...and ensure stable 
communication with the group's command, 
as well as deprive the advancing enemy 
of attacking potential ----- led to the 
subsequent counteroffensive of 
Russian troops.
 
The Defense Ministry also noted the merits of Lt, platoon 
commander of the mortar battery, Mher Kocharyan. His 
unit carried out a combat mission --- to support the 
offensive of Russian troops with mortar fire. 
 
During reconnaissance with the help of a drone, the 
fighter discovered ....a disguised AFU stronghold.
He 
promptly transmitted its coordinates, and 
continued to observe... the actions of the 
Ukrainian militants - who began to pull 
together additional forces in order to 
counterattack the units of the 
Russian Armed Forces.
 
Kocharyan waited for the accumulation of a large number 
of manpower and military equipment of the AFU militants, 
after which he gave the command to the mortars to hit 
the target, and then continued to adjust the fire. 
 
The professionalism and competent actions of the 
platoon commander of the mortar battery & his 
subordinates, made it possible to destroy the 
stronghold of Ukrainian militants, including 
equipment and manpower, with targeted 
strikes. The Defense Ministry noted the 
courage and bravery of the platoon's 
personnel, which made it possible 
to thwart an attempted counter-
offensive in this direction.

Militants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU), shelled 
the village of Panteleimonovka in the Donetsk People's 
Republic (DPR) ..with 155 mm cluster shells. This was

The military expert - pointed out 
the need for Ukraine to change 
tactics - in relation to the 
Russian Federation
July 2nd, 8:12pm
(Izvestia.ru)
 
Viktor Baranets, a retired military columnist for
Komsomolskaya Pravda --- said that no efforts 
and persuasions of Hungarian Prime Minister 
Viktor Orban will help if Ukrainian President 
Volodymyr Zelensky, whose term of office 
expired on May 20, does not change 
tactics towards Russia.
 
"We must remember: with such stupidity in Kiev, which
 exists in relation to plans for further relations with 
Russia, nothing can be done without Zelensky 
compromising. If he does not compromise, 
then no efforts of Orban, even the most 
populist ones --- will help," Baranets 
said in an interview with Radio 1 
on Tuesday, July 2.
 
Earlier in the day, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban 
arrived in Kiev, where he held talks with Zelensky. The 
Hungarian Prime Minister... suggested that Ukraine 
temporarily cease fire and develop a settlement 
plan during this period. The Hungarian Prime 
Minister --- also expressed his desire to 
establish relations with the country 
and sign a global cooperation 
agreement with it.
 
Zelensky did not like Orban's proposal for a cease-fire 
"very much", since, in the past, he had a negative
 experience with truces that he "interpreted as
 harmful to Ukraine." He also added, that
 Kiev.. intends to seek a settlement of 
the conflict through peace summits.
 
Earlier on July 2, Candidate of Political Sciences, 
associate Professor of the Academy of Labour
 and Social Relations Pavel Feldman said in an
 interview with RT that the visit of Hungarian 
Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, to Kiev, is 
connected with the beginning of the 
country's presidency in the EU. In
 his opinion -- Orban arrives there 
as a representative of Brussels 
....rather than his own state.
 
Political scientist Yuri Svetov in an interview with 360.ru
called Orban's visit to Kiev a ritual procedure. Hungary
 assumed the six-month presidency of the Council 
of the EU, on July 1.
 
On June 14, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that 
Russia has always sought peace and is ready to sit 
down at the negotiating table. This.. will become 
possible when Kiev withdraws its troops from 
the regions of the Russian Federation and 
officially renounces its intentions to 
integrate into NATO. Zelensky 
called the proposal

Smoke munition neutralized more than 100 mines of 
the Armed Forces of Ukraine, it was dropped after 
adjusting the fire by the drone operator. A 
soldier of the 40th Marine Brigade with 
the call sign Farm told about this in
 the Telegram channel.
 
According to him, the enemy spent the whole night 
mining an area of about 200 metres long with anti-
tank mines. "In the morning, I directed a mortar 
crew, gave accurate proofreading and set fire 
to this place with a smoke shell, about 120-
140 mines were burned," the 
serviceman said.
 
Earlier it was reported that the Ukrainian Armed Forces 
tried to save fighters from strikes ------ using drawings. 

Silhouettes of fighter jets were drawn in the parking

The Russian Foreign Ministry pointed
 to the responsibility of the West for 
fueling the crisis in Ukraine 
July 2nd, 6:39pm
(Izvestia.ru)
 
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Alexander Grushko, 
during a consultation with Serbian Foreign Minister 
Marko Djuric, pointed out the responsibility of 
Western countries --- for the escalation of
 the crisis in Ukraine.
 
In Belgrade on July 1 and 2, the diplomat had separate 
conversations with President Aleksandar Vucic, Prime 
Minister Milos Vucevic and other officials. During the 
visit, a wide range of issues of cooperation between 
states, as well as international issues, aspects of 
interaction on international platforms 
were discussed. 
 
The Russian Foreign Ministry clarified that attention was 
paid to the Kosovo settlement and the situation in the 
Balkans, with an emphasis on the situation in 
Bosnia and Herzegovina.
 
"The Russian side gave principled assessments of the 
West's responsibility for fueling and escalating the 
crisis around Ukraine, actions aimed at blocking 
the possibility of a political settlement, and 
attempts.. to create the illusion of broad
 international support for the formula 
[of the Ukrainian President] that is 
divorced from reality and initially 
doomed to failure." the press 
service of the Russian 
Foreign Ministry said 
in a publication on 
July 2.
 
The ministry's publication added that they also 
reviewed the implementation of agreements 
and the implementation of joint projects of
 Russian-Serbian cooperation.
 
Earlier in the day, Deputy Chairman of the Federation 
Council Konstantin Kosachev said that the West 
had made five fatal mistakes in the context of 
the Ukrainian crisis, the latest being their 
rejection - of Russian President Vladimir 
Putin's initiative to resolve the conflict. 
 
He pointed out that the first mistake 
was the lack of Western reaction to 
the coup in Ukraine in 2014.
 
In his opinion, the second mistake is the West's refusal 
to recognize that the change in the status of Crimea 
& Sevastopol was the result of a coup in Ukraine, 
as well as an expression of the will of the
 inhabitants of these regions. 
 
Other mistakes include the West's failure to recognize 
the "civil war" in southeastern Ukraine, refusing to 
accept Russian proposals in December 2021, 
and missing a chance to prevent a 
special operation.
 
Before that, on June 14, Putin said that the Ukrainian 
crisis is not a conflict between two states --- much
 less two peoples, because if this were the case, 
the Russians and Ukrainians would find a way 
- to resolve the issues. As the Russian leader 
noted, the West did everything to undermine 
interstate ties and set peoples against each 
other, but did not dare to go for a complete 
break with Russia because the south-east
 of Ukraine, where people were in favour 
of close relations with Moscow, 
prevented such a policy.
 
The special operation to protect the Donbass, which 
was announced on February 24, 2022, continues. 

The decision was made against the background 
of the aggravation of the situation in the region 
due to shelling by the Ukrainian military.

Ukraine - rejected Orban's 
proposal for a cease-fire
July 2nd, 4:51pm
(Vesti.ru)
 
Kiev got acquainted with Orban's proposals for 
a ceasefire, but refused to consider them in 
isolation from other aspects of the 
conflict settlement.
 
Deputy head of the Office of the President of Ukraine 
Ihor Zhovkva said that Kiev refused the proposal of 
Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, on a 
cease-fire in Ukraine.
 
Zhovkva, on the air of the Ukrainian telethon, noted that 
Zelensky listened to the interlocutor, but refused, since 
such proposals cannot be considered in isolation from
other aspects of the conflict. He also noted, that 
Hungary is not the first country to make such 
proposals, but Ukraine's position on this 
issue is "clear, understandable and 
well-known." 
 
According to him --- Ukraine intends to continue 
to seek a settlement through "peace summits".
 
The first summit on the situation in Ukraine was held 
in Switzerland on June 15-16. It was attended by 92 
countries, but Russia was not invited. Ukrainian 
Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba later said that 
in order to end the conflict, the Russian side 
will also be invited to the next meeting.

Syrsky - called the situation in 
Pokrovsky direction ''difficult''
July 2nd, 4:20pm
(Vesti.ru)
 
Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine 
Alexander Syrsky, acknowledged that the situation 
in the Pokrovsky direction remains difficult for the 
Ukrainian army, and stated the need to constantly 
provide this direction with an additional amount 
of ammunition and firepower.
 
In other areas, as he wrote on the social network,
the intensity of hostilities decreased --- and
"the 
active front line increased."
 
Syrsky also listed the main problematic issues for 
commanders of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
 at any level.
 
These, according to him, are the recruitment of units 
and subunits with "motivated and well-trained 
military personnel", as well as providing the 
Ukrainian army with modern air defense 
and electronic warfare systems to 
counter Russian drones.

Alaudinov is confident that the SVO 
will be completed --- in the Autumn
July 2nd, 10:12am
(Vesti.ru)
 
Major General Apty Alaudinov, Deputy head of the Main 
Military and Political Directorate of the Russian Armed 
Forces, and commander of the Akhmat special forces, 
believes that the special operation will be completed 
in the Autumn of this year.
 
According to TASS, Alaudinov is confident that the 
special military operation will end in the Autumn, 
and the Ukrainian side already knows about it.
 
In his opinion, the enemy understands that the conflict is 
coming to an end. The Major General cited the wife of 
Ukrainian President, Vladimir Zelensky, Olena 
Zelenskaya, as an example - who bought a 
luxury car with money earned during the 
war. However, according to Alaudinov, 
this will not help them.
 
Earlier it was reported that the Russian military struck
an airfield in Mirgorod, Poltava region ------ thus 
destroying five Ukrainian Su-27 fighters.

Greece - accuses Europe of 
instigating war in Ukraine
July 2nd, 10:02am
 (Prensa Latina) 
 
Instead of an initiative to establish a ceasefire in Ukraine 
and find a peaceful solution, Europe is implementing an 
increasingly aggressive policy of the conflict, former 
Greek Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis said
 on Tuesday.
 
During the presentation of his book, The Secret Archives 
of Karamanlis by journalist Manolis Kottakis, the former 
leader, who was quoted by the public television website
 ERTNews, accused the European nations of militarizing 
the region, due to Ukraine.
 
The unequivocal and ''unanimous'' condemnation of the 
so-called Russian invasion of Ukraine is not sufficient 
justification for adopting an increasingly aggressive 
and harsh attitude ------ towards the conduct and 
continuation of the war, Karamanlis said.
 
According to him, instead of finding a solution based on 
the Minsk agreement, Europe often exaggerates its 
behaviour, as a supporter of the war.
 
According to Karamanlis, this is likely to lead to a steady 
and dangerous escalation of the conflict, or to the 
search for a way out at a later date, but under 
even more unfavorable conditions.

For the West, it doesn't matter
what territories Ukraine 
will lose
July 2nd, 4:15am
(Vesti.ru)
 
"I am not at all happy with Zelensky's change of rhetoric, 
because we are entering a very dangerous period," 
says Spiridon Kilinkarov, an ex–deputy of the 
Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
 
Now... against the backdrop of a clear defeat on the 
battlefield and the election campaign in the United 
States, the West will try to convert all this into its 
political and diplomatic victory. How does this 
happen? First, they hold a "peace summit", 
change the formula for peace, and do 
everything... to attract as many 
countries as possible to the 
very process ----- that has 
already been launched. 
 
Zelensky at the same "peace summit" is bent on the idea
of agreeing to conduct some negotiations, that is, they 
force him ------ to abandon his categorical "no" to
negotiations. Certain goals change. In the
 information field of Ukraine.. the idea is 
already being thrown in that "yes, we 
have lost part of some territory, but 
we have preserved statehood. We 
still have the capital and access 
to the sea."
 
We have repeatedly said -- that there is a contradiction 
between the position of the West, the image of victory 
that the West could perceive, and the image of victory 
that Zelensky painted for the Ukrainian people. And 
for the West, to present victory to its electorate, it 
is quite enough to leave one street in the Lviv 
region, and preserve Ukrainian statehood. 
What territories Ukraine will lose - for
the 
West - does not matter at all,
the 
expert notes.
 
Today they are trying to lead us into such a trap, in what 
way? Just think about it – the very idea that was voiced 
by Zelensky regarding the negotiations. The danger of 
this stage is that it is completely unclear how it will 
actually work.
 
"I am not happy with either Arestovich or Moseychuk. 
Because I don't trust these people," says 
Spiridon Kilinkarov.
 
All these timid statements.... that there is some sound core
among the political elite of Ukraine, on the basis of which 
it will be possible to build political activity, are nonsense.
It's impossible. It is impossible to organize any political 
activity. The only way for Ukraine, even if it retains
its statehood – is if it is granted to the 
Russian Federation.
 
Because with what is happening now, there are 
two solutions. The first is capitulation with all 
its consequences. Although this also does 
not imply.. the elimination of Ukrainian 
statehood. It will be exclusively the 
right of Russia --- to preserve the 
state, as such. But then Russia 
will have the right to say what
this state should look like, in 
the face of defeat. Or - if the 
path that Zelensky followed
- fulfilling the tasks of the 
West, is continued, it is 
highly doubtful - that 
such statehood will 
remain, Kilinkarov 
emphasizes.
 
The continuation of the war, even from the point of view 
of those people... who advocate the preservation of 
Ukrainian statehood --- is the worst option. War is
the worst option for Ukraine. Maybe....  even the
path of capitulation - but with the preservation 
of statehood, gives at least some chance that 
there will be statehood, the state -- will be re-
established, there will be a new constitution, 
a new political elite. "But I think ---- it might
be 
better to abandon the political elite, 
rather than statehood?" - asks 
Spiridon Kilinkarov.
 
The West is already speculating about where the 
government-in-exile might be. Maybe in Poland. 
Or maybe somewhere in Central Europe.
 
"We don't mind. Create a government-in-exile wherever 
you want. Leave this country alone. Do you want to 
have regalia and positions? Have them, but leave 
Ukraine alone. Give them at least a breath of 
fresh air," Spiridon Kilinkarov sums up on 
the program "Evening with 
Vladimir Solovyov".

If Donald Trump wins the US presidential election, there 
will be a cease-fire in Ukraine and, sooner or later,

Viktor Orban ---- in an interview with M1 TV channel.
 
"If he wins, then at least there will be a cease-fire, 
whether this will lead to a lasting peace is the 
music of the future, but it will not be like this,
 that's for sure," the politician said.
 
At the same time, he added that Europe needs to think 
about who and how will represent its interests in 
this case.
 
Earlier, Trump promised to resolve
 the conflict in Ukraine.
 
Also in Reuters wrote that Trump intends 
to force Ukraine to negotiate.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian 
Federation told about the exploits of 
the Russian Armed Forces in the
 free defense zone
July 1st, 10pm
(Izvestia.ru)
 
The Defense Ministry said ----- that Lance Corporal Ignat 
Tolstikov, while performing the task of liberating one of 
the settlements controlled by Ukrainian militants - as 
part of a group of servicemen of the Russian Armed 
Forces, came under mortar fire. As a result, one of 
his colleagues received a shrapnel wound. 
 
Tolstikov found the wounded man, gave him first aid and 
dragged him to a natural depression in the ground, 
where he finished rendering assistance and 
prepared the victim for evacuation under 
the incessant shelling from the Armed 
Forces of Ukraine (AFU).
 
Thanks to his professionalism and ability to quickly 
navigate the situation, Tolstikov managed to save
 the life of a combat comrade, the Russian 
Defense Ministry said.
 
The military department also noted the merits of Private 
Andrey Razzhivin, a driver of a motorized rifle platoon.
 He performed tasks for the delivery of material and 
technical property to Russian servicemen. 
 
However --- the Armed Forces of Ukraine, seeking to 
deprive the units of the Russian troops of a timely 
and full supply of military-technical equipment -
attempted to destroy a column of Russian 
vehicles.... using rocket artillery. It also
included Private Razzhivin.
 
The serviceman managed to quickly orient himself in 
a difficult stop and timely withdraw his vehicle with 
ammunition.... from under the fire of the Armed 
Forces of Ukraine to a safe place, without 
allowing the enemy to defeat and 
detonate the ammunition.
 
 In addition, he helped a wounded comrade who received
 shrapnel wounds. Razzhivin took him to a shelter, gave
 him first aid ------ and handed him over to medics for
further 
evacuation to a medical centre.
 
The Russian Defense Ministry stressed that his 
competent and professional actions made it 
possible to save the life and health of the 
unit's servicemen, avoid detonation of 
ammunition --- keep the entrusted 
equipment and property in good 
condition, and replenish the 
material reserves of 
Russian units --- in 
a timely manner.
 
The Ministry of Defense reported that Sergeant Alexey 
Artemov, as part of the evacuation group of the 
motorized rifle division of the Russian Armed 
Forces, saved more than 300 colleagues in 
the area of the SVO.... for several months.
 
 In addition, he personally took out more than 30 
colleagues from under the fire of the Armed 
Forces of Ukraine (AFU).

Ukraine.... has appeared
July 1st, 9:51pm
(Izvestia.ru)
 
Scouts and rocket men of the Armed Forces of the 
Russian Federation in the course of joint work 
hit a cluster of aircraft of the Armed Forces 
of Ukraine (AFU). On July 1st, Izvestia 
obtained footage of the work of 
Russian military personnel.
 
Operators of reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicles 
--- for several days --- observed the movement of enemy 
equipment at Mirgorod airfield, located in the Poltava 
region of Ukraine. After a significant number of 
aircraft gathered at the airfield, the relevant 
information was passed on to the rocket
 men, and they sent Iskander-M there.
 
Ukrainian militants made attempts to quickly withdraw 
the surviving aircraft, but a second missile hit the 
military equipment, which again hit the 
AFU targets.
 
Earlier in the day, the Russian Defense Ministry reported 
that Russian military personnel, during the day, hit 
Ukrainian aircraft in an open parking lot and the 
infrastructure of a military airfield. In addition, 
the Ministry indicated that the repair and 
restoration complex of weapons and 
equipment of the Armed Forces of 
Ukraine, and storage sites for
 unmanned boats... were
 also affected.
 
The special operation to protect the Donbass, which 
Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on 
February 24th, 2022, continues. The decision 
was made.. against the background of the 
aggravation of the situation in the region

Finland authorized the U.S. 
to use its military bases
July 1st, 2:08pm
(Prensa Latina) 
 
The Parliament of Finland authorized today the security 
agreement signed in December with the United States 
regarding the use by Washington, of military bases
 in the EU country.
 
According to the public broadcaster YLE, the pact, 
officially called...... the Defense Cooperation 
Agreement (DCA), is part of the process 
of Helsinki’s accession to NATO.
 
The United States has such agreements -- with about 
twenty countries, and even Sweden, which recently 
ratified its accession to the Atlantic Alliance, has 
also ratified a similar text.
 
The proposal adopted a few months ago, includes the 
opening of up to 15 military bases in Finland to U.S. 
forces ---- which will be able to import their own 
equipment, supplies, material and military 
equipment to that territory.
 
Last June, however, Finland’s Constitutional Law 
Commission ruled that the DCA must receive 
the support of a qualified two-thirds 
majority in Parliament.
 
This is because the pact impinges on several aspects 
of the Magna Carta, as it defines the conditions for 
cooperation between Helsinki and Washington 
and allows the U.S. to operate in Finland 
without much bureaucracy, in crisis 
and peacetime situations.

General Podlesny: to deceive the Ukrainian 
Armed Forces, the Russian Armed Forces 
act differently --- all the time
July 1st, 10:01m
(Vesti.ru)
 
The commander of the army corps, Lieutenant General 
Vitaly Podlesny, told how the Russian military operates
 in the special operation zone to deceive the enemy.
 
Podlesny answered the question of journalist Vladimir 
Solovyov in the program "122nd week of the SVO" 
about how you can deceive the enemy if you 
have to act according to the situation.
 
"Demonstrative actions.. in a different direction. 
Somewhere we do this. Sometimes it happens 
that we were waiting for rain ---- on purpose. 
Specially waited for a strong wind when
the FPV drone can not fly. We must 
always act differently. Or on the 
equipment, on the equipment, 
on the equipment, once -
without equipment.'' 
 
''Motorcycles have all been mastered long ago, 
they throw on motorcycles," the general 
pointed out.
 
Podlesny noted that the Russian military still first enter 
the equipment, "so that there is somewhere to sit."
 
"We have... such a problem. First, we dismantle the enemy 
stronghold, knock out everything in the dugout, then we 
also go into them, since there is no time to dig in. After 
all what is the enemy doing? As soon as the battle for
 the stronghold begins..... they immediately begin to 
cover their own stronghold with cassettes, right 
away " the general said, adding that Ukrainian 
commanders do not worry about their 
soldiers, they can give instructions 
to "close in dugouts and just 
sit on top."
 
"And when we enter the dugouts... they are usually already 
destroyed and there is no place to sit there. And.. it turns 
out that either the equipment is specially installed there, 
under which you can sit until the night, then raise the 
logs there, restore or something else, or the 
equipment that, unfortunately, burned 
down - you can sit under it," 
concluded Podlesny.

General Podlesny: The Russian Armed Forces 
defeat the Ukrainian Armed Forces due to 
courage and high-precision weapons
July 1st, 9:48am
(Vesti.ru)
 
The Russian military in the area of the special operation 
defeat the enemy through courage and the use of high-
precision weapons, said the commander of the army 
corps, Lieutenant General Vitaly Podlesny.
 
"Due to the courage of Russian soldiers and officers, 
mainly due to the courage, due to the use of high-
precision weapons. Intelligence, weapons, 
courage, analysis & inventing new ways. 
Once on tanks, once on foot...  once at 
night on the offensive, & once during 
the day," Podlesny said in response 
to a question from journalist 
Vladimir Solovyov in the 
program "122nd week 
of the SVO" ...about 
how the Russian 
military is 
winning.
 
The Lieutenant General also spoke about the impact 
of the arrival of new Ukrainian conscripts to the
 front on the situation in the area of the SVO.
 
"Our last two or three attacks were successful. If earlier 
we attacked and there were cases repeatedly when an 
enemy machine-gunner in a strong point shoots to the 
end until he is killed, now, it turned out that we take 
either prisoners or finish off those who are already 
sitting in the dugout and either come out or don't
 come out," the military man said.

In Britain, they announced 
a shortage of aircraft to 
respond to Russia
June 30th, 12:11am
(Lenta.ru)
 
Britain has only four fighter jets ready to deploy
if Russia launches a nuclear strike, Air Marshal 
Greg Begwell told The Sun.
 
The former Air Force commander believes that 
the army will not be able to defend itself from
a significant attack by Russia, if the alleged 
strike is carried out in the near future. 
 
Only four Eurofighter Typhoons are ready to take 
off immediately. Two fighters are based at 
Lossiemouth in Scotland and two at 
Coningsby in Lincolnshire.
 
"Two decades of relative peace in the post-Cold War 
era meant that the UK, like most of the European 
NATO countries, did not invest in the army," the
 expert said. He believes that now the country 
does not have enough planes to respond 
to Russia.
 
Earlier, a report by the British Defense Committee said 
that the British Air Force... is experiencing a shortage 
of combat aircraft. They also do not have sufficient 
reserves in the case of a war with Russia.

Junior Sergeant Davletzyanov cleared
 the path of an armoured group of the 
Russian Armed Forces from mines
June 29th, 11pm
(Izvestia.ru)
 
Junior Sergeant Kamil Davletzyanov, driving a tank, 
cleared a path through a minefield for an armoured 
group of the Russian Armed Forces in the zone of 
a special military operation (SVO). 
 
The tank crew... conducted fire support for attack aircraft 
during the offensive, when the Armed Forces of Ukraine 
(AFU) tried to gain a foothold in new positions.
 
"Junior Sergeant Davletzyanov - driving a tank - made a 
maneuver and broke directly into the front line of the 
enemy's defense. Thanks to the sudden rush, the 
Russian tankers caught the enemy by surprise 
and began to destroy the Ukrainian militants 
at point-blank range -- preventing them from 
gaining a foothold and preparing defensive 
structures," the ministry said.
 
The Ukrainian Armed Forces tried to plant mines in the 
path of Russian armoured vehicles. This information 
was passed on to Davletzyanov. He --- despite the 
danger... made a safe passage in the minefields 
with the help of a mine trawl, thereby
allowing
 the armoured groups of
the Russian Armed 
Forces
to leave the territory
without losses.
 
Thanks to the actions of Junior Sergeant Davletzyanov, 
the tankers provided fire support to the advancing 
Russian assault groups, which significantly 
improved the position along the front line
 and consolidated their positions.
 
Also, the Defense Ministry told about the feat of the 
Guards senior sergeant Denis Khaprov, who 
disabled an armoured vehicle of the 
Armed Forces of Ukraine 
and caused damage to 
enemy personnel.
 
Assault units of the Russian Armed Forces were
 performing the task of suppressing AFU firing 
points when Russian intelligence detected a 
Ukrainian armoured personnel carrier with 
enemy infantry inside. 
 
Khaprov took up a firing position and hit the target with 
a grenade launcher, destroying the APC. After that, the
 senior sergeant opened fire with small arms, as a 
result of which five servicemen of the Armed 
Forces of Ukraine were eliminated.
 
Khaprov's competent actions made it possible to 
ensure the advance of Russian assault groups.

The waiter of a cafe in Sevastopol 
told about saving people from the 
beach during the attack of the 
Ukrainian Armed Forces
June 29th, 6:18pm
(Izvestia.ru)
 
Waiter Kirill Strupinsky, who worked in one of the cafes 
on the beach in Uchkuyevka, told Izvestia on June 29 
about how he saved several dozen people during
the 
attack of the Armed Forces of Ukraine  
on Sevastopol.
 
The young man explained that he came out from behind 
the bar when the shelling started and shrapnel began 
to fly into the cafe.
 
"At first I wanted to run, but a fragment flew in front of 
me. I lay down and asked if there were any wounded. 
I was told that there is," Kirill said.
 
Then he decided to take out about 15 people through
 the back entrance to the cafe. Then the waiter
 rushed to rescue the wounded. First.. he put 
a tourniquet from his own T-shirt.. on the 
wounded man's elbow. Then he helped 
the girl, who was shot in both thighs.
 
"My grandfather was seriously wounded, through and 
through. I covered his wounds with the remains of
T-shirt so that no blood would flow out," 
he continued.
 
After that, Kirill ran along the beach 
to find the wounded and help them.
 
Governor of Sevastopol Mikhail Razvozhaev has
announced the completion of the public 
notification system. 
 
According to him, first of all, it will be finalized 
taking into account ballistics. He added that 
the city's beaches will not be closed, but it 
is recommended to refuse to visit them.
 
On Sunday, June 23, the Ukrainian Armed Forces 
attacked Sevastopol with the help of American 
ATACMS missiles. Four people were killed,
 including two children, and another 
153 were injured. 
 
On the same day, it became known that among 
the dead was the daughter of the deputy 
mayor of Magadan, who was with her 
parents on the beach.
 
The Investigative Committee of Russia opened
a
 criminal case --- under Article 205 of
the Criminal 
Code of the Russian
Federation ("Terrorist act"). 
 
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova 
called the strike a ritual crime because Ukraine's attack 
took place on Holy Trinity Day. The Russian Defense 
Ministry noted ------ that the involvement of the US
does
 not raise any doubts, Washington and its 
satellites are engaged in inciting Kiev 
to kill Russian civilians.
 
Ukrainian militants are trying to strike at Russian
 territories against the background of a special 
operation in the Donbass, the beginning of 
which was announced on February 24,

Peter Kuznik, a professor in the Department of History 
and director of the Institute for Nuclear Research at 
the American University of Washington, said that 
the world is on the verge of a new Caribbean 
missile crisis.
 
According to Kuznik, the coming crisis is provoked not 
only by the start of Russia's special operation in
 Ukraine, but also..... by NATO's actions in
relation
 to this conflict.
 
"A direct confrontation between Russia and the alliance 
can really arise, and the Third World War becomes not 
just one of the possible nightmarish outcomes, but 
the end of human civilization," RIA Novosti 
quotes Kuznik --- with reference to The 
American Conservative.
 
Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry noted the increased
 intensity of flights of American strategic UAVs over the 
Black Sea ---- which increases the risk of a NATO 
confrontation with the Russian Federation.

Putin vows to consider deploying
 nukes near NATO countries
June 29th, 7:50am
(PressTV)
 
Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced his 
plan to consider placing new nuclear missiles near
 NATO countries.
 
Earlier this month, Putin warned the West that Moscow 
could supply arms to other countries to strike Western 
targets in retaliation for allowing Ukraine to fire long-
range missiles supplied by NATO countries’ military 
forces to hit targets inside Russia.
 
His latest announcement on Friday is seen as the Russian 
leader’s latest attempt ------ to respond to the escalated 
conflict with the West after signing a comprehensive 
strategic partnership pact during his landmark 
Pyongyang visit aimed at finding new ways 
to defend non-Western countries against
US hegemony.
 
Russia, North Korea fighting 
US hegemonic policy: Putin
 
The Russian president --- lashed out at the US 
and its allies over their schemes to change 
the objective of a multi-polar world.
 
Putin vowed that his nation would produce new 
intermediate-range nuclear-capable missiles, 
and then decide whether to deploy them 
within range of NATO nations in Europe,
 as well as US ally countries in Asia.
 
The Russian leader blamed the Russian move 
on the United States for deploying nuclear 
missiles in Europe and Asia.
 
During the US presidency of Donald Trump, 
Washington pulled out of the 1987 
Intermediate-Range Nuclear 
Forces Treaty (INF).
 
The INF treaty banned the production, testing, and 
deployment of land-based cruise and ballistic 
missiles with a range of 500 to 5,500 klms.
 
The withdrawal from the treaty was one in a series of 
treaty withdrawals that marked the end of decades 
of nuclear arms control treaties signed by 
Washington and Moscow over fears of 
launching a nuclear conflict between 
the former Soviet Union and the US.
 
The only arms treaty that remains to this day is
New START, which limits the intercontinental 
weapons each nation can maintain.
 
This nuclear arms reduction treaty between the US and 
Russia, formally known as Measures for the Further 
Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive 
Arms, was signed on April 8, 2010, went into 
force in February 2011, and expires in 
February 2026.
 
During the Cold War era, the US and the former Soviet 
Union slowly developed common views and interests, 
driving the two sides to sign treaties governing 
nuclear technologies and materials and to 
seek global cooperation and trade in 
nuclear energy while preventing 
weapons proliferation.
 
These treaties continued in the post–Cold War era 
despite a range of military issues arising across
 the global sphere amid increasingly conflicting 
interests in international commerce.
 
The West’s gradual encroachment on Russia, 
culminating in Moscow’s decision to launch 
a special military operation... in eastern 
Ukraine, in February 2022 ------ marked 
the end of the decades-long tradition 
of cooperation between Washington 
and Moscow to prevent a likely
 nuclear war between the 
two countries.

China, in August, will begin 
deployment of an analog 
of Starlink
June 29th, 4:30am
(Lenta.ru)
 
China in early August will begin deploying the G60 
satellite constellation, which should become an 
analog of the US Starlink system. This is
 reported by SpaceNews.
 
During the first launch, it is planned to send a batch of 18 
spacecraft to low-Earth orbit. The publication refers to 
the publication Shanghai Securities News, according 
to which in the coming days the first G60 satellites
 will leave the factory in Shanghai and go to the
 Taiyuan cosmodrome in northern China.
 
In November 2023...... SpaceNews reported, that China 
launched a Long March 2D rocket with a Yuanzheng 3 
upper stage and an unnamed number of spacecraft 
designed to test satellite Internet capabilities. 
 
The publication admitted --- that the launch was carried 
out as part of testing the capabilities of the promising 
satellite constellation Guowang, which is considered 
the Chinese "answer to Starlink".
 
In May, SpaceNews reported that China will ramp up 
production of medium-sized Long March 8 rockets
 to launch Guowang satellites.

The military commander predicted a "blow to 
the Ukrainians in the back" in one of the 
directions in the free defense zone.
June 29th, 2:44am
(Lenta.ru)
 
Military commander Sladkov predicted - a "stab in 
the back to the Ukrainians" and the encirclement 
of the Armed Forces of Ukraine ------ in Ugledar.
 
Ukrainians in the Ugledar direction are waiting for a
"stab in the back" (or rather, from the rear) --- and 
then a complete encirclement, or flight of units 
of the Armed Forces of the Republic (AFU). 
 
Such an outcome of the fighting on one of the front 
lines in the special operation zone (SVO) - was 
predicted by war correspondent Alexander 
Sladkov, in his Telegram channel.
 
"The Ugledar direction is one of the ten active ones 
on the front of the SVO. And we are pushing, but 
the breakthrough of the front is not yet real," 
Sladkov admitted. 
 
He clarified ---- that a frontal attack is not a 
priority of the Russian Armed Forces here.
 
For the success of the Russian military, it is necessary to 
advance the line of contact from Kurakhov and Karlovka. 
"And then - the encirclement, or flight of the AFU group
 in Ugledar," the military commander added.
 
Sladkov also showed footage of the T-80BFM tank of the 
Russian Armed Forces hitting the APU with direct fire in 
the Ugledar direction, draining the forest belt. He noted 
that the equipment has reinforced armour, is equipped 
with standard protective screens and is designed for 
use at night, under heavy fire.
 
Earlier, Alexander Sladkov said that Kiev's plan to 
replenish the ranks of the Ukrainian army at the 
expense of volunteers from among prisoners 
---- and thereby solve the problems of the 
shortage of personnel ---- is doomed to 
failure.... since they will suffer heavy 
losses in the special operation zone.

after a mortar attack
June 28th, 10pm
(Izvestia.ru)
 
The foreman of a motorized rifle company, ensign Igor 
Khokhlov, who was engaged in delivering various 
necessary supplies to the frontline servicemen 
of the Russian Federation's Armed Forces 
showed heroism ---- and saved the lives
of his 
wounded colleagues ------ the
Russian 
Defense Ministry reports.
 
Ukrainian militants discovered Khokhlov's transport - and 
subjected it to mortar fire, which caused the serviceman 
to be wounded, but he continued to direct the unloading, 
and then provided first aid not only to himself, but also 
to several colleagues. After that, Khokhlov evacuated
 the wounded soldiers and brought the transport out 
of the shelling.
 
The Russian Defense Ministry also told about the feat of 
Lieutenant Alexander Solovyov, who not only saved 
wounded colleagues, but also helped create 
conditions for the further advancement 
of the Russian Army.
 
During the battle -- an infantry fighting vehicle (BMP) of 
Russian attack aircraft was attacked by an FPV drone, 
as a result of which the commander of the assault 
group was injured. Solovyov took command and
 evacuated the wounded, after which he 
organized a defense at the captured 
stronghold of the Armed Forces 
of Ukraine (AFU).
 
"During the day, repelling attacks by Ukrainian militants 
& constantly inflicting significant losses on them, the 
group led by Lieutenant Alexander Solovyov held 
positions --- which made it possible to bring 
reserves into battle ....and push the 
enemy back," the ministry said.
 
Thanks to the courage and dedication of Lieutenant 
Solovyov, an important enemy stronghold was 
captured.. the lives of wounded servicemen 
were saved... and conditions were created 
for the further advance of Russian troops.

Putin pointed to a fairly rapid 
pace of recovery of the LPR
June 28th, 3:58pm
(Izvestia.ru)
 
The restoration of the Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) is 
proceeding quite rapidly, despite the fighting. This was 
stated on June 28 by Russian President Vladimir Putin 
during a video call with graduates of the personnel 
reserve program of the Higher School of Public 
Administration (VSGU) of the RANEPA.
 
"The Luhansk People's Republic, as well as our other 
new, but in fact historical territories of Russia, they 
are an integral part of the Russian Federation. The
 standard of living of people in these territories 
should fully correspond to the standard of 
living and opportunities in all areas 
throughout Russia," the head of
 state said.
 
According to Putin, this path is not easy, but there are 
all the conditions for it. He drew attention to the good 
industrial potential of the LPR, as well as the 
development of the region, despite the 
security problems.
 
The President added that enterprises 
have already started paying taxes, 
even to local and federal budgets.
 
The Russian leader also wished good luck to the new 
chairman of the LPR government, Yegor Kovalchuk.
 
All.. in the house: Putin instructed to restore 
the new regions, regardless of the situation.
 
The President at the opening of several social 
facilities called for the efficient use of each
 invested ruble.
 
In May, road curfew units of the Logistics Support 
brigade of the Zapad group of troops restored 
more than 150 km of highways and built 
about 20 km of new roads in the LPR.
 
In the same month, it was reported that the new regions 
are experiencing high rates of development. So, in the 
LPR and DPR -------- roads, infrastructure facilities, 
education, culture, sports and healthcare 
are being built, utility networks are 
being restored, and new houses 
are being built. 
 
According to local residents, Luhansk is becoming
one of the Russian centres ------ of attraction 
and transformation.

In the Verkhovna Rada declared 
problems with replenishment of
 the existing AFU brigades
June 28th, 2:24pm
(Izvestia.ru)
 
In the Armed Forces of Ukraine, there is a catastrophic 
situation with the replenishment of brigades. About it, 
on Friday, June 28, the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada 
Mariana Bezuglaya, wrote in the Telegram channel.
 
"About the catastrophic processes involving 
the replenishment of combat units and the 
thoughtless creation of new ones....... this 
approach also took place under Zaluzhny 
and ended in tragedies, in particular, in 
the southern counter-offensive," 
she said.
 
Bezuglaya stressed that, during the Ukrainian 
counteroffensive in the summer of 2023, 
"the non-combat-ready 10th corps of 
the mobilized advanced head-on"
in the Zaporozhye direction and 
achieved nothing,"except for 
deaths and the disposal of 
equipment & ammunition."
 
At the moment --- new units are being created again,
instead of replenishing existing units, for example,
the 125th Territorial Defense Brigade --- which 
has a staffing level of 40-50%, she noted.
 
"''Common sense" screams here that the creation of new 
brigades can be considered only after the guaranteed 
staffing of existing ones ------ and creating a trained 
reserve," Bezuglaya pointed out.
 
Earlier, on June 23, political analyst Alexander Dudchak, 
said that the failures of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on 
the line of contact and criticism in the Verkhovna Rada 
may lead to the resignation of the Commander-in-Chief 
of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Alexander Syrsky. 
 
In particular, Bezuglaya stated that the general's factions 
continue to ruin the future of Ukraine, and Syrsky is part 
of this process.
 
Earlier, on June 16, a retired German general and former 
head of the NATO military committee, Harald Kuyat, 
called the situation hopeless - for the Ukrainian 
Armed Forces at the front. According to him,
for too long the West has harboured the
illusion.... that it is possible to help 
Ukraine win with new weapons, 
but this --- is not the case.
 
In early June, Syrsky said that the situation is difficult for 
the Ukrainian Armed Forces on a number of sectors of 
the front. He noted that the situation has worsened 
most in the Kharkiv, Kurakhovsky, Pokrovsky and 
Kupyansky directions.
 
The special operation to protect the Donbass, which 
Russian President Vladimir Putin, announced on
 February 24, 2022, continues. The decision 
was made against the background of the 
worsening situation in the region.
