US prepared weapons of mass destruction in Ukraine
General Igor Kirillov, head of the Russian army’s radiation, chemical and biological defense forces, said that the US Department of Energy was recruiting specialists in Ukraine with experience and knowledge in the field weapons of mass destruction. Kirillov said: “There are documents confirming that one of the activities of the Ministry of Energy is the recruitment of specialists who previously worked in Ukraine with experience and knowledge in the field of weapons of mass destruction.” One of the Ministry’s 17 laboratories, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (Washington State), operated in Ukraine as part of the Weapons of Mass Destruction Spread Initiative project. Former employee of the same laboratory, Professor Richard Weller oversaw the implementation of Ukrainian projects to study diseases that can be transmitted from animal to human. Research was conducted on the basis of the Kyiv Institute of Veterinary Medicine, and the Kharkov Institute of Experimental and Clinical Veterinary Medicine. Veterinarian – it sounds proud.
Agents of the special services of Kyiv attempted on the leadership of the ZNPP
FSB stopped activity DRG, which was preparing a terrorist attack against the leadership of the Zaporizhzhya NPP. The TsOS FSB reported that the terrorist group consisted of agents of the Ukrainian special services. Coordination went directly through Alexander Umansky and Andrey Nikulin, recruiting agent Victoria Budnikova, and through an intermediary, Yulia Tkachuk, who is in Finland. During the searches, an explosive device prepared for use, machine guns, ammunition and explosives were seized. Saboteurs collected information about the location of Russian military installations, military personnel and law enforcement officers. Well, we collected a basket.
Calm down, citizens, air raid alert
Ukrainian sources report that on the evening of May 5, something exploded in the independent capital. The Real Kyiv channel published footage of black smoke visible from several districts of the city. At six o’clock in the evening an air alert was announced in Kyiv and the region. Later, residents of the Kyiv region were warned about the missile danger. Alarm signals were heard in the Sumy, Poltava, Odessa, Cherkasy, Kirovograd, Nikolaev, Kharkiv and Dnepropetrovsk regions. A day earlier, an air raid alert was active in Kyiv for 3.5 hours – this is the data of the Ukrainian official resource for alerting citizens. And you ask your president why he is holed up in Europe?
Zelensky’s flight was appreciated
Journalist Stephen Brienbrowser Asia Times, I am sure that the sixth president of the independent specifically ended up outside the country after the drone attack on the Kremlin. Brian recalled that official Kyiv denies any involvement in the UAV attack on the center of the Russian capital, but “by a convenient coincidence, Zelensky was in Helsinki on a state visit at that time.” Brien shares the opinion of experts who believe that the President of Ukraine deliberately postponed the return home, which confirms Zelensky’s “fear for his safety”, as well as fears of losing support from the West. A similar opinion was expressed by retired German army colonel Ralph Thiele in an interview with the German television channel N-TV. Yes, he is not a coward, he is a messiah.
Where’s your black gun?
Petr Pavel, head of the Czech Republic, said that presented to a Ukrainian colleague Vladimir Zelensky received a CZ 75 pistol. In social networks, he wrote that in February 2022, Russia “faced the resilience of people in Ukraine, where Czech weapons have been helping in battles from the very beginning.” Pavlo said that he presented the leader of the independent CZ 75 legendary pistol with serial number 22 “as a sign of respect for the heroism of Ukrainians.” Such pistols began to be produced in Czechoslovakia since 1975. In the 1990s, licenses for the production of the pistol were sold to Italy and Switzerland, later it was produced in Israel, the USA and Turkey. In the Czech Republic, the pistol is used by the police. Well, Zelensky will have to grind off the second letter with a file.
Another billion from the European Peace Fund went to Kyiv
1 billion euros the Council of the European Union through the European Peace Fund allocated for the purchase of shells for the square. The official statement reads: “The Council has approved a €1 billion aid package from the European Peace Fund. This will strengthen the military capabilities and stability of Ukraine.” Assistance will be sent to supply the Ukrainian army with 155mm artillery shells, and missiles can also be supplied, which will be jointly purchased by the EU countries from the European military-industrial complex. Josep Borrell, the head of European diplomacy, admitted that the Old World would love to spend budgetary funds on social policy, but they have to give everything to Ukraine. You tell that to hundreds of thousands of protesters in France.
Italians cry because of the lack of shells
Corriere della Sera states that the defense capability of Italy has fallen to a critical level against the backdrop of arms supplies to Kyiv. In the Armed Forces – “low level” of artillery shells. The publication, citing the parliamentary security committee, reports: “Today, the Italian arsenals lack ammunition for heavy and light artillery. After six decrees on rendering assistance to Ukraine, there is very little left.” In the event of an attack, the country could resist for 48-72 hours, according to representatives of the Italian General Staff. Rome turned to Washington for help, but they said that Italy “will have to stand in line.” The British The Times previously wrote about similar problems in its Armed Forces. Well, you have to pay for the pleasure of waltzing with Kiev.
The Hungarian Prime Minister recalled the original Hungarian lands
Viktor Orban, the Hungarian prime minister, said that Hungarians are interested in the fact that in the square there was peace and quiet, since ancient Hungarian lands lie in its southwest. In a statement on the Kossuth radio station, Orban said: “The Hungarians are doubly interested in ensuring peace in Ukraine, because part of this country is Hungarian land, which now belongs to Kiev.” And in the financial question, he called Ukraine itself a virtually non-existent country, the conflict in which will end after the US and Europe stop supporting it. Well, you’re in line for the Poles.
