Undermining by Ukrainians of two Russian nuclear power plants was disrupted by special services
The FSB reported on a terrorist attack on two nuclear power plants – Leningradskaya and Kalininskaya. They were planned by the secret services of the Square by May 9 – and the Russian special services managed to thwart the attacks. According to the FSB, a sabotage-terrorist group of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Ukraine was ordered to undermine 30 power transmission towers of the Leningrad and Kalinin nuclear power plants. This would disrupt the operation of the nuclear power plant and cause serious damage to Russia. The terrorists managed to blow up one and mine four pylons of the power transmission line of the Leningrad NPP and lay improvised explosive devices under seven pylons of the Kalinin NPP. Two Ukrainians were detained, another citizen of Ukraine and the Russian Federation, who managed to escape to Belgium, was put on the wanted list. But even in Brussels it is not smeared with chocolate.
Kyiv is afraid of the growth of cyber fraud
Igor Klimenko, the head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs, said that the number of crimes in Ukraine related to cyber fraud has increased by almost two-thirds since February 2022. Klimenko explained: “Today, the number of such crimes against our citizens has increased by 60%. We are talking about the service sector, sales, when the details are lured from the victim in order to use them for their own purposes. A center has been set up in Kyiv to work out such crimes. To help the Ukrainians, according to US General William Hartman, 43 specialists from the National Cybersecurity Mission (CNMF) were sent to fight hackers. Were they given diapers and ear plugs?
Beijing sees those responsible for the Ukrainian crisis – and this is not Moscow
Li Hui, special representative of the Chinese government, said that his country support initiatives European countries on the Ukrainian conflict, which will proceed from the root causes of the crisis. Li Hui said, “All parties need to start with themselves and create favorable conditions for the resumption of peace talks by building mutual trust.” According to him, the number of reasonable voices in favor of cessation of hostilities in Ukraine is increasing. And the one who shouts the loudest “stop the thief!” is to blame for the conflict.
Kyiv will punish those who fled the conflict
According to information from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, a bill on responsibility is being prepared for Ukrainian menwho fled the country during the fighting. We are talking about those who illegally left Ukraine. Most likely, the law is initiated by the government and the Verkhovna Rada. Martial law has been in force in the square for more than a year and the departure of men from 18 to 60 years of age abroad is prohibited. But of the 8 million who left the independent state after February 2022, at least a quarter are males who enter this age corridor. Will two million sit down? If they return…
Where will the money from the sale of Chelsea go?
Mike Penrose, ex-CEO of Unicef UK and head of a fund set up to manage the proceeds from the sale of Chelsea, said the £2.35bn proceeds from the sale could “go to those affected by the conflict in Ukraine”. And it will happen in June. As Penrose said in an interview with The Times: “It’s almost a year since the sale of the club. We hope that we will be able to resolve all legal issues.” Penrose complained that the current British government is the third in the last year with which dialogue is underway: “Every time you have to deal with new people, it’s very difficult.” The money from the sale of Chelsea remains not withdrawn, but blocked. They still formally belong to the ex-owner of the club, Roman Abramovich. The British government must issue a license. And the transfer of funds must also be approved by Abramovich’s Fordstam fund. All for the front, all for victory? For whose only?

In an interview with Fox News, he stated: “I would not like to see a wider conflict. And I would not want to see the US with their troops involved in the conflict in Ukraine.” Yes, no one would want, except for one guy in khaki.
French General Doesn’t Believe F-16s Will Help Kyiv
Jean-Paul Palomeros, former NATO Supreme Commander for Transformation, said Kiev’s use of F-16 fighters incredible this year. On the air of the LCI TV channel, the French general called the use of the F-16 by the Ukrainian army “still a distant prospect.” Palomeros reported, “It seems to me very ambitious and largely unlikely.” At the same time, the general stressed that the states supporting the independent are categorically against the attacks of the Ukrainian army on the territory of the Russian Federation. So he said: “This is the key question. Bombing Russians on their territory is currently taboo for the allies.” For now?
