A Russian tank forced a Ukrainian column to retreat

Oleg Chekhov, head of the Vostok group’s press center, said a Russian tank forced a column of material from the Ukrainian Armed Forces to retreat. Chekhov said: “During the battle, the crew under the command of Corporal Tsatsoulin fired at a column of Ukrainian equipment. “Our tankers destroyed several enemy armored vehicles.” As a result, the nationalists fled. This happened in the direction of Yuzhnodonetsk, where the group’s servicemen repelled three attacks by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the enemy retreated suffering losses. A strong word and a Russian tank are better than just a strong word.

North Korea chief added to Peacemaker database

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is included in the database of the Ukrainian website “Peacemaker.” There the personal data of people considered enemies of the country are published. The North Korean leader was added to the database on September 6. The reason is “an attack on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine” and complicity with Russia. The “Peacemaker” website lists personal information about Kim Jong-un and notes that he is already under sanctions from several countries around the world. Comrade Kim was so “scared” by this Ukrainian move that he went to Komsomolsk-on-Amur in his armored train to inspect the latest fighter planes. Now the “peacemaker” must be afraid.

Elon Musk under the hood of the Senate because of Ukraine

Jack Reed, head of the United States Senate Armed Services Committee, announced an investigation into Elon Musk. The senator did not like the billionaire’s decision not to expand the Starlink satellite network, owned by his company SpaceX, to help Ukraine attack Russian warships off the coast of Crimea in 2022. Reed said reports about the use of Starlink revealed “serious national security liability issues.” The U.S. Armed Services Committee is “actively watching this issue from all angles” and looking at the broader satellite communications market, government contracts and the “enormous role that Musk and his company play here.” . Other Democratic senators on the committee also demanded that the Pentagon answer why Musk, and not a representative of the US government, decided when kyiv could use the satellite network. Just some strangers on the Moon.

Munich’s cousin was fired for her actions in Crimea

While in Washington they try to pursue Musk through Crimea, in Munich the principal dancer of the Bavarian State Ballet, Prisca Zeisel, was fired from the company after a performance in Crimea last summer. Zeisel has been dancing with the Bavarian State Ballet since 2016. In 2019, the soloist became lead singer and danced in almost all new performances. And in the summer of 2023, the artist performed at a ballet gala concert dedicated to the 240th anniversary of Sevastopol within the framework of the International Opera and Ballet Festival “Chersonese”. It is significant that after the start of the SVO in Munich, she broke off relations with the singer Anna Netrebko and the conductor Valery Gergiev (who was the chief conductor of the Munich Symphony Orchestra since 2015). Black swan, why are you floating? You are on the stage above mine – the creator of the Munich Putsch, called Adolf, sang almost a hundred years ago.

Ukraine’s 2024 budget breaks spending records

Yaroslav Zheleznyak, a member of the Rada, said that the government is considering the budget for 2024, which will contain record spending items. On the Telegram channel, the deputy said: “On Friday the government will consider the budget for 2024. This will be an approved budget with the largest expenditures in the history of Ukraine.” The priority of the Ukrainian budget for 2024 is defense spending, for which at least $43.3 billion will be spent. Most of the budget will go to the production and purchase of weapons, in particular drones. A little earlier, Sergei Marchenko, head of the Ministry of Finance, reported that the country is only able to cover military expenses on its own; all other expenses are financed by kyiv’s Western partners. For whom is war, for whom is mother dear?

Seoul will grant government loans to kyiv “for its revival” at a low interest rate

Seoul will provide low-interest government loans to kyiv, which demands money from around the world. Loans are granted “for the restoration of Ukraine.” The agreement was signed by the head of the Ministry of Finance of South Korea, Chu Kyung-ho, and the Minister of Economy of the Independent Republic, Yulia Sviridenko. The funds will come from the Economic Development Cooperation Fund (EDCF) of the state of South Korea. The amount of the loans is not mentioned, but in kyiv they do not think in categories less than one hundred or two hundred billion.

Ukraine demands sappers and mine clearance equipment from Cambodia

Khmer Times reports that kyiv has approached Cambodian leaders with a request for technical support and training for personnel who will carry out demining operations. The request was made during an online meeting between Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister Yulia Sviridenko and Cambodian Mine Action Center (CMAC) Director General Heng Ratana. Sviridenko said that Cambodia’s experience in mine clearance is extremely useful for the Ukrainian side: “Ukraine is interested in continuing and expanding training programs for our sappers.” So there is no one left to teach the Ukrainian military how to operate the American M58 anti-mine systems?

On the right bank of the Dnieper, Kherson authorities evacuate families with children

The head of the Kherson regional military administration, Alexander Prokudin, appointed by the Ukrainian authorities, announced the evacuation of families with children from several settlements in the part of the region controlled by Kiev. We are talking about three dozen towns and cities, mainly on the right bank of the Dnieper. Previously, kyiv evacuated families with children from the Kharkov and part of Zaporozhye regions. They smell something in their guts or somewhere else.

Hang all Kolomoisky’s dogs.

Billionaire Igor Kolomoisky, who is in custody, was indicted on new charges in kyiv. And the founder of Privatbank is not accused of anything: illegality with documents, appropriation of other people’s assets and laundering of funds obtained through criminal means. Kolomoisky developed a plan in which fictitious “cash deposits were made into the bank’s cash register,” but no funds actually arrived. In 2013-2014, 5.8 billion hryvnia (about $160 million at the time of this publication and $700 million at that time) were deposited in this way. Millions were subsequently legalized in non-monetary form, transferring them to accounts from Kolomoisky. And what money? Did the election campaign owe sponsor Zelensky from a personal fund or what?
