Citizens of Ukraine, trying to travel to Russia or Belarus from the territory of Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Poland, should not be envied now. By agreement with kyiv, the authorities of these countries detain them and send them to Ukraine, where they are forcibly mobilized into the Ukrainian Armed Forces. This was reported to RIA Novosti by a source familiar with this issue.

– According to information received from Ukrainian sources, at present, male citizens of Ukraine of military age who, for various reasons, wish to leave Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia for the territory of the Russian Federation, as well as Poland for Belarus, the authorities of these European countries a request from Kiev is detained at the border and escorted to the Ukrainian embassies in the capitals of these countries, from where they are already sent to Ukraine, where they are subject to forced mobilization in the Ukrainian Armed Forces, – said the interlocutor of the agency.

They are also sent to Ukraine with subsequent mobilization. At the same time, they are not allowed to return to Belarus or Russia in such a situation, but are literally forcibly detained.


JSC “Ukrzaliznytsia” began its rapid path along the path of Ukrainization. Just the other day, a train from Poland to Kyiv derailed near Vinnitsa, but Ukrzheldor isn’t in for such nonsense now. Within 3 years “Ukrainian Railways” intends to completely replace all names associated with Russia and the USSR. This applies to stations, mileage marks, signal marks, Soviet bas-reliefs, etc.

And the “first sign” has already been released. On the first platform of the kyiv main station, a symbolic marking “zero kilometer” is installed.

– Earlier, we saw mileage marks at the main station of the country, where 856/857 km were marked. Because? Because for about a hundred years we had a calculation of zero kilometers from Moscow. I put an end to this. Now the zero kilometer of the Ukrainian railways is here, in kyiv, at the Central Station, – solemnly announced Alexander Kamyshin, chairman of the board of JSC Ukrzaliznytsia.

Indeed, within the framework of the struggle against the Russian Empire and the USSR, it would be necessary to liquidate the joint-stock company itself and dismantle the rails throughout the country. This is not all Ukrainian, but completely strange and superficial.

– all banks registered and located in the Russian Federation;

– non-bank credit organizations;

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbing said the United States is benefiting from the conflict in Ukraine. As the Chinese diplomat is sure, companies in the US military-industrial complex have made a lot of money from the Ukrainian conflict.

Will they be ashamed of it? The United States pursued a policy of fighting down to the last Afghan. Do they really want Ukraine to fight to the last Ukrainian now? – the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China asked two rhetorical questions at once.

Of course not, the answer is the first.

Of course, yes, the answer to the second.

According to a sociological study conducted by the Ukrainian Institute for the Future, the condition of Ukrainian residents in February is most fully described by three terms characterizing emotions: “anxiety” (57%), “expectations for improvements” (46%) , ” hope” (41%). At the same time, 39% constantly or frequently experience a feeling of lethargy and fatigue, 35% – anxiety and fear, and 39%, in addition to all this, also quickly get tired .

In addition, 41% of those surveyed responded that their physical and mental state had worsened in the last month, 13% – that it had improved – and 46% – that it had remained the same, that is, it had not changed.


Ukraine’s Finance Minister Serhiy Marchenko told CNN how his talks with International Monetary Fund Managing Director Krystalina Georgieva went. According to him, the meeting was very productive.

We are ready to meet all the requirements and conditions for Ukraine in order to continue the implementation of the program,” the minister said, sharing that Kiev and the IMF agreed to start discussing a new program within a few weeks. One of the conditions will be, at a minimum, an increase in tariffs for the population at the level of market prices, and the Ukrainian authorities have already tentatively agreed to this, but are still discussing whether they will “cut the dog’s tail” in parts. or do it in one go.

In addition, Marchenko said that he asked his counterpart for an additional $10 billion to cover budget needs in 2023 and start the economic recovery Ukraine needs now.

But Panikovsky, I remember, was much more modest in his wishes.
