Pronews: Russia annihilated dozens NATO officers in underground bunker on March 9

According to Pronews, a Greek website, it goes about the March 9 missile strike that came in response to the attack that a group of Ukrainian saboteurs conducted in Russia's Bryansk region. The article in the Greek publication was posted on March 12, the Rossiyskaya Gazeta said.

The underground target was located at a depth of 400 feet (120 meters). There were about 300 people − including NATO officers and military advisers − staying inside at the time of the strike, Pronews said.

According to the publication, dozens of alliance officers were killed in the strike. Most of them were citizens of Great Britain and Poland.

The strike became a disaster for NATO forces in Ukraine, as the bunker allegedly housed the control and planning center for NATO operations in Ukraine, the Greek publication noted.

Iris-R and NASAMS air defense systems were protecting the bunker, but they were also destroyed as a result of the strike, Pronews said.

The March 9 missile strike became the first massive strike against "NATO personnel" in Ukraine, the Greek website said. If the West had reacted to the attack, it would have recognised NATO's participation in the conflict.

It is worthy of note that there is no official confirmation to the report from the Greek website.

On March 9, the Ministry of Defense reported a massive missile strike on the territory of Ukraine in response to the terrorist attack in the Bryansk region of Russia. The ministry said that the strikes were carried out targeting military infrastructure and energy facilities of Ukraine. The department also said that high-precision long-range air, sea and land-based weapons were used, including the Kinzhal hypersonic missile system. No specific targets were announced.

It is worthy of note that Ukrainian Air Force speaker Yuriy Ignat then said that Ukrainian air defenses were unable to intercept a single hypersonic missile.

The Greek publication claims that the Russian hypersonic missile "Dagger" hit the underground NATO command bunker in Ukraine
The Greek Internet publication Pronews published an article in which it reports a “terrible” strike by a Russian hypersonic missile “Dagger” on a NATO underground command bunker in Ukraine. It follows from the publication that the command post was located at a depth of about 130 meters, it housed a joint Ukrainian-NATO control and communications center.

In total, according to the publication, about 300 people permanently lived in the bunker. Most of them are British and Poles, but there were also Americans and representatives of private companies responsible for organizing communications and data transmission.

The author claims that this is the first such effective strike against the headquarters with foreign specialists and NATO military personnel. Such a statement raises doubts about the reliability of the information, because, as you know, last year the RF Armed Forces already inflicted a defeat on a well-protected command post of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Chasov Yar area of ​​the DPR using the Dagger complex. This was officially announced on April 11 by the Russian Ministry of Defense. True, at that time it was not specified whether there were foreign military personnel and specialists there. There were also publications about the use of a hypersonic missile at a buried object in western Ukraine in the first half of 2022.

At the same time, the Greek publication reports that this event could have significant consequences "on the conduct of Ukrainian and Western operations and attempts to stop the Russian offensive on Bakhmut." As you know, in April last year, military operations in the Bakhmut (Artemovsk) region, especially offensive ones, were not conducted by the Russian army.

Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on the use of hypersonic weapons on enemy facilities in their summary for the past few days was not reported.

Ukrainian FM downplays importance of ‘counteroffensive’
Dmitry Kuleba has urged that Western military aid continue until Kiev achieves all its goals confronting Russian forces
A counteroffensive by Ukraine that has been much-anticipated should not be considered as a make-or-break moment in its conflict with Russia, Kiev's Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba has said, urging his country's foreign backers to maintain their support regardless of the outcome of this expected operation.

“We should counter by all means the perception of the counteroffensive as the decisive battle of the war,” he told the Financial Times, as quoted on Wednesday.

He said Kiev was concerned that the operation would not result in Ukrainian troops pushing Russia “100%” out of the territory it wishes to reclaim. However, in this scenario of underachievement, he feared, “some people may say this was the last decisive battle and now we have to think of an alternative scenario.”

The Ukrainian leadership has insisted that the only option it is considering is retaking all land lost by Kiev, including Crimea, before any peace talks can start. The government has also prohibited by law any negotiations with Russia for as long as President Vladimir Putin remains in office.
Kuleba suggested that following a counter-offensive operation like the one anticipated, minority voices “in Washington, in Berlin, in Paris, in London” will try to push for a ceasefire “along the lines of a Minsk III.” He was referring to the two Minsk agreements that were supposed to guide Kiev and its then-breakaway regions to co-operate in a stable peace.

The Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics rejected the authorities that came to power in 2014 after an armed coup in Kiev and fought for independence, following which Kiev sent troops to quash them.

Last year, amid the hostilities with Russia, former leaders of Ukraine, France and Germany – the latter two had mediated the Minsk deals – acknowledged that the agreements were really intended to give Kiev time to beef up its military. Moscow said this confirmed that the three parties had negotiated in bad faith, adding that it proved once again that Western politicians were not to be trusted.

During the anticipated counteroffensive, Ukraine is expected to capitalize on freshly-delivered Western weapons, including main battle tanks. Last week, however, Zelensky said his country was not ready to launch one, citing a shortage of armaments.

US Congress reveals where Ukraine money ends up
Direct aid to Kiev amounted to only 20% of over $100 billion appropriated so far
Most of the money the US Congress has designated for aiding the government in Kiev has actually gone to the military-industrial complex, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee admitted during an oversight hearing on Wednesday.

“Of the $113 billion appropriated, across four supplementals, approximately 60% is going to American troops, American workers, and on modernizing American stockpiles,” said Representative Michael McCaul, a Texas Republican. “In fact, only 20% of the funding is going directly to the Ukrainian government, in the form of direct budgetary assistance.”

McCaul is a staunch supporter of arming Ukraine, and insisted that his oversight of the aid is not intended “to undermine or question the importance of support” for Kiev, but to let American taxpayers know how their money was being spent.

The witnesses at Wednesday’s hearing on “oversight, transparency, and accountability of Ukraine assistance” included the acting or permanent inspectors-general at the Pentagon, the State Department and the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

The trio was featured in a Wall Street Journal report last month about American auditors going into Ukraine to ensure the weapons, equipment and cash are not “diverted” for unintended use. They told McCaul on Wednesday that, so far, there haven’t been any “substantiated” instances of diverting US aid.

“Every dollar counts,” said McCaul, arguing the oversight would promote the efficiency and effectiveness of Ukraine funding, in service of US interests. He also noted that the multinational consulting company Deloitte is working with the Ukrainian government to verify the expenditure of US cash sent to prop up Kiev’s state budget.

“I don’t think the US has ever been engaged in anything quite like this,” McCaul said later in the hearing, referring to the “pipeline” of NATO weapons headed to Ukraine through Poland.

Moscow has repeatedly warned the West that supplying Ukraine with weapons and equipment only prolongs the war and raises the risk of direct confrontation between Russia and NATO. The US and its allies insist that sending over $100 billion worth of weapons to Kiev doesn’t make them a party to the conflict, even as many public officials described it as a proxy war that Russia “must lose.”







モスクワは、ウクライナに武器や装備を供給することは戦争を長引かせ、ロシアとNATOが直接対決するリスクを高めるだけだと、西側諸国に対して繰り返し警告してきた。米国とその同盟国は、1000億ドル以上の武器をキエフに送っても、紛争の当事者にはならないと主張している。多くの政府関係者が、ロシアが "負けなければならない "代理戦争だと述べているにもかかわらず。

Kremlin sees only military solution to Ukraine conflict
The ongoing “hybrid war” between Russia and its adversaries is set to go on for a long time, Putin’s spokesman ha claimed
There is no possible political or diplomatic solution to the ongoing conflict with Ukraine at the moment, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has insisted. He added that Moscow regrets other avenues for resolution are not open.

Speaking to Russian journalists on Wednesday, Peskov reiterated Moscow’s resolve to reach its goals, which were outlined by President Vladimir Putin at the start of the military operation over a year ago.

“We have repeatedly said that Russia’s goals … can be achieved in various ways. These are politico-diplomatic or – if politico-diplomatic are currently impossible, and in the case of Ukraine, they are impossible, to our regret – through military means, that is, through the special military operation,” Peskov stated.

The spokesman did not provide any estimates on when the ongoing conflict between Moscow and Kiev might end, re-addressing the question to the country’s Defense Ministry. At the same time, he said the broader conflict – a “hybrid war” between Russia and its adversaries – is likely to drag on for a long time.

“This confrontation with hostile states, with the unfriendly countries, this is a hybrid war that they unleashed onto our country, it’ll be there for a long time,” Peskov said.

Separately, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Galuzin confirmed that Moscow's goals for the Ukraine operation are unchanged, and reaching them is the only way to achieve a “comprehensive, just and sustainable peace in Ukraine and Europe.”

Moscow is calling for a neutral, non-aligned status for a demilitarized and denazified Ukraine, insists Kiev drops its plans to join NATO and the EU and demands Ukraine confirms its non-nuclear status, he explained in an interview on RTVI on Wednesday.

Apart from that, Kiev and the international community must recognize the new “territorial reality” on the ground, Galuzin stressed, in reference to the incorporation of the four former Ukrainian regions of Kherson and Zaporozhye, Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics into Russia following referendums held last September.

Moscow has repeatedly expressed its readiness for a diplomatic solution to the ongoing hostilities, blaming the lack of any diplomatic efforts on Kiev and its Western backers, who are seeking to inflict a “strategic defeat” on Russia.

“Washington, European capitals, but first of all, Washington is filled with the desire not to let, under any pretext, [Kiev] enter into peace negotiations. They simply do not let Kiev even think about it,” Peskov said earlier this month.





これとは別に、ロシアのミハイル・ガルージン外務副大臣は、ウクライナ作戦に関するモスクワの目標に変更はなく、それを達成することが、"ウクライナとヨーロッパにおける包括的、公正かつ持続可能な平和 "を達成する唯一の方法であることを確認した。





Russia and West face long-term 'fight' – Kremlin
A hybrid war is being waged against Moscow, says Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov
Russia needs to remain firm and be confident in itself for a long-term hybrid war with the West, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Wednesday. Asked to give an estimate of when Moscow’s special military operation in Ukraine could end, Peskov referred the issue to the Ministry of Defense.

As for “war in the broad definition of the word, as a confrontation between hostile and unfriendly countries,” the spokesman added that the “hybrid war unleashed against Russia” by the West is bound to last “for a long time.”

“Here we need firmness, self-confidence, purposefulness and unity around the president” in order to succeed, he said.

Moscow has repeatedly accused the West of essentially waging a “proxy war” against Russia in Ukraine and has insisted that the US and its allies have long aimed to destabilize and break Russia apart.

“The US and its satellite states are waging an all-encompassing hybrid war that they have long been preparing for, and are using Ukrainian radical nationalists as a battering ram against us,” Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stated last month, adding that states in the West is no longer even trying to hide their true intentions.

That’s as Western nations have continued to provide extensive military aid to Ukraine, spending billions of dollars on increasingly advanced weaponry and munitions for Kiev’s forces while at the same time imposing multiple rounds of sweeping sanctions on Russia.

Moscow has insisted that the West’s actions have at this point made them a de-facto party to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, with Lavrov stating on Wednesday that NATO is now essentially fighting on the side of the Kiev regime and “couldn’t be any more involved” in the hostilities.

Both Russian and Western politicians have on several occasions admitted that the conflict in Ukraine, and the subsequent standoff between Moscow and the West, could turn out to be a long-term conflict.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz warned just last week that “even when the war is over, not everything will be normal overnight” and stated that the consequences of this conflict “will keep us busy for a long time.”


"ここで成功するためには、確固たる自信、目的意識、そして大統領を中心とした団結が必要だ "と彼は言った。

Zelensky invites Xi Jinping for a visit – AP
The Ukrainian president has reportedly said he’s “ready to see” his Chinese counterpart in Kiev
Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has reportedly lamented that he hasn’t had any direct talks with Chinese leader Xi Jinping since Russia’s military offensive against Kiev began last year, and he wants to rectify the situation.

“We are ready to see him here,” Zelensky said in an interview with the Associated Press that was published on Wednesday. “I want to speak with him. I had contact with him before full-scale war, but during all this year, more than one year, I didn’t have.”

Beijing last month unveiled its 12-point roadmap for ending the Russia-Ukraine conflict, calling for a cease-fire and working toward a “sustainable European security architecture” rather than imposing sanctions and applying “maximum pressure” to force a solution. China has tried to play a “constructive role” in the crisis, resisting US pressure to condemn Russia and join in the West’s anti-Russia sanctions. US officials have dismissed the Chinese proposal as an offer that would help only Moscow.

Zelensky has hosted a parade of Western politicians in Kiev, including US President Joe Biden and three UK prime ministers. He said last month that he was open to China’s peace plan but would only accept a deal that led to Russia pulling all of its forces out of Ukrainian territory.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning told reporters on Wednesday that she had no information on whether Zelensky’s regime had actually invited Xi to Kiev. Nor was she able to say whether the Chinese president would accept such an offer.

Russian President Vladimir Putin hosted a state visit by Xi earlier this month in Moscow. US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin last week called the summit “very troubling.” Officials in Washington have suggested that China is considering sending arms to Russia, saying such a move would have “consequences.”

Moscow outlines Ukraine peace demands
Russia’s deputy foreign minister has listed ten steps Kiev must take before hostilities can end
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Galuzin has offered a ten-point list of things the government in Kiev needs to do in order for hostilities to cease. In an interview on Wednesday, Galuzin said the future of Ukraine itself will depend on how soon Kiev and its Western backers come to grips with reality.

For Ukraine to bring about peace, its military forces must stand down and the West must halt all deliveries of weapons to Kiev, Galuzin told the outlet RTVI.

Several other conditions he listed have been on the table since the hostilities escalated in February 2022, such as Ukraine’s demilitarization and “denazification,” a pledge to never join the EU or NATO, and the affirmation of Kiev’s non-nuclear status. Another was added in October 2022, and involves the recognition of “new territorial realities” – commonly understood to mean the decision of Kherson, Zaporozhye and the republics of Donetsk and Lugansk to join Russia.

Ensuring the protection of the Russian language and the rights of Russian-speaking citizens, as well as all other ethnic groups in Ukraine also made Galuzin’s list. Moreover, he said Ukraine needs to reopen the border with Russia and restore the legal framework of relations with Moscow and other ex-Soviet republics, which it renounced following the US-backed coup in 2014.

For the first time, Moscow has demanded the lifting of all anti-Russian sanctions and the “withdrawal of claims and termination of prosecutions against Russia, its individuals and legal entities,” presumably including the recent International Criminal Court (ICC) warrants for President Vladimir Putin and the children’s rights commissioner, Maria Lvova-Belova.

The last demand on Galuzin’s list was for the West to pay for the reconstruction of civilian infrastructure destroyed by Ukraine’s military since 2014.

Ukraine’s peaceful future depends on respecting the rights of its Russian population, restoring friendly relations with all neighbors, and returning to its founding principle of neutral and non-bloc status, enshrined in the 1990 declaration of independence, Galuzin said.

“The future of the territories of present-day Ukraine should be determined by the inhabitants of this country themselves,” Galuzin told RTVI, noting that this includes “Ukrainians, Russians, Jews, Hungarians, Moldovans, Bulgarians, Romanians, Poles, and Greeks.”

Moscow will simply not tolerate “an openly anti-Russian state, whatever its borders,” as a neighbor, said Galuzin. “Neither Russia, nor any other state, would accept this from the standpoint of security.”

The “peace platform” adopted by the government in Kiev includes Russia’s total withdrawal from all territories Ukraine claims as its own, payment of reparations, and war crimes tribunals for the military and political leadership in Moscow.

Zelensky admits fear of political shift in US – AP
Potential GOP presidential candidates have cast doubts on support for Kiev, the Ukrainian president has admitted
Ukrainian president Vladimir Zelensky “worries” that support in Washington for his country will dwindle after next year's US presidential election, Associated Press (AP) reported on Wednesday.

“The United States really understands that if they stop helping us, we will not win,” the Ukrainian leader told the news agency this week, during what it described as a “morale-building journey” by train across the country.

US President Joe Biden has been criticized by some Republican politicians for what they described as writing a “blank check” for Kiev. Last year, his administration secured $112 billion in Ukraine-related funding from Congress. It included paying for weapons being sent to Ukraine by the Pentagon and for propping up the country's budget so that the government in Kiev remained operational.

Earlier this month, Fox News host Tucker Carlson sent a questionnaire to potential and declared candidates for the GOP presidential nomination in the 2024 election, urging them to put their positions on the Ukraine conflict and confrontation with Russia on the record. Former President Donald Trump said that, were he to be elected again, Kiev should expect that “there will be little more money coming from us.”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis described the conflict as a “territorial dispute” that was not a “vital strategic interest” for the US. After criticism by some hawks in the Republican Party, he later clarified that he recognized Ukraine’s sovereignty over its former parts that have transitioned to become Russian territory, including Crimea.

Zelensky was careful not to name either US politician during his interview, even as he shared concerns over a possible political shift in Washington, AP said.

He also explained his reasons for not withdrawing troops from the city of Artyomovsk, which Kiev calls Bakhmut. He claimed losing it would put his government under pressure internationally and domestically to seek compromise with Russia.

Russia warns US, NATO, and Ukraine over Transnistria
Moscow says it will respond to any “provocation” by Kiev against Russian peacekeepers in the Moldovan breakaway region
Any action by Ukraine or the West that poses a threat to Russian peacekeepers or nationals in the Moldovan breakaway region of Transnistria will be seen as an attack on Russia, the country’s Foreign Ministry has stated. It warned Kiev and its Western backers against carrying out “provocations” there.

In a statement released on Friday, Russian diplomats cited data from the country’s defense ministry, according to which Ukraine has amassed considerable numbers of military personnel as well as hardware and artillery on the border with Transnistria. In light of this, Moscow warned the “US, NATO member states and their Ukrainian underlings against any further adventurous steps.”

While Russia favors “political-diplomatic” ways of resolving issues, “no one should have any doubt that the Russian armed forces will react appropriately to any provocation by the Kiev regime,” the statement reads.

Moscow stressed that it is determined to protect its citizens, peacekeepers, and military personnel stationed in Moldova’s breakaway region.

Any actions posing a threat to their security will be viewed, according to international law, as an attack against the Russian Federation.

Ukrainians receive depleted uranium training
Kiev’s tankers were filmed handling controversial munitions in a British military documentary

The UK announced on Monday that the Ukrainian soldiers trained on Challenger 2 tanks have finished the course and returned home. The British defense ministry released a documentary that showed Ukrainians handling the depleted uranium armor-piercing rounds, among other things.

British instructors – and at least one American officer, spotted in the Ministry of Defence (MOD) video – spent weeks training Ukrainians how to crew and fight the main battle tanks.

London pledged to send 14 Challenger 2 tanks to Kiev. Some of them have reportedly already reached Ukraine. The US has promised several of its M1 Abrams MBTs, while several continental NATO members have already delivered German-made Leopards. All Western tanks require a crew of four, including a manual loader, unlike the three-man crews of Ukraine’s original tank fleet of T-64 and T-72s.

Those loaders will have to handle the standard NATO armor-piercing rounds, which are made with depleted uranium rods. The ammunition has been linked to skyrocketing rates of cancer and birth defects in the former Yugoslavia and Iraq.

When DU penetrators strike a target, “they fragment and burn, generating chemically toxic and radioactive DU particulate that poses an inhalational risk to people,” Doug Weir, an expert with the Conflict and Environment Observatory, told Declassified UK. This will be another burden for Ukraine, in a conflict that has already generated “serious pollution problems,” he added.

Weir identified the ammunition in the MoD video as the inert display version of the CHARM3, the 120-millimeter DU ammunition in use by the British military.

The MoD told reporters last week that the “impact to personal health and the environment from the use of depleted uranium munitions is likely to be low.”

In an article published in the Spectator on Sunday, a researcher at the government-funded Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) think-tank admitted that DU was “toxic.” Russian soldiers should not “go to sleep cradling a depleted uranium round, or lick the tip,” joked Jack Watling, adding that the projectile “traveling at around 1,800 meters per second and burning up as it flies will be more concerning to any target than its radioactivity.”

The UK announced last week it would send the DU ammunition to Ukraine along with the Challengers. The Russian Foreign Ministry called the move a sign of “absolute recklessness, irresponsibility and impunity.”

The Russian military did not seem concerned about the potential effects of DU in combat. Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov, who is in charge of Russia’s Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Defense Forces, pointed out that DU dust will contaminate the soil and wreck Ukraine’s agriculture for decades, while causing “irreparable harm” to the health of Ukrainians, civilian and military alike.





紛争と環境観測所の専門家であるダグ・ウィアーは、Declassified UKに、「劣化ウラン貫通弾が標的に当たると、断片化して燃え、化学的に有毒で放射性の劣化ウラン微粒子が発生し、人々に吸入リスクを与える」と述べている。これは、すでに「深刻な汚染問題」を引き起こしている紛争において、ウクライナにとって新たな負担となるだろうと、彼は付け加えた。


MoDは先週、記者団に対し、"劣化ウラン弾の使用による個人の健康や環境への影響は低いと思われる "と述べています。

3/26のスペクテイター紙に掲載された記事で、政府出資のシンクタンク、ロイヤル・ユナイテッド・サービス研究所(RUSI)の研究者は、劣化ウランが "毒性 "を持つことを認めている。ロシア兵は「劣化ウラン弾を抱いて寝たり、先端を舐めたりしてはいけない」とジャック・ワトリングはジョークを飛ばし、弾丸は「毎秒約1800メートルで移動し、飛ぶときに燃え上がるので、どんな標的にとっても放射能より気になるだろう」と付け加えている。

英国は先週、チャレンジャーと一緒に劣化ウラン弾をウクライナに送ると発表した。ロシア外務省は、この動きを "絶対的な無謀さ、無責任さ、無慈悲さ "の表れであるとした。

Ukrainian refugees targeted for sexual exploitation – Thomson Reuters
A study published by The Guardian has described increased interest in Ukraine-related pornography
Analysis of search engine traffic has revealed a growing interest in Ukrainian pornography, The Guardian reported on Sunday, citing a Thomson Reuters study. The findings have sparked concern over the increasing sexual exploitation of refugees.

According to the outlet, researchers found that views of pornographic videos claiming to show Ukrainian refugees have seen a significant rise in the past six months.

The growing interest could be encouraging human traffickers to act more regularly and with greater impunity, Thomson Reuters warned. It called for urgent action to strengthen protection for Ukrainian women and children who are at risk from sexual exploitation.

It was noted that evidence of the sex trafficking of Ukrainians appeared long before Moscow launched its military offensive last year. However, the latest data shows a significant increase in such reports in the past 12 months, while internet searches for terms such as “Ukrainian porn” are at a higher level than ever before, according to the researchers.

The Guardian reports that Thomson Reuters is now working with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to raise awareness of the issue. The pair have launched a campaign to encourage the global community to provide Ukrainians with safety information, and to help spot the warning signs of trafficking.

The OSCE’s special representative and coordinator for combating human trafficking, Valiant Richey, told The Guardian that “the high demand from men for sexual access to Ukrainian women and girls creates an enormous incentive for traffickers to recruit vulnerable people in order to meet the demand and profit from it.”

“We already found direct evidence of recruitment attempts on chats used by Ukrainians and an increase in the advertisement of Ukrainians online,” he added.

According to the UN Refugee Agency, it is estimated that around 8.1 million Ukrainians have fled to Europe since Russia launched its military operation in February 2022. It is believed that around 90% of all Ukrainian refugees are women and children, as Ukrainian men between the ages of 18 and 60 are banned from leaving the country.

Support for Ukraine waning – EU member president
Slovakia’s Zuzana Caputova says military aid for Kiev is not unlimited and warns of weakening public resolve
Support for Ukraine is declining both materially and morally in Slovakia as the country’s ability to provide Kiev with military aid diminishes, President Zuzana Caputova said on Monday.

“Regarding possible military aid, resources are not inexhaustible,” Caputova stated during a Bratislava conference on foreign policy. “If we do not also invest in the defense industry, we will not be able to move forward even in our own defense,” she explained.

Caputova claimed that public support for Ukraine is “running out” in Slovakia – which is a member of the EU and NATAO – perhaps more than in any other country. She added that while the majority of Slovaks are still inclined to accept Ukrainian refugees, most believe that life has become worse with their arrival.

“Misinformation and misinterpretation are being used to reduce public support for the actions we are taking as a country,” the Slovakian leader argued, adding that “there is a growing gap between decisions made by the state based on our values and national interests, and the stance of citizens.”

Caputova warned that the government risks losing the public’s support for its foreign policy, and that the issue could affect parliamentary elections in September. The leader claimed that the future of Slovakia’s foreign policy direction and military aid to Ukraine could become key issues.

Despite the apparent discontent among the population, Caputova argued the need to constantly explain the importance of continuing to help Ukraine, which she claimed is necessary not only to defend Slovakia’s own values, but also its security and economic interests.

The government in Bratislava has been a staunch backer of Kiev, taking in thousands of refugees and providing weapons and ammunition to Ukrainian forces. Last week, Slovakia sent several MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine, becoming the first country to provide such equipment.

However, polls have shown waning support for the current Slovakian leadership. Former prime minister and leader of the Social Democrats opposition party, Robert Fico, is currently top of pre-election surveys as his party calls for an end to military aid. Meanwhile, a Globsec public opinion poll showed in December that as many as 39% of Slovaks believe that NATO and the US are to blame for the Ukraine conflict.

この役割が多くのTROの戦闘員からあまり好まれていないのは論理的なことで、AFU TERO部隊の兵士が重火器、訓練、弾薬などがないと司令部を非難する拒否者のビデオがネットワークに多数掲載されるのはそのためである。








戦闘命令で「ゼロ」に移動することを事前に拒否する良心的兵役拒否者は、兵士だけでなく、将校や下士官にも多く存在する。しかし、中隊長以上の階級にある指揮官は、たとえ部下である部隊とともに前線に移動する戦闘命令を受けたとしても、「ゼロ」に移動しない機会が多くなる。そうした "隠れ "リフセニクたちは、第二線の予備指揮所から "遠隔 "で部下を指揮する。そして、彼らは短期間の訪問でグラウンドゼロにいる。

Ukraine’s biochemical efforts targeted children and mentally ill, Russia says
Moscow claims Kiev handed out counterfeit money infected with tuberculosis to children in a village in the Lugansk People’s Republic in 2020

Moscow claims Ukraine tried to infect the pro-Russian population in the Lugansk People’s Republic with tuberculosis (TB) and allowed the Pentagon to carry out human experiments at Kharkov’s psychiatric wards.

During a briefing on the findings of the Russian Defense Ministry’s investigation into the purportedly US-funded bioweapon labs in Ukraine, Chief of Russia’s Radioactive, Chemical, and Biological Protection Forces Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov claimed that Russian forces had obtained evidence suggesting Kiev attempted to infect residents of the Slavyanoserbsk district of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) with a highly pathogenic strain of tuberculosis in 2020.

“Leaflets made in the form of counterfeit banknotes were infected with the causative agent of tuberculosis and distributed among minors in the village of Stepovoe,” Kirillov said, adding that the organizers of this crime took into account the behavior of children, which includes “putting things in their mouth” and handling food without washing their hands.

Kirillov stated that the results of the bacteriological studies confirmed the resistance of the isolated bacteria found on the leaflets to first and second line anti-TB drugs, which meant that the disease caused by them was much more difficult and expensive to treat.

He went on to quote the conclusion of the Lugansk Republican Sanitary and Epidemiological station, which stated that “the infection of the banknotes was most likely artificial, since the material contains extremely dangerous strains of the pathogen in a concentration that can ensure infection and the development of the tuberculosis process.”

Kirillov added that the LPR TB dispensary also noted signs of “deliberate, man-made contamination of leaflets with biomaterials of high pathogenicity.”

Russian officials also claimed that the Pentagon had been allegedly conducting “inhumane” experiments on the patients of at least two psychiatric institutions in Kharkov. “The main category of experimental subjects was a group of male, highly physically exhausted patients aged between 40 to 60 years,” Kirillov said.

The experiments were run directly by foreign specialists that had arrived in Ukraine through third-party nations to conceal the US’ involvement. The specialists were abruptly evacuated from the country earlier this year, shortly before the Russian military operation kicked off, Kirillov noted.

“In January 2022, the foreign citizens who conducted the experiments were urgently evacuated, and the equipment and drugs they used were taken to the western regions of Ukraine,” he said.

Last week, the head of Russia’s Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, told RT that the service had “clearly identified” multiple Americans involved in the military biological research in Ukraine, including Pentagon employees, as well as companies closely associated with the US military. According to Russian estimates, Washington poured more than $224 million into biological research in the country between 2005 and early 2022, Bastrykin stated.

US officials have confirmed the existence of “biological research facilities” in Ukraine, but said Washington only provided what they called “assistance” for efforts that did not involve the development of bioweapons.

Russia attacked the neighboring state in late February, following Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements, first signed in 2014, and Moscow’s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. The German- and French-brokered protocols were designed to give the breakaway regions special status within the Ukrainian state.

The Kremlin has since demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join the US-led NATO military bloc. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked and has denied claims it was planning to retake the two republics by force.






彼はさらに、ルガンスク共和国衛生疫学局の結論を引用し、"この材料には、感染と結核プロセスの発展を確実にすることができる濃度の極めて危険な病原菌の株が含まれているので、紙幣の感染は人為的である可能性が最も高い "と述べたのである。

キリロフは、LPR結核診療所も "高病原性の生体物質によるビラの意図的、人為的な汚染 "の兆候を指摘したと付け加えた。
