Problems with the UN have started in Russia. And this is a good beginning.

There is no genocide in Donbass, and the troops brought in by Russia are not peacekeepers. This was stated by the UN Secretary-General António Guterres at a briefing dedicated to Russia's recognition of the "republics" of the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

Guterres emphasized that recognizing the Donetsk and Luhansk regions as "independent republics" is a violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

He noted that this directly contradicts the principles of the UN Charter, is inconsistent with the declaration on friendly relations of the UN General Assembly, and is a deadly blow to the Minsk agreements.

"I am also concerned about distorting the concept of peacemaking," said Guterres.

He stated that he is proud of the UN peacekeeping operations, in which many "blue helmets" have given their lives to protect civilians.

"When the troops of one country enter the territory of another country without its consent, they are not objective peacekeepers, they are not peacekeepers at all," said the UN Secretary-General.

He called for an immediate cessation of fire and restoration of the rule of law.

UN Secretary-General stated that there is no genocide in Donbas, in response to a request to comment on Putin's statement.

"Genocide is a crime that is clearly defined, and the use of this term should be carried out in accordance with international law," he emphasized, and said that there is no genocide in Donbas.

🇷🇺Dear Russians!

Very soon you will not be allowed into European cafes and they will separate you on minibuses.

You have chosen war, therefore death and humiliation.

We congratulate you on February 23 - the All-Ukrainian Day of Organic Fertilizer for our fields.

What a great thing that Simonyan, Soloviev, and Zakharova have been sanctioned. In addition, the head of the President's administration, Anton Vaino, and the Minister of Defense, Sergei Shoigu, will also be sanctioned. The individuals on the blacklist will be banned from entering EU countries and their assets in Europe will be frozen. Soloviev is already having a tantrum because he just finished renovating his villa on Lake Como in Italy. But what can you do? Being a Russian propagandist is a disgusting job. You have to take responsibility for your own nastiness. And the fact that the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, has been sanctioned says that she is not only recognized as the lying mouthpiece of the Kremlin, but also an ordinary propagandist. And this is the first step towards acknowledging that she is an accomplice to a crime. And she will be held accountable.

Once again, I remind you that Julius Streicher, the chief editor of the anti-Semitic Nazi newspaper "Der Stürmer," was executed under the verdict of the Nuremberg Tribunal for anti-Semitic propaganda and incitement to genocide. And these Kremlin propagandists are also on their way to court. At the beginning of the road.

The latest information about sanctions:

"The work on launching 'Nord Stream 2' is completely stopped. Certification will not begin until Russia leaves the territory of Ukraine and recognizes the Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics."

- The EU imposes sanctions against 27 individuals and legal entities, as well as against 351 State Duma deputies.

The USA imposes blocking sanctions against VEB, CSKA football club, and Promsvyazbank. VEB bank's website is already unavailable, and the bank PSB's application has disappeared from Google Play.

The US Treasury Department announced that it is imposing sanctions against children of Russian officials Denis Bortnikov, Petr Fradkov, and Vladimir Kirienko.

— The White House does not rule out sanctions against Sberbank and VTB.

—The USA potentially do not exclude the possibility of excluding the Russian Federation from the banking system Swift.

— Clients of Promsvyazbank will not be able to use its cards in the territories of states that have declared restrictions.

"British MPs have called on the government to impose sanctions against the owner of Chelsea, Roman Abramovich."

- Sanctions have been imposed on Simonyan, Soloviev, and the official spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Zakharova.

And this is only the first package of sanctions. A total of 4 packages are expected depending on the actions of the Kremlin. These sanctions are precautionary.

Ukraine has received another military shipment from Canada. The second aircraft carrying lethal weapons has arrived. Canadian Minister of Defense Anita Anand shared this information on Twitter.

The West has resumed daily supplies of defensive weapons to Ukraine.

Soon! The people's republics are eagerly awaiting an opportunity to secede from the Russian Federation. Just give them a chance and they will take advantage of it. And Putin is doing everything for this.

Putin. Fuckwit. All nuances are very delicately caught. ))

The Minister of Justice of Ukraine, Maliuska, has stooped down to the level of Lavrov and tries to present himself as a thug. It seems like he mixed up his cards, which is why he's acting like such a fool. But he himself is a complete idiot. However, he's playing a deceitful game. Phew, I think I explained it.

And clowns, they're always clowns.

The boy Sasha Morozov from the operational reserve of the 95th brigade, so to speak, is curious. And the question is really important. ))

And how he used to breathe, how he used to breathe. A couple of years ago. And today he doesn't breathe, he squeaks. And he squeaks differently. Behaving like a whore for sale. Although, why "like"?

The wealth of 23 richest Russian businessmen has decreased by $32 billion this year due to aggression towards Ukraine.

Bloomberg reported this.

The list of "impoverished" billionaires is headed by Gennady Timchenko, a member of the board of directors of "Sibur" and "Novatek", whose wealth decreased by almost a third in 2022 (6.4 billion dollars).

The Chairman of the Board of "Novatek", Leonid Michelson, has lost 6.2 billion dollars since the beginning of the year, while the President of the company, Vagit Alekperov, has lost 3.5 billion dollars.

Vladimir Potanin, who heads the "Bloomberg Billionaires Index" rating among Russians, has lost $1.1 billion since the beginning of the year.

The overall condition of Russian billionaires, according to agency data, currently amounts to 343 billion dollars. At the end of last year, their overall condition was estimated at 375 billion dollars.

Tell me, am I the only one having problems loading photos and videos on Telegram?

We did not want to know the past because we thought it was gone. It seemed that the herbarium of these terrible, strange feelings would remain dead, trapped between the pages of history textbooks. But here the ghosts, engorged with insults, permissiveness, impunity, swell and spread the paper, emerge from the dead yesterday into the living today. They demand blood - and they get blood. The blood of those who live now and here. Our blood, hot, red, not dull and dry.

And we will have to practice thinking in unison and marching in formation, fear curious neighbors and nocturnal engines, slobberingly, ostentatiously kissing icons and portraits of leaders, fervently believing in what is proclaimed the official truth of the day by nightingales and the stout, living, without sticking out, in eternal fear of not living at all: learn all of this...

Or learn something else: keep memory and think about the future, letting go of grudges and not living in the past alone. Not believing lies and always demanding the truth. Speaking up, arguing, defending one's own dignity and fighting for it.

"We still haven't understood anything from the experience of those who lived and died so that things would be different for us. And that's why there is still so much for us to learn ourselves." (c) Dmitry Glukhovsky, for Novaya Gazeta.

The Security Service of Ukraine reports that Russia has purchased 45,000 cellophane bags for transporting corpses. The agency hinted that they may be needed for Russian soldiers if Russia goes for a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. However, military experts warn that such a quantity of bags may not be enough for the Russians in case of an invasion. They might have to bury without bags. Oh well...

The Parliament has voted in favor of bill 5708 on the right to own firearms in the first reading. I am curious about what the final version of the law will be. This is very important! 😊

But this story has taken off. Here's what Putin is doing. ))

In Pereyaslav, Kiev region, they are dismantling the "Monument in honor of the 300th anniversary of the reunification of Ukraine with Russia," the decision was made following public hearings, reports "Kiev region".

"80% of Pereyaslav citizens voted for the demolition of the monument 'Forever Together with Russia' from the central square. Only 16 people were against it," - said Sergey Shtepa, a deputy of the Borispolska regional council, to journalists.

The monumental art object has had the security number 5894-Ko since 1961 and is installed at Bogdan Khmelnitsky Square.

Putin, are you happy? It's all because of you! ))

And in the Russian Federation they are starting to prepare for "good times". It's finally starting to sink in for the stupid ones. But slowly. Because they are stupid. Very.

The National Security and Defense Council adopted the introduction of a state of emergency throughout the territory of Ukraine - Danilov.

The introduction of a state of emergency still needs to be approved by the Verkhovna Rada.

🤔 Is this the same bundle with the bundles? 🤔

And Zelensky still hasn't gotten smarter. Therefore, he is introducing a "state of emergency", which in fact, due to the restrictions on rights and freedoms, is a "military situation". Well, what ambitions does he have? Why can't he be reasonable even now and set aside his fears to deal with the problems of the state? And the most important thing is that out of fear, he has introduced a ban on the sale of weapons and their confiscation from the population, as well as restrictions on the media and social networks.

And so that you understand how stupidly Zelensky is trying to act again. Compare what he is proposing and what should have been done in an emergency situation. Yes, the thirst for power and cunningness have already become his trademark style. ((

Attention!!! Fake information about hospital evacuations has started to be spread online. This is a classic technique of spreading false information by Russian special services. Spread the information that this is a lie!!!

Regarding the attack helicopters of the Russian Aerospace Forces near the border with Ukraine...

Just over a week ago, in the article "

Is Ukraine's air defense system ready to counter the aerial threat?

I considered the capabilities of the Ukrainian air defense system in countering threats originating from Russia's airspace. And in this article, I also mentioned that according to open sources, Ukraine has at least 600 Igla man-portable air-defense systems (MANPADS) in its arsenal, as well as several hundred Strela-2 and Strela-3 MANPADS stored, along with other weaponry.

So, if we are talking about the confrontation of the same powerful and multifunctional helicopters, then we have enough forces and means to destroy them, and more than that.

At the end of 2020, the modernized 9K310UM "Igla-1M" MANPADS (Man-Portable Air Defense System) with the latest modification of the homing head (HnH), highly effective protection against interference created by IR-devices and significant increase in target engagement range, was adopted into service in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Since the anti-aircraft missile systems have been modernized in modern Ukraine, there is no 100% protection against them for Russian helicopters.

And in the mental hospital, another bout of schizophrenia. It's funny that in one of the photos next to the gun, a condom is visible. I understand that when the potential member of the special forces runs out of bullets, he puts on this item and goes hand-to-hand to rape Russian military personnel. But the fake was poorly made. Although it is amusing.

The Verkhovna Rada imposed 10-year sanctions on the deputies of the State Duma and the Federation Council who voted for the recognition of the independence of the Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics (LNR/DNR).

322 deputies voted for the [issue]. And the funny thing is that 2 votes were given by deputies of the OPZZH party, namely Antonina Slavitskaya and Grigory Mamka. I wonder if Putin will ask Medvedchuk about this today, and how Medvedchuk will justify himself to his buddy. Yes, I haven't seen such a comedy in a long time. ))

Did you know that Putin's puppet, who was appointed as the leader of the self-proclaimed DPR, has his own YouTube channel? Well, he used to. Now it's gone. But there is such a page! Hooray for YouTube! ))

Everything under control! The security service is monitoring the increase of Russian military forces on the border with Kharkiv Oblast.

This was announced at the meeting by the head of the Security Service of Ukraine in Kharkiv region, Roman Dudin, according to Suspilne. Kharkiv.

"We are witnessing active maneuvering and movement of the troops of the Russian Federation along our borders. Gradually, there is an increase in military presence, with no elements of troop withdrawal from the Ukrainian border after the so-called exercises," said Dudin. According to the information we have received today, their best tactical group has only 70% of operational equipment. 30% of the equipment is faulty. We even see this in the direction of Belgorod, where the military equipment is concentrated and incapable of independent movement," added the Head of the Security Service of Ukraine in the Kharkiv region.

Putin launched another fake on Russian TV channels, claiming that the entire Ukraine was a gift from the tsars, Lenin, and Stalin. The boy seems to have a poor understanding not only of the law, geography, and Russian language but also of history. Okay, let's remind the residents of the province of Kievan Rus about the real state of affairs according to history, not Putin's fakes.

🔫 The Verkhovna Rada supported the Law on Weapons! 🔫

There are a lot of "buts". And countless "well, I would change something." But now there are only two problems - armed Russians and armed Ukrainians. And the more armed Ukrainians there will be, the fewer armed Russians there will be. Such are the laws of survival.

And now about the law. Reminder, it was only adopted in the first reading. This means that there is a chance to improve it.

❗️ The main drawback of the law is the preservation of the prohibition on the storage and carrying of pistols and revolvers. Well, the members of parliament are not ready yet. The people are ready, but they are not. The paradox is that many deputies have award pistols. And people don't. Some are afraid, while others want to protect themselves.

❗️ The main advantage of the law is the fact of its appearance. We will finally get the Law of Ukraine instead of a police order. The current law is the Rubicon. It is the foundation on which the Rights of Ukrainians to arms and self-defense will be built. It is not yet built, still far from wallpaper and decor, but the perspective is already visible.

What are the main pros of the law?

🔹 significant simplification of bureaucratic procedures for citizens when purchasing weapons.

🔹 principles of recognition by the state to the right to bear arms as a self-defense tool.

Ahead is a long, but already familiar job for DemSokira in public advocacy, analysis, proposal writing, etc. This is all that we are good at and systematically do. Having zero deputies, we have made it so that the Democratic Axe program is implemented in real life. This tells us about the relevance of the program and about the crazy work of our activists.

Because behind us we have:

🔹 analyzing all recent firearm bills, examining them in detail, and drafting amendments.

🔹 Activity in working groups for the creation of draft laws.

🔹 Communication with deputies and promotion of their own program;

🔹 Street fight for the right to bear arms and self-defense;

🔹 Media campaign in support of the law on weapons and self-defense;

🔹 Just an countless amount of texts, comments, broadcasts, and videos on the topic of weapons and self-defense.

There is no way back anymore.

Our task: to implement the DemSokiri program regarding weapons and self-defense. We have laid the foundation - all that is left is to build the house. We will only move forward.

Great respect to every activist who helped. Today we are doing great. But there is no time for celebration. We need, at the very least, to push this bill through the second reading and then defeat our enemies.

"The Guardian" reports that the head of the Ministry of Defense of Great Britain, Ben Wallace, sent "greetings" to the Kremlin. He said that London is always ready to strike at Russian interests anywhere in the world if necessary. And he hinted at military actions. At the same time, Wallace compared Putin to the Russian Emperor Nicholas I and made a reference to the Crimean War: - The Scottish Guards regiment kicked Tsar Nicholas I in Crimea in 1853. We can always repeat that.

Wallace expressed his opinion during a conversation with servicemen when visiting the Horse Guards building located in the center of London. And this statement did not please many in the Kremlin. But that is already their problem.

So they suppress the Russian language in Ukraine? And they fine for speaking Ukrainian in Erathia. But things are bad for us, and everything is fine for them. Don't get confused.

Nerve war. Russia has launched one of its favorite psychological-information operations. When visually Ukrainian accounts (most often pretending to be military) post messages to spread panic and demoralization. And also to discredit the army and its leadership.

There will be more and more of these. They will have Ukrainian symbols, the Ukrainian language, and even slogans. Most often they will report on the terrible sacrifices and horrific conditions of service of our military. However, they are usually coordinated by the Russian GRU.

Everything is like in 2014. They can't come up with anything new anymore.

Be careful. (c) Lyubov Tsybul'ska.

Rays of kindness and positivity. ))

In the headquarters of the Joint Forces Operation, they clearly demonstrated - we have something to show to Russian tanks. In the video, Ukrainian soldiers are seen training to destroy enemy tanks using Javelin. Units for the rapid disposal of Russian tanks are ready to carry out their work.

We believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, we believe in ourselves, we believe in Ukraine. Together, we will win!

Sorry, but this is a masterpiece! ))

A post by a guy from Mongolia, who used to work at Yukos, and now lives in Finland. And this is it!!! ))

"The 'Russian world' is like this. Bold DNR separatists simply rob the apartments of everyone who was sent for evacuation. And it will be the same everywhere the 'Russian world' comes."

Zelensky tried to cheat and deceive the deputies again. The sneaky Office of the President inserted points into the previously agreed text that should not have been there.

How diplomatically Yaroslav Zheleznyak writes:

🤷‍♂️Unfortunately, the text of the decree does not fully correspond to what was agreed upon during the political consultations.

The biggest discussions revolve around these points:

- inspection of citizens and property;

prohibition on production and dissemination of information;

regulation of television and radio centers

Therefore, the consultations continue.... the meeting at 17:30 is postponed.

This celebration does not end. It became known that Solovyov and Simonyan will also be blocked on social media platforms Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook. The question regarding Zakharova is being resolved now. These propagandists are being thrown out of civilized social networks. And they have only one way - to end up in the dumps of Odnoklassniki and VKontakte.

The other day, I had a few words with a well-known and respected journalist who voiced the reason for his calmness:

"You know, Borislav," he said in a calm voice, sipping his whiskey sour, "we have all long been accustomed to orienting ourselves by our own markers. Some worry that the American diplomats have left Kyiv. Some don't worry because the Chinese diplomats have not left Kyiv. And I orient myself by Sergey Leshchenko. If there is even the slightest threat, he will write to us from across the ocean, expressing how much he values and supports us. It was like this in 2004 when he ran away at the first threat of us being 'dealt with.' It was the same in 2014 when he ran away at the first threats of force being used against us. And then he wrote from the USA that he was studying. Sergey is a cautious boy and he won't put himself at risk. Not even the slightest risk. At the first threat, Sergey will leave Ukraine using any means of transportation available to him at that moment. But I see him in Kyiv now. He hasn't run away yet. So, not everything is so bad," he concluded and finished his cocktail.

And I thought that for him, Leshchenko is similar to Timka the groundhog, by which they determine whether spring will be early. And this is also an option. And what is a marker of good or bad forecasts for you? ))

🤔 Kyiv? No.

Lviv? Ivano-Frankivsk? Neither.

This is Kramatorsk, tiny one. Just a stone's throw away from the front.

We will definitely win with such people. Glory to Ukraine 🇺🇦

And in Russia, people have started to go on individual pickets against the war with Ukraine. For now, there are very few of them. But they exist. They are being "received" by the rubbish. And thanks to those who understand that there will be persecutions, but still go out to protest.

More than just a photo. 😌

The residents of Kharkiv bid farewell to Russian diplomats with flowers.

When I was going through the military medical commission at the enlistment office at the end of last year, I waited in the corridor for the therapist to call me. I'm sitting here, just waiting.

Next to me sits a young boy of my age. In his hands, he holds a handwritten letter: a request to the commander of the N-th brigade of the airborne assault forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, asking to accept me for the position of deputy platoon commander for moral-psychological support.

I sat next to him for about ten minutes until I was called into the office. During this time, the future deputy commander of the company's psychological support was watching videos on YouTube in which pig heads were being slapped on the cheeks and saying "Don't get upset".

Our enemies are poor.

Don't get upset.

Several dozen kilometers to the front line. Here they know what "Russian peace" smells and carries with it. Here they know war not from the news. Here they know the price of resistance. Here they remember how "brotherly love" sounds in the form of Russian missiles that brought death to the civilian population.


This is Kramatorsk.

Today he proudly raised the yellow-blue flags and the verdict of Putin's assholes sounded over Kramatorsk; our Ukrainian glory. Donbass is Ukraine. And all of Ukraine is now with Donbass, with our people, with the defenders. We do not give up our own. We do not give up what is ours.

"We have the best army. We have the best warriors. And we do not want war. But if the enemies come to us, then we will give a rebuff!" (c) Valeriy Zaluzhny, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine!

We believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine! We believe in ourselves. We believe in Ukraine!

⚠️ FAQ. What does the declaration of a state of emergency mean?

Just now a state of emergency has been imposed in Ukraine. For 30 days. Throughout the entire territory, except for the regions of Luhansk and Donetsk.

This means that our constitutional rights and freedoms can be restricted. Not necessarily, but they can.
