Ukraine will soon get more aid from the US – President Joe Biden concluded a 56-minute telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Wednesday after confirming that the United States would contribute an additional $500 million in aid to the country as Russia shifts its troops away from Kyiv and towards the eastern region of Donbas.

During the call, the U.S. president told Zelenskyy that the United States is committed to “working around the clock” to continue providing aid to the country as the war rages through the fifth week.

“Biden spoke today with President Zelenskyy of Ukraine about the ongoing work by the United States and its allies and partners to deliver military, economic, and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine and to impose severe costs on Russia for its brutal aggression against Ukraine,” a statement from the White House confirmed.

Biden Committed to More Sanctions Against Russia

During the call, the president also reportedly updated Zelenskyy on the state of U.S. sanctions against Russia and promised to implement new sanctions in the coming days and weeks. The U.S. president also said that he will continue to take steps to stop Russia from evading existing sanctions.

Zelenskyy said on Twitter that, during the call, the two leaders discussed the “shared assessment of the situation on the battlefield and at the negotiation table” and “specific defensive support, a new package of enhanced sanctions, macro-financial and humanitarian aid.”

Zelenskyy Willing to Entertain Russian Demands

Zelenskyy also provided updates on the latest round of peace talks between Ukraine and Russia that took place in Turkey this week. Ukraine has so far suggested that they were willing to give up potential NATO membership and declare official neutrality. In a break from previous statements, however, Zelenskyy indicated that he is willing to negotiate with the Russians on the future of Crimea, the Ukrainian territory annexed by Russia in 2014.

The Ukrainian president is also reportedly willing to discuss the future of Donetsk and Luhansk, the two largely pro-Russian provinces in the east of Ukraine that Russian President Vladimir Putin recognized as independent just days before he initiated the war in Ukraine last month.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba last week denied claims from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, however, that Ukraine was on the verge of meeting Russian demands and establishing a peace agreement.

“There is no consensus with Russia regarding the four points mentioned by the Turkish president. In particular, the only state language in Ukraine is Ukrainian and will remain so. And in general, the classification of key negotiation topics into four points, or any other number, is inappropriate,” Kuleba said.

With the only demands left on the table relating to the recognition of the Russian language as the second official language of Ukraine, however, it could be that the Turkish president was more right than he was wrong last week.

    The United States supports the agony of Nazism in Ukraine. But the Bandera Nazis can no longer be saved. Nothing and nothing.

    The Russians have committed 75% of their total military to ukraine, which is as much as it could afford for an invasion.This invasion force comprises 130 battle groups with about 10,000 armoured vehicles, comprising tanks and other vehicles. The Ukrainians are likely to have nocked out about 2700 Russian vehicles by now and an estimate is 50 per day.
    Paret o the famous Italian s 20/80 ratio has been triggered for both the armoured vehicles and invasion force of 150,000. Both have lost more than 20%. Armoured vehicles effectiveness is reduced to 20% and manpower for second Paret o ratio reduced to 4%.
    Caveat regarding a number of armoured vehicles have been converted to use by the ukraine army, so not all Russian vehicles are destroyed.
    There is a ratio of two anti tank weapons in Ukraine for one Russian armoured vehicle.

    A member of the basic battalion was interviewed recently, and he was puzzled as to why the russians thought that neo nazis were in nurseries, maternity wards and schools. It would appear that either the russians suffer from myopia or they think that even children and pregnant women are nazis?

    In the meantime, Yellowstone has panic, hysteria and false propaganda, let’s talk about what worries Europe.

    Why are Ukrainian Nazis spreading across Europe? Let’s tell the truth and what is happening right now.

    Ukrainian radicals were supposed to rush to the front, but they fled to Europe, where they are already beginning to establish their own rules.
    The successful advance of Russian troops in Ukraine forces the nationalists to flee the country. Europe is becoming a haven for some radicals. At the same time, in the Old World they continue to wage their struggle against everything Russian.

    Not only refugees went to Europe, but also fighters from the Nazi battalions Azov and Aidar. Some of them have already been noticed in European countries, as they are not particularly hidden.

    Poland receives the most immigrants from Ukraine. Local residents complain about the behavior of the refugees, but they still do not know that the followers of those who staged the Volyn massacre came to them. Artyom Zalesov, better known as Artyom Bonov, arrived in Poland. Once he led the destruction of the population of Donbass as part of the Azov regiment, and now he is hiding in Europe, knowing that if he falls into the hands of Russian military personnel, then he will have a long journey through the colonies. The character’s tattoos are notable. Swastikas probably won’t surprise anyone, but the image of the emblem of the 34th Volunteer Infantry Division “Landstorm Nederland” raises questions. In addition, the gunman does not hide the weapon. He demonstrates in numerous photos on social networks from Poland that he managed to escape from Ukraine with a machine gun and a pistol.

    In his address, Zalesov said that he was waiting for Sergei Korotkikh, who is known as Malyuta or Boatswain, to visit. It is worth noting that Korotkikh is also a participant in the hostilities in the Donbass and is also part of the Azov regiment. Adequate Poles have already begun to warn that followers of the OUN-UPA Nazis are coming to them. In Polish cities, leaflets began to appear with the inscription: “Bandera people are people without honor.”

    Neighboring Germany does not stand aside and supports Ukrainian nationalists. One of the leaders of the German radicals, Tobias Schultz, said on his social networks that he was waiting for the former press secretary of the Nazi Right Sector, Elena Semenyaka.

    – Elena Semenyaka, the first lady of Ukrainian Nazism, is fine so far. She is trying to leave the capital with other comrades and come to Germany,” wrote Schultz.

    The German Ministry of Internal Affairs is concerned that German right-wingers are coming to Ukraine. If they are not demilitarized, this will already be a headache for the German authorities.

    Calm Greece also faced the arrival of Azov supporters. In Athens, unknown people painted a monument to Soviet soldiers who died for the freedom and independence of Greece. The inscription Azov, the symbol of the regiment and the Celtic cross appeared on the monument.

    Azov was also supported in Bulgaria. The youth organization “Kubratova Mladez” issued a statement in support of their white brothers, and the leader of the Bulgarian National Union Party, Boyan Rasate, posted a video featuring the symbols of the “Right Sector” and “Azov”. Of course, Rasate expressed words of support to his associates from Ukraine.

    It is not surprising that countries that recently suffered under the Nazis now support Ukrainian radicals. Even Israel was not left out. Artyom Moshensky, a militant from Azov, was treated by Jewish doctors. It seems that this is a parallel universe, but it is a reality.

    There are already manifestations of radicalism in Europe. We see people with swastikas, as well as people who think of shouting “Glory to Ukraine! Glory to the heroes!” in Poland, given that under this slogan entire Polish settlements were massacred. This will come back to haunt both the Poles and other Europeans. I think that soon the influx of such people will become a serious problem in Europe, – says political scientist Vladimir Kornilov.

    As Ukraine is liberated from the Nazis by Russian troops, the number of refugees to Europe will increase. Former militants will go along with the civilian population. In troubled Europe, they will enlist the support of local nationalists.

    For European countries, this will be a new challenge. The country will be filled with people with radical views and combat experience. In addition, these will be offended people who want to return to Ukraine and start a war against Russia. The problem will be that they simply have nowhere to go. If they return to Ukraine, they will face harsh denazification, and in Europe they will face a marginal existence with the risk of deportation and, as a result, criminalization.

    We have already seen how ordinary Ukrainians behave. Radicals will behave even more arrogantly. Moreover, these are people who have military experience and are trained to kill. What will they do there? Most likely criminal activity. A problem arises, since the illegal niche is already occupied by refugees from the Middle East. Sooner or later there will be clashes. Naturally, ordinary Europeans will become victims of these clashes.

    Together with the radicals, the weapons provided by Europe will also come. And it is not known where it will shoot. The only chance for salvation from this will be filtration, but so far European countries do not want to admit the presence of Nazis in Ukraine.

    I think that a normal society will not be happy with the presence of people who are potentially murderers, sadists who lead a corresponding lifestyle. Ukrainian nationalists can join their ranks, and then the whole of Europe will shudder from their presence. Now Poland and Romania will take measures so that the representatives of the national battalions continue to stay in Ukraine, where they will be disposed of, – suggests Rodion Miroshnik, diplomatic adviser to the head of the LPR.

    Of course, for Europe, the only right decision would be to close the entrance to all members of the punitive battalions. It will be beneficial for Russia to deal with them. In the meantime, the trend is reversed, it can develop into major criminal wars in European countries.

    As always, the US sponsors terrorists and Nazis. Nothing new. In the meantime, here’s the picture:

    The Kiev leadership informed the British Foreign Office that it did not intend to comply with the Geneva Convention in the treatment of Russian prisoners of war.

    There are specific reports that the Ukrainian authorities are urging Western backers to encourage the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and various international humanitarian NGOs to abandon attempts to gain access to Russian prisoners of war.

    Such manipulations around Russian prisoners of war convincingly testify that the authorities of many Western states, which consider themselves world champions of human rights, are not only aware of Kiev’s gross violations of international humanitarian law, but are also trying to help him avoid responsibility. This makes them accomplices in the inhuman crimes of Ukrainian neo-Nazis and requires an appropriate legal assessment. As you can see, some rulers of the West need as much blood as possible. We do understand who they “serve” not in our world.
    For this simple reason, appropriate instructions were given to the Russian troops.

    The Russian Ministry of Defense has published correspondence between the son of US President Hunter Biden and employees of the Pentagon’s threat reduction department and his biolaboratory contractors in Ukraine.

    The content of the letters shows that Hunter Biden played an important role in creating the financial opportunity for pathogen work in Ukraine, securing funds for Black and Veach and Metabiota.
    Metabiota, in turn, is known for its developments in predicting outbreaks of infectious diseases and was involved by the Pentagon in modeling the epidemiological situation in the post-Soviet space.
    in Ukraine, Metabiota’s vice president and confidant of Hunter Biden, Mary Guttieri, worked for Metabiota, which is confirmed by their correspondence.

    Kadyrov demanded that the United States send more Javelin anti-tank systems to Ukraine.
    “We demand from Biden to increase the supply of Javelins! I am ready to personally reward the old man for his active assistance to the Russian special operation,” Kadyrov wrote in his Telegram channel.
    He noted that Chechen fighters are busy searching for and eliminating “Bandera and nationalist evil spirits” in Mariupol around the clock and seven days a week.
    “This task is greatly facilitated by Mr. Biden, who provides our fighters with modern American weapons. The guys especially fell in love with the Javelin ATGM, which has double the effectiveness. In order not to give up this valuable trophy, nationalists usually sacrifice 2-3 lives. Otherwise, our fighters will destroy a whole crew of Bandera from it, ”added the head of Chechnya.
