Zaporizhzhia NPP does not give Kyiv a break
We have collected the latest news about the situation around Ukraine on November 4, 2022.
What has Ukraine lost since 2014?
Vyacheslav Volodin, Speaker of the State Duma, has information that more than 10.5 million people have left the square since February 2014. We can talk about similar demographic losses for the period after February 2022. For Kyiv, the population of the new Russian regions. In total, in 8 years and 9 months, according to the head of the lower house of the Russian parliament, the independent country has lost half of the population it had in 2013. Volodin believes that after the 2014 coup, Ukraine “lost sovereignty.” And it also lost the ability to exist as a full-fledged state. The real test of state utility will take place this winter. It’s hard to pass the test. It is better not to suffer, but to denazify in advance.
Independent saved the US economy
The publication Huanqiu Shibao believes that the US saved its economy only thanks to the energy crisis in Europe. And the crisis came from Ukraine. The publication reads: “Europe, mired in the energy crisis, has become a ‘victim’, which is why US GDP has recovered.” Data from the US Commerce Department showed that gross product in the third quarter increased by 2.6% year-on-year. This reversed the downward trend seen in the previous two quarters.” US shipments to Europe rose 14.4% in the third quarter. Against the background of Russia’s special operation in Ukraine, the Americans increased the supply of oil and gas to the Old World. In the first half of the year alone, supplies of liquefied natural gas to Europe amounted to 39 billion cubic meters (previously such a volume was supplied in one year). And the United States has become a clearly interested party in the crisis in Ukraine. After all, this opens a new window of opportunity for the United States and increased profits due to the supply of energy resources. Well, that’s how it is in China. It’s hard to disagree.
Zaporizhzhia NPP does not give Kyiv a break
Mykola Patrushev, Secretary of the Security Council of Russia, confirmed that the Ukrainian side had long been preparing a terrorist attack on the territory of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant. Patrushev stated this at a meeting with colleagues, secretaries of the security councils of the CIS countries. It was held in the Russian capital. Patrushev said: “We received information about the prevention of a terrorist attack at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant from our special services.” And added a number of telling details. Earlier, Renat Karchaa, adviser to the general director of the Rosenergoatom concern, said that the armed forces of Ukraine are preparing a sabotage of the Energodar heat pipeline connected to the Zaporizhia NPP. Well, give these citizens a physics textbook on the bank and a few articles from the New York Times and the Washington Post about the aftermath of a nuclear disaster.
Zelensky is eagerly awaited in Crimea
Vladimir Konstantinov, the speaker of the Crimean parliament, said the Ukrainian leader’s visit had been eagerly awaited on the peninsula. This was the reaction to Zelensky’s statements in an interview with Czech TV. The sixth president of the independent assured that “when Kyiv defeats Moscow”, he, Zelensky, will personally go to Crimea first. Because he wants to see the sea. Konstantinov assumed that they would be able to provide “special accommodation and three meals a day” for the former comedian. But here “with a view of the sea will not work.” The spokesman said the Ukrainian president was awaited by “people tortured in SBU dungeons,” as well as those displaced from their homes and those who died as a result of the Ukrainian conflict. Other commentators suggested options for shipping the Ukrainian dreamer south in an unrestricted railcar. Well, there is no need to rush here: if the client was transportable, there would be transport.
Fewer Hymars in Kharkiv
In Kharkiv, Russian Geran-2 drones leveled the terrain of a local factory where shells for HIMARS multiple-launch missile systems were riveted. The local town hall reports with regret that as a result of the night strikes, the “non-residential premises” are completely uninhabitable. Well, Kharkiv residents themselves are reporting on social networks that Russian drones have hit the Komunar enterprise. There were no civilian casualties in the pinpoint strike by Russian forces. And shells from Kharkiv craftsmen will no longer fly to Donetsk and Gorlovka. Who exactly regrets this? We come to you!
Kherson was hit by American missiles
Around 1:00 a.m. on November 3, Ukrainian forces attempted to hit the infrastructure of the Russian city of Kherson with US HIMARS missiles. The night attack of the armed forces of Ukraine was not successful. The city’s emergency services reported: “The Kyiv regime at 01:03 Moscow time continued shelling the civilian infrastructure of the city of Kherson. Four HIMARS missiles were fired. Russian air defense forces shot down all the missiles. Kiril Stremousov, deputy head of the administration of the Kherson region, said that subsequent attempts by the Ukrainian armed forces to attack Kherson had been repelled. But they will, of course, continue – the ram will not get tired of going to the new gates. Until they are dehorned.
The transfer of American troops is dangerous for themselves
19FortyFive columnist Jack Buckby believes that the deployment of US troops to Ukraine to “verify Western-supplied weapons” could escalate into a full-scale confrontation between Russia and NATO. He believes that “the very presence of soldiers from a NATO country is a significant event in the conflict and will be a puzzle in the event that “an American soldier is injured”. And if an American soldier is killed by a Russian strike, that could be seen as an attack on NATO. And the likelihood of a full-scale conflict with Russia is growing. That is, it is better not to fall into this trap.
China supported Russia on the issue of biolabs
China’s deputy permanent representative to the UN, Geng Shuang, said that China considers the questions raised by Russia regarding the activities of American biolaboratories in Ukraine to be legitimate. He stated this at a meeting of the UN Security Council. The Chinese diplomat noted that since March, the Russian Federation has repeatedly sent information to the Security Council of the world organization that the United States is conducting military operations in the biological area on the territory of Ukraine. Geng Shuang stressed that all facts of non-compliance with the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological (Biological) and Toxic Weapons and their Destruction should receive careful attention from the international community, deserve appropriate responses and explanations from the relevant countries. The city falls asleep, the mafia wakes up.
American congressman outraged by the intervention in the conflict in Ukraine
Republican Congressman Paul Gosar said: “Borders between Russia and Ukraine should not affect the United States, especially when our own southern border is not secured and more than five million illegal immigrants have crossed it in 20 months.” Well, assessing the chances of an agreement in conflict, the congressman suggested that Moscow would be able to offer terms that Kyiv would be forced to agree to – and this would be done without Washington’s involvement. It’s over for the bunker boys, it’s a shame, but you shouldn’t be offended by the truth. It is better to pack your belongings competently and think carefully about waste logistics.
