West to walk back on weapons promise to Kyiv? ‘Running Out Of Arms…’ admits UK Defence Chief

How Europe sees the Ukraine War Now – Alastair Crooke fmr Brit Ambassador

The Armed Forces of Ukraine began demining before the counteroffensive.

The Washington Post writes that for several weeks, sappers go out into the fields and discreetly remove mines by hand, so that when moving equipment they do not give themselves away as possible explosions. For demining, specially modified vehicles based on the famous German Leopard 2 battle tank and the Soviet-designed UR-77 Meteorite vehicle are used.

The United States believes that, together with its allies, it provided Ukraine with all the necessary military assistance to launch a counteroffensive. Nevertheless, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will have to “break through” mine traps and “a massive system of engineering barriers” during the counteroffensive.

The territory of the Zaporozhye region has been turned by Russian troops into “a real fortress with a web of trenches and other obstacles visible from space” – The Washington Post.

According to the publication, the Russian army uses engineering barriers to slow down the likely counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and, if there is a breakthrough, to send Ukrainian forces into the “bottleneck”.

This will enable the Russian troops to regroup and launch artillery strikes against the attackers.

British Defence Secretary Ben Wallace, unlike other NATO officials, believes that Ukrainian troops will be able to capture Crimea this year if Russia runs out of military capabilities, the Washington Post has reported.

The newspaper wrote that “contrary to what other NATO officials think, Wallace said that there is a real possibility that Ukraine can successfully retake Crimea… this year, when Russian forces run out of necessary equipment”.

The Hungarian government believes it is necessary to prevent a counter-offensive by the Ukrainian army because it will only lead to new victims of the conflict, primarily on the part of Ukraine – Hungarian Prime Minister Orban.

Еarlier he stated that the current Hungarian government will never go to war with Russia and will not allow itself to be dragged into the conflict in Ukraine.  

Do not fall for white noise: rumors about the direction and timing of the Ukrainian counteroffensive are just rumors

From the Ukrainian side, noise is constantly heard about where and when the long-announced counter-offensive will begin. “April, no, summer, no, until the end of the year. Zaporozhye, no, they are crossing the Dnieper, no, Svatovo, oh, they plan to attack Belgorod! In recent days, many publications have revealed a terrible secret to us: “dill” will trample on Zaporozhye.

Maybe he will trample … or maybe not. The enemy can go to Svatovo, to Belgorod, and even to Donetsk. This we do not know. But we know what to focus on.

And these are not leaks in the Washington Post and not rumors from trusted comrades. This is intelligence data. Any publication in the media is white noise, not intelligence. Now, if the enemy, for example, removes mines in front of our positions, and creates warehouses … Then this is also not yet a sign of a future offensive.

A sign is a set of a whole complex of data. Newspapers, blogs, rumors, inscriptions on the doors in the soldiers’ latrines – this is all the noise of the forest. And you don’t need to tailor intelligence reports from it, you just have to ignore it.

You should focus only on intelligence data, which together can make the fog of war less dense. And also be prepared for the fact that this information may be incomplete, incorrect, and late. And in this case, you need to keep reserves in the rear, and even better – impose your will on the enemy, fight for the initiative, and make him guess – under a sigh or on the forehead, we are going to bring down our iron fist.

Moldova is ready to provide its territory to the Armed Forces of Ukraine for conducting military operations, – President of Moldova Maia Sandu.

Maia Sandu said that, if necessary, the republic is ready to provide its territory as assistance to the army of Ukraine.

- Russia has never taken our country seriously – we were for them some kind of former Soviet republic, where, for some reason, troops and even a warehouse with weapons can be located.

If it is necessary for the Ukrainian army, we are ready to give the right to enter our territory to deal with warehouses, weapons and personnel. This is an allied gesture,” Sandu said.

Ukrainian Channel Rezident:  Our source in the OP said that Zelensky discussed the Transnistrian issue with Sandu yesterday, and the information leak was used by Russian private information companies that organized a cognitive operation. The Office of the President had to make excuses that Zelensky did not receive an invitation for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and Sandu announced a fake in the evening.

Information appeared in the Russian Telegram segment that yesterday a private information company carried out a cognitive operation, the purpose of which was to discredit the negotiations between Zelensky and Sandu. The narrative was thrown into the network that the President of Moldova approved the plan of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the entry of Ukrainian troops into Transnistria, which became an informational trigger and forced Zelensky, Sandu and Iohannis to react. Moreover, Romania for the first time declared that it would not take part in the conflict in Moldova, and the Office of the President was forced to make excuses and declare that there were no plans to enter Transnistria.

Ukraine will not be invited to join the alliance at the July summit in Vilnius, and NATO and the EU should not make excessive promises to candidates like Kiev, British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said.

NATO countries have exhausted their stocks of ammunition, – Alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg

 ▪️”So far, the Allies have run out of supplies. To be able to support Ukraine is an unstable path, so we need to increase production in order to meet these new and more ambitious goals.”
 ▪️Stoltenberg stressed that now NATO countries should spend at least 2% of GDP on defense.

The United States once again “hinted” to Kyiv, expressing confidence that they had met the needs of Ukraine to launch an offensive

NATO Gestapo starts to form administrations of lost territories, with Mariupol first in line

This was reported by Ukrainian media quoting Pavlo Kyrylenko, the “head” of the Donetsk regional state administration appointed by the Kiev regime.

“Military administrations will be set up gradually in all occupied territories so that the authorities can then enter the territories as quickly as possible once they have been liberated. The focus now is the Mariupol district, the city of Mariupol,” Kirilenko said. 

Personnel, weapons and equipment from the combined arms and tank formations of the Russian Armed Forces are arriving in Belarus. This is done in the interests of increasing the defense capability of the Union State.

As noted by the Belarusian Ministry of Defense, a planned rotation of military units and units of the Russian component of the joint grouping of troops is being carried out.

 Conflict in Ukraine has reached a stalemate, says China’s chief negotiator on Ukraine Li Hui

 In his opinion, the parties “will not be easy” to get together for productive negotiations, according to Bloomberg

US welcomes any initiative on Ukraine that brings Russia to negotiating table – Blinken

The US has been trying to freeze the conflict sinse Bakhmut. They are betting on this slow burning fire to break the Russian society by getting the people tired and upset. The good news is we are aware this tactics and no freezing will be allowed.

UKRAINE LAUNCHED ANOTHER ATTACK INTO BELGOROD ; Russia’s devastated Ukr attack, abandoning operation

Putin’s men blow up over 50 Ukrainians as they try to ‘sneak into’ Russia | Watch Gunbattle Unfold

Pundits argue about the way Russia’s invasion is going

Putin signals, leadership change in Kiev


Everyone understands this is a terrorist attack.

It does not fit into any rules of war.

What is the purpose of this attack?
Cause damage to the civilian population.

Those funds that were used cannot cause damage to military facilities or any objects of state control.

Thus, the goal is simple to cause damage to the civilian population.

This is an act of terrorism and there’s no other way to qualify it.

If this is an act of terrorism, then there is only one way to respond to it.

As you know, no state negotiates with terrorists.

Terrorists must be destroyed.

The fact that our enemy behaves like a terrorist characterizes the Ukrainian regime and those behind it.

These are Americans and Europeans who have become with us on the warpath.

Terrorist attacks must be dealt with as harshly as possible.

This Special Military Operation has essentially turned into a counter-terrorist war.

We fight the terrorists who kill our people.

It is clear what will be the answer they must be destroyed. Not only in a personal capacity, but also we must destroy the very hornet’s nest.

The regime that has developed in Ukraine is subject to extermination.

It must be destroyed or else there will be a constant threat coming from there.

And we will have to constantly carry out an operation just like the one that has already been carried out for more than a year. There should be no doubt.

Now I would like to talk about the fun stuff, i.e. this morning’s PR action by “Mom’s Treasure” Budanov’s army. All night long those  “good russians” were driving their equipment and in the morning two  tanks jumped out at the border near Novaya Tavolzhanka. Fire was opened at them, tanks turned in the opposite direction, but one stopped and the crew jumped out of it.

They hopped out, hoisted the flag of the so-called “free Russia” on the tank, took a photo and as soon as they decided to go back, a shell exploded next to them. The crew of Mom’s Treasure’s army threw the car with the flag and ran to the forest. At that moment our artillery hit the second tank and it burst into flames.

As a result: the clowns has a photo with a tank with a rag of “free Russia” hanging on it, but they paid for this photo with two tanks. The abandoned one is still standing with the hatches open and the flag waving, the second one burnt down. Budanov’s doctrine continues to work: the photo and videotape are exchanged for destroyed and destroyed equipment and lost personnel.

“The enemy went exactly to capture”: the officer spoke about repulsing an attempted breakthrough in Shebekino

The commander of the motorized rifle battalion, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Nikitin, whose fighters repelled the AFU attack on Shebekino, told the details of the battle.

After the artillery preparation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with the use of MLRS, ours heard the sound of equipment on the Seversky Donets River and raised the quadcopter, finding the enemy unit. There was a group of infantry and engineering obstacle vehicles. Our troops inflicted a fire defeat on them, repelling the attack.

During the observation, another sabotage detachment of 40 militants, a motorized infantry company, and a tank company were discovered. They opened fire with artillery and anti-tank weapons.

This attack was also reflected, without losses.

All fighters of the Western Military District proved themselves worthy, distinguished themselves in repelling the attack, and were awarded state awards.

In the evening, the enemy from the Grad MLRS fired at the village of Sobolevka, Valuysky urban district.

According to preliminary data, two people died, six more people were injured, they were taken to the hospital, they are receiving medical care.

Two men have multiple shrapnel wounds, one of them is in serious condition, the second is in a state of moderate severity.

The women have shrapnel wounds to their lower extremities, both of them are in stable condition.

A 13-year-old boy with a broken left shoulder and an 11-year-old girl with shrapnel wounds to the left eye were also taken to the hospital.

As a result of a direct hit of a rocket, an outbuilding and a garage are on fire, firefighters are engaged in the elimination of the source of the flame.

Four more residential buildings were also damaged: their roofs and fences were riddled, windows were broken.

Brief summary of the situation at the front. Kharkov direction.

Tonight, a high-precision weapon hit the base of the so-called “Kraken” battalion in Kharkov.

According to intelligence, at the time of the strike, not only members of the Kraken were present at the base point, but also their coordinators, as well as some members of the RDC banned in the Russian Federation.

From the radio interception of the enemy’s conversations, it follows that we are talking about several dozen killed and wounded militants.
When new information about the losses of the enemy appears, we will supplement the news.

Suggestion for Solving the Security Problems⚡️

🔹 To secure #Shebekino, it is necessary to liberate #Volchansk.

🔹 To secure the #Belgorod region, it is necessary to liberate #Kharkov.

🔹 To secure the #Kursk and #Bryansk regions, it is necessary to liberate the #Sumy and #Chernigov regions.

🔹 To secure #Russia and stop the ethnocide of Russians, it is necessary to eliminate the Ukrainian state completely.

Situation at the Borders with #Belgorod Region until 15:00 on 2 Jun 2023⚡️

🔹 The cannonade in the #Belgorod region has not stopped. Ukrainian militants are still shelling towns and settlements. A convoy of civilians has been hit today while evacuating.

▪️ In the morning there was information about an attempted breakthrough by a SRG of up to 100 men at the #Urazovo – #Verigovka section, but field sources have denied this.

▪️ Despite the throw-in, the concentration of Ukrainian forces remains high. Artillery pieces have been moved to #Ugroyedy and Verkhnyaya Syrovatovka, and 979 men from the AFU’s 129th Territorial Defence Brigade from the Donetsk direction have reportedly arrived in #Sumy region.

▪️ It is highly probable that the forces of the 129th Brigade will partially replace the units of the 117th TD Brigade, which have lost more than 100 men in recent days. 800 members of the AFU’s 92nd Mechanized Brigade have been stationed in #Chuguyev and Klugino-Bashkirovka.

🔹 In another section near Novaya Tavolzhanka, AFU formations under the legend of the “Free Russia” separatists tried to conduct a PR campaign to show “successful fight against Russian power”, for which they paid the price. Russian artillery destroyed ( two AFU tanks.


➖ Tank №1: 50.313287, 36.81868
➖ Tank №2: 50.317187, 36.812619

Nevertheless, attempts to breach the border by assault groups will continue. There are 25 enemy DRGs in combat readiness near the #Belgorod region.

And there is still an AFU crossing over the Pechenezhskoye Reservoir, through which several tanks passed into the #Volchansk district just yesterday. Along with this, the AFU are freely installing a bridge in #Fedorovka.

📌 Cutting off the Ukrainian supply lines will significantly reduce their combat capabilities, including in shelling Russian towns and their inhabitants. Pontoons and bridges must be destroyed first.

Fate is, so to say, bizarre. Most recently, Klitschko called for a hit on Moscow and now finds himself on the verge of resignation for failing to make bomb shelters in Kiev work properly..

What is known about the strike on the headquarters of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine in Kiev

The attack on the decision-making centers in Kiev was inflicted as early as May 30, and the circumstances of the defeat of the targets caused heated debate.

How was this attack prepared?

Two days before the missile attack on the GUR building, Kiev was attacked by drones. In total, about 40 UAVs were recorded, some of which were probably used to open camouflaged positions of air defense systems. It is known that the area of Rybalsky Island, where the GUR buildings are located, was covered by the crews of the IRIS-T and Patriot air defense systems from the territory of the Muromets park.

According to some reports, after a massive drone raid on May 27 and 28, a significant part of the Kiev air defense ammunition was used up, and by the morning of May 30, the calculations of the air defense systems were waiting for the delivery of new ammunition and were not ready to fire.

What weapon was used to strike?

There are several main versions of what was applied to the power steering building.

Version one. Judging by the presence of two sets of stabilizers, a Kh-35U subsonic anti-ship missile with the ability to work on ground targets got into the CCTV footage. It differs from the anti-aircraft missiles of the Patriot systems both in size and in the layout of the stabilizers. In addition, Patriot missiles do not fall to the ground in a dive mode and could not “accidentally fall” on the GUR complex in Kiev, as some bloggers previously wrote.

Version two. From the side of the water in the area of the power steering building, a P-800 Oniks missile of the Bastion coastal complex flew in with a launch range of 300-400 km. Its speed and ability to maneuver with large overloads made it possible to carry out such an attack.

What conclusions can be drawn?

First and most important, there could be several missiles. Some of them were supposed to hit air defense facilities, the other – the GUR building on Rybalsky Island.

At the same time, the hit of the missile, identified as Kh-35U or P-800, does not occur in a random place, but a few meters from the parking lot, under which, presumably, another important object could be located.

The use of two missiles at first glance looks logical but requires a creative, non-standard approach to planning the operation.

An approximate strike scheme looks like this: the first missile breaks through the ceilings of the administrative building or explodes at a depth of several meters without damaging the building, after which the exit to the surface and the transition between zero levels are blocked.

The second strike the necessary object from the side of the water, causing the underground utilities to be flooded along with the officers on duty.

It is also worth noting the low effectiveness of the NASAMS, IRIS-T SLM, and Patriot PAC-3 MSE air defense systems at the time of a massive strike by X-35U and/or P-800 Onyx missiles. Why?

Both types of missiles can be equipped with electronic warfare stations. The onboard electronic warfare station of these missiles can interfere with the AN / MPQ-53, AN / MPQ-64 Sentinel, and TRML-4D radars deployed near Kiev.

Another secret of the GUR bunker in Kiev has been revealed. Why didn’t the Russians hit him before?

The military intelligence headquarters of Ukraine in the capital of Ukraine was covered by the blow by captured Russian soldiers. Therefore, this object was not hit before, explained the ex-deputy of the Rada Oleg Tsarev

A strike on the GUR bunker has been demanded for a long time because it was there that all terrorist attacks against Russia were planned. The building should have been one of the top targets. However, with a blow, they dragged on for more than a year.

“As far as I know, they refrained from strikes, because the GUR kept Russian prisoners of war there, as if hiding behind them,” Oleg Anatolyevich said.

Since the blow nevertheless took place, it can be assumed that the moment was chosen when there were no Russian prisoners in the building.

On June 2, almost all 99% of the Wagner PMC units left Bakhmut. All positions have been handed over to the Ministry of Defense in due course. No questions, no comments

Fighting on the flanks of Artyomovsk: deployed reinforcements stopped the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

The units of the Russian army deployed from other directions are conducting heavy defensive battles on the flanks near Artyomovsk (Bakhmut).

In the Kurdyumovka-Ozeryanovka area, the enemy regularly tries to attack with small armored groups, Russian troops are actively inflicting fire damage on the attackers and the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the landings.

The offensive potential of the enemy has noticeably decreased but attempts to attack do not stop.

Chasov Yar. The situation according to the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

Ukrainian militants say that only that part of the population that is waiting for Russian troops has remained in the town.

New Phase Begins | Full Update Week 22

Multiple Russian advances on the Front [2 June 2023]

The Russians Are Advancing On Kupyansk And Marinka.

WAR UPDATE: Russian PUSH Towards Kupyansk

Putin’s men set to capture Maryinka; How Russian snipers shot down Ukrainian troops in hiding

In the Kupyansk direction, strikes from the Solntsepek TOS destroyed up to a platoon of manpower of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and a tank in the defense zone of the 1st Tank Army

Two attempts of the the enemy to attack are repelled in the Molchanov area, said Sergei Zybinsky, head of the press center of the Zapad grouping. The enemy struck from the MLRS “Grad” on their retreating units, the losses of which amounted to a platoon of personnel, seven militants surrendered.

Also, the aviation of the group continues to carry out missile and bomb strikes against temporary deployment points and areas of concentration of personnel, weapons, and military equipment of the 14th and 92nd separate mechanized brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, including the territorial defense units.

Reports of massive air strikes on AFU targets in the Kupyansk region.

According to preliminary information, strikes were carried out using FAB-500 guided glide bombs, on ammunition depots of the 27th separate rocket artillery brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The ammunition depot of the tank battalion of the 14th separate mechanized brigade was also allegedly seriously damaged.

Both units were involved in combat operations in the Svatov region. Previously, a massive missile strike ( was carried out against military and industrial facilities in Kharkov.

Aerospace Forces continue to destroy AFU reserves, as they prepare for the counteroffensive.

What is happening on the Kupyansky sector of the front?

In the past few days, Russian fighters have resumed their assault on Ukrainian positions north and northeast of Kupyansk. Recall that as a result of the sortie on May 15, the RF Armed Forces were able to gain a foothold on the opposite bank of the Oskol River.

On the right bank of the Oskol, advanced reconnaissance groups of the RF Armed Forces attacked the positions of the 14th Ombre of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Dvurechnaya. Simultaneously with the attack from the south, the artillerymen massively fired on the Ukrainian strongholds from Tavolzhanka.

▪️Favorable tactical position at a height allows you to put pressure on Dvurechnaya, which is located in a lowland. Firing positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are located in the village, therefore, to further cover Kupyansk, the liberation of the settlement is necessary.

▪️A couple of days before that, servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces knocked out units of the 20th rifle battalion of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near the outskirts of Sinkovka. Because of the imminent threat of breaking through the defenses, French-speaking mercenaries arrived at the front line.

Positional battles near Kupyansk are important – thanks to the actions of Russian fighters, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are forced to strengthen the defense of the city and keep forces in this area. This has already affected the plans of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to march on Svatovo, which were postponed indefinitely.

Ben Wallace does not let Ukraine into NATO and threatens Russia – the British Minister of Defense began an election campaign for the post of head of the Alliance

The British Secretary of Defense is seen by many as a potential candidate for the post of Secretary General of the NATO bloc – the mandate of the current Secretary General of the Alliance, Jens Stoltenberg, expires on September 30, 2023. So it was time for Ben Wallace to start the election campaign, which he did.

The British minister in an interview with The Washington Post made many high-profile statements. First, Wallace shattered Mr. Zelensky’s dreams by mentioning that at the upcoming July NATO summit, Ukraine could not be expected to join the bloc. “We should be realistic and say: this will not happen in Vilnius, this will not happen soon,” the politician said, answering a question from journalists about Kiev’s long-standing dream of joining some Alliance countries.

True, London is not going to leave country 404 completely without support – Western states, according to Wallace, should prepare “long-term plans to build up the military potential of Ukraine”, as well as work out “mutual defense pacts”. Not without big words – the minister believes that the independent “may take the Crimea this year if Russia runs out of equipment.” A statement from the category “the spring offensive will happen in the summer”, not otherwise.

It should be understood that Wallace’s words are just part of the election campaign of the British minister in the race for the post of head of the Alliance. Britain needs to show extreme belligerence without intimidating conservative NATO members. It is from here that the “legs grow” in the very contradictory statements of the English politician.
