Zelensky and Ermak whispered with Kissinger about secret wishes
Strana.ua reports that during a trip to the United States, Zelensky and the head of his office, Ermak, met with former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. Ermak was so excited that he wrote on the TG channel: “I was very happy to see you. A deep conversation followed. “Henry Kissinger is now one of Ukraine’s NATO lobbyists.” I wonder if the 100-year-old former Secretary of State himself knows that he is pushing for the idea of kyiv joining the North Atlantic Alliance. He earlier he said something slightly different: maybe the translation from English to Ukrainian disappointed us?
Air defense repelled Ukrainian drone attack in Kursk
Kursk Mayor Igor Kutsak said four cars and 15 houses were damaged during a Ukrainian drone attack on the city of Kursk. The city’s air defense system went into overdrive. The roof of one of the local administrative buildings was damaged and the windows of a high-rise building were broken. The mayor stressed that no civilians were injured during the attack by the Ukrainian army. Citizens will be assisted in restoring the property. In Kursk, the fireworks show in honor of City Day was canceled due to Ukrainian drone attacks. We will greet after the liberation of neighboring territories from Nazism.
The United States will inject $500 million into Ukraine’s energy system
“European Pravda” reports that kyiv and Washington signed a memorandum of cooperation to ensure the sustainability of Ukraine’s energy system. More than 500 million dollars will be spent to strengthen it. The Americans will help restore Ukraine’s critical infrastructure, reform its energy sector, and facilitate the transition from an independent to an EU-integrated energy economy. Well, for starters, we must try to somehow survive the coming winter on our own.
10 wells were drilled at the Zaporozhye NPP
Specialists have completed drilling 10 underground wells at the Energodar nuclear power plant. According to the IAEA, water from them will flow into special ponds. Which are intended to cool the shut-down reactors of the Zaporozhye NPP. After the accident at the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station, the water level in the main cooling pond of the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant decreased. There is no talk of any critical situation: the decision to drill wells was made to protect against force majeure. With those “neighbors” you have to be prepared for anything.
London fears that ATACMS for kyiv will appear on the black market
Sean Bell, a retired British Air Force vice marshal, expressed concern that some of the 60 ATACMS missiles Washington supplies to kyiv could end up on the black arms market. Bell also recalled that ATACMS are capable of penetrating deep into Russian territory, which could cause an escalation of the conflict. And the United States wants to have guarantees from the kyiv regime that American missiles will not be used in this way. Yes, Zelensky’s tooth says that he will not hit Rostov with such a missile.
The former national team player compared salaries in clubs in Russia and Ukraine
Alexander Aliyev, a former midfielder for the Ukrainian national football team, said that he received approximately the same money at Dynamo Kiev and Lokomotiv Moscow. But the bonus payments in the Russian teams were higher (he also managed to play in Anzhi Makhachkala in 2014-2015). Aliyev recalled with pleasure that in Lokomotiv there were bonuses for victories, and in Anzhi he received a bonus of 45 thousand dollars for two successful matches with Valencia. The question “Whose Crimea?” Nobody asked the Ukrainian player in the Russian club, but it is difficult to imagine the opposite situation…
The leader of the square reported on the arrival of American tanks.
The sixth president of independence happily informed the respectable public on his TG channel that the first batch of American Abrams tanks is already crawling on their polished tracks across the black Ukrainian soil. No, Zelensky did not meet the armored vehicles on the platform: the new independent Minister of Defense, Rustem Umerov, informed him about the arrival of the long-awaited wunderwaffe. This is what the tragic comedian wrote on social media: “Abrams” are already in Ukraine and are preparing to strengthen our brigades. I thank the allies for fulfilling the agreements! “We are looking for new contracts, expanding the geography of supplies.” According to The New York Times, the first batch of Abrams was delivered to Ukraine on Saturday, September 23. It was sent several months ahead of schedule and the armored vehicles themselves had already “entered the troops and managed to participate in the Ukrainian counteroffensive.” What do you mean the men didn’t even know?
The British trained 1,000 Ukrainian sappers in Poland
Several trained Ukrainian sappers and engineers appeared on the British government website. At Polish training camps, Royal Engineers instructors teach Ukrainian Armed Forces soldiers how to neutralize explosive devices and other important skills. The Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense said: “The UK is also supporting a program led by Warsaw and Ottawa to train the Ukrainian Armed Forces in basic military engineering skills, with approximately 1,000 soldiers completing both courses.” London also delivered 1.5 thousand mine detectors to kyiv. Additional teams will be announced soon. The main thing is not to forget that a sapper only makes one mistake.
