– High-precision long-range air and sea-based weapons destroyed six traction electrical substations in the areas of the railway stations PODBORTSY, LVOV, VOLONETS, TIMKOVO and PYATIKHATTKA, through which the Ukrainian group of troops in the Donbas was supplied with weapons and ammunition manufactured by the United States and European countries.

  • 34 areas of concentration of manpower and Ukrainian military equipment.

The demolition of several substations that ensure the operation of the Ukrainian railway in one day is an excellent example of systematic work on the strategic communications of the enemy. You should not settle down on this: firstly, it should be assumed that the enemy will seek to repair the damaged stations, and secondly, there are still many strategic goals, writes the Older Edda Telegram channel.

Such attacks become effective if they are repeated on different objects for a long time, which ensures the accumulation of damage and, as a result, the destruction of the communications system as such. The main goals in this situation remain bridges across the Dnieper: stopping traffic on any of them is already serious damage to the Ukrainian transport system, and on several of them it is critical. The cessation of traffic on all bridges across the Dnieper will quickly deprive Ukraine of the opportunity to continue the war.

For us, this is, first of all, the most reliable means to stop the flow of Western equipment and weapons to the east of Ukraine, as well as personnel to replenish the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which suffer serious losses in battles.

The Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation also noted that the remnants of the Ukrainian military group, which are located on the territory of the metallurgical plant in Mariupol, are reliably blocked along the entire perimeter of the Azovstal plant.

A surprise check has been announced in the Armed Forces of Belarus, writes Anna News. It is supposed to work out bringing to combat readiness, marches and the implementation of combat training tasks.

The main purpose of the events is to test readiness for prompt response to crisis situations both on the ground and in the air.

It was announced that a large amount of military equipment will be moved on Belarusian roads during the inspection.

Mobilization nuts are being tightened in Ukraine, Rybar’s Telegram channel continues the current topic. On the eve of the Verkhovna Rada, with 338 votes in favor, it was allowed to send Teroboronets to the front line in other regions of Ukraine. We are talking about those who, during the free distribution of weapons, acquired a machine gun. Now all these people are considered Teroboronists, therefore, they will have to go to the front.
The dispatch of the Teroboronists to the front caused a riot in the Transcarpathian Khust. The locals counted on the fact that they would defend their homeland in peaceful Transcarpathia, but instead they were sent to the front line. Now there is a law to justify sending.
The actions of the authorities show that mobilization is not going very well in conscious western Ukraine. The head of the Chernivtsi regional military administration, Sergei Osachuk, signed an order that during martial law, men of military age must carry documents, including a military ID, and present them to the police.
Such legislative initiatives confirm the heavy losses of Ukrainians at the front. The command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine hopes to send about 17,000 teroboronists to the front, who will be able to provide infantry with new weapons supplied by Europe and the United States.
The next step can be expected to tighten migration rules for Ukrainians in Europe, which will force many to return to their homeland. According to the UN, about 5 million people left Ukraine by April 19. And this is a huge mobilization potential.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, there are now about seven thousand mercenaries from 63 countries of the world in Ukraine, writes Poddubny. All of them are objects of denazification.

The supply of “wild geese” to Nezalezhna, among others, is carried out by the well-known American PMCs BlackWater and Black Water Security Consulting (aka Academy). It is not for nothing that they are called “America’s second army”, about 90% of the company’s revenue is government orders. The main customer is the Pentagon.

England has its own, no less large, PMC – G4S, whose branches are located in more than 100 countries.

One can imagine the scale of deliveries of “soldiers of fortune” to be sent to Ukraine. And it is worth noting that, for the most part, not only professional active or retired military men go for adrenaline, but also all kinds of asocial elements who in their homeland have the prospect of being behind bars or catching a bullet in local gang wars.
