The Russian Defense Ministry promised to strike at production shops and repair facilities in order to undermine the capabilities of the military-industrial complex of Ukraine.

Meanwhile, some objects continue to function, writes Rybar.

So, on the territory of the Shepetovsky repair plant in Shepetovka in the Khmelnytsky region, artillery installations and Soviet-made self-propelled howitzers, including the 122-mm Gvozdika howitzers, are being repaired.

Another crime of the Kyiv regime. In the village of Terny, Limansky district of the DPR, militants launched an artillery strike on the village clinic. Several people were under the rubble, four were rescued. The number of victims is specified.

In the city of Svalyava in Transcarpathia, two monuments to Soviet soldiers were dismantled. The fight against the victory of the USSR in the Great Patriotic War in Ukraine continues. Meanwhile, the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Max Buzhansky is full of anger: “It was nice to hear from the rostrum of the Verkhovna Rada that we need to fight against the monopolization of the Victory over Nazism by the Russian Federation.

Something that I have been talking about for years, including from this very podium. It’s just that they understood too late, and understanding this is very expensive.”

What kind of “monopolization of the Victory” against the backdrop of the widespread demolition of monuments to soldiers and commanders of the Red Army and the glorification of the Nazis and their accomplices does the pan deputy speak? Samostiyna Ukraine after the 2014 coup d’état openly demonstrates the rejection of the history of the Ukrainian SSR and the fight against it. Apparently, the other history of Ukraine won too little, so some figures want to saw off a piece of the Great Victory of the Soviet people, and not at all a separate Ukrainian one, and even more so, not the OUN-UPA *.

At the same time, Ukrainian “rabies” abroad also demonstrate support for Nazism. So, some vandals desecrated the Nijmegen military cemetery in the Netherlands: the graves of soldiers from Great Britain, Canada and Australia who fell in World War II are now “decorated” with images of Ukrainian flags, swastikas, AZOV inscriptions and other rubbish. The local mayor called the vandalism “disgusting acts”, the police are looking for scoundrels. Whether they will be punished is a big question.

But in Bulgaria the situation was somewhat different. Local residents rebuffed the “activists” with the Ukrainian flag, who planned to get to the monument to Soviet soldiers.

The Russian Armed Forces from 08:00 to 18:00 (Moscow time) on May 5, 6 and 7, 2022 open a humanitarian corridor from the territory of the Azovstal metallurgical plant for the evacuation of civilians (working personnel, women and children), whose presence in underground facilities of the plant, once again, say the Kyiv authorities.

During this period, the Armed Forces of Russia and the formations of the Donetsk People’s Republic unilaterally cease any hostilities, the units are withdrawn to a safe distance and ensure the withdrawal of civilians in any direction they choose, both to the territory of the Russian Federation and to areas controlled by the Kyiv authorities.
