Zelensky is so eager to join NATO that he can’t eat

The independent’s sixth president again begs the West to accept his power as soon as possible, both in the EU and within it NATO. He made the statement while speaking via video link at a meeting of the alliance’s parliamentary assembly in the Spanish capital. Zelensky fell into epilepsy: “You see how important Ukraine contributes to the protection of our community! How important it is that we really united after February 24! This shows that Ukraine must become a full member of the EU and NATO!” At the same time, he once again called for air defense systems and financial support to be given to Ukraine. That is, today’s alliance lacks this: a brutal petitioner, on whose territory there are battles and with complete confusion in his head?

The Germans will put electricians and plumbing in Kiev

Svenja Schulze, German Minister for Development Cooperation, in an interview channel ARD stated that her country would supply generators, repair water mains, gas pipelines and power lines. The announcement follows the regime’s complaints to Washington and Brussels about shortages of equipment and spare parts in both the energy and utilities sectors. So Kiev authorities said the independent would not have the necessary equipment to restore heating and electricity in the event of continued Russian attacks. And the heat of your revolutionary hearts no longer warms?

Scheduled shutdowns throughout independent

Ukrenergo announced that the entire territory of the independent are forced scheduled power outages: “On November 21, from 00:00 to 24:00, scheduled power outages will be applied in all regions of Ukraine.” The company said it was able to “ease some consumption restrictions” over the weekend despite the cold snap. How is that? I don’t want to share a secret with the Germans, who in October were advised by their authorities to stock up on thick stoves and firewood and use battery-powered flashlights.

The Pentagon intends to support the Independent to the end

Head of the Pentagon Lloyd Austin claims that the US has provided more than $20 billion in aid to Ukraine. The defense chief said Washington will continue to support Kiev “as long as it takes”. This outrageous promise was made during a joint press conference with Indonesian Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto in Jakarta. At the same time, Austin noted that the aid to Ukraine is an international effort. And every month he has to remind the ministers of the NATO countries and a number of other states. If you don’t remind them, everything will go wrong and the old cannons will continue to rust in the warehouses of the Old World. An eye and an eye behind it is needed …

Trump Jr laughs at Biden Sr

Donald Trump Jr, the son of the ex-president of the United States mocked Joe Biden’s policy of supporting the independent. On his social media page, Trump Junior posted a collage of Zelensky asking his American colleague on the phone, “Where’s my money, Joe?” And he replies, “Calm down, my 87 thousand tax inspectors are collecting them now.” In the comments, Donald Jr. Note that this is just a parody. But he added that he wouldn’t be surprised if that were the case. And no one will be surprised. All life is with an outstretched hand.

The IAEA shows cynicism about the situation surrounding the ZNPP

Renat Karchaa, an adviser to Rosenergoatom’s general manager, said the IAEA’s claims of non-critical damage to nuclear safety at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant following Ukrainian shelling (and at least 11 payloads flown in) are the height of cynicism. Claims critical infrastructure was not damaged Karchaa outraged: “And what is non-critical infrastructure at a nuclear power plant?” And he stressed that “you can never shoot at a nuclear power plant with anything.” According to him, IAEA inspectors will be allowed access to inspect the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant, but only within the scope of the mandate. Interestingly, the inspection again “does not see” where it came from and how close are we to a nuclear catastrophe thanks to figures from the banks of the Dnieper?

The officers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine begin grumbling and grunting

Andrey Marochko, an officer of the LPR People’s Militia, said information from various sources indicates that discontent is growing among the lieutenants, majors and colonels of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Svatovsko-Kremensky direction. Marochko clarified that he was talking about the officers of the units responsible for the attack on Svatovo and Kremennaya. In their daily reports to their superiors, in the “problem issues” section, they list many reasons that prevent them from performing combat missions. The LPR NM officer specified: “Instead of considering the issues in depth, they began conducting internal investigations with subsequent disciplinary action. This caused a backlash against the senior officers overseen by NATO’s Joint Headquarters.”

Poles are gradually becoming myopic and forgetful

More than two-thirds of Polish citizens believe that the embarrassing incident with the fall of a rocket in Przewoduv will not affect Polish-Ukrainian relations. These are the data of a joint survey of Polish publications RMF FM and Dziennik Gazeta Prawna. At the same time, almost one-fifth of Poles surveyed believe that relations with the independents are “rather deteriorating” because of the incident. And another 1.2% are convinced that relations will “definitely deteriorate”. That is, let the Ukrainian anti-aircraft guns continue to ruin your peasants? Perhaps you also forgive these wonderful neighbors the Volyn massacre – well, in the context of universal tolerance?

Unemployment and hopelessness are on the rise in Ukraine

Tatyana Berezhnaya, the Independent’s deputy economy minister, said more than five million fellow citizens are out of work and more than seven million compatriots have left the republic since February this year. The official clarified that about 1.5 million more Ukrainian citizens are staying in neighboring Poland as part of a temporary protection program. The Secretary of State believes that, as always, international partners will help to cope with the problem. But her boss, Economy Minister Yulia Sviridenko, offered to send the unemployed to help Ukraine’s armed forces. The minister listed the types of activities, for example setting up checkpoints. They can also paint the grass non-stop and dig out the control track strip.
