The war has crossed the border and entered the territory of the Russian Federation. Kremlin is not successful at intimidating Russians who are fed up with tyranny and are no longer afraid of threats. This morning, in Moscow, 7 automobiles with "Z" symbols were burned down. Link:

Yesterday, an ammo depot in Belgorod was destroyed, allegedly by the Ukrainian air force, however, that claim hasn't been confirmed as valid, yet. FSB shared a few pictures of Bayraktar TB2 UAVs of the Ukrainian air force, that were allegedly shot down in regions Kursk, and Belgorod, however, our (Ukrainian) Intel Services shared an order by the Kremlin, which forces Russian military personnel to literally collect parts of downed Ukrainian aircraft and bring them to Russia, in order to create fakes, which would eventually be used as "proofs" that Ukrainian air force is carrying out attacks against positions in Russia.

For instance, a few days ago, an oil depot was destroyed in Bryansk. Of course, Kremlin blamed it on Ukraine, but the surveillance camera confirmed that the depot was sabotaged. Here is a full video:

00:06 - you can see a leakage and a tiny explosion. I believe this particular oil depot was sabotaged.

I can confirm that the Armed Forces of Ukraine successfully carried out the task of blowing up the Russian ammo depot in Irmino (Luhansk region). The culprit behind the explosion of the ammo depot in Belgorod hasn't been revealed, yet, so, I will not be making audacious claims, such as "FSB did it!" or "Ukrainian Air Force did it!", instead, let me share a quote by Mr. Mikhail Podolyak, an adviser to the president of Ukraine: "The intensity of demilitarization of the Russian Federation, especially in the border areas, in my opinion, will only increase significantly in the coming weeks. Karma is a cruel thing."

In Kursk, explosions indeed were reported at about 3 am (April 27th):

This morning, the occupiers, as a result of the assault actions, have gained a foothold in the Tavrichesky area, and are trying to produce a fiery defeat on the positions of our troops in the areas of Alexandrovka and Nova Zorya. They're also preparing for an offensive on Severodonetsk. - General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

Izyum: a sabotage group of local residents engaged in battle with the occupiers, carrying out special tasks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. One of the saboteurs was killed, however, the mission has been accomplished. During the battle, about a dozen of Russian soldiers were neutralized. Yesterday morning, in the Izyum direction, Russian troops captured the outskirts of the settlement of Velyka Komyshuvakha, took control of the Factories, and conducted offensive operations in the direction of Barvinkovo. Russians transferred two battalions from the territory of the Belgorod region (Russia) to the city of Izyum (Ukraine). In addition, the enemy deployed two missile divisions equipped with the Iskander-M systems in the Belgorod region.

In the Lyman direction, the Russian army established control over Zarichne and stormed the areas of Yampil - General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

In the Severodonetsk direction, Russian troops have established control over the settlement Novotoshkivs'ke, and are conducting an offensive in the direction of Nizhny and Orikhovo - the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

In the direction of Huliaipole (Zaporizhzhia region), the enemy has significantly slowed down its progress, and in some areas, it is not moving at all.

Kherson: tonight the TV tower got hit by a missile. As the result, Russian TV channels stopped working in the Kherson region after the explosion. Video:

Severodonetsk: yesterday, the city's hospital was shelled by the Russians. One lady tragically lost her life. Several medical personnel got wounded. Video:

Avdiivka: Residential buildings were hit with phosphorous shells (which are prohibited by the Geneva convention)! Pictures can be found here:

"There are several extremely difficult weeks ahead. Russia has already accumulated forces for a large-scale offensive in eastern Ukraine and will try to cause Ukraine as much pain as possible. Assistance to Ukraine will grow, but in the coming days, we will need all of our resilience and unity." - Defense minister, Alexey Reznikov

In mid-May, the LRN and DNR will hold a referendum on joining the Russian Federation. Kherson region will hold a referendum on the creation of the "Kherson People's Republic".

Our faith in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, our defenders, and our partners will not weaken! Arestovic explains why: Let me remind you that the leading experts of the military world gave the Ukrainian Air Force three hours to exist. These are even those who were very optimistic. One on the 63rd day, our aircraft continues to deliver crushing blows to the enemy. And this is a feat that will be studied in all military academies around the world. (April 27th, 2022)

British Intel services confirm! Russians failed to destroy the Ukrainian air force and air defense. Ukraine controls most of its airspace.

Military Transfers

A column of Romanian military vehicles has been spotted, moving towards Ukraine. Hopefully, those vehicles will be handed over to the Ukrainian armed forces. Video:

Australian Bushmaster armored vehicles have already been deployed in Ukraine:

Also, Australia will deliver M777 howitzers, together with ammunition:

Britain has delivered super-advanced Brimstone missiles:

Their StarStreak air-defense systems are phenomenal. We are not only using it against the Russian helicopters and jet fighters but also, as an anti-ballistic-missile system. Video:

The US has delivered howitzers, helicopters, anti-tank weapons, anti-aircraft weapons, MLRS systems (M142 HIMARS)...:

Polish premier, Mr. Mateusz Morawiecki, confirmed that Poland delivered their tanks to Ukraine. The exact number is unknown. Slovakian and Czech tanks are already on the frontlines! Lithuania has almost "drained out" its resources, nevertheless, they continue to search for other helpful options.

Volunteers from all over Europe and North America are still coming to Ukraine. Here is a picture of Finnish volunteers in Kharkiv:

Technology Transfers, International Committee, IAEA & Russian Orthodox Church

American-made microchips were found in Russia`s modern military radio stations captured in Ukraine. The Ukrainian military got hold of the R-168-5UT-2 radio station. The captured radio station was marked with a holographic sign of the FSS of Russia: "Center for Information Protection and Special Communication of the FSS of Russia."

Russian Orthodox church: "You are a Russian warrior. Your duty is to erase the Ukrainian nation from the face of the Earth."

The Economy

At last, I should share a few words about the economy...

Italian ENI will open an account in Gazprombank. - Bloomberg


The EU grants zero-tariff, zero-quote trade, as confirmed by Mr. Valdis Dombrovskis via Twitter:

Ten European companies have already opened the accounts at Gazprombank. So far, four of them made ruble payments to Russia. Link:

Russia's Gazprom suspends supplies to Poland and Bulgaria:

Federal Chancellor of the Republic of Austria, Mr. Karl Nehammer, debunked the claim of the Russian media, that the Austrian OMV will be making payments in rubles. Mr. Nehammer said: before fake news of Russian propaganda is spread further here. Of course, OMV will continue to pay for gas deliveries from Russia in euros. Austria is sticking to the jointly agreed EU sanctions to the point and comma. (April 27th, 2022)

Austria has also returned its embassy to Kyiv!

German companies will continue to pay for Russian gas in EURs. - The German Ministry of Economy said. Link:

Bulgaria threatens to block Russian gas transit to Serbia and Hungary - The Moscow Times:

Switzerland adopted the 6th pack of sanctions against Russia! The new measures include a coal embargo and are taking effect immediately. - Kyiv Independent

Is that the Ukrainian military forces are getting support all over or they are just so fed up with the Russian military that they become so power too, either way it's war and everyone actually suffers both the Ukrainians and the Russians are all suffering

we have to be careful about the kind of pronouncements one makes before facts are established. War does not do any one any good.

Only disasters and bad things cause this war in this part of the world. But the consequences, from there, put Europe in a state of maximum tension!
