Kiev: “Suicide if Minsk enters the war”

If Belarus, yielding to pressure from Moscow, were to decide to go to war against Ukraine, this would result in “suicide”. This is the warning launched by Andriy Yusov, spokesman for the intelligence of Kiev, according to which the information that Moscow and Minsk disseminate on the participation of Belarus in military operations in Ukraine “pursue several objectives at the same time … on the one hand, to sow panic among the population, among Ukrainians, including residents of border areas and regions. And disorient the Ukrainian Defense Forces, scatter forces, transfer forces from other directions.” According to Yusov, quoted by Ukrinform, “the objectives of this special psychological operation are Belarus itself and the Belarusians, i.e. escalation”. This does not mean, continued the intelligence spokesman, that “there is no threat from the Lukashenko regime. Lukashenko helps Putin with weapons, ammunition and armored vehicles, provides his airspace for attacks on Ukraine, but today we cannot say that in the near future there will be a full-scale invasion and the involvement of Belarus in an operation of land”.

Kiev, 40% of the population without electricity

This was announced by the head of the regional military administration of Kiev, Oleksiy Kuleba, adding that 278 “points of invincibility” have been deployed in the Kiev region, shelters equipped with light, heat and the internet. UNIAN brings it back. “The most difficult situation arose at the Fastiv Power Plant, Kyiv-Svyatoshinsky and Vasylkiv territorial communities. Work there continued throughout the weekend. People also stayed at night to provide electricity to homes,” he said.

Peskov: “I have not seen the letter from the mothers against the war”

Putin’s spokesman Dmitri Peskov said he had not seen the open letter and online petition posted by a group of mothers of Russian soldiers and the “Feminist Resistance Against War” movement calling for the withdrawal of Moscow’s troops from the Ukraine. When journalists asked him to comment on the letter, Peskov replied: “No, you know, unfortunately I haven’t seen it, so I can’t comment.” This was reported by the Interfax agency.

Kiev: “Over 50,000 women at the front”

There are over 50,000 Ukrainian women at the front in the war against Russia. “I am proud that a third of our army is made up of strong and courageous women – said the deputy chairwoman of the Parliament of Kie, Olena Kondratyuk, during her speech at the 6th Congress of Ukrainian women – More than 50 thousand Ukrainian women in the ranks of Armed forces of Ukraine are fighting today for peace and security across Europe”. Kondratyuk said that this reality is one of the highest indicators among all militaries of NATO countries: “This means that women can build, develop, teach, have successful careers, raise children and, if necessary, protect their families and their state”. “It is a new reality”, said the vice president of Parliament, according to which these “new opportunities” for women not only “should be recognized”, but “they should not even be underestimated”.

Kiev: “Over 700 infrastructures damaged by the Russians”

Some 32,000 civilian targets and more than 700 critical infrastructure have been damaged by Russian attacks on Ukrainian territory since the start of the invasion, Ukraine’s first deputy internal affairs minister Yevhen Yenin said on Wednesday, as Ukrinform said. In addition, according to Yenin, about 520 settlements have electricity problems due to Russian attacks. The damaged civilian targets are mainly single-family houses and apartment buildings, Yenin explained, noting that only 3% of Russian attacks were launched on military structures. In addition, Russian forces have caused damage to more than 700 critical infrastructure, particularly in the fields of transportation, energy and other targets such as airbases, bridges, fuel depots and electrical substations. “Difficult times await us,” Yenin said, but the Ukrainian government and most Ukrainian citizens are “ready for similar attacks.”

Kiev: “30 missiles on Kherson in 24 hours, one dead”

In 24 hours the Russians struck the Kherson region 30 times, causing one death and two injuries. “Over the past 24 hours, as a result of Russian shelling, 1 person was killed and 2 more residents of the Kherson region were injured,” said the head of the Kherson region Yaroslav Yanushevich.

Kremlin: “The Vatican is in favor of mediation, but Kiev is not”

The Kremlin “welcomes” the Vatican’s offer of mediation, but it is Ukraine that is not in favor. This was stated by Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov. “We know – said Peskov, quoted by the Interfax agency, answering a question about the Vatican’s offer of mediation – that a certain number of statesmen and foreign countries declare themselves ready to provide their help and, of course, we welcome this political will. But in the situation that we now have de facto and de jure from Ukraine, such interventions cannot be required.

Gb: “Kherson still vulnerable, stay within reach of the Russians”

Kherson is still vulnerable because the city remains within Russian artillery range. British intelligence writes this in its daily report on Twitter about the recently liberated Ukrainian city. “The city is vulnerable – explains London’s Defense Ministry – because it remains within range of most of the Russian artillery systems, which are now firing from the eastern bank of the Dnipro River, from behind the recently strengthened defensive lines. A significant portion of the damage done to the city was likely caused by Russia’s use of BM-21 Grad-type missile systems. The British Army points out that Kherson continues to be bombarded daily by Russian artillery: 10 people died in the city on 24 November alone. After the liberation, on November 21, the Minister for the Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories, Iryna Vereshchuk, called on the inhabitants to evacuate the city for the winter. According to the authorities, 15 people died in Kherson from November 20 to 25 as a result of Russian shelling.

Mayor of Kiev: “Possible partial evacuation”

The Kiev authorities “have not ruled out the worst scenario” due to Russian attacks on the country’s infrastructure and are considering the possibility of a partial evacuation of the capital if the interruptions to water and electricity supplies continue. “I don’t rule out the worst case scenario. There will not be a total evacuation, perhaps a partial one, but it would not be defined as such. It would be a temporary relocation of some groups to the suburbs and other places where services are available,” Mayor Vitaly Klitschko said in an interview with RBK-Ukraine. Klitschko then urged residents to “consider different scenarios and be ready”, given that – “according to information from the army, the enemy plans insidious attacks against the infrastructure to intimidate the Ukrainians by imposing dark and cold on them”. “It would be a mistake if we didn’t prepare for different scenarios. If a year ago, at this time, someone had talked about what was going to happen in the future, the killings, the war, the violations and the genocide, he would not have been described as a sane person. Today it is about the terrible and harsh reality”. Klitschko then asked the population to stock up on drinking water, food, winter clothes, telephones and computers.
