  • Nuclear plant fears

    Vladimir Putin’s troops have told workers at Europe’s biggest nuclear plant to “take holiday” – sparking fears of a nuke disaster.

    The Zaporizhzhia  plant has been in the hands of Putin‘s forces since the early stages of the Ukraine war, with the world staring down the barrel of another radiation nightmare.

    Ukraine’s Ministry of Defence has said staff have been told to take days off amid fears Putin may unleash a false flag attack.

    They said: “Representatives of the occupational service of the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant continued “short-term holidays” for the Ukrainian personnel.”

    It comes after Russia is believed to have moved military equipment into the station, according to Canadian intelligence.

    Authorities in Ukraine are preparing for a Chernobyl-like disaster at the Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia site as the station lies on a knife-edge.

  • Boris Johnson to urge the world stand firm against Mad Vlad Putin 

    Boris Johnson will “put an NLAW” under the international community urging them to stand firm with Ukraine in a week-long foreign policy blitz.

    The PM will get back to work by taking aim at Mad Vlad Putin with a string of interventions.

    With just two weeks left in No10, Boris wants to cement his legacy as Ukraine’s closest friend.

    He is expected to hold calls with his close pal President Volodymyr Zelensky this week.

    While No10 and the Foreign Office are expected to mark Ukraine Independence Day – the  celebration of the nation’s freedom from the Soviet Union – this Wednesday.

    Foreign Secretary Liz Truss – the overwhelming favourite to replace Boris as PM – is also expected to stamp her mark on the special relationship with an article in a Ukrainian newspaper.

  • Putin’s mystic neo-nazi ‘Rasputin’

    Russia’s invasion of Ukraine may have been inspired by the writings of a deranged Neo-Nazi mystic known as “Putin’s Rasputin” or “Putin’s Brain” who survived a reported assassination attempt.

    Sporting a massive bedraggled beard like his namesake, Russian thinker Aleksandr Dugin long called for an invasion of Ukraine and chillingly believes that Moscow has the right to rule over all of Europe and Asia.

    Dugin last night narrowly dodged a car bomb blast that killed his daughter.

    Dugin and his daughter were guests of honour at the Tradition family festival at the Zakharovo estate and had planned to leave together, according to violinist and pal Peter Lundstrem.

    But Dugin hopped into another vehicle and unknowingly dodged the attempted assassination.

    Minutes later the far-right racist philosopher was pictured holding his head in horror as he stood amid the aftermath of the explosion.

  • Ukraine insist they are not responsible for bombing that killed Alexander Dugin’s daughter

    Ukraine officials have insisted they are not responsible for the bombing.

    Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the President’s Office, said: “Ukraine, of course, has nothing to do with Saturday’s bombing, because we are not a criminal state, and even more so not a terrorist state.”

    Dugin and his daughter were guests of honour at the Tradition family festival at the Zakharovo estate and had planned to leave together, according to violinist and pal Peter Lundstrem.

  • Russian missiles hit Ukraine’s Odesa region

    Artillery shells rained down on a city close to Europe’s biggest nuclear plant overnight and Russian missiles hit targets near Odesa, a Ukrainian Black Sea port and a grain export hub.

    Five Russian Kalibr cruise missiles were fired from the Black Sea at the region overnight, the regional administration spokesperson said, citing information from the southern military command.

    Two were shot down by Ukrainian air defences while three hit agricultural targets, but there were no casualties.

  • Putin’s ‘war mastermind’ Alexander Dugin in hospital after dodging bomb that killed daughter

    Vladimir Putin’s “spiritual guide” is in hospital after narrowly dodging a car bomb attack that killed in daughter.

    It comes as the tyrant’s cronies demand he nuke the West over the reported assassination attempt on Saturday evening.

    Alexander Dugin –  said to be an architect of the Ukraine war – dodged the blast after switching cars at the last moment.

    His daughter, propagandist Darya Dugina, died but evidence suggests Neo-Nazi mystic Dugin was the intended victim.

    He is now in hospital, Putin’s former adviser Sergei Markov has said.

    Markov posted: “Poor Alexander Dugin. He is in the hospital now. Our huge condolences.”

  • Brit troops must prepare to be sent to fight Russia, says top soldier

    A top soldier has warned British troops to prepare for the possibility of being sent to fight Russia.

    Warrant Officer Paul Carney told them to brace their loved ones for “new realities”.

    The Army’s most senior sergeant major said our military is “shaping itself to meet the threat from Russia’’ and “ready to counter any aggression”.

    Warrant Officer Carney wrote in his monthly column in Soldier magazine: “It is important we prepare our loved ones and families who often have the hardest role in our absence.

    “My ask is that you have discussions about a potential deployment with them now. Find contact numbers for support networks and relevant people who can help such as the unit welfare officer and padre.

    “The world has changed and we must be prepared for new realities.” His warning marked six months since the invasion of Ukraine by tyrant Vladimir Putin’s cruel troops.

  • Russia faces huge losses

    According to data from Ukraine‘s military, Putin has suffered huge losses since launching his calamitous invasion on February 24 – with more than 44,000 Russian troops killed and at least 1,800 tanks destroyed.

    This week the UK’s Ministry of Defence pointed at Russia’s “poor performance” in a stinging update.

    British officials said: “It is highly likely that many Russian tank crews lack the training to maintain Explosive Reactive Armour (ERA), leading to either poor fitting of the explosive elements, or it being left off entirely.

    “The war has seen numerous failures by Russian commanders to enforce low-level battle discipline – such as the use of ERA.

    “The cumulative effect of these failures is likely a significant factor behind the poor performance of Russia’s forces.”

  • Zelenskyy: Ukraine will react against every Russian attack

    Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has vowed that he will react to every Russian attack against his nation.

    Al-Jazeera reports that during a video address to Ukraine, Zelenskyy said: “We will not leave any of these [Russian] strikes unanswered. We will establish the identity of every occupier who gives orders and executes these strikes at cities. And we will bring them all to justice in one way or another. No murderer will hide.”

  • German Chancellor Olaf Scholz praises Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny

    German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has complimented Alexei Navalny during the second anniversary of the imprisoned Russian opposition politician’s poisoning.

    “The war that Russia started against Ukraine is a war that also has consequences for Russia,” Scholz stated in an audio on Saturday, reports The Guardian.

    “Freedom and democracy were already endangered before. But now, freedom of expression is much more endangered and many fear to say their own opinion.”

    He claims Navalny was fighting for the principle that “one lives in a democracy and state governed by the rule of law”.

  • Putin: Russia to allow inspectors at Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant

    Vladimir Putin has confirmed UN officials will be allowed permission to visit and inspect the Zaporizhzhia nuclear complex.

    The Kremlin declared the news after a call between Mr Putin and French President Emmanuel Macron, BBC News reports.

    The Kremlin confirmed Mr Putin had agreed to provide UN investigators with “the necessary assistance” to enter the Zaporizhzhia nuclear site.

    The plant has been under Russian control since early March but Ukrainian technicians still manage it under Russian direction.

  • Britain claims Russia has ‘no moral right’ to sit at G20

    The Foreign Office has lambasted Russia after it emerged that Vladimir Putin will attend the G20 summit in November, reports Sky News.

    “Russia has no moral right to sit at the G20 while its aggression in Ukraine persists,” a spokesperson said. 

    “We welcome Indonesia’s efforts to ensure that the impacts of Russia’s war are considered in G20 meetings, as well as indications that Ukraine may be represented by President [Volodymyr] Zelenskyy at the G20 Leaders Summit.”

    Indonesia is set to host the summit and has confirmed that both Mr Putin and Chinese leader Xi Jinping will attend.

  • Russia trying to bypass Western sanctions via Turkey, US claim

    US Deputy Treasury Secretary Wally Adeyemo told Turkey’s Deputy Finance Minister Yunus Elitas that Russian entities and individuals were attempting to use Turkey to bypass Western sanctions imposed over Moscow’s war in Ukraine, the Treasury Department said.

    In a phone call, the two also discussed ongoing efforts to implement and enforce sanctions against Russia, the department said in a statement.

  • Putin’s troops met by Ukrainian resistance

    Putin had been hoping for a swift victory in Ukraine – but his troops have been met by Ukrainian resistance with huge amounts of hardware rendered useless by hero defenders.

    It comes after a Ukrainian official claimed Putin left 20,000 Russian troops stranded in a tactical withdrawal after Kyiv blew up key bridges in the country’s southern city of Kherson.

    The soldiers are believed to be cut off from their battalion and key supply lines following a Ukrainian missile strike in the region.

    But in the face of humiliation, the tyrant unveiled Russia’s deadly military toybox this week as he showed off tanks, missiles and “super soldier” brain tests.

  • Putin’s health ‘sharply deteriorating’

    Vladimir Putin’s health is “sharply deteriorating” and the tyrant will “no longer attend meetings” as his invasion continues to falter, insiders claim.

    Rumours have swirled about the Russian president’s form for months and it has even been alleged he has used body doubles at some events.

    The apparently ailing despot is claimed to the flailing over his war strategy – torn between using nuclear weapons or accepting defeat.

    Amid fresh concerns over Putin‘s health, his security officials have bluntly told the warmongering president that he has run out of “good” options, insiders claim.

    It comes as the death toll among Russia forces spirals – with more than 44,000 Russian troops killed and at least 1,800 tanks destroyed, according to data from Ukraine‘s military.

    The Kremlin had hoped for a swift victory in Ukraine, but almost six months on hero defenders continues to push back.
