Putin’s officers ‘escaping’ war ravaged Kherson in fear of Ukrainan offensive

Posted on

A NEW report claims Putin’s top officers are escaping the war-torn city of Kherson amid fears of a counter-offensive in the region.

Vladimir Putin’s invasion has been undermined in recent days by strategic failures on land and at sea and a Ukrainian counter-move is highly anticipated

In Kherson, the first city to fall in Putin’s brutal war, life has become a living nightmare – with reports of residents electrocuted for displaying Ukrainain flags, a shortage of food & medicine and accounts of people “being taken away in the night”.

But Sky News says it has been told by Ukrainian military sources that Russian commanders in Kherson city have secretly escaped from the area – after Ukraine recently blew up three bridges near the city.

A journalist inside the city, using the name Dmytro, told the publication: “To be honest, if maybe two generals or five colonels left Kherson, it’s not very noticeable. But the ordinary soldiers, the Russian occupiers, have begun to behave very insolently.

“It’s clear that they have absolutely no discipline. This indirectly confirms that the top officers must have escaped. But no one saw it, because it is impossible to see. How they got to the other side [of the Dnipro river] must have been some kind of secret operation.”

Russia has denied the claims, which Sky says it gathered from multiple sources over the course of several months.

Meanwhile, Dmytro has also told how the behaviour of the invading forces has “changed” – perhaps suggesting the recent attacks in Crimea have instilled the fear of a Ukrainian counter-offensive.

“There is a checkpoint at almost every intersection,” the journalist continued.

“All cars and buses are checked. Everyone is asked for their passports. They tear down garage doors and gates. They are looking for weapons, they are looking for some equipment. They are very afraid of partisans.”

  • Germany warns of increasing Russian propaganda

    Germany’s intelligence agency has warned of a growing amount of pro-Russian propaganda in Europe.

    The Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution has claimed that Russia is using Europe’s energy crisis in an attempt to divide democratic nations.

    “Russian propaganda is likely to proliferate within extremist circles and fuel conspiracy narratives with the aim of driving a wedge into our society,” the statement said.

  • Jews fleeing Russia amid fears of persecution

    The BBC has reported that one in eight Jewish people have fled Russia in recent months.

    A staggering 20,500 of Russia’s estimated total of 165,000 have moved to Israel since March.

    According to the BBC, many Jewish people cite historical fears as a key reason for leaving.

  • Russia warns of nuclear ‘provocation’ at Ukrainian plant

    Russia warned on Thursday of the risk of a man-made nuclear disaster at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant and accused Ukraine of planning a “provocation” there on Friday during a visit by U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

    The plant, near front lines, has come under fire repeatedly in recent weeks, with both Ukraine and Russia blaming each other for the shelling.

    The Russian defence ministry accused Ukraine of trying to stage a “minor accident” at the plant in southern Ukraine in order to blame Russia.

    Reuters could not verify Russia’s assertion.

    The Zaporizhzhia nuclear reactor complex, the largest in Europe, was captured by Russian forces soon after tens of thousands of troops entered Ukraine on Feb. 24 in what Russia calls a “special military operation”.

    Russian defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told reporters that Moscow was taking measures to ensure safety at the complex and denied it had deployed heavy weapons in and around the plant.

    The ministry said the plant may be shut down if Ukrainian forces continued shelling it.

  • UN chief to meet with Zelensky and Erdogan today

    UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will meet Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan later on Thursday in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv.

    They will discuss ways to find a political solution to the war and address the threat to global food supplies and risk of a disaster at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, which has been taken over by Russian forces.

    The war has forced millions to flee, killed thousands and deepened a geopolitical rift between the West and Russia, which says the aim of its operation is to demilitarise its neighbour and protect Russian-speaking communities.

    “Russian forces have achieved only minimal advances, and in some cases we have advanced, since last month,” Ukrainian presidential adviser Oleksiy Arestovych said in a video.

    “What we are seeing is a ‘strategic deadlock’.”

  • Two killed as Russia shells Kharkiv – governor

    Two civilians were killed and 18 wounded in a pre-dawn rocket attack on the eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv on Thursday, regional governor Oleh Synehubov said.

    The strike followed a Russian attack on Kharkiv on Wednesday in which Synehubov said seven civilians were killed and 17 wounded.

    “Last night was one of the most tragic of the entire war in the Kharkiv region,” he wrote on the Telegram messaging app.

    He said two people were killed in Thursday’s attack when an apartment building in Kharkiv was struck by Russian forces, and that the 18 wounded included two children.

    Synehubov also said two people were killed on Thursday in a rocket attack on the town of Krasnohrad in the Kharkiv region.

    President Volodymyr Zelenskiy described Wednesday’s attack on Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, as a “devious and cynical strike on civilians with no justification.”

    “We cannot forgive. We will avenge it,” he said.

    Russia denies deliberately targeting civilians in what it calls a “special military operation” in Ukraine.

  • Russia says it may shut down Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant if shelling continues

    Russia’s Defence Ministry said on Thursday that the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine may be shut down if Ukrainian forces continue shelling the facility, something Kyiv has denied doing.

    In a briefing, Igor Kirillov, head of Russia’s radioactive, chemical and biological defence forces, said the plant’s back-up support systems had been damaged as a result of shelling.

    Kirillov said that in the event of an accident at the plant, radioactive material would cover Germany, Poland and Slovakia.

    The Zaporizhzhia plant was seized by Russian forces in March. It remains close to front lines, and has repeatedly come under shelling in recent weeks.

    Russia and Ukraine have continued to blame each other for strikes on the plant

  • Russia says Ukraine preparing ‘provocation’ during U.N. chief’s visit to Ukraine -RIA

    Russia’s Defence Ministry accused Ukraine on Thursday of planning a “provocation” at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant on Aug. 19 during a visit by U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres to Ukraine, Russian state-owned news agency RIA reported.

    The ministry provided no evidence to back up its assertion.

    In a statement, it said there are no Russian heavy weapons at the Russian-controlled nuclear reactor complex, or in nearby districts.

    The plant has come under fire repeatedly in recent weeks, with both Ukraine and Russia blaming each other for the shelling. Ukraine has said that Russia has deployed artillery in and around the plant.

  • Russia says ‘no heavy weapons’ deployed at Ukraine nuclear plant

    Russia’s defence ministry said Thursday that its forces did not have heavy weapons deployed at Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, accusing Kyiv of preparing a “provocation” at the station.

    “Russian troops have no heavy weapons either on the territory of the station or in areas around it. There are only guard units,” the ministry said in a statement.

    Pointing to accusations that Russian forces have been shelling Ukrainian positions from the territory of the station, the ministry said Kyiv was planning a “provocation” during a visit to Ukraine by UN chief Antonio Guterres that would see Moscow “accused of creating a man-made disaster at the plant”.

    It said Ukraine was deploying forces in the area and planned to launch artillery strikes on the plant from the city of Nikopol on Friday, when Guterres is due to visit Odessa.

    “The blame for the consequences (of the strikes) will be placed on the Russian armed forces,” it said.

    Russian forces took control of the Zaporizhzhia plant in southern Ukraine in March, shortly after moving into the country.

    The plant is the largest of its kind in Europe and uncertainty surrounding it has fuelled fears of a nuclear accident to rival the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.

    NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday that it was “urgent” to allow the International Atomic Energy Agency to inspect the plant and for Russian forces to withdraw.

    He said Moscow’s control of the plant “raises the risks of a nuclear accident or incident”.

    The statement reads: “On 16 August 2022, both Russian and Ukrainian officials acknowledged that an ammunition dump had exploded near Dzhankoi in northern Crimea, where a nearby railway and electricity sub-station were also likely damaged.

    “Russian media also reported that smoke was rising from near Gvardeyskoye Airbase in the centre of the Crimea.

    “Dzhankoi and Gvardeyskoye are home to two of the most important Russian military airfields in Crimea. Dzhankoi is also a key road and rail junction that plays an important role in supplying Russia’s operations in southern Ukraine.”

    The MoD goes on to conclude that: “The cause of these incidents and the extent of the damage is not yet clear but Russian commanders will highly likely be increasingly concerned with the apparent deterioration in security across Crimea, which functions as rear base area for the occupation.”
