This is me talking about Russian foreign policy. 5-22-24

These are workplace inappropriate comments about foreign infantrymen.
Holistically it's as though the Kremlin isn't tallying their own losses, even if it's redrawing the map.
What if some of these places in the Balkans want to Americanize?
Notice this mention of fake diplomas found in Bulgaria.

MOSCOW, May 22. /TASS/. The chances of a Ukrainian breakthrough on the battlefield this year are slim, Alexander Litvinenko, secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, conceded.

NEW YORK, May 22. /TASS/. The Ukrainian armed forces need to triple recruitment in order to carry out defensive operations, Foreign Affairs writes. According to the magazine, the Ukrainian army "urgently needs more soldiers."

Vučić spoke up: I am asking the Greek brothers to exercise restraint. There is no going back, Serbia will win Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić spoke from New York and appealed to Greece.

Additionally, a significant quantity of excise goods lacking proper labeling was found at one address, indicating involvement in illicit activities. Nikolov noted that although the individual involved is known for criminal behavior, this is the first instance of search conducted in relation to electoral activities. Aside from vote trading, arrests were made for offenses including possession of narcotics, vehicle theft, and the production of counterfeit documents. Notably, a clandestine operation producing fake diplomas for secondary and higher education was uncovered during the operation.

This is me talking about Russian controlled Ukraine. 5-21-24

Maybe the Russian air force is now illegal in Ukraine. Because of how incompetent their government is in the bordering areas.

BERLIN, May 21. /TASS/. The West has rejected the idea of no-fly zones over Ukraine as it will mean being involved in hostilities, German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said. Earlier, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and government spokesperson Steffen Hebestreit came out with similar statements. "Establishing a no-fly zone over western Ukraine would be akin to participation in war, which is why we are not considering it," Reuters quoted him as saying while visiting Latvia. This way Pistorius commented on the Bundestag discussion about the protection of Ukraine’s airspace. Lawmakers claim that thanks to Western air defense systems deployed along Ukraine’s borders with Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia it would be possible to establish a 70-kilometer safe zone.

This is me talking about the police in Slovakia. 5-21-24

1) A gaff about Putin finding stuff. He looked for something for two hours.
2) These other groups seem questionable. Romanian infantrymen, Uzbek microchips, the Slovakian police.
3) Issues about police uniforms.

DUBAI, May 21. /TASS/. The meeting that Russian President Vladimir Putin convened to help look for the crashed helicopter of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi lasted as long as about two hours, said Iranian Ambassador to Moscow Kazem Jalali.

Juraj Cintula, 71, was arrested at the scene immediately after the Slovakian prime minister was shot in the abdomen last Wednesday. He has not left custody since. A new team set up to investigate the May 15 attack found the Facebook data had been deleted, Mr Šutaj Eštok said on Sunday. “However, it was not deleted by him and apparently not by his wife either,” he said after it was announced Mr Fico was still in a serious condition but his life was no longer in danger. Mr Fico, who founded the leading nationalist Smer party, won elections last year campaigning to end weapons donations to Ukraine. Since returning to power, the populist has scrapped a special prosecutor established to fight corruption. Slovakia’s ruling coalition government said last week that the shooting was “politically motivated” but was the action of a “lone wolf”. Since then, the pro-Russian government has blamed the pro-Western opposition and media for the rare assassination attempt in an EU and Nato member state.

This is me talking about Grant Shapps. 5-20-24

The Grant Shapps report is talking about the Russian economy. Notice these mentions of mercs and nepotism.

Putin’s total mobilisation of his economy is simply not sustainable. And he knows it. If all allies match the UK’s pledge to maintain support to Ukraine for the next 6 years we can exploit this weakness & make it impossible for the Russian economy to maintain its war effort.

These are different conflict zones between the Kremlin and NATO. Niger, Odessa, drone technology, embassies, and Bratislava. Notice the newspapers are calling Slovakia a government black hole. I wonder why the newspapers are calling Slovakia a media black hole?

MOSCOW, May 19. /TASS/. It is time for the Kiev regime to recognize the realities on the ground and for the West to stop sacrificing Ukraine for its futile goals, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

This is me talking about Ebrahim Raisi. 5-19-24

Raisi is from Meshed which is near Afghanistan. Now Putin is sending military personnel to assist him. It speaks to many years of military integration between the Iranians and the Russians. Maybe today that's from Ukraine to the Pacific. Also, in Afghanistan. Comments about right wingers in Moscow.

DUBAI, May 20. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered to send two planes and helicopters with a group of 50 rescuers to aid in the search for Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi’s helicopter, which made a hard landing earlier, Russian Presidential Aide Igor Levitin said during a phone call with First Vice President of Iran Muhammad Mukhbar.

This is me talking about Scottie Scheffler. 5-18-24

This is me talking about Kharkiv. 5-18-24

1) Poland is about to get new drones from Turkey. And so even if the Russians claim Kharkiv region, can't the Poles respond? Kind of the Ukrainian army, but all of those bordering countries' armies.
2) The relationship between government and land registries.
3) Unknowns about land use in Slovakia.

Buffer or ruse?: Russia's new offensive in northeast Ukraine 'not an open road to Kharkiv' At first glance, Russia's military successes appear to "raise two questions”, said David Lewis, a Russia specialist at the University of Exeter. Russia’s sudden advance sparks concerns about the effectiveness of fortifications in the Kharkiv region and about the Ukrainian army’s capacity to organise the defence of the front line.

Russia intercepted more than 100 Ukrainian drones overnight in the south of the country and over annexed Crimea and the Black Sea, Moscow's defence ministry said on Friday.

2) The navy in the northern seas.
3) A strange Russian initiative about prison swaps.
4) OFAC is sanctioning North Korean companies.
5) A Serbian description of Slovakia. A joke somehow that it's a dystopian novel of police because of the borders with neighboring countries and military sites.

Representatives from the Military Prosecutor's Office arrived at the scene and are expected to provide details about the road accident. In the collision, the National Security Service driver sustained minor injuries, while Kiril Petkov was not injured. The causes of the crash are under investigation. The National Security Service claims that their car had the right-of-way and that the deceased driver of the other car failed to yield.

MOSCOW, May 17. /TASS/.

"Judging by what happened, what kind of hatred sowed by many, a storm has arisen today, and we are practically on the threshold of a civil war. Stop this immediately," he said. Just to recall that, according to the latest information, doctors stabilized Fico's condition during the five-hour operation, but it still remains serious.

This is me talking about elections in Serbia. 5-16-24

1) An awkward Russian posture. Air defense systems near Ukraine and police training centers in Latin America.
2) If elections aren't legitimate then other parts of society are corrupted. Demos is a Greek word. Notice Juraj Cintula said he didn't vote for Fico. They start getting out of touch with violent crime even.

MOSCOW, May 15. /TASS/. Russian air defense systems downed several airborne targets, Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said on his Telegram channel, adding that no one was injured.

Ukraine has withdrawn its forces from multiple villages in the northeastern Kharkiv region, where Russian troops are advancing and launching attacks on a village in a fresh offensive along the border, according to reports from Kyiv.

Bulgarian Authorities Probe Chilling Murder Case in Botevgrad Authorities in Botevgrad are currently investigating a grave crime, as reported by Nova TV. The discovery of charred remains has prompted a serious inquiry. The Ministry of the Interior disclosed that a 57-year-old resident of Novachene village, missing for several days, was officially declared as subject to a nationwide search as of yesterday. According to the investigation, the missing individual was last seen in the company of a local resident, with whom he had been involved in a dispute a day prior. This individual has since been detained for up to 72 hours, pending further investigation. Procedural measures are ongoing under the supervision of the Sofia District Prosecutor's Office.

"Let me say this: he [father] did not vote for him [Fico during the election to the parliament]," the man said when asked by the Aktuality news website if his father hated the prime minister. He added that Juraj Cintula had never mentioned any intention to make an attempt on the politician’s life.

White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre expressed anticipation for President Salome Zourabichvili to veto the legislation, although uncertainty remains regarding potential parliamentary actions to override it.

The law on foreign agents was approved with a vote count of 84-30, despite ongoing street protests and warnings from Brussels about its potential impact on Georgia's aspirations for EU membership. European External Action Service spokesman Peter Stano emphasized the concerns raised by EU member states regarding the approval of this law, stating that it could significantly impede Georgia's path toward European integration.
