This morning, October 1, one of the Ukrainian drones attempted to attack the Russian airport in Sochi. The drone was reportedly intercepted by Russian air defenses, possibly using electronic warfare systems. A Ukrainian drone crashed in a deserted area.

The Ministry of Defense of the Czech Republic:
" The Czech Republic will transfer to Ukraine a license for the production of CZ BREN 2 assault rifles."


The development of the production of these firearms at Ukrainian facilities was named among the "flagship" projects of Ukrainian-Czech cooperation, which was discussed at the International Forum of Defense Industries in Kyiv.


Assault rifles of the Česká zbrojovka company will be manufactured in Ukraine under the Sich brand.



In addition, the Czechs will help the Ukrainians to set up an ammunition production line. This project will be implemented by Sellier & Bellot.

Ukraine may receive Bayraktar Akinci and this issue is in the process of investigation, Baykar Makina CEO Haluk Bayraktar said in an interview with Radio Liberty.

According to him, the Ukrainian military is well versed in what the Turkish company produces and invests in. It intends to produce all existing systems in Ukraine.

"We have the necessary permits for this. Therefore, we can fully manufacture the Bayraktar TB2, rather than assemble it.We can also fully manufacture the Bayraktar Akinci here(in Ukraine ).
We have permits from our government for this, which demonstrates how close we are to fruition." , says the CEO.

He emphasized that Ukraine is the first country where this will happen. The fact is that defense cooperation requires government permits.

“And we have this permission. Therefore, the issue of Akinci is under consideration, this is what I can say about this,” Bayraktar summed up.

It was previously reported that Baykar would invest $100 million in Ukraine. Baykar has three main investments in Ukraine. One of them is a drone production plant, the construction of which will be completed in 1.5 years.

At least Western media and NGOs condemned the attacks even when the US/NATO was doing them. You will never see Russian media condemn the barbaric acts of their military.

A Ukrainian soldier made a mistake and helped Russian soldiers in battle. No one is immune from mistakes in the war, one of these mistakes occurred with Ukrainian soldiers. It is reported that in the battles for the height of 215.7 near Kleshcheyevka in the Bakhmut direction, Russian soldiers, circled in a red circle, captured the Ukrainian position. Two soldiers went to help the Ukrainian soldiers, one of them jumped into the trench and died, the second soldier, confused, began to help the Russian soldiers in battle, throwing grenades and shooting at his units. Further on in the video, the second Ukrainian soldier approaches the Russian position, but the Ukrainian soldier shouts at him to lower his weapon. As a result, the Ukrainian soldiers, realizing their mistake, surrender.

Ukrainian soldiers began dismantling cluster shells and making them into ammunition to be dropped from drones. For these purposes, 155-mm M483A1 cluster shells produced by the Turkish company MKE, previously supplied to Ukraine, are taken and cut into several parts.

Leaked U.S. strategy on Ukraine sees corruption as the real threat​



Biden administration officials are far more worried about corruption in Ukraine than they publicly admit, a confidential U.S. strategy document obtained by POLITICO suggests.

The “sensitive but unclassified” version of the long-term U.S. plan lays out numerous steps Washington is taking to help Kyiv root out malfeasance and otherwise reform an array of Ukrainian sectors. It stresses that corruption could cause Western allies to abandon Ukraine’s fight against Russia’s invasion, and that Kyiv cannot put off the anti-graft effort.

“Perceptions of high-level corruption” the confidential version of the document warns, could “undermine the Ukrainian public’s and foreign leaders’ confidence in the war-time government.”

That’s starker than the analysis available in the little-noticed public version of the 22-page document, which the State Department appears to have posted on its website with no fanfare about a month ago.

The confidential version of the “Integrated Country Strategy” is about three times as long and contains many more details about U.S. objectives in Ukraine, from privatizing its banks to helping more schools teach English to encouraging its military to adopt NATO protocols. Many goals are designed to reduce the corruption that bedevils the country.

The quiet release of the strategy, and the fact that the toughest language was left in the confidential version, underscores the messaging challenge facing the Biden team.

The administration wants to press Ukraine to cut graft, not least because U.S. dollars are at stake. But being too loud about the issue could embolden opponents of U.S. aid to Ukraine, many of them Republican lawmakers who are trying to block such assistance. Any perception of weakened American support for Kyiv also could cause more European countries to think twice about their role.

When it comes to the Ukrainians, “there are some honest conversations happening behind the scenes,” a U.S. official familiar with Ukraine policy said. Like others, the person was granted anonymity to discuss a sensitive issue.

Ukrainian graft has long been a concern of U.S. officials all the way up to President Joe Biden. But the topic was deemphasized in the wake of Russia’s February 2022 full-scale invasion, which Biden has called a real-life battle of democracy against autocracy.

For months, Biden aides stuck to brief mentions of corruption. They wanted to show solidarity with Kyiv and avoid giving fuel to a small number of Republican lawmakers critical of U.S. military and economic aid for Ukraine.


More than a year into the full-scale war, U.S. officials are pressing the matter more in public and private. National security adviser Jake Sullivan, for instance, met in early September with a delegation from Ukrainian anti-corruption institutions.
A second U.S. official familiar with the discussions confirmed to POLITICO reports that the Biden administration is talking to Ukrainian leaders about potentially conditioning future economic aid on “reforms to tackle corruption and make Ukraine a more attractive place for private investment.”

Such conditions are not being considered for military aid, the official said.
A spokesperson for Ukraine’s foreign ministry did not respond to requests for comment. But Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has fired several top defense officials in a recent crackdown on alleged graft — a message to the United States and Europe that he’s listening.
The Integrated Country Strategy is a State Department product that draws on contributions from other parts of the U.S. government, including the Defense Department. It includes lists of goals, timelines for achieving them and milestones that U.S. officials would like to see hit. (The State Department produces such strategies for many countries once every few years.)
A State Department official, speaking on behalf of the department, would not say if Washington had shared the longer version of the strategy with the Ukrainian government or whether a classified version exists.
William Taylor, a former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, said many ordinary Ukrainians will likely welcome the strategy because they, too, are tired of the endemic corruption in their country.
It’s all fine “as long as it doesn’t get in the way of the assistance we provide them to win the war,” he said.

The document says that fulfilling American objectives for Ukraine includes making good on U.S. promises of equipment and training to help Ukraine’s armed forces fend off the Kremlin’s attacks.
The confidential version also describes U.S. goals such as helping reform elements of Ukraine’s national security apparatus to allow for “decentralized, risk-tolerant approach to execution of tasks” and reduce “opportunities for corruption.”


Although the NATO military alliance is not close to allowing Ukraine to join, the American strategy often cites a desire to make Ukraine’s military adopt NATO standards.
One hoped-for milestone listed in the confidential version is that Ukraine’s Defense Ministry “establishes a professionalized junior officer and non-commissioned officer corps with NATO standard doctrine and principles.”
Even the format and content of Ukrainian defense documents should “reflect NATO terminology,” a confidential section of the strategy says.
One target includes creating a “national level resistance plan.” That could allude to ordinary Ukrainians fighting back if Russia gains more territory. (The State Department official would not clarify that point.)
The U.S. also wants to see Ukraine produce its own military equipment by establishing a “domestic defense industry capable of supporting core needs” as well as an environment that boosts defense information technology start-ups, according to one of the confidential sections.
U.S. officials appear especially concerned about the role of an elite few in Ukraine’s economy.
“Deoligarchization, particularly of the energy and mining sectors, is a core tenet to building back a better Ukraine,” the public part of the strategy declares. One indicator of success, the confidential version states, is that the Ukrainian government “embraces meaningful reforms decentralizing control of the energy sector.”
The United States appears eager to help Ukrainian institutions build their oversight capacities. The goals listed include everything from helping local governments assess corruption risks to reforms in human resources offices.

As one example, the strategy says the U.S. is helping the Accounting Chamber of Ukraine enhance its auditing and related work in part so it can track direct budget support from the United States.
The strategy describes ways in which the United States is helping Ukraine’s health sector, cyber defenses and organizations that battle disinformation. It calls for supporting Ukrainian anti-monopoly efforts and initiatives to spur increased tax revenue for the country’s coffers.


The confidential portion calls for Ukraine’s financial systems to “increase lending to encourage business expansion” and a reduction in the state’s role in the banking sector.
One envisioned milestone for that section is that “Alfa Bank is transparently returned to private ownership.” That appears to be a reference to an institution now known as Sense Bank, which was previously Russian-owned but nationalized by Ukraine.
The U.S. strategy appears intent on ensuring that Ukraine not only retains its orientation toward the West but that it develops special ties with America.
One way Washington believes that will happen is through the English language. The strategy indicates the United States is offering technical and other aid to Ukraine’s education ministry to improve the teaching of English and that it believes offering English lessons can help reintegrate Ukrainians freed from Russian occupation.
U.S. officials also are helping Ukraine build its capacity to prosecute war crimes in its own judicial system. The desired milestones include the selection of more than 2,000 new judges and clearing up a backlog of over 9,000 judicial misconduct complaints.
The strategy also calls for rebuilding the U.S. diplomatic presence in Ukraine, expanding beyond Kyiv to cities such as Lviv, Odesa, Kharkiv and Dnipro.
Due to earlier staff drawdowns spurred by the full-scale Russian invasion, “the embassy remains in crisis mode,” one of the public sections states. (The State Department official would not discuss the current Embassy staffing numbers.)
As they have in past communications reported on by POLITICO, U.S. officials note inventive ways in which the United States is providing oversight of American aid to Ukraine despite facing limitations due to the war. Those efforts have included using an app called SEALR to help track the aid.

Turns out Nazi lovers are widespread in the continent. 😂 😂

Can't blame them though, who doesn't get goosebumps seeing these. :cool:. Nazi propaganda just screams power and might all over the place.

There's a reason why Azov is so tough, battle-hardened and effective, they have that Nazi spirit inside of them

Leaked U.S. strategy on Ukraine sees corruption as the real threat​







Axios: The Biden administration is scrambling to try to assure U.S. allies that war aid to Ukraine will continue despite the growing number of Republicans in Congress who oppose it. Biden is scheduled to hold a conference call with the leaders of the G7 countries and several other European allies. One European diplomat said Biden's team is telling allies that it's working on an agreement with Congress to allow continued military aid to Ukraine.

----------------------------------------

Whether the Russians win in Ukraine or not will be determined by the USA's financing of Ukraine. If the US stops providing support, then the Russians will have won the war of attrition against NATO.

Americans want this war to drag out for as long as possible, they will invent constant problems and excuses for why it cannot be ended sooner rather then later.

The Americans give me the impression they want this war to go on for another 10 years. It can only go on for that long if they can keep creating their own roadblocks to getting Ukraine the support she needs.

Always remember the way they bullshitted Turkiye as to why they couldnt deal with Assad, all sorts of excuses were made. Then once Turkiye looked like she was going to go in, it was no longer about why the americans cant hit assad, it was about directly threatening Turkiye with war.

If americans wanted to end this war quickly, they could do it with a click of the fingers. They simply dont, the war business dragging out is good for the anglo-american world order.

And dont forget the americans were originally threatening us not to arm Ukraine. They wanted Ukraine to suffer more in the early days so that the likelihood of a war lasting 20 years was more probable.
