InformNapalm unraveled the myths about the "power" of the Russian army

InformNapalm unraveled the myths about the "power" of the Russian army

To date, the army of is in poor moral, physical and technical condition.

This is on air "Espresso.TV" said representative of the international intelligence community InformNapalm Mikhail Makaruk.

According to him, contrary to the common myths, in fact, the Armed Forces of Russia are not "super-powerful". For example, Russian military campaigns can be launched in Georgia, Syria and the Donbass.

"Russian air force demonstrated itself in Georgia, the Georgian army, 20 times less, has killed two intercontinental bombers of the Black Jack type, while operators of Georgian installations" Buk "were only training," said Makaruk.

He added that at the same time, the technical backwardness of the Russian army is equally important. This is well traced in Syria. There, the Russian army, which fights on the side of the dictatorial regime of Bashar Assad, uses the bombs of the sixties.

Makaruk believes that in the Donbass, the Russian military suffered several heavy losses: under the Lugansk and Donetsk airports.

At the same time, the representative of InformNapalm draws attention to the unsatisfactory moral condition of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. This is evidenced by the huge amount of non-military losses in the Russian army.

"Over the past year, the" invincible "Russian army did not return home more than 3,000 people alive or healthy, as a result of" grandfathers", discord and corruption among the upper levels of power and officers," summed up the Speaker of the InformNapalm.

Former head of "DPR" "central election committee": Russia abandoned us, return to Ukraine inevitable

Former head of self-styled "central election committee" of unrecognized "Donetsk people's republic" Roman Lyagin has acknowledged that Donbas residents were fooled back in 2014.

He wrote on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

"I am an organizer of the referendum and responsible for the disruption of the Ukrainian election in 2014. I did what I did because I believed in it, heartily and hard-hitting. Because I believed in Russia, which would not let us down. But it did, and threw us under the tanks!" he wrote.

Lyagin said that thousands of people are being killed as animals just for a TV show.

"We have been betrayed and sold! What have we been fighting and dying for?!.. Search for answers on your own. Was it in vain? Yes, Russia that we imagined is no longer there, and maybe it never wasn't. To return to the normal life and restore the work of the enterprises, the return to Ukraine is inevitable. The Donbas is Ukraine!" he wrote.

Lyagin was the one who helped holding "a referendum" of May 11 in 2014 and announced its outcome three ours prior to the end of the vote casting. Some time later Lyagin fell into disfavor of Donetsk terrorist leader Alexander Zakharchenko and left the occupied Donbas.

Former NATO Secretary General Rasmussen criticized Juncker's statement about Ukraine

Former NATO Secretary General, Advisor to President of Ukraine Anders Fogh Rasmussen has severely criticized the statement of Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, about Ukraine's inaction to NATO and the EU.

As Censor.NET informs , Rasmussen wrote about it on Twitter.

"Yesterday's comments by Mr Juncker are alarming: pushing those who are striving for a future in Europe undermines the EU's ability to change neighboring countries," he wrote.

Recall that on August 29 at the conference of EU ambassadors, Juncker reminded that Ukraine is not a member of the European Union and NATO today. "There are 60 wars in the world now, there are no wars in Europe, not taking into account Ukraine that is not in the EU. I see that my friend Poroshenko said a few days ago that Ukraine is a European Union and NATO, but now it is not one and the other I think we should keep this in mind, "said Juncker.

AfD deploys double-headed eagle to snare Russian-German voters

AfD deploys double-headed eagle to snare Russian-German voters

Former Soviet migrants increasingly see populist party as their political home

For André Poggenburg of the populist Alternative for Germany party, the “alleged” Russian annexation of Crimea was a “fiction”. The peninsula’s inhabitants actually seceded from Ukraine after a democratic referendum.

That was the version of events Mr Poggenburg, an AfD leader in eastern Germany, presented at the party’s recent “Russia Congress” in the north-eastern city of Magdeburg. Advertised with images of the Russian double-headed eagle and with German translations of Vladimir Putin’s speeches on sale, the event was a direct play for the Russian-German vote ahead of Germany’s federal election.

The AfD and Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative CDU/CSU bloc are engaged in a fierce fight for the support of former Soviet immigrants in the September 24 poll. Such a contest is unprecedented: the Russian-Germans were once considered the Christian Democrats’ most loyal constituency.

But surveys suggest many are switching their allegiance to the AfD, attracted by its pro-Kremlin stance and hard line on Muslim refugees.

“The CDU/CSU has moved so far to the left that they have simply betrayed their values,” says Albert Breininger, a Russian-German running as an AfD candidate. “The CDU abandoned us and the AfD became our new political home.”

The Russian-Germans are descended from German farmers who colonised the lands around the Volga River in the 18th century and were exiled to Siberia and Kazakhstan by Stalin in 1941. Many drifted back to their ethnic homeland after the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1990s.

Numbering some 2.5m, they form one of Germany’s largest immigrant groups but retain strong family and cultural links to Russia...............................

Russia has thrown a tock-U rocket complex on Ukraine's border with Ukraine - InformNapalm. VIDEO

on Thu Aug 31, 2017 10:14 pm
Russia has thrown a tock-U rocket complex on Ukraine's border with Ukraine - InformNapalm. VIDEO

Volunteers found information about the transfer of several hundreds of Russian military personnel to the Ukrainian-Russian border and around 50 units of equipment, including the Tochka-U missile complexes.

Tsensor.NET informs about it with reference to InformNapalm.




After a detailed analysis of this video, volunteers from the international community InformNapalm found that the train, consisting of 40 platforms and cars, transported 47 units of military equipment and approximately 170-200 persons of personnel. The echelon was filmed on the outskirts of Volgograd and moved in the western direction, to the border with Ukraine. The calculation of equipment and its identification indicate the transfer of the full-fledged two-battalion division of the tactical-missile complex "Tochka-U" with additional ammunition, communications and equipment (field kitchens and autonomous power plants) to the Russian command. The division of the 464th missile crew of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (Kapustin Yar, Znamensk) or the 60th center of combat use (Kapustin Yar, Znamensk ) was recorded with a high probability on the video.) In the echelon, the following technology was identified:

Launchers 9P129 - 4 units:



InformNapalm notes that the lack of information on shooting with the use of TOCH-U on the exercises "West-2017", as well as the transfer of the full division with additional missiles along the border with Ukraine from the place of permanent disposition and the main rocket field, Kapustin Yar, is a very alarming signal for Ukraine.
