Putin is preparing a large-scale invasion of Ukraine, but in Kiev, this threat is underestimated: made a loud statement

Russian President Vladimir Putin can organize a large-scale invasion of Ukraine.

British Colonel Glen Grant, who previously worked as an advisor to the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine and author of a resonant article on problems in the Ukrainian Army, told the "Apostrophe".

He added that while the Russian army is not yet ready for the invasion.

"It was said in the Russian press that it would take them three more years to prepare for the west, get enough weapons and train. In other areas, they, for example, build new lines to the old warehouses to be able to pull out all their old armaments. Ukraine underestimates this activity, "Grant said.

The colonel assumes that the invasion may not occur, since Putin is very unpredictable.

"It is possible that they will not attack, that everything they will do will place their weapons around and threaten the country simply by saying" We can break you tomorrow. "This is a set of options that Russia has. has, among other things, missiles not yet available in Ukraine, more aircraft, pilots trained in Syria, and now also soldiers, so the Russians have a number of options to which they can resort. Moreover, Russia is absolutely unpredictable," he said.

The Kremlin has a choice: the author of a crushing article about the UAF called the direction of a possible military invasion of Russia in Ukraine

Russia can carry out a large-scale invasion of Ukraine both from Belarus and the sea through Odesa.

British Colonel Glen Grant, who previously worked as an advisor to the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine and author of a resonant article on problems in the Ukrainian Army, told the "Apostrophe".

"The most reasonable of what they will do is put as many troops on the Donbas, in other words, they will leave them there to attack the entire front, and they will do it, I'm sure, mostly separatists and mercenaries, but the main army is already being used for something I can not predict where and how they will do it, but if you look at the front, you are vulnerable to the north, across the border with Belarus, in the northeast, from the sea in the Odessa region. wants to do something, "he explained.

The grant assumes that the purpose of the invasion may be Kiev.

"You can recall the invasion of Czechoslovakia in Soviet times, and by and large it was only to the capital... Of course, if you lose Kyiv, it will be another game, is not it?" - he said.

Putin "merges" DNR-LNR: the network pointed to important points with the introduction of peacekeepers in the Donbas

Russia is not opposed to a UN peacekeeping mission throughout the territory of the occupied Donbas and intends to abandon the conflict.

This was written by blogger El Myrid.

According to him, the process of coordinating the peacekeeping mission in the Donbas came at the stage of determining the technical details.

"There was a proposal from which, a day after the publication in the Russian press, nobody broke off and did not call hostile curses." The essence of the proposal: there should be 20 thousand peacekeepers, 4 thousand policemen, the mission will be headed by Sweden on the Donbass, from the option of 50 thousand troops refused because Russia may not agree, "said the blogger.

At the same time, he focuses on the number of peacekeepers, which may indicate their placement throughout the Donbas.

"The main thing here is probably the fact that the process goes on to discuss the technical details of the implementation, which brings us closer to the final date of the process that began in early May 2014 when Putin took the course of treason," summed up El Myrid.

As the "Apostrophe" reported, the US spokesman for Ukraine, Kurt Walker, believes that to date, the Russian Federation does not rule out the possibility of deploying a UN peacekeeping mission across the entire Donbass, including the Russian-Ukrainian border.

Russia will hold more powerful cyber-attacks, using new opportunities against Ukraine, - National Intelligence of the USA

Russia will hold more powerful cyber-attacks, using new opportunities against Ukraine, - National Intelligence of the USA



During the next year, Russian intelligence agencies and government agencies can strengthen subversive cybercrime against the US, Western countries, and directly against Ukraine.

Such a forecast was made in a report on Tuesday by Director of National Intelligence Den Coats, reports Censor.NET with reference to Ukrinform.

"We expect that Russia will carry out more powerful and more destructive cyber-attacks over the next year, apparently applying new opportunities against Ukraine," Coates said in a report presented Tuesday at a hearing of the US Senate intelligence committee.

At the same time, according to the National Intelligence Agency of the United States, the Russian government will expand the range of operations already carried out, "in particular, the violation of the operation of power distribution networks, hacking frauds with further disclosure of information, increased network attacks, and provocations under someone else's name."

In addition, the United States expects that Russian intelligence services will continue to test the strength of the vital infrastructure of the United States and allies, and will increase the misunderstandings between the United States, NATO and other partners.

Coats said during a hearing at the Senate Committee, Russia will continue to use elections and other democratic processes in the US and the West as an opportunity to undermine democracy.

"At the very least, we expect Russia to continue to use propaganda, social media, arsonists, sympathetic speakers and other means of influence to try to exacerbate social and political barriers in the United States," said the director of the National Intelligence Agency.

As previously reported, the House of Representatives of the US Congress supported by 404 votes the draft law on cooperation with Ukraine on cybersecurity. This document is aimed at promoting active cooperation between Ukraine and the United States in the field of cybersecurity in the face of Russian hybrid aggression; provides assistance to Ukraine in improving the strategy of cybersecurity, in particular, strengthening the protection of computer networks of state authorities, reducing Ukraine's dependence on Russian information and communication technologies, and promoting Ukraine's participation in information exchange programs.

An-148 near Moscow was crashed because of the crew's mistakes

on Wed Feb 14, 2018 10:45 am
An-148 near Moscow was crashed because of the crew's mistakes



Passenger aircraft An-148 in Moscow region was crashed due to mistakes of the crew during flight preparation and in a freelance situation.

This is on his page in Facebook, said pilot Sergei Nikiforov, reports Tsensor.NET.

"They did not even drop in the corkscrew, they lost their spatial orientation and drove the plane down to their own country." CFIT (Controlled flight into terrain), when a perfectly well-worn airplane is being driven into the ground, signaled the problems with speed readings, but the crew was not oriented or confused... A terrible mistake that cost the lives of 71 people," - wrote Nikiforov.

To this conclusion, he came by examining the report of the IAC Commission on the results of the decoding of "black boxes" from the crash aircraft.

A preliminary analysis of parametric information showed that during the entire flight that ended in an accident, the heating of all three receivers of full pressure (ANT) on the AN-148 was in the off state.

"The special situation began to develop in about 2 minutes 30 seconds after the separation at an altitude of about 1300 meters and the instrument speed of 465-470 km / h, when there were differences in the speed reading from the MVP1 (module of air parameters) (PPT1) left The pilot does not record the velocity value from the MVP2 (PPT2) of the right pilot. Significant differences in the height indication (from the same sources: MVP1 and MVP3) were absent. After ~ 25 seconds, the discrepancies reached ~ 30 km / h (speed from MVP1 was more) and there was a one-time team (point omlennya crew): Vpryborna - compare. Join a single team at this stage lasted about 10 seconds, then stopped.

After about 50 seconds, at an altitude of about 2000 meters, this one-time team was registered again, with this time the speed from the MVP3 was larger and continued to increase, while the speed from the MVP1 continued to decrease.

After the second appearance of the specified one-time command (message), the crew shut off the autopilot. All further flight was in manual mode.

The speed reading from the MVP1 continued to fall and after 34 seconds after the autopilot off, they began to equal 0. In this case, the speed reading from the MVP3 was 540-560 km / h. Within about 50 seconds after the autopilot was disconnected, the flight took place at an altitude of 1700-1900 m with changes in the vertical overload within 1.5 to 0.5 g.

After that, with the preservation of speed values ​​from the MVP1 0 km / h, the speed values ​​from the MVP3 (up to 200 km / h and below) began to fall intensively. Subsequently, the aircraft was transferred to an intensive reduction with pitch angles for dive 30-35 degrees and vertical overload to 0 g.

The collision with the earth occurred about 11:27:05. Before the earthquake, the speed reading from the MVP3 began to increase intensively and, at the time of the collision, was about 800 km / h. The speed reading from the MVP1 continued to be equal to 0. At the time of the collision with the ground, the pitch angle of the dive was about 30 degrees, in 4-5 seconds before the crash in the plane began to develop right bank, which reached 25 degrees", - said in the report of the commission of the Interstate Aviation Committee.

The preliminary analysis of the information received, as well as the analysis of similar cases that have taken place in the past, suggest that the factors of the development of a special situation in the flight could have been incorrect data on the speed of flight on the pilot's indicators, which, in turn, It is said with an icing of the PPD for the off-state of their heating systems, stated in the IAC.

The analysis of the causes of the crash continues.

We remind that the aircraft of the "Saratov Airlines" An-148 crashed on February 11 in the Ramenskoye area of ​​Moscow Region after leaving Domodedovo to Orsk. There were 71 people on board. They all died.
