I want to ask everyone to pay maximum attention to the fact that the Belarusians met us not only as heroes, but also as brothers. They say that the local girls in the shops whisper with lust that the Wagners have arrived.

We are getting ready, we are leveling up and on a new path, to Africa, and, perhaps, we will return to the war at a time when we are sure that we will not be forced to disgrace ourselves.

- Lifetime of atomic bombs of the USSR

I've arranged a mini-study for myself. How long does the country's nuclear arsenal "rust".

You know, plutonium does not deteriorate for 100-150 years. Those. that part of the bomb that makes the first boom - it is quite well stored. Unfortunately. Plutonium oxidizes well (rusts) - but in our case it does not matter.

But in these modern thermonuclear charges, plutonium is only a detonator. And for the bomb to explode properly, it uses tritium. But with tritium, the story is different. It falls apart on its own. Its "service life" is 10-15 years. Then you need to change.

And also lithium deuteride, which actually makes a thermonuclear explosion - it also takes 10-20 years and needs to be changed. Sort of.

And in the bomb there is an explosive that starts a nuclear reaction. There, too, probably the service life is not eternal.

After all, Google told me that the estimate of the service life of Soviet atomic warheads is 10/15 years. Then they need to be disassembled and serviced.with the replacement of many expensive materials. The same tritium is not sold in Leroy Merlin.

And you know. Most of the nuclear arsenal of the Russian Federation was stamped during the Soviet era. 30 years ago. Do you think that Russian affective managers did not steal at all and served as they should? Despite the fact that the first 10 years (from 1991 to 2000) were not at all up to wars. The country was in complete turmoil. And then what came to mind? They are fighting in Ukraine with Soviet equipment. Armata - stalled at the parade. And all these miracle planes and ships that go to ... Tu95 is generally an ancient miracle. It's all from the USSR. And the new one - remember how the space forces plane crashed and there the black box turned out to be made on its knee from the details of the "young electronics engineer" set. There was a lot of noise. Or theft in Roskosmos when the rockets were falling - and then it turned out that they shoved "cheaper" rockets into the rockets. Rogozin then lamented that theft is everywhere.

You can also add that until 2013, all the carriers, all of a sudden, came to serve specialists from YuzhMash of the Dnieper, for they were completely afraid to see their own people near these bombs.

And you know - this knowledge calms me a little.

- Russian schools received a new history textbook, from which half a million potential soldiers will learn why they need to die

- The denunciation of Girkin was dashed off by the former Yaroslavl deputy and Wagnerian Dmitry Petrovsky

“Yes, I filed a complaint against Strelkov with the prosecutor's office four days ago. And yes, I really am an employee of the Wagner PMC, I twice went on a business trip as a surgeon. I consider Strelkov a “military Blinovskaya”: he collects large donations allegedly to help our guys, but does not report on the money spent. The last straw, of course, was Strelkov's words about our President Vladimir Putin. I think that insulting the first person of the state — it is a crime. I can’t say for sure yet whether they detained me after my statement or not, the General Prosecutor’s Office does not report to a simple surgeon. But I hope that it was I who set the matter in motion.

- Two children died as a result of shelling in the Donetsk region

- Peskov urged not to criticize Putin's confidant Isinbayeva, who left for a NATO country

“Of course, the sports community reacts harshly to Isinbayeva's statement. It so happens that, not knowing what was discussed, we simply fall upon the athlete, whom we were proud of just recently. She did not condemn anything, she did not criticize anyone, she fulfills her functions, where she lives, in the end, it does not matter at all. In honor of her, our anthem was played so many times and our flag was hoisted, that this must be remembered and must not be forgotten. Putin's spokesman said.

Earlier, the announcement of her trip to the annexed Crimea in 2019, as well as congratulations to Shoigu on his birthday, disappeared from Isinbayeva’s Instagram page.

In addition, the name of Isinbayeva disappeared from the heading "persons of the party" on the United Russia website.

- The Washington Post. Of the 190 Bradley M2A2 infantry fighting vehicles delivered, about 10 (according to ORYX 15 destroyed) were completely destroyed. According to the soldiers, the biggest advantage is that the Bradleys protect everyone inside, as a rule, the soldiers receive only minor injuries.

The difference between the Soviet and American approaches. For the Soviet thought, the soldiers do not need to be protected - they are free, and you can always recruit more. For Western soldiers, it is necessary to protect, they are taxpayers in the future, their relatives are voters, they have weapons at home, therefore, like it or not, but it is necessary to protect it.

- Tymofiy Rudenko, who was detained 8 times, was charged under a terrorist article. He had previously been tortured. The reason could be anti-war comments.

Rudenko retired from service a few years ago and spoke out against the war in Ukraine on his VKontakte page. In mid-May 2023, a man was detained at the Zhukovsky airport, where the security forces used a stun gun on him and offered to “atone for his homeland” by joining the Wagner PMC.

In addition to administrative protocols on alleged "petty hooliganism" (the man was detained 8 times a year), they also tried to bring Rudenko under an article on the demonstration of Nazi symbols.
