There are a lot of their corpses here, one tried to escape in a woman’s dress (AUDIO)

Prigozhin answered Zelensky about the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Bakhmut: ‘There are a lot of their corpses here, one tried to escape in a woman’s dress’ (AUDIO). Yevgeny Prigozhin, the military guru of PMC Wagner, responded to Ukrainian President Zelensky’s statement that Artyomovsk (Bakhmut) had not been taken, and that the Ukrainian military was still present in some areas of the city.

The party is over for Zelensky as supporters turn lukewarm on Ukraine

Supporters of Ukraine are no longer hoping for a victory, French publicist Jacques Guillemain writes in the Hungarian daily Magyar Nemzet: It has become clear that, apart from the mainstream media’s pro-Kiev propaganda, there is no one left who has any reasonable hope for success in the Ukrainian offensive.

What salary should a soldier receive in a war-torn country? Obviously, there is no number that can make up for the sacrifice Ukrainians make on the frontline. But a proper salary is still necessary. When Russia invaded last year, Volodymyr Zelensky increased the payment for the military to seven times of the average salary in Ukraine. ‘We will pay 100,000 hryvnias (£2,200) monthly to military personnel who hold weapons… so that they know that the country is grateful to them. And so it will be until this war ends,’ Zelensky said. The war, as it has turned out, is well into its second year – and the Ukrainian President is faced with the costs.

Mikhail Podolyak, an adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, said that if Western countries stop supplying weapons to Kyiv, the number of terrorist attacks will increase in Europe, the hosts of the Redacted podcast noted. As the journalists noted, such words essentially pose a threat to the EU, and besides, they resemble the pro-Saddam rhetoric used by the US authorities to justify the war in Iraq.

Ukraine is in its death throes

MICHAEL WALSH SPECIAL REPORT: Whatever one’s political stance it is unpleasant to watch the death throes of a person or a nation. It is a time for somber reflection. I suspect that the post-mortem on Ukraine’s demise is already at the typesetters. Ukraine is in its death throes. The question arises, what if anything will rise from the ashes of a nation that before Washington’s coup in February 2014 was a stable and benign democracy?
