Moscow – used by the Russian military Ukraine war In a new tactic: Big cities like Kyiv are subjected to cruise missiles and bombing from the air. Kamikaze drones attacked But on the front lines, terrorism, which mostly affects civilians, changes little. Nerves are on edge on Russian state television.

Journalist and an excerpt from the show RussiaExpert Julia Davis shared on Twitter on Monday (October 17).

Russia: Politician wants to ban parties over Ukraine war

In the clip, Duma deputy Nikolai Novichkov calls for a ban on New Year’s celebrations. He thinks the party is “harmful”. He didn’t want people to celebrate in Russia either. “Then they will drink less and not show their bad qualities, especially in these difficult times,” the politician adds: “The chaos blooming everywhere, including on television, should have been long ago. Now is a good time to do it.”

Partial mobilization in Russia: “The government is peeing its pants”

Logistical problems in the Russian military create bizarre situations in the country, where conscripts or their families sometimes have to buy essential items for survival — because the military can’t provide them. “What is the cause of the panic?” Duma member Alexander Yushchenko asks on NTW. He complains to Deputy Defense Minister Viktor Korimigin, who says they have enough equipment. “What’s enough? Warm uniforms and boots maybe?” But much more is needed. He complained that the protective clothing for soldiers was of poor quality.

Russian professor Galina Mikhaileva sees it the same way. She finds the words more clear. “We don’t live in the Middle Ages where you had to prepare for war and buy your own chain mail, horse, spear and so on.” And publicist Vladimir Karpov is firm: “The government showed this partial mobilization. It has wet its pants.” He reiterates his point: “The government has wet its suit.” (DVD)
