Two ‘Death Squads’ Fail Attempted Assassinations of Ukraine President Zelenskyy

Last week in a televised address Zelenskyy said he believed Russian forces “designated” him as their “Number 1 target.” It appears as though he was correct.

Reportedly a team of elite Chechen commandos sent into Ukraine to “hunt down and assassinate President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was ‘eliminated’ by security forces, a top Kyiv defense official told national media” as reported by Fox News.

A translation of Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council Oleksiy Danilov talking to Ukraine 24 TV channel indicates that defense forces countered two “death squads “sent after Zelenskyy Tuesday.

He said Ukrainian forces got intelligence about a planned attack on Zelenskyy and destroyed an elite Chechen unit. “The special operation that was to be carried out directly by the Kadyrovites to eliminate our president is fully known to us today, and I can say that we received information from representatives of the FSB, who today have no desire to take part in this bloody war,” he said.

Fox News reports:

 Ramzan Kadyrov is the leader of the Chechen Republic, which is a semiautonomous part of Russia. He is an ally of Vladimir Putin, and his commandos are considered fierce, highly skilled fighters. The FSB is in reference to Russia’s Federal Security Service. 

Fox News Digital reported Monday that Putin’s move to send Chechen fighters to join the invasion may have backfired as the Ukrainian military outperformed Russian expectations.

The Chechens are part of a Russian national guard unit and are well known for fighting insurgencies, using brutal tactics that even jolted Russia during its two brutal wars in the ’90s against them. The Chechens have been employed to hunt down terrorists in Syria and used by Russia to fight elsewhere, including in Georgia. They also fought the Ukrainians in Donbas when hostilities began there in 2014.

    The patriotism and bravery of the Ukrainian people is something to behold. They love their country and are willing to fight for it at all cost. They put the left-wing, crybaby cowardly liberals, the feckless clown senile little girl fondling Joe Biden and the ignorant, incompetent Commie-la toes-up Harris,AOC and her America hating squad, and all the Democrats to shame. They would all hide crying under their desk and surrender if that happened here.

    Collect their bodies, stuff their mouths with Pork and sew them shut. Then send them back to Chechnya in pig skin bags. Thats all they understand.

    I am not convinced about these “attempts”. Russia has nothing to gain in the Ukraines Presidents assassination, but much to lose in world opinion.
    These are crazy times. Stories fly like bullets in the air on all sides.
    Keep a sense of reality in these days as to what is true or false. Reagan said “trust, but verify”…let’s verify first.

    They should send a hit squad to Russia, then all of this would end

    Looks to me that MSM is at their “hype” stories once again. OK MSM, where is the proof, who is the source, where and when the TWO failed attempts take place? Yep, MSM is still the enemy of the people.

U.S. Commerce Department: Chinese firms are supplying Russian entities

On Tuesday, the United States Commerce Department said several companies in China are supplying Russia’s military. The announcement was made alongside a “new round of blacklist restrictions for foreign firms aiding Moscow’s war against Ukraine” reports National Review.

“These entities have previously supplied items to Russian entities of concern before February 24, 2022 and continue to contract to supply Russian entity listed and sanctioned parties after Russia’s further invasion of Ukraine,” stated an official Commerce Department notice posted to the Federal Register.

“Commerce also blacklisted several Chinese companies and Chinese government research institutes for their work on naval-technology and supplying Iran with U.S. tech in a way that harms America’s national security” adds National Review.

Six companies that are helping further the Russian invasion are also based in Lithuania, Russia, the U.K., Uzbekistan, and Vietnam.

National Review reports:

The Commerce Department stopped short of blaming the Chinese government for the sanctions-evasion activity it identified today. Commerce secretary Gina Raimondo previously said that there doesn’t appear to be any “systemic efforts by China to go around our export controls.” The Biden administration has publicly and privately warned Beijing against supporting the Russian war, with White House officials even leaking to the press about an effort to present China’s ambassador in Washington with information about Russian troop movements ahead of the invasion.

While Beijing has not expressed outright support for the invasion, it has used its propaganda networks to back Moscow’s narrative. Meanwhile, top Chinese and Russian officials have moved to solidify the “no-limits” partnership they declared in early February. General secretary Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin held a call this month, marking the construction of a new bridge between their two countries, during which they reiterated their support for the burgeoning geopolitical alignment.

National-security adviser Jake Sullivan said last month that the U.S. has no indications that Beijing has provided Russia with military equipment. A Finnish think tank, the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air, estimated on June 12 that Chinese imports of Russian oil since the outset of the conflict have amounted to $13 billion, making China the biggest consumer of the country’s oil exports. Previously, it was Germany. “While Germany cut back on purchases since the start of the war, China’s oil and gas imports from Russia rose in February and remained at a roughly constant level since,” the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission noted.

Official advisor Anton Gerashchenko tweeted incredible video of Ukrainian soldiers sweeping through fields, writing “this is how our fields are de-mined so that farmers can harvest crops.”  On Monday a Russian missile struck a mall in Kremenchuk, Ukraine, where over 1,000 civilians were inside.

“Almost two dozen people were still missing Tuesday one day after a Russian airstrike struck a Ukrainian shopping mall and killed 18 civilians inside…On top of the 18 dead and 21 people missing, Ukrainian Interior Minster Denis Monastyrsky said 59 were injured. Several of the dead were burned beyond recognition” reported the New York Post.
