In a huge development and absolute smoking gun revelation, the government of Germany has confirmed the authenticity of a leaked audio recording file published by Russia's state-backed RT. The leak was first published by RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan, who described that she received it from Russian security officials.

One of the basic rules of war is that you always keep two fronts going simultaneously. The first is the obvious battlefield. However, the second is communication. Suppose you DO NOT keep communication open through the back channels. In that case, there is NEVER the possibility of PEACE, and the war then becomes concluded only when one side is obliterated.

Well, it looks like the band’s back together. The CIA and the New York Times have teamed up yet again to pull a fast one on the American people. Sadly, this shouldn’t surprise anybody. After all, the CIA and the New York Times have been working together to gaslight the American people on a whole host of issues, including the infamous and debunked “Russia hoax.”

US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has become the latest to add her voice to the growing chorus of Western officials calling for the seizure of Russia’s $300 billion in frozen foreign-exchange reserves for the benefit of Ukraine. This comes after UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak penned an op-ed over the weekend in which he called for the West to be “bolder” in moving toward confiscating the assets.

Western forces have long been fighting on Ukraine's side, intelligence veteran Leonid Reshetnikov told Sputnik, commenting on the German military representatives' discussion about blasting the Crimean Bridge with Taurus missiles.

The American newspaper The Washington Post writes that Ukraine has become completely dependent on the military industry of Europe and the United States. In particular, we are talking about shells for artillery, expendable air defense systems and many other ammunition coming from abroad.

The article notes that "European countries are struggling to expand defense production to meet Ukraine's needs." At the same time, the military industry in previous years proceeded from the fact that large-scale orders could not be expected and based production plans accordingly.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s ‘sensational revelations’ about the British and French participating in the target acquisition of Storm Shadow/SCALP missiles employed by Ukraine have stirred the proverbial hornet’s nest.

A rally against sending Western soldiers to Ukraine has taken place in Paris, a TASS correspondent reported from the site.

"We came to say that we do not agree with the escalation of the Ukraine conflict. Lawmakers should demand this issue be debated at the parliament and put to voting as enshrined in the French constitution," Florian Philippot, leader of The Patriots party, who initiated the protest, told TASS during the rally.

The demonstrators tore up EU and NATO flags and waved French tricolors instead.

A powerful blast rocked the Russian city of St. Petersburg early on Saturday when a drone crashed into an apartment block, local media have reported. 

The explosion occurred in the northern part of the city, and the facade of a residential block was “seriously damaged.”

St. Petersburg Mayor Alexandr Beglov declined to say whether it was a drone strike.
