Putin Survived Assassination Attempt Two Months Ago: Ukrainian Official

Published

on

Russian President Vladimir Putin survived an assassination attempt approximately two months ago, according to a top Ukrainian military official.

Kyrylo Budanov, the Head of the Chief Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, said in an interview with Ukrainska Pravda that the “unsuccessful attempt” occurred shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24.

“There was an attempt to assassinate Putin… He was even attacked, it is said, by representatives of the Caucasus, not so long ago,” Budanov said. “This is non-public information. [It was an] Absolutely unsuccessful attempt, but it really happened… It was about 2 months ago”

“I repeat, this attempt was unsuccessful. There was no publicity about this event, but it took place,” he added.

As noted by The Telegraph, “The Kremlin has not reported any such incidents in recent months. Mr Budanov did not provide any details and it was unclear if he was referring to Russia’s North Caucasus region where two separatist wars took place in the 1990s, or the South Caucasus which includes Georgia.”

There have also been failed assassination attempts on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. According to his adviser Mikhail Podolyak, Zelensky survived at least a dozen assassination attempts in the first two weeks of the invasion.

Zelensky has gone as far as to compare Russia’s repeated failed assassination attempts to the film “Groundhog Day” during an interview Monday with Axios’ Jonathan Swan.

Zelensky told Swan that anyone would be afraid when they learn about an attempt on their life the first few times, “but when it becomes repetitive, do you remember that film, ‘Groundhog Day’?” Zelensky said, “I wake up in the morning and it’s still the same.”

“When we decided to defend our country, to stand up and to stay in Ukraine … to keep our positions, hold our defense lines … we understood that that was our life from our point on,” he added. “There are many deaths, too many deaths … I am still alive and that’s why it’s me talking to you, it’s not any kind of technology being used.”

    I have not heard that we are dumping time and money in Ukraine for Ukrainian freedom. I believe it’s for Globalist Nazi personal gain.

Iran Launches Missile Into Space As Biden Admin Fails To Negotiate New Nuclear Deal

Published

On Sunday, Iran’s state television announced that the country had launched a solid-fueled rocket into space, drawing criticism from the United States ahead of plans for continued negotiations over the Iranian nuclear deal.

“It’s unclear when or where the rocket was launched, but the announcement came after satellite photos showed preparations at Imam Khomeini Spaceport in Iran’s rural Semnan province, the site of Iran’s frequent failed attempts to put a satellite into orbit,” the Associated Press reported. “Iran had previously acknowledged that it planned more tests for the satellite-carrying rocket, which it first launched in February of last year.”

“Ahmad Hosseini, spokesman for Iran’s Defense Ministry, said Zuljanah, a 25.5 meter-long rocket, was capable of carrying a satellite of 220 kilograms (485 pounds) that would ultimately gather data in low-earth orbit and promote Iran’s space industry. Zuljanah is named for the horse of Imam Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad,” the Associated Press added.

According to the report, the White House is aware of Iran’s announcement and said the move was “unhelpful and destabilizing.”

Iran’s state-run media aired dramatic footage of the missile launch amid heightened tensions over Iran’s nuclear program, which has accelerated as President Biden’s administration has failed to negotiate a new nuclear deal with Iran.

According to a report earlier this year, three Biden administration negotiators working on a renewed nuclear deal with Iran gave up and left the team because they thought that President Biden was being too weak in dealing with Iran during negotiations.

“U.S. officials confirmed over the weekend that Richard Nephew, the deputy special envoy for Iran, has left the team. Mr. Nephew, an architect of previous economic sanctions on Iran, had advocated a tougher posture in the current negotiations, and he hasn’t attended the talks in Vienna since early December,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “Two other members of the team, which is led by State Department veteran Robert Malley, have stepped back from the talks, the people familiar said, because they also wanted a harder negotiating stance.”

Biden Suggests Only Solution To Gas Prices Is Letting Putin Invade Europe

Published

Joe Biden

On Wednesday, President Biden suggested that the only solution to high gas prices is to allow Russian President Vladimir Putin to invade parts of Europe.

“For all those Republicans in Congress criticizing me today for high gas prices in America, are you now saying we were wrong to support Ukraine?” Biden said. “Are you saying we were wrong to stand up to Putin?  Are you saying that we would rather have lower gas prices in America and Putin’s iron fist in Europe?”

“I don’t believe that,” he continued. “Look, I get the easy politics of the attack.  I get that.  But the simple truth is gas prices are up almost $2.00 a gallon because of Vladimir Putin’s ruthless attack on Ukraine, and we wouldn’t let him get away with it.  And we’re doing everything we can to reduce this pain at the pump now.”

However, the increase in gas prices since Russia invaded Ukraine is closer to $1 than it is to $2. On February 24, the day Russia invaded Ukraine, national gas prices were at $3.54 per gallon, and on June 22, the day of Biden’s speech, gas prices were at $4.95 per gallon – which is an increase of $1.41.

Gas prices began rising shortly after Biden took office. From January 20, 2021, to February 24, 2022, gas prices soared from $2.40 per gallon to $3.54 per gallon – an increase of nearly 50 percent.
