Russian Foreign Ministry: Ukrainian military continue to hunt for Russian journalists

Yesterday, REN TV journalists Dmitry Vakhnitsky and Fyodor Boldarev came under fire from the Ukrainian military and were blocked in Shirokino. According to the channel, the staff "managed to get out of the car, which was shot at, and take refuge in one of the houses."

The representative of the Foreign Ministry called these actions of the security forces inadmissible. “Fire is firing, with aimed fire, for media representatives. This is a gross violation of the relevant international obligations of Ukraine, not the first, it is a series of unlawful actions that directly threaten the safety of Russian journalists, ”Dolgov said.

According to him, there should be an adequate response from the OSCE to such incidents.

“Such actions need not only to be condemned, but we must strongly urge the Ukrainian authorities to conduct at least one investigation of these incidents. Nothing has been done so far, including the murder of Russian journalists. No one was convicted, no one was punished, ”the diplomat said.

According to him, “OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Miyatovych should specifically urge the Ukrainian authorities to put an end to such actions, as well as the creation of unacceptable unlawful obstacles for the activities of Russian media in Ukraine in general.”

        When, in 1945, Americans and Russians began organizing excursions to the concentration camps for the Germans, poking their faces into the local "attractions", forcibly showing the chronicle in cinemas, the Germans were shocked. Many were crying. Some fainted. But when the "true" correct Ukrainians are shown footage of Odessa residents burnt alive, the torn bodies of women and children of Donbass, they do not faint. They scoff. They yell: “That's okay! Glory to Ukraine! Glory to the heroes! ... ”The Germans were horrified by the atrocities of their compatriots, they only amuse the" true "correct Ukrainians.

          The new aerobatic team of the Russian Air Force "Wings of Taurida" at the base airfield in the Voronezh Region is completing preparations for the Victory Parade. From April 1, training will continue in the Moscow region. The group was created in the spring of 2014 and named after the annexation of Crimea to Russia. "Tavrida" flies on the latest combat training aircraft Yak-130, piloting in parade formation - it is more difficult than combat - Voronezh pilots are taught by aces from the "Swifts" group. The pilots will show the figures "Cuban diamond" and "balalaika" over Red Square.
          From morning till night, the rumble and whistle of jet engines stands over the Borisoglebsk airfield. Training is intensive: four flight shifts per week, each for eight hours. Pilots practice aerobatics in a variety of conditions: alone, as a couple, as a group, as a leader, as a follower, in clear weather and in the clouds.
          - It is not known what weather will be over Moscow on 9 in May. You may have to break through the clouds in the group. In order not to lose each other and not waste time collecting the system, we are working out now, - the pilots explained.

          Before group flights, "pedestrian aerobatics" takes place: taking model airplanes in their hands, the pilots walk along a special area, divided into sectors and lined with routes, depicting how they will actually fly.

          - There are many cases: in addition to flight shifts, there are theoretical studies, another job, Sunday remains for the family. But flying is great! They studied for five years only for this, ”smiled Senior Lieutenant Alexander Kozochkin.

            The best instructors of the Borisoglebsk airbase were selected for "Wings of Taurida", who teach cadets to fly here. In the aerobatic team, the instructors themselves turned into students, and the back, teaching chairs of the Yak-130 were taken by the Swift pilots.

            - Strong guys, they succeed in everything. They absorb new knowledge like a sponge. I think that in the near future they will act as an aerobatic team, - said the Swift pilot Dmitry Ryzhevatov. The Swifts themselves, together with the Russian Knights, will show a "Cuban diamond" figure in the skies over Moscow: a rhombus made up of five Su-27s and four MiG-29s. The figure has nothing to do with Cuba, but is named after the airfield where the aerobatic teams are based, Kubinka.

            The six Yak-130 will pass over the Red Square in an isosceles triangle, while the distance between the aircraft will not exceed three meters. The figure has no official name, among themselves the pilots call it "Borisoglebsk balalaika". The group will be led by the deputy commander of the airbase Denis Kokhanovsky.

            - The task of the leader is to create comfortable conditions for the flight of the followers and to reach the target at a given time. At the moment, the target is Red Square. "Swifts" help a lot, without them nothing would have happened at all. We will work here for another week, on April 1 we will fly to the airfield near Moscow. There will be 10 trainings over Alabino, two rehearsals over Red Square - one of them is general - and the 13th flight at the parade itself, - said the pilot.

              The "ceremonial" planes are no different from the combat ones: the same dark gray with red stars. Engines of other Yaks, not participating in the parade, are driven nearby. An engineer from the Irkut plant is squatting under one - the clearance of the landing gear flap turned out to be one and a half millimeters larger than it should be. Senior engineer of the airbase Roman Sadykov is not overjoyed at the onboard electronics of the Yak-130:

              - On previous types, an aircraft-testing technician had to open dozens of hatches, climb inside with a manometer and a ruler, measure everything manually. It is especially inconvenient in the winter when warm clothes impede access. And here it is enough to press the pre-flight control button and the aircraft itself will report on the status of all systems. Much easier and faster, flight preparation time was halved.

              In the XIX century, the horse guards arena was located on the site of the airfield, and the training audiences of the air base served as cavalry barracks. Borisoglebsk flight school was founded in 1922, one of its first graduates was Valery Chkalov. Chkalov Flight School, which had grown out of school, graduated from the current Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air Force Viktor Bondarev. In recent history, the school has become an air base where cadets practice. And Borisoglebsk has been a city of aviators for almost 100 years: in every second family, someone serves or works at an air base. Everyone will watch the 9 air parade on May.

              - I’m sure everyone will watch: parents, relatives, spouse, both sons, said Denis Kokhanovsky. - Senior 17, also going to become a pilot.

      So are we going to "resolutely condemn" and "call"?
      Or it’s time to remember that Russia is a great power capable of protecting its citizens anywhere in the world ...
      or are these just words?

      That's who you talk with in these words, condemn, call, investigate, the same thing as talking to a baboon sitting on a tree, he will understand you very much. Besides destroying, there is no other option and never will be.

      Guys journalists are selfless, fearless people, their personal contribution to the coverage of events in Ukraine can hardly be overestimated, and I am talking not only about military operations: those young girls who are in Kiev, in fact, are also at risk, because from this evil spirits that have settled in Kiev and their armed battalions do not know human laws. Many thanks to all the journalists who give us truthful information from the scene and the opportunity to shout on the Internet that others do not understand something well and what needs to be done this or that way. It is thanks to these "soldiers of truth" that you are not drugged by propaganda, you have the opportunity to comprehend and choose how the inhabitants of Europe, who, with great efforts, can piece together a mosaic of truth and the horror in which our compatriots work with you.

    Until the Ukrainians "overwhelm" some Western bigwig from the OSCE, the OSCE itself will not "scratch" to conduct any investigations. So all the appeals of our Foreign Ministry to the OSCE are an empty concussion.

    In general, it’s time to condemn Savchenko, but probably there is not enough evidence, they are waiting. As for the shelling of Mariupol punishers, it is necessary to recoup, having previously announced an ultimatum. Cover the whole gang and open a guerrilla offensive inside the city. To clear Donetsk city of this scum.
