Zum andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine der Sammler am 29. Januar 2023:
• Das britische Intel Update:
In recent weeks, the Russian Ministry of Education has provided more detail on the rollout of the previously announced plan to include basic military training in Russia’s secondary school curriculum.
The module within the ‘Basics of Life Safety’ course will include training with AK series assault rifles and hand grenades, military drill and salutes, and the use of personal protective equipment.
The lessons will become mandatory from 01 September 2023. In addition, in December 2022, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education announced a ‘military training basics’ programme for university students.
The initiatives highlight the increasingly militarised atmosphere in wartime Russia, as well as being a (likely deliberate) evocation of the Soviet Union: similar training was mandatory in schools up to 1993.
Situation update of General Staff of UAF regarding russian invasion as of 6.00 a.m., 29th January 2023

The enemy continues to suffer significant losses. Thus, up to 300 mercenaries of the so-called „wagner group“ private military company were delivered for treatment to the 15th Yuvileyny city hospital (Luhansk oblast). Due to the fact that most of them are carriers of such diseases as HIV/AIDS, syphilis, tuberculosis and pneumonia, local medics refuse to provide mercenaries with medical care.
During the past day, Ukrainian Air Force conducted 4x air strikes on the concentrations of russian troops. Meanwhile, Ukrainian missile and artillery units hit 2x command posts, 2x enemy air defense positions, 6x concentrations of troops, 1x ammunition depot, and 1x radio electronic warfare station.
