Who was the lieutenant colonel whom Putin distinguished as a “Hero of Russia”? – Gift

Published

on

The 52-year-old lieutenant colonel was born in Ukraine and joined the Russian army after the annexation of Crimea in 2014. The officer was known for his cruelty towards Ukrainians.

She is listed as one of the founders of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), one of the self-proclaimed regions of Ukraine, which Russia recognized as independent and which was later used as a pretext to defend territory to invade Ukraine.

The Korsa was killed earlier this week after a Ukrainian missile hit a car it was driving on a highway between the towns of Gorlovka and Yasinovataya, Gorlovka Mayor Ivan Prikhodko said.

Kachura was the first high-ranking female officer in the Russian army. According to The Telegraph, his modus operandi was to disguise himself as a Ukrainian military man in order to commit war crimes indiscriminately and discredit the Ukrainian army.

Kachura studied ballistic missile programming and served with the police in Donetsk, where he is from. In 2014, when Russian-backed fighters took over regions in eastern Ukraine, Olga joined the military battalion of Igor Bezler, a prominent Russian military leader.

In January 2022, a court in Western Ukraine found Kachura guilty of belonging to a terrorist organization and sentenced her in absentia to 12 years in prison with confiscation of property.

Hailed as a heroine in eastern Ukraine, President Vladimir Putin on Thursday signed a decree conferring on her the title of Hero of Russia, the country’s highest military award, awarded posthumously “for courage and heroism in the performance of military duty.”

Olga Kachura’s death comes at a time when Vladimir Putin’s forces are suffering a series of setbacks. The Ukrainian armed forces continue to attack Russian military positions such as logistics bases and ammunition depots, putting pressure on the Kremlin.

In a video posted on social media, Sanna Marin dances and sings with a group of friends. As a result, opposition party leaders are demanding that the 36-year-old government official undergo a drug test, and argue that such an attitude is not appropriate for a government official.

Suitcases containing the remains of two children sold at auction in New Zealand

Published

on

New Zealand police said the remains of two children were found in suitcases bought at an auction in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city.

Inspector Tofilau Faamanuia Waaelua said that the bodies of the victims, aged between five and ten years, were probably hidden for several years in two suitcases of the same size.

“The nature of the discovery makes the investigation challenging, especially given the time that has elapsed between death and discovery,” Waaelua said.

The family found the bags after purchasing a trailer full of items sold in bulk from a warehouse, with an official stating that the family in question was unrelated to the death but “understandably distraught at the find.”

Police, who also called Interpol, are searching the trailer for other household items and personal items to identify the victims.

The warehouse and property where the bags were found were thoroughly inspected by a forensic team.

“We are doing our best to identify the victims” in order to bring to justice the perpetrator or perpetrators of the deaths of these children, Waaelua said.

It is the northernmost permanently inhabited region on the entire globe. And this is also Achilles’ heel of NATO in the Arcticwhat did you once call it Professor of Security Studies.

Formally, Svalbard is under the sovereignty of Norway, but thanks to a century-old treaty, many other countries have the right to exploit its natural resources. In particular, Russia, which has been mining in the region for years, often employs Ukrainian workers, mostly from the Donbass.
