Explaining complex things in simple words: Ukraine defense contact group meeting, uprising in the border regions of russia, nullity of putin's election

The Center for Strategic Communication and Information Security pursues efforts to provide a brief explanation to foreign audiences on the current topics of particular interest as regards Ukraine.  


On March 19, Germany hosts the 20th meeting of the Ukraine Defense Contact Group in the Ramstein format.

The West is looking for answers to the risks of the geography of the conflict expanding. The West's strategy is focused on preventing the growth of Russian influence in the world.

Within the framework of Ramstein, a coalition will be created to provide the Armed Forces of Ukraine with long-range artillery. Ukraine can obtain long-range ballistic missiles for HIMARS.

The issue of providing Ukraine with artillery ammunition by EU partners is also being resolved.

In the coming months, the combat use of F-16 aircraft by Ukraine is expected to begin.

Ukraine's technical advantage will allow not only to deter Russian attacks, but also to go on the offensive after a certain time.


The fighting of the Russian resistance forces in the Belgorod and Kursk regions of the Russian Federation has lasted for a week.

The main reason for launching the armed struggle against the Putin regime was the lack of legal opportunities for political struggle in Russia.

Russian volunteer formations have achieved significant success: they control a number of settlements of Russia, destroyed many enemy equipment items, personnel, and captured prisoners.

The Russian authorities have signalled a complete inability to respond to the crisis. It also showed complete indifference to its own local population.

Another red line of the Kremlin has been crossed, and therefore both the West and China, which closely follow the events, have drawn conclusions about a significant increase in the internal vulnerability of Russia.

From now on, the armed Russian opposition is a full-fledged entity in the military-political game on the territory of the Russian Federation and abroad.


The Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation announced that Putin "won the election" with a result of 87.28%.

The so-called "elections in the Russian Federation" are Putin's another special operation that has nothing to do with democracy.

This "result" puts Putin on a par with odious dictatorships and testifies to the psychological complex of the dictator's inferiority.

The analysis of the published data shows large-scale falsifications and fraud. Putin was credited with additional tens of millions of votes.

The main "voters" in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine were the Russian occupation troops. Moreover, the "votes" of the soldiers killed in action were also counted.

The pseudo-elections of the Russian Federation are a strong argument in favour of imposing additional sanctions and enhancing the Kremlin's international isolation.
