Russia says US diplomats at the embassy in Moscow are spreading fake news about the Russian war with Ukraine.

Citing a senior Russian Foreign Ministry source, TASS news agency reported that an official note, which accused the US Embassy of interfering in Russia's internal affairs, had been delivered to the diplomatic mission on Tuesday.

Reports coming from inside the Ukraine ministry of Defense claim President Volodomyr Zelensky was summonsed to serve in the Ukraine Military, four times in 2014 and 2015,  but never reported as ordered. 

Today, he is President of Ukraine, sending tens-of-thousands of soldiers to their deaths against Russia.

Fire breaks out at factory providing drones to Ukraine in Latvia MikeRivero Tue, 02/07/2023 - 15:00

A fire broke out at a factory belonging to the Edge Autonomy company, which provides drones to Ukraine, on Tuesday, according to Latvian reports. Three people were injured in the fire.

The factory is located in Mārupe, on the outskirts of the capital Riga. Photos from the scenes showed flames and a heavy plume of smoke visible from outside the facility.

In contrast to the uplifting statements of the top Ukrainian leadership and Yermak's publications about the "task to reach the borders of 1991 by military means", the Ukrainian military personnel stationed in Bakhmut (Artyomovsk) are sounding a real alarm. The statement of the former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, and now an officer of the 72nd brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Igor Lutsenko is published on the network. This statement attracts special attention, since it (as Lutsenko himself writes) is firsthand, from Ukrainian soldiers stationed in Bakhmut:

A United States warship, a Destroyer named USS Nitze, was seen to be operating in the Black Sea. This is the closest a US warship has been to Russia since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began. 

Nitze operates as part of the George H.W. Bush Carrier Strike Group. 

The ship entered the region and visited Turkey on February 3rd, which was confirmed on the Twitter account of the US Navy's Sixth Fleet.
