07:40. Austria unexpectedly put forward a gas ultimatum to Russia!
The Austrian authorities put forward a gas ultimatum to the Russian Federation. Vienna threatened to take away the storage facilities in Salzburg from Gazprom.
Chancellor of Austria Carl Nehammer said: “If Russian Gazprom does not fill up our largest gas storages (Haidach in Salzburg), then we will take them from him for other suppliers. Austria must prepare for direct intervention where necessary, although I am not in favor of nationalization.”
The underground gas storage Haidach is located in Salzburg on the site of a depleted field. It can hold 2.4 billion cubic meters of gas and is currently owned by Russia’s Gazprom, but is empty.
Earlier, Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer said that Austria cannot yet refuse Russian gas, this will happen, probably in a few years. And Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen called for a rapid reduction in dependence on Russian gas.
Recall that on April 27, Vienna refused to pay Russia in rubles for gas, as demanded in the Kremlin due to sanctions and a ban on supplying euros and dollars to Russia.
07:20. Russia is changing legislation on conscription: hidden graves have begun
Head of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Kirill Budanov said that changes in the legislation on conscription are being considered in the Russian Federation.
“Currently, changes in the legislation on conscription in the Russian Federation are being considered. Firstly, changes are being considered regarding the possibility of conscription not only 2 times a year, but at any time when it is needed, and, secondly, to increase the responsibility for evading military service. People are trying en masse to avoid going to war in Ukraine.
Now Russia is carrying out covert mobilization, and it goes in two ways. The first is the actual mobilization, and the second is the use of reservists. They call it BARS, that is, the country’s combat army reserve, that is, they are essentially reservists who are recruited for short-term contracts to carry out military operations. These facts are absolutely confirmed, we have prisoners who were brought under this system.
Now in Russia there is a significant shortage of military equipment and they will reopen equipment from reservation bases. This technique has been standing there since the 60s, 70s, 80s. It can only conditionally be called military equipment.
According to the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense, attempts are continuing in Russia to carry out the so-called covert mobilization – an active campaign is being carried out, as well as sending graduates and cadets of military schools to the combat zone. Russians of military age have a negative attitude towards the prospect of mobilization.
06:45. The enemy pulls artillery into the Bryansk region for shelling the Chernihiv region
The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine: Russia is deploying additional artillery units to the border areas of the Bryansk region to build up provocative shelling of the border settlements of the Chernihiv region.
05:00. In the Kharkiv region, Russians shot civilians from a tank
First Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Evgeny Enin reported that in the Kharkiv region, the Russian military shot civilians from a tank:
“In one of the villages of the Kharkiv region, the police established the fact that Russian servicemen, think about it, opened fire on civilians from a tank.
Therefore, there is no need to talk about any moral framework for the Russian military. This is the second case that has gone to trial.”
04:20. South: APU inflicted more than 100 strikes on enemy positions in a day
On the defense of the southern borders of Ukraine, the military inflicted more than 100 strikes on enemy positions in a day, destroyed 57 Russian invaders and 60 pieces of Russian equipment.
OK South: In the Kherson region, the invaders realized that they had fallen into a legislative trap with a pseudo-referendum and the inclusion of the region into Russia.
And while collaborators from the fake government are looking for ways to legitimize the illegal, Ukrainian flags appear on the streets of temporarily occupied Kherson as evidence that the population does not perceive the symbols, power, and lifestyle imposed by the enemy.
In Nikolayevshchina, the enemy continued to cook with artillery and rocket-volley fire. By impressing industrial facilities, urban and suburban infrastructure, the enemy, among other things, puts psychological pressure on civilians in settlements, trying to force them into the Russian world instead of fear of shelling.
Rocket and artillery units and aviation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine carried out more than 100 strikes on enemy positions during the day. The total losses were: 57 invaders, 60 armored units and 3 vehicles.
03:30. Vereshchuk: the evacuation of the military from Azovstal will begin with seriously wounded
Vice Prime Minister and Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine Irina Vereshchuk reported that negotiations are underway with the mediation of Turkey on the evacuation of the military from Azovstal:
“We have started a new round of negotiations around the roadmap for the special operation. Let’s start with the seriously injured. There is the Red Cross, they are meeting with the Russians today (May 12). We held talks with them (the ICRC), as well as with the UN, and gave them a mandate.
We want the document to be signed: how exactly the evacuation from Azovstal will take place, we are preparing for signing. Turkey has agreed to act as a mediator in the current round of negotiations. The special operation will have several stages. The first of these is the evacuation of the seriously wounded.
Soldiers of the Azov Battalion, soldiers and officers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the National Police, and border guards are stationed at Azovstal. They all need to be saved. On May 12, representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross met in the Russian Federation to agree on this stage of the special operation to evacuate Azovstal.
Ukrainian fighters holding the defense at Azovstal reported that there were almost 600 wounded soldiers on the territory of the plant, but the number of dead and wounded is increasing every day of shelling.
03:00. In Russia, they said they were ready to open corridors to the territory of foreign states
The Russian Federation announced that they were ready to open corridors for the evacuation of civilians to the territory controlled by the Ukrainian authorities and to foreign states.
The Interdepartmental Coordination Headquarters of the Russian Federation: “The Russian Federation is ready to deploy additional corridors in any other directions as soon as possible and ensure the safe evacuation of civilians both to Russia and to areas controlled by the Kyiv authorities, as well as on the territory of other foreign states.”
At the same time, the invaders claim that they have already deported more than 1.2 million Ukrainians to Russia. The Russian invaders report that they open daily the so-called gum corridors in the Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk and Crimean directions towards Russia.
The Russians also assure that they observe silence regimes on the agreed evacuation routes. At the same time, there is no mention of filtration camps for Ukrainians in the message of the coordinating headquarters of the Russian Federation.”
02:30. Russians were defeated again in Belogorovka: about 70 pieces of equipment were destroyed
Head of the Lugansk OVA Sergey Gaidai reported that on May 12, the Armed Forces of Ukraine once again destroyed the pontoon crossings of Russians across the Seversky Donets, liquidated the personnel and equipment of the enemy:
“Our new Chernobaevka is Belogorovka, where the occupiers are trying to throw pontoon crossings, equipment and personnel. There is a unique situation, they like sheep climb into the same places.
Our Armed Forces of Ukraine break pontoon crossings, equipment and personnel. There are already just dozens of units and armored personnel carriers, and tanks, and trucks lying around. You can already see it with the naked eye.”
Belogorovka is hell for Russians. They managed to destroy about 70 pieces of equipment and eliminate dozens of invaders.
On May 12, the occupiers have been trying all day to break through in Kamyshevakh and Rubizhne, but to no avail. The battles for Voevodovka continue. In addition, in the Lugansk region, the National Guardsmen shot down a Russian Ka-52 helicopter.
