07:30. Source: Putin appointed Patrushev as successor and began transit
Russian insiders report details from the Kremlin that Putin is gradually being promoted to the role of Putin’s successor Nikolai Patrushev:
“Since May 17, all reports for Putin go through the secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Nikolai Patrushev. For the most part, decisions are made personally by Patrushev, and Putin is only informed in his final report.
There is no exception even for the first deputy of the administration Sergei Kiriyenkowho traditionally had direct access to the President, but now reports and receives assignments and recommendations from Patrushev.
Moreover, the Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, removed by Putin from the leadership of the military company Valery Gerasimov after telephone conversations with the Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Mark, Milley reported to Patrushev.
Putin himself since Tuesday (due to illness and the need for surgery) personally held only two phone conversations. At the same time, Putin’s alleged meetings and addresses since May 17 are canned food (pre-recorded videos).
The characters in the Russian government do not really understand who makes the key decisions and is responsible for the situation in the country. The decisions taken by Patrushev will be perceived by people in power ambiguously, and without guarantees of support for these decisions by the president, everything will quickly slide into a political crisis.
Now the regime in the Russian Federation rests solely on the authority of the president, and his guarantees for the elites. Putin’s regime without Putin is a dull, shapeless shit, where neither Patrushev nor anyone else can be the basis and core anymore ”(General of the SVR).

05:30. Russia admits: sanctions have destroyed all Russian logistics
Western sanctions have practically broken all logistics in Russia, said the Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation Vitaly Saveliev:
“Those sanctions that were imposed today on the Russian Federation practically broke all the logistics in the country. And we are forced to look for new logistics corridors.”
Russian authorities are going to solve the problems with the help of the North-South transport corridor, which runs through the Caspian ports of Astrakhan on the Volga, Olya on the Volga-Caspian Canal and Makhachkala on the Caspian Sea.
Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry complained about the Western sanctions, saying that “the promotion of anti-Russian sanctions hysteria will not become a stabilizing factor for the global economy.”
04:00. American analysts: Russians are gathering troops in Zaporozhye and Kherson region
the Russians are probably concentrating forces in certain areas of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions to launch an offensive in the southern direction.
American Institute for the Study of War (ISW): “Russian troops can prepare for an offensive to capture the remainder of the northern Kherson region and advance towards Zaporozhye.”
According to the regional state administration of the Kherson region, replenishment of the personnel and equipment of the Russians arrived in Vysokopolye and Arkhangelsk, and an increase in the activity of hostilities is expected in the near future.
The Institute noted a high concentration of Russian troops in Inzhenerny, south of Gulyai-Polye, which may indicate that Russian troops are potentially preparing to continue the offensive in the direction of Gulyai-Polye.
ISW also writes that the fact that banners for the 220th anniversary of the creation of the Taurida province appeared in the occupied Melitopol may indicate the intention of the Russians to turn the occupied territories in the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions into a quasi-republic like the so-called LDNR.
02:40. Ukrainian aviation destroyed 2 Russian Solntsepeka
On Saturday, strike aviation of the Air Force eliminated more than a dozen pieces of military equipment of the invaders, including two heavy flamethrower systems of the Solntsepek type.
Speaker of the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yuri Ignat: “On May 21, the strike aircraft of the Air Force once again successfully worked out. At least 12 pieces of military equipment of the occupiers were destroyed, including two heavy flamethrower systems of the Solntsepek type.
Rashists once again attacked the territory of Ukraine from the Black Sea with Caliber cruise missiles. Two missiles were intercepted and destroyed in the sky by Air Force fighters and one more unit of anti-aircraft missile troops – Vinnitsa region.
In addition, according to Ignat, an Orlan-10 UAV was shot down by an air defense unit of the Ground Forces in the eastern direction.
01:00. Evening address of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky
Zelensky: “I signed a decree on rewarding our heroes. 215 servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been awarded state awards. Of these, 30 are posthumous. Almost every day I have such or other similar decrees on my desk. About rewarding our defenders and defenders. On conferring the title Hero of Ukraine. And this reflects the severity of the military situation. The war, unfortunately, continues. The war is not over. We still have to fight and go forward to victory.
Perhaps it seems to some in some cities in the rear that the war can be forgotten. And – to become carefree. Or even carelessly. But no, it’s not. Every day Ukrainians die for our independence. Every day! And each and every one of us must take care every day to help the defense. Help the army. With what they can. Yes, how can they.
