Ukrainians ‘Eliminate’ Elite Chechen Assassination Squad

Not so elite now, are you?

Published

The Russian invasion of neighboring Ukraine has seen battles range within every facet of modern warfare.  Propaganda is flying into the digital realm, brave Ukrainians are fighting in the streets, cyber attacks continue to inundate major institutions, and there are even reports of Russian “saboteurs” hiding among the Ukrainians for weeks ahead of the invasion.

But perhaps one of the most dastardly plots hatched by the Russians came from the clandestine corners of warfare, as an elite Chechen hit squad was sent to assassinate Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

When it was all said and done, however, the Chechens appeared to be a little less than “elite”.

Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council Oleksiy Danilov reportedly told the Ukraine 24 TV channel that defense forces countered two death squads sent after Zelenskyy Tuesday, according to a translation of his remarks.

He said Ukrainian forces got intelligence about a planned attack on Zelenskyy and destroyed an elite Chechen unit.

“The special operation that was to be carried out directly by the Kadyrovites to eliminate our president is fully known to us today, and I can say that we received information from representatives of the FSB, who today have no desire to take part in this bloody war,” he said.

The Chechen fighting forces have long been a part of Vladimir Putin’s European offensives, and had previously been one of the more feared battalions on the planet.

Empire State Goes Tyrannical with Social Media Spying Plan

This is NOT okay.

Published

on

There are plenty of ways in which American politicians can react to a tragedy, with a great many of those options being a bit shortsighted.

This is especially true of Democrats, it seems, as their innate progressivism makes them uniquely obsessed with change for the sake of change – even when those changes may be constitutionally questionable.

The latest example of this comes to us from New York, where a racist massacre at a grocery store has the state government looking to spy on citizens’ social media accounts.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) on Wednesday announced plans to create a police unit designed to, in part, combat “hate speech” in the wake of the tragic shooting in Buffalo, promising to “confront this epidemic head-on.”

“We’re proposing a comprehensive plan to combat domestic terrorism, strengthen state gun laws, & investigate social media platforms promoting violent extremism,” Hochul announced Wednesday.

“In wake of the racist act of terror in Buffalo, New York will lead the charge to confront this epidemic head-on”.

The devil was in the (lack of) details:

One of the governor’s executive orders instructs the State Police to establish a “dedicated unit within the New York State Intelligence Center (NYSIC) to track domestic extremism and increase social media monitoring at the Intelligence Center.”

“The unit will be responsible for developing investigative leads based on social media analyses focused on radical extremist activities motivated threats by identifying online locations and activities that facilitate radicalization and promote violent extremism,” it reads in part.

Without any clear or concise guard rails, those employed within the unit would be left to examine any number of questionable pieces of alleged “evidence”, tagging and cataloging completely harmless users in the sort of overreach that would have George Orwell not only rolling over in his grave, but kicking at the lid of his coffin as well.
