4 Russia — Ukraine
The American newspaper Politico reported that «Russia is massively deploying troops and equipment along the border with Ukraine.» As evidence of its claim, the Politico published several satellite images that allegedly show «Russian tanks on the border with Ukraine». According to the Politico, the satellite images were taken above the city of Yelnya, in the Smolensk region, which does not border Ukraine. That exact Russian region borders only Belarus, and it is separated from Ukraine by the neighboring region of Bryansk. The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine denied that information while stating that the build-up of the Russian troops near the Ukrainian border has not been recorded. Ukraine and the Western countries often accuse Moscow of such acts of aggression and concentration of forces near the borders of Ukraine.
The «Afghan National Resistance Front» prepares to resume the fight against the Taliban — the TASS reported while citing the militia spokesman, Kabir Wasik, former Deputy Governor of Panjshir.

He noted that Russia is capable of resisting the Taliban, and supporting the Afghan militia. Kabir Wasik added that the leader of the Panjshir resistance, Ahmad Masud, is currently in Tajikistan. «He sometimes visits Afghanistan, where he meets with the resistance groups in various regions’’ — end of quote.
«The Turkish artillery shells areas in north of Syria every day» — a member of the political committee of the Syrian Kurdish Party of the Democratic Unity, Habat Mohammad, told to the RIA NEWS. Civilians fear the shelling, carried out ahead of a new military operation, that will force people to flee their homes, as it was the case with the capture of Afrin in March of 2018. In recent days, the Syrian news agency «The SANA» reported, while citing their sources, about an increase of numbers of military convoys that are heading to the Syrian Idlib and to the north of Aleppo and Hasakah provinces. The SANA reported that the Turkish army is sending weapons, ammo, armored vehicles, and artillery pieces. Constantine Reztsov, specially for the ANNA NEWS
