17 Ukrainian soldiers were killed, 95 were wounded in 1157 attacks in 20 days of June 2017

This by any other means would be defined as combat and combat in an actual war.....

They were adversaries, but cooperated and fought on occaision, mostly leaving one another alone where possible.

No matter how much Ukrainians use their newfound "information warfare" capabilities, they will not be able to change the fact that the UPA spent most of its time mass-murdering Jewish and Polish civilians in present-day Western Ukraine, while it was under German administration.

To compare the UPA to say the AK or the Yugoslav partisans, would be rather insulting to the latter two groups. There was overlapping membership between the OUN/UPA and collaborationist units, whether S.S., police or other auxiliaries.

However, to claim that Ukraine was more collaborationist than say the French, Belgians, Dutch, Norwegians and Danes, would be inaccurate, given the sheer number that fought as Soviet partisans and in the Red Army. Whereas the Balts, Belarussians, Ukrainians, Romanians and Russians who served with the Wehrmacht could try to claim that they were "justifiably" resisting Stalin's genocidal tyranny, the other nations had no such "excuses".

Postwar, it was heartening to see KGB mass murderers killing UPA mass murderers until the early 1950s. When the East Germans, Hungarians, Czechs, Slovaks, Poles, Romanians, Latvians, Estonians and Lithuanians revolted against the Communists in the late 1980s, there was no "light at the end of the tunnel" in the form of NATO protection or subsidies and job opportunities from Western Europe. The Maidan revolution in 2013-2014 took place in a very, very different context.

War on the invisible front is heating up.....

Car-bomb attack in Kyiv today. Victim confirmed as senior military intelligence officer recently back from frontline
https://www.kyivpost.com/ukraine-pol...ar-blast.html#
Maxim Shapoval, Ukrainian Commander of SOF inside Military Intelligence

Video of attack
https://youtu.be/k66zdnLquco

Seems the Russian news media knew about the blast even faster than Ukrainian sources...how was that possible unless they knew in advance of the bombing....

Interesting that the fastest was the russian LifeNews, the Ukrainian media reported this a bit later as them.
Allegedly 500g of TNT was used

NOTE..might be payback for the total killing of a Russian GRU Spetsnaz team that has not be mentioned much in the last days.

This is an ongoing, widespread and targeted hacking attack coupled with a ransomware attack designed to cripple the entire Ukraine economy and critical infrastructure....

My company is tracking it hard and heavy and providing assistance to Ukrainian companies in recovering.....

Have identified four main servers supporting this attack and they sit deep in Russian...we are attempting to take them off line as of now.....

First two are offline and no longer supporting the attack....

Russian hacking and propaganda thread carrying full details

Some power companies being hit again......

THIRD attack server is now offline and two more are identified this time deeper inside Russia....

What Russia has hit in cyberattack in Ukraine SO FAR:
Government Ministry
Power grid
Banks
Media
Postal
Airport
Cell/internet providers

Cyber attack hit fuel companies.
Two of them, WOG and KLO informed their systems stopped to work, no services

Payments by banking cards aren't accepted

FOURTH Russian attack server is now down...one more identified

This is a true Russian cyber attack now and just now a practice run.....Estonian IT security companies are now in the fray to support Ukraine IT infrastructure ..ransonware is relatively easy to handle ....

Two Polish IT security companies are also mixing into the fray now.....Latvian one as joined in as well...this is developing into an eastern European defensive effort to assist Ukraine...

AND Trump still believes there is no such thing as Russian cyber attacks....he needs to get in his AF1 and come to Ukraine to seen for himself the effects of a Russian cyber attack....

Will not be posting much longer as I and about 14 other IT security companies are in deep support to two major Ukrainian IT companies and it is literally an "all hands on deck event" right now....

This attack is massive in scale and something I have never seen in my lifetime of defending computer networks......

So for those that do not believe there is such as thing as a crippling attack and for those that fluff off the Russian hacking attack on the US election.....

You need to come to Europe and see it first hand....it is real and it is a cyber war right now....

We deny being an aggressor in the Donbass.

BUT WAIT...actual Russian active duty army units invaded eastern Ukraine in 2014......that has been proven beyond a doubt..maybe not in Putins' head but definitely in Europe's head....
