Patriarch Kirill, head of the Russian Orthodox Church, encourages war and promises, as in the time of the Crusades, the forgiveness of all sins for those who die in Ukraine. But Putin's flight from the land does not stop: 800 protesters have been arrested and the borders with Kazakhstan are closed. From September 28, all those who can be enlisted will not be able to leave Russia, while Mikhail Mizintsev, known as the 'Butcher of Mariupol', is the head of the logistics of the Moscow army. Meanwhile, bombs continue to strike in Donetsk and Dnipropetrovsk. And the separatist referendums exceed 50% of turnout, being judged valid by the pro-Russians. Zelensky: 'Find two other mass graves in Izyum'. But Olaf Scholz does not send him tanks: he fears the escalation of the conflict. Finally, NATO prepares a dossier of responses in the event of a nuclear attack in Ukraine. - Photo | video | video 1 | video 2 | video 3

WAR FRONT - The war does not stop. And he makes a new illustrious victim: he is former deputy of the pro-Russian Party of Regions Oleksiy Zhuravko, killed in Kherson occupied by a missile that hit the hotel where he was staying. Moscow attacks in Kramatorsk, Donetsk region, where S-300 missiles damaged homes and damaged hospital. There are no casualties, but the situation in the whole area is particularly dramatic: Kiev forces have made it known that they have repelled attacks on the settlements of Soledar, Vyimka, Kurdiumivka, Zaitseve, Novomykhailivka, Pervomaiske and Pavlivka. A note from the General Staff reads: “The enemy continues to attack civilian infrastructure and civilian residential areas. There is still a threat of air and missile attacks throughout the territory of Ukraine '. But Donetsk is not the only area targeted in the last few hours. Other Kremlin bombs rained in two districts of the Dnipropetrovsk region yesterday evening, as reported on Telegram by Mykola Lukashuk, head of the regional council: 'In the Nikopol district, the enemy bombed Marhanets with artillery and two buildings are been partially damaged. The Myrove community has also come under enemy fire. Two private residential buildings, three farm buildings and three power lines were hit. No victims were reported ”. And two villages were targeted in the Synelnykove district. The Central Electoral Committees of the separatist republics of Donetsk and Lugansk have infinitely, as it was assumed, recognized the referendums for annexation to Russia as valid. In fact, more than 50% of those entitled to vote would have voted. The results will be revealed on September 27, but everyone takes the outcome for granted.

KIRILL'S CALL - After the call of the reservists and the consequent flight of thousands of people from Russia, Patriarch Kirill, head of the Orthodox Church of Moscow, plays the card of plenary indulgence as in the time of the Crusades, explaining in his Sunday sermon that to the dead soldiers in battle in Ukraine all sins will be forgiven: “We are aware that those who die in fulfilling their military duty sacrifice themselves for others. This sacrifice washes away all the sins committed ”. But the religious draft does not take root if what Pavlo Chikov, president of the human rights group Agora, writes on Telegram, according to which the Russian border service is blocking many people on the border with Kazakhstan is true. According to the independent site Meduza, then, from September 28, those who can be recruited will no longer be able to leave the country. And the number of people arrested for protests in Russia against military mobilization has risen to 799 (about 2,000 people arrested and released). But perhaps to show a steady pulse, Vladimir Putin opted for a change in army logistics, replacing General Dmitry Bulgakov, who had also led the operation in Syria, with Colonel Mikhail Mizintsev, known as the 'butcher of Mariupol ”for the terrible siege of the Ukrainian city. Meanwhile, Mychajlo Podolyak, advisor to the Ukrainian president, writes on Twitter: “The forced mass conscription of Tatars in Crimea is a true ethnic genocide and a huge tragedy for the entire nation. Forcing citizens to war in the occupied regions is nothing more than Moscow's attempt to cleanse the territory of an unfair population ”.

TWO DITES COMMON IN IZYUM - Volodymyr Zelensky, in an interview with CBS reveals the discovery of new horrors in Izyum: “They found two other mass graves, large graves with hundreds of people. We are talking about a small town of Izyum. Do you understand? There are two other mass graves in a small town. This is what's happening ”. The Kiev leader hopes that the sanctions will continue and announces that he has received from the United States the Nasams anti-aircraft defense systems envisaged by the latest aid package. Germany, on the other hand, is dissociating itself. And the German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, in an interview with the New York Times, admits that he does not want to send tanks to the rescue of Ukraine: “This is a very dangerous war. We support Ukraine '. However, 'we do it in a way that does not lead to an escalation, to a war between NATO and Russia, because it would be a disaster'. But we are preparing for the worst. Five Western officials anonymously revealed to the Financial Times that NATO would respond with conventional weapons to a possible Russian nuclear attack in Ukraine. The only one to push for a ceasefire remains Pope Francis, who in the Angelus, from Matera, said: 'Mary, Queen of Peace, comfort the Ukrainian people and obtain the willpower for the leaders of nations to immediately find initiatives effective that lead to the end of the war '.
