Ukraine: Russian robots blown up in transit

today at 01.06 Johan Edgar

The Ukrainian Defense Ministry claims that Russian robots have been destroyed on the occupied Crimean peninsula.

According to the ministry, an explosion occurred near the city of Dzhankoy when the Kalibr robots were being transported by rail, presumably on their way to be loaded onto Russian warships.

Kalibr is a family of robots with variants that are used against naval targets or as cruise robots, where the latter, according to the think tank CSIS, can reach up to 2,500 kilometers. (TT)

    “In implementing this legislation, my administration will declassify and share as much of that information as possible.”

    The WHO has previously appealed for access to US intelligence.

  • Macron’s government passed a vote of no confidence

    It was on the hair. But France’s government narrowly passed the first of two no-confidence votes on Monday night.

    278 votes of no confidence, but 287 votes are needed to bring down the government.

    The vote was held after Emmanuel Macron’s government pushed through an increase in the retirement age from 62 to 64.

    That there are two votes is due to the fact that both the far-right party National Gathering and the left-wing alliance Nupes demanded a vote of no confidence in the government.

  • Problems with travel service after suspected hacker attack

    Due to technical disturbances at Västtrafik, on Monday there were problems with booking, among other things, travel services and medical trips.

    The problems mainly apply in Fyrbodal and the Gothenburg region.

    – We try to solve all trips as much as possible, but appeal to everyone who does not have to travel to wait to book their trip, says Åds Björk, communications strategist at Västtrafik.

    The problems are expected to persist during Tuesday.

  • Pilots are shut down after sloppy coffee break

    Two pilots of the Indian low-cost airline SpiceJet have been suspended after an irresponsible coffee break at an altitude of 11,000 meters, writes Times of India.

    The pilots celebrated Holi by eating fried pastries and drinking coffee in the cockpit.

    They then chose to place their coffee cups without lids right by the control levers – something that could have serious consequences for the safety of the plane if the drink were spilled.

    A picture of the coffee break was also posted on social media. It quickly went viral and has caused an outcry, not least among people in the airline industry.

    Both pilots are now suspended pending an investigation.

  • Woman fell from flatbed

    The police are currently on the scene to gather information and form an opinion as to whether it is a workplace accident.

    They write that on their website.

  • Why is one of the two men who murdered Ulf mentioned with a picture and name and not the other??? After all, both were sentenced as a return.


    Hello! The man whose name and picture we published is sentenced to life imprisonment for murder.

    Life-sentenced murderers are often named, because the public interest in those cases often outweighs possible publicity damage.

    The other man, whose name and picture we have not published, was convicted of aggravated robbery.

    But all cases are different. And name publication is decided on a case-by-case basis.

  • Hello, why has interest in the Ukraine war cooled so much in the Swedish press and news reporting? In foreign reporting, there are lots of analyzes and status reports!

    Otjonsson Otjonsson

    It may feel cold compared to how it was in the first months at the outbreak of the war, when a very large part of the news reporting was devoted to the Ukraine war.

    But I would say we are still reporting intensively. Among other things, we have a team in place now that reports on many fatalities. Feel free to follow our collective reporting here!

  • Hello. What was the big police operation in Stockholm city about yesterday? Nothing more has been written about it.
