The 65th week of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine has ended. “Delovye Vedomosti” tells about the main events.
On May 22, groups of armed people, as well as light armored vehicles, from the territory of Ukraine penetrated the border areas of the Belgorod region of the Russian Federation. The fighting between the border guards and the detachments that entered the territory of Russia took place in the area of the Kozinka border crossing, border villages and the city of Grayvoron. According to Russian authorities, 12 civilians were injured in the raid. Another woman died on the bus “during evacuation measures.” The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported on the killing of more than 70 “Ukrainian terrorists”, without reporting, however, on their own losses, as well as the losses of the FSB troops guarding the border.

Responsibility for the raid was claimed by the Russian Volunteer Corps and the Legion “Freedom of Russia” – units within the Armed Forces of Ukraine, consisting of citizens of the Russian Federation. The Ukrainian authorities said that they were “studying the situation, but they were not directly related to it.” And only “opposition-minded citizens of Russia who are ready for an armed struggle against Putin’s criminal regime” are involved in the raid. RFC fighters, who gave a press conference shortly after the raid in the Sumy region of Ukraine, near the Russian border, said they lost two fighters during the raid. They also demonstrated an armored personnel carrier seized from the FSB. It should be noted that on May 20 and 21, the Russian media also published separate reports about attempts to infiltrate the territory of the Russian Federation by armed groups from Ukraine.
On May 25 in Minsk, Minister of Defense of Belarus Viktor Khrenin and Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Sergei Shoigu issued documents for the deployment of Russian nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus. Shoigu stressed that the Russian non-strategic nuclear weapons deployed on the territory of the republic would remain under the control of the Russian Federation.

The White House announced the previous aid package on May 21. According to US President Joseph Biden, it includes additional ammunition, artillery and armored vehicles. In addition, this week the head of the Pentagon, Lloyd Austin, announced that the allies had already transferred military assistance to Ukraine totaling $65 billion as part of the next Ramstein.
