Russia is once again speculating on the downing of the Russian IL-76 near Belgorod, while Ukraine is demanding a transparent international investigation and access to the crash site.
According to Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, russia now has special units that interfere in the elections of every European country using artificial intelligence, which significantly strengthens its disinformation campaigns.
The Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine believes that for a long time Europeans have ignored the threats posed by russia.
According to the NSDC Secretary, Russian agents distribute more than 166 million posts on social media every week as part of a disinformation campaign against Ukraine, of which more than 36 million are aimed at discrediting officials.
According to Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, Ukraine's airspace will remain closed until security guarantees are provided.
President Zelenskyy is conducting an audit of Ukraine's army institutions and reserves to assess weaknesses and ensure that all military personnel are serving at the front.
According to Ukrainian intelligence, russia has developed plans to disrupt the supply of Western weapons to Ukraine, but it will be extremely difficult for them to implement such plans.
Russian occupants are checking all men at checkpoints at the entrance to Luhansk and plan to close the trauma center in Dovzhansk, said the head of the Luhansk regional military administration.
The Russian pilot Maxim Kuzminov, who brought the stolen Mi-8 helicopter to Ukraine, may have lived in the Spanish district of La Cala (Villajoyosa) for only a few weeks, according to interviews with locals and business representatives who did not recognize him.
The Ukrainian parliament will tentatively consider amendments to the draft law on mobilization in the second reading on March 6.
Commenting on whether Putin and Trump, or someone else who will be the president of the United States, can decide the fate of Ukraine behind Kyiv's back, Danilov said it does not work that way.
The NSDC Secretary noted that the draft law on mobilization in Ukraine should clearly define the duties and rights of citizens and be adopted "for the life of our country. "
Danilov said that Russia lacks the resources to launch a new offensive against Kyiv after Ukraine has weakened Russian troops over the two years of war.
Ukrainian defenders have repelled more than 30 Russian attacks around Avdiivka, while fierce fighting continues in the city and surrounding areas.
Russia plans to destabilize Ukraine internally after its own March elections by spreading disinformation on the Internet, the National Security and Defense Council Secretary said.
The Russians suffered the largest loss of personnel in a week - about 5,000 troops - while trying to retake Avdiivka from Ukrainian forces.
The military are hiding from constant enemy shelling in the basements of the Koksokhim plant in besieged Avdiivka, where the ceiling is collapsing due to regular shelling, and medics are stabilizing the wounded.
The NSDC Secretary noted that the situation in Avdiivka is very difficult, and their main task is to save the lives of Ukrainian soldiers, as the Russians have turned the settlement into almost ruins due to constant shelling.
The russians used the technology of deepfake to create a fake video in which Ukrainian servicemen called for the overthrow of the constitutional order, which was refuted by the Ukrainian Center for Countering Disinformation as propaganda.
Ukraine believes that the 65 servicemen declared dead by Russia in the Il-76 plane crash are still prisoners of war.
Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov criticized Putin's interview with an American journalist, saying that the Russian president is a war criminal who should testify to the investigator, not give interviews.
Ukrainian companies receive almost all government orders for the production of drones to support the country's armed forces.
The NSDC Secretary is confident that the experience of former Commander-in-Chief Valeriy Zaluzhnyi will be used to achieve Ukraine's victory over russia.
According to the NSDC Secretary, there were no Ukrainian prisoners on board the downed Russian plane.
NSDC Secretary Oleksiy Danilov said that rumors about Valeriy Zaluzhnyi's resignation as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are dangerous without legal documents confirming this decision.
The Ukrainian parliament will consider a new draft law on mobilization in the first reading on February 7.
The Anti-Corruption Committee has recognized the new draft law on mobilization as containing corruption risks, as key provisions are unclear and leave too much power to officials.
The Center for Countering Disinformation has denied reports of the resignation of Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, calling the information spread in telegram channels fake.
President Zelenskyy chaired a meeting of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief's Staff to discuss the production of drones, the production of shells, the situation on the frontline, particularly in Avdiivka, the construction of fortifications, and the restoration of energy infrastructure after Russian strikes.
Additional funds of UAH 720 billion can be raised from Ukraine's domestic resources to cover the needs of military mobilisation, as funds from international partners cannot be spent on the needs of the Armed Forces. Currently, no decision has been made on the number of mobilised or the source of funding has not yet been decided.
