Russian Liberation Army growing, everything on track, Belgorod ahead – Russia’s armed resistance

Aleksey Baranovsky, representative of the Political Center of the Russian Armed Opposition, says that Russian volunteers continue to liberate Russia from the Putin regime and today, June 1, they entered the Shebekino district, Belgorod region

He said this on Espreso TV. 

“We recently promised that the liberation of Russia would go on, and now in Shebekino, Belgorod region, it continues. Firstly, there was an attempt in the Grayvoron district, and now in Shebekino. Again, we can say that these are only the first steps. However, each time we see that the intensity of the advance is increasing and the number of Russian liberation troops entering the territory of the Russian Federation is increasing. That is, everything is going according to plan, and Belgorod is ahead,” a representative of the Political Center of the Russian Armed Opposition said. 

Aleksey Baranovsky said that after the event in the Grayvoron district, the Free Russia Legion unfortunately had two dead.

“I have no data on the losses of today's operation yet. This time, we also easily crossed the border, where there were already some Russian Armed Forces. A firefight is now underway. The chatbot of the Russian Volunteer Corps and the Free Russia Legion is almost overwhelmed with messages from local residents of the Belgorod region, because people not only want to join the uprising against Putin, but also send important information. For example, about the movement of the Russian Armed Forces and police, which allowed them to cover the entire police station in Shebekino with artillery. We are very grateful to the people for their cooperation and look forward to new messages. Freedom is coming, people feel it and are preparing for it,” Baranovsky said.
