Russia and Belarus have not received formal invitations to the 2024 Olympics 

This was reported by the International Olympic Committee.

A year before the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, 203 countries received invitations. The list did not include Russia and Belarus due to the countries’ role in the full-scale aggression against Ukraine. The IOC said that it would later consider the possibility of individual Russian and Belarusian athletes participating in the Paris Olympics in a neutral status.

Soldiers of the 93rd brigade created a unique electronic intelligence complex

This was reported by intelligence soldier Vlad Sord (aka Zmiy), commander of the Seneca special platoon, and Oleksiy Evans, aerial reconnaissance instructor and Thunderbirds staff officer, at a briefing at the Ukraine media centre.

"This complex can cost about 700,000-800,000 hryvnias, but it allows us to conduct reconnaissance at the front 40 kilometres deep and wide. No special knowledge is required to operate it. You just need to have a knack for learning and a desire to kill enemies," said Alex Evans.

He noted that the aim of this development was primarily to save the lives of Ukrainian soldiers and "replace people with technology".
