Secret Santa transferred UAH 100 million for a New Year's fireworks display for the enemy

An unknown benefactor transferred UAH 100 million to the Come Back Alive Foundation for a New Year's fireworks display for the invading Russian forces.

"The collection for the "New Year's Salute" for the Russian invaders is almost closed! The Ukrainian community and responsible business have taken a good pace to close this collection as soon as possible. And when almost 54% of the amount was accumulated, someone made a huge contribution to the initiative's account: + 100,000,000 UAH! Just imagine this figure: plus UAH 100 million in a moment! And how can you not believe in a miracle after that?" the foundation reports.

Lithuania repairs Leopard tanks damaged on the battlefield

Lithuania has repaired and is ready to hand over to Ukraine Leopard tanks that were damaged on the battlefield.

“The first Leopard 2 tanks repaired in Lithuania are gearing up for their journey to Ukraine!” the message says. 

On Friday, the repaired tanks, which will soon return to the battlefield in Ukraine, were demonstrated at the Lithuanian Army's training ground in Gaižiūnai (Jonava district).

"Lithuania has consistently supported Ukraine's struggle for independence and not only sends military support, but also helps to repair Leopard tanks, which are extremely necessary on the battlefield. Today we can see how the repaired and revitalized powerful tank looks like, which will soon be returned to Ukraine," Delfi quoted Lithuanian Defense Minister Arvydas Anušauskas as saying.

In Melitopol, guerrillas blew up a train that was delivering fuel and ammunition to the occupying Russian forces

On December 15, in Melitopol, the resistance movement successfully sabotaged and blew up a railway train that was transporting ammunition and fuel from Crimea to Melitopol and Dniprorudne on a daily basis. This was reported by the National Resistance Center.

On the way back, this train was transporting ore, grain and damaged equipment from the temporarily occupied territories. However, thanks to the heroes of the underground, the train finally completed its journey.

The controlled explosion damaged the railroad and a diesel locomotive with cars. The explosion itself occurred at 8 a.m. right under the noses of Russian FSB officers. Currently, the invading forces have cordoned off the explosion site and are searching the surrounding area. 

The occupation administration is trying to conceal the fact of sabotage, while the Russians are unsuccessfully searching for guerrillas. Federal Reserve employees, traitors from the police, dog handlers and even experts from a criminal laboratory are involved. 

According to the National Resistance Center, this is the eleventh successful railroad sabotage in 2023. The Resistance Movement successfully blew up the previous train on October 13.

Explosions were heard in Kursk for almost an hour

On December 15, in the evening, explosions were heard in the Russian city of Kursk for almost an hour, reports Military Courier.

"The Russians started publishing videos showing the sounds of explosions. An hour earlier, residents of Kursk began posting on local social media about loud noises. A series of explosions sounded over the city for more than an hour," the message says. 

Later, the Russian Defense Ministry reported the alleged downing of six drones over the territory of the Kursk region.
