  • Sergei Shoigu
    Sergei Shoigu “The U.S. and its allies are trying to prolong the conflict as much as possible. To do this, they have started supplying heavy offensive weapons, openly urging Ukraine to seize our territories. In fact, such steps are dragging NATO countries into the conflict and could lead to an unpredictable level of escalation.” 3 hours ago
  • Oleg Danilov
    Oleg Danilov “Attempts at an offensive in either the Kharkiv or Zaporizhzhia direction will of course be made. How successful they'll be will depend on us.” 3 hours ago

The IPSEs are presented in chronological order based on when the IPSEs have been pronounced.

“We understand that if Russia continues such attacks, we may lose our entire electricity system. Officials in the capital have been told that they would be likely to have at least 12 hours' notice that the grid was on the verge of failure. If it reaches that point, we will start informing people and requesting them to leave. For now at least, the situation is manageable, and there were no indications that large numbers of civilians were fleeing Kyiv. If there's no power, there will be no water and no sewage. That's why currently the government and city administration are taking all possible measures to protect our power supply system.”

“High-precision, long-range missiles fired by the Russian Aerospace Forces on the outskirts of Kyiv destroyed T-72 tanks supplied by Eastern European countries and other armoured vehicles that were in hangars.”

“Russia's war in Ukraine is not going as Moscow had planned. They failed to take Kyiv. They are pulling back from Kharkiv and their major offensive in Donbass has stalled.”

“We assess President Putin is preparing for a prolonged conflict in Ukraine during which he still intends to achieve goals beyond the Donbas. We assess that Putin's strategic goals have probably not changed, suggesting he regards the decision in late March to refocus Russian forces on the Donbas is only a temporary shift to regain the initiative after the Russian military's failure to capture Kyiv.”

“Putin will not admit defeat. The Kremlin will not compromise. Right before May 9 there will be a big moment for Putin to say, mission accomplished, this is my version of history. This is my legacy. It needs to be presented as a mission accomplished. Forget about taking over Kyiv. We've flattened Mariupol, we've liberated more parts of Donbas. Maybe they will announce a republic in Kherson.”

“They began with announcements about taking Kyiv in three days, and now they are explaining that it is impossible to take Donbas within several months. Everything he's [Putin] been trying to build in more than 20 years is falling apart like a house of cards.”

“There will be an offensive ... not only on Mariupol, but also on other places, cities and villages. Luhansk and Donetsk - we will fully liberate in the first place ... and then take Kyiv and all other cities. I assure you: not one step will be taken back.”

“According to our intelligence, Russian units are not withdrawing but repositioning. Russia is trying to regroup, resupply and reinforce its offensive in the Donbas region. At the same time, Russia maintains pressure on Kyiv and other cities. So we can expect additional offensive actions, bringing even more suffering.”

“In order to increase mutual trust and create the necessary conditions for further negotiations and achieving the ultimate goal of agreeing and signing (an) agreement, a decision was made to radically, by a large margin, reduce military activity in the Kyiv and Chernihiv directions.”

“I think it's another way to say regime change in Kyiv has failed. The attempt to encircle and storm Kyiv has failed, and the effort is now focused on the east. Russia originally had a three-pronged military strategy: to encircle and then seize the capital, to capture Ukraine's south, and take the key city of Mariupol. I'm not sure how successful that will be.”

“If Kyiv is captured, the Russians would probably install at least an interim administration. However, given the low likelihood of this being widely accepted among the Ukrainian population, Putin would have more success if the current government, perhaps stripped of some members but continuing to be led by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, was retained in office and able to negotiate with the Russians. The institutional structure would be likely to remain in place, although strong consideration would be likely to be given to introducing a federal arrangement of some sort to provide a degree of autonomy for Donetsk and Luhansk. Nonetheless, even if Russia could establish some form of dialogue and agreement in Kyiv, it faces encumbrances. Such negotiations would be likely seen as taking place under duress, and therefore any outcome may not stick. There are no easy options for Putin, and it would certainly not be easy for any interim government installed by force of Russian arms.”

“We have strengthened the defense of Kyiv. We have gone through the war and due preparation. Therefore, we are ready to meet enemies and not with flowers, but with Stingers, Javelins and NLAW. Welcome to hell!”

“The military presence is aimed at threatening Poland and Lithuania westwards, and Ukraine's north. The message is that Russia is able to conduct an operation that could seize Kyiv. They're stretching our limited resources, preparing for a possible assault and conducting intelligence gathering to see what capabilities we employ and how we react. It sends the clear message that they have the goal, capability and political will to apply military force in Ukraine if the West don't agree to [President Vladimir] Putin's demands.”

“Even if Putin gets something from the west, serious talks or discussions about guarantees - will that be enough for Putin? We are witnessing the dawn of a new geopolitical adventurism from Russia. Putin thinks that if Biden wants, he can move mountains, he can convince allies and convince Kyiv [to make concessions]. This problem could lead Putin to demand the impossible and push the stakes so high that everything ends in war.”

“Kyiv is itself building up its forces, Kyiv is being helped to build up its forces, Kyiv is being supplied with a significant amount of weapons, including modern high-tech weapons. The number of provocations is growing and growing significantly. What's more, these provocations are being carried out with weapons being supplied by NATO countries. And we are observing this with great alarm.”

“We believe that Ukraine's silhouette will give strength to the players because they will fight for all of Ukraine. And all Ukraine, from Sevastopol and Simferopol to Kyiv, from Donetsk and Luhansk to Uzhhorod will support them in every match.”

“I am approaching Kyiv. Several sources close to the presidential administration said that if I do not leave the country, the fake criminal case will continue until my arrest. I hope that with my departure, the zeal of the gendarmes will decrease. My decision was supported by my family and friends, who also received serious information about threats and risks.”
