War criminal, terrorist, and former “DPR” leader Igor Girkin (Strelkov), Donetsk collaborator Pavel Gubarev, propagandist Maxim Kalashnikov, and others have announced the creation of the so-called Angry Patriot Club, in a video posted on Brighteon platform on April 1.

In it, Girkin stressed that Russia was headed for a military defeat.

"Unfortunately, the situation at the front, which the media is varnishing in every possible way, has an extremely negative impact on the situation throughout the country," he said.“I'm not afraid to say it, we are heading for a military defeat.”

Girkin also added that neither the Russian economy, nor its army, nor its political and military leadership were ready for a war against Ukraine.

"We got into a long, protracted war, for which our economy was not ready," Girkin argued.

“Neither the army, nor the political system was ready for it.”

Girkin is currently on the international wanted list in the case of the downing of Malaysian Boeing flight MH17 in the skies over Donbas back in2014. He was sentenced to life imprisonment.
