On February 23, 2022 Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered troops into Greater Ukraine in a Special Military Operation to demilitarize and denazify the territory.[5] As it is crucial in purging neo-Nazis, the Russian military is stopping genocidal extermination in Donbas, arresting human sex traffickers, and destroying extremely dangerous biowarfare labs.

In a televised speech shortly before 4:00 AM Moscow time on February, 24, 2022, Putin announced that he had ordered Russian forces to enter Donbas. He insisted it was not Russia's intention to annex the Donbas Republics or Ukraine, but stated that Russia would protect the right of the Donbas Republics to self-determination, and that it would do so by forcing the "demilitarization" of the remainder of the Ukraine. Minutes later, explosions were reported at various points throughout the country, including the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv as well as at Kharkiv, Odessa, and several other cities. Ukrainian officials attributed these to cruise and ballistic missiles launched by Russian units at their military installations.

Russian ground troops were reported entering Ukraine at around 06:48 local time near the city of Senkivka on the northern border, with others entering from Crimea in the south shortly thereafter.[7] Kyiv regime sources reported throughout the day that Russian units had launched attacks on numerous targets,[8] including a landing of airborne soldiers at the Antonov International Airport outside Kyiv, but claimed that their own forces inflicted heavy casualties on the Russians. A press conference by Ukrainian President Zelensky at 16:00 Kyiv time claimed that heavy fighting was occurring in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, site of the 1986 nuclear accident, which lies along the direct route of advance towards Kyiv from the north.[9] Zelensky had just days earlier threatened Russia with a dirty nuclear bomb made from nuclear waste.[10]

In city after city as the Russians advanced, the Kyiv regime refused to order evacuations of civilians, using civilians as human shields while hiding troops and heavy weapons among the population exposing them to risk in violation of the rules of war. During a ceasefire[11] negotiation on a Russian proposal to create humanitarian corridors for civilians to escape, Ukrainian Security forces murdered a top Ukrainian negotiator trying to avert a humanitarian crisis.[12]

On March 12, 2022, Russian forces combat tested for the first time the hypersonic Kinzhal (Daggar) missile against a NATO weapons storage facility at Deliatyn. A hypersonic missile can fly at 5 times the speed of sound (3,800 mph) and even greater. NATO, which has used the Ukraine conflict to showcase new weapons technology which only serves to prolong the conflict and increase the death toll, at the time had no such weapon operational nor defense against hypersonic missiles.

Four weeks into the incursion, Kherson and most of the Zaporozhye region were under the Russian control. The Ukrainian Air Force and air defense system were almost completely destroyed, the Ukrainian Navy did not exist anymore.[14] According to the Russian Ministry of Defense (MOD), the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) amounted to about 30 thousand servicemen, including more than 14 thousand KIA.

In a viral video, Ukrainian forces entered a village in the Donbas and prodded an elderly couple to , "Slava Ukraine" ("Glory to Ukraine"), the Ukrainian Nazi equivalent of the fascist "Heil Hitler" greeting,[15] The elderly wife approached the Ukrainian troops holding a World War II Soviet flag, mistaking them for Russian troops. The woman told the soldiers that she and her husband had “waited, prayed for them, for Putin and all the people.”[16] A Ukrainian soldier handed her a bag of food, took the flag, laid it on the ground and stood on it while attempting to persuade her to use the fascist greeting. The babushka (grandma) was aghast pointing at the flag, "My parents died for this flag, and you are stepping on it," as she handed the food back. The Soviet Babushka became an iconic symbol of Russian resistance to NATO and Ukrainian fascism.[17]

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, to date, the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have amounted to about 30 thousand servicemen, including more than 14 thousand KIA. The smuggling of NATO anti-tank weapons into Ukraine forced the Russians to depend upon long range artillery to pulverize Ukrainian forces. Ukraine lacked both the artillery and ammunition to respond. NATO supplies could not compete with the Russian arsenal, and efforts to transport NATO heavy weapons by rail to the front where they were needed led to the destruction of Ukrianian infrastructure and the rail network by the Russian airforce and cruise missiles across the territory.

"My parents died for this flag."[18] The Soviet Babushka quickly became a meme and a legenad as a symbol of anti-fascist resistance.[19]

On March 25, 2022 the Russian Ministry of Defense officially confirmed that storming of Ukrainian cities was not a priority but rather the destruction of Ukrainian armed forces.[20] Russian troops only entered cities on the independent territories of the DPR and LPR.[21] High-precision weapons were used to suppress the entire military infrastructure of the enemy, the main goal being to exhaust the AFU units and force them to surrender. NATO warlords kept some units fighting, exposing civilians to risk as AFU units used civilians as human shields.

According to reports from The Times of London on March 27, 2022, Zelensky sent a handwritten letter to Putin via Roman Abramovich giving full details about Ukraine’s conditions for ending the war. Putin is reported to have responded saying, "Tell him I will destroy him."[22] Abramovich, owner of the Chelsea football club in London and a target of Uk sanctions, suffered a suspected poisoning in Kyiv while preparing for peace talks with Putin.[23]

On March 29, 2022 the Russian Defense Ministry announced it would be reducing offensive operations in the Kyiv and Chernihiv regions. The Armed Forces of Ukraine intensified attacks on civilian infrastructure in the territory of the DPR and LPR.

April 2022

On April 8, 2022 dozens of people were reported to have died in a Ukrainian Tochka-U missile attack on a railway station in the Donbas city of Kramatorsk.[24] The missile was fired from the southwest territory controlled by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The serial number on the missile identified it as coming from Ukrainian stocks. As in Mariupol, Ukrainian forces denied civilians access to escape in order to use them as human shields in urban combat.

April 11, 2022 was reported to be the worst day of the war for the Zelensky regime thus far, with over 1,100 AFU either killed, wounded, or captured in a single day. When AFU soldiers began to surrender in large groups, reports emerged that the commanders of the nationalist Azov formation, deployed their fighters in other AFU units as political commissars in order to prevent AFU fighters from surrendering.[25] AFU snipers were instructed to shoot AFU soldiers in the back if they were seen running the wrong direction. Bodies of AFU soldiers carrying surrender instructions were found, executed by their own command with a shot in the back.[26] AFU POWs attest to the presence of commissars and a rite of passage for newcomers to a unit which was videotaped - newcomers had to kill either a Russian POW or civilian.[27]

Captured UK Brimstone missile.

On April 12, 2022 it was reported that Ukraine remains in the state of permanent chaos and security collapse. Regular reports about incidents involving organized crime, looting and shooting appear from almost all areas controlled by Kyiv’s forces. Units of the so-called 'Territorial Defense' formed by the Kyiv government are among the main sources of civilian casualties and friendly fire incidents in the Kyiv-controlled part of Ukraine.[28]

May 2022

On May 1, 2022 Defense Updates reported on the delivery of hundreds of the UK Wunderwaffen Brimstone precision guided missiles to Ukraine. Defense Updates reported:

"UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has stated that victory for Ukraine is a "strategic imperative" for the West and Russian forces must be pushed out of "the whole of Ukraine". This is the clearest statement that has been made yet regarding Britain's war aims which have, until now, been limited to stating that President Putin's invasion of Ukraine "must fail and be seen to fail"....The missile has a range of 60+ km or 37+ mi and a maximum speed of Mach 1.3....It has been estimated that Brimstone is 3 times more effective than the AGM-65G Maverick missile against modern tanks, and 7 times more effective than the BL755 cluster bomb. In combat, Brimstone has demonstrated accuracy and reliability "both well above 90 percent"...This capability will fundamentally change the tactical scenario since the Russian forces will now know that they may have to face long-range precision attacks, chances of which were very limited earlier. It is to be noted that The West is sharing critical intelligence with Ukraine which can be used to prioritize and target the most important Russian assets."[29]

On May 4, 2022 Pentagon officials boasted of having trained 23,000 Ukrainian troops at its former training facility at Yavoriv[30] - most of which had already been destroyed on other fronts by May 2022.[31]

On May 8, 2022 it was reported that the Russians captured a fully intact Brimstone missile which can now be reversed engineered.[32] By the time the "hundreds" of Brimstones are launched against thousands of Russian tanks, a Russian and Chinese version of the Brimstone will likely be available. From that point forward it is only a question of who can produce more faster. The US and EU's sanction regime against Russia limits the availability of certain component materials needed. Brimstone is a next generation improvement on the American Hellfire missile, bringing Hellfire and Brimstone to the battlefield. On the same day as the disastrous and humiliating defeat and surrender at Azovstal, May 17, 2022, a Russian missile hit a military barrack at Desna, a military base 46 miles northeast of Kyiv, killing 87.[33] The base was hit again in June, this time killing 200.

Two American Howitzers were wiped out by a single kamikaze drone that landed between them. The basic drone before upgrades can be purchased at any hobby store. The Howitzers were part of an $800 million arms package. A single artillery round costs $70,000.

The 90 Howitzers[34] supplied by the United States to Ukraine had their digital fire control systems removed to avoid capture or being sold to the Russians reportedly. On May 18, 2022, the Russian MOD showed video footage of two American Howitzers knocked out by a suicide drone when it landed between them.[35] The AFU reportedly used the M777 howitzers with 155 mm caliber shells to attack civilians in the city of Donetsk. On May 19, 2022 the CIA-controlled Kyiv Independent finally report that Zelensky claimed Ukraine was losing 100 soldiers daily;[36] others had placed the figure at 500 daily two weeks earlier;[37] still others placed the figure at 400-700 daily.[38]

In early May 2022, Ukrainian commanders withdrew defenders from Popasana in order to send a contingent north to the Russian border to plant a blue and yellow papier-mâché pole in unguarded, desolate territory for a photo-op to be used in their global propaganda campaign ahead of the vote in the U.S. Congress for $40 billion in aid.[39] It was later proven to be a fake filmed in an open field nowhere near the Russian border.

In the midst of the cataclysmic events in Donbas, Ukrainian commanders sent troops north supposedly to the Russian border as a political stunt and photo op for Western media consumption.

Two months into the fighting on the Donbas front Ukrainian commanders were deserting the men they were leading.[40][41] Many of the conscripts had only two days training, as most of Ukraine's front-line soldiers had either been captured, killed, or deserted and began walking home. Morale in the AFU, as well as in the general society, dropped quickly after the fairy tale of proud and committed soldiers bravely resisting in Azovstal was shattered. On May 22, 2022, 230 AFU members were killed and 33 armored vehicles were destroyed by the Russian Armed Forces, according to the Russian MOD. In the Donetsk People’s Republic, the DPR and LPR troops with support from the Russian Armed Forces had liberated and established control over 216 settlements as of this date. War Gonzo reported the presence of two battalions of Polish infantry in the city of Pavlograd in the Dnipropetrovsk region being prepared for further transfer to the Avdiivka front.[42] Pavlograd is the most important transport hub for supplying the AFU in Donbas. Roads run from it to Marinka and the Kramatorsk-Slavic agglomeration. The railway goes towards Avdiivka. Each battalion has four "Rapier" anti-tank guns, as well also American made armored personnel carriers. It was not clear whether they were Polish regulars or mercenaries.[43] A missile attack was launched on a military facility in Pavlograd.[44]

On May 24, 2022 Politico actually reported that the US Department of Homeland Security issued a warning that American white supremacists were traveling to Ukraine so they can gain combat experience from the Ukrainian Nazis.[45]

On May 25, 2022, Kyiv regime spokesperson Alexey Arestovich blamed Germany for Ukrainian losses in the Donbas. Arestovich said,[46]

NATO proposed partitioning of Ukraine.
"Let’s be honest: Russia is now having a tactical success in Ukraine, which threatens to develop into an operational one in the Lysychansk-Severodonetsk direction. How can this be explained? The pace of lend-lease, which we expected a month ago, did not materialize. Not at the expense of American or British weapons, but at the expense of German....The German side, delaying the transfer of military equipment to us, is indirectly to blame for the fact that is happening at the front."

Arestovich was enraged by a proposal from Italy, Hungary, and Cyprus for an immediate ceasefire and for peace talks to begin[47] as the Donbas cauldron was slammed shut and 15,000 troops faced annihilation: "Go f*** yourselves with such proposals, you dumb f****."[48] Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov reiterated, "Moscow expects Kyiv to accept Moscow's demands and become aware of the de facto situation - the real situation that exists." Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych warnied that Ukraine is facing a complete loss of its sovereignty with a peoposed merger with Poland: “In 2014 already, Ukraine was designated by certain Western countries as a territory from which a total weakening of Russia should begin…Precisely as a territory, and not as an independent state, not as people wishing to live in peace with all its neighbors, not excluding Russia.”[49]

Russell Bentley, Information Officer, of the Donetsk People's Republic reported:

"on Monday May 30th, in the mid-morning hours, Three separate schools in the center of Donetsk were specifically targeted and bombed by heavy artillery of the Ukrainian Army. May 30th is traditionally the last day of the school year in Donetsk, as it is in Russia, and all schools, from kindergartens to universities, hold a celebration called "Last Bell". It is a joyous celebration, with family members attending, everyone dressed in their finest attire, with songs and poems, awards, balloons, flowers, cake and refreshments. It was these ceremonies that were specifically targeted by the Ukrainian Army, at Schools #22 and #13, and Gymnasium #33. The heavy artillery, 152mm and US-supplied 155mm shells, arrived with pinpoint accuracy, right in front of the schools, where hundreds of students, teachers and their families would have been gathered, had the celebrations not been cancelled, precisely because of the danger of ukrop nazi shelling. In spite of the precautions, two teachers, and one little girl, Lilia Ripenko died. There were also multiple wounded. Had the attack turned out as planned, there would have been scores or even hundreds of dead and wounded, many, if not most, would have been school children.[50]

First reports of a Russian build up of force west of Kursk in the Russian Federation were reported on May 30, 2022.

In an interview with the Kyiv-based Interfax news agency in late May 2022, Oleksandra Koval, director of the Ukrainian Book Institute (UBI) which is part of the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, estimated that more than 100 million copies of Russian language books would be removed from Ukrainian public libraries, fully half of all libraries’ holdings.[51] The city council of Nikolaev banned the teaching of the Russian language in schools.[52] According to a 2017 survey, 63% of the population spoke Russian, 7% Ukrainian, and 28% spoke both Ukrainian and Russian equally.[53] The Ukrainian parliament passed a bill to ban Russian-language music.[54]

June 2022

On June 1, 2022 Russia carried out a nuclear war drill inside the Russian Federation.

On June 6, 2022 the Russian MOD reported the capture of 15 villages without a fight as Ukrainian forces began disobeying the orders of Zelensky, the Ukrainian general staff and their commanders, and retreated along the Seversky Donets line.

On June 8, 2022 Ukrainian losses exceeded 800 for the day. On June 12, 2022 Zelensky signed a decree that supposedly legalized sending untrained members of the Territorial Defense to the front lines as canon fodder, a practice of the Ukrainian government that had been illegally going on in violation of the Territorial Defense members' contracts for well over a month already. The Kyiv regime turned the weapons it received from NATO and the West on the civilian population of Donbass rather than military targets. There were children among the victims. By June 14, 2022 the Kyiv regime fired a Tochka-Us against civilians in Bryansk, in the Russian Federation, and other artillery attacks along the Russian border.

On June 12, 2022 a Russian Kalibr cruise missile[55] destroyed a very large store of NATO weapons in the Ternopil region.

As of June 15, 2022 the Russian forces had liberated 816 cities, towns and villages. The Russians have been able to form military units out of captured and surrendered Ukrainian fighters, beginning in the Republic of Zaporozhye. The Ukrainian military presented the West with a wish list of heavy equipment that it felt, would not necessarily win the war, but enable them to hold the line against Russian forces. The list included: more artillery pieces than the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps combined possess; more tanks than the United Kingdom and Germany combined possess. The same day, Gen. Mark Milley, chairperson of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a press conference,

"the United States has provided over 6,500 Javelins and 20,000 other anti-armor systems. Collectively, the international community has provided almost 97,000 anti-tank systems. More anti-tank systems than there are tanks in the world,"[56]

and yet none of it was enough, Zelensky repeatedly asked for more, and the Ukrainian regime itself reported that it was losing 1,000 fighters a day.[57]

On June 17, 2022 the major oil refinery at Kremenchuk was destroyed by Russian cruise missiles.[58]

On June 19, 2022 Zelensky told a group of soldiers in Mykolaiv, "Ukraine will definitely win;"[59] hours later Lt. Gen. Igor Konashenkov of ther Russian Ministry of Defense announced that Russian sea-launched Kalibr cruise missiles wiped out the Ukrainian General Staff operating in Mykolaiv and Zaporozhye.[60] 57 top Ukrainian officers were killed in the strike. The Russian Ministry of Defense reported on June 20, 2022:

"Since 19 May, the 14th mechanized brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine alone has lost more than 2,100 people killed and wounded...Due to the low moral and psychological state of 800 people intended to make up for the losses of this formation, they refused to go to the area of ​​hostilities, accusing the officers of incompetence, bribery and nepotism in the payment of monetary allowances...In addition, in the 10th Ukrainian mountain assault brigade, about 100 servicemen of the reconnaissance unit were removed from combat missions due to mass disobedience to the command and taken to the city of Kremenchug for investigation.”

Several AFU POWs became instructors for Russian forces on how to use captured NATO missiles, such as the Javelin, NLAW, and Panzerfaust 3.[61][62][63] By one estimate, the Russians had captured more U.S. made Javelin anti-tank missiles than rhe AFU fired at Russian tanks.

By June 2022 Russian Armed Forces consistently fired 50,000 artillery rounds daily since the start of the operation;[64] in the whole of Operation Desert Storm, where the ground war lasted only four months, all branches of the United States military fired a total of 60,000 artillery rounds combined. == One of the first uses of the HIMAR rocket launch system given by the United States to Ukraine was to strike a hospital.[65]

On June 26, 2022 Russian forces retaliated for the recent bombings of civilians with American Howitzers in the Donetsk and Lugansk Republics, claiming at least 28 lives and more than 100 injured, by bombing military and industrial installations in Kyiv. The Russians launched 4 missiles on Kyiv which the Ukrainians were able to shoot down with their S-300 and BUK systems; however once being exposed, the Russians then were able to wipe the city of Kyiv's missile defense system. According to reports, one of the S-300 missiles fell on a residential apartment complex.

The U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights concluded on June 29, 2022 that the Armed Forces of the Ukraine used civilians as human shields in Stara Krasnyanka when Ukrainian soldiers took up positions inside a nursing home, effectively making the building a legitimate military target.[66]

Battle of Severodonetsk-Lysychansk

July 2022

Dmitri Medvedev's proposal for Ukraine settlement.

The battle for Severodonetsk-Lisichansk metropolitan area ended with the victory of Russian-led forces. The front line of Bakhmut/Artemovsk – Soledar-Seversk became the new hotspot.

On July 4, 2022 the civilian populations of the Russian cities of Belgorod and Kursk came under massive shelling attack by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. At least 5 civilians were killed in Belgorod, and 5 more were injured, including a 10-year-old child. According to Russian media, 3 members of a Ukrainian family from Kharkiv, who moved to Russia after the outbreak of hostilities, died as a result of the attack. Civilian infrastructure was severely damaged. At least 40 houses were damaged, 5 of them were completely destroyed. The attack was carried out with Ukrainian Tochka-U missiles.

On July 5, 2022 five children were killed by Ukrainian shelling in the Donbas.

On July 6, 2022 seven civilians were killed in the Donetsk People’s Republic, including three children. 28 civilians were injured, including 8 children. The AFU shelled the residential quarter in the town of Makeevka. As a result of the attack, three children and a man were killed. The victims are an 8-years-old girl, a 7-years old boy and a 17-years-old boy. 10 others civilians were injured, including 7 children. The shelling was carried out by the 25th separate assault brigade of the AFU, commander – Colonel Kurash Evgeny Yuryevich; chief of artillery – Lieutenant Colonel of the Chapter Vladimir Viktorovich. The Russian Investigative Committee opened a criminal case,[67] and the criminals if convicted will face capital punishment when captured by Russian forces. An eyewitnesses described the attack:

“After it calmed down a little bit, I went out on the balcony, looked: there were two children on the playground. A boy and a girl… The girl was still sitting, she was alive. She pulled the boy … Then, when I rushed out… the girl was already lying on the boy."

Another boy was injured as a result of the shelling in Donetsk. He risked losing his arm but doctors managed to save it.

On July 7, 2022 a Ukrainian shell killed a 30-year-old woman on Stakhanov Street in Donetsk. 10 more people were injured, including a child.

On July 7, 2022 a group of Belarussian neo-Nazi mercenaries were destroyed near Seversk.

On July 7, 2022 the Russian Ministry of Defense reported on the results of the analysis of the military-biological activity of the USA and its allies in Ukraine and other regions of the world. The report confirms that:

  • Ukrainian special units were planning to use biological weapons in Eastern Ukraine;
  • Ukrainian servicemen were involved as volunteers in experiments to assess the tolerance of dangerous infectious diseases;
  • the official activities of the Pentagon in Ukraine are just a front for illegal military and biological research
  • Ukraine and other post-Soviet states have become a testing ground for biological weapons not only for the USA, but also for its NATO allies
  • the U.S. persists on its policy of building up its own military and biological capabilities in circumvention of international agreements.

Larry Johnson[68] summarized reports of the Russian MOD between July 4 and 9, 2022 which by summer 2022 had proven more credible than any informtion coming from the Ukrainian government, the Pentagon, the D.C.-based Institute for the Study of War, UK sources, or Western mainstream media. A total of 20 specific Ukrainian military forces were hit with missile and artillery strikes during this 6 day period (the numbers include locations identified as a base for foreign mercenaries). 50% of the strikes occurred in the DPR. Kharkiv, which is about 300 miles northeast of Donetsk, accounted for three strikes (4-6 July 4-6, 2022). There was one strike in Zelenodolsk, which is in the Dnepropetrovsk oblast. That missile strike killed 40.

In the Donetsk People’s Republic, Russia hit 13 Command Posts (CPs) between July 4 and 6, 2022. In Nikolaev, Russia hit 6 CPs and killed 375 Ukrainians. A Foreign Mercenary base also was hit. The Russian MOD did not report hitting any CPs in the Kharkiv region. However, the missile strikes did result in 535 dead Ukrainian troops. The Russian MOD briefing also provides a summary of military equipment destroyed. For example, the MOD reports that 3,995 tanks and armored combat vehicles have been destroyed. Ukraine started the war with 1472 tanks and 20 tank destroyers.

By July 10, 2022 Ukraine claimed to have mobilized a one million person force. More and more females were appearing on the front line. Ukraine reportedly will have 200,000 females under arms eventually.

According to a July 11, 2022 report in Ukrainian media, Ruslan Onishenko, commander of the now-disbanded Tornado Battalion, was freed as part of Zelensky’s scheme to release prisoners with combat experience. Along with an unwavering commitment to fascism, Onishenko is known as a psychopathic sadist who was involved in sexually assaulting children, brutally torturing prisoners, and murder.[69] Onishenko’s release follows a February 27, 2022 order by Zelensky to free other convicted former Tornado members like Danil “Mujahed” Lyashuk, a fanatic from Belarus who has openly emulated ISIS and boasted of torturing captives for sheer enjoyment. According to Zelensky‘s decree, prisoners with combat experience would be allowed to “compensate for their guilt” by fighting in the “hottest spots.”[70]

On July 11, 2022 Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree allowing all people living in territories occupied by the Maidan regime to apply for citizenship of the Russian Federation.[71]

On July 13, 2022 the U.S. State Department issued Stage 4 war alert declaring: “Ukraine Travel Advisory: Do Not Travel And Leave Immediately”.[72]

On July 22, 2022 the Russian MOD reported the destruction of a fourth U.S. built HIMAR.[73] The HIMARs cost U.S. taxpayers about $5.5 million per unit, whereas the ZALA Lancet kamikaze drones that destroy them are fairly cheap.[74]

The Russian MOD reoported that on July 24, 2022 a strike by Russia’s Aerospace Forces (VDV) on an ammunition depot in the Dnepropetrovsk region destroyed more than a hundred missiles for the US-made HIMARS Multiple launch rocket system. The missiles cost $3-5 million each. It is also noted that up to 120 Ukrainian military personnel guarding the facility, as well as foreign mercenaries and technical specialists were killed.

On July 25, 2022 it was reported that Ukrainian intelligence and its NATO allies were attempting to bribe Russian pilots with $1 million in cash, EU passports for themselves and their wives, and a comfortable life abroad if they were to deliver a Russian aircraft to Ukraine. Christo Grozov, head of bellingcat.com, was said to be in charge of the operation.[75] In attempting to hijack Russian combat aircraft, Ukrainian intelligence revealed its own air defense layouts by letting it slip what settlements of Ukraine there are the largest number of MANPADS for the pilots to avoid.[76]

Aftermath of strike on Elenovka POW camp.

On July 29, 2022 Reuters reported the prisoner-of-war camp at Elenovka was hit by a U.S.-built HIMAR,[77] causing the deaths of 40 prisoners and 13 guards and prison employees.[78] At least one hundred other prisoners were injured. Sources reported that captured Ukrainian prisoners-of-war were giving up much critical information on U.S./Ukraine/NATO operations and illegal weapon's transfers, including arms to Kurdish terrorists in Syria to be used against NATO member Turkiye.[79] Ukraine forces on the battlefield attempting to surrender have been documented to have been executed by Ukrainian commanders. A bill was introduced into the Ukrainian parliament granting legal authority to Ukrainian commanders to execute Ukrainian soldiers who wanted to surrender. Morale was reported to have fallen in recent weeks among Azov Battalion detainees at Elenovka as they realized the Kyiv regime was not negotiating their exchange for Russian POWs, and they began giving up more information in exchange for more lenient sentences for war crimes.

August 2022

In late July 2022 Ukrainian and NATO strategists began removing artillery and manpower from Avdiivka, and transferring them to the west bank of the Dnieper for the so-called upcoming "counteroffensive" against the Kherson bridgehead. This action allowed a Russian breakthrough against the heretofore impregnable Avdiivka frontline entrenchment, which held for eight years since 2014 and has been a key artillery firing point against the citizens of Donetsk.

As the breakthrough continued on August 2, 2022, the Ukrainian 54th mechanized brigade lost 50 soldiers to friendly fire. Ukrainian forces completely destroyed members of its own 56th mechanized brigade by artillery fire as they were retreating from the village of Pisky. Ukrainian journalist Yuriy Butusov, who was embedded with the AFU in Donbas, posted an expletive-laden report from Pisky revealing “There is no counter-battery fire, none at all...Russian forces are firing 6,500 shells per f****** village in less than 24 hours...It’s been like this for six days now, and it’s hard to fathom how any number of our infantry remain alive under this barrage...Without counter-battery fighting, it turns into a senseless meat grinder, where huge numbers of our infantry are chewed up in one day...A reserve platoon that tried to advance was taken apart in minutes, with only one out of 15 men left unharmed...All the reserves are spent, the military equipment goes up in flames, and the enemy approaches and takes our positions without any problems after another barrage of artillery...Right now we are losing Péski, all our human and material capabilities are almost exhausted”. Pisky was once a more affluent suburb of the city of Donetsk with 2,000 inhabitants; after the Kyiv regime attacked the Donetsk airport in 2014, the population fell to as low as 6 inhabitants at one point. Russian forces deliberately chose Pisky as a weak point in the Avdiivka front as a breakthrough point specifically because of the low risk of danger to civilians. The collapse of a once prosperous community since 2014 is emblematic of the devastation the U.S.-backed Maidan regime wrought upon the Ukrainian economy and population.

Expansion of war

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a Ukrainian "nationalist", testified at the Trump impeachment that the "interagency consensus" overruled the elected president on the matter of war with Russia.

The "interagency consensus" of the United States government has conducted an armed proxy war against ethnic Russians living in the Donbas for eight years, since 2014.[80] President Donald John Trump was impeached in 2019 by the Democratic party, who control the United States House of Representatives, for going against this "interagency consensus" of the Executive Branch to foment a proxy war between the United States and Russia in Ukraine.[81]

On April 27, 2022 the Exxon corporation declared force majeure, or exemption from liability for its Sakhalin-1 operations which produces about 273,000 barrels of crude oil per day for export to South Korea, Japan, Australia, Thailand and the United States. On April 30, the electrical plant at Sakhalin went up in flames.[82]

Russian military analyst Viktor Litovkin, who is also head of the military news editorial office for the TASS news agency, said in a May 9, 2022 show on Sky News Arabia (UAE) that if the West declares war on Russia or sends soldiers to fight in Ukraine, it would mean all-out war. He said that sending weapons to Ukraine is one thing, but sending Western armed forces to Ukraine would be a different matter altogether. Litovkin added: “Russia has nuclear weapons that can destroy many European and non-European countries.”[84]

The Predator and MQ-9 Reaper drones operate on a satellite uplink. Once it is airborne, the drone can be controlled directly from the United States. That makes the drone operators combatants and legitimate targets.

All told, only the 30 NATO states and another 30 NATO vassal states worldwide support NATO's war on Russia. More than a 2/3 majority of the United Nations General Assembly remain independent or aligned with Russia. Even among the warring NATO states and its subject clients, deep division remain both within the alliance itself, and within the populations of those countries and their colonial subjects whose rogue leaders have led them into war with Russia.

NATO aggressive acts

On May 4, 2022 the New York Times reported that NATO was complicit in the assassination of several Russian generals through real time intelligence sharing of geolocation surveillance. At least 10 Generals were reported to have been targeted and killed, and numerous Colonel and Lt. Colonel battalion commanders.[85]

On May 24, 2022 Hungary declared a state of emergency.[86]

On May 28, 2022 Europol, the European Unions law enforcement agency, issued a grave warning that NATO weapons flooding into Ukraine were ending up in the hands of criminal organizations.[87]

Former Clinton era NATO chief Wesley Clark, who waged NATO's first war of aggression against Serbia in 1998, was quoted by the Voice of America, the Russian language edition of Deutsche Welle, and the neo-fascist Euromaidanpress saying in an online discussion organized by the Atlantic Council on June 15, 2022,

"The war in Ukraine cannot be stopped without the direct intervention of NATO, said Wesley Clark, the former commander of the alliance's armed forces in Europe. "The idea that Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg is defending now, and which finds support among other members of the alliance - that NATO can actively not intervene if it is not directly attacked - this idea remained in the 90s. It's time to learn the lessons. NATO must intervene. Let's officially recognize this and order the Russians to cease fire," Clark was quoted as saying by Voice of America. According to the retired US Army general, the alliance should either "go beyond the outlined framework or cease its activities."[88][89][90]

On August 1, 2022 in an interview published in the UK Telegraph, Ukrainian defense official Vadim Skibitsky acknowledged they consult with Washington before launching strikes and that Washington has veto power over decision-making.[91][92] Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova responded with the statement: “No other confirmation of the direct involvement of the United States in hostilities on the territory of Ukraine is required...They are fully involved…Now Kiev representatives are talking about their military involvement not only through the supply of weapons, but through personnel management in the ranks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, direct instructions and the choice of targets”.[93]

Black Sea provocations

Ukraine mined its own harbors,[94] with the military advice of NATO, blocking their own export of their own grain harvest.

On April 19, 2022 the Times of London reported that the United States was indeed responsible for the April 13 sinking of the Moskva by relaying information to the AFU on the location of the ship via P-8 Poseidon surveillance aircraft with anti-ship and anti-submarine capabilities.[95] Moskva was positioned near one of 3 drilling rigs, used for monitoring a whole sector of the Black Sea with hydrophones and NEVA-BS radar, the most westward one, BK-2 Odessa, approximately 66 km northeast from Snake Island (Russian: Zmeiny Island). The whole thing was integrated in the regional monitoring systems. According to an article in the Strategic Culture Foundation a source in Brussels told independent journalist Pepe Escobar,[96]

The Moskva was disabled and sunk on April 13, 2022 reportedly with NATO assistance.[97]
Humanitarian corridor for safe passage of foreign ships established by the Russian Navy.
"The Moskva was on combat duty 100-120 km away from Odessa – controlling the airspace within a radius of 250-300 km. So in fact it was ensuring the overlap of the southern half of Moldova, the space from Izmail to Odessa and part of Romania (including the port of Constanta). Its positioning could not be more strategic. Moskva was interfering with NATO’s covert transfer of military aircraft (helicopters and fighter jets) from Romania to Ukraine. It was being watched 24/7. NATO air reconnaissance was totally on it.

As the Moskva “killer”, NATO may have not chosen the Neptune, as spread by Ukrainian propaganda; the source points to the fifth-generation NSM PKR (Naval Strike Missile, with a range of 185 km, developed by Norway and the Americans.) He describes the NSM as “able to reach the target along a programmed route thanks to the GPS-adjusted INS, independently find the target by flying up to it at an altitude of 3-5 meters. When reaching the target, the NSM maneuvers and deploys electronic interference. A highly sensitive thermal imager is used as a homing system, which independently determines the most vulnerable places of the target ship.”

As a direct consequence of hitting the Moskva, NATO managed to reopen an air corridor for the transfer of aircraft to the airfields of Chernivtsi, Transcarpathian and Ivano-Frankivsk regions.

Oil rigs in the Black Sea attacked by Ukraine, June 20, 2022.

The provocation marked a significant escalation of electronic warfare in international waters and airspace with Russian public opinion and the families of missing sailors demanding a response from their government. On May 23, 2022 it was announced that Denmark would provide an unspecified number of US-made Harpoon anti-ship missiles and launchers to Ukraine.[98] Denmark’s supply of Harpoon missiles to Ukraine to fight the Russian Black Sea Fleet sent off alarm bells in the Kremlin, revealing the goals of NATO's "coalition of the willing" for provocative engagements with Russia's Black Sea fleet. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko noted that if foreign warships enter the Black Sea under the pretext of escorting civilian ships with grain, this would inevitably lead to the war between Russia and NATO. Russia would be concerned about escorting ships with grain, especially if they were British ships. On May 25 according to Radio Liberty Moscow offered safe passage of Ukrainian food exports.[99] The Russian Defense Ministry opened the first humanitarian corridor for foreign ships from Mariupol. In a telephone conversation with Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer, a neutral intermediary, TASS reported that President Putin said Ukraine should de-mine its ports to ensure free passage of the blocked ships as soon as possible.[100]

In early June 2022, the Russians set up an S-400 surface-to-air missile system on Snake Island.

On June 20, 2022 three oil drilling platforms in the Black Sea west of Crimea were attacked by the AFU, killing 7 civilians. 94 people were rescued, 3 injured, 1 with shrapnel and 2 with burns. 8 people remain missing. The oil platforms are non-military, civilian projects. The Kyiv regime claims residents of Crimea re Ukrainian citizens; the Kyiv regime gave no explanation for murdering its own citizens working on a civilian infrastructure project. Russia’s Investigative Committee opened a criminal case on the terrorist attack by Ukrainian troops on the oil drilling platforms. Authorities will find out information about the Ukrainian military who carried out the strikes, and investigators will also establish the manufacturer of the missiles and if NATO is complicit in an act of terrorism.

Transnistria
"We will liberate Transnistria!" digital propaganda poster by the Ukrainian Defense Ministry’s psychological operations branch in Ukrainian and Romanian languages circulated in April 2020.

By late April 2022 in the territory of Moldova, warehouses of military uniforms and shoes, NATO army rations and other auxiliary military equipment were being hastily created and filled from abroad. But not weapons depots. There is no need to import weapons, since when Moldova is occupied by the Romanian army, the latter will "come with everything of its own".[101] The objective appears to be a storage depot in Kolbasnaya of roughly 20,000 tons of munitions left over from the Red Army’s evacuation of former Warsaw Pact countries.[102] There is also information about the concentration of Ukrainian units on the border with Transnistria. Most of Transnistria is no more than 10 kilometers wide. The Transnistrian army has zero chance to counter the offensive for any significant period of time without external support in the event of an attack from both sides (and this is exactly what is being planned, as the Nazi governor of the Odessa region Marchenko has already hinted). Polish, Romanian and Moldovan armed forces are concentrating thousands of troops,[103] while from the east, AFU troops and a group of thousands of foreign mercenaries, including Canadian and Croatian units, fighters from Scandinavian countries, and at least 1,000 fighters from the Turkish far-right organization Grey Wolves are concentrated.

The number of the Operational Group of Russian troops in Transnistria is about 1,300. The Armed Forces of Transnistria count up to 7,500, while the Armed Forces of Moldova count up to 5,200 servicemen with a reserve of 60,000 people. The number of Romanian Armed Forces is up to 70,000.

A joint group of 22,000 – 25,000 Polish-Romanian-Moldovan soldiers would be enough to carry out such an operation in the region. The main combat work will fall on the Romanian and Polish assault units. It is estimated that 6,000 Romanian and 3,000 Polish troops of the rapid reaction forces would be enough.

Military clashes of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation with the Armed Forces of Poland and Romania on the territory of a non-member state of NATO is the perfect scenario for the Kyiv and Washington regimes. In case of the opening of another front in the neighboring country, the AFU counter offensive should be expected in the south of Ukraine with active defense in the East.

This was the main scenario Zelensky was briefed on by Blinken and Austin on April 24, 2022 which follows ongoing international political developments. The preparation and composition of the sixth package of EU sanctions are associated with events in Transnistria. The escalation of the situation in Transnistria corresponds to Washington’s statements that the United States is changing course towards Russia, from the desire to exhaust Moscow economic sanctions, to a direct military confrontation. This was announced by Washington after the meeting with Zelensky. Vladimir Putin responded to NATO's challenge on April 27, 2022 in speech to the Council of Lawmakers of the Russian Federation in St. Petersburg:.

"if anyone intends to intervene from the outside and create a strategic threat to Russia that is unacceptable to us, they should know that our retaliatory strikes will be lightning-fast. We have the tools we need for this, the likes of which no one else can claim at this point. We will not just brag; we will use them if necessary. And I want everyone to know this; we have already made all the decisions on this matter."[104]

The expected timing of the scenario is from May 12 to May 25, 2022, or from June 15 to June 25, depending on the actions and successes of the Russian Federation in the Donbas region. Speculation existed that Russian POWs taken in Transnistria can then be bartered for the 4,000 Ukrainian POWs already in Russian hands as well as the 1,500 Azov Nazis still held up in the Azovstal. The NATO occupation of Transnistria would complicate operations on the western flank of the Odessa cauldron.

Provocations

NATO attack on transmission towers, April 25, 2002.

On April 25, 2022 the State Security building and two Russian language broadcast facilities were bombed.[105] Igor Girkin reported that a large number of Romanian soldiers and officers were sent to Moldova under the guise of "Moldovan military". In particular, in all headquarters, a significant part of Moldovan officers were replaced by officers of the Romanian army in all key positions, and in the commandant's companies of military units performing the functions of military police, the entire personnel had been replaced with Romanians.

On May 3, 2022 a quadcopter carrying explosives was intercepted over the TV and radio center in the village of Mayak. On May 5, shooting was reported in the area of a border crossing between Ukraine and Transnistria. Law enforcement agencies confirmed that indiscriminate shooting took place on the territory of Ukraine near the village of Pavlovka, near the village of Kuchurgan, in the area of the railway bridge, which was blown up on March 4. An unidentified UAV dropped two explosive devices in the area of the former airfield near the village of Voronkovo. On May 6, another UAV dropped two explosive devices in the same area. The attack was repeated about an hour later. The UAVs reportedly flew from the territory of Ukraine.
