There are multiple issues that led to the Russian incursion into Ukraine in February 2022:
- ethnic cleansing of native Russians in the Donbas region and unrelenting shelling of civilian communities by the Maidan regime since 2014;
- the Kyiv regime's discrimination against Russian speaking people and making them second-class citizens in the country of their birth;
- collective security between the Donbas Republics and the Russian Federation;
- NATO infiltration into Ukraine and supplying weapons and training to neo-Nazi groups;
- efforts to dispose of old Soviet-era weapons stockpiles among former Warsaw Pact members and upgrade them with modern standard NATO equipment;
- U.S. biological laboratories doing research with dangerous pathogens on the territory of Ukraine near the Russian border;
- the transformation of Ukraine into a testing ground for pharmaceutical experiments by Big Pharma in circumvention of international safety standards and to by-pass regulations, informed consent, and disclosure laws in Western countries;
- competition between the European Union and the Eurasian Economic Union over the boundaries of their respective zones of influence, playing a central role in the illegal Maidan coup;
- oil and natural gas deposits beneath the predominantly Russian areas of Donbas and Crimea;
- The EU and NATO's desire to dismember the Russian Federation in order to plunder its vast energy and natural resources;
- Central Asia, the heart of the "Eurasian Balkans" deemed to be the key to ensuring American global hegemony by Zbigniew Brzezinski and Henry Kissinger and their contemporary cohorts;
- the petrodollar system, which Russia has the potential to compete with and disrupt;
- religious sectarian rivalry between orthodox churches which claim to be the legitimate Orthodox Church of the Ukrainian people, which has led to violations of religious liberty by the Kyiv regime per the UN Human Rights Commission;
- the Culture War as Leftists in the West attempt to extend their agenda into Ukraine with gay pride marches to challenge the conservative values of both Ukrainians and Russians.
NATO-backed neo-Nazi proxy forces attacked the Donbas again on February 14, 2022. Military forces of the Russian Federation (RF) entered Ukraine on February 24, 2022 to put an end to the ethnic violence and de-nazify the areas where the children and grandchildren of World War II Nazi collaborators had been carrying an ethnic hatred of Russians since the Holodomor of the 1930s and earlier. A wave of patriotism swept over Russian society, viewing the operation as a second Great Patriotic War. Soldiers felt they were sent to finish the job of de-nazifying Ukraine that their grandfathers left unfinished after World War II. The use of civilian human shields by the U.S-trained Armed Forces of Ukraine led to civilian casualties and was a primary strategy of the NATO proxies. Ukrainian security forces committed reprisal actions and atrocities against ethnic Russians and Russian speakers in areas which Russian forces vacated. Numerous attacks by Ukrainian forces on its own citizens, which had been ongoing in the Donbas region for the eight previous years, spread outside the Donbas to create false flag images of attacks by Russians. Efforts to rehabilitate the image and reputation of Nazis and Nazism by Western and Ukrainian media and psyops were non-stop since the beginning of the Russian incursion, with permanent and debilitating damage to the West's educational system and image throughout the civilized world. By early April 2022, the Armed Forces of Ukraine had been so degraded and decimated, or were out of fuel and unable to retreat, the Maidan regime doubled down on soft power, psychological operations and propaganda to garner sympathy from the West for continued support.

When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, 25 million ethnic Russians woke up the next day finding themselves citizens of countries outside Russia proper. Working and retired ethnic Russians in their new countries of citizenship lost the social security pension benefits that the former Soviet regime had promised them. None of these citizens and workers had any democratic voice in their fate. Many if not most of these ethnic Russians themselves were the descendants of victims of the Soviet communist regime whose parents or grandparents had been deported to Soviet Republics outside of the Russian Federation by the Communist Party of the Soviet Union's security services, the NKVD for being uncooperative in the Soviet system. Putin called the loss of Russian citizenship and citizenship rights as a result of the collapse of the Soviet Union a "genuine tragedy". As of 2014 when the U.S.-backed Maidan coup occurred in Ukraine, 10 million Russians lived as a minority in multicultural Ukraine. Immediately after the new unelected regime was installed by the West, discriminatory laws and ethnic violence targeted the Russian minority. The Donbas war claimed nearly 14,000 lives between 2014 and 2022, mostly civilians including children and elderly, as the West and the rest of the "civilized" world ignored the crisis.
In the run up to the wider war, both the United States and NATO rejected, without consideration, two formal diplomatic proposals by the Russian Federation for peace treaties between the Russian Federation, United States and NATO to avoid war. The treaty proposals would require NATO to pledge not granting Ukraine and the Republic of Georgia NATO membership; U.S. missiles in Poland and Romania to be removed; and NATO deployments to Eastern Europe reversed. The U.S. and NATO rejected the proposals out of hand in December 2021, and instead acted aggressively by sending more NATO forces to Eastern Europe and continued to heavily arm Ukraine.
Ethnic cleansing in Donbas
- See also: Ethnic cleansing in the Donbas
During the U.S.-backed Maidan coup many inhabitants of the Donbas wanted to join Russia. In April 2014 the government building of Donetsk was occupied by separatist resistance fighters. On April 7, 2014 the resistance declared the independent "Republic of Donetsk". It was only recognized by South Ossetia. Since 2014 the Ukrainian government tried to regain the city. The Ukrainian government's neo-Nazi Azov Battalion fired artillery shells from Mariupol on Donetsk's civilian and residential areas. They artillery shelling from Mariupol, 30 kilometers from the border, continued for 8years killing many innocentsd, including children. The Azov Battalion received training, weapons, supplies and satellite intelligence information from NATO.
Hromadske TV media is one of the most-watched networks in Ukraine. Hromadske is funded by the Dutch and US Embassies in Kyiv, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, the European Endowment for Democracy, and Free Press Unlimited. Silicon Valley oligarch Pierre Omidary was also involved in creating the outlet. Hromadske hosted Ukrainian Nazi journalist Bogdan Boutkevitch during the Maidan coup, demanding genocide of ethnic Russians. Boutkevitch said that Donbas,
|"is severely overpopulated with people nobody has any use for. Trust me I know what I am saying. If we take, for example, just Donetsk oblast, there are approximately 4 million inhabitants, at least 1.5 million of them are superfluous. We don't need to "understand" Donbass, we need to understand Ukrainian national interests. Donbass must be exploited as a resource, which it is. I don't claim to have a quick solution recipe, but the most important thing that must be done - no matter how cruel it may sound, there is a certain category of people that MUST BE EXTERMINATED."|
In early December 2021 it was reported that the Armed Forces of Ukraine deployed 125,000 troops, half of its forces, against the predominantly Russian speaking Donbas region of Eastern Ukraine. Previously, on October 19, 2022, The Jerusalem Post reported that Canada, the US, France, the UK and other Western countries helped train neo-Nazi extremists in Ukraine. Military analyst Boris Rozhin predicted an escalation of the conflict by the Kyiv regime and their NATO consultants with a full-scale provocation in Donbas. Using the 1995 model employed in Serbia called Operation Storm, 230,000-250,000 Serbs fled the territory of Serbian Krajina, and Croatian soldiers committed numerous war crimes against convoys of refugees and the remaining civilians, including the Dvor and Grubori massacres. The Ukrainian authorities intend to repeat the “Serbian scenario” in the territory of Donbas in order to expel citizens of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics from their homeland at gunpoint and take control of the region. More than 600,000 Russian citizens reside in Donbas.
In Donetsk region, between the evenings of 18 and 20 February 2022, the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine recorded 2,158 ceasefire violations, including 1,100 explosions. In the previous reporting period, it recorded 591 ceasefire violations in the region. In Luhansk region, between the evenings of 18 and 20 February, the Mission recorded 1,073 ceasefire violations, including 926 explosions. In the previous reporting period, it recorded 975 ceasefire violations in the region. The OSCE was later found to have faked reports over years of the duration of the conflict by hiding Ukrainian attacks on civilians as well as actually smuggling mortar shells to neo-Nazi forces.
As tensions escalated in mid-February 2022, some 700,000 women, children, and elderly were being evacuated to Rostov in neighboring Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the Russian government to house and feed people fleeing the Ukrainian military advance once they arrived in southern Russia. Each refugee arriving from Donbass is to be given a payment of 10,000 roubles ($129). RT reported Denis Pushilin, the head of the Donetsk Peoples Republic warned, "Kiev can start a full-scale assault on Donbass at any moment, the situation is critical” A full-scale mobilization was ordered, and men 18 to 55 were conscripted to remain and defend against the Ukrainian military attack.
US owned biological labs
Ukraine has no control over the military bio-laboratories on its own territory. According to the 2005 Agreement between the US Department of Defense (DoD) and the Ministry of Health of Ukraine. The Ukrainian government is prohibited from public disclosure of sensitive information about the US program and Ukraine is obliged to transfer to the US DoD dangerous pathogens for biological research. The Pentagon has been granted access to certain state secrets of Ukraine in connection with the projects under their agreement. The DoD Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has funded 11 bio-laboratories in Ukraine.
Among the set of bilateral agreements between the US and Ukraine is the establishment of the Science and Technology Center in Ukraine (STCU) – an international organization funded mainly by the US government which has been accorded diplomatic status. The US personnel in Ukraine work under diplomatic cover. The STCU officially supports projects of scientists previously involved in the Soviet biological weapons program. Over the past 20 years the STCU has invested over $285 million in funding and managing some 1,850 projects of scientists who previously worked on the development of weapons of mass destruction.
One such biological lab contractor is Metabiota, a company financed by Hunter Biden's Rosemont Seneca partnership with the state owned Bank of China. Metabiota was awarded a $18.4 million federal contract under the so-called "Defense Threat Reduction Program" in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia and Ukraine. Metabiota receives the lion's share of funding as a U.S. defense contractor for bio labs in Ukraine.
Captured documents published by Russia claimed the labs were working on biological weapons such as anthrax and plague and that the Pentagon instructed the labs to destroy them in violation of Article 1 of the UN Biological Weapons Convention. Russia released captured U.S. documents indicating that among the work of the U.S.-funded biolabs was the testing of 400 and 4000 Ukrainian soldiers, respectively, for antibodies to Crimea-Congo fever and regional hantaviruses, and a search for anthrax spores in soil at livestock graves.
On March 7, 2022, the Russian military claimed to have identified 30 sites where pathogenic research under the direction of the U.S. Defense Department had been occurring on the territory of Ukraine. The Russian Ministry of Defense stated, "The Ukrainian biological laboratories in Lvov were conducting work with infectious agents of plague, anthrax, and brucellosis, while the labs in Kharkov and Poltava were working with infectious agents of diphtheria, salmonellosis, and dysentery…The government in Kiev had sent to the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in the United States thousands of patients’ serum samples, primarily from patients of “Slavic ethnicity”, under the pretext of testing COVID-19 treatment methods”.
The term "biological weapons" includes biological formulations that contain pathogenic micro-organisms and toxins, as well as the means of delivery and use of said formulations. While the priority for Ukrainian healthcare is socially significant diseases such as HIV, poliomyelitis, measles and hepatitis, US customers are interested in a completely different nomenclature: cholera, tularemia, plague and hantaviruses.
As a result of the special military operation on the territory of Ukraine, facts of work with the specified pathogens, which are potential agents of biological weapons, have been revealed. At the same time, it was noted that Ukraine had sent a request to the manufacturing company regarding the possibility of equipping the Bayraktar drones with aerosol equipment. In addition on March 9, 2022 three unmanned aerial vehicles equipped with 30-litre containers and equipment for spraying formulations were detected by Russian reconnaissance units in Kherson region. At the end of April 2022, ten more were found near Kakhovka.
Unprovoked, NATO began arming and training Ukrainian military and para-military neo-Nazi forces after the 2014 Obama administration-backed Maidan coup which overthrew the democratically elected administration of President Viktor Yanukovych. When the U.S. Congress barred funding for the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion in 2018, NATO proceeded to train Azov Battalion Nazis in Canada as part of the West's supposed "rules based order." The neo-Nazi Azov Battalion, which was incorporated into the Ukrainian National Guard after the Maidan coup, had been conducting an unrelenting war against Russian civilians in the Donbas region since 2014. Azov's International Department trained white supremacist protesters in the 2017 Charlottesville march. The Donbas war is recognized by the Orthodox Christian Church as a struggle between the Western globalists' gay agenda and traditional family, moral, and religious values. For this reason, the international media has ignored what otherwise would be considered a policy of ethnic cleansing of Russians from the Donbas by the NATO-backed fascist Kyiv regime.
President Putin remarked in 2021, "As for NATO’s enlargement and the advancement of NATO infrastructure towards Russia’s borders, this is a matter of paramount significance as far as the security of Russians and Russia goes...I do not want to use harsh words, but they simply spat upon our interests." French Premier Emmanuel Macron said at the height of the crisis, "The geopolitical objective of Russia today is clearly not Ukraine but to clarify the rules of cohabitation with NATO and the EU."
In March 2022 NATO warlord Jens Stoltenberg said that any support from China would help Russia to continue to wage war and that China has an obligation as a member of the UN Security Council to uphold international law. The spokesperson of the Chinese Mission to the EU responded:
|"we will never forget who had bombed our embassy in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. We need no lecture on justice from the abuser of international law. As a Cold War remnant and the world’s largest military alliance, NATO continues to expand its geographical scope and range of operations. What kind of role it has played in world peace and stability? NATO needs to have good reflection.|
Special Military Operation
On February 23, 2022 Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered Russian troops into Greater Ukraine in a demilitarization and denazification operation. 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 04:00 Moscow time on 24 February 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. Kyiv regime sources reported throughout the day that Russian units had launched attacks on numerous targets, 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. Zelensky had just days earlier threatened Russia with a dirty nuclear bomb made from nuclear waste.
During ceasefire negotiations on a Russian proposal to create humanitarian corridors for civilians to escape encirclement in Ukranian Neo-Nazi strongholds, Ukrainian Security forces murdered a top Ukrainian negotiator trying to avert a humanitarian crisis.
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. 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.
|"My parents died for this flag." Russians were horrified by the disrespect NATO fascists openly displayed toward the heroes who died to destroy Nazism. A wave of Patriotism swept across Russian society.|
In the Donbas, Ukrainian forces entered a village and prodded an elderly couple to say, "Slava Ukraine" ("Glory to Ukraine"), the Ukrainian Nazi equivalent of the fascist "Heil Hitler" greeting, upon hearing the elderly wife say "Slava Russia". They attempted to bribe the couple with humanitarian aid to use the fascist greeting. In a viral video, the elderly woman approached the Ukrainian troops holding a World War II Soviet flag. A Ukrainian soldier handed the woman a plastic bag with food and took the flag, laid it on the ground, and stood on it. The elderly babushka said, "My parents died for this flag, and you are standing on it. Here, I don't want it," as she handed the food back and demanded he give back the flag. The video went viral, and became an iconic symbol of Russian resistance to NATO and Ukrainian fascism.
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.
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. Russian troops only entered cities on the independent territories of the DPR and LPR. 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." 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.
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.
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. 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. 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. 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.
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.
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."|
On May 8, 2022 it was reported that the Russians captured a fully intact Brimstone missile which can now be reversed engineered. 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.
The 90 Howitzers 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.
Two months into the fighting on the Donbas front Ukrainian commanders were deserting the men they were leading. 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 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. Each battalion has four anti-tank "Rapier" guns, as well aso American made armored personnel carriers. It was not clear whether they were Polish regulars or mercenaries.
Legality of operation
Vladimir Putin set forth a claim under the doctrine of 'anticipatory collective self-defense', devised originally by the Clinton administration and NATO in regard to the 1998 Kosovo conflict, as it applies to Article 51 of the United Nations Charter. The unilateral declarations of independence by the Donbas republics are completely legal and precedented by the West's successful demands for Kosovo to be recognized as independent from Serbia, and adjudicated as such by the International Courts.
The Organization of World Peace reported in 2021, “according to Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council Decree no. 117/2021, Ukraine has committed to putting all options on the table to taking back control over the Russian annexed Crimea region. Signed on March 24th, President Zelensky has committed the country to pursue strategies that . . . ‘will prepare and implement measures to ensure the de-occupation and reintegration of the peninsula.’” Given that the residents of Crimea, most of whom are ethnic Russians, are quite happy with the current state of affairs under Russian governance – this, according to a 2020 Washington Post report – Zelensky’s threat in this regard was not only a threat against Russia itself but was also a threat of potentially massive bloodshed against a people who do not want to go back to Ukraine. The Donbas war represents a much more compelling case for justifying Russian intervention under the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) doctrine which has been advocated by such Western ‘humanitarians’ as Hillary Clinton, Samantha Power, and Susan Rice, and which was relied upon to justify the NATO interventions in countries like the former Yugoslavia and Libya.
|"The purpose of this operation is to protect people who, for eight years now, have been facing humiliation and genocide perpetrated by the Kiev regime. To this end, we will seek to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine, as well as bring to trial those who perpetrated numerous bloody crimes against civilians, including against citizens of the Russian Federation. It is not our plan to occupy the Ukrainian territory. We do not intend to impose anything on anyone by force."|
Expansion of war
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. 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.
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.
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.”
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.
Black Sea engagements
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. 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,
|"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.
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.
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". 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. 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, 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."|
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.
On April 25, 2022 the State Security building and two Russian language broadcast facilities were bombed. 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
Evidence suggests Polish intelligence has fed exaggerated and phony anti-Russian information on Russian activities in Ukraine to NATO to inflame tensions since at least 2014.
On March 8, 2022, the government of Poland announced it would transfer all of its Russian-made MIG-29 jets to the Rammstein Air Base in Germany. The jets will be placed “at the disposal of the Government of the United States of America” which in turn is expected to send them to Ukraine. The Pentagon responded to the Polish announcement: "The prospect of fighter jets "at the disposal of the Government of the United States of America" departing from a U.S./NATO base in Germany to fly into airspace that is contested with Russia over Ukraine raises serious concerns for the entire NATO alliance. It is simply not clear to us that there is a substantive rationale for it.' Simply put, Blinken and Biden tried to bribe Poland with new upgraded replacement jets to attack Russia and begin World War III so that NATO Article 5 could be invoke. Poland refused on at least two earlier occasions in the previous two weeks. When Poland said it would fly the old MIGs to Germany and let Germany or the U.S. begin World War III, or let the US transport the MIGs to Slovakia or Romania and let Romania or Slovakia get nuked in addition to the United States, the whole duplicitous game the Biden regime was playing with the lives of people on the planet was exposed. Biden, the "leader of the free world", wanted to start World War III but didn't want to take the blame for it, and was looking a NATO ally to bribe and become the fall guy.
On March 24, 2022 Biden flew to Poland. Reports emerged that Poland was "contemplating" an incursion into Western Ukraine.
On April 5, 2022 according to the Deputy Prime Minister Jarosław Kaczynski, leader of Poland's ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party, agreements were fully reached allowing Washington to relocate its nuclear arsenals to the country in any required quantity, the German newspaper Welt am Sontag reported.
On April 28, 2022 the Polish Defense Ministry announced that there would be intensive movement of convoys with equipment in the country’s north and east from May 1, 2022 until the end of the month due to “military exercises”.
One of the development options of the Polish leadership’s plan is to create an advanced bridgehead on the territory of Moldova to promptly take control of Transnistria and deploy a “peacekeeping contingent” on the territory of the Odessa region. The Odessa command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) is ready to support a Moldovan-Polish-Romanian invasion of Transnistria under the guise of a "humanitarian" operation.
Western Ukraine annexation
On March 10, 2022 a document emerged of Poland's plan to occupy Ukraine with 9,500 soldiers and further partition the country.
Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (FIS) stated that the Polish military’s priority “combat tasks” would include the gradual seizure of control over strategic facilities in West Ukraine. Poland discussed with the Biden regime an action to “reunite” with West Ukraine. According to Warsaw's estimates, the entrenchment of the Polish military in West Ukraine would amount to a partitioning of Ukraine. On April 28, 2022 FIS spokesman Sergei Naryshkin said that Washington and Warsaw were planning to deploy a Polish “peacekeeping contingent” in the western part of Ukraine.
|“According to information received by the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service, Washington and Warsaw are working on plans to establish tight military and political control over ‘their historical possessions’ in Ukraine,”|
According to the FIS, the first stage of the “reunification” should be the introduction of Polish troops into the western regions of Ukraine under the guise of 'peacekeepers' with the participation of ‘willing states’. Warsaw has not yet been able to agree on potential participants in a ‘coalition of like-minded’,” the FIS said.
At the same time, the FIS pointed out, the Polish leadership is not interested in “unnecessary spies” in its operation. “The so-called peacekeeping contingent is planned to be deployed in those parts of Ukraine where the threat of direct clash with the Russian Armed Forces is minimal. And the priority “combat tasks” of the Polish military will include gradual interception of control over strategic objects located there from the National Guard of Ukraine. Polish special services are already searching for “agreeable” representatives of the Ukrainian elite to form a Warsaw-oriented “democratic” counterweight to the nationalists,” the FIS said in its report.
Commander-in-Chief of the Polish Armed Forces Jaroslaw Mika signed on order to bring the Polish Army into a state of full combat readiness for the invasion of western Ukraine. This document was published online by the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry. According to the Polish government’s estimates, a deployment into western Ukraine is highly likely to split the country. Warsaw will essentially gain control of the territories where Polish "peacekeepers" will enter. Essentially, it is an attempt to repeat the historical “deal” for Poland after the First World War, when the collective West, represented by the Entente, recognized Warsaw’s right first to occupy part of the Ukraine to protect its population from the “Bolshevik threat”, and then to incorporate those territories into the Polish state. The events that followed were a clear illustration of the colonial order and forced Polonization as the main methods of building a ‘Greater Poland’,” the FIS concluded.
|"I hope that Ukraine will be a brotherly state to Poland; that it will not have a border between them, that there will in fact be no border; that we will live together on this land, rebuilding ourselves and building our common happiness, our common strength."|
Other reports indicated that Zelensky and his entire cabinet had been offered UK citizenship, by-passing the ordinary process for acquiring citizenship and in preparation for a government-in-exile of a shrunken landlocked Ukrainian rump state. Writing in The American Conservative Col. Douglas Macgregor observed:
|"The war against Russia in Ukraine has evolved, but not in the way Western observers predicted. Ukrainian forces look shattered and exhausted. The supplies reaching Ukrainian troops fighting in Eastern Ukraine are a fraction of what is needed. In most cases, replacements and new weapons are destroyed long before they reach the front.
Confronted with the unambiguous failure of U.S. assistance and the influx of new weapons to rescue Ukrainian forces from certain destruction, the Biden administration is desperate to reverse the situation and save face....the Polish general staff was quietly instructed to formulate plans for intervention in the Ukrainian conflict by seizing the western part of Ukraine. Naturally, military action of this scale would require Kiev’s approval, but given Washington’s de facto control of the Zelensky government, approval for Polish military intervention should not be a problem."
Rumours emanating from inside Ukraine of another false flag chemical weapons attack to excuse a Polish alleged "peacekeeping" invasion between May 22-24 in the weeks beforehand were rampant.
Moldova has not joined European sanctions against Russia.
On April 19, 2022, Moldova banned wearing the black and orange Ribbon of St. George, established in 1769 as the highest military decoration in Czarist times, continued in the Soviet era, and reaffirmed in 1998 by Presidential decree signed by Russian Federation President Boris Yeltsin. The ribbon has come to commemorate veterans of the Eastern Front of the Second World War. Citizens interpreted banning the ribbon as pressure by the United States on the Moldovan government to exterminate any memory of Russian culture. The same day, four days before the NATO terrorist attack on Transnistria, the U.S. State Department issued a travel advisory for Moldova.
On April 29, 2022 it was reported that Israel, Bulgaria, Romania, USA, UK, France, Canada, Germany, and Russia have called on their citizens to leave Moldova and/or the Transnistria region as soon as possible. This follows an escalation in tensions in Moldova, with several explosions occurring, reports of gunfire, and a general mobilization in Transnistria which is outside of Moldovan control.
On April 12, 2022 a column of NATO military equipment was spotted in Romania moving in the direction of the border with Ukraine.
Russian sources reported that the Polish Armed Forces established a strike group on the territory of Romania. The total contingent is estimated at up to 8,000 servicemen. A consolidated contingent is planned to enter Moldovan territory under a plausible pretext, such as a humanitarian operation or an official government request.
As NATO prepared to invade Transnistria, women in the bordering city of Khust (pop. 28,000) threw stones at the Ukrainian military registration office on April 30, 2022, tried to break into the building, and demanded that their husbands and sons be returned home from the frontline.
The United States Nacy operates an Aegis Ashore missile system in Romania.
On February 28, 2022 Finland, a non-NATO country, announced they would deliver 2,500 assault rifles, 150,000 cartridges, 1,500 single-shot anti-tank weapons, and 70,000 combat ration packages to the Kyiv regime. A Kremlin spokesman said Russia would have to rebalance the situation.
In early April 2022 Finland opened negotiations to join NATO. The people of Finland were denied any right to a plebiscite over such a crucial matter. If Finland joins NATO, Russia will put nuclear weapons in Kaliningrad.
Russia warned of a "military-technical" response if Finland joined NATO - the same language Russia used to warn Ukraine against joining NATO two months before the Russian incursion into Ukraine. Turkish President Recep Erdoğan warned that "Scandinavian countries are 'guesthouses' for terrorist organizations."
On March 7, 2022 Russian state media announced that half of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) - 120,000 soldiers - were trapped in the Donbas cauldron. The Donbas cauldron was confirmed closed on March 14, 2022. By March 27, 2022, it was estimated that close to half of this force has already been killed, wounded, taken prisoner, or probably accounting for by far most, deserted and fled.
The city of Volnovakha was liberated on March 11, 2022. On March 12, 2022 the second Battle of Avdiivka, just north of Donetsk city, began. On March 15, Ukrainians counterattacked.
To free up strength for the encirclement of what remained of the Ukrainian army group in the Donbas, Russian units were partially de-blockaded and redeployed away from Sumy to the northwest and Nikolaev to the southwest. The forces redeployed from Sumy moved through Russia proper towards the Izium area. Fresh forces also were brought in through the port of Berdiansk on the Sea of Azov, where a Russian cargo ship was set on fire and sunk under unclear circumstances.
Survivors allege that Ukrainian terrorists took hostage more than 70 people who were in the Kremensk boarding school for the elderly and disabled. As a result of a fire caused by shelling from the Ukronazis, more than 50 people were burned alive. Ukrainian nationalists used employees and wards as human shields. The command decided to occupy the building. The defense was organized on the third floor. Below were people who could not move on their own. Ukrainian media reported that the orphanage was shelled by the Russian armed forces and the People's Militia. However, the survivors blame the Kyiv security forces for this.
The Ukraine’s extensive, deeply-layered defense in the Donbas was broken apart, one hedgerow or defense line at a time. Every town or village taken by DPR forces was an absolute mess of destroyed homes, sliced-up trees, abandoned trenches or bunkers, wrecked Ukrainian equipment, Ukrainian bodies, and the weapons and munitions, disorganized piles of supplies, and trash that the Ukrainians left. By March 27, 2022 DPR forces, with support from their own and Russian artillery as well as Russian airstrikes, finally broke through the painstakingly-engineered, heretofore-impenetrable first line of defense around Ukrainian-held Avdiivka.
By the time the Mariupol cauldron was boiling over on April 1, 2022 some 60,000 Ukrainian forces remained trapped, lacking fuel, in the Donbas cauldron.
On April 13, 2022 it was reported that Ukraine formed three new battalions from the Alekseevska, Kachanivska and 43rd penal colonies in Kharkiv, where those convicted of grave and especially grave crimes were kept. These new battalions are supposed to blockade Kharkiv from the southern side and by no means allow the local population to leave the city and the subsequent retreat of AFU combat units.
On May 7, 2022 six civilian vehicles with white flags mounted on them were shot at by AFU soldiers on a stretch of road between Staryi and Novyi Saltov. The photo and video footage were made by specialists from the AFU’s Centre for Information and Psychological Operations.
On May 13, 2022 Armed Forces of Ukraine shelled the civilian areas in the city of Gorlovka (pop. 240,000).
Strategic and tactical military logic would dictate that the Kyiv regime and its Western allies withdraw AFU troops slowly from the cauldron, line to line, with the task of inflicting the maximum possible losses on the advancing Russian troops and, as far as possible, maintaining the combat capability of their troops deployed in the west bank regions of the Seversky Donets river, while accumulating reserves. At the same turn, it was advisable to deploy the equipment received from NATO. But the Ukrainians did not do all this. On the contrary, Kyiv threw more and more reserves into the Donbas meat grinder, which were methodically destroyed by Russian artillery, aircraft and missile strikes.
Seversky Donets front
The cities of Severodonetsk (pop.110,000), Kramatorsk (pop. 150,000), and Slovyansk (pop. 107,000), south of the Izium front, formed the heart of the cauldron.
On April 14, 2022, sources said the Pentagon instructed the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to withdraw all the remaining artillery to the cities on the eastern front – Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhye, where they can fire behind civilians. Restraining the offensive of the Russian troops is prescribed by small mobile groups armed with mortars and anti-tank systems, moving across the steppe in civilian vehicles. There is nothing surprising in the fact that the Americans impose the use of terrorist tactics on their client state, in which the Ukrainian people are taken hostage. Ukrainian sources write about this quite openly, and treat such methods with understanding, and as the only correct one. The CIA-controlled Kyiv Independent stated that Zelensky said there are 44,000 AFU troops on the Donbas front.
By April 15, 2022 the front became more active. Fourteen hours of artillery bombardment across a two hundred mile front on April 19, 2022 sent a foreboding message.
On April 18, 2022 the NATO-controlled Ukrainian General Staff reported the number of Russian forces deployed to the Donbass were 70,000, however Pentagon disinformation specialists lowered the estimate to 60,000 so as not to demoralize Ukrainian troops and the public.
On April 20, 2022 AFU pulled out of Ribezhnoe and commenced an organized withdrawal from Severodonetsk across the Severskii Donets river into Lisichansk. The AFU launched another Tochka-U missile armed with cluster munitions against the civilian population of Donbas, killing 5 people including one child.
On April 22, 2022 reports emerged of the capture of the largest weapons depot in Ukraine by Russian forces in the Kharkiv region.
As Russian forces swept through the rural areas of Donbas, it was easy to find were the retreating AFU soldiers had established bases in villages - usually without exception in the local school building. Resistance in Popasna (pop. 20,000) was unexpectedly fierce with street to street fighting with linked underground trenches between most civilian houses. Chechen fighters and the Wagner Group took part in the fighting.
By April 29, 2022 the daily reports of the Russian Ministry of Defense noted that Ukraine was losing several hundred soldiers and some 30 armored vehicles daily, mostly to artillery. A flood of gruesome pictures posted on Telegram by both sides confirmed this. Several Ukrainian attempts to counterattack Russian forces failed. Western propagandists for the first time noted that their side was losing.
On April 30, 2022 it was reported that over 70% of buildings in Severodonetsk were hit by artillery strikes.
In early May 2022, AFU forces began withdrawing from the outskirts of Severodonetsk; reports indicated that the Russian military forces were grinding down Ukrainian ground forces by extensive use of heavy artillery. The Ukrainian artillery has either been destroyed or lacks ammunition. The Ukrainian forces have orders from the Zelensky regime to stay in their position and to hold the line, only making sure that Russian artillery strikes will destroy them. Videos of survivors of Ukrainian combat groups appeared on line accusing Ukrainian commanders of having abandoned the troops on the battlefield. Conscripts and members of the Territorial Defense militia, teenagers below draft age with no military training at all, were sent outside their home regions, in violation of their contracts, to the frontlines as cannon fodder. Captured POWs at the front said they were thrown into the meat grinder with only two days training.
On May 5 the mayor of Severodonetsk report that LPR and Russian forces began entering the city. According to LPR military officials, the AFU grouping of about 15,000-16,000 servicemen is deployed in the Severodonetsk-Lisichansk region.
On May 7, 2022 Popasana fell to the Russians. Heavy casualties were observed on both sides. Popasana sits on the high ground. The fall of Popasana cuts off the main supply line to 8,000 AFU troops in Severodonetsk. According to residents, Ukrainian tanks were deployed near residential buildings and purposefully fired at shelters where local civilians were hiding. Polish mercenaries were deployed alongside Ukrainians, shot at civilians, and would not allow people out of their houses for 4 days even to get water.
On May 11, 2022 the AFU blew up a dam near Avdiivka, endangering the lives in civilian settlements and creating a humanitarian catastrophe, in order to slow down the advance of the DPR army and the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
As of May 20, 2022 Russian VDV mobile infantry and Wagner group fighters advanced up to 15 kilometers west of Popasana and captured several towns or villages within 3 kilometers of the one paved, continuous, Ukrainian-controlled main road into Lisichansk. Without this road, there will be no meaningful resupply for, or organized evacuation of, thousands of Ukrainian servicemen in the eastern part of the north Lugansk cauldron.
By May 21, 2022 most of the AFU troops operating in Severdonetsk had been withdrawn across river to Lisichansk, leaving only 500-700. Partisan forces of Novorossiya were reported to be taking part in the fighting. An estimated 5,000-10,000 AFU troops were concentrated west of the river in Lisichansk. Some AFU units were refusing to fight after their battlefield commanders fled the field. Elite Ukrainian paratroopers began surrendering.
Since the capture of Izium in eastern Kharkiv province by the Russians in early April 2022, the civilian population of the city became the target of Grad rockets (many bearing cluster submunitions) on a daily basis by the Kyiv regime. On April 28, 2022 Russian air defense forces repelled an attack by a Ukrainian Tochka-U ballistic missile on residential areas of Izium. The target of the strike was the city hospital, where the Russian medical detachment is located providing assistance to the population of Kharkiv Region. “The Kyiv nationalist regime’s indiscriminate missile strikes on the residential areas of Izium and Kherson are a war crime and a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law,” the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement.
The optical plant at Izium, where the viewfinder for the Stugna-P anti-tank device is manufactured, was seized in early April 2022.
As a high priority in Operation Denazification, on April 11, 2022 the Russian Ministry of Defense reported that it had eliminated a notorious neo-Nazi leader 5 kilometers south of Izium. Taras Bobanich was the leader of the Lviv Pravy Sektor. Tass reported,
|"Since 2014, he had participated in the Kiev regime’s punitive operation in Donbass. He personally gave orders for bombardments of Donetsk and Lugansk residential areas from heavy artillery guns. He is guilty of the deaths of hundreds of civilians of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, including children," the ministry stressed.|
The Russians have been firing 400,000-600,000 artillery shells per day, mostly on the Izium front. The United States pledged to send 190,000 artillery shells to Ukraine, which is about how many shells the Russians fire for breakfast. Ukrainian soldiers complained of high losses, constant shelling day and night, of commanders having deserted, no treatment for the wounded, low ammunition, no sleep, and despite malfunctioning weapons, soldiers were told they were forbidden to retreat.
On May 13, 2022 Russian forces took control of the village of Dolgenkoe located 20 km to the South of Izium. The heights near the village fell under Russian control. A large grouping of the AFU was deployed in the forests nearby. After Russian servicemen entered one of the Ukrainian checkpoints, they found the corpse of a woman who had been raped and killed by Ukrainian soldiers.
Ukrainian forces blew up a tank with ammonium nitrate. According to the statement of the Russian Defense Ministry, Ukrainian nationalists under the leadership of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) blew up a fertilizer storage facility near the village of Dolgenkoe. They aimed to poison the local population and blame the Russian army for this.

Mariupol on the Sea of Azov is predominantly a Russian city. After the Maidan coup in 2014, many Ukrainian nationalist from western Ukraine and the Kharkiv region were relocated to Mariupol in the Ukrainian Ministry of the Interior's National Guard. Mariupol became the hot bed of neo-Nazi activity from 2014 to 2022 and the site of some of the most intense fighting during the Russian special denazification operation.
The Russians attempted to establish humanitarian corridors for civilians with passages west toward Kyiv and Europe, or east toward Russia. However, the first reaction by the SBU was to murder the chief Ukrainian negotiator just prior to completion on the details of the agreement with the Russians. Eventually humanitarian corridors were set up, but Ukrainian forces killed many civilians attempting to evacuate. Of those refugees who did get out, most chose to go to Russia. Red Cross relief convoys were held up by Ukrainians outside the city. Zelensky ordered Ukrainian forces in the city not to surrender, and to fight to the last Ukrainian. The neo-Nazis had desecrated memorials to the heroes of the Great Patriotic War.
The city's high rise apartment complexes, built of concrete and rebar in the Soviet era, were built with bomb shelters which residents lived in throughout the battle. Azov forces took control of upper-level apartments to use as firing points on Russian and DNR forces. On March 1, 2022, Greek City Times reported: "With Russian forces besieging Mariupol, in which 120,000+ ethnic Greeks live, SKAI news spoke with a Mr Kiouranas who lives in the city and exposed that Ukrainian “fascists” are killing people for trying to leave the city. When asked by SKAI news if he planned to leave the city, Kiouranas responded “how can I leave? When you try to leave you run the risk of running into a patrol of the Ukrainian fascists, the Azov Battalion. They would kill me and are responsible for everything.”
Encirclement of the city was complete by March 4, 2022. On March 6 units of the People's Militia of the Donetsk Republic (DPR) entered the city. The main clashes were in the west of the city and in the east. The Azov fighters and some Ukrainian regular army units took up firing positions in civilian homes and high rise apartment blocks. Advancing Russian and Donetsk forces would take fire from the homes or apartments, identify its source, and aim tank fire or other means against the given window or floor or building.
Nothing was done by the Ukrainian government to feed or evacuate the predominantly Russian-speaking civilians. The municipality was run by Ukrainians, hand selected by the Kyiv regime, unresponsive to local needs. Shortly before combat erupted, the mayor disappeared only to reappear on Zoom in Western propaganda media to tell the world what barbarians the Russians are.
Late in the afternoon of March 6, on Pobedy Avenue, the Donetsk People's Militia clashed with Ukrainian armed nationalist units. More than 150 evacuating civilians were used as human shields by Ukrainian neo-Nazis who were hiding behind them. The Ukrainian nationalists opened fire on DPR servicemen from behind the backs of civilians. As a result of the firing by Ukrainian Nazis, several civilians were wounded and killed. The People's Militia of DPR guided the remaining group of civilians through the Vinogradnoye district from Mariupol to DPR controlled territory where they received food and medical services. Similar scenarios were repeated for weeks.
Russia informed the UN Security Council that the Mariupol maternity hospital had been used by the Azov Battalion on March 7 or March 6, 2022. On March 12, 2022 Russian T-72 tanks entered the city. On March 13, Russians began evacuation of civilian women, children, and elderly from Crimea to escape shelling from Ukrainian forces in Mariupol. By March 15 the Russians deployed Chechen fighters on the streets of Mariupol. The legendary Somali Battalion also took part in the fighting.
The denazification of Mariupol was delayed more than a week when a Tochka-U missile attack by the Kyiv regime hit the city center of Donetsk, killing 23 civilians, and DPR forces were withdrawn to deal with the site where the missile had been launched from.
Like the Battle of Stalingrad, Ukrainian forces trapped in Mariupol pleaded for relief to the Kyiv central command. And like Stalingrad, the government told them reinforcement of troops and supplies was not possible and forbad them to surrender.
On March 20, 2022 when Russian forces gave Ukrainian forces a deadline till 5:00 AM (Moscow time) (2 AM GMT) on Monday, March 21 to lay down their arms in the city. Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev of the Russian Defense Management Center guaranteed that all those who lay down their arms will be provided a safe passage out of the city. He also stated that all humanitarian corridors for civilians from Mariupol to the east and, in agreement with the Ukrainian side, to the west. Mizintsev also claimed that certain Ukrainian “bandits”, “neo-Nazis” and nationalists are engaging in carrying out “mass terror” and are going on a killing spree in the city. The Ukrainian resistors laid naval mines throughout the city.
On March 23, 2022 it was reported that what remained of the Azov Battalion was pinned down by Chechen fighters in the steel plant in the eastern portion of the city. Azov, which originally consisted of about 14,000 fighters, was whittled down to about 6,000. They were cut off from NATO resupply of weapons and ammunition, without water, food, fuel or electricity. Many were either killed in Mariupol, or escaped posing as civilians through humanitarian corridors. Some dressed as women to escape. Azov fighters, like their Nazi SS forebearers, are all tattooed and easily identifiable when captured. The International Red Cross agreed to deliver humanitarian relief and investigate Ukrainian war crimes, but according to reports was held up by Ukrainian attacks on Red Cross supply trains.
On April 8, the Russians took control of the port of Mariupol. All hostages, including foreigners, were released. The Ukrainians had mined the harbor. The Russian Ministry of Defense reported that radio intercepts showed a significant number of foreign mercenaries carried out communications in six other European languages. It was estimated there were at least about 100 foreign fighters. The ministry spokesman stressed that the forces trapped in Mariupol are not the celebrated "defenders of so-called European values, but foreign mercenaries, who have come here to kill Slavs for American dollars while hiding behind a human shield of civilians."
By April 10, 2022, virtually all the civilian residential neighborhoods had been cleared and all the fighting was confined within the industrial zone.
On April 16, 2022 the Russian Ministry of Defense announced the liberation of residential areas and summarized the situation in Mariupol:
|"The entire urban area of Mariupol is completely cleared of militants of the Nazi formation "Azov", foreign mercenaries and Ukrainian troops. The remnants of the Ukrainian group are currently completely blocked on the territory of the Azovstal metallurgical plant. Their only chance to save their lives is to voluntarily lay down their arms and surrender.
On April 21, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed Gen. Sergey Shoigu to halt the storming of Azovstal, apparently shifting to a strategy of starving out the encircled remaining holdouts. It was thought that about 1,400 Ukrainian fighters and foreign mercenaries, along with dozens of NATO officers, civilian families of the fighters and possibly some civilian hostages were still holed up in the bunkers. The Azov regiment apparently had stockpiled enough food and drinking for a lengthy holdout. The Russians did not cut internet access. More than 142,000 civilians had been evacuated from the city. Gen Shoigu declared victory in the battle. An estimated 9,000-10,000 Ukrainian forces and mercenaries had been killed in the battle.
The Azov neo-Nazis at Azovstal in Mariupol were the best-equipped unit of the Ukrainian armed services. In the end they were totally outmatched by a numerically inferior Russian/Chechen Spetsnaz contingent, and in record time for such a big city. On May 17, 2022 all fighting in Mariupol and within the confines of the massive Azovstal steel plant came to an end with the surrender of the last holdouts.
US biological labs in Mariupol
Evidence of emergency destruction of documents confirming work with the US military establishment in two biolaboratories in Mariupol was obtained. A preliminary analysis of extant documentation indicated the use of Mariupol as a regional center for cholera pathogen collection and certification. The selected strains were sent to the Public Health Centre in Kyiv, which was responsible for the onward shipment of biomaterials to the United States. These activities were carried out since 2014, as evidenced by the transfer of strains.
An act of destruction of the pathogen collection dated February 25, 2022, according to which cholera, tularemia and anthrax pathogens were handled there, was found in the sanitary and epidemiological laboratory. Part of the collection of the veterinary laboratory was not destroyed in a hurry. The presence in the collection of pathogens that are uncharacteristic of veterinary medicine, such as typhoid, paratyphoid fever and gas gangrene, is a cause for concern. This could indicate the laboratory's misuse and involvement in a military biological program.
Ukrainian use of civilian human shields
According to the testimony of civilian survivors, Azov Nazis shot civilians attempting to flee Mariupol. One civilian survivor testified that Ukrainian forces shot up whole "busloads" of fleeing civilians. In a YouTube broadcast from AZOV Media, Ukrainian Nazis admitted they use civilians as human shields:.
|""In total, as of this hour, over the past day, the irrevocable losses of horde barbarians reached up to 50 people of infantry, 2 tanks, 2 armored personnel carriers, 1 MTLB and one armored personnel carrier they left on the battlefield. Several trucks were also destroyed. The land component of the enemy horde suffers heavy losses. These savages distribute white armbands to civilians, thereby making it harder for our military to work. But believe me, orcas, we understand where you are and where are the civilians!" |
In the so-called 'Bucha massacre,' all the dead bodies, or at least those bodies which were not crisis actors, had white armbands.
Mariupol residents accused Americans of training Azov fighters to fight near houses in residential areas causing interminable suffering and damage. Survivors also testified that AZOV went about the city in civilian dress without uniforms.
On the morning of March 30, 2022 Ukrainian troops told residents to go to Mariupol school #37 and there they would be safe; in the evening the school was shelled and destroyed.
On April 18, 2022 the "Azovstal CHOP", as they were nicknamed by the militias, began broadcasting videos of family members of Azov fighters in the Azovstal bunker. Reports On April 19, one hundred forty civilian were liberated from Azovstal. These were not the civilians who were allegedly held hostage, but people who lived near the facility. On April 30, 2022, twenty-five civilians including 6 children escaped Azovstal through humanitarian corridors provided by the Russians.
On April 21, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed Gen. Sergey Shoigu to halt the storming of Azovstal, apparently shifting to a strategy of starving out the encircled remaining holdouts. It was thought that about 1,400 Ukrainian fighters and foreign mercenaries, along with dozens of NATO officers, civilian families of the fighters and possibly some civilian hostages were still holed up in the bunkers. The Azov regiment apparently had stockpiled enough food and drinking for a lengthy holdout. The Russians did not cut internet access. More than 142,000 civilians had been evacuated from the city. Gen Shoigu declared victory in the battle. An estimated 9,000-10,000 Ukrainian forces and mercenaries had been killed in the battle.
As of May 9, 2022, roughly 1,000 people, civilian and military, were reported to have been evacuated from Azovstal under the plan negotiated by UN General Secretary António Guterres and evacuations ended, leaving about 500 deadenders in the bunkers below. Humanitarian corridors were closed. RT reported over 300 more Azovstal holdouts surrendered on May 15.
On May 16, 2022 all fighting within the confines of the massive Azovstal steel plant came to an end when the remaining Azov fighters asked to surrender. They had ran out of food a week earlier. With help from Russian soldiers, the Azov fighters first had to de-mine booby traps that had been set up leading from the exit. Mass unconditional surrenders began, taking 3 full days to process. 55 seriously wounded (ambulatory) were taken immediately east to the Novoazovsk hospital in the Donetsk Republic Another 221 people the first day were sent north to the Elenovka POW camp in the Donetsk Republic. Searches, screenings, and preliminary interrogations to look for Nazis were conducted. A tattoo can make the difference between the status of regular POW and accused war criminal, especially if it’s a swastika or other Nazi insignia. Russian war correspondent Dmitry Steshin who was at the surrender for its entirety, recorded this:
|"Steshin is accompanied by a DPR soldier named Vlad, who hails from Poltava. They have been inseparable for the past 3 months on the road. Vlad was filled with hatred against these Ukrainian Nazis, and wanted revenge. But now something is happening to him: At the sight of the captives, his hatred and anger start to melt away, and he becomes calmer. Steshin philosophizes about the “Russian soul”, and how this effect works: At the sight of a conquered enemy, the Russian rage wilts, then compassion becomes more dominant within the psyche. To be sure, these Nazis will be put on trial for their crimes. But it is not the Russian way to carry out battlefield justice."|
In Elenovka, interrogation of Ukrainian prisoners of war, some of whom have open criminal cases (e.g., for abuse/torture or killing of civilians, or of rebel captives) for years in Russia. Among the Ukrainian military who surrendered, 144 people are fighters of the Interior Ministry's National Guard, of which the Azov Battalion is part. The Kremlin reportedly refused to exchange Nazi members of the Azov regiment as they committed numerous war crimes. The exchange of other servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine could be negotiated. The Russian state Duma, however immediately began debate on a bill forbidding the exchange of any POWs captured at Azovstal for fear of a demoralizing effect on the public and soldiers.
Steshin noted the prevailing attitude among the captive Ukrainian soldiers: "One conclusion they are all reaching is this: The Kiev regime has no use for them any more." The psychotic, delusional Presidential adviser to Zelensky, Mykhailo Podoliak, posted on Twitter:
|"83 days of Mariupol defense will go down in history as the Thermopylae of the XXI century. “Azovstal” defenders ruined 🇷🇺’s plan to capture the east of 🇺🇦, took a hit on themselves and proved the real "combat capability" of 🇷🇺… This completely changed the course of the war."|
Steshin reported on a conversation between Vlad and some Azovites:
|"Nazar is the only person in the whole group of captives who speaks in pure Ukrainian dialect. He is from Lvov. He overhears Steshin chatting with Vlad and philosophizing, how this all came about. Nazar butts into the conversation and says, in Ukrainian dialect: “People were pitted against people.” Ukrainian Dmytro objects to this: He says he is from Mariupol, and he says that people were getting used to the new life (under Maidan rules). Vlad objects angrily: “I am from Poltava, I had to leave my home in 2014, because I understood that it was impossible to live under the new rules. We all spoke Russian, and they started to forbid the Russian language, they passed a lot of laws…”
Dmytro exhales: “Yeah…” But then quickly collects himself and dives into the political debate: “All the same, these were our internal, Ukrainian affairs. Why did Russia have to stick its nose in?”
Vlad retorts angrily: “You wanted them to just kill us all, with nobody intervening? You have Europe and the U.S. behind you, so we have Russia behind us. Does that seem normal to you? Is it normal to waste your youth fighting in a war?”
Dmytro: “I have also been fighting since 2014. I also wasted my youth in this.”
Vlad [getting curious]: “Really? Whereabouts were you fighting?”
Steshin leaves these two soldiers to their reminiscing, noting that they kept up their conversation for at least an hour.
Steshin and Vlad collect their gear and leave the scene. Vlad reveals, surprisingly, “You know. when this war is over, I would be happy to go out with Dmytro and have a drink with him.”
“You forgive them?”
“No. But I like him. We had a lot of things to talk about.”
“What about him do you like?”
“Well, he was the only one of them who didn’t pretend to be a cook. He was honest with me. He is a worthy adversary.”
On May 18, 2022, the total number of surrenders rose to 959. It was previously thought to be about 1,700 holdouts until the end. DPR leader Denis Pushilin told journalists, “A court will rule on the fate of Ukrainian militants who surrendered at Mariupol’s Azovstal plant…As for war criminals and those who are nationalists, if they laid down their arms their fate should be decided by the court. Regardless of the emotions of some people, I heard various opinions, if an adversary laid down the arms, the future fate is decided by the court. If this is a Nazi criminal, then by a court martial"
The total number of unconditional surrenders since Monday, May 16, 2022 cascaded to 2,439 by May 20, more captures than were taken in the two major battles of Ilovaisk and Debaltseve combined in 2014 and 2015 during the earlier Donbas war. This figure included at least 717 Azov fighters.
Commenting on the defeat, Jacob Dreizen said:
|"Now, everyone understands, if you are surrounded by Russia, you have two options: Surrender. Or death. That’s it. There will be no de-blockade, the Pope won’t ride to the rescue, and Russia doesn’t care what its NATO enemies think. This is a huge psychological shift, comparable to what happened to the Germans after Stalingrad.
After Stalingrad, the Germans, if faced with an imminent risk of encirclement, with very few exceptions, ran the hell away (or tried to.) And, the Ukrainian army, despite all the “Iron Cross” emblems on its hardware, is no Wehrmacht. This bodes ill for the Ukraine’s attempt to hold and defend the Severodonetsk-Lisichansk agglomeration in northern Lugansk—a hard-core Russian loyalist area, and likely the next big “cauldron.” Those two cities combined, are roughly half the size of Mariupol. Russian and Lugansk/Donetsk forces moving in on them, will be more numerous, and (by now) much more experienced than the forces that took Mariupol."
Russia does not have capital punishment. While some of the AFU regulars may be released once the conflict is declared over, which may take years given the United States declared intention to fund sabotage activity and a partisan insurgency after the AFU surrenders and the country is fully "demilitarized," Azov Nazis are looking at "busting rocks north of the Arctic Circle until the year 2040 or 2050," in the words of Jacob Dreizen.
On May 16, 2022 the Ukraine General Staff requested a counter-attack along the Zaporozhye line no matter what the cost. They launched a counter attack with of battalion strength in an attempt to push back the Russian attack. However, the Ukrainians were not prepared. Even worse, on open ground. Ukrainian forces lost two MLRS systems, 40 vehicles, 26 tanks, 12 IFVS destroyed and 300 Ukrainian casualties. One of the Ukrainian tanks destroyed destroyed was a Polish built T-72M recently sent to Ukraine.
Some dispute existed between analysts and observers whether Russian war planners intended an encirclement of Odessa. After 31 days of fighting, no serious efforts appeared to have taken place.
General Dmytro Marchenko, who is in charge of the garrison in Mykolaiv, vowed that for each Ukrainian who dies, he and his men will kill ten Russians and warned that any attacking troops will end up as food for stray dogs in the streets.
On April 13, 2022, a Russian Ministry of Defense spokesman said,
|"We have seen attempts at sabotage and attacks by the Ukrainian military against facilities in Russian territory. If such attempts continue, the Russian Federation’s Armed Forces will strike at the decision-making centers, including Kiev – something we have so far refrained from."|
This was interpreted to mean Ukrainian attacks or provocations on Crimea, which was accepted into the Russian Federation in 2014 by a vote of the Russian State Duma after a popular plebiscite in Crimea overwhelmingly made the request, could result in missile attacks on military and political command centers in Kyiv. NATO would like to occupy the deep water port of Sevastopol, which has been a major objective of NATO's actions in Ukraine since 2008. On February 19, 2022, five days before the Special Military Operation in Ukraine began, the Atlantic Council published a paper which had been long in the works entitled, NATO must seize the current strategic opportunity in the Black Sea. On April 14, 2022, The Washington Examiner reported members of Congress asked the U.S. intelligence community specifically to aid Ukraine if it made efforts against Crimea.
On April 23, 2022 fascist dictator Volodymyr Zelensky said that Odessa may become “another Mariupol” soon. The AFU was accumulating forces for the defense of the city and providing the supply of weapons from Romania and fuel from Moldova to the troops in the Mykolaiv and Krivoy Rog regions. Russian missile strikes targeted AFU military infrastructure facilities. Russian servicemen struck a military airfield near Odessa. According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, a large batch of weapons from the United States and the EU was destroyed.
To marr Moscow's May 9 Victory Day celebrations in commemoration of the 77th Anniversary of the defeat of the Banderite's Western allies, Nazi Germany, the Kyiv regime in conjunction with US and NATO war planners attempted a massive assault to retake Snake Island. The offensive failed, with more than 60 AFU forces dead, the loss of 4 bombers, 10 helicopters, 3 amphibious assault ships, and at least 30 Bayraktar drones. Sources say an American and UK high-ranking officers went missing after the attack. An American marine lieutenant colonel and an English major from the commando brigade of the marine corps, landed on Snake Island together with Ukrainian fighters. They coordinated the work of NATO intelligence assets and the Ukrainian landing forces. Russian missiles also destroyed a massive NATO ammunition dump housed in a civilian infrastructure shopping mall in Odessa.
When the Russians initially entered Kherson, they did not take down Ukrainian flags, replace the mayor, or interfere with the running of city government. The Kyiv regime issued nationwide decrees that any cooperation with the Russian military (including accepting humanitarian aid) was collaboration and treasonous activity. The SBU's reprisal actions against Ukrainian citizens in areas that the Russian military vacated, the Russian military restored the World War II war memorial in Kherson and introduced the Rubel to replace Ukrainian currency.
By the end of March 2022, the AFU became more active in the Mykolaiv region. After an unsuccessful counteroffensive towards the Kherson Peoples Republic, Ukrainian forces opened massive fire from MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket System) and artillery on two villages near Kherson, and destroyed civilian houses. The Russians repelled the attack with precise strikes. A NATO backed partisan militia group was organized in Kherson and surrounding regions to carry out terrorist attacks against Russians and civilians. The Kherson Peoples Republic was then organized. Pensions were restored to all citizens.
In late April 2022, the Kyiv regime began shelling the civilian population of Kherson. Overnight on April 28, 2022 the AFU launched a massive missile strike with Tochka-U ballistic missiles and high-powered multiple rocket launchers on the city center of Kherson. The target of the missile attack on Kherson were residential areas where kindergartens, schools and many social institutions are located.
From an area of private houses in Belaya Krinitsa, Kherson region, the Ukrainian armed forces’ artillery struck several positions of the Russian Armed Forces in order to provoke retaliatory fire on residential buildings with civilians, whom the territorial defence fighters are not letting out of the blockaded settlement by holding them as a “human shield”. A Norwegian media representatives was standy by in Belaya Krinitsa for photo ops and video of allegedly indiscriminate Russian shelling.
On May 15, 2022 Kherson authorities urged residents not to be intimidated by the fascist forces of Ukraine' security service and assured that the Russian army would protect the local population. “Do not be afraid, the Russian army will protect us, because every day, every hour, every second, at the cost of his own life, a Russian soldier protects the peace in Kherson, because we do not abandon our own,” Stremousov wrote. Stremousov stressed that for the past month and a half he has been receiving messages from the residents of Kherson that a 15,000-strong group of the Ukrainian army is concentrated near the borders of the region, which is preparing for an offensive. “I will make every effort to close the information attack of fear from Nazi propaganda,” Stremousov emphasized.
Security Service of Ukraine (SBU)
In a state of martial law, Ukrainian civilians have been taped or tied to trees and street poles, abused and humiliated by the Territorial Defense under the Ministry of Interior and Security Service of Ukraine (SBU). The victims usually are Russians, Russian-speakers, Gypsies, or petty offenders. Elderly women and children have been subjected to this abuse.
In Luhansk, a former sausage factory converted into a torture facility in 2014 was liberated in May 2022.
Atrocities committed against civilians
Joe Lauria of Consortium News reported that on March 30, 2022, according to the Russian Defense Ministry, all Russian forces left Bucha. This was confirmed on March 31 Bucha mayor Anatolii Fedoruk in a video on the Bucha City Council official Facebook page. The translated post accompanying the video says:
|“March 31 – the day of the liberation of Bucha. This was announced by Bucha Mayor Anatolii Fedoruk. This day will go down in the glorious history of Bucha and the entire Bucha community as a day of liberation by the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the Russian occupiers."|
There was no mention of a massacre of hundreds of civilians littering the streets. Evidence of crimes appeared only on the fourth day after the Security Service of Ukraine and representatives of Ukrainian media arrived in the town.
The New York Times was in Bucha on April 2, 2022 and did not report a massacre. Instead, the Times confirmed the Russian withdrawal was completed two days after the mayor of Bucha said it was, and that the Russians left “behind them dead soldiers and burned vehicles, according to witnesses, Ukrainian officials, satellite images and military analysts.” The Times said reporters found the bodies of six civilians. “It was unclear under what circumstances they had died, but the discarded packaging of a Russian military ration was lying beside one man who had been shot in the head,” the paper said. In Bucha, the Times was close to the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion, whose soldiers appear in the newspaper’s photographs. The Times suggests that Azov Nazis may be responsible for the killings:
|“Something very interesting then happens on [Saturday] 2 April, hours before a massacre is brought to the attention of the national and international media. The US and EU-funded Gorshenin Institute online [Ukrainian language] site Left Bank announced that:
The Russian military has by now completely left the city, so this sounds for all the world like reprisals. The state authorities would be going through the city searching for ‘saboteurs’ and ‘accomplices of Russian forces.’ Only the day before [Friday], Ekaterina Ukraintsiva, representing the town council authority, appeared on an information video on the Bucha Live Telegram page wearing military fatigues and seated in front of a Ukrainian flag to announce ‘the cleansing of the city.’ She informed residents that the arrival of the Azov battalion did not mean that liberation was complete (but it was, the Russians had fully withdrawn), and that a ‘complete sweep’ had to be performed.”
According to War On Fakes, "the first unit of the Ukrainian armed forces to enter Bucha was the special forces of the National Guard of Ukraine. The official Telegram channel of the National Guard posted a video, filmed by the fighters of this detachment themselves. We can see on this video that the Ukrainian military calmly pass through the streets of the city—and no ‘mountains of corpses’ are visible on these streets.” War On Fakes then asks, “So where did the corpses on the streets of Bucha come from. And who are these people? The answer may lie in the video of the territorial defense of Ukraine, which clearly states the question ‘Can I shoot at them if there are no blue armbands?’ To which a positive response follows. The video was originally posted by the leader of the territorial defense Sergey ‘Botsman’ Korotkikh.” Sergey ‘Botsman’ Korotkikh later makes startling postings about the disappearance of Chilean/American journalist Gonzalo Lira from Kharkiv
On April 3, 2022 when the story broke, Russia immediately requested a meeting if the UN Security Council for the following Monday, April. The United Kingdom, another permanent member of the Security Council, vetoed holding a Security Council meeting in the matter. Russian UN Ambassador said in a statement:
|"London shows clearly what does the so-called new world order looks like, the order based on rules and based, it seems, on violation of all possible and impossible norms of international law, treaties and any norms of civilized behavior at all."|
Former leader of the Socialist Party of Ukraine, Ilya Kiva said that the story in Bucha was planned and prepared in advance by the counterintelligence of Ukraine, with the assistance of the British MI6. Kiva said,
|"The whole story in Bucha was prepared and planned in advance by the SBU and MI6. They arrived early in the morning, cordoned off the area, scattered the corpses and then sent journalists there. That's why that clown Zelensky even came back. To raise the interest of the international press in the alleged tragedy, but it's all a pure fake. Why didn't such a situation take place in other areas? Don`t you understand that it was staged in advance, which was supposed to arouse the aggression and hatred in you first of all. But it didn't happen."|
All the corpses wore white arm bands which were distributed by the Russian military to identify civilian non-combatants, who then became the victims of Ukrainian security forces as collaborators in reprisal actions. Some alleged corpses sat up after television cameras filmed them. Ukrainian television showed footage of Ukrainian security forces dragging corpses into place for the TV cameras.
Kidnappings, murder, assassination
Dan Cohen, the Washington DC correspondent for Behind The Headlines reported on the testimony of a former prisoner of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) under the pseudonym “Igor,” as follows:
|"Inside the sports complex-turned temporary torture prison, Igor says the sack over his head was replaced with a blindfold, leaving him so he could only see his legs.
A Ukrainian businessman who had long worked in transportation logistics – including stints in Moscow – a story typical of many Ukrainians, since returning to Kiev, Igor had maintained business ties to Moscow and Crimea, which had joined the Russian Federation after a successful referendum in 2014.
Several family members, including his mother, live in Russia and he regularly visited them until relations between the two countries reached a boiling point in 2021. “With the conflict between Russia and Ukraine and the events of February 24, my mother started to call me very often because she was very afraid of my status,” he told me.
Territorial Defense began to round up anyone suspected of sympathizing with Russia, as well as Ukrainians with cross-border ties, whether family or business.
Inside the makeshift prison, Igor says he identified 25 to 30 distinct voices of imprisoned men, and saw 10 to 12 men in Russian military uniforms, what he believes were prisoners of war. Two of the Russians were severely beaten in order to motivate the others to give on-camera testimony about their hate for Putin and opposition to the war.
Other detainees were religious people known for assembling at military installations to pray for peace and homeless people who had no way to abide by the evening curfew and were swept up by nighttime patrols.
While many of those inside the complex were kept for a couple of hours and released, others were severely beaten. “It was like a small Guantanamo,” Igor recalled.
Igor says that he was interrogated three times, with each session lasting between 15 and 30 minutes. The beatings were carried out by Territorial Defense volunteers while SBU officers instructed them on how to torture and asked him questions.
“They used a lighter to heat up a needle, then put it under my fingernails,” he told me. “The worst was when they put a plastic bag over my head and suffocated me and when they held the muzzle of a Kalashnikov rifle to my head and forced me to answer their questions.
But he says the suffering he endured was minor in comparison to the torture of the Russian prisoners of war, who were beaten with metal pipes while the Ukrainian national anthem played on repeat in the background. “I could hear it because all the torture was done in a nearby room. It was psychologically severe. This was done at night, the sounds of beatings were constant. It was difficult to sleep.”
Listening to conversations of other prisoners, Igor understood that two prisoners from Belarus were beaten to death, identifying one as a man named Sergey. …
When SBU agents found videos of [Anatoly Shariy] on Igor’s phone, officers from a separate department were called in. From then on, they began to treat him better, removing his handcuffs and giving him larger quantities of food. …
“As far as I understood, based on the information that I had to convey, the liquidation of Anatoly Shariy was being prepared, since he poses a danger to the government of Ukraine and criticizes the actions of the SBU, the government, and President Zelensky,” he told me.
On March 24, 2022 Mayor Hennadiy Matsegora of Kupyansk in the Kharkiv region, who was accused by the Kyiv regime of treason for allowing Russian troops to enter the city, recorded a video message to Ukrainian dictator Volodymyr Zelensky about the abduction and hostage taking of his daughter by SBU gestapo officers and asked for her release.
On April 15, 2022 the Zelensky regime gestapo abducted YouTube reporter Gonzalo Lira. Tweets from the account of the notorious Ukrainian Nazi Sergei “Botsman” Korotkikh, who is deeply implicated in the Bucha massacre, say Gonzalo Lira had been kidnapped, tortured and possibly beheaded.
Ukrainian hostage taking and use of human shields
The Washington Post reported on March 28, 2022 that the Ukrainian military has “a responsibility under international law to remove their forces and equipment from civilian-populated areas, and if that is not possible, to move civilians out of those areas. If they don’t do that, that is a violation of the laws of war because what they are doing is they are putting civilians at risk. All that military equipment are legitimate targets. Andriy Kovalyov, a spokesman for the Ministry of Defense's Territorial Defense, whose forces and equipment are positioned in Kyiv, scoffed at that reasoning. Alexei Arestovich, senior adviser to Volodymyr Zelensky, told the Post that "international humanitarian laws or the laws of war don’t apply in this conflict." In response to written questions from The Post, Arestovich said the country’s military doctrine, approved by parliament, provides for the principle of “total defense.” Nonetheless, with full knowledge the government of Ukraine was committing war crimes and endangering the lives of civilians, the US and NATO continued to supply Ukraine with weapons.
Tass reported that on May 5, 2022 Russian UN Ambassador Vasily Nebenzya presented to the Security Council video interviews of Ukrainian civilians who had managed to escape from the zone of hostilities. Nebenzya stressed that the Ukrainian authorities and their Western sponsors were doing their utmost to prevent this sad truth from coming under the spotlight, and asked his foreign counterparts to pay due attention to the fact that the Ukrainian army repeatedly deployed heavy weapons to residential areas and used civilians as a human shield, which was a violation of international humanitarian law. Nebenzya stated, “We have enough reasons to believe that all these principles are systematically violated by the Ukrainian army and paramilitaries…There are many eye-witness accounts of how the Ukrainian army uses civilians as hostages and a human shield”.
On May 16, 2022 at 1:35 p.m. local time, the special services of Ukraine blew up a land mine reinforced with an overlay of up to 1 ton of ammonium nitrate in the area of Mazanovka in the Donetsk People’s Republic, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported. As a result of the explosion, a poisonous cloud of about 1 kilometer headed towards the town of Kramatorsk which is under the control of Kyiv’s forces. The doctrine of “total defense” proclaimed by Kyiv officials as noted by The Washington Post on March 28, 2022, supposes that any sacrifice, including the lives, health and safety of a large number of civilians, is nothing if the AFU actions may harm Russian soldiers, even if just potentially.
Ukrainian mistreatment of POWs and war crimes
- See also: Abu Ghraib
The Kyiv government paraded captured Russian prisoners of war before television cameras and posted videos on social media. Some prisoners had injuries, were being interrogated, or were crying before the cameras. Amnesty International issued a statement reminding the fascist regime that Article 13 of the Geneva Convention states: “Prisoners of war must at all times be protected, particularly against acts of violence or intimidation and against insults and public curiosity”. According to the International Committee of the Red Cross, this includes circulating images on social media.
Gennadiy Druzenko, a Fulbright-Kennan Institute Research Scholar at the Kennan Institute and fellow at the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C., head of the Center for Constitutional Design, a former researcher at the Center for Constitutional Democracy at Indiana University, and served as the Government Commissioner for Ethno-National Policy in the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine who now operates a war-zone mobile hospital in eastern Ukraine told a Ukrainian Channel 24 TV interviewer that he had instructed his doctors to castrate captured Russian POWs. Druzenko said:
|"I have always been a great humanist and said that if a man is wounded, he is no longer an enemy but a patient. But now [I gave] very strict orders to castrate all [captured Russian] men, because they are cockroaches, not people."|
Since 2014 when the Kyiv regime initiated the Donbas war against Russian civilians, some 500 doctors have worked with Druzenko's mobile hospital. In March 2022 a pro-Ukrainian Telegram channel called White Lives Matter released a video of a Ukrainian soldier calling the fiancee of a Russian POW, taunting her with promises to castrate the captive. 
Ukrainian soldiers' used of the cellphones of dead Russian soldiers to mock and hector their relatives. In fact, the Ukrainian government has begun using facial recognition technology from Clearview AI, a US tech company, to identify Russian casualties and taunt their relatives on social media. The facial recognition service is provided by Clearview to the Kyiv regime free of charge.
On March 27, 2022 very disturbing videos emerged of mistreatment of Russian POWs by Armed Forces of Ukraine. One video shows Russian soldiers with canvas bags over their heads and then beaten in the face with rifle butts. The prisoners are shot in the kneecaps and genitals, and they are left on the ground to bleed to death. Several vans then arrive at the Ukraine military compound in Kharkiv, and as each POW is removed from the van they are shot in the knees. A second video shows Russian POW’s lying face down in a paved courtyard, or compound, and then being shot in the knees from the rear. On May 1,2022 Sergey Velichko (call sign "Chili") was captured by Russian forces and confessed to the war crime.
The notorious Kraken special forces unit of the Azov nationalist regiment are particularly well known for openly conducting safaris for civilians with a pro-Russian position in the Kharkiv region.
Reporters stood idly by while POWs were paraded and beaten in public which went unreported in Western media.
|"There, on the spot I saw war crimes. I saw a lot of war crimes. The only crimes I saw during the days I was there were perpetrated by Ukrainian forces...I saw Russian soldiers who were taken prisoner, bound and badly beaten…They were brought [to a detention area] in groups of three or four in minibuses. Every soldier exiting the minibus received a bullet from a Kalashnikov rifle in the knee…Those who admitted that they were officers got shot in the head...When I returned to France, I was extremely shocked by what the people who were invited on the TV shows were saying. A chasm exists between what I see and hear on TV and what I saw on the spot. For me it’s abominable...It shocks me enormously that Europe still gives weapons to a force which in my view are neo-Nazis, who have neo-Nazi insignia. We don’t talk about it. It’s an SS insignia brandished across Ukraine, everywhere...No one in Ukraine seems concerned about this, while we arm them with European weapons. They go off and commit war crimes, I saw this myself."|
On May 6, 2022 Lucas Leiroz, researcher in Social Sciences at the Rural Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and a geopolitical consultant, wrote about the evidence of similarities between known CIA torture techniques and torture techniques documented to have been used by neo-Nazis in Ukrainine.

US-backed Nazi insurgency
Yahoo News reported on January 13, 2022:
|"The CIA is overseeing a secret intensive training program in the U.S. for elite Ukrainian special operations forces and other intelligence personnel, according to five former intelligence and national security officials familiar with the initiative. The program, which started in 2015, is based at an undisclosed facility in the Southern U.S., according to some of those officials.
The program has involved ‘very specific training on skills that would enhance’ the Ukrainians’ ‘ability to push back against the Russians,’ said the former senior intelligence official.
The training, which has included ‘tactical stuff,’ is ‘going to start looking pretty offensive if Russians invade Ukraine,’ said the former official.
One person familiar with the program put it more bluntly. ‘The United States is training an insurgency,’ said a former CIA official, adding that the program has taught the Ukrainians how ‘to kill Russians.’”
Kherson had been the first city to fall in the incursion. The first commemoration of the city's liberation from Nazism in 1944 was held since the Maidan coup. The eternal flame to the victims of Nazism and the soldiers who died liberating the city was relit.
By early March, 2022 partisan activity was reported in Kherson. NATO trained Ukrainian partisan militias and military units to use civilian vehicles to infiltrate and strike behind Russian units with mortar attacks and call in targeted artillery strikes.
Kyrylo Budanov, the head of Ukrainian military intelligence, vowed a guerrilla insurgency after the devasting defeat of Armed Forces of Ukraine on the battlefield.
The United States flooded Ukraine with billions of dollars of sophisticated weaponry, with some of those arms ending up in the hands of actual neo-Nazi battalions integrated into the Ukrainian government and military. The New York Times admitted that “C.I.A. officers are helping to ensure that crates of weapons are delivered into the hands of vetted Ukrainian military units." By definition, the U.S. is waging a proxy war against Russia, using Ukrainians as their instrument, with the goal of not ending the war but prolonging it, making the United States a cobelligerent.
On March 8, 2022, the U.S. Congress approved a $14 billion aid package for Ukraine - nearly equal to 10% of Ukrainian GDP before its loss of territory and population - insuring and funding an insurgency long past the Ukrainian military's defeat in the field by Russian forces.
On May 19, 2022, trials of Ukrainian Nazis and war criminals were underway at Leninsky District Court of Rostov-on-Don in the Russian Federation. Denis Nuryga, an Aidar Battalion militant, was the first to appear before the court. He was accused of blowing up a bridge in the Lugansk region in 2019, as a result of which sentries of the People's Militia of the LPR were killed. Nuryga, a junior sergeant captured in April 2022, said under interrogation that the Ukrainian army disguises itself as doctors and uses ambulances for movement. Inside the ambulance Ukrainians install mortars.
|"I saw a case in the village of Yuzhny, when they arrived by ambulance, people came out, thinking that the doctors came to provide medical care, wanted to ask them for medicines. And they began to shoot up first from automatic weapons to disperse the civilian population. And then they set up a mortar, fired a couple of shots, got into an ambulance and left.”|

On May 8, 2022 in Warsaw, a group of intoxicated Ukrainians were harassing a young woman. A Polish man intervened on her behalf and was beaten to death. Polish citizens questioned why the media covered up the nationality of the suspects when they clearly spoke Ukrainian on the video of the killing.
Refugees who drove to Germany were granted temporary asylum and received 4,000 euros per month for the first two months; the third month they were notified that because they had an asset, a car, they needed to sell their cars to reimburse the state for the government assistance they had recieved.

Anti-Russian sanctions did not strengthen, but, on the contrary, undermined the global dominance of the United States and the EU, which the rest of the world began to treat with distrust and apprehension. They dramatically accelerated the transition to a new world economic order and the shift of the center of the world economy away from the West. Three months after the incursion began and sanctions imposed on Russia, the Russian Ruble strengthened from 80 to the dollar to 58.5, more than a 25% rise. The Ruble strengthened even more against the euro. Russia profited from the American and EU sanctions, while the United States and the EU shot itself in the foot under the discombobulated and mistaken notion that they could take Russia down economically, convince the Russian people to rise up, storm the Kremlin, and force Vladimir Putin to resign.
By the first week of May 2022, gas prices for civilian vehicles in Ukraine hit over $12 per gallon, and consumers were limited to 2.5 gals. Deisel fuel for non-military consumption was non-existent, and rail traffic virtually came to a halt, affecting the delivery of food and gasoline.

A clear democratic majority of planet Earth does not support NATO's war on Russia. The two most populous countries on the planet, India and China, are not opposing Russia. Most of Africa is not condemning Russia. Similarly, the Arab and Muslim world has not condemned Russia. Only traditional US allies support America's efforts to overthrow the legitimate government of Russia, and many of them are seriously divided on the issue.
In their drive to stoke hostilities between the West and Russia, corporate media ignored the fact that the U.S. and NATO forces have been supporting openly Neo-Nazi paramilitaries in Ukraine for many years. A MintPress study of the op-ed pages of The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal found that only one of 91 articles published in January 2022 mentioned this connection at all, with far more asserting that Vladimir Putin himself is Hitler incarnate. Around 90% of opinion columns pushed a “get tough on Russia” message, with anti-war voices few and far between. “People who take at face value the Western media coverage would have a very distorted perception of the Ukraine conflict and its origin,” Ivan Katchanovski, Professor of Political Studies at the University of Ottawa, told MintPress, adding:
|"They omit or deny that there is a civil war in Donbas even though the majority of scholars who [have] published or presented concerning this conflict in Western academic venues classify it as a civil war with Russian military intervention. The Western media also omitted that recent ‘unity marches’ in Kharkiv and Kyiv and a staged training of civilians, including a grandmother, were organized and led by the far right, in particular, the Neo-Nazi Azov [Battalion].”|
Virtually all the fake news stories came from the mouth of Volodymyr Zelensky. In the United Nations, though two votes were mostly symbolic and watered down, the number of nations voting with the US fell from a majority of 141 to a less-than-majority of 93 in just a matter of weeks, revealing how the propaganda war faltered outside of Western media markets. At least 150 Western-based global communications firms participated in creating and spreading propaganda for the Kyiv regime, using exclusively the Kyiv regime reporting since the beginning of hostilities. Throughout the conflict, Ukrainian news crews repeatedly passed off to Ukrainian audiences and the world at large, destroyed Ukrainian equipment and the bodies of dead Ukrainian soldiers as being Russian.
On May 16, 2022 it was reported that French television viewers were outraged when a female Ukrainian neo-Nazi was invited to speak live on BFMTV. Reuters reported that AFU forces repelled Russians in the Sumy region with paintball guns. In Novozolovska, Russian forces found NATO propaganda materials in schools aimed at Ukrainian children, designed to convince them that an American Superman was going to defend them against Russia.
The Kyiv Independent
The Kyiv “Independent” was slapped together in November 2021 with what the Committee to Protect Journalists called “an emergency grant from the European Endowment for Democracy.” The European Endowment for Democracy is a spinoff of the U.S. government-funded “NGO” National Endowment for Democracy (NED), which according to its own co-founder was set up to do overtly what the CIA used to do covertly, namely orchestrate coups and manage narratives to advance U.S. interests. A page on an NED website says that “All EU member states are members of EED’s Board of Governors, together with members of the European Parliament and civil society experts." This makes The Kyiv Independent a media outlet funded by a government-run “NGO” being forcefully pushed in front of millions of western eyeballs on Twitter, a major Silicon Valley corporation that people have come to rely on for getting information about the world. In the same way Silicon Valley facilitates government censorship by proxy, it also facilitates government propaganda by proxy.

Evidence points to the Security Service of Ukraine, in conjunction with UK MI6, having committed the Bucha massacre.
Western media and the NATO allies coverup came unglued by their own investigation. A team of forensic investigators from Kyiv reported that dozens of civilians who died in the city of Bucha were killed by tiny metal arrows from shells fired by the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) artillery.
Pathologists and coroners who are carrying out postmortems on bodies found in mass graves in the region north of Kyiv said they found small metal darts, called fléchettes, embedded in people’s heads and chests. “We found several really thin, nail-like objects in the bodies of men and women and so did others of my colleagues in the region,” Vladyslav Pirovskyi, a Ukrainian forensic doctor, told The Guardian. “It is very hard to find those in the body, they are too thin. The majority of these bodies come from the Bucha-Irpin region.”
Independent weapons experts who reviewed pictures of the metal arrows found in the bodies confirmed that they were fléchettes, an anti-personnel weapon widely used during the first world war. These small metal darts are contained in tank or field gun shells. Each shell can contain up to 8,000 fléchettes. Once fired, shells burst when a timed fuse detonates and explodes above the ground.
“According to a number of witnesses in Bucha, fléchette rounds were fired by artillery a few days before Russian forces withdrew from the area at the end of March”, – The Guardian reported. The same fléchettes were used by the AFU in 2014 in the Lugansk Peoples Republic (LPR) at the start of the Donbas war.
Fléchettes were not widely used during the Second World War, but were brough back by the US during the Vietnam war. “Fléchettes are an anti-personnel weapon designed to penetrate dense vegetation and to strike a large number of enemy soldiers,” according to Amnesty International. “They should never be used in built-up civilian areas.”
A team of 18 experts from the forensic department of France’s national gendarmerie, alongside a team of forensic investigators from Kyiv, have started documenting the situation after the re-occupation of Bucha by the SBU Safari force. “We are seeing a lot mutilated (disfigured) bodies,” said Pirovsky. “A lot of them had their hands tied behind their backs and shots in the back of their heads. There were also cases with automatic gunfire, like six to eight holes on the back of victims. And we have several cases of cluster bombs’ elements embedded in the bodies of the victims.”
Evidence collected by experts during a visit to Bucha, Hostomel and Borodianka, and reviewed by independent weapons experts, showed that cluster munitions and powerful unguided bombs were used in the region. They killed a large number of civilians and destroyed at least eight buildings. These types of weapons are banned by the Ottawa Convention, which Ukraine is party to. Illegal cluster munitions were discovered in Ukrainian weapons storage depots.
The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is an intergovernmental organisation and the implementing body for the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), which entered into force on April 29, 1997. The organisation promotes and verifies the adherence to the Chemical Weapons Convention, which prohibits the use of chemical weapons and requires their destruction. Verification consists both of evaluation of declarations by member states and onsite inspections. The OPCW, with its 193 member states, is based in The Hague, Netherlands and oversees the global endeavour for the permanent and verifiable elimination of chemical weapons. The organisation was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2013.
According to Jacques Baud, a former high-ranking NATO and UN official, on January 18, 2022 Donbas defense units captured Polish speaking saboteurs equipped with Western equipment and who were seeking to create chemical incidents in Horlivka.
Every indication by the Americans early on was for preparation of another false flag chemical weapons attack. By early April, it appeared it would possibly occur in Kharkiv, Kyiv, or Poland. On April 6, 2022 the Russian Ministry of Defense accused Ukraine of preparing a false flag chemical weapons attack with chlorine in Pervomaiskyi, in the Kharkiv region. In a story published by NBC News on April 6, 20222 about the U.S. intelligence community's use of fake news in its propaganda war against Russia entitled, In a break with the past, U.S. is using intel to fight an info war with Russia, even when the intel isn't rock solid, the article included this statement:
|"three U.S. officials told NBC News this week there is no evidence Russia has brought any chemical weapons near Ukraine."|
On April 11, 2022 Western-backed Nazi remnants hopelessly trapped in the Azovstal steel plant broadcast details of an alleged chemical weapons attack. This 'red line' that Russophobic hardliners in the West vowed would bring about NATO intervention was largely ignored by Western media and governments.
After the defeat at Azovstal, morale dropped quickly both among the AFU and Ukrainian general public, as well. People began to realize that they had been lied to and deceived by the daily reporting and announcements coming out of Kyiv and broadcast globally on social media.
A day after the total surrender at the Azovstal plant, a video was broadcast with Azov commander Sviatoslav Palamar, call sign "Kalina", claiming he and his command were still at the plant and some sort of secret special operation was going on. Speculation ensued that it most likely was a sex change operation.
Reuters reported that the heads of 22 diplomatic missions, including those of European Union member states, released a joint letter on March 1, 2022 urging Pakistan to support a resolution in the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) condemning Russia. Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan responded at a public event in Islamabad saying, "What do you think of us? Are we your slaves ... that whatever you say, we will do?"
U.S. Col Douglas MacGregor, a critic of the globalist and Uniparty war on Russia said, "Russia to them [the Uniparty and globalists] represents the last major European state that is not part of the globalist internationalist empire, if you will. They've [Russia] resisted LGBTQ, they've resisted what I would call this interesting blend of nihilism, Marxism, atheism, and as a result, they [Russia] have to be subverted and overthrown." On April 11, 2022 Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said,
|"Russia's military action in Ukraine is meant to put an end to the US-dominated world order…Our special military operation is also meant to put an end to the unabashed expansion of NATO and the unabashed drive towards full domination by the United States and its Western subjects on the world stage...This domination is built on gross violations of international law and under some rules, which they are now hyping so much and which they make up on a case-by-case basis”.|
On April 25, 2022, NATO carried out another terror attack on the Russian city of Bryansk.
On February 28, 2022 Sweden, a non-NATO member, announced the country would supply the Kyiv regime with 5,000 anti-tank weapons, 135,000 field rations, 5,000 helmets, and 5,000 pieces of body armor. It was the first time Sweden sent finished weapons to a country since the Russo-Finnish war of 1939. Sweden sold iron ore vital to Nazi Germany's war effort throughout World War II and allowed passage of German troops via rail to Finland to fight the Soviet Union. On March 3, 2022, Sweden claimed two Russian SU-27 and two SU-24 fighters invaded its airspace.
For the first time in its history, the European Commission financed the purchase and transport of weapons. The package cost 450 million euros ($502m) to be delivered to the Kyiv regime. The European Commission also closed its airspace to Russian commercial airflight.
On March 11, 2022, EU external minister Josep Borrell back peddled on EU policy which provoked the war,
|"I am ready to admit that we made a number of mistakes and that we lost the possibility of Russia’s rapprochement with the West. There are moments that we could do better, there are things that we proposed and then could not implement, such as, for example, the promise that Ukraine and Georgia will become part of NATO."|
On April 9, 2022 Borrell announced more military aid to Kyiv saying that the conflict “will be won on the battlefield," a rather curious, if not foolish and downright dangerous statement given that the European Union has no military forces of its own. Borrell appeared to be encouraging Ukrainian forces to continue fighting in a lost cause to perpetuate more needless slaughter.
World Economic Forum
The World Economic Forum (WEF) announced that it severed “all relations” with the Russian government and President Vladimir Putin due to the ongoing Ukraine denazification operation. “We are not engaging with any sanctioned individual and have frozen all relations with Russian entities,” a spokesperson told Politico. Putin was completely scrubbed from the WEF website.
NATO is a system whereby European powers allow the US military to operate on their territory in exchange for the United States picking up a large portion of their defense costs. It essentially saddles US taxpayers with the cost of upholding European Socialism at the expense of America's own social welfare system, like healthcare.
Sputnik reported that a laptop with intelligence data was found at one of the headquarters of the neo-Nazi Pravy Sektor. The computer allegedly has a licensed NATO registry number, Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) head Denis Pushilin said. "The militants of the nationalists battalions have a special level of security clearance from the North Atlantic Alliance. This laptop contains a detailed map of the area with the location of our units," Pushilin said.
On March 12, 2022, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg began walking back NATO threats to Russia by saying membership for Ukraine was not relevant or on the agenda. According to reports, Stoltenberg said that any support from China to Russia would help Russia to continue to wage war and that China has an obligation as a member of the UN Security Council to uphold international law. The spokesperson of the Chinese Mission to the EU responded:
|"we will never forget who had bombed our embassy in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. We need no lecture on justice from the abuser of international law. As a Cold War remnant and the world’s largest military alliance, NATO continues to expand its geographical scope and range of operations. What kind of role it has played in world peace and stability? NATO needs to have good reflection.|
In an interview with CNN on March 20, 2022, President Zelensky said “I requested them personally to say directly that we are going to accept you into NATO in a year or two or five, just say it directly and clearly, or just say no. And the response was very clear, 'you’re not going to be a NATO member, but publicly, the doors will remain open.'”
Former Warsaw Pact NATO members sent their old Soviet-era weapons and equipment to Ukraine, not out of fear of Russia or Putin, but in exchange for free, upgraded replacement equipment courtesy of the US taxpayer and military industrial complex. The exchange of equipment keeps Raytheon and other US defenses contractors' employees employed, as well as Congressional funding flowing for upgrades and development of new weapons systems.
On April 1, 2022, Reuters reported an attack on a fuel storage facility in the Russian city of Belgorod, north of the Russia-Ukraine border. Ukrainian National Security Council Oleksiy Danilov denied any Ukrainian involvement. On April 13, 2022 more attempts at sabotage and strikes were reported against facilities on Russian Federation territory. Moscow said that if such incidents continue, the Russian Armed Forces will strike at decision-making centers, including those in Kyiv.
On the night of April 13-14 , the flagship of the Russian Black Sea fleet, the cruiser Moskva, was seriously damaged. A ship of this class in the Black Sea conditions could have been successfully attacked either by a complex of anti-ship systems, including both missiles and aircrafts, or by a submarine. According to Southfront NATO military was directly involved in the attack. Russia sent a formal demarche to Washington, D.C. warning the United States to stop arming Ukraine or face "unpredictable consequences."
To impede NATO supply lines to the fascist Kyiv regime, on the night of April 24, 2022 and morning of April 25, Russian cruise missiles destroyed six traction substations within the Ukrainian rail system, paralyzing all electric trains in western Ukraine, leaving all the NATO heavy equipment stuck on the rails and an easy target for cruise missiles.
On May 14, 2022 it was reported that AFU forces were given orders not to complain on social media about having to use foreign weapons. Western weapons, such as the Javelin, are too complicated and fail in use. The Italian newspaper Il Giornale reported that military-grade weaponry in Ukraine was allegedly being sold on to international buyers on the encrypted messaging app Telegram. Weapons said to be for sale include not just Ukrainian-origin arms such as old Soviet-era AK-47 rifles, but also American-made rifles like the M16 and the M4, along with other NATO member-origin firearms like the ARX 160 A1 manufactured by the Italian weapons company Beretta.
The United States owns and operates biological laboratories in Ukraine. An agreement to operate the laboratories was signed in 2005. On March 21, Joe Biden announced a second "new world order" after the failure of the first, which was announced by President George H.W. Bush on September 11, 1991 - exactly ten years to the day prior to the 9/11 attacks which spelled the doom of the first new world order and was completed by Joe Biden with his humiliating withdrawal from Afghanistan nearly twenty years later to the day. On March 22, 2022 the Russian state Duma established a parliamentary commission to investigate the American biological laboratories operating in Ukraine. Deputy Leonid Slutsky, who is a member of the committee, issued a statement:
|"Russia will continue to raise the issue of the need to investigate US activities in the field of biological research, including in the UN structures. Obviously, we can talk about a direct violation of the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological (Biological) and Toxin Weapons (BTWC).
What is known today from the materials that were discovered during the special military operation in Ukraine? The biolaboratories were formally under the jurisdiction of the Central Sanitary and Epidemiological Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, but Americans were placed as curators everywhere. In fact, pathogens of dangerous diseases were tested on the local genotype (Slavic). At the same time, pathogens were created that, most likely, they tried to make resistant to commercial vaccines or antibiotics. There were about 30 such laboratories in total, 13 of them had a very high level of protection.
Against this background, according to experts, in recent years Ukraine has turned into some incomprehensible hotbed of old and new diseases. For example, we all remember that measles was defeated in the USSR. But in 2005-2007, measles returned to Ukraine, moreover, in the form of an epidemic, and until 2021 it was present as a significant disease. WHO even named Ukraine the capital of measles.
A similar situation was with cholera. The last cases of cholera were registered in the country in the 90s, but in 2011 33 people fell ill with cholera in Mariupol, in 2014 there were already 800 people, in 2015-2017 more than 100 cases were recorded annually in Nikolaev.
Further more interesting: in 2009 Ternopil, 450 Ukrainians suffered from a virus that causes hemorrhagic pneumonia, which has never been present in the north of Eurasia, this virus is characteristically noted in Equatorial Africa. How he got there is a big question.
I specifically cite this data in detail in order to show the scope of everything that existed in the immediate vicinity of the territory of Russia. And it’s really scary."
Joe Biden's son, the corrupt self-admitted crackhead Hunter Biden, secured millions of dollars in funding for Metabiota, a U.S. Department of Defense contractor in Ukraine specializing in deadly pathogen research which he himself, through his company Rosemont Seneca, had invested in.
An American military aircraft was seen in the emergency area with the Russian cruiser Moskva. The Moskva was near Odessa, closer to Romania. The Moskva was equipped with a new phased array locator with illumination range is 500 km. At about 19 pm, an American military patrol and reconnaissance anti-submarine aircraft of the US Navy was spotted in the western part of Romanian airspace. The latter was located approximately 70 kilometers from the location of the Russian missile cruiser Moskva. According to data available to the Avia.pro news agency, a US military patrol reconnaissance and anti-submarine Boeing P-8A Poseidon aircraft was in the eastern part of Romanian airspace, flying with an unknown target. According to a number of data, the flight of the Boeing RC-135 aircraft was also carried out, however, the latter could not be tracked by the ADS-B Exchange resource. According to the ADS-B Exchange resource, the American Boeing P-8 Poseidon aircraft with the ICAO identification code AE681B was flying near the Zhurilovka settlement (Romania). However, due to the transponder periodically turned off by the crew, experts do not exclude that the bird could also fly over the western part of the Black Sea, where, according to preliminary information, the Russian missile cruiser Moskva was located. What kind of information could be collected by the American military reconnaissance aircraft Boeing P-8 Poseidon is still unknown, however, judging by the data presented, the bird was still in the air at 21 hours and 17 minutes. The reaction of public opinion in the Russian Federation to the interference and provocation by the United States and killing of their sailors was one of outrage, and demanding that their government and leaders take appropriate action.
The Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act of 2022 (S. 3522 117th Congress), by which Congress appropriated $40 billion in aid to Ukraine, was introduced into Congress on January 19, 2022, more than 5 weeks before the Russian incursion began. Critics assailed the action as just another money laundering bonanza for the military-industrial complex and not a coherent or well-thought-out military strategy.
On May 14, 2022 an 18 year old man in Buffalo, New York shot and killed 10 civilians at a supermarket. The shooter left behind a manifesto ornamented with the Azov Battalion Black Sun logo and highly critical of opponents of US support for the Ukrainian regime.
On May 19, 2022 The New York Times editorial board wrote, “it is still not in America’s best interest to plunge into an all-out war with Russia, even if a negotiated peace may require Ukraine to make some hard decisions; and the U.S. aims and strategy in this war have become harder to discern."
On May 20, 2022 former Ambassador to Russia, the notorious racist xenophobe Michael McFaul, admitted publicly that the United States lied to Ukraine about granting them NATO membership in order to senselessly drive Ukraine to war with Russia.
On November 9, 2021, Ottawa Citizen military reporter David Pugliese revealed that when Canadian military officials met with the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion in June 2018, they knew the group used the Nazi “Wolfsangel” symbol and praised officials who helped slaughter Jews and Poles during World War II. “A year before the meeting,” reports Pugliese, "Canada’s Joint Task Force Ukraine produced a briefing on the Azov Battalion, acknowledging its links to Nazi ideology." Rather than express public disagreement with their views, Canadian military officials sought to manage any potential public relations fallout from at least two meetings, which included Azov representatives boasting about their Canadian support.
A September 2021 report from an Institute at George Washington University revealed that Centuria boasted about being trained by some of the 200 Canadian troops in the Ukraine. The report detailed Centuria members making Nazi salutes, praising SS units and promoting white supremacy.
In March 2016 retired Canadian soldier Oksana Kuzyshyn spoke at an event titled “A Canadian’s experience training the AZOV Battalion to NATO standards”. One month earlier “nearly 200 officer cadets and professors of Canada’s Royal Military College” attended a screening of Ukrainians/Les Ukrainiens: God’s Volunteer Battalion, which praised fascist militias fighting in the Donbas.
Since U.S. and Canadian backed ultranationalists overthrew democratically elected President Viktor Yanukovych in the 2014 Maidan coup, Canadian politicians have spoken alongside and marched with Canadian members of Ukraine’s Pravy Sektor, which said it was “defending the values of white, Christian Europe against the loss of the nation and deregionalisation.” Pravy Sektor has been implicated in the Odessa Trade Unions House massacre wherein at least 46 ethnic Russians were burnt alive by Maidan fascists. The black and red flag of Pravy Sektor is based on the Nazi-era "bloods and soil" flag.
Alongside the U.S., Canada has funded, equipped and trained the neo-Nazi infiltrated National Police of Ukraine (NPU), which was founded after the democratically Yanukovych was overthrown. A former deputy commander of the Azov Battalion, Vadim Troyan had a series of senior positions in the NPU, including acting chief.
Efraim Zuroff, the Director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Israel, denounced Canadian troops for training neo-Nazi fighters in Ukraine, saying Ottawa has a responsibility to prevent such things from happening. “The Government of Canada did not exercise due diligence” Ephraim Zuroff told Citizen of Ottawa. “There is no doubt that there are neo-Nazis in Ukraine in various forms, whether in the Azov Regiment or other organizations."
During his trip to Ukraine in 2016 Justin Trudeau was photographed with Ukrainian Parliament Speaker Andriy Parubiy, who had a background with the ultranationalists and was accused of praising Hitler. In Canada is Not Back: How Justin Trudeau is in Over His Head on Foreign Policy, Jocelyn Coulon, who was a member of Trudeau’s International Affairs Council of Advisers and then an adviser to former foreign minister Stephane Dion, described how the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) sabotaged efforts to lessen tension with Russia. “Dion’s determination to restore relations with Russia quickly came up against pro Ukrainian pressure groups,” he wrote.
To a large extent Ottawa and Washington view the Ukraine as a proxy to weaken Russia. As part of this geopolitical competition, they’ve backed neo-Nazi militia members fighting the independent Donbas republics.
A celebrated Canadian sniper nicknamed Wali who served in Afghanistan answered Zelensky's call for mercenaries with much fanfare and signed a three-year contract in early March 2022, according to the CBC. By May, Wali broke his contract with the Kyiv regime, deserted, and returned to Canada without adding any kills to his reputation after seeing two Ukrainians blown apart by a tank shell.
Other Canadian mercenaries tell how at one point they discovered one of the Ukrainians had a tattoo on his hand of a “black sun,” a symbol used by the SS in Nazi Germany and sometimes by the Neo-fascist movement. “My friend James who was there literally spat on the ground in front of him … and said ‘this is everything our grandfathers fought against in the Second World War.’”
According to RIA Novosti, British officers were abruptly redeployed to Kyiv on February 24, 2022 to command defense of the city from a headquarters set up in a school. “A source in the Ukrainian Armed Forces said that after a swift offensive by a group of Russian troops on February 24 against Kiev, the British, who were assisting with intelligence to the ATO headquarters in Kramatorsk, moved to Kiev to lead the city’s defence from a headquarters based at school No 72″, – he said.
On March 26, 2022 two officers of the main department of external security of the Ministry of Defense of the French Republic (DGSE) flying by helicopter were shot down by Russian forces while on a mission to withdraw fighters from the Battle of Mariupol. The two were immediately taken prisoner by the Russians. According to reports by both a Russian and Ukrainian source, French soldiers from the Special Operations Command were in Mariupol side by side with the Azov Nazis. Troops attached to the Special Operations Command are under the orders of Chief of the Defense Staff, General Thierry Burkhard, but they receive their orders directly from the Chief of the Armed Forces, President Emmanuel Macron. On March 31, 2022, General Eric Vidaud, the head of the Direction of Military Intelligence (DRM), was fired.
Public broadcaster France-Télévision presented a report on during the France-2 evening news, on March 31, 2022. The report acknowledged that the Azov Battalion consisted of neo-Nazi elements since 2014, singling out one of its founders, Andriy Biletsky, but insisted that it had evolved into a respectable defense force. However, France-2 omitted to mention its other founder, Dmytro Yarosh, who during the Russia-Ukraine war was Adviser to the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU).
The French channel referred to an old United Nations report documenting systematic torture in Donbas, but it neglected to mention either the Azov Battalion's special prisons uncovered by the Russian army, or statements issued by the UN in this regard. France-2 also failed to explain the weight of the Banderites in Ukrainian nationalist history, reducing the prominence of the neo-Nazis to brandishing the swastika. France-2 reported the threat to be between 3,000 and 5,000 men, while Reuters reported the paramilitary Banderites number to be 102,000 men, split into several militias incorporated within the Territorial Defense.
With Macron facing re-election in weeks, the fact French officers were holed up training neo-Nazis in Azovstal was an embarrassing revelation. 
Hate crimes against Russians
The Paris office of Rossotrudnichestvo, a Russian federal government agency carrying out responsibilities for foreign aid and cultural exchange, was under attack after a Molotov cocktail thrown at it. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova asked French authorities to act on the matter and claimed that similar hate crimes are at spike by writing, "We demand that French authorities ensure proper security for our official institutions. Exactly the same kinds of attacks regularly faced Russian missions on the territory of Ukraine until 2022 - including the Russian Consulate General in Lvov in December 2021." Russians living abroad have reportedly experienced a worrisome rise in discrimination, hate crimes and acts of vandalism amidst the ongoing global NATO-inspired Russophobic psyops.
On February 26, 2022 Germany announced it would deliver 1,000 anti-tank weapons and 500 Stinger missiles to the Kyiv regime. The German Interior Ministry declared on March 28, 2022 that any individual who displays the letter “Z” would be liable for prosecution. The letter was displayed on Russian military vehicles during Operation Denazification.
Florence Gaub, deputy director of the European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS), which describes itself as “the Union’s agency dealing with the analysis of foreign, security and defence policy issues,” used this racist language to dehumanize Russians on April 12, 2022,
|“We should not forget, even if Russians look European, they are not European, in a cultural sense. They [Russians] think differently about violence or death. They have no concept of a liberal, post-modern life, a concept of life that each individual can choose. Instead, life simply can end early with death."|
On April 22, 2022 Chancellor Olaf Scholz said he's reluctant to renew a German-Russian war through proxies by sending heavy weapons to Ukraine because of the real threat of nuclear war. Four days later, bowing to pressure from the Biden regime, the German government flipped and announced it will deliver Gepard anti-aircraft tanks to Ukraine. The Gepard (Cheetah) is a short range (5 km / 3 miles) anti-air system on a tank chassis useful against helicopters, drones and low flying planes.
On May 3, 2022 Yahoo News reported that Ukraine Ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnyk insulted Chancellor Scholz in Berlin, calling him a "sulky liver sausage" for not visiting the war zone. The Kyiv regime had denied German president Frank-Walter Steinmeiner, who helped broker the Minsk Agreements, a welcome to Kyiv in April. Scholz responded to the Ukrainian government's chief representative in Germany, “You can’t do that. It can’t work that when a country has provided so much military aid, so much financial aid — which is needed — when it’s a question of the security guarantees that will be important to Ukraine in the future — you then say: But the president can’t come.”
60 Ukrainian soldiers arrived in Germany on May 11, 2022 to begin 40 days training on the five-man operated Howitzer 2000 artillery system. Other training centers are reportedly opened or opening, thus making Germany a proxy of Ukraine and a participant in the conflict. Berlin is officially supplying weapons and training to a regime that upholds Nazi ideology.
In 2018 Western media reported that two Australians who had been part of the New Zealand based Right Wing Resistance, Ethan Tilling and Jared Bennett, had fought as mercenaries in Donbas. Tilling fought with the Georgian legion, and Bennett with the Pravy Sektor. Brenton Tarrant, another Australian who killed 51 Muslim worshippers in the Christchurch New Zealand mosque shooting, travelled to Ukraine for training with the Azov Battalion and wore Azov Nazi insignia on his flak jacket during the mass killing, according to The New York Times. Tarrant was also a member of the NZ Right Wing Resistance. Former adviser to the Minister of Defense of Ukraine and founder of the Faithful Cossacks organization, Alexei Selivanov claimed that Tarrant also served as a mercenary like Tilling and Bennett who fought in special battalions in Donbass. He accused them of having killed civilians: "They shot at civilians. These people consider Muslims and Slavs to be inferior peoples. They don't care who they're shooting at. Muslims in mosques in New Zealand, or Russian speakers in Donbass."
French war correspondent Christelle Néant wrote in 2019 at the time of the Christchurch shooting,
|"[N]umerous warnings issued by Russia, the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics, several Russian and Ukrainian analysts, and myself, about the danger that post-Maidan Ukraine poses to international security were justified.
Turning a blind eye as the West has been doing for the past five years to Ukrainian neo-Nazi groups and their battalions, to their war crimes in the Donbass, and to the fact that they recruit foreign neo-Nazis who can thus come and afford "safaris" during which they can train in the use of weapons and kill human beings without risking ending up in prison before returning home quietly without being disturbed or monitored, can only lead to this kind of disaster.
It is not only physical diseases such as measles, for which Ukraine is a hotbed of infection that contaminates other countries, it is also for ideological diseases such as neo-Nazism.
And unfortunately against the latter there is no other vaccine than not to repeat the mistakes of Western governments in the 1930s, which had turned a blind eye to the horrors of Nazism in the name of the fight against communism. Yet anyone who has studied history knows how these sordid compromises ended for everyone.
Today, Western governments are doing the same thing. They turn a blind eye to the galloping development of neo-Nazism in Ukraine under the guise of fighting Russia. They turn a blind eye to the fact that these groups are armed through their battalions sent to Donbass. They turn a blind eye to the fact that their nationals will serve in these same neo-Nazi battalions, to commit war crimes against civilians in Donbass. And they turn a blind eye when these war criminals return home from their "safaris."
If the information of the Cossacks is verified, and Brenton Tarrant served well in a neo-Nazi battalion in Ukraine, then the responsibility of the Western countries in the Christchurch massacre will be overwhelming and it will be difficult for them to erase in the eyes of history and the families of the victims this indelible filth.
It is time for the West to stop covering Ukraine and the neo-Nazi groups that are developing within it, and it is especially time for Western countries to look at their nationals who served in the Ukrainian neo-Nazi battalions in the Donbass, before more killings like the one in Christchurch take place."
On May 10, 2022 Belarus announced that Ukraine created “an armed group of up to 20,000 personnel” on the border with the country. The military of Belarus announced that “in order to ensure security … in the southern direction, the forces of the special operations forces units are deployed in three tactical directions,” he said.

On March 26, 2022, Secretary of the Ukrainian National Security Council Oleksiy Danilov openly started discussing in Ukrainian media the creation of a second front in the Republic of Georgia, and the plausibility of transferring the conflict in Ukraine to Georgia. The regional headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense's biological weapons labs, including those for Ukraine, are located on the Russian border at The Lugar Center, just outside the capital of Tbilisi.
In 2007 Georgia ended its policy of having compulsory annual livestock anthrax vaccination. As a result, the morbidity rate of the disease reached its peak in 2013. The same year NATO started human based anthrax vaccine tests at the Lugar Center in Georgia.
In 2007 despite the anthrax outbreak the Georgian government terminated the compulsory vaccination for 7 years, 2013 saw NATO start human trials on a new anthrax vaccine in Georgia.
Anthrax is one of the bio agents weaponized by the US Army in the past. Despite the Pentagon’s claims that its program is only defensive, there are facts to the contrary. In 2016 at the Lugar Center American scientists carried out research on the “Genome Sequence of the Soviet/Russian Bacillus anthracis Vaccine Strain 55-VNIIVViM”, which was funded by DTRA's Cooperative Biological Engagement Program and administered by Metabiota. In 2017 the DTRA funded further research – Ten Genome Sequences of Human and Livestock Isolates of Bacillus anthracis from the Country of Georgia, which was performed by USAMRU-G at The Lugar Center.
Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is caused by infection through a tick-borne virus (Nairovirus). The disease was first characterized in Crimea in 1944 and given the name Crimean hemorrhagic fever. It was then later recognized in 1969 as the cause of illness in Congo, thus resulting in the current name of the disease. In 2014 34 people became infected (among them a 4-year old child) with CCHF, 3 of which died. The same year Pentagon biologists studied the virus in Georgia under the DTRA project “Epidemiology of febrile illnesses caused by Dengue viruses and other Arboviruses in Georgia”. The project included tests on patients with fever symptoms and the collection of ticks, as possible vectors of CCHV for laboratory analysis.
The cause of the CCHF outbreak in Georgia is still unknown. According to the local Veterinary Department report, only one tick from all of the collected species from the infected villages tested positive for the disease. Despite the claims of the local authorities that the virus was transmitted to humans from animals, all animal blood samples were negative too. The lack of infected ticks and animals is inexplicable given the sharp increase of CCHF human cases in 2014, meaning that the outbreak was not natural and the virus was spread intentionally.
In 2016 another 21 590 ticks were collected for DNA database for future studies at The Lugar Center under the Pentagon project “Assessing the Seroprevalence and Genetic Diversity of Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever Virus (CCHFV) and Hantaviruses in Georgia”.
Geopolitical analyst Paul Antonopoulos noted in early 2022 that the UK began arming Kosovo Albanians with Javelin and NLAW anti-tank missile systems. Serbian Minister of the Interior Aleksandar Vulin tole the UK foreign ministry, “You are creating an army, arming them, giving them armored vehicles, anti-tank systems, drones, conducting training, we hear that you are sending them to trial courses in Turkey and Albania,” adding that the integration of Kosovo into NATO is only intended to “provoke Serbia.” NATO so far has trained Kosovo Albanian soldiers in special forces, support units, telecommunications, anti-armour, PVO systems and more. However, this is likely just elementary training and an incomplete process with a future aim of fully equipping Kosovo’s forces with much more powerful weapon systems.
London is arming Kosovo even though there is no consensus in NATO regarding the status of the territory, with Greece, Romania, Slovakia and Spain refusing to recognize its illegally declared independence from Serbia. Despite a consensus not being reached, London and Washington are working timelessly to assist Pristina and construct some kind of Kosovo Army. In effect, the Anglo Alliance are further radicalizing Kosovo’s Albanians and encouraging destabilization in the Balkans. Instead of punishing Kosovo’s de facto Prime Minister Albin Kurti for banning Kosovo Serbs from voting, they reward him with weapons and further integration into NATO.
Lightweight anti-missile and Javelin anti-tank systems have become part of the arsenal of Kosovo’s so-called security forces. The acquisition was agreed at a meeting between Albin Kurti and Boris Johnson in February 2022. The first contingent of 50 systems was delivered in April 2022.
