The Russia-Ukraine War is a proxy war started by the United States in 2014 with the violent overthrow of the democratically elected government of Ukraine[5] aided by neo-Nazi forces.[6]

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 under Article 51 of the UN Charter;
  • the 2014 NATO overthrow of the democratically-elected government;
  • the murder of at least one hundred protesters by U.S.-backed neo-Nazis during the Maidan coup;
  • the burning alive of at least 48 anti-Maidan protesters in the Odessa Trade Unions House massacre and subsequent cover up by the U.S.-backed Maidan regime;
  • continued efforts by the CIA to subvert and overthrow the legitimate government of Belarus;
  • NATO infiltration into Ukraine and supplying weapons and training to neo-Nazi groups;
  • NATO's violation of the Joint Allied Ceasefire Declaration of May 1945 ending World War II which declared membership in a Nazi organization a crime;
  • efforts to dispose of old Soviet-era weapons stockpiles among former Warsaw Pact members and upgrade them with modern standard NATO equipment;
  • the presence of 46 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;[7]
  • Burisma oil and gas holdings in the Donets Basin;
  • efforts by the United States to scuttle Germany and other NATO allies dependency on Russian gas, kill the Nord Stream 2 pipeline trade agreement, and force NATO allies to purchase more expensive US liquified natural gas (LGN) for home heating and cooking;
  • competition between the European Union and the Eurasian Economic Union over the boundaries of their respective trade zones, playing a central role in the illegal Maidan coup;
  • violation of the assurances given by NATO not to expand eastward beyond the Oder–Neisse line which in exchange Soviet leaders consented to the re-unification of Germany;
  • so the United States can place nuclear missiles on the Ukrainian border only 5 minutes from Moscow to blackmail Russia into being subservient to Washington;
  • the EU and NATO's desire to dismember the Russian Federation in order to plunder its vast energy and natural resources;
  • 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,[8][9] which has led to violations of religious liberty by the Kyiv regime per the UN Human Rights Commission;[10]
  • 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.[11]

Ethnic cleansing in Donbas

Special Military Operation

Ukrainian TV host calls for the extermination of Russian families and children.[12]

On February 23, 2022 Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered Russian troops into Greater Ukraine in a demilitarization and denazification operation.[13] As it is crucial in purging neo-Nazis, the Russian military is stopping genocidal extermination in Donbas, arresting human sex traffickers, and destroying extremely dangerous biowarfare labs.

In a televised speech shortly before 4:00 AM Moscow time on February, 24, 2022, Putin announced that he had ordered Russian forces to enter Donbas. He insisted it was not Russia's intention to annex the Donbas Republics or Ukraine, but stated that Russia would protect the right of the Donbas Republics to self-determination, and that it would do so by forcing the "demilitarization" of the remainder of the Ukraine.

Kyiv regime sources reported throughout the day that Russian units had launched attacks on numerous targets,[14] 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.

Ukrainian soldiers invading the Donetsk People's Republic with the flags of the United States and Ukraine along with the red and black blood and soil banner of the fascist Pravy Sektor group.[15]

In city after city as the Russians advanced, the Kyiv regime refused to order evacuations of civilians, using civilians as human shields while hiding troops and heavy weapons among the population exposing them to risk in violation of the rules of war. During a ceasefire[16] negotiation on a Russian proposal to create humanitarian corridors for civilians to escape, Ukrainian Security forces murdered a top Ukrainian negotiator trying to avert a humanitarian crisis.[17]

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.[18] According to the Russian Ministry of Defense (MOD), the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) amounted to about 30 thousand servicemen, including more than 14 thousand KIA.

In a viral video, Ukrainian forces entered a village in the Donbas and prodded an elderly couple to , "Slava Ukraine" ("Glory to Ukraine"), the Ukrainian Nazi equivalent of the fascist "Heil Hitler" greeting,[19] The elderly wife approached the Ukrainian troops holding a World War II Soviet flag, mistaking them for Russian troops. The woman told the soldiers that she and her husband had “waited, prayed for them, for Putin and all the people.”[20] A Ukrainian soldier handed her a bag of food, took the flag, laid it on the ground and stood on it while attempting to persuade her to use the fascist greeting. The babushka (grandma) was aghast pointing at the flag, "My parents died for this flag, and you are stepping on it," as she handed the food back. The Soviet Babushka became an iconic symbol of Russian resistance to NATO and Ukrainian fascism.[21]

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

"My parents died for this flag."[22] The Soviet Babushka quickly became a meme and a legenad as a symbol of anti-fascist resistance.[23]

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.[24] Russian troops only entered cities on the independent territories of the DPR and LPR.[25] 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."[26] 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.[27]

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.[28] 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.[29] 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.[30] 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.[31]

Captured UK Brimstone missile.

On April 12, 2022 it was reported that Ukraine remains in the state of permanent chaos and security collapse. Regular reports about incidents involving organized crime, looting and shooting appear from almost all areas controlled by Kyiv’s forces. Units of the so-called 'Territorial Defense' formed by the Kyiv government are among the main sources of civilian casualties and friendly fire incidents in the Kyiv-controlled part of Ukraine.[32]

On May 4, 2022 Pentagon officials boasted of having trained 23,000 Ukrainian troops at its former training facility at Yavoriv[33] - most of which had already been destroyed on other fronts by May 2022.[34]

On May 8, 2022 it was reported that the Russians captured a fully intact Brimstone missile which can now be reversed engineered.[35] By the time the "hundreds" of Brimstones are launched against thousands of Russian tanks, a Russian and Chinese version of the Brimstone will likely be available. From that point forward it is only a question of who can produce more faster. The US and EU's sanction regime against Russia limits the availability of certain component materials needed. Brimstone is a next generation improvement on the American Hellfire missile, bringing Hellfire and Brimstone to the battlefield. On the same day as the disastrous and humiliating defeat and surrender at Azovstal, May 17, 2022, a Russian missile hit a military barrack at Desna, a military base 46 miles northeast of Kyiv, killing 87.[36]

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

The 90 Howitzers[37] 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.[38] The AFU reportedly used the M777 howitzers with 155 mm caliber shells to attack civilians in the city of Donetsk. On May 19, 2022 the CIA-controlled Kyiv Independent finally report that Zelensky claimed Ukraine was losing 100 soldiers daily;[39] others had placed the figure at 500 daily two weeks earlier;[40] still others placed the figure at 400-700 daily.[41]

Two months into the fighting on the Donbas front Ukrainian commanders were deserting the men they were leading.[42][43] Many of the conscripts had only two days training, as most of Ukraine's front-line soldiers had either been captured, killed, or deserted and began walking home. Morale in the AFU, as well as in the general society, dropped quickly after the fairy tale of proud and committed soldiers bravely resisting in Azovstal was shattered. On May 22, 2022, 230 AFU members were killed and 33 armored vehicles were destroyed by the Russian Armed Forces, according to the Russian MOD. In the Donetsk People’s Republic, the DPR and LPR troops with support from the Russian Armed Forces had liberated and established control over 216 settlements as of this date. War Gonzo reported the presence of two battalions of Polish infantry in the city of Pavlograd in the Dnipropetrovsk region being prepared for further transfer to the Avdiivka front.[44] Pavlograd is the most important transport hub for supplying the AFU in Donbas. Roads run from it to Marinka and the Kramatorsk-Slavic agglomeration. The railway goes towards Avdiivka. Each battalion has four "Rapier" anti-tank guns, as well also American made armored personnel carriers. It was not clear whether they were Polish regulars or mercenaries.[45] A missile attack was launched on a military facility in Pavlograd.[46]

On May 24, 2022 Politico actually reported that the US Department of Homeland Security issued a warning that American white supremacists were traveling to Ukraine so they can gain combat experience from the Ukrainian Nazis.[47]

On May 25, 2022, Kyiv regime spokesperson Alexey Arestovich blamed Germany for Ukrainian losses in the Donbas. Arestovich said,[48]

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

Arestovich was enraged by a proposal from Italy, Hungary, and Cyprus for an immediate ceasefire and for peace talks to begin[49] as the Donbas cauldron was slammed shut and 15,000 troops faced annihilation: "Go f*** yourselves with such proposals, you dumb f****."[50] Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov reiterated, "Moscow expects Kyiv to accept Moscow's demands and become aware of the de facto situation - the real situation that exists." Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych warnied that Ukraine is facing a complete loss of its sovereignty with a peoposed merger with Poland: “In 2014 already, Ukraine was designated by certain Western countries as a territory from which a total weakening of Russia should begin…Precisely as a territory, and not as an independent state, not as people wishing to live in peace with all its neighbors, not excluding Russia.”[51]

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

"on Monday May 30th, in the mid-morning hours, Three separate schools in the center of Donetsk were specifically targeted and bombed by heavy artillery of the Ukrainian Army. May 30th is traditionally the last day of the school year in Donetsk, as it is in Russia, and all schools, from kindergartens to universities, hold a celebration called "Last Bell". It is a joyous celebration, with family members attending, everyone dressed in their finest attire, with songs and poems, awards, balloons, flowers, cake and refreshments. It was these ceremonies that were specifically targeted by the Ukrainian Army, at Schools #22 and #13, and Gymnasium #33. The heavy artillery, 152mm and US-supplied 155mm shells, arrived with pinpoint accuracy, right in front of the schools, where hundreds of students, teachers and their families would have been gathered, had the celebrations not been cancelled, precisely because of the danger of ukrop nazi shelling. In spite of the precautions, two teachers, and one little girl, Lilia Ripenko died. There were also multiple wounded. Had the attack turned out as planned, there would have been scores or even hundreds of dead and wounded, many, if not most, would have been school children.[52]

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

In an interview with the Kyiv-based Interfax news agency in late May 2022, Oleksandra Koval, director of the Ukrainian Book Institute (UBI) which is part of the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, estimated that more than 100 million copies of Russian language books would be removed from Ukrainian public libraries, fully half of all libraries’ holdings.[53] The city council of Nikolaev banned the teaching of the Russian language in schools.[54] According to a 2017 survey, 63% of the population spoke Russian, 7% Ukrainian, and 28% spoke both Ukrainian and Russian equally.[55] The Ukrainian parliament passed a bill to ban Russian-language music.[56]

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

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

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

On June 12, 2022 a Russian Kalibr cruise missile[57] destroyed a very large store of NATO weapons in the Ternopil region.

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

"the United States has provided over 6,500 Javelins and 20,000 other anti-armor systems. Collectively, the international community has provided almost 97,000 anti-tank systems. More anti-tank systems than there are tanks in the world,"[58]

and yet none of it was enough, Zelensky repeatedly asked for more, and the Ukrainian regime itself reported that it was losing 1,000 fighters a day.[59]

On June 17, 2022 the major oil refinery at Kremenchuk was destroyed by Russian cruise missiles.[60]

On June 19, 2022 Zelensky told a group of soldiers in Mykolaiv, "Ukraine will definitely win;"[61] hours later Lt. Gen. Igor Konashenkov of ther Russian Ministry of Defense announced that Russian sea-launched Kalibr cruise missiles wiped out the Ukrainian General Staff operating in Mykolaiv and Zaporozhye.[62] 57 top Ukrainian officers were killed in the strike.

The Russian Ministry of Defense reported on June 20, 2022:

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

Several AFU POWs became instructors for Russian forces on how to use captured NATO missiles, such as the Javelin, NLAW, and Panzerfaust 3.[63][64][65] By one estimate, the Russians had captured more U.S. made Javelin anti-tank missiles than rhe AFU fired at Russian tanks.

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,[66] as it applies to Article 51 of the United Nations Charter.[67] 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.[68]

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.’”[69] 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.[70] 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.

On February 24, 2022 Vladimir Putin addressed the nation and made clear the objective of the Special Military Operation in Ukraine was not regime change:

"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."[71]

Donbas cauldron

See also: 2022 Special Military Operation in Ukraine - Donbas cauldron
Classic pincer movement:[72] the Donbas cauldron (in green), March 9, 2022. Half the Armed Forces of Ukraine were being encircled.

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 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.[73] The Donbas cauldron was confirmed closed on March 14, 2022.[74] 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.[75]

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.[76]

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.[77]

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 10, 2022 Volodymyr Zelensky ordered the AFU to attack the territory of the Russian Federation.[78]

Developing encirclements, May 30, 2022.

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).[79]

The difficulty Russians experienced in establishing a crossing over the Seversky Donets river during the month of May caused the development of multiple mini-cauldrons, or "boilers" throughout the Donbas front. The strategic use of kesselschlacht or cauldron warfare does not require the complete physical encirclement of enemy forces - encirclement can be achieved by artillery fire control of escape routes.

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.

On May 27, 2022 The Washington Post finally reported in an article entitled, Ukrainian Volunteer Fighters In The East Feel Abandoned, on the fighting men's fate. In mid February 2022 they were still civilians. They 'volunteered' for the territorial defense with the hope of serving near their homes, to avoid a draft into the army:

"Stuck in their trenches, the Ukrainian volunteers lived off a potato per day as Russian forces pounded them with artillery and Grad rockets on a key eastern front line…Outnumbered, untrained and clutching only light weapons, the men prayed for the barrage to end — and for their own tanks to stop targeting the Russians...[A]fter three months of war, this company of 120 men is down to 54 because of deaths, injuries and desertions.

The volunteers were civilians before Russia invaded on Feb. 24, and they never expected to be dispatched to one of the most dangerous front lines in eastern Ukraine. They quickly found themselves in the crosshairs of war, feeling abandoned by their military superiors and struggling to survive....

Lapko, built like a wrestler, was made a company commander in the 5th Separate Rifle Battalion, in charge of 120 men. The similarly burly Khrus became a platoon commander under Lapko. All of their comrades were from western Ukraine. They were handed AK-47 rifles and given training that lasted less than a half-hour. “We shot 30 bullets and then they said, ‘You can’t get more; too expensive,’ ” Lapko said. They were given orders to head to the western city of Lviv. When they got there, they were ordered to go south and then east into Luhansk province in Donbas...[80]

96% of Burisma oil and gas production comes from the Donets Basin (Donbas), from a 2018 Burisma promotional video.[81]

The men were put into a frontline ditch and have since been shelled again and again without any ability to respond. They disregarded the orders from above and left. They were then arrested. The Zelensky regime had sent 14,000 members of the ill-trained, ill-equipped, ill-prepared members of the Territorial Defense into the Donbas cauldron.

As the Russian offensive intensified, the pace of surrenders accelerated. The offensives in village after village and town after town was stop and go, as ceasefires were called to allow civilian evacuations.

On June 6, 2022 seven civilians were reportedly killed in Donetsk by artillery shelling from a M777 155 mm Howitzer donated by NATO to Ukrainian forces.

Izium-Kharkiv front

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,

Russian troop strength, May 20, 2022 with the Popasana "flower" blooming out.
"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.[82]

On April 22, 2022 reports emerged of the capture of the largest weapons depot in Ukraine by Russian forces in the Kharkiv region.[83]

The Russians have been firing 40,000-60,000 artillery shells per day, mostly on the Izium front. The United States pledged to send 190,000 artillery shells to Ukraine, which cam be consumed in 4 days. 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.

The town of Liman (pop. 20,000), a key railway hub and the only escape route from the cauldron, was liberated in hours on May 26, 2022 with little fighting as Ukrainian forces fled.[86] By mid-June 2022 over 500 Ukrainians surrendered in the area in two days.

The Russian Armed Forces used a new version of the Solntsepek (or Sunbake) heavy flamethrower system, TOS-2, during an offensive at Stary Soltov near Kharkiv.[87] It is based on TOS-1A with significant advantages. The platform truck has an increased cross-country capability, increased engagement range and fully automated firing process and protected by an electronic jamming system.

A 17th century wooden church designated as part of a larger UNESCO historic site at Sviatohirsk was used by Ukrainian forces as a weapons storage dump and was destroyed by fire on June 4, 2022. The mayor confirmed that Ukrainian forces took the monks hostage and set fire to the church as they retreated. The larger monastery however was preserved intact by liberating Russian forces. The same day AFU artillery shells struck six schools in Donetsk again, this time the same 3 schools they had attacked on May 30, plus three more.

On June 9, 2022 two American mercenaries were captured by Russian forces near Kharkiv.[88]

On June 16, 2022 Russian forces destroyed the headquarters of the neo-Nazi Kraken unit in the Kharkiv region[89]

Seversky Donets front

The Donbas cauldron on April 1, 2022.

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.[90] The CIA-controlled Kyiv Independent stated that Zelensky said there are 44,000 AFU troops on the Donbas front.[91]

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.

In any city, town, or village the AFU entered, they went straight to the local schools to set up headquarters,[92] making the building a legitimate target per international conventions and rules of war. This was foundational to Ukraine's propaganda strategy and not its military strategy.

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 (pop. 55,000) and commenced an organized withdrawal from Severodonetsk across the Severskii Donets river into Lisichansk (pop. 95,000). The AFU launched another Tochka-U missile armed with cluster munitions against the civilian population of Donbas, killing 5 people including one child.

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.[93] 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[94] took part in the fighting.[95]

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.[96]

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,[97] only making sure that Russian artillery strikes will destroy them.[98] Zelensky had been warned by the UK's MI6 about the risk of encirclement of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Severodonetsk, but ignored the warnings.[99] Videos of survivors of Ukrainian combat groups appeared on line accusing Ukrainian commanders of having abandoned the troops on the battlefield.[100][101] 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.[102][103] 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.

AFU deployment, May 15, 2022.

On May 7, 2022 Russian forces breakthrough the heavily fortified town of Popasana. Since the Wagner Group and Chechens showed up a week earlier, the AFU began losing about 150 troops per day. Popasana sits on the high ground, and the breakthrough the Russians refer to as the "flower", which can been seen on a map as Russian forces flood through beyond the previous line of contact. The fall of Popasana cut off the main supply line to 12,000 AFU troops in Severodonetsk-Lisichansk. According to residents, Ukrainian tanks were deployed near residential buildings on Popasna and purposefully fired at buildings 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.[104]

On May 9, 2022 Russians troops encountered a failed river crossing at Bilohorivka.[105]

On May 13, 2022 Biden defense minister Lloyd Austin, who only a week earlier boasted of weakening Russia, called Russian Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu to beg for mercy for the Nazi proxies.[106]

Failed Russian river crossing at Bilohorivka.

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-Severodonetsk. 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.

With the destruction of so many frontline AFU force, by May 21, 2022 most of the AFU troops operating in Severodonetsk had been withdrawn across river to Lisichansk, leaving about 4,000 troops spread out in surrounding villages and suburbs and about 800 Ukrainian troops hiding from Russian strikes in the industrial zone of Severodonetsk. The only escape route remaining was one bridge impassable with heavy equipment. Partisan forces of Novorossiya were reported to be taking part in the fighting. An estimated 10,000 AFU troops were concentrated west of the river in Lisichansk and 3,000 in the Zolote pocket. Some AFU units were refusing to fight after their battlefield commanders fled the field.[107][108][109][110][111][112][113][114][115][116][117][118][119] Elite Ukrainian paratroopers began surrendering.

In the morning of May 24, 2022 DNR and Russian forces established full control over the town of Svetlodarsk (pop. 10,000),[120] which is located northeast of Gorlovka. This town, as well as earlier liberated Popasna, was heavily fortified points of Kyiv’s forces. The highway between Bakhmut (pop. 70,000) and Lisichansk is cut off by forward units of the Russian military.

The Russians introduced the Terminator tank in combat in Severodonetsk.[121]

On May 30, 2022 the first reports a partial liberation of Severodonetsk from fascist forces emerged.[123] Reports indicated Russian control of about 40% of the city, with the two battalions of Ukrainian forces trapped in the city retreating to the industrial area as they did in Mariupol. Even Western media reported, “Russian forces advanced Monday into the center of Severodonetsk, one of the last Ukrainian strongholds in the eastern Donbas region."[124] Reports of Ukrainian forces shelling civilian areas of Severodonetsk continued.[125] The Territorial Defense appeared incapable of withstanding the Russian offensive so Ukraine sent in its foreign mercenary contingents and the last of its elite Special Operations Forces from the Kramatorsk garrison. Russian forces identified Polish and English speaking mercenaries fighting on the front line in the city of Severodonetsk. The mercenaries were withdraawn a day later following heavy losses up to 90% in some units.[126] A UK mercenary was reportedly killed.

On May 31, 2022 the AFU carried out an attack on the residential areas in the town of Stakhanov (pop. 70,000) in the Lugansk Republic. Two pregnant women were killed and 24 other civilians were injured, including eight children.

On June 1, 2022 only the Azot chemical plant in Severodonetsk was in Ukrainian hands. Ukrainian forces exploded a large tank containing nitric acid at the plant.

By June 6, 2022 the Russians were able to establish a bridgehead on the west side of Seversky Donets river. The Russian Ministry of Defense reported, "Ukrainian barrier troops blew up a road bridge in the town of Svyatogorsk in the northern part of the Donetsk People’s Republic...Cut off from the main forces and supply lines due to the destruction of the bridge, the troops abandoned military equipment and their weaponry and scattered along the bank of the Seversky Donets river...Up to 80 Ukrainian servicemen crossed the river by swimming. Russian soldiers have knowingly not opened fire on them." Svyatogorsk (pop. 4000) is viewed as strategically important due to it being one of the key points for a complete encirclement of the Ukrainian army in the Donbas.[127] Russians immediately began de-mining operations.

On June 8, 2022 more reports emerged of Ukrainian forces taking civilian hostages in the Azot chemical plant. At least 800 are said to be held.

On June 9, 2022 the AFU carried out about 20 strikes on the residential areas in the town of Stakhanov in the Luhansk People’s Republic. The artillery fire was conducted from the AFU military positions in Bakhmut. The death toll reached 22 civilians according to the reports by the local Ministry of Emergency Situations. The city hospital, stadium, dormitory, and residential buildings were damaged. The town was shelled by a Ukrainian Hurricane (Uragan) rocket with high-explosive missiles. On June 10, 2022 there was fierce fighting around Toshkovka (pop. 4,000).[129]

On June 11, 2022 Russian forces took control of Severodonetsk Airport.

On June 13, 2022 reports indicated that the Ukrainian fighters trapped in the Azot chemical plant in Severodonetsk were attempting to bargain with the lives of the 800 civilian hostages for safe passage out of the city. Other reports indicated that the Ukrainian forces trapped in the plant numbered about 2,500, with approximately 600 foreign mercenaries, including mercenaries from the Republic of Georgia, now facing the death penalty. The last bridge between Lysychansk and Severodonetsk has also been destroyed. Russia agreed to providing a humanitarian corridor for civilians and surrendering Ukrainian troops who leave the Azot chemical plant. One 74 year old man left the Azot plant through the corridor in the first 24 hours. There was no electric power in the bunkers and the hostages and fighters reportedly were running out of food and water.

The Zolote cauldron, June 22, 2022.

On June 21, 2022 the defenses around Toshkovka fell, completing the encirclement of 2,500 Ukrainian fighters in the Zolote cauldron. The Russians now stood at the southeast suburbs of Lysychansk.[130] The frontlines around Severdonetsk-Lysuchansk started to crumble. In the north of the Zolote cauldron, the Russian MoD claimed Ukrainian forces refused to obey orders and mass abandoned positions in Pidlisne, Hirske and Vrubivka: "Servicemen of a battalion from the 57th Mechanised Infantry Brigade that had been defending near Gorskoye, Podlesnoye, Vrubovka (Lugansk People's Republic) refused to obey the order of their command and abandoned all their positions after losing more than 60 per cent of personnel." Reports indicate about 800 Ukrainian soldiers participated in the mutiny, most of which were pressed into service a month ago with little training. The next day the cities of Zolote and Hirske fell, and Russian military commanders met with local civil administration officials.

Between June 22 and 24, 2022, over 800 Ukrainian troops surrendered near Lysychansk. Many Ukrainian POWs reported that they had not eaten in days and received their first bites of food from their Russian captors. On June 24, 2022 Kyiv ordered a retreat from Severodonetsk across the river to Lysychansk, ceding all of Lugansk territory. The destruction of bridges made retreat difficult. About 8,000 Ukrainian forces and 700 vehicles remained in Lysychansk.

Slovyansk-Kramatorsk front

On June 9, 2022 President Pushilin of the DNR announced that the Battle of Slovyansk officially began. The advance on Slovyansk was being led by Chechen fighters. Gen. Valerii Zaluzhnyi is reported to have asked Ukrainian dictator Volodymyr Zelensky to withdraw what forces remained from the hopeless situation along the Severodonsk front to fortified positions around Kramatorsk and Slovyansk. An estimated 8,000-12,000 troops were sent to the Severodonetsk-Lysichansk front, ill-trained, ill-prepared, and ill-equipped. Zelesnky had resisted all requests from all quarters to withdraw the troops as the Russians advanced, needlessly leaving thousands of men to their deaths in a war that Ukraine could not win, only to generate sympathy and money from the Western public and their governments through Western media that reported every bit of the lies of official Ukrainian propaganda as if it were factual reporting and truth.

According to DPR authorities, there may be as many as 70,000 Ukrainian fighters in the Slovyansk-Kramatorsk agglomeration.

Avdiivka-Dontesk front

See also: First Battle of Avdiivka

On March 12, 2022 the second Battle of Avdiivka, just north of Donetsk city, began. On March 15, Ukrainians counterattacked.

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.[131] 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 (pop. 30,000). About 15,000 Ukrainian troops remained in the Avdiivka bridgehead.

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.[132]

By the end of May 2022, the civilians of the city of Donetsk remained under heavy bombardment by the Armed forces of Ukraine in Avdiivka.

Shelling of the civilians of Donetsk city by Ukrainian forces from Avdiivka continued throughout the end of May 2022 and into June in and effort to draw Russian forces away from the Severodonetsk-Lysichansk cauldron.[133] On June 11, 2022 a mother and her 11 year old son were killed by Ukrainina shelling while shopping in an open market. On June 13, 2022 300 projectiles were fired by the Ukrainian army or by 'nationalists' onto civilian areas of the city of Donetsk.[134] It was the heaviest shelling in 8 years, A maternity hospital and church were hit.[135] There were at lest 7 dead and 22 wounded. According to the DPR authorities, the daily number of civilian victims exceeded the losses of the DPR military on the front lines.

French self-propelled 155-mm CAESAR howitzers were used to kill civilians. The attack was ordered by Ukrainian Colonel Roman Vladimirovich Kachur, commander of the 55th Separate Artillery Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

On June 20, 2022 the Ukrainians used for the first time their HIMAR missiles on the civilians of Donetsk, in addition to continued use of the M777 Howitzers.

Zaporozhye line

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.[136]

In early June 2022 thousands of people began lining up in the city of Melitopol to apply for Russian passports which essentially grants Russian citizenship. When citizen remarked, “We got in line in 1991. But it got to us only now. Since 1991, we felt like this had to happen at some point. Of course, it took 30 years. But that’s OK, we know how to wait."[137]

On June 13, 2022 Ukrainian shelling of Melitopol killed 3 civilians.

On June 14, 2022 Russian Ministry of Defense (MOD) spokesman Lt. Gen. Igor Konashenkov reported 32 Ukrainian servicemen of the 25th battalion of the 54th mechanized brigade in the area of ​​​​Novomikhailovka turned on the radio to the Russian command, asked for a cease fire and to provide a corridor for their surrender. As the ADU units with white flags began to advance towards the Russian positions, "a detachment of Ukrainian nationalists, who arrived at the stronghold on armored vehicles, opened crossfire at the servicemen of the 54th brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the back. As a result of this shooting, 32 Ukrainian servicemen were fatally wounded and killed.” Konashenkov noted such incidents have become more frequent.[138]

On June 16, 2022 the Russian MOD announced the elimination 280 Ukrainian fighters in the Razdolovka region.

Odessa cauldron

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 (Russ: Nikolayev), 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.[139]

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."[140]

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.[141] 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.[142]

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.

Zatoka bridge, May 21, 2022.

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.

On May 26, 2022 Southfront reported that because of the threat to the Black Sea fleet with the delivery of Harpoon missiles to Ukraine by Denmark, the Russian Federation may accelerate its combat operations in Odessa before the missiles are deployed with the Ukrainian military.[143]

By May 31, 2022 the Zatoka bridge across the Dniester River which carried NATO weapons and fuel from Romania to Odessa was struck 8 times by Russia and rebuilt 7 times by Ukraine.[144]

In early June 2022, a British film production company began filming fake, staged combat footage near Mikoleav, completed with role players dressed as Russians, to show the alleged heroism and courage to the world of Ukrainian fighters.

On June 16, 2022 the Russian MOD reported the elimination of another 200 Ukrainian troops in the Nikolaev region. Ukrainians hit a Russian tug boat with a Harpoon missile.

On June 19, 2922 high-precision long-distance Kalibr cruise missiles destroyed ten M777 155-mm Howitzers and up to 20 armored combat vehicles delivered by the West to the Kyiv regime in recent days that were hidden in a transformer plant in Nikolayev.

On June 22, 2022 the Russian Ministry of Defense announced the destruction of up to 500 Ukrainian soldiers at the Okean ship building plant in Nikolaev.


When the Russians initially entered Kherson (Russ: XEPCOH) city (pop. 280,000), 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. Kherson and Zaporozhye were integrated into the Russian internet and the Time Zone advanced one hour to Moscow time.

Coat of Arms of the Republic of Zaporozhye.

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 in the Kherson region (pop. 1 million in the republic), 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.[145]

On May 29, 2022 Tass reported on an alleged Ukrainian counteroffensive[146] and breach of Russian defenses: "about 20 Ukrainian combat vehicles tried to wade through but were reduced to dust with 210 people…According to our data, seventy people are still on the battlefield…The success of this operation is that Mr. Zelensky and other officials keep on declaring: "We are fine, we are winning’...But this is a lie...Today’s breakthrough that involved around six types of vehicles was stopped...The Kherson region is denazified forever...It is a Russian land.”[147] The alleged Ukrainian "offensive" was halted at point blank range with the TOS-1A Solntsepek (Sunbake) thermobaric fuel air explosive multiple rocket launcher.[148] Ukraine forces continued shelling residential areas, killing civilians.[149]

On June 1, 2022 Ukrainian forces shelled civilians in Kherson, killing at least 3 with cluster munitions.[150]

Mariupol cauldron

See also: Battle of Mariupol

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 by the Ukrainian Ministry of the Interior's National Guard and terrorized the local, predominantly Russian, population. 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.

US biological labs in Mariupol

Location of U.S. owned and operated biological labs in the territories formerly of eastern and southern Ukraine.

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.[151]

Ukrainian use of civilian human shields

According to the testimony of civilian survivors, Azov Nazis shot civilians attempting to flee Mariupol.[152] One civilian survivor testified that Ukrainian forces shot up whole "busloads" of fleeing civilians.[153] In a YouTube broadcast from AZOV Media, Ukrainian Nazis admitted they use civilians as human shields:.[154]

Illustration of Ukrainian tactics, illegally turning residential compounds into legitimate military targets, presented to the UN Security Council, May 6, 2022.[155]
"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!" [156]

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.[157] Survivors also testified that AZOV went about the city in civilian dress without uniforms.[158]

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.[159]

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.[160] Reports On April 19, one hundred forty civilian were liberated from Azovstal.[161] 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.[162]

Final 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.[163] 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.

Ukrainian Nazis surrender at Azovstal: (left) SS Galicia Division insignia, (right) SS Totenkopfverbände insignia.

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.[164]

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.[165] 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.[166] 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"[167]

The total number of unconditional surrenders since Monday, May 16, 2022 cascaded to 2,439 by May 20,[168] 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. People who swore to fight Russians until the last drop of blood surrendered. Kyiv tried to whitewash that embarrassment.[169] Azov Regiment commander Lt. Colonel Denys Prokopenko (call sign "Radish") surrendered and was transported to Russia to face a denazification Tribunal in an armored vehicle for fear of reprisals against the accused by the civilian population of Mariupol.[170][171]

In sum, 2,511 Azoz personnel were captured throughout the duration of the fighting in Mariupol. Individually, all were carrying large amounts of money - dollars, euros, Ukrainian hryvnia, and gold. All faced criminal prosecution and not military justice.[172]

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.[173][174][175][176][177][178][179][180][181][182]

More egregious forms of torture and killing are systematically carried out by the Ukrainian gestapo and neo-Nazi groups under their control.

In Luhansk, a former sausage factory converted into a torture facility in 2014 was liberated in May 2022.[183]

"Peacemaker" kill list

The Myrotvorets website, a kill list authorizing on the spot execution of journalists and anyone deemed a "Russian sympathizer", shows Langley, Virgina USA, home of the CIA (upper right corner) as its headquarters.[184]

Myrotvorets ("Peacemaker") is an online searchable database of what its owner declares are “enemies of Ukraine,” containing personal doxxing information and addresses. The website's mainpage lists Langley, Virginia, home of the CIA, and Warsaw, Poland as its official home. Journalists who depart from the CIA and Kyiv party line are added to the list. Ukrainian security services in the field regularly use the searchable database and anyone captured in Ukraine whose name appears in the database can be executed on the spot.[185]

The blacklist is affiliated with the Ukrainian government and SBU and was founded by Anton Herashchenko, as of 2022 an advisor to the Zelensky regime's Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs.[186] Multiple people have been killed soon after their names were added to the list.[187] Hunting down opposition supporters in allegedly "democratic" Ukraine, as leaders in NATO countries refer to it, in order to beat, humiliate, and even kill opponents is what Ukrainian radicals call “political safari.” American filmmaker Oliver Stone appears on the list.

Atrocities committed against civilians

Ukraine Special Forces SAFARI was sent into Bucha after the Russian withdrawal to hunt down so-called "collaborators", for example, people who accepted Russian humanitarian relief.[188]

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."[189]
SBU special forces with Cyrillic СБУ acronym brutalizing civilians, April 2, 2022.[190]

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.[191]

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:
‘Special forces have begun a clearing operation in the city of Bucha in the Kyiv region, which has been liberated by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The city is being cleared from saboteurs and accomplices of Russian forces.’[192]

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?’[193] To which a positive response follows. The video was originally posted by the leader of the territorial defense Sergey ‘Botsman’ Korotkikh.”[194] Sergey ‘Botsman’ Korotkikh later makes startling postings about the disappearance of Chilean/American journalist Gonzalo Lira from Kharkiv[195]

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.[196] 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."[197]

The Pentagon refused to confirm the Ukrainian government's claim that Russians were responsible for the massacre. [198][199][200]

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."[201]

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.[202][203] 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:[204]

After posting a list of prominent people disappeared or murdered by the Zelensky regime,[205] Gonzalo Lira himself was disappeared from Kharkov.[206]
"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,[207] 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.[208]

On April 15, 2022 the Zelensky regime gestapo abducted YouTube reporter Gonzalo Lira.[209] 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.[210]

Ukrainian hostage taking and use of human shields

Ukrainian tanks illegally stationed outside residential apartment complex.

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.”[211] 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.

Ukrainian chemical attack near Mazanovka, May 16, 2022.[212]

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.[213] 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.[214]

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.[215] 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.[216]

Former Commissioner for Ethno-National Policy in the Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers instructed doctors to castrate Russian POWs "because they are cockroaches, not human."[217]

Gennadiy Druzenko, a Fulbright-Kennan Institute Research Scholar at the Kennan Institute and fellow at the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C.,[218] head of the Center for Constitutional Design,[219] 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[220] 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."[221]

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. [222]

Tortured and executed Russian POW.

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.[223] The facial recognition service is provided by Clearview to the Kyiv regime free of charge.[224]

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.[225] On May 1,2022 Sergey Velichko (call sign "Chili") was captured by Russian forces and confessed to the war crime.[226]

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.[227]

On May 10, 2022 a former French Army soldier who spent several weeks in Ukraine delivering medical equipment and supplies told Sud Radio that Ukrainian Nazis "wanted to skin blacks and Jews":[228]

"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."[229]

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.[230]

NATO-backed foreign mercenaries

See also: NATO-backed foreign mercenaries

Captured mercenaries face the death penalty under international law - a little known fact not disclosed by Western governments and Western mainstream media promoting volunteers to travel to Ukraine to fight alongside Ukrainian forces against the Russian Federation.[231] Mercenaries who answer Zelensky's call face the death penalty. Despite praising foreign volunteers' 'heroism", there is no known case of the government of a captured foreign volunteer interceding on the behalf of fighter.

The Washington Post did not admit until May 29, 2022 that NATO-backed mercenaries were “underequipped and outgunned”, citing one them saying “From the beginning, we had no chance.”[232]

On June 2, 2022 the Russian Ministry of Defense reported:

"According to the data that we have, today the total number of foreign mercenaries in Ukraine has almost halved - from 6,600 to 3,500 people. The Kiev regime's urgent attempts to guarantee legal protection to mercenaries, including them in the list of military units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine or the National Guard, or issuing them new passports of Ukrainian citizens, will not save any of them. In accordance with international humanitarian law, mercenaries are not combatants, and the best that awaits them is criminal liability.”

On June 6, 2022 the criminal trials of one Moroccan and two British mercenaries began in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR).[233] They were charged with participating in the preparation and conduct of hostilities against the DPR, as well as “mercenary activities and the commission by a group of persons by prior agreement of actions aimed at forcibly seizing power and forcibly changing the constitutional order of the DPR. Under the Criminal Code of the Republic, mercenary activity is punishable by imprisonment for 3 to 7 years. Forcible seizure of power in the DPR is punishable by imprisonment from 12 to 20 years, and in wartime the death penalty can apply. Mercenary activity is recognized as a crime under international law. UK Foreign Minister Liz Truss had publicly advocated and encouraged mercenary activity by UK citizens in March 2022;[234] the UK government then abandoned the two UK mercenaries being charged who were fighting "illegally."[235] On June 9 the three mercenaries were convicted of mercenary activity and sentenced to death. Another UK mercenary yet to be charged and tried, had coordinates with the wording "civ mass grave" near Kyiv in his personal notebook. The area is not under Russian control and there is no way to verify if the site is indeed a civilian mass grave at this time. On June 11, 2022 the UK Express reported that Kyiv was willing to trade opposition leader Viktor Medvedchuk whom the Ukrainian government was holding hostage in exchange for the two convicted UK mercenaries, acknowledging a debt of gratitude Kyiv owed to the UK regime.[236]

On June 15, 2022 the Russian armed services created a website with a searchable database of all known mercenaries in Ukraine. The purpose was to give mercenaries the opportunity to surrender voluntarily and possibly an exit out of the war zone if they have not participated in hostilities. It also allows for tips from the public to report on mercenaries in the warzone that are not yet listed. The status of whether they dead or alive can also be determined from the site.[237]

As of June 17, 2022 the Russian MOD reported that 28% of all mercenaries have been killed, or nearly 2,000 of almost 7,000 total.

Belarusian neo-Nazis

The United States and NATO support the Belarussian neo-Nazi movement.[238][239] Belarussian neo-Nazis have flooded into Ukraine as NATO-backed mercenaries.

US-backed Nazi insurgency

Yahoo News reported on January 13, 2022:

Nazi propaganda from World War II depicting Russians as 'The Subhuman'.[240] Azov Battalion Commander Andriy Biletsky said "Ukraine's mission is to lead the white races of the world in a final crusade against Semite-led Untermenschen."[241]
"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.’”[242]

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.[243]

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.[244]

Dmitry Savluchenko, head of the Kherson Youth and Sports Department, was murdered by U.S.-backed neo-Nazi insurgents on June 23, 2022.

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."[245] 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 co-belligerent.[246]

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.[247]

NATO-backed neo-Nazi partisan insurgent activity and sabotage, as well as terroristic acts against the civilian population, was detected in the Zaporozhe and Kherson Republics as early as June 2022. The same month Biden Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks said the Pentagon was prepared to continue supplying arms for five, 10, and 20 years into the future.[248]

On June 22, 2022 there was an attempt on the life of Yury Turulev, the head of the military-civilian administration of Chernobaevka, in the Kherson Republic. He received minor shrapnel wounds. The IED was hidden in the grass near an intersection, near a fence of an apartment building.[249] A second U.S.-backed neo-Nazi terror attack in the form of car bomb murdered Dmitry Savluchenko, head of the regional Youth and Sports Department, the following day.[250]

NATO looting Russian art

The UK looted the priceless handcrafted, gold and diamond clad Fabergé eggs that once were gifts of Czars Alexander III and Nicholas II as Easter gifts for their wives and mothers.[251]

On April 6, 2022 it was reported that Finland seized $46 Million worth of art on loan from the Hermitage museum of St. Petersburg. The collection included works by Titian and Picasso.[252]

Denazification trials

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.[253] 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.”[254]

Authorities of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics and their counterparts in Russia have been investigating and recording the crimes by the Ukrainian military and neo-Nazi militias going back to early 2014, when the Kyiv junta first initiated its policy of ethnic cleansing in the Donbas. A number of representatives of other countries have agreed to participate in the tribunal as representatives. One of the first stages of the tribunal will be held in Mariupol. DPR head Denis Pushilin announced on May 24, 2022:

"I think we should not delay, and a number of intermediate ones should be held before the main tribunal, as it was after the Great Patriotic War. Before Nuremberg, there were Kiev and Kharkov tribunals, and a number of others. Apparently, one of the first will be the Mariupol Tribunal."[255]

Expansion of war

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

The "interagency consensus" of the United States government has conducted an armed proxy war against ethnic Russians living in the Donbas for eight years, since 2014.[256] President Donald John Trump was impeached in 2019 by the Democratic party, who control the United States House of Representatives, for going against this "interagency consensus" of the Executive Branch to foment a proxy war between the United States and Russia in Ukraine.[257]

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.[258]

Trump-Russia collusion hoaxer Glenn Simpson (left); Adam Schiff (right): "We fight Russia there so we don't have to fight Russia here."[259]

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.”[260]

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

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

The Novoshakhtinsk refinery about five kilometers inside the Russian border in the Rostov region, was attacked and set on fire by two Chinese made commercial drones that sell in kit for $6,500. The engine sells separately for an additional $1,149. The refinery is one of the largest in Russia’s southern region.

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.[261]

On May 24, 2022 Hungary declared a state of emergency.[262]

On May 28, 2022 Europol, the European Unions law enforcement agency, issued a grave warning that NATO weapons flooding into Ukraine were ending up in the hands of criminal organizations.[263]

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

"The war in Ukraine cannot be stopped without the direct intervention of NATO, said Wesley Clark, the former commander of the alliance's armed forces in Europe. "The idea that Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg is defending now, and which finds support among other members of the alliance - that NATO can actively not intervene if it is not directly attacked - this idea remained in the 90s. It's time to learn the lessons. NATO must intervene. Let's officially recognize this and order the Russians to cease fire," Clark was quoted as saying by Voice of America. According to the retired US Army general, the alliance should either "go beyond the outlined framework or cease its activities."[264][265][266]
Black Sea provocations

Ukraine mined its own harbors,[267] with the military advice of NATO, blocking their own export of their own grain harvest.

On April 19, 2022 the Times of London reported that the United States was indeed responsible for the April 13 sinking of the Moskva by relaying information to the AFU on the location of the ship via P-8 Poseidon surveillance aircraft with anti-ship and anti-submarine capabilities.[268] 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,[269]

The Moskva was disabled and sunk on April 13, 2022 reportedly with NATO assistance.[270]
Humanitarian corridor for safe passage of foreign ships established by the Russian Navy.
"The Moskva was on combat duty 100-120 km away from Odessa – controlling the airspace within a radius of 250-300 km. So in fact it was ensuring the overlap of the southern half of Moldova, the space from Izmail to Odessa and part of Romania (including the port of Constanta). Its positioning could not be more strategic. Moskva was interfering with NATO’s covert transfer of military aircraft (helicopters and fighter jets) from Romania to Ukraine. It was being watched 24/7. NATO air reconnaissance was totally on it.

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

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

The provocation marked a significant escalation of electronic warfare in international waters and airspace with Russian public opinion and the families of missing sailors demanding a response from their government. On May 23, 2022 it was announced that Denmark would provide an unspecified number of US-made Harpoon anti-ship missiles and launchers to Ukraine.[271] Denmark’s supply of Harpoon missiles to Ukraine to fight the Russian Black Sea Fleet sent off alarm bells in the Kremlin, revealing the goals of NATO's "coalition of the willing" for provocative engagements with Russia's Black Sea fleet. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko noted that if foreign warships enter the Black Sea under the pretext of escorting civilian ships with grain, this would inevitably lead to the war between Russia and NATO. Russia would be concerned about escorting ships with grain, especially if they were British ships. On May 25 according to Radio Liberty Moscow offered safe passage of Ukrainian food exports.[272] The Russian Defense Ministry opened the first humanitarian corridor for foreign ships from Mariupol. In a telephone conversation with Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer, a neutral intermediary, TASS reported that President Putin said Ukraine should de-mine its ports to ensure free passage of the blocked ships as soon as possible.[273]

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

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

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

A U.S. Air Force Global Hawk RQ-4 strategic reconnaissance UAV was detected at high altitude over Snake Island of the U.S. Air Force at high altitudes near Snake Island. The Kyiv regime made another attempt to capture the island. Missile and artillery attacks at Snake Island were launched by Ukrainian Tochka-U ballistic missiles, Uragan multiple rocket launchers and M777 155-mm howitzers from their combat positions to the west from Odessa and in Kubansky island. The plan disembarkation of troops on the island. d by the Kiev regime supposed to launch massive air and artillery attacks at Snake Island, to disembark troops and capture it. 13 UAVs, 4 Tochka-U missiles and 21 projectiles of Uragan multiple rocket launcher were destroyed by Russian forces. No troops were able to disembark and occupy the island.

The attack was used to lure Russian aircraft into the area, with the idea of shooting them down with S-300s. Once activated, the S-300s were detected and destroyed by the Russian airforce.[274]

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

By late April 2022 in the territory of Moldova, warehouses of military uniforms and shoes, NATO army rations and other auxiliary military equipment were being hastily created and filled from abroad. But not weapons depots. There is no need to import weapons, since when Moldova is occupied by the Romanian army, the latter will "come with everything of its own".[275] 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.[276] 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,[277] 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."[278]

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.


NATO attack on transmission towers, April 25, 2002.

On April 25, 2022 the State Security building and two Russian language broadcast facilities were bombed.[279] 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.

Russian Ambassador attacked on Victory Day with fake blood while laying a wreath at the monument to Russian war dead who liberated Poland from the Nazis. The head of the Russian State Duma commented "such actions may lead to the fact that the ambassadors will no longer be needed."[280]

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.[281] 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.'[282] 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.[283]

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.[284]

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.

On May 18, 2022 Maurycy Hawranek, an Administrator of published this:

"Independent freedom portal from Poland was censored preventively contrary to Article 54 of the Polish Constitution. The pro-Ukrainian government does not allow criticism of the Ukrainian propaganda and the government's policy. After 15 years of activity for freedom of speech, the owner of the portal encountered brutal censorship by the state security police. He has not received a decision on censorship or information on how to appeal. The Polish law does not allow for an appeal. The secret list of censored sites is growing. Sites in the .pl domain are disabled, and portals with international domains are blocked by Polish telecoms in DNS. They can be read from abroad, via VPN, Tor, proxy gateways or by changing the Polish DNS to a foreign one. Ordinary people do not know about this. ... Is the promotion of a Polish-Ukrainian union in the media to mask a secret capitulation? Has Poland become a colony of Ukraine? The Polish parliament displays the flag of Ukraine in the place of the host country and the Polish flag in the place of a guest. Some offices have swapped the flags of Poland for those of Ukraine..,.."[285]

While attending the World Economic Forum (WEF) President Andrzej Duda accused Germany of breaking its word to re-supply Poland with new tanks as compensation for Polish deliveries of Soviet-era tanks to Ukraine. In an interview with Die Welt Duda said Germany has "not fulfilled this promise. And frankly, we are very disappointed about this....We have provided Ukraine with a large number of tanks … because we believe it is our responsibility as a neighbor,” Duda said, referring to reports that Warsaw handed at least 240 Soviet-era tanks to the Ukrainian military. “By doing so, we depleted our own military potential and stockpiles."[286]

Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski told Gazeta Polska in an interview on June 15, 2022, "the defeat of the West, primarily America, in Ukraine will be something more serious than Vietnam, not to mention Afghanistan."[287] On June 21, 2022 Kaczynski, the "puppet master" of the Duda regime, quit further weakening the regime.


On March 10, 2022 a document emerged of Poland's plan to occupy Ukraine with 9,500 soldiers and further partition the country.[288]

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.

Polish armored vehicles being transported to border for invasion of Ukraine, May 2022.

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.[289] This document was published online by the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry.[290] 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.[291]

On May 3, 2022, Polish President Andrzej Duda said in a nationally televised speech,[292]

"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."[293]

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."[294]

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.[295]

On June 15, 2022 Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko warned the Polish NATO regime that if it invaded Ukraine, Belarus would intervene.[296] "We cannot allow Poland to encircle us," the president said.


Hundreds of Lithuanians raised 5.9 million euros to purchase a Turkish made Bayraktar drone for Ukraine.[297] The Lithuania military then signed a deal with the Turkish arms manufacturer for purchase of the drone.[298] In return, the Turkish arms manufacturer gifted a Bayraktar drone to the Lithuanian military.[299]

In violation of a longstanding treaty in perpetuity, Lithuania cut off rail traffic of critical materials to the Russian federal territory of Kaliningrad.[300] Lithuanian state-owned company “Lithuania Railways” implemented the ban. Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis highlighted Lithuania's loss of sovereignty in dealing with other nations since joining NATO and the EU: "This is not a Lithuanian decision. These are European sanctions that came into force on June 17, and the railways are now applying the sanctions”.[301] The Russian foreign ministry said: ‘We consider provocative measures of the Lithuanian side which violate Lithuania’s international legal obligations, primarily the 2002 Joint Statement of the Russian Federation and the European Union on transit between the Kaliningrad region and the rest of the Russian Federation, to be openly hostile.’[302]

The EU action violates international law. There is no trade or sanctions violation involved in the internal transportation and trade of goods within the same nation state. Furthermore, there is no law that allows arbitrary sanctions to override existing international treaties.

On June 22, 2022 the EU escalated the crisis by blocking off transport of goods by road.


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.[303] The same day, four days before the NATO terrorist attack on Transnistria, the U.S. State Department issued a travel advisory for Moldova.[304]

Russian Victory Day Parade in Moldova, May 9, 2022 as NATO fascists prepared invasion.[305]

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.[306]

On May 21, 2022 UK foreign minister Liz Truss said Moldova should be armed to NATO standards.[307]

Former president Igor Dodon, who advocated neutrality, was arrested and detained by the Chisinau regime. Dodon is opposed to the regime's policy vis-a-vis NATO aggression in Black Sea region. Peaceful protests were held outside the parliament building demanding the release of Dodon and an end to persecution of political opponents.

French President Emmanuel Macron promised to double the defense budget of Moldova. For this purpose, 40 million euros were allocated from the European Defense Fund.


On November 26, 2019, according to Radio Liberty, NATO "showed off" its Aegis Ashore nuclear missile system in Romania.[308]

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.[309]

On May 25, 2022 The Romanian Ministry of Defense announced that France would deploy a special air defense unit in Romania at the Capu-Midia military base in the Constanta district.[310]

On May 26, 2022 Polish military equipment was spotted in the Romanian town of Brielle. The town is located near the Ukrainian and Moldovan borders. In addition, Polish troops have been spotted on the border between Romania and Moldova.


Furthest Nazi expansion.[311] Ukraine became a NATO protectorate in 2014; Finland was added in 2022.

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.[312] 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[313] - the same language Russia used to warn Ukraine against joining NATO two months before the Russian incursion into Ukraine.[314] Turkish President Recep Erdoğan warned that "Scandinavian countries are 'guesthouses' for terrorist organizations."[315]

On May 28, 2022 NATO warships arrived in Finland.[316] On June 7, 2022 NATO threatened to deploy nuclear weapons in Finland and blamed the host country for the decision to do so.[317]


Disputed Aegean Islands by NATO allies Greece and Turkiye.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine positioned 420 World War II-era sea mines anchored to weighted boxes on the Black Sea bed to deter amphibius landing craft to the approaches of the ports of Odessa, Ochikov and Chernomorsk. A Black Sea storm caused many to break free of their securing cables and bob to the surface, drifting south with the prevailing currents. The mines arrived in Romanian and Turkish coastal waters, posing a threat to commercial shipping and human life. In early March 2022 an Estonian general cargo ship was at anchor when it was hit below the water line by a large explosion. Six crewmen were rescued but the ship sank. One mine caused a temporary closure of the Bosphorus Straight.

Turkiye closed the Bosphorus to NATO warships, including minesweepers. Minister of Defense Hulusi Akar said, “We have a suspicion that the mines were deliberately introduced. Perhaps they were fired as part of some plan to put pressure on us in order to let NATO minesweepers [through the straits] into the Black Sea. But we are committed to the rules of the Montreux [Convention] and do not let warships enter the Black Sea."[318] Meanwhile U.S. socialist premier Joe Biden bragged of NATO unity.[319] Turkiye has been a member of NATO since 1952.

Turkish president Recep Erdogan stated on June 9, 2022 that many of the Aegean islands claimed by NATO ally Greece were indeed Turkish and need to be demilitarised.[320] The Greek government responded on June 14, 2022 by publishing 16 maps seeking to demonstrate and explain the revisionist nature of Turkish assertions and actions concerning the islands from 1973 until 2022. [321]

Western journalists were criticized for their racism while reporting on the refugee migration from Ukraine. While Arab refugees were villainized and arrested, Ukrainians were welcomed with lavish benefits.[322] Western reporters said they are "Europeans with blue eyes and blonde hair" and from a "civilized" country.[323] The European Union was also criticized for welcoming displaced Ukrainians but holding back Syrians and other refugees since 2015. The Ukrainians were being offered visas and benefits, while Syrian refugees were still sleeping in tents. Critics called it a blatant double standard.[324]

A group 30-40 child refugees disappeared between the Ukraine and the Canary Islands raising fears they may have become victims of Western child sex trafficers.[325] Ukrainian girl refugees have been exploited in the West in the organized sex trade.[326]

The UK Guardian reported UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson saying on June 23, 2022 that Ukrainian refugees could be deported to Rwanda.[327]

Economic war

On March 24, 2022 BlackRock CEO Larry Fink said that Ukraine war spells end of globalization.[328]

Ukrainian forces mining their own harbors, restricting export of grain. February 2022.

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.[329] The Ruble strengthened even more against the euro. Russia profited from the American and EU sanctions,[330] 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.

Ukraine, with strategic consultation from NATO, mined its own Black Sea harbors, impeding Ukraine's shipments of grain to the world.

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.

Meanwhile, the United States and European Union fell into a self-inflicted economic recession with inflation, food supply and gas shortages.

Foreign bond holders of Russian debt instruments were forced to sue the Biden junta because the junta refused to allow the Russian government to make interest payments to the bondholders in dollars.

Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev in a message on social media about Western sanctions said:

"these sanctions are directed specifically against the people of Russia...And no matter what the American and European leaders say about their claims of 'punishing your bosses', and 'we love you, common citizens' - this is pure nonsense...They hate us all!...At the heart of these decisions is hatred towards Russia - and its people...Hatred towards our culture - hence the attempt to cancel Tolstoy, Chekhov, Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich...Hatred for our religion - hence the desire to destroy the Russian Orthodox Church and impose sanctions against its patriarch...And it has always been this way."[331]

A new G8 was created consisting of non-Western countries whose economies were not collapsing as a result of the Western self-imposed sanctions against Russia. The member countries are Brazil, China, India, Russia, Indonesia, Iran, Turkey and Mexico.

The Hill reported on June 15, 2022 that Biden regime officials admitted Russian sanctions didn't work To stop Putin, worsened inflation and food insecurity, and punished ordinary people.[332]


American and European sanctions on Russian fertilizer exports killed global food production for the 2022 growing season.[333] Russian and Belarusian fertilizers account for 40% of potash-based fertilizers necessary for global food production. The sanctions took effect for the 2022 spring planting season in the northern hemispheres. The President of Senegal and Chairperson of the African Union. Macky Sall said, "Anti-Russia sanctions have made this situation worse and now we do not have access to grain from Russia, primarily to wheat. And, most importantly, we do not have access to fertilizer. The situation was bad and now it has become worse, creating a threat to food security in Africa.... We must work together to resolve these problems so that sanctions are lifted on food products, in particular, grain, and fertilizer.[334]

African Union members cannot buy fertilizers and grain because of the stranglehold America has on the international payment system through the SWIFT network of payments between international banks. An alternative payment system to by-pass the SWIFT network is being considered, lowering the demand for and value of dollars globally.

In a panic the Biden regime encouraged agricultural and shipping companies to buy and carry more Russian fertilizer when faced with famine and mass starvation after imposing sanctions on Russia, Bloomberg News reported.[335]


On February 7, 2022 Michael Hudson, a research professor of Economics at University of Missouri, Kansas City, wrote:

"The only way left for U.S. diplomats to block European purchases [of Russian gas] is to goad Russia into a military response and then claim that avenging this response outweighs any purely national economic interest. As hawkish Under-Secretary of State for Political Affairs, Victoria Nuland, explained in a State Department press briefing on January 27 [2022]: “If Russia invades Ukraine one way or another Nord Stream 2 will not move forward.” The problem is to create a suitably offensive incident and depict Russia as the aggressor.[336]

Propaganda war

See also: Ukrainian propaganda war
NBC News reported U.S. 'intelligence' were using dubious reports even when the source was questionable.[337]

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.

The incidents are too numerous to list (and many more are available at the above See also link), including deliberate war crimes committed by the Ukrainian government against its own citizens to blame on the Russian forces for global propaganda purposes.

On June 16, 2022 Presidents Emmanuel Macron of France, Olaf Scholz of Germany, Mario Draghi of Italy, and Klaus Iohannis of Romania travelled to Kyiv to present an alternative view to Volodymyr Zelensky for peace and negotiations versus the warmongering view of NATO escalation advocated by Boris Johnson and Joe Biden. The racist Western media however, ignored Iohannis's presence and reported only on the three white presidents.[338]

Bucha massacre

Evidence points to the Security Service of Ukraine, in conjunction with UK MI6, having committed the Bucha massacre.[339]

Western coverup

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.

SBU special forces with Cyrillic СБУ acronym brutalizing civilians, April 2, 2022.[340]

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.[341] 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.”[342]

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.

Chemical weapons

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.

On September 27, 2017, OPCW announced that Russia had destroyed its entire chemical weapons stockpile.[343][344][345]

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.[346]

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.[347] 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,[348] 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."

Nonetheless the fake news about Russia plotting a chemical weapons attack can be traced back to the mouth of White House chief propagandist Jen Psaki.[349]

On April 11, 2022 Western-backed Nazi remnants hopelessly trapped in the Azovstal steel plant broadcast details of an alleged chemical weapons attack.[350] This 'red line' that Russophobic hardliners in the West vowed would bring about NATO intervention was largely ignored by Western media and governments.

Mariupol Drama theater

Mariupol Drama Theater with Azovstal in the far background.

About 500 civilians were herded into the Mariupol Drama Theater by Ukrainian forces and away from their homes and apartments where bomb shelters existed, with the promise that the theater was being used as a pick-up point for evacuation from the city by bus. Once inside, the theater exploded from a bomb hidden in its lower levels, killing about 350 civilians. Ukrainian and Western propaganda tried to blame the explosion on the Russian armed forces, however eyewitness survivors attest to the mass murders being committed by the Zelensky regime.[351]

The drama theater was being used as an ammunition storage dump by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Ukrainian forces and all their vehicles left the scene minutes before the explosion. Investigators established the deaths were caused by an explosion from within the depths of the building, and not from an outside aerial bombing or artillery shelling. The night of the explosion, there was no Russian aerial bombing or artillery shelling.

Kramatorsk railway station attack

The Tochka-U fired at the Kramatorsk train station bore a serial number attributable to Ukrainian weapons stocks.[352]

Western media coverage of the Tochka-U missile attack at a railway station in Kramatorsk that killed over fifty people and injured more than one hundred were initially widely reported, with images on front pages across the Western media. However, within forty-eight hours the story had disappeared and barely received a mention. This was due to an Italian news team identifying one of the missiles as being of the type used by Ukrainian forces with the serial number matching one listed in the Ukraine army's inventory stocks. The narrative of Ukrainians killing civilians obviously didn’t fit into the propaganda of the Collective West, and consequently, the dead and injured found instant irrelevance.[353]

Alexiy Arestovich

Alexiy Arestovich, who was commonly known as 'the Baghdad Bob' of Kyiv, gave daily press briefings on the war and whose facts were indiscriminately accepted at face value and repeated wholesale as the gospel by Western media throughout the planet. Arestovich has been described by his critics as a "psychopath, gay, egocentric and drug addict Zelensky adviser."[354] Here is a small sampling of some of his press pronouncements.

On April 17, 2022 Arestovich said about the situation in Mariupol:

Senior advisor to Volodymyr Zelensky, Alexei Arestovich, in drag here as "Lyusya".[355]
"Zelensky said today that if the defenders of Mariupol die, then Ukraine will withdraw from negotiations with Russia. Then a completely different period will begin – Ukraine will dictate the terms and will fight until the last Russian scumbag dies. Russia will have nothing to respond to, they have a crisis and a catastrophe."

Arestovich was enraged by a proposal from Italy, Hungary, and Cyprus presented to United Nations General Secretary Antonio Guterres for an immediate ceasefire and for peace talks to begin[356] as the Donbas cauldron was slammed shut and 15,000 troops faced annihilation: "Go f*** yourselves with such proposals, you dumb f****."[357] Arestovich threatened to arrange an "exemplary hysteria" for the United States if Biden would not provide multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) to Ukraine.[358] Some translations read, "throw a tantrum", others read a "model tantrum."

Mass rape

Lyudmyla Denisova, the Ukrainian Parliament's Commissioner for Human Rights, was fired when no evidence could be found of her allegations of 400 instances of mass rape by Russian soldiers.[359] 238 Members of Parliament voted her out. Denisova was accused of failing to perform her duties and in particular of spreading fake news and propaganda about atrocities supposedly committed by Russian troops in Ukraine. Such actions only served to tarnish Ukraine’s image, MPs have argued. Other complaints were that Denisova had failed to organize humanitarian corridors and POW exchanges.[360]

The fake news stories stemming from high ranking Ukrainian officials were widely disseminated by TIME magazine, CNN, Newsweek and other fake news sources.[361]


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.[362]

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov comment during Q & A at the Leaders of Russia Management Competition, Moscow, March 19, 2022.[363]

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?"[364]

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,[365] 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."[366] 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.[367]

European Union

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.[368] 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."[369]

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.[370] Borrell appeared to be encouraging Ukrainian forces to continue fighting in a lost cause to perpetuate more needless slaughter.

The EU withheld money that is owed to Hungary from a massive slush fund created by higher taxation and printing more euros implemented during the CCP global pandemic to deal with the covid lockdowns. The funds were supposed to be dished out to member states. The EU withheld the funds to Hungary, as well as to Poland, citing Article 7 rule saying that Hungary and Poland are going "against EU values," specifically anti-child grooming laws.

Radoslaw Sikorski, a member of the EU parliament and former Foreign and Defense Minister in Poland, a political enemy of the conservatives now in government, suggested that the West should arm Ukraine with nuclear weapons.[371]


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.[372]

NATO has been accused of lawlessness and war crimes in the post-Cold War period, particularly in the Kosovo and Libyan wars.

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.[373] 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.[374]

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.'”[375]

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 March 28, 2022 Yahoo News reported that NATO was conducting combat exercises on the Belarusian border.[376]

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.[377] Ukrainian National Security Council Oleksiy Danilov denied any Ukrainian involvement.[378] 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.[379] Russia sent a formal demarche to Washington, D.C. warning the United States to stop arming Ukraine or face "unpredictable consequences."[380]

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 anti-tank missile, are too complicated and fail in use.[381] Video evidence and eyewitness testimony claim that Russian tanks were hit six and seven times with Javelins which merely bounced off. Ukrainian soldiers felt it wasn't worth risking their lives with this much vaunted weapon only to be exposed and defenseless in the end. The Italian newspaper Il Giornale reported that military-grade weaponry in Ukraine was allegedly being sold 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.[382]

On May 20, 2022 Italy presented a four-point peace plan to United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres to end the conflict in Ukraine.[383] The final point makes it plain that the EU and other nations would struggle to survive without Russian gas and oil.[384]

NATO delivery of weapons was likened to "clearing off the shelves of a day-old bakery shop." With newer, more sophisticated Wunderwaffen, there wasn't enough time for months and months of training. Ukrainian troops tried googling for instructions how to use them.

United States

Hunter Biden, who was paid over $4 million from a corrupt Ukrainian oil and gas firm, arranged funding for, and is a stockholder in, the largest contractor operating US bioweapons laboratories in Ukraine which Russia deems a national security threat.[385]

The United States owns and operates biological laboratories in Ukraine.[386][387] An agreement to operate the laboratories was signed in 2005.[388] On March 21, Joe Biden announced a second "new world order"[389] 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.[390] Deputy Leonid Slutsky, who is a member of the committee, issued a statement:

Cover page of the Buffalo, New York supermarket shooter's manifesto with Ukrainian neo-Nazi Azov regiment logo.[391]
"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.[392]

Metabiota, a company financed by Hunter Biden's Rosemont Seneca partnership with the CCP, receives the lion's share of Defense Department funding for its Ukrainian bio labs.[393]

Gen. Paul Nakasone told Sky News that United States military hackers conducted offensive operations in support of Ukraine: "We've conducted a series of operations across the full spectrum; offensive, defensive, [and] information operations."[394]

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 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.[395] 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.[396] 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.[397]

CNN reported on April 19, 2022 that US officials have no way to keep track of weapons deliveries to Ukraine. Officials said, "It drops into a big black hole, and you have almost no sense of it at all after a short period of time."[398] The vaunted Javelin missile which cost the US taxpayer $175,000 per unit,[399] was being sold on the black market in Idlib for $15,000 by the end of May 2022.[400]

On April 26, 2022 Biden defense minister Lloyd Austin met with defense heads from 30 nations at Ramstein Air Base in Germany;[401] weeks later Ramstein Airbase announced, "We’re celebrating Pride Month at the Ramstein Library with Drag Queen Storytime! Be sure to wear your brightest and most colorful outfits!”[402]

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.[403]

On May 16, the United States committed an act of aggression and invaded Somalia with US. troops.

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."[404]

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.[405]

On June 1, 2022 Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told RIA Novosti news that Biden's decision to arm Ukraine with HIMAR missile launchers increases the risk of direct confrontation between Russia and the United States.[406] The U.S. also promised to intervene in the conflict by providing active real time targeting intelligence. Blinken said the weapons, which have a precision range of up to 300 kilometers, were given on the pretext of a promise by Zelensky not to use the HIMARs against Russian territory. However Zelensky's chief propagandist Alexie Arestovich immediately threatened, "Crimea is ours…It belongs to Ukraine…And they know it…Therefore, it will fly to Crimea double-time."[407] Ukrainian General Dmytro Marchenko said the Crimean Bridge over the Kerch Strait would be the number 1 target for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

After Biden called Putin a killer and publicly called for his ouster, NBC News reported on June 16, 2022 that Biden instructed Blinken and Austin to tone down the Russophobic rhetoric.[408]

On June 21, 2022 the United States Navy released a bizarre training video urging recruits to create pronoun "safe space."[409]


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."[410] 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.[412]

In March 2016 retired Canadian soldier Oksana Kuzyshyn spoke at an event titled “A Canadian’s experience training the AZOV Battalion to NATO standards”.[413] 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.[414]

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,[415] which said it was “defending the values of white, Christian Europe against the loss of the nation and deregionalisation.”[416] 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.

Justin Trudeau meeting with neo-Nazi party founder Andriy Parubiy.[417]

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.[418]

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."[419]

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.[420] 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.[421]

United Kingdom

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.[422]

Ukrainian commanders told The Times of London that soldiers from Britain’s Special Air Service (SAS) trained Ukrainian troops in Kyiv.[423]

While Ukraine was losing 20,000 soldiers a month, Boris Johnson travelled to Kyiv to promise training for 10,000 soldiers every four months.[424]

On June 19, 2022 Commander of UK Strategic Command Gen. Thomas Patrick wrote to the UK Royal Army troops, "There is now an urgent need to forge an army capable of fighting alongside our allies and defeating Russia in battle. We are the generation that must prepare the Army to fight in Europe once again. There is now a burning imperative to forge an Army capable of fighting alongside our allies and defeating Russia in battle."[425]


The Ukrainian Joan of Arc, according to Elle fashion magazine, was arrested in connection with the murder of two Kyiv police officers in May 2022.[426]

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.[427] 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.[428]

Public broadcaster France-Télévision presented a report on during the France-2 evening news, on March 31, 2022.[429] 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,[430] 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. [431]

On May 10, 2022 Macron, speaking to the European Parliament in Strasbourg, quashed Ukrainian ambitions to join the EU, proposing instead a "new European political community" open to non-member states like Ukraine, adding that it may take "several decades" for Kyiv to fully realize its EU ambitions.[432]

On May 19, 2022, during a visit to Romania, Macron commented on NATO provocations against Transnistria: “The recent incidents in Transnistria show that we cannot exclude that the conflict will spread to neighboring countries," and that France “intends to keep a special eye on the regional security situation and any possible encroachment on Moldova’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

In preparation for ground war in Europe, France withdrew all remaining troops from Mali by May 27, 2022;[433] Biden order troops back to Africa to pick up the slack which President Trump had withdrawn.[434]

On June 23, 2022 French journalist, lawyer and politician Régis de Castelnaud reported that two of the twelve vaunted CEASAR self-propelled Howitzers reputed to be among the most advanced in the world that were delivered to Ukraine, already fell into Russian hands and have been sent to a Russian manufacturing plant to be reversed engineered.[435][436][437] Unconfirmed reports indicated that one had possibly been sold to the Russians by Ukrainians.


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.[438]

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,

NATO propaganda to dehumanize Russians.
“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."[439]

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.[440] 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.[441]

Russian military troll fascist Western countries that banned the letter "Z" by wearing the entire Latin alphabet. Ironically, the letter "Z" does not exist in the Russian alphabet.

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.”[442]

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.[443] Berlin is officially supplying weapons and training to a regime that upholds Nazi ideology.

In a speech at the Bundestag on May 19, 2022, Scholz said he was against granting Ukraine a "shortcut" to join the bloc out of fairness to six Balkan countries which have been waiting to join for years. "French President Emmanuel Macron is right to stress that the accession process is not a matter of a few months or a few years." In response, the white supremacist regime in Kyiv complained it was getting "second-class treatment" by having to take a back seat to the people of the Balkans.[444]

On May 25, 2022 Politico reported that Germany was "flabbergasted" by accusations from Polish President Andrzej Duda that Germany had broken its promise to resupply Poland with tanks after Poland's delivery to Ukraine of 240 Soviet era tanks. A government spokesman said, “There was a clear request from the Polish side to transfer state-of-the-art Leopard 2A7 main battle tanks to Poland, but the problem is that the Bundeswehr itself only has a small number — about 50 — of these tanks,” adding that while “more are in the pipeline....they have to be manufactured.”[445]

Sleepwalking into war

Hans-Georg Maassen, who headed Germany’s Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, Germany’s domestic security agency from 2012 to 2018, warned his fellow citizens on May 25, 2022 that Germany was “sleepwalking” into war with Russia. Maassen cited on TV Berlin’s ‘Special’ program a ruling by the International Court of Justice that the supply of weapons to one of the warring parties in a conflict makes the supplier a party to the conflict, too.

The former intelligence chief argued that, contrary to what the German media says, “Ukraine is not a bastion of human rights, of freedom, peace and Western values.” Massen was terrified by the lack of public discussion on this issue, telling viewers:

"We are now a warring party on Ukraine’s side. Let that sink in: We are a warring party. Against Russia."[446]


Russia’s actions were implemented upon the limited legal authorities granted to Vladimir Putin by the Russian Duma, or parliament, which limits Russia’s force structure to what can be assembled under peacetime conditions. Any large-scale force mobilization of Russian military operations in Ukraine would require an act by Duma. Additional resources would have to authorized by the Duma if the Ukrainian conflict were to spread to Poland, Transnistria, Finland and Sweden.


Carl Gershman, former head to the CIA's regime change arm the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), openly admitted to the NED's role behind unrest and subversion in Belarus.[447]

In December 2020 it was reported that the Autukhovich terrorist gang had training camps in Ukraine.

On March 15, 2022 Belarus was hit with an organized sabotage campaign aimed at railroad lines carrying Russian troops and humanitarian supplies into Ukraine.[448]

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 May 26, 2022 Belarusian armed forces plan to immediately create a southern operational command on the border with Ukraine

On June 5, 2022 China accused Canada and Australia of provocative acts and intelligence gathering in two separate aerial incidents. The encounter with the Canadian surveillance plane occurred in the North China Sea off the coast of North Korea on May 26, 2022; the encounter with the Australian surveillance plane occurred in the South China Sea.

On June 13, 2022 PRC Minister of National Defense Wei Fenghe in a face-to-face meeting with Biden regime defense minister Lord Austin at the Shangri-La Dialogue security summit in Singapore told Austin,

"Let me make this clear: If anyone dares to split Taiwan from China, the Chinese army will definitely not hesitate to start a war no matter the cost and we will fight to the very end."[458]
While the tension in the world was accelerating, it was revealed that the CCP had already deployed two intercontinental ballistic missiles aimed at the US, one targeted at Washington, D.C. and the other at Texas. In the meantime, the CCP’s plan to use its high-speed trains travelling at 220 MPH disguised as passenger trains to carry nuclear missiles could put 1,000 nuclear warheads within reach of Western cities.[459]

Solomon Islands

African Union

The African Union, which was targeted in a NATO war of aggression in 2011 in an attempt to split it apart and decapitate elements of its leadership, has remained neutral. South Africa, one of the BRICS countries, refuses to cooperate with NATO's war on Russia. In early June 2022, Algeria, an oil exporting country, suspended its two-decade old friendship treaty with NATO aligned Spain.[460]

Africans in Burkina Faso ask for Russia's help to throw French forces out of the country.[461]

After a coup in the nation Burkina Faso, residents demanded that Russia intervene and throw the French out.[462]

In a virtual address to the African Union in June 2022, only 4 of 55 heads of state showed up to hear Ukrainian dictator Volodymyr Zelensky appeal for support and help. One was Denis Sassou Nguesso of Congo whose presence was necessary for the meeting to take place as the current rotating chair of the African Union. Nguesso recently visited Vladimir Putin in Moscow and pledged Congolese support and cooperation. Another was the head of the Libyan-NATO client state, installed in 2013 after NATO's war of aggression against sovereign state of Libya. So the net total African heads of state who showed up to hear Zelensky's spiel was two. There has been a strong wave of popular support for Russia's operation in Ukraine from citizens across Africa, especially in regions most affected by terrorism. After the abandonment that Africa has suffered from the West in terms of security and defense cooperation, seeking Russian support has become the greatest hope for the members of the African Union. The Zelensky regime is exporting grain to the United States and Western Europe in exchange for weapons, by-passing Africa and aggravating the threat of famine.

Organization of American States

Mexico, Brazil, Bolivia, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and St. Vincent have refused to cooperate with American and Western neo-colonialist interests against Russia and Eastern Europe. Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said of Biden's actions, "we see it as the old policy of interventionism, lack of respect for nations, and their people.”[463] President Obrador said of NATO policy towards Ukraine is like saying “I’ll supply the weapons, and you supply the dead. It is immoral.”[464]

Gulf Cooperation Council

The Gulf Arab States, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, and Kuwait refused to support Western sanctions on Russia. The UAE invited Russian investment into the country after the banning and persecution of Russians in NATO countries and the European Union.
