DPR Troops Take Control Of Mariupol Airport. Russia Reveals Epic POV Video Of Helicopter Operation Near Kyiv

Click to see the full-size image

During the day of March 18, street fighting continued in the city of Mariupol, which is fully encircled by the joint forces of Russia and the DPR. After taking control of Levoberejie (Left Bank) District of the city in its eastern part, Russian-led forces established control over Mariupol Airport in the southwestern part of the city. Clashes are also ongoing in the northwestern part of the city, around the city center.

The industrial area of Azovstal currently remains one of the last real strongholds of Kyiv’s forces, including detachments of the Neo-Nazi ‘Azov battalion’ in Mariupol.

Strike on the area of Azovstal:

In the sector to the east of Donetsk city, DPR troops supported by the Russian Armed Forces are still storming the defense line of Kyiv’s forces in Maryinka, Avdiivka and Verkhnetoretskoe.

In the area north of Ugledar, Russian troops are advancing towards the southern flank of Kyiv troops deployed in Maryinka. The Russians took control of Zolotaya Niva and secured most of the Ugledar-Velikaya Novoselka road.

At the same time, LPR troops continued eliminating Ukrainian forces in Severodonetsk after the liberation of the town of Rubezhnoe near it. Clashes were also reported around Popasnaya.

In the region of Mykolaiv, the Russians were conducting an operation to block Mykolaiv city from the northern direction. The current aim is to cut off the northern road towards Noavaya Odessa.

In the northeast of Ukraine, fighting is reported near Kharkov city and in the Izum area (in the southern part of the region).

Fighting is ongoing east of Kharkov and around Izyum. The  town of Izum still remains contested. Nonetheless, reports suggest that the Russians already cut off the road south of it (towards Slovyansk). If these reports are confirmed, this will mean that the fate of the group of Kyiv’s forces in Izum is predetermined.

There were no major changes of the situation around such cities as Kyiv, Chernihiv and Sumy. Nonetheless, videos and photos from these areas demonstrate that the Russians are mostly working to entrench themselves around them.

Russian battle tanks are near Kyiv:

Another Ukrainian surface-to-air missile fell in the residential area. MSM will soon report ‘Russian strikes’ there:

On March 18, the Russian military announced that its forces had conducted a strike with two Iskander missiles at Tochka-U ballistic missiles of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the area around Melitopol city.

Last night, the Ukrainian Armed Forces launched Tochka-U missiles with cluster-warheads on the residential areas of Melitopol city. The attack was from the northern direction, the south-eastern outskirts of Zaporizhzhia. The attack was repelled by Russian air defense forces.

“The subsequent application of ballistic missiles against civilian residents by the Kiev regime whose representatives knew about the absence of Russian Armed Forces firing positions in residential areas of Melitopol proves the criminal nature of the nationalist leadership of Ukraine,” the defense ministry said.

Additionally, Russian forces carried out a new strike on the military infrastructure of Ukraine. The strikes hit a facility with Ukrainian combat aircraft at the aircraft repair plant in the city of Lviv, as well as ammunition depots and Ukrainian military equipment in the suburbs of Mykolaiv and Voznesensk.

During the day, Russian operational-tactical, army and unmanned aircraft hit 54 military facilities of Ukraine. This includes three command posts, four installations of multiple launch rocket systems, four ammunition depots and 44 places of gathering of military equipment.

According to the Russian side, since the start of the military operation, Russian forces have destroyed 184 unmanned aerial vehicles, 1,412 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 142 multiple rocket launchers, 542 field artillery and mortars, and 1,211 units of special military vehicles.

The Russian military also reported that it has obtained reliable information that in Dnepropetrovsk (Dnipro) employees of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) mined one of the buildings of the city hospital Number 2 on Nigoyan Street. SBU members are going to blew up the building during the flight of “any Russian aircraft” over Dnepropetrovsk.

Meanwhile, the Russian Defense Ministry continues to reveal details of the epic helicopter landing operation at Hostomel Airfield near Kyiv that took place on February 24 and allowed to take control of this facility.

The Russian Defense Ministry (link):

The crews of a rotorcraft attack group have conducted a tactical landing operation at one of the Ukrainian military airfields. The group of Ka-52 and Mi-24 attack helicopters has destroyed the firing positions of the man-portable air defense system (MANPAD) operators, air defence missile systems and armoured vehicles of the Ukrainian Armed Forces around the perimeter of the airfields.

The attack was being conducted by missile and fire armament mounted on the helicopters in various manoeuvres that facilitated the safe tactical landing at the airfield.

The army aviation crews had promptly detected the camouflaged air defence systems and MANPAD positions hidden behind civilian vehicles. The pilots of the Russian Aerospace Forces have completely destroyed the air defence system of the airfield by using organic air ordnance.

The commander of the leading Ka-52 helicopter attacked by an intensive MANPAD fire has covered the group of Mi-8 helicopters by drawing the shelling to his vehicle.

The leading helicopter has been shelled 18 times by MANPAD and air defence systems from the ground. After being damaged, the crew carried out a precautionary landing and organised a perimeter defence holding it until the arrival of the second rotorcraft attack group despite the continuous attack held by the units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

The crew of the damaged helicopter did not get hurt and was evacuated to the main airfield of the second rotorcraft attack group.

Thanks to the courage and heroism of the main attack group formed by Ka-52 and Mi-24 helicopters, the landing operation of the Airborne Troops units has been conducted without loss.

Uuuh ukropbots I don’t feel so good. Mariupol is our most armed and best defended stronghold. Now that it’s practically over, what are we going to do? i-its time for the false flag chemical attack isn’t it?

BabylonGardens

Last time the Ukrainian forces were in real trouble in eastern sector, the MH-17 event happened…

The Malaysian’s were all but excluded from the ‘investigation’ by EU, because EU claimed they much better than Asians at this sort of thing (blatant use of racism to dismiss the inconvenient non-NATO involved major party)! Suffice to say EU ‘investigation’ decided the exact outcome and blame shifting that NATO had decreed.

Absent from this report is the capture of one Nazi Medic. I forgot her name. Evidently she did not want to go down with the rest of the boys at the Chemical plant. She wants to live to instagram once again.

Also absent from the SF report is the suicidal relief effort of Mariupol by the UAF. 10 tanks and about 30 infranty is what they were able to scrounge up. They didn’t get far.

All the UAF is capable of at this point is terrorism by firing missiles at cities. They too are being eliminated.

Pathetic ukrobots.

BangderaSteponPutin

The Ukrainian armed forces don’t need to advance. All they need to do is keep fighting. They need to wear the Russian army out. Gradually deplete it’s vehicle base. Demoralize it’s soldiers. Exterminate it’s officer corps. This is already a war of attrition. Russia is unable to mount decisive attacks which breach Ukrainian lines and crush resistance. Ukraine is getting 7000 more javelins from the USA. That would mean that anything that moves and is Russian on Ukrainian territory can become a target for Javelin strikes. They can strike you from 3 km away. You won’t know what hit you. Javelins pack a heavy punch. They make a big hole. They blow tank tops off. They incinerate armored crews. Russians have only begun to die.

Wait til the Ukies try to move Uncle Sam’s goodies into the Ukraine. I bet the GRU will know times, routes and locations well in advance. And then BOOM!

Russia can resettle all the non russian population in Poland and create a giant no man land if a cease fire is non respected. It can also raze Kiev like it did in grozny and kill 15% of west ukraine population

Bring it on. Noto sends it we capture it and use it against the Nazi scum.

You are stuck in wrong war. This is hybrid war. It’s not the full scale combined arms of Russian Military operating in Ukraine. Its a ‘special operation’ – enough Russian military presence to knock out Ukrainian command and logistics, take the north cities and and to aid the Donetsk and Lugansk separatist armies fully take the south all way to Tranisnistria. The Russian Army is still in Russia – ready and waiting for full spectrum conventional or nuclear war with NATO.

Actually it is Poland, UK and US who are braying for more violence. The US controls Zelensky and refuse to allow him to negotiate ANY terms of surrender. Zelensky does what he is told, and will eventually end up being evacuated to new home in Israel.

Also what the heck is that helicopter video. I thought the ghost of Kiev obliterated 6 million Russians that day and heroically defended the airfield? Was that fake propaganda too? Ukropbots…. I dont feel so good.

I only don’t understand why Russians didn’t publish this great video immediately, why waiting 3 weeks while Ukrops and their NATO masters using every opportunity for their dirty propaganda.

Thats a question that easy to answer. According to the Geneva Convention you have to treat POWs with dignity and respect. Even the dead. You are prohibited to post pics or videos on them. Since the west violated almost every single point of the Geneva Convention, Russia is a bit more relaxed about releasing videos about strikes.

Corrupt Shithole of Ukropisstan

Its also worth to mention that the Geneva Convention only protects civilians and Prisoners of War(regular armed forces). It doesn’t guarantee any protection to mercenaries and enemy combatants or terrorists. None whatsoever. Hope I was clear enough.

That heli landing at Ghostomel is something not even NATO has done. They must be watching and going like, damn these Russkies are good. A swam of attack helis made the most daring landing ever conducted in warfare against air defense systems and all kinds of MANPADs

Bring the Greek press in. Especially and perhaps exclusively Rizospastis and all others the KKE editors consider friendly and anti-Nazi. Mariupol is largely ethnic Greek.

Russia needs to keep up missile strikes on any military valuable targets in west Ukraine, to dissuade NATO from any bright ideas about entering into west Ukraine from Poland to occupy it.
