Media Battle For Azovstal And First Casualties

Ukrainian servicemen demand evacuation of civilians, wounded and dead militants

So far, about a hundred of civilians have been evacuated from the facilities of Azovstal in the city of Mariupol. As soon as they are in security, the warring sides launched informational campaigns on the issue. Civilians were filmed by the Azov militants when leaving their basements as well as by Russian media when they reached the village of Bezimennoe where they were treated by Russian forces, representatives of the UN and the Red Cross.

The truth may be found thanks to the testimonies of the victims,

 

Dozens of civilians from Azovstal were interrogated by the Russian side in the special centers for refugees established in the village of Bezimennoe. People confirmed that they were taken hostage. Some of them claimed that they were not aware of any humanitarian corridors. On the other hand, some of them claimed that the Azov militants assured the civilians that they could leave Azovstal, but Russian soldiers would not assure their security and might kill them. Such claims were blatant lies aimed to threaten the civilians and force them to stay in the basements, playing the role of human shields for Ukrainian militants.

At the same time, most of civilians confirm that Azov fighters were quite polite towards them, especially towards children. Ukrainian militants hided the fact that civilians were held hostage, assuring that they were under protection. However, some civilians claimed that they were asked to dig trenches and help the militants.

 

On the other hand, Azov militants filmed civilians during the evacuation, quickly asking some politically engaged questions. Civilians seem to be thankful to their “saviours”, claiming their desire to leave for the territory of Ukraine. Women claim that they are afraid of Russian soldiers who allegedly could not assure their security during the transportation to the Zaporizhia region.

In fact, the Russian military proclaimed that the civilians are free to choose any direction of their evacuation. So far, 69 civilians decided to leave for the territory controlled by the Kiev regime. They were handed over to representatives of the UN and the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the first column has arrived to the city of Zaporizhia. The others decided to stay in the Donetsk People’s Republic or to go to Russia.

One of the main idea of the informational campaign of the Ukrainian side is that the “brave” Azov fighters managed to pull the hundred of civilians out from the rubbles in the basements after the fierce bombardment of the Russian artillery and aviation. According to the representatives of the Azov regiment, there are still civilians left in the destroyed facilities.

However, as it is clearly seen on the videos from the spot, all civilians are safe, their clothes are clear enough and noone is seen having any wounds. Noone of civilians confirmed on the camera that their basements were destroyed and that the Azov militants saved them from debris. No footage showing the process supported the claims.

In a separate appeal, the Azov sources shared a photo and a video showing two women who were reportedly killed during the Russian attack. It is worth noting that the clothes of the dead are clear, while they were reportedly digged up from the debris.

The video shows the man who is more concerned of glorifying the Azov fighters then of mourning the dead. At the first glance it can be noted that he avoids looking in the camera. Two girls, whose faces are not shown and who are allegedly crying near the corpses are also seen on the video. It is also clear that the victims were killed likely hours before, but not right away.

 

The details of the incident are yet to be revealed.

It should not be excluded that Ukrainian militants may kill some of the civilians to hide the truth and support their lies.

The desperate attempts of the Ukrainian regime to whitewash the nationalist fighters is destroyed by their own lies. 

The fact that there are still civilians in Azovstal is yet to be confirmed. According to the claims of civilians, there were less then a hundred of them in the basements. However, they were reportedly held in different rooms so the numbers they claim are not precise.

Even in the case if there are still hostages in the facilities, the claims of the Azov militants are not aimed at saving their lives (if so the remnants would be evacuated days before), but only at postponing the assault or destruction of the Azovstal plant by Russian forces.

Following the traditional strategy of the Azov-styled propaganda, they will release more videos showing the remnants in the plant, which should be carefully verified. Today, the Russian military command is well avare of what is going on in the basements of the plant. If there are more civilians, then another ceasefire regime is likely to be proclaimed in the coming days.

 

Meanwhile, the Azovstal is another battlefield of the war in Ukraine. No ceasefire regime has been proclaimed for several days. The precise shelling on the firing points of the Azov militants continue.

On May 4, the commander of the Azov regiment, Denis Prokopenko, announced the breakthrough of Russian forces into the territory of the Azovstal plant. He said that the troops of Russia and the DPR broke through to the plant a day before, there are bloody battles and the situation is reportedly critical.

The Russian military sources on the spot confirmed that Russian and LPR forces opened fire in response to the fire from the plant. As a result, they managed to advance on the territory of the facilities and take control of some new positions, reinforcing the pressure on Ukrainian militants.

The increase of hostilities may mark the last days before the surrender of destruction of the grouping of Ukrainian nationalists in Azovstal.

Not in Azovstal, but at 10pm night in the middle of the Ukies in the Donbas region so all the surrounding Ukies could see it from 50 miles away. That would make an impression on them. Azovstal is finished, just left them either away, there is too much evidence there to totally destroy.

Given when/where that black screen appears in the video, seems they don’t want to block the “door” itself but what’s on it above the wheel. At 0:40-41 you can see a small part of it: an horizontal black line so maybe some kind of symbol. Could be the bottom left of a swastika or anything else, who knows, but why would they black out any basic factory stuff (like door number or such), weird…

The UN and the International Committee of the Red Cross with the RF evacuated civilians from the facilities of Azovstal in the city of Mariupol.

I remember the US/Turk-isis-stan and NATO trying to reach an agreement with RF to evacuate “civilians” and ofc Russia said NO to them for a reason.

It is also funny how morons think it is okay to have your fuking phone during a war. It really shows how bad the Ukraine Neo-Nazis are tho…

Few things… 1. The US main goal is clear as fuking water now – The US going to kill every fuking Ukrainanin to “weaken Russia”. No peace or anything – Ukraine going to get destroyed just to get Russia “weaker”. I’m not joking the old pigs (Biden Team/Zion) aren’t letting go – I did say the US is there for perpetual war and I wasn’t wrong, the US is also about to send 33 BILLION to Ukraine.

2. So, what have Russians been doing these past few days – a lot as of matter of fact, they circle Ukriananin left and right, it is going to take some time. As you might have also seen – yup RIP Neo-Nazis, they are getting pounded hard by Russian. It is a smart move by the Russians – they can pound Neo-Nazis morons without any problem and slowly take the ground. I’m going to say it now, Russia changes its operation plan due to the US plan – at the front lines Neo-Nazis are dying like flies and the lack of men from the Ukraine side shows that fact.

3. Who the fuk is still believing these apes? I’m going to laugh so hard when in a few years we hear MSM say shit like, “Billions of weapons/money to Ukraine went missing”. I hope Ukraine get free from these fuking evil satanic pigs, they got evil pigs behind their backs and a clownGayZion as their leader, god save them.

P.S. I’m looking forward to Russia victory day 9 May 2022.

Every single Ukrainian and every single other European. We’ve become a colonial demolition zone and all our “leaders” bow to the colonial master no matter what they do. Remember the Bengal famines? Well, that.

Florian Geyer

Tactically it is wiser for the Russian coalition to defeat the bulk of the Ukies near to Russia where thye supply lines are secure. In my opinion an armoured race across the vast expanse of the Ukie Steppe to Lvov would require 500,000 combat troops etc. A WW2 style assault.

NATO airpower, close to the Ukie Borders. with hundreds of planes could easily cause the Russian forces a problem.

“Billions of weapons/money to Ukraine went missing” LOL precicely

I have seen my fair share of the dead. In this war a lot of boots go missing, guessing the dpr did not budget for combat boots? In this video while its not a big deal one of them has plastic sandals on. While I would say its not impossible….its highly unlikely that your croc slips on would remain on your foot when you are dead. I always thought it odd that the deads pants would be falling off, its like the belt simply does not work once the air has left your body? Always saw them lying there pants falling off ….made me wear suspenders at times just in case! But here its clear the lady pulled from the rubble has two slip on sandals …maybe run an add about how great they fit?

She was clearly killed on the spot (poison or strangling is my guess, else dirtier): her right little finger is cut off (either for torture or to steal a ring she had) and still bleeding and left a stain on the floor just near her head before hands were repositioned (hence no rigor mortis yet). So it’s not just the slippers or sandals, everything cries “murder on the spot” for the woman at the right (and by etension also for the other woman with bluish throat).

Maju the Nazi

Why do they have store tags on pants? Are they gonna return them at Zara? Did they keep the receipts? Finger is not cut off either. Are you blind Nazi? I really like how their pants are brand new and ironed on a dusty basement floor. Not a single wrinkle or stain on them.

About the picture with the two dead persons. To notice is also that the person left has the pants inside out and the shoes are open, in the video the body does not wear shoes at all, but the body has much more dirt and dust on the torso, the person right wears the pullover or cardigan with the back forward, which you can see from the way it stretches at the shoulders and upper torso. A bit strange the picture, indeed.

I’ve noticed couple differences between video and photo of dead ladies. The one on the left has been sprinkled with small misterios debris in video but not in photo. The one on the right has one hand slightly different position. In video the little finger is not touching jamper on her belly and other fingers are slightly more bended then on the photo.

Maybe these ladies are no so dead after all.

As well, their father does not show that much emotions over dead daughters, but able to provide perfect, well structured story. Is he more worried about Covid in this situation or does he want to mask his facial expressions?

They are dead, but there are indicators that they died not the way the asow guys told.

Biggest mistake was allowing Ukraine 8 years to re-arm, re-equip, trained by NATO, and expand militarily. It appears Nord Stream 2 completion was a huge factor which prompted RU Army to hold off operation till 2022. No doubt reserves may need to be called especially to take Kharkiv/Odessa oblasts (cities included). Ukrainians have been ultra radicalized for 3 years now after Zelensky was put into power by Soros in 2019. And for 5 years before that they were radicalized under Poroshenko by the CIA coupt. Bottom line: opposed to 2014, RU Army is fighting NATO entirely. Not just Ukraine and some CIA elements with moderate intel support. The current Ukrainian army is supplied to the brink by all of NATO with anti-tank/anti-air missiles, tanks, and 24/7 ELINT/OSINT, recon, and early warning support from RC-135W, U2 spyplanes, spy satellites and P8s.

You are right. Russkies waited for Nord Stream 2 for usage as a bargaining chip. They had 8 years to capture Ukraine at its weakest point. But didn’t budge. Now they are getting toasted by Javelins, Starstreaks and stingers! Couldn’t even get near Kiev or Chernihiv. -500 T-72/T-80 tanks captured by AFU -1000 tanks destroyed -9 su34 downed -11 su25 downed -moskva sunk -5 su30sm downed -8 or 9 generals lost (USA/NATO recon provided intel) -30 helicopters shot down -50 drones downed major operational failure. Big deal, you gained a little land and Mariupol. Not strategic at all.

Rocket Nose Wohl

“Not strategic at all” except Russia now controls all of Azov Sea (sorry UKROPS) and liberated an area bigger than Austria Belgium or Ireland, now positioned to take Odessa and control entire Black Sea. Definitely NOT strategic. You forget Ukraine has largest air defense in Europe after Russia/bigger than any NATO country except USA. Hundreds of advanced S-300PM/V1/PT/PS. If Serbia had the air defense Ukraine had before the “invasion”, NATO would have lost dozens if not hundreds of jets in 1999. You fuckers still lost 2 stealth f117 planes 50 drones 4 apache helicopters an F-16 and F-15 in just 2 months to Serbia who had 1950s era Kub and SA3 neva. Even a B2 was hit but made it back to base (never flew again) :)

It could a be and it should a be, but not under Putin leadership. The man is always too late. And too short.

Always, everywhere, every good plan is lost because he react long ago after all trains left the station. He will probably call reserves after Donbas will fall, to protect Russia.

Just look the sanctions. He needed 60 days to just accept general order, that Russia could also maje counter sanctions to those that sanction it heavilly. How much asset was moved from Russia in this time? Exxon already sold its share in oil field? And BP and Shell either? Vladimir Too Late Putin

“The Russians are slow getting into the saddle, but fast to ride.” — German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, who unified Germany.

Meaning — the Russians take time making decisions, but once the decision is made, they pursue it wholeheartedly with no second-guessing.

Probably because they are a nation of chess-players.

Lee

Putin’s Plan: Demilitarize and Denazify. I say they are doing well. Command centres and transportation hubs are now getting a beating. Ukranian defence forces now sent to the front. Old men conscripted. To the last Ukranian is prophesy. Who then fires the weapons?

Going fast produces needless casualties. It’s just as easy to post guards and starve them into submission. Azovstal is now siege warfare. Sit and wait until they surrender, which is inevitable unless they commit suicide. Either way, not worth risking the life of a single Russian serviceman just to play tunnel rat games. It’s going to be dangerous enough clearing those basements even after everyone down there has surrendered and come out, or are all dead — it’s too easy to set up booby traps.

Muhammad your Prophet

The situation in Azovstal is that you have a fighting force with no choice of surrender because the enemy is so grotesquely brainless and sadistic that they have no other option left but to keep fighting on. Putin needs to finally liberate the world from his existence and put a gun to his mouth just like Adolf Hitler did.

The dead woman to the right was freshly killed: look at her missing finger and how it matches with the blood stain on the floor. where the hand was probably before being repositioned. Also that means no rigor mortis and again points to a very recent death (no deadly injuries of any kind on sight: poisoning?, strangling?)
