Rules Of War For Russian Soldiers In Ukraine

Illustrative Image

Amid the ongoing media campaign aimed at discrediting the Russian military, facts and footage from the war-torn regions confirm that Russian servicemen are acting in accordance with the law of war and that the order to avoid the destruction of civilian infrastructure given by the Russian military command is strictly observed.

Another prove of the respect of the norms of humanity by Russian forces in Ukraine are the leaflet distributed among the Russian servicemen:

Sadly the Ukro-Nazi war criminals are doing the exact opposite. Thanx god for Russia doing a great job at eliminating this scum.

Stephen Obi Emekekwue

VERY-TRUE! FACTS!!.: However The RFR AF’S Are Not Letting Off The UkroNazi Scum!!.These Orders Concern Protection Of HR Of The Civillian Population Of Ukraine,Red Cross/Crescent Humanitarian Organization’s And Regular AFU Troops.NO WHERE DOES IT PROTECT, UKRONAZIS CRIMINALS OR FOREIGN MERCENARIES!!.THEY ARE ALL RECIEVING THE APPROPRIATE NUREMBERG TREATMENT THEY DESERVE!!!.



Russia has been caught hiring mercenaries themselves, this is no different. Zionism and Communism are two sides of the same coin, Putin is certainly a Zionist himself. Putin supports jewish ethnonationalism, while banning Russian ethnonationalism which he calls “caveman nationalism”.


Those were Soviet show trials.

Why Germany Invaded Poland – https://forum.codoh.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=12331&hilit=why+hitler+invaded+poland#p92129


Did Hitler Want War?

— I suppose you can counter this with the first page in the preface to Mein Kampf?

Or Volume II, Chapter XIV and the Hossbach Memorandum?

Let’s forget about the plans of other countries before 1939 planning to attack Germany and expand their territory,

A glance at a map of the world in 1939 clearly ascertains how hypocritical it is to accuse Germany of imperialism.

It nevertheless took multiple world empires under the control of Judea (France, Britain, USA, USSR) to defeat Germany, a continental power and industrial powerhouse that almost won the war in Europe.



[On Sept. 1, 1939, 73 years ago, the German Army crossed the Polish frontier. On Sept. 3, Britain declared war.

Six years later, 50 million Christians and Jews had perished. Britain was broken and bankrupt, Germany a smoldering ruin. Europe had served as the site of the most murderous combat known to man, and civilians had suffered worse horrors than the soldiers.

By May 1945, Red Army hordes occupied all the great capitals of Central Europe: Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Berlin. A hundred million Christians were under the heel of the most barbarous tyranny in history: the Bolshevik regime of the greatest terrorist of them all, Joseph Stalin.

What cause could justify such sacrifices?

The German-Polish war had come out of a quarrel over a town the size of Ocean City, Md., in summer. Danzig, 95 percent German, had been severed from Germany at Versailles in violation of Woodrow Wilson’s principle of self-determination. Even British leaders thought Danzig should be returned.

Why did Warsaw not negotiate with Berlin, which was hinting at an offer of compensatory territory in Slovakia? Because the Poles had a war guarantee from Britain that, should Germany attack, Britain and her empire would come to Poland’s rescue.

But why would Britain hand an unsolicited war guarantee to a junta of Polish colonels, giving them the power to drag Britain into a second war with the most powerful nation in Europe?

Was Danzig worth a war? Unlike the 7 million Hong Kongese whom the British surrendered to Beijing, who didn’t want to go, the Danzigers were clamoring to return to Germany.

Comes the response: The war guarantee was not about Danzig, or even about Poland. It was about the moral and strategic imperative “to stop Hitler” after he showed, by tearing up the Munich pact and Czechoslovakia with it, that he was out to conquer the world. And this Nazi beast could not be allowed to do that.

If true, a fair point. Americans, after all, were prepared to use atom bombs to keep the Red Army from the Channel. But where is the evidence that Adolf Hitler, whose victims as of March 1939 were a fraction of Gen. Pinochet’s, or Fidel Castro’s, was out to conquer the world?

After Munich in 1938, Czechoslovakia did indeed crumble and come apart. Yet consider what became of its parts.

The Sudeten Germans were returned to German rule, as they wished. Poland had annexed the tiny disputed region of Teschen, where thousands of Poles lived. Hungary’s ancestral lands in the south of Slovakia had been returned to her. The Slovaks had their full independence guaranteed by Germany. As for the Czechs, they came to Berlin for the same deal as the Slovaks, but Hitler insisted they accept a protectorate.

Now one may despise what was done, but how did this partition of Czechoslovakia manifest a Hitlerian drive for world conquest?

Comes the reply: If Britain had not given the war guarantee and gone to war, after Czechoslovakia would have come Poland’s turn, then Russia’s, then France’s, then Britain’s, then the United States.

We would all be speaking German now.

But if Hitler was out to conquer the world — Britain, Africa, the Middle East, the United States, Canada, South America, India, Asia, Australia — why did he spend three years building that hugely expensive Siegfried Line to protect Germany from France? Why did he start the war with no surface fleet, no troop transports and only 29 oceangoing submarines? How do you conquer the world with a navy that can’t get out of the Baltic Sea?

If Hitler wanted the world, why did he not build strategic bombers, instead of two-engine Dorniers and Heinkels that could not even reach Britain from Germany?

Why did he let the British army go at Dunkirk?

Why did he offer the British peace, twice, after Poland fell, and again after France fell?

Why, when Paris fell, did Hitler not demand the French fleet, as the Allies demanded and got the Kaiser’s fleet? Why did he not demand bases in French-controlled Syria to attack Suez? Why did he beg Benito Mussolini not to attack Greece?

Because Hitler wanted to end the war in 1940, almost two years before the trains began to roll to the camps.

Hitler had never wanted war with Poland, but an alliance with Poland such as he had with Francisco Franco’s Spain, Mussolini’s Italy, Miklos Horthy’s Hungary and Father Jozef Tiso’s Slovakia.

Indeed, why would he want war when, by 1939, he was surrounded by allied, friendly or neutral neighbors, save France. And he had written off Alsace, because reconquering Alsace meant war with France, and that meant war with Britain, whose empire he admired and whom he had always sought as an ally.

As of March 1939, Hitler did not even have a border with Russia. How then could he invade Russia?

Winston Churchill was right when he called it “The Unnecessary War” — the war that may yet prove the mortal blow to our civilization.]

Ukraine is so stupid they have no idea of how important the moral high ground is. You’re not going to win over people to your side if you act in a treacherous manner.

Edgar Zetar

There are several dimensions involving high moral ground during conflicts. 1. You made sure your soldiers you are the good ones 2. Your soldiers are sure God is with them 3. if they died they will die in pursuit of good so no punish will be at the end. 4. If your soldiers can control themselves in a war environment so it means they have iron soul inside them and also could follow laws and orders in the worst scenarios….easily could get into 30 invoking the high moral ground… adding to that you cannot cancel a brigade or a batallion for one or two soldier’s mistake, like the Western Culture want us to think this kind of thought the highest law, the perfect’s one who are shit in reality, just one fault and its everybody fault…. Ukrainian soldiers are the opossite, they are commiting atrocities and were trained do the worst things and barbaric crimes in order to promote FEAR to Russians soldiers, thats why they torture and share the vids.. after the War, what this UKI soldiers can do? How to reinsert them into society?… 100% sure their own Goverment will put up on them after the war…. remember western countries always have lots and infinite money to go to wars and then after war, they threats their veterans and war heroes like shit, or used toilet paper.

“Sadly the Ukro-Nazi war criminals are doing the exact opposite. ”

Sadly you are too decrepit to acknowledge the extensive footage proving that Russian forces are behaving in the exact opposite manner to the fake list presented here.


The title below reads: “We have to get rid our planet of Russians”. https://military.pravda.ru/news/1714377-neonacist_karas_nado_ochistit_planetu_ot_russkikh/ Look at the face of the primitive. There is plenty of these mongrels.


Contains no corroborating sources or references, it’s a government owned publication that never took journalist standards seriously. Russian media is sensationalist and theatrical to the max.

What about zio-american media ?


nazi poko polo hardly fluent in English….idiot lying racist


Russian media considers the Ukrainian population consisting of “Nazis”. They discuss plans to invade NATO and are looking forward to a nuclear Armageddon where everyone dies; Russians go to heaven and will be “happy” there, while their enemies perish.

The Chabad Lubavitch cult is officially sanctioned by Russia, the state of Israel and the entirety of the Western world. They are openly jewish supremacist and preach their self-fulfilling “prophecies” (blueprints) for the jewish messianic age where they control everything and bring about “happiness” for humanity, ironically they only consider jews to be human with “living soul” and the goyim (nations, non-jews) to be beasts of the earth.


Russian politicians and media personalities are no strangers to issuing death threats to other countries, they are comparable to the antics on an old American talk show called Jerry Springer. The recently deceased half-jew Vladimir Zhirinovsky was known to demand nuclear attacks on Australia and NATO.

There is footage documenting his intimate interactions with young men that can be interpreted as closet homosexuality, including footage of kissing himself them one of them on the lips and rubbing their bellies in the swimming pool. There is a birthday photo of multiple young men in a swimming pool holding a coffin above their heads containing the elderly Zhirinovsky when he was still alive.

Zionism is as hold as the Hebrews themselves. https://odysee.com/@truthhertzradio:b/Ancient-Zionism-Part-1:4


[No one who runs around erecting statues of Bolshevik Jews and hoisting flags of empires created by Bolshevik Jews is the good guy.

Putin’s Russia is just trying to replace Zionism with Communism. And no matter who wins, Jews win.]


[Communism is a system the Jews use against non-Jews.

It’s a system created by Jews, for Jews, to reduce non-Jews to a cattle class whose sole purpose is to provide for and serve the Jewish people.]

Keep on Jacking Jack. Careful you don’t pull too hard.


Yes and throwing all sorts of smears at Russian soldiers without any evidence,but we have seen many cases of murder and torture of Russian POWs from the Ukrainians.


“Yes and throwing all sorts of smears at Russian soldiers without any evidence”

You routinely hurl accusations around without evidence, then cry foul if the same happens to Russians.

“but we have seen many cases of murder and torture of Russian POWs from the Ukrainians.”

This year, I have literally commented with photos and images of the Russian side engaging in theft; killing civilians and POWs, et cetera. in the comment field. Pictures and film documenting Russian casualties of war is a war crime from your perspective; you simultaneously approve of Russian acts of wrongdoing, while demanding your opponent live up to higher standards than you ever could.

You think you should display no honour or mercy to “Nazis” (i.e. anyone the Russian government doesn’t like, or wants to conquer), while demanding Russian POWs be treated by their captors with the utmost respect. The irony here is that Germany played the morally righteous game and everyone was told a completely different story contrary to what really happened.

“Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster… for when you gaze long into the abyss. The abyss gazes also into you.” ― Friedrich W. Nietzsche

Mass Murder at Katyn – https://www.ostarapublications.com/product/mass-murder-at-katyn/

[These post-mortem report—carried out by an unbiased international team of doctors, overseen by the Red Cross and Allied Prisoners of War brought in to observe proceedings—revealed that the victims had all been executed by single shots to the back of the head—a painstaking and brutal way to individually execute the thousands of victims discovered in the mass graves.

It also then provides a full copy of the major exchanges between the International Red Cross and other parties on the matter, while the next section details the Allied response to the revelations, which in summary consisted of a pretence that the murders had not taken place, or, if they had, that they had been committed by the Germans.

The report then provides a full list of the names the postmortem investigations were able to identify and ends with a complete photographic record of the mass graves, the postmortems, and the items recovered from the scene.

The Communist atrocity at Katyn—downplayed and often ignored by the media—was a turning point in the propaganda war of not only the Second World War, but also of all post-war propaganda—because it was the Soviet Union’s desire for revenge over National Socialist Germany’s exposure of the Katyn massacre which led to the first “mass genocide” allegations against the Nazis following the capture of the German concentration camps in Poland.]

And that’s among other reasons why Ukro-Nazi are loosing.

There hasn’t been much a campaign to discredit the Russian military. The Putin cockroaches have made a great job at discrediting themselves by being so fucking repulsive. Every government around the world chuckles when Putin talks about the special moronic operation. Because only a fucking moron can come up with such an idiotic name to call an invation.

If there’s a group of people whose opinions are important to me, it has to be “government”. Is there a better informed group of individuals than, oh, say, Boris Johnson and his cabinet, or Trudeau, or Biden? All clearly gifted intellectually and with proven track records of wise statecraft, no?

Muhammad your Prophet

I bet you do. Especially a government as unapologetically corrupt as the Kremlin.


That is a projection of those Russians and Chinese who are mindlessly believing their own governments. You cannot fathom the possibility of any third party, you only think there are two opposite extremes. In reality they are one in the same; two sides of the same coin pretending to be enemies.


The victors write the history. Russia needs to concentrate on winning the war instead of worrying about distracting nonsense like international “law” and treaties signed by dead politicians. Bomb the bridges and rail lines like any other army would do.


Then that makes you fair game, you are no different than the greatest mass killers of all time.

nazi poko molo discharged from hospital following another psychotic episode


Manner in which wars are fought is of utmost importance, Especially with a neighboring country, less you would plant a seed for a future conflict.


Morally true. In case of heavily indoctrinated banderistas and their offspring it´s irelevant. They won´t care. Kill the scum like Strelkov said.


And let’s remember the whole world is watching Russia right now. In particular to assess the character of the country, in relation to their decision to choose the side of the SCO/global south or remaining under american vassalage.

There would be no point to swap a war criminal with another. This is why the russians are going to great lengths to show they put their money where their mouth is, particularly in reference to the the stated objective of the multipolar world that every country is free, sovereign and brutal violence will never be used by anyone for political and economic gains.


The CLOWN OF KIEV and NATO have never, ever, lived by that set of rules and never will. If the US had invaded Ukraine it would have ended up looking like IRAQ. THE Cities would have been destroyed, a million civilians killed, infrastructure destroyed.

Oliver Stone was on Lex Friedman last week stating this and Lex had a hard time dealing with this Russian battlefield doctrine. The defining moment in the interview was when Oliver Stone stated less civilians will be killed in this operation than from indiscriminate bombing of Donbass since the 2014 coup.




nazi English


We were never given the rules of war before being sent to Vietnam. It was understood that we could not kill POW’s so we gave them to the ARVN and they killed them after torture. It was understood that napalm and phosphorous and poison gas were all illegal, but we used them all.


Russia is a Christian and a Muslim nation in which the leaders themselves are frequently seen going to the religious places, unlike the western elites who go to secret society places to worship Baphomet the Satan. This can be observed by their actions in war. The western Sodomites destroy all main bridges, Water systems, sewage systems, electric power systems etc… The western logic says if we destroy all essential civilian infrastructure, the people will revolt against the government. Human behavior doesn’t work that way, the people will compare you with what the government has done, they will find out that the west is the most evil savage monster and they will hate the west more than their own government.
