On May 12, Ukrainian Finance Minister Serhiy Marchenko said in an interview with Reuters that Ukraine had already spent 245.1 billion hryvnias (about $8.3 billion) on the war with Russia. According to Marchenko, the budget funds provided for development were spent on the military needs from the purchase and repair of weapons to emergency aid for internally displaced persons. The Ukrainian government collected only 60% of the planned tax revenues in April. In May and June this figure may fall down to 45-50%.
“Kiev needs foreign financial support as Ukraine is forced to allocate billions of dollars for emergency expenses. The Finance Ministry estimates that it needs $5 billion a month to finance the state budget,” the minister claimed.
Meanwhile, the situation on the front lines remains tense. The Ukrainian Armed Forces are facing a strong onslaught of the Russian troops in the Donbass region.
In the Izyum region, after the Russian Armed Forces took control over the village of Dolgenkoe, they are advancing in the direction of Bogorodichnoye and Krasnopolye to the west of Sviatogorsk, according to the AFU General Staff.
In the Luhansk People’s Republic, units of the Russian and LPR armies are surrounding the AFU grouping in Lysychansk and Severodonetsk. The Russian army is regrouping troops in the Liman and Severodonetsk directions. A battalion tactical group deployed in the area of the Novy Aidar railway station has been reinforced.
Russian and LPR troops completed the mop up operation in the major chemical plant Zarya in Rubizhne, LPR. Russian, Chechen, and Luhansk flags were raised over the industrial facilities. The LPR military officials confirmed that the industrial zone in teh town of Rubizhne had been completely cleared after prolonged fighting. In turn, Ukraine officially confirmed that the bridge between Rubizhne and Severodonetsk had been destroyed. After the loss of the Rubizhne and Voyevodka and the undermining of the bridge, LPR forces supported by Russian units reportedly launched an assault on Severodonetsk neighborhoods.
On the eastern front of Ukraine, there are battles for control over various settlements. The Ukrainian side reports an assault by the DPR and Russian Armed Forces on Kamianka and Novoselovka-2 in the area of Avdeevka.
The Russian Army is concentrating its main efforts on the offensive actions in the directions of Severodonetsk, Soledar and Bakhmut. Assault operations along the line of contact are underway with air and artillery support.
In the Donetsk People’s Republic, Russian troops have achieved some tactical success near Avdiivka, which was confirmed by the AFU military officials.
The Russian-led forces are attempting to advance in the direction of Marinka and Novomikhailovka. DPR forces took control over the village of Aleksandropillya near Popasna and pushed back Ukrainian units to Kamyshevakha. The advance is aimed at closing the cauldron over the AFU grouping in the area.
In the city of Mariupol, fighters of the Azov Regiment report that the Azovstal plant is being stormed by the joint Russian and DPR forces. The Russian Air Forces and artillery are pounding the military positions of the Ukrainian militants.
The situation on the Ukrainian front lines remains very complex. The AFU and the Russian Federation are fighting for every house. The Russian army’s successes near Severodonetsk could lead to further blockading of Ukrainian forces and consolidation of Russian positions in the region. At the same time, the advance of the Russian-led forces is slowing down due to a shortage of manpower and some strategic mistakes of the Russian military command. Thus, the AFU gain time to reinforce their defences along the entire front lines.

I feel for the people of the Lugansk & Donetsk republics. And also for the Ukrainians under the sphere of Kiev. You’re not alone and your fight is just & noble.
This conflict has already started changing the geopolitics and has backfired the monopoly of the USA.
Once Azovstal falls, it will free much needed forces.
Russia needs to go all-in soon, and blitz with heavy munitions and cruise missiles to drive UAF forces back. Once a border has been established, nuclear posturing can begin.
Russia does have the means to absolutely crush all foreign mercenary forces and fascists. Only one quarter to one fifth of the active personnel are currently in Ukraine, and that’s not counting the full mobilisation of conscripts. And Russia has resources. So Russia won’t lose it’s momentum like what has happened to Nazi Germany.
This conflict isn’t just about killing your enemy but it’s also about liberating your people. Russia has shown how much they are willing to save as many lives, as seen with the halt to hostilities with A30B just to get as many civilians hold hostages evacuated out of Azovstal and also not resorting to carpet bombing like the USA & UK love so much doing. As seen in Serbia, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Syria… they are addict to killing and that’s why they want to keep the killing going.
They did fry same tactic in Afghanistan look at the result . Fantastic result isn’t it?
Indian TV has just had breaking NEWS:
BREAKING NEWS AZOVSTAL :

‼️Ztay free. Don’t let Russians to catch you😉‼️
Checked in our MSM — none says about it, social networks only, i.e. private users. Need to wait for few days to prove it. Would be great, if so.
Ukraine News: US General Eric Olson British Lieutenant Colonel John Bailey and 4 NATO military instructors. There is news of Canadian French Turkish officers still hiding inside tunnels.
Don’t expect the US MSM to wake up for a couple days after the fact. The MSM will tell you what they want to to hear when they want you to hear it.
MSM isn’t going to talk about it. Look at the picture, it looks like a 70 yr old washed up nazi kisser. Dead ringer if you ask me.
Confirmed 4 hrs ago.
Sure looks like him. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FSvMvEGWQAAOHqx?format=jpg&name=small
War Crimes Tribunal time.
They came preparing Azov for Operation Storm 2.0 and ran into Operation Grinding War Machine 1.0. May I take a moment to shed a tear?
Can anyone put that to music?
Dumb Turkeys are losing to Kurdish freedom. Russians are fighting on home ground in Ukraine and winning big time. They just took a US general prisoner. Turkeys are slaves of US masters and Zionists. Russians defeated the Turkeys 17 times in 200 years.
That’s what your Indian general say so 99p boy f*** off
The Russians handed the Ukis their arse mate! Russia is like a steam roller. What a waste of billions of US dollars as Americans suffer food shortages.
NATO is a “defensive alliance” like Hiroshima and Nagasaki were defensive nuclear strikes.
good, then the practice will make their “drills” seem more realistic when they have to instantly resort to becoming a small pile of salt on the sidewalk.
NATO is too big for its britches and its britches have just fallen off.
Twenty five years it’s gotten away with shit that Hitler could only have dreamed of.
Russia is scoring some very serious Victories in eastern Ukraine.
The Chechen after a ferocious firefight have liberated the #Zarya Chemical Factory, whose industrial area is several kilometers long and wide. A large cache of US weapons and personnel IDs also found.
Many said that the Zarya plant is the second Azovstal plant and that Russian fighters will not take it easily, however, the Chechens and some reports that Iranians routed the Azov Nazis is a day long battle inflicting 200 casualties and 75 POWS.
After giving us the green light from President Putin, Russians forces liberated the plant with ease, and found very valuable Western fish inside. Iranian and Hezbollah TV have shown an extensive video on the scale of Ukrainian defeat.

The simple truth is as Pentagon admitted.
Russia is the one shaping the Ukrainian war today.
Russia can take her time. Russia owns Gazprom, Lukoil, and the pipeline company Transneft among other oil and gas holdings. The longer this war drags on the more money the Russian government pulls in.
This will be long war until the US has used up all Uki cannon fodder.
The problem is that if Russia calls in the reserves and goes all in, the clock starts ticking. And with US information and intel power, and the time it takes to maneuver reserves, chances are that the all in will stall too.
As it is, Russia can maintain this effort for a very long time. If Russia goes all in, it is in a situation where it has to make huge gains. This is not WW2, Russia is not USSR and the Russians are hardly interested in 1 million dead solldiers and two years of total war for Ukraine.
Russian clown, 🤡💨
Joke is on you jackass, I’m from Québec.
Russians are great people, and their women are beautiful and not full of vanity like in europe.
Bien Sur, Et Bonjour
You Turks are starving and asking India for wheat. Turkish deadbeat economy is now running at official 70% inflation and 30% unemployment. Should have groveled to Russia. The Kurds are killing your inept cannon fodder soldiers from Iraq to Syria every day.
Agreed, erdogan hasent won anything he has started yet. its quite funny. give them 20 yrs of combat experience and they might be able to defend a farm instead of just murder the farmers and steal the tractor.
99p boy you can’t even feed your own population. Millions of people starving. Our economies is not 100% but we are not complaining why you so worry.. or your Indian general say so . Asking India joke off the day 😂😂😂😂
The Ukrainian corrupt Jew state is failing and losing ground very rapidly to Russian Federation and its allies. It is now also increasingly apparent that most of the Ukrainian Nazi and Jew MSM propaganda about Hollywood Ukrainian “victories” was totally absurd. The UAF is being ground to oblivion by dogged and tenacious Russian forces, who now control all the railway junctions east of Dnipro.
Ukrainians despite receiving over $80 billion in western weapons and having over 3,000 NATO advisors with them have failed to mount even a company size “counter-attack”. The Chechens have captured four M-777 NATO howitzers in the past three days along with several hundred ATGM and manpads.
There are now confirmed reports that the corrupt Ukrainian puppet regime and Nazi terrorists have sold hundreds of NATO donated weapons on the black market. The NATO, especially US and UK “advisors” are also involved in mass human trafficking, rapes, child abuse and drug smuggling. Ukraine now literally is the pimping central for Europe and the west. President Putin has been proven right when he stated that Ukraine was full of Nazis, drug addicts and perverts and had to be cleaned out. The Russians as expected are prevailing and will achieve all their stated goals. The spiteful west is pouring money into a corrupt abyss while its own hapless people starve and live in poverty. The so-called “sanctions” on Russia have also failed miserably. Russian wheat exports are at their peak and energy supplies have easily found alternate markets.
Even the Pentagon spokesman admitted that Russia is controlling the battlefield in Ukraine after an embarrassing video of 3 US Stingers aimed at a Russian SU-35S and all failed due to excellent counter-measures and chaff.
A German general, Erich Vad, said the same. His interview appeared on NTV.de, a transatlantic-neofachist mainstram outlet. They were quite surprised to hear ALL of their own propaganda dismantled.
Mate, we in the west are totally censored and now even the establishment types are questioning the idiotic MSM narrative. First they said that Russia is out of missiles on day three, then Germany even banned the Alphabet Z, then Putin was supposed to die of cancer, now the latest is that there is a coup in Russia. These lies just don’t gel with any sensible person now. Russians are hanging tough and will see this anti-Nazification project through.
Wishful thinking. But I do agree that China and India are growing “new” powers. Russia and Europe are marginalizing themselves. Russia is like country village old gas station. Europe can’t compete.
Anglo-Zionist agenda is to arm India and cause a India-China mega bloodbath that will make Ukraine look like a walk in the park. China just suspended visas for Indian students who are spying for their western masters. Hindus are historical white ass lickers with massive inferiority complex. 900 million Indians defecate in the streets.
Americans are too dumb and immature to come up with anything original, they are copying the British time tested imperialist policies of divide and rule. India beset with caste system and permanent inferiority complex is easy to control, China is proving to be a threat to the west, so we will use Indian cannon fodder, just like Ukraine is being used to weaken Russia.
NATO and the west’s problem is that they showed their hands early on, when they dismantled Yugoslavia by hook and by crook and then pushed the international court to recognize Kosovo’s unilateral right to secession.
Now they try to do the exact opposite, keeping Ukraine from being dismantled because their greed for Sevastopol demanded that they refuse to recognize Crimea’s right to secession and Donbass’ right to an autonomy every US state of the Union enjoys.
They outsmarted themselves and Russia finally called them on it. The wannabe emperor has been stripped naked.
Europe is marginalizing itself … Russia not so much. Russia is in the commodities business. Commodities are like real estate … they tend to increase in value over the years because there is a limited supply of them. If Germany, France, UK and USA won’t buy them India, China and Malaysia will. There’s always going to be a market for Russian commodities but the cost of energy and the lifestyle of Europeans and Americans make the goods they sell uncompetitive.
China is next in NATO cross-hairs depending on the outcome of the Ukraine slug fest. If Russia falters and is carved up, then US and NATO will apply the same template against China. Yugoslavia was the pilot project, prior to the Tweeting and Facebook propaganda war. The western populations are now totally fed one dimensional propaganda. Russia fell into a decade planned trap.
Slowly but surely, much of what’s left of Europe’s industrial production will migrate to China. It’s as inevitable as the sun’s rising.
Old gas station? that’s why russia has words most modern weapons system, any commpetition to sarmat kinschal su57 no!
Breaking News from Indian TV news channels:
Russians attacked Severodonetsk 11 times with artillery, Azot chemical plant set alight as Ukrainian defences crumble.
I wish you’d give us some links from time to time.
Russia been trying over 2 months now what’s happening .🤡
Ukranian forces just humiliated the Putin cockroaches in Kharkiv the same way they humiliated them in Kiev. And Ukranian forces now have complete control of the two largest cities in Ukraine. The money is being well spent.
You’re delusional. Russia is allowing Ukraine to simply waste their money and men. Its that simple.
Russia is allowing Ukraine to simply waste their money and men by sending 27,000 Russian soldiers straight to their deaths by the latest count. Everybody’s well aware that Putin the terrorist cockroach is murdering his own soldiers in his desperate attempt to avoid a humiliating defeat at the hands of his fictional Nazi enemies.
Explain how Ukraine is winning when we’re now seeing videos of foreign soldiers with increasing regularity fighting for Ukraine?
Could it possibly be that Ukraine is running out of people willing to fight since enough have surrendered or been killed?
You trust the Clown of Kiev to tell you the truth. Guess what, the jokes on you.
The typical kill rate with these circumstances on the battlefield are greater than 10 to 1.
Don’t expect intelligence from that one.
No they are not. Russian forces are humiliating the Nazis, NATO and mercenaries. 100% of the money is wasted. You are just parroting stupid Nazi propaganda.
While “Putin cockroaches were humiliated” in Kiev the Ukraine lost territory bigger than UK
Ukraine is in very dire straits and keeps on asking for more money and weapons. The Jews are running a mega racket to fleece the west via the Zionist Zelensky puppet regime.
more land taken by Russia in under three months than Ukraine managed to take in 9 yrs
Seems like all of Ukraine’s ships have floundered in Operation Donbass Storm.
Just like the Spanish Armada’s invasion of England and the Mongol invasion of Japan.
They all thought they were storming their object of desire but then the storm turned back on them with a vengeance.
You also need to get a life as this Ukraine nonsense is getting old. Russia will prevail and no one in the west cares about a bunch of sick Nazis and corrupt Jew pimps in Kiev. In contrast thousands of people came out to demonstrate against the Zionist murder of the Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh in most European cites and even with millions of CIA and MI-6 dollars the Ukrainian Jews could not even organize phone booth sized demonstration. Most people also know that the Azov Nazis and Ukrainian puppet regime has committed most of the war crimes, rapes and murders. Russia is the good guy in this sordid drama.
eselficker, halt die fresse. und apropos muhammad, hatte der alte kinderschänder laut koran nicht eine 8 jahre alte frau (kind) ???
yes they all follow the head pedophile in practice. they are disgusting creatures.
What really blows my mind is how NATO trainers and commanders can chummy up to such disgusting creatures who think that genociding the Russian speakers of Ukraine is some sort of joke. These NATO people must be disgusting creatures themselves.
Only the Slavic people are losers in this well rehearsed plot to destroy Russia.
They always had full control, dimwit – because it’s not been on the RF’s agenda, for now or if ever.
What a simpleton.
Sure now? Did the rest fall off the back of a truick nibto waiting arms filled with great expectations?
Америка принимает непосредственное участие в боевых действиях, нарушая российскую связь, обеспечивая высокоточные изображения, разведку и обнаружение целей, поставляя современное военное оборудование, координируя действия украинских военных. Украинцам нужно было только навести и нажать на курок. Америка также напрямую и через своих марионеток разрушает экономику России, воруя деньги, применяя санкции, эмбарго и удаляя из SWIFT. Америка также ведет информационную войну против России.
Президент Путин, вы должны нанести ответный удар по Америке! Пожалуйста, выпустите это биологическое оружие из украинских лабораторий в Америку! Пожалуйста, напечатайте доллары США, чтобы заменить украденные деньги! Пожалуйста, уничтожьте их, если они усилят атаку против вас!
You are truly an imbecile !! The Pentagon asked for a Cease Fire because Ukraine is about to collapse.
Look up . you’re on Bayraktar camera keep smiling 🥲 booom 💥
Turkish drones are as incompetent as their loser military, the Kurds are killing you dumb Turkeys every day.
That’s why your countrie is so advanced, turks made only baklava , everything else is useless rubbish
They even stole the Baklava recipe from the Arabs and also their religion. Turks are a bunch of brigands and backstabbers.
lol they follow their leader, mohammad the thieving bandit. you can read about his banditry in the koran [Pronounced Toi-le-t Pa-pe-r] book where he wrote about his exploits murdering farmers, raping children, women, camels, donkeys etc. and some other stuff about auditory hallucinations as well as delusionary psychotropic narcotic trips where he is so intoxicated he believed he was flying a magic horse to never never land. quite an amusing comic and can be used as advertised although its not the greatest asswipe. (100% burnable pulp fiction)
Like you stolen vindaloo from Bangladeshi people . Biryani from kashmiri people 99p boy
Jealousy can kill you
No need for Bayraktars in Turkey. They’re destroying their economy just fine without them.
Ukraine is asking for more money and weapons, the Kiev pimps are really taking the west for a ride.
I’m already rubbing my hands in anticipation.
Cease fire? Desperate to regroup and resupply? Instead, Russia put the pedal to the metal.
You are right about some in America and what they are doing to Russia. but your are wrong its America. Its the asshole un Americans sell out traitors who become willing puppets of the deep state for money and power that doing it. From stolen election not POTUS Biden and gang on down. The white hats known about this and they have/are taken these traitors down for good and are working with the white hats there in your country. Its been going on for years and we are near the end of it. Just watch the news. Soon the whole world will know about this and these pukes will pay dearly for their crimes. Most will be hung. The last part you wrote is wrong and should not happen. Just because you have a house with 5 people in it and one person is a evil vile POS doesn’t mean you blow up the whole house and everybody in it just to get that one person. The only reason they (Biden, Boris Johnson, Macron and Zelensky) are making a big deal about Russia and what happening in Ukraine is they are freaking out Russia is stopping and will expose all the evil and illegal things that been going on by the deep state, crooked politicians from all over the world and the neo Nazis. Who are the ones really running Ukraine as the deep state foot soldiers. Don’t worry, American’s troops will not be deploy into Ukraine and no American’s nukes will be use. Russia will win in the end over Ukraine. WWG1WGA
It would be interesting to see the financial records of Ukraine, let me guess, in the fog of war they were misplaced?
why you worry about Ukraine financial records.. 3.2.1.nah
The corrupt Ukis are eating our tax dollars.
First it was corrupt Afghanis, then corrupt Iraqis but Ukraine’s third time will be the charm, I’m sure of it. In fact, I guarantee it. Contact my Cypriot bank for further details.
The western central banks have printed way too much money. Guess “Ukraine” is above all a mega-Bad bank to make all this fake money disappear. Thus it is necessary for the West to let “Ukraine” go bankrupt or simply disappear from the records. The latter could have been the plan from the beginning (2014 and earlier).
Goldman Sacks, the criminal Jew ponzi pyramid crooks who bankrupted Greece and Italy is the financial adviser to the Zelensky Jew conman who has siphoned over $2 billion of our tax dollars. Zelensky is a self-admitted coke head and a porn actor so there is not much future for poor Ukrainians who will fare better under Russian rule.
I had them at one time but then wiped my ass with them and forged my own.
Gud Enuf fer US Govermint Werk.
Understatement of the week: the situation remains complex. It shouldn’t be but it is. I am afraid that it is RF that has the most complexes. BTW didn’t Putin order to leave Azovstal alone? What are the Russians doing there, refusing orders?
You are misinformed = Puting ordered the sealing of Azovstal about 10 days ago. A very reduced number of RF troops can take care of the Morons hiding in Azovstal and that is the way it is. Every day a new bunch is eliminated and every day the rest of the Morons cry for help.
Are they war criminals that are to frightened to come out
That moron defending their country what about stupid brainless cockroaches puting with Chechen terrorists tryingg to invade their country…or go on waiting you’re stupid answer
Chechens have just liberated the largest chemical plant in Europe which will be worth billions to Russians. It is largely intact as the videos on Iranian TV show.

hammering any rat that tries to escape the sinking ship, what else would they be doing? very effective rodent killers
America and puppets are waging a full scale hybrid war against Russia: military, economy, cyber, media. America is directly involved in the fighting by disrupting Russian communications, providing real time intelligence and target spotting including killing generals and sinking ships, providing advanced military equipment, and coordinating Ukrainian military actions. The Ukrainians only had to point and pull the trigger.
President Putin, you have to hit back hard at America! Please print dollars to replace money stolen from Russia! https://youtu.be/i77nE2gLbDY Please release those Ukrainian lab bioweapons into America! Please noke them if America intensify their attacks!
There should be 5 million USD bounty for any hitman that results in deface or permanent damage of Ukraine current top leader,
or 10 millions resulting in the death of permanent disability of this leader
who has disregarded the lives and wishes of normal Ukraine citizens, willingly serve as a slave to US and allies to use Ukraine as a battle field, sacrifice Ukraine citizens to acheive US and allies move east objective.
Next missile strategic strike in Ukraine should be to destroy the vast agricultural produce Ukraine is still capable of producing, and to destroy Ukraine industries that are still raking in big profits. Simply bomb hard at selected companies, and headquarters to cause havoc and confidence lost.
Make sure to further destroy the economy like what US and allies and trying to gang up hooliganly to steal Russia’s wealth
Russia should print US dollars to replace money that the West stole: https://youtu.be/i77nE2gLbDY All is fair in love and war… Russia should release those bioweapons found in the Ukrainian labs into America. Or maybe bioengineer deadly sub-variants of Covid.
Hmmm, yeah. Hit the Ukrainian oligarchs where they will feel it- thier business interests. The whole Uke elites, actually.
Fish in a barrel
AFU troops are good at several things. Retreating is one of them and following a Clown to hell is another. Follow the worms.
If I said Russian troops were advancing at a snails 🐌 pace they would be moving faster than they are. But they are advancing and taking minimum casualties in the process.
Ukrainian troops are not so fortunate. Knowing that sooner or later you’ll be worm food is no picnic. Waiting for your execution. The ONLY GOOD NAZI IS A DEAD NAZI.
When will Ukraine send in its regiment of all trans-people that swallows whatever NATO or the EU puts in their mouths? It will turn the tide…
After you dumbo
Russia should ban tiktok etc its western ideologies corrupt peoples minds
so many evil people on that app spreading their nonsense affecting others
Ukis are losing the propaganda war as Russia whups them. So the Uki propaganda is getting more desperate.

LOL, video games dude.
The forthcoming negotiations on the exchange of wounded Nazis from “Azov” encircled in Mariupol for Russian prisoners of war, I state: 1. If such exchange really takes place, then it will become another and WIDE step towards the defeat of the Russia in the ongoing war. 2. Anyone in Russia who gives permission for such exchange will de facto commit an act of TREASON against his state and his army (no matter how he disguises this betrayal de jure and whatever he himself does think about it). I substantiate: As I have repeatedly written, ALL military theorists singled out as the main task of any military operations – the DESTRUCTION of the enemy’s military forces. To achieve a decisive victory over the enemy without defeating his main armed forces happen very rarely and under unique conditions. For example, the event of an internal turmoil (Russia, 1917), completely paralyzed economy without engaging in battle with the ground forces (Yugoslavia, 1999). One of the main components of the defeat of the opposing army is the infliction of a MORAL DEFEAT on it. Undermining the faith of enemy soldiers and officers in the possibility of victory and relative probability of surviving the war. History knows many cases when an army that was far from physically defeated laid down its arms and fell apart precisely because of a moral breakdown (Prussia after the first defeats from Napoleon in 1806, France in May 1940, etc.). Vice versa, if there is no moral breakdown, even already defeated troops will continue to fight, will inflict losses on the enemy and will influence the final outcome of the war. In our particular case, we are talking about the siege of a fortress, stubbornly defended by a garrison, staffed with the “Nazi-cream”. The enemy already turned by propaganda this garrison into a “banner of resistance to the aggressor”. VICTORY in this battle will be determined not by “formal parameters”, the occupation of some “significant point” (the Azovstal plant), but precisely by the fate of the garrison. The more soldiers and officers of the enemy who manage to avoid death and captivity, the more likely it is that the battle for Mariupol and Azovstal will be perceived by the enemy army as a victory. With the corresponding conclusions: “in all such situations, we must stand to the end, inflict losses on the Russians, and then the cowardly stupid Russian untermensch will release us from the encirclement one way or another, and we will return home as heroes, making a great contribution to the inevitable final victory”. The complete destruction of the Nazi-Azov in Mariupol will give the enemy a clear example of the INEVITABILITY of death and will significantly affect the behavior of the garrisons of new “fortresses” being prepared right now. By releasing of even small number of enemies without capturing them from the “fortress” you will multiply your own losses in the future and an you will significantly raise the enemy’s morale… – Strelkov
So far as i know after 3 months of bombing the Yugoslav army was 90% intact, you can see online Videos showing Yugoslav army after nato attak (military convoys on serbian province )
US just for spite even bombed the Chinese embassy and killed a number of diplomats.
No way for you to defead russia, you have to accept the fact
You are an IDIOT, man. This guy “Suvorov” is obviously PRO-Russian, as you can see from reading his post. He is warning the Russian command NOT to let the Nazis in Azovstal go. Are you stupid?
I fully agree with you, absolutely no Azovstal prisoners should be exchanged, because they are a strategic symbol. Furthermore, Russia must keep them all as war criminals.
But they cannot be exterminated, once they surrender, because then Ukraine can also exterminate the Russian prisoners.
If high-ranking NATO military personnel are found there, they should keep them as high-value currency for the future, but in no case trade them now, because the enemy will explain it as Russian weakness.
Postscript: Thank you, I like to read some intelligent comments like yours, realistic and not condescending with Russia because the situation is not good, in fact it is quite dangerous for Russia, I see videos on youtube where you can see that NATO weapons, their power of fire and its precision, (in the hands of the Ukraine), do terrible damage.
If the comment is from Strelkov, thank you for bringing it here, I like the leaders of the Republics much more than those of the Kremlin, including Putin.
Nato weapons are rubbish, after the F35 was delivered to Bundeswehr the officers has shows numerous of faulting on the scrap
For example very old USSR missile was able to shootdown the F117A
Don’t Look propaganda TV and YouTube all garbage nothing truth ,even Taliban was able to defeat NATO, most of NATO countries are still using 40 years old Russian weapons
After/if this whole situation ever settles down and the Nazis have spent a decade or so at HARD labor in Siberia, load them on disposable planes and fly them to European capitals (London, priority!) so that they can pollute and make life difficult for the people there. Canada and US, too. Delivery to shores by boat is a good alternative.
“Shells supplied by the Netherlands for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. On one of them the inscription – “revenge for MH17″. I don’t understand how the shells delivered to the Ukrainians will avenge the Boeing shot down by the Ukrainians. Do they explode in the barrel”
Of course you cannot understand that the Boening was shot down by Russian soldiers on Ukrainian soil, obviously you trust Russian propaganda more than the facts. And the fact is, that Russia has been fighting in Ukraine for the last 8 years. Apparently this fact is still a surprise to some.
“Russian propaganda” nope, I trust the maker of the product used by the UA to shoot down the plane whom states the projectiles used match serial numbers to lot loads left in Ukraine. Thats the facts jack
The facts are evidence presented before a Dutch court. No, Russian propaganda is neither evidence nor facts. That’s the facts jack.
Baltic UN observer, 1st on the scene, confirmed 50mm bullet holes in and out of the front of the MH plane, showing must be 2 jet fighters.. seems they had tucked in under MH to evade radar, also a missile hole into Capt’s. seat and one cannon graze on top of the right wing. On duty Ukie. air traffic controller murdered. German rocket expert confirmed no sign of a BUK type near-plane explosion. (Me? Rtd Airline Check Capt.). You?
Russia should use satellites and should stop the transfer of weapons at the Western border of Ukraine to reduce tension at the front for its own army.
First NATO smuggled ATGMs to Ukraine by using civilian cars to judge the Russian President’s response. As they found that responses were negative so then they openly transferred a large quantity of howitzers, tanks and guided missiles. Said thanks to Putin. Now this has created a huge tension for the Russian forces.
The problem for Russia comes from the fact that it’s melting his professional army for nothin. In a few weeks they wouldn’t be able to have the strategical initiative. They will go to defense of not even the whole Donbas. In addition, its capability to threaten anyone with is army has been reduced to zero and no help is expected to help Russia to rebuild its economy, as China is looking to anywhere else, not helping Russia at all. The wars has been the worst political initiative worldwide in 20 years.
China imports 25 percent of Russia’s oil right now and announced publicly a no-limits friendship along with energy cooperation agreements shortly before the operation. Less than a week after the operation began Gazprom came to an agreement with Mongolia to begin work on a pipeline to transit natural gas directly from Yakutia to China with capacity of about 50 billion cubic meters. This will also speed along the internationalization of the yuan as Russia begins to trade with China as they do with Iran and as they posture towards doing with Saudi Arabia. The icing on the cake for me is that the Europeans and Americans haven’t told their citizens that all the new LNG ships that will be needed from Europe’s flow being diverted to China have to be built in China as they have the only manufacturing infrastructure that can build the ships fast enough to meet the demand of Europe and specialize in LNG carriers. So if you blatantly lie about Sino-Russian relations why should anyone believe any of the other bullshit that you sputter?
Crime should be killed in the bud. Russia should stop the NATO’s weapons smuggling across Ukrainian border.
Is Ukraine now the Red Army of 1942?
The current regime in Ukraine has no chance to stay solvent, other than choosing capitulation very quickly, which the puppet leader simply will not do. (Though even if he did, the debt would be so great it would be a difficult and onerous economic recovery—so it may actually be best for the state to dissolve). The failed state can start life anew. Poland and Hungary can absorb the westernmost parts. Romania the farmland and marshland to the west of Odessa, Russia the South, plus a strip up along Transnistria (forming an L shape, which connects Transnistria with the Donbass republics. The remaining central bulk would need to elect and rebuild a new government.
Many in the central bulk would probably choose to join the Russian affiliated sector as they often did before the American/EU coup.
That would be good to see. They have been under propaganda psyops, which started some years before the coup. (So the whoke Ukr population has been subjected to a decade+ of psyops.)
WHY DON’T YOU PUT THE VIDEOS ON TELEGRAM..YOU HAVE AWFUL BANDWIDTH CAN’T WATCH ANYTHING
Is it true Kiev regime plans to mobilize another 1 million?
why not, its not like it will make a difference. conscripts will last as long as they did in debaltseve battle. if they are lucky.
The world owes President Putin and the Russian people a debt of gratitude for their efforts in eradicating the scourge of fahclsm and nahtzism where-ever it rears it’s ugly head.
First germany, and now 75 years later …. in uKRAPistan !
God bless you President Putin and the people you lead !
I LOVE THE SMELL OF BURNT UKRAINIAN IN THE MORNING ! ! !
Putin should stop the transfer of NATO’s weapons and thousands of fighters at the Ukrainian border using its own satellites and missiles. Kill the crimes in the buds. Russian lives matter. Drain the swamp.
Russia military command is very poor and incompetent. Theirs’s blunders cause may Russia casualties and prolong war.
