    Southfront is reporting that Volnovakha has been liberated from the Ukronazis.

    source

    The Russian Defense Ministry has officially announced that the city of Volnovakha (between Donetsk and Mariupol), one of the key defense points of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the east of the country, is now completely under the control of Russian and DPR units. The DPR also took control of Olginka, Velyka-Anadol and Zelenyi Gai settlements. Advancement in depth in this section of the front was up to 6 kilometers.

    This key event of the last days of the war means a collapse of the Ukrainian forces in the region and seizure of Mariupol in the coming days.

    Four days ago, Ukrainian President Zelensky awarded the town the title of a Hero-City of Ukraine for “worthy resistance to armed aggression. The city was used to house the Kiev regime’s most odious nationalist units, which were repeatedly accused of mass torture and murder of the region’s Russian-speaking residents.

    On the morning of March 11, Russian long-range precision-guided weapons struck Ukrainian military infrastructure, including military airfields in Lutsk and Ivano-Frankivsk in the west of the country.

    Russian Armed Forces units continued their offensive, advancing 17 kilometers.

    Dr.Snufflebug wrote:Yes, seems like Lutsk, Ivano-Frankivsk and Dnipro were all struck by cruise missiles this morning.

    The target in Lutsk was reportedly the "Motor" plant, which is the only remaining enterprise in Ukraine that services and overhauls MiG-29 engines.

    Also, a Tupolev drone (141/143) seems to have flown all the way to Zagreb, Croatia. No joke. Crashed there late last night with its recovery parachutes deployed. No injuries reported, but a lot of surprised Croatian faces for sure.

    This will be interesting to see what it's about. My first thoughts are 1. Ukrainian attempt to get NATO involved somehow, or 2. a Russian decoy that was supposed to bait Ukrainian SAMs but that somehow flew all the way through. It had to have been launched from Belarus in that case, as its range is not sufficient to reach Croatia from the Russian mainland. From Ukraine it has enough range.

    Either way, it must also have flown through an entire NATO country in the first place (Hungary, Romania) to have reached Croatia (also NATO). So that makes me wonder about the state of the air defenses there.

    This is related

    Unidentified flying object crashing in the capital of Croatia. Object that fell looks like a part of an aircraft engine. Crater is 3m wide and 1m deep

    Made a fairly decent crater for a drone lol

    I think someone needs to tell Biden tariffs work both ways he has learnt that more sanctions etc he does the worse it gets for USA citizens. lol!

    Ukraine might have been accepted but it's years away most likely over a decade away on meeting the criteria. Other countries waiting still haven't met criteria. If Ukraine ever did join it would be a massive drain on EU. The amount money need to pump into Ukraine to make it anywhere near EU levels would bankrupt EU

    Updates

    1) President of Lithuania Gitanas Nausėda:A historic night at Versailles. After five hours of heated discussions EU leaders said yes to Ukrainian eurointegration. The process started. Now it is up to us and Ukrainians to accomplish it fast. Heroic Ukrainian nation deserves to know that they are welcome in EU

    2) Russian Embassy in US Demands That Washington Hold Meta to Account Over Extremist Activities After Company Allows Calls for Violence Against Russians

    3) Joe Biden on Friday Will Propose to End Normal Trade Relations With Russia, Increase Tariffs on Russian Imports - Reports

    If NATO can supply weapons to Ukraine so that those weapons are used to kill Russian soldiers, absolutely no reason why the Kremlin should not hit those NATO supply lines the moment they enter Ukraine.

    I would make sure any NATO weapons captured are given to Terror groups and criminal gangs in the west. The government's there can get a taste of their own medicine. And then once weapons are found, seized, etc they will only have themselves to blame.

    Let's be truthful here most of these weapons will end up on the black market. To say they will end up in terrorists hands, well it's too late for that they currently are in terrorists hands Ukrainian Nazi squads. The west never learns from this tactic. Let me hope stingers start taking down EU presidential aircraft.

    Why they weren't hit in the first place? When it will happen? After 8 months? Polish trucks even enter Ukrainian territory with weaponry. There are no controls over western border.

    First of all, those are distributed by civilian vehicles, making it hard to catch.
    The very same story was already trained back in 2014, this is how Ukros trafficked weaponry into Crimea.

    Drone in Croatia was a Tu141 drone. Uncertain who launched it and from where. Not inside Russia as it wouldn’t have made it that far. Maybe Ukraine or from inside Belarus

    Putin announcing 16000 middle eastern volunteers want to fight in Ukraine and Russia will facilitate their arrival.

    This confirms Russia's special operation's push to Ukrainian west:

    Moscow confirms airstrikes in western Ukraine
    The Russian military reported hitting airfields in the cities of Lutsk and Ivano-Frankivsk


    On Friday morning, Russia carried out strikes on military infrastructure sites in western Ukraine using long-range precision weapons, the Defense Ministry said in a briefing. The strikes destroyed airfields near the cities of Lutsk and Ivano-Frankivsk, the military claimed.

    The attacks were confirmed by regional authorities in both cities, which are located in the southwest and northwest of Ukraine, respectively.

    Syrians (there are still war to be won in their country?) fighting in Ukraine.

    They will definitely be much of help as they all know the environment so much and are very professional. I bet Russian military leadership can't wait to have such soldiers side by side Rolling Eyes

    FFS, Syrians need to finish securing their whole country and not to fight in Ukraine where they will be grinded to a pulp by artillery. Does Russia need any more soldiers or it's just trolling?

    About that cruise missile in Zagreb , I read it was fired from Belarus . Flew straight into capital city . I think it was a line in the sand , or declaration of intent . Still no news coverage in the western media ! Therefore they do not want to go to war with Russia , over NATO expansion in Eastern Europe . So they better withdraw support for Ukraine and scrap plans for EU membership , and retreat to 97 lines , as demanded by Russia . Otherwise Europe has many capitals , and Russia a lot of missiles !

    The hate campaign againts Russia has reached fever pitch in Australia, i have never seen such hate directed at any country in my 30 years living here.
    I just ordered some food on a delivery app and they are collecting money to send to Ukraine military, (yes military not humanitarian) i have never seen anything like this before, everyone is acting like we are at war with Russia which says alot about the mindset of westerners and if Russia thinks these people will ever be cordial with them, its a huge mistake.

    this is not a cruise missile, but a Tu-141 reconnaissance UAV developed back in the seventies in the USSR. He remained in service with Ukraine, it is unlikely that they are in Russia and Belarus somewhere outside the museums of military equipment
