    Something definitely up in Belarus, if only poking NATO. 40-50 tank of similar transports headed towards train stations to meet incoming Russian armour.

    Kyiv in a panic: "Belarusian troops are preparing to strike" and the Russian army is accumulating near the border of Belarus to invade Western Ukraine

    The expectations of some analysts are that a possible incursion of Belarusian forces would be used to block the border with Poland, from where weapons from Western countries are almost non-stop.

    BTW, the story of 2 million rapes in Germany by the Red Army is the same sort of rabid lie that is being spread by Kiev now.
    In 1945 the Nazi regime was spreading the same sort of agitprop. That Beevor took such insane lies and turned them into
    historical "fact" shows that there is an agenda in the west to launder the Nazis. The "z" is key in NATzO.

    The 19th Rocket Brigade that sent the Tochka-U to Donetsk City killing over 20 people and injuring many more has been struck
    by a Russian Kalibr. Apparently nine regime soldiers were eliminated including Alexander Burgart.

    Zhirik is not in good condition, but it's okay LDPR has new young gen which can bang shoes on podium of Duma

    As for Belarus , it's a feint to keep western brigades from moving east

    The bombardment of drones, kalibr, and showing up of Belarusian army contributes to the paralysis of movement in the West

    So mobilization cannot augment troop strength in the east

    Donetsk and Kiev again possess between them 15 to 18 brigades and we can estimate most of them are combat ineffective, as in they are depleted, and cannot conduct large scale movement

    The rest of the country has paltry positions,  Odessa itself has 5 brigades so that it the only other area of VSU concentration

    But once Kiev and Donbass fall, Odessa will be easy to overwhelm

    Dnipro and Zaporizhia have almost nothing there except for teraborona and some battalions of VSU

    I think its a Smerch booster, they drop the spent accelerator when the warhead is detached, and as a result they fall short of the intended target.  Ukro media whores have been presenting them as "proof" that Russia is targeting civilians.... Suspect  Meh, orcs gonna do what orcs do...

    I wish him luck. I kinda like his maverick style, not afraid of saying what he wants, regardless of what others think. The world needs more of such. I'd reckon that Russian politics will be less interesting without him.

    He is getting up there in his age, and I imagine he didn't take care of himself (most of us dont). Add to it, most felt he is what held back the LDPR from ever really gaining foothold. So once he is gone, someone else will take over, maybe someone a bit more savvy in politics and maybe, who knows, LDPR gains more traction in Russian politics and we could see LDPR take over. Some are scared of it because "nationalist" but these guys aren't crazy.

    So, i'm curious how's the Slovakian S-300 deal going.. the German apparently deploy Patriot in Slovakia. This could be a sign that they agree to transfer their only S-300PS battery to Ukraine in exchange of Patriot.

    Thanks again. Via Yandex

    Summary of Strelkov

    Mariupol - Fierce street fighting continues. Gradual slow advance of the DPR troops.
    The Chechen units of the Rosgvardiya continue to diligently fulfill Vladimir Putin's desire to "take care of himself" and skillfully avoid any participation in real combat operations.

    NOTE: Strelkov is a veteran of the Chechen wars and feels a grudge and distrust towards the Chechens. I understand your attitude, but in fairness the Chechens are fighting in Mairupol. That they could do more, I don't go in there anymore, but as Commander Khodakovsky said, the problem is that they are light infantry to clean up, not assault troops.

    West of Volnovakha, the DPR Armed Forces took full control of the village of Stepnoye.
    There is a slow advance towards the largest defense and communications center of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area southwest of Donetsk-Kurakhovo.

    In the vicinity of Marinka and Avdiivka, heavy fighting continues without any significant successes.

    In the area of Popasnaya, Severodonetsk and Lisichansk, the Armed Forces of the PRL continue to slowly "squeeze" the enemy.

    Fighting continues near Kamenka, south of Izyum. The outcome of the struggle is not yet completely clear, but in Slavyansk and Kramatorsk, the enemy is urgently preparing to "repeat Volnovakha". Apparently, the enemy trusts our generals (in their ability to beat their heads against the enemy's fortifications to the last surviving soldier of themselves), as in themselves.



    Summary at midnight - Donetsk sources

    - The shelling of Donetsk by the Ukros continues

    - Heavy shelling by Donbass forces

    In Yelenovka, (south-west of Donetsk) tank cannon fire, Grad rockets and mortars

    In Lugansk the houses are shaking from the artillery fire of 1520.

    ¡And these are not isolated shots!!.¡Like this all day long!!!

    Vasilyevka (Donetsk suburb) - Were hit by GRad rockets.

    And closer to midnight (and long after midnight) in Donetsk (Kiev region) arrivals of 152 artillery shells from the Ukros. Many and often.

    For our part, the era of "we do not respond to Ukrov's provocations" is over!!!! Now response fire and with everything!

    Our people continued to hammer the defense of the enemies today!!

    It is difficult the Ukros have had 8 years to reinforce their positions with e poured concrete, slabs, pillars / sleepers / railway the Mannerheim line was probably built…

    The radio said Ugledar is ours!!! We are waiting for tomorrow's confirmations.

    Marinka- the struggle continues.

    Mariupol - our progress is observed. However, a big city is not an even field, it is difficult to eliminate the enemy when the guys have a constant thought in their head that civilians need to be protected. By the way, the Ukropos do not care about civilians in the least. Several people (about a dozen) injured from there were taken to Donetsk only today.

    Some Donetsk channels write about the advance of our units in the defense of Avdyevka. I don't know, I need to check, and that's only in the morning. (Sladkov, a war correspondent wrote that Uragan heavy rocket launchers were being fired at Ukrainian positions...)

    Sladkov: A single cannon sometimes fires at least 100 shots at Ukrainian troops in the Avdeyevka area in a day.

    And here are hundreds of these weapons.
    For seven years, the DPR gunners were forbidden to shoot, only with the highest permission. And the Ukrainian army and National battalions beat the local population, killed civilians.

    Now comes the most brutal answer. I promised subscribers that I would show pictures of Ukrainian fortifications in this sector. I'm afraid that both the infantry and we will see only pieces of concrete.

    No one knows the exact statistics of artillery fire, they will calculate it later, according to consumption. I can only say that our units fire dozens of shells a day, sometimes they exceed a hundred.

    @Sladkov_plus

    The Importance of Mariupol

    https://slavyangrad.es/2022/03/20/la-importancia-de-mariupol/#more-24110

    Kiev is in a panic: "Belarusian troops are preparing to attack" and the Russian army is massing near the border of Belarus to invade western Ukraine

    Possible entry of Belarus into the war

    This is stated by a number of Ukrainians, including the adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs Vadim Denisenko. He also called the fact that Belarusian diplomats have left Ukraine a "wake-up call."

    "Now I am saying my personal point of view, but I would estimate that the situation of the possibility of introducing Belarus into a military conflict is 60 to 40. A week ago it was 40 to 60.»

    "Their army is relatively small, about 40 thousand people, including the rear, hospitals, etc. In principle, in the West, we are ready for their invasion, we are ready for the fact that Belarusians will be able to cross our border. But we definitely don't need it," he said.

    Belarusian troops are said to be putting on red ribbon armbands as an identification mark and painting red rectangles on armored vehicles.



    TODAY - chronicle of the day, various sources, Telegram channels, local residents, compiled and edited

    07:23 Dzerzhinsk. Residents film artillery firing in the direction of Novgorodsky, renamed by Ukraine as New York.

    07:35 West of Donetsk. A group of DPR troops continues to attack Marinka, and house-to-house battles are going for the fifth day already. Neo-Nazi units and the Ukrainian army have built important fortified areas there, which Russian aviation are helping to destroy.

    07:40 Mariupol. The hero city is being liberated. Fighting continues. Mainly in the industrial zone…

    In the liberated neighborhoods, a new life begins to awaken…

    People come out of the bomb shelters.
    A large-scale evacuation has begun.

    But in the battle zone, the Nazis are still fighting and using people as human shields…
    Residents of the 20th district of Mariupol, employees of Azovstal, told me about this…
    On February 24 and 25, the Nazis of the Azov regiment, under the pretext of maintaining the efficiency of the plant, called many employees of the plant and took them hostage…
    Without words…

    08:30 Official statement Donetsk Republic (fragments)

    The enemy fired on residential areas in fifteen villages 200 shells, bombs and rockets from 120mm to 152mm caliber.

    During 30 days of shelling by Ukrainian troops, 55 civilians were killed and 301 people were injured

    Losses inflicted on the enemy:

    Destroyed: 70 nationalists killed, 3 tanks, 5 armored BTR, 4 armored BMP, a field artillery depot and more than 50 enemy firing points.

    Captured: 2 tanks, 3 armored BTR, "BMP, as well as samples of foreign weapons, AN/TPQ-36 radar and NLAW grenade launchers.

    In the course of the cleansing of the Marinka settlement from Ukrainian nationalists, 15 soldiers of the 54th Mechanized Brigade voluntarily left their weapons and went over to the side of the Donetsk People's Republic in TWO BMP infantry fighting vehicles.

    NOTE: As observed by the parties and the reports, this is a war of small units, platoons and companies, there are tens of thousands fighting, but the fronts are so large and the troops are so scattered that except in the encircled cities it is rare to see major company-scale fighting. In total, the Ukrainians lost 70 dead and probably the same number of wounded. Attention is drawn to the soldiers who have gone over. More or less by this week symptoms of the enemy's crumbling were expected, and surrenders of small groups surrendering with weapons are already beginning to appear. In Kiev two dozen men surrendered, in Izyum a major surrendered.

    https://t.me/zvezdanews/73500

    08:30 OFFICIAL STATEMENT RUSSIAN ARMY (excerpts, abbreviated)

    Donetsk militia seized Stepnoye and pursues retreating units of the 53rd Mechanized Brigade

    Destroyed: 25 men, 2 tanks, 2 BMO infantry fighting vehicles and 5 off-road vehicles.

    In the direction of NOVOSELOVKA TWO, the units of the Donetsk Republic advanced to a depth of up to three kilometers, crossed the Kamenka-VERKHNETORETSKOYE highway and are in combat with the first parachute battalion of the 25th Airborne Brigade.

    VERKHNETORETSKOYE During the night, most of the settlement was taken under control, where battles are fought with the second battalion of the same brigade (the 25th)

    Destroyed: 40 men, 5 BTR armored personnel carriers and 4 off-road vehicles overnight. The offensive actions continue.

    They apparently killed the commander of the 25th Brigade

    Since the beginning of the special military operation, 207 unmanned aerial vehicles, 1,467 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 148 multiple launch rocket systems, 573 field artillery guns and mortars, as well as 1,262 units of special military vehicles have been destroyed.

    According to the count up to 12.00 on March 20, 2022, Ukraine's losses today amount to 828 dead, wounded and prisoners.

    08:45

    Transporter trucks with T-72B3 tanks on the streets of Melitopol. Judging by the lack of operational signals or damage to equipment, the video shows the transfer of reinforcements for the subsequent offensive in the Donbass or in the Zaporozhe region.

    There is no war, but a special operation

    Russia deploys 50,000 men and some rosgvardiya to guard cities

    Right now they are creating military administration's to govern the cities

    Russia won't speed anything up, it will rain bombs on VSU and nazis 24/7 365

    The demilitarization and denazification process cannot be sped up, because you must eliminate each nazi 1 by 1

    So it will most likely be a long process like Syria

    Russia will conduct operations there for a long time

    Uragan or Smerch missile engine/fuel part. Warhead is gone.

    Edit : considering the size, Smerch.

    Edit 2 : naaah, reconsidered Laughing As the gas plate is standard 60 cm, the missile is less than half of it, which makes 220 mm Uragan, not 300 mm Smerch.

    There is a slow advance towards the largest defense and communications center of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area southwest of Donetsk-Kurakhovo.


    Looks like we need to watch out for the fate of this key location.

    Its 10 miles due west of Donetsk and the next town on the road going west from Marinka.

    I think soon, nazis will be bussed from Mariupol to Donetsk, but the bombardment should increase

    Donetsk resembles Idlib

    Odessa and right bank Ukraine are like Qamishli

    Forces will be there in later stages, as Donetsk (idlib) is cleaned up

    Kiev represents Damascus, so this area will be taken as administrative and governance roles are created

    There are many parallels with Ukraine and Syria, Dnieper River being like a sort of Euphrates river

    Russia does expect some European incursion, but with Belarus there, it prevents a Kurdistan (galicia) from being built

    ⚡⚡⚡ last night 🇷🇺troops were thrown back on 60-70 km from the capital #Kyiv. Most of 🇷🇺its units suffered enormously high casualties they never had since WWII. 331 airborne brigade has only one servicemen survived. 🇷🇺 military Contractors refuse to be deployed to fight in 🇺🇦!

    As for Belarus , it's a feint to keep western brigades from moving east

    The bombardment of drones, kalibr, and showing up of Belarusian army contributes to the paralysis of movement in the West

    So mobilization cannot augment troop strength in the east

    Donetsk and Kiev again possess between them 15 to 18 brigades and we can estimate most of them are combat ineffective, as in they are depleted, and cannot conduct large scale movement

    The rest of the country has paltry positions,  Odessa itself has 5 brigades so that it the only other area of VSU concentration

    But once Kiev and Donbass fall, Odessa will be easy to overwhelm

    Dnipro and Zaporizhia have almost nothing there except for teraborona and some battalions of VSU

    It makes sense to enter Dnepropetrovsk and Zaporozhia then, agree with their elites if possible, like what is being attempted with Krivoj Rog

    Because the LDNR's people's militia is already recruiting in Kherson and apparently people are signing up, receiving weapons

    This is more important than more bloody city battles at the moment. Turning the Russian vs Ukrainian conflict into a pro-Russian Ukrainian vs anti-Russian Ukrainian one. Doing that will help isolate the regime from the people, and the radicals from ordinary Ukrainian soldiers.

    Above all it's necessary to refrain from any more 'punishing' strikes such as the one against the barracks of the regiment in Nikolayev. Yes those guys were annoying and conducted some artillery strikes, but it's quite horrifying to just level a barracks like that, whose commander was too dumb to deploy his troops to patrols and field positions before beginning combat actions.

    Such 'demoralization' attacks are associated with the Nazis from WW2. It's going to horrify a lot of people and wipe out any chance of sympathy, especially since a certain proportion of these servicemen are local.

    Unfortunately neither the Russian military nor political command has shown any great skill or understanding of obvious things in this conflict so far.
    They have proven that they are able to adapt and adjust quickly at the very least. But I think the barracks strike was a mistake and it will alienate Nikolayev's population.
