    OSCE staff in Mariupol ran away so fast that they forgot to destroy evidence. Evidence of thousands of war crimes
    perpetrated by the Kiev regime the Donbass that the OSCE subsequently covered up or ignored.

    #UKRAINE—#Russia has shared with #Zelensky’s administration lists containing names of over 4,000 #Ukraine|ian #POW|s, including 300 officers, held by #RF. These lists DO NOT INCLUDE neo-#Nazis and individuals suspected of warcrimes and crimes against humanity.

    #RUSSIA—#Ukraine has nowhere near the numbers to organize a 1-1 exchange: Numbers of #RF #POWs held by Ukraine are by at least an order of magnitude lesser. #RF is agreeing only to 1-1 exchanges and is refusing attempts by Ukraine to exchange #UA civilians for its soldiers.

    Ineffectiveness of Western anti-tank weapons

    To date, more than 7000 Javelin anti-tank systems have been sent to Ukraine. Ukraine consumes 1 week of Javelin in one day.

    Only 269 Soviet tanks have been destroyed with visual confirmation

    There is panic among the leaders of the United States, as reported by American military analysts, about running out of Javelin and about its ineffectiveness against Russian tanks. 1/3 of the total US reserve has been depleted in the old Soviet tanks, that is, according to the Pentagon.

    The 269 visually confirmed losses are also not a concrete number, as many have been photographed twice and some misidentified. But the number will be out there
    YESTERDAY 24 April

    Military analysis of the situation in Ukraine for April 24, 2022. (Readovka and completed with other infromes)

    Easter day in the special operation passed quietly - the news from the front lines is the minimum.

    In general, the state of the front is static. Both sides are accumulating forces and exchanging artillery attacks. There was an increase in artillery pressure on the positions, locations and infrastructure of the Ukrainian army and territorial battalions in Nikolaev and its environs. Ukrainians are waiting for the Russian advance to the west. Based on this, they are trying to strengthen the barriers with the help of a reserve arriving from Odessa and the central regions of Ukraine.

    Zaporozhe-Donetsk Front

    Intensive shelling of the artillery of the Russian Armed Forces is underway in the Zaporozhye direction. along the entire southern line, there is a reinforced "artillery waltz".

    Note: "Feuerwaltze" or "artillery waltz" descriptive name for the sophisticated artillery bombing techniques developed during the First World War and whose maximum exponent was Colonel Bruchmüller, architect of the bombings in the German offensives of 1918 that broke the stalemate of the Western Front.

    As the name suggests, it is a dance or intricate choreography with changes of objective, frequency and intensity of bombing, to among other things induce the defenders to leave their shelters when the shooting lengthens or there is a pause and occupy the trenches, thinking that the assault is imminent only to be bombed out of the shelter protection. And so again and again.

    What the informant means is that a complex and intense artillery preparation is underway, to soften and disorganize the enemy and achieve tactical surprise, because when bombing many targets, the defender will not know where or when the attack will take place.

    Noteworthy is the capture of Malinovka and the encirclement by the Northeast of Gulyai-pole.



    In Mariupol, the planned cleaning of "Azovstal" from the remains of the Azov soldiers and Nazis who have settled there continues. In general, the city is freed from the enemy. it is possible to talk about the transition to a peaceful life only after the complete cleansing of Azovstal.

    Donbass Front
    Artillery fire on Maryinka, Avdeyevka and Peski also intensified. There is no infantry advance yet. Intense house-to-house fighting is taking place in Popasnaya. Most of the city is under the control of the Allied forces. Today, the village of Novotoshkovskoye, at the eastern end of the Donbass salient, an important fortified position, like all those on the former line of contact, came completely under the control of the People's Militia of the LPR.

    video: https://t.me/chervonec_001/9333

    From the north, Russian Forces reached the border of the Kharkov and Donetsk regions.

    Ukrainian Forces began to move troops from Severodonetsk and Lysychansk to the Popasnaya area in order to stop the advance of the advancing Allied forces.

    North
    South of Izyum, Russian Forces are gradually expanding the springboard for the offensive in Slavyansk and Kramatorsk. The advance of the troops is slow, but effective, with a daily increase in territories liberated from the enemy.

    In the village of Suligovka, south of Izyum there were fierce battles there for several days, until the Russians took it, it is full of abandoned corpses of Ukrainian soldiers. The heights and the nearby forest belts are cleared. And they advance towards Kurulki

    The first northern settlements of the Donetsk People's Republic were liberated. The units and formations of the Second Army liberated the localities of Lozovoye (on the east bank of the Oskol reservoir) and Redkodub. Fighting is already underway in the Yampol area.



    There are no changes in the direction of Kharkov. The only significant event during these days is an unsuccessful attempt by the Ukrainian Forces from the area north of Dergachy to attack the positions of the Russian Armed Forces in the Kazachaya Lopan area. Ukrainian armored infantry fighting vehicles tried to advance to the Russian positions and try to attack them. The enemy column defeated on the march by artillery and finished off by infantry. Having suffered losses of personnel and material, the Ukrainian units were forced to withdraw.



    TODAY 25 April

    Statement Russian army 19:00 hours

    ▪ Long-range and high-precision weapons destroyed six substations in the areas of RED, ZDOLBUNOV, ZHMERINKA, BERDICHEV, KOVEL and KOROSTEN railway stations, through which foreign weapons and military equipment of the Ukrainian group of forces in Donbass are supplied.

    ▪ During the day, 27 military installations of Ukraine were hit by high-precision air-launched missiles.
    Including destroyed: four command posts, an ammunition depot in the SLAVYANSK region of the Donetsk People's Republic, the headquarters of the Pravy Sektor terrorist group on NOVOGRODOVKA, as well as 16 bastions and places of concentration of troops and military equipment.

    ▪ The operational-tactical and military aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces hit 82 military installations of Ukraine during the day.
    Among them: 4 command posts, 76 areas of concentration of manpower and military equipment of the enemy, as well as two fuel depots.

    ▪ The missile troops achieved 15 hits.
    The following were hit: the starting position of the Tochka-U tactical missile system, three command posts, an artillery battery and 10 areas of concentration of manpower and military equipment.
    Up to 40 personnel and 17 armored personnel carriers and vehicles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were destroyed.

    ▪ Russian air defense systems shot down four Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles in the IZYUM, DONETSK and KHARKOV areas in one day.

    ▪ In total, since the beginning of the special military operation, 141 aircraft, 110 helicopters, 570 unmanned aerial vehicles, 265 anti-aircraft missile systems, 2554 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 283 rocket launchers, 1104 field artillery guns and mortars, as well as 2380 units of special military vehicles have been destroyed.

    during the day, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost 348 killed, wounded D and captured. The total losses in killed, wounded and captured in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, National Guard and SBU are more than 44 thousand men.

    14:45. Kurulki came under the control of the Russian army. Fighting is underway in the village of Pashkovo, 15 km east of Barvenkovo and 5 km from the railway.

    This attack means that the Barvenkovo – Slavyansk highway and railway are already under artillery fire which will significantly limit the supply of the Ukrainian army in the area, as well as prevent thousands of Ukrainian terrorists from retreating.

    However, the criticism of the fighters is intensifying because the Ukrainian railway system is not being attacked with sufficient energy. Like this:

    "Now the Russian Forces are advancing in the Donbass: success is developing more actively from the north, in the Izyum - Liman direction... ero for some reason the enemy continues to replenish supplies of material resources and weapons along the still working railway.

    Ammunition of all kinds was delivered on the trains from cartridge cans to nando anti-tank missiles. Civilian "evacuation" trains deliver replacements from Rivne and Ternopil - we are not even talking about rotation, but about the delivery of new batches of "cannon fodder".

    Tonight, for example, another batch of recruits from western Ukraine will be sent by rail. And again on the same bridges across the Dnieper.»



    21:00 Rubezhnoye has been completely liberated, the Ukrainians held out for weeks in the southern part of the city. It is noteworthy that they have managed to expel the Banderists from their fortified positions, using the element of surprise, which indicates the general weakening of the Ukrainian forces on the entire front.

    "After successfully capturing the militants' positions, the fighters continued their offensive, thereby liberating the entire residential area of the city of Rubizhne. The "brave" Ukrainian defenders retreated so quickly that, just in case, they blew up the bridge connecting the city of Rubezhnoye and the village of Novodruzheske, behind which the main support base of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is located.»



    Statement of the Donetsk Republic (fragment)

    2. Since the beginning of the current day, the DPR military has destroyed thirty-two Ukrainian nationalists, six firing points, one tank and two infantry fighting vehicles. An armored personnel carrier, a ZU-23-2 anti-aircraft gun and a cargo vehicle were captured.

    3. Five servicemen of the Donetsk People's Republic were killed in the line of duty, and seventeen were injured.

    Note: With due reservation, the report like the previous ones seems plausible and true to reality, it seems that the casualty ratio is favorable to the Donetsk ones in a 1 to 3 ratio, it is also not that the Donetsk troops are engaged in active sectors now. In general, it seems that the ratio of own losses to those of the enemy increases to 1 to 5 or more, as the Ukrainian resistance capacity weakens once the fortified lines are broken and their artillery is silenced, due to destruction of the pieces or lack of ammunition.



    Summary of the day April 25 - Boris Rozhin (Cassad)

    1. Mariupool. No news. The Nazis cornered in Azovstal do not surrender and sporadic fighting in the northeastern part of the factory.

    2. Zaporozhe.
    There are no changes to the Vasilyevka—Orekhov—Gulyai-Pole line. On Vasilyevka the Russian flag was raised. East of Gulyai-Pole fighting. The Ukrainian army admits that Russian army achieved a breakthrough of 7-10 km. The main breakthrough e Gulyai-Pole and Velikaya Novoselka, the advance is slow.

    3. Ugledar.
    Serious fighting in the area of Novomikhailovka and Velikaya Novoselovka. There is no significant progress.

    4. Maryinka.
    There is no significant progress and, as before, positional battles are taking place near the rubble hill.

    5. Avdeyevka.
    There are no changes in the Avdiivka industrial park. The battles for Novoselka-2 are intensifying. The DPR army will clearly seek to cut off the Konstantinovka-Avdeyevka highway. Heading to New York, no change.

    6. Lugansk
    They are fighting near the outskirts of Rubizhne and on the outskirts of Severodonetsk. In Popasna, already the army of the RPL has a small breakthrough in the city center. Today they took Novotoshkovskoye, where a powerful fortified area was located

    7. Izyum.
    The troops continue to advance towards the Barvenkovo—Slavyansk highway. Fighting is taking place near the villages of Kurulka and Pashkovo. The village of Zarechnoye was taken, after which a direct exit to Krasny Liman was opened. The enemy is trying to force the open flank of the advancing group, attacking from the west and claiming to have occupied the village of Zavody west of Izyum.

    8.Kharkiv.
    Positional battles to the north and east of the city. Attempts to move in the direction of Hoptovka resulted in heavy losses for the Ukrainian Forces. There are attacks on the village of Nekhoteyevka on the territory of the Russian Federation. The battles here are mostly positional in nature.

    9. Nikolayev.
    The parties do not conduct an active offensive, they are engaged in the accumulation of forces. In the tactical confrontation in the villages between Kherson and Nikolaev, the front line shifted a little towards Nikolayev. Attempts by the Ukrainian Armed Forces to attack from Novovorontsovka were repelled. The garrison of Krivoy Rog says that the Russian army is preparing an offensive against the city.

    10. Odessa.
    No change. The enemy does not exclude the possibility of a landing and continues to strengthen the defense of the city, although part of the forces were previously transferred to the Nikolayev region. Ukraine continues to receive fuel and lubricants from Moldova and weapons from NATO countries through the Odessa region.



    Izyum Front Reports - Сларше Адды

    https://t.me/vysokygovorit



    Tactics of the enemy

    I would like to mention such an element of the tactics of the Ukrainian army as the construction of defensive lines along the forest belts. In the Izyum-Slavyansk direction, there are a huge number of such belts and forests, and almost in each of these stripes, there is an enemy unit that varies from a platoon to a company.

    On the edge of the forest there are observation posts, soldiers hide in the depths. After our troops are detected from the enemy's observation post, the main units approach and get into ready-made and camouflaged trenches, and open fire, and after a short skirmish with the use of anti-tank missiles, machine guns and rifles, the Ukrainian troops withdraw.

    The tactics are quite sensible, but if the enemy is discovered by our troops earlier, then he is lost. It is impossible to leave the forest belt, our artillery begins to bombard the forest hard, and then it is cleared by motorized infantry and tanks.
    It all ends with the complete destruction of the defenders.

    I talked to a prisoner and he told me that half of the unit was destroyed by artillery fire even before the attack of our tanks.



    Interrogation of prisoners - ignorance of the situation

    The text of my friend, who fully agrees with him, came to the same conclusions as a result of conversations with numerous prisoners.

    "A little reflection on the fact that the captured Ukrainians do not know the big picture of the fighting.

    All the prisoners captured by our military in the Izyum area could not even confidently name their right and left neighbors (which contradicts the basics of tactics), not to mention the location of the headquarters and other positions. And the point here is not in his character, stubbornness or desire to keep the state secret at all costs. Everything is much more prosaic.

    The command sending units to the front line deliberately did not inform them about the specifics of the disposition of their troops. The reason for this is the early confidence in the destruction and capture of his soldiers. So they don't need to know anything.

    Indeed, sending more and more cannon fodder into battle, the commanders did not even have a shadow of hope that their fighters could somehow oppose the Russian Army in battles. Therefore, they were abandoned in the open field in blissful ignorance of future events and their fate.»

    Shortage of machine guns

    A couple of weeks ago it was reported that in Ukrainian workshops PKM machine guns were removed from destroyed or unrepairable armored vehicles and buttstocks and bipods were put on them to hand them over to the infantry, and that NATO delivers weapons of this type to Ukraine. Photos of Spanish 7.62mm ammunition boxes for the MG-3 machine gun have been seen among the captured material.

    Another reason for the shortage of is that there are no supplies and weapons for the three territorial brigades, numbers 101-102-103 that are being enlisted in western Ukraine. There are a lot of weapons in Ukraine, but they are sent to the front or "lost" on the way. As a result, it gets to the point that the mobilized citizens and volunteers, who are going to be used at the front as cannon fodder, have to buy the necessary equipment themselves.



    Other news of interest;

    The lie of the Bucha massacre: it was the work of the Ukrainians

    Anyone who has researched the beginning of the war in 2014 and knows about atrocities such as the Odessa massacre or the bombing of Donbass knows that the Ukrainian regime has been committing war crimes for years and killing civilians in order to generate headlines and blame Russia. The Donbass thing is routine, the Bucha thing is only news because it was in the vicinity of Kiev.

    It has already been proven, by the silence of the media, that Ukraine fires Tochka missiles at civilians. In Bucha, to summarize, bombed the population with projectiles loaded with darts of steel (flechettes) to not leave craters or remnants of shrapnel or corpses dismembered, as often do the shrapnel, and maintain the fiction that the dead in the streets had been executed by shooting. What they don't tell you is that there were executions of civilians, but on the Ukrainian side, there is a video of Ukrainian paramilitaries shooting civilians wearing identification bracelets, just for being "collaborators" with the Russians

    More details on the Chervonets blog.

    The return of the Cossacks

    Cossack volunteer units played an important role in the war in 2014, between the heroic and the disappointing, and this time they have again answered the call to arms.

    Cossack battalions participating in a special operation in Ukraine have been fighting for Donbass on the front line for a month

    To date, there are two Cossack regiments and several battalions in the area of the special operation. As part of various military formations, about 4 thousand Cossacks from all Cossack societies and organizations in Russia are fighting together with soldiers of the Russian army.

    The Kuban Cossacks of the Ataman Platov regiment, Ataman Chepegi and the 1st Crimean. The Cossacks of the Don and Tavrida divisions went to the battlefield. In the near future, the number of Cossacks participating in the special operation will increase to 5.5 thousand, and three more Cossack detachments will join the battles for the Donbass. At the beginning of April, more than 1,400 Cossacks took part in the fighting.



    Terror attack on Russian journalists foiled

    The FSB showed footage of the arrest of neo-Nazis planning the murders of Solovyov, Skabeeva, Kiselyov, Simonyan (Russia Today) and other Russian journalists



    The betrayal of the OSCE exposed

    At the OSCE headquarters in Mariupol, the staff left the archive. All OSCE field reports from 2014 have been found and thousands of war crimes committed in Ukraine have been documented, which the OSCE later concealed in the official reports of the mission in Ukraine.
    In addition, a warehouse of Italian-made mortar shells was found in the garage of the OSCE building at 25 Primorskiy Boulevard, Mariupol. The labels on the boxes indicate that they were packed for delivery by sea 2022-3-11.
    For the monitoring organization, at least the supply of weapons to one of the parties to the conflict is strange. It becomes clear that there is no healthy stir around the OSCE employees who were captured by the DPR armed forces and the "devastating" articles of the BBC and other "truthful" media!

    The OSCE staff in Mariupol abandoned their archive. All OSCE field reports since 2014 were found, with reportedly thousands of Ukrainian war crimes that were documented, but which were not reported by the OSCE in their official documents.

    Impossible to tell if it's true, that leftover documents show a crazy cover up of UA war crimes, based on only these photos and statements.

    BUT! I did monitor the OSCE SMM reports for months back in the day and did notice that they often clearly downplayed UA ceasefire violations.

    Now, if these retrieved documents actually confirm this in a more concrete fashion, and show that this was systemical remains to be seen. Hoping for scans/digitalization.

    UAV ( a small one) can be adapted to land on rail_track and plant a device! This device is small and sits under or beside the rail. Designed to work, when train makes contact, with wheels. Can land anywhere in Europe, especially near border area. No need to waste missiles or planes flying over. Same with Roads, land beside Road and drop a Rock. Wait for " lethal aid" to pass by!

    I don't think they "forgot"...They took their time to record and in some cases investigate these, but the lid of releasing the truth was closed by their top brass.

    No one was after OSCE, not separatists, not Russians. This article makes sense now.

    lostarmour.info seems to be down most of the time over the past week

    Presumably DDOS attacks or the provider cutting out. A pathetic tactic. Truly pathetic

    Because there are up to a dozen videos each day now with Ukrainian vehicles, tanks, trucks, BMPs simply dismantled in overrun positions. I mean there were thousands before that; around Kiev, Chernigov, Kharkov, Sumy, Nikolayev and in depots, storage sites around the country - but the Ukrainian media-warriors never photograph them unless by accident

    Yet now with so much territory in the Donbass and around Kharkov being cleared, there are just mounds of these videos of broken burned out metal frames everywhere. Gotta stop lostarmour.info cataloging them clown

    Russia says nuclear war ‘unacceptable,’ but danger is real

    Moscow believes there are no winners in a nuclear war, but the danger of it is real, says FM Sergey Lavrov

    It is dangerously close, here there cannot be a timid attempt to detonate 1 or 2

    It must be a full tactical reprisal, let the west climb the escalation ladder

    Satan II must be ready to hit at the US minuteman silos

    We will lose most of our people, but we will survive with the Nudol and S500, at least to block what trident we can

    But if we can get the Satan missiles before they can go to launch on warning

    We can destroy most of the US nuclear force on the ground

    The attempt at the lives of the Russian elite has triggered the most dark conversations

    We are living in a very tense moment

    The west is emboldened to a level not seen before

    That is why the war blunders were costly

    From a conventional only perspective it was only ego

    But now that they are going for the lives of the elite, they realize what a mistake they have made

    The west really believes it will win,

    That's why the Kiev withdrawal was wrong

    We are at the nuclear phase, and they are considering that they will win

    Well thanks to the MIC in this country every congressional district has at least one military base or military related factory so pretty much. Lets see an hour to the east is a major air force base, an hour to the west is a major army base. Not too far from my house I think they still make components for nuclear bombs but they may have done away with that. Yeah, if things ever get really hot I'm done for. The thing is, I didn't want this war and even worse, I could see this thing coming to a head as far back as 2014 when Obama said he didn't need to read Kennan. I really wish he had.

    I don't think so. If from this point Russia only captures the rest of the Donbas and retains its gains in the south, Ukraine will have lost control of territory with 8 million residents (including the current DNR and LNR). It's estimated 5.1 million Ukrainians have fled to central and Western Europe. Vast majority of these will never come back after getting their social welfare benefits. That's a loss of population, long term, of ~12 million, bringing Ukraine's claimed population of 41 million down to 29 million. Natural population loss will run 1/2 million per year, and you have to account for the fact that many of 5 million refugees are young women who will soon be marrying European men.

    I am no longer impressed with the NATO puppet state's long term prospects. Ukraine is on track to be a zombie state.

    It's not about just Ukraine

    The first attempt is just a message

    Margarita Simonyan is not a random politician

    Its like threatening CNN head

    This is a grave event , yes nothing happened , and it was a stunt

    Today

    But tomorrow?

    It's a slippery slope playing these games

    It's not about ego

    It's that they will take the life of someone important and that day we all get screwed

    Yeah and western medias and twitters keep saying Russian run out of missiles etc... Which i found have extremely weak support yet they keep repeating it to the point that it's plain annoying. Otherwise they argued about imported chips etc..

    and some of them start to contradicts themselves particularly when apparently there was an intact guidance section of Kh-101's survived the crash. As usual condescending remarks on how the internals looks 1970's.. and then some of them pointed out such electronics are outdated, can't be supported etc... seemingly oblivious to the obvious that if the electronics are outdated and no longer supported yet make it to 2022... don't they think that the only way to support such is for Russia to actually produce those electronics by herself.

    and then one commentator make remarks that Russia needs to increase production and import substitue which increase the production cost, like it was a disaster to Russia.. without speck of thinking that despite increased production cost... all those money are flowing to FEED the Russians instead feeding foreign manufacturer.

    I was like.. are these guys kidding... Well export money are nice, but Military Industrial Complex exist to serve the country which owns it. Well French could be an exception to this..

    WP: Ukraine asks US for $2bn monthly economic aid

    According to the Minister of Finance of the country, Sergei Marchenko, the funds are required to pay pensions, salaries to healthcare and education workers, as well as other humanitarian needs, the newspaper writes.


    WASHINGTON, 26 April. /TASS/. Kyiv is asking the US administration for at least $2 billion a month in emergency economic assistance, saying that without the funds, Ukraine's humanitarian crisis could worsen. The Washington Post writes about this on Monday, citing Ukrainian Finance Minister Sergei Marchenko.

    "We must fill this gap right now in order to attract the necessary funding and win this war," the minister said in an interview with the publication. According to him, economic support is necessary so that the state can continue to pay pensions, salaries to healthcare and education workers, as well as cover other humanitarian needs.

    According to The Washington Post, during his visit to Washington, Marchenko said at meetings with US officials that Kyiv needed at least $5 billion a month of international assistance to pay its urgent expenses in April, May and June, from of which $2 billion would come from the United States. In addition, an additional request is expected in the future regarding longer-term needs for the reconstruction of the country.

    Late last week, US President Joe Biden announced that Washington would provide an additional $500 million in economic aid to Kyiv. The American leader clarified that these funds are provided to Kyiv to stabilize the economy, pay salaries and provide the population with the necessary services.

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky earlier said that his country would need hundreds of billions of dollars in financial support after the end of hostilities, and Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal estimated the amount of this potential support at $600 billion. Their statements were made during speeches via videoconference at a round table organized by World Bank (WB), which was also attended by WB President David Malpas and Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund Kristalina Georgieva.

    NYT: US prepares for years of confrontation with Russia

    Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin noted the "transformation of the conflict" in Ukraine with a statement about the US intention to weaken Russia, newspaper journalist David Sanger believes


    NEW YORK, 26 April. /TASS/. Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin's statement about the US intention to weaken Russia testifies to Washington's readiness for a long-term confrontation with Moscow. This assessment was made by The New York Times journalist David Sanger in an article published on Monday on the newspaper's website.

    Earlier on Monday, the US Secretary of Defense, during a speech in Poland after visiting Kiev, speaking about Washington's goals in the context of events in Ukraine, noted that the United States "want to see Russia weakened." Thus, according to the journalist, Washington stated the "transformation of the conflict" in Ukraine, which is now characterized by "a more direct confrontation between Washington and Moscow."

    Sanger stressed that at the beginning of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, US President Joe Biden "insisted that he did not want to turn it into a clash between the United States and Russia." Recently, however, "the lines have blurred and the rhetoric has become sharper," the author notes. The "carefully planned" statement by the head of the Pentagon is intended in the coming months to indicate US support for Ukraine in "one form or another of peace negotiations," the author points out, citing sources in the US State Department.

    In the long term, however, Austin's statement indicates that Washington is preparing "for years of confrontation with Moscow for power and influence," Sanger said. This strategy, he states, "is associated with some risks" for the US.

    Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov earlier warned that the militarization of Ukraine by the West directly threatens European and global security. As the diplomat noted, commenting on the supply of weapons to Ukraine, Moscow calls on the sponsors of the Kyiv regime to stop encouraging bloodshed and seriously think about the consequences of their activities.

    Antonov said that the United States is trying by any means to delay Russia's special operation in Ukraine

    According to the Russian ambassador to the United States, Washington "wants to maintain a hotbed of instability in Europe in order to rally allies around itself and maintain positions on the world stage"



    WASHINGTON, 26 April. /TASS/. The United States is trying by all means to delay the special operation of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, trying to inflict maximum damage on Russia. This is stated in the comments of the Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov, published on Monday in the Telegram channel of the Russian diplomatic mission.
    “Obviously, Washington’s actions hide the desire to delay the Russian special operation by any means, trying to inflict maximum damage on Russia, and fight to the last Ukrainian,” Antonov said, recalling that the White House is asking Congress for funds to provide additional military assistance to Ukraine. , although its total volume since the current administration came to power has exceeded $4 billion.

    "The United States wants to maintain a hotbed of instability in Europe. Thus, to rally Western allies around itself in order to maintain the position of the United States on the world stage," Antonov said, noting that the conflict in Ukraine and the image of Russia as an external threat "are actively exploited by the ruling circles to distract attention of voters from their own failures in public administration and the growing coma of political and socio-economic problems in the United States. "All this suggests that the Ukrainian conflict was deliberately provoked by the West," the head of the Russian diplomatic mission stated.

    According to Antonov, the fact that the world is moving towards multipolarity cannot be ignored. "Russia cannot be brought to its knees. Illusory Western projects are a thing of the past," he stressed.

    The Russian ambassador recalled that "a special military operation is not directed against Ukrainians," and its main goals are "protection of the DPR and LPR, the neutral and non-nuclear status of Ukraine, the demilitarization and denazification of this republic." "For our national security, it is important to eliminate the threats emanating from the Ukrainian territory due to its development by NATO. The tasks facing us will be completed in full," Antonov concluded.

    MOSCOW, April 26 - RIA Novosti. The embassies of the LPR and DPR in Moscow will open in the near future, it is possible that within a month or two, a diplomatic source told RIA Novosti. "We will try to (be) done in the near future, the sooner the better. We are engaged in specific work," the agency's interlocutor said.

    He suggested that the LPR and DPR embassies in Moscow could open within "a month or two."

    Since February 22, Russia has established diplomatic relations with the Lugansk and Donetsk People's Republics after recognizing their independence.

    https://ria.ru/20220426/posolstva-1785429517.html

    My opinion, unrelated to the announcement from the RIA; So, everything is clear, because with the opening of the embassies of DPR and LPR, those two areas are falling out of the jurisdiction of Banderistan.
    * GARRY, please add the swastika among the smilies so I can hang it every time I mention Banderistan.
