Spring is arriVing in Donbass.
Regarding Russia and Ukraine:
Phase 2 has started with a massive offense by the Russians. The entire war leading up to this was preparation for the assault.
The Azovstal hold outs in Mariupol are slowly and carefully being eliminated. They include about 400 foreign "mercenaries" from Poland, the UK, Canada and the US. Also about 1,500 Ukrainians including Nazi Azov militants.
There was (in addition to the 4 or more helicopter, and two boat attempts) yet another attempt to rescue them. 200 Ukrainian troops with military equipment tried to storm the location, but they were driven back/slaughtered/taken prisoner by the Russians.
The Russians gave the occupants of Azovstal a window of time to surrender, but intercepted radio communications indicated that Kiev ordered them to not surrender. They are more useful as a PR stunt as martyrs than they are as living people.
There have been numerous fake atrocities committed by the Ukrainians and blamed on the Russians for PR purposes - only to be exposed as false flags once examined.
So far the military moves Ukraine has made are PR moves, having show and morale value but little to none actual strategic value. Now that the prep has been made and phase 2 is in progress the Russians are set to have a very thorough victory. The only question is how far the Russians will go.
From Russia: The Ukrainians set up a Martyrdom of their own soldiers.
"A captive marine named Vitya tells how they tried to escape from the Ilyich plant.
He tells that the whole brigade tried to escape - more than 1500 people. Many had thoughts of giving up, but after two Marines tried to do so, they were caught by their own and disappeared.
Accordingly, if the statement that 1,000 people surrendered is true, then more than 500 soldiers were killed. I want to remind you that the command came to the Marines to break through, they were told by their leadership that help was coming towards them. Moreover, he indicated the direction of movement to the village of Zachatovka, which is located near Volnovakha and has long been under our (Russian) control.
The deaths of these marines are in the hands of Zelensky and this bloody gang. They were deceived in order to make martyrs out of them."
In spite of numerous measures by the Russian to allow safe passage to the people in Azovstal, Kiev has not given permission for them to surrender - sentencing them to a martyr's death of thousands. The Russians used a special mortar to fire leaflets into Azovstal giving clear instructions and times (white flags on perimeter, red flags on perimeter, 3 exits, ambulances and busses standing by, Geneva Conventions for POWs).
Standing orders to the Ukrainians from Kiev is to shoot anyone who says they want to surrender. This policy has been followed for weeks. An example:
In the port of Mariupol, the body of a senior sailor of the marine corps of the Ukrainian fleet Ivan Anatolyevich Krapovoy was found, who was shot from behind, by his own. He had no equipment, but there was a leaflet under the body - the conditions for surrender. Obviously, at the time of the murder by "his own", he was going to go out to the troops of the DPR and save his life. https://t.me/intelslava/25928 Another example: Azov soldiers shot in the backs of soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine who decided to use leaflets-passes https://t.me/intelslava/25941
"Biden said that he will throw Russia back to 19th century.
Russian atlas according to 19th century …"
How much territory will Ukarine lose?
Residents of the village of Rozovka, Zaporozhye region, voted at a people's meeting for joining the Donetsk People's Republic.
Thus, the territory of the DPR is expanding beyond the borders of the former Donetsk region of Ukraine.
In the village of Rozovka and the Rozovsky district of the Zaporozhye region, the authorities of the DPR will begin to work. The legal status of the district will be determined later, but de facto the district will be part of the Donetsk People's Republic.

Russia publishes data on foreign fighters in Ukraine (US, Canada, UK, Poland...)
"400 foreign fighters remain trapped in Mariupol, where Kiev forces have refused an offer to surrender.
An estimated 6,824 foreign mercenaries from 63 countries have come to Ukraine to fight for Volodymyr Zelensky’s government, the Russian Defense Ministry stated on Sunday. Of these, 1,035 have been “destroyed,” while several thousand remain. Four hundred foreign fighters are holed up in Mariupol, where nationalist forces, including the neo-Nazi fighters, have refused to surrender.
The most numerous group of foreign fighters (1,717) arrived from Poland, while around 1,500 came from the US, Canada and Romania. Up to 300 people each came from the UK and Georgia, while 193 arrived from the Turkish-controlled areas of Syria.
These figures were announced on Sunday by Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov. According to the general, 1,035 foreign mercenaries have been killed by Russian forces and 912 fled Ukraine, leaving 4,877 active in the cities of Kiev, Kharkov, Odessa, Nikolaev and Mariupol.
Roughly 400 of these foreign fighters remain embedded with Ukrainian nationalist battalions in the besieged port city of Mariupol, Konashenkov stated. With most of the city under Russian control, these forces have dug in at the sprawling Azovstal metallurgical plant, a gargantuan Soviet-built factory complex spread over 11 square kilometers.
“Most of them are citizens of European countries, as well as Canada,” Konashenkov stated, adding that Russian forces have intercepted radio communications from the plant in six foreign languages. After the surrender of more than 1,000 members of Ukraine’s 36th Marines Brigade at the Ilyich Steel and Iron Works in Mariupol earlier this week, which Ukraine denies, the Russian military offered the defenders at Azovstal a final chance to lay down their arms and surrender on Sunday morning, promising that “all who lay down their weapons are guaranteed the preservation of life.”
No such surrender took place, and the pounding of heavy guns could be heard near the plant on Sunday afternoon. “In case of further resistance, all of them will be destroyed,” Konashenkov said.
“Let me remind you that foreign mercenaries do not have the status of ‘combatants’ under International Humanitarian Law,” Konashenkov said. “They came to Ukraine to earn money by killing Slavs. Therefore, the best that awaits them is criminal liability and long prison terms.”
Within days of Russia’s military assault on Ukraine, the government in Kiev promised visa-free entry for foreigners willing to take up arms against Moscow’s forces. Potential recruits visited Ukrainian embassies across the West and signed up to fight – often with the blessing of their own governments – and made their way to the battlefield.
However, recruitment was narrowed in March to those with military experience, and paused entirely at the beginning of April. A spokesman for Ukraine’s so-called “International Legion” told Canadian media that sending untrained volunteers to the front was becoming more of a hindrance than a help, and supplies of firearms and ammunition were running low.
Some of those who made the journey shared horror stories online of being sent to the front lines with inadequate weapons and ammo, while recruitment suffered after a Russian missile strike leveled a training center for these foreigners near the Western Ukrainian city of Lvov. “Up to 180 foreign mercenaries and a large quantity of foreign weapons were destroyed,” Konashenkov said at the time."
British citizen tells what the Azov of Ukraine have been doing lately:
Video here: https://t.me/intelslava/25862
According to information received from the residents of Kramatorsk, it became known about a series of murders of civilians by Ukrainian nationalists in order to take possession of their vehicles.
At the exit from the city along the H-20 highway in the direction of Slavyansk, the militants stopped and confiscated vehicles, when they tried to resist, the owner of the car and his passengers were shot on the side of the road.
We reliably know about 23 civilians killed by Ukrainian nationalists, the real number of victims could be much higher.
🇺🇸⚡The US may deplete its own stockpiles of weapons due to military assistance to Ukraine - Bloomberg
The United States, providing military assistance to Ukraine, risks losing a significant part of its own stockpiles of weapons, while not being able to quickly increase production, said Bloomberg analyst Hal Brands.
Perhaps China is waiting for this to happen before going after Taiwan...

Russia brings out evidence of vile experiments being done in Ukraine:
❗️During the special operation in Ukraine, it was established that US scientists from a laboratory in Merefa (Kharkov Region) were testing potentially dangerous biological drugs on patients of the regional clinical psychiatric hospital No 3 in Kharkov between 2019 and 2021.
▫️Persons with mental disorders were selected for the experiments on the basis of their age, nationality and immune status. Special forms were used to record the results of 24-hour patient monitoring. The information was not entered into the hospital database and the staff of the medical institution signed a non-disclosure agreement.
▫️In January 2022, the laboratory in Merefa was shut down and all equipment and medication were moved to western Ukraine.

Still Trust the CIA?
That might explain a lot...
America’s $100 billion biological weapons program is a “criminal enterprise” employing tens of thousands of “death scientists” in Ukraine and other countries, according to the US lawyer who drafted the 1989 US Biowarfare Act.
China calls them out too:
Did you know the US was stonewalling verification of biological weapons with multilateral verification? i didn't. Where is our domestic media on this?
Fascinating analysis of the situation in Ukraine:
Russia has the most advanced and dense, data-linked air defense on earth.
In a war against Russia, U.S. army cannot expect much air assistance for at least the first several weeks. Even stealth aircraft will not be of much use because of the distance they must fly in order to reach targets in Ukraine and/or Russia.
Russian EW (electronic warfare) is much more advanced and more ‘combat-ized’ than in the U.S. RF utilizes it in combat squads whereas U.S. barely has any and only at the divisional level
Russian EW shuts down all communications in huge areas along the front, no cellphones, military radios etc. They break GPS links with drones, making them useless and can even fry the fuses on artillery shells midflight.
U.S. army produces 10x the frequency emissions of a Ukrainian brigade, which would make it extremely visible to all sorts of Russian EW, drones, advanced weapons.
Russia has far more artillery than U.S. and far greater variety of munition types.
Here is the map of the proposed 2014 Russian invasion plan. Look familiar?
Important to note that Russia made some significant alterations to this plan. Their axis of attack from the north through Chernobyl was not on the 2014 plan.
"Karber’s two most salient conclusions from his briefing should scare the hell out of U.S. military commanders.
First, from the last year of WW II until now the US has always fought with air superiority and never faced a comparable air force. Russia changes that calculus. Not only does it have a robust combat air capability that rivals anything the United States or NATO can put in the air, the Russians have the largest interconnected air defense system in the world. Five systems that are all data linked according to Karber. And this was the status quo from four years ago. Russian has made additional significant technological gains on this front.
One of the most important developments is Russia’s dramatic expanded use of drones/UAVs. Russian tanks have capability to operate a UAV from the tank to obtain intelligence and launch an aerial attack.
The second, and far more concerning Russian advantage is its formidable Electronic Warfare capability–i.e., they can listen, jam communications and hit targets emitting an electronic signature. The US Army, by contrast, does not have a competent, organized EW capability. Compounding the threat is the U.S. Army’s over reliance on computer systems to gather and disseminate intelligence and other essential military communications. This means that U.S. command posts and units will be easier to target and destroy.
Another ominous observation from Karber concerns use of thermobaric weapons. Karber describes them as “Napalm on steroids.” The Ukrainian soldiers dug in at fortified positions are discovering this horror first hand. These bombs give Russia the ability to devastate company and brigade sized units. It eliminates Russia’s need to send troops against a fortification and risk incurring thousands of casualties."
Thinking through Indisputable Facts:
"When context for Russian actions in Ukraine is provided, a common response (knee jerk more fairly) is ‘Russian propaganda’. So, I suggest that we examine some objective facts that cannot be honestly disputed. These facts beg questions.
The US DoS spent $5B (not counting undisclosed amounts showered on NGOs) and fomented a coup in Ukraine, overthrowing democratically-elected, Russian-leaning Viktor Yanukovych in 2014.
If Ukraine is just a fledgling democracy minding its own business and no threat to Russia, why did the US use its power and resources to change its government? If you dismiss Russia’s claim that it’s a threat, then you must explain why it’s benign to Russia that the US engaged in violent coup activity there.
The Pentagon commissioned Rand Corp, the premier think tank that drives direction on US foreign policy, to write the report titled Overextending and Unbalancing Russia. The report describes using Ukraine as a weapon to destabilize Russia. Exactly the existential threat that Russia claims exists.
Do you disagree with Rand that Ukraine could be a valid threat to Russian security? Explain why Rand is incorrect.
When Russia invaded Ukraine this year, the USA gathered every country it has influence over and threatened those it does not, demanding they sanction Russia in what is bar none the largest and most aggressive sanctioning program the world has ever seen. The media went into overdrive and created the greatest PR campaign in favor of a country that is not even a NATO member the world has ever seen. NATO and western allies have armed Ukraine with billions in weapons. The president of Ukraine has made rounds and been granted red carpet status in every western nation in an effort to garner more guns.
Why is Ukraine different from Yemen? Saudi Arabia is at this very moment attacking Yemen. Nearly 700k have died because of them. The US and NATO actively supply weapons to the Saudis. So, clearly, they are not aiding Ukraine because of democracy or because they are an underdog that was invaded by a big bully. How exactly is Russia wrong then when it claims the west is using Ukraine to harm Russia by arming it and radicalizing it? Yemen proves the guns are not about defense of a country and principles. So then, what are the guns for?"
Dagny Answer: The Bidens, Kerrys and Clintons have a financial and operational base in Ukraine. Globalist politically financed organized crime is run through there.
Is a dam a legitimate military target?
On the morning of April 15, Russian Armed Forces prevented an attempt by the Kiev nationalist regime to hit Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station with a missile strike.
▫️This critical facility regulates the flow of the Dnepr River, supplies electricity to Kherson region, and supplies water to agricultural areas in southern Ukraine and northern Crimea.
▫️At about 7am Moscow time, a battalion of Ukraine's 19th Separate Missile Brigade struck the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station with two Tochka-U tactical missiles.
▫️The destruction of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station dam by the strike was intended to result in the uncontrolled release of Dnepr water and cause flooding of many Kherson region settlements along with people in order to constrain the actions of the Russian Armed Forces.
💥Both missiles were shot down in mid-air by Russian air defense.
▫️Shrapnel from one of them fell on Novaya Kakhovka, Kherson region. Kindergarten and residential buildings were damaged.
🏥A woman and a child were wounded and given first aid by Russian servicemen on the spot. They are currently being taken to a medical facility.

Disney knowingly destroyed its reputation. Why would they sacrifice all that for perversity?
The Trafalgar Group survey, conducted April 4-8, found that nearly 70 percent of likely voters say they are less likely to do business with Disney in the wake of reports about the company promoting “queerness” in its content for children.
The survey said, “News reports reveal Disney is focusing on creating content to expose young children to sexual ideas. Does this make you more or less likely to do business with Disney?” A whopping 57.2 percent said they were “much less likely” and 11 percent said “less likely” to do so, for a total of 68.2 percent.
Meanwhile, only 9.4 percent said Disney’s support of radical leftism makes them interested in giving the entertainment giant more support, while 22.5 percent said they had no opinion on the issue.
According to the poll, people across the political spectrum have found themselves losing faith in Disney. A huge majority of Republicans and independents said they were less likely to patronize Disney now, and almost half of Democrats also agreed.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Trafalgar found that 85.3 percent of Republicans said Disney’s promotion of a radical LGBTQ agenda makes them less likely to do business with the company. Meanwhile, only 4.4 percent of Republicans responding said it would make them more likely to do so.
