Three hours of round three talks on Monday between Russian officials and powerless Ukrainians — controlled by hegemon USA — were as futile and rounds one and two.
Future rounds are highly unlikely to show progress toward conflict resolution as long as dominant Biden regime hardliners want it continued to try foiling Russia’s demilitarization and deNazification campaign.
According to Russia’s chief negotiator, Vladimir Medinsky:
Firm promises were sought from Kiev delegates on opening humanitarian corridors to evacuate civilians wishing to leave Kiev, Kharkov, Mariupol, Sumy and Chunigov.
Russian delegates presented “concrete treaties, drafts and proposals (for sought agreement in) protocol (form) to study at home.”
When talks ended, Medinsky stated what’s been clear since before they began, saying:
“Our expectations from the negotiations did not materialize.”
Hoping for “more substantial steps forward ahead” is wishful thinking with no chance of fulfillment as long as hegemon USA has other ideas.
As for promises by Ukrainian delegates to permit safe passage of civilians through humanitarian corridors from the above cities, it’s only possible with approval from Washington — clearly not forthcoming so far.
Neither Kiev delegates or the Zelensky regime has decision-making power on what’s going on.
Hegemon USA controls things in Kiev, especially on what relates to Russia.
Dominant Biden regime hardliners, the Pentagon and CIA clearly want Ukraine’s vassal state status preserved.
They want the country militarized, Nazified and controlled for use as a platform for permanent war along Russia’s border with destabilization aims in mind.
They want Russia isolated and surrounded by hostile US/NATO forces.
They want maximum harm inflicted on Russia politically and economically.
Ukraine’s military is significantly degraded.
Most of what remains is embedded in residential areas of Mariupol, Odessa and other cities behind civilians used as human shields.
Russia wants them protected, not harmed.
So liberating these cities has been slow-going to minimize civilian casualties.
On Monday, head of Russia’s Inter-Agency Humanitarian Response Coordination Headquarters, Mikhail Mizintsev, said the Kiev regime failed to inform residents of cities to be evacuated about humanitarian corridors.
Beholden to its higher power in Washington, puppet Zelensky and other regime official bow to its will.
Separately on Monday, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman General Igor Konashenkov said the following:
“(S)trikes on facilities of Ukraine’s military infrastructure continue.”
“Bombers and ground attack aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces destroyed 26 military facilities.”
They included two control points, a radar station, five ammunition depots and 11 areas where arms and military hardware were located.
“Units of the Russian Armed Forces have taken control of the settlements of Novoukrainskoye, Staromayorskoye, Staromlynovka, Mayorovo and Removka.”
“All civilians of the liberated settlements receive humanitarian assistance.”
Donetsk and Lugansk freedom fighters established control over 12 settlements.
Konashenkov also explained that Nazified forces in besieged cities are using live fire on civilians outside their homes, adding:
According to residents who escaped from virtual captivity, conditions in Mariupol are very difficult.
“People are hiding in basements.”
“Since there is no electricity and gas in their homes, they have to cook their meals on fire in the street.”
“Militants disperse them.”
“Nationalists open fire on all civilians trying to leave their houses.”
Through Monday, Russian forces destroyed 2,396 Ukrainian military infrastructure facilities.
They include 82 command and communications centers, 119 S-300, Buk-M1 and Osa air defense systems, 76 radar stations, 827 tanks and armored vehicles, 84 multiple rocket launchers, 304 field artillery guns and mortars, 603 special military vehicles and also 78 drones.
What little remains of Ukraine’s so-called air force is located cross-border.
On Monday, Russian forces downed three Ukrainian Su-27 planes, an Su-25 aircraft, two Mi-24 helicopters, and 8 drones.
On the same day, the Kremlin designated the following countries as unfriendly:
Vassal states Britain and EU countries
Notably during WW I and II, the Swiss were neutral and stayed out of both wars.
To its shame, it backs Nazified Ukraine and US-dominated NATO against Russia — at the expense of its neutrality and standing on the world stage.
Other nations Russia declared unfriendly include:
Ukraine, of course, Montenegro, Albania, Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, North Macedonia, and also Japan, South Korea, Australia, Micronesia, New Zealand, Singapore, and the Taiwanese ruling regime in cahoots with the US drive for global hegemony.
The above countries and Taiwan crossed the line from unfriendly toward Moscow to hostile.
Once again on Tuesday, Russia’s Defense Ministry announced a ceasefire to open humanitarian corridors from Kiev, Kharkov, Mariupol, Sumy and Chernigov — effective 10:00 AM local time.
Its good faith effort to help civilians in harm’s way reach safe haven security will fail again as long as hegemon USA has other ideas.
