According to Russia’s Defense Ministry on Saturday, its air defense forces downed Western military transport plane.
Reportedly it was targeted for carrying arms and munitions to Ukrainian forces with continuing endless US/NATO proxy war on Russia in mind.
The report shows that Western shipments of weapons et al to Ukraine are likely to be targeted for elimination.
In response to puppet Zelensky’s fake claim of from 2,500 – 3,000 deaths of Ukrainian military personnel since Russia’s campaign began, its Defense Ministry set the record straight, saying:
“(T)rue losses in the Ukrainian army, National Guard and among foreign mercenaries, which Zelensky is frightened to communicate to the people of Ukraine (total) 23,367.”
Thousands more Ukrainian forces were taken prisoner after laying down their arms and surrendering.
Besides the above totals, it’s believed that additional thousands deserted their ranks, returned home, crossed into Russia or went elsewhere.
Through Saturday, Russia’s Defense Ministry reported the following toll to date on Ukraine’s battered and degraded military:
The toll includes “134 aircraft, 460 unmanned aerial vehicles, 246 surface-to-air missile systems, 2,269 tanks and other combat armored vehicles, 252 multiple launch rocket systems, 987 field artillery guns and mortars and 2,158 special military motor vehicles.”
The Kiev regime “employed a total of 6,824 foreign mercenaries from 63 countries since the start of the special military operation.”
Their numbers include 1,717 from Poland, 1,500 from the US, Canada and Romania, around 300 from Britain and Georgia, as well as nearly 200 from Turkish-controlled Syrian territory.
Up to around 2,500 Nazified fighters and foreign mercenaries remain holed up in Mariupol’s Azovstal steel plant.
Virtually out of food and water, their choice is surrender or die.
In the battle to liberate Mariupol, nearly 1,500 largely Nazified forces surrendered, their numbers increasing daily.
According to Donetsk leader Denis Pushilin, remaining Nazified forces in Mariupol must either surrender or be eliminated.
On Friday, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Donetsk initiated a criminal case against OSCE Special Monitoring Mission personnel for colluding with Kiev against the People’s Republic, saying:
Its culpable personnel are charged with “us(ing) video equipment to record the location of units of the republic’s People’s Militia, state bodies and institutions.”
“The information was collected in electronic format, (then) transferred to representatives of foreign intelligence agencies, including the Ukrainian Defense Ministry’s Main Intelligence Directorate and the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU).”
According to Russia’s OSCE envoy Alexander Lukashevich:
Members of its monitoring mission in Ukraine operated unlawfully by supporting its interests in defiance of its mandate.
Separately according to Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova:
Russian forces found documents to show involvement by Germany in “military biological activities” — in cahoots with the Pentagon in Ukraine, adding:
A “crude attempt by the (Biden regime) to divert public attention from this dangerously explosive issue of US-controlled biological laboratories in Ukraine and to drown it in this ‘apocalyptic sensation’ was…strongly supported by German political leadership.”
“A number of leading German politicians and top officials, including Chancellor Olaf Scholz, released statements that mimic the US narrative in the form of righteous threats and warnings directed at Russia.”
“Germany, alongside the US, has been conducting vigorous military biological activities in Ukraine for many years” — with intend to develop bioweapons for war-making.
“German specialists from the Institute of Microbiology of the German Armed Forces, Friedrich Loeffler Institute, Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine and Robert Koch Institute” have been involved in this diabolical research and development.
Separately, Russia’s Valdai Club program director, Andrey Sushentsov, falsely believes that there’s room for compromise between Russia and the West.
Indisputable evidence long ago proved otherwise.
Time and again, I stressed that hegemon USA-dominated NATO doesn’t compromise.
It demands — why diplomacy with its ruling regimes and Western vassal states is a colossal waste of time when undertaken.
No evidence suggests a change in the above reality ahead — just the opposite.
