Since Russia’s SMO began three months ago, its forces made steady progress.
In stark contrast, Ukraine’s greatly degraded military failed to mount a counteroffensive to slow or halt Russia’s advances.
According to Lugansk’s envoy to Russia, Rodion Miroshnik:
“There are a lot of POWs.”
“Of course, there are more of them on the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic but we also have a lot, and now the total number is around 8,000.”
“This is a lot, and literally hundreds are being added daily.”
“Currently, there is an active advancement towards Slavyansk and Kramatorsk.”
“There are a lot of small fortified areas, and, in my opinion, the number will grow, and both the number of POWs and of those killed, since now instead of the trained units of Ukraine’s armed forces or the (Nazified) battalions, the territorial defense battalions are being sent to the frontline.”
“Those are the people who were handed weapons and essentially were promised that they will defend their vegetable lots, stand at roadblocks somewhere about two thousand kilometers away from the line of engagement.”
“Yet they were loaded on trains and brought to Donbass.”
“Now they surrender or die on a rather large scale because they are not ready to wage this war.”
Separately, puppet Zelensky has no intention of engaging in good faith peace talks with Russia — because his US master forbids it.
So he recited the following pre-scripted lines, saying:
Russia must pull back its forces “to where they were before Feb. 24 (sic).”
“I believe it would be a correct step for Russia to make (sic).”
Moscow needs to “shift from bloody war to diplomacy (sic).”
“Ukraine will fight until it reclaims all its territories (sic).”
“It’s about our independence and our sovereignty (sic).”
“Practically the full might of the Russian army, whatever they have left, is being thrown at the(ir) offensive (sic).”
“Liman, Popasna, Sievierodonetsk, Slaviansk — the occupiers want to destroy everything there (sic).”
What Zelensky called Ukrainian “democracy” is US-colonized, Nazi-infested fascist tyranny.
Phony claims by dominant Biden regime hardliners and their MSM press agents about alleged threats by Russia to use tactical nukes, chemical, biological and other banned weapons in Ukraine are debunked by indisputable evidence proving otherwise.
Ukrainian thugs are war criminals. So are complicit US/Western officials — not Russia, its leadership or forces in Ukraine.
In stark contrast to how US-dominated NATO and proxy Ukrainian troops operate — in flagrant breach of international law — Russia’s SMO complies with the letter and spirit of its principles.
Its actions are defensive, not offensive, to protect its security and liberate Donbass entirely from 8 years of Kiev aggression and illegal Nazified occupation
The Russian Federation and its leadership threatens no other nations.
Hegemon USA-dominated NATO threatens everyone everywhere.
Democracy throughout the US/West (and in Ukraine) is pure fantasy.
Russians enjoy the real thing.
In Davos, Ukraine’s so-called foreign minister, Kuleba, expressed concern about what he called the “extremely bad” situation in Donbass — as Russian forces liberate its territory entirely from the scourge of Nazified occupation.
On Wednesday at the Security Council, Russia’s UN envoy Vassily Nebenzia stressed the following:
In stark contrast to how Moscow provides large-scale humanitarian aid to liberated areas in Ukraine and Donbass, US forces operate in polar opposite fashion as a reviled occupier in nations like Syria.
The Syrian Arab Republic is unable to restore peace and stability throughout the country because of hegemon USA’s illegal presence as an occupier.
As a result, many thousands of Syrians endure “inhumane conditions, amidst total havoc and lawlessness,” Nebenzia explained, adding:
“The occupying power plunder(s) natural and agricultural resources that are owned by the Syrian people.”
It steals Syrian oil and grains.
The empire of lies and its vassal regimes bear full responsibility for “Syria’s protracted humanitarian calamity and economic crisis.”
They operated much the same way in other raped and destroyed nations — massacring their people, causing vast destruction, plundering their resources and immiserating survivors.
In Ukraine, US-dominated NATO supports Kiev’s war crimes against civilians.
Their ruling regimes supported and encouraged 8 year of aggression by Kiev against Donbass civilians.
Throughout Russia’s liberating SMO, Ukrainian troops continue to terrorize civilians in areas they control.
They’ve been complicit with hegemon USA’s false flags in Bucha and Kramatorsk.
Nazified Kiev forces murdered civilians and brutally tortured Russian POWs.
“All perpetrators guilty of intended attacks on civilians or deaths of civilians caused by indiscriminate or disproportionate use of force in violation of the IHL norms will face the law,” Nebenzia stressed.
Accountability is long overdue — including for the criminal class throughout the West and in Kiev.
