On Saturday, Russia’s Defense Ministry reported the following:
High-precision strikes by Russian aerospace forces destroyed Ukraine’s Nazified 115th mechanized brigade in the Seversk, Donetsk area.
Its personnel losses exceeded 600 Nazi thugs over a two-day period.
Russian precision-weapons also “eliminated four command posts of Ukraine’s 80th Airborne Assault Brigade” in Donetsk.
And the following were also eliminated over the weekend:
Ukraine’s 3rd tank brigade in the Kharkov Region.
An ammunition depot in Donetsk.
Manpower and materiel of Ukrainian armed forces in 25 areas.
Since Friday, Russian aircraft downed two Ukrainian MiG-29 warplanes in Donetsk airspace.
“Operational-tactical and army aviation aircraft, missile and artillery troops struck 18 command posts, and also manpower and military hardware in 211 areas.”
Two Ukrainian Su-25 warplanes, two helicopters and 9 UAVS were destroyed in the Kharkov and Kherson regions.
Multiple Ukrainian rockets and missiles were intercepted and eliminated in Donetsk, Kharkov and Kherson.
On Friday, Russian special forces foiled multiple Ukrainian terrorist attacks.
Saboteurs involved in attempted assassinations of local officials were eliminated or captured and detained.
Small arms, grenade launchers and grenades, mines, communications and explosive devices were seized.
On Friday, Russian forces also struck Ukraine’s Yuzhmash plant — a facility involved in producing missiles and various technologies for war-making.
According to Russia’s Defense Ministry, high-precision missile strikes eliminated plant “workshops for producing components and repairing Tochka-U ballistic missiles, as well as MRLS projectiles.”
US-supplied MLRS and HIMARS have been used by Ukrainian Nazis to kill Donbass civilians, as well as against nonmilitary infrastructure.
Separately last week, Donetsk’s deputy militia commander, Eduard Basurin, said the following:
“DPR militiamen jointly with Russian armed forces destroyed ammunition dumps in the Konstantinovka and Kramatorsk areas with precision strikes.”
“Enemy losses amounted up to 1,000 personnel and more than 100 weapons and hardware pieces.”
“A MLRS platoon was destroyed in counterbattery fight in the Nikolayevka area.”
To date since Russia’s SMO began, “251 DPR settlements have been liberated from Ukrainian invaders.”
On Saturday, the DPR mission to the Joint Ceasefire Control and Coordination Center reported the following:
Since Russia’s SMO began, Ukrainian Nazis and conscripts killed 256 Donetsk civilians, including 16 children.
US/Western MSM — including the self-styled newspaper of record NYT — don’t consider the above cold-blooded murder “news that’s fit to print.”
Nor did they report anything about nearly 6,000 Ukrainian terror-shelling incidents with around 49.9 thousand munitions of various caliber.
They include Tochka-U missiles, 14 Smerch, 151 Uragan and 8,759 Grad rockets.
Since February, Ukrainian terror-shelling damaged or destroyed “5,545 (Donbass) houses, over 1,230 civilian infrastructure facilities, 434 facilities providing electricity, water and gas supplies, and over 670 transportation vehicles.”
Separately, analyst Larry Johnson mocked US/Western and Kiev fake news claims about being able to “vanquish the Russians,” stressing what I and others explained a number of times throughout Russia’s liberating SMO.
“Ukraine has not ousted Russian troops from a single piece of territory and held that territory since the start of the (SMO).”
“Ukraine did not force the retreat of Russian troops that surrounded Kiev in March.”
Russia’s maneuver “was a classic feint.”
It “was used successfully to pin (down) Ukraine forces around Kiev so that Russia could concentrate on Mariupol and Donbass.”
Yet Kiev, its US/Western paymasters and MSM press agents pretend otherwise with daily fake news reports.
They’re whistling past the graveyard while Russian forces continue to smash the made-in-the-USA, Nazi-infested, monster with overwhelming force.
