posted on Mar, 24 2022 @ 03:59 PM
* - .@MorawieckiM: What is happening in Ukraine is not an ordinary war, aggression of one army against another, it is slaughter against civilians, women, children and the elderly. Humanitarian convoys are under attack, which is barbaric

* - .@MorawieckiM: We will appeal to cut off access to European ports, cut off trade with Russia by road or rail, and treat the sanctions as seriously as possible, this is the only way for Russia to withdraw from its aggressive policy

* - Adviser to the Ukrainian President: The progress of the Russian forces has practically stopped in several regions due to their lack of the necessary resources

* - Heavy smoke over Bucha-Irpin'-Hostomiel amid violent battles

* - 1 month since Russia started devastating war, UNGA (with resounding majority-140) just adopted a resolution Humanitarian Consequences of Aggression against Ukraine demands to stop the war

* - Stoltenberg: Allies agreed to provide cybersecurity assistance and equipment to help Ukraine protect against biological, chemical, radiological and nuclear threats - including detection, protection and medical supplies, and training for community contamination and crisis management

As a reminder -

Just so people know and understand. Information from war zones can become confusing as there will no doubt be info released from the players (on both sides) involved that might not necessarily be true.

As such take everything as a possibility and NOT as absolute truth.

The very first casualty in a war is the truth and all warfare is based on deception

As predicted, Russian media is gaslightning the atrocities Russia is committing in Ukraine. Actually, they are using the bombings to mud-sling Ukrainians. The propagandist blame the so-called „nationalists”, not the Russian military, which started the war.

Video on Twitter. It is in the Russian lang. Don't know how's your Russian. I am revising mine at the moment.

Seriously, did they not take into consideration that they can't physically control Ukraine response to their actions. How delusional they can be.

How delusional are they? They thought Ukraine would fall quickly, giving a time frame of 3-5 days. This would explain why Russian forces were running out of supplies/ammo/equipment.

Russia made the same mistake in Ukraine that the Nazis made when they invaded the USSR - "give it a swift kick and the whole rotten mess will collapse". Because of that shortsightedness / arrogance Nazi forces did not have proper clothing when winter set in or proper supplies for the army groups involved.

It is because they do not learn from history, they are too arrogant for it. Instead, they write their own take on the 'events':

NBC News, 2015 Nov

The government of Russian President Vladimir Putin has stoked fears that it is resorting to Soviet techniques to stifle criticism by rewriting the country’s history text books.

Putin asked historians in February to develop a plan for a new history curriculum that would produce a single history free "from internal contradictions and ambiguities" that would cover the many difficult events in Russian and Soviet history.

Next curriculum of Russian schools be like:

Some good news for the end of the day:

In Mykolayiv region, Ukrainian army has pushed Russians back to Kherson region. Fights there are intense, but successful for the Ukrainian Armed Forces — Vitaliy Kim, the head of Mykolayiv Regional State Administration


Aleksey Arestovich reports that #Russian troops tried to take #Chornobaevka for the tenth time, but the assault again ended in failure.


The Ukrainian army reportedly recaptured Lukyanovka, east of Kyiv, destroying three tanks and 9 Infantry Fighting vehicles in the process.
This is an important counter-offensive, as Lukyanovka is on the Russian supply line to Velyka Dymerka, near Brovary.

This would suggest a whole leg of the Russian offensive/units that were fighting in Velyka Dymerka and near Brovary either do not exist anymore, or are likely surrounded.


Video link. Guys that took out Russian tanks might be Americans or Canadians from foreign voluntiers.

Irpin has been almost completely liberated, the Ukrainian military continues fighting for Bucha and Hostomel.


And the cherry on the top:

Captain Farid Chitav and 11 his subordinates from Russian National Guard (Росгвардия) refused to go to Ukraine. Their regiment from Krasnodar was ordered to Ukraine and they objected. They said that they don't have a foreign passport and thus can't cross Russian border legally.

They said that crossing Russian border without a foreign passport (you need for travelling abroad) is illegal and constitutes a felony 322 УК РФ. Thus they can't go. What happened to them? They were all fired. Now they are suing their commandment for firing them illegally

I love this quote from Vasquez:

“I kind of feel like I’m on an awesome very dangerous vacation,” he said. And in another tweet: “When I need to amp myself up for battle, I just think about the most punchable face on the planet… Tucker Carlson.”

Mariupol is expected to be under Russian control within the next day if it isn't already.

Twitter and youtube are taking down accounts and channels showing Ukraine defeats and videos of Ukraine's human rights abuses. Telegram is the only source I am seeing that you can get information of such.

Link to one suck channel. Some stuff is grizzly. Such as a recent post showing that some degenerates have taken to using Russian corpses as props standing them in poses and reports of using them as furniture.
Also keep an eye out for reports/videos of Russian soldiers abusing civilians. They will likely be 3 second clips.

Russia accused Poland on Thursday of trying to destroy bilateral relations by expelling 45 of its diplomats, and said it would respond harshly.

The Russian ambassador said Poland, which said on Wednesday it was expelling the diplomats on suspicion of working for Russian intelligence, had also blocked the embassy's bank accounts.

The Russian foreign ministry said the expulsions were "a conscious step towards the final destruction of bilateral relations, the dismantling of which our Polish 'partners' have been systematically carrying out for a long time".

Just repercussions, Russia. Nothing personal.
