Russia-Ukraine War: Russia Invades Ukraine

There are multiple issues that led to the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine war in February 2022. First there is the issue of ethnic cleansing of native Russians in the Donbas region and unrelenting shelling of civilian communities by the Maidan regime since 2014; then the issue of collective security between the Donbas Republics and the Russian Federation; then the issue of NATO infiltration into Ukraine and supplying weapons and training for neo-Nazi groups; then the issue of U.S. biological laboritories doing research with dangerous pathogens on the territory of Ukraine near the Russian border; then the issue of the Kyiv regime’s discrimination against Russian speaking people and making them second-class citizens in the country of their birth; then the issue of oil and natural gas deposits beneath the predominantly Russian areas of Donbas and Crimea, which Western monopolists and oligarchs lust after; then the issue of competition between the European Union and the Eurasian Economic Union over the boundaries of their respective zones of influence, playing a central role in the illegal Maidan coup; then the issue of the petrodollar system, which Russia has the potential to compete with and disrupt; then the issue of Central Asia, the heart of the “Eurasian Balkans” deemed to be the key to ensuring American global hegemony by Zbigniew Brzezinski and Henry Kissinger and their contemporary cohorts; then there is religious sectarian rivalry between orthodox churches which claim to be the legitimate Orthodox Church of the Ukrainian people, which has led to violations of religious liberty by the Kyiv regime per the UN Human Rights Commission;[1] then the Culture War as Leftists in the West attempt to extend their agenda into Ukraine with gay pride marches to challenge the conservative values of both Ukrainians and Russians.[2]

In the run up to the war, both the United States and NATO rejected, without consideration, two formal diplomatic proposals by the Russian Federation for peace treaties between the Russian Federation and the United States and NATO to avoid war. The treaty proposals would require NATO to pledge not granting Ukraine and the Republic of Georgia NATO membership; U.S. missiles in Poland and Romania to be removed; and NATO deployments to Eastern Europe reversed. The U.S. and NATO rejected the proposals out of hand in December 2021, and instead acted aggressively by sending more NATO forces to Eastern Europe and continued to heavily arm Ukraine.[3]

When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, 25 million ethnic Russians woke up the next day finding themselves citizens of other countries outside Russia proper. Working and retired ethnic Russians in their new countries of residence lost the social security insurance and benefits that the former Soviet regime had promised them. None of these citizens and workers had any democratic voice in their fate. Putin called it a “genuine tragedy”. As of 2014 when the U.S.-backed Maidan coup occurred in Ukraine, 10 million Russians lived as a minority in multicultural Ukraine. Immediately after the new unelected regime was installed by the West, discriminatory laws and ethnic violence targeted the Russian minority. The Donbas war claimed nearly 14,000 lives, mostly civilians, as the West and the rest of the “civilized” world ignored the crisis.

NATO-backed neo-Nazis attacked the Donbas on February 14, 2022.[4][5][6] Military forces of the Russian Federation (RF) entered Ukraine on February 24, 2022 to put an end to the ethnic violence and de-nazify the areas where the children and grandchildren of World War II Nazi collaborators had been carrying an ethnic hatred of Russians since the Holodomor of the 1930s and earlier. A wave of patriotism swept over Russian society, viewing the operation as a second Great Patriotic War.[7] Soldiers felt they were sent to finish the job of de-nazifying Ukraine that their grandfathers left unfinished after World War II. The use civilian human shields by the U.S-trained Armed Forces of Ukraine led to civilian casualties in several instances. Ukrainian security forces committed reprisal actions and atrocities against ethnic Russians and Russian speakers in areas which Russian forces vacated. Numerous attacks by Ukrainian forces on its own citizens, which had been ongoing in the Donbas region for the eight previous years, spread outside the Donbas to create false flag images of attacks by Russians. By early April 2022, the Armed Forces of Ukraine had been so degraded and decimated, or were out of fuel and unable to retreat, the Maidan regime relied even more heavily on soft power, psychological operations and propaganda war to garner sympathy from the West for continued support.

Special Military Operation

On February 23, 2022 Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered Russian troops into Greater Ukraine in a demilitarization and denazification operation.[9] As it is crucial in purging deep state neo-Nazis, the Russian military is stopping genocidal extermination in Donbas, arresting human sex traffickers, and destroying extremely dangerous biowarfare labs.

In a televised speech shortly before 04:00 Moscow time on 24 February 2022, Putin announced that he had ordered Russian forces to enter Donbas. He insisted it was not Russia’s intention to annex the Donbas Repubics or Ukraine, but stated that Russia would protect the right of the Donbas Republics to self-determination, and that it would do so by forcing the “demilitarisation” of the remainder of the Ukraine. Minutes later, explosions were reported at various points throughout the country, including the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv as well as at Kharkiv, Odessa, and several other cities. Ukrainian officials attributed these to cruise and ballistic missiles launched by Russian units at their military installations.

Russian ground troops were reported entering Ukraine at around 06:48 local time near the city of Senkivka on the northern border, with others entering from Crimea in the south shortly thereafter.[11] Kyiv regime sources reported throughout the day that Russian units had launched attacks on numerous targets, including a landing of airborne soldiers at the Antonov International Airport outside Kyiv, but claimed that their own forces inflicted heavy casualties on the Russians. A press conference by Ukrainian President Zelensky at 16:00 Kyiv time claimed that heavy fighting was occurring in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, site of the 1986 nuclear accident, which lies along the direct route of advance towards Kyiv from the north.[12] Zelensky had just days earlier threatened Russia with a dirty nuclear bomb made from nuclear waste.[13]

During ceasefire[14] negotiations on a Russian proposal to create humanitarian corridors for civilians to escape encirclement in Ukranian Neo-Nazi strongholds, Ukrainian Security forces murdered a top Ukrainian negotiator trying to avert a humanitarian crisis.[15]

Four weeks into the incursion, Kherson and most of the Zaporozhye region were under the Russian control. The Ukrainian Air Force and air defense system were almost completely destroyed, the Ukrainian Navy did not exist anymore.[16] According to the Russian Ministry of Defense (MOD), the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) amounted to about 30 thousand servicemen, including more than 14 thousand KIA.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, to date, the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have amounted to about 30 thousand servicemen, including more than 14 thousand KIA.

On March 25, 2022 the Russian Ministry of Defense officially confirmed that storming of Ukrainian cities was not a priority but rather the destruction of Ukrainian armed forces.[17] Russian troops only entered cities on the independent territories of the DPR and LPR.[18] High-precision weapons were used to suppress the entire military infrastructure of the enemy, the main goal being to exhaust the AFU units and force them to surrender. NATO warlords kept some units fighting, exposing civilians to risk as AFU units used civilians as human shields.

According to reports from The Times of London on March 27, 2022, Zelensky sent a handwritten letter to Putin via Roman Abramovich giving full details about Ukraine’s conditions for ending the war. Putin is reported to have responded saying, “Tell him I will destroy him.”[19] Abramovich, owner of the Chelsea football club in London and a target of Uk sanctions, suffered a suspected poisoning in Kyiv while preparing for peace talks with Putin.[20]

On March 29, 2022 the Russian Defense Ministry announced it would be reducing offensive operations in the Kyiv and Chernihiv regions. The Armed Forces of Ukraine intensified attacks on civilian infrastructure in the territory of the DPR and LPR.

April 11, 2022 was reported to be the worst day of the war for the Zelensky regime thus far, with over 1,100 AFU either killed, wounded, or captured in a single day. When AFU soldiers began to surrender in large groups, reports emerged that the commanders of the nationalist Azov formation, deployed their fighters in other AFU units as political commissars in order to prevent AFU fighters from surrendering.[21] AFU snipers were instructed to shoot AFU soldiers in the back if they they were seen running the wrong direction. Bodies of AFU soldiers carrying surrender instructions were found, executed by their own command with a shot in the back.[22] AFU POWs attest to the presence of commissars and a rite of passage for newcomers to a unit which was vidseotaped – newcomers had to kill either a Russian POW or civilian.[23]

On April 12, 2022 it was reported that Ukraine remains in the state of permanent chaos and security collapse. Regular reports about incidents involving organized crime, looting and shooting appear from almost all areas controlled by Kyiv’s forces. Units of the so-called ‘territorial defense’ formed by the Kyiv government are among the main sources of civilian casualties and friendly fire incidents in the Kyiv-controlled part of Ukraine.[24]

Donbas genocide

During the U.S.-backed Maidan coup many inhabitants of the Donbas wanted to join Russia. In April 2014 the government building of Donetsk was occupied by separatist resistance fighters.[25] On April 7, 2014 the resistance declared the independent “Republic of Donetsk”.[26] It was only recognized by South Ossetia.[27] Since 2014 the Ukrainian government tried to regain the city. The Ukrainian government’s neo-Nazi Azov Battalion delivered indiscriminate artillery shelling on civilian and residential areas from the city of Mariupol, 30 kilometers from the border, on the Donbas Republics for the 8 previous years The Azov Battalion has received weapons, training, and satellite intelligence information on Russian movements from NATO.[28][29]

Hromadske TV media is one of the most-watched networks in Ukraine. Hromadske is funded by the Dutch and US Embassies in Kyiv, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, the European Endowment for Democracy, and Free Press Unlimited. Silicon Valley oligarch Pierre Omidary was also involved in creating the outlet.[30] Hromadske hosted Ukrainian Nazi journalist Bogdan Boutkevitch[31] during the Maidan coup demanding genocide of ethnic Russians saying Donbas,

“is severely overpopulated with people nobody has any use for. Trust me I know what I am saying. If we take, for example, just Donetsk oblast, there are approximately 4 million inhabitants, at least 1.5 million of them are superfluous. We don’t need to “understand” Donbass, we need to understand Ukrainian national interests. Donbass must be exploited as a resource, which it is. I don’t claim to have a quick solution recipe, but the most important thing that must be done – no matter how cruel it may sound, there is a certain category of people that MUST BE EXTERMINATED.”[32]

In early December 2021 it was reported that the Armed Forces of Ukraine deployed 125,000 troops, half of its forces, against the predominantly Russian speaking Donbas region of Eastern Ukraine.[33] More than 600,000 Russian citizens reside in Donbas.[34] Reuters reported on December 9, 2021 that “President Biden said very clearly that the decision on Ukraine’s accession to NATO is the decision of the Ukrainian people only.”[35]

In Donetsk region, between the evenings of 18 and 20 February 2022, the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine recorded 2,158 ceasefire violations, including 1,100 explosions. In the previous reporting period, it recorded 591 ceasefire violations in the region. In Luhansk region, between the evenings of 18 and 20 February, the Mission recorded 1,073 ceasefire violations, including 926 explosions. In the previous reporting period, it recorded 975 ceasefire violations in the region.[36]

As tensions escalated in mid-February 2022, some 700,000 women, children, and elderly were being evacuated to Rostov in neighboring Russia.[37][38] Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the Russian government to house and feed people fleeing the Ukrainian military advance once they arrived in southern Russia. Each refugee arriving from Donbass is to be given a payment of 10,000 roubles ($129). RT reported Denis Pushilin, the head of the Donetsk Peoples Republic warned, “Kiev can start a full-scale assault on Donbass at any moment, the situation is critical”[39] A full-scale mobilization was ordered, and men 18 to 55 were conscripted to remain and defend against the Ukrainian military attack.[40][41]
