Ukraine’s Battered, Beaten and Broken Military

According to NYT fake news, Ukraine’s badly beaten military forced the “Russian army (to) retreat everywhere (sic).”

Its “success (sic) dr(ove) the Russians…into peace negotiations (sic).”

According to WaPo fake news, Russia (is) losing (in Ukraine) because of its dysfunctional military (sic).”

And this WSJ fake news:

“The secret of Ukraine’s military success (is) years of NATO training (sic).”

According to NBC (fake) News:

“The secret to the Ukrainian military’s success (is) that a technically inferior adversary can impose surprisingly sharp costs (sic).”

Other MSM featured similar fake news, defying reality on the ground.

Here’s what Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman General Igor Konashenkov reported on Sunday:

“Since the start of the special military operation, a total of 136 warplanes, 471 Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles, 249 air defense systems, 2,308 tanks and other armored vehicles, 254 multiple launch rocket systems, 998 field artillery guns and mortars, 2,171 special military vehicles have been destroyed” — as well as a missile production plant  and an ammunition storage area.

Overall, 814 military targets were either rendered inoperable or destroyed, most Ukrainian oil depots eliminated.

On Sunday, Russian “missile forces and artillery hit 113 military targets in Ukraine, including four army control centers, four artillery batteries, two fuels depots, and 103 strongholds and areas of the deployment of the enemy manpower.”

Separately according to head of Russia’s National Defense Management Center, General Mikhail Mizintsev:

Nazified Ukrainian “mobile groups equipped with mortars (intend) to shell Orthodox churches on (April 24, orthodox Christian) Easter Sunday in Zaporozhye, Nikolaev, Odessa, Sumy, and Kharkov. 

Falsely “accus(ing) Russian troops of mass murder of civilians on this holy day” is planned, adding:

“(S)everal Western countries (are aiding Kiev prepare to launch) sophisticated monstrous provocations with numerous victims.”

False flags like the above when occur are made-in-the-the USA.

Time and again, vassal state Britain is involved.

This time, if the above atrocity occurs, perhaps France and/or Germany as well.

Their ruling regimes long ago abandoned the rule of law in favor of hegemon USA’s “rules-based order” — in flagrant breach of international law.

US/NATO supplied terror weapons are also used by Ukrainian forces, including against Donbass civilians.

According to Russia’s Defense Ministry, internationally banned MON-50 and MON-90 mines were discovered in Mariupol — ones used by Nazified Ukrainian forces.

The puppet Zelensky regime falsely claimed that it destroyed these terror weapons, that Ukraine’s military no longer had them.

He lied like countless times before.

In early April, imperial tool Human Rights Watch falsely accused Russia of using these banned weapons — citing no evidence because there is none.

Separately on Monday, Russia’s Defense Ministry estimated that over 6,800 foreign mercenaries from 63 countries came to Ukraine to fight for the Zelensky regime.

At this time, over 1,000 were killed. Nearly the same number returned home.

Nearly 4,900 remain in Ukraine, around 400 holed up with Nazified regime fighters in Mariupol’s Azovstal’s steel plant.

Ones captured by Russian forces will not be treated like POWs.

They’re hired gun mercenaries, elements paid to kill Russian forces, Russia’s Defense Ministry explained, adding:

They’ll either perish ahead or face “criminal liability (charges if captured) and long prison terms” doing hard time.”

Weeks earlier, the Zelensky regime promised visa-free entry into Ukraine for foreign mercenaries willing to combat Russian forces.

On day 54 of Russia’s operation in Ukraine, there’s no ambiguity about how things have gone so far.

Ukraine’s inferior military to superior Russian forces has been battered, degraded and largely isolated in parts of the country with little remaining command and control or ability for the parts to work effectively as a whole against Russia’s military in control of where its forces are deployed.
