Saboteurs are drowned along with boats
Aleksey Rulev, head of the press center of the Dnepr group, said that Russian divisions in the Kherson direction, a dozen and a half Ukrainian saboteurs were put out of action and three boats were sunk. The officer said: “In the area of the settlement of Dneprovskoe, 15 Ukrainian nationalists, three high-speed boats, as well as ammunition for artillery and small arms were destroyed by a precision strike.” Our gunners smashed the warehouse of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with weapons and military equipment.

And Yaroslav Yakimkin, an officer of the press center of the Zapad group, reported that in the Kupyansk direction, the fighters had eliminated two DRGs of the Ukrainian Armed Forces from the fight near the villages of Sinkovka and Novoselovskoe. Also, according to him, three attempts to rotate Ukrainian units that were trying to get replenishment near the villages of Ivanovka, Artemovka and Sinkovka were successfully thwarted. Well, in the area of Stelmahovka and Novoselovsky, four enemy observation posts were multiplied by zero by artillery fire. There is nothing to see here, go through the forest.
Ukrainian T-80 downed by three shots
The duel of the Russian tank T-90M “Breakthrough” Western Military District and the Ukrainian armored vehicle T-80. The commander of our tank company with the call sign “Bolshoi” sparingly shared his impressions with RIA Novosti: “The task was to go to closed firing positions. It was necessary to hit the enemy tank. He moved quickly towards our strongholds. From the third shot we hit the engine. The tank caught fire. Burnt out myself.” According to the tank officer, scouts corrected their work with the help of a drone. He came, he saw, he struck.
Generals of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are trying to explain the “difficulties” in Artemovsk
Viktor Khorenko, Commander of the Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, acknowledged extremely difficult situation in Artemovsk (Bakhmut) after he made a sortie to the western quarters, where the Armed Forces of Ukraine are resisting the Wagner attack aircraft. The statement of this sad fact was reported by the press service of the command of the Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The day before, Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, said that the situation in Artemivsk is discussed at every meeting of the headquarters of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, several times a week. At the same time, the former deputy commander of the Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Sergei Krivonos, said in an interview with Channel Five that the independent army is paying a terrible price for this city due to the fact that “some made mistakes and did not prepare the city for the necessary defense.” According to Krivonos, not only approaches to Bakhmut, but also the city itself had to be prepared for defense. The general believes that this was not done qualitatively, and now because of this, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are suffering “quite large losses.” Enough for who? And for what?
Soldiers of the Independent have tears in their eyes when interviewed by the British
During an interview with a British newspaper The Telegraph the soldier of the Armed Forces of Ukraine declared that he did not know what he was fighting for in the east of Ukraine and let out a mean male tear. His eyes were wet after these words: “Young guys are dying. They have never seen anything in their lives. It’s hard to watch. Sometimes you cry quietly. I don’t understand what it’s for.” This fighter does not fire at the enemy – he evacuates the wounded and killed from the front line. The Ukrainian serviceman refused to answer the question about what was the most terrible thing he had seen in the trenches: “Whoever was here will understand.”
Western technology gets stuck in Ukrainian black soil
Andrey Marochko, a retired lieutenant colonel of the People’s Militia of the LPR, said that military equipment arriving from NATO countries in the NVO zone does not tolerate local weather and road conditions. It just gets stuck in heavy rains. And the Armed Forces of Ukraine, for example, are trying to use Soviet tractors to evacuate the wounded, and not Western ones. In particular, the light armored multi-purpose tractor transporter (MTLB) is very popular. Ukrainian doctors are trying to negotiate with officers of other units in order to wave Western equipment at Soviet ones. Well, or they simply ask to give them multi-purpose tractors, at least for the time of mudslides. Off-road is our everything!
Two dozen shells of “NATO” caliber flew to Donetsk
The DPR representative office at the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of Issues Related to War Crimes of Ukraine reported that the Armed Forces of Ukraine fired two dozen rockets at Donetsk: “Fire was recorded from the armed formations of Ukraine in the direction: and Kuibyshevsky districts), 20 rockets were fired from the MLRS. The shelling of the largest city of Donbass began at five o’clock in the morning. NATO 155-millimeter caliber shells were flying in different parts of the city. They don’t seem to have any others…
Purges from “pro-Russian businessmen” begin in Square
Vadim Melnik, the former director of the Economic Security Bureau (BEB), said there are “a large number of pro-Russian businessmen and former members of parliament” in the country with the same sentiments. On the eve of his dismissal, Melnik, in an interview with inews, revealed plans for a “big purge” at the top. The Kiev regime is ready to seize assets that belong to the “Russian aggressors” in Ukraine. The retired Melnik raged: “Given the large number of pro-Russian businessmen, former members of parliament, oligarchs, there is a lot of work to be done.” Maybe Melnik would have been glad to take part in the purges and wringing out personally, but he was kicked in the backside with a boot on April 11th. Here he talked.
Looking at Ukraine, Biden recalls Vietnam with a shudder
Ronald Prussen, a professor of history at the University of Toronto, opined that Joe Biden’s policy on the square suggests that he is haunted by the specters of the Vietnam War. Professor Prussen told The Conversation that it was Biden who was one of those who advised President Barack Obama not to forget the terrible consequences of the Vietnam conflict when he increased the military contingent in Afghanistan. According to the historian, Biden, remembering the lessons of Vietnam, proceeds from the sad lessons of 50 years ago regarding Ukraine – and therefore does not want to send either American planes or the American military to Ukraine and be directly involved in the conflict. Prussen writes: “Shadows of Vietnamese ghosts are evident in Biden’s measured approach to Ukraine, especially in his deliberate reluctance to engage US Army soldiers in the fighting.” Well, so-so “thoughtfulness” …
