Precision-guided weapons hit Ukrainian military facilities
The Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov expressed his hope for a meeting between Vladimir Putin and Vladimir Zelensky after his negotiation with his Ukrainian counterpart, Dmitry Kuleba, in Antalya. The issue will be discussed in the Belarusian format. Sergei Lavrov added that Vladimir Putin never refuses contacts, but not the contacts for the sake of contacts. According to Sergei Lavrov, the latest statements by Vladimir Zelenskiy indicate that Ukraine is starting to understand the Russian approach. Sergey Lavrov pointed out that Russia doesn’t want the militarization of Ukraine. Russia stands for the neutral status of Ukraine, and Russia is ready to discuss the security guarantees. He added that Russia considers the refusal of the NATO to take into account the Russian interests in the matter of the NATO expansion to be unacceptable. The press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, previously told to the ’Reuters’ that Russia is demanding Ukraine to cease the military activities, state its constitutional neutrality, recognize Crimea as part of Russia, and the independence of the LPR and the DPR. He added that in this case the Russian military operation could be finished at any time — the RIA NEWS reported.
The information, published on the Twitter by the UN Secretary-General António Guterres about the «attack» on a hospital in Mariupol was a fake news — the First Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN, Dmitry Polyansky, stated on 10th of March. He attached a screenshot of a paragraph from the statement, which provides the data on the actions of the Ukrainian nationalists. “The locals reported that the Ukrainian forces kicked out the staff from the maternity hospital Number 1 in the city of Mariupol, and set up a shooting range on the territory of the institution. They also completely destroyed one of the city’s kindergartens” — the document stated.
The Russian forces and the DPR forces pushed the Ukrainian forces out from the town of Volnovakha. The offensive of the people’s militia of the DPR and the Russian forces continues. The main goal at the moment is the clearance of the city streets and residential buildings from the remaining Ukrainian landmines and shells. The main fighting in the city is over. There are some occasional skirmishes with small groups of Ukrainian troops. The release of Volnovakha will allow the Russian forces and the DPR forces to launch an offensive at the rear Ukrainian forces in Donbass. The end of the assault will create the conditions for a restoration of the city, and the return of the civilian life.
The DPR forces have liberated 78 settlements. They continue the offensive along the administrative border of the Zaporozhye region together with the Russian forces. The Ukrainian nationalists are cut off from the escape routes. The Ukrainian shelling of the houses of locals is still ongoing. Several villages in the LPR were cut off the power grid, some people were wounded. 3 villages in the DPR were shelled all at once within 10 minutes. The information is being specified.
The Russian Ministry of Defense reported that during the military operation in Ukraine, Russian forces destroyed more than 90% of Ukrainian long-range and medium-range anti-aircraft missile systems. 81 Ukrainian air defense radar posts were destroyed. This led to the loss of combat control of aviation and air defense of Ukraine. The Ukrainian air defense is only local in nature, and it isn’t capable of providing a significant resistance to the Russian aviation. «On the morning of 12th of March, long-range high-precision missiles hit the Ukrainian military infrastructure. The military airfield in the town of Vasilkov and the main center of the electronic intelligence of the Ukrainian forces in the town of Brovary were disabled» — the spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Defense, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, reported.
“We are receiving a huge number of applications from all sorts of volunteers from different countries who would like to come to the LPR and the DPR in order to participate in what they consider to be a liberation movement. The largest number of volunteers are from the the Middle East — 16,000 applications» — Sergei Shoigu stated on 11th of March during a meeting of the Russian Security Council. «Of course, we consider it to be a right thing to do to respond positively to those requests. Especially since those requests were made not for money, but for the true desire of those people. We know many of them — they helped us in the fight against the ISIS at the most difficult time, in the last 10 years» — Sergei Shoigu added.
Russia has called the UN Security Council to highlight the problem of the biological weapons research that the USA has been conducting in dozens of secret biolabs in Ukraine. The Russian, the DPR and the LPR forces have found some evidence that the Pentagon experimented with deadly pathogens. Igor Kirillov, the head of the Russian radiation, chemical and biological defense forces, announced that Pentagon officials could create bio-agents that could selectively target ethnic groups. The work was carried out in more than 30 biolabs in Kiev, Kharkov, Odessa, Lvov, and Poltava. Samples of biomaterial from the residents of different Ukrainian regions, belonging to the Slavic ethnic group, were also taken abroad, in particular, to Australia.
