The fierce fighting ends in Mariupol // Poland published a map of the division of Ukraine
The battles for the city of Mariupol are coming to an end. The Ukrainian terrorists from the national battalion «Azov» and the Ukrainian marines were forced into the industrial zone of the city, where the «Azovstal» factory is located. They still continue to hold some residential areas. The Ukrainian servicemen do not surrender — they are trying to leave the city in small groups. The mayor of Mariupol, Vadim Boychenko, left the city. The Ukrainian authorities explained that he did that «in order to manage the city and to interact with the residents remotely.»
The biggest battle of March took place near Izyum. The city was completely captured by the Russian forces. For several days there were artillery battles. In the final battle near Izyum, the Russian forces managed to capture an important strategic point on Mount Krimenetz, and expanded their hold on the left bank of the Seversky Donets river. Strong missile strikes and decisive maneuvering actions of the Russian motorized infantry allowed the Russian forces to push the Ukrainian forces back to the towns of Slavyansk and Barvenkovo. The retreating Ukrainian forces are trying to gain a foothold on the new defensive lines — their attempts are doomed to failure. The Russian forces are rapidly entering the flank and the deep rear of the Ukrainian forces.
Important Ukrainian military facilities, such as airfields, warehouses, command posts, weapons depots, military equipment and ammo, radar stations, bases and so on are being constantly destroyed by the strong and precise hits of the Russian aviation, artillery, and missile systems. Over the past 24 hours, 9 Ukrainian S-300 missile launchers and 4 Buk-M1 missile launchers, located to the south of Kiev, were destroyed by high-precision, long-range, sea and air-based weapons. A large armory in the Donetsk region and a temporary base of the Ukrainian nationalist battalion in Lisichansk were destroyed. 60 military installations, including 2 command posts, were destroyed over the past day.

5 Ukraine — Poland
A former member of the Ukrainian Parliament, Ilya Kiva, published a Polish map of the division of Ukraine. He insists that the West plans to divide Ukraine, and Warsaw threatens the territorial integrity of Ukraine. “The map was shown on a Polish TV channel. They showed what we have already spoke about, and what the West is ready to do” — he explained and added that with such actions — the West shows that it is ready to accept the changes of the Ukrainian borders. The map, seen on the Polish TV channel ’TVP1’, had the Lvov, Ivano-Frankovsk, Volyn, Rovno, and Ternopol regions of Ukraine included in Poland. Chernivtskii region went to Romania. Transcarpathia went to Hungary. Odesa, Nikolaev, Kherson, Zaporozhye, Dnepropetrovsk and Kharkov regions, as well as the LPR and DPR, recognized by Moscow, were given to Russia. According to the map, only the center and north of Ukraine will remain independent. Seems like Poland declares its own aggressive intentions, and is trying to get the NATO peacekeepers to be deployed in Ukraine in order to gain a foothold in west of Ukraine, and further provoke separatism and the Polish influence in the region.
The 23rd anniversary of the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia took place yesterday. On 24th of March, 1999, the NATO launched the first air strikes against cities in Yugoslavia. The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs reminded the initiators of that murderous campaign — the USA — of the need to apologize for that, and all other unleashed wars. The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Hua Chunying, demanded an apology from Washington for the criminal bombings around the world. She stated that the current conversations about morality, coming from the US politicians, look like a mockery. «The USA and the NATO aren’t in a position to judge the moral principles of any country until they apologize, and compensate, for the damage and suffering they have caused to the people of Yugoslavia, Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan» — the Chinese Foreign Ministry’s website quoted her words.
