______________________________

Today, DNR Deputy Defence Minister E А Basurin stated at a media briefing in Donetsk that our forces captured and removed nearly 500 pieces of enemy equipment in the Debaltsevo pocket after it liberated the area, saying, “Our engineering units found and removed 471 pieces of military equipment, of which 198 units were in good working order”. He scoffed at the junta allegation that the “Debaltsevo pocket” didn’t exist. In particular, the DNR forces removed from Debaltsevo:

  • 58 tanks (15 operable)
  • 14 2S1 Gvozdika 12.2-cm SP howitzer (nine operable)
  • 6 D-30 12.2-cm howitzer (all operable)
  • 13 2A65 MSTA-B 15.2-cm howitzer (all operable)
  • 3 BM-21 Grad 12.2-cm/40 MLRS (2 operable)

Basurin noted, “All Ukrainian equipment after restoration and rehabilitation will equip our units, and we’ll use those not repairable as a source of spares. There are still significant numbers of Ukrainian weapons and equipment scattered near ​​Debaltsevo, but most of that is actually only useless junk. Some we can use for future mine clearance activities, but all we can do with the rest is to scrap them”. Basurin showed reporters pictures of destroyed and abandoned Ukrainian equipment, saying, “These are only some of the photographs taken on the battlefield. However, even these show you how heavy the Ukrainian losses were in the ‘Debaltsevo pocket’“. On 18 February, our forces liberated Debaltsevo from junta occupation. During their retreat, the junta forces laid many booby-traps and mines and they destroyed much infrastructure.

Today, the DNR MChS reported that houses in Gorlovka received significant damage from junta shelling last night, “Shelling in Gorlovka destroyed four houses and two sheds, besides damaging other buildings”.

Andrei Darkovsky, head of the Gorlovka GMA*, said that Gorlovka suffered heavy damage as the result of junta shelling, “After the shelling, we have broken gas and water lines; there’s a lot of work to do. Of 18 municipal electrical substations, nine are out-of-order. Also, there was much destruction and damage in residential neighbourhoods”. According to the DNR Minoborony, last night, the junta aggressors directed massive artillery and mortar fire at Gorlovka, noting, “They fired 15.2-cm artillery and 8.2-cm mortars”.

The Gorlovka Municipal Health Administration told us that one man died and a woman suffered injuries in the junta shelling last night, saying, “One man died, he was about 50-years-old, we don’t know his exact age. In addition, a woman born in 1963 had cranial trauma from shell fragments. She’s now in hospital, in the neurosurgery department of the city hospital. Her condition’s stable; last night, they performed a successful operation”.

Municipal sources in Gorlovka told us, “We detected a fire in a high-pressure gas pipeline after the shelling. We also powered-down 18 electrical substations. Of those, maintenance crews managed to repair nine. The shellfire destroyed six private homes, four of them in Nikitovsky Raion and two in Tsentralno-Gorod”.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s SUPER ‘COON! And he’s bringing back that kitten that wandered off whilst you were gardening. “Now, can I have a can of that nice tuna fish that I know you keep under the sink? Pretty please? I DID bring back your cat…”

29 April 2015. Say “Thank You!” Before It’s Too Late

00 thank you for the victory. russia. 28.04.15

______________________________

This year is the seventieth anniversary of the Victory over Fascism… the youngest vets are in their eighties. Show your gratitude before it’s too late…

The Uniate nationalists in the Ukraine HATE VIctory Day… why? It’s because they honour Nazi collaborators who served in the SS, the UPA whores of the Nazis and Americans, and the Trawniki men who served in the Nazi occupation forces and in the concentration camps shoving Jews into the ovens. If you support the Ukraine, you support those who glorify Nazis. Ugly, ain’t it?

I support the HEROES of the Red Army. If you denigrate them in any way, you’re my enemy, and I’ll oppose you (I don’t give a rat’s ass if it’s clergy… if they refuse to honour the Great Victory and the Red Army that won it, that means that they honour stinking collaborators and stand with the theomachistic junta in Kiev). It’s time for us in the Russian diaspora to make all those in our ranks who refuse to honour the Soviet legacy “stand and deliver”. Our Patriarch honours the podvig of the Soviet people… so should we. We should start by demanding that the sellout quisling Potapov leave Radio Liberty and issue a public renunciation of his treasonous work for the US government (he supports himself and his family via his treachery to Holy Rus).

We should stand up for our bleeding coreligionists. If we don’t, we help hammer the nails into them. That’s all that one has to say…
