Ukraine war is deliberately going very slow coz Russia is avoiding causing civilian casualties, says Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu
all going according to plan... two more weeks...


The slowdown of Russia’s military operation in Ukraine is intentional with a view to evacuating the population and avoiding casualties among civilians, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Tuesday.

Russia’s Armed Forces are creating humanitarian corridors and announcing ceasefires to ensure the safe evacuation of residents from encircled settlements, he said, despite this approach stalling the progress of the country’s forces.

“Of course, this slows down the pace of the offensive, but it is being done deliberately to avoid civilian casualties,” he explained at a meeting of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) Council of Defense Ministers.

Unlike the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Shoigu said, Russian troops are not carrying out strikes on civilian infrastructure where there may be people nearby. Instead, identified firing positions and Ukrainian military facilities are being hit with “high-precision weapons,” he added.

maybe it makes sense if you ignore all the civilian casualties already caused by Russian troops in the war.

what happens when Ukraine reads rt.com and finds out Russian war progress has stalled due to this "no civilian casualties" rule? Ukraine civilians can just get in front of Russian armies who then can't do anything about it!

Ukraine will begin negotiations with Russia after it returns its territories lost after the start of the Russian military special operation on February 24, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky said in an interview with the Japanese NHK TV channel.

"Of course, we must return all our territories. But it will most likely be related to the victims. To begin with, we plan to return [the territories] to the state before February 24. And then we will sit down at the negotiating table," he said.

Re: Ukraine war is deliberately going very slow coz Russia is avoiding causing civilian casualties, says Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu
economic war...... even slower


WASHINGTON, May 24 — RIA Novosti. The US Treasury Department will not renew the license allowing Russia to service foreign debt under sanctions after May 25.
According to the distributed notification, the Office for Control over Foreign Assets of the department "will not renew the provisions of the general license 9C... which expires on May 25, 2022 at 00.01 Eastern European time (07:01 Moscow time)."
Russia will have to pay Eurobonds on May 27.
In April, Western media wrote that Russia could default on debt obligations, since foreign banks refused to execute instructions in foreign currency on sovereign Eurobonds issued by Russia-2022 and Russia-2042 due to sanctions. At the same time, the Russian authorities declared their readiness to pay investors the necessary amounts in rubles. The Ministry of Finance noted that all claims in this situation should be addressed to the authorities of states that illegally create obstacles to making payments. They also clarified that investors — bondholders will be able to convert this money into currency immediately after Russia returns access to frozen accounts.
The restoration of diplomatic relations with the West will be long and difficult, the Foreign Ministry said
The head of the Russian Ministry of Finance Anton Siluanov, in turn, stressed that Moscow is ready to prove in the courts that it has done everything possible to fulfill its obligations.
After the start of the Russian military special operation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine, the West announced new sanctions against Russia. Calls to reduce dependence on Russian energy resources have become louder in Europe. Many brands have announced their departure from the country.
However, this sanctions pressure has already turned into economic problems for the Western countries themselves, causing an increase in fuel and food prices. [link to ria.ru (secure)]

Pucará Defensa: The Russian Armed Forces will surround the AFU grouping in Lisichansk from the western direction
After the withdrawal of Ukrainian forces from Popasna, a reserve in the form of the 10th Mountain Brigade from Ivano-Frankivsk was transferred to this area.
May 24, 2022

Analysts of the Argentine publication Pucará Defensa note that the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and LDNR are successfully developing an offensive in the Donbass in the northern sector of the front. So the Allied forces operate from several directions at once: in the area of Popasnaya, Severodonetsk and Estuary. According to experts, the most critical situation for the AFU was formed in Severodonetsk. This city is under critical pressure from the Allied forces. It was assumed that the Ukrainian forces had to retreat from this area. However, this did not happen.


"However, the Russian 2C4 destroyed the bridge connecting this locality with Lisichansk. Many hoped that the Russian troops would take a course for Bakhmut, but they are moving north, to Lisichansk, and northwest, in the direction of Serebryanka - Belogorovka," analysts told the publication.

After the withdrawal of Ukrainian forces from Popasna, a reserve in the form of the 10th Mountain Brigade from Ivano-Frankivsk was transferred to this area. Pucará Defensa notes that the Russian command has allocated about 15 BTG for the destruction of the AFU group in Severodonetsk and Lisichansk. Additional reserves are also being transferred here. It is reported that the tank columns of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in the area of Popasnaya stretched for kilometers. And all this armada will fall on the entrenched Ukrainian units in Lisichansk and Severodonetsk, analysts are sure.

Earlier it was reported that the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation captured the borders of the city of Zolotoye and are moving towards Lisichansk. [link to yandex.ru (secure)]

The humanitarian situation in the regions controlled by Kiev is rapidly deteriorating and is approaching a critical point. This was stated by the head of the National Defense Control Center of the Russian Federation, Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev, reports TASS.

He referred to the data of the UN Children's Fund that 8.7 million people are starving in Ukraine. The world Organization also estimates that 22.8 percent of children under the age of five suffer from malnutrition.

Mizintsev said that Western countries are striving to export grain from Ukraine as soon as possible through the so-called solidarity corridors engaged by the European Union. At the same time, they "absolutely do not care about what will happen in the country after the emptying of Ukrainian granaries," and Kiev, despite the shortage of food and the threat of a food crisis, continues to indulge them.

On May 24, the first grain train from Ukraine arrived in Lithuania. The cargo arrived via Poland to the south of Lithuania, from where it will then be delivered to the port city of Klapeida for loading on merchant ships. According to Laura Gabrilaviciute, a representative of the LTG carrier company, two more trains with Ukrainian grain, butter and corn are due to depart from Ukraine to Lithuania this week.

Earlier, British Foreign Minister Liz Truss supported the idea of creating a coalition of countries that will unblock grain supplies from Ukraine. Trass approved the dispatch of warships to escort vessels from Odessa. [link to lenta.ru (secure)]

Re: Ukraine war is deliberately going very slow coz Russia is avoiding causing civilian casualties, says Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu
The Verkhovna Rada proposed to introduce a bill that allows commanders to use weapons against soldiers if they left their positions or refused to carry out an order. A serviceman of the People's Militia of the DPR with the call sign "Sith" believes that the introduction of such amendments to the law will entail deplorable consequences for the Ukrainian army. He does not rule out that soldiers will start killing their commanders.

Fighter with the call sign "Sith": the APU is close to collapse, soldiers will start killing commanders
"Sith" noted that this bill actually makes the possible killings of subordinates by the command legal. If earlier such tactics were hidden in every possible way, now the Kiev leadership intends to allow the killings at the official level.

"It's no secret that the National Security Forces used fines, corporal punishment, and even executions against their own. And what do we see as a result? The whole "Azov" * in full force surrendered. It means that violent measures are ineffective," the DPR officer said.

Ordinary soldiers will realize that the military command will be able to shoot in the back at any moment. Officers will cease to be leaders and turn into hated supervisors.

"Sith" is convinced that if the bill comes into force, the AFU militants will begin to surrender en masse. On the one hand, Kiev hopes to strengthen discipline in the ranks of the Ukrainian army, but on the other hand, such methods will inevitably lead to protests.

"This is a mine laid by the legislators of Ukraine under their own army. <...> I think that now the Ukrainian army is closer than ever to collapse," the DPR serviceman said in an interview with MK.

*A Ukrainian nationalist regiment recognized as an extremist organization and banned in the territory of the Russian Federation.

This was stated by the head of the National Defense Control Center of Russia, Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev.

According to him, the forces of the Russian Navy eliminated the mine danger in the water area of the Mariupol airport. Measures are also being taken to restore the port infrastructure.

"For the safe exit of foreign vessels from the port of Mariupol, a humanitarian corridor with a length of 115 miles and a width of 2 miles in the direction of the Black Sea will be organized from 08:00 Moscow time on May 25," he said.

Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry announced the completion of the demining of the port of Mariupol. [link to russian.rt.com (secure)]

The representative of the General Staff, Major General Igor Konashenkov, said that Russia would hit "decision-making centers," including Kiev. After that, some of the top officers of the CIA and the Pentagon promptly relocated to the German base of Rammstein, the newspaper "Free Press" reports.

SP: The United States suggested to Putin which decision-making centers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine should be hit by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation
m24.ru

"As Russia weakens during the fighting, Moscow will increasingly rely on its nuclear arsenal in order to send a signal to the West and demonstrate its strength," said the head of US military intelligence, Lieutenant General Scott Berrier.

At the same time, the United States has long admitted the possibility of a nuclear war in Europe, it is to a certain extent desirable for them. It is noted that the American press "suggested" to Vladimir Putin where the "goals of primary importance" are located: Ukraine and Europe. We can assume that it is either Germany or Poland.

According to the publication, it would be possible to hit the "decision-making centers" in Warsaw or German Ramstein with a simple dummy. However, the fact that it takes only 995 seconds for the Sarmat to launch from Kaliningrad to deliver the planning warheads to Washington, 202 seconds to London, 200 seconds to Paris, and 106 seconds to Berlin does not leave the public alone.

Earlier, NVL reported that Ukraine plans to deploy a special group of high-ranking American military.
