The Poles began to get tired of the Ukrainian “rabies”. In response to another action, they send Ukrainians to work or return home to fight. And these sentiments in Polish society will only intensify: the rudeness and shamelessness of immigrants from Ukraine is already pouring out not only into endless street performances, but also into fights, one of which recently ended in the murder of a Polish citizen. Zrada, which was provoked by their behavior by the refugees themselves, who, rather, look like a wandering big top.

In connection with the greatly increased threat of registration of the “Severodonetsk boiler”, as a diversionary maneuver, the Armed Forces of Ukraine may well attempt to counterattack in the Nikolaev direction – informs Telegram-channel . True, it is worth noting that for this purpose two brigades – the 28th and 60th Ombr, are clearly not enough. The latter was completely formed after the start of hostilities as part of the reserve corps and was equipped with weapons and military equipment according to the residual principle. The rate of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on success is possible only due to long-range artillery, which will operate as part of separate “wandering” guns under the cover of urban development and NIKOLAEV. It is possible that Ukrainian troops will adhere to the “creeping offensive” tactics worked out over the years in Donbas, trying to occupy separate strongholds along the entire line of contact. As for the counterattack in the direction of ALEKSANDROVKA, this will not be the first and even the second attempt for the 28th brigade to advance in the coastal direction. Most likely, the Ukrainian command believes that it will be able to achieve some kind of cover for the advancing units from the remaining ship and boat staff of the Ukrainian Navy.

In Mariupol, the police, the administration, all from the locals, have been formed. No one is chasing anyone, there are no searches. Peace and tranquility. There is a curfew, from 6 p.m. Tattooed with a swastika are periodically detained, they crawl out to bask in the sun. Buses were allowed, so far only through the streets, which were vacuumed from fragments. There will be water soon, they have already let it in to see the places of damage. Moreover, on the way to the city, they began to repair the road. They take out the garbage, remove the broken equipment from the roads, writes the Telegram channel Real news on the DPR.
The power supply has been partially restored – to the ambulance station and a number of other vital facilities.
Villages and Donetsk merchants bring all kinds of food to the market – vegetables, milk, cottage cheese, meat and fish. Expensive. In addition, many people simply do not have money, they live solely on humanitarian aid.

After some time, the term will be established in historiography: Battle on the Seversky Donets. It was the bed of this not the largest river that determined the picture of the battles of March-May 2022. Attempts to cross and reach the rear of the enemy – this is the main task of the warring parties. It was the successful, albeit bloody, crossing southwest of IZYUM that allowed Russian troops to take this extremely difficult city for assault and advance towards SLAVYANSK. The Armed Forces of Ukraine do not leave attempts to repeat something similar to the northwest of Izyum, until they succeed. The crossing was destroyed, several AFVs and an unknown number of soldiers were lost. Also unsuccessful was our crossing at BELOGOROVKA. It is characteristic that the crossing during the war and the crossing at some army competition differ from each other like sports fencing at the Olympics and a real sword fight in the thick of the hand-to-hand combat of the Middle Ages.

A civilian from VOLNOVAKHA tells Telegram-channel AThow she saved a tanker from the DPR, who was the only one left alive from his squad and was shell-shocked. And from her words, you perfectly understand why our guys are real liberators, and the Nazi “defenders” really don’t care about civilians.
