The January 6th Quiet Riot.

SINCE JANUARY 2021, there has been a lot of Establishment and Mainstream Media talk about an “insurrection” that took place at the Capitol, on January 6th, 2021. Hundreds and hundreds of innocent people have been swept up by the Biden Regime in a reign of terror and thrown into D.C. jails, where they have been subjected to physical and mental abuse at the hands of the authorities. The Government has gone after harmless pensioners who strolled through an open door, as well as men and women, who were nowhere near the location. And just recently, 19 year-old Carla Krzywicki and her mother, Jean Lavin, of Canterbury Connecticut, were arrested by the FBI, for walking into the Capitol Building. Keep in mind that no Government visits were paid to the thousands of black women and men of BLM, who looted stores and burned down cities all summer, nor to their white Anarchist/Communist comrades in ANTIFA, who did likewise. One might argue that the pair fell victim to an entrapment scheme, based upon evidence that Capitol Police officers invited the pro-Trump crowd in, as well as the presence of ANTIFA and BLM members, who had infiltrated Trump supporter groups, for the purpose of turning them violent; there are also indications that plainclothes police and government agents infiltrated the crowd, in order to pose as violent Trump demonstrators. There are enough proofs to create reasonable doubt that the Government is presenting legitimate cases, against the accused.

As one who was in Washington D.C. that day, but was unable to directly attend the rally at the Ellipse, I was nevertheless able to capture images and video footage, which suggest that the “Riot” was not a spontaneous event, but rather one that was planned and carried out by Deep State agents and Capitol Law Enforcement.

Arriving late in the morning, I began walking down Constitution Avenue NW, where I took this photo at 11:01 a.m.:

Above: Constitution Avenue NW near the Federal Trade Commission Building, at 11:01 a.m., 6 January 2021. There are no angry mobs to be seen (nor open coffee shops.)

DURING MY WALK, I encountered groups of people sitting on the grass, who were peacefully listening to guitarists play country music. It might have been another Woodstock, if it weren’t so cold… I also encountered people who were coming from the direction of the rally; they told me that the police would not allow any new arrivals to walk to the place where President Trump was giving his speech. So they were trickling back toward the Capitol. Since the police were turning people back, I opted to turn around and head back toward the Capitol Building, to track the progress of the Electoral Vote count, which most Trump supporters thought would be contested.

At 11:32 a.m., I took this photo of the Capitol Reflecting Pool; there weren’t many people around, as the picture shows:

Above: Capitol Reflection Pool, 11:32 a.m., 6th of January 2021.

I NEXT took a photograph of the Washington Monument, which is about 1.5 miles away from the Capitol Building. The estimated walking time between the two points, for a healthy adult in normal circumstances, is just over 30 minutes. Time is 11:38 a.m. Still very few people to see in the background, nor is there an angry mob coming from the White House.

IN THIS NEXT PHOTOGRAPH, taken at 11:39 a.m., the Capitol can be seen in the background. No one is visible on the steps of the Capitol, nor on the wide lawn in front of it.

Above: Capitol Hill, 11:39 a.m. 6th of January 2021. No one can be seen on the Capitol steps.

AT TWELVE NOON, I was crossing Constitution Avenue NW, on the north side of the Capitol, when I saw a column of men marching down the street. They had come from the east – the opposite direction of the Trump Rally, which was 1.5 miles to the west. Leading the column was Q Anon Shaman, or Buffalo Horns guy. As they started passing, I decided to film them. At the time, I thought the colorful group was composed of members of the Proud Boys. It sounded as though they were chanting, “WHOSE STREETS? OUR STREETS!” Whoever they were, they were not a mob: they moved under discipline, and witnesses told me they had been brought in on chartered buses. As the column passed, it moved toward the front doors of the Capitol, where 20 minutes earlier, as my previous picture shows, there was no one to be seen. These men and women, perhaps 300-400 in number, had just gained themselves front row seats for a riot that they would instigate – well ahead of most Trump supporters, who would trickle in later. Keep in mind that these false-flag agents had placed themselves in front of the Capitol doors, 1 full hour before Trump would end his speech, and 1 hour and 40 minutes, before any ‘mob’, made ‘angry’ by the President, would have arrived there, after walking 1.5 miles from the White House.

From Constitution Avenue, I walked around to the back of the Capitol Building, to take shelter from the wind. There was a loose collection of people in the area and no one seemed aware that anything was happening on the other side of the Capitol. As the photo below shows, people are calmly standing around, chatting with each other.

Above: Back side of the Capitol, at 1:28 p.m. 6th of January 2021.

At about 1:50 p.m., a man approached a group of people I was standing with, and started speaking in a rather incendiary manner, about going from “ballots to bulletts”, because “the will of the People” had been thwarted. He claimed that the police had detained him for 3 hours, because he had a suspicious bomb/boiling pot, along with some powdered ice tea mix. (I happened to see these items lying on the ground earlier, next to a nearby park bench. So the police had detained him, but left his “bomb” behind?) I started video-taping, just to get a record of what he was talking about. In any case, it seemed he was trying to get people angry and excited, but was unsuccessful. You can listen to him speaking in the video below. And as the camera pans right, you can see dozens of people, waiting calmly in line to use the port-a-potties… The only commotion to be heard, comes from the sirens of police cars and fire trucks.

Above: behind the Capitol Building, at 1:55 p.m., 6th of January 2021. People seem unaware of anything happening on the other side of the Capitol.

I decided to leave, but wanted to get a photo and film of the Supreme Court Building across the street. In the photo below, you can see two people who appear to be waving for a ride – but there was no taxi service! The only vehicles in sight are government vehicles.

Above: across the street from the Supreme Court Building, 2:00 p.m., 6th of January 2021.

A moment later, I started filming and the story-teller from minutes earlier appeared in the frame. He is wearing the red knit hat and waving a yellow, plastic bowl, as though he is signalling someone. As he moves to the right of the frame below, you can see his boiling pot in his left hand – so the police released him after 3 hours, so he could reunite with his ‘bomb’?

Above: Across the street from the Supreme Court Building, 2:01 p.m., 6th of January 2021.

I walked from the Supreme Court Building toward Union Station. As I was waiting, a Public Service Announcement came onto my phone’s screen, which indicated that anyone in Washington D.C., who was not a resident, had to leave the city by 6:00 p.m. I filmed the Trump supporters as they filed toward the train station. Everyone, without exception, walked toward the entrance in a calm, orderly manner. There were no fist fights among anyone, no acts of vandalism, nor commotions. The only disturbances were caused by the sirens of police and fire vehicles.

Above: outside Union Station, 3:10 p.m. 6th of January 2021.

Above: outside Union Station, 3:20 p.m. 6th of January 2021.

Above: outside Union Station, 3:21 p.m. 6th of January 2021.

All in all, January 6th was a quiet riot. There was a so-called, street-theater “insurrection” on the front steps of the Capitol, but it was led by Deep State agents-provocateurs and Capitol Police. The hundreds of people who have been thrown into D.C. jail cells, or who have otherwise been detained, are victims of a mass-scale entrapment, by an illegitimate government. Two innocent women died that day, and two others – 19 year-old Carla Krzywicki and her mother, Jean Lavin – now live in fear of a Regime that is threatening them with incarceration, for the ‘crime’ of accepting a Capitol Police invitation to walk through the rotunda of Congress. Based on the plentiful evidence of entrapment and Capitol Police misconduct, reported by news outlets like The Gateway Pundit, World Net Daily, The Epoch Times, The Still Report, and others, the charges against them – and the hundreds of others – should be thrown out.

Connecticut and Scytl Voting Systems: is it Now the Land of Steady Habits by Design?

In years past, I never had reason to suspect that election fraud would be a problem in state or local elections, because hardcopy paper ballots were used in the voting process, and so could always be hand-counted, if it was necessary to question any result, particularly if the margin of victory or defeat was razor-close.

Then in the ongoing controversy of vote fraud in Election 2020, of which Scytl is accused of being an actor, I decided to have a look at Scytl’s web page and see where their customers are in the world. I was surprised to see that Scytl had penetrated the Land of Steady Habits with its notorious voting machines.

From their website:



State of Connecticut


Online Training

“The State of Connecticut awarded a contract to Scytl to implement its online election training platform statewide. Using Scytl’s Election Training solution, the state is now able to provide the Elections Commissioners with a training platform to cover all the uniform procedures of elections.”

And not only does Scytl offer assistance with regular elections, it is available for use in referendums, party elections, university elections, union elections – even shareholder meetings! It is amazing just how pervasive this vote-tabulating system is.

Again, a sample from Scytl’s webpage:


Does this mean that Scytl has a presence in each of the spheres listed above in Connecticut? Perhaps not. But if any town has used Scytl voting machines to assist in referendums, be they voting on publicly-funded building projects or budget proposals, or town ordinances, the voting public would have to question the truthfulness of any referendum results, especially in light of Scytl’s suspected role in nation-wide vote fraud.

Perhaps it is more appropriate to ask if anyone at the State or local level, is asking for Scytl to intervene in election outcomes? Such a thing would require each town or organization to have a villain or two, or three, who would be as sinister in spirit and character, as the deed requires. Connecticut has 169 towns, and many fine people work for them; it is difficult to imagine those people, especially in the small towns, doing something so under-handed. And one would think it would be impossible to keep the secret. But other states have found such people to play the part.

During the 2020 Election, the Town of East Hampton provided throw-away #2 pencils, with which to fill in the ovals on the ballots. In the past, it provided marker pens. The difference is that #2 pencil marks can be erased. Apparently, the #2 pencils were provided, in the interest of inhibiting the spread of Covid-19, and it seems reasonable to assume that was their motivation; or perhaps there was a shortage of marker pens. It seems unlikely that there was some nefarious scheme to erase votes after 8:00 p.m. – after all, why go through the trouble of erasing x-number of ballots, when Scytl could be hired to do that?

Scytl vote-adjusting machines could be used though, as a way to thwart the enactment of any future plan to redistrict. Present state house and state senate districts are sometimes said to favor the Democrats, as they control 2/3 of the seats in both houses, even though there is a relatively even split in party control of the towns. With Scytl vote-adjustments, even a hypothetical court-ordered balance in redistricting, could leave the Republican Party as the minority in both houses, and permanently outside of the Governor’s Mansion, without them ever suspecting why. Until now.

Romanian Reunification with Moldava?

Above: Maia Sandu, the President of Moldava, is preparing to run for the Romanian Presidency in 2024.

PRAVDA: Maia Sandu, a Moldavan who is an ethnic Romanian, is also a citizen of Romania, according to Romanian law. For this reason, she may also run for president of Romania. Moreover, in Moldava her party has a majority in the parliament – this in turn, would enable the Moldavan Parliament to approve of a union with Romania.

The chairman of the Social Democratic Party (PSD) of Romania, Marcel Colacu, said that he is one of the supporters of Maia Sandu and the unification of Greater Romania.

The Humanist Social Liberal Party (PSUL) believes that this decision would be “untimely” and would not contribute to the unification of the two countries. Party representatives explained that the idea that the election of the same “ruler” in both countries would lead to a union of the two states, suggests ignorance of current constitutional and international law.

“This type of election cannot generate a union. In that sense it has no legal consequences and can serve only one purpose: to compensate for the lack of decision in Romanian political circles, which cannot put forward a competitive candidate for the presidential elections in 2024.”

Sandu met with Romanian, US intelligence agencies.

In early January, the President of Moldova made a private unofficial visit to Oradea, the home of NLP leader Ilie Bolozhan. There is an opinion that in the elections of 2024 he will work with Sandu as the future prime minister, thus creating the prerequisites for the unification of Romania and Moldova.

Romanian Senator Diana Shoshoaca said that Sandu “sold out her country to Soros”, and armed the military, in a run up to unification with NATO. “This means war. Why does NATO need the Republic of Moldova, if not to drag it into the conflict?” the senator said in an interview.

According to Bogdan Tsyrdea, a Socialist deputy of the Moldovan Parliament, Romanians are counting on a repeat of 1861, when Moldavian Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza was elected prince in Wallachia also; this led to the unification of Wallachia and Moldavia and the creation of the Romanian state. But not all of Moldova will accept this, he added. Implementation of the Romanian plans will lead to the withdrawal of Gagauzia from Moldova and consolidation of the sovereign status of Transnistria, with subsequent accession to the Russian Federation, especially if by 2024 Russia will solve the tasks of the Special Military Operation in Ukraine.

Russian Media: QAnon was Involved in Alleged German Coup d’Etat Attempt.


On December 7, the German newspaper Zeit reported a massive operation involving more than 3,000 soldiers, police and counterintelligence officers. Searches and arrests were carried out at 130 addresses in different German cities. 52 people are accused by the national authorities of involvement in a conspiracy to stage a violent coup. It is stated that those arrested belong to ultra-right terrorist organizations, including the Reichsburger movement, and are commitment to the ideas of QAnon. However, things are apparently a little more complicated.  Izvestia studied the history of the issue.

Some 5 years ago, the term QAnon evoked a sarcastic smile from political scientists and journalists. However, even now the mainstream American and European media use this word to refer to an anthology of all known “conspiracy theories” on both sides of the Atlantic: from reptilian hunters to anti-vaxxers; the accusation of ultra-nationalism and the use of “hate speech” is necessarily added to them. Indeed, if you try to explain the ideology of QAnon, then it will hardly be possible to do so.  The movement, which has neither a leader nor a structure, captured the minds of tens of millions of people around the world. It was born in October 2017 in just a few threads of one of the American imageboards, that is, from a dozen messages on the forum of an unidentified author.

At first, the QAnon narrative was more like an epic, in which United States President Donald Trump, along with his associates, fought against a world globalism represented by Hillary Clinton, George Soros, Bill Gates, many American and European politicians and show business stars (the same “deep state”). The WikiLeaks leak of 21,000 emails from former Chief of Staff Bill Clinton and Hillary’s campaign manager, John Podesta, is considered the starting point of the movement. As you know, the American intelligence services then blamed intelligence specialists of the Russian Federation for breaking into official mailboxes, and thus revealed to the world the infamous doctrine of “Russian interference”. The scandal, in turn, gave rise to the theory of the pedophile lobby among the American political elites, known as Pizzagate. Its next links were the “Jeffrey Epstein case” and, in part, the #MeToo movement.

For a while, the protest did not go beyond the internet and caused nothing but a smirk among the Washington elites, but as time went on, it became less and less funny. In less than a year, QAnon was able to win a huge following in the US and Europe, including congressmen and prominent figures in the Republican Party. A September 2020 Pew Research poll found that 41% of Republican voters thought QAnon was “somewhat” or “very good” for the country. Soon, Trump and MAGA (“Make America Great Again”) supporters announced their support. When asked about QAnon, Trump himself replied the with following: “I heard that these people love our country. I know they like me and I appreciate it.”

QAnon continued to transform, absorbing more and more different versions, theories and ideas, often quite radical ones. Many QAnon supporters consider the coronavirus pandemic artificially created, and someone is looking for the heir to the surviving John F. Kennedy. The virtual world finally mixed with the real one, and therefore it is not surprising that some of the theses of QAnon were picked up by representatives of radical ideologies on both sides of the Atlantic.


The promotion of QAnon in Europe has been linked to the figure of Stephen Bannon, Donald Trump’s campaign manager and later a senior political adviser in his administration. Bannon has repeatedly provided public support for right-wing conservative movements in Europe. Bannon is known for his meetings with representatives of Marine Le Pen’s “National Rally”, the “People’s Party” of Belgium, the Italian “League of the North” and “Alternative for Germany”, whose object was to create a continental political alliance called “The Movement” (The Movement).

However, in the case of the Alternative for Germany, not all of its members were in favor of creating such a coalition. The then co-chairman of the party, Alexander Gauland, called this project an “illusion”.

Today in Germany, as elsewhere, QAnon still lacks a specific political platform and remains an abstract, web-traveling idea that unites supporters of diverse protest groups, regardless of their political preferences. In other words, QAnon adherents can be found both among the voters of the Alternative for Germany and among those who voted for the Left.


Meanwhile, the German special services launched a truly large-scale special operation. Failed revolutionaries were sought and found among former and current officers of the Bundeswehr, policemen and politicians. According to Zeit, the rebels planned to subsequently restore a new government in Germany, headed by a representative of an ancient aristocratic family, Heinrich Reiss (in accordance with the family naming tradition – Henry XIII). Separately, it is emphasized that the former deputy of the Alternative for Germany, and now a judge, Birgit Malsack-Winkemann, was intended to be the Minister of Justice.

There is no reason to unite the German right with the Reichsburgers and QAnon supporters, into one political movement, and what is happening is more like an attempt to distract the public from real problems in the country, Vladislav Belov, head of the Center for German Studies at the Institute of Europe of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said in an interview with Izvestia. 

“Both of them are informal and undefined groups of people whose political views can be radically different. “Reichburgers” is an ideology that does not recognize the legitimacy of the Federal Republic of Germany and promotes disobedience to the state apparatus. QAnon has absorbed all possible “conspiracy theorists”. To say that they are somehow connected with the real Alternative for Germany political party is incorrect and illegal. It is likely that on the eve of the anniversary (December 8 – Ed.) of the incumbent government taking the oath with these arrests, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution is trying to demonstrate that it is still relevant and that its taxpayer funding is well spent, the expert said.

By the way, Heinrich I of Russia is considered to be the ancestor of the Reuss house… And the German press writes absolutely seriously, that the government investigation is checking for any Russian connections among the conspirators.

Russian Ministry of Defense Claims that Withdrawals are Diversionary Measures

Above: Russian forces withdrawing from Kharkiv Oblast.

Pravda, 11 September 2022: According to the official message of the Russian defense department, for the last three days, an operation was carried out to curtail and organize the transfer of units from Izyum and Balakleya to the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic. To cover the operation, diversion and demonstration activities were carried out, which staged the real actions of the troops. Russian media, however, is openly stating that “the initiative in the Special Military Operation has shifted to Ukraine.”

In the wake of this defeat, the Russian Ministry of Defense has responded with a “body count”, claiming that 2,000 Ukrainian soldiers and foreign volunteers were killed, during the Ukrainian advance, along with 100 tanks. If so, Kyiv and the world would consider it a price worth paying, for recovering more than 1,000 square miles of territory in a week’s time. Total Ukrainian losses in all the current offensives may come to 4,000 men KIA.

Unless the Russian Military either quickly recovers the lost terrain, or makes dramatic gains elsewhere, it will leave pro-Russian residents of the remaining occupied territories wondering if they should invest in Moscow’s promises of peace and stability, under a long-term Russian presence. Anyone living in the Kherson and Zaporizhzhya regions will not be encouraged by reports that the Russians abandoned their Ukrainian collaborators in the Kharkiv region to the enemy.

September and October may yield a bitter harvest for Moscow.

Poland Demands $1.3 Trillion in WW2 Reparations from Germany; in Response, Germans Demand the Return of Territory Ceded to Poland.

Pravda, 2 September 2022: Germans are actively commenting on the statement of the leader of the Polish ruling party “Law and Justice” Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who a day before proposed demanding 1.3 trillion euros in reparations from Germany.

Above: territories ceded by Germany to Poland and USSR, following the end of World War 2.

Judging by the comments, the initiative angered Germans. Many commentators on Twitter criticized the Polish government for this proposal, since Warsaw refused further reparations in 1953, RIA Novosti reports.

“Let’s. But then return all the German lands.” wrote one of the commentators.

“Oh, and they already calculated this without the” rent “for Silesia, Pomerania and West Prussia ?” — chimed another.

“No problem, but could you please give us back Silesia, Pomerania, West and East Prussia in return?” — remarked another.

“Do you want to talk about reparations? With great pleasure: how about restitution demands from my side for the house of my grandparents in Breslau (today, known as “Wroclaw” )?” tweeted another person.

It should be noted that in Poland for several years now they have been saying that Germany must pay multibillion – and even trillions, judging by the statement of Kaczynski – in reparations . Basically, this topic is supported by representatives of the ruling party. This idea also enjoys significant support among Polish voters.

As for the official position of Berlin, they emphasize that they are not going to discuss the issue of reparations, since they consider it closed for a long time. The unofficial position, however, also lies in the fact that Germany is not going to pay.

American Veterans Rescued over 17,000 US Citizens and Residents from Afghanistan, since Biden Abandoned them Last Year.

THE GATEWAY PUNDIT: Joe Biden and his Woke Generals abandoned THOUSANDS of Americans in Afghanistan and as many as 14,000 during their panicked escape from Kabul. In November 2021, the US State Department revealed that as many as 14,000 Americans were left to fend for themselves. On the other hand, 100,000 Afghans were allowed to flee the country in August and enter the US, without background checks.

Now this…
US veteran Chad Robichaux went on Newsmax today to discuss his organization Save Our Allies. According to Chad, his organization has rescued 17,000 US legal permanent residents from Afghanistan following the fall of Kabul to the Taliban.

Amazing that a handful of US Veterans, relying on themselves and donations, managed to accomplish more than a moribund, illegitimate US Administration bothered to do – and the latter literally had all the power in the World to make a difference, but did not bother to do so.

2020 Michigan State Supreme Court Election Stolen with Vote Machines

Michigan is a state that elects its state supreme court justices.

According to The Gateway Pundit, an audit of the 2020 Election in that state reveals that the voting results for the “down-ticket” candidates for State Supreme Court were tampered with, in order to flip that Court to a Democrat majority.

In Michigan’s down-ballot 2020 Supreme Court Justice race three candidates out of seven were programmed differently in the election system.  As a result, the court changed from Republican to Democrat.

The State of Michigan has been trying to suppress this information, by resorting to harassment with law enforcement. The audit team presented its case via live-streamed video.

World Net Daily: Republican Florida State Rep. Anthony Sabatini called for the state to arrest FBI agents conducting law enforcement outside Florida’s purview and to sever ties with the Department of Justice Monday…He said state legislators needed to put pressure on the FBI by limiting local agencies’ cooperation with them and by requiring them to seek permission from the state before conducting operations in Florida…“That’s just at the state level. At the federal level they need to be totally gutted and cut down,” he told the DCNF. “We need to be putting as much pressure on them as possible.”

President Trump’s home Mar-a-Lago was RAIDED BY THE FBI tonight.

President Trump released a statement moments ago.

These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents. Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate. It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections. Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before. They even broke into my safe! What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democrat National Committee? Here, in reverse, Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States.

The political persecution of President Donald J. Trump has been going on for years, with the now fully debunked Russia, Russia, Russia Scam, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2 and so much more, it just never ends. It is political targeting at the highest level!

Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 E-mails AFTER they were subpoenaed by Congress. Absolutely nothing has happened to hold her accountable. She even took antique furniture, and other items from the White House. I stood up to America’s bureaucratic corruption, I restored power to the people, and truly delivered for our Country, like we have never seen before. The establishment hated it. Now, as they watch my endorsed candidates win big victories, and see my dominance in all polls, they are trying to stop me, and the Republican Party, once more. The lawlessness, political persecution, and Witch Hunt must be exposed and stopped.

I will continue to fight for the Great American People!

Above: gas prices in America are soaring, but that has not stopped Ukraine from asking the U.S. for 6 billion cubic meters of gas.

From Pravda:

Kiev requested 6 billion cubic meters of LNG from the United States under Lend-Lease. It is noteworthy that Ukraine assured that it would pay off all debts in 2024. In an interview with Pravda.Ru, Alexander Dudchak, Ph.D. in Economics, a leading researcher at the Institute of CIS Countries , explained that Kiev’s promises to return money for gas are more than doubtful.

According to the economist, the likelihood that the United States will take such a risky step is small, but there is a possibility. At the same time, Washington is well aware that Lend-Lease will turn into a debt hole for Kyiv.

“This will cause problems in the Western market; at the very least, it can lead to a price increase. Moreover, to say that Ukraine will pay off in two years, but this is just a wonderful idea. Well done. Do they really take everyone for idiots? It is clear that Ukraine will not pay,” Dudchak explained.

Russian Media Reports on Military Operations in Ukraine, 6 June 2022.

A map published by the British Broadcasting Corporation, which shows Russian gains in recent fighting in the Donbass.

GAZETA, 6 June 2022: Russian media is reporting that the town of Svyatogorsk has been nearly completely conquered by Russian forces.

The Russian Defense Ministry said that the Russian Armed Forces almost took control of the city of Svyatogorsk (DPR) and the surrounding territories. The official representative of the Russian Defense Ministry, Major General Igor Konashenkov , said that Ukrainian national formations blew up a bridge across the Northern Donets River, in order to prevent their own soldiers from retreating.

“The remnants of the battalions of the Ukrainian 95th Air Assault Brigade and 81st Separate Airborne Brigade were cut off from the main forces and supplies, due to the destruction of the bridge” he added. Konashenkov clarified that about 80 Ukrainian servicemen reached the Russian side by swimming and surrendered.

In other news, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky claims that now the most difficult areas for the Armed Forces of Ukraine are on the Zaporozhye and Severodonetsk directions. According to him, “there is a threatening situation in the Zaporozhye region and Severodonetsk.” Zelensky admits that the situation for Ukraine could become even worse. “If there is a breakthrough in the Donbass, it will be very difficult for us,” he added.

Russian Newspaper Discusses Moscow’s Military Mistakes in Ukraine.

Above: a Russian tank destroyed in Ukraine; Moscow mistakenly expected ‘to be met with flowers.’ The barrel of the Russian tank is witfully emblazoned with the word “WOLVERINES”, a reference to the 1980s film, RED DAWN, which told the story of a fictional Soviet occupation of America.

PRAVDA 6 June 2022: The deputy head of the State Duma Committee for the Development of Civil Society, Colonel General and former commander of the Airborne Forces, Vladimir Shamanov , said the main miscalculation, “was that we will be met with flowers.” “This is one of the main mistakes that we felt very keenly in the first five days. Today we have already overcome this issue,” Shamanov said.

The Russians also did not expect the Ukrainian military to hide behind civilian human shields. “When conducting defensive operations in cities…The soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine occupy the upper floors of high-rise buildings, and hold the civilian population below,” explained the former commander of the Airborne Forces, retired Colonel General Georgy Shpak.

Significantly, the Russian military did not expect the NATO officer corps to coordinate the military operations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in addition to providing Kyiv with full intelligence information.

The Russian military also lacked training and experience in conducting main force operations against a similarly equipped opponent, emphasis in Russian military training having focused on anti-terrorism operations.

The head of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov , said that at the beginning of the special operation in Ukraine, there were certain “mistakes” and “shortcomings”, but in the second half of May, the development of hostilities is fully consistent with the original plan.

Military Situation, Ukraine 3/4 April 2022

Above: the military situation in Ukraine 3/4 April 2022.

Russian forces continue to evacuate north-central Ukraine; Armed Forces of Ukraine follow in their wake and reclaim towns that were captured just weeks ago. However, in the south, Russian forces regained control of the territory north of Mariupol, while in the east, the Russian Army captured significant amounts of territory in Kharkiv Oblast, in the region around Izyum. Compare Russian withdrawals and gains in the map above, with the territory under their control on 2 April 2022, in the map below.

Military Situation in Ukraine 2 April 2022

Above: the military situation in Ukraine, 2 April 2022.

Russian forces have withdrawn from areas immediately to the north and northwest of Kyiv, the capital; meanwhile, Russian withdrawals are taking place east of Kyiv; Ukrainian Army units are harassing Russian rearguards and re-occupying towns and villages as the Russian Army withdraws. It is believed that a number of the withdrawing Russian units will be sent to reinforce the efforts to capture all of the Donbass.

In the south, reports of Ukrainian recapture of most of the territory north of Kherson may have been false, as it appears that the Russian military again controls most of the region west of the Dnipro River, including Velyka Oleksandrivka and Borozenske. The town of Lyubymivka is contested between Russian and Ukrainian forces.

Compare Russian control of Ukrainian territory at the end of this week on the map above, with that controlled by Russia at the beginning of this week, on the map below.

Military Situation in Ukraine 26-III-2022…?

Above: the military situation in Ukraine, for night of 25/26 March 2022.

If military situation reports coming out of Ukraine are to be believed, then one will recognize that Russian arms have suffered a few reversals, since Wednesday of this week. Moreover, one will recognize that Ukraine’s military has made considerable gains, since the start of the special operation on 24 February.

On the northern front, to the east of Kyiv, the town of Slavutch and the city of Chernihiv have been relieved, with direct overland supply corridors being established to each; further east, the Mena-Shostka axis has been cleared by Ukrainian forces (or Russia withdrew from it), leaving a wide swath of hostile territory between the Russian groups operating in the Chernihiv and Konotop regions. Some of the towns that are located in this liberated zone, include: Kholmy, Pyrohivka, Shostka, Krolevets, Korop, Sosnytsya, and Borzna. This liberated corridor is approximately 105 miles (170 kilometers) in length, while varying in width, from 25 miles (40 kilometers) to 55 miles (90 kilometers).

On the southern front, Russian forces have either withdrawn, or been driven from, two areas: northwestern Kherson Oblast on the right bank of the Dnipro River: including the towns of Borozenske, Velika Oleksandrivka, Lyubymivka, Vysokopillya, Kachkarivka, and Mylove.

The second area lies further east, in the Mariupol region; Ukrainian forces reoccupied territory taken by the Russian Army and Donbass militias in the previous week, along a northwest-southeast axis, roughly from Pokrovske to Mariupol. If the situation map is a true representation of the situation on the ground, it means that Ukrainian forces are just 11 miles from Mariupol.

Compare Russian territorial losses on the map above, with those on the map below.

Above: the military situation in Ukraine, 25 March 2022.

What the events of the last 24 hours tell us – if the situation reports they are based on, are faithful and true – is that the Ukrainian Armed Forces – without little or no air cover – undertook 3 widely separated offensive operations – simultaneously. Moreover, these three widely separated, simultaneous offensive operations all achieved a measure of success – simultaneously. In the opinion of this blog, the Ukrainian Armed Forces are simply incapable of such a feat on their own. They have plenty of spirit, there is no doubt there, but in the opinion of many observers prior to the 2022 invasion, the Ukrainians lacked the organizational ability to carry out offensive operations – more so, since many command, control and communications (C3) sites were destroyed by Russian bombardments. When considering the ability of the Ukrainians to counter every Russian move and to then inflict reversals on it, not just locally, but operationally in several places simultaneously, I am reminded of the Battle of Britain, which took place in the summer and autumn of 1940. Hitler’s Luftwaffe was tasked with defeating the Royal Air Force, as a pre-condition for a successful German amphibious invasion of the British Isles. The plan for that assault was code-named Operation Sea Lion. That it never came about was due entirely to the Royal Air Force’s victory over Hitler’s Luftwaffe – and much of that victory was owed to a new military technology available to the British: radar. RADAR, or Radio Detection and Ranging, allowed the British to know precisely which path attacking German aircraft were flying on. This information was relayed to Fighter Command, which was then able to concentrate its smaller force of fighters at the most vital points of air defense. As a result, the more spread out German forces were never able to establish superiority and Luftwaffe losses in bombers and aircraft mounted. Unable to defeat the Royal Air Force, the Germans were forced to postpone Operation Sea Lion, indefinitely.

Now it’s nearly a century later, and spy satellites and electronic eavesdropping have become for modern armies, what radar was to Great Britain in 1940. All those real-time images from satellites above earth, and electronic means for intercepting enemy communications, allow modern armies to know enemy intentions and plan for them accordingly. Modern communications allow command structures to be aware of battlefield events in real time, and respond swiftly. Ukraine, to the best of my knowledge, has no space program of its own, nor an independent satellite launch capability; therefore, it does not have its own top-tier, well-integrated C3 system – it has to come from elsewhere. That elsewhere is either NATO or the United States. The Ukrainian Army’s ability to first block Russian Army offensives and then launch counteroffensives – not only on one axis, but on multiple axes simultaneously in less than a month, suggests to this blog that NATO has inserted its command, control, and communications systems into those of Ukraine. NATO, with its HQ in Brussels, is effectively in command of this war and directing it against the Russian Army and Moscow.

Military Situation in Ukraine 25-III-2022

Above: the military situation in Ukraine, 25 March 2022. Pink shaded areas represent Russian control.

Previously, we posted a situation map for the front lines in Ukraine, for the night of 22/23 March. That post portrayed images found on Wikipedia, which depict the military situation in Ukraine, as it has been estimated from over 600 cited news sources. Accordingly, areas west of the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv were reported as having been swept of Russian troops; however, we discovered the following day, that most Russian positions west of Kyiv were portrayed as being intact. It would seem that word of a great Ukrainian military victory were premature. New military developments are being reported for 25 March, whose veracity may or may not stand in succeeding days. Those developments are as follows:

In the north near Kyiv, Ukrainian forces are reported to have recaptured the western suburb of Makariv; to the east of the capital, Ukrainian forces appear to be trying to reopen the Mena-Shostka corridor. Ukrainian forces have advanced on an east-northeast from Mena to Sosynytsya to the western approaches of the Mezynski National Park. More ominously for the Russians, Ukrainian forces appear to have infiltrated into Russian rear areas and taken control of a few cities that the Russian military had previously secured. These towns are: Slavutch, near the Russian-Ukraine border, about 40 miles (60 kilometers) west of the besieged city of Chernihiv; Shestovytsya, a southwestern suburb of Chernihiv; Krolovets, a town located 25 miles (40 kilometers) south-southwest of Shostka; Hlukhiv, located about 25 miles east-southeast of Shostka; Druzhba, located about 25 miles east-northeast of Shostka; and Pustohorod, a town located about 25 miles east of Shostka. The eastern suburbs of Shostka, Hlukhiv, Druzhba, and Pustohorod form an irregular area that roughly contains 25 x 35 square miles (40 x 60 square kilometers). If it is true that Ukrainian forces have re-infiltrated these areas, it may be as a result of Russian forces redeploying to focus their efforts on recovering the rest of the territory of the Lugansk and Donetsk Peoples’ Republics, which make up the eastern breakaway regions of the Donbass.

Ukrainian control of the towns and areas mentioned above, not only poses a threat to Russian supply lines and communications going directly from Russia to the front, but also threatens the lateral communications between the major Russian groups operating on either side of the Mena-Shostka axis.

In the south, Ukrainian forces have recaptured the eastern and southeastern suburbs of Mykolaiv, and have even crossed into Kherson Oblast.

The Military in Situation Ukraine, Night of 22/23-III-2022

Above: Military Situation in Ukraine, Night of 22/23 March 2022.

Local Ukrainian counterattacks have swept away Russian forces that had been deployed on the Korosten-Kyiv Highway, on a northwest-southeast line, from the town of Malyn to Borodyanka; similarly, local Ukrainian counterattacks have pushed back forward Russian elements, which had advanced into the western suburbs of Kyiv, from the north.

In the area southwest of Konotop, Russian forces have secured an 18 x 25-mile area around in the region of the town of Talalaivka.

Compare the situation of Russian forces in Ukraine in the afternoon of 22 March (below), with the situation of Russian forces in Ukraine in the night of 22/23 March (above).
