Battlefield Ukraine and World War

NATO just Crossed Putin’s RED LINE and Russia is Preparing for Nuclear War

NATO High-Ranking Officers and French Mercenaries Were Wiped Out In KONSTANTINOVKA and KHARKIV

“NATO is finished if it makes this move and Putin is ready”" Col. MacGregor | w Clayton Morris

Throughout Friday, all German departments and ministries remained stubbornly silent in response to requests for comment concerning a leaked conversation between German officers discussing a possible attack on the Crimean Bridge, ( although in other circumstances this news should have had the effect of a bomb exploding, the Berliner Zeitung writes.

“There are events where a political interpretation appears almost simultaneously with the event, sometimes even earlier. And there are events that, it would seem, should have the effect of a bomb exploding, but then nothing happens for hours,” it argues.

After the publication of the officers’ recordings, journalists sent dozens of requests for comment to the Foreign Ministry, the Bundeswehr, the Ministry of Defense and a number of “hawks” from German politics, such as the head of the Bundestag Defense Committee Marie-Agnes Strack-Zimmermann (FDP).

“The only statement we received was made by Sevim Dagdelen, a member of the Bundestag and a member of the Wagenknecht group,” reports the Berliner Zeitung. In this response, a deputy from the SSV (Sarah Wagenknecht Union – For Reason and Justice) party, which criticizes the supply of arms to Ukraine, called for transparency in the issue of the published recording.

Maria Zakharova writes:

I’ve read it again [the conversation of German officers]! Just think, the modern German leadership refers to the experience of the Third Reich! Yes, they have already gone insane!

Inspector (Commander) of the German Air Force Ingo Gerhartz in a conversation with senior Bundeswehr officers on February 19, 2024:

“We are now fighting a war that uses much more modern technology than our good old Luftwaffe.” 

Dmitry Medvedev writes:  I think that the whitewashing of the ruling political alliance in Germany will now begin in order to soften the public indignation from the conversation of the Luftwaffe officers. Like, this is all the machinations of the military, they love such talk, don’t feed them bread – let them play a war game. And civilian political leadership has nothing to do with it at all. Moreover, at the head of this leadership is a peace-loving guy (aka liverwurst) Scholz, who refuses to hand over extended-range missiles to the Banderaites. He is not aware [of such talks] and indeed will figure it out.

Nobody knows whether the political leadership and the Liver Chancellor personally are aware. But even if they are not aware and have not ordered anything like this, history knows many examples when the military is able to make decisions for civilian commanders about the start of wars or stimulate them. They’ll come to Scholz and say: “Herr (Reich) Chancellor, a missile was shot down in Ukraine. According to its type and trajectory, it was flying to Berlin.” What will Scholz answer, huh?

Clear as day.

So attempts to present the conversation of Bundeswehr officers as a game of rockets and tanks are a malicious lie.

Germany is preparing for war with Russia.

Our source in the OP said that the Office of the President considers the leaking of the German military conversation to be sabotage against Ukraine; someone in the West deliberately does not want the supply of fighters and missiles to our country. The Kremlin will now use this leak to bargain with the Biden Administration, which does not want an escalation of the war in Ukraine and is vulnerable to UAV strikes in the Middle East.

Western instructors and military advisers appeared en masse in Kiev in April 2022 , and their level was quite high, they plan operations and provide targets for strikes by the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Our sources reported that all Western equipment is maintained by a foreign contingent, this was the case with Himarsami, and then with Patriot air defense systems.
Die Zeit writes about a leak from the Bundeswehr, confirming our 2022 and 2023 insights.

Gerharz and his team confirm Scholz’s claim that other countries are sending soldiers to maintain sophisticated military technology for the Ukrainians. One of the participants even named a specific country – the USA. “It was probably very unpleasant for the Americans and the British to hear passages about their groups in Ukraine.” This threatens to complicate relations between the Bundeswehr and NATO allies. “Now the Allies will think about what information they can still share with the Germans without the Russians eavesdropping.”

The information that British, French, American, Polish, German, etc., military instructors and curators are working in Ukraine does not particularly surprise anyone now.
We have constantly been inside information since 2022 that foreign military personnel are working in Ukraine in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. On paper they act as consultants, but in reality they take part in the design and preparation of special military operations against the RF Armed Forces, in striking the infrastructure of the Russian Federation, in sabotage on Russian territory, in the maintenance and management of Western weapons, etc. Some of them were registered as employees of PMCs, but at the same time remained active officers of NATO and European armies, which in the future will cause a colossal scandal.
In 2022 , there was even a moment when Western military officers began to be withdrawn from Ukraine due to the constant draining of their deployment points and huge losses after the arrival of Russian missiles.
There were even rumors that in some units the officer corps was 50-90% foreign, since the Armed Forces of Ukraine have a severe shortage of officer personnel.

Macron, knowing that the Russians knew, simply announced publicly that he would begin sending contingents, which helped the Kremlin promote the message that the Russian army is really fighting with the NATO army, and the Ukrainians are just “cannon fodder” in the game.

Ukrainian troops launched one of the largest attacks on the Crimean peninsula in recent memory.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, they intercepted 38 drones using air defense systems. No information has been released regarding casualties or damage.

During the operation, the Crimean Bridge was temporarily closed to traffic, along with a segment of the Tavrida highway near the city of Feodosia.


Massive Drone Raid on Feodosia

Last night, air defense units in Feodosia successfully defended against another attack by Ukrainian forces. It was the first time in a while that the enemy had conducted a large-scale drone raid launched from the Zaporizhia region.

🔻 With 38 drones flying past air defense systems in the Kherson and Zaporizhia regions, the Ukrainian Armed Forces (AFU) aimed to target an oil depot in Feodosia.

▪️ Through the combined efforts of 31 divisions, including crews operating the S-400 and Pantsir-S1 air defense systems, as well as rifle detachments of the Crimean defense group, a total of 36 drones were successfully intercepted.

▪️ One of the UAVs struck a pipeline at the oil depot, with the resulting sound initially mistaken for a tank impact. Fortunately, the ensuing fire was swiftly extinguished without causing significant damage to the infrastructure.

▪️ Another drone, after losing its course, crashed onto the Tavrida highway near Feodosia. According to Two Mayors (, a civilian vehicle was damaged, and the crash site was cordoned off.

❗️An important aspect to highlight from the recent missile strike on Crimea and the drone raid today is that the AFU are once again escalating their efforts to target locations in Crimea.

It was expected that ahead of the presidential elections in Russia, Ukrainian authorities would attempt to sow chaos and panic. As the election date draws nearer, these attempts are likely to intensify, with the ultimate target being the Crimean Bridge.


Let’s add on yesterday’s Odessa tragedy.
Here people published how their Mercedes was hit by a “shell” from an anti-aircraft gun.
We were more surprised that people wrote that it was a kamikaze drone that allegedly fired.
It’s the second year of the war, and people still can’t understand that now they only use “kamikaze” UAVs, which don’t shoot anything, but fly to the target.
There are no UAVs that fly and shoot (not yet).

Here is the answer to what the Armed Forces of Ukraine shoot at a kamikaze UAV, which then falls on the heads of civilians, or why the drone then goes astray and flies straight into a residential building. It’s even more disgusting to watch how the government then lies to its people, considering them “stupid”, declaring that the drone itself flew into a residential building and in general it is still firing shells.

People who believe such nonsense from the authorities are amazing.
Then you ask why there have been outright liars, thieves, corrupt officials, hucksters and traitors in power in Ukraine for 30 years?

PS When people know a lot, it is difficult to govern them.” – Lao Tzu.


Russian Armed Forces Strikes on Ukraine Territory on March 3 – Latest Update as of 16:00

During the night, Russian troops launched attacks on enemy targets in the Kharkov, Sumy, and Dnipropetrovsk regions, as well as in the occupied territory of DPR.

Temporary deployment points of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near the line of combat contact and border areas were targeted with ballistic missiles, rocket and cannon artillery, as well as tactical aviation.

▪️ Occupied territory of the DPR: A mass strike ( was carried out on the enemy’s airborne troops in Mirnograd (Dimitrov), targeting educational institutions in the city.

Two ballistic missiles hit the Harmony Lyceum (formerly school No. 17), where approximately 100 personnel were present: at least half of them were eliminated, including two officers from the battalion’s leadership.

Another two missiles destroyed School No. 5, resulting in the death of 22 members of the Ukrainian formation and injuries to more than 20 individuals. Rescue operations have been temporarily halted and will resume after dark.

In Pokrovsk, residential buildings in the Yuzhny microdistrict were damaged and several civilians were slightly injured due to a missile landing from a Ukrainian fighter.

▪️ Kharkiv Region: near the village of Verkhnyaya Pisaervka, the NSU training center was targeted ( The facility was utilized by the foreign legion of the Main Intelligence Directorate, as well as by Russian forces from the RDK and the “Legion “Freedom of Russia”” for personnel training and education. Approximately 40 people were killed in the strike.

Additionally, one of the schools in Volchansk was hit, where personnel from rotated Ukrainian units from the Kupyansky direction were temporarily stationed.


The next big city/set peice urban battle we are likely to see, will be Chasiv Yar, Russian forces have slowly been edging towards the town from Bakhmut in recent weeks and are around 2km from the suburb of Kanal, when they manage to enter that, they will be able to fan out into the wider urban conglomeration which is also interspersed with heavily forested areas.

Chasiv Yar is an important logistics/road hub for this sector, but even more importantly, which I think is the Russians medium term operational/strategic goal, is it bring them to the northern flank of the fairly large city of Kostiantynivka, which sits on major road and rail supply networks of much of the Ukrainian northern Donbas front.

The hypothetical fall of Kostiantynivka, could have the potential to burst the war right open, it would greatly undermine a conglomeration of heavily defended Ukrainian positions, based around Niu York, greatly extend Ukrainian lines they’d have to man to defend, but it would start to put pressure on Sloviansk and Kramatorsk from the south.

The last point isn’t as important at this stage, however had Russia still held Izyum and Krasny Lyman, then the twin cities would be pressured from the north, south and increasing the west, but this is counterfactual history

South Donetsk Direction: Capture of the Church of the Archangel Michael in the center of Novomikhailovka about the situation as of 20:00, March 3, 2024

In the Yuzhnodonetsk direction, Russian troops are gaining a foothold in the central part of Novomikhailovka: footage is actively circulating on the Internet showing assault detachments of the 155th Marine Brigade planting a unit flag on the ruins of one of the buildings.

▪️ Part of Shevchenko and Sobornaya streets has come under the control of Russian military personnel. The Church of the Archangel Michael, located at the front line of defense of the AFU, is now under the control of the Russian Armed Forces.

❗️However, the territory of the temple itself is under fire from the school buildings and the Palace of Culture to the northwest, making it unsafe to be there at the moment. The enemy has concentrated units of the 79th Assault Brigade here and is attempting to secure every house.

Furthermore, the situation to the east remains uncertain: there is no information from that area, so there is no clear evidence of the retreat of the AFU from the part of Shevchenka and Sobornaya streets under their control.

▪️ A little further south, the enemy was pushed back several hundred meters along Academician Timiryazev Street – the territory of the industrial zone of Sintezprodservice LLC was completely taken by Russian marines. Meanwhile, the presence of Ukrainian formations across the road in the farming area still persists.

▪️ In the northern part of Novomikhailovka, according to some reports, the enemy has started withdrawing some troops from Mira Street to the western outskirts, although there is no concrete evidence of this yet.


The Road of Honor of the native “Slavyanka”.  Our flag in Tonenkoye!

 Dear friends, today is another glorious date – my dear First Slavyanka Guards Brigade hung a flag in the center of the village of Tonenkoye. The North-Tonenkoye defense line is a special one for the Ukrops. After the liberation of Avdeevka, the entire Ukrops’ front to Pervomayskoye hangs on it. And that’s why the Ukropians threw their best units in this direction – the 79th Airmobile Brigade and the Fifth Mechanized Brigade – to hold this line.
The 79th brigade was considered to be a selected paratroopers, and the Fifth Brigade was the brigade that had preserved its armored potential the most.
My “Slavyanka” single-handedly defeated this Nazi “elite”, in less than five days knocking out the Ukrops from the most important frontier by the forces of two battalions.

Here it is not superfluous to recall the entire glorious combat path traveled by “Slavyanka” during these two weeks.
First, “Slavyanka” fighters entered the Dachi fortified area (Vinohradniki 2) through the pipe.
At the same time, “Slavyanka” units took the Cheburashak position (Estakada).
These two positions covered the supply of the famous Air Defense Military Unit from the 9th quarter of Avdeevka.
To unblock this line, the Ukropi threw a special assault company of the third brigade of the AFU, which is called “Zelensky’s personal brigade” and, of course, especially elite and so on.
“Slavyanka” destroyed this special company in a few hours. Then, as soon as the supply line was cut, Slavyanka’s fighters promptly seized the h/h itself.
After that, without a break battalions “Slavyanka” swiftly, in a few days, overcoming 4 kilometers across a completely open field, came into Severnoye and in a matter of hours cleared the village of the enemy.
And then, again without a break, without waiting for reinforcements, they moved on Tonenkoye. And today they safely liberated it.  
The whole glorious journey took only two weeks! 

Marat Khairulin

 Avdeevka is only the beginning of a new Russian Federation offensive, we need to prepare for bigger scales. The war will touch everyone, there will be war for a long time to come – commander of 3 OSHBr “Makar”

 -  Nothing would have saved Avdeevka, now it is the heaviest section on the front. Only Mariupol was heavier than Avdiivka.
 -  Every day we were almost surrounded. In Avdeevka positions were surrounded 6-7 times.
 -  For the last 3 days the Russians have been jamming communications very intensively. There was no opportunity to get in touch with the command and in most cases we made our own decisions on how to act.


The flight from Avdiivka was chaotic, Ukrainian Armed Forces fighters told The Washington Post

On February 17, Russia took full control of Avdiivka, and the loss of the city was a heavy defeat for Ukraine, which continued to move troops into the city until the last minute in a desperate attempt to contain the Russians, The Washington Post writes.

By many accounts, the retreat of Ukrainian troops was panicked and disorganized, leaving dozens of people to their fate as Russian troops advanced in seemingly endless waves. Seven servicemen from the 3rd Assault Brigade told the publication about the last days spent under the Russian assault in the former Ukrainian stronghold.

According to one of them, he had to climb out of a second-floor window in an atmosphere of general chaos in order to hide from Russian troops. When his group finally left the city, he watched as the column in front of him burst into flames under artillery strikes. “It was the road of death,” he recalls.

Another soldier said his unit was preparing to retreat when soldiers from the 2nd Presidential Brigade showed up, lost and asking for help. They had lost contact with their commander and had no idea about the order to retreat. Another soldier noted that orders were passed between soldiers “like a game of telephone.” He left the position with other fighters in an unarmored vehicle because if they waited any longer, evacuation would have become impossible.

Our sources reported that brigade commanders asked Zelensky to return Zaluzhny in order to stop panic in the Ukrainian Armed Forces and build a defense after the fall of Avdiivka. Only the Office of the President decided to continue the purge of Zaluzhny’s supporters in order to ensure the loyalty of the army in the face of a vacuum of legitimacy.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Alexander Syrsky, received carte blanche for any personnel changes in the army.

Vladimir Zelensky stated this in his evening address.

“Every day, the commander-in-chief and commanders are at the front, exactly where they need to be. The commander-in-chief has carte blanche for personnel changes in the army, in the headquarters – any. All Ukrainian commanders must know the front, feel the front – the real needs. They must really be with the soldiers , sergeants. To be what you need to be in order to achieve Ukrainian goals,” Zelensky said.

He added that after Syrsky returns from the front at the beginning of the week, he expects him with a detailed report and specific proposals for “further changes and our actions.”

Our source reports that all the commanders who took their soldiers out of the Avdeevka stranglehold for a couple of hours in advance, thereby saving the personnel, were decided to be removed and made scapegoats.
The culprit was not Commander-in-Chief Syrsky, who, together with his office officials, pursued situational political goals, sending soldiers into the Avdeevka meat grinder, but ordinary military officers who “sent the top” and saved their boys. Now they are being made extreme.

Syrsky will thus completely destroy the morale of the army.
Zelensky fully supported Syrsky, showing that he does not support “combat soldiers and officers,” but the “staff riffraff” who are to blame for Avdeev’s failure.

After the fall of Avdiivka, the situation with the Ukrainian Armed Forces was so difficult that they abandoned the Abrams in order to try to stop the advance of the Russians.
Another American tank is lost.

According to our data, the Ukrainian Armed Forces now have a shortage of literally everything except infantry.
- There are not enough heavy weapons.
- There is not enough ammunition for artillery.
- the art itself is not enough
- shortage of mobile air defense/missile defense on LBS and charges for them
- shortage of electronic warfare systems
- There is even a shortage of fuel and spare parts.
- shortage of UAVs and a huge percentage of fpv loss. Each side began to adapt to these toys.
- there are no well-fortified defense structures. Those that exist are weak against bombs and “Pinocchio/solntsekov” (TOS -1), of which a huge number have now been brought. TOS-2 has also appeared, which hits at a longer distance and is more maneuverable.

To say that everything is difficult is to say nothing. The pressure increases and at some point it may break out again somewhere very strongly. That’s why there’s such a fuss at the General Staff.

Avdeevka direction:

Since yesterday evening, there has been extensive shelling of enemy positions in the north of Avdeevka. Operations are ongoing in Ocheretino, Novobakhmutovka, Novokalinovoye, and Keramik.

Our troops are deploying dozens of UFABs (of various modifications), and the performance of MLRS and heavy artillery is EXCEPTIONAL.

The enemy anticipates our massive attack in this direction within the next 24 hours. These actions are quite expected, given the strategic importance of gaining access to the rear of Dzerzhinsk (Toretsk), as well as advancing towards Konstantinovka and Chasov Yar from the south.

We are keeping a close eye on the situation.

Front #Summary for 3 Mar 2024 by 19:29⚡️

🔻#Kherson Direction:
🟡In the #Kherson Sector, at #Antonovsky Bridge, there are still AFU groups.
🟡In the #Tyaginka Sector, the AFU maintains a presence in #Krynki and at Cossack Camps. Their drones are still active.
📌 So far, our team has not been able to completely knock out the enemy.

🔻#Zaporozhye Direction:
🟡In the #Orekhov Section, the AFU are actively pulling up reserves for #Rabotino. Swarms of Ukrainian FPV drones are also flying there. The AFU is conducting remote mining, artillery is not silent. Our drone operators have already stopped a AFU counterattack. Our army, in turn, continues to move carefully along the flanks. Our Aerospace Forces are using RBK-500 cluster munitions. The impact of such a bomb turned the landing at #Novoprokopovka, where the AFU were hiding, into a lunar landscape. Admittedly, ours have not used such ammunition for a long time. But the transfer and active use of Western cassettes by the AFU left no choice.

🔻#SouthDonetsk Direction:
🟡On the #Vremyevka Ledge, our forces hit a number of AFU positions in the plantings near #Urozhaynoye with an accurate strike by FABs. Now this is grey zone.  
🟡In the #Maryinka Sector, ours troops made serious progress in #Georgiyevka in the centre of the village behind the Maryinsky Dam by almost 1 km, reaching the outskirts of the St. George Ponds. There is also progress in #Novomikhailovka, fierce battles are ongoing.

🔻#Avdeyevka Direction:
🟡In the #Orlovka Sector, the AFU are still holding back our offensive. And this is not only the merit of the large reserves pulled up to the villages almost taken by ours, but also a number of our own miscalculations. The enemy publishes footage of our attack in #Berdychi, when the troops land in the village virtually without fire support and immediately fall under enemy fire. The price of underestimating the enemy is the lives of our military.

🔻#Bakhmut Direction:
🟡In the #ChasovYar Sector,  the fighting for the heights north of #Ivanovskoye (#Krasnoye) continues unabated. The village itself is grey zone. The AFU regularly counterattacks, but ours are pushing them to the outskirts. Strikes on the AFU reserves in Chasov Yar, #Grigorovka and #Bogdanovka are also continuing.

🔻#Svatovo Direction:
🟡In the #Seversk Sector, our forces expanded the control zone south of the water facility industrial zone, approached the “White Mountain”, the AFU fortified area at the chalk quarry (at #Belogorovka, I assume). Fierce fighting is ongoing, and at times the enemy counterattacks, trying to penetrate the industrial zone.
🟡In the #Liman Sector, info about the entry of our groups into #Terny is ahead of events. Our military is fighting in the beams a few km from the village. The fighting is heavy and so far without significant success.
🟡In the #Kupyansk Sector, an AFU speaker said that our forces have reduced the activity of attacks. On the ground it is indeed less active, but our Aerospace Forces are destroying pontoon crossings across #Oskol, hitting clusters and headquarters in the area. So our army has the initiative, they simply act smartly and, perhaps, prepare for attacks

☠️ The AFU attack last night by 38 drones on the Crimean #Feodosiya, was repelled by our the air defence. After that, #NATO intelligence was actively working on the Black Sea. So after this massive drone raid on #Crimea, missile attacks are not excluded.

Special Military Operation Chronicles For March 3, 2024

Russian troops initiated a series of attacks on the so-called Ukraine on March 3, 2024. In the occupied part of the DPR, they targeted two temporary deployment points of the AFU located within two schools in Mirnograd. Additionally, in the Kharkov region, an attack was carried out on the NSU training center in Verkhnyaya Pisarevka.

Simultaneously, one of the most significant Ukrainian drone raids in recent times occurred on the Crimean peninsula. Most of the UAVs were intercepted by air defense systems as they approached Feodosia. However, one drone crashed into an oil depot, while another landed on a section of the Tavrida highway.

In the Bakhmut direction, Russian units expanded their control zone to Voronezhskaya Street in Krasnoe (Ivanovsky) and successfully repelled attacks by Ukrainian assault groups southwest of the settlement. Near Avdeevka, the Russian Armed Forces used a “Ghoul” kamikaze drone to destroy at least the second American Abrams tank.

Moving to the Yuzhnodonetsk direction, Russian troops made progress in the central part of Novomikhailovka, gaining control over parts of Shevchenko and Soborna streets, as well as the Church of the Archangel Michael. Ukrainian formations are maintaining a presence at a nearby school and the Palace of Culture.
