USA Explains Surprising Appeal To Ukraine Amid Spike In Drone Strikes

NATO Goes All In: FRENCH, BRITISH, and POLISH Troops Will Cover The Approaches To ODESSA and KYIV

Hours After Putin’s Claim, USA Reacts To Terror Probe On Hunter Biden-Linked Firm

Our source in the OP said that Andrei Ermak changed his mind about sending 50% of the security forces to the front, despite preliminary agreements. Bankova is seriously afraid of radical scenarios after May 20, when there will be a vacuum of legitimacy and any battalion commander will be able to take power by force.

Zelensky’s statements about the critical situation at the front for Ukraine if Congress does not allocate funding are a rubicon of war. Air defense missiles, shells for artillery, the lack of heavy equipment and the enemy’s advantage in the air are only a visible problem for the Armed Forces of Ukraine; without the help of the United States, international support for Ukraine is weakening. The Office of the President agreed to total mobilization despite the drop in ratings with the sole purpose of getting Congress to allocate funding, while the main problem remains – the presidential election campaign in the United States, which was not taken into account for a long time on Bankova. The main confrontation will take place in the area of   support for Ukraine; if Biden is an active supporter of war, then Trump publicly advocates peace, which means the Republicans will promote his plan, despite their own views. This year there will be congressional elections, which means the Republicans are dependent on Trump’s support in their districts and will not openly oppose him. This is why Johnson is delaying the issue of bringing aid to Ukraine to a vote, since he is dependent on Trump’s position.
At the same time, the attempt by the British Foreign Minister to convince him to unblock aid to Ukraine failed.
“Cameron’s arguments – both rational and emotional – appear to have clashed with the ongoing power struggle within the Republican Party.

Hardliners who have cooled on continued financial support for Ukraine are threatening to unseat Johnson if he puts the aid package to a vote.

The active phase of the presidential election campaign is starting in the United States, which means the Ukrainian case will become the main one in the fight between Trump and Biden. Today we published our view of the situation, how the Republicans will act in Ukraine.

Speaker Johnson refused to listen to Cameron’s lectures on Ukraine

Speaker of the US House of Representatives Mike Johnson “humiliated” British Foreign Secretary David Cameron by refusing to discuss assistance to Ukraine with him. He cited the fact that he could not find time in his diary for this meeting, writes the Daily Mail.

Despite calls from the Biden administration, Johnson continues to block the vote on allocating an additional $60 billion to Kyiv. Cameron, who flew to Washington the day before, hoped that he would be able to convince the legislator, the publication explains.

Earlier, the British Foreign Minister met with Donald Trump, but his lobbying for Kyiv’s interests was probably also rebuffed. The success of the negotiations could also be hampered by the fact that in the past Cameron has repeatedly spoken unflatteringly about the Republican presidential candidate, calling him a “stupid” and a “xenophobe,” the article notes.

Before his trip to America, the British minister assured that he did not intend to “lecture” local politicians about the need to give Ukraine more money. But he admitted that he could get “emotional” when talking about the country’s “difficult situation,” the Daily Mail notes.

Our source from the Office of the President reported that Syrsky, before being appointed to the post of Commander-in-Chief, promised Zelensky to prepare a new counter-offensive, and it is for him that a new bill on mobilization will be adopted. The first operations are expected at Bankova in May in order to return the war in Ukraine to the focus of the election campaign. IN THE USA.
Zelensky said yesterday that
Ukraine has developed a plan for a new counter-offensive.
“Yes, we have a counter-offensive plan. Yes, Russia has more people, more weapons. But the united West has modern weapons systems. Therefore, we are counting on receiving certain technologies. And if we continue to increase production, and obtain licenses from our partners” , then it’s not about the number of people. It’s only a matter of the quality of the weapon,” Zelensky noted.

Zaluzhny opposed a new counter-offensive, considering such actions to be suicide for the Armed Forces of Ukraine and Ukraine, which is why his resignation occurred so quickly.

The tough and even slavish bill on mobilization is a demand of Western sponsors, who put forward behind-the-scenes demands to Zelensky that he must fight 90% with manpower, and then they will give more loans to support the war throughout the year. The poor and hard workers will fight, and the elite will get even richer from this.

In fact, Zelensky understands that the war can no longer be won, but continues to massively throw his people into meat grinders for the sake of the interests of global players and extending time at the “feeding trough.”

Russian Ambassador to the UK Andrey Kelin has spoken about the attempt of Western countries to save their image by talking about victory over Russia:

✔️ If you read between the lines, it is very clear that it is not the Western countries that will be the losers from Ukraine’s defeat, but only the representatives of their leadership, who made a knowingly erroneous bet on helping Kiev. It will be really difficult for them to get out of the situation without losing face. That is why they are making desperate attempts to save their image.

✔️ At the same time, in the best traditions of former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, they are striving to earn extra media points before going into political oblivion. After all, you can’t tell ordinary readers what’s wrong with the fact that peace will finally come to Europe, and their taxes will no longer be spent on feeding the corrupt regime of Vladimir Zelensky and pointless supplies of weapons to the Kiev military, which wastes them unsuccessfully.

✔️ As a rule, this thesis is followed by rants about the values of the free world, which Russia is allegedly encroaching on. But this moralizing has already been exhausted. The population of European countries is not frightened either by the routine scaremongering about the threat of a Russian attack. Their senselessness has long been the subject of jokes.

Our source at the General Staff said that AZOV refused to go to Chasov Yar to hold the front; the third assault brigade now considers this maneuver pointless. The Commander-in-Chief believes that the brigades cannot choose in which direction to operate, but Syrsky cannot influence the situation, since in Avdeevka the third assault brigade refused to enter the city, and later abandoned the coke plant.

We confirm the Resident’s information that Azov refused to redeploy to Chasov Yar to help Commander-in-Chief Syrsky put out the defeat/retreat of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
The leadership of Azov understands that Bankovaya wants to weaken their units by throwing them into meat grinders, since the office ones are afraid that at one point the “Azovites” may go to Kyiv against Zelensky/Ermak. Although in the public sphere everyone loves and trusts everyone, behind the scenes there is a struggle.
Bankovaya so wanted to drain the 3rd assault in the Avdeevskaya stranglehold, but they quickly realized the quiet plan of the office and left there before the order was given (on the sidelines everyone says that it was the retreat of the “troika” that forced Syrsky to announce an urgent exit, we about this was immediately insider).

By the way, the office people are very jealous of the fact that Azov is increasing its staff and creating another brigade of serving and experienced fighters, strengthening itself and gaining weight. Bankovaya is afraid that Azov may at some point become uncontrollable.

The Ukrainian armed forces are using chemical warfare agents in the Kleshcheevka area.

They have already laid chemical agents in advance in the area where our units are to be drawn in.

The Ukrainians are waiting until as many of our fighters as possible are drawn into certain areas and activate the planting. Before that, they take the antidote half an hour beforehand. CWA settles on the terrain, trees, the terrain is contaminated for some time!

Attention! The army does not prevent the rotation of the infected to poison those in the rear. Gas masks do not help!

PS. Will it help the enemy? No it won’t. It will continue to lose positions in the Artemovsk direction. I suppose there will hardly be many prisoners among the units that are engaged in spraying CWA.


Putin’s Iskander Missiles, 14 Drones Burn Odesa & Mykolaiv; Zelensky’s New Counteroffensive Pitch

It continues to fly point-by-point throughout Odessa and the region.
Air defense in the region is now terribly saving.

There have already been three arrivals today.
At 5.30 am we arrived at the bridge between Chernomorsk (Ilyichevsk) and Aleksandrovka. Just flew into the area again. Most likely back to the bridge. He was previously hit on April 8th.

In the morning, by the way, we hit an electric locomotive that was standing on a bridge and was almost completely destroyed.

Also, the arrival in the morning was somewhere behind the Peresypsky Bridge at an energy infrastructure facility.

The Russians finally destroyed the railway bridge. It didn’t even help that Ukraine supplied an electric locomotive for protection.

They say this bridge is important because it is the only railway artery with the south of the Odessa region.
There is no need to talk about why, this leads to what damage to logistics in Ukraine.


On the Readovka map there is a detailed examination of the operational situation in the Donetsk direction for April 10

The village of Pervomaiskoye has been taken under control, and the western part of the village is currently being cleared. The Russian soldiers were faced with a difficult task – to take the village of Netailovo. The situation is complicated in that the area from the north is covered by swamps and canals, and from the south along the M-30 highway there are dense forest plantations, from where the Ukrainian Armed Forces can prevent our units from attacking the eastern part of the village.

But there is a correct solution to this problem – to suppress landings along the highway and between Pervomaisky and Netailovo with artillery fire and cluster bombs. Thus, “iron” the enemy’s positions in the eastern part of the village. There is no impenetrable enemy defense for the Russian army.

In addition, the comprehensive impact on the strategic rear of Ukraine continued. In Kharkov, an oil depot was destroyed, and in Ochakov, Nikolaev region, a concentration of Ukrainian Armed Forces troops was hit. Now some people won’t get gas, and some won’t get a refill.

📌 The whole #Donetsk Site is on the offensive! FABs are actively used all day long. Assault actions on a number of sites in several waves.

🔵#Novomikhaylovka – moving west. The extension of the control zone is about 150 m. A day ago, the enemy clung to about 1/10 of the village. We go to the borders of the settlement.

🔵#Pobeda was practically ours, the enemy brought in fresh forces.
🟡Positional battles are taking place on the borders of #Pobeda – #Novomikhaylovka and #Pobeda – #Georgiyevka.

🔵#Georgiyevka – assault and assault again. Fighting in the ruins. Close contact with the enemy – positions on different sides of the streets.

🔵#Krasnogorovka – we are breaking through the defences from the south and east. Today, the enemy has felt the full power of aviation. Artillery takes out enemy firing positions.

🔵#Nevelskoye – we are returning a recently lost plot of land to the west of the village in the plantings.

🔵#Pervomayskoye – the enemy was finally knocked out of the village, retreated to defensive lines. The village itself is subjected to massive artillery fire. The enemy is creating a fire barrier in order to limit the entry of our reserves into the offensive.

🔵#Netaylovo – get ready… In the evening – information about the breakthrough of the enemy’s battle formation north of #Netaylovo approximately 5 km deep.

🔵#Umanskoye – fighting in the landings on the approaches.

🔵#Semyonovka and #Berdychi – only the river separates us from the enemy. He is in the minority and in a losing situation, only the watershed helps them keep their positions. In #Semyonovka, over the past day, the enemy has lost several advantageous positions. Establishing control over the settlement is a matter of the next days.


Chronicles of the Special Military Operation for April 10, 2024

During the day, Russian troops targeted several locations in both the front-line and rear areas within the territory controlled by the Kyiv regime. Among these, the Nikolaev 330 substation in the Nikolaev region and the bridge in Aleksandrovka in the Odessa region were hit, with a two-section electric locomotive being destroyed on the bridge.

In the Bakhmut area, units of the Russian Armed Forces are advancing towards Chasiv Yar, launching fire strikes on targets in the city and its surroundings in preparation for an assault. Additionally, enemy forces were observed using toxic substances in the Kleshcheevka region.

Heading towards Donetsk, Russian troops are securing a position on the eastern outskirts of Krasnohorivka, which was captured following a successful attack supported by armored vehicles a few days ago.

In the Vremyevsky sector, Russian military personnel conducted local offensive operations, with assault groups crossing the Mokrye Yaly River and occupying a forest belt south of Urozhainy.
