Russia’s Defense Ministry has announced a ceasefire around the giant fortress-like Azovstal steelworks in Ukraine’s port city of Mariupol to allow a civilian evacuation from the flashpoint industrial area, almost a week after Moscow said it had fully seized the city.
Reportedly, scores of covert operatives of the SBU, Ukraine’s notorious intelligence agency, have infiltrated into Russia disguised as refugees.
During the second phase of the special operation, Russian armed forces plan to establish full control over Donbas and southern Ukraine, to provide a corridor to Crimea. And Ukrainian saboteurs detained.

Hostilities have significantly increased, and Russian missile strikes are pounding the territory of Ukraine. Some report that the northern part of the Mariupol industrial plant is under the DPR control.
For the sake of saving Baranyuk and several other senior officers, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine decided to send almost 1500 marines to certain death. This is the cynicism of this operation. Most of the Ukrainian military who broke through survived only thanks to the excellent work of Russian intelligence.
The DPR and Russian forces have taken control of the Mariupol seaport and the Ilyich plant. The crews of foreign ships that were blocked by Ukrainian nationalists are completely evacuated from the seaport. In the Left-Bank district of Mariupol, fighting continues, but almost everything except the 6th microdistrict, is under Russian control.
The Russian Defense Ministry has called on the remaining Ukrainian forces, besieged at a steel plant in Mariupol, to lay down their arms, offering guarantees of life and safety, if they accept the proposal and halt all hostilities starting Sunday morning.
Forcing Ukraine to peace was initially the strongest calculation of our leadership, but the appropriate conclusions were drawn and the military doctrine was completely changed. As a result, this is no longer a special operation, but a full-scale war.
The Russian Armed Forces continue a special military operation in Ukraine. As a result of the strikes, more than 320 Ukrainian servicemen were killed and wounded, 23 armoured vehicles and seven vehicles of various purposes were destroyed.
On April 15, the joint Russian and DPR troops claimed another victory. The Russian Ministry of Defence confirmed that Russian and DPR troops took control over the Illich Iron and Steel Plant in the city of Mariupol, which was one of the main hotspots of AFU resistance in the city.
High precision long-range air launched weapons destroyed the production buildings of the armored plant in Kyiv and the workshop for the repair of military equipment in Nikolaev.
Today’s night and day are very hot. We are advancing. Only here you really understand what it was like for our grandfathers and great-grandfathers during the Second World War.
“I often get these questions, can’t we hurry it up?’ We can. But it depends on the intensity of hostilities and the intensity of hostilities is directly related to casualties,” said President Putin.
The Russian Ministry of Defense notes that the number of sabotage and shelling against Russian targets has increased, which will lead to a tough response if this trend continues. Attacks will be made on decision making centers, including in Kyiv, which the Russia has refrained from doing.
The Russian military found a drone with liquid containers and sprayers on the territory of one of the military units abandoned by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, RT reports. “Presumably, these aircraft could be used to spray poisonous substances to harm both the Russian Armed Forces and the civilian population and farmland,” one of the servicemen told RT.

During the night in the village of ZVONETSKOYE, Dnepropetrovsk region, high-precision sea-based missiles destroyed the headquarters and base of the nationalist battalion “Dnepr”, where reinforcements from foreign mercenaries arrived the other day.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation spoke about another unsuccessful attempt for the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to save the commanders of the Ukrainian Nazis and foreign mercenaries.
Russia has the technical ability to determine where the train station strike came from, and “intelligence will tell who pressed this start button.” The Ministry of Defense has already established that the strike was carried out by a missile division of the Ukrainian armed forces from the area of the settlement of Dobropolye, 45 kilometers southwest of the Kramatorsk.
Despite fierce resistance of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and their heavily fortified positions in the region, the DPR, LPR Armies supported by Russian forces continue to slowly advance in different directions, claiming victories on a daily basis. On April 7, the Russian MoD said that units of the Russian armed forces blockaded the town of Ugledar, where the mop-up operation was launched.
As of April 7, out of 14 000 soldiers of the AFU, including servicemen of the Azov regiment, besieged in Mariupol a month ago, around three thousand are still fighting. The center of the city and almost all administrative buildings have come under the control of Russian and DPR troops.
Sputnik: Ukraine’s military hit the train station from Dobropilya settlement, located 45 kilometers away with Tochka-U ballistic missiles, said the Russian MoD, and the purpose of Kiev’s attack on the Kramatorsk railway station was to disrupt mass evacuation of the human shield residents.
According to the official representative of the military department, Igor Konashenkov, on the evening of Monday, April 4, a long-range sea-based cruise missile attack destroyed the Training Center for Ukrainian Special Operations Forces near the city of Ochakiv, which was used for basing foreign mercenaries.
Sergei Lavrov recalled that Russian troops completely withdrew from Bucha on March 30, and on March 31 the mayor of the city solemnly said that everything was in order. However, Kiev is making different claims.
Who is goint to investigate NATO's possible involvement in fake war propaganda after its demonstrated love for any report coming out of Kiev that will create military support?
