At the Beijing Olympics, which ended yesterday, on February 18, our hockey players defeated the Swedes in the semi-final in a tough shootout match and reached the final, where the Finns were already waiting for them. The decisive 8th bullet was scored by the youngest in the national team, 20-year-old Arseniy Gritsyuk.
I don't think Putin will watch hockey today
- this is how the presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov commented on this event.
And indeed, it must be admitted that on February 18, Putin was no longer up to hockey. In the morning, real hostilities began on the line of contact between the DPR and LPR corps and units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
In the direction of Gorlovka, the infantry of the Armed Forces of Ukraine breaks through! There is an infantry shooting battle! In the area of the village Panteleymonovka (10 km south of Gorlovka) parts of the DPR have already entered into contact. Residents in basements, children from school No. 19 are being evacuated. In the morning, at about 10:20 Moscow time, the Armed Forces of Ukraine from Chapaev fired on the outskirts of Pervomaisk. Having received an order to respond to the Ukronazis, the NAF gave an answer on the positions of the UAF, and they fell silent for a while. But after a short lull, they opened fire again... But in the village of Novozvanovka in the territory of the Lugansk region controlled by Kiev. Judging by the report of our insiders, the Armed Forces of Ukraine covered Novozvanovka with 120 mm mortars, about 30-40 minutes flew into the settlement. But, as usual, the ukrovoyaks decided to define their illness as a feat - and sent TV workers to the village to film the consequences of the “Russian raid”. Tomorrow we expect a video with stuffing on Ukrainian TV.
These are messages from the field. As you can see, Biden leaves us no chance not to intervene, in order to later blame the Russian Federation in full, with all the ensuing consequences. How can the Kremlin avoid such a development of events? Zelensky, it seems, Biden has already bent. The plan “A” proposed by us (the agreement) is collapsing before our eyes. Biden turned on his plan "C" and systematically twists the noose around Moscow's neck. At the same time, Putin is suspiciously calm. I noticed this even at his press conference with German Chancellor Scholz, where he said his sacramental phrase: "Everything is going according to plan!". According to his plan! I haven't seen Putin so calm and confident for a long time. It seems that the proposed plan "B" of the GDP, has entered its final stage.
Finnish President Sauli Niinistö, who has long maintained personal informal relations with Putin, recently shared his observations that about 7 months ago, Putin somehow drastically changed the style of his usual communication with him, becoming extremely laconic, extremely collected and mobilized. It is as if he has made some very important decision for himself and is now gathering all his strength into a fist to implement it. Different people behave differently in similar situations. Someone, in conditions of uncertainty and multitasking, gathers, mobilizing all reserves, concentrating all resources into a single fist, and someone becomes limp, like a sourdough, and falls into prostration, followed by a stupor. The first ones include Boris Yeltsin (no matter how anyone treats him here) and Old Man Lukashenko, the second ones are Vegetable-Yanukovych, who 8 years ago during the coup d'état got sour and "floated", eventually handing over his country to be torn to pieces by pro-American bastards.
It must be admitted that the actions of the opposing side are easily predictable, if not obvious, I am sure that Putin has prepared his counterplan C1 for this plan “C” of Biden. The Americans have never been distinguished by invention and flight of fancy, the variety of tactical thought is definitely not their forte. They always follow the pattern, if it worked once, then why won't it work again? Maybe this scheme works with someone else, but here they have to deal with the unpredictable Putin. What he will throw out this time, no one knows. This is what scares our “partners”.
The fact that they did not take him by surprise with their actions is suggested by several factors at once. I will present them to you sequentially so that some especially advanced comrades do not accuse me of having driven you some kind of bullshit before, while they are definitely privy to the Kremlin’s plans (I’m over such unfortunate predictors I laugh loudly and homeric, thank God, no one knows the plans of the Kremlin). But even a standing clock shows the exact time twice a day, which the false prophets count on. I'm not trying to guess, I'm analyzing. Let's move on to the facts.
Concentration of forces in the NPM
The first thing that bothered me. On December 30 last year, the Associated Press, citing a Pentagon spokesman, reported that US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin ordered the American strike aircraft carrier group led by the aircraft carrier Harry Truman to be left in the Mediterranean Sea due to the situation around Ukraine. According to the agency, this happened "against the backdrop of concerns about the accumulation of thousands of Russian troops near the border with Ukraine." The aircraft carrier, as part of a strike group of five US Navy ships, was heading for the Middle East, however, according to a Defense Department spokesman, plans changed and it turned around a few nautical miles short of the Suez Canal. “This is necessary in order to reassure US allies and partners in the region,” the source said. As a result, the carrier group, instead of basking now off the coast of the Red Sea, is “freezing” its asses in the “cold” waters of the Ionian Sea somewhere between Greece and Italy in the area of responsibility of the 6th Fleet of the US Navy. In addition to the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman, the group includes the guided missile cruiser USS San Jacinto, the destroyers USS Bainbridge, USS Cole, USS Gravely, USS Jason Dunham, and the Norwegian frigate Fridtjof.
The second point that alerted. In the same place in the SPM, in addition to the above-mentioned AUG, there were two more Allied AUGs, one French, led by the aircraft carrier R-91 Charles de Gaulle, and another Italian, led by the flagship of the Italian Navy, the aircraft carrier S-550 Cavour. All of them gathered there to participate in the Clemenceau-2022 mission. The order of the French flagship includes the Horizon-class destroyer D-620 Forbin, two FREMM-class frigates D-656 Alsace and D-651 Normandie, the Durance-class support vessel Marne (sea tanker) and an unnamed multi-purpose nuclear submarine ( MPLATRK) of the Rubis type. At various stages of the mission, the Charles de Gaulle will be joined by the American destroyer DDG-71 USS Ross of the Arleigh Burke class, the Spanish frigate F-102 Almirante Juan de Borbón of the Alvaro de Bazan class, as well as the Greek submarine and frigate of the Ellie class. . During the exercise, the French sailors will work out interaction with the 5th generation F-35B fighters and E-2D Advanced Hawkeye AWACS carrier-based aircraft. In addition, as the command of the French Navy noted, one of the frigates accompanying the aircraft carrier, as well as several fighters, will be sent to the Black Sea region due to the growing tension (I immediately have a question: what did they forget there?!).
And this is not counting the ships of the 6th Mediterranean Fleet of the US Navy, based in Naples, Gaeta, La Madallena, La Spezia, Taranto, Brindisi, Augusto and Rota with the flagship landing / combined command ship LCC-20 USS Mount Whitney. In addition to the flagship, the 6th Fleet on a rotational basis constantly includes 1-2 nuclear-powered aircraft carriers with a joint air wing of 175 aircraft, 4 Ticonderoga-class missile cruisers, 15 Arleigh Burke-class URO destroyers, 5 Wasp-class amphibious assault ships , 4 Virginia-class nuclear submarines, not counting support vessels, tankers, tugs, rescue, auxiliary and other vessels. If necessary, this entire armada of aircraft from aircraft carriers will easily and naturally move to NATO air force ground bases in Turkey, Italy and Greece, from where they can nightmare the entire territory of Ukraine on the “long arm” principle, using navigation and the entire maritime infrastructure of the fleet. It is worth noting that it is the 6th Fleet that is responsible for the ground component of the American missile defense systems deployed in Europe. The ships are equipped with the Aegis combat multifunctional information and control system integrated into the missile defense structure, thanks to which they are able to significantly reduce the power of retaliatory missile strikes from Russia. The Americans have already demonstrated the effectiveness of this system when, in February 2008, they shot down their old reconnaissance satellite weighing 5 tons at an altitude of almost 250 km.
Agree that the water area of the NPM is simply teeming with NATO ships, which, on the eve of future events in Ukraine, do not at all inspire us with optimism. In order to neutralize this threat for the first time in the history of the USSR and the Russian Federation, an unprecedented power grouping of the Russian Navy was assembled in the SPM, which includes three project 1164 Atlant missile cruisers, nicknamed "aircraft carrier killers", two of which are the flagships of their fleets (RK "Moscow" - Black Sea Fleet, RK "Varyag" - Pacific Fleet, and RK "Marshal Ustinov" is simply inferior in this indicator to the flagship of the Northern Fleet TARK "Peter the Great", which remained on the basis of the Northern Fleet); two large anti-submarine ships - BOD "Admiral Kulakov" (SF) and BOD "Admiral Tributs" (TOF), both projects 1155, and four URO frigates - a heavy frigate of project 22350 "Admiral Kasatonov" (SF) and three light frigates with the Admiral's Black Sea Fleet series of project 11356R - "Admiral Grigorovich", "Admiral Makarov" and "Admiral Essen". The missile cruisers are equipped with the most powerful P-1000 Vulkan anti-ship missiles (16 launchers each), the rest of the ships of the group are also carriers of missile weapons, including subsonic winged Caliber, supersonic Onyx anti-ship missiles and hypersonic winged Zircons. Two air defense / anti-aircraft defense corvettes of project 20380 "Resistant" and "Savvy" (now passing Gibraltar) are also going there from the Baltic, also armed to the very teeth with anti-submarine torpedo and missile anti-ship and anti-aircraft weapons (the most armed ships in their class). In addition, on February 15, two Tu-22M3 strategic long-range bombers with X-22 supersonic cruise anti-ship missiles on board and a flight of MiG-31K high-altitude all-weather long-range fighter-interceptors equipped with hypersonic aviation systems "Dagger" (one more, this time hypersonic "aircraft carrier killers").
The armada of NATO ships loitering in the SPM immediately felt uncomfortable. The flagship of the US 6th Fleet LCC-20 USS Mount Whitney immediately fled from there (it’s understandable, there are only two such ships in the US Navy, why substitute it once again?), however, it was immediately replaced by the multi-purpose nuclear submarine SSGN 729 Georgia of the type “ Ohio" with 154 winged "Tomahawks" on board. But in principle, there are enough of our submarines there (six brand new diesel-electric submarines of project 636.3 "Varshavyanka" of the Black Sea Fleet, armed with winged "Caliber"). And their dense subsonic Tomahawks run the risk of becoming easy prey for our S-300s and S-400s deployed around the entire perimeter of Nezalezhnaya (you are welcome, we are waiting for you!).
As you can see, Sergei Kuzhugetovich thoroughly prepared for the meeting. I must say that all this preparation was reminiscent of a real military operation. Judge for yourself, the Pacific squadron led by the Varyag RK, which, in addition to it, also included the Admiral Tributs BOD and the large sea tanker Boris Butoma, after the CHIRU exercises they carried out on January 18-22 in the Gulf of Oman jointly with the Iranian Navy and China -2022 was supposed to pay an official visit to the Seychelles on the occasion of the 105th anniversary of the entry of the Russian armored cruiser Varyag of the same name (the one that does not surrender to the enemy) to the port of Victoria of this island state, but instead of the Indian Ocean, she suddenly ended up in the Mediterranean Sea. This is despite the fact that the official visit of the Varyag to the Seychelles was announced back in November 2021. It was the first surprise from Sergei Kuzhugetovich. The second surprise happened when the North Sea squadron led by the Marshal Ustinov missile launcher, as well as the Vice-Admiral Kulakov BOD, the carrier of the hypersonic Zircons, the heavy frigate Admiral Kasatonov, and the medium sea tanker Vyazma accompanying them, which left on 22 January from Severomorsk to conduct pre-scheduled missile firing in the British Isles from February 5 to 8, unexpectedly changed the route and instead of firing in the cold waters of the Irish Sea, suddenly, to the surprise of many, surfaced in full force in the hot waters of the Mediterranean, where even without them to push through there was nowhere. Moreover, in pursuit of them in the direction of Gibraltar, a squadron of the Baltic Fleet, consisting of two air defense / anti-aircraft defense attack corvettes Stoykiy and Soobrazitelny, also rushed towards them.
By this, Sergei Kuzhugetovich politely hinted to our “partners” so that they would not twitch once again when the Supreme Commander begins to implement his plan “B”, which everyone has heard about, but still does not know what it will consist of. By the end of this story, you will finally know about him. Putin again surprised everyone. As they say, if you want to hide something, put it in the most visible place. Putin and put. For three months we beat around the bush, looking in dark corners - where did Putin hide his terrible plan "B"? While all this time he lay before our eyes. Personally, I was embarrassed that it was the old man Joe who pointed to him, you see, this is not the comrade who can be trusted. But I will not get ahead of myself, you will learn about Putin's plan "B" today. Only a regular client of Alzheimer's, part-time acting president of America, could believe in this, but he had his own reasons for this, which were radically at odds with ours. And Putin's task was precisely to implement his plan "B", while at the same time localizing and minimizing the consequences of the counter-plan "B1" of grandfather Joe.
Putin's terrible plan "B"
It was for the implementation of plan "B" that a joint transatlantic transition of a group of large landing ships of the Northern and Baltic fleets from the Varangians to the Greeks was carried out, which we all watched with enthusiasm for 1,5 months. Now it becomes clear what they were taking to Syria. We puzzled over what could be in the holds of six BDK loaded to the eyeballs? Iskanders? Marines? No, everything turned out to be much easier. There was ammunition for our Syrian group, missiles, including hypersonic "Daggers" and supersonic X-32 "Storms" and other necessary weapons. The fact is that with the beginning of the implementation of plan "B", the Turkish straits of the Bosporus and the Dardanelles could be closed to us, as well as Gibraltar, could they not break through them with a fight? In order not to put our group in the SAR on a starvation ration, Putin created a strategic reserve. It is for this reason that we could not pull off our deterrence operation in Syria, for a ground operation we do not have enough logistical and escalation capabilities there. And the effect of it, I think, few of you would be shocked. Well, we would have shaken out the American Rangers from the last province they occupied in Syria, and so what? This will not scare Grandpa Joe. Unpleasant, but not fatal.
For the same reason, the simultaneous strategic exercises of our entire air, sea and land-based nuclear triad, unparalleled in their scale, conducted ahead of schedule on February 19 this year, on which I had such high hopes, could not scare our enemy too much. Well, we shot with Iskanders, Yars, Poplars, Calibers, Blue, Mace, Daggers and Zircons, so what? Scary, but not deadly for our enemies. They are sure that we will definitely not shoot at them with our most terrible missiles in the world, as well as drown their holey troughs in the SPM. Nuclear weapons bury, not scare. What then? That's when Plan B comes into play.
22.02. exactly at 4 o'clock, Kiev was bombed, we were informed that the war had begun
What was it? You will, of course, laugh, but Putin's most unpleasant and long-awaited response for Biden would be the disposal of Ukraine as an anti-Russian project. That was the plan "B". And the task of the GDP was only to minimize its consequences for the Russian Federation. The fact that the Russian army will bury the Kiev regime in a matter of hours, no one, even the Ukrainian army itself, doubts. How to avoid the consequences in the form of sanctions, trade embargoes and the insane population, which will inevitably get us to work? That's what Putin's head ached about. But it was also impossible to drag on with this regime that had lost its shores. Putin made a decision for himself, and all this time he deliberately walked towards it.
Everyone who knows Putin well knows that he doesn't say anything just like that. Psaki, Biden, Zelensky, even Lukashenka's dad can chat something extra, but not Putin! Therefore, when at a press conference with Scholz he suddenly mentioned the genocide of the people of Donbass, which was unleashed by the Kiev regime, I understood that evidence was being prepared for accusations of crimes against humanity. Therefore, when a terrible explosion thundered on the territory of the LPR on the night of February 19, which local eyewitnesses described as an undermining of the Ukrainian DRG of the Druzhba gas pipeline, I just laughed. And about the Ukrainian DRG, and about the "Friendship". I am sure that our specialists were working, they also blew up the UAZ car of the head of the NM of the DPR in Donetsk. Note that in both cases, no one was hurt, although the car was blown up in broad daylight on a busy street (I also thought that this is the whole head of the Armed Forces of the DPR driving a UAZ, is there really no better car? But why? To undermine the most it will be! ). But there is already a picture for the media. The bloody Kiev regime has completely lost its shores!
By the way, there is no Druzhba gas pipeline, there is an oil pipeline of the same name, but no one blew it up, because it runs in a different place. As well as the Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhgorod gas pipeline, which everyone thought about. They blew up a local main high-pressure gas pipe. There is a lot of noise, the consequences have already been eliminated. But I have no reason to blame the Kremlin for this. We learn from our enemies. Now let them prove that they are not camels! And Putin will go all the way. The point of no return has already been passed. The days of the Kiev regime are numbered. The countdown has begun. You can not even doubt that Putin will multiply it by zero. Everything goes according to plan. according to the GDP plan. Evacuation of the civilian population - there too. Pay attention to how organized it was! Prepared in advance. Everything was already ready: both in the LDNR and in the Russian Federation.
By the way, the exercises in Belarus have already ended, as well as the Olympics in Beijing. We are waiting for Comrade's speech. Si. For some reason, I won't be at all surprised if, after the Paralympics, which finishes on March 13, he announces the transfer of Taiwan under Chinese jurisdiction. I wonder what Grandpa Joe will say to this, who at that time will gather the European and other concerned public under the banner of the fight against the Kremlin regime that has lost its shores? By the way, I'm not sure that many people will gather under these banners. Naturally, all Anglo-Saxon friends, Canadians, British, Dutch and other Poles with the Balts will be there, but there may not be French and Germans at all (after all, it was not in vain that Putin held talks with Macron and Scholz in the midst of the coronavirus). Only mentally disabled, inhibited residents of Northern Europe and Poles can freeze their asses without gas (and the latter still dream of warming up on this, using their LNG terminal in Swinoujscie, when the rest of Europe will be sitting without pipe Russian gas), while the Germans and the French with the Italians, Austrians and other Hungarians and Slovaks who joined them have a completely different attitude to this, and I'm not at all sure that Grandpa Joe can convince them. This is the other most important task of Plan B - the fragmentation of Europe and the introduction of a split in its monolithic ranks (and it is very difficult to unite people who want to eat with fairy tales about the benefits of curative fasting).
By the way, it was no longer possible to delay further with the beginning of the implementation of Plan B. The exercises in Belarus ended on February 20, and it was not possible from a purely military point of view to keep people in such weather in unsuitable conditions for this at the training grounds. Those who served in the army will understand this - sitting with wet feet in trenches and dugouts, or in the field at temperatures of 0 ... +/-5 * C is not ice at all. It is necessary either to take them to places of permanent deployment, or into battle. But the Pacific Marines were not transferred from the Far East to Belarus in order to return them back when the task of the decade had not been solved. The checker is brought in, it is easier to chop than to put in a sheath.
The trigger for the start of the operation will be the release to the sea of all 12 large landing ships of the Northern, Pacific and Black Sea fleets, now grouped in the Black Sea Fleet base. Each of them takes on board up to 340 Marines, not counting equipment (this is a battalion). In total, we have 12 battalion tactical groups that can land along the entire coast of the Black and Azov Seas, which are now closed to everyone for the duration of the exercises. Near Berdyansk, Mariupol and Kherson, there are just suitable places for this, where the depth does not exceed 3-4 meters, which is necessary so that the BDK can throw back its ramp and land troops. The entire grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is now concentrated near the Donbass. I think the appearance of Russian marines in their rear will be a pleasant surprise for them. It was for this that six large landing ships from the north made their unprecedented transition from the Varangians to the Greeks. When they leave the Black Sea Fleet base, they will have exactly five days to either carry out what I said above, or to nightmare Zelensky even by the fact of their presence in the 12-mile zone and force him to agree to all Putin's conditions. I hope there are no people here who believe that Putin is going to fight with Ukraine. The highest aerobatics to achieve his goal without a single shot (as he did in the Crimea 8 years ago).
To all who disagree with me, I suggest simply putting yourself in Putin's place. Well, you conquered Ukraine, then what? What to do with its brainless population, which believes that it is you who are to blame for all their troubles? After all, this is what they were inspired by all these eight years. It is Putin who is to blame for the fact that they are now washing toilet bowls in lace panties in Poland, instead of traveling in them to Vienna and other operas. How can I convince them otherwise? And you still have to feed them! Well, why is Putin such happiness?! And answer me another very important question: why did he marinate the Donbass for all these eight years, so that later he could just take it and recognize it, putting a trailer around his neck and the rest of Ukraine with its misguided, delusional population?
Putin's task is to use methods of intimidation to force the leadership of Kiev, which still does not believe that Putin will go on the offensive, and does not want to aggravate itself, to compromise with Moscow. And here we have to use the well-known chess rule, which says that the threat is worse than its execution. In this game, Putin plays white, and he imposes his game on the blacks, for whom Biden plays. The opening has already been played, it remains for White, now the game has moved into the middlegame, the endgame is still far away, but Putin has the initiative, and only he decides which piece to use for the final victory.
While he moved the pawns (BDK from the south). Three of them - BDK "Saratov" (project 1171), BDK "Novocherkassk" and BDK "Caesar Kunikov" (both project 775) accompanied by RTOs "Naberezhnye Chelny" (project 12411), MPK "Povorino" (project 1124M), patrol ship "Pavel Derzhavin" (project 22160) and a group of boats have already entered the Sea of Azov. The zone is closed for exercises from 0:00 on February 21 to 23:59 Moscow time on February 26. During this period, everything will happen. Either Zelensky and K * will see the landing in their southern underbelly, or there will be such a harsh imitation that everyone will screw up. But the 8-year nightmare of Donbass will end there. And what future awaits Ukraine and its misguided population, we will see in the next 20 days. Putin's task is to bring this aircraft out of control from the anti-Russian peak at least to neutral, reformatting the Cabinet of Ministers and the Rada. Everything will happen very quickly. The autonomy of the BDK is 15 ... 20 days. After this time, we will all know.
And to make Zelensky think better, Putin in the north marked all his military equipment, concentrated on the borders of the Kursk and Belgorod regions, with identification marks in the form of the letter "Z" enclosed in a square. After all, the equipment is the same, but the LDNR tanks must somehow differ from the tanks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. We will assume that this is Zelensky’s noble trolling (I would also understand the letter “P” - “Putin” in Latin, or “Russians” in Russian, but Putin chose “Z”). Zelensky's hot days are starting. No matter how it gets burned.
Epigraph: “We are actually for peace! But our enemies must understand one simple thing, that we will fight for him so much that there can be no stone left unturned from him! (Vovka from Far Away Kingdom)
As an afterword, I would like to address all my readers. Dear friends, to understand these political chess and not become a banal manipulative victim of TV, I would advise now, right now, all of you, especially people with an unstable and mobile psyche, to watch it less often. The most sophisticated methods of mass propaganda are now being worked out on you, looking at which even Goebbels would have to shoot himself with envy. I will say right away that there will be no war! At least nuclear and World War III. But the struggle for peace has entered the final stage. And before using even conventional methods and means on the battlefield, they create an advantage in the information field. On a real battlefield, Putin has a stunning unprecedented advantage, not even at times, but by several orders of magnitude. And now I'm not talking about the Ukrainian unfortunate army, it is not on the battlefield at all. I'm talking about our existential adversary, sitting across the sea and ocean. At least on land and in strategic arms, we have no equal, but at sea and in the air we are not going to fight with them. And they are going to compete with us on land, with the hands of their Ukrainian wards. But there is one problem - the Ukrainian wards also do not want to die. True, no one asks them about it. They are just pawns for them on this battlefield.
For us, no. For us, Ukraine is a figure, albeit a light one, something like an elephant. Putin's pawns are the same BDKs and missile cruisers that he moves on a conditional chessboard that has become a battlefield for us. There is a very subtle political game going on. The opponents, the USA and the Russian Federation, are not fighting for Ukraine or even for Europe (France and Germany in this game are also just pieces, albeit heavier than Ukraine, something like rooks), the war is for a global redivision of the world. Opponents look to the future with a planning horizon of 30-40-50 years (Ukraine generally has a zero planning horizon, its Kermanychi look only at their feet so as not to fall, but along the way they also try to grab something for themselves, such freaks! ). The states are very reluctant to give up their advantage. But it will have to, because Putin dictates the game from a position of strength, having a positional advantage, keeping in reserve also a queen called China, which has not yet been put into play. The States, naively believing that they were sitting in front of a first-class sucker a la Zelensky, offered the international grandmaster Putin a sacrifice in the form of a piece of Ukraine, having previously dragged all their embassies to Lvov to Western Ukraine, take it, Vova. But Putin does not need Ukraine, or rather a piece of it, the game is not for Ukraine and not even for Eastern Europe, but for the entire globe, but more on that next time. And this time, Vovka from Far Far Away will take all of Ukraine for himself exclusively by conventional means, using heavy figures a la Paris and Berlin for this (neither Poles nor Romanians will break anything here), and will try to do it again without a single shot, because that the threat of the use of force is much more terrible than itself. And I'm not talking here at all about nuclear weapons, which are used only once (the first and last).
On this I say goodbye, I hope everything will end quickly and well. Most of all in this story, I feel sorry for the Donbass, which again pays for all of us.
