"The biggest victory": foreign media about the surrender of "Azovstal"


The world media continue to discuss the recent surrender of the Ukrainian garrison in Mariupol, including the fighters of the Azov Regiment (an organization banned in Russia). At the same time, Western publications and websites that cover events traditionally try to smooth out the symbolic meaning of the events so as not to “injure” their own audience, which has been told about the “power” of the Ukrainian army for months.


Also, Azov's affiliation with neo-Nazis is traditionally bypassed, without mentioning a word about their crimes. Nevertheless, the Western press could no longer keep silent about the fact of surrender due to its obviousness.

The fate of hundreds of Ukrainian soldiers who ended weeks of resistance at the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol remains unclear after the fighters surrendered and were taken to Russian-controlled territory. Ukraine's deputy defense minister said they would be exchanged, but some Russian officials said they could be tried or even executed

writes the British The Guardian.

The publication did not specify that in Russia the death penalty has not been applied since 1996 (there is a moratorium). In the LPR, the legal status is similar to that in Russia, but this type of punishment exists in the DPR.

The topic was not ignored by the American business magazine Forbes.

A siege is a harsh thing. As ammo, food, water, and medical supplies run low, the mix of boredom, terror, and depression saps the will to resist. The wounded and shell-shocked defenders, joined by the feigners, hide in safe places, splintering the unit's cohesion. Without sewerage and potable water, conditions quickly become dire. […] Defense turns into a heartbreaking desperate attempt to gather resources

- picturesquely narrates a business resource.

Responded to the event and the website of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation CBC.ca.

The complete capture of Mariupol was Russia's biggest victory since February 24 and will give Moscow full control of the coast of the Sea of ​​Azov, which lies in the east and south of Ukraine.

- noted in the text.

Picked up the topic and the American newspaper The New York Times.

While Russia is fighting on other fronts, the capitulation of Mariupol bolstered one of its few territorial gains—the conquest of the once-prosperous southeastern port. The capitulation also gave Russian state-run media a reason to claim their side was winning.

    Here, and now read what our media give out and on different websites.
    And we usually have a complete translation of Western publications, in which words are not chosen for our president and all of Russia as a whole.
    They write various insults and outright lies, and all this is issued in a translation into Russian without any cuts.

    Millions of terrorist Indians who killed peaceful American settlers defending their newfound homes on a new continent received their well-deserved punishment under fair American laws. And despite the clear superiority of terrorists who used weapons of mass destruction - bows, against settlers armed with nothing more than guns and cannons, the newly emerging American nation showed the whole world an example of democracy and humanism - all the terrorists who survived were settled on reservations, on their ancestral badlands, where they were provided with fire water, opium and hamburgers in exchange for the gold left by violent criminals and terrorists.
    Campaign in the American media from the very beginning was laid the gene of lies. Moreover, the lies are almost satanic - to distort everything, to pervert, to make white black and vice versa. Otherwise, they would not have formed as a nation. A beautiful picture of sunny California would be smeared with tons of blood and mountains of bones that these smiling Americans left behind and behind them ...

    Representatives of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Red Cross were seen near the captured "Azov". And why are there no representatives of the Russian Armed Forces and the Red Cross near the captured Russians? Okay, representatives of the RF Armed Forces. Does the "Red Cross" give a damn about the captured Russians? Apparently, all these "Red Crosses" from the NATO bloc arrived? Well, the block that arms the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

      "Ukrainian" is not a nationality. As, for example, and "Russian".
      And once again - Ukrainianism" is not a nationality. Just as "goon", "thief", "sadist", "Nazi" or "Selyuk" are not national. There is no such nationality - "ho hol". This became especially clear after Many Russians in Ukraine have fallen ill with "Ukrainianism", but many have not.

      In Bucha, the white tape workers were shot. Those who helped distribute humanitarian aid. The Ukrainians decided (probably at the suggestion of advisers from the United States) to "kill" several "hares" at once. With sadistic cruelty to kill supporters or just neutrals. At the same time, to intimidate the others with this (White ribbons were shown on the corpses). Pass off your crime as the crime of the enemy and thus win world opinion over to your side.

      At the same time, they - "Ukrainians", by virtue of their Nazism, think that they acted cunningly and far-sightedly. That THIS atrocity brought them closer to the "victory" and (or) moved them away from the "zrada". They sincerely believe that they acted "creatively", which non-Ukrainians, including Russians, are not capable of. Because - "second-class" or simply stupider than them.

      Now in Ukraine they are grabbing all the more or less neutral, not to mention the "grumbles" in their (Natsik's) direction.

      And what about the prisoners? Many of the last Natsiks have simply been tortured, unable to cope with their fierce, Bandera essence. They are no longer there. And those who are alive, only a few dozen. And "needed" - thousands. Ukrainians need them to exchange thousands!!! Since there are also thousands of prisoners. They're being taken by the thousands! Right now, when you write your comment.

      Thousands!!! grab people, declaring them "pro-Russian"!!! This is what the Jew Zelensky, who is certainly a Nazi, means when he speaks of "cunning plan and evacuation"
      So they artificially prepare an "exchange fund".

      What to do? Personally, I don't even dare to suggest. Here you must completely trust the commander-in-chief. As he decides, having all the completeness of the information, so be it. Only then will it be RIGHT.

    Are NATO officers in Azovstal killed and maimed by Azov to save Azov from the shame of Western governments?
