Russia demands that US stop supplying arms to Ukraine − envoy
Russian Ambassador to the US noted that the US has been "striving to push the stakes up and escalate the situation"
MOSCOW, April 25. /TASS/. Moscow has sent Washington a note demanding that the US stop supplying weapons to Kiev, Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov told the Rossiya-24 TV channel.
"Eight hundred million dollars - this is how much <...> [worth] of weapons will be sent to Kiev from Washington. That’s a huge amount, and that does not contribute to any search for a diplomatic solution, or any settlement. Did we file a note? Yes, we stressed that the US plying Ukraine with weapons was unacceptable, and we demanded that these kinds of practices be stopped," he said.
The US has been "striving to push the stakes up and escalate the situation," Antonov said. "The goal is to prevent Russia, as [American] senators have been saying openly, from standing firm on its feet, and to bar Russia’s interests from being respected or Russia’s voice from being heard," the diplomat said.

Ukrainians are starting to question their government‘s narrative
People are starting to compare the situation of Kherson and Mariupol.
There was no SBU in Kherson and the city quickly came under the control of the Russian Federation. Now life is already getting better there, people write that the Russians are collecting lists for the payment of social benefits and pensions, enterprises have partially started to work in some places, almost everything is available in stores.
Mariupol, ghost town. Everything has been destroyed
People are wondering if it would be more profitable to surrender the cities, saving them from complete destruction, if Russia still achieves its goal, and we cannot do anything against it (the promised de-blockade of Mariupol does not and will not happen). At the same time, people will save their lives, their property, and cities their beauty, while we will avoid many tragedies.
Such thoughts will intensify with every day of the Ukrainian crisis. So far, the authorities have made sweet promises, making ostentatious PR steps, but in reality the problems have not been resolved. Sooner or later, this can play very strongly against Kiev.

As was said yesterday, the cancellation of a ground assault does not mean an end to the strikes against Azovstal. Today, they happily continued, as war correspondents report from the field. Aviation and Artillery is active.









Russian Armed Forces offer militants in Mariupol to surrender - Defense Ministry
The lives of all those who lay down their arms will be spared, Mikhail Mizintsev, chief of Russia’s National Defense Management Center, said
MOSCOW, April 17./TASS/. The Russian Armed Forces offer the militants from the nationalist battalions and foreign mercenaries blocked in Mariupol to end hostilities and lay down arms from 06:00 Moscow time on Sunday, April 17, their lives will be spared, Mikhail Mizintsev, chief of Russia’s National Defense Management Center, said on Saturday.

"Given the catastrophic situation at the Azovstal iron and steel works, and out of purely humane principles, the Russian Armed Forces offer the militants from nationalist battalions and foreign mercenaries to end hostilities and lay down arms from 06:00 Moscow time on April 17, 2022. The lives of all those who lay down their arms will be spared," the statement said.

The following algorithm is suggested - from 05:00, a constant communication is established between the Russian and Ukrainian sides to exchange information. A ceasefire is announced from 05:30 Moscow time. At 06:00, the sides raise flags - red flags from the Russian side and white flags along the whole perimeter of the plant by the Ukrainian side.

Besides, the fact of readiness for the ceasefire by the sides is confirmed through all channels of communication. From 06:00 to 13:00 - all without exception Ukrainian armed units and foreign mercenaries leave without any weapons or ammunition whatsoever.

The subject matter of radio communications of units of nationalists and mercenaries blocked at Azovstal testifies to their hopeless situation. They demand that the official Kiev give them permission to surrender, but in reply they are threatened with executions, Mikhail Mizintsev stressed.

"Within April 16, 2022, a sharp increase was recorded in the intensity of radio communications of militants from nationalist units and foreign mercenaries blocked in Mariupol at the Azovstal metallurgical plant," he reported. "The content of radio interceptions (there were 367 of them alone in the past 24 hours) indicates that the militants offering resistance are in a hopeless situation, practically without food and water. They urge permission to lay down arms and surrender from the Kiev authorities. Meanwhile, representatives of the Kiev authorities categorically forbid them to do this and threaten with subsequent executions under the ‘wartime’ conditions," the statement said.
モスクワ 4月17日/タス/. ロシア国防管理センターのミハイル・ミジンツェフ主任は土曜日、マリウポリに封鎖された民族主義大隊の過激派と外国人傭兵に対し、モスクワ時間4月17日(日)6時から敵対行為を終了して武器を置くよう申し出れば、彼らの命は救われると述べました。



また、あらゆる通信手段を通じ、停戦の準備が整っていることが確認されている。6 時から 13 時まで、ウクライナの武装部隊と外国の傭兵は例外なく、武器や弾薬を一切持たずに退去する。


"2022年4月16日の内に、マリウポルのアゾフスタル冶金工場で封鎖された民族主義部隊の過激派と外国人傭兵の無線通信の強度が急激に上昇したことが記録された "と彼は報告している。「無線傍受の内容(過去24時間だけで367件)から、抵抗を申し出ている武装勢力は絶望的な状況にあり、実質的に食料も水もない状態であることがわかる。彼らは、キエフ当局から武器を置いて降伏する許可を得るよう求めている。一方、キエフ当局の代表者は、彼らにこれを断固として禁じ、『戦時』条件下でのその後の処刑で脅している」と声明は述べている。


All those who lay down arms at Azovstal and surrender on Sunday are guaranted life, the Russian Ministry of Defense said.
Earlier in the week, 1,160 Ukrainian soldiers, including 176 officers, of the 36th Marine Brigade surrendered in Mariupol. The Russian Defense Ministry said it was ready to allow all Ukrainian troops to withdraw through humanitarian corridors and promised to spare Ukrainian nationalists who agree to lay down arms. The Ukrainian side declined the offer.
Mariupol, a coastal city in the breakaway Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) with a population of 450,000, went under the control of Ukrainian troops during the 2014 offensive. On March 7, a senior DPR military said that Russian and DPR forces have surrounded the city and are clearing it of Ukrainian troops, including the neo-Nazi Azov battalion.
Russia launched a military operation last month with the stated goal of putting an end to war crimes committed by Ukrainian troops against civilians during an eight-year offensive against Donbass.
Zelensky Wants to 'Gain Time' While Turning to NATO for Assistance, Russian Lawmaker Says
Volodymyr Zelensky, who recently expressed his alleged readiness to discuss the Crimean issue and Ukraine's refusal to join NATO with Russia, actually wants to buy time, while turning to NATO for military assistance, the chairman of the Russian parliament's lower house, Vyacheslav Volodin, said on Sunday.
Volodin recalled that Zelenskyy had said the same before the talks in Turkey, when Russian forces had almost reached Kiev. According to the Russian lawmaker, Moscow reduced its activity in the area, withdrew its troops, after which a staged provocation in Bucha took place and Kiev refused to honor its obligations.
"Today, the same scenario is being proposed. The reason [for it] is obvious. He [Zelenskyy] wants to gain time while simultaneously turning to NATO for military assistance," Volodin said on Telegram.
Volodin noted that Ukrainian forces have already lost 23,367 people. In addition,1,464 Ukrainian soldiers surrendered during the liberation of Mariupol on Saturday.
Volodin also stressed that Zelenskyy must withdraw Ukrainian troops from the Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics, recognize Russia's sovereignty over Crimea and make a commitment not to join NATO if he really cares about Ukrainian citizens.
