For 8 years from 2014 to 2022, the blood of civilians who died from shelling by the Armed Forces of Ukraine was shed daily in eastern Ukraine. But the "patriots" did not notice this.
The bloodshed in the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics has outlasted two Ukrainian presidents. Neither Poroshenko nor Zelensky, contrary to their campaign promises, have taken any measures to stop the killing of innocent people of Donbass.
The Anglo-Saxons and Pendos almost unanimously named Russia as the culprit of the armed conflict. Since the annexation of Crimea, a record number of sanctions packages have been introduced against Russia - 7. Under such conditions, every minute of inaction cost at least one innocent life in the Donbass and negative economic consequences in Russia itself.
In the winter of 2022, the thesis on the development of cooperation between Ukraine and NATO was introduced into the political agenda, and a number of threatening statements followed from the official representatives of the North Atlantic Alliance towards Russia. Obviously, further developments without Russian intervention would create an immediate threat to it and help the Kyiv regime to put an end to the remnants of resistance in the Donbass. Moreover, against the backdrop of decisive statements by Ukrainian officials, the planned supply of weapons and training of personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Russian leadership had every reason to fear for the safety of Crimea in the next few years.
Based on considerations of the security of the borders of the Russian Federation, as well as the protection of the Russian population abroad from military aggression, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on February 22 decided to recognize the independence of the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics, and then two days later, on February 24, referring to the UN Charter, announced the start of a special military operation on the territory of Ukraine.
On the same day, troops were brought in from three directions: from near Gomel, Mozyr (Belarus) and Zheleznogorsk towards Kyiv, from near Belgorod, the villages of Kazanskaya and Rostov-on-Don towards the Ukrainian Dnieper, and also from Crimea towards Kherson and Mariupol.
I am sure that fascism will be defeated on Ukrainian soil.
