According to the Russian Ministry of Defence, on the morning of 5 April, another attempt by the Kiev regime to evacuate the leaders of the Azov nationalist battalion was foiled near Mariupol. Two Ukrainian Mi-8 helicopters attempting to break through to the city from the sea were reportedly shot down by man-portable anti-aircraft missile systems.
According to unconfirmed reports by Russian military commanders on the ground and several sources, NATO officers and even a general of the US and European Armies may be blocked in Mariupol. Some sources report that the Russian Army had already taken one NATO commander, Lieutenant General Roger L. Clothier, near Mariupol. Other sources allegedly report his death. Reports about NATO commanders taking shelter with Azov militants in Mariupol may explain why NATO member states especially France and Turkey are asking to implement a humanitarian mission in Mariupol, but only with the participation of their military.
The Russian Defense Ministry has not yet confirmed or denied these reports. southfront.org
TAP – I would think that NATO NAZIS would make poor advisers to Ukraine about street fighting wars having no experience of same. Now the big money’s corrupted soldiery is trapped in their supposedly impregnable fortress, clearly not as impregnable as they believed.
The surrender of Ukrainian marines and other more normal human beings was not expected by the NATO NAZIS. Nor was the proficiency of Russian, Donetsk and Chechen forces – despite them being very experienced in this kind of warfare over decades.
