The Russian Ministry of Defenсe got original documents of the combat order of the National Guard proving that Ukraine was preparing an offensive operation against Donbass in March of this year.
❗️🇷🇺 Briefing by Russian Defence Ministry spokesperson, Major General Igor Konashenkov
▪️During special military operation, classified documents (https://function.mil.ru/files/morf/dokumentynua.pdf)of the command of the National Guard of Ukraine ended up in the hands of the Russian servicemen. These documents confirm the covert preparation by the Kiev regime of an offensive operation in the Donbass in March 2022.
▪️The Russian Ministry of Defence publishes the original secret order of the commander of the National Guard of Ukraine, Colonel-General Nikolai Balan, dated January 22, 2022.
▪️Order “On organizing the training of a battalion tactical group of the 4th operational brigade to perform combat (special) tasks in the joint forces operation as part of a brigade of the armed forces of Ukraine.”
The document is addressed to the heads of the northern Kiev, southern Odessa and western territorial departments of the National Guard of Ukraine.
▪️The order, brought to the command of the National Guard of Ukraine, explains the plan for preparing one of the shock groups for offensive operations in the so-called “Joint Forces Operation” zone in Donbass.
The document approves the organizational structure of the battalion-tactical group of the 4th operational brigade of the National Guard, the organization of its comprehensive support and reassignment to the 80th separate air assault brigade of Ukraine.
▪️I would like to emphasize that since 2016, this formation of the air assault troops of Ukraine has been trained by American and British instructors under the “NATO standard” training programs in Lvov.
▪️In accordance with the order, the Deputy Commander of the National Guard was tasked with organizing joint combat training of the battalion-tactical group of the National Guard as part of the 80th separate air assault brigade of the armed forces of Ukraine from February 7 to February 28, 2022.
▪️I draw your attention that as many as five paragraphs of 4th paragraph are devoted to the issues of careful selection of personnel, psychologists examination and ensuring their high motivation.
▪️For this reason, the National Guard servicemen are provided with “visual agitation, information and propaganda materials, flags, and printing products.”
▪️The deputy commander of the National Guard for Staffing (personnel) was ordered to organize “an effective system of moral and psychological support for the battalion tactical group of the 4th operational brigade, internal communications of commanders with subordinates, informing.”
▪️At the same time, it is important to provide “an explanation to the personnel of command decisions and the importance of upcoming tasks.”
▪️I draw special attention to the fact that the 12th paragraph of the order prohibits sending National Guard servicemen who showed “unsatisfactory” results of psychological testing according to the criterion of “risk appetite” to the area of joint command training and to the place of “combat special tasks”.
▪️All events of joint combat training of the nationalists are ordered to be completed by February 28 in order to further ensure the fulfillment of combat missions as part of the Ukrainian “Joint Forces Operation” in Donbass.
▪️The document contains the original signatures of the officials of the command of the National Guard of Ukraine responsible for the tasks.
We remember the statements by the leadership of the Kiev regime replicated by the Western media in February, that there were no plans for an armed seizure of Lugansk and Donetsk people’s republics. About their desire to resolve all issues in “political and diplomatic way.”
▪️However, the originals of the secret military documents of the National Guard of Ukraine clearly prove the falsity of these statements.
▪️A special military operation of the Russian Armed Forces, conducted since February 24, thwarted a large-scale offensive operation of Ukrainian troops on the Lugansk and Donetsk people’s republics in March of this year.
▪️Thus, only one question remains unclear so far: how deeply the US leadership and its NATO allies were involved in the planning and preparation of the operation to storm the Donbass by the Ukrainian joint force grouping in early March. All those who care so much about peace in Ukraine today.
They wanted Russia to fire first, so I question this.
After the Azeri victory in Nagorno Karabagh, plus the the military and political orgy support from the Nato the kyiv regime really thought they could grab a victory. they also thought Russia could not dare to attack.
In Georgia, Russia reacted to a Georgian attack, but was still blamed for “invading Georgia”. The American media still repeats this story as though Georgia remained in Russian hands today. The point is, the truth has zero meaning in the propaganda war. So Putin would have gained nothing by waiting to first be attacked.
Just as he is now gaining nothing by showing restraint in order to protect civilian lives. It’s good to do the right thing, but it doesn’t buy him any goodwill in the west. The media carries fake atrocity stories continually.
> It’s good to do the right thing, but it doesn’t
> buy him any goodwill in the west.
Buying goodwill in the westblock is not his foremost task. Buying goodwill is the typical behaviour of the proconsuls in satellite EU.
Goodwill from the US means nothing when their agreements are violated unilaterally for any excuse. US promises are lies. The history is undeniable. Not worth the paper they’re written on.
Winning the war goes without saying. The Ukrainian Nazis are in the meat grinder. How can Russia win the peace? It’s not going to be the tinny tune emanating from the Mighty Wurlitzer full blast ad nauseum, but people’s actual experiences with this war that will make the difference between an Afghanistan and a Chechnya.
Doing the right thing to “buy goodwill” is shallow, and according to the Good Book no better, or worse than, not doing anything. Now doing the right thing just because it is the right thing to do, regardless of what anyone thinks, is true goodness and morality.
Certainly striving to protect civilian lives because protection of innocent lives is a Godly virtue is a right thing to do, or at least try to do, regardless of what anyone thinks about it in either the East or the West.
In The Majestic Koran Allah Mighty and Majestic says that HE checks one power with another in order to maintain Justice and balance the world.
Therefore, if Russia is not playing games with the Satanic West, then Russia will be given victory by Allah, Mighty and Majestic. God-Willing!
I feel protecting the citizens of Donbass was the right thing to do. And their dead and martyrs will be in Paradise, God-Willing, as mentioned by President Putin in one of his speeches about US first strike doctrine.
There are times when tremendous courage is required to do the right thing. Protecting the people of Donbass, just like protecting 2.5 million the Orthodox Christians in Syria from Muslim Zionists (Salafi/Wahhabi goons supplied and funded by Saudi Arabia and other ME Monarchies; trained by Mossad/CIA/MI6 axes), is an act of courage against the odds of suffering economic sanctions (over 5,000 sanctions now and counting; more than Iran, NK, Venezuela, etc).
May Allah Mighty and Majestic give victory to the party that upholds Justice, Ameen!
The Ukraine has been using heavy artillery against the LDNR for nearly eight years. That’s firing first in my book.
Getting Russia to openly intervene on the side of the L/DPR would have been a huge political victory for Kiev and the West. The current round of sanctions and economic war was started by Russia merely recognizing the independence of People’s Republics.
Ukraine may have miscalculated and assumed that the Russian response would be limited to sending troops to support the Donetsk and Lugansk militias. If so, Russia would be faced with the well fortified Ukrainian positions. Instead Russia went straight to Kiev.
As far as I know there are no Russian troops in L/DPR controlled territory. Russian and L/DPR troops have met at or near the old borders of the Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts, which form the self-declared borders of the republics.
I think it is possible that the objective was to force Russia into attacking by preparing a very convincing case that the operation was going to happen. And then if Russia backed down the operation could go forward anyway. But I am not at all sure and you may very well be right.
Could some amount of information about these plans have been deliberately “leaked” to Russia by the US state department, whether via China or through other channels?
Leaked. Russia had known every thing about the Ukraine Gov’t even the ingredients of their last meal.
The plan was to make a quick dash to capture and seal the border, allowing the pending NATO Accession Treaty to be signed. The body of the rebel zones could then be dealt with at leisure later. The US needed Ukraine in NATO pronto to get the Aegis Ashore nuke -ready system in place asap. That system would have a 5 minute flight time to Moscow compared to the 12 minutes for the similar pre-existing systems in Poland and Romania. The US’s long hoped-for checkmate.
More to do with stopping Russian energy from the EU than Ukraine.
With cheaper to obtain Russian gas, US frackers go bankrupt just like Dominion Energy. No matter how many holes they drilled they lost money.
While I find the scenario credible – there was an uptick in shelling of Donbass before February 24 – it might have been better to let the attack start and then launch the counter-attack. Thus accusations that Russia is the aggressor would have been greatly weakened.
In direct context to this exact matter Putin explicitly stated his learned experience that ‘when a fight is inevitable it is always best to strike first’.
Perhaps this helps us to understand why Putin is President of Russia and you’re not in any similar position.
I mean no offence. I merely point to the categorical difference between dynamic forward action and whimsical hindsight.
Il tuo ragionamento è errato.
Qualsiasi cosa la Russia avesse detto, anche con prove evidenti, sarebbe stata sempre e comunque smentita dalla presstitute occidentale.
Your reasoning is incorrect.
Whatever Russia says, even with clear evidence, will always be denied by the Western presstitute.
I agree but intelligent people when properly informed with data, will believe you.
Even the whipped-puppy osce or whatever their name is , noted it was ukro uptick in bombing Donbas.
They were of course removed a week or so ago , so no real eyes “on the ground “ to say other than West’s narrative, exactly like UN peacekeepers in Golan were mysteriously removed when the jihadis were getting refuge in Israel ; after the Syrians and Russia beat their backsides.
Trust your opponents, but first verify that they are out of moral bullets.
If it were not so typical we would find it breathtaking in its evil. How the US/”Western free media” try to hide this will surely show how much the narrative control has led to the extreme Russophobia and outright madness in the behaviour of the USA, EU and of course NATO. People in the West have ignored Iran, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Palestine, Yemen when their forces have killed hundreds of thousands of people in illegal wars, yet suddenly find abundant sympathy for a country of which they knew nothing until 2014 and ignored its cruelty to many of its inhabitants until just now.
They’ll find a way to hide it in plain sight from the hate-addled masses.
Already they are spinning the discovery of the covert bio-lab network as a ‘a threat to global safety in Putin’s mad hands’. So that they exist, and how and why they exist, is completely buried beneath a mad clamour about ‘Putin’s evil exploitation of their dangerous content’.
A visceral stampede of the bovine hordes.
here is the link to Nuland’s speech in Congress..
Sim!!!, isso é exatamente o que está acontecendo, é exatamente o que está fazendo a nazisionista Victoria nulan ao tentar apagar suas digitais nas ampolas do “gás zircon” que ela mesma produziu nesses laboratórios e que agora propaga histéricamente ao mundo como seria perigoso putin colocar as mãos na prova desse crime.
Vamos ver quanto tempo levará para que nossas hordas bovinas comprem essa narrativa canalha.
Yes!!!, that is exactly what is happening, that is exactly what Nazi Victoria Nuland is doing as she tries to erase her fingerprints on the vials of “zircon gas” that she herself produced in those labs and is now hysterically propagating to the world how dangerous it would be for Putin to get his hands on the evidence of this crime.
Let’s see how long it will take for our bovine hordes to buy this scoundrel narrative.
Thus, only one question remains unclear so far: how deeply the US leadership and its NATO allies were involved in the planning and preparation of the operation to storm the Donbass by the Ukrainian joint force grouping in early March. All those who care so much about peace in Ukraine today
This I thinks is the key point in all of this – the last paragraph. How much did NATO know about the planned invasion by Ukraine of the Dunbass? I suspect they not only knew but were actively training the Ukrainians in how to do it. This was another war of agression in the making by NATO which the Russians pre-empted. This needs to be thoroughly investigated and if it is proven that NATO did the planning for this war — NATO should be disbanded
NATO nie musiało nic wiedzieć.
W szkolenie zaangażowani byli jedynie Anglosasi- USA, GB, Kanada.
Reszta to marionetki informowane po fakcie.
Dokładnie taka sama metoda była stosowana przy szkoleniu Talibów, czy ISIS.
Reszta dostarcza jedynie mięsa armatniego i współfinansuje eskapady korpusów interwencyjnych.
Swoja drogą, zadziwiająca jest łatwość szczucia na siebie narodów czy prowokowania wojen domowych.
Do perfekcji opanowano zasadę divide et impera.
Od czasów Korei, Wietnamu, działa bez pudła.
Rozszarpaie Jugosławii czy obecnie Ukrainy, to ciag dalszy tej samej gry.
NATO it didn’t have to know anything. Only Anglo-Saxons were involved in the training – USA, GB, Canada. The rest are puppets informed after the fact. Exactly the same method was used to train the Taliban or ISIS. The rest provide only cannon fodder and co-finance the escapades of the intervention corps. By the way, what is astonishing is the ease with which nations are pitted at each other or to provoke civil wars. The principle of divide et impera has been mastered to perfection. Since the days of Korea, Vietnam, it has been operating without a box. The tearing up of Yugoslavia or now Ukraine is a continuation of the same game.
OK if it is the Anglosazons, their leadership to needs to be removed. The Anglo Empire is over. I think the best description of it is “The Empire of Lies” by Vladimir Putin. There are signs that this will happen in Canada and the US but nothing yet in the UK. People are fed up with all the transparent lies and propoganda. There has to be accountability for peoples words and actions.
As far as canada is concerned, yes the people are fed up with the governments.
Sadly our situation resembles ukraine pre maidan.
What im trying to say is, if there is a government change, the majority will demand an even more fascist government than today.
The so called freedom convoy was anything but. If anything, its was demanding more freedoms to be more nazi.
The media needs to be broken, somehow. There a loose cannon right now fomenting war 24/7. These paid liars must be reigned in. It wont be pretty.
“NATO should be disbanded”
As an absolute minimum, those involved in planning, authorization etc need to be prosecuted to the full extent
NATO should have disbanded 30 years ago. Russia is not the Warsaw Pact. Only its nukes are threat, but only used defensively so no problem.
As has been well reported, between December 2021 and up to just a week prior to Russia’s special military operation, US/NATO delivered 50+ cargo planes of weapons to Ukraine.
I think this supports the emerging facts about a Ukrainian military buildup along the Line of Contact that bordered the Donbass republics, prior to February 24. Crimea was also marked for invasion in the same offensive action.
It seems glaringly obvious to me that US/NATO were in on the planned assault on Donetsk and Luhansk, ostensibly scheduled for March 8. Crimea was to also be invaded, the thinking being that with military forces separating the peninsula from Russian territory that it would un fait accompli, as situation that Russia would find difficult to reverse.
There was a concerted drive to get Ukraine into NATO and therefore be shielded by NATO’s Article 5 concerning member collective defence, and this would have led to the positioning of weapons systems aimed at Russia which would be just minutes from Moscow.
Then there is the situation where there existed US Department of Defense sponsored biolabs (~30) in Ukraine, and several of those were positioned just across from the borders of the Russian Federation. There is reason to believe that the US was also helping Ukraine to develop nuclear weapons, as Ukraine has pre-Soviet capabilities in this area.
Considering all these threatening actions, which the Russian Federation is continuing to document, and the prior ongoing belligerence from the US/NATO in positioning combat forces and missiles in an arc across the regions of western and south-western Russia, a first strike by Russia was not only totally logical but imperative.
“How much did NATO know about the planned invasion by Ukraine of the Dunbass”
I agree that the UK, Canada and US were deeply involved. Canada’s own Chrystia Freeland is in it upto her eyeballs, and has been in involved for years, even before being elected. It goes back two generations in her family.
Continental Europe less so because they are the fools in the middle who will suffer the collateral damage whether from the military action or from the weaponization of the financial. However if Freeland was involved, this could mean that the folks in Davos and Basel are deeply involved as well, especially in ensuring some financial chaos.
I think the US-UK-Canada involvement is why the global media have so quickly rolled out the hysterical save Ukraine narrative. Their media war was clearly planned from before any Russian movement, complete with video game images.
Aside from the fact that NATO is useless yet dangerous, it does not seem to be a very cohesive organization either.
It looks like the Ukies attempted to replicate an “Oluja offensive” (Operation Storm) witch drove out approximately 250 000 Serbs from their homes in Republika Srpska Krajina in 1995. I’m really glad that they their attempt failed.
Well…..not by a longshot.
As i have spent much time and effort explaining that croatia, if compared the situation, is much more like lughansk abd Donetsk republick than anything other id you really want to compare.
In Ceoatia today this is the point: Russians = Serbs, Croatia = Ukraine. Its for morons that understand nothing. .
Agree this could be construed to be RUF propaganda-certainly the West will spill it that way.
However, would go to the point that while they were apparently dug in defensive positions, the Ukes were so unprepared to defend those same positions – because they were switching from defense to offensive by move men & material to staging areas.
Should Russia waited until Ukes attacked? I don’t think it would have helped in court of public opinion since the West would have spun an attack on Donbras as ‘justified’. I’m not a military strategist, but it seems an idea time to attack someone is when they are getting ready to attack you – elements of surprise and all that.
Either way, seems like West has amped up the usual stuff from poking the Bear to all out conventional war by proxy. Guess I am thankful they went the conventional route at the moment. The rest of the world will pay for what amount to a frat boy fight between fraternities…no wonder why the world is falling apart.
Inked paper, later proved to be a forgery, would undermine the Russian PR case big time.
True or not, so what.
Why take the bait risk?
Just get on and finish the job.
Facts on the ground are 9/10’s of the law.
Documented evidence for the court hearings inevitably yet to come.
Same thing they did to Serbs in Croatia, by storming out 200000 Serbs, all with logistic support from USA. Those Serbs never returned. I am myself refugee from Croatia, I lost apartment never to be returned. Croatia is honoring Ustasa movement which is practically Nazi movement. Any similarities?
I am Croatian with Bosnian roots.
Witness to the events of over 30 years ago.
You will agreee that was all some first chapters of the Big story happening today? Thats how I look at it.
My God, id only Ukranians have payed attention to the story line…. much of this could have been avoided. We had our oligarchs and psychopath lot destroying everything but those were kids compared to ukranian ones…outright criminals.
So my opinion, comparing Croatia/Bosnia war is: wtf??! Ukraine?!
We had no time, training, nato billions od dollars equipment, 8 years to prepare, deploy, strategize…overwhelming support from west and whatnot…none!
If I correctly remeber, there was an embargo on weapons and everything for croatia.
Our enemy was not ashamed with leveling cities with artillery, killing every civilian in sight oh yes, and there was NO ELECTRICITY or any commodities beeing available….for years.
So…similarities, i think not.
And it is to my great saddnes that today most people ‘here chose to forget all that and side with nazis to their own moral and material dettriment.
I thank you mr Putin for ending this long shitshow and making the REAL WORLD be seen for what it is, a sick joke.
“If I correctly remember, there was an embargo on weapons and everything for croatia”
You don’t remember it correctly. Croatia had NATO air support, planning, weapons etc. There was no embargo. Easily verifiable.
Croatia received full NATO support years in the run up to both operations Bljesak & Oluja – NATO bombed Republika Srpska Krajina during Operation Oluja, they bombed Udbina airport & earlier, the Maslenica Most in support of the Croatian military, correctly referred to as “Ustasha”, like their brothers, the Ukronazi Banderists. Croatia received years of training & planning preparations from the US military private company, MPRI – Military Professional Resources Inc. The leadership of Ukraine have themselves openly referred to Operations Oluja & Bljesak as the model & inspiration upon which they would attack the DNR/LNR/Donbass republics. We learn that Croatian mercenaries & volunteers in their hundreds, possibly thousands are travelling to Ukraine to fight against Russia & the Russian Ministry of Defence has reported 100 Croatian mercenaries having been captured.
750,000 Orthodox Christian’s were expelled from Croatia in 1995. That’s the real number.
Croatia population 1991, pre-war: 4.784.265
Croatia population 2001, post-war, and huge “emigration” of Croats because of the same Serbs pilagging their lands: 4.437.460
Classic Serbian degenerate lies ;)
The trigger for the operation was Zelenski mouthing off in Munich about developing his own nuclear weapons. I am sure the Russians have their numerous sources of information and had not by chance decided to have military exercises in February. The US now have to respond to these documents and the bio laboratories which Nuland referred to, very uncomfortable she looked… because she does not know how much the Russians know.
Well, breaking news. Apparently the trigger was actually Russia’s discovery of clandestine Ukrainian military instructions to unleash massive death and destruction on the Russians who reside in eastern Ukraine, and since they’ve already killed 14,000 and shelled their churches and schools and hospitals over the past 8 years, I guess that was Russia’s breaking point. The Ukrainian offensive was scheduled to begin in March and Russia acted before they could have a chance to do it.
Saker, thank you very much for posting this.
The Telegram channel has been CENSORED here in the UK — it cannot display these SIX PAGES that the Russian Defense Ministry posted of the classified documents that prove that Kiev planned a major Donbass offensive in March.
Message says: This chanel can’t be displayed because it violated local laws.
In Finland I can see the Russian MOD channel but RT and Sputnik are banned. However Sputnik US works. Here is a link to post with the documents: (The ones on the MOD channel are in better resolution though.)
I was able to access Sputnik news Telegram until the 11th March… Today, 13th March, it is still censored… And now, RT too… Disgrace… They are just making me mad… Can’t they guess that this is NOT going to make me change my mind?
That document is not accessible from where I live. Could someone save it to a western accessible site for download?
Have you tried a VPN? I am using one exiting in Germany and the data is available.
The documents are only viewable in the Telegram client (at least on my system).
I have downloaded the images of the document pages. I will look into uploading them somewhere if the prf is not available.
Big request – if anyone gets a copy of this pdf, or the earlier one (https://function.mil.ru/files/morf/dokumentsmukr.pdf), please, please, please transfer a copy to Yandex, Dropbox, whatever, so the word can be spread.
change the DNS server adress in your router to 126.96.36.199. and the secondary adress to 188.8.131.52.
on the other hand, setting up a VPN does make sense if the censoring site does use geoblocking, like youtube.
Zelensky comes to Westminster and receives his Congressional Bibi moment, then whished off (useful idiot ) to meet his MI6/CIA handlers.
At what point does he realise they’re paper tigers, good for covert operations and fighting 3rd world countries (of which Ukraine definitely one )? In a transparent war v Russia, the information aspect is all they’re capable of winning.
The world’s perception of NATO after yet another incompetent showing, despite 8 years in the planning, will embolden others to step from under their wing.
Time for Russia to up the anti and fully support Iran/Resistance in Syria by continuing to thwart Israeli liberties with their EW. The whole of the Middle-East is primed to accept Russia as guarantors of security. This is of significant importance as others have been looking on seeing Russian weakness, watching US/Israel piss & shit on Syria. I sincerely hope this is Putin’s/Russia’s goal after mopping up Ukraine.
Well that will help to shower the “vat en guerre” in Europe. That is if the documents can be shown on the media. But still. Maybe it will be enough to leave in the trash can of history the sanctions the European Union wanted to put on Russia. With a bit of luck, the Kommission won’t f*ck up european economy.
They are stupid ideological apatrid technocrats blind to reality outside of their rules and “recomendations”, but even them should understand that cuting off Europe from oil and gaz would open the door to an absolute dissatisfaction on the streets. The more people are left in the cold, the more angrier they will be…
For the last 30 minutes in the UK and via VPN over various locations all I could see was Saker Latin America – only available security certificate Spain, and multi-browser warnings that this website will infect your computer and grab your credit card details! Oh boy, that last set of documents may have REALLY ruffled Deep State feathers! Share it far and wide!
I’m told same in Aus. The butt -hurts just copy REAL errors to make people scared of watching. My friend still pressed “watch website “ , and it still didn’t load! Now that is new! They hoped to have most people choose not to go there so as to maintain the fiction of malicious hackers!
You ever known a malicious hacker making it HARDER to load the website they are impersonating? Lol
Intelligence services and coopted hackers for sure!
Unseen Uni…Confirmed, same situation here in Galveston TX…Too much truth leaking out…The Saker is our only view of reality…All the fictitious warnings the “site is unsafe, not secure”…Let’s us all know who the good guys really are…It’s not American media, that’s for sure and for certain…
I think it will get much worse. Apparently, by observing the comportment of Ms. Nuland, I surmise that the occidentals were caught pants down by Russia. Russia was obviously watching things very closing, with the US completely unaware they were doing it. You can´t use children for players when adult opponents are you advesaries. It seems they are gathering a paper trail more than a mile wide. Real bush league stuff in action.
The 2014 coup overthrowing the democratic government, foreign-funded biological weapon laboratories, “insurgency training” by foreign intelligence services, foreign inflow of advanced weaponry, veto of anti-nazi resolution at the UN Security Council … it’s pretty clear who the Nazis really are.
While we’re awaiting Russia’s reciprocal sanctions, Sputnik International reports that Biden signed the order preventing Russian Oil & Gas past 2022 (same UK ) while they run around Russia’s allies to make up the shortfall. Well Biden has left off sanctioning Russian uranium imports which are quite significant. Hit the bastards here.
Act now think of consequences later, these scum ain’t too smart.
Screw the information war, Russia lose/lose up until stupid Americans & Europeans are left in the dark or paying 3 times more on energy/food bills.
Yes, if those suckers are taken in hook line and sinker even with access to all the information then sod them. People should learn the hard way, it’s character building, like a bloody nose.
Could these Documents Be similar to the Zimmerman Telegram of WW1 with intended result? All wars are bankster wars.
Here is from Brazil.
It’s a pity that we couldn’t open the website https://function.mil.ru/ (appears only “Hmm… I can’t get to this page”) and get the documents discovered by the Russian defense.
Would it be possible for saker to make the pdf available directly on its own website?
Maybe I’m asking too much, but as the documents are written in Cyrillic, is there any version/translation for Latin alphabet, like English, for example?
I have the same problem Humberto. By the time I could take down the pics and the words, mil.ru was down again. I’ll keep an eye and see if I can snag’em :-)
Or anyone else, if you can download the docs, send to me (email at bottom of page) and I’ll upload the real thing for us.
We had no problem downloading the images from the Ministry Telegram channel. I’ve forwarded all six to you as e.mail attachments just now.
Hope this is useful!

How Kyiv prepared an attack on the Donbass: the original secret order was made public
I thank you. I had followed your advice and I get to do it
These documents are absolutely not going to have any impact in the West. The Western media will A. not report them, or B. claim they are fakes, or C. versions of both. But they absolutely are still very important. They can (and should) be revealed in the UN. Shown to all friendly nations. Shown to the liberated Ukrainians. Shown to the Russian people. And most important of all, used as evidence at war crimes trials once the victory is won.
“GT investigates: Evidence suggests US may have supported neo-Nazi Azov Battalion”
“Ironically, despite being widely regarded as a threat to world security and an enemy of human civilization, Azov Battalion was found to have ties not only with the Ukraine authorities but also with the US. After looking into the public information from the US government and some investigative reports by Western journalists, the Global Times discovered that American politicians, military and intelligence officers were highly likely to have had cooperation with the Azov Battalion, in order to foster extremist forces in Eastern Europe against Russia.”
The Russian govt should invite media from eastern countries China, India, Pakistan, middle eastern and african countries and expose their planned attack on Donbass.
I think the part named “paragraph 12 of the order” which “prohibits sending National Guardsmen who showed “unsatisfactory” results of psychological testing according to the criterion of “risk readiness” to the area of combat coordination and to the place of performance of “combat special tasks” deserves a little more emphisis.
Basically, it is saying they planned on sending certified “phycos” in to do the dirty work.
What comes to mind is a book by U.S. Lt. Colonel Grossman, “On killing” which describes training for U.S. servicemen to make a large majority of U.S. forces “sickos” in order to the better to kill people. So, considering this background, one comes to see the type of greater military planning by the West in world affairs.
Get ready for some real shockers here in this Ukraine thing. Russia is just beginning thier engagements with the urban centers. The nasty has yet to happen. (Hope I’m wrong; that the Ukrainian people will think wisely.)
I am almost happy the citizens of the west will be the next targets of their governments’ skull cracking Nazi brigade.
They deserve it so much.
Stupid people who pay zero attention to world affairs not filtered through Joy Behar and The View.
The populace has become a mirror image of the media, fanatics spewing venom and hate with a warped sense of moral superiority.
God help us all
“I draw your attention that as many as five paragraphs of 4th paragraph are devoted to the issues of careful selection of personnel, psychologists examination and ensuring their high motivation.”
I translate that by “Officers will only enroll in this operation mentally-challenged people who enjoy massacring civilians in the Donbass”
These war plans would fit in perfectly to what America and the West in general have been trying to do in Ukraine:
Bait Russia into a military intervention, so that they can hypocritically accuse Russia of aggression and self-righteously denounce the very war that the USA and West have been covertly trying to provoke.
This is the Democratic West’s Machiavellian geopolitical strategy of Bear-Baiting.
It is great that Russin forces have been able to get their hands on these documents that prove that a US (“Ukrainian”) invasion of the Donbass was imminent. Of course Victoria “F the EU” Nuland will say that “the Russians” created these fake documents, etc., please hate Russia. End of Another Russian Nothingburger Story In The West.
I’m going to go a bit off-topic here, so if the mods want to turf what follows, that’s fine with me.
Saker wrote very soon after the Russian special operation began in earnest (soon after the evacuation of some people from the DPR), that Russia must have prepared, or planned, if you will, this military action for quite some time before it took place. I absolutely agree with this. (Which means that the US was actually correct when it said that Russia was planning an invasion of Ukraine very soon …………. but only because the US was about to seriously provoke it, not that it knew that Russia actually had a plan! Russia wisely denied it was planning to invade, but to me it is now pretty obvious that that was, at the very least, a very big “little white lie”, the reasons for which I can easily understand and fully support.) The question that I’m interested in answering is as follows. Just exactly when did this planning and logistical preparation begin?
I think that in order for us to do some sound, logical speculating, we would have to know as much as Russia did about the extent of the involvement of the CIA, etc. leading up to, during and after the 2014 coup. Russia certainly had intelligence assets in Ukraine to make this determination.
Regardless, history proves that Russia did not attempt to overturn the illegal coup of 2014 in the year 2014.
I must say right off the bat that I sincerely doubt that, prior to the 2014 coup, Russia had detailed plans already drawn up to overturn/reverse a potential coup in Ukraine (but I might be wrong), let alone deal with its aftermath. I think that the Russian bear may have been caught with her Genuine Sochi Olympic Pants down around her ankles, so to speak, or, more kindly, still in winter hibernation, when the coup happened. (After all, how many governments have detailed plans to reverse an totally unexpected coup?)
The scale of the present military operation and, therefore, the scale of its necessary 24/7 logistical support is mind-boggling. This is definitely no weekend camping trip. I am not a military expert, but what I see unfolding before my eyes today must have taken literally years of planning and training. And, like the D-day landings, this build-up of, for lack of a better expression, “forces” had to have at least a tentative “Invade Mecum” Start Date.
And there also had to be a plan “leading up to” that tentative start date. To flesh that out, let’s do a “recap” of very recent events leading up to the start of the “special operation”.
We have Russia issuing its surprising (non)ultimatums to the US and ”NATO”(= US) in December, which were followed by the (non)responses of the US and “NATO” and then some (non)negotiations between Russia and Blindken, village-idiot Hernia Truss, Sargent Schultz, Micron, etc. — all of which resulted in no progress, which surprised absolutely no one. We wondered why Russia would bother with all of this useless “going through the motions” and Saker and the other Andrei and some commenters speculated that these refusals were “laying the groundwork”, or creating the justification, for future, but unspecified, wide-ranging military and technical action. The possibilities were endless for what Russia might possibly do. Even so, little did we know what the scale of the actual response was going to be – and how soon it would take place.
IMO, Russia issuing its non(ultimatums) was the first of the end-steps of (the lead-up to) a coup-reversal/regime-change plan which was started literally the day after, or maybe even during, the coup in 2014.
Aside from denying the Nazis a victory in the Donbas, Russia’s first big political post-coup victory was getting resolution 2202 unanimously approved, albeit on paper, in the UN. If the US (“Ukraine”) had followed the terms of that agreement, very good. That would have been livable for Russia. But I think that Russia probably realized that that was not going to happen (US History 101, etc.). But as time dragged on, the bodies in the Donbas piled up. Although the shelling was frequent and deadly, at least the US (“Ukraine”) did not invade the Donbas. That was a price that “Russia” was willing to pay, for the moment.
Concurrently, while time marched on, Russia’s secret plan for coup-reversal/regime-change became more and more firmed up until, again, the (non)ultimatums in December, etc. to the invasion and subsequent military action we see ongoing today.
Therefore, I think that Russia was not really forced to take military action to regime-change “Ukraine” by any action that the US (“Ukraine”) has taken in the year 2022, although the predictable increased shelling of the Donbass certainly provided the politically-necessary-and-adequate pretext for taking such action.
In reality, the US (“Ukraine”) literally forced Russia to inevitably take military action the day it regime-changed the legally elected Ukrainian government in the year 2014. Russia’s forced response to that 2014 coup was “temporarily delayed” to Feb. 2022 — a time of Russia’s choosing — for a maximum chance of success, and a maximum chance of surviving the certain barrage of sanctions (deadly war by other means) shortly thereafter and right up to today.
(What drives me crazy are the so-called “real leftists”, such as Aaron Mate and Medea Benjamin, saying that Russia was wrong to invade because it “strengthened NATO” or “two-wrongs don’t make a right”. On thing is certain. Russia carrying out a “turn the other cheek” strategy would have led to Russia’s destruction. Fighting for your life is not the same a murder. Why can’t supposedly intelligent people realize that?)
I’ve been thinking the same thing. Although I did not expect it, I did not raise an eyebrow when they did. Having followed the events of the recent past, what surprised me was that Russia did not do it much earlier.
On Russian social media,I couldn’t agree more:
1. Ukraine planned a large-scale attack on the Lao PDR in March, the victims of which would be tens of thousands of Russians and directly citizens of the Russian Federation.
2. On the territory of Ukraine, biological weapons were developed aimed at the destruction of entire ethnic groups living on the territory of Russia, carriers of genes specific to our territory (here even the Holocaust will fade if successful). The presence of laboratories was confirmed by Victoria Nuland.
3. Ukraine began the creation of nuclear weapons within the radius of destruction of which Moscow and other Russian cities. President Zelensky publicly announced such intentions.
4. On the territory of Ukraine, the creation of NATO infrastructure began for the subsequent deployment of nuclear missiles, strategic aviation with atomic bombs for the lightning destruction of our cities from Rostov to Vladivostok, along with the population, excluding the possibility of a retaliatory strike from the Russian Federation.
5. Over the 8 years of the war, Ukraine in the Donbass destroyed 15 thousand peaceful Russian people, hundreds of children. Crimes against humanity have been committed.
6. Ukraine has officially announced claims to Russian territories (such as the Kuban) and plans for the military return of Crimea.
7. Ukraine adopted a neo-Nazi ideology and set itself the goal of destroying everything Russian, including culture and language, and the Russian state itself as such.
If one of the citizens of the Russian Federation, despite all these facts, takes the side of Ukraine, wanting to defeat his country; between the Russian martyrs of Donbass (his own) and the Ukrainian tormentors (outsiders) he chooses the latter – then he is a moral monster, an enemy, a degenerate and should not even live on the territory of the Russian Federation.
A Ukro-Nazi Special Operations group receive a big “We can see you” from ?Russian? forces. I expect there would be a few 200s.

Haven’t the war criminals in the West achieved a major goal by stopping the flow of Russian gas and oil to the EU? Cornering the market for Western companies?
Now if the US tries to make up for the shortage, oil and gas rices in the US will skyrocket.
Thing is, Russia still has liquid gas in the ground while the US is extracting gas from rocks.
The major plays of Gas in the US have already been tapped and are barely profitable or not. Dominion Energy has gone bankrupt with their fracked gas even while sucking the best plays.
Now because of sanctions, fracked gas will receive a lifeline
and become profitable but US consumers will pay a huge price. Gasoline is at a record high price, now.
Does Biden think people will ignore this?
In the end, US will be buying gas from Russia who has vast reserves and unknown reserves still hidden in Siberia. Meanwhile US is sucking gas from stone.
Time is on Russia’s side.
This evidence has establish Volodmyr Zelensky the Comic Leader of Ukraine is a War Criminal and must arrested and brought to Justice.
Wait a minute…
I just read an English translation of this on the Sputnik Telegram channel. The translation is as follows:

Now I don’t see anywhere in that an order to carry out an actual operation in March, 2022. What I read there is an operational order to transfer some unit from somewhere to another unit. There’s not even a reference to March in there, anywhere that I can see.
So how is this different from any other operational order in the conduct of the Ukrainian military?
Am I missing something?
By the way, can someone PLEASE get hold of the PDF from the MoD and upload it where people can get at it? Dropbox, Google Drive, Rapidgator, some file sharing service?
I have it now. Give me a while to collate and post up.
Great! Then we need someone to translate it properly and format it properly.
Where are we are that? Do we have a properly formatted English translation yet?
I will add that I think the references to the “psychological condition” of the soldiers of the unit referenced make sense if this is an operational order to transfer a rear area unit to a unit in the conflict zone. You don’t want to send soldiers who are not ready for actual combat since they’ve always been in a rear area.
Of course, there could be a more sinister aspect, as others have noted. But given the circumstances and the political unreliability of the conscripts that Ukraine is using in its military, I think requiring a psych assessment of a rear area unit when being transferred to a combat zone is equally likely.
What I see in this order is just the usual “military housekeeping” – moving a unit from one deployment to another.
I see nothing in there as “confirmation” that the Ukraine military were preparing an offensive on Donbass in March.
I want to see THAT operational order. That order won’t be five pages – it will be HUGE (at least the addendums will be – the main order might be one page.)
Don’t know if this has been reported here (haven’t read everything here from today yet), but from another source I got this:
Southfront.org is down even from behind a VPN in multiple countries.
I did some investigating and it appears they have a German webhost Hetzner.com and their host just took the site down,184.108.40.206 blocked.hetzner.com a traceroute aventually leads to: 220.127.116.11 blocked.hetzner.com
I can confirm that I can’t reach Southfront using NordVPN through a server in Hong Kong, so that’s likely true.
Whatever the sequence of events leading to the military-technical operation was, the most relevant thing is this: The Russian Federation will intervene in Ukraine, should Ukraine pose a threat to the national security of Russia. This is a precedent that has been set. Therefore it is imperative that a more comprehensive international security arrangement must be set up.
