Russia declares partial ceasefires to allow humanitarian activities in Ukraine —

On March 5, the Russian Defense Ministry announced a one day ceasefire to evacuate civilians from Mariupol and Volnovakha.

These are the key strongholds of the Ukrainian Army and nationalist battalions in Donetsk Region. Both of them are now encircled by joint forces of Russia, the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Lugansk People’s Republic.

Mariupol is a big port city, mainly ethnic Russian, situated in the part of Donetsk still controlled by Ukraine, between the Russian controlled areas of Donetsk Repuiblic (DPR) and Crimea. The Ukranian Nazis aim to again keep the city by any means (as they did in 2014) and have prepared a trap which threatens to cause a bloodbath as Russianand DPR troops close in.

The Mayor of Mariupol had appealed for help saying there was little food, water or electricity in the city. Russia and Ukraine have now agreed on setting up huimanitarian escape corridors from cities and Russia has begun a humanitarian aid program.

According to the representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Major General Igor Konashenkov, humanitarian corridors and exit routes have been agreed with the Ukrainian side.

Kiev authorities claim that 200,000 civilians want to leave Mariupol and 20,000 civilians – Volnovakha. It is obvious that members of Kiev forces will try to leave the areas via the opened humanitarian corridors. Nonetheless, they will not be able to do this with weapons and in military uniforms.

“From 1000 am Moscow time (0700 GMT), the Russian side declares a ceasefire and the opening of humanitarian corridors to allow civilians to leave Mariupol and Volnovakha,” Russian news agencies quoted the Russian defence ministry as saying.

Ukrainian Armed Forces Destroyed Headquarters Of Azov Nationalist Battalion

The headquarters of the nazi Azov special detachment in Mariupol were hit yesterday with the Tochka-U tactical missile system by the Ukrainian Armed Forces, according to the DPR People’s Militia.

According to the report, more than 20 militants were killed.

“The location of the headquarters of a separate special purpose detachment “Azov” in the south-west of Mariupol was struck by the armed forces of Ukrainewith the “Tochka-U” tactical missile system. As a result of the strike, more than 20 militants and 10 pieces of equipment were destroyed,” the report says.

The attack was a result of the contradictions between the UAF command and commanders of the Azov battalion.

Members of the Azov nationalist battalion, who are now blockaded in the city of Mariupol, reportedly refuse to obey and coordinate their actions with the command of the Ukrainian Army.

The nationalist battalions pose a big threat not only to the Russian soldiers, but also to the local civilians, who were kept in hostage in the city, as well as to the current regime in Kiev and President Volodymir Zelenskiy.
