News, War in the Donbas

Road tractors and transporters with full-size models (dummies) of armored vehicles have repeatedly “travelled” from Donbas to Russia. Thus, Russia is trying to deceive Kyiv and the international community by simulating removal of armored vehicles from Eastern Ukraine.

Dmytro Tymchuk, Information resistance group coordinator, wrote about this on his Facebook page

Road tractors and transporters with full-size models (dummies) of armored vehicles have repeatedly “travelled” the territory of Donbas to Russia through the Uspenka border checkpoint. One can not exclude an operation by the Russian terrorist forces to mislead Kyiv and the international organizations by simulating the withdrawal of Russian troops from the territory of Donbas.

        Curious about the photo I posted? It’s just my opinion on how the stupid people who believe Russia’s lies and propaganda and support it’s state sponsored terrorists can cure their own stupidity and do the rest of the world a favor.

    An idea copied from the George Patton operation of WWII . Seems like no original ideas come out of the Kremlin. The whole operation of the invasion came out of a Hitler playbook and probably Fuhrer Putin read it in the original German as he is fluent in that language and has a great deal of admiration of that lunatic. When will he start his operation of the “Final Solution”.
