Information Defence: Military-Political Situation in Ukraine as of April 18th – Ihor Zhdanov

1. The Armed Forces of Ukraine are preparing for the decisive battle for the Donbas area.

Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valerii Zaluzhnyi has stated on Facebook that the Russian army is trying to break through the defence line in several directions, focusing its main efforts on the Iziumskyi.

The threat from the sea was significantly reduced due to the sinking of the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet of the russian federation. However, the danger of landing naval and airborne troops remains. In this regard, measures are being taken to strengthen air defence, including logistical technical assistance from partner countries.

«Больше недели им не продержаться» Жители Мариуполя — о гуманитарной катастрофе, которая разворачивается у них на глазах

(March 8, 2022)

Игорь рассказал, что в последние дни февраля в роддом, где работает его мать, пришли люди в форме. Он не знает, были это бойцы ВСУ или националистического батальона «Азов» (запрещен в РФ). Военные сбили все замки, разогнали персонал роддома, а в здании устроили огневые точки, чтобы, как они объяснили медикам, подготовить к обороне «крепость Мариуполь». На возражения у военных реакция стандартная: удары прикладами, стрельба в воздух.

Also, a son of one of the employees stated that everyone was told to leave this hospital because Ukraine army or Azov (he is not sure) can position itself there and use it as a cover.

Interview was published on 3/9 in Lenta, top Russian liberal outlet.

Correction: the interview was published on 3/8, a day before this attack. But it doesn’t change a thing, in fact, it just confirms that the interviewee told this story BEFORE attack even happened.
