Thirty-eighth day of Ukraine's war of liberation against fascist russia. And this war can be stopped much faster by a Ukrainian victory if Western countries help with planes and tanks. Western politicians are afraid of being involved in a war with fascist russia, but where is the logic in that? Ukraine is now reliably holding off russia's fascist army without the help of heavy equipment and planes that NATO countries could provide. But our army has to liberate Nazi-occupied territories with difficulty and, most importantly, for a long time. If we had enough military equipment, our army would be able to launch a counter-offensive and greatly reduce the threat of escalation of the war for NATO countries. Therefore, the bureaucracy associated with the supply of military equipment to the Ukrainian army only leads to more casualties of Ukrainian civilians. And as for Putin's fear of using nuclear weapons, there is only one conclusion to be drawn: if he fires even one nuclear missile, then it will be too late not only for Ukraine! So I see that when western politicians do not want to provide us with weapons right now, they do it deliberately to weaken the army of russian fascists not with weapons, but with the blood of peaceful Ukrainians. But our heroic people will hold out and defeat the russian fascists! My friends, I thank you for the support of my people, I see the massive support of Ukraine all over the world!
Glory to Ukraine!
And these are new losses of russian fascist bastards!

Red Cross is directly organising civilian rescue efforts now unlike earlier efforts not organised by them.
Further reports indicate the fighting on the escape route continued - from both sides. The Red Cross could not drive through a firefight.
Red Cross plans fresh attempt at Mariupol evacuation
A Red Cross team will make a fresh attempt on Saturday to help evacuate thousands of civilians from the port city of Mariupol, the International Committee of the Red Cross said in a statement.
An earlier attempt to help people flee the besieged city failed on Friday after "conditions made it impossible to proceed," the Red Cross said in a tweet and statement on their website.
The international aid organization appealed for all sides to provide security guarantees so that the evacuation mission can proceed.
"For the operation to succeed, it is critical that the parties respect the agreements and provide the necessary conditions and security guarantees," the Red Cross urged.
The initial plan on Friday was for the Red Cross to escort dozens of cars and buses carrying thousands of civilians out of Mariupol and bring them safely to another Ukrainian city. While Russian and Ukrainian officials have agreed to a humanitarian corridor, it was unclear whether the message has been received by troops on the ground.
Current Red Cross action. 27 March 22
This is International Red Cross. Each country has its own branch and their individual combined efforts working with IRC more than double the results below.
The International Red Cross appeals for approximately HKD 2.1 billion (CHF 250 million, $US270 million)) to assist at least 2 million people inside Ukraine and people reaching neighboring countries. Immediate operation will focus on providing shelter, and facilitating access to safe water, food, necessities, supporting medical supplies to health facilities, in the same time providing other sanitation and hygiene services. The Red Cross will also scale up the response on reuniting separated families.
The Ukrainian Red Cross Society has mobilized over 10,000 staff and volunteers to provide humanitarian aid across the country, including distributed 1,000 tons of food, water, relief and hygiene items to around 300,000 people; supported the evacuation of more than 58,000 people and provided first aid to over 42,000 people
Red Cross National Societies in Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Hungary, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia and Slovakia have now mobilized thousands of volunteers and staff, in particular at border crossings and train stations, to support the humanitarian services. Temporary accommodation has been set up along the borders to offer shelter or respite for the night. Staff and volunteers are distributing food items, water, basic necessities, hygiene products, bedding, clothes and SIM cards, etc to people arriving from Ukraine. The teams also provide medical care and psychosocial support for those in need.
My friend! Where is even one word here about Mariupol, where does it say that the Red Cross organized a functioning corridor for the withdrawal of civilians. In 33 days of encircling the city of Mariupol, not a single car with humanitarian aid has arrived there, not allowed in by Russian fascists. The Red Cross is not even claiming that the Russian fascists are violating agreements. There are now more than 150,000 civilians in this almost completely destroyed city with no water, no light, no heat, no medicine and not a single representative of the Red Cross. The living people in the basements of the collapsed houses are slowly dying because it is impossible to get them out of the rubble because the Russian fascists are constantly bombing the city. What, in 33 days the Red Cross could not think of anything to help the unfortunate people? Please don't talk to me about the Red Cross anymore!!!

OK Dima I won't mention them any more but I think you are selling short thousands of people who have voluntarily come from all over the world to brave the war and help millions of Ukrainians across the borders to a safe place in Europe. Inside Ukraine there are tens of thousands of both local Ukraine Red Cross and International Red Cross volunteers on the battlefield rescuing, feeding and evacuating victims of this terrible war. They are not there to fight, they are not there to die (although several have died already) they have given up their lives in safe countries to help the victims of your country.

I have listened recently on our local news that the International Red cross has been organising trucks and buses to do a rescue mission into the Ukraine to deliver food and water and to remove personnel out. Russia has not confirmed or denied them access and the roads intended to be used are supposed to be mined. This is why there appears to be no help from the International Red Cross.
This is how it is reported outside of the Ukraine.

Thirty-ninth day of the liberation struggle of the Ukrainian people against the russian fascists. Yesterday our troops entered the liberated cities of the Kiev region. The picture our troops saw was horrific. On the streets lie hundreds of bodies of civilians with their hands tied behind their backs and their heads shot through, as well as signs of torture! There are murdered children!!! This morning I looked at how russian youth treat Ukrainians - they hate us!!! Why? What have Ukrainians done to twenty year old russians that would make them hate us? The answer is simple - nothing! The answer is that the russians are a nation of barbarians whose goal in life is the destruction and annihilation of any nations. Modern russians, like the German fascists during World War II, consider themselves to be the highest nation! Now the russian fascists are concentrating their troops in the eastern direction of Ukraine, a second large-scale offensive is being prepared, thousands of units of military equipment have entered!!! Now the whole world has to decide whose side it is on, there is not enough sympathy anymore, putin wants to destroy Ukrainians as a nation! That is why western countries must provide heavy weapons to Ukraine, otherwise the slogans about the value of democracy from the mouths of most politicians are empty words! And any delay in providing arms is an accessory to the murder of Ukrainians!!!
Glory to Ukraine!
And these are the losses of the russian bastards as of the third of March!

Anyone in the world who supports Russia is an accomplice to the murder of Ukrainians, practically a fascist! If you really care about the pain of the Ukrainian people, drive the Russians away, let them go back to their shitty swamp. The world map should not have Russia on it, you should write fascist empire correctly! Glory to Ukraine!
