Author’s Note: The ‘Azovskoye’ region of Ukraine has been linked to the history of the ‘Azov Brigade’ – a Western-armed and funded neo-Nazi military Unit (that is part of the modern ‘Maidan’ Ukrainian Army) which has its historical roots in the Nazi German-inspired ‘Ukrainian National Army’ (UNA) of WWII – notorious for its ‘Catholic’ membership and extensive genocidal activities (and endless other crimes) committed against the men, women and children of the USSR! Russia’s amphibious-landing was supposed to have been met by this far-right militia – but whatever presence there was of these criminals in uniform soon melted away when faced with the determination of the Russian Forces deployed against them! This Russian victory against the ‘best’ Western-back troops the ‘Maidan’ Junta possessed warranted local Ukrainians running-out into the streets cheering and waving Red Flags in celebration!

MOSCOW, February 26. /TASS/. Russian forces have swept into Melitopol meeting no resistance during the operation aimed at demilitarizing Ukraine, the Russian Défense Ministry told reporters.
“In the evening of February 26, after an amphibious landing near the populated locality of Azovskoye (Ukraine), Russian units were on the march, and entered Melitopol, meeting no resistance. Melitopol residents welcomed the Russian troops who were moving around the city. Some elderly citizens took to the streets [waving] red flags,” the Défense Ministry said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a televised address on Thursday morning that in response to a request by the heads of the Donbass republics he had made a decision to carry out a special military operation in order to protect people “who have been suffering from abuse and genocide by the Kiev regime for eight years.” The Russian leader stressed that Moscow had no plans of occupying Ukrainian territories.
When clarifying the unfolding developments, the Russian Défense Ministry reassured that Russian troops are not targeting Ukrainian cities, but are limited to surgically striking and incapacitating Ukrainian military infrastructure. There are no threats whatsoever to the civilian population.
