…from early morning Russian media
[ Editor’s Note: When we first published this Donetsk capital cluster bomb missile strike, I was suspicious then that someone in the missile command had lost a relative somewhere and wanted to hit back.
I would have lost a bet that the top commander made the call, and was not known to Mr. Zelensky who was busy chasing Western support to save his bacon. So General Pavlyuk got his butt fried which is still a better deal that the Donetsk pensioners getting blown up while shopping, bleeding out on the streets.
The video of the pool of blood on the street at the bottom of the steps of one of the buses is going to stay with me for a while.
The Volnovakha remaining hospital staff had wisely retreated to the basement when the tank shells came in above them from the withdrawing Ukies saying goodbye. A baby was being born at the time. Thus went another day of Ukraine devouring itself… Jim W. Dean ]
First revealed … March 15, 2022
On 15 March, there have been critical workers reshuffles within the command of Ukraine’s Joint Forces Operation (JFO). Because of the defeat of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in Donbas, Zelenskyy dismissed commander Pavlyuk and appointed his deputy, Basic Moskalyov, to this submit.
It may be assumed that the Ukrainian management misplaced confidence in him as a consequence of Basic Pavlyuk’s full incapability to handle the AFU defence, in addition to the lack of Volnovakha and the blockade of Ukrainian troops in Mariupol.
Nevertheless, the decisive issue for Pavlyuk’s elimination was his unauthorized use of a commander Pavlyuk system with a cluster-type warhead on the town centre of Donetsk, which killed 21 civilians and wounded 37.
This was a robust rehearsal for Ukraine’s political management, which was notably delicate in opposition to the backdrop of Kiev’s growing want for exterior monetary and navy help from the West.
