    A conflict is brewing in the top military leadership of the russian federation due to significant losses and the lack of real achievements at the front. In February of this year, putin awarded the commander of the Eastern Military District, Muradov, the rank of colonel general for a report on the "successes" of the 155th Marine Brigade in the Vugledar axis. Now the russian ministry of defense Shoigu demands that the general work out his rank and take the city at any cost. According to the available information, the leadership of the 155th brigade and the servicemen refuse to go on a senseless offensive again, in which the incompetent leadership sends them - to storm the well-fortified positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine without any support and preparation.

    The Ukrainian Air Force launched 10x air strikes on the concentrations of occupants’ manpower and equipment. During the day of March 05, missile and artillery units hit 2x command post.

    Support the Armed Forces of Ukraine! We are approaching the victory together!
    Glory to Ukraine!
