The occupiers are discussing with their relatives instructions for the destruction of Ukrainian cities: “Putin said to level everything with the ground.”

This is stated in the intercepts of the conversations of the Russian occupiers, published by the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense.

“As part of the work of the interdepartmental coordination center under the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense with the participation of the National Police, another interception of conversations of enemy military personnel was received, which reveals the plans of the Russian command regarding the war in Ukraine,” the report says.

In particular, Oleg Karasev, a serviceman of the aggressor’s army, tells his wife about the instructions he received regarding further actions in Ukraine: “Putin said that if we don’t do anything before May 10, then we’ll level everything to the ground.”

He also said that the occupiers have received orders and are still trying to “liberate” Rubizhne.

“And we’re comparing Lisichansk and Severodonetsk to the ground. We won’t try. Our contractors can’t move forward at all… Ours are being shot every day,” Karasev said.


The GUR emphasized that this conversation confirms that the Russian Federation purposefully switched to the tactics of destroying Ukrainian cities and crimes against the civilian population on the direct instructions of the country’s top military-political leadership, in particular the Russian president.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the occupiers fired at a number of settlements in the Donbas the day before .



  1. I so wish that Ukraine could obtain the capability to bring the war to mafia land with full force.

    • Agreed. Plus Moldova take back Transdnistria, Georgia take back South Ossetia and Abkhazia, Japan take back the Kuril islands, Lithuania/Poland take back Kaliningrad, Ukraine take back the Donbas and Crimea…and Sevastopol and then go all the way to Siberia to return the 100,000 kidnapped Ukrainians there.

What is your opinion?
