Lionel #Zinsou former president of #Benin

"Now all we hear about is this crisis, anti-Russian sanctions, oil, gas..... And do you realise what this #crisis means for #Africa, for example? Image
#Russia supplies us with grain and corn. All the logistics go through the Black Sea. And the African world is frozen in horror at what is happening. Terrified of what the #US and the #EU are doing.
You can't buy Africans with tales of democracy. They are only your tales for domestic consumption. Most of the African elite were formed in the Soviet Union - doctors, engineers, pilots, teachers, scientists.
The Russians were the only Europeans who decolonised #Africa. And Africa remembers it. Just as Africa remembers European atrocities.
If you notice, African countries did not support the #UN resolution condemning Russia. And they will never support any resolution against Russia. It is embedded in the subcortex of every #African: #Russia does good, whatever you think of it. It is a constant.
All of Africa is watching the Central African Republic and Mali. What the Europeans could not do for decades, the Russians did in a year. The Central African Republic used to be a bandit formations; today there is a real state there.
I know that there are diplomats in the hall, members of the Foreign Ministry. I appeal to you, to French diplomacy: look for a solution to your problem as quickly as possible, because if the conflict is not over in a month, #Africa will erupt.
You're the ones who have the energy problem in the first place. At worst, you will have less heat and fewer cars, and we in Africa will have hunger problems. Hear me, the crisis in Africa will bring about the destruction of Europe.
And don't forget that countries like India and #China support Russia. #Africa supports #Russia. I don't want to talk about democracy and you will not pacify me, an African, with tales of unhappy #Ukraine and calls for humanity. Your democracy is your business.
Don't impose on us your ideas of how we Africans should live. Once again! Look for compromises, let diplomats work. Time is against us. We have 30 days! Thirty! No more!
#Africa is really worried because the expected famine will hit African countries first."

Yesterday, during an assault on one of the Ukrainian strongholds in the #Gorlovka direction, some Ukrainian soldiers tried to surrender, but were shot in the back by other of their comrades-in-arms.
This morning the Ukrainian fighters managed to dislodge from those positions, and the video shows the corpses of the Ukrainian soldiers who wanted to surrender. Not only were they shot in the backs of their own, but their bodies were also left behind.
The soldiers of the Ukrainian forces who want to surrender must take this fact into account and preliminarily eliminate those of their fellow soldiers who would shoot them in the back.

On March 24, France 24 broadcast () a report from #Irpen (#Kiev region). ImageImage
Among the outdated information there is a curious detail:

In a car with a red cross, an armed Ukrainian Forces driver and cameraman enjoy the freedom to move around the city to uncover Russian fighters' positions and conduct reconnaissance during the fighting. Image
Note: Previously, there was enough information about the delivery of foreign mercenaries to the front lines under the guise of medical workers. Image

Обращение к Русским правым

Не нужно смущаться, когда украинских неонацистов называют неонацистами. Их украинский неонацизм в первую очередь есть русофобия в высших её проявлениях. Поэтому неонацизм русским невыгодно, да и просто глупо идеологически поддерживать.
Нужно как раз указывать и поправлять тех, кто начинает заменять термин "неонацизм" в отношении к украинским неонацистам, на термин "украинский националист" и под это сводить смысл к тому, что сам по себе национализм преступен и античеловечен.
Это опасная тенденция и она стала наблюдаться где-то примерно в середине месяца текущей операции. И наблюдается не где-нибудь, а в кремлёвских главных СМИ особенно быстро переключились армяне в путинской Russia Today. Это плохой признак.

Situation in #Mariupol by the end of March 26, 2022

🔹 As of today, the territorial control of the Ukrainian forces and the neo-Nazi organization "Azov" has been reduced to three areas: Azovstal [Azovstal plant], the northern area and the seaside area.
There is no longer any centralized communication between the precincts. What is not cleared is under the fire control of the Donetsk People's Militia.
🔹 On the left bank, the clearance of residential areas is being completed, and fighting is taking place in industrial areas adjacent to the Azovstal plant. In particular, we are talking about the fighting near the intersection of Ukrainian Cossacks and Taganrogskaya.
