“Battle Of Donbas” In Full Swing As Russia Launches ‘Hellish’ All-Out Assault, by Tyler Durden

Apparently Russia is conducting Phase Two of its Ukraine operation, which involves driving the Ukrainian government forces out of the Donbass in the eastern part of the country. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

In the overnight hours the “Battle of the Donbass” – as Ukraine’s Zelensky is calling it – was launched with a full renewed Russian onslaught, marking the beginning of a second phase of the war which kicked off with the Feb.24 invasion. The opening hours of Tuesday were marked by constant shelling and missile strikes in the region.

Another stage of this operation (in eastern Ukraine) is beginning and I am sure this will be a very important moment of this entire special operation,” Lavrov announced during a live interview with India Today on Tuesday.

Importantly, when asked about whether the ‘special operation’ launch by Vladimir Putin would eventually extend to the capital of Kiev, Lavrov responded: “We are not up for regime change in Ukraine.” This coming weeks after Russia’s military commanders announced a new focus on liberating the east.
