Last night, American HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems struck not just in the Donbass, but in the zone in the village of Yelenovka, where most of the prisoners from the Azov regiment who surrendered in Mariupol were kept. According to official data, 40 Ukrainian prisoners of war were killed and 75 wounded. And 8 more employees of the colony …
The first reason seemed to lie on the surface. In recent days, the “Azovites” have been actively talking and began to talk about their military crimes – reprisals against prisoners and civilians. The facts for Kyiv and the “world community” are unpleasant, but not fatal, can you survive, for the first time or what?
The image loss from Kyiv’s cold-blooded murder of its brother-soldiers will overshadow their confessions a hundredfold.
I will assume that the Ukrainian troops were not at all directly related to the attack on the barracks in Yelenovka.
American HIMARS missile systems supplied to Ukraine serve NATO calculations. They themselves choose the time and routes of movement.
And guarded by American missile launchers, as the Russian Ministry of Defense put it, “PMCs close to the Pentagon.”

And it is absolutely certain that none of the Ukrainian military is engaged in the selection of targets for HIMARS. Because these installations were “let to drive” to Ukraine not in order for it to defeat Russia. No. NATO is primarily interested in many parameters of the work of Russian air defense. Often, the work of HIMARS is covered by Ukrainian Smerch and Uragan multiple rocket launchers. But even in this case, Ukrainians are used in the dark. Most likely, the Americans themselves determined such a goal as a barrack with prisoners of war “Azov”. What for?
The battalion, and then the Azov regiment, has always been an extraterritorial military formation, often in conflict with both the Kyiv security forces and the political authorities. Who actually controlled Azov? Obviously, these are the people who killed dangerous witnesses tonight, with weapons that no one else had access to.
