Ukraine commits atrocities against the civilians on a daily basis, and in such quantity that it is almost impossible to keep up with all of them. It feels like the favourite sport of the Ukrainian army is to shoot at the civilian targets – not unlike the thinking of Grand Moff Tarkin when he chose the selection of the target for his shock and awe operation with the Death Star in the Star Wars franchise. One of the latest attacks was against the Russian territory, in Belgorod oblast, where one teenager was killed and 7 other people were wounded after the Ukrainian force shelled a village of no military significance there.
But al that pails in comparison to what Kiev and its USNATO backers are try to pull off – a large scale chemical terrorist act. Yesterday, as the chemical factory “Zarja” (meaning “Dawn”) near town Rubezhnoe (meaning “Frontier”) was liberated from the Ukrainian forces, Russian Electronic Warfare Forces managed to block a remote detonation of a huge number of explosives rigged around various containers and cisterns with acids and other deadly chemicals:
Thousands of tons of ammonia: how, during the retreat of the UAF, the Zarya chemical plant was mined in Rubezhnoye
May 16, 2022
The People’s Militia of the LPR told how the Armed Forces of Ukraine during their retreat mined the territory of the chemical plant for the production of explosives “Zarya” in the city of Rubezhnoye.
“We discovered that the enemy mined the warehouse with 49 tons of TNT and ammonium, which Ukrainian officers, on the instructions of Polish and American instructors, were going to undermine remotely when leaving positions at the plant,” the PM of the Luhansk People’s Republic said in a statement published on the Teleram channel.
As stated by the People’s Militia, the purpose of mining was detonation, and subsequently spraying in the air of 40 thousand tons of ammonia, nitric and sulfuric acids, benzene and other dangerous substances that were on the territory of the plant.
“In advance, in order to ensure the guaranteed explosion of tanks with toxic chemicals, Ukrainian militants carried out lining of railway trains with bags of ammonium and made additional mining of containers with the most dangerous reagents,” the People’s Militia added.
Thus, more than 300 thousand residents of the city could have ended up in the infected zone, and all forms of life would have guaranteed been destroyed in the radius of 20 kilometres from the epicentre of the explosion, they stressed in the People’s Militia. At the moment, the territory of the chemical enterprise is being examined and evidence of the criminal intent is being recorded.
Earlier, the correspondent of Zvezda told how the servicemen of the Russian Federation and the LPR liberated the Zarya plant from the UAF.
And as the above did not go Ukro-NATO’s way, they did something similar today on the territory still controlled by Kiev, albeit in a “smaller” scale, blowing up ammonium nitrate. Re-publishing from SputnikNews:
Russian MoD: Toxic Cloud Moving Towards Kramatorsk After Ukraine’s Special Forces Provocation

In the past, indiscriminate shelling by Ukrainian Armed Forces already led to the destruction of tankers full of chemicals and the leak of poisonous substances that endangered lives in the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR).
A poisonous cloud is currently moving towards the city of Kramatorsk after Ukrainian special forces detonated an explosive boosted by a tonne of ammonium nitrate in an act of provocation, the Russian Defence Ministry has stated. Kramatorsk is located in the part of the Donetsk region currently under the control of Ukrainian forces.
“The Kiev regime continues to organise false-flag attacks to accuse the Russian Armed Forces of allegedly using poisonous substances”, the ministry stated.
According to the Russian Defence Ministry, the detonation took place around 13:35 local time near the village of Mazanovka, not far from Kramatorsk and also in the territory controlled by Kiev’s forces. The resulting toxic cloud was as high as 1 kilometre, the ministry added.
The defence ministry also released aerial footage of the orange cloud coming from the site of the explosion.
The ministry recalled that it was not the first time that Ukraine had exploded a large amount of ammonium nitrate to accuse Russia of staging a chemical attack. On 11 May, Moscow reported a false-flag operation from the Kiev forces when a tanker with fertiliser was blown up at Dolgenkoe village in the Kharkov region.
Russian Armed Forces are taking part in a special military operation in Ukraine which was launched on 24 February by President Vladimir Putin. Moscow’s defence ministry has repeatedly stressed that it does not target civilian infrastructure, and only hits targets related to the main goals of the operation, which are the demilitarisation and de-Nazification of Ukraine.
Meanwhile in Odessa…
In Odessa, militants and the SBU take away people who called Russian numbers

Defense Ministry: in Odessa, militants and the SBU take away people who called Russian numbers
MOSCOW, May 16 — RIA Novosti. In Odeassa the militants of the territorial defence, together with employees of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) search, abuse, and then take away residents in an unknown direction, in whose phones they find calls to Russian numbers, said the head of the interdepartmental coordination headquarters of Russia for humanitarian response — the head of the National Center for Defence Management of Russia, Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev.
According to him, these raids are similar to the events in Kharkov, Nikolaev, Sumy and Chernigov.
“Citizens whose phones contain photo or video materials of the results of the defeat of Ukrainian military facilities by the Armed Forces of Russia, correspondence in messengers or calls to the numbers of Russian subscribers are subjected to physical violence, and are then taken away in an unknown direction. Nothing is known about the fate of these people to date,” the general added.
Mizintsev stressed that such actions of the Kiev regime once again demonstrate an inhumane attitude towards the fate of Ukrainian citizens and indicate complete disregard for all norms of morality and international humanitarian law.
“Once again we call on the countries of the so—called civilized West to stop turning a blind eye to the egregious facts of the crimes of the Kiev authorities against their own people,” he said.
