Regarding the Ukraine’s campaign of Liberal-Progressive Terrorism for Global Democracy in Zaporozhia and Kherson, the above/headline photo shows the blown-up car with a body (some distance away) blurred out; below is a better shot of the body, for any doubters.
This is/was Dmitrii Slavuchenko, an activist with the (now banned in the Ukraine) eccentric oppositionist Party of Shariy, who was more recently appointed as Director of the Youth Policy Department of the Kherson Civil-Military Administration. It looks like he may have gotten out of his car and walked some distance after the explosion, before expiring.
To my few remaining readers (I don’t think many are left) on Capitol Hill and in the media—thanks for sticking around. I know my “more balanced picture of this conflict” must be painful to many of you. You know, there are two sides to every conflict.
Ukraine’s defense of Lisichansk sector is disintegrating – news coming too fast for me to update you
Word is that Russian and/or Lugansk forces may have taken the (recently decommissioned by cruise missiles) Lisichansk refinery, in which case, they would be in the southwestern suburbs of Lisichansk city already.
Not a bad performance for a corrupt, “hollow force” that has no food, no fuel, no competent officers, no radios, no professional sergeants, is just a bunch of 18 year-old drunks and heroin junky rapists…..
…..and is led by a commander-in-chief who (by all credible accounts in the British press) is dying from 4th stage cancer of the blood, lungs, skin, heart, muscles, hair, nails, spleen, appendix, scalp, eyes, eyebrows, eyelashes, wrinkles, nose, nostrils, sinuses, toupée, ovaries, cervix, @$$hole, navel, soul, psyche, id, ego, etc.
Below is a video of a Ukrainian platoon that surrendered in the Gorskoe-Zolotoe cauldron overnight or today. I really can’t keep up with the massive volume of “bad news for the Ukraine” as it’s coming in, but here is just a taste of what’s to come.
It was the same in Mariupol. First you see groups of tens of prisoners, then hundreds and then the whole thing comes down.
I’m not actually sure where the below photo was taken (may be near Slaviansk, not Lisichansk), but it looks like just another little NATO-Ukrainian donation (one of many many) to the Russian cause. Brandon, please send more Javelins!!! (Or NLAWS, Panzerfausts, the Swedish stuff, whatever.)
It’s clear, there has never been an army with more “direct fire” firepower than the Ukraine’s. Ever.

All of the government employees in the newly-Russian areas will have to learn to check their cars for bombs every time they get in, like in Ireland during The Troubles.
Did anyone else notice the identical twins in the captured Ukros video?
This gives lie to the old Rus proverb – man is wolf to man…
Great reporting, Jacob.
Russia must win this war decisively; then force an uncompromising settlement on the West. Perhaps, this might bring the Europeans to their senses; to recognise, that America is their real, in fact, their only enemy. If not, we are doomed to decades of strife and war which will begin with China. A war from which the Europeans have absolutely nothing to gain.
What is a progressive to think?
1). They are killing pregnant women.
2). It’s no longer a right to kill pregnant women’s children.
Apart from the info, I do enjoy your vigorous black humour and uncompromising directness. Thank you. I hope that US agency you told us about is not being spiteful. As the man said during the French revolution ‘it is always dangerous to be right when everybody else is wrong.’
Thank you very much Mr. Dreizin
Consider the orange coin with the second letter of the alphabet, it´s a bargain right now – Thank us in 10 years.
Great update on the geopolitical scene! We like ALL the topics, e-cO-No-mIk, pAn-Da-miK, in-VesT-Ink, u-S-e-leC-zuN and of course the worst topic of mankind W-aaa-Rrrrrhhh.

A pariah couple from DK-RUS
“Regarding the Ukraine’s campaign of Liberal-Progressive Terrorism for Global Democracy…” A fitting heading to describe the nature and workings of the current beastly puppet, found in the midst of the worldwide poisonous cauldron, being fed and stirred up by the infernal western mafia.
(Dreizin’s writing inventiveness shows that the freer the people the richer the language)
What that video shows is a citizen militia and most definitely not a regular army cadre. Those men have no business being in harms way at the front lines. In any sane military organization, those men would be serving in support units (transportation, maintenance, cooks, and burial details). This war should never have happened but for the puppet masters that manipulated Zelensky into refusing all form of negotiation over the past two years. So, who do we hold accountable for the slaughter of tens of thousands of good men that have been sacrificed as cannon fodder to a corrupt grift being run out of DC. And when the reality of the 50+ bioweapon labs becomes known, CENSORED PER COMMENTS POLICY will be too good for them.
Re the photo of Ukrainian soldiers who presumably have surrendered, all I can say is that they do not look like hardened military types. They look kind of hang-dog. I’m happy for them that they were able to surrender and not lose their lives for nothing.
I don’t have anything important to add to the current debacle in the Donbass, but would like to say
1) Thanks for an insightful -and occasionally lighthearted approach to this otherwise grotesque situation
2) The knight’s dance and Great Gate of Kiev are both delightful sound backgrounds – have you considered Mars from The Planets ?
It seems to me that after Russia defeats Ukraine, NATO will be in trouble because it will be shown to be incapable of protecting Europe.
“… protecting Europe?” From whom? From what? Sitting on the (ideological) fence is (mentally) uncomfortable and (emotionally) precarious. Russia needs and wants Russians, millions of Russians, to be added to its immense real estate; Russia neither needs nor wants an inch of any foreign territory. The western criminal mafia – the puppeteers – know the truth of this matter. What this cabal also know is their being soaked with envy of and greed for the wealth of that country. Those are the demons driving them to madness.
Germany is gonna want Russian gas next winter and as soon as the outcome of this becomes clear, there is no reason for them to sacrifice. Biden is already officially and unofficially reducing sanctions. Officially Russian grain and fertilizer. We never stoped buying Russian oil.
Oddly enough, the NYT confirmed Russia’s explanation for reducing gas ,,, Canadian sanctions on some sort of compression equipment. Which are being removed. Russia has never failed to honor energy contracts, so it’s not like this is beyond the point of a big never mind.
The truth is, making Ukraine part of NATO/EU was never a European dream. It was always a neocon fantasy. The neocons need some external event to get their projects off the ground. 9/11 was the catalyst for Iraq/Afghanistan and covid/Trump fueled Ukraine fever in the US.
If the EU wanted to fix large, corrupt underperforming countries, they have Italy and Greece.
Russia’s BTG’s have made a strong showing, but Putin doesn’t have enough to take Ukraine in its entirety. They aren’t going to fight too hard for territory they wont be able to annex. Its not that Russia couldn’t win on the battle field … they have to keep it. Ukraine is simply too large.
I’m to old now to be a soldier, but if I was younger and in the Ukrainian army, I would surrender to the Russians at the first opportunity. The poor Orthodox Ukrainians of central and southern Ukraine are pawns that are being used as cannon fodder and it pains me to see my people killing each other for no good reason. Jacob why doesn’t Russia surround Ukraine with Russian military, in effect making the whole country into a giant cauldron and preventing anything and anybody from getting into Ukraine. They could then allow anyone to leave but not allow any enemy military equipment or personnel from entering the country. Lviv and Kiev need to feel some pain or this thing could be going on for a long time.
Thank you for providing the truth. I no longer waste time on western main stream media for news about what is really happening in the Ukraine.
We’re not far from The 100’th Monkey.
The rate of Ukraine fall will escalate – just as it does in each event, the next event will follow the 100th monkey.

Good ongoing summary!
It is worth noting your country’s leadership position on Elensky and this conflict. If your leaders like mine support, approve and endorse his actions then its fair in my opinion to assume that they would be just as reckless with our lives as Elensky is with his peoples.
How is it possible that we hear almost no voices of reason for EU or USA cultural or academic establishment?
Even when 2003. was bombed there were some voices of discontent.
Is it possible that they have all lost their minds?
Yes they have lost ther minds. It happed @ University. We are truly Fu#ked.
There are a few but, unfortunately, nobody within the abysmal leadership class in the West is listening (when one steps back and considers the individuals in power today in places like my native Canada it’s truly frightening… it can’t end well when we’re being les by such people).
Prof. John Mearsheimer has been one of the voices of reason. He has a recent lecture that is a nice follow-up to the one he did back in 2016 (now with 27M YouTube views). I listened to the 2016 lecture back in January (I think it had under 1M views at the time) and it was one of the early resources that helped me to get a better understanding of the Ukraine mess.
Here’s the link to his talk a couple of weeks back. Worth a listen…
About that last talk by John Mearsheimer. I would also add that the questions (specifically questions, not answers!) are worth a listen to see how “It happened @ University. We are truly Fu#ked.” Many “esteemed” academicians cannot even formulate a question clearly and concisely.
Martin K in Canada eh? Victoria maybe? If so, good to see your eyes are open. Like I was telling you, if it is you, when S.H.T.F., come my way. Bring your own ammo and pea shooter.
> How is it possible that we hear almost no voices of reason for EU or USA cultural or academic establishment?
Because conservatives foolishly ceded control of our institutions to these delusional clowns decades ago. If you lose control of the education of children you lose control of the narrative. That simple.
It is possible because censorship and disinformation in US corporate media is truly unprecedented. The corrupt War party (both DNC and GOP) propaganda is at its height but reality is becoming VERY obvious – in large part thanks to Dreisin Report also.
There are as many viewpoints to all conflicts as there are viewer each minute they are viewing. “Two sides” during a war is somewhat misleading. If it is defenders versus offenders, strictly, then each defender is on the defender side, and each offender offends and is thereby on the offending side. If it is two offending sides fighting over defenseless producers, or a turf battle, then there are at least 3 sides, not two.
Very sad to see those Ukranian POW’s – what a raf-tag bunch of obviously under-resourced and thoroughly demoralised (not) soldiers. Here in Australia, very little being reported though we certainly are not getting “brave Ukraine winning” but rather “brutal Putin to blame for food shortages and skyrocketting inflation.”
Another brilliant report – thank you Jacob
That is one sad collection of prisoners whose misfortune was to be Ukrainians.
The misfortune has been to not have 5k$ spare for the ticket to Europe. In Natsi Germany they would call ’em Volkssturm. Well almost, seems no disabled Veterans from Afghanistan war (the 80ies one) amongst ’em.
Very sorry and perplexed to learn that your followers and readers are dwindling. Others with far less talent and gumption appear to be thriving.
This in itself is more of an observation and diagnosis of America’s ill health than of your truth and vision.
Incidentally, it seems a manifestation of the fallacy that we must be tolerant of everything to insist that everybody’s forms of expression resemble Girl Scout Sunday School. I am criticized for being “too acerbic.” Well, OK, I am blasting forth against those willfully perpetrating moral enormities, and it is El Stupid-O to act namby-pamby about forces–even unto obvious treasons such as selling high office and stealing elections–that are destroying America and Western culture.
Thanks for your support, but who told you dwindling or whatever? The blog is (sadly) stuck in place, but the youtube channel is doing phenomenally well. Overall, it’s growth.
Thank God at least you tube is growing. I also read it to mean there was a decline which totally bummed me out. I have now exhibited a large sigh of relief. God this country needs truth, and from what I have seen it is very difficult to break through. I love your blog and you tube and wish you only the best, and a cheerful keep it up, and the more you provide, the happier I am. Thank you, Jacob.
Please read again the quote from the posting: “To my few remaining readers (I don’t think many are left) on Capitol Hill and in the media—thanks for sticking around”. Remaining readers on Capitol Hill and in the media!
In the long term, Russia has to address sanctions. Unless Russia believes the future is Africa and Asia and can live without European and American consumers, or that it can weather sanctions 20 years plus from a victory date and a future generation will forget about the war and drop the sanctions. The only thing is, I can’t figure out how BRICS currency replaces the dollar. Not without war/more war is my guess. All the way to nuclear weapons use.
The African and Asian markets are much larger than the collective West, just not as lucrative right now. But China (and the evil Russkies!) are making inroads all over Africa through building infrastructure and developing industries. They’re providing ways for those markets to grow through this method, while often getting natural resources as payment in the meantime. Russia is already doing well under the sanction regime; they’ve already found new markets in China and India, etc., for oil and wheat, not to mention all the metals and rare earth materials they have. The ruble is TOO strong as of now, according to the Russian economic managers. Europe and the US are the ones heading for disastrous inflation and resource droughts. The sanctions have boomeranged on us. Scapegoating Putler for price hikes won’t work, especially when gasoline in the US has never been higher. Food processing plants here are being burned down! Hell, I’m worried about OUR survival, not theirs.
Europe is a basket case and the US has only war as its last export. Russia should turn off the gas and bid the EU and NATO good bye.
Lots of pictures of foreign supplied weapons but the question is do they work? Seems Uncle Scam was more than happy to dump a bunch of expired systems on these poor slobs.
Actually the British media have already said Putin dead –
As he seems to have been resurrected since then, are they actually trying to tell us he is the Messiah?
I guess ammo might be slightly helpful for all those “direct fire” weapons. Ah well, that is for the Russians to worry about. The sooner this whole conflict is over the sooner the Ukraine can start putting itself back together- if that means with Poland- well, good luck with that. I hope that the CNN and similar crews set up to show these false flags keep being so obvious that the message gets to the West that the Ukrainians will do anything to keep this going- that is, the ones NOT CANNON FODDER. Latest word was pulling people off the streets including women and convicts (that should work well).
Thanks for your great and accurate updates
Delirium by ISW, Ukraine while being severely outgunned somehow has “forced Russia to endure weeks of gruelling attrition” lol
“Ukraine must recapture all of its territory to win, so losses of towns can feel like the war is slipping
But Ukraine is waging a sophisticated war effort that is non-linear. The fight for Severodonetsk created effects that favor #Ukraine across the E & S” https://twitter.com/JennyCafarella/status/1540299259945406465
Assuming Russia seeks to acquire territory beyond the Donbas, do you believe
the DPR and LPR militias will carry on fighting alongside the RAF once the liberation of the Donbas is wrapped up? They will, after all, have achieved their main objective. Love your lurid prose style btw.
Head of DPR Pushilin in an RT interview few days ago said, “We’re not interested only in western Ukraine, I’d give it to Poland & Hungary. Stopping at Dnieper = leaving a problem for future generations” sounds like a hint at eventual Kiev encirclement
Dunno what they’ll decide to do but it’s clear that the LPR and DPR could easily become the best armed small places in Europe if they decide to incorporate into their arsenals all the NATO junk left behind by surrendering or deserting Ukies!
They’re already must becthe best infantry in Europe. They’d already beaten the Uki army back in 2015, now along with the Chechens and Russian AirPower, etc and rotating Russian infantry they’ve routed the best part of the new much enlarged NATO trained and armed Ukraine army, which is at full mobilisation,,etc,,’. There ought to be an instructive book about them.
I with you till the end Dreizen! Don’t worry about the haters….hey and if shit hits the fan and you need a foxhole buddy lmk I am an excellent shot. First deer at 9 y/o , 275 yards w/ .306
Keep it up Mate
Thank God!! I am so heartily sick and tired of seeing pics/video of dead Ukranian soldiers. Surrender and temporary captivity is an absolute blessing for these poor let down souls.
Absolutely. They will live and return to their families. They will live better lives under Russian rule than under the tyranny of Oligarchs and NATO. The territory of the former Ukraine is rich in resources and intelligent, strong people. These beaten and sorry men will build a better society for themselves and their children and grandchildren. These men need Russia and Russia needs them. This is the same lesson the Chechens learnt.
If the EU wants Ukraine – well they deserve them. The EU has made a complete mockery of their ‘higher ideals’ with their giving Mr N (tilted you know what letter) candidate status!
This ( terrorism ) is the (in)famous “game changer” – an attempt to delegitimize the new Russian aligned government. The thought wasn’t properly articulated, because it was a hunch. Alex Mercouris said that Europe would not be happy with a guerrilla war – and attendant drug, weapon and human trafficking.
Not sure how Russia solves the problem on the Nasi threat, may have to de-nasify Europe as some Russians have suggested.
Best end game is the proposals that Russia gave the U.S. and NATO in December 2021.
FWIW, RWA ( Kiril ) has:
This comment about war out comes – appears to support “maximalist” goals:
Genuinely don’t understand the “haha Russia wanted to win in three days” comments. If we assume that such an expectation of mass surrenders + capitulation existed (which very well may be), this would have been the best strategic outcome for Ukraine & the worst for Russia.
IMO it’s glaringly obvious that a short & bloodless Russian regime change spec-op would have been the ideal outcome for the West because they could’ve just done what they’re best at – NGO infiltration & buying politicians, to be in a better position for the inevitable round 2.
So, de-militarization and de-nasification, it is
Excellent scattergun synopsis of a shattered sundered army of (The) Ukraine!
President Alzheimer should send the Ukes some white flags. Good grief.
The number of kidney transplants in europe is skyrocking..
Don’t understand your comment on kidney transplants…
Many more Ukr. troops hiding in hospitals. mehtinks he is saying…
