May 1st is international comminist day, ie mayday. It is all about how fast the ground dries.

Memorial day is the outer range, although Hitler's Operation Barbarosa was on June 22nd.

Face it Russia is going to sort out biden and the Ukraine/Crimea sometime between April 30th, to May 31st. Putin may go earlier and he may go later. The massive combat exercises on April 30th are a HUGE DOT.
All things considered, a go date of April 30th is reasonable.

that date would screw up the big victory day celebration on may 7 which they need to whip up patriotic fervor for what is apparently being planned. so i say, any time after may 7....

Critical month: Russians put under arms nationwide - Russian public television talks about nuclear strike - Calls reservists

Translated from Greek

For the first time since the dissolution of the USSR, Russian Defence Minister S. Shoigu put the Russian war machine on "red alert" nationwide by the end of April.

Russia is simulating a pan-European or even a world war by putting even its nuclear triad on a war alert.


On standby and the nuclear triad together the entire Russian Army until the end of April

Thus, strategic bombers carrying nuclear missiles, intercontinental nuclear missiles, submarines were ordered to be placed on nuclear alert as provided for by Russian military doctrine.

This means a first nuclear strike and the possibility of a second counter-attack nuclear strike in the event of engagement with NATO.


A total of 4,048 exercises of various levels will take place by the end of the month, including 812 bilateral exercises in 101 training centres and 520 facilities of the Russian Armed Forces.

The Russians are running scenarios of a global showdown with NATO. The exercises will be carried out by 30,000 paratroopers, i.e. the entire force that has been transferred to Crimea and the border with Ukraine


War readiness concerns the whole of Russia: All Military Regions, the Northern Fleet, the Far East, the islands of Kuriles and Kamsaka.

The strange thing about Russian military mobilization is the "nationwide level" and nuclear mobilization. Until now, such exercises have been conducted by Military Region. That is no longer the case now.

Russian public television: Nuclear strike to comply with NATO!
However, in a terrifying public report, russian public television "Russia 1" spoke of a nuclear strike. They said:

"If there is a possible escalation in Ukraine, then a nuclear strike is on the agenda. This will make Americans afraid and we will do whatever we want."

Ukraine calls reservists

Ukraine just now officially started calling reservists.

According to information from Kiev, about 100,000 reservists are on the recruitment lists in a total of 25 territorial defence brigades belonging to the Ukrainian Defence Ministry.

Ukrainian Military Espionage reported what WarNews247 has revealed for days: that Russia is transferring forces from all its Military Regions, Central, Western and Eastern.

At the same time, the Ukrainian president revealed that 28 Ukrainians have been killed since July, 10 in the last days and 3 in the last 24 hours!

It has become known that one Ukrainian soldier was killed by mortar and the second by a mine.

The Americans are now worried.

Americans have been worried for 48 hours, and they're showing it.

"We will continue to observe russian forces gathering next to the border with Ukraine, especially in Crimea and in the southeast.

The Russians' intention is not
clear to us; this is something to worry about," the Pentagon spokesman said.

Talks with the Minsk Group are over

The Ukrainian delegation participating in the Tripartite Contact Group shall withdraw.

The group will no longer participate and will no longer travel to Minsk for negotiations on a peaceful settlement of disputes in Donbass.

This was confirmed by Ukrainian Olexiy Reznikov, Deputy Prime Minister.

It's all about conflict...

Russia's Army Begins Massive 'Combat Readiness' Inspection As Ukraine Tensions Soar

BY TYLER DURDEN
ZERO HEDGE
TUESDAY, APR 06, 2021 - 01:20 PM

At a moment of soaring tensions over the renewed Ukraine crisis and amid accusations out of Kiev and the Biden administration that the Kremlin is saber-rattling over heightened fighting in the Donbass region, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced Tuesday the start of combat readiness checks, according to RIA.

This is expected to involve armed forces exercises across all military districts of the country, according to his statement. Typically such preparedness drills and inspections assess the ability of the military to ensure the nation's security for a potential heightened state of alert.

While this particular readiness check is being described as "planned" (as opposed to prior 'surprise' or 'snap' inspections) - there's little doubt the Pentagon and US allies will be watching very closely, given the Kremlin was this month charged with provocatively transferring some 4,000 troops to Crimea and the border region with Ukraine. This has resulted in threats and counter-threats between Moscow and Kiev, with the Russians further warning NATO not to send any Western forces into Ukraine as it would trigger a severe reaction.

Military analysis site Defence Blog has further details as follows:

The ministry described the drill as a "massive inspection", to check combat readiness on the territory of all military districts and the Northern Fleet, in the Far North, on the Kuril Islands and Kamchatka.
The tests began amid concern over Russian military activity in Crimea and eastern Ukraine.
Currently there's widespread speculation and debate over just what Putin's intentions are with the latest armed forces build-up. The additional forces essentially stayed in the region following recent military exercises.

Of course, Washington hawks took it to mean nefarious imminent moves against Ukraine are in the works - or at least additional support to Russian-backed separatists in Ukraine's east. Here's where things stand as explained by Defense One, which maintains the latest maneuvers are all about "warning" and "messaging" the West in a preemptive manner:

Recent ceasefire violations by Russian-backed forces in Ukraine and reinforcements of regular troops on the Russian side of the border don’t mean Moscow is preparing a major advance or even seriously trying to move the line of conflict, Ukraine officials and experts said. But they do show Vladimir Putin’s continued efforts to exercise control over Kiev’s affairs and peel off its international support.
Over the last several weeks, unverified social media posts show Russian heavy equipment moving closer to the Ukranian border, including howitzers, advanced anti-aircraft missiles and radar, and even an advanced air assault division The moves prompted a Friday phone call between the U.S. President Joe Biden and Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky as well as calls between the U.S. State and Defense senior officials and their Ukranian counterparts.

The Russian government has called this mobilization part of routine exercises, an explanation that has failed to impress many observers. But that doesn’t necessarily mean a repeat of Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea.
Meanwhile military drills in Crimea have been ongoing...

And a senior Ukrainian government official was cited in the same report as saying, "This is nothing but the usual Russian tactics—to escalate tension in order to gain momentum and to dissuade the West from supporting Ukraine."
The official further concluded with this caveat: "You can always expect that such a major buildup of military forces may lead to a serious escalation of hostilities provoked by Russia. But we always prefer diplomatic and political solutions."

I keep thinking about what Putin was saying back in 2016, that if Clinton won the election it would be the start of WW3. Now Biden is in charge and they may be thinking its "go time". Now they are about to liberate Eastern Ukraine before NATO has a chance to get any more entrenched.

I believe you are absolutely correct.
