Southfront (sanctioned by the US Treasury Department)
Senior US Marine Corps Officer Expresses Admiration For The ‘Revolutionary’ Way In Which Russia Has Fought Its War In Ukraine ("The picture that has been presented of the war in Ukraine is completely at odds with the reality of the situation on the ground.  Surprisingly, information that supports this assertion, which totally undermines the Western media narratives regarding the war, is provided by an article in the August edition of the United States Marine Corps Gazette. Writing under under the pen name Marinus, a senior marine corps officer, provides an objective analysis of Russian military strategy since late February. It totally undermines the narratives provided by Western media and pro Washington politicians." Must-read)
