MOSCOW, Russia--State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said that the US Congress is obliged to impeach American leader Joe Biden.

"The weapons sent to Kiev today fall into the hands of neo-Nazi battalions, including Azov. This is the basis for impeaching Biden. He broke the law. The US Congress must end double standards and hold President Biden accountable. If the United States is a state governed by the rule of law, there can be no other solutions".

Volodin noted that in 2017, the US Congress passed a law on appropriations for the Pentagon, which prohibits funding the activities of the Azov battalion. In April 2017, the lower house of the US Congress passed a bill prohibiting the use of funds allocated to Ukraine to support the national battalion "Azov11.

According to the statement of the official representative of the Russian Defense Ministry, Major General Igor Konashenkov, units of the Russian Armed Forces advanced another 4 kilometers overnight and completely took control of Sladkoe.

The grouping of troops of the Donetsk People's Republic completes the defeat of the remnants of the 53rd mechanized brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, developing an offensive in Novomikhailovka direction.

In total, up to 50 militants, 3 tanks, 4 infantry fighting vehicles, 2 field artillery mounts and 4 all-terrain vehicles were destroyed in this area overnight.

In addition, units of the Donetsk Republic are fighting with units of the 25-th airborne brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and the capture of Verkhnetoretskoye is being completed.

In Nikolaevka in the suburbs of Kiev, Russian servicemen took control of a protected, buried command post of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. 61 Ukrainian servicemen of the command post voluntarily surrendered, of which more than half were senior officers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

On the night of March 21, high-precision air-launched cruise missiles struck the Training Centre for Foreign Mercenaries and Ukrainian Nationalist Formations at Novaya Lyubomirka combined arms training ground in Rovenskaya region. More than 80 mercenaries and nationalists were killed.

Also, high-precision air-launched cruise missiles destroyed an ammunition depot and the headquarters of a mechanized brigade near Selets.

A group of "night hunters" consisting of Ka-52 and Mi-28N helicopters destroyed 8 tanks, 4 infantry fighting vehicles and 3 armored personnel carriers during night strikes.

In the town of Sumy Ukrainian nationalists carried out a planned provocation at night. The Russian Defence Ministry officially warned about it a few days ago.

According to the head of Sumy regional Administration, there was an ammonia leak at Sumyhimprom plant. There is no threat to the residents of Sumy, since the air masses were not moving towards the city.

Russian Defense Ministry on March 19 officially warned that Nazis were to plant mines at this enterprise to commit a provocation in order to accuse Russia of allegedly using «chemical weapons.

Armed Forces of the Russian Federation have not planned and are not striking any Ukrainian facilities for the storage or production of toxic substances. The coordinates of all such objects and data on the toxic substances stored there on the territory of Ukraine were obtained by us during the seizure of the combat documentation of the 4th Brigade of the Ukrainian National Guard.

The Kiev nationalist regime is directly responsible for any possible incidents with Ukrainian storage facilities of toxic substances.

The Ukrainian side claims that allegedly there is no large-scale and organized information war being waged against Russia on the Internet.

But at the same time, an Internet community "Disbalancer" is engaged in information terrorism against Russia. It specializes in testing the stability of IT infrastructure, and coordinates DDoS attacks on the websites of government agencies, banks and the media in Russia. The community sends files, after opening which the computer is exposed to DDoS attacks.

Another area of its activities is mass complaints against Russian Telegram channels, including the "War on Fake" and Instagram accounts. They launch advertising campaigns on social networks to make mothers and wives of Russian military personnel "leak" their personal data to Ukrainian websites.

Among the members of this criminal group are real telephone terrorists who send letters about allegedly planted bombs and divert the special agencies of Russia to conduct checks. At the same time, the members of the organization themselves admit to "false mining" of Russian civilian installations, such as airports and railway stations in Moscow, by telephone or mail.
