U.S. Admiral Surrenders To Russia In Mariupol, Ukraine by Dandal: 5:47am On May 16
Numerous reports have been circulating much of today (Sunday, May 15, 2022) claiming that a U.S. Military Commander surrendered to Russian forces from the Azovstal Steel Mill in Mariupol, Ukraine. As of 6:17 PM EDT, a photo purported to be U.S. Navy Admiral Eric Olson, has been released allegedly showing the Admiral under arrest by Russian troops.

The photo, featured above, is claimed to be Admiral Eric T. Olsen.

From Wikipedia:
Eric Thor Olson (born January 24, 1952) is a retired United States Navy admiral who last served as the eighth Commander, U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) from July 2, 2007 to August 8, 2011. He previously served as Deputy Commander, U.S. Special Operations Command from 2003 to July 2007. Olson was the first Navy SEAL ever to be appointed to three-star and four-star flag rank, as well as the first naval officer to be USSOCOM's combatant commander.

He took command from Army General Bryan D. Brown in 2007.[1] Brown and Olson had served together at the SOCOM headquarters in Tampa for four years.

He retired from active duty on August 22, 2011 after over 38 years of service. He relinquished command of SOCOM to Admiral William H. McRaven the same day. Along with U.S. Admiral Olson (Ret'd), British Lieutenant Colonel John Bailey and 4 NATO military instructors also allegedly surrendered to Russia.

There is also news of Canadian, French, and Turkish military officers still hiding inside tunnels beneath the Azovstal Steel Mill in Mariupol.

What these men were allegedly doing there and who sent them there, is not yet known.

If confirmed by the Pentagon, the massive question this raises is why are U.S. military officers, and the military officers from other NATO countries, inside Ukraine at all, and who authorized them to participate in waging undeclared war upon Russia?

(Hal Turner Remark: I have reached out to the Pentagon Public Affairs Duty Officer via the off-hours/Weekend media contact telephone number, seeking Pentagon comment. The Duty Officer I spoke with requested I send them details via email, which has been done.

The article is asking what a retired military officer is doing in Ukraine. If he volunteered to fight for Ukraine, how is that NATO or US’ business?

Many of those military guys still in that azov steel are foreign mercenaries from the west. Most of them will start surrendering this week because the bombardment will be too much for them. grin

The western media lying houses dont talk about the war like before. Aljazeera is much concerned about their journalist that was killed, BBC talks more about Finland & Sweden joining NATO, CNN is outright lies & propaganda, so I don't bother myself with them. I will continue to say this, propaganda will not win you a war. undecided

Eastern Propaganda. Few ex US military personnel are fighting in Ukraine because Dept of Defense made it clear that joining would cause their payments and pensions to be cut.

Fake news. Wishful thinking. Eastern Propaganda

Well, the US won't confirm or deny such news.

With the amount of US weapon shiped to Ukraine, US military personnel will be on ground to train and coordinate the Ukrainians.

This guy was supposedly on the frontline fighting, not doing weapon coordination. The US isn’t obligated to confirm this news, it’s simple to find his family and verify the truth or lie.

Family in the US and they won't confirm anything.

Just recently, Russia released former U.S. Marine Trevor Reed.

There's a lot of Foreign countries fighting in Ukraine right now

Okay if it is an argument of been a volunteer but a high asset such as that nullifies that line of argument.
Such a price can not be seen to associate himself with such a behaviour

We don’t know yet
The Russia government have not released any statement.
Until Russia takes over all the plant, we don’t know how many Foreign fighters are there but the Commander of the Plant said over 600 need immediately medical assistance.
Pope, Turkey and France president have all tried to help them out but Russia want them to surrender.
Report few hours ago, Said some 10 Ukraine troops came out has Russia military are moving inside the plant area more

��Ukraine is winning the war in virtual world with the help of western media, but losing the war in the real world even after so many help from the West and US (in terms of money and weapons).


The comedian president has to wake up and understand the underlying evil agendas of the West and the US before the whole of Ukraine turns into ashes.


The people of Ukraine must realise that they are paying heavy price for being too ignorant electing puppet of of the West and the US as their president.

They must stand together to pull out this puppet president and elect someone who can lead the nation without falling into the traps of the west and the US before the whole of Ukraine vanish from the world map.

This is not a drill I repeat this is not a drill. For him to surrender I am sure preparations have been made for a diplomatic exchange.

The man is highly decorated and should have stayed back like the Samurais of ancient Japan, either falling in battle or by sepukun.

They are calling theire commanders out of retirement and sending them so that when captured they will say they went there on their own accord. Atleast all of these should tell us that there is a war being waged on Russia.
