Posted on 07/18/2014 5:55:43 PM PDT by UMCRevMom@aol.com
Last night terrorists started firing Lisichansk refinery from rocket launchers. As a result, fuel oil tanks caught fire. When this force ATU sighting of this object leads. The power ATO did not fire on this location. At this moment the fire is continuing.
Today the ATO forces with artillery preparation, launched a major large-scale offensive on the strategic Ridge Lisichansk, Severodonetsk. Recall that the area is controlled by the gangs Brain/ Think tank.
Ukrainian law enforcers probably were planning to cut off the group think tank from Lugansk, but did not take into account the factors which we predicted earlier. Started a counterattack from Gorlovki and SMT. in the direction of Luhansk and Dzerdinska. Active forces of ATO, have resulted in the acceleration of the hour "h". However, reinforcements arrived from Russia through Krasnopartizansk for the Group of terrorists in Donetsk. In turn, to strengthen groups of terrorists, in the town of Luhansk reinforcements arrived from Donetsk.
In view of the weakening of the forces ATO near Sverdlovsk as well as the beginning of active hostilities in Lisichansk you can expect a terrorists strike at ARTEMOVSK, Kostyantynivka and Druzhkovka. This should be considered/taken into account.
Also note that in the northward direction of impact, the terrorists are in a less favorable position. Between Dzerdzhinskom and Gorlovka is created quite a powerful fortified district with: blown overpass and mined the main means of communication. From the north Gorlovki impassable terrain, there are only a few roads where vehicles can pass without problems. Militants are well aware of these roads, and it is likely that they have created problems for them: mining, shelling areas, which have bombardment of the sites area already with increasing accuracy. Next comes the village. Lugansk, where there is a network of reservoirs, there is created an impenetrable area with the passage only possible on the bridge on route M03, which has long been mined. In addition, near the bridge area has been built fortified, trenches, bunkers and armored vehicles in the trenches. That confidence in their advantageous position enables terrorists to cause counterattacks against the forces of ATO, thus delaying some of the forces for an assault/storm the airport Donetsk in particular, have repeatedly sounded warnings that militants are preparing for a general assault on the airport, in order to open a springboard for a possible transfer of forces from the Russian Federation . Also In the ongoing assault continues on the airport in Lugansk. Where terrorists have the same objectives. After regrouping ATO, the situation on the southern border is completely out of control, which allows militant fighters to move large groups from the Russian Federation. In this context, we recall that in the Rostov region. to the border with Ukraine keeps moving columns Russian GRAD MLRS.
Also, the arrival of new technology in Donetsk State by Snow and Tereza, where, as we have previously reported, are grouped significant militant forces. You can expect action in the North direction. Girkin-Shooters ready to play all-in, he knows that the best defense is attack.
In turn, we will not disclose variants of optimal strikes against terrorists in Lugansk and Donetsk, which could cause power ATO hope that the competent person of them are already well aware, but for onlookers and let it remain enemies intrigue ...
INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS BY EVENTS IN UKRAINE (UPD) Death over an area of ATO airliner MH17 with 298 people on board sparked a legitimate, strong reaction from the international community. The OSCE Permanent Council adopted a declaration calling for an independent investigation and to provide access to experts to the site of the tragedy. On the initiative of the United Kingdom, was convened by the UN Security Council meeting, at which most of the countries also demanded an investigation into the loss of an airliner.
Most of the countries on the UN Security Council shied away from direct accusations of Russia, and her charges of "DNR" to the crime. Iconic performances were by the U.S. and Britain. Americans have made it clear that information about the circumstances of the tragedy, in particular, that the plane was hit by a "surface to air" missile from the territory controlled by the separatists. It was also said by President Barack Obama directly. He noted that [terrorist/separatists] have the greatest control over the situation in the Donbas and has urged Putin to use his influence with the separatists to promote peace in Ukraine. In the same spirit, the United Kingdom spoke and was supported by the UN Security Council.
Event in the sky over the Donbas noticeably affected building relationships Chancellor of Germany with the Russian president. Merkel was forced to call upon the French authorities to cease exports to Russia Federation of Mistral helicopter carriers and declare minimized Russian-German cooperation in one of the military projects. Kremlin went on the defensive, completely/flatly denying involvement and vzvalivaya/ projecting blame on Kiev.
In addition to the general declarations and demands to investigate the incident, have not yet taken any practical steps towards Ukraine and the perpetrators of the disaster Earlier discussion announced on the introduction of the conflict zone peacekeepers did not take place. In general, this event did not add sympathy of the international community to Ukraine, but only drew attention to the danger of military crisis at hand in Europe. If the commitment to contribute to the resolution of the crisis and now, it is not yet clear whether their plans will coordinate with the interests of our country.

This largely coincides with info from the rebel sites and tweeters.
Kiev seems to be increasingly desperate to relieve the units trapped in the south, and launched large attacks to try and take the pressure off of them.
Rebels are claiming the refinery was hit by Kiev grad shelling, though there have been some reports that a Scarab-B SS-21 Surface-to-surface missile was used, fired from Kramatorsk. Poroshenko did say he would begin using “Special Weapons” last week.
Kiev cannot keep the huge numbers of casualties they are taking quiet forever, and if the South Pocket falls, with thousands lost, IMO, the current government goes with it.
It is “All-in” for Kiev at this point, now that the rebels have attained parity, and regained some initiative.
From the VK page of the Lugansk Militia, 28 minutes ago:
