Overview of main theater of combat in the East of Ukraine: in the morning continued the battle for Gorlovka. The militants left the village.
Today the Group of terrorists has increased because additional convoy proceeded to Gorlovka engineering terrorists from Debalcevo. No accumulation of groups of fighters in the petrovske, where they pull together the forces of Snow and the Red beam. It means two possible options: either the strike preparation aside, either side of the Lisichansk city Gorlovka.
Lisichansk pockets of resistance still remain terrorists and this cannot be ignored, even by the official MEDIA and information on the complete capture of the city. Trimming area is not finished, and the final victory to speak still early. However, more ability to strike militants Within the stores. The liberation of the city complicated by a large number of industrial zones, as well as not yet covered paths diverge and militant approach road along the country lanes on the Seversky Donets River, as well as possible terrorist kontrudarom of Petrovsky in Stakhanov.
Also, in 11:0 days it was noticed the movement of large columns technique of Snow towards the Red Beam, and then fixed displacement technique in direction Dolanskogo and Sverdlovsk. This could mean that terrorists are prepared to retreat to Novoahtinsku or try to trick maneuver to lure Ukrainian military closer to the border, what would the RUSSIAN ARMY attacked the forces of ATO from Russian territory.
There is also the option of tactical retreat of the fighters to the border with the RUSSIAN FEDERATION confirms the fact of today's nomination of Alchevsk columns of civilians is likely, the families of local terrorists.
The next day in a row, the terrorists were firing at our troops in the area Dolanskogo and Pickle. With great effort the force P managed to keep control of the border in the area.
Indicates that since 22:00 6 guns, located south of Gukovo (RUSSIAN FEDERATION) are shelling the positions of our fighters. The Ukrainian side does not respond to provocations in order not to provoke a full-scale invasion of Russian troops. The Russian helicopter carefully patrolling the border territory of Russia, probably in search of a break from shells, expecting that the Ukrainian side will return fire.
Offensive continues of ATO in Donetsk in Netajlovo-Sands. The situation is complicated by the fact that terrorists continue to set their guns and fire at forces of ATO from densely populated areas of the city.
An attempt to knock out power ATO of Holy failed after the departure and regrouping, the Ukrainian military was again the locality. When you try to attack militants of grace used the BM-21 "Grad".
In Lugansk arrived next replenishment as multiple units MLRS "Castles". According to one version, RUSSIAN troops conducted engineering construction pontoon crossings.
Going on the offensive in the North and South with Lugansk-West, moreover, has not yet resolved the issue with Izvarino, allowing the rebels to renew their strength and an arsenal of weapons.
According to our forecasts, possible breakout of militants through PM Dolzhansky and Marinovku. Terrorists are constantly organized sabotage and shelling by both the Ukrainian and Russian territory. In addition, possible counter-attacks in Pervomaisk-Lisichansk and Debaltseve-Gorlovka. It is associated with the need to prevent the complete encirclement of Donetsk.
In addition, given the buildup of RUSSIAN forces along the border, as well as provocation in Sumy and Kharkiv region, you can expect breakthroughs from the militants in areas that were identified in previous reports.
Events in the international arena will host the night tomorrow. Thank you for your attention. Good night."
