Ukrainian army with combat forces took Marinku and went out to the outskirts of the city. This edition of "Donetsk news".
Ukrainian forces launched a surprise attack on the terrorists forces and occupied intersections "Donetsk-Gorlovka-slavyansk, in which stood the European post of TRAFFIC POLICE, and now had a fortified outpost of DNR. Above post already flies Ukrainian flag.
According to eyewitnesses, the brutal battle destroyed two terrorist outpost in Marinka.
"They literally tore into the trash" - they write.
With access to the outskirts of Donetsk region "Trudovskaya", named in honor of the mine, the battle has not stopped. The terrorists do not want to let the troops in Donetsk and immediately transferred reinforcements from other areas of the city, including equipment.
Based on individual communications mood among militants much anxiety.
At the same time, the battle continues in Krasnogorovka, which is a little on the side, and the release of which the leadership of the National Security Council declared a few hours ago.
Escaping from fire Ukrainian army of terrorists "DNR" took mine. Locals were not allowed there.
In addition, as reported with reference to the UNN headquarters ATO, together with the Ukrainian army units entered the ATO Shakhtyorsk entrenched on the outskirts of the city.
"After some work on the Ukrainian artillery locations terrorists on the approaches to the mining ATU forces entered the city and dug in on the outskirts. Now continue positional battles with terrorists. Militants used mortars and shelling residential neighborhoods Shakhtersk to provoke panic", - the report says.
Maybe if the Russians said they would give up the battle for one of the border cities they could negotiate something. But the Russians want to swallow up the old empire.
Well, there is still hope for Putinistas. Their loving and admired Putin, bare chested and oiled up, can invade this neighboring country to assuage his narcissistic need for grandeur and self-importance.
Konstantinovku is Ukraine! Ring around the Donetsk closes
"Free Republic is here to continue fighting for independence and freedom and against the unconstitutional encroachment of ever expanding socialist government...
We believe in the founding principles with all our hearts and mean to defend them to our dying breath..."
Just not sure about the accuracy of some of these reports. Only 2 days ago Ukr. Army lost 30 armored vehicles, 2 men and their Bn. CO. near Shahtersk. Now a total reversal?
Just an opinion, but I believe the Ukr.Army needs to dress their lines. They are over-extended. And armor thrust by the Russian separatists could cause untold damage...
There's video around about a whole Ukraine Mech Brigade being wiped out with Ukraine troops themselves having made the video. This isn't the Brigade that was surrounded, or at least the two had different Brigade numbers. I guess it's possible some reports have the numbers mess up but from the video, it's clear that if nothing else, Ukraine is losing a lot more equipment and manpower than they're admitting to.
