Minsk chronicles: the LDNR army gives the "answer"

19

Spring exacerbation



According to the official data of the Ukrainian General Staff, this year 41 Ukrainian soldiers died at the front in Donbass. Given Kiev’s penchant for myth-making, the figure seems clearly underestimated, as well as Ukraine’s declared LDNR losses, which, according to the Ukrainian military, have long exceeded one hundred. In any case, the losses are clearly growing: according to the Air Force in 2018, 110 military personnel of the Armed Forces went to the other world.

Collisions on the demarcation line (including in the places of the recent withdrawal of forces and assets) are serious, with the active use of armored vehicles, artillery and mortars banned by Minsk calibers, drones and anti-tank systems. Recently, ATGMs and LNG have been used most often - both sides are hunting for enemy trucks, and the APU has traditionally not disdained to destroy “water carriers” and ambulances.

Civilian casualties are also rising. In March alone, 10 people became victims of shelling of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in LDNR, one victim died. Losses among the civilian population on the side controlled by Ukraine are unknown, however, judging by the lack of appropriate News in the Ukrainian media, the people's police work much more responsibly and accurately.

Give an otvetku


Among the "guard patriots" it is generally accepted that after the signing of the second Minsk agreements, the armed forces of the unrecognized republics turned into whipping boys who could only suffer losses and receive sensitive blows from the enemy. Insanity sometimes reaches such an extent that even journalists who actively communicate with representatives of the Corps begin to spread such fables - in early March, in connection with such slander, a journalist of one of the Russian publications lost her accreditation.

Actually, of course, the LNR armed forces can and do love, but they do it wisely, trying not to advertise violation of the agreements for which the OSCE and various international organizations ask, for some reason, only from the republics - and never from Ukraine. Yes, it happens that the decision to use large calibers is made locally by the commanders or even the soldiers themselves, for which the command then strictly (and not always rightly) requests them. War is war - it happens that fighters get naughty and can even take advantage of a thunderstorm and peals of thunder to send fiery greetings to the APU (it was possible to observe such fun).

As for the stupid things about cartridges for machine guns that go to the bill, maybe this kind of madness is happening in some separate, exemplary units, but in general, the very idea of ​​calculating ammunition for a rifle weapons It looks unlikely.

Life on the Verge


The escalation of hostilities after the comedian Vladimir Zelensky came to power in Ukraine, who turned out to be a worthy successor to Poroshenko’s policy, led to a logical result: the command increasingly gives orders for a symmetrical artillery response and counter-battery operation. Moreover, the preventive work to prevent the construction of APU strongholds in the gray zone has finally become noticeable (Poroshenko’s notorious strategy of “toad jumping” is to capture the “neutral” and approach the trenches of the LDNR fighters, get on the teeth and “jump off”). Apparently, in Donetsk and Lugansk a decision was made to clearly show the enemy that not only Kiev can raise rates.

It is not known how the epic with the spread of coronavirus will end (there is still not a single case in LDNR; the border with the Russian Federation has been reopened), and how it will affect the situation at the front, but so far there are no significant changes in the situation. So far, the number of shellings has slightly decreased, but this is most likely a temporary phenomenon. It is likely that in the near future, increasing anarchy in Ukraine will lead to an escalation of hostilities: having lost the last constraining factors, the Ukrainian Armed Forces units at the forefront can go into all the hardships.

Given the fatigue of the corps command from provocations of the Armed Forces and the growing activity of the people's police units, it is logical to assume that the further aggravation game from the Ukrainian side will result in a fierce local conflict, and possibly a full-scale massacre. In fact, just one push is not enough to implement such a scenario; some provocation or antics of the Ukrainian side. It seems a little more - and the comedian president will play out ... However, it may also be that the spread of the coronavirus will distract the attention of Ukrainians from the Donbass. It is likely that the further development of the situation will become more or less obvious in April.

        I can only wish that he remained alive and returned home intact. Just before, Yegor raised the problems of Donbass. And retelling of "talking heads" ... There is no need for analytical skills.

    Moreover, the Armed Forces of Ukraine traditionally does not disdain to destroy "water carriers" and ambulances.
    These Veseushsky mutants, as carriers of the Bandera gene, are capable of fighting only civilians.

      For starters, you would have watched such a water carrier on the Ural-375 (D) / 4320, no anti-tank driver in optics can distinguish from a transport of ammunition, it’s rather unclear why they take such bulky and clumsy equipment to the front edge, it’s not always justified and then they say that they say they lost as a result of an ATGM attack.
      It happens that they load only a third, why not take the GAZ-66 instead ...

        Yes, fullness to you. Then they saw the Russian armada from outer space with the naked eye, and here they did not recognize the water carrier with all the optics at a kilometer distance. And yet, yes, what the hell is the anti-tank driver with the ATGM sitting in the demilitarized zone, when there the "lead-off and breeding" is provided by blind-looking OBESESHNIKI?

        here it’s rather unclear why they take it and it’s not always justified to drive such bulky and clumsy equipment to the cutting edge
        drag a 3-day supply of water and a weekly dry land of at least one compartment for 3 km on your own hump - it will immediately become clear. And so the Urals, less than for RTGR, do not carry grub and water.

        and then they say that they say they lost as a result of an ATGM attack.
        No need to shift from a sick head to a healthy one. And the cars on which of the ATGMs were also guilty themselves? And the country house which on March 8 from ptur was also built is to blame? Those who fired from these ATGMs are to blame. And those who toughly beat the hands of the fighters of LDNR so that they do not give an answer.
        Quote: Holgerton
        why not take the GAZ-66 instead ...
        Yes, to drive an all-terrain vehicle with a gasoline engine on LBS so that when it hits, the fireworks are more effective.

    Insanity sometimes reaches such an extent that even journalists who actively communicate with representatives of the Corps begin to spread such fables - in early March, in connection with such slander, a journalist of one of the Russian publications lost her accreditation.

    It's just that the Corps has finally got its sane correspondents. Then they decided to get rid of all the independent (from the corps authorities). By the way, they were deprived of accreditation not for what the author writes about.

    As for the stupid things about cartridges for machine guns that go to the bill, it may be that such insanity is happening in some separate, exemplary units, but in general, the very idea of ​​calculating ammunition for small arms looks unlikely.

    Moreover, she looks frankly wrecking. And yet, this is joyless truth. The problem is that many commanders do not at all connect their future life with the Donbass - however, like the previous one. We arrived on vacation, rested, left. And the main thing on this vacation is not to annoy the authorities.
    Moreover, after restoring order, the anarchist tradition of shooting at the feet of especially gifted commanders was successfully eradicated in the militia.

      “By the way, they were deprived of accreditation not for what the author writes about.”
      There is not even a desire to argue with the axiom.

      I have an opinion about the author as a "two-faced a..nus". It’s fashionable to write a little truth, a bucket of lies. The technique of "info war". He and “I am Egor Makhov, a militia, ... by seven murderers” (read in comments from him). As for me, he is bullshit. And the "Patriot" and the "desu" pours.

    So he hoped for an unbiased assessment (he did not yet know that it was Makhov, but he was partial)
    but
    Losses among the civilian population on the side controlled by Ukraine are unknown, however, judging by the lack of relevant news in the Ukrainian media, the people's police work much more responsibly and accurately.

    news about the losses and shelling of the peaceful in Ukraine is constantly reported. Even more than the military.
    In general, it just so happened that most of the casualties are peaceful where shelling is frequent. HER and the most dead
    Gorlovka and Yasinovataya from the side of the Armed Forces
    Marinka, Mayorsk, Avdeevka from ORDLO.
    And the news about the killed civilians from the fire of the Ordlo is just as full.
    Of course, I understand that the information war requires reporting that the adversary is so bad that he kills civilians, but we don’t get good (and if we do, we write off APU for self-shelling_
    But this is not so. Everybody gets into peace. But no one bothers to blame the enemy.

    Most civilians in the Donbass suffered in 2014 - 2082 were killed and more than 4000 were injured
    As for the pandemic, where there is no diagnosis there is no pandemic.

    I’ll just say it’s enough to represent us as whipping boys, everything that needs to be done, everyone who needs to be beaten, but not as before, but with caution, but believe me, we beat and we will beat. And there is only one problem that is not accepted here, and Donetsk and Lugansk regions must return to their borders

    Among the "guard patriots" it is generally accepted that after the signing of the second Minsk agreements, the armed forces of the unrecognized republics turned into whipping boys,
    and there is. Moreover, they beat both their own and others. Aliens from large calibers. Own - hand to not answer.
    Insanity sometimes reaches such an extent
    insanity is that such a situation takes place, and not that it is already difficult to keep silent about this situation.
    In fact, the armed forces of LDNR can and do love, of course,
    they cannot, because now they are not taught this (I don’t know for the DPR, but in the LPR the motorized rifle troops have already turned into motor-building, those who participated in real databases and know how to use iron, there are only a few left and they continue to squeeze them out), and they don’t like, because they are severely punished for it.
    As for the stupid things about cartridges for machine guns that go to the bill, it may be that such insanity is happening in some separate, exemplary units, but in general, the very idea of ​​calculating ammunition for small arms looks unlikely.
    Yes, yes, in some, well, maybe in some miserable 90%, and yes, it’s unlikely wink
