Igor Strelkov - the new Minister of Defense of the DPR

31
RIA News reports that earlier questions of the status of the regions were decided in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. Moreover, in the ballots the people were asked only one question: do they agree with the regions to receive the status of state independence. Approximately 90 percent of survey participants voted to declare independence, which was announced on Monday.


Igor Strelkov - the new Minister of Defense of the DPR


As the co-chairman of the DPR government, Miroslav Rudenko, told journalists, Igor Strelkov was appointed head of the security council and defense minister. It is worth noting that earlier Strelkov was the commander of the armed forces of the DPR.

Recall that the referendum in the Lugansk and Donetsk regions of Ukraine were held 11 May. The question of declaring state independence of the regions was resolved. Despite the special operation of the Ukrainian security forces, the turnout of those who want to vote for the announcement of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republic was 75 percent in one case and 81 percent in the second. Moreover, in both regions 90 percent of citizens were positive for the proclamation of independence.

It is known that the self-proclaimed republics have already begun work on the creation of their own government bodies.

Meanwhile, on Thursday evening, the term of the ultimatum expired, which was sent to Kiev on behalf of the people's militias of Donbass. If after that the military will not leave the captured roadblocks in the DPR, the militia will begin a military operation.

    This is to be expected. It’s a pity that the DPR’s army is not too big. But the hornet's nest that they woke up is already buzzing, asking for kerosene!

      Today, I think, about 2000 fighters from the DPR. Even if there were more, there are no prospects for getting heavy weapons, etc. With this balance of power, it is not possible to force the banderlogs beyond the DNI by military means.

        But it has every chance by the method of sabotage and partisan activity to PARALIZE an already incompetent army territory, with its subsequent "displacement".
        In these conditions, without the presence of heavy weapons, equipment, the availability of a sufficient number of specialists "working" on it, WHILE this is the only way ...

        But historical experience then testifies:WE CAN!

          Based on the previously written, anti-tank rifles in the DNI are enough, which means that you can knock out light armored vehicles. And without it, Natsik is not a warrior.

          There is a combined tactic obviously. On the one hand, the DPR controls large settlements, which cannot be lost in any way, otherwise the DPR is underground and ceases to exist. On the other hand, partisan activity, but with its help decisive success cannot be achieved, since weakening the group to such an extent that it can be supplanted is not possible. In reality, the number of soldiers increased to 10000. The tasks of the DPR army should include unconditionally tight control over the territory, communication, transport hubs, and the protection of government bodies. Suppression of the activities of Ukrainian authorities and the re-subordination of law enforcement agencies are very important. A difficult task is also to establish control over the state border on the part of Russia, even at least for a significant period. So far, there has not been much success in reassigning and transferring the armed forces to the DPR side.

        But the army is not very eager to fight, and there are not so many law-enforcement officers and the National Guard. They will start to terrorize them on the sly, they will run!

    We are waiting for decisive actions from you! After all, yesterday the time for an ultimatum from "Abwehr" has passed.

        What an American vulgar nonsense ?! Either they shake their ass, their alien eggs excite, or the length of their penis. Strelkov is a normal Russian man with a normal Russian soul. And that says a lot. And leave the discussion of the presence of genitals and places from where they smear to your not far away America.

      It is not bad to have "aces in the sleeve", especially in the fight against such an enemy as an unprincipled junta. more important have a ONE FRONT capable of squeezing out a reptile from the Donbass ...

    If these 10 thousand people are armed even with Mosinks from old warehouses, and if you give ammunition to the PTR, which Strelkov spoke about, you can safely go to Kiev, from city to city, recruiting new militias along the way, like Minin and Pozharsky in their time!
    Technicians would still .. and word of mouth, the rumor about a campaign to the west will go ahead of the militia !!!
    Only the Right Sector and the National Guard will provide organized resistance, so far there are few of them, we must act, there will be no Russian troops, and the DPR and LPR can and want to strangle in the bud ...
