Interview with the commander of the mining division Konstantin Kuzmin
Continuing the glorious traditions of the defenders of the Motherland during the Great Patriotic War, the fighters of the glorious Miner's Division, starting on June 21, a new modern Miner's Division began to form in the DPR. Her commander Konstantin Kuzmin answered questions from journalists.
- How big is your unit?
- At present, several battalions are fully formed. These are mainly miners and metallurgists, but there are also representatives of other specialties. The age of the fighters is different. From 22 years to 60.
- This is experienced fighters?
- Also different. But we have experienced instructors, Afghans, officers, masters of sports in wrestling and hand-to-hand combat with the fighters. The fighters have already used their combat skills in various combat operations. For example, our unit occupied a military unit of 3004.
- How are you equipped? Do you have enough weapons, uniforms, what is the supply of food?
- The situation is improving every day. Arms are constantly replenished, the number of military equipment and small arms, ammunition is increasing. The outfit is a bit worse, but the situation is getting better.
- Do new fighters come to your division and will there be enough weapons for everyone?
- They go all the time. Weapon enough. In addition, I want to say to everyone who is able to hold a weapon in his hands. Tear off your asses from the shops and chairs and sign up in the ranks of the militia. I do not want to frighten, but in the case of punitive breakthroughs in Donetsk, no one will be able to hide. Slavyansk and Kramatorsk show that punishers in their rigidity equally apply to both militia fighters and civilians. Come, guys, we are waiting for you. Where we will be, there will be victory!

Overview of the combat situation from the militia of the LC
"- Lugansk. It looks like the attack on Lugansk was finally exhausted (there is information that reinforcements arrived to help Lugansk) and in some areas the punitive troops began to withdraw (even ukroSMI confirm this). There are reports of" trophies ", though they do not specify which ones (we think Humanitarian assistance.) The shelling of the airport has already become a "good" tradition.
- Izvarino. Unchanged so far. Punitive snipers shoot at everything that can be labeled as militiamen. Fully neutralize them yet.
- Sverdlovsk-Red Partizan. Surrounded by a group of punitive conducts shelling this village. But this is from a military point of view, absolute stupidity (I would have saved ammunition in their place.) Although, if the aim of parts of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in this area is to “surrender quickly in the absence of ammunition,” then they can be understood. Ammunition will run out faster, the war will end for them faster. God grant that.
In general, the situation is consistently complex. In the south there are prerequisites for serious success. The key to success is the artillery of the militia that has already appeared in a sufficient number.
The militia are attacking Biryukovo. Looking forward to results. "
