"The enemy burst 15th tanks in Debaltseve. The battle with the National Guard is going directly to Dzerzhinsk. The offensive of ukrov continues on all fronts, including near Lugansk.
There comes a time when Russia must finally make the final decision: whether it will support the truly Russian Donbass, or "surrender" them completely and irrevocably. For the rest of the time already missed. Three months of inactivity allowed the enemy to build up strength and create an efficient army. At least, it is sufficiently combat-ready to destroy small and semi-disarmed militias with tanks and artillery. "

Summary of the LC militia for the first half of the day 21 July 2014 year
"Last night, the enemy intensively shelled the capital of the Luhansk People's Republic, both from positions within the city (sabotage groups), and from its positions in the area of the village of Metalist and the city of Happiness.
By morning, the intensity of the shelling of Lugansk has noticeably decreased. The Ukrainian army destroyed the checkpoint of the LC army near the village of Georgievka, the Luhansk residents had to retreat, occupying the surrounding heights. To support its ground grouping, the enemy summoned reinforcements from the air, arrived at the attack aircraft of the SU, who fired at the positions of the LC army, but was shot down and left, leaving behind a plume of smoke. In the same place the regrouped forces of the republic managed to knock out three enemy tanks.
The Ukrainian Armed Forces managed to occupy Lutugino, there is information that the aggressor catches local men and forces them to sign up for the army of Ukraine and go to the front line. Now the aggressor has concentrated the main forces in the area of the radar station and the village of Metalist, apparently intending to strike the capital from two sides.
Last night, the Armed Forces of Ukraine made a powerful shelling of Lysychansk, there are no exact data on the victims and destructions. In general, the enemy managed to close the ring in the direction of Severodonetsk, Lysychansk, Rubezhnoye. The latter initiated a punitive operation to sweep the city, in which parts of the National Guard and the Right Sector participate, under the personal supervision of Radchenko. On the contrary, the head of the Severodonetsk Interior Ministry Andrei Viktorovich Zhdanov announced the transfer of forces under his jurisdiction to the jurisdiction of the LPR. "

“The battle continues in Dzerzhinsk. The center of the city is“ carried away ”by volleys of“ grads ”and“ hurricanes ”, there are continuous fires (I think Tymchuk already writes about how“ terrorists are shelling the city ”). The militias are gradually being delayed in the direction of Gorlovka - the forces are too unequal “New columns of tanks and infantry fighting vehicles of the enemy are constantly coming up in Dzerzhinsk. Ukrov’s infantry is not enough. But in conditions where almost every unit of armored vehicles has one armored vehicle, this does not matter.
We have a battle on the outskirts of Neaylovo and in the area of railway. station. 1 ukrsky tank burned, another shot down, but this is a "drop in the ocean" - today they were brought into battle around 30. We are "pressed" into the city. The situation is repeated in Slavyansk on a ten-to-one scale: they push buildings into the building and surround them from all sides. "

Report from Donetsk
As a result of the clashes that began in Donetsk early in the morning of July 21, 3 people died, many were injured. The shelling of the city was carried out by the Ukrainian army from artillery and mortar shells.
Most likely, the Ukrainian military thus want to unlock the airport, which has so far been under siege by the militias. And the railway station, to which the attack was launched today, is located in the same area, just a few kilometers from the air port.
The security forces broke through the Sand Post. Locals saw how the 4 tank and the 2 BTR, which circled the city, entered Donetsk. Probably carried out reconnaissance. Now fights are continuing in the airport building, explosions are heard, smoke is visible.
Earlier, the commander-in-chief of the DPR army, Igor Strelkov, said that the enemy’s troops had broken into the village of Avdiivka, from there Ukrainian armored vehicles — tanks, and armored personnel carriers — went to Donetsk railway station.
According to local residents, the airport war has been going on since 5 in the morning. Shots were also heard from the Maryinsky district. One of the shells hit the residential building.

Press conference of the Prime Minister of the DPR Alexander Boroday
At the crash site of an airliner near Torez, three experts work on Monday morning aviation security from the Netherlands. The arrival of 12 experts from Malaysia is postponed due to hostilities in Donetsk and its suburbs, - said DPR Prime Minister Alexander Borodai at a press conference in Donetsk.
“12 people are going from Kharkov now. But in Yasinovataya and in the northern part of Donetsk, that is, in the places through which their route passes, battles take place. Because of this, their arrival is delayed, ”said A. Boroday.
Also, the Prime Minister of the DPR called it a strange coincidence that the fighting in Donetsk began precisely on the DAY OF ARRIVAL OF EXPERTS.
“The enemy today took the city of Debaltseve. It attacks the northern suburbs of Donetsk and Donetsk itself. There are many dead. And it happens exactly on that day when the most courageous experts, despite the opposition of the Ukrainian side, nevertheless left for us, ”the leader of the DPR emphasized.
Also, he expressed surprise at the fact that representatives of the international commission were sent to the Donbass WITHOUT SUPPORT. “They were sent to the combat zone unguarded, unaccompanied. Just with some kind of hired driver. This, at least, is strange, ”stressed A. Boroday.
In addition, according to the head of government, Donetsk Republic is counting on the help of Russian experts in the investigation of the disaster.
Meanwhile, most of the bodies of the dead were collected and loaded into refrigerated wagons located at Torez station. “The remnants of 282 people are assembled and immersed - with the greatest possible degree of correctness. They are in Torez. These cars are not going anywhere yet. They, as well as items that are likely to be “black boxes”, will be transferred to foreign experts. But not the Ukrainian side. We cannot transfer evidence into the hands of our opponent, who is not interested in an objective investigation of the tragedy, ”added A. Boroday. In addition, he said that today consultations should be resumed via videoconference with the participation of representatives of the DPR, the LPR, Ukraine, Russia and the OSCE. “At this videoconference, according to representatives of the OSCE mission, a temporary cease-fire will be discussed. However, I am not very optimistic about this meeting. The previous ones ended in nothing, ”said the Prime Minister of the DPR.
