The militia units from Slavyansk, who participated in the operation, consider this small victory to be a kind of revenge, because the 25 airborne vehicle stood just under this city at the Rybhoz checkpoint and constantly shelled residential areas of Slavyansk.

We heard Arabic here, our intelligence reports that they saw blacks. We are fighting against the regular army, professional military. Slavs fight each other wrong.

Message from I. I. Strelkova
“I confirm the occupation of Kozhevnya and Chervona Zarya by our divisions. The armored group, the 5 of the Kramatorsk-Konstantinovsky reconnaissance battalion, the two companies of the Oplot, the separate units of the 3 of the Semenov Infantry and the 4 of the Slavonic Battalon battalion, and a group of the Slavyan battalion, and a group of us, and a part of the group, a group of us, and a part of the attack, took part in the attack. Slavic brigade.
At present, positional and artillery battles are continuing in the Dubrovka area (they have not been able to take it). The garrison of the Marinovka fortified area also continues passive resistance, but is blocked on three sides and can only retreat to the territory of Russia.
Donetsk airport was “blocked” before our arrival from Slavyansk very “conditionally”. For example, a few days before ukry quietly rotated part of the personnel. Real attacks on the airport and its blocking began only on the third or fourth day after the occupation of the Donetsk militia.
Now the airport is unblocked by the enemy - we have neither the ability nor the (most important) desire to compete with Ukraine in armored battles in a bare field. We are waiting for them in the building! Where their mass of tanks will be most vulnerable. And as for the combat-ready infantry they didn’t have, and still aren’t. "

Message from the militia
"To many questions about the southern boiler. The enemy grouping is still surrounded - great losses in equipment, low morale and lack of fuel, do not allow the junta's troops to reach their own, so the surrounded troops take up defenses and wait for the junta to succeed in other sectors or A good offensive on Marinovka. The militias now physically have nothing to defeat the surrounded troops, almost all the armored vehicles and the MLRS, are shackled in the battles near Donetsk and Lugansk. The infantry is not enough (in fact the militia surrounded the enemy with smaller forces, which is the fruit There are very few of the mistakes of the junta’s command), therefore the borders of the boiler are held by tight defense of key positions and artillery shelling and MLRS, which the junta’s forces cannot surrender, but only inflict daily sensitive but not critical casualties. decide on the results of the battles near Donetsk and Lugansk ".

Message from Strelkov Igor Ivanovich
“Karlovka was left by us last night, like Netailovo, like Pervomayskoye - under the threat of encirclement and the subsequent destruction of our small forces there. The platoon of the Vostok was the first to depart, followed by our company of the Kalmius battalion. By command, without losses in technology and with insignificant losses in people. It would be criminal to give ukram "to be devoured" several platoons of good infantry under our conditions. Yes, the enemy as a result unblocked the airport and went directly to the northwestern outskirts of Donetsk, but that would have happened with zader no more than a day, and a hundred militiamen would pay with their lives for a given time gain, nothing, in general, is not significant. Anyway, the enemy will not get into the depths of the city: “bad dumb.” Donetsk is not a tiny Dzerzhinsk with a 80 garrison fighters ... They will try to cut us off and force us to retreat - on the model of Slavyansk. If, however, they foolishly climb, then "you are welcome! The blessed one is occupied by our militia! "

Message from Anatoly Sharia
“The English journalist Graham Phillips disappeared. Circumstances - I left with a group of journalists to the Donetsk airport area. The journalists who were with him refused to go further, because it was extremely dangerous.
The journalist of the "DPR press service" Vadim persuaded Graham to go further (100 meters to the airport), after which the connection with them disappeared. After a certain time, this Vadim S PHONE Graham called reporters and asked again to approach the airport.
Variants. Or Graham was captured, and with the help of a Russian-speaking journalist they lure the rest of the journalists there, or everything is completely bad.
I really hope that the journalist is alive and everything is fine, but in such situations it is better to reshuffle. "

Message from the militia Alexander Zhuchkovsky
“A person allegedly a Ukrainian officer comes to me on the net and offers to report information about the sabotage group that he personally threw at Donetsk. Answering a question about the motivation, he answers that he is tired that they send soldiers to the slaughter. and weapons, promises to give addresses. Then it turns out that a person wants to get a reward, and half the amount in advance. Otherwise, he says, I don’t work. That is, the person doesn’t worry about the soldiers, but works. The scam is cheap but interesting to ak natural phenomenon. "
