"July 23 in Donetsk our cameraman Vadim was captured.
Early in the morning, he and a group of journalists left in the direction of the Donetsk airport. The last time he got in touch was about 23: 55, after which the connection with him was lost.
Together with Vadim, three journalists were captured, among them Graeme Phillips, a freelance correspondent for the RT television channel. The press service of the channel reported that Graham warned that he was going to go to the Donetsk airport, where there is shooting. “We asked him not to do this, as it is extremely dangerous,” the press service said. “At about two in the morning, a text message came from his phone:“ All is fine ”, from that moment we had no connection with Graham.”
Please distribute this information as much as possible in order to protect missing journalists. Protect and release them from captivity will help only wide publicity. "

The head of the national militia headquarters, Dmitry, spoke about the situation in the area of Lysychansk and Severodonetsk:
"There were no full-scale hostilities in Lysychansk this night. There were periodic attacks, chaotic shelling that did not cause us any harm. Punitive forces tried to step up on four armored personnel carriers, shoot Zelenka, and sabotage groups also worked. But the whole night passed quietly.
Lisichansk controlled by the militia.
Two tanks of fratricides drove into the Proletarsky checkpoint, but the road was blocked by our fighters and they could not drive further. The junta did a very stupid act, saying that there were no militia left. The city is about 100 our guys who just tried to bury information. Also received information that Ukrainian punitive left Severodonetsk, but I have no exact data on this issue. I know for sure that separate groups of fascists remained on several tanks and armored personnel carriers. But I assure you - this is not for long. "

Message from the militia with the call sign "Mole"
"We managed to regain control of Lisichansk. The fighters managed to destroy the batteries of the Ukrainian military, as a result of which the shelling of the city stopped. On the night of July 23 we attacked the positions of Ukrainian punishers in several directions. The enemy army suffered heavy losses in manpower and armored vehicles.
As a result of night battles, the forces of the Ukrainian army retreated from the city, but they retreated nearby. In addition, several units from Luhansk came to the rescue of the militia. They replaced the squad Alexei Brain, whose forces had to withdraw because of the lack of armored vehicles to hold their positions. The fighting for Severodonetsk has not stopped until now. "

Comment on the "southern boiler" from the militia
“The junta's troops are still surrounded. These are battered 79 and 24 brigades and remnants of the 72 brigade + remnants of the punitive battalion Shakhtersk. The bottle neck of Marinovka, which the militia occupied, has been attacking the junta forces for several days, trying unblock the surrounded, but the militia with firmness repel attacks.This continues the fighting on the inner ring of the environment, where the militia are trying to make the boiler, but due to lack of strength, their advancement is mainly tactical in nature and has not yet led to the disintegration of the defenders of the surrounded Since the surrounded ones cannot advance anywhere, most of the equipment is knocked out, there are big problems with fuel and lubricants, then the main hope for salvation, a breakthrough through Marinovka or common successes on other fronts, respectively. If the militia can stabilize the front in the north-west and clean up the Lugansk airport, they will be able to release a little strength to finish off the boiler. In general, there is a situation of unstable equilibrium. "

Message about the situation on the border of the militia
"At the moment, the hole at the border is 60-80 km and has a tendency to expand. The failure of the junta to the border checkpoints ended in heavy defeat and heavy losses. Since the border guards collapsed, and the junta does not have the opportunity to quickly build up forces on the border (they are all drawn into battles in different directions), the whole border was able to be secured and assistance continues to go.As it will be when admitting to control the border of foreign UAVs, it is still unknown.The 72 Brigade south of Izvarino and Krasnodon is judged Today, it ceased to exist as an organizational unit, part of the soldiers scattered, part joined the surrounded from the 24 and 79 brigade.Almost all the equipment of the brigade was destroyed or damaged (repair in field workshops or factory conditions), large losses in manpower. It can be stated that this is the first completely crushed part of the Ukrainian army itself, in addition to the punitive battalions that had previously smashed. In general, the situation is still difficult, but the nature of the battles is such that the total defeat of the DNR and the LC is not yet discussed. "

Comment from I. I. Strelkova
- They write that 79 Nicholas was completely destroyed, 1200 people. This is true?
I. I .: “Who counted them? I don’t think that the whole BTN 79 is almost completely destroyed. Rather, we can talk about a full or partial defeat. Again, the Ukrainian units and units are extremely mixed, and their individual groups are scattered around all fronts.
We are continuing hard fighting, and the enemy continues to have a significant numerical advantage. In technology, any comparisons begin no less than with 10 to 1 ... "

Summary from I. I. Strelkov
“Fighting continues under Marinovka and Dubrovka. Our artillery strikes at positions and accumulations of manpower and equipment. There are numerous fires near the Marinovka terminal, near the settlement of Tarany and near Grigorivka - ukrov and motor vehicles are on fire. Enemy artillery fire is almost suppressed.
Yesterday and today, our losses under Marinovka - Kozhevny - Dubrovka were about 50 people (mostly wounded), 2 tank, 2 BMP, 1 BTR. Yesterday, the commander of the “Oplot”, Deputy Minister of the Interior A. Zakharchenko, who personally led the attack on Kozhevnya, was wounded in his hand. (Today he was congratulated with the assignment of the military officer rank "major").
The losses of the enemy exceed ours at times. Especially a lot of enemy lost manpower. Heavy losses were inflicted today on the newly arrived battalion of the national security groups "Azov". The enemy is very demoralized, but still continues to cling to the "corridor", although he narrowed down to 1 kilometers in places.
Between n. Konstantinovka and Novomikhailovka (south-west of the settlement of Marinka on the western edge of Donetsk) DRG "Bird" from the 2-th Slavic infantry. the battalion blew up KAMAZ 2 controlled landfills with enemy infantry. Yesterday, the same group completely destroyed the Grad unit, which was leaving for a firing position for shelling the city.
Fighting for the village continues Fertile (north of Amvrosiyevka). The enemy re-attacked the village with the support of 4 tanks and 4 BTR. During the battle, our maneuverable groups from the 4 squadron of the 3 squadron of the Semenovsky Infantry Company. battalion hit by 1 BTR. An experienced company commander ("Trump") used the prescribed tactics in which our infantry evade defenses of roadblocks and stationary fortifications during an attack that obviously surpasses the enemy's armor and imposes a maneuverable battle directly in the building or in the Zelenka, paying most attention to the destruction of manpower. Often, the enemy reacts extremely nervously to this tactical device and retreats. How come today - the night will show.
Neither Gorlovka nor Debaltseve, despite the attacks, the enemy could not advance today. Thanks to the timely withdrawal from Lisichansk of the main forces of A.Mozgovogo, the enemy was unable to immediately occupy the Pervomaisk-Stakhanov-Alchevsk agglomeration, where extremely modest forces had been based before. Now the National Guard under will be forced to lead the heavy fighting for this territory. Brainstorm did the most important thing - with his maneuver he covered almost the "naked" sector of the front. At the same time, I can state with full responsibility: he received an order to withdraw from Lysychansk personally from me and executed it, despite all the objections expressed.
On the other hand, I would like to mention the courage and dedication of the “Leshego” commander and his fighters, who for almost two days have been defending Lisichansk with very small forces, winning time to organize defense at the new frontiers. I hope they will be able to break through the enemy’s battle formations in a timely manner. "

The adventures of the Bezler fighters: Subordination is a great thing
One of the officers of Bezler told one funny but quite ordinary episode:
“Not later than the day before yesterday, our box (BMP) had the imprudence to run from around the corner at the ukropovsky checkpoint. The commander of the box did not lose his head and barked: "Report!" Dill reached the bar and reported on who and where and how it was served! Then followed the command "at ease and look at both." After this, our box backs up and spreads the roadblock to pieces in half! And with peace of mind and conscience dumps where she needs! "
