Help Donbass. Third report
21-00. We gather near the warehouse, think a little. We make a decision to leave on two cars. In the "Kantor" we ship everything, in the "Passat" we place the fragile: radio stations, ampoule medicines, optics. This time, we are already five people, so any surprises are within our reach. We had no idea how useful it would be.
22-00. We leave. Call up with the party. Course to Donetsk.
Break through the rain. A bunch of accidents on the track.
In the area of 4 hours we meet at the turn to Donetsk with Sergey from Rostov. We take his package.
5-00. Donetsk. Control phoned. Our still going. Attempt to leave directly to the customs post thwarted by an evil major. In a very polite manner, he invites us to return to the city. Drive off. We are looking for a glade and stop. The people collapses in the body "Kantor" on the bags with the form.
6-00. Information from ours: the road is blocked ukrami, go on a spare route.
9-00. Ours are still going. We have breakfast. We wait.
11-00. The long awaited signal. Nominated to the customs post.
Here, besides the meeting, an unpleasant surprise awaits: the FPS officers categorically refuse to allow the transfer procedure, citing the received order. Recommend contact in Rostov. Begin the long negotiations on the phone.
12-00. Chief in the sector refuses to transfer. Solid "calls to a friend" and mat.
13-00. Morale drops. Donetsk (that) is trying to negotiate with Rostov. Sasha Kombat boils as a reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. They do not want to let us go, because they already know that we brought, but the chances of unloading are falling. I go to my team, explain the situation. We make the decision to wait until it stops, although some already “fly in” in full. Sun temperature + 43 degrees. Shadow not buy neither for rubles nor for hryvnia.
14-00. The final bummer. Combat vomits and mosques, to threaten to bring paper from Moscow, allowing the overload in any place and at any time. Border guards wearily object that a call is enough. But there will be no call, therefore we are developing a different plan on site and are starting to implement it.
The border is there, at the flag. And we ... in kusheryah.
We unloaded. Where and how - I will not go into details, this is not the main thing. The main thing is that the battalion received what we brought.
As one of our Donetsk friends said, “guys, there you don’t even really understand how important it is for us.” And this is the main reward.
Then I went to the customs station at the “Passat”, where I took two battalion fighters who had a mission in Russia. We threw them to their destination. Naturally, all the time (except for the field lunch, which we had when we found out that the guys had not yet had breakfast) was held in conversations and stories. I will definitely lay out everything we talked about when I bring it into a divine form. Simply, there are things that we still have to talk about. But a little later. After the victory.
In the 16 hours we moved back. The deed was done.

Thanks to everyone who took part in this case. In word and deed. Our suits and berets have already outfitted two companies of recruits. With our rations groups go to the "outs". Everything that we bring is valuable and important.
One person, who has been collecting and sending humanitarian aid to Donbass for three months already, told me in a personal conversation that he had been watching such supplies for the first time. And the guys from the battalion say a lot of warm and pleasant words.
Dialogue during unloading:
- What's in the box with a gift? (Eduard premise).
- Set on a fighter ... full. Suit, unloading ...
- Mine !!!
- How is yours? The foreman on g ... will come! - intervenes another militia.
- Sergeina goes on ...! I was in the raid, when you all razderbanili! And you are all on ...! What size is there?
“I don't know,” I answer honestly.
- Anyway, on ... !!! But if it does not work, then I will change it with the foreman! Combat, I took it!
- Well, take it ... - Sasha is already so tired of everything that he does not resist.
- That's the same ... - A person from very gloomy becomes pleased.
Appreciate. Respect. Risking through the territory of Luhansk oblast seized by ukrami for our parcels. This is the best proof of the value of our work. What can be answered, when after the 5 hours of waiting the telephone rings, and Sasha says that "the road was blocked by ukry, they detour (100-120 km), you will wait for us". Of course, wait. Well, the heat, well, no shadow, well, all this garbage. People go for more for our bags and boxes. Waited and we will wait. And we will press the brains of the border guards. And we will continue to transmit.
Thanks again to everyone. We will continue, as far as possible, to continue the work we have begun.
And the fact that I learned from personal conversations, lay out as soon as possible.
And further. Few photos. Understand. But the thing is that when there is an opportunity to shoot - there is nothing to shoot. And when there is - not before filming. So dear, sorry too.
