Message from the militia
The Ukrainian army is trying to withdraw mercenaries from under Gorlovka, where local clashes between militias and Ukrainian military units continue.
They are trying to bring the mercenaries, because they are expensive, and they are very well hammered in all directions. Punishers incur heavy losses in both technology and manpower. Participation in battles take people from different countries: there are Poles and African Americans.
Ukrainian military are trying to regroup their units. Moreover, in the ranks of the punishers themselves, skirmishes and exchanges between the National Guard and Kolomoisky fighters often occur.

For all offers of the militia to surrender in exchange for security guarantees, so far they refuse. "

Morning report from the militia Prokhorov
"As everyone can see from the messages, the main shock power of dill is a gang, which they use massively, but stupidly.
Therefore, the last days the main emphasis was placed on the counter-battery struggle and the attacks of the positions of the Ukrope artillerymen - near Lugansk Grad LC and mortar gunners destroyed a whole battery (dill recognize the loss of 2 SAU).
With a. Uspenka (near the occupied city of Lutugino) from the artel covered the ZSU column.
The DNR is also actively attacking the invaders. Those declared shelling their positions in s. Ilyinka (west of Donetsk) is the rear of the 93 mechanized and PiCi, who attack Donetsk from the west.
At night, the area around Saur-Mogily was actively cultivated and the s. Stepanovka - judging by the reaction of ukrov, coverings were repeated.
In Andreevka, a checkpoint of occupants was shot at from mortars.
Between Miusinsky and Torez, parts of the 30 and 51 brigades are actually clamped - more than once or twice the command of the dill was asked to provide them with food.
Concerning the allegedly captured Ivanovka, Panfilovka, Kruglik, Krinichek, then they fled from there, declaring it “a raid on the rear”. They did not cause any real damage, but it was unpleasant.
Active partisan raids continue — in Starobeshevo (a small town in the rear of the invaders, south of Mospino), an ATO supply convoy was attacked, the convoy was completely destroyed. This is recognized as an adversary.
Guerrilla warfare continues in the occupied territories. The day before yesterday-yesterday, the attacks on the ukropsky roadblocks were in the area of the Blue Lakes (Slavyansk-Krasny Liman). "

Message from the militia Prokhorov
“With 6 in the morning, there is a battle at Uglegorsk (near Gorlovka and Enakievo), an artillery duel periodically takes place in Torez and near Marinka - the situation in the DPR is very tense. But judging by the lack of triumphant reports from ukrov, things are not very good for them.
I listened to Lysenko (press officer of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine) - it was like a peson. At least 3 has confirmed that Dill covers at Saur-Mohyla and the destruction of the national guards checkpoint in Uspenka (the occupied part of the DPR), said Starobeshevo casually.
He told about the new battles of Krasnaya Talovka (deep in the rear of the occupied territory) - mortars (they counted 40 shells) worked hard on the ukram, the border checkpoint was destroyed near the village of Kamyshne (between Stanitsa-Luhansk and Red Talovka) is an occupied part of the LC.
The post office "Uspenka" (the occupied part of the DPR east of Amvrosiyevka) was smashed into the trash.
Everyone was waiting for him a tearless tear about the village of Stepanovka (near Saur-Grave) - and was rewarded. Again Lysenko was pouring crocodile tears, reporting on the next (two) coverings of ZSU units there. "

The authorities of the DPR suspended the exchange of prisoners of war
The authorities of the Donetsk People's Republic suspended the exchange of prisoners of war due to the fact that the Ukrainian side is delaying the extradition of 4-5 people. This was announced today by ITAR-TASS, First Deputy Prime Minister of the DPR, Andrey Purgin.
"We have suspended the exchange of prisoners of war, which was agreed in Minsk. The reason for this is that the Ukrainian side does not give us 4-5 people from our list, where 20 people have been entered, and are trying to fob on us other people that we don’t even know "he said.
Purgin noted that “unprecedented pressure” is being exercised on the authorities of the DPR by relatives of prisoners of war and Ukrainian security officials. He also stated that prisoners of war, who the security forces do not want to give, suffered during the torture.
"Of the twenty listed, five people do not return to us, and we know that they were tortured by security forces," Purgin said, noting that the 20 captured by the Ukrainian military are ready for extradition, but so far the territory of the DNI.
On the exchange of prisoners of war "20 to 20" the parties agreed in the framework of the negotiations of the trilateral contact group on Ukraine, which took place on August 1 in Minsk.

Militia Herald. Reports from the front
The situation at the front is difficult, but difficult for both sides. On the eastern front there were fierce battles for n. n. Red Beam and Miusinsk. The situation was changing all the time, in the 2nd half of the day the enemy wedged between n. n. Gorlovka and Makeevka. Punishers there yesterday established positions and tried to immediately enter Makiivka, but their attack was repelled. There the punitive lost 2 tank, and 1 infantry fighting militia captured. And just yesterday the enemy lost 10 tanks, 4 units of light armored vehicles at the front. Our gunners yesterday destroyed a whole battery of hail of punitive forces - these are 4 installations with all the calculations. At the same time, the Tsar’s division distinguished itself - this is one of our best commanders, the guys again worked for the “five”.
In Ilovaisk, which the enemy has been trying to take for several days, it turned out to be an interesting situation. Punishers walked around the city from the north and, as it were, surrounded Ilovaysk. But, surrounding the city, they themselves were surrounded. The city is holding on confidently, but those who tried to surround it, fell into such a trap that they would probably not be able to get out of there.
The situation is, indeed, difficult for everyone, and it is clear that the Ukrainian army is now straining its last strength, as can be seen from everything, they have a crisis. They are attacking, but this offensive is already going out of the last forces.
That tactic is depressing, or rather, even the lack of tactics that they are currently using. The way in which Ukrainian troops conduct combat operations can be described in one word - a meat grinder. They absolutely do not pity people. It is evident that they go all-in at the expense of the lives of young soldiers. And it looks like this - they throw their infantry units under our artillery, we destroy them. They bring new ones to this place, we destroy them again, they again throw new ones. This is a meat grinder.
Mothers, fathers of these Ukrainian guys who are thrown under our artillery and machine guns, should understand what they are doing with their sons. In fact, the destruction of the Ukrainian people is underway. These are our people, after all, after all, civil war. From the other side, the Ukrainians, and from this side, the Ukrainians. On the other side are Russians, and from this side are Russians. One gets the impression that in Kiev they are trying to exsanguinate the country as much as possible.
The commanders of the opposing sides communicate with each other, and in these negotiations our commanders with the Ukrainian ones admit their colossal losses, and that they are in fact substituted, they do not regret and are simply thrown to the slaughter. In fact, there is a meat grinder for the self-destruction of the people. And many commanders of the Ukrainian army understand that in fact weapon time to turn the other way.
Commanders, turn the weapon in the other direction, you are officers. Have pity on your soldiers and take pity on the civilian population, which is actually destroyed here by your hails and howitzers. The sooner you do this, the faster this war will end.
This is the situation at the front. Now is a turning point for everyone, and for the Ukrainian army as well. Because she understands that a crisis has come for her, and tomorrow this whole army, despite its numerical and technical superiority, may collapse. These days will definitely be decisive.
Yesterday in Donetsk, at least 5 shells hit the correctional colony in the village of Lidiyivka, there were 1 dead, 3 injured, 1 wounded. As a result of the panic that arose during the shelling, a little more 100 prisoners left the colony. As of 15 hours of 11 August, more than 40 people were detained. The guard of the colony continues to bear its duties. Without a doubt, the shelling of the colony was planned in order to create panic among the population, but the enemy did not succeed, only one person died, most of the prisoners had already returned.
Yesterday in Donetsk shots from small arms were heard. The request to the residents to keep calm, it does not mean that there is a battle in the city. The fact is that at night the enemy uses drones, and militiamen open fire on them.

The captive Ukrainian gunner held a "tour" of the bombed Donetsk
The DPR militia videotaped another captive of the Ukrainian army, which is suspected of having corrected heavy artillery fire. The self-defense fighters decided to arrange a “guided tour” for the captive officer in the neighboring quarters that were under fire. The military led to a residential high-rise building, in which several shells hit the day before. Local residents met the prisoner, they did not hide their negative attitude towards the detainee.
"Do you see a hole in the wall of the house? I have a similar house next door, my wife lives there, a child. And because of you I jumped out into the staircase yesterday in my underwear and prayed to God. And then you are baptized," said one of the local residents.
According to the prisoner, he was mobilized into the army from the western city of Ivano-Frankivsk. In the National Guard, he served as a gunner. It was in his orientation, as the militia found out, that Ukrainian mortar gunners fired at a high-rise building on Panfilov Street. The lieutenant himself claims that he did not know about the real goal, allegedly he was sure that this was not a residential building, but the headquarters of the enemy.
“This war must be ended because people who are not guilty of anything are dying,” he said.
The prisoner repeated the same thing as the other fighters of the Ukrainian army who had fallen to the militia: they did not know that they had shot at civilians, that they were at the checkpoint and did not participate in the battles.
“I have three children, a sick mother. I do not want to fight, I want peace, I will not fight again, ”he said.
According to the militias, they regularly detain saboteurs and spies in Donetsk who correct the artillery fire and learn the positions of the militias.

Message from journalists
"The Kharkov partisans tried captured Javelins. In the Chuguev area, the partisans of the Kharkov People's Republic destroyed a large reservoir of fuel. Thousands of tons of fuel and lubricants burned. Smoke from the fire was visible ten kilometers from the place of fire.
According to some data, two Javelins from among those that were captured by partisans during the rout of the enemy convoy were used to set the tank on fire. Since the guerrillas do not have the experience of using a sample of armaments so unusual for our places, such a large and fixed target was chosen for the first attack.
The next goal of the partisans was one of the army trucks ZIL-131, transporting military personnel of the 24 brigade. The homing head seized the engine compartment of the car, and the ATGM crashed directly into the radiator. The surviving soldiers scattered, but three of them were left near the burning car with their hands held high. Without getting out of the green, the partisans commanded the surrender to move towards them. The soldiers who had surrendered explained that, having been surrounded, they decided to fight for the people, not against the people, and just waited for the right moment to go over to the side of the militias.

Summary of the combat areas of the Headquarters MO DNR
The situation at the front remains difficult for both sides of the armed conflict. Fierce battles for the city of Krasny Luch and Miusinsk continue on the eastern front, control of this territory is constantly changing hands.
Under the city of the Snow Militia, by artillery fire, it won a victory in a local clash, breaking the enemy’s positions, which were hiding in a forest belt between Miusinsky and Red Ray. The security forces suffered significant losses. Destroyed command and staff vehicle, tank and armored personnel carrier. At the positions of the security forces detonated depots with ammunition and ammunition self-propelled artillery installation (SAU).
In the afternoon of August 11, units of Ukrainian punishers “squeezed” between the cities of Gorlovka and Makeyevka. They immediately attempted to immediately storm Makeevka. The DPR army stopped this attempt and inflicted heavy losses on this group. The 2 tank and the 1 BMP were captured by the militia.
In total for August 11, the losses of the Ukrainian security forces were: 10 tanks, 4 units of light armored vehicles, artillerymen of the DPR army destroyed the Ukrainian MLRS “Grad” battery (4 installations with all calculations).
The enemy’s attempts to seize the city of Ilovaysk continue. After several unsuccessful attempts to seize the city "in the forehead," Ukrainian troops managed to surround the city, but the situation was such that the Ukrainian units themselves were surrounded by the DNR army. Thus, the troops of the invaders were even worse off than the defenders of the city.
In the morning, the Ukrainian militants continued their attack on Donetsk, firing a volley from the 40 shells of the Grad installation in the Kievsky district of the city. Most of the ammunition fell into the green area, but several hit the private sector, where the houses of local residents.
There are no injured as a result of a state of emergency, the city is now deserted. According to local authorities, about half of the population left it, but probably the number of those who left is much higher. As a result of the attack on the city, the substations of the bakery and cotton plants were de-energized.

Message from the militia Prokhorov
"According to Uglegorsk (DNR), while such info is from the 6 to 9 in the morning, the suburbs of the city and the city itself were fired from artels and MLRS, then ukry came from Debaltseve with the support of armored vehicles. They didn’t need Uglegorsk for nothing - the group split on the outskirts:
part went towards Gorlovka (via Kalinovka)
Part of them were trying to break through in Enakievo, where the militia threw them away with the help of 3 tanks. Huntyat after embarrassment turned in Uglegorsk.
The small garrison took the fight, fighting went on the outskirts and on the streets (the school and the city department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs were destroyed), but after lunch the militia left the city towards Yenakiyevo, blowing up a car crossing.
In principle - so far nothing terrible has happened - the junta’s wings hang (on the side of Gorlovka and Enakievo), if the militia have enough forces - you can arrange a second Miners.
It looks like the Starobeshevsky District of the DPR is becoming the center of the partisan movement - yesterday a supply convoy was destroyed there, today a punitive vehicle was blown up by a blower truck near the village of Kumachovo (1 - "200" and 1 "300") ".

Answers to questions from the military division of Motorola Gennady Oak
There are questions about our unit. Here are the most common questions, here are the answers.
1. After leaving Seed, how did the division of Motorll change? Is there a large influx and goals of the task (if not a secret)?
The division has changed only quantitatively: it has been replenished with new fighters, for serving at the legendary Motorola is an honor that not everyone is honored. Qualitative morale is the same: by all means and against all odds win.
2. How morale fighters?
I will do without pathos and every day many times by our fighters of the repeating formula: "Anyway, we will reach Kiev, we will order it, and to Lvov." I will give an example. Fighter Topol, commander of the calculation of the AGS. His house in Krasnogorovka (near Donetsk) is bombed. Wife (militia) and two children exported to Russia. Nobody is going to give them an apartment. In the event of our defeat (if Russia accepts the survivors ...) Topol and such as he (and most of them!) Will have to start from scratch. What is Topol's morale? You have already received the answer. Fight to victory. Create a state in which he and his family will be a worthy place. In Ukraine, they have no place, they are subject to liquidation. In the quasi-state that the oligarchs are trying to build instead of the people's Novorossia, leaving only a sign-cover from the latter, Topol and other militiamen also have no place ... All the fighters understand this and therefore will fight to the death in the name of another — their country, Novorossia — in which, despite countless apologists of oligarch-parasitarism will be implemented the principle of social justice.
3. Is the enemy army progressing (in tactics and combat skills) at the new stage of hostilities, after entering Strelkov’s operational space?
Is progressing? Not. Within a few months of the punitive operation, ukry became a little better (in that time, the monkey learns a lot ...), but there can be no progress. And most importantly, the morale of ukrov undermined thoroughly and, I think, irreparably. To die for a conditional territorial unit, for a chimera designed by political technologists with the label "United Ukraine" they want more and more only in words. Therefore, the enemy: a) attracts more and more foreign mercenaries; b) where it is possible, it tries to crush the militia with equipment and destroy artillery of all types at its disposal from a safe distance by artillery; c) intentionally massively shelling residential areas in order to demoralize the population of the South-East.
4. If it is not difficult, then 1 - 2 is the brightest episode of the latest events on the front.
Nikolaevka. We with Small (the commander of the PTRS calculation) and Tofik (the second number) are waiting in the "Zelenka" ukrov column. Gone. But. Long away. From the PTRS do not get it ... Yes, and there are a lot of them there - 18 BTR, installation of MLRS, 3 tank, 5 LAZ and 3 Kamaz with infantry. If we strike, we will declassify, and use zero, and then we will not have time to leave. The column passed and ... as a steep jeep is rolling into the yard on the primer in the Zelenka green (to the very place where the suspicious grass picker flashed the day before, he is now clear that the scout did not declassify our ambushes). A jeep - then found out - with a representative of the Ukrainian General Staff ... Do not hesitate to cut a car out of "Kalash", and Malaya finishes it and burns it with an anti-tank rifle. And - backfire: it seemed that the bullets were squeezing right above Small's helmet, it seemed (or really the perception at such moments is extremely compacted and sharpened?) You see these bullets ... Then, under the crossfire of the PC and AGS, we departed, and when the mortar fire began, I confused, stuck in the branches in a narrow aisle, and behind my back - bang! bang! bang! - closer and closer, very close ... I remember Islam (the call sign of one of our best fighters, he is now in a Russian hospital), the only one who noticed this, stopped and - to me. I twitch in the branches, and Islam (he had eyes - out of descriptions, no, not scared, but full of the ultimate understanding: now we may not become, even fragments, moments, and we are in heaven) tz me for unloading and, glory to the Creator of Worlds , pulled, saved ...
Marinovka. We go to the sweep checkpoint ukrov. For a brief interval, mortar shelling stopped, and I, fleeing from the gunfire, dived for sandbags at a bus stop left by ukrami. I look: Ukrovskaya BMP is taxiing out, on the armor is our fighter Sailor, happily yelling: "Motor scouts have wrung out a bee-flashback, ours !!!" And immediately - right behind him, from the sunflowers behind the stop - vzhzhzhzhik, visibly and tangibly (me and Masya, our scout, he also rushed for the sandbags) doused with a hot wave - the projectile from PTRURA flew. The BMP braked a little further, scrambling on the armor and - again they squeezed out of the ATGM ... The sailor laughs: "To hell with you, freaks, you won't get!" Masya was stunned by the physique turning to me: "Well, did you see it? Insolently! Motorola said, let me grow my beard, the style of the division, and these almost burned it to me ..!" The armor rumbles, I almost crashing into a sharp turn (unlike the BTR, there is almost nothing to hold on to a bemapshke), frantically trying to take out the video camera ...
Such episodes have accumulated in abundance, but it is also clear from these two: you can kill us, you can never win.
5. What help is most needed to the militia from supporters?
It is clear what help we need most: military equipment, who know how to deal with this equipment by specialists, equipment, medicines and experienced front-line doctors. And also REAL assistance to families of militias in Russia fighting in the South-East of the former Ukraine. I also need the help of the special services of the Russian Federation and public organizations in the search and release of volunteers captured by Ukram ...

Interview with Donetsk militias: how 12 militias near Donetsk defeated the Ukrainian column of armored vehicles
In the Donbas war. Artillery shells civilians, shells fall into residential areas, entire villages are turned into ruins - the mass graves of local residents.
Many yesterday, ordinary people themselves come to grips. Today we will tell about the 28-year-old resident of Donetsk, who recently worked as an orderly on an ambulance - a calm, smiling, medium height guy. Now he is a militiaman with the call sign "Alex", now he is undergoing treatment in one of the hospitals after being wounded.
In the militia "Alex" from the end of May:
The first "call" was after Odessa. It was unbearable to watch, I understood that something had to be done. And when there was a slaughter at the airport in Donetsk (I was then engaged in transporting the wounded), I realized that I could not sit back. Enrolled in the militia and took up arms. Parents were worried and dissuaded, but I did the right thing, I know that. ”
In the past two weeks, "Alex" was on the most difficult part of the front, he participated in the battle for Shakhtersk.
“To say that there were battles - it is impossible. National Guard simply destroyed the city. They didn’t care whether they were civilians or militias. They were beating directly on residential buildings from howitzers and hail. So in general it is impossible to do, well, the army should not do that, there are people in the same place, they have mothers and families. And we watched it every day. Evil were very. One day, the enemy decided to make a tank attack, went into the breakthrough. And the guys from my unit just recently got well equipped, got a lot of trophies, and we were like “cyborgs”. And with grenade launchers, and "unloading" all appeared at last, and helmets. In general, we feel invincible. And then this column.
As usual, to the 5 morning, go 6 tanks, 4 BTR, soldier decently, did not count, but by eye the man 100-120. And we are 12 people. With weapons order, but we are few and without armor. We already know that they are coming, our intelligence is not bad. In short, it is impossible to retreat, it’s necessary to hold the position, but there will be no reinforcement, we knew that. They decided to arrange a "horseshoe", there was no other way out. "Horseshoe" is when there is heavy fire from the flanks, and they also meet the enemy in front. Stuck is risky, you can easily hook your own ones, but it did not work out otherwise.
In general, they took positions, hid in "Zelenka", we meet. They had already arrived, meters in 30 from us, and we have to wait until the whole column passes, and hit the cars. And then one of the attackers launched a flare. And the guy who sat opposite us in ambush, nerves passed, he began to shoot. He put someone or not, but immediately in the wrong direction they began to pour such fire, I thought everything came. And from the machine guns, and from the “bater”, and from the grenade launchers, they simply began to pour fire, then they began to beat in all directions. I’ll say right away that we lost four of them right away in a few seconds. I see - everything, or we cover, or you have to sell yourself at a higher price. Well, we started to give them an answer. ”
About what happened next, tells the fighter, who was sitting next to our hero in ambush. He describes this moment of the battle as follows:
"Alex" rose to his full height, I thought he went to the roof. Shouted something and from the RPG made a shot at the tank. I thought he would carry the queue, but ukry, apparently, were taken aback, hid behind armor. "Alex" continues to shout something, snatched a grenade launcher from me, made a shot. I didn't hit the armor, but I laid several of them on the spot. Here and we "came to our senses". Started their grenades to throw, shoot from the grenade launchers. And on the opposite side, our two survived. They, too, with RPG fired, BTR immediately smoked, set it on fire. And everything went quickly, seconds 10 probably, maybe, 15. Here we see, the tanks are turning and now they will go in our direction - they will crush. Then "Alex" jumped up and ran out onto the road, right in the middle. Through the burning tank began to throw grenades. They burst, ukry retreat, we begin to water from Kalash. We look - “Alex” is already on that side, and is aiming from a grenade launcher. In short, I see the guy went into courage. And something that so cheered us up, we come and grenades, and machine guns, gave them a good tight fire "curtain".
We look - these are already 3 machines lost, and 200-x with 300-mi collected. We put their 12 people exactly, and there are many wounded. Under the guise of cars began to retreat. And our losses - four dead, and almost all injured: who firearms, someone shrapnel. And we must quickly retreat, they will depart, and the artillery will start working on us. In general, we retreated, these too. Attack repulsed. After that, they didn’t work in this direction for a long time, they worked.
I will say this, the fact that “Alex” did, you can only see this in a movie. Seriously, they'd just kill us. To stand in front of a tank in full growth, and then run in front of him and throw grenades - I don’t know what. I have not seen this.

Message from the militia
"Punishers attacked Ilovaysk with superior forces while overwhelming fire and technical power bypassed the city from the north to deprive a small supply garrison. However, trying to surround the city, the enemies themselves were surrounded in the villages of Zelenoy and Fedorovka, where they found the shameful death and captivity.
The talentless outcome of the Ilovai offensive was decided by the heroic strike of the ambush regiment of the militia in the village of Grabskoe. The supply of the enemy was disrupted, the village was completely cleansed of enemies. As a result of the fighting near Ilovaisk, the militia destroyed 10 tanks, 4 BMP and 1 installation of the MLRS Grad.
Recall that at the moment there are two more boilers in the territory of Novorossia: parts of the 24 and 51 brigades are blocked between the Red Ray and Anthracite, and parts of the 30 and 95 brigades are blocked in the Gorlovka-Enakievo area. "
