"Briefly about Donetsk and Lugansk airport.
1. Donetsk has not yet been fully taken, it was fired from artillery in the evening and at night, the junta left part of the airport at the airfield, but it’s not yet possible to fully take the airport, although the tendency is that the junta will leave it as part of the alignment of the front to release the forces necessary for closing the hole in the front south of Donetsk. The airport was of strategic importance as a springboard for the attack on Donetsk. Since now this issue has been removed from the agenda, this position becomes more burdensome. Army of New Russia to the best of forces will speed up the process. If not today, then next week, I think they will be ousted from there (I would like to surround him again, of course, but the main armored groups of the Novorossia army near Donetsk are concentrated south of the city. What was reported prematurely about the capture is a common thing - we often They like to give the planned successes for the final victory. There will be a victory, but a little later, since there are all the prerequisites for it (both the configuration of the front, and the army of Novorossia creating a powerful artillery fist specifically for taking the airport, and the demoralization of the junta's troops).
2. Lugansk airport is still not fully taken, although after a massive artillery preparation, the army of New Russia was able to take up some of the junta’s position in the area of the airport and airfield. Here the object moved to the status of "contested", which, given the difficulties with the transportation of reinforcements and supplies, makes the fall of the airport inevitable. The fact is that the powerful armored group standing at the airport, which broke through there in mid-July, advanced in mid-August to seize Chryaschevaty and Novosvetlovka, where it was completely defeated, losing most of the armored vehicles and a large part of the personnel in heavy fighting. The remains of this armored group were pushed back partly to the airport of Lugansk, partly south of Novosvetlovka. The army of New Russia quite reasonably tries to take advantage of the critical weakening of the forces defending the airport. The development of hostilities for the airport has already forced the junta to abandon its positions near the village of Georgievka, for which in July-August very heavy battles were fought, as well as to withdraw some of the forces from the airport. Officially, they represent it as a tactical retreat, but in essence it is an attempt to avoid immediate defeat. The forces of the army of Novorossia are there, the battle groups that have crushed the junta under Khryaschevaty and Novosvetlovka have enough resources to conduct offensive actions.
The fact that the attack is carried out simultaneously with the attack on the Donetsk airport speaks about the coordination of the actions of the armed forces of New Russia in the DPR and the LPR (and not as before - who is in the forest, who is on firewood) and a unified planning system, for which, apparently, I must say thanks to the coordination headquarters in Krasnodon, which opened after Bezler’s visit to Moscow.
In general, I think in the coming week at least 1 from the airports at 100% will come under the control of the army of Novorossia, and with a favorable course of fighting, both of them at once. With a complete loss of the junta initiative, it will be difficult to retain the airports of Donetsk and Lugansk. In general, our bend, but for now, to celebrate and throw caps into the air, I would wait a bit. Everything has its time, always have time to celebrate another victory.
In the next few days, I would also expect our attacks on Debaltseve, Lutugino and Happiness. This is in addition to the coming big offensive in the DPR. "

Summary of important combat situations
"Over the past 24 hours there have been significant changes with the configuration of the boilers that the Ukrainian punishers have fallen into. In particular, they practically did not remain surrounded by the Ukrainian security forces near Ilovaisk: some volunteer units broke through to their own. In particular, Lieutenant General Ruslan Homchak broke out. But some of the punitive detachments, which did not manage to escape, surrendered to captivity and today these prisoners were taken to Donetsk. In no settlement of the Starobeshevsky district there are no more soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This information was confirmed to us by residents of Maryanovka, Tarobeshevo, Novy Svet, Styly, Novokaterinovki, Komsomolskogo. At least 170 military bodies were delivered from the last village on Saturday to the regional center in Starobeshevo.

The NATO information unit arrived in Kiev in March 2014 of the year (16 officers of the NATO Cyber Center). It launched active anti-Russian activities. In July 6 officers of the NATO Cybercenter created a stronghold in Mariupol. It was NATO officers who determine the information agenda for the punitive junta. The likelihood of six NATO officers being captured is high. "

A letter from the militia Eugene, the hero Saur-Graves
"I come from Makeyevka. I worked in a mine. Pensioner. I was an artist. I came to the militia in May after the 11 referendum in May.
Why did I come? He came to the militia because he saw a lie that came from Kiev, and not only from Kiev, but from America, from Europe. This made me very angry. I am a believer, and I know that lies ... must be resisted. I do not consider myself a real hero. I know people who are real heroes. They are ashamed to be wounded - they want to go into battle. These people amaze me.
I received a concussion on Saur-Grave, when there was an attack - a tank attack 27 July 2014.
I was at low altitude. There, at Saur-Tomb, one height is large approximately 243 m and there is a small one at 100 meters below. The three of us were in the same trench with commander Plato. In my NP - observation point - only three Ukrainian tanks turned, and all the other tanks - about 30 units - went to great heights. At high altitude, a nearby platoon was holding the defense, commander with the call sign Bear.
I had an anti-tank rifle. We started shooting at the tanks. But the tanks went and went on us. I had one charge. Tanks came closer. There were already a hundred meters. I just relied on God. Shot - hit the tank down - under the tower. The tower spun.
Not far projectile exploded. Twenty-four years old guy - crumbled him hard. But he survived. I had a contusion.
When two shells hit our trench and we expected ukry to enter our trench, my commander Plato was ready to blow himself up and those who would approach him. He asked us - whether it was possible or not - took a grenade in his hand. Took the ring. I do not know. He was calm, and we were all calm. He was ready to complete this case.
But the rest of the tanks retreated. We did not attack us. Nobody got out of the APCs.
Then our small skyscraper tanks began to cut off from a great height. Our platoon thought we were all dead. Then we began to make our way to ours. It took a long time. We do not hear each other - contusion. We went to the lake. There we met ours.
Then we buried our children in the high altitude Saur-Graves. The platoon commander of the Bear, who caused the fire on himself - our cities. He died, and three more militiamen with him. To cause a fire on himself - it was his decision - Bear.
Here to be under the hail is heroism. The guys - Bear - loved. He passed Afghanistan. This was a military man. He pitied people. When, after his death, they asked about the Bear - they turned away - the adult guys - they could not hold back tears ... They worried a lot, of course.
Most interesting is that I met in the militia many young people who had never been in the army and had not fought. Many childhood disabilities. By disability, they could not serve in the army. They did not know the machine gun and never shot. But it takes some time, and all the guys mastered, quickly become experienced fighters.
They, ukry, are afraid of us.
I will say to our peasants who are afraid to fight for their land.
Act according to conscience. Do not be cowards.
I myself want to return to my unit.
My son is fighting there. "

Today was supposed to be a holiday for little Novorossiysk - Day of Knowledge. Tens of thousands of children were to go to the schools of New Russia. Kiev fascists spoiled this holiday, and because of the incessant shelling of the cities of Novorossia, the threat of possible terrorist attacks by the Nazis, as well as the incessant databases in the territory of an independent state, the Day of Knowledge was postponed to a later date. 10: 45 (ISC) village Chernovka (suburb of Enakievo), a gas pipeline is broken, there are hits in the residential sector, at least one private house is on fire.

Overview of the 1 Inter-Brigade of the South-East for 01.09.2014
The past day on the fronts of Novorossia brought several significant tactical victories to the militia.
Now more about the situation in Donetsk and the DNI.
Today, Donetsk has come under fire from the positions of Ukrainian punishers in the village of Ukraine. Nikolaevka (not far from Slavyansk), 2 ballistic missiles launched at the Tochka U SEC (into the Kuybyshevskoye mine and the Nitrogen mass mine). Artillery shelling is not recorded. Obviously, the “X” hour was the reason for the silence of the junta’s artillery: the assault of the punishers who occupied the Donetsk airport began last night. During the evening and night, the militia artillery struck, as a result, they retreated from some positions near the airfield. Fully airport is not taken, because the fortifications available there are not easy to storm. It is known that some of the punishers locked in there surrendered; part continues to resist. However, the airport, as a strategic base for attacking the DPR capital, due to the defeat of the main positions on the approaches to it, can no longer be considered.
In addition, it became known that over the past day, about 300 prisoners (previously captured), as well as 72 wounded and 35 dead, were transferred to representatives of the junta in Donetsk and on the approaches.
In the suburbs: with. Pavlograd is completely free from punitive; Gorlovka eliminated the last divisions of the occupiers (in the building of the SBU); n Kurakhovo (Mariinsky District) and, possibly, Marinka itself - ukry retreated, battles are being fought.
For other locations:
- n. Enakievo in the morning was shelled by a ukrovermaht, there is destruction, there is no data loss.
- in a number of villages of the Amvrosievsky district (Novoamvrosievskoe, Semenovskoe, Mnogopole, Kobzari, Zelenoye, Grabskoe), battles were fought, during which the villages were freed from the punishers. Near n. The village of Merezhki (border Amvrosiyevsky and Starobeshevsky districts) shot down another flyer ukrolyuftvaffe - SU-27.
- in the Starobeshevsky district, the stripping operations were completed, liberated from the Kiev occupiers n. Starobeshevo, Maryanovka, Novyi Svet, Styla, Novokaterinovka, Shirokoe, Komsomolskoye. Thus, the ilovaysky boiler was cleaned (except for Mospino), 20 punishers were destroyed during the night; 96 taken prisoner in n. n. Light.
- n. n. Telmanovo - punitive knocked out; during the stripping operation, 1 BTR, 2 mortar crews and 20 enemy soldiers were destroyed.
- Yasinovatsky district (n. Novoselovka) - during the battles 5 installations of the Gradz MLRS were destroyed, after which the 35 of the Ukrainian military surrendered with weapons.
- in the Volnovakha district released from. Gracious. In n. p. Elenovka continue fighting, there is enough position ukrovermahta.
- in Konstantinovsky area released n. P. Artyomovka.
- during the sweeps in the suburbs Khartsyzsk released n. n. Tretyaki.
- in Pershotravnevoy area remains nobody Mangush - the militia controls the road to Mariupol, but not the village itself. In general, all the routes connecting Mariupol with other cities in the region are cut off for the punishers. It is reported that at present only punitive battalions "Azov" and "Shakhtersk" and a bit of explosives remain in Mariupol.
In general, on the territory of the DPR, the most significant event of the previous day was the incomplete storming of the airport. Ilovaisky boiler finally docked.
We turn to the Lugansk People's Republic and Lugansk.
The capital of LNR has surpassed its neighbor: the Lugansk airport, which brought so much trouble to the militia and civilians, has been released! “The mouthpiece of Goebbels” - the NSDC - of course, speaks of a planned, brave and organized retreat. In this case, makes comments: first, the airport was fired at by “professional gunners of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation”, judging by the accuracy of the strikes; secondly, the klyatskie Muscovites act in the scorched-earth tactics, delivering “pinpoint missile strikes”. How these three facts get along together is not clear to me personally, because I do not use drugs. As a result, 5 punitive has been eliminated, 13 captured; destroyed 3 car and 2 reinforcement. I suppose such insignificant losses are due to the fact that the majority of the Ukrainian escapes left the airport (a breakthrough to Novosvetlovka and Gryaschevate earlier).
For other locations:
- Lutuginsky district: punitive in n. Lutugino surrounded, fierce fighting. N. p. Orekhovka released. Fighting continued in n. p. Peremozhnoe, Georgievka, Lesnoye. Losses are not specified, but there are on both sides. Similar situation in n. v. Veselaya Gora (Slavyanoserbsky District), Lower Olkhovaya (Stanichno-Lugansky District) and Belogorovka (Popasnyansky District).
- Antritsitovsky district (n. P. Malonikolayevka) as a result of artillery strikes on punitive positions destroyed 1 MLRS "Smerch", 6 D-30, 4 vehicle, warehouse with ammunition; eliminated 30 natsgadov; X-NUMX Mi-2 helicopters damaged at a field airfield ...
Thus, on the fronts of the LC also without significant changes: the advance of the army of Novorossia is carried out at a slow pace, small settlements are gradually released, the punishers are forced out of the occupied territory.
By the way, the partisans were very well noted during the past 24 hours: in n. n. Chuguev (Kharkiv region) DRG militia destroyed the supply column ukrovermaht, the losses are not specified.
Civilians: while it is known about the death of one civilian in Donetsk.
National parks (dead / wounded / prisoners): - 57 /? / 111 (according to the militia), 7 / 25 / 0 (according to the NSDC)
Destroyed vehicles: MLRS - 6, BTR - 1, guns - 6, cars - 7, aircraft - 1, helicopter - 2.
But that's not all - now every night "fresh psaki" from Svidomo.
Citizen Tymchuk, once again escaping from the caring hands of orderlies, broadcasts about two heroic Ukrainian kamikazes who blew themselves up along with the 12 by the Russian military. It is, of course, very poetic, but the question arises: what about the whole horde of hordes that dragged across the border from the militia, wetting the trousers that were treated here with our money, and then let go home with the world, why did not show such brilliant heroism? Or were these two men secretly watered by the Maidan Chaika secret zapadenskie berserks ?!
The Minister of Defense of Ruin is a citizen of Gelete, who claims that Russia can use tactical nuclear weapons against Ukraine, which Moscow has secretly and repeatedly threatened, is not far behind. So I see: the night, the Kremlin, the bloody tyrant Vlad Putish, having drunk on the blood of innocent Lviv babies, wearily unbuttons a jacket, calls citizen Geleteyu on a secret phone and, mysteriously wagging his ... nuclear warhead, threatens him with the second Hiroshima. What an epic canvas, what zaboristaya nonsense!
Well, the very thing from NATO Secretary General Citizen Rasmussen: he said that the parliamentary elections in Great Ukriya would be (attention!) A prelude to the proposal to join the alliance! Bravo, NATO, bravo, Ruin! Kiev already has all and sundry: the IMF, pouring in virtual tranches, which Svidomo return with real money; The EU, breaking the only important for the Ukrainian economy relations with Russia; The United States, by the hands of the oligarchic government, is cleaning up the GTS, and the Ukrainians, all so romantic, are waiting for preludes.
To summarize the past day: active offensive actions of the army of New Russia are continuing. Kiev is trying to bargain in Minsk, but for now these are just words and political dances. I think the next few days we can expect interesting events in Mariupol. In general, we will see.

Interview with Lugansk militia, 31.08.14
Alexander 23 of the year, he limps on one leg. The limp because of the injury he received near Lugansk. After getting better, she is going to return to her comrades.
- Where did you fight?
“We were in Lugansk, in the Zarya battalion, we fought against the famous Aydar battalion — these are purely mercenaries, with no Ukrainians. Basically, the Turks, Georgians and people from all surrounding countries. There all mercenaries, all terrorists. In the battles I was every day - either reconnaissance or ambush. We left during the day - came at night. We slept on 4 hours, we were very tired, but somehow got used to it, did not lose heart. There were no thoughts, but how to sleep. All on the go did. There, basically the human psyche endures for two or two and a half months, then the psyche begins to break. Permanent bombings, permanent clashes, permanent bodies, the corpses of children, women, all this is worth a lot.
- That is what is shown on TV, that there are exterminating civilians - is it true?
- That's putting it mildly. When we “Aydar” made an ambush in the village with the name of either Verbunka, or Verbovskaya, there we burned 2 of their tank and “Ural” with infantry. We went in, knocked them out. But at night they returned, went into the houses, set up an ambush, and when we heard that they were there, we went back to the village. They let us into the environment and closed. And that's it, the mixing started there. We took out women and children, because we kneaded everything with tanks. This was our last battle, now the Mongoose reconnaissance group does not exist, the commander was killed, and the company was taken to different divisions. Wounded many, so I came home from injury.
- Tell us more about your dead commander.
- Commander "Mongoose", from the Perm Territory. He left a wife and three children. He went there to fight also for civilians, he is generally an honest man, brave. When we went somewhere, he pushed such a speech! So that no one is discouraged, everyone believes. Generally all. Really believed. All thanks to him. Even in a battle, when he was hit by a tank or from an 120 mine, because there was a strong explosion and fragments, he took everything with his body, one and all. And right under my feet I flew in, they were crushed a little. He generally went to this village first. Then, when we learned that there was an ambush, we rushed there to help him. He ordered the removal of civilians, women, children, from houses, because he drove a tank into the central square and began to work out the “Herringbone”. "Herringbone" - this is when the tank is going, followed by the BMP and another tank. They begin to destroy this house and wipe out the face of the earth until the basement collapses, and the Nazi punishers, the black uniform, the red ribbon, the natural Nazis, are already coming back, and here we are. We sat in the garden, and when the tank began to iron this house, they realized that we were there. Our guys began to say goodbye to life, who pulled the grenades. Last attack. Then the Sklar appeared. Sklyar is a man who fought, which the special forces went through, worked as an instructor in the special forces, he is Ukrainian, in general he is well done. He showed where to retreat, where to take the wounded, and he, I and Anton were left to cover. The battle began somewhere in the 11 hours of the day, and we went out already after dark, an hour in 12, it did not darken there for a long time and the battle was hard. We still had a horn and a cartridge in our pocket, there was nothing else. And we somehow made our way, but when they left, there was no commander. We learned later that the commander was killed, the boys were not there either, they were killed.
- How do the locals live in such conditions?
- They are up to an hour in the city, and then everyone hides. The National Guard is very pedantic. They get up in the morning, wash themselves, have breakfast, start bombing in half an hour. As soon as half an hour passes, rest half an hour. Dine after lunch for half an hour of silence. Then they bombed before dinner and after dinner, at night at three o'clock and that was all. According to him you can check the clock.
Lugansk is partially in ruins, every second house is a hole without glasses. There are no shops, lights, connections, nothing. Humanitarian aid helps, but it is not enough, still not enough for people. Our people carry drinking water, because there is no drinking water, no gasoline, nothing. There is not enough medicine.
- Where were the people hiding during the bombings?
- Mostly in the basements, although hiding in the basement of a dwelling house was not an option: a punitive grenade always flew there. National Guard went and cleaned the house. Or, for example, the house starts burning from above, people mostly baked alive and suffocated. And when their bodies were found, it was scary.
- Why do people with all this do not leave there?
- They say: "This is our land, we will not go anywhere from here." They are not guilty that they have such power that their power does not give a damn about people. I understand, they would really beat the soldiers, the warriors, and they would beat the civilians. They want to raze the city to the ground so that nothing is left of it, well, they are doing it already.
- Did you have time to rest?
- Yes, we were allowed to rest. We performed the operation, stole an armored personnel carrier at night. All BTR trophy. Here we are so desperate. There is a famous driver Cook, he is generally a coumache driver. When they relaxed at night, we crawled along the bushes, removed the guards and removed the driver. We started, they did not understand what was going on, we with shouts and whistles "Russia, go ahead!", "Ukraine, go ahead!", "LC, go ahead!" They were in shock, for two minutes they did not open fire on us, did not understand what had happened. And so we got the BTR. We were given a day, more precisely 6 hours of rest. We rested on the beach, they have good beaches, bathed there, as normal people sat, ate barbecue the whole company, took pictures. The camera is also a trophy, because it was a video of the torture of our soldiers. We gave the flash drive, the camera stayed.
- Did you watch the video?
- Yes, they looked, they are very hard on them. Basically, the ears are cut, the throat is cut like a pig. Well, cheeks cut, eyes poke. Mostly these are trying to intimidate. From their side, it’s even meaner that the bodies are then undermined, a grenade is put under the body or something worse.
- That is, it was dangerous to export the bodies, you did not have the opportunity to bury the bodies of your comrades?
- We tried, but if there is a fight ... We left my friend, we started to chop up, we could not. There was a meter before him, but we could not even crawl, because it was this meter that was on high ground, it was perfect to shoot and we were not allowed to just pick it up. And since we are trying to bury all the bodies, it takes 10 minutes. They tried, buried, put marks on a map and wrote on a tree, that, that, that is buried here. Reported to headquarters, when they had already won back, came from headquarters and sent home. We buried even their bodies, because it is not good at all. A man, whatever he may be, deserves to be in the land. Basically, the prisoners were forced to bury, and the prisoners were drug addicts, those who sell drugs from local people. You catch him, he does the chores.
- How would you characterize your opponents?
- Their weapons are very good. One thing they lack is courage. We've got an 20 ambush in here, our intelligence is small. A regiment, a tank regiment fought against us, they had a BMP, we burned it and a tank. Instead, the 2 tank and the BMP with the BTR arrived, after the battle, from our side were the 5 two hundredth and 4 the three hundredth. And from their side we put the 40-45 man, because they lack the courage to break through. My best friend since childhood, Som was not afraid, ran out, gave a RPG-grenade launcher to this BMP, where the full crew was sitting, and we burned him, not even fearing that a BMP was driving a tank, we went to shoot them.
And in that village they did it like this: there is a fire, you run into a house, you knock out the gate, because there is a sweep there is a house. You burst in with a gun, you see a child, you see a woman, you grab them under your arm and pull them out, covering your body. You go to the "Ural", we exported them "Urals". Natsik do not pity anyone, they do not care. We knocked, if we weren't opened, we knocked out the gate, because many were asleep, many were resting. We woke them up because we knew that they would start ironing now. A friend was injured when he covered a woman, and I was dragging a child. A bullet pierced a bulletproof vest and hit the shoulder blade, sticking out from there. This woman began to kiss us there, to thank. When they left the encirclement, one house remained there, and that house was probably burned. There the village was wiped off the face of the earth. The field remains, bricks and iron only. We ran from house to house, and they exploded - they were beaten with a target. Then another village and "Grad" processed, and a mortar. In general, people have no chance to survive, they immediately burn, they suffocate. We were standing on one side of the field, the Nazis on the other, shouting all the time. And we shouted to them that they did not throw a grenade into the basement, because most women die like that. What about them? He threw a grenade and then went on ... When you go in the basement later, who covered the child with their bodies, who else. You see a woman pierced through with fragments, and under her is a child. It's very scary.
My friend Dan in that fight died, he was 22, the wedding was to be soon. Wonderful man. He did not have to go first. I do not know why he went there. We sat behind the house, they began to iron us, and whether it seemed to him that someone was running — either a woman or a child — he jumped out, and there the Kord machine gun was shot. His last words: "I am wounded." Everything. Then we shot this machine gunner, he threw the machine gun and went at us, there all the bones were broken, everything was through, all splattered. These are the consequences of taking drugs. We went into the house, and there were solid syringes, all such rubbish. We went to the houses where they ambushed and found drugs, drugs and syringes, and a lot of them.
- So you want to say that your opponents often take drugs?
- They pumped very well. Because of this, they still somehow stupidly fought, they stupidly went and shot. We had one Italian, a real Italian citizen. The tank gave the fence, a hole remained in the fence, and they went to ours. The Italian came out, he was shot through with a brush, got into the machine's handle, this natsik completely lowered the horn and only hit the handle and the brush. The Nazi was shot, and in his place came a second, equally stoned, just as stupid, and he was also put down.
When we took them prisoner, they immediately said that they didn’t want to fight at all, that they were mercenaries, but they were not paid anything. Ukraine has no money at all, they have nothing to pay. All mercenaries are thrown with money.
And we were not an option to surrender. The National Guard and mercenaries torment for a long time, and people die for a long time. We saw the bodies that were brought to us, they were greatly disfigured, signs of torture - this was done by the famous National Guard, "Aydar", some mercenaries. They are all bloodthirsty. We had a Barbie boy - the call sign was like that because I bought my daughter Barbie for his birthday - they injured him, and when he woke up, they cut off his ears for profit, took it all off on the phone and mocked him for a long time, finally shot him in the heart.
- From the other side were the defectors?
- There were but few. Mostly their conscripts who are fighting for a thousand hryvnia, but reluctantly, do not even shoot. The battle begins, you hear, the conscript yells: “I give up!” They usually left on the left side, they took a white bag or a white rag. We all understood, did not touch, relatives came for them and took them away. And we did not take the mercenaries into captivity, because, despite what they were doing, they tried not to regret, they did not regret anyone.
The guys from Ukraine are fighting with us, such as we are 20-23 of the year, and grandfathers are fighting, retirees mostly. The rest of the men prefer to take everything in an armful and dump in Russia. On the border there are such men who can really go against the tank in hand-to-hand warfare, but they all run to Russia. If they were bolder, I think the war would have ended.
There is no military specialty. Mongol is a cook, Talib is a teacher of geography, there were physical education specialists, Svetly we studied at the institute, just finished and went to war, lawyers, doctors fight, engineers, miners, fishermen. Dedok 75 years fought from Russia, from the Orenburg region, he came there at all under its own power, 7 days on the "Niva". Such grandfathers on our guard were most often guarded while we were sleeping in the barracks, guarded the territory. But, too, in the event of which they went into battle, they were raised in alarm. There were many of them, a whole floor of pensioners, we called them so “pennies”. There is generally very friendly everything, I did not see anyone swearing at someone, all friendly, united.
- Can you say something about phosphorus bombs, about which our media said that they are being used by the Ukrainian army?
- All this is true. And cluster bombs. We slept in this BTR trophy. Well, how - it turns out, all night rolling, hollowing these dill. Then in the morning they figured out that we were standing in the woods and began to work on us with cluster bombs, I saw it myself. It explodes about five to ten meters above the ground and needles fall from it, sometimes balls. A needle pierces a person through, he doesn’t understand what is happening, after 100 needles are stitching him, he runs alive, falls, bleeds out for 20 minutes. Needles rotate and wind everything that is in a person and fly through. This weapon is prohibited, as well as phosphorus. How to identify phosphate weapons? When it explodes, it begins to water all the phosphorus, that phosphorus that does not burn, leaves a white stain on the ground. When you touch it, it starts to eat the skin, that's how we determined it. Well, at night it glows well. Of course, they all use. There was little fire on us, mostly they were beating the city of Lugansk. Not according to our positions, our units were located behind Lugansk, on the front lines. They knew where our parts were. I do not know why they did not dig for us, they hollowed the city from “Grad”, from “Hurricane”. When we sat cleaning our weapons, the steps went over us. The steps are moving away - the rocket starts to accelerate and goes deep into the earth, and a powerful explosion occurs. They still have night vision, thermal imagers, new rifles ...
- What was the most creepy?
- The body. A lot of bodies. You go along the street, a very strong smell of corpses, because many close for the night, go to bed, and next to mine at night it falls and splits the whole house with splinters. They remain in the houses, and there is a lot of smell. Another worst thing was to catch a mine, because they used different mines. For example, 120, it beats very much with splinters. “Grad”, everyone was afraid of him, because it was better to die from a bullet than from a fragment.
The most terrible thing is when the Aydar battalion, before storming the house, throws a grenade into the basement, not knowing who it is and what it is. This is the most terrible thing, and then when we knock out at home, and they retreat, go into the basement and see the bodies of women, children, young men, grandmothers, and grandfathers. Grenade F 1 - frag, kills all the fragments. Another very unpleasant moment was during my first fight. I jumped into the pit and saw a torn female leg.
Then, when we were walking down the street, there was a couple on the road, a guy of years 19 and the same girl. They didn’t manage to escape from the tank, it’s generally impossible to run away from it in a straight line. He gave a large-caliber shot, and they fell. They left an orphan girl, I remember this picture. There terrible things are happening.
I did not expect it at all ... I knew that there was a war, but I did not know that there would be civilians there. On TV, they say that a person is killed on 70 per day, but more people die there! Just do not go to those apartments, houses, where fragments flew. Who is torn there, who has burned down, they are not collected, they remain there. There people cry, men cry many. After the fight you will come, silence at first 20 minutes, then everyone starts to giggle, joke, and then tears begin about those who were killed. I saw for the first time that men are crying, really for real. There the tears are friendly, when you lose a friend, friend, commander, the tears flow very strongly. I'm not afraid that “Aydarovtsy” will find me, I realized that these are not people, I just don’t know what to call them. When women and children are killed, fear is lost, when you see him, he is ready to break off with his bare hands.
Young girls die there, children, a lot of children, a lot. I haven’t been in combat battles before, I haven’t been at all, and when I first had to kill a man, kill this mercenary, my hands shook, I did not eat for two days, it was unpleasant. And when I saw what they were doing, my fear and pity for these people disappeared. Because when the bodies of children, the bodies of women, old people, pensioners are dragged out into the street, when a small child dies, he is about one and a half years old, he does not understand why, why the war. When you pull out these bodies, somehow everything disappears. Immediately all.
