Tonight Ukrainian punishers fired at Donetsk. If these are incendiary shells, then Donetsk should now be on fire. If phosphorus, then in hospitals there will be many people with chemical burns. Most likely these are lighting shells (chandeliers) But why? This is how the ceasefire works, people continue to be intimidated.

Message from the Chairman of the State Fiscal Service Igor Bilous
“Since the beginning of the“ anti-terrorist operation ”in Donbas, about 600 enterprises have been destroyed.
396 companies were destroyed in Donetsk region, about 200 companies - in Luhansk. These are the companies that cannot be recovered quickly. It is about physical destruction.
The material losses caused to the infrastructure of enterprises by military operations are significant, since we are talking about a large industrial region, tens of billions of dollars will be required to repair the damage. "

Roundup of Yesterday from Colonelcassad Military Analyst
“On the Day of the Liberation of Donbass from the Nazi invaders, a 'fierce' truce with Ukrainian punitive forces continued in Novorossiya. During the day, clashes of varying intensity were observed in both the Luhansk and Donetsk people's republics.
There is an active redeployment of units of the Ukrainian army. It has already become obvious that the Ukrainian side is using the so-called truce to prepare an offensive against the positions of the army of Novorossiya. It is assumed that the Ukrainian security forces plan to divide the army of Novorossiya into three parts, with the formation of boilers: South - near Mariupol, North - near Lugansk and Central - near Donetsk.
Leaving settlements in the depths of Novorossiya, the Ukrainian army concentrates large groupings of its units in the vicinity of the cities of Happiness (LPR) and Debaltseve (DPR). In the southern direction by the Ukrainian military tank the attack undermined and partially destroyed the dam of the Pavlopolsky reservoir. The dam bridge was completely destroyed. The possible goal of the Ukrainian sabotage is to prevent an attack on Mariupol, where Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko was on a visit on Monday.
During the visit, Poroshenko announced the release of 1,2 thousand Ukrainian prisoners by the Novorossiya army. By the end of the week, another 863 Ukrainian servicemen will be transferred to Ukraine under the prisoner exchange agreement. On the part of the militia, it is reported that 311 militias are held captive by the Ukrainian side.
The Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics took advantage of the ceasefire to establish a peaceful life in the cities, as far as possible under the current conditions.
In Donetsk, work has begun to restore water and electricity. However, some areas of the city are still being shelled by Ukrainian punishers. Explosions and sounds of battle continue to be heard in the area of the Donetsk airport, from where the surrounded Ukrainian security forces tried to escape during the day.
In Lugansk, the third day, silence. The shelling has ceased, but the humanitarian situation remains dire. So far, it has not been possible to establish electricity supply in the capital of the LPR, difficulties remain with the delivery of food and medicine.
The night was relatively calm. By 01-00 (Moscow time) the shelling in the Donetsk region had subsided.
At about seven in the morning (Moscow time) a volley was fired from the airport towards Donetsk, then automatic fire was heard - Ukrainian security forces unsuccessfully tried to break through from the airport. The fighting was also noted in the area of the suburb of Peski.
On Monday afternoon, the sounds of explosions were heard on the western outskirts of Donetsk from the direction of the village of Maryinka. This site is under the control of the Ukrainian military.
Maryinka, Donetsk By evening, the tense situation persisted. According to the city dwellers, in Kievsky, Kuibyshevsky and Kirovsky districts, automatic bursts and volleys from heavy guns are periodically heard.
On September 8, Ukrainian punitive forces fired on Makeyevka (from Avdeevka) and Yenakiyevo (from Artyomovka) from MLRS, soldiers of the Novorossiya army were forced to respond to the enemy with oncoming fire. In Uglegorsk, as a result of a clash, Ukrainian troops hastily left the city.
Today Mariupol was also fired upon by the Ukrainian army: at night a volley was fired from the Grad, located in the settlement. Zirka, where the Ukrainian military had previously been strengthening their positions.
In the Volnovakha region, the National Guard was attacked by its own people, the convoy of which, moving in the direction of Mariupol, was shot by the Ukrainian army from the Grad MLRS. The exact loss data is not reported, but there is evidence that the column was burned to the ground.
In the morning, the Ukrainian military opened fire on the bridge, as a result of a tank shelling, the dam of the Pavlopolsk reservoir is under threat (the bridge is destroyed), there is a possibility of a dam break.
The Azov regional center Telmanovo, which was attacked by the Ukrainian security forces on the night of September 6, despite the declared truce, returned under the control of the militia. As a result of the fighting, the Ukrainian security forces retreated from the regional center in the direction of Volnovakha, leaving a significant amount of armored vehicles on the battlefield. After inspection, the militia found that some of the equipment was from the calculations of the Kiev parade on Independence Day on August 24.
During the day, tension persists in the Red Partisan and under Happiness.
An attempt to capture the Red Luch of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was repulsed by the army of the LPR. Ukrainian punitive forces were forced to retreat through their own minefields, suffering losses.
About s. In Toshkovka, Pervomaisky District, LPR, during the day, there was an active exchange of fire with the participation of artillery and MLRS "Grad" militias with Ukrainian security forces.
In the direction of the Ukrainian army checkpoints near the city of Kirovsk, in response to the enemy's attempt to break through in the direction of Stakhanov, fire was opened.
Fighting continued in Zolote, Zhdanovka, Nizhnaya Krynka, Fashchevka.
Movements of Ukrainian troops
In Kharkov, in the morning at about 9.30 (Moscow time), through the intersection of 50 years of the USSR and Gagarin avenue (near the airport) from the direction of Merefa, turning at the intersection to exit the city (either through Bezlyudovka to Izium, or along the district to Chuguev), column of the Ukrainian army. The column consists of 11 vehicles (including two buses and one command vehicle) with the military, judging by the equipment, the military are part of the volunteer battalions.
According to eyewitnesses, in Lozovaya (150 km from Kharkov) there is a very dense concentration of the "Donbass" battalion and a large number of armored vehicles.
During the day, a long column of enemy forces was located between the village of Mironovka in the Artyomovsk region and Debaltseve, presumably, the equipment was being pulled together to attack Gorlovka. On the southern and northeastern outskirts of Debaltsevo, on bridges, the work of engineering units and the delivery of goods under guard were recorded.
The Ukrainian army withdraws part of the garrisons in the occupied territories of Novorossiya and concentrates them in the town of Schastye.
In the afternoon of September 08, a column of armored vehicles passed through the Kabanye (Krasnorechenskoye) station towards Baranikovka, the estimated number was up to one hundred units.

Three servicemen of the "Aydar" battalion went over to the side of the Novorossiya army. The soldiers told the militia about the plans of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and volunteer battalions. They argue that the anti-terrorist operation of the Ukrainian military may continue. The reason for its beginning may be the provocative shelling of the positions of the Ukrainian security forces, allegedly by the artillery of the militia. At the same time, soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will fire on their own. "

A message from a military analyst
“In general, the defeat in late August and early September was not in vain for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Those reserves that were used up in battles by the middle of last month, but previously defeated units began to return to the front. There really is a problem. As a result of the demand for their quick return, some brigades were essentially reduced to battalions, and in the event of their repeated defeat it would be impossible to reanimate these units. The same units that returned to the front or will return in the coming weeks have obvious problems with equipping with armored vehicles (according to the reviews of the soldiers themselves, the bulk of the equipment from the conservation, which was carried out in 72 hours, according to Yatsenyuk's idiocy). It is in a terrible state and partly "outdated". The only thing with which so far there are no problems is the manning of the artillery. What else did I notice. In the battles of July-August, the brigades formed in Galicia fought best (most stubbornly). They did not surrender. They did not cross the border with the Russian Federation (by the way, this does not apply at all to the 51st Volyn brigade. That is, not all of western Ukraine, but Galicia). That is why it is these brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine that are being restored in the first place. That is, here the border of “loyalty” to the regime begins to appear. By the way, communicating with the Galicians, I heard reproaches. They believe that the third wave of mobilization is taking place only in Western Ukraine, and the rest of the regions are "hosing". They are certainly wrong, but I can already see a certain tilt in this direction. Moreover, over time, this list should only intensify. I would especially note the emergence of a volunteer regiment in the VSN, formed from former military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Ministry of Internal Affairs. It looks like the "human" approach to prisoners is yielding results, and I think that this regiment will soon be deployed into a brigade.
According to information from the field, one can see the accumulation of a shunting fist in the area southwest of Donetsk. The second such fist is being formed north of Luhansk. I don’t see such a fist on the DPR’s northern front (I don’t know what Bezler’s people saw there), but I don’t see it yet. Still, as I expected, the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not have any forces in all directions. Mobile units overlap primarily the steppe areas near the borders in the area of which a repetition of past devastations is possible. On the one hand, this is justified, but it carries the risks that I spoke about earlier. The need to cover the entire border makes concentration impossible, which means it can put these units under separate defeat. This is especially true of the direction north of Luhansk. In the south of the DPR, the junta is gradually stabilizing the situation. Here, the offensive of the junta's troops with limited goals is possible (Novoazovsk-Mariupol). Only in this way can they try to seize the initiative, which is very important. The morale of the junta's troops is low as never before, and further defeats can simply bring down the front even without the physical destruction of units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The VSN, as I wrote earlier, using internal lines of operations can strike depending on the concentration of the junta's forces (several promising directions). Moreover, they must regroup earlier, which means they have every chance of being the first to strike. Dragging out the ceasefire for several weeks will begin to turn the situation in favor of the junta (albeit for a short time. Before the elections). Therefore, I expect a break in the truce in the next week (and most likely this one). Otherwise, the defeat of parts of the junta will be accompanied with unnecessary losses in people and time. "

Analysis of the situation in units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and punitive battalions
"The 72nd Brigade has been reorganized. From the remnants and replenishment, 1 BTG has been formed, which is already at the front.
The 25th suffered losses and was partially surrounded (with units of the 24th) near the border of the Russian Federation. The brigade has been fighting for a long time. Given the peculiarities of the formation, it is one of the most combat-ready in the Armed Forces. In addition to the surrounded units, it actually has the opportunity to be at the front as part of 1 BTG (subject to reorganization, replenishment of drugs and equipment).
95th brigade. It suffered heavy losses in the northern sector of the front. The combat capability is high. But the losses are making themselves felt. The maximum that can be formed without reducing the combat effectiveness is 1 BTG. If all battalions (or two) are restored, this will sharply reduce the combat effectiveness and saturation of armored vehicles, and will also drag on in time.
80th brigade. In the last battles, she suffered significant losses. First of all, in technology. I have many questions about it. For the most part, it is located west of Lugansk, together with units of the 1st tank and 30th, pinning down the troops of the LPR.
79th brigade. Most affected team. The colossal losses in the previous battles almost completely knocked out the officer and personnel of the unit. In fact, it needs to be formed anew. How long it will take is not yet clear. An even bigger problem for the unit is technique. BMD is no longer in the warehouses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. There are reports about the manning of the BTR 70/60 brigade. Moreover, the state of technology, according to the soldiers, is simply catastrophic. Therefore, I don't even know when and in what form the brigade will reappear on the battlefields. Hence, it is quite logical to form on the basis of the remnants of the "Phoenix" battalion. Apparently this is the only thing that can quickly get to the front.
Both special regiments of the Ministry of Internal Affairs 3 and 8 are deployed into brigades (1st and 2nd separate) of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. They have good training. But the problem is the saturation of armored vehicles. In fact, they are excellent units for the protection of cities and cleansing, but they cannot be used as shock ones. Parts of one of the brigades are located in the Mariupol region.
28th brigade. On August 17th was in reserve. Over the past time, the units that appeared at the front were completely defeated near Saur and in the Ilovaisk region, during the counter-offensive of the VSN. I think it will not exist as an organized military force for several weeks.
The same applies to the 1st BTG of the 92nd brigade. Defeated near Ilovaisk. For the rest of the battalions: there is a problem with the medical equipment. It can be used in defense, but the shock capabilities are severely limited.
51st brigade. As it was and remained the weakest link in the Armed Forces. The broken fighting spirit in May near Volnovakha is still making itself felt. It was the quick "withdrawal" (or rather the flight) of the 51st brigade units (along with the TO battalions) from the flanks that decided the outcome of the Ilovaisk battle in favor of the VSN. This allowed for some time to keep this part as a combat unit, but to what extent this part is combat-ready. Personally, I have big doubts.
93rd brigade. In battles from the very first days (starting from Slavyansk). Probably this brigade can be called "lucky" for now. Taking part in many battles for several months to preserve the backbone and combat capability ... Apart from the airmobile troops, not a single unit of the Armed Forces of Ukraine succeeded. You should pay attention to this part and its command. Against the general background, an example of perseverance and professionalism. Although it was partially battered in the last battles, it remained as a combat-ready unit of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
30th brigade. Parts of the brigade, along with the 80th and 1st, formed the backbone of the Armed Forces grouping in the area of the Luhansk airport and Lutugino (1 BTG). The battles and the exit from the encirclement cost the brigade heavy losses. Especially in technology. I honestly cannot say which units are assigned and which are not (I have no data), but it is safe to say that the brigade's units will be used as a mobile reserve in the Luhansk direction (together with the 80th and 1st). Plus, it is possible to form a new BTG based on the previously defeated two battalion groups. Moreover, the appearance of this BTG on the front is possible in the very near future (and possibly already there).
Units of the 24th brigade (2 battalions), defeated earlier, are hastily receiving replenishment of HP and equipment (as they showed themselves from the best side in the Southern Cauldron) and most likely will not merge into one BTG, but will deploy into two. True, there is a problem with the "obedience" of veterans. Given the large losses in HP and equipment in previous battles, the deployment of these units will be delayed for some time (at least several weeks). As a result, the combat effectiveness of the newly organized units should also be lower (there are very few veterans in them. Many died disabled or on the run).
Finally, the 128th brigade. It suffered some losses in battles north of Luhansk, but still retains its combat effectiveness. Although there is information on the network about problems with the "fighting spirit". But let's not rush to conclusions yet.
1st and 17th tank units are used in rotations to reinforce other units. They suffered losses, but they still retain some combat effectiveness.
Separately, two words about the "volunteer" units. The fighting in the Ilovaisk region, under which all (except for "Aydar") volunteer units were pulled together and their frank "drain" by the leadership of the junta, dramatically changed the attitude of these units. What survived in the Ilovaiskaya meat grinder became open opposition to the regime. And it is a sin not to take advantage of this. "Aydar" also received its portion of bloodletting in the area South and North of Luhansk. The mood is similar there. The recent announcement of three soldiers of the Aidar battalion going over to the side of the VSN does not surprise me personally. Any human patience has limits. "

Message from the philosopher and publicist Dmitry Galkovsky
“A hundred years ago, the inhabitants of eastern Ukraine lived in the Kharkov province and were full citizens of the great Orthodox Russian country. Westerners lived in the kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria, on the outskirts of Austria-Hungary. And they were pariahs there. How did they communicate with the Ukrainians of Russia? No way. There was a fortified border between the two empires, mutual emigration to Russia and Austria-Hungary was microscopic, the two peoples could not interbreed because of their different faith. A marriage between Uniates and Orthodox Christians was practically impossible for the common people.
What happened 200 years ago? The same Kharkov province and the same "Lodomeria".
What happened 300 years ago? Orthodox Sloboda Ukraine and Uniate-Catholic Ukraine as part of the Commonwealth. This is 1714.
What happened in 1614? The stage of ethnogenesis and the formation of the Russian state itself and the Russian people.
That is, in the foreseeable era, Galicians and Ukrainians NEVER crossed. For centuries. And we DIDN'T SEE each other IN EYES. Because the attachment to the ground, the state border + another faith.
With the annexation of Galicia to Russia in 1914, a single people could be formed in a hundred years, especially since the Galicians themselves are few. But that did not happen. For in 1917 the Russians lost power in their state. And the Galicians never had it. Once received, they began to take revenge for centuries of humiliation. Only the Germans, Poles and Hungarians humiliated them, and they began to recoup on the Ukrainians and Russians.
But this is not their fault. The Galicians are to blame for being Galician as much as the Portuguese are "to blame" for being Portuguese. They were so ugly.
But the Ukrainians are not. People made a CHOICE. And no need to say that this choice was historical by chance and happened even imperceptibly for those who chose. In such cases, people are prompted by the heart.
They declared Russia Nerodina. The part, split off from Russia, in which they themselves lived, was given to mortally hating and envious Galicians. So what's next?
As Gogol's Ivan Ivanovich said: Well, what are you standing for? because I'm not hitting you!
Lost their homeland. "

Message from militia Prokhorov
“On armored vehicles. Dill does not have hundreds of new tanks and is not expected. The failure of the de-conservation and rearmament program was recognized back in mid-August - as a result of which the director of the Khryakovsky plant named after V.I. Malyshev (they could not arrange the production of new tanks) and the director of the hoary armored plant (which was supposed to repair and reactivate the existing tanks). Even earlier, the director of the Kiev armored vehicle was fired, the rest of the factories - Lviv and Nikolaevsky are trying to cope with the flow of damaged equipment and the reactivation of armored vehicles (armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles). But since there is no spare parts, they are reorienting to the production of various homemade products based on commercial trucks and buses.
In turn, Dill can count on deliveries from Eastern Europe, but it will be dozens, not hundreds of units of even greater kill than the Dill technique, and it is unlikely that it will be possible to quickly put it into operation. And morally the equipment will be outdated - T-72 of the first modifications, BMP-1, BTR-60
But one should not go to the other extreme - they say, the dill has a couple of rusty tanks. This is not so - the dill still has hundreds of combat vehicles in active units. Which, glory to the hysterics of the punitive and terrorist battalions, are now individually distributed among the infantry units.
In view of the current state of the Novorossiya militia, it will be difficult, but much easier than in July-August.
Infantry. The third wave of mobilization has now ended. We can already say that it was a failure, and those mobilized in August - already in active units - they have already suffered losses, September will arrive in the coming weeks, but it is unlikely to change the alignment
Meanwhile, now there will be a new call for men from 18 to 25 years old. Judging by the third wave, this call will also be problematic. Dill's human potential is at its limit. But the most important thing is that there is no material base for these conscripts, and their quality will be below the plinth. In general, as always, it will be difficult, but Novorossiya will win. "

Overview of the combat situation from the militia Prokhorov
“Well, everything is already in the know - Donetsk with a shudder survived another night of the truce.
Dill received otvetku - their summary for the morning.
Quote: “The positions of the Ukrainian units on the territory of the airport in Donetsk were fired at 4 times: 2 times from mortars and 2 times with the use of MLRS BM-21“ Grad ”. Also from MLRS BM-21 "Grad" the base camp of the Ukrainian troops near N of the item was shelled. Thin. The positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near N of the item were fired from mortars. Dokuchaevsk. Also, from mortars fired at a checkpoint of Ukrainian troops near N of the item. Debaltsevo ".
About the partisans. Yesterday evening, a group of scouts attacked a checkpoint of the National Guard near the town of Volnovakha.
Also near Severodonetsk, one of the Terbats organized a combing of the area in search of partisans after the latter's successful sortie. Panic broke out in the city, and Sergei Shakun (the occupation commandant of the city) had to sculpt nonsense about the exercises (although it was not mentioned earlier, it was raining in the city, and they were shooting from RPGs). In general, in the Sevenetsk direction, despite the difficulties, very interesting emerges. Near Happiness and Metalist ukry recede (recognized as dill).
By the way, more about the arithmetic of this war - for one body of a deceased militia, 1 dead dill are transferred.
About news about the alleged defeat of the artillery column of the Kiev junta by the partisans near Zaporozhye, which on the night of September 7 left Zaporozhye and headed towards the besieged Mariupol. At the entrance to Rozovka, the convoy was attacked by Zaporozhye partisans, whose leader, known under the call sign "Nestor Ivanovich," announced that the partisans operating under his command would not observe the armistice, the report on the results of the combat operation says.
Don't believe it. This is the "Makhno detachment" SBU-shnaya setup. All their "attacks" are invented, and the Russians of Zaporozhye, who are trying to contact them, are caught by Ukrainian counterintelligence officers. this week, two of these gullibles have already been shut down. Also, the 26th is armed with the Msta-S self-propelled guns and towed howitzers. MLRS is not their profile.
"The 14th battalion of territorial defense" Cherkassy "of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the end of last week was redeployed from the Odessa region to the east to the ATO zone.
As a UNIAN correspondent reports, this was announced today at a press conference by the chairman of the Cherkasy Regional State Administration Yuriy Tkachenko. According to him, now there are questions about providing the Cherkasy battalion with trucks, heavy equipment and weapons.
And the continuation of the heading - When instead of brains - fat.
“An additional volunteer battalion will be created in the Zaporozhye region, which will receive heavy weapons.
This was announced by the chairman of the Zaporizhzhya Regional State Administration Valery Baranov. According to him, the corresponding order was signed by the Ministry of Defense, reports ZN.UA. Alexander Lobas will be appointed head of the battalion.
“This will be the first battalion to be armed with military equipment and tanks. Now we are preparing a place for the deployment of the battalion, "said Valery Baranov. The fighters of this battalion will serve on new engineering structures in the region. In addition, Valery Baranov announced the creation of a separate headquarters to coordinate the actions of public activists. For the functioning of this body, three employees of the Regional State Administration were allocated, who will work on an ongoing basis. Also, premises and the necessary office equipment were provided for the work of the headquarters.
Here is one of two things - either these soldiers of the Tashkent front will squeeze the armored vehicles for the rear area from the front (which is a gut), or all the weapons of this good-tank battalion will consist of office equipment transferred to the dejected Baranov. "

Message from publicist Mikhail Belyaev
“All that this alleged ceasefire agreement provides is a temporary order of local self-government in certain areas of Donetsk and Lugansk regions. And even then, subject to the complete elimination of the militia, and the militia must not only lay down weapon, but also to leave the territory of Ukraine, as well as the release of all Ukrainian prisoners of war. In return, Ukraine promises amnesty to the participants in this conflict, a national dialogue and some measures to improve the humanitarian situation in Donbass. Even the LPR and DPR themselves are not mentioned in the text of this agreement, and their representatives signed without any titles or titles.
Independence and statehood? New Russia? Temporary special order in certain areas of Donetsk and Lugansk regions, here's the whole independent Novorossia. Here you have all the freedom and sovereignty. You can write these words a thousand times, print them out on paper, and then stuff them deep into your throat. In any case, death by strangulation will be better than death by shame. Ukraine is not even going to grant the status of autonomy to the people's republics. She even did not deign to mention these very republics in the treaty. Temporary self-government in individual regions is the pinnacle of Ukrainian generosity for the rebellious Donbass.
Militias? According to this agreement, they are now exiles and must leave Donbass. Forever and ever. Yes, the merciful Ukrainian side undertakes not to prosecute them and to pardon them. True, after they lay down their arms and go home. Indeed, according to this agreement, all illegal armed groups (read - the militia) must be immediately withdrawn from Ukraine.
Prisoners of war? Only the militia should free them. The text, as it were, says only about the hostages and illegally detained persons, but from the point of view of the laws of Ukraine, all the militias are held absolutely legally. Like terrorists. After all, this is precisely the label that the state of Ukraine has hung on them.
It's not even New Khasavyurt. Russia, within the framework of the Khasavyurt agreements, at least did not promise to immediately become part of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria and did not agree to expel its own army outside the country. This agreement is generally something transcendent and incomprehensible, and how such a masterpiece of Ukrainian ambition and arrogance could be signed by representatives of Novorossiya remains a real mystery.
To fulfill this agreement means to spit in the face of every dead militia or civilian with relish and voluptuousness. To spit in the face of all those who burned down in the Odessa House of Trade Unions. To spit in the Face of the "Horlivka Madonna" and her dead child. To spit in the face of all disabled people, all those who, in the dawn of years, were left without arms, legs or eyes, all who until the end of their days will now be crippled because of this war. Well, and then - to spit in the face of the residents bombed by Ukrainian artillery and aviation houses. To all those who lost their jobs, shelter and their usual life. To all those who lost everything, and for many months buried their friends, relatives and friends, buried their husbands and sons. Who did not live, but survived after the war broke into their land.
Yes, peace is necessary. It is necessary for both New Russia and Ukraine. This war has already claimed too many lives and brought too much suffering. But what is needed is a peace treaty and a subsequent divorce into two states. But the papers that were signed in Minsk are not a peace treaty. This is an act of unconditional surrender, which has no other world analogues, except for the treaty on the annexation of the losing side.
So we really hope that this treaty will simply be ignored at the front. They will brush him off as if from a nightmare, and Novorossiya will continue its struggle. Struggle to the present Peace, to gaining real freedom and independence. After fulfilling this treaty, Novorossia itself will commit suicide with its own hands. "

Chronicle of the "truce" from the Political Department of the Ministry of Defense of the DPR
“Tonight, at 01:30, Novorossiyskaya Street near Putilovka was shelled. A group of our military correspondents left for the scene. The witness of the incident, an old woman of 79 years old, says that pieces of metal that fell from the sky were literally pierced through her house. The military men were presented with a grave picture of a ruined peaceful life: one splinter hit the refrigerator, the roof was broken, so that the overlap is visible, a hole in the floor. Other houses suffered no less: walls cracked, plaster collapsed, rooms were buried under a thick layer of debris. The locals, in spite of everything, maintain high morale and are ready to fight the enemy to the end. "

"Truce in Ukrainian". Report of the military secretary of the Political Department of the DPR
What is the September truce in action? In order to answer this question, Ben Douglas, the military leader of the DPR Defense Ministry, visited the front near Donetsk.
In Donetsk, the mention of a truce will cause a grin at best. It is difficult to believe in a truce, when the noise of a cannonade comes almost every day. From the city center only thunder is heard on the horizon. It is difficult for locals, especially non-military ones, to understand who shoots at whom. One thing is clear: the noise comes from the airport occupied by the Ukrainian troops.
It can be said that the front line begins with the Putilov Bridge, - onward, Vzletnaya Street leads to the airport, which is already 5, controlled by the Ukrainian military. Nevertheless, the DPR checkpoint, after a mandatory inspection, passes private cars through the bridge. Barely moving away from the roadblock, you come across fresh funnels. The truce did not prevent Ukrainian mortars from firing on the 7 bridge of September, on Sunday. Then you move in zigzags: Ukrainian snipers can work here. My guide from the fighters serving on the front line in the area says that there was still glass in the Porsche car service station at the junction after the bridge before the armistice. Now they are not, and next to the gas station burns down the concrete structure.
We go to Spartak, a suburban village east of the airport. It is controlled by the DPR army, and Ukrainian artillery regularly fires at it. I take a photo of the twisted index “Dnepropetrovsk — Avdiivka”, and at this moment we fall under automatic fire from green stuff. You can hear the bullets click on the landing behind his back. We are in a hurry to get out of the fire and get to the nearest DPR checkpoint. In several queues, the DPR fighters are responsible for Zelenka, from where we were greeted. Towards the airport stretched abandoned gardens. Among the unwanted tomato peppers, the fighters show a hail of disc, fired at the September 7 outpost.
Spartak village has shops. Private cars pass through here, and more often you can meet local men on a bicycle. In the dilapidated village still live women and children. A little boy shoots me with a toy gun. At the store, an elderly woman talks about how yesterday shelling the burned down the opposite side of the street. I take photos of broken yards. Near the stele heroes of the Great Patriotic War, less than a day ago, the nearest courtyard was laid out. The stela itself was broken by shrapnel a week ago. In the school just got caught yesterday.
After sunset, the artillery fire begins. Our artillery is hitting the Ukrainian location (the former radar in. / H), Ukrainian - at the village of Spartak. Fragments rustle in the crowns of trees and click on the fences.
The morning of September 9 in Spartak is cool and quiet. At 7 in the morning, the locals are on the streets again: the cyclists go to the store, the women in their robes are standing outside their courtyards.
Who you do not talk to, you will hear one thing: "Guys, when will you chase them away?" No one has any illusions about the peacefulness of "Kiev".
We are returning to Donetsk. On the night of 8 on 9 of September in 1: howitzers and “grads” worked in the city. Stadium "Monolith" in the smoke. The fighters say that several phosphate mines exploded. On some streets (for example, Listoprokatchikov) "grads" flew almost every second house. If the Ukrainian artillerymen wanted to get into the locations of the DPR army, they missed at least a kilometer.
My guide, climbing from house to house in search of unexploded shells, concludes: “Grad” MLRS is not a precision weapon. Grads in the cities does not shoot any army in the world. And these people have neither conscience nor honor. ”
Here it is: a truce in Ukrainian.

Overview of the combat situation from the militia Prokhorov
Ukry from the long-range artel shot the center of Zugres - hits of shells are noted near the music and 10 secondary school and store. About the victims is not yet known.
In the area of Mariupol there was a shootout - near Cominternovo.
Also, with 17.00, shootouts began on the outskirts of Donetsk, and there is also shooting on the outskirts of Avdiivka (a section of the railway was destroyed there). And ukry themselves almost got on the train. At Noises destroyed ukrov checkpoint (tank).
The blow was struck around 17.00 Moscow time. on 25 in the area of the Lower Krynka
From the artel they covered the invaders' checkpoint near Verkhny Toretsky.
Traditional shootout in the area of Kirovsk-Zhdanovka.
Cannonade is heard in Dokuchaevka.
In Debaltsevo reinforcements came ukram, struck at their base - in the car-repair shops.
With a. Baranikovka (near Belovodsk - the occupied north of the LC), the partisans blew up Ukrop border guards on a land mine. By interception - 3 "200" and 2 "300".
Yesterday, all ukry worried about the fate of the dill checkpoint near Slavyanoserbsk. They beat a tambourine - it is surrounded on three sides. Now a new pechalka - on the air of snot, which is completely surrounded.
Dill recovers its light - the basis of the punitive baht is dissolved.
"After rotation, the war returns from 50% to 70% of battalion fighters," Avakov said.
The resignations of the Minister of Defense Valery Geletey and the head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Viktor Muzhenko demanded the commanders of the National Guard under the battalions. They declare that they were encircled in Ilovaysk through the fault of the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Nice to read - yet ukry downs. In reality, their armored forces are being deserted between infantry units.
From UkroSMI: “The Donbass battalion will be expanded into a regiment and equipped with heavy machinery,” commander Semen Semenchenko said at a press conference in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukrinform reports.
“The battalion will now be expanded to a regiment or battalion tactical group. We receive tanks, armored personnel carriers, - said Semenchenko.
He also informed that at the moment the Donbass battalion is awaiting its fighters from captivity. Negotiations on their release are conducted both at the state level and at the level of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional State Administration, but it is rather difficult.
At the same time, the battalion commander noted that those fighters who come out of captivity, and those who took part in the fighting for 2,5 months, are subject to rotation. "
Well, after the rotation, half the regiment will simply run away (see Avakov's statements above), and the battalion will again be.
Former President Leonid Kuchma said that during the hostilities in Afghanistan, Ukraine lost less military than in the 3 month of ATO.
UkroSMI: "During 10 years of the war in Afghanistan, we lost less than in the last three months," the ex-president said during a trip to Chernihiv, reports "Unian." At the same time, the politician expressed hope for an early cessation of hostilities. “Every war must end in peace. The sooner this happens, the less casualties we will suffer,” he said. He also said that the exact victims of the war are unknown. By the way, as of the beginning of September, the National Security and Defense Council officially reported 837 dead from the beginning of the ATO and 2626 wounded soldiers.
Recall that the losses of soldiers in Afghanistan were: killed and dead - 13 833 people, including 1979 officers and generals, wounded - 49 985 people. 6669 "Afghans" have become disabled, including the first group of disabled people - 1479 people. "
Even if he had in mind the immigrants from Ukraine who died in Afghanistan - these are more than 2,5 thousands of soldiers.
The remains of 51 are crying - they do not want to fight.
UkroSMI reports: "The fighters of the 51 Brigade and their relatives demanded that the military command be granted demobilized status.
Also, the soldiers offer to return all their brethren, seconded to other parts. A representative of the operational command headquarters, Vitaly Chelbyn, spoke with an outraged crowd. One of the questions asked by the soldiers at the rally was the location of the brigade commander Pivovarenko. It was he who led the fighters into the Ilovaisky cauldron, and then, together with the military, went for a breakthrough. After this information about him there is no. "
Porosenko dismissed the head of intelligence MO Dill.
Well cho - it is logical. After constant failures, the Khokhlov need a scapegoat.
As for who goes to such battalions for slaughter.
Slaughter is now. Just a few weeks ago. And before that - they followed the warriors. Vaughn, the same Dnepr-1 was always behind 93.
And everything was always the same - robbery, rape. What's in Happiness, that in Novosvetlovka (there is a video from the last one, where residents talk about the rape of their daughters and executions of those suspicious behind the monument to Lenin).
Any scum went into the hunt - went to kill the Russian Mirnyak with impunity. The slogan "Moskaliv - on knives" in reality did. It was the best incentive to join.
In addition, a significant part of the composition - convicts. They are reduced for this period.
Kostik "Semenchenko" strikes back - announced a reward for the Georgian mercenary Dobernan, his former fighter. And in the Dnieper, they are caught in military service in gambling establishments (see video).

Message from military analyst
"The current disposition of the parties allows us to make a number of obvious conclusions. The current Truce is fragile and does not suit both parties. Therefore, it will remain only until the regrouping of the Ukrainian army is completed. Considering the replenishment received by the third wave of mobilization, the total number of ATO forces is again brought to 55 - 60 thousand people. Of these, 20 - 30 thousand - in the first line. The total number of militia in both Republics is estimated at 29 - 30 thousand people. But not in the first line, but in total. This means that Kiev’s advantage is alive th force fell to double and continues to decline. Thus, it just needs to attack while the forces are not equal in number. The results of past battles showed that the militia significantly surpasses the Armed Forces of Ukraine in total combat effectiveness with an equal number of units. as a command. So, Kiev doesn’t have much options. If you don’t attack now, then never attack. ”

The weather here is changeable ... somewhere sometimes you can hear explosive shells, somewhere you can hear the characteristic “lash” of a shot from the svd. "Truce", in short.
For three days already we sleep somewhere. Someone on the old tire, and someone on the bare ground. The smell from ours - "Chanel №5". The guys went to town in the morning to shop. We bought delicious canned food, buckwheat, canned meat and some kind of fish.
Talked to the "old" (call sign) - a wise man! Veteran, Afghan. He said it was better for him to die than to be captured by the Nazis.
Saw a girl, "rosary", she is from Serbia ... - 28 years, good girl! And then there is the battle bell, the Cossack!
Tomorrow we will be replaced. A couple of days off can, or back to the fire. We are ready.
In the photo, our platoon.
