Message from an eyewitness from Mariupol
“Since yesterday evening, new checkpoints and barricades have begun to appear in the city like mushrooms. The most unpleasant thing is that they occur in residential areas, near houses, schools, shops. Naturally, the people could not like it, because in the event of shelling of these fortifications, civilians will definitely suffer. In some places people even tried to take away sandbags and protest. Our local mouthpiece of the revolution immediately reacted to the legitimate indignation of the townspeople by embossing an article with the headline "No need to be afraid! New checkpoints are being built for the safety of Mariupol residents" and explaining in detail that everything that is being done now in the city is being done exclusively for the benefit of the Mariupol people. There is no need to convince, we have long known that they never shoot at checkpoints. And in general, the checkpoint is the most reliable place from the point of view of security. That is why they are being built in residential areas. "

“The militias broke through the Ukrainian defense line, eliminating the checkpoint near Yasinovataya. The militias continue to advance and break through the line of defense. According to the fighters of the 93rd brigade, today they lost control of the checkpoint near Yasinovataya. The Ukrainian military was forced to retreat several kilometers as a result of shelling by Grad, a strike tank group and a significant superiority of enemy manpower. "

Militia headquarters summary
“The Armed Forces of Novorossiya occupied settlements in the rear of the Debaltseve grouping of the Ukrainian army. The Artemovsk-Debaltseve route is under fire from the artillery of the republics (including the DRG), therefore, using this route to supply Ukrainian troops is fraught with difficulties. In fact, we can talk about the operational environment of this group.
According to the intelligence of the militia, the Ukrainian side is forming a unit of the National Guard, staffed by prisoners of correctional labor institutions serving sentences in the central regions of Ukraine. Prisoners are promised amnesty for participating in the so-called ATO.
The strengthening of the reconnaissance regime along the line of contact is noted. In the cities of Donetsk and Lugansk, measures are being taken to identify the sabotage and reconnaissance groups of Ukrainian security forces arriving in the capitals of the republics under the guise of returned civilians to commit terrorist acts at city facilities.

Combat situation overview from a military analyst
“I must say right away that there is still silence in the LPR, which means that the entire review will be devoted to the DPR.
Over the evening of September 16, it becomes clear that the junta has chosen to play without risk. That is, it will not try to turn the tide of battles with a counteroffensive. The reserves were thrown into the support of the groups found themselves surrounded. Breakthrough of two tank companies into the Donetsk airport (most likely removed from near Volnovakha). Attempts to break through Panteleimonovka to Zhdanovka (I think part of the forces were withdrawn from near Debaltseve). All this suggests that the junta is trying first to stabilize the northern front, which was beginning to fall apart.
Now, briefly on the directions.
Mariupol. A few days ago, the junta brought troops here. Now hastily throws them north. This indicates. that the BCH offensive achieved its goals. The junta's plans have been seriously disrupted. This is also shown by the situation in other directions.
South and south-west of Donetsk. The fighting almost died down. The junta is deploying forces to the north to help the airport.
North of Donetsk. On the 15th, by nightfall, the defeat of the junta grouping in the airport area was complete. They knocked out all the armored vehicles. But a message came about a breakthrough into this area of two tank companies (most likely from the Ugledar-Volnovakha area), which stabilized the front line for some time and the defeat of the junta's troops did not turn into a disaster.
Panteleimonovka. Fierce battles. The junta pulling up reserves is trying to turn the tide in its favor. Unsuccessful so far.
Debaltsevo. The junta is still conducting reconnaissance in force in various directions. But he is not yet on the offensive. Yesterday's search for Stakhanov "chilled" hot heads. Now they are looking for weaknesses in the defense of the VSN.
Results. In general, there is reason to believe that the VSN strike on the northern front confused the enemy's cards and forced them to save their encircled troops instead of the prepared offensive. Do they have powers beyond? I think there are, but they are clearly not enough for a general offensive. Hence, it is not a fact that the junta will be able to start it in the next week. If he can. The VSN will most likely focus on the destruction of the surrounded groupings of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (Zhdanovka, Debaltsevo, Airport). It makes no sense to advance further in light of the transfer of the junta's reserves in this direction. "

message from the DPR press center
“In Donetsk, over the past few days, 3 reconnaissance and sabotage groups of Ukrainian security forces have been liquidated. On the territory of the city of Donetsk alone, there were six large sabotage groups, each of which consisted of several dozen people. These people are engaged in reconnaissance of the city's infrastructure, adjust the fire of the Ukrainian artillery and themselves carry out provocative shelling of residential areas, hospitals, school and preschool institutions, life support facilities. Often, such groups include either civilians or representatives of law enforcement agencies who live or have lived in the city of Donetsk. This is due to the fact that the terrain in which they perform their inhuman actions is familiar to them, and they can quickly execute the orders given by the enemy. "

Overview of the combat situation from the militia Prokhorov
The high-status truce continued at night - after 23.00 periodically at the Donetsk airport, as well as - intensively with the use of Grad in the Kirovsk-Zhdanovka area.
Well, even at Yasinovataya, at the 93rd mechanized brigade, the militia recaptured another checkpoint, and they fled for several kilometers.
From Bochkala: “According to the fighters of the 93rd brigade, today they lost control of the checkpoint near Yasinovataya. The Ukrainian military were forced to retreat several kilometers as a result of the Grad shelling, the strike of the tank group and the significant superiority of the enemy's manpower. "
9:50 A truce resumed at the Donetsk airport - Ukrainian illegal armed groups, with the support of the 3rd special forces regiment and 93 mechanized brigades, opened artillery fire on residential buildings in Donetsk (a hostel and a five-story building are on fire).
In response, the militia's artillery strikes at the airport.
By the way, at night the dill fired at Yenakievo, in turn, the dill positions were also attacked near the town of Kurakhovo, Verkhnyaya Krynka and Orlovka. Now they are wrinkling the 25th air grave in Kommunar.
They also flew to Zhdanovka, under Happiness Aidar was pinched - in general, an incessant truce.
They reported that a military enlistment office was blown up in Lozova (Kharkiv region).
The militias did not take Uglegorsk - they only pushed the ukrov out of their positions. They retreated into the city - they did not enter it. Now there is no light or water in Uglegorsk.
Shootings have now resumed in the Popasnaya and Debaltseve areas.
About the truce.
Still, living people - no one wants to die. And with a massive assault, losses (from the militia) are inevitable. Ukry agreed to negotiations, asked for a reprieve to put themselves in order, evacuate the wounded, and eat in the end. They went for it, but ukry, as always, showed themselves incapable of negotiation.
- It seems like they said that they had no equipment left, but now it suddenly appeared? Where from? If they did, why didn't they bomb them into dust while they had no equipment and were defenseless?
“Some of the equipment was knocked out, but the part that was dug-no, and the forces of the people's militia of Donetsk and the militia are several times less than that of dill at the airport. It's like two against seven. Well, they put a couple to rest - and still there are a lot of them.
The artel and mortars were mostly combat-ready.
And the militia just ran out of ammunition (this is me talking about the waste, like, ammunition in echelons - if only it would be so!). "
- These bastards are constantly killing civilians in Donetsk, what ultimatums can there be to them other than complete destruction?
"The enemy is superior in numbers and weapons, he has erected a long-term defense - not everything is so simple"
- Then why not transfer combat-ready units near Donetsk and knock them out once and for all, instead of senselessly sitting near Mariupol?
“And because on the Southwestern Front (Mariupol-Volnovakha), ukry also concentrated a breakthrough of forces (the grouping is more numerous than near Donetsk), and the withdrawal of at least some number of combat-ready formations from there puts the entire south of the DPR (Novoazovsk-Telmanovo- Ambrosievka).
And then there's the Gorlovsky cauldron requires troops. And you can't leave him under any circumstances. You have to sacrifice something.
About the fact that the dill are transferring part of their forces from near Mariupol to Donetsk airport. No, under Donetsk reinforcements are coming directly from Ukraine (via Melitopol-Rozovka). On the contrary, the Mariupol grouping is strengthening. "
- Why don't the LPR units help?
“Because in the LPR, your worries are above your head. One threat to Pervomaisk is worth a lot, not to mention Stanytsia-Luhansk or the immediate danger to Luhansk in the area of the town of Schastya. And the strength of dill, I repeat, there is no less. "
- You know, it's like launching an offensive on Berlin in the Great Patriotic War, leaving besieged Leningrad and Paulus in the rear with a gop-company in Stalingrad.
“When Berlin was taken, the most powerful Kurland grouping was blocked - they did not finish it off, because they knew that after the capture of the capital of the Reich they would surrender sooner or later. The inmates there were called “armed prisoners of war”.
This is a trap for ukrov - depending on how you look. "
- Well, that means we are witnessing the consequences of the August offensive with swords bald in the South. The forces were stretched, they created a bunch of "cauldrons", but there was not enough for finishing off, and now it all grew into sluggish shoots, from which civilians are constantly dying. And as a result, along the entire length of the front, there is no place from where you can painlessly remove reserves and throw them in the right place.
“The offensive of the Southern Front was not an adventure. It was prepared for a long time, it is a pity that the implementation of all plans did not take place (there are many questions for the former command), and the dill, having revealed part of the plan, began a hasty withdrawal of troops.
The fact that there was not enough strength to finish off - because of the difference in the forces of the militia and Dill. But all the same - we bit off even more than planned.
And there is no trench warfare - there is already a new cauldron, the group at the Donetsk airport is trying to defend the dill in the Volnovakha region, a lot of dill is blocked near Debaltseve (by the threat of encirclement).
The absence of deep raids is due to the geography of the theater of operations - continuous agglomerations (in contrast to the rural south of the DPR) and a huge number of concentrated forces of dill (which was not in the south). "
- What you call the environment, the environment can be called a very big stretch. How many times one could read here about the encirclement and finishing off dill, but it seems that they have a small factory somewhere where cannon fodder is riveted on a continuous conveyor. It would seem, surrounded and beaten in one cauldron, suddenly appear in another, and again surrounded and again beaten, and so on ad infinitum. And after the armistice, it feels so much that there was no southern offensive, again dill are climbing from all cracks.
“There was no positional war even in Slavyansk (except for unsuccessful attempts to return Karachun).
And the environment of dill has always been not tactical, but fire. And a significant part of them escaped, losing people and equipment. The difference in capabilities and weapons is too great. Tank columns cannot be destroyed with five to six 82-mm mortars.
There is just a lot of dill, and the number of militias is several times less. Dill is more likely to rip out when militias run out of ammo.
Do not project the power and capabilities of the Russian Army onto the militia. "
- Take at least the same long-suffering Aydar. Since the beginning of the war, I have already lost count of how many times he was "smashed", and they are more alive than all the living.
And how many compositions did he change? At best, 10 percent remained of the original.
The Fritzes had the 6th Army in 1944 in southern Ukraine. And this does not mean at all that it was not destroyed in Stalingrad. - Even when the southern offensive operation began, one of the leaders of Novorossiya said that the militias were replenishing. Lied? Plus, dill seems to be exterminated by almost hundreds and thousands, but the balance of power does not change?
“The replenishment is going on, but the decline is also going on. In Slavyansk, out of 10 who came, seven left on the first day, and two more - within a week. And this is not counting the dead, prisoners, missing and wounded.
Dill is exterminated by the hundreds during major operations. which take several days. Further - the dill replenishes its units, because it now has at least 400 thousand armed people, and in the Donbas it keeps no more than 60 thousand. "

Message from a militia from Horlivka
“Briefly about the situation ...
Well, we sat surrounded - they will sit tapericha dill. The Makeevka-Gorlovka-Yenakiyevo ring is closed. The number of fascists is up to 2500 people, with equipment and everything that is required. True - it decreases every day, yes. Whom we have time - those we will rob, those who are not - well, no, so no. Debaltseve is also in the ring - and the local dill does not have a sweet life either.
There is light, water, internet, mobile communication. In certain areas, there are difficulties with the MTS network, there were difficulties with the Life network. As Kyivstar worked in full, it works. The wired Internet stopped working only when the electricity was turned off for a period of more than a day.
There are products for sale. Although there are difficulties with some socially significant ones, yes. Not that horror, but there is little. For example, with vegetable oil.
The route to Donetsk is under the control of the Armed Forces of Novorossiya. Although it is being shot through, but cleaning work is underway.
With regards to the sketches about the so-called "split of the field commanders" ...
Major General Bezler is not a fool, since he signed the document, and even the very first one. I think that Mozgovoy will not be a fool in his Luhansk region.
Well, if in general, a fierce truce continues on the territory of Novorossiya, with the use of armored vehicles, as well as cannon and rocket artillery. True, dill, as always, is at war exclusively with women, children and the elderly. "

Interview with Vladislav Brig: Donbass will never be part of Ukraine
The head of the international information service department of the political department of the DPR Ministry of Defense, Vladislav Brig, told about what is happening in Donbass.
According to Vladislav, the militia is waiting for the Ukrainian army to leave the borders of Donbass. Punishers are still shelling Novorosiya Army positions and residential areas. What they reached yesterday in the Verkhovna Rada should have been discussed in March. During this time, too much blood has been shed, and the people of Donbass will never want to be part of Ukraine.
The Ukrainian army poses a threat only in the sense that it shells residential areas and kills civilians. As a military force, they are nothing. A truce is necessary in order to exchange prisoners. The captured militias have been suffering for months. They are tortured, bullied, turned into animals. What can we say, when children and women in a terrible state are handed over to us, and the punishers pass them off as FSB agents.
Potroshenko is gradually beginning to be regarded as an enemy of the people. The oppositional Ukrainian government wants to see chaos, blood of the Russian-speaking population, genocide and famine. The West needs war to get closer to Russia and further dismantle it, seize resources and continue to control the world.
Sooner or later we will break through the information blockade. In the near future, people will know the truth, and they will be able to change their minds. Further bloodshed must be prevented. It is necessary to give a good kick to the brown plague so that it flew to its western master and never returned.

“The ceasefire will end very soon, there will be an offensive, and on several fronts simultaneously.

In Novoazovsk, refugees should immediately contact the militia commandant's office, after which they will be immediately resettled in boarding houses and dispensaries. There is a large accumulation of armored vehicles in Sakhanka and its environs. My friend has not yet learned to distinguish it, so for her all armored vehicles are tanks. True, there are variations: tanks on wheels, tanks with doors, larger tanks, minitanks, etc. Oh yes! Such a moment: she never made it to Novoazovsk, because she was given a condition: either there or back, but so as to hit the road to Novoazovsk and then return to Mariupol is impossible.

“Regarding the events with the incomprehensible movements of the commanders, Strelkov said the following.
First. In Donetsk, according to him, everything is calm. Who is "Lieutenant General Korsun", who has been fighting since April, he does not know. Therefore, he asks the commanders of the middle and lower echelons not to pay attention to what the senior commanders share there, and to prepare for hostilities, which are inevitable anyway. After they begin, all disagreements and pulling the blanket over themselves will become insignificant.
Second. According to him, the coup that took place is not connected with Moscow. It is possible that there are some people on whom the “signers” are guided, but on the whole there is no special decision that radically changes the situation and the alignments. We are talking about the independent actions of individual commanders of individual detachments, and the number of these detachments is clearly insufficient to bear the proud name of the "United Armed Forces".
Third. Strelkov said that the incident does not and will not have any effect on the current supply of the detachments. "

Corpses and wounded residents who came under fire in the morning began to arrive at the Kirovskoye hospital. One man was torn to pieces, a woman was seriously wounded. There is only one surgeon in Kirovskoe. There are no doctors. Wounded every day. Send doctors to the city to SAVE civilians. Again today a shell hit the city, glass flew out on the 16th block. The Kramnitsa store was destroyed. There is again a huge funnel near the Kramnitsa store. Apparently, they again fired rockets at Kirovskoye.

In the Luhansk region, panic broke out among the people. Light disappeared almost everywhere - even where there was no war. As of 18.30, transformers are on fire at the TPP. It is impossible to get there because of the fighting. Experts say that the fire is about to spread to the power units, which are most likely mined (Aidar's battalion commander Sergei Melnichuk told about this in advance). So far, no one can predict the consequences in this case. Now the station, as the power engineers say, has completely "gone to 0". This means that the entire Luhansk region, which was recently fed by the only thermal power plant, was left without electricity. "

A summary of the Army of the South-East for September 17: Punishers continue to kill civilians in Donbass
During the day, the situation did not undergo significant changes and remained tense. Ukrainian troops violated the agreements reached on maintaining the ceasefire ten times.
From 10.00 to 11.00, from the side of Nizhnaya Krynka, the Nazis fired at residential buildings in Khanzhenkov.
At 10.35:2 a.m., houses in the vicinity of the Putilovsky bridge were subjected to artillery fire in Donetsk. 3 people were injured. And after repeated shelling by punishers on Chapaev Street, an apartment building was partially destroyed, XNUMX people died.
From 10.10 to 11.30, from the Novomaryevka area along Zuevka, the punishers twice inflicted massive fire strikes using the Grad MLRS and barrel artillery. 4 residential buildings were burned down. Three civilians were killed. A child is injured.
From the side of Maryinka from 13.20 to 14.00, Nazi units fired mortar fire on the outskirts of Donetsk, during which 8 civilians were injured.
As a result of today's shelling, N. Kirovskoye village killed 5 local residents, destroyed 4 houses and a store.
In the area of Debaltseve, punitive forces attacked the positions of the people's militia twice to no avail.
In the area of Donetsk airport, units of the junta troops fired indiscriminately from small arms at each other.
Over the past 2 days, the counterintelligence of Novorossiya identified and destroyed 3 Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance groups.
The intelligence of the militia reports on the measures continued by the ukrofascist command to build up military groupings.

Trapped near Zhdanovka, Bandera continue to carry out artillery strikes on residential buildings in the settlements of Olkhovka and Zuevka. The fire is haphazard, and is probably conducted solely to raise the morale of the surrounded punishers. In Debaltseve, the Armed Forces of Ukraine made an attempt to break out of the cauldron the day before, attacking the positions of the Army of Novorossiya, but were repulsed, suffering heavy losses. It can be stated that the shock groups assembled by the junta under the cover of a truce are reliably blocked by the troops of Novorossiya. And now there is no need to talk about any counter-offensive by Bandera. That is, the punishers failed to achieve any advantages due to the truce "

Commentary on the situation in Donbas by the evening of September 17 from blogger and military analyst "colonelcassad"
1. Strategically, the overall situation has changed little. The intercepted communications of the junta groupings trying to encircle Gorlovka create a solid reserve for major purely military successes in the event of a transition of hostilities to a more active stage. It is still impossible to speak of a complete encirclement, but if the current trends continue, within 2-3 days at least one of the groups may be in a full-fledged cauldron. In general, the enemy, having moved on to the formation of shock fists, due to a lack of forces, cannot maintain the proper density of the front along the entire length, therefore, even surpassing the army of Novorossia in numbers and number of armored vehicles, the junta has significant weaknesses in the front - the area between Mariupol and Volnovakha, front north of Luhansk, gaps between the groups attacking Yasinovataya and Debaltseve-Soledarsk holding the ledge. Significant forces of the junta are involved in holding the deliberately disadvantageous ledges. The current statements of the Novorossiya army that allegedly "the largest cauldron in the entire war has been created" is certainly an exaggeration, the cut off communications from a group of 2000-2500 soldiers, which is clearly inferior to both the Southern Cauldron 1.0 and the Ilovaisko-Amvrosievsky cauldron. Nevertheless, this is an indicator that the junta has regularly climbed into the boilers and continues to do so.
2. In terms of concentration, the main forces of the junta have already been pulled into the Donbass, the junta cannot yet significantly increase the grouping - taking into account the planned rotation of units and combat-ready units deployed to the front, the junta will be able to replenish the group only by putting into operation the restored battalion-tactical groups of previously defeated units , and their fighting qualities seem to be very dubious due to large losses in people and materiel. In fact, without the 4th wave of mobilization, the junta will not be able to significantly increase the size of its group, which remains approximately at the level of early July 2014. Taking into account the failed 3 waves of mobilization, the effectiveness of the 4th also causes a certain skepticism. All this is aggravated by the problem with the equipment - according to various estimates, the junta lost about 60-70% of the equipment available in the Donbass (and, what is most terrible for the junta, more than 220 armored vehicles of varying degrees of combat capability went to the army of Novorossia, which has already commissioned about a quarter up to a third of captured trophies). Of course, there are still a lot of tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers, self-propelled guns and MLRS in warehouses and repair bases, but in August and September the replenishment could not compensate for the huge losses. Attempts to get equipment from NATO countries and attempts to buy equipment under foreign trade defense contracts are an attempt to close the hole in the hardware.
3. The situation with the Donetsk airport remains the same. The junta is holding him back, despite the fact that the army of Novorossiya blocked him once again. The junta systematically fired at the positions of the militia with tanks and guns, the militia responded by filling up the airport with shells and missiles. The absence of large calibers here does not allow the enemy to be smoked out of the ramified system of underground and concreted structures that allow the enemy to retain manpower. Nevertheless, losses in equipment and supply problems lead to attempts to unblock the airport and push new forces there. Some attempts lead to heavy losses, when the breakers fall under the concentrated artillery fire of the army of Novorossiya, on the other hand, there are facts of a breakthrough during the "strange ceasefire", which Strelkov reported the other day.
To the reasonable question of where Strelkov is aware of these events, I remind you that his field commanders are still fighting there, starting with General Petrovsky, so Strelkov is well aware of what is happening there at the front.
Regarding the airport, it is also worth mentioning the statements of the junta media, which indicated a certain fact of negotiations in which the junta allegedly offered to surrender the airport to the Novorossiya army in exchange for the withdrawal of Novorossiya troops from Mariupol by 5 km. A somewhat strange proposal, given the tenacity with which the junta clings to the airport. But perhaps lately, the feasibility of keeping it became questionable and they tried to exchange it for some kind of operational benefits at other sites. In general, so far this option has remained only at the level of conversations.
4. To the north of Luhansk, due to the organizational weakness of the military units of the LPR, which do not have a unified coordination, the enemy slowly withdraws in a number of sectors, although nothing significant is actually happening - the battles were going on in the area of Happiness, Stanitsa Luhansk, Slavyanoserbsk and Veselaya Gora, so they go. A wide coverage and encirclement of the junta grouping north of Lugansk did not work, the junta's attack on Stanitsa Lugansk in the second half of August thwarted the ambitious ideas of intercepting the junta's communications on the Novoaydar-Happiness line, as a result of which it all came down to pushing back the enemy and protracted battles for Happiness. Of the essential, it is worth mentioning the explosions at the Lugansk TPP, as a result of which most of the region was left without electricity. Judging by the fact that the commander of the "Aydar" punitive battalion recently threatened to blow up the thermal power plant on camera in the event of the Novorossiya army attacking Happiness, the punishers did carry out their threat. In general, while power lines are being pulled from Russia to the LPR to "feed" the rebellious republic, on the other hand, the junta continues to purposefully destroy the social infrastructure.
5. The shelling of cities and towns of Novorossiya did not actually stop for a day since the signing of the so-called "truce". Donetsk and adjacent cities are especially affected, which are bombarded every day, with fairly large-scale destruction and casualties among the civilian population. Oriented, from 6 to 17 September, about 55-60 civilians were killed on the territory of the DPR. Since it was not possible to completely clear out the positions of the junta around Donetsk (which was expected on the wave of the victorious offensive interrupted by the "truce"), it still has enough suitable areas that allow covering almost all areas of Donetsk and its suburbs. As before, they have no military meaning and are connected exclusively with the goals of destroying the civilian population and social infrastructure. In general, until the enemy is pushed back west of Karlovka, driven back from Yasinovataya and cleared from Zhdanovka, one cannot count on the cessation of shelling.
6. On the situation with the "unified command of Novorossiya." Apparently, no "unified command" was formed, because the signatories decided to declare some rights to power and humanitarian aid without consulting the others. Strelkov has already commented today that this act of arbitrariness does not pose any serious threat to the current situation. Apparently, what is happening is a continuation of the showdown associated with the Pridnestrovians and Antyufeev, the fall of which exacerbated internal contradictions associated, in addition to attempts to clean up the "revolutionaries of the first wave", with the struggle for control over humanitarian supplies, which largely determine the strength of certain militia units. If you look closely at the list of signatories, it is not difficult to see that there are people who have not been spoiled by supplies or who have dropped out of the circle of those who controlled them. The largest supplies are closed to Zakharchenko's "Oplot", hence the simple fact that significant forces of "Oplot" are now concentrated in Donetsk itself in order to prevent both attempted coup d'etat in the light of Zakharchenko's accusations of treason, and attempts to forcefully redistribute control over humanitarian supplies ...
Of course, all this bickering has nothing to do with the "single command", and therefore this initiative did not meet with a broad response among the media people of Novorossia and looks like an initiative of a group of people, which was not coordinated with either the military or the political leadership of the people's republics - a characteristic moment, none of the famous people of the LPR in this “united command” was noticed and did not support him in any way. Threats from the "Varyag" DRG with demands to obey the incomprehensible Korsun, of course, are of a very dubious nature, since there is simply no power to subordinate the "Strelkovtsy", "Oplot" or "Ghost" to this command. Actually, the language of such ultimatums from not the strongest detachments is clearly not the way to rally the detachments of Novorossiya. It is noteworthy that Mozgovoy, who was also supplied with loads in a very metered manner, understands this and disowned such initiatives. However, as Strelkov correctly noted, with the transition of hostilities to a more active stage, the signatories simply will not have time to deal with the nonsense that they are now doing.

Message from militia Prokhorov
Meanwhile, the truce is in full swing - both at the Donetsk airport and in Yenakiyevo (ukry near the Poltavskaya mine and in the village of Shyrokyne they are beating the city, in response - at them), as arguments for the truce, the parties use the artel and Grady.
On the southern front, dill was thrown away from Dokuchaevsk and Novotroitsky, now Ukrainian illegal armed groups and army units are building fortifications in Volnovakha.
Again, a truce came to Chernukhino (ukry there). In general, hell began in Makeyevka.
Well, Pervomaisk again gets it.
In the occupied territory of LPR - near the famous Red Talovka, border guards were blown up on a mine - 2 "200".
An intensive ceasefire continues near Debaltsev - periodically shelling and battles are going on in Sofievka, Tsentralny, Komissarovka, Chernukhino. South of Chernukhino, closer to Fashchevka, the positions of dill were attacked near the village. Redkodub.
About the situation in Nizhnaya Krynka / Kommunarsk - everyone says that in the position of dill - into meat.
At Kirovsky, the positions of dill and Novoorlovka were attacked.
In addition to the Donetsk airport, a truce is underway in Peski (which does not allow reinforcements of dill to break into the airport). What is there - the positions of the Ukrovs near Kurakhovo (west of Donetsk) were attacked.
Regarding the Gorlovsky cauldron - now ukrov is attacked near the village. Noises (10 km from Dzerdzhinsk).
On the Southern Front, the Donetsk-Mariupol highway is blocked. The militias are attacking the dill near the village. Granitnoe (a few kilometers north of Mariupol).
About Krinichnaya from eyewitnesses: “I saw abandoned dugouts there, the last 7 ukrov were laid yesterday in the area of the Korsun village”.
Ukry continue to fire Kirovsk.
And this - Tymchuk saw his sight. He offers to leave the airport, which he correctly assesses as a trap for troops coming out.
And even - Debaltsevo, in order to prevent a new boiler.
Near Happiness there is a battle for the bridge.
In Chuguev (Kharkov region - or is it occupied by the KhNR?), A military unit was attacked, explosions and gunfire were heard. No, this time it is Aydar's people who are high or drunk.
“According to ATN, the incident occurred at the exit from Kharkov towards Chuguev, near the Gorizont microdistrict, at the traffic police checkpoint.
A queue was opened for the inspectors from the machine. According to eyewitnesses, there were three of them.
One of the officers on duty at the checkpoint was wounded. The dead have not been reported.
According to the preliminary version, fighters of the Aydar volunteer battalion opened fire when their car was stopped for inspection. One of the fighters was allegedly in an inadequate state, he also started shooting.
Now the victim is hospitalized, the police are investigating the circumstances of the incident. "
As ukry are afraid of the militias - they already say that the Donetsk airport is being stormed by Russian special forces.
From UkroSMI: "In Donetsk, the airport is being stormed by special forces of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Russia, Channel 5 broadcasts, citing a source in the SBU."
The quality of the dill has dropped, but that doesn't make it any better. If earlier they met face to face and everything was decided by personal qualities and training, and artillery strikes were relatively rare, and the dill even tried to get somewhere, where there was a militia (I remember their hunt for Nona - they always smeared, hit civilians, but at least somehow- then you can justify).
Now the ukry do not enter into close combat, but the power of artillery strikes and their randomness have increased by orders of magnitude - they just bluntly beat them not in squares - in peace people, in order to intimidate, revenge is unknown for what.
In general, they used to be evil fools, now they are stupid cannibals.
What losses must be inflicted to defeat Dill? And even the same amount - the ukry will not bear such a defeat of equipment and losses in personnel.
Why dill never learned to fight. They learn when they are at war with the enemy, and not when the peaceful people are pressed. And now ZSu are punitive. And the punisher (the one who kills the civilians on purpose, for some reason this does not happen in case of accidental murders) simply physically cannot be a good soldier. Something breaks inside, and often there is no move on that side.
The mercenary bats, in addition, clearly abuse combat (often self-made) and simply pharmacology and alcohol. Then they freak out without a boyan, and many in the ZSU sin with this (yesterday the whole Volnovakha caught the lieutenant, the commander of the reconnaissance detachment of the 72nd mech brigade, who caught such an arrival that he began to shoot at his own people and civilians).
They are often petty. The summer trick was to yell into a megaphone (exclusively in front of the local militias, the riflemen were not fought): “Russian soldiers! You fought bravely, but now resistance is useless! Surrender your weapons! Hot food, tea and our hospitality are waiting for you! " Some were fought (especially after the shelling) - they went to surrender. And at them from machine guns, and at the same time shouted: “Katsapy! You don't get it! we are not fascists! "
Got it already. Dill is worse than the Nazis.
As for the lower level, the dill did not have people similar to the Slavs - Lynx, Balu and especially Motorola, who have already entered the local epic as successful commanders and legendary fighters (and now there is a whole series).
There was a Doberman from the Donbass Bath - he promised to cut the Chechens, and then on his knees he asked for forgiveness for his filthy tongue. There is a schmuck - Valera Ananyev from the 25th, who created a fake photo report about his heroic behavior in captivity, and then promised Strelka to kill WWII veterans.
And that's all - they have no heroes. For there cannot be heroes among the punishers.

“We are alive! - somehow got out. I will say, like Tymchuk - there are almost no losses. But I won't lie, we lost our mineral. Leonid, bright memory to you. We are no longer responsible for the airport. The National Guard troops are retreating, firing back from tanks.

Message from the "Bad Soldier" (Deputy Minister of Defense of the DPR Intelligence)
"And hello again. If it is short, I. I. must recall the so-called General Korsun, who first appeared in Kramatorsk just before my arrival in early May as a mythical representative of the GRU and dramatically faded as soon as I became interested in this figure. The most ordinary adventurer, but able to charm some unstable. Yesterday night he was detained as a result of a successful and carefully planned special operation jointly carried out by Major General I. Bezler and some military intelligence officers. I am sick and tired of the dew in tanks. I dictate them in large letters - I considered them in 22.20 PERSONALLY, unlike some doubters. Most of them left the airport with the wounded the next morning.
It's hard for us at the airport, but let's take it and Marinka - they will not be able to fire at Donetsk. We try our best ... "

Summary report from the 1 Interbrigade of the South-East for September 17
The past 24 hours of militant truce on the fronts of New Russia brought death and destruction to the residents of Donbass again.
Donetsk People's Republic.
Donetsk - at night, Putylovka and Gladkovka were fired upon by punishers, in the morning - the fighting at the airport intensified (the militia artillery attacked the positions of the national militaries in response to the shelling of residential areas). It is reported that in addition to mercenaries, the 3-th regiment of the Special Forces and the 93-I OMBR conduct military operations at the airport. During the day, recorded three attempts punitive escape from the environment, all repulsed. There is also a high level of sabotage and terrorist threat in the city - the Fascist mobile DRGs make a sudden bombardment of the residential area with mortars, after which they move; saboteurs are also engaged in reconnaissance activities and artillery adjustments (6 reports on such groups of several dozen punishers, 3 are eliminated). Also reported about the targeted shelling from the standpoint of ukrovermaht St. Iversky nunnery, where there is a particularly valuable icon.
Suburbs - the militia confirms that between the villages of Makeyevka, Gorlovka and Enakievo are surrounded by 2500 punishers, as well as armored vehicles and heavy weapons.
Gorlovka - calm, restoration of damaged infrastructure.
Makeyevka - in the morning, the village of Khanzhenkovo was again fired upon (from the standpoint of punishers in the village of Nizhnyaya Krynka). The militias, in turn, are firing at the punishers in the village of Verkhnyaya Krynka.
Enakievo - at night was unmarked by artillery punishers.
Marinka - the artillery of the militia struck the punishers entrenched in the villages of Kurakhovo and Orlovka.
Khartsyzk - again militia forces attacked the positions of the ukrovermht (25-I AeMBr) in the area of the village of Kommunar (in the city itself, the national guards repress civilians).
Zhdanovka - remains a place where large groups of punishers are concentrated, from where shelling is conducted. Makeevka, Yenakiyevo, Kirovskoe, and others. In response, the militia organizes the national guilds of art-pressing.
Uglegorsk - not fully taken by the militia; Ukrovermaht partially pushed back from their positions. Active clashes were not observed.
Torez - shelling from a punitive position was carried out at night; damaged infrastructure.
Debaltseve - the ring around the dill that languishes in the cauldron continues to shrink (several small settlements are occupied in the rear of the ukrovermht group surrounded here). The only way to retreat and supply supplies left over from the national security forces is the Debaltseve-Artyomovsk highway. It is not yet possible to assert that it is fully controlled by the forces of the militia, there are several “shot” sites, and the rest are controlled by the DRG. In general, the operational environment of parts of the ukrovermaht (in the city - 25-I AEMBR, on the outskirts - the national guard) this place took place, but the cleaning of such a large-scale boiler will be no less long than it was near Ilovaisk.
Yasinovataya - do not subside battles in the vicinity. Part of the 93 th OMBr after the hardest battle (the militia struck a massive strike from the MLRS Grad, organized a tank attack and skillfully used the advantage in numbers) recognize the loss of control over the strategically important roadblock at the entrance to the city and retreat by several kilometers.
Kirovskoye - again the punishers cruelly fired at the city, deliberately firing from the MLRS "Grad" at residential areas (the shelling was carried out from under Zhdanovka). 2 civilians died, 1 injured. In the evening and at night there were fights.
Aleksandrovsky district - the day the shelling of the settlement was recorded. Green (who shot, not specified).
Lugansk People's Republic.
Lugansk - there is no information about armed clashes.
Svatovo - reported vandalism ukronatsistskih bastards over the memorial to the heroes of the Great Patriotic War.
Happiness - local clashes with the punitive battalion "Aydar".
Popasnaya - there are no data on shelling, it is reported about collisions with the use of small arms.
Starobelsk - during the battles captured 9 natsgadov.
Rubezhnoye - ukrovermaht concentrates artillery (5 MLRS "Grad").
N.P. Lozovaya (Kharkiv region) - movement of a large column (up to 20 units) within the MLRS Smerch (or “Grad”) and trucks in the direction of the settlement was recorded. Pavlograd (Dnipropetrovsk region).
Mariupol - the strengthening of the military infrastructure of the natsgad continues, new roadblocks in residential areas of the city are being built (9, the fighters are preparing to hide behind the population).
Svidomye can not calm down: they have little civil war, which killed more than 3000 people, and a ruined economy. In the zone of so-called. ATO ukroarii no longer tear - it is not on the Maidan against the unarmed "Berkut" crowd to fight. By the way, punitive and 70 years ago did not differ in military skill - who can recall at least one glorious victory of “Galicia”? In the Third Reich, no fools were sitting, so their Galician serfs were not trusted with serious operations - a coward punisher in a fair fight. And in the management of the state, Svidomo is stupid - how else can the idea of the Maidan "Vlady" explain the idea of forming a division of the National Guard from prisoners in the central regions of the former Ukraine? Arming criminals is a masterpiece of svidotupizm.
But in general, ukroarii - this is a great nation, and quilted jackets envy them. What kind of people, what kind of persons: Stepan Bandera, Roman Shukhevych, Sashko Bily, Oleg Lyashko. But now the line of heroes who definitely need fat, will become denser - Andrei Chikatilo, according to his son Yuri (by the way, active maydaun) “as a Ukrainian, was a nationalist, although 30 was a member of the CPSU for years”. Obviously, 30 years of the brave Svidomo A. Chikatilo, faithful to the ideas of Stepan Bandera, in spite of the klyatym Muscovites and personally bloody tyrant Leonid Brezhnev, and from the inside destroyed the totalitarian monster, tormented Ridnu nenku. And the Katsaps were shot in the basements of the bloody KGB to break the free spirit of Great Ukrii! In fact, an intelligent follower of European values (believed that “if Ukraine had separated, then it would have lived at least like Poland”), Andrei Chikatilo became the first in the “Heavenly Hundred”. By the way, isn’t the Chekist Putin personally from the portable pocket “Buka” interrupted his rapid flight?
Without leaving the alcoholic delirium, the mouthpiece of Goebbels - the National Security and Defense Council - reports that the fighting was going on in the area Lower Krynka, Sands,, Redkodub, Granite, Kurakhovo, Novoorlovka, Debaltseve, Shumi, Popasna, Stanitsa Luganskaya, Novoselovka, Central, Mius, Chernukhino. I did not find the loss of ukrovermaht (by the way, honor and conscience, too). Together with them, tearfully delirious and Dima Tymchuk - “we could very well erase the militants in fine dust (which is what happened), do not throw Putin on the Donbass hordes of his regular army. You can, of course, put hundreds of thousands of citizens under arms, and donbass blood, but this is hardly the best option. ” What a terrible drug grown on garlic beds Maidan, that citizen so pins ?!
Civilians (killed / wounded) - 5 / 1
Militiamen (killed / wounded) - 2 / 7
Punishers - the militias do not specify; according to the National Security and Defense Council, one look at each punisher killed hundreds of millions of special forces of the GRU, 5 combat bears and 1 submarine, among the natsgad "no losses".
In general, the usual combat day has passed. truce - European-style ukry are ready to repeal the law “on special status” (Yaytsenyukh blinked militantly from under the glasses), Dogs again maydanit in the center of Kiev. What will bring us the next day - we will see.
