01: 20. One of the positions of the Nazi artillery near the village Kurdyumovka suddenly stopped shelling Zaytsevo. As it turned out later, the careless handling of matches led to the ignition and detonation of an ammunition depot and several guns of “ATO heroes”.

Relatives from Krasnoarmeysk, friends and acquaintances from Kurakhovo, Konstantinovka, Kramatorsk called, they had a stream of ambulances from 7 in the morning until 9, everyone was coming from Donetsk. For 5-6 machines, there are several goers to and fro. In the Ukrainian media already in the morning howl and cry, about the fact that the “separatists” are shelling the unfortunate gunners of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The same is in social networks.

Tell me, what was all this for? What combat missions did they solve during these attacks? To finish off the remaining, somehow miraculously at home, in the western and northern regions of Donetsk and Gorlovka? Or think someone else intimidated by these shelling? I, as I wrote, those who were afraid and could, left two years ago, some a little later. But basically, people are already returning, because of lack of money, they are traveling both from Ukraine and from Russia.

Over Saturday we were shot at 365 times. Not 365 mines and shells, and 365 times, and this may be two shells at a time, and maybe twenty.

All patience and health. "

        Namely - in the evening on Friday, Saturday and Sunday almost round the clock, and early on Monday morning.

        An interesting schedule of shelling at kaklov ..... As I understand it, on Friday evening they begin to thump without drying up, and in the early hours of Monday, alcohol ends and a terrible hangover begins ..))) Peaceful people beat randomly ... You should cover them all in the morning on Monday all at once!

          Yarosh announced the imminent collapse of Ukraine
          Ukraine may disintegrate before the end of 2016, Verkhovna Rada deputy Dmitry Yarosh said in an interview with the local Mir news agency.

          The ex-leader of the Right Sector, banned in Russia, spoke about a pessimistic scenario, according to which the country's margin of safety will last only a few months, until about the end of the year. “After that, we can get several quasi-states on the territory of Ukraine,” said Yarosh.

          The politician named the reasons for this situation: corruption of power and poverty of the population. Yarosh noted that he no longer believes that something can be changed legally.

        Have you heard that thoughts are material?
        Let us all together imagine how the troops (remnants) of the junta without any particular resistance left Kiev and are hastily moving in the direction of Lviv. Etc. etc.
        Something tells me that it will be so soon.

          Yes, they will be directly let in by Lviv, they will be the first to disown Kiev authorities if they smell fried and most likely crawl for protection to the Poles.

      I’m not looking at the whole summary published. Here is a paragraph that is not included in the summary:
      “That’s why it’s so hard to collect the last mines and shells from the former Soviet warehouses, deliver it all to the brigades and batteries, unload, clean it. So then shoot in the squares? That’s the point? "On Saturday, every next volley was 200 meters closer to my house, then flights began. This is what the Ukrainian battery commander thinks, who received an order from the battalion commander, and that from the brigade, and so on? Especially when the neighboring Ukrainian battery was blown away Does he call the battalion commander with questions - "What should I do? Continue shelling the civilian? What if it will fly over my battery now?" Well, I don't believe that they are all drunk or drug addicts or they are afraid of something there. Artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine always starts shelling at the same time along the entire length of the front, even though watch the clock. Strange and stupid war ... "

      Last year's tactics - the Armed Forces of Ukraine are white and fluffy, they launched the Terbats forward and "they are playing".
      The calculation is to exhaust the civilian population, to blow up the situation in LDNR from the inside.
      After all, to storm - it can come out sideways, and the "cyborgs" have taken off ...

      In Voroshilovgrad (Lugansk), the Pilot School (VVAUL) was disbanded in 1960. The helicopter center was in Lugansk since 1960 and was relocated to Voronezh in 1965. Established on the basis of the pilot school in 1967, the school of navigators (VAUS) ended its existence in 1993.
      How old is the last graduate of the VVAUL school today?
      How many helicopters are left in the helicopter center?

    Dear ones, to consider the Armed Forces and battalions as a bunch of drunkards and, it’s just silly if you carefully monitored the information, you will understand the rotation, the exercises, the supplies of equipment, the stocks of equipment, the great forces both technicians and people are concentrated, replenished with communications and protection. And then questions follow, and they started military operations? And what do you think should have been?

Along the way, not all the soldiers in the university at the mov are moving, we will hear English, German, Polish, and Dutch too.

    Here such a dilemma arises ... As far as we know, not a single self-respecting party to any conflict leaves unpunished systematic aggression and murder of its own citizens. Ours put pressure on the DPR and LPR to not respond, restrained. At the same time, peaceful people, militiamen perish and infrastructure is destroyed. That is, Putin creates the conditions for murders. And at the same time, he says that we support the choice of the DNI and LC. What a whiteness!
    Or what? Are you not sorry for yours?
    Do not accept. There is no lofty "goal" or "plan-idea" here. Some kind of cowardice.
    Well, Putin decided not to involve the Russian Federation in the conflict, (there’s only a small question, why then had to go to Minsk and give the chance to Ukrainians, talk about the Russian Federation as a party to the conflict. Let me remind you, the militias did not participate in the negotiations).
    Well, we are not taking part, but why keep the response from the DNI and LC. People die from inaction! And the blood is in the hands of the one who, through his actions, contributes to the continuation of the shelling, holding back the response of the militia. I do not understand!

    they will not advance. they don’t need it. toss firewood into the fire. the offensive they perfectly understand what will end. people simply nightmare and exhaust as the enemy can. and the people are already in turmoil. they wanted to go to Russia but they weren’t taken like Crimea. and life is not normal. I think supporters of kuev among those who doubt and hesitate over the past 2 years have increased. they got an insult to Russia, many appeared, who did not have it. I'm not talking about Russophobia. this is visible on social networks.
    one thing is good, probably, that all the weapons from their 404th were pulled to the demarcation line. if LDNR begins to attack then those already inside the country will not have nichrome. they rely on the Javelins, it seems in vain, but the kikimora said - figurines to them.
