Today’s actions of the ATO forces were quite productive. In 04:40 a battle for Dzerzhynsk and Horlivka began. And at 16:00 Ukrainian flag was raised over Dzerzhynsk. Immediately after that the ATO forces advanced upon Novhorodske and that put terrorists into a difficult position. It is likely that the situation reminded Girkin of the story of the Maginot Line in WWII. To hole up behind embankment is not an option for terrorists anymore. Given that Ukrainian troops approximately at the same time liberated Myronivskyi outflanking the fortified area of terrorists, Horlivka got into encirclement. This successful maneuver will probably finish off Bezler’s (callsign – “Bes”) grouping. Not without reason did Bes start to tell about the U.S. and NATO tanks. It is this operation that should be described in the books on the history of war, not the battle of Kramatorsk media wrote about at military experts’ suggestion.
The situation is similar with Karlivka. It was quietly outflanked from the west and then Pisky was taken up. Given that Marinka is also locked, as well as highways between Luhansk and Donetsk, terrorists began to move away from Donetsk towards Snizhne and Starobesheve. If Russia does not dare send troops (in the light of the recent developments no one can tell that for sure) it is likely that militants will try to break through towards the Russian Federation (of Enslaved People) in the area of Starobesheve and Marynivka (a village near Kuybyshevo).
However, if H-hour comes and the Russian Federation sends troops (by the way, some experts predict it on July 22), attacks can come from the border areas of Matveev Kurgan, Kuybyshevo, Novoshakhtinks, Kamensk-Shakhtinsky, Suzha and Millerovo. In those areas large grouping of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are concentrated.
At that we should remember that terrorist began to accumulate their forces in Pervomaisk: this is where they move when falling back from the liberated areas. Messages from the locals that terrorists returned to Luhanske after ATO forces had liberated it and advanced further sound alarming. It is noted that militants know trails from Popasna and Pervomaisk via Troitske towards Myronivskyi.
There are several open questions about Lysychansk-Severodonetsk-Rubizhne area. Taking into account that Rubizhne is already liberated and, moreover, ATO forces consolidated there and got control over the eastern direction, we can expect an attack from terrorists towards Pervomaisk. It is possible that terrorists choose to attack the ATO grouping in the north of Luhansk and Luhutine. We however hope that the militants will try to fall back via Snizhne towards the Russian Federation; the militants from Luhansk may try the same, especially because Izvaryne is still under their control. Although it should be noted that Vladimir Putin (callsign – “Dickhead”) does not expect them there, at least not packed [into coffins] and their tours to Ukraine came with one way ticket.
Donetsk and Luhansk terrorists lose support among civilians catastrophically fast. This happened after everyone could see that the militants cynically shelled residential areas trying to play on emotions of the civilian population and give their crimes for the actions of Ukrainian military. Besides, activists and patriots from Luhansk report that the leader of LPR terrorist organization V.Bolotov plans another playacting in which he is going to introduce “allegedly subversive detachment of Ukraine” formed from previously captivated people. The detachment is planned to play the role of a scapegoat which will be blamed by LPR militants for all terrorist act against civilians performed by them [terrorists]. It is also reported they terrorists try to break people by all means including tortures. The number of captives and their location are currently not known.
Today near Lysychansk ATO servicemen took 5 militants captive. Two of them are citizens of the Russian Federation; one of them is a citizen of Israel. As reported by the ATO HQ, the terrorists were betrayed by their own leaders (“Russians never forsake their own [people]?” – forsake, with knobs on). During the interrogation it became known that the Russians came to Ukraine for ideological reasons, namely, “to defend the Christian faith”. “Wild Orthodoxy” in the Russian Federation flourishes; very often at the Moscow Patriarchate priests’ suggestion people travel to Ukraine to kill and maim people under the command of leaders with speaking names like “Bes” (Daemon in English). The world has turned upside down, what surrealism!
Finally, despite the positive today, there are cherished militants in the liberated areas. Today there were alarming reports from Slovyansk and Krasnyi Lyman about possible sabotage in those areas.
Major Developments in the International Arena in the Context of the Situation in Ukraine
The media reports about the full access of the OSCE experts to wreckage of the Boeing-777 don’t fit to reality. Their actions and the ability to move are very limited. The terrorists don’t allow the monitoring of the process of extracting and loading bodies on special reefers to deliver the bodies to Kharkov. Nevertheless the representatives of Malaysia get ready to participate in the investigation.
The United Nations Security Council passed a resolution that the attack brought down the Malaysia Airlines plane in eastern Ukraine. The militants who control the area around the crash site must cease hostilities in the area and ensure access of the international representatives to the place of the catastrophe of the Boeing-777 to investigate what happened and then hold those responsible accountable. During the preparation of the summary the meeting has not yet ended, so it is early to talk about the results.
The Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has proposed to send the United Nations police mission to Ukraine. This proposal was supported by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
The British Prime Minister Cameron, Foreign Minister Philip Hammond, and the head of the State Department’s United States John Kerry Renewed were renewed the discussion about sanctions against Russia. The readiness to do so and the Canadian Prime Minister Harper also declared the determination of new sanctions.
This is about something pleasurable. The people of friendly Georgia support Ukraine. During the soccer game Aktobe (Kazakhstan)-Dinamo (Georgia) the Georgian fans at the stadium performed the hit of this summer, “Putin-Huylo. La-La-La-La”. Thanks to the Georgian friends for moral support!
