Brothers and sisters!
Here’s the Summary for May 29, 2014 (for the previous summary, please see Summary for May 28).
The bad news:
1. The ATO Mi-8 helicopter was shot down near Sloviansk. Six soldiers of the National Guard and six soldiers of [former] “Berkut” special ops team were killed. Later, a convoy of ATO forces was under fire in Kharkiv Oblast [region] near Izyum; as a result, one soldier was killed.
A group of terrorists who shot down the helicopter was immediately destroyed. Terrorist-killers who attacked the convoy have escaped.
I believe that every jerk from terrorist groups in Donbas will answer in full for their crimes. And I believe that very soon the hour will come when Ukrainian land will finally cease to be a territory of death and a territory of revenge.
2. Essentially Russia has officially announced that it supports terrorism.
In particular, Putin’s Press-Secretary D. Peskov gave the following response to the question whether Moscow provided assistance to the “DPR” [Donetsk People’s Republic] (a reminder that, according to the official definition by the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office, the “DPR” is a terrorist organization), “Humanitarian assistance will definitely be provided to them. I can’t give any comments about the military aid.”
No comment. Official aid to terrorists is so in the spirit of the Kremlin. As for military assistance, by the way, Peskov shouldn’t be shy about it–how [assistance] and how much of it is granted by Russia to the terrorists in Donbas, Ukraine knows perfectly well.
3. During the period from May 9 to May 28, seven children in Donetsk Oblast received wounds of varying severity as a result of armed fighting. This was reported by the Healthcare Department of the Donetsk Regional State Administration.
When children suffer–it’s the height of atrocities that any human can commit. Children’s pain and blood will never be forgiven the terrorists. Neither in this, nor in a better, world.
The good news:
1. The ATO Headquarters put the dot on the “i” about the fighting in Sloviansk.
Today security forces didn’t carry out any operations in this area. The town is blocked, and the constant armed battles in its territory are nothing more than a showdown between the terrorists themselves.
The faster these spiders in a jar gnaw each other, the better. If only residents didn’t have to suffer during it.
2. According to Defense Minister M. Koval today, a number of public officials from the Ministry of Defense [of Ukraine] were suspended from duty for abuse [of power] during Army provisioning. Their cases have been handed over to the Prosecutor’s office.
We can only welcome the Army cleansing process. After all, the military office (alas, not only this one) is infested with corrupt officials.
However it is unclear why, whenever one looks at the Defense Ministry and the General Staff today, they would come across leeches from the teams of [Mykhailo] Yezhel or [Dmytro] Salamatin or [Pavlo] Lebedev. Why the crowds of Yanukovych figures are still hanging around there is unclear.
Especially when it concerns positions related to the distribution of resources and cash flow. Does anyone really think that after Maidan, yesterday’s thieves who plundered the Army for four consecutive years have dramatically rehabilitated themselves? What a strange naiveté.
3. In Donetsk, the terrorists from the so-called “Vostok” [East] Battalion showed up today to the main “cabin” of Donetsk by the name of the Donetsk Oblast City Administration [DOCA]. But the “cabin” was occupied. There were already more nimble kids from the “DPR” accommodating themselves there.
Russian “volunteers” from the “Vostok” battalion, with the typical appearance of people from Caucasia, started arresting kids from the “DPR.” Allegedly for stealing chocolates and beer at the looted supermarket “Metro” and refusing to share.
Now the sweet tooths from “Vostok” are gobbling stolen chocolates in the DOCA. By the way–at the same time, dismantling the barricades around the DOCA, apparently so they won’t interfere with escape when more serious guys arrive at the “cabin.”
