Photo summary of the week. Mariupol. [We travelled] up along the river Kalmius–the right bank is ours… Kurakhove. Mariinka. Krasnohorivka. Sloviansk. Artemivsk. Debaltseve… It’s cold. Strong wind. Rain. It’s best to sit at home, watch TV, and sip tea in this weather. And they are at checkpoints, in the fields, in the swamps… There isn’t enough to keep warm. There are hardly any [solid fuel-burning] stoves. Or wood… [Soldiers] at positions badly need polyethylene film in rolls, tons of insulation; they need boards, nails, gas-powered saws… [We] are looking for water heaters, mobile baths, winter tires for cars, fresh accumulators, and many other seasonal things… As of now, these things are nonexistent–the army is not ready for winter.

[We] handed three small drones over to the troops: experienced scouts from the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and the guys from the “Dnipro-1” Battalion. Conducted [the drone] training for operators. Delivered (with training) navigation tablets with ballistic programs to artillery gunners, missilemen, and scouts… I won’t include the bales of winter “humanitarian aid” into this report… Army SOS works at the frontlines.
