Operational data from Information Resistance:
As a result of military operations on the Debaltseve springboard, Russian-terrorist troops incurred heavy losses, including temporary casualties. All medical facilities are overflowing in Krasnyi Luch and Antratsyt, where wounded terrorists are being delivered. In Snizhne, where the majority of heavily wounded insurgents have been transported, we observe a lack of medication and an acute shortage of medical equipment and supplies (syringes are being ‘expropriated’ from veterinary hospitals). In Donetsk, morgues have stopped taking in civilians due to lack of room.
Near Popasna, the enemy attempted to continue the offensive and attacked one of the Ukrainian checkpoints using several armored vehicles (including 6 AFVs and 2 tanks). The attack was repelled; insurgent losses included one BMP-2 [armored personnel carrier] and one motor vehicle. The enemy fell back to their original lines.
An armored group of Russian-terrorist troops (up to 10 tanks, 18 APCs and AFVs, several MT-12 anti-tank guns and 120-mm mortars, as well as up to 10 trucks) was reported arriving in Donetsk (near Kyivsky Avenue). The personnel of the group are Russian military servicemen of non-Slavic appearance. Forced ‘evacuation’ of civilians had taken place in this area earlier. We already have reports of marauding acts committed by the newly-arrived Russian military servicemen.
A terrorist artillery group is stationed south of Alchevsk to fire at the Chornukhyno sector. The group includes 26 pieces of cannon artillery and 8 MRLS units.
In Avdiivka, the town market was hit by terrorist shelling, and several fires broke out. Several municipal structures were also damaged.
The enemy continues delivering reinforcements through Alchevsk. Over the last 24 hours, we observed the arrival of approximately 25 units of equipment (of which 15 are armored vehicles). The equipment is being prepared for deployment to the area of Pervomaisk and Krasnyi Pakhar.
Ukrainian artillery delivered a strike on the positions of Russian-terrorist troops near Bryanka and Stakhanov, shelling a number of the enemy’s military objects, including a command point. The enemy left a number of positions around Bryanka.
A command point of Russian-terrorist troops near the village of Metalist [Luhansk oblast] was also destroyed by a firing strike delivered by Ukrainian artillery on the insurgent base camp. Earlier, the IR group reported about the creation of this command point, intended to coordinate the actions of gangs operating near Shchastya and Stanytsia Luhanska.
In Rovenky, attempts by the ‘LNR government’ to carry out ‘mobilization measures’ resulted in the pronounced discontent of the locals. The leaders of the local terrorist ‘commandant’s office’ are threatening execution by firing squad to persons refusing to be ‘mobilized.’
In the area of Stanytsia Luhanska, insurgents attempted a ‘PSYOP attack’ by broadcasting the USSR anthem through powerful speakers turned in the direction of the Ukrainian positions.
