VSN Confident That Mariupol Will Fall in the Next Few Days

______________________________

The VSN is confident that the port of Mariupol will fall in the next few days. Repeatedly, the DNR leadership staked its claim to Mariupol, and now its sending troops there again. In the last 24 hours, clashes intensified near the city…. a key port and railway junction, a major motorway crossing point, along with being a major industrial centre. Last year, during the counteroffensive, the VSN didn’t capture the city more for political and not military reasons… the advance to Mariupol halted because of orders from the political leadership, not due to the resistance offered by the so-called “National Guard”. The authorities ordered a halt, despite the fact that control of Mariupol virtually opens a direct route to the Crimea… the only major town between Mariupol and the Crimea, Berdyansk, lacks any significant geographical advantage for a defender.

During the “truce”, the junta hardened the approaches to Mariupol, digging trenches and building fortifications, mobilising the local population for labour… besides that, they sowed the fields with mines. The most-fortified area was Taganrog Street… they placed the densest installation of tank traps there, as it appeared to be the most logical axis of advance. However, now, the VSN pressures the coastal route, bypassing the roads near Taganrog Street, advancing in the open country, from the northeast. The key point there is the small village of Sartana, linked to the city by Zaozernaya Street. It’s in open steppe, which is very difficult to both attack and defend.

According to the website 0629.com.ua, clashes occurred on battle lines to the east and northeast of Mariupol. As the junta deployed the so-called Volunteer Battalion “Dnepr-1” to defend the city, the VSN fired at junta positions in Telmanovsky Raion near Sartana, next to the city, to the northeast. There is less junta artillery emplaced in Mariupol than there is near Donetsk, therefore, the VSN will be able to deploy reserves relatively freely for an offensive in-depth on a frontal arc from Granitnogo to Sartana.

Another thing about the VSN assault is that its watchword is “Mariupol, we haven’t forgetten you, we’ll be back soon”. Therefore, the VSN will be sparing in its use of artillery, to avoid civilian casualties. After all, a direct assault on fortified positions, which the junta army and the “National Guard” constructed as best they could, would be costly (not to mention the fact that the VSN doesn’t want to destroy the industry, the infrastructure, the railways, or the port). The most sensible option is to defeat the junta forces on an axis of advance on the open ground near Sartana, and not get involved in a frontal assault on Mariupol. Accordingly, these limitations in both tactics and means encourage the VSN to search for an “unconventional stroke”, if it wishes to take the city in the near future.

VSN Captured O M Mikats, Commander of 93 Zhitomir Brigade

00 Oleg Mikats. DNR. Ukrainian Army prisoner. 21.01.15.jpg-large

_______________________________

We captured Ukrainian bandits who tried to break into the airport (you thought it was your airport… so, you sent reinforcements). This was yet another defeat that Poroshenko’s advisor Biryukov tried to explain away (you wanker, you Russian whore!). That sorry-ass counsellor didn’t know or didn’t tell anyone the fact that one of the captured was O M Mikats, Commander of the 93 Brigade, who took part in the famous meeting between Motorola and Kupola. I’m certain that all those named, that “assorted dozen”, those whom Biryukov wrote about, those brigade commanders, didn’t lead the assault (brigades in the field usually have less than 3,000 troops). On the other hand, was he unclear? In that case, what advice did he give Poroshenko? What kind of brigade commander was he, who led his troops straight into captivity!?

This was a real disaster… we captured one of their best brigade commanders, who led one of the most reliable units.  They touted him as the personification of the Right Sector. In fact, everything is much simpler and sadder for the bandits… he charged into the attack with tanks, really. He tried again… he failed. He failed miserably… we nicked this brigade commander… who led one of the 11 brigades available to the enemy. Before, he personally led his men… now, the morale of the brigade sucks… not one platoon, company, or battalion commander can lead their men.

Givi took this Ukrainian Nazi and looked into the eyes of the bandit commander; he asked him a few momentous questions. Motorola just asked him about those who died… “Why did you lead your people to the slaughter!?”.

Reference:

Oleg Mikhailovich Mikats (born, 23 October 1975, Novograd-Volynsky (Zhitomir Oblast. Ukrainian SSR) USSR) Ukrainian punisher, Colonel of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Commander 93 Mechanised Brigade. Took part in the war in the Donbass. Infamous leader of the attack on Donetsk Airport.

Peski and Donetsk Airport Now Under Complete Patriot Control

00 Eastern Front. Donbass People's Opolchenie. 24.05.14

______________________________

DNR Deputy Minister of Defence Eduard Basurin reported on the operational situation at the front, “Now, Peski and the Donetsk International Airport are under complete control of the VSN. In Gorlovka, we heard gunfire from Dzerzhinsk. We took seven Ukrainian prisoners, including two officers, a lieutenant colonel and a lieutenant. We captured them at the airport as they attempted to attack our positions. Today, the Ukrainian side lost more than 120 dead. In terms of matériel, they lost 5 BMP MICVs, 6 tanks, and a APC. The Ukrainian government now throws recently conscripted untrained levies into the frontline. We successfully beat off all attacks by junta forces without losses”.
