The situation in Donbass is heating up: the Ukrainian Armed Forces used heavy artillery

On February 6, 2020, the situation on the contact line in Donbas sharply escalated. For the first time in the past six months, the Ukrainian military has used heavy artillery against the DPR in the form of D-122 30-mm towed howitzers.

Simultaneously with the shelling, Ukrainian security forces fired at the territory of the DPR from 120-mm mortars. In total, on this day, the servicemen of the Armed Forces used about 40 ammunition with a caliber of 120 mm and above. The blows suffered: Gorlovka, outskirts of Donetsk, n of Leninskoye and N. Staromikhaylovka.

The Ukrainian military also used infantry fighting vehicles and anti-tank grenade launchers. Information about the dead and wounded by the DPR, as well as the destruction and damage caused, is being clarified. This was announced by VGTRK war correspondent Andrei Rudenko from Donetsk, referring to information received in an interview from the deputy commander of the NM DNR, Colonel Eduard Basurin.

We record the arrival of a large number of trains from technique to the railway stations, which are located in the rear of the Ukrainian troops. Armored vehicles, personnel, 122-mm and 152-mm artillery are unloaded there, but the Ukrainian side did not allow the OSCE mission to be checked

- specified Basurin.

The Russian journalist noted that the statements of Ukrainian politicians, recently voiced from Kiev, and the situation on the contact line in general indicate that Ukraine refuses to fulfill the agreements reached earlier in Minsk and deliberately aggravates the situation.

    Why is it not written anywhere that the howitzers are made in the RSFSR, and the Russian Federation, as a direct successor, bears full responsibility ... Russia again showed aggression! It is necessary to impose sanctions on her doorstep in the newspaper and light the newspaper!

    Americans see the Ukrainian economy falling and seriously, although the people humbly endure, but patience is not unlimited. So they decided to arrange fratricide for the last time. Drive the sheep to slaughter in a herd. Our government needs to stop selling gas, oil, electricity to the fascists and put pressure on Belarus to do the same (at the same time we will check what allies they are). We will also announce an ultimatum, in the event of an outbreak of aggression, we will recognize the independence of the LPNR, or even join Russia in general.

    How is it. Leave some oligarch without an extra millionaire of money. It is only in the hated America that there is a law prohibiting trade and any relationship with a hostile state for it (America). And that makes it a power!
    A grew up. oligarchs don't smell money. Well, they killed a couple of tens of thousands of Russians, well, they say that they want to live with Russia, and, what, lose an extra bag of money because of this?

    Why was everyone so worried about it? The leadership constantly tells us that this is an internal conflict of Ukraine, we are not a party to this conflict. We are not at war with Ukraine, diplomatic ties have not been severed. Sanctions with it are mainly in the defense industry, military equipment. And, by the way, I went to Ukrainian channels, there are fresh videos of shelling of their positions ... when you go to the LPR sites, there is only a photo of it is not clear what year ...

    They need to send a dozen "Zoos" ... then you look and the shelling will stop.

    1) Return Donbas to the Russian Federation. 2) To deliver a missile attack on government dachas in Kiev and on the heart of Bandera - Lvov. ..After this, the boredom will lose all desire to shoot at the Donbass.

      In response, several dirty bombs with ZNPP waste will arrive. Directly to Rostov and so on. Is this what you want?

        If the Bandera members want the whole of western Ukraine to turn into Hiroshima, they can throw waste from their nuclear power plants at Rostov. Russia is big, you can move from Rostov, and then we will cut Ukraine to zero.

          Maybe you don't know about all the surprises? And "cut" you will be tortured to swallow the dust. The Armed Forces of Ukraine are several hundred thousand soldiers and officers, including mob reserve and territorial defense. Every house has an arsenal in the closet or in the barn. You seem to have forgotten the columns of Donetsk-Rostov refrigerators in 2014. There was also a figure "2" and two capital letters "O" on board.

            Yes, I will not be tortured. My part of your dill, both in Chechnya and in Ossetia, put cancer on, but in Ukraine we will not stand on ceremony, because you did not stand on ceremony with the Russians. The warheads of the volumetric explosion in the Russian Federation are the best and most powerful in the world, so buy coffins for your fascist imperfections from the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the SBU, I don't need prisoners! ODAB-500P burned all your geeks in the fortifications of the Strategic Missile Forces of the USSR near Bamut, and then any of your cities after that we just spit.

              What if Tomahawks fly at you? Americans take their obligations under the Budapest Memorandum very seriously. The personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is 40% Russian.

                1) I have not heard that Ukraine became a part of the United States, and in the United States there are no bad people to die for you under Russian YARS. Well, they will introduce more sanctions against the Russian Federation, they will introduce them without you, that's all, they will bark and stop.
                2) Before you write about your rights, remember your responsibilities more often. Ukraine has taken upon itself the obligation to be a neutral state, and since Ukraine has turned from a neutral state into a Bandera rubbish, the Russian Federation owes you only 100 kicks in the ass and nothing else.
                3) Having a Russian surname and being Russian are two different things. In the Second Chechenskaya I had a gunner, by the name of Shevchenko, he is Russian and hates you.

                  I hope you're just a retired goat drummer who forgot to send a psycho wagon in time. If such sentiments reign in your general staff, then believe me: a war against Ukraine will mean the unconditional collapse of your state. Even Dzhugashvili could not do anything with the UPA, and Khrushchev was forced to go to the world. But the UPA did not have more resources to resist. And now an unlimited flow of weapons, ammunition, equipment from NATO will go to Ukraine, if you go. Do you really want to drag your country into a war you can never get out of?

                    You shouldn't think so, the goat now commands the remnants of your Bandera fleet, which can only frighten the crows and katrans. Your Ukraine has not won a single war, all your Sich Riflemen, Mazepovites and Banderaites ended their lives in cattle burial grounds, or in flight. Nothing else is shining for your bastard from the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the SBU, and the national traitors with Russian surnames who went to serve your Bandera, we will drag them to Novorossiysk on a rope, like bait for katrans. Now it is not 1941 or 1945, no one will fight with you PPSh. The forests in the Carpathians you yourself have cut almost to zero, but there is enough napalm for those bushes that you have left in the Russian Federation ... Yeah, decommissioned Hummers, for example ... the main thing is not to die of laughter looking at your troughs

                        In 2014, one of your Romanians, from near Odessa, on the website, wrote to me that the Russian Federation would be gone by the spring of 2014. He promised to bring me cigarettes to the prisoner of war camp, in which the Russian army would sit. It would be fun to talk to him today, if he has not yet been shot in the Donbass ...

    But this is not necessary. There is a lot of noise, but little benefit.
