DPR army suffered significant losses

The situation on the demarcation line in the Donbass remains difficult. Every day, there are reports of shelling by Ukrainian security forces of the territories of the self-proclaimed republics of Donbass (DPR and LPR) and the end of the civil war in Ukraine is not yet visible.

During the period from February 8 to February 14, 2019, 7 DPR servicemen were killed, another 4 were injured of varying severity. At the same time, since the beginning of 2019, 15 DPR servicemen have already died and 11 were injured. These are stingy lines of official statistics from the DPR Ombudsman, and this is someone's life. And this is only in the DPR.

For example, during the indicated time, the Ukrainian security forces fired 82 and 120 mm mortars from the villages of Leninskoye and Sakhanka, firing more than a hundred mines at them. What strategic meaning was in this is not clear.

In addition, on the night of February 15-16, 2019, Gorlovka was subjected to mortar shelling. This is a large city, forty kilometers north of Donetsk, in which more than 250 thousand people lived recently.

It should be noted that near the DPR there is the LPR and the situation there is no better. From there, they regularly report on shelling by Ukrainian security forces of settlements located on the territory of the republic.

For example, only on February 15, 2019, Ukrainian security forces fired on the territory of the LPR 9 times, the press service of the LPR People’s Police reported. The most popular among Ukrainian siloviki are mortars of 82 mm and 120 mm caliber. This time, the LNR army’s positions were fired at in the area of ​​the settlements of Zolotoe-5, Kalinovo, Molodezhnoye, Kalinovka.

    There is no DNR army; there are DNR separatists. I wonder how they would be called if this happened in some of our area? The most affectionate would probably be terrorists. Soloviev would not be stingy with epithets.

      Yeah. As Chechen bandits were called rebels abroad.

        There is still a difference. In the Donbass, no one conducts ethnic cleansing.

      Well, why? According to the Western terminology you love so much, these are rebels. And fighters for independence.

    This situation, when someone kills someone, cannot continue. It is clear that each side will pull the blanket over itself, which means that each has its own truth. I believe that the republics have proved their loyalty with blood, and Russia should open its doors to them. It's time for us to say: "Welcome Donbass!"

    The Kremlin’s line of continuing betrayal is yielding results.
