The war correspondent of the press service of the DPR Armed Forces visited the advanced positions near Yasnoye, and learned how the situation changed after the fire in the Ukrainian ammunition warehouse in Kalinovka.
“We are at the positions of the Donetsk People’s Republic, which, as was said, was occupied by activists of Right Sector, Azov, and Aidar nationalist battalions. This is our position, nobody encircled us, everything is as it should be here.
Concerning the war, at their side in the Vinnytsia recently warehouses exploded and immediately shelling on us became more frequent, they started to use tanks, 120mm mortars, barrelled artillery, they attacked with shrapnel. There was shelling from D-30 two days ago, they worked with shrapnel, a shell exploded in the air and shrapnel killed a civilian in a district of the settlement Yasnoye.
It is possible to communicate with civilians, they will describe how the UAF attack them with the crosshair over their houses. Also sniper attacks became more frequent, they work with long-range rifles. Sniper firing begins under the cover of machine-gun fire.
They shoot at the city, they don’t mind that children go to school. The largest shelling begins from 18:30 until 01:00, they work from BMP-1, BMP-2, automatic grenade launchers, and small arms.
The aggravation of the situation is connected with the fact that war is favorable for Poroshenko: because of this he is enriched, Firtash has his own interests there, as well as Kolomoisky. It is profitable for them that there is intensive shelling, they earn money on it due to the sponsorship of America and Europe.
Behind me there is a position at a distance of 700 meters, you can see their towers, these arms are forbidden by the Minsk Agreements and should be in their places of permanent storage. If the command is given – we will burn their little tanks.”
