Around Fifty Soldiers Wounded in Sloviansk Battles In Kyiv’s Military Hospital 

384005344.jpg

According to ATO participants, it would have been possible to avoid numerous casualties when conducting the anti-terrorist operations.  However, an inside source is continuously releasing information to separatists.

In the capital’s military hospital [in Kyiv] there are currently close to fifty soldiers who were wounded in battles that took place in Slovyansk; and close to thirty more are in hospital in the town of Irpen. Almost all of the soldiers ended up in a hospital after a large-scale operation near Slovyansk, at the beginning of June. At that time soldiers were not even able to enter the city – they were fired on as they approached.

Major Oleksandr Maliarchuk was taking part in the Operation, on 3 June, when his leg was injured by a BTR (armored personnel carrier). He states that separatists were well aware of the plans of Ukrainian forces: “There are many traitors among Ministry of Defence officials, who sell information – causing a leak,” says Maliarchuk.

An anti-tank missile hit the BTR as it was was being driven by a Ukrainian soldier. Only he and one comrade survived. The Major says that on that day they had survived two ambushes. They were unable to make it through a third one, but were expecting aid: “We were waiting for assistance from the air force. But it seemed that they were busy with something else, and so we were stopped and the enemy had started firing anti-tank missiles at us.”

The soldiers are rushing the doctors as much as possible, as they want to get back to battle.  They say that all the soldiers are dreaming of the day when the ATO will finally be victorious; when the order to start eliminating the remaining separatist forces in Slovyansk will be given.  These fighters believe that they need to be given “just one order, and everything can be taken care of in just two days.”

donbasOn 23 May 2014 a battle took place near Karlovka between the pro-Ukrainian patriotic volunteer Defense force “Donbas” and the terrorist battalion “Vostok”. The Donbas battalion has given its account on the course of events on their facebook page.

Early in the morning a platoon of 25 persons of the civilian volunteer Defense Force “Donbas”, of whom 80% are residents of the Donetsk Oblast, moving by several cars and minibuses, ran into an ambush of terrorists from the so-called “battalion “Vostok [‘East’ in Russian]”, numbering 100 persons. The Donbas battalion was armed with small arms, hand grenades, 1 sniper rifle, while the Vostok battalion was armed with sufficiently heavier weaponry: small arms, heavy weapons (large-caliber machine guns and grenade launchers), three APCs, and had a group of several snipers. As per the Donbas battalion, 80% of the terrorists from “battalion Vostok” do not live in the region, being Chechen terrorists, fighters of the former Crimean “Alpha” [special unit of Security Service], fighters of the former Crimean “Berkut” [a special police force known for its violent actions against Euromaidan protesters], while 20% are civilian fighters from the self-proclaimed terrorist republic “Donetsk People’s Republic” (DPR).

As soon as it became obvious that Defense force “Donbas” is capable of mopping-up terrorists from next and next districts of the Donetsk region, an unaccountable event happened. Actually, there is an explanation. “Donbas” has been betrayed and information about its movement route became know to the terrorists. “Donbas” ran into an ambush near village Karlovka and accepted battle. Snipers, submachine gunners were engaged against “Donbas” and bazookas were being used. There are wounded (the amount is being verified). There are 2 persons in the hospital of one of the nearby towns, 2 persons were moved from the block-post to the hospital. One of them is in the surgery operating theatre and the other one is in traumatic surgery. Guards were left near the hospital with the wounded. The other wounded are waiting for evacuation.  Continue reading
