“The enemy will be irreversibly subdued” – Basurin

The Ukrainian Armed Forces are preparing a ‘blitzkrieg’ to seize the territories of the Donbass between March and June – as announced today by the operational command of DPR, Eduard Basurin, referring to intelligence data.
“The plan provides for military units with the support of artillery to overcome the security zone and break through the first defensive line within DPR and LPR, to take control of advantageous positions.” – he noted.
Kiev will inflict the main damage to the north and south of Donetsk.
“Strikes will be coordinated in the direction of Verkhnetortsekoye, Ilovaysk and towards Maximov, Starobeshevo, Ilovaysk. They will try to overcome the line of combat and break through the first defensive position. Then, having increased their power with the introduction of reserves, they will attempt to cut into Donetsk divisions, to encircle and seize Donetsk.” – said Basurin.
The ultimate goal is to reach Novoazovsk and seize the coast of the Azov Sea.
The invasion of the LPR is planned from the direction of Lutugino. According to Basurin, the data from aerial reconnaissance, equipment at the front line, as well as the active replenishment of fuel and ammunition supplies also testifies to Kiev’s plans.
“I note that the blitzkrieg will not bring the expected result to the Ukrainian side, and in case of armed aggression against the People’s Republics, the enemy will be irreversibly subdued.” – Busurin summed it up.

Donetsk SitRep: DPR under heavy artillery fire – 24.2

DONi Press

February 24, 2016

‘The situation on the contact line remains tense’, said Vice-Commander of Donetsk Army Eduard Basurin on Wednesday. ‘In the shellings the enemy used heavy 122mm and 152mm artillery’, Basurin said.

The Ukrainian military violated the ceasefire thirty-three times and shelled the territory of the Republic a hundred and forty-eight times. In the shellings the enemy used 122mm and 152mm artillery three times, 120mm mortars twenty times, 82mm mortars a hundred and four times, as well as infantry fighting vehicles, grenade launchers and small arms.

The Ukrainian punitors fired from the localities of Pesky, Nevelskoye, Zhovanka and Opytnoye at the localities of Zaytsevo, Zhabichevo, Staromikhaylovka, the area of the airport, the Volvo Centre, the Kuybyshevsky and Petrovsky districts of the city of Donetsk. The shellings were carried out from the positions of the 14th and 93rd separate mechanised brigades under command of Zhakun and Klochkov.

The intelligence of the DPR Armed Forces keeps registering the concentration of the enemy’s weapons and military equipment near the contact line:

– In Krasnogorovka (3 km away from the contact line) there was registered the arrival of four 120mm motorised artillery systems “Nona-C”;
– In Dzerzhinsk (2 km away from the contact line) the was registered the transportation of four tanks;
– In Vesyolaya Dolina (12 km away from the contact line) there was registered the arrival of eleven infantry fighting vehicles.

Besides, according to the OSCE mission’s report, in the sites of the Ukrainian weapons and equipment storage the observers documented the absence of ten tanks.

The Ukrainian military and political authorities continue to carry out activities on the preparation for the offensive, which is indicated by the facts of transporting artillery and equipment to the contact line. Zhakun and Klochkov continue to compete on who will become a bloody hero of Ukraine, shelling civilians and residential areas. We can state as a fact that in the Kuibyshev district of Donetsk two civilians were wounded in the shellings. That’s how the “defenders of the Motherland” betray their moral foundations, maiming civilians.

Kiev has amassed 238 tanks, 101 ceasefire violations over the past week — Basurin (Video)

From Fort Russ

7th December, 2015

With Joe Biden and Victoria Nuland visiting Ukraine this week, it would seem they have brought some gifts with them – death and destruction. Towns such as Gorlovka are a 24/7 hot spot of action, with Pisky, Spartak and the New airport Terminal also receiving a daily barrage. The concern is that the UAF has regrouped since the Minsk II ceasefire agreement and has many new recruits and new toys from Washington. The map below shows how the UAF are approaching the contact line:

Fighting occurred between regular units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces yesterday in Avdeyevka, in the Donetsk oblast. This was reported by the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) Ministry of Defense Corps, Deputy Commander Edward Basurin.

“We have documented evidence of an exacerbation of confrontation not only between the regular army and the Ukrainian Volunteer Battalions, but also skirmishes between units of the UAF,” explained Basurin.

The Deputy Commander said this before reports that the 93rd mechanized brigade of the UAF required the rogue volunteer battalion ‘OUN’ (Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists) to leave their positions near Peski.

“And today, April 11, in Avdeyevka there has been fighting between regular units,” said Basurin.

“Please note that these facts of Ukrainian units firing at each other, are presented to the Ukrainian authorities as a violation of the ceasefire by the DNR militia, as regularly reported in the OSCE and Ukraine controlled media,” – said the representative of the military department DNR .

Recall that on April 1st, the DNR Defense Ministry reported that the Ukrainian battalion “Donbass” opened fire on positions of the “Right Sector.” According to representatives of the militia units who do not want to obey the command of the UAF, “We reserve the right not to respect the ceasefire.”

The leadership of the armed forces of Ukraine had decided, at the end of the day, to take the Volunteer Battalion ‘OUN’ from the line of contact (ceasefire line) in Peski.

“By staying on the front line, the Volunteer Battalion of the OUN, which is not officially part of the armed forces, did not allow Ukraine to fully implement the Minsk agreement”- said in a statement posted on the UAF website.

The ceasefire officially came into effect in Donbass on February 14, 2015 at 01:00 in Donetsk. The DNR has repeatedly stated that compliance with the truce depends entirely on the Ukrainian side.
