Cassad reports that some idiot in the AFN headquarters has sent an entire column of Novorossiyan tanks to their doom yesterday.

But Ukrainians are white, remember? The world cares about white people!
I didn't knew the world cared about dozens of civilians dying in Donbass every week.

They're white, but they're like second-hand white.

Those are not white people, Sergarr. White people are not primitive enough to support Putler. Those are degenerate mongoloid halfbreed barbarians.

EDIT: According to a Russian military blogger, some military support from the Russian army is "in the most difficult battles, quite likely," according to an AFR commander.

There are different reports popping out that pro russians got hit hard, around 50 killed, 4 tanks and few armored vehicles destroyed (from ukraine sources, but pro russians are also saying they had some big losses today).

Doublepost for new frontline news update.

Here.

I expect the north wind to either be already blowing in the most dangerous places, or start blowing there soon.

It sounds like rebel commanders are getting cocky.

Cassad seems to think that the rebels are attempting to encircle the Army around the towns of "Углегорск" and "Дебальуево," and is making pushes into the north of Luhansk and toward the coastal part of Donetsk, if I interpret that map further down the page correctly. That means that, combined with this...

Meanwhile, in Mariupol:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Col. Cassad claims Ukrainian artillery undershot Novorossiyan positions on the eastern outskirts of Mariupol and accidentially hit a residential area instead, citing his informants in Mariupol. At the time of this post, Ukrainian and pro-Ukrainian sources were mostly silent. The only report I could find is an article by a local Mariupol website claiming that the artillery strike was conducted by Novorossiyan forces. There are conflicting reports on VK regarding the shelling - pro-Ukrainian residents of Mariupol blame Novorossiyan forces, pro-Russian residents blame the Ukrainian forces.
Videos: 1 (the author claims the artillery strike was launched from Ukrainian-controlled town of Stary Krym), 2, 3, 4.

Looks like this time the shell trajectories were steep and it'd be possible to determine the direction where they came from... If only there were more useful photos.

I bet you my left arm to be severed that results will still contradict each other - opposite sides will blame it on enemy, no matter what.

Link in German.
15 dead apparently, and the seperatists are starting a major offensive according to NATO after having been supplied with heavy weaponry. Aaaaand everybody's talking about a land corridor to Crimea.
Knit, what was that about north wind blowing? And - a bit earlier - about the impossibility of Russian troops in Ukraine?

Ukraine shelled Mariupol? That Russian scum dare to say that? I wish a nuke on Moscow. Russian or otherwise. It is not important
