Anyway, news from the front.

Cassad-pasha Al Novorossiya reports that Ukraine has started sending in its reserves, the conflict has intensified even further and depending on the situation, we might actually see some "North Wind blowing" - actual Russian army actually fighting.

EDIT: McCain has announced that Ukraine will start getting actual arms soon. Two possible predictions: if Ukraine has already been covertly getting arms from the USA, then nothing serious will happen, if not, then Ukraine is screwed.

Why would Ukraine be screwed? Finally this can turn into what it should've turned into months ago: A repeat of the first Afghanistan war.

I'm going to do the smart thing here and disengage. This isn't a hill I paticularly care to die on.

There is a distinct lack of mountains to hide in, though...

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

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...

Even if you found a suitable opening, I doubt it would prove all too satisfying. And it might leave some nasty wounds, depending on the moral high ground's geology.
