Brothers and sisters!

Here’s the Summary for July 11, 2014 (for previous summary, please see Summary for July 10).

The bad news:

1. Today is another black day [in the history of Ukraine]. For the past 24 hours, 23 servicemen died, and 93 more were wounded. Most of them as a result of terrorists shelling the positions of ATO forces with MLRS “Grad.” 

Guys, you will be avenged. No matter how hard Putin’s dogs of war are trying to bite in agony, they will fully pay for every drop of your blood. I’m convinced that neither Donbas nor Ukraine as a whole will ever forget the heavy price that paid our way to victory…

2. The terrorists have been shelling our positions for the second time in three days from the state border with Russia. This is obviously to provoke retaliatory fire from our [servicemen] to hit back at Russian territory. 

In two weeks, we recorded three instances where the insurgents themselves clearly and intentionally fired with mortars onto Russian territory.

Apparently, in this way the terrorists seek to force Putin to bring “Russian peacekeepers” to Donbas. Although it is possible that this is only part of the overall plan concocted by the Russian FSB. In any case, for us there is nothing good [to be found] in these provocations.
