Dmitry Tymchuk’s Military Blog: Summary – July 28, 2014

Brothers and sisters!

Here’s the Summary for July 28, 2014 (for previous summary, please see Summary for July 25).

The bad news:

1. Nevertheless, “Putin’s distemper” is a very cruel thing. And it seems that the Head of the Russian Foreign Ministry Sergei Lavrov is somewhere at its penultimate stage.

It is difficult to say whether he still recognizes his wife or if he can defecate by himself, but he is absolutely sure that what is happening in Ukraine is directed against Russia. In particular, Lavrov claimed today that the Maidan that took place in Ukraine is a “geopolitical project against Russia.”

I understand that all the free-from-lying time Mr. Lavrov has, he spends shaking up cupboards and peeking under sofas looking for Banderites and CIA agents.

I think it is no longer possible to help him. It remains only to warn diplomats from other countries that they should be more careful with Lavrov at any international get-togethers. Fuck knows how this infection spreads.

2. Today, Aidar Battalion reported: for the past 24 hours, the battalion has incurred serious losses. Four of our border control guards died yesterday as a result of the artillery shelling from the Russian territory. Ukrainian Armed Forces soldiers and the National Guard keep dying.

These guys have fulfilled their duty to the very end. The freed land of Donbas must always remember this blood shed by patriots. Eternal memory to the heroes.

3. Russia continues to build up the number of its troops near the state border with Ukraine.

In addition to the units previously concentrated at the border, [new] units from other regions of Russia are currently being deployed. Earlier, the movement of the divisions of the 32nd Motorized Rifle Brigade and the 24th Separate Brigade of the GRU of the General Staff were recorded from Novosibirsk Oblast [region].

This weekend, we documented the redeployment of units from the Russian 200th Motorized Rifle Brigade [MRB] to the state border with Ukraine. It looked strange, given that the Brigade’s permanent place of deployment is in the Murmansk Oblast [region] of Russia [in the northwest]. Today, however, these data have been confirmed.

The 200th MRB has tanks, BM-21 “Grad” and BM-27 “Hurricane” MLRS, 2SZ “Acacia” self-propelled artillery at its disposal. That is everything that Putin’s troops have unleashed on Ukraine in recent weeks.

The good news:
