The Sergei Prokofiev International Airport-UKCC #Donetsk

The Sergei Prokofiev Airport in Donetsk (10 km 6.2 miles NW) UKCC originally built in the 1940s and 50s was constructed to withstand a nuclear detonation. Aside from the familiar surface features typical of a modern airport,

having been upgraded in the seventies and fully renovated at a cost of 470 million dollars (US) in time for the Euro 2012 venue, there remains the vast fortified underground.  Little is known of the extent of these unseen fortifications,  however it can be assumed that they were engineered to be fully self contained with secure underground communications network. How long a force can remain embedded in these blast proof bunkers depends on a number of factors one of which is supply and provisions. Minus a set of blueprints it is conjecture as to whether there is an underground resupply network in operation. The KJ forces appear to have a vast amount of rockets and artillery and mortar fire which the KJ  rain down upon the civilian inhabitants of Donetsk central and surrounding communities in what appears to be random and indiscriminate attacks? On 1 October 2014 which marked the first day back to school one such attack killed 11 people with rocket attacks on school 57 and an adjacent bus stop.#57-OCT. 01-VIDEO
A teacher and one parent were counted among the dead.

  Clearly this type of warfare is a cowardly and terrorist approach to inflict psychological harm and genocidal in nature. While hiding behind the skirts of the US state department and its’ surrogates, complete with a mainstream media which fails to report the crimes of the junta (instead opting to blame Russia or the citizens/Militia themselves for the deaths and atrocities) the KJ is gambling on a long shot.
Those in power today will be gone soon and the political will to support a fascist regime in Ukraine will be gone with them.  There are no statue of limitations on war crimes, genocide and murder and an international tribunal will serve the justice that surely will come.

Three answers to one naive question: “Why can not the militia take Donetsk airport?”
POSTED
06/10/2014 – 1:48

In a situation versed correspondent “KP” Dmitry Steshin [Infographic]
1 Geographical location

As the correspondent of “KP” commanders scouts Department of Defense DNI, the airport occupies an extremely advantageous geographical location. It is located on a flat plateau, which hangs over the Donetsk and the surrounding countryside. Due to this the nearest point where may come militia – the so-called Putilovskaya isolation – is 1.5 kilometers from the airport terminals. We checked with the scouts on this outcome, using quadrocopter to videotape the airport, and ten minutes later were seen snipers fired and covered with a volley of mortars. Automatic grenade hit of the terminals, and mortars – a territory / h A-1428 156-second anti-missile defense regiment of Ukraine. This part is adjacent to the runway and literally crammed with caponiers, bunkers, tunnels and shelters, including Fallout. Located on the territory of the artillery, which in recent months shelled Donetsk and suppressed the activity of all the militia in the vicinity of the airport. Just artillery provided “supply corridor” group sitting at the airport – to cut the supply of militia could not. Checkpoints, which were exhibited at night, in the morning destroyed artillery fire. And means to suppress artillery counter-battery fire from the militia, too, failed. In the USSR, military facilities and were able to build a concrete spare
2 Surprises

It is still unclear exactly what the underground facilities are located at the airport – in open sources of data has never been. According to DNR command, the total length of underground utilities under the airport – at least 64 kilometers. Tunnels connect military unit A-1402 on the street Stratonavtov old airport terminal and a part of the air defense in Avdeyevka. In addition, under the runway airfield laid stormwater tunnels – up to 2 meters in diameter. Another unpleasant surprise for the upcoming traffic control tower was associated with underground communications terminals. The tower was carried out to adjust fire batteries in villages Avdiyivka, Experimental, Sands. So the first thing we did militia during the final assault on the airport – to suppress any activity at the site. Tower shot a few days, and only after that was able to take objects adjacent to the airport and go to the terminals themselves – Ukrainian gunners just “blinded.”
3 The threat from the sky and politics

First time trying to take the airport back in April, at ease, with the help of an unarmed insurgent people, through negotiations. The next day, the negotiators were arrested on the streets of Donetsk SBU. The second assault on May 26 was bloody. Militia lost 40 fighters. In military science, the more assaults reflected object, the harder it is to take afterwards. Slavyansk confirmed this axiom. Few months the airport was no use – enough worries on other fronts. The command of the militia claimed that he has no strategic value – Vzletka broken artillery defending locked in terminals and have no strength to storm the city. But the airport still had to deal with – for political reasons. In mid-September, the Tripartite Liaison Group signed a memorandum on the implementation of the protocol in Minsk. Among the items stipulated document, there is a condition – removal of heavy artillery at a distance of not less than 15 km on each side. Ie Ukrainian troops have inevitably have to leave the cozy caponiers and bunkers in a military unit in Avdeyevka. And shelling residential areas of Donetsk finally cease.

Report from Donbass War Theater. Kiev Switches To “Strategic Defense” by Colonel Cassad LiveJournal

Report from Donbass War Theater. Kiev Switches To “Strategic Defense”
by Colonel Cassad LiveJournal (Russian) POSTED

The events of recent days clearly indicate that the Kiev Junta is switching to strategic defense tactic in the Donbass.
1. The positions around Mariupol, Artemovsk, Constantinovka, and Lisichansk are being fortified.

image

This is no longer about using these cities as bases for an offensive, we are talking about trying to hold them in defensive battles. The Militia should accomplish putting an end to the shelling of Donetsk in about a week. The Junta will try to keep shelling for political reasons; as the cessation of terror attacks on Donetsk would be a clear symptom of a complete disaster, even for the most brainwashed “European Ukrainians”
2. Leaving more than 20 settlements in Lugansk People’s Republic(“LPR”) with open flanks shows that attempts encircle the city are over. Junta forces that can be saved, will be pulled out of the boiler to the south-west of Luhansk, then the front will slowly move away to the north of Lugansk, because in its current configuration, Junta is risking enveloping strikes by Novorossiya Armed Forces (“NAF”) mechanized units. A huge column of armored vehicles in Krasnodon demonstrates the potential power of such attacks, against which the Junta simply has nothing.

image

3. The Junta is moving troops from Perekop to Mariupol and Odessa. We can now say goodbye to the plans of military provocations by Armyansk and Chongar. The huge losses of the “Crimea” punitive battalion by Ilovaysk have also seriously weakened the potential future reconnaissance and sabotage capacities in Crimea proper. The Junta initially made a fundamental error when it began massing a part of its forces by Perekop. They were not sufficient to capture Crimea, or to fend off a Russian invasion from the Crimea, and it is quite possible that several battalions with reinforcements were exactly what the Junta lacked in the decisive battles for Shahtersk and Krasnyi Luch. In the end, they still had to be redeployed to the Donbass, but only after they could no longer change anything, strategically. The Crimea itself has now been completely taken out of the equation; the Junta now has too much to deal with elsewhere, so the ambitious plans of military and political pressure on the Crimea are apparently dead for now.
4. A similar pattern of events has occurred in the area near Transnistria. The forces that the Junta had concentrated there have now been redeployed to Donbass to close holes in the front lines. The plan of combined pressure against Transnistria, together with the United States and Moldova, turned out to be stillborn. Now there are no chances for a successful offensive there, so nothing serious will be deployed against Transnistria.
5. The Junta’s fourth wave of mobilization is supposed to somehow make up for their losses, but its “success” will be similar to the third wave. The fact that the fresh cannon fodder are being equipped with obsolete BTR-60/70 APCs (Armoured Personnel Carriers) and machine guns from the 1930s clearly indicates that those unfit for service will also be armed with obsolete weapons, so ground down professional army brigades will be replaced with the new “Ukrainian Volkssturm” – pointless and depressing, and even the punitive battalions will appear capable in comparison to these new forces.
6. The Junta persists in the separation of army units from punitive forces. Punitive units are now even given tanks and IFVs, thus repeating the failed experiment of the Nazis, separating individual units of the SS from the rest of the armed forces, with their own hierarchy, equipment and command. The main problem in these units is lack of competent commanders, which systematically results in high losses of personnel and vehicles.
7. Thus, the autumn starts with the Junta in transition from offence to defense, and there are clearly not enough resources to hold the entire line; even after the front is straightened out. It should be understood that even if the Junta could stretch a solid front line from Donetsk to Berdyansk, there would be nothing available to close a gap in the event of another breakthrough. In general, the size of the theater of operations clearly exceeds the abilities of the warring parties. The Junta is facing the same problem faced by the NAF in June, when it was trying to hold large areas without sufficient forces to do so, which led to breaks in the front. Now the Junta is in the same situation, thus emphasizing that operational initiative is the key to victory, in the event one lacks sufficient forces to control large swathes of territory. The side which has the operational initiative can choose the direction of attack, concentrate forces there, achieve local superiority, and convert these efforts to captured towns and cities; and burning enemy vehicles with charred corpses lying along the roads.
8. As the Junta cannot seize the initiative back yet (the concentration of 1-2 brigades by Zaporozhye, to be used for counter-attack, requires a few more days), it began a retreat, during which it tried to free up additional forces for the southern front and transition to a stubborn defense of advantageous positions. It is now key for the NAF to keep the operational initiative, as it more than offsets the advantages of the enemy in manpower and vehicles. In this respect, while carrying out offensives in several directions, it is important not to overdo it and not to expose the flanks to cleaving strikes of Junta’s mechanized forces (the NAF still had trouble parrying these strikes as late as August).
Overall, as of September 3rd, we can confidently say that the fascist Junta has switched to strategic defense in the Donbass.

#EU Military Supply Ban To Kiev Lifted #Complicity

Without military supply ban, EU responsible for bloodshed in Ukraine – Russia ForMin
POSTED

image

MOSCOW, August 2 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s Foreign Ministry on Saturday accused the European Union of withdrawing a ban on supplying Ukraine with military technology and equipment “on the quiet.”

“During a recent meeting of the Council of Europe in Brussels, leaders of EU member states agreed ‘on the quiet’ to remove restrictions on exports to Kiev of equipment that could be used for internal repression,” the ministry said in a statement. “Exports of military technologies and equipment were also allowed.”

The ministry also called on the 28-nation EU not to be “goaded” by Washington over events in east Ukraine, where Ukrainian government forces are continuing a military operation.

The European Union’s decision to lift restrictions on exports of military equipment to Ukraine reflects double standards, the ministry said.

The restrictions were imposed by the EU Council on February 20 when Viktor Yanukovich was in power as president, and a tough confrontation continued between armed radical nationalists and factually unarmed police at Maidan in Kiev.
At the time, the European Union
believed it was not right to supply arms and military equipment for Yanukovich’s regime.

Now, despite current Kiev authorities’ military operation in the southeast of the country, the EU has decided to allow export of military equipment in full to Ukraine,

the ministry said.

It is clear why the EU keeps silent over irrefutable facts of shelling of Russia’s territory from Ukraine
“Prospects to feel own involvement in such actions perhaps creates some discomfort in Brussels.”

The decision does not only show double standards, but it is contrary to the EU rules of control over export of military technologies and equipment.
The rules were approved by the EU Council on December 8, 2008 and defined standards and a code of behavior as minimal requirements to regulate supply of military products. Point Three of the rules calls for giving no license for export of a military technology and equipment that can provoke or prolong an armed conflict or aggravate tension or a conflict in the country where it is used. Point Two stipulates that supplied arms must not be used for repressions in the country.

It is obvious that to achieve doubtful political goals, Brussels is ready not only to ignore how Kiev fulfils its international obligations, but also violate regulations of its own documents, the ministry said.
The Russian Foreign Ministry urged EU colleagues to follow sound logic, but not considerations of the situation and not to be “goaded” by Washington.
“A decision to ban supply of arms and special equipment to Ukraine was needed after the beginning of the “antiterrorist” operation in Donbass and the Lugansk regions. But it is not late now to resume the ban,” the ministry said, adding “Without it, the European Union’s responsibility for continuing bloodshed in the southeast of Ukraine will increase.”
