The deputy chief medical director of the Military Medical Service of the Ministry of Defense


of Donetsk republic talking about tortures and chemical biological and other unconventional weapon using by Kiev junta. Full translation of interview below:
ДНР. Донецк. Интервью с зам. начмеда о пленных. 16.09.2014
Doctor: I am a deputy chief medical director of the Military Medical Service of the Ministry of Defense.
Journalist: Could you tell us what the situation is with the fighters liberated from captivity?
D: Within one week we received five of them. Two of them are in respectively normal condition. Phycologists and psychiatrists are working them because it is very difficult for them to cope with this now. And three other fighters are in serious condition. One of them has an Ilizarov apparatus on his legs [ The Ilizarov compression-distraction apparatus is a medical device intended for long-term fixation of bone fragments], he is more or less fine, he can still walk. But the two are difficult: one of them has a head injury. He was obviously hit into his head with a metal object, supposedly a metal stick. There, in captivity they tried to operate on him and do a craniotomy. Obviously unsuccessfully. He literally came with two holes in his head which were not healed. His left kidney is injured. He was seriously beaten. He has got broken fingers and was left with no teeth. You can tell that they did it intentionally, they tortured him. Another seriously injured fighter… he was beaten into kidneys and liver, lumbar part of the spine is injured… his face, well, it is just a violet mask. They must have beaten him intentionally. He also doesn’t have any teeth left, his nose is broken. In general, they can hardly move by themselves. They are subjected to intensified medical treatment.
J: What is their mental condition now? Shock?
D: After the tortures? I think there is more than just a shock. They are terrified now, terrified of a lot of things. However, they are trying to boost the morale, they are very glad that they are in DPR now, among their guys. But they are very, very depressed. Of course, psychologists are working with them. And they are interrogated by our Special Service, because they have been there [in the captivity of Ukrainian army], they have seen something, we are interested in details. It is clear that today they can be filmed under no account. Maybe in a week or two you will be able to talk to them if they will be willing to, because a lot of people like that don’t want to be filmed. Even those who were simply injured. They are afraid for their families. They are afraid of “cleansing” [cleansing is action of fascists then they broke doors, beat people who in homes and take somebody out for torturers]. There is the third round of “cleansing” in Kramatorsk now. A lot of people have their families there. Their children, mothers, fathers. That is why they do not want to talk on camera.
J: Can we say they tortures are applied everywhere and to all the fighters [of DPR and LPR]?
D: Absolutely yes. For example, quite some time ago already, but still we had a girl that was tortured. She had destroyed muscles of heels. Atrociously injured, she could not walk. She had wounds on her arms and bruises all over soft tissue of her back. Everybody is severely bitten.
…In addition we were receiving the 300th [the code for the wounded] after the exchange. Yes, the wounded. The simply looked like a piece of meat, because they had ribs sticking out of torn skin, and the wound was rotting. This is the condition, in which our wounded are brought to us. As for the wounded Ukrainians, we give them back clean, well-fed and dressed. All wrapped up in neat white bandages, all of them get highest level medical assistance. All of them are polished clean. When we give them back they look like baby dolls. But we get back bags with meat. As I told, there are many guys with open wounds and ribs sticking out, they come to us, come to our hands and die. The die after getting back to their own people. They simply can’t bear this any longer.
J. : So there are very many lethal cases, right?
D.: There have been cases, when 300th become 200th [the code for the dead] only because they relax.
J.: Do you know how many our guys are still kept as POW by Ukraine?
D.: I think there are many enough. We cannot keep accurate count. Many guys join the militia without even informing their parents. Some go siply saying “mom, I am going to join the militia, bye”. There are a lot of unidentified people – both those killed and the wounded. Many are brought to us, and they can’t remember, where they are from and who and what they are. The know they are from DPR, they know they are members of militia, but sometimes they can remember their first name, but can’t remember their surname. It happens very often after severe blast injuries… Even the consequences of this – if they are delivered to us right after the blast injury happens, they can remember. If such a person tells us everything right away – it is good, we remember that. However after two or three days pass, the consequences start and he starts losing his memory. We had one youg man, he could not remember his mom’s phone number. He could only remember the first figures – 095, and that was it. So we struggling for a whole week pulling him out so he could remember his mom’s phone number. Thank god he remembered. These are very severe consequences. It is very hard.
J.: Are there any guys, who have come back to normal, and what is their fate?
D. : Well, we have put a lot of guys back on their feet. Many of them are already back to their units at the frontline. Almost all of them go back to the front line. Sometimes they even run away. He gets some medical assistance, sees that he can walk and hold his rifle – so he runs away. They simply run away to the front line. Certainly, we put a lot of guys back on their feet and recovered them, but we also have a lot, who are severely wounded. There are very many severely wounded people in our hospitals. Now we get a lot of severe burns. I don’t know what they are throwing at our guys, I can’t give you such information, although I also go to the front line, but they come to us severely burnt. They are probably using some sort of napalm. There are poisonings…
For example there is a piece of GRAD rocket lying in my yard. Just near it there is a cluster bomb. I mean the fact that they are using prohibited weapons is no some kind of play or invented stories – this is a real fact. They are bombing us with anything they can. One village here was shelled with something, which nobody can identify. All the people were vomiting and had terrible diarrhea. And no matter what they eat or drink – they would vomit. It took is 3-4 hours to stop the vomiting. Then we would pump 3-4 liters of medicine into them, and only then they would more or less come back to normal. Can you imagine that – we basically had to completely clean-wash their whole organism. This is what in fact happened to that village. There were at least 60-70 such people. And they included anyone from little babies to very old people with zero immunity. As for being taken prisoner…
This is horrible. Becoming a prisoner is horrible for our guys. I think it is better to right away shoot oneself instead. There is no guarantee that you will get out alive. Our you can come back as a cripple – who needs a cripple? Many people think about this. The relative clearly think different – no matter what the condition is, they just want him back alive. But they are horribly tortured there. Just horribly.
J.: Thank you for your comment.
Truth About Situation in Ukraine


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.


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.


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.

In LC a

The other day, the men created a volunteer battalion were certified professional military army Novorossia. Division, which included experienced soldiers as well-known self-defense groups, as “Ghost” and recruits without experience, given the name “August”.

“This name was chosen not only because the battalion begins his biography in the last month of summer, but also in honor of the Holy Mother of God of the August – told me the battalion commander Alexander Kostin with the call “Dad.”

As western media outlets  continually  portray the patriots in SE Ukraine as “terrorists” the truth is that these men and women  are patriots fighting for their homeland, families  and preservation of cultural identity.
They join the militia from all walks of life; automobile plant workers, coal miners, fathers, grandfathers, sons and daughters joining together to fight the foreign controlled junta in Kiev which has unleashed the dogs of war in their pursuit of selfish interests using the bandera worshiping thugs of right_sector to commit acts of murder and genocide.  The following is a translated transcipt of an interiew with a man who’s sacred honor called him to duty. Remember someday when the NWO comes to your country you will be called a terrorist for resisting tyranny.


The Parliament of Donetsk National Republic approved the selection of  Ministers The Civil Service Security is headed by Alexander Khodakovsky

Interview with Alexander Khodakovsky  commander of  “Vostok” or “East” battalion, who also  took part in the battle for the Prokofiev International Airport in  Donetsk.
Civil Service Security director Alexander Khodakovsky was until March 2014
commander of the Ukrainian  Government  “Alpha” SBU, and the  highest-ranking security official yet to join the People’s Republic of Donetsk. In early May, he began to form a battalion “Vostok” – the official armed forces of the DNR, and  most efficient division.
The battalion has participated in several  major defensive battles in Donbass and in particular the battle for control of the airport at Donetsk. On the prospects of the DNR, the everyday life of the battalion “Vostok”, about the battle at the airport and about their personal motives Khodakovsky said in an interview.

Alexander, why name  the battalion – “Vostok”? Immediately there is an association with the Chechen battalion “Vostok” that existed before 2008.

– Just decided to be original. We’re still east of Ukraine. Number was originally the size of a battalion, so it was  well defined – a battalion.
Tolstoy* (considered to be the first modern  war correspond covered the Crimean War) He said: “War can be a strange thing; a battalion at war can sometimes be stronger than a  division and sometimes – weaker than a  company.” Everything depends on the morale and  readiness for self-sacrifice.
As for the Chechens, they were really there. Now there are none. It was a twenty-something man, less than 30. Now none. We asked them to return to their historic homeland, not to confuse the local population.

– It is now more than a battalion?

– Much more. We have been creating new battalions.

– Are not you afraid that this “Chechen” name scare Ukrainian population? It is convenient to use in propaganda. You called – Chechen battalion.

– If we talk about the people outside of DNR – do not need to frighten them. They are already intimidated by the Ukrainian media, which is already affiliated and biased. One superimposed on the other fiction – it will not change anything.

Are  locals well aware of what is happening here.

– In general,  are there a lot of Russian people?

– A little less than 1 percent. By the way, Russia does not welcome their participation. They crossed here in violation of the Russian border.

– And from other regions of Ukraine?

– Kharkiv, Odessa, Nikolaev, Kherson, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhye. We have become the center of attraction. But 90 percent – from the Donbas.

– You have a serious weapons;  anti-aircraft guns, anti-tank “bassoon” MANPADS “Igla” how did you get these?

– Semi-military bases. We are not a military unit subordinated to their control. Thank the  Ukrainian army – supplies than can (laughs).

– You pay your people?

– No, people here do not get payed. Sometimes we get sponsors and distribute it to people somehow helped their families.

– From Poroshenko were promises that “the operation will take weeks, and watch.” When will fulfill these promises?

– These policies. They promise easy. And they will implement the common soldiers, which we will kill, and they will try to kill us. No we do not want. Neither do  they. Therefore, the task will execute Poroshenko not easy. Ukraine has put a lot of effort, even to cope with the Slavonic – yet we do not see results.

– You can predict the next actions of the Ukrainian security services? What will they do?

– Options for a bit. Only three. First, as they did not do anything and will not do. Stand on their positions. The second option would be taken troops. Or they will go to desperate attack useless. Find money somewhere to refuel its military technology, which stands with empty tanks. Maybe somewhere a couple suhpaykov will earn.

– Of the three options for what is most likely?

– Rock, Paper, Scissors (laughs). I can not say anything now.

– At the time, leaders promised military operation “surgical strikes in which civilians will not suffer.” As far as they are likely? The attack on the Luhansk Regional State Administration – this is their beginning?

– After the airport, I would not be surprised at anything. I was convinced that the Ukrainian government will not agree to the use of air in relation to the airport. Assumed a war of nerves. We wanted to make the airport a powerful group to dominate in this area, to control the runway. We are aware that through this airport supplied weapons and manpower of our enemy. Naturally, we had to stop it.

We have a “Needles”. But we did not even take them with you – did not expect that Ukraine will have enough sense to apply aviation. Still, the airport – this multi-billion dollar project. His only “Euro-2012” did. To what degree of cynicism need to reach to decide on it?

A Ukrainian government has decided abandon  principle. It was just a massacre of the innocents. Still aviabombardirovki – a dangerous thing.
Apparently, Kiev found that for him, the region lost. Accordingly, why protect it?

– Do you regret that we went there in the airport?

– Whose is it an expression of Mark Twain? Better to regret what you did than about what you did not. We were not going to kill anyone. We had an agreement with the military, who are guarding the airport, this Kirovograd brigade GRU. We put them on notice that we will be here, take control of dominant height and are not going to cause any harm. I told the commander of the Kirovograd, we carefully treat the lives of those military personnel who are our captured enemies. We notches on the machines do not. These are ordinary normal people, we do not want them dead.
                PRISONER RELEASE
But all these agreements were canceled by one party which has used aircraft.


Ultra mercenaries – they played the scenario Maidana, when shot in one, or the other way. To stimulate aggression. As a result, part of Kirovograd, realizing that it fired its well deployed anti-aircraft guns and shot the hell out of the sniper’s position, which was in the Mission Control Center.

– What kind of people that you call nationalists and mercenaries?

– The fact that forces loyal to Kiev rather disjointed. Have an army, which has its own sense of honor and ethics, which is not trained to fight against their own people. And fight against us they do not want.
And there are nationalists, of which form the battalions of the National Guard. It is filled with to stupor ideology people with Maidana and west of Ukraine. Ideological comrades who were simply received into the national guard. Ready to kill those who refuse.  Battalions “Dnepr”, “Azov”, “Donbass” is not guided by any rules. They have an enemy, and they use  all available means fighting this enemy. All under the knife. (recent example was the slaughter of patients at a hospital at Lyn editor note)

Here, for example, as it was in Mariupol. (Khodakovsky meant clashes in Mariupol May 9, which killed about ten people – approx. Ed.) Was formed by a gang of such ideological comrades, are civilians,which was only  declared as national guard.  Two days before the event, the number of the 7th, the head of the Eastern territorial command of internal troops  Mr. Swan gave them at the disposal  of the domestic forces in Mariupol. Those two days arrived, dressed in national guard uniforms without any documents received all the weapons brought weapons to fight at some landfill. And on May 9 showed us what they can do. People were shooting anywhere and anybody.
– Supporters of the DNR often talk about foreign mercenaries who allegedly fought against you. Who are these people, how many mercenaries here and do you have any evidence of their presence?

– How many of them, I find it difficult to say, but we’re on the air during a fight constantly hear foreign callsigns, an English speech. They talk to each other, give orders.

This is primarily snipers. And pilots, I think it is also foreigners. Hard to imagine that Ukrainian aviators with their scanty training  could perform such a high-level aerobatics.

Mercenaries – are a  special breed. Whether  Americans or Russian. These are people who lack  any moral or ethical standards.

For the money they are willing to kill anyone. They are not limited by any of the rules. There are also international conventions that involve attitude to the wounded, the dead. We still can not pick up their dead from the airport. Can you imagine that happening? Warm weather …

– Are there many corpses  there?

– I think not less than ten.

– How many casualties  did your battalion suffer on 26 May, during the fight, and in the following days?

– From 60 to 70 people. Inaccurate, because we can not determine the fate of those people we found ourselves missing from their ranks.

– Do you think that the situation is a stalemate? Neither Kiev can not crush you or you can not get rid of the army?

– The situation is really a stalemate. And it undermines the possibility of a political solution to the conflict. If someone has dominated, in the dominant hand inevitably there would be a desire to realize their potential. And so it is possible to negotiate. Us from Kiev do not need much. Only that they leave the confines of our region.

– Kiev can it go? After all, there sure Donbass – region of Ukraine.

– He will be forced to go for it. Because we believe otherwise. You can safely and peacefully disperse and remain friends. And you can shed so much blood, which then in all ages will not pay.

– How do you see the future of Donbass? This part of Ukraine, part of Russia, an independent state?

– Veiled answer: Donbass not self-sufficient. He is very much integrated into the system of market relations between Ukraine and other countries, with Russia in particular. If we lived in a self sustained  economy, then we could talk about full autonomy …

Branched off from one economy to another must pripochkovatsya.

– There is a chance that the DNR will remain a part of Ukraine on the rights of some autonomy?

– Lets not  decide policy. Because people in the battalion apolitical. They went up in arms is not for something and against something. Against the prospect that awaits us.

– And what will happen Donbass, if he stays in Ukraine?

– The logic is simple. Forces that publicly declared democratic ways of developing countries, most undemocratic way came to power. Whatever you think of Yanukovych, he was the legitimate president. Unable to declare the same values ​​and behave quite differently and will not stand.
Assuming a rise to power, they have demonstrated how to act in the future – violating any laws, rules of decency, morality, ethics and everything else.
Plus they have demonstrated their servitude to America. Enlisting the support of America, they determined the future course of development of the country and the political course of the country. All south-east rose up against this future.
Means to be with America in the present circumstances, when there is a radical polarization of the world, to be against Russia. And as the southeast can be against Russia? We’re just trying to prevent the prospect of becoming an enemy of Russia.

– Do you think this prospect is real?

– Of course. Ukraine – a semi-Asiatic country. We do not need to hold a referendum to join or not to join NATO. Enough to plant pro-American president, plant pro-American military – and the whole country will be pro-American.

We gladly will pump all sorts of means to deal with a potential enemy (with Russia – approx. Ed.), We will become a serious threat to Russia. A south-east – part of the Russian world. The prospect of being against the Russian world does not suit us.
Russia must understand one simple fact. We here do not fight for themselves, we are fighting for Russia. By the way, it is very well aware of the Ossetians and Chechens. Everyone thinks that we are fighting for their selfish interests of some, but it is not.
We’re just a small segment in all of this redistribution. Just maybe, that we ax around which porridge cooked.

– When did you decide  to personally go over to the DNR?

– I’m at the Independence Party events. Led the division of Donetsk. (SBU-Alpha) We were there for a long time – you know how much all of these events lasted. We missed all these events through. And it’s so vividly reflected on us …
We did not use a weapon and did not intend to apply. Because basic dogma sounded so – our citizens there. As they threw  bottles, but we did not shoot. Because from the point of view of jurisprudence that would be excessive force.

Even when the plan is developed “clearing”  Trade Union  (Kiev February 19 – approx. Ed.), We have developed it to its detriment in terms of tactical bases, only to clear  all the people who were there. Them to avoid the threat of fire or explosion, because there was a lot of flammable materials and explosives. And we did everything to ensure that people are not killed.
And when came to power illegally those people who now call themselves this power, we were well aware that they are now using us to solve their problems.

I do not even know what to pick epithet to describe this condition. Only that we confronted them humanely – I can competently say that during the events in Kiev no live ammunition was not consumed. I like the unit commander could not imagine how I would execute decrees new leaders who have slandered us, defame after those events. We got less than “Berkut”, but still got. And the prospect that the power that came would make us fight with the protestors forced us to reconsider our place  here in this power structure.

– When did  resign your post at Alpha ?
– When I was given an unlawful order  Further fate of my personnel in relation to all these events is unknown to me.
Once here in March, the event started, we became participants of the public movement “Patriotic Forces of Donbass”.

Just when the trouble came, we have nothing left … If we had to deal with government units – the army, the police, the security forces – the dialogue would be on another level. But since there on the side, began to form “death squads” …. We have the right and obligation to defend itself from these people. Army will not have to cut. These will – without a doubt.

DNR question of not standing. For me DNR – is generally incomprehensible education, to be honest. The question was one edge. Came enemies – we must defend our land. As part of the DNI or under – no difference.

– Your former command knows you’re here?

– Of course.

– Tried to contact you?

– What’s the point? We are on opposite sides. They all understand, we all understand.

– Are not you afraid that your former colleagues in the “Alpha” will throw against you?

– Can throw. But it is their decision – to go or not to obey orders. In clashes with militias they have already entered – the truth, “alfachi” not from Donetsk, and from other regions. And the fight was Slovyansk. However, my good friends from Kiev and deputy head of a department, Sasha died. At the hands of militias. This is war. Everyone makes their own choices.

I warned them that there should not meddle. And not only warned – one of the leaders of the operation personally drove in Slavic, showed how well fortified city, how well equipped the people who keep the city’s defenses. That they have concluded that they are not three or four criminals with guns will take, and what they have to perform the work for which they are not ready.

– Are you  angry at the commander of Defense Igor Strelkov Sloviansk that at the hands of his men were killed your friends?

– We must understand that the arrow is fighting the last ten years (he was a volunteer in Transnistria, Bosnia – approx. Ed.). His attitude to such prosaic things. Fighting – then fighting. This is what we refer to the system of law and order. For us, the value of human life is much greater than for shooting.
But I can not blame him. It is in terms of military action, and it all – the enemies and opponents. Accordingly, he did what he thought was right. Imagine militias, which runs column. Naturally, they react. As a result of death, injury. Of “Alpha”, killing at least three people.
