5 Ukrainian servicemen killed and 33 wounded since the beginning of the ceasefire – Russian troops have made it bloody
Terrorists need to capture as much territory as possible before the beginning of negotiations on ‘special status’ of Donbas regions. Because the more they occupy now, the more will become those ‘special territories’.
Summary of the most important events for September 9, 2014 by Dmytro Tymchuk and Information Resistance group
During the so-called ‘ceasefire’ in the Donbas 5 Ukrainian servicemen have been killed (4 of them – soldiers of Ukrainian armed forces), 33 were wounded. As it might be expected, Russian-terrorists troop have already made this truce ‘bloody’. We have already been through it in June.
National Security and Defense Council calls this day to be ‘relatively stable’ since the beginning of the ceasefire. However, one shouldn’t relax now. On the contrary: one cannot exclude activation of terrorists in the nearest future in order to displace Ukrainian troop from positions they currently occupy.
Firstly, in case they are going to continue hostilities they need it to ensure more favourable positions for Russian army and fighters. Secondly, they need to capture as much territory as possible before the beginning of negotiations on ‘special status’ of Donbas regions. Because the more they occupy now, the more will become those ‘special territories’.
However, these cunning guys want more: the ‘Prime Minister’ of DNR [Donetsk People’s Republic] A. Zakharchenko has stated that DNR applies for the whole territory of Donetsk oblast and wouldn’t agree only for the part it currently occupies.
In their turn, Ukrainian troops fortify their defense. Everyone understands that every metre of Ukrainian land give to occupants now would be returned with great effort and, probably, losses.
