‘If Putin crosses over Ukraine, this is the end of European carelessness’
Summary of the most important events for August 11 by head of Information resistance group Dmytro Tymchuk
1. The ATO forces are conducting assault operations in the areas of Donetsk, Luhansk, Torez (thus solving the issue of the notorious “N21 highway problem”), and others. Raids are regularly conducted during which command centers, live forces and terrorist equipment are destroyed.
Today we talked about the fact that the successes of these raids get partially offset by the constant flow of new deliveries of Russian cannon fodder and weapons from Putin. But it is difficult to argue that nonetheless such actions by our army have a powerful demoralizing effect on the insurgents, and the fact that their losses significantly exceed the replacements from Russia.
The NSDC also reports citing intelligence reports that desertion is becoming an epidemic in the “LNR” and “DNR” [Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics]. Not every fool is ready, for any amount of Moscow money, to play Putin’s game called “To the last drop of blood”.
2. The President of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso, in a telephone conversation with Putin warned Moscow, as the report says, from “any unilateral military action in Ukraine, on any grounds, including humanitarian”.
I don’t know what Europe is prepared to do if the Kremlin sends it packing with its own warnings. But if the Europeans have, after all, decided on a third round of economic sanctions, then there is hope that they are prepared to go even further if the situation continues to develop in a negative manner.
Our primary victory is in the fact that Brussels has fully realized – the bright future of Europe is being decided today in Donbas. If Putin crosses over Ukraine, this is the end of European carelessness. “If Wichita falls, then Wichita Falls will fall”.
3. The government of Ukraine is establishing the State Service of Ukraine for Veteran and ATO Participant Affairs.
This is a very correct initiative. I just sincerely hope that ATO participants won’t repeat the fate of veterans when they are only remembered on major holidays and people give them flowers with tears in their eyes while forgetting about their problems the next day. On the other hand, today’s heroes, who are protecting Ukraine from Raschism, give us another reason to re-evaluate the great feat of our grandfathers, who defended our land from Nazism.
