Tymchuk: ‘The Russians began to use their brains and realize what a bloody abyss Putin is pushing them into’
Summary of the most important events for August 27, 2014 by head of Centre of Military and Political Studies Dmytro Tymchuk
1. The ATO headquarters is taking measures to save the situation both in the south and in the direction of Amvrosiivka-Ilovaisk. Reinforcements are coming here at last. In Ilovaisk our guys are holding a part of the city and access roads as well as the elevations in the surrounding areas. The sweep continues in the settlements of Illyria, Malomykolaivka, and Rodakovo. Our troops are holding positions in the area of Khryashchuvate, Novosvitlivka, and Savur-Mohyla.
The situation has not changed dramatically throughout the day. But given the events of recent days in terms of the increased activity by the Russian occupiers, that’s more of a positive than a negative fact.
2. For the first time in six months of Russian invasion, the Russians began to use their brains and realize what a bloody abyss Putin is pushing them into. The Russian Federation has no sympathy or pity whatsoever for Ukrainians who are being killed daily in their own country at the behest of the Kremlin. But the Russians suddenly realized that they have to pay for the theft, so joyful for them, of the territories and sovereignty of Ukraine. With the lives of their warriors.
For us, this is a bleak discovery: every Russian – be it a mercenary or a soldier – who is killed in Ukraine – is one step more towards ending the meat grinder in Donbas. This is another step toward the enlightenment of the Russian society and towards their pressuring their own authorities to stop the aggression in Ukraine.
How many more of these Russian aggressors do we need to kill, so that this very weak voice of Russian mothers gets heard in the Kremlin – I don’t know. But this voice has finally come out, and this is a positive fact.
