Street Fighting in Debaltsevo

Posted on the 18 February 2015 by Calvinthedog

NAF street fighting in Debaltsevo, probably today. The situation in this video is dangerous as Hell. The Prime Minister of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Zacharchenko, was injured in the ankle by a mortar round in Debaltsevo today when he ventured into the city in the middle of the fighting. Apparently he will be ok. I think this guy likes danger. He also appeared in the middle of the insane fighting Uglegorsk. I could not believe he was on the front lines of that battle. I am not sure the President of your country ought to be showing up on the front lines of the war your country is fighting. He may well get hurt or killed. I do not see the point.

This street by street fighting is extremely dangerous and I understand there are very heavy casualties from this battle. The NAF is claiming that 2,500 Ukrainians are casualties (killed or wounded) in the Debaltsevo pocket. Another 375 have surrendered, mostly in the past day. They claim that another 2,000 are still running about in the pocket.

The latest from Debaltsevo is that the NAF has taken the entire city and the Ukrainians have evacuated the town for other parts of the pocket. The Ukrainians still occupy some fairly large cities in this pocket.

Ukrainian President Poroshenko still will not give the order to surrender which strikes me as insane.

The NAF had claimed before that up to half of the Ukrainian troops in the pocket were some sort of NATO mercenaries from a variety of NATO countries. They have not proved that assertion yet, and as of now, there is no evidence for large numbers of NATO volunteer fighters in the pocket.
