OK, then back to the languages this tread is reserved for.
Hey sinkomies! Good to have you back. We were almost worried not hearing from you.Tough week. Just got back last night from one weeks+ work. Ill look at the new questions later.
All I can say is that if I have myself not been 100% sure before, now I know for certain - the enemy here is not made up from miners, workers and eastern ukrainian drunkards. Theese are Russian regulars, which work, behave and plan their doings as regulars do. The first line of defence was quickly routed at Sherokyne a few days ago, but the second line held. Both sides suffered casualties, mainly from the artillery. The russians lost at least one BMP2 and one BMP and T-64 damaged. Our side lost mainly soft vehicles and to my knowledge no heavy hardware.
Hard times, hard times. Lets now see how this cease fire works out...

A few questions:
As far as i've heard, your batallion attacked from Mariupol to east. How far did you reach? And what is the situation now?
What about the ceasefire? Are both sides respecting the ceasefire nearby Mariupol? Do people think it will hold? Do you think Poroshenko will declare Matrial law?
What have you heard about Debaltseve? Is the situation as bad as it seems?
Anyway. I wish you the best.
We took villiages in about line with Sherokyne, east of Mariupol and held it for four days. On friday our team was sent south to Sherokyne and the next morning the enemy assault started. The old defensiveline west of the town held and the enemy took some losses as well, but the town more or less belongs to them now, or should be considered no mans land. At the moment, Donbass batallion has relieved us, but its questionable how long they will hold their ground before needing help themselves.
Well, the ceasefire mostly concerns heavy weapons. Artillery has been a lot less frequent after its implementation.
Dont know anything sure about Debaltseve, but from what Ive heard from a friend who was there - massacre.
So if I understand correctly, the infarty and ground vehicles are still attacking like before, but artillery is not used as much as before? Or is it used at all?
Sorry for all the questions .
