Dated to July 16th: Global Research: Military Briefings from Donbass and Lugansk: Ukraine Regime Forces in Retreat, Experience Substantial Losses.
While the report is authored by the Lugansk People's Republic Militia, what implies an unhidden bias, I find it quite interesting that they are able to report so many details on Ukraine's military defeats, desertions and disorganization.
- Sustained loses on a failed Ukrainian offensive
- Liberation of Marinovka
- Several military jets' being hit
- Three "Uki" brigades fleeing in panick
- Many desertions, even among Nazi death squads' ranks: On the hottest parts of the front, Ukies have been observed throwing away their weapons, taking off their military markings, with some even removing their uniforms and changing into civilian clothes, and running toward the Russian border. Those who have no civilian clothes with them run with peeled-off epaulets. Some, and, in particular, members of the punitive battalions and Praviy Sector militants, have been seen stripping to their underwear.
It seems quite apparent that, while the Kiev Junta may have the theoretical means, in the field of morale and actual effective fighting, it is the Popular Republics who are doing a lot better.
