"On February 21 the two sides exchanged gunfire, there were local skirmishes. But, in general, it was even quiet!

Today the enemy conducted art. strike at Krasny Pakhar and our forces at Troitskoye. Also there were strikes at our forces near Gorlovka, namely Shumy, Dolomitnoye and our units on the outskirts of Mayorsk, which is now a buffer zone - but it is often used as a platform for the enemy artillery. According to local residents, AFU attacked National Guard, that is the enemy has infightings. This has recently happened in the north of the LPR (occupied territory).

The newspaper "New York Times" reports of Debaltsevo defeat: the dead and wounded were left in the snow, many soldiers got out on foot. "The President of Ukraine Poroshenko tries to represent a retreat from Debaltsevo as Ukraine's victory, but the loss of the city is obviously a painful defeat in the war against the militia" - so American newspaper "The New York Times" begins an article about Debaltsevo. Poroshenko’s decision not to give up the city to militia peacefully, on which he had been insisting in recent days, including talks in Minsk, led to serious losses in the ranks of the AFU during the first attempts of mass escape from the city.

1:35 Message from a local resident.


"Kuibyshevsky district of Donetsk. Fired twice: at 01:12 6 pieces of Uragan came and at 01:14 6-8 pieces. Everything in the apartment was shaking. By nightfall the Ukrainian security forces intensified on their positions. Apparently, using the" truce ", they pulled up a new equipment to replace destroyed and damaged one, and restocked ammo. One cannot agree with the AFU by any "truce" and "Minsk agreements". Once the security forces get a break, they use it not for "peace", but to prepare for further terror and to lick their wounds. Only the victory of one of the parties can terminate shelling. But the victory entire and permanent with the total defeat of the conquered enemy. Then we get the long-awaited freedom and peace. "
