Russian reporter embedded with LPR forces: Russian translatedThu 10:34 pm Europe/London, 9 Jun 2022 2
Narrator: These aerial shots prove the road between the two groups of Kyiv militants in Lisichansk and Gorsk is blocked by LPR artillery. The chances of being surrounded by neo-Nazis are getting higher, which is why they are so clinging to the outskirts of the neighboring village of Toshkovka this Khrushchevkas (name for this type of buildings) area. A Ukrainian tank enters a firing position, not in a field, not in a forest, but simply hiding behind residential buildings after a shot it rolls back, silence in response. Gets bold and drives out onto the road so the troops of the LPR manage to lure the enemy out (residential area). A Lugansk tank unexpectedly jumps out of the forest and hits the enemy… recochet, the Ukrainian crew was lucky today, It would seem two tanks against one, but the tanks of the neo-Nazis are running away from Toshkovka at full speed, again hiding behind the houses, the Luhansk tankers, on the contrary, are moving forward. Tank commander: We “work out”, and then the infantry comes in, we go to load and come back, then we “work” from other places and help the infantry move on.
Narrator: And now the units of the people’s militia of the LPR calmly and confidently approach the five-story buildings, which the formations of the Kyiv regime turned into fortified areas, having driven out the residents. There are boxes of ammunition under the balconies, in each entrance (and communal space) there are firing points between which militants move. Commander of an anti-tank battery of the LPR troops: They hide in houses, between houses and garages. 2-3 floor – machine gun crews, anti-tank installations and their snipers.
Narrator: Commander of an anti-tank battery of 4th brigade of LPR forces with nickname “Chepai” he went into the militia in the 14th year. In the past, an oncologist, now surgically precisely destroys the positions of militants in high-rise buildings like metastases, just have time to bring the projectiles. The troops of the LPR deliberately do not cover the residential area with massive fire from rocket systems, they work from high-precision Rapira guns, from a kilometer with direct fire. Taking advantage of the fact that the Lugansk defenders are acting carefully, the militants are trying to set up ambushes, the detachment leaves in a minibus, dismounts and for some reason stands for a long time trying to contact someone by radio, later it becomes clear that this point where the armored vehicles were supposed to deliver weapons, but Ukrainian armored vehicle went straight to the new positions of the LPR and were destroyed, burning fuel spills, grenade launchers detonate (including Western ones).
Reporter: Ukrainian fighters were unable to deliver ammunition to the front line. the fire was so strong that even the cartridges were destroyed, only empty machine-gun belts remained.
Narrator: It remains to deal with a detachment of militants. Through the powder smoke, you can see how the neo-Nazis, clinging to each other, are trying to survive a real avalanche of fire. Stampede, at first one group breaks away from the place, after a few seconds the second flees. They manage to get back to the five-story buildings, but not all of them, one militant died, and the other two are so shackled by fear that they cannot stick their heads out. One loses his nerves and suddenly rushes somewhere into the fields moving away from both the front line and the Ukrainian positions, the second clogs deeper into the slabs, curls up and just waits for his fate. but the Lugansk defenders did not kill the Ukrainian soldier, the detachment moves forward, ties the militant’s hands and quickly withdraws to the rear of the LPR troops. Here he joins the ranks of other captives, they are all conscripts, they say they evaded the army as best they could.
POW: They took me off the bus right at the checkpoint(guess it’s about how they catched him). I even changed my last name so that they wouldn’t take me into the army…
Narrator: Prisoners are treated here in accordance with all the norms of international conventions, LNR fighters even give cigarettes and a light, but their comrades-in-arms in Ukrainian captivity have a completely treatment.
. Soldier?: When my soldier, who was in your captivity, asked for a cigarette, his ribs were broken.
Narrator: Ukrainian nationalists did what they wanted, residents of Toshkovka say: they went to their home, threatened and took everything of value.
Man with glasses: These are marauders which the world has never seen, I’m ashamed that I lived in this country, that’s all (leaving).
The second man: They robbed the mine plant(?) right in front of us for two days, then the “troshka” store.
Narrator: Only these two residents have so far been able to get out of the bomb shelter of the liberated Toshkinskaya mine, there are still half a hundred civilians there, they were at first used as a human shield and now Ukrainian militants are bombing them.
Read this transcript in the light of the claims of the British mercenary that he was duped; even if he was, if he had similar experiences to these chaps, could he not have left Ukraine as other mercenaries have done once they learned what they were involved in and the risks they were taking?
For the UK government to come out and ask that these men be treated as prisoners of war, instead of the mercenaries that they are, is a blatant admission that Russia is at war with NATO. Those of us who follow the real news have known this from the start.
