*An official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said today: “ Upon the common will and desire to establish relations in all fields, the Syrian Arab Republic decided to recognize the independence and sovereignty of both the Lugansk People’s Republic and the Donetsk People’s Republic.” It added that there will be communications with both countries to agree on the frameworks of strengthening relations, including establishing diplomatic relations in accordance with the established rules.*
Kyiv has cut diplomatic ties with them as a result.
Quote: "*The extent to which torture is being used and the fact that this is
done systematically prove that torture is an intentional strategy of the
said institutions, authorized by their leadership*"
Golmovskiy district of Gorlovka (DPR) is shelled every day. Yesterday, one civilian woman was killed here. 8 civilians, including a child, were wounded. Previously, this part of Gorlovka was shelled on 22 of June, then on 17 of June (killed two civilian women), than on 16th, 15th, 14th (one civilian killed), and so one for years.
This is a photo of workers, who are helping people whos house was damaged yesterday. **Today, Golmovskiy is shelled again!** As for now, three civilians are wounded, including a teenage girl.
Gorlovka's workers are brave and selfless. There are numerous examples when workers, who arrived at the scene of shelling, were shelled again, wounded and killed.
Today we can already talk about about 25 thousand political prisoners in Ukraine.
For example, a 48-year-old was arrested for this post on social networks:
"Ukrainians, tell me how it's possible:
1) walk around with Nazi symbols, but call Putin "Hitler";
2) ask "where did you see Bandera?" openly declaring Bandera a national hero;
3) destroy their cities, killing their citizens for the sake of the unity of their country;
4) claim that Russia attacked Ukraine and flee to Russia to hide from being drafted into the army and look for work in Russia;
5) declare Russia an aggressor and at the same time ask her for a discount on gas.”
On April 30, 2022, the police, together with the Security Service of Ukraine, searched the villager and took away the instrument of crime - computer equipment.
For "collaboration activities" (Article 111-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine), **he faces 15 years in prison.**
A 54-year-old resident of the city of Olevsk also faces 15 years in prison for "denying the aggression of the Russian Federation" near a kindergarten.
6 years old Alina Grebennikova was wounded on June 21 in Makeevka, DPR. A boy, born in 2009, and a woman were also wounded in that shelling. Sadly, the girl didn't make it. She died today. People are bringing flowers and toys to the school where she studied.
Today, two people in DPR were killed in shelling. Cities of DPR are shelled every day every hour with everything Ukrainian army has, including new presents from NATO.
For no reason at all except for demoralization, terror, and ukrainian ethnonationalism.
*How did your summer start? For Donetsk citizens it started with yet another shelling with western-made weapons. Ukrainian troops are shelling residential areas of Donetsk. There is no Russian military there, Ukraine deliberately targets innocent civilians. Who are the USA and Europe fighting with these Nazis they sponsor?*
Correspondent Roman Kosarev: *"I look at today's picture from a car DVR in the Kiev district of Donetsk — and immediately remember 2015. Then my friend and I went to rescue our driver from the commandant's office in the Petrovsky district. He simply forgot his accreditation and was detained until clarification. Everyone was vigilant, and everything was according to the rules, as it should be. I was driving, and we were crossing the bridge right after the Textile Worker. Suddenly, a few dozen meters away from me, pieces of asphalt began to take off, approaching our car. He hit the brakes, turned 180 degrees — and at full speed began to move away from the falling "Grads". We drove a couple of kilometers, stopped, and, it seems, I regained the ability to breathe air. Before that, only adrenaline and the desire to survive. Eight years have passed, and Ukraine does not change tactics. Terror of the civilian population. They can't do anything else"*
This particular compilation documents 27/7-14/8 2014.
If someone watches this and they still don't care about the people living there, then they have no empathy.
This was originally uploaded on youtube, but obviously got taken down. I'm not sure who the original creator was.
Russia is giving IDs and clearing people of debt. Version that this will be some kind of semi-independent region now doesn't hold up because of IDs, also Russia seems to really going to win this one also because of going through the process of giving IDs.
I don't believe this was the plan, but since the "first phase" failed, Russia has no other option other than annexing as much of Ukraine as possible.
The shrapnel is part of the HE-ER Nammo 155mm shell.
These Norwegian-made shells are among the most effective and highly accurate in the world. At a range of 20 kilometers, they show a deviation of up to 30 meters.
This is one of the newest projectiles of this caliber. **They are sniper's level of precision** and do not require sophisticated fire control systems.
**This shrapnel was found after the shelling of Vishnevsky hospital and residential areas.**
The only baby that was not lowered into the basement. The baby was born prematurely and could not be disconnected from the ventilator. The head of department was there the whole time. Both survived, no one was hurt, although the blast blew out all the windows in the intensive care unit.
Truly an incredible piece of music. One of the best anthems I've ever heard. I feel such a rush of inspiration every time I listen to it. Part of me wishes they stuck with it. I prefer it over the current one. But all of their anthems are good.
On June 4, 2022, artillery of Ukrainian troops from the Avdiivka area (under the control of the Kyiv authorities) once again fired at the center of Donetsk.
5 people were killed and 20 injured.
Ukrainian social networks were filled with the jubilation of "patriots" on this occasion.
With the same jubilation as on June 2, 2014, when as a result of the bombing of Ukrainian aircraft in Luhansk, 8 civilians were killed and 28 were injured.
Why are the troops of the Kyiv authorities shelling places where there are no enemy military facilities, but only civilians?
Of course, to intimidate them, to sow uncertainty, to show their strength.
But there is another factor.
Residents of Donbass for the Kyiv authorities and the Nazi formations that make up the elite units in the National Guard of Ukraine and the army are strangers.
The campaign to dehumanize the inhabitants of Donbass began in Ukraine long before 2014.
Despite the official statements that "Donbass is Ukraine," from the media controlled by the Kyiv regime (and there are no others), it always sounded: "In the Donbass live people of the lowest class, lumpen, proletarians, traitors, they are not Ukrainians."
They are strangers to the Kyiv authorities and the Nazis.
So they can and should be killed?

Western media ignores that for over than 8 years Donetsk People's Republic and Lugansk People's Republic are suffering from Ukrainian aggression. It all started back in 2014, when USA supported far-right coup wasn't supported by many regions in the Eastern part of Ukraine.
People in Eastern Ukraine is mostly Russian speaking and they wanted to be represented and respected. After the coup, the new government supported and encouraged the nazis, who helped them to get to the top. The social stigma against Eastern Ukrainians got even worse than it had already been. Apart from cultural, there were also economical consequences and perspectives that made people worry about the coup. There were no calls for independence from Ukraine at the beginning. People wanted autonomy to make their voice in politics stronger. They organized rallies against the right tendencies and demanded more autonomy in economical questions.
Ukrainian army with neo nazi battalions have been shelling Donetsk People's republic and Luhansk People's republic since then. Western and Ukrainian media don't want to acknowledge what this is Ukrainian side who's been killing and wounding people. For example, OSCE reported on February, 19 this year: "Observers from the OSCE European security body on Saturday reported more than 1,500 ceasefire violations in east Ukraine in a single day, the highest number this year. In a report covering attacks on Friday, its monitors recorded 591 breaches in Donetsk and 975 violations in neighbouring Lugansk, two regions partly held by Russian-backed separatists".
