    Rud.png

    Sailor (the military ranks of Ukrainian marines don't make sense to me) Dmytro Rud from 503rd Marines Battalion 36th Marines Brigade was killed on May 17th, 2018 by shrapnel from an anti-personnel RPG round. He'll stay 20 forever. the identity of the second Ukrainian soldier who was killed on May 17th, 2018 hasn't been made public yet.

    Some updates from the front. There is pretty amuch media blackout on the Ukrainian side, and the Russians are reporting massive losses among "NATO troops". What I can tell and confirm from limited snippets is that the fighting began to escalate on May 10th, with Russian forces aiming to show the U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine, Kurt Volker who was visiting Ukrainian front lines a couple of days ago who's the boss.

    Ukrainians were ready for the above scenario and inserted recon teams behind Russian lines. This tactics paid dividends, as Ukrainian troops managed to intercept, destroy, and in one case even capture Russian mortar battery.

    120mm mortars captured by the recon unit of the 30th infantry brigade.

    Without effective mortar support Russian lines broke in several places. According to the Ukrainian official press releases, "Ukrainian troops improved their positions in a few places". That's it.

    It looks like the biggest gains were made by the 24th infantry brigade operating near Horlyvka.

    In order to blunt Ukrainian advance, Russian command ordered the so-called "15th International Brigade" to attack Ukrainian positions in Avdiivka industrial zone. The attack failed even before it started when Ukrainian paratroopers and "Right Sector" volunteers managed to track down and kill the Russian brigade commander and most likely his staff as well.

    Russian national, Oleg Mamiev, a native of North Osetia call sign "Mamai" commander of the 15th Brigade will not be murdering anyone anymore.

    After suffering setbacks at the front, Russian artillery (122mm SPGs or D-30s howitzers) opened fire on civilian areas behind Ukrainian lines killing and maiming several civilians in the process. Ukrainians conducted anti-battery fire in kind.

    As always, Russian film crew headed by one of the better known Russian propagandists, Aleksandr Sladkov (I wrote about him in one of the Georgian threads) from Russia 1 TV Channel was there to film the usual segment "horrors of Ukrainian junta and the noble actions of patriots of the Russian world from all over"



    Official Russian version an explosion in the air of VOG-17 grenade.

    Please note that some of the fighters on the Russian side speak in a language other than Russian and have heavy accents.
