Dear friends, the news are far from good. Of course, fierce battles of the first years of the war are over as the fighting shifted to a positional format. The process of the enemy’s exhaustion is on; but while Ukraine’s friends among which almost all civilized world is, are throttling the antagonist economically, our guys who resist the occupants physically, continue to lost their lives in the frontline, as the roar of aggressor’s weapons does not practically go down.
Major of the National Guard Serhiy Syrotenko
We have just published a very sad news: it is a list of military killed in the forefront in October. We ask you to read it carefully as a sign of respect for those who lost their lives for our peacetime. November has already scored its black reaping: just yesterday the National Guard of Ukraine confirmed death of its major Serhiy Syrotenko. The tragedy took place near Mariinka: according to earliest data, the Ukrainian officer struck a Russian landmine. Another fighter on contract got injured as well: now medics are taking care of him. People’s Project expresses sincere condolences for the families of the dead for their losses and believes the terrorists will be held responsible for their crimes. Social networks also inform about one more volunteer soldier KIA but we still do not possess detailed data on this. Three more fighters got wounded in the Prymorsky direction; please see the detailed story in Ukraine’s Military TV’s report.
The enemy continues shelling of our positions and of civilian residents in the forefront villages. The report testifies that the enemy used calibers prohibited by Minsk agreements; they fired at our positions 17 times in the past 24 hours. Ukrainian military fired back: they gave firm response within the limits of allowed 13 times having managed to silence the enemy. The activity of hostile saboteur groups is still high. In particular, the Security Service of Ukraine informs of detaining the aggressor’s mercenary, coached by high-ranked Russian special service forces officers, who had to carry out a large scale diversion in one of the key railroad hubs of the ATO zone. He was arrested red-handed: as soon as the terrorist inspected the spot, chose the object and started to put the explosives into it, he was immediately caught in the act.
The Ukrainian de-miners have to work hard as well: the guys are getting the liberated territories of Luhansk region cleared of deadly scrap metal the enemy had pumped with. The sappers’ work is saving lives: neither military nor civilians will not hit the Russian “presents” here anymore. Please see a short video describing the sappers’ routine work, in the following story.
It would be wrong to think that we are not able to change this largely inacceptable situation. Together we have to assist our military: perhaps the state mostly supplies the Army, but sometimes necessary gear or equipment gets to the military too late. These are the cases when we can be of great help: within a separate charitable project titled «Rapid Response» People’s Project takes in the requests made by the military holding the frontline, accumulates funds and buys all the stuff they need. We urge you to join the initiative: sometimes even a couple of hryvnias make difference. Dear friends, the war will be raging until we have cleared our homeland from the aggressor, and each of us can make this moment a bit closer in time.
