The Debaltseve encirclement of the Ukrainian army was completed in the early hours on January 30th. Inside are close to 9000 Ukrainian troops. This is twice the number of people captured in the encirclement or cauldron around Ilovaisk.
This encirclement was designed to be controlled from the outside. The Ukrainian soldiers can no longer get supplies, equipment, or troops in or out. Surrounding them is enough technical equipment including Grad and other launching systems to make fighting their way out suicide. It is literally a shooting gallery should the DNR and LNR decide it needs to end that way. They have not, and both republics are taking heavy losses because of it.
Ukraine has been attacking the towns, cities, and villages of the DNR and LNR with phosphorus bombs, missiles, and rockets. Ukraine tried to get both DNR and LNR listed as terrorist organizations. Ukrainian punisher battalions have decimated the populations of entire towns. They are guilty of mass rape and mass murder.
Currently Donetsk and surrounding towns are under the heaviest attack of the war. Kiev is making a desperate attempt to mount civilian casualties to the point where they may control negotiations. Intel is saying that the Ukrainian military has moved in a long range weapons system to the front called “Elbrus.” From the war front this SCUD has the range to hit Kiev.
