…….— Nevertheless, the fleet stayed in Crimea. And it was exactly this circumstance that significantly helped to increase the army group in 2014?
— The fact that the Black Sea Fleet was there and stayed there became the foundation for the actions that followed after the 23rd of February of the last year. One may say that the Black Sea Fleet laid the foundation, the officers knew what is going on around them, where the Ukrainian units are located, the scenarios of the events were rehearsed on the maps. That is, the Black Sea Fleet accomplished its tasks — “the polite people” were brought it, the Crimean Supreme Council was captured between February 27 and 28.

— And in the end, “the polite people” — who are they?
— “The polite people” are the army spetsnaz.

— Can you lift the secrecy veil and tell us about the operation for blocking the Ukrainian units?
— I can cite the Col. General Volkov – “a brilliant concentration of the means and special forces in Crimea was performed with the use of camouflaging measures, which were unexpected for the Ukrainians, also there was a wide variety of measures on the advance misinformation of the enemy”.
The NATO intelligence missed everything it could and couldn’t in Crimea. The reasons have to do with strict radio silence regime during the period of concentrating the group and also with skilled use of the Sevastopol base, the means of military transport, which deployed the armed forces into Crimea…..

Message from militiaman with the call sign “Grom”:
It is yet calm in Yasinovataya, and at the forefront of punishers constantly provoke. When they shoot at our positions, they do not record it on video, and when guys try to answer them, then they record it and upload the videos to the Internet. We take out the dead and wounded every week. What for a truce can be there? Basically the Ukrainian military crush only with artillery. AFU destroy railway junctions. They are trying not to strike at the residential quarters at the moment, but I think it’s not for long.

LPR gave the OSCE a list of 157 people who they want to exchange. This is stated in the report of the organization about the situation in the conflict zone for March 12. SMM met with the deputy commander of Lugansk People’s Republic. The representative gave observers a list of 157 people who were captured by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. He said that the role of facilitating the exchange of detainees was assigned to the civil organization “Veterans of the war in Afghanistan,” and that it was suggested to exchange on a bridge at the settlement Schastye.

Borders of Donbass regions with special status will be determined in accordance with the September Minsk agreements. This was stated by the President of Ukraine Poroshenko to one of the Ukrainian TV channels.
“The boundaries of Donbass areas with special status will be determined in accordance with Minsk agreements of September 19. It was confirmed yesterday at a meeting of the National Security Council,”
- the president said.

Ukrainian law enforcers started coordinated attacks against the People’s Republic of Donetsk instead of chaotic ceasefire violations. This was said on March 13 at a briefing in the press center of Donetsk news agency by deputy commander of the DPR Ministry of Defense Corps Eduard Basurin.

“Ukrainian security forces conduct no longer harassing fire, but coordinated targeted shelling, accurate fire on our positions and settlements at a certain time and place with heavy systems of caliber 120 mm, 122 mm and 152 mm, which, as assured by Kiev, were withdrawn outside the 50-kilometer security zone from the line of contact, “
- Basurin said. According to him, they also use tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, anti-aircraft guns, automatic grenade launchers and small arms in shelling.

“We cannot infinitely write off such actions of Ukrainian troops for the uncontrollability of individual units of punitive battalions”,
- DCC said. He reminded that the Defense Ministry recorded 62 firings at DPR by the Ukrainian security services last day.
“The figures speak for themselves and are a good example of “steady”, as the Deputy Secretary of the National Security Council General Koval said yesterday, “Ukraine’s implementation of Minsk agreements “
- the representative of the military office summed up.

The parties agreed to move to the political stage of the settlement during a video conference of the Contact Group. This was stated by Vice-Speaker of the DPR People’s Council Denis Pushilin, “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” reports.

“Following the videoconference, one can say that there is progress. There is an understanding of how to proceed, how to verify the process of ceasefire and withdrawal of heavy weapons. But most importantly, we were able to negotiate on start of a political stage of the settlement, “
- Pushilin said.

“We have a hope for the continuation of the peace process,”
- the DPR envoy said.

Summary on reports from militias and residents of LPR:
In LPR situation is heating up every day, our positions and the settlements Bolotennoye, Sizoye, Nikolayevka, Vesyolenkoye, Valuiskoye and Pankivka were fired just in Stanitsa-Luganskaya direction 20 times. Enemy received reinforcements of a tank company and mortar battalion in the area of Kolesnikovka. In the same place AFN and AFU forces were engaged in a rifle battle. The enemy increases its force on Bakhmutka. Militia, in turn, leads the troops to the area of ​​numbered checkpoints. AFU now are at a disadvantage at the height of 175.9, since the 37th checkpoint was left, 31st and Zhelobok are under AFN and AFN have positions in Krimskoye. That isthe height , in fact, is in the operational encirclement by AFN, the sense of a return of the AFU to the height is only one, to bomb the cities. Militia, in turn, continues to create a large and powerful army. Recently, the LPR has prepared about five thousand men. And together with the DPR this number reaches about 9000.

US has not made a final decision on the refusal to supply Ukraine with arms. This was told by US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt during a briefing in Kiev.

Geoffrey R. Pyatt told about President Obama’s conversation with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during which US president allegedly abandoned the idea of ​​supplying weapons to Ukraine, according to “Ukrainian Truth”.

“We do not exclude our support in terms of defense and security sector of Ukraine. That is the message that the president of our country has taken any final decision in one direction or another, is untrue,”
- Pyatt said.

The gunner and commander of the gun D-30, LPR militiaman Igor said that the AFU continue to systematically violate the ceasefire. AFU constantly shell positions of Donbass national militia in the area of ​​ Bakhmutka route. Over the past few days AFU conducted several attacks on checkpoints 29 and 31, using small arms, mortars and tanks during the offensive.

DPR Ministry of Emergency Situations took out from the rubble 2 bodies of Ukrainian security officials today in the new terminal of Donetsk airport. This was reported to DAN by the DPR Ministry of Defense.

“During the work on clearing the debris at the Donetsk airport DPR emergency workers today took out 2 bodies of AFU soldiers,”
- the official said.

7 firings on positions of ATO forces were conducted in Shirokino today. It is reported by the defense headquarters of Mariupol. It is specified that the fire was conducted with small arms, rocket-propelled grenades and mortars. Also, the positions of the ATO forces are often fired by snipers. It is stated that there were no injuries.

Extraordinary Russian Emergencies Ministry convoy carrying humanitarian aid for the people of LPR crossed the border and headed to Lugansk on March 13. This was reported to LuganskInformTsentr by the LPR Center on recovery management (CRM).

According to the representative of the CRM, a convoy consists of 24 cars that will bring capital food, building materials and materials for sowing to the LPR.

In the afternoon of March 13 unloading of trucks from Russia began in Makeyevka.

US and Ukraine planned long joint military exercises of regular units the US Armed Forces and the National Guard soldiers in Yavorov. This was announced by the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov, “Ukrinform” writes.

- Avakov said. He said that Ukraine needs adoption of an appropriate resolution by the Verkhovna Rada to carry out such exercises. According to him, this issue will be resolved in parliament on Tuesday, March 17.

Ukrainian security forces respect the ceasefire on the most part of contact line, but hot spots still remain, head of the Donetsk People’s Republic Alexander Zakharchenko said in an interview with Donetsk news agency.

“The truce is observed for ninety percent – Zakharchenko said. – There are a few hot spots – these are Donetsk airport, town Shirokino and area of Gorlovka. That is where there is close direct confrontation, we can say trench one, no more than a hundred meters – there is shooting. It begins with small arms, then mortars are used. “

DPR head said that ceasefire violations are increasing with the arrival of fresh forces to the positions of Ukrainian security officials.
“I noticed that they shoot either after the rotation in the evening, or when there will be the two-week rotation: fresh divisions come in and three or four days of intensive shelling start. Then again, the truce is restored, “
- Zakharchenko said.

Message from military correspondent with the call sign “Steppe”:
Ukrainian forces attacked militia near Donetsk. AFU move up reserves and prepare for a new assault. Fighting broke out in the area of Donetsk airport with the use of mortars and grenade launchers in the afternoon (March 12). The high intensity of the fire was due to the fact that the AFU decided to recapture their lost positions and went on the offensive, trying to break through the militia defense. To avoid encirclement, the militia opened fire in response. Near Ozeryanovka, Gorlovka direction, punishers began an armed provocation, which resulted in a gunfight. Suburb of Gorlovka came under fire of enemy mortars. In the last few days Ukrainian army continues to move up forces to Avdeyevka and Karlovka, north-western outskirts of Donetsk. Armored vehicles, trucks with ammunition and provisions were driven there. Convoys of tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, and trucks with staff move towards Donetsk from Krasnoarmeysk in the night. The occupation authorities hastily evacuate from Dzerzhinsk, and AFU are entrenching around Artyomovsk at Soledar and Chasov Yar. All this does not correspond to peaceful intentions and does not seem like rotation.

Mariupol is actively inflated with troops of the junta, which are still not enough for thorough control over adjacent territories. The possibility of naval assault on the coast in order to cut off the roads leading to the city is a particular concern of Kiev. The blocking of the city was carried out in this very way in 1943, which led to the rapid retreat of Nazi troops in the face of their encirclement.

In spite of the mining of the coast and locating artillery units facing the sea, there are still not enough forces to protect the coast.

It is difficult to assume where the spring-summer showdown would exactly unfold. From the point of view of military science, one should let the enemy strike first and use up its available reserves. Although such a policy is justified from a military point of view, it still requires a certain image and political costs.

In any case, we can confidently assert that the freezing of the war conflict is not considered, as well as the giving up of Russia’s positions.

That release from under the power of Kiev fascist junta, which all residents of South-East of Ukraine hopefully dreamed of in spring of 2014, got a chance to come true once again after a year of bloody war.
