Krasny Lyman – Ukrainian North Of Donbas

Jun 23rd, 2014 | By

As a result of airstrikes by Ukrainian Air Forces, the railway station, the railroad bed and the hospital where terrorists concentrated their forces were damaged; however, the structures can be easily restored. Due to coordinated and professional actions of the Ukrainian army there were no civilian casualties. Actually, the correct behavior of Ukrainian soldiers was confirmed even by local supporters of terrorists. Now the situation in the town is controlled; the damaged buildings are being repaired. As a consequence of the historical events, Krasny Lyman which essentially belongs to South Slobozhanshchina but in fact is the “North Gate of Donbas”, has reached a crisis point in understanding its self-identification.

The Crimean civil society activists arrested by FSB in May 2014 were engaged in peaceful public activity and are not involved with the organization “Right Sector”. The Committee on Aid to the Crimean Political Prisoners made a statement that the accusations of FSB against Crimean activists are absurd and affront to common sense. They also consider that “the real reason for their arrest is Russia’s reaction to their participation in the campaigns against the annexation of Crimea as well as the wish to intimidate all Crimean residents who don’t support separatists having seized the power on the peninsula”.

About recent civilian casualties in Ukraine

May 11th, 2014 | By

The only open question is: are there still any “neutral” citizens in Ukraine that would be persuaded by civilian victims to join terrorists’ cause? Can there still be any neutral citizens in the first place? I can’t definitely answer to that question, but I doubt there are.
