About Truce



Mr. Strelkov clarified about the "truce" with the junta, effectively disavowing the yesterday's announcement of Mr. Borodai about the willingness to accept a cease-fire for about 2-3 days.

Strelkov on the well-known forum:
The military action continues on the whole front. The "Boeing" crash site remains in the deep rear of the DPR militia and no "humanitarian cease-fires" or "corridors" are necessary for an objective investigation of the reasons of this tragedy – the commission can freely come there and study the crash site. Nobody will hinder them. But stopping military action against the surrounded enemy group is not expedient.


Certainly, the Americans are now pressuring http://www.echo.msk.ru/news/1362004-echo.html (in Russian) the Russian Federation in order to establish the regime of cease fire and to prevent the undoing of the surrounded group, but I hope that in this the military leadership of the DPR won't bend and will continue to hammer the surrounded junta military. There is still a few days of work left there.

Statement of junta losses for July 9–15


Essence: 1600 dead and 4723 wounded for the period of July 9-15. The text says that there is no connection with the detachments that were present in the airport.
Lost tanks: 35
Lost armored vehicles (IFV, APC): 96
Lost artillery: 38
Lost planes: 7
Lost helicopters: 2
Lost automobiles: 104

Militant losses:
Killed: 48
Wounded: 64
Tanks: 2
IFV, APC: N/A
artillery: 5
automobiles: 8

Civilians:
killed: 496
wounded: 762


In principle, the numbers quite match the events that occurred during that period in Donbass.
I can also suppose that a part of the equipment listed wasn't destroyed, but either broke or was captured by the militia fighters.
