Ukrainian Armed Forces in

Yet again a unit of the Ukrainian Armed Forces ran out of ammunition during a fierce firefight with anti-Fascist fighters as they tried, and failed, to surround the city of Donetsk on Saturday. Reports from the front line spell a story of misery, bad preparation, bad leadership and confusion.

In an interview with the Ukrainian publication Gordon, a soldier, who asks not to be named, fearing for his comrades, states: "You know, not long ago, I realized with horror that Russian "Channel One" tells more truth about the Ukrainian army's situation in the ATO zone than our media does".

He confirmed reports in the Russian media that Ukrainian army units had crucified a three-year-old boy in Slaviansk and claims only 20 per cent of the locals in Donbas welcome the Ukrainian Armed Forces while 80% want them to go away.

On Saturday the Ukrainian Armed Forces suffered heavy losses trying and failing to perform the encirclement of Donetsk. Admitting to many victims, eye witnesses state that the real figure is always far higher.

Meanwhile the humanitarian situation in the cities of Donetsk and Lugansk worsens. While Russia states it is ready to launch an operation in the area to help the civilians, the west procrastinates.
