URGENT Briefing From Igor Strelkov, June 19, 2014
Translated From Russian by Gleb Bazov
In the course of the night from 18th to 19th [of June], the enemy implemented a large-scale transfer of troops from the vicinity of Dolgenkoye village, where they have their stronghold and encampment, to the region of Krasniy Liman. Altogether, over 130 various items of military equipment were moved, including approximately 20 tanks and 40 APCs (“BMD,” “BMP” and “BTR”). The saboteur-intelligence group of the militia was able to take out one of the “BTR” APCs in the column by exploding a landmine. In addition, in the course of the night, the militia conducted strikes against the stronghold of the enemy in the Kombikormoviy neighbourhood.
Early in the morning on June 19, 2014, the enemy, with tanks and motorized infantry, and supported by two ground attack fighters Su-25, a division of self-propelled howitzers, a GRAD MLRS battery and several mortar batteries, dealt a massive blow against the positions of the Krasniy Liman detachment of militia located in the vicinity of Yampol settlement. The first attack was repelled, and an enemy tank was hit. At approximately 11:00 in the morning, the enemy resumed its attack, and despite losses, broke through the front. In the course of the battle, the enemy lost 4 “BMD” APCs and a large number of troops. However, using its colossal superiority in manpower and weaponry, the enemy was able to take Yampol and Zakhotnoye settlements, as well as the bridge across the river “Severniy Donets.” The Krasniy Liman detachment of militia suffered large losses in manpower and weaponry and was scattered. A detachment from Slavyansk that was sent to assist was also unable to stop the overwhelming forces of the enemy. Nevertheless, they fought an unequal battle in the settlement of Krivaya Luka.
As of 18:00 in the evening, the battle continues, the militia are attempting to break through the positions of the enemy toward Slavyansk.
Simultaneously with an attack against Yampol, large tank and motorized infantry forces of the enemy attacked the city of Seversk, where they were engaged in combat by the detachments of the militia commanded by Alexander Mozgovoi (the Lisichansk Battalion). The battle continues.
Attempting to assist the detachments fighting in the north, the Kramatorsk company (original – “rota”), undertook an attack against the enemy positions in the vicinity of the Markov settlement (to the east of Kramatorsk). In the course of the battle for control of the checkpoint, they were able to hit [and take out] one “BMP” APC and one “BTR” APC of the enemy. One of the militia fighters was lightly wounded. There have been no changes to positions around Slavyansk and Semyonovka.
In the morning, the detachments of the militia conducted mortar strikes against the Karachun Mount and against the positions of the enemy in the settlement of Vostochniy. In response, the enemy shot at Semyonovka with tanks, and, at 18:00, conducted artillery strikes with howitzers against the centre of Slavyansk. Multiple buildings hit and partially destroyed.
In conclusion, we can now confirm that the Ukrainian military has fulfilled the task, assigned by Poroshenko, of encircling the militia in the city of Slavyansk. Despite the courage and resilience of the militia fighters, they are unable to withstand in the open field massive attacks with tanks, artillery and aviation, particularly when the enemy has overwhelming superiority in manpower.
The militia and the people of the Donetsk People’s Republic call on the leadership of the Russian Federation to provide immediate aid to Novorossiya, in order to prevent the further genocide of the Russian population.

This Sunday, it’s the holy Feast-day of All Saints of Russia. Just saying…
Глас 8: Якоже плод красный Твоего спасительнаго сеяния,/ земля Российская приносит Ти, Господи, вся святыя, в той просиявшия./ Тех молитвами в мире глубоце// Церковь и страну нашу Богородицею соблюди, Многомилостиве.
Thanks for these translations. Much clearer than I got with the Yandex.

Three videos, with transcript of the 4 min. one. It hates Russians, that’s clear. Besides the journalists, one wonders what other “jobs” it’s done for its zionazi handlers.
@ Gleb Bazov,
A big thumbs up for making this accessible to all of us who’re not native [Russian] speakers. Thank you.
So, Pod’s ‘peace plan’ was nothing more than verbal hazing…?

Hey guys have you seen this article by lifenews (with videos) of the decimation of entire Right Sector batalion by LNR forces?
Only 8 Right Sector thugs survived; the sure aren’t being the cocky anymore, they captured thugs sure look scared and obedient little buttlickers after the LNR guy give then a few minor bloody noses (to help clear up their memory). The video also show a dying Right Sector thug who’s legs are destroyed; the LNR guy tries to give him water.
Life news claims that the batalion was 100-300 men all of whom were killed except for the 8 taken prisoner.
Use Yandex to translate this article amd enjoy tge satisfying videos of see these Right Sector NAZI scum crap their pants.
Aaand Putin has finally betrayed everyone by agreeing to Poroshenko’s peace plan.

I am sorry to post this comment here because it might seem unrelated to the ‘matters at hand” in Ukraine & the Motherland. I strongly feel that there is a dangerous blind spot in many of us especially in our Geo-politic views. I wish to introduce 2 ideas/statements to you.
– Geo-politics is a tool whose purpose is one thing – the Perpetuation of the Drug Trade.
– The Prime Geo-Politic is the Drug trade.”
I want you at some point to try to integrate these 2 statements with what is happening in the Ukraine.
Are the techniques of crisis, chaos creation, misdirection, disinformation, CRY WOLF in order to keep the world unbalanced, false Nuclear fears, etc – Are they the strategy of the Prime Geo-Politic?
By the way how is the heroin trade in Ukraine and Russia? It is booming in Vermont and probably all of the USA.
I Hope you find some helpful points. Keep up the great work, Saker.
Thanks for the update, how sad it may be.
Something is happening: An Novorossiyan armored column flying the flag of Crimea (among others) made a 87 km trek across the Lugansk Republic early this morning.
This is what I counted:
4 × T-64 tanks
5 × BTR-80 APCs
7 × Ural trucks, one pulling an anti-aircraft gun
5 × Kamaz trucks
They were first spotted in Krasnodon in the west near the Russian border. Two YouTube videos show them in Lugansk. One video shows them passing Alchevsk on a route to Artemivsk or Slavyanks.
5 am: Krasnodon https://youtu.be/6Lg_9EvDKM8
6 am: Luhansk https://youtu.be/tPcPqjEq67A
6 am: Luhansk https://youtu.be/4yObYghms10
7 am: Alchevsk https://youtu.be/r8cSPXEoyQI
It is feasible that these tanks came from Crimea through Russia. @djp3tros of [email protected] is sure of that, but he sees Little Green Russians everywhere.
I think, if you want carry on what you are doing now, managing the blog, sooner or later you will arrive to conclusion that you MUST create an English e-newspaper.
This newspaper would have many people working on it.
In the beginning all people would be volunteers…etc
Here is one example
E-newspaper from Croatia [ there is no printed edition ] called advance.hr
This newspaper is in opposition to Unipolar world.
Some articles you can read for free and the other you need subscription.
This newspaper have a big disadvantage and it is a small market.
In the case that you [ we ] create an online newspaper it would cover very large audience, English speaking world.
Here is the link on advance.hr
so even if one does not understand Croatian can see how it works.
When advance.hr could do it
why cannot [you] we do it?
10 minutes ago I wrote about Croatian e-newspaper advance.hr
By mistake i wrongly described it as paper which support UNIPOLAR world.
It was from my side abig error, the newspaper support opposite of it i.e. MULTIPOLAR world order.
I made a French translation from the video subtitled in German (on the vision of Sergei Glazjev), economic consultant of Putin.
I’m just not sure about the exact French spelling of city names.
Sergei Glazjev, conseiller économique du Président Vladimir Putine, extrait de son discours le 10 juin 2014.

Bleating attracts the wolfpack.
I’m german and what I don’t understand is, why doesn’t Russia use the strength from its programmers, who belong to the best of the world, to just shut the US down – turn their mainswitch to off?
Good success for Russia to bring those fascists down.
Godspeed to the freedom fighters.
I post my comment again since I don’t know why Pres. Putin doesn’t play this absolute trump card?
Please read this very slowly to understand that this will mean the end of all the troubles: The Russians have the very best sheets in their hands, one can imagine. They could, for example, conclude a peace treaty with Germany, on the basis of the status quo. Since Willy Brandt all Chancellor guarantee the Polish western border, the Russians could keep Königsberg and the northern East Prussia. The Russians don’t make any claims, they only explain formally the Second World War to be ended. China as a second victorious power follows that, for them it is only a friendly gesture that costs absolute nothing. All this raises the Western powers in a tight spot, they must renounce their right of occupation or reveal itself as an axis of evil. The enemy states clause of the UN would become obsolete also and should be deleted.
Another option would be to reveal what the Red Army has found in the adoption of the concentration camp Auschwitz. Since especially in Merkel-Germany constantly false figures and stories are spread in this way would have a clarity thanks confirmed documents arise. After all revisionists could wrap, with even Norman Finkelstein and his book “The Holocaust Industry” seen amply confirmed. At most the Israeli friends and the gentlemen of the Jewish Claims Conference would be after a little peeved – and the Central Council of Jews extremely indignant.
Post it in parts, and label them properly. (Part I, Part II, etc.)
re: “Are the techniques of crisis, chaos creation, misdirection, disinformation, CRY WOLF in order to keep the world unbalanced, false Nuclear fears, etc – Are they the strategy of the Prime Geo-Politic?”
“The public functionaries are not, as is commonly believed, the guardians of order. Order, which is harmony, doesn’t need guardians, precisely because it is order. That which needs guardians is disorder and a disorder which is scandalous, shameful, and humiliating to those of us who weren’t born as slaves, a disorder which reigns over the political and social life of humanity.
“To maintain disorder, that is, to maintain political and social inequality, to maintain the privileges of the ruling class and the submission of the rules, that is why governments, laws, policemen, soldiers, jailers, judges, hangmen, and the whole mod of high and petty functionaries who suck the energies of the humble people are needed. These functionaries don’t exist to protect humanity, but to maintain its submission, to keep it enslaved for the benefit of those who have contribed to retain the land and the factories for themselves up to this moment.”
–Ricardo Flores Magon
Post your long comment in parts, and label them properly. (Part I, Part II, etc.)
Also, you may wish to put it on vineyardsaker.fr too.
A lot of readers would be interested in videos of important Russians discussing things with subtitles. Marina Petrova has a number of folks such as Pushkov or Glazyev. A recent example is Pushkov saying “Russia needs a new policy towards the Ukraine”:
Perhaps others can suggest good sources.
Divide it into three roughly-equal parts, then submit each part separately, Part One, Part Two, etc. But if it’s in French, why not submit it also to French Saker, http://www.vineyardsaker.fr/ It’s a beautiful site!

split it inot three parts?
This is exactly as Kitson of the British Special Air Service described “Low Intensity Operations” whereby all actions are “just below” the threshold of a full-blown war yet move “in the right direction” and if only by attrition.
Must do better.
