As at October 31, 2014, the Russian Federation continues to build up its forces in the territory of the Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts. At that we increasingly receive reports that militants have BM-30 “Smerch” multiple rocket launchers (one of the identified places of deployment is the warehouse of the “Dominion” Trade House in Donetsk; it is located 84.5 km away from the headquarters of Ukrainian military in Kramatorsk), BM-27 “Uragan” multiple rocket launcher systems (deployed to Horlivka, former railway station “Promyvochna”, 48 km away from Ukrainian emplacements). Our observers also detected movement of S-300 (NATO reporting name is SA-10 Grumble) long range surface-to-air missile systems (one of the identified places of deployment is the warehouse of the “Dominion” Trade House in Donetsk). If those S-300 systems are of S-300PMU-1 modification (NATO reporting name is SA-20 Gargoyle), they greatly complicates application of tactical aviation very difficult in the entire crisis region.

In the course of detection and identification of Russian units in the grouping of the invasion forces, we have acquired substantial evidence which reveals the composition of the Russian grouping concentrated along the border with, and in, Donbas, Ukraine.

Today a column of civilians tried to leave the ATO zone. People were tired of living hoping for a miracle. They dreamed of waking up in one of those fine summer days and see peace and quiet around them. No tanks, no armored personnel carriers, no other military equipment drive the roads of their villages and cities. They dreamed of no shelling day and night, no deaths of civilians around. So they waited, suffered, hoped that there would be peace in a day or two. Finally their patience wore thin when problems with food started to arise; there was even no water. They decided to go where there is no shooting, where people go to bed without fearing not to wake up in the morning. They went with the hope that they would live even if not better then at least the same way as it used to be before that nightmare had begun. But their dreams broke in the area of Yasynuvata. A crippling stroke by terrorists with mortars and MLRS BM-21 “Grad” did its dirty deed. Women and children died. Continue reading

This indicates two possible options of the preparation of attack: either towards Lysychansk or towards Horlivka. Continue reading
