Putin ignores #Minsk & #Assad the #SyriaCeasefire.
EU/US leaders absolutely know that but look away & hope to sit it out.
They r so wrong..

The main parallel between #Ukraine and #Syria is the self-deceit of the west to suppress its responsibility to act.

Russian militant with MANPADS in Horlivka

pic.twitter.com/aBVcRlEOgT via @GirkinGirkin

Russian Shelling's are still ongoing....

23:27 #Makiivka #Kalinino @PriestEtlau Still firing. Good audibility

Unusual large amount of reports of shelling from Donetsk area, though many on landing/launches inside Donetsk

23:25 #Makiivka @VasyaMakeevskiy salvos aside from #Spartak

Militants' attacks on UAF positions become more intense. Heavy weapons are used. - ATO HQ.
http://novosti.dn.ua/details/272225

23:35 #Hnutove-#Talakivka @pesekcot Fire is moved, like tow/#Sartana - can't see behind the hills. What a gunnery, didn't hear it since Aug

Impression that it's another "provocation show". Launching from inside occupied territories->landings in Makiivka,Yasinuvata, Mineral'ne etc

23:33 #Mariupol @Shimshen NE. It is heard even behind closed windows

Heavy landings, 15 km from the front.

23:26 ##Hnutove-#Talakivka area @pesekcot Artillery fires. Very strongly. Visually, explosions are 1 km away in front of us

Fighting along the entire front in #Donetsk oblast tonight!

23:50 #Donetsk @rjpthjuljytwr [vk] #Naberezhna: heard powerfully, loudly, heavily. And something flashes with it

23:50 #Bezymenne @GirkinGirkin 6 about SPGs within hearing, from #Trubnik: 2 times double salvos. #Zaichenko for sure, maybe

23:53 #Avdiivka @tiamat007 My neighbours went to the cellar [to hide]

23:51 #Yasynuvata #block102 @666_mancer [vk] windows vibrate, everything else is ok

23:54 #Avdiivka @LuftGanza Sounds like metal sheets falling from the 8th floor, 120mm at least, now ceased

23:49 #Donetsk [pro-RU source] @alex2015112 At #Pisky, now. Crazy explosion by its strength, what's that?

23:45 #Donetsk @huyoviynovoros artillery fires from the #cable plant

23:49 #Avdiivka @tiamat007 Seemingly, it started to land withing th city limits! Damn

23:49 #Avdiivka @owl_ok wow, such landings! And pretty nearby

23:49 #Mariupol sector @pesekcot One of checkpoints reports on small arms attack...

23:49 #Avdiivka @LuftGanza Windows vibrate

23:49 #Avdiivka @LuftGanza Wow, f*cking sh*t! Landings!

23:29 #Mariupol @dertienn #Hnutove direction: SPG, 4 salvos
23:44 ...well-heard in #Mariupol. [The shelling is] fading now

23:41 #Hnutove-#Talakivka @pesekcot on the radio: CP near #Kyrylivka? reports - they are under fire. Massive pounding, entire sector of ours
