4 The DPR
The DPR forces captured a section of the Donetsk-Avdeevka-Konstantinovka highway, thus cutting off the Avdeevka’s garrison of the Ukrainian forces from one of the supply lines — the DPR’s People’s Militia’s press office reported on 1st of June. The deputy head of the People’s Militia of the DPR, Eduard Basurin, stated that the DPR forces destroyed 2 Ukrainian firing points near the village of Novosyolovka Vtoraya, located near Avdeevka. Avdeevka is a town with a population of about 30,000 people. It is located north of Donetsk. Avdeevka has the largest coke factory in Europe. During the conflict in Donbass, this town, controlled by the Ukrainian forces, was fortified into one of the main Ukrainian fortified areas. The Ukrainian forces are firing at Donetsk, Yasinovataya, Makeevka and the areas nearby, including the key transport routes, from the town of Avdeevka.
The servicemen of the 18th Battalion of the 35th Ukrainian Marine Brigade demand to not be sent under fire of the Russian artillery. According to them — their unit lost 80 servicemen in just 4 days. The Ukrainian Marines published such video message on Telegram. They stated that during the last 4 days they couldn’t take a single settlement. The Ukrainian Marines claim that they don’t refuse to defend Ukraine per se, but they don’t want to serve under the leadership of people who don’t value their lives. Earlier, ’The Washington Post’ reported about the complaints from the Ukrainian territorial defense servicemen about the lack of training and weapons. The Ukrainian mass media reported about several riots due to the sending of unprepared servicemen to the front line. The Ukrainian 101st and 115th brigades made such videos.
The DPR, the LPR, and the Kherson region may become a part of Russia in July. The head of the international committee of the Russian Parliament, and the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia, Leonid Slutsky, spoke about the possibility of holding a referendum about their joining to Russia. In his opinion, the referendums on those territories should be held at about the same time. Russia has enough resources to accept the new regions into its composition. Earlier, the joining of the LPR, the DPR, the Zaporozhye and the Kherson regions in Russia was predicted by a senator from the Crimea, Sergey Tsekov. In his opinion, such referendums can be held before the end of 2022. The deputy head of the Kherson region, Kirill Stremousov, recently announced that a referendum on joining Russia will be held in the Kherson region. Constantine Reztsov, specially for the ANNA NEWS
