The Ukrainian‬ TV channel One Plus One on 26 September ran at 19:30 Kyiv time what it called an exclusive correspondent’s report from inside and around Donetsk airport, which had withstood repeated attempted stormings by pro-Russian separatists since May 2014 and was currently partially controlled by pro-Russian forces.

The correspondent said that the airport had been virtually ruined by artillery and mortar fire. He said that servicemen of Ukraine‬‘s 3rd Kirovohrad special regiment and a company of the 93rd mechanized brigade were guarding the terminal buildings against continuing separatist attacks.

The video showed damaged terminal buildings, burnt-out airside vehicles, remnants of a civilian jet on the apron; Ukrainian servicemen having lunch inside a terminal, handling ordnance, dispensing ammunition, inspecting a damaged Russian tank, firing from firearms.

      Nope, zerobama is all about gays, mexicans, black gangsters attacking the police and being shot….and the weather.

      National Review Online has a good article about the korosan or whatever that fantasy is is all made up by zero. The link was on drudge.

          Ya know, the less he does domestically, the better it is for the USA.

            For a man who cloaked him self in the mantle of Lincoln and Martin Luther King he has been less than impressive even in areas that did not require Congressional approval.
            So much for healing the planet and pushing back the seas.

            zerobama probably is too busy blaming others for everything to heal anything. heck, he can barely stay married to his angry woman…..

    “ruined by artillery and mortar fire….separatists”

    That would make sense if the “separatists” were Ukrainians rather than russians and chechens. “Separatists” aren’t qualified to use crew served weapons, anti-air craft buk systems, etc.

    But on the bright side, good news for humans is that russians and chechens continue to be killed by the Ukrainians defending their country….in their country, Ukraine.

    IMO this will be second Ilovaisk, as they are encircled and they will get no help due to ‘ceasefire’
