The heroic defense of Donetsk airport – English video

2014/10/18 • War in the Donbas

How is it possible for the Ukrainian army, special forces, paratroopers, motorized infantry with the support of volunteers to defend the Donetsk airport for so long? Why are the defenders called “cyborgs” by their enemies? Espreso TV’s program “Front line stories” explores the defense of the Donetsk airport by Ukrainian forces.

    Great Video! I love the confidence of “Marshall” with an attitude like that he will never be defeated! This guy has bigger balls than the entire Russian Army!

      People like him are Ukraine, thus why the russians can never conquer it. Even when they occupied it in soviet russia times, they never conquered the people of Ukraine.

    “the Ukrainian army puts their dead in uniforms [of the terrorists] to hide their losses” ???

    What complete, ignorant, apes. No wonder russia has never had anything but a dictatorial criminal thug for a leader as those that he governs are an embarrassment to mankind.
    And most of those terrorists in the video look like criminal trash and/or propagandized dogs as they are clueless, lead by criminals that have no idea how to wage military actions. Proof they are at their finest against unarmed women and children, the criminal thugs that they are.
    And yes, like thugs, they want to fight you…until you fight back, then they want you to stop it…
    Keep up the good work Ukraine.

    For the russians out there some help:
