Ukraine War Update: Угли в огне первых, лягушачий

Fighting has been flared and become largely sustained around Donetsk.  The fighting includes small arms, mortars and tanks regularly.  However, both sides accuse the other of using heavy artillery.  To be honest, I am pretty sure both sides HAVE used heavy artillery.  The pullback has always been something a joke.

Hot spots have been in Maryinka, Krasnohorivka, Pisky, Avdiivka and Optyne.

Fighting has been reported around Gorlovka and near Shirokyne.

Zakharchenko has reiterated the DNR ought to include ALL of the former Oblast of Donetsk.

Randy pointed out an article on some of the fighters in the Donbass have started percolating back to Russia proper. At least one irregular was arrested in Moldova.  From what I gather, in uniform.  hmm.

Sadly, Ukraine's Rada blocked a bill protecting the rights of the LGBT community.  As a result, they are unlikely to get visa free travel in Europe.
