Lack of ammunition among the militants of the national battalion “Azov” *, who settled on plant “Azovstal” gave an advantage to the army of the Donetsk People’s Republic, said a fighter of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the DPR, a well-known military blogger nicknamed admin.
According to him, the nationalists were forced to conduct exclusively shooting battles and stopped responding to artillery strikes.
“They simply stopped responding with artillery, there were only rifle battles with them, and the full advantage – in artillery, aviation – was on our side,” the Admin of RIA Novosti explained.
He stressed that the national battalions ran out of ammunition at the end of March, immediately after the blockade of Mariupol. Naturally, there was no longer any talk of replenishing weapons.
