According to the commander of the battalion “Vostok” Alexander Khodakovsky, the situation in which the Ukrainian militants found themselves can be compared to hell. He noted that the allied forces of Russia and the People’s Militia were inflicting powerful artillery strikes on the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, from which the militants fired at the civilian population of Donetsk.
“What our artillery is doing is quite consistent with the definition of “inferno” and “hell,” Khodakovsky said on the air of the 60 Minutes program.
He stressed that in the course of hostilities, the allied forces achieved significant superiority over the enemy. Now the barrel load of the artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the region is not felt, the battalion commander said.
