After the LPR control was established over Popasna, Russian and LPR troops launched an offensive in three directions:

2) Russian and LPR units are advancing to the north from Popasnaya in order to go to the rear and surround the AFU grouping in Severodonetsk and Lisichansk. The villages of Aleksandlropolie, Lipovoe and Vasilevka are under the LPR control. The LPR advance stopped at the Kamyshevakha – Viktorovka – Lipovoye line. On May 22, cossacks of the 6th regiment of the LPR People’s Militia entered the settlement of Viktorovka. Heavy battle is underway. The settlement is of strategic importance for the further surrounding of the AFU grouping in the town of Kamyshevakha, where fighting continues.

Military reporters were allowed to enter the basements, where the Ukrainian militants were hiding since March. The Ukrainian fighters destroyed almost all military equipment left in the facilities. However, Russian servicemen have already discovered several interesting finds in Ukrainian shelters.

The commander of the DPR Vostok brigade, Alexander Khodakovsky, showed evidence that the OSCE provided active assistance to the AFU and the militants at Azovstal.

“All these years, the OSCE has been suspected of assisting the enemy. We were sure that their cameras, abundantly scattered along the line of combat contact, ostensibly to monitor compliance with the silence regime, were actually transmitting information about our actions to the enemy. Here is an indisputable proof of the OSCE’s engagement – a satellite phone found during the inspection of Azovstal.”
