Google Earth shows how Russians crossed border to create Ilovaisk massacre

Google Earth shows how Russians crossed border to create Ilovaisk massacre

In August Ukrainian volunteer battalions were ordered to encircle Donetsk from the South. At Ilovaisk they met fierce resistance and they were never able to really take it.
As can be seen there is a natural barrier near Novyi Svit in the form of an artificial lake. After weeks of uncertainty they were offered a ‘safe corridor’ back so they could retreat. They had to take the route south of Novyi Svit again.
But there they were slaughtered.
Now with updated satellite images on Google Earth we can reconstruct how. It was done by a Russian invasion army that crossed the border near Berestove.
Here is that border crossing on July 16th:

Here is that crossing on the Sept 14th map:

To understand the scale of this we can zoom in:

We can see a ‘single track’ (which might even have been used by several vehicles) and very broad ‘multiple tracks’.
My rough estimate would be that these tracks have been used by 50 to 100 vehicles if not more.
Now we can trace the tracks and see where they come from and go to:

First of all we can see this on the Russian side:

In the forward position we can still see quite some vehicles:

There are trucks and likely GRAD launchers parked there. But also camouflaged positions and tents.
A little bit south of this two large vehicles can be seen. Although it can not be determined what it exactly is, I suspect these to be BUK air defense systems. Or else some other type of air defense.

This area shows the July 16th situation:

And this sept 14th:

Now there are a lot of tracks that lead into the trees. That indicates this has been a camping site.
There are more such camping areas, as well as used firing positions for artillery and trenches.
This whole area is a forward position of the army with a HUGE temporary campsite. No vehicles can be seen anymore in this camp.
When we follow the tracks into Ukraine this is the image we get:

There is ONE BIG trail crossing the border and then it splits into several smaller ones, leading to an area where also many firing positions can be seen as well as camp sites.
This is an example:

Here are dugin positions, often used for MSTA heavy self-propelled artillery:

The layout of the camp/firing positions:

Looking more North-East the tracks lead to this:

There is an area (yellow circle) with several firing positions. The blue area is the KNOWN killing zone of Ukrainian units. Remember the corpse hanging on the electricity line? That was THERE…
The light blue area shows mortar impacts. It looks like some Russian units have tried to advance there and received some counter fire.
So this can be understood like this:

The blue line shows how the Ukrainian units were retreating. To get there they had already been fired on with artillery many times.
When they arrived at this position, they were attacked from the side and from behind by an overwhelming Russian force (Yellow arrow).
The small yellow arrow indicates that attacks via that side must also have been taken place, but it can not be seen, because that road is a hard road and the September satellite image ends there.
Just North of the yellow circle next to the road, three wrecks and burned areas can be seen:

These are the first visible victims on the satellite image.
Here is a video showing quite some more.
Here is a map of all tracks and positions:

More to the south also units had been destroyed, since there is a video showing these (small blue area) . But that’s also the end of the satellite image, so we can not see exactly how and where yet.
So THAT’S how Russia invaded Ukraine and destroyed the volunteer battalions who had been guaranteed a save passage out…

En el contexto del acuerdo de Minsk sigue empeorando enfrentamientos entre milicias. Las pandillas que toman los acuerdos de paz, entran en un enfrentamiento feroz con los duros opositores que no aceptaron los areglos por el grupo de contacto RPD y RPL. Así, como resultado del conflicto en la noche 20 y 21 de septiembre uno de los grupos militantes con fuego destruyó 2 autos con personal de otros grupo.
Además, ayer por la noche (23 de septiembre 24) como resultado de las guerras internas fueron asesinados 2 líder de las milicias Donetsk: Ichitovkin Leonid Ivanovich nació en 1953 y Bukhantsev Igor Sergeevich nació en 1986. Los datos precisos acerca de lo que les causó a “muerte súbita” no tenemos , pero de acuerdo a fuentes de Donetsk, el incidente se produjo como resultado de las negociaciones fallidas entre las dos facciones en guerra.
Hoy, 24 de septiembre, las pandillas se destacó de nuevo. En la primera mitad del día del mortero de 120 mm uno de los grupos terroristas cubierto 3 coches: 2 coches conjunto de monitoreo de radio y la dirección supresión encontrar RP-377LA “Lorandin”, tambien 1 coche interferencia automatización de la estación “residente” P-330ZH, “Zhitel” que, por cierto, piezas utilizadas activamente Fuerzas Armadas RF. El incidente se produjo cerca de la ciudad del Petrovsky lestnichestva de Donetsk. Por cierto, hace 2 días, se informó de otro detalle interesante es que después de la detección de sabotaje para socavar los 4 sistemas de artillería, sobre los que hemos escrito antes, los grupos militantes chechenos llegaron a la desarticulación del grupo de cosacos-terroristas y organizaron unas puñaladas. Información sobre el resultado de un “partido amistoso” no tenemos.
A pesar de la tregua declarada, algunos grupos terroristas siguen disparando no sólo las posiciones de las tropas ucranianas y barrios civiles tambien. Los terroristas no se cumplen no sólo las condiciones de retirada de las armas pesadas de la línea de contacto, pero también llevaron a cabo el ataque a la posición de las fuerzas ucranianas. Así que hoy en el área de 13:00 militantes de los separatistas locales comenzó el primer asalto en la zona de Nikishin (región de Donetsk). Ataque fue llevado a cabo por la infantería en una cantidad de alrededor de 100 combatientes.Ataque se atragantó, los atacantes sufrieron grandes pérdidas. Entre los militares de Ucrania y no hubo víctimas.
