He noted that information on the number of Ukrainian captured near Ilovaisk is closed.
“Therefore, I cannot discuss it. Until the operation was completed, until the prisoners were taken,” said Ruban.
“Regarding the prisoners, this is also a catastrophe. The way the military operations are conducted, the impression is that the army is being prepared for surrender,” noted Ruban.
He stressed that there is already a problem with the power of prisoners. According to him, Dnipropetrovsk region is preparing a humanitarian train with food to feed Ukrainian prisoners in Donetsk.

Militants shot an elderly woman in the city of Yasinovataya right on the street last Saturday.

At the exit, she was met by a “DPR” patrol and demanded that the contents of the packages be shown.

UPD: 01/09/2014 "Yascho, padluk, sudi allowed, then otrimaєsh kopnya pіd ass", - the fighters of the 95th brigade write a letter to the Russian "tsar" Putin. VIDEO
Warriors of the ATO write a letter to the "Tsar" of Russia Vladimir Putin
Modern Cossacks decided to write a letter simply on two desks. Brave men happily changed into Cossack clothes.
The text of the appeal to the “tsar” was different from the legendary appeal of the Cossacks due to new historical realities. For example, there was even a postscript - "la la la la".
In the video - the soldiers of the 95th brigade.
Note that "The Cossacks write a letter to the Turkish Sultan" is a famous painting by the Russian artist Ilya Repin, which he created in two copies. The huge panel was begun in 1880 and completed only in 1891.
The plot for this picture was the famous letter of the Cossacks to the Turkish Sultan, written in 1676 as a response of the Cossacks of Zaporizhzhya to the demand of the Turkish Sultan Mehmed IV.
UPD: 01/09/2014 Russian Ruble Continues Record Fall
The dollar against the ruble at the opening of trading on Monday continued to grow and in the first minutes of the session again rewrote the historical maximum.
At 10.25 Moscow time, the ruble falls to 22 kopecks against the dollar - to 37.34 rubles per dollar. The Russian currency is cheaper by 24 kopecks to the euro - up to 49 rubles per dollar, reports NR-Ukraine.
Investors are reducing positions in ruble assets against the backdrop of the prospects for new sanctions against Russia, said analyst Promsvyazbank Alexei Egorov.
According to him, in the near future we should not expect the ruble to regain lost levels.
Since the middle of last week, the dollar rose by 1.35 rubles, the euro - more than a half ruble.
Interventions in the foreign exchange market in order to support the national currency rate from the Central Bank of the Russian Federation in the near future should not be expected either, warns Zerich Capital Management analyst Andrey Vernikov. “The intervention of the Bank of Russia at current levels is unlikely - a creeping devaluation of the ruble does not cause public protests,” explains Vernikov.
According to him, it is possible to play to increase the ruble when the dollar reaches the level of 38.5.
VTB Capital analysts previously noted that the Bank of Russia can start supporting the ruble when the dual currency basket reaches 44.4 rubles.
UPD: 01/09/2014 The FSB of Russia threatens the national security of Ukraine through Alfa Bank, - media
Servicemen in the ATO zone receive salaries on Alfa Bank cards, which is the daughter of the Russian Alfa Group.
“A scandalous fact from the point of view that military personnel should receive payment cards of state banks. State budget funds should be kept in Ukrainian state banks. The General Prosecutor’s Office, the National Bank of Ukraine should ask the Ministry of Defense to figure out how the state budget money Alfa Bank ", - the expert commented on the situation with Alfa Bank.
The threat to national security is evident not only in the banking sector. Under the guise of a corporate conflict, Energy Product LLC, controlled by Alpha Bank, seized and retained a gas concrete production plant in Nova Kakhovka, Kherson region.
The company is located in the immediate vicinity of the strategic facilities of the Kherson region - the head structure of the North Crimean canal, the Kakhovka hydroelectric station and the PES, through which up to 70% of the electricity is supplied to the occupied Crimea.
The security of the seized territory is provided by the security company Typhoon LLC, Lugansk (license AB No. 507671 dated 06/29/2010). Neither the police nor the officers of the executive service are allowed on the territory of the seized enterprise It is reliably known that constant propaganda work is carried out with the workers of the enterprise. Security officers have firearms and Molotov cocktails.
In fact, the enterprise for the production of aerated concrete in Nova Kakhovka, controlled by the Russian bank ALPHA BANK, can be used to capture strategic facilities. Perhaps it is for this purpose that the management of the enterprise provokes a social explosion, as a result of the contrived corporate conflict.
We will note that the chief of Regional Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Kherson region Fabrin M.V. He was dismissed on August 28, 2014 from his post under the article “Mismatch of his post”.
Recall that in the highest legislative body of the country has already been an attempt to investigate the criminal anti-Ukrainian activities of Alfa Bank. This is stated in the draft resolution No. 4740 "on the establishment of the Temporary Investigation Commission of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on the investigation of the circumstances of the enterprises of the Alfa Group consortium contrary to the interests of Ukraine". , Valery Golovko, Lesya Orobets. However, this investigation was blocked for unknown reasons. Reports news agency 112.UA.
