Donetsk Airport is our Brest Fortress, - Biryukov. VIDEO
Donetsk airport can be kept for a long time, given the morale of its defenders and the nature of the attacks of the militants, however, if there is an order, the guys will leave it.
According to Espreso.TV, the presidential adviser and assistant defense minister for clothing support of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Yuri Biryukov, said on the air. “It was a little quieter on Sunday, instead of 5-6 assault attempts, there were only two. Just when I was there. Yesterday there were 5 assault attempts, today 4, but it was harder because the heavy artillery was working on the buildings,” he said. Biryukov noted that at the Donetsk airport he was struck by two things: “the first is the morale of our fighters. I thought it would be worse, but they saw how they behave there. And what struck us from a bad point of view is how stubborn they die "separatists. I don’t know the reasons, they are under drugs, I don’t understand why a person can go and die in full growth."
According to him, rumors are circulating that militant free battalions are sending off to storm the airport. “Why do they do this 4-5 times a day, and then they call and ask for a ceasefire in order to pick up the bodies. There are rumors that these are DPR penal battalions, they are sent to the airport to be washed off with blood,” the presidential adviser said. The Advisor to the President confirmed that the Minsk agreement did indeed stipulate a line on the border of fire and the Donetsk airport crossed to the other side of this line. “The agreements were sure that there was a line of demarcation of fire, it was really the airport that went to the other side, and we had to occupy other territories, but the terms of all these peace agreements were violated immediately and accordingly it will be that we free the airport, and they free those swap territories themselves are extremely difficult, "he said.
Biryukov noted that the airport is a symbol of heroism, professionalism and courage of the Ukrainian army, so no one will leave him so easily, but if the order is from above, the guys will go. "The situation is difficult - for us it is a symbol, a point where many of our boys died and get out ... How to explain these guys what they need to get out. This is our territory, so exchanging our territories for our territories does not fit our minds. However, if necessary, we will leave him, ”he said and added that it was there, at the Donetsk airport, that“ what the Ukrainian army is ”was shown. The assistant minister of defense is convinced that Ukrainian soldiers will be able to keep the airport for a long time, although he said that "there are no catacombs, exits to Avdeevka, underground cellars with supplies," and no one is hiding there especially.
“It seemed to me that if the separatists didn’t start using an extraordinarily large coliburn, then this object can be maintained for a long time. Plus, the morale of the paratroopers, then for me guys, is a symbol. This is our Ukrainian Brest fortress. So long, not one nobody held the object during the ATO, ”he stressed.
