Day 12, Phase 3
The Popasna Salient
Fred cites an intercept published by Ukraine’s Defence Intelligence agency suggesting some of the 400 orcs transferred to western Donetsk region from Kharkiv region are “shocked” by the intensity of the fighting compared with their previous deployment.
The 4-min convo — replete with glaring transcription errors — is between a mobilized kid from Russia-occupied Donetsk region and his father.

The Russia-occupation force KIA count near Popasna is likely to balloon in the upcoming days.
