The Situation in Mariupol, Ukraine - July 24, 2014 | No Limit to Our Anger (c) V. M. Molotov

Excerpted from Igor Strelkov and Militia Briefings, July 24, 2014 | No Limit to Our Anger (c) VM Molotov

NoBC4U Note: This is an excerpt from the above mentioned article, which is quite long and detailed about the SITUATION in Novorossiya. Selected Portions I have focusing on the situation in the city of Mariupol.

July 24, 2014 - Report from a Local Resident of Mariupol

Gasoline A92 is 15 hryvnia 85 kopecks. Many companies and small factories only work to 50% of their capacity, many have sent their staff on unpaid vacation. The large factories are holding, but I know for a fact that people at Azovmash have been working an incomplete week since winter.

Vegetables on the market are cheap (after all, we are in the south), but, generally, food has become more expensive. A regular bus ticket is 4 hryvnia. I have not paid for communal services yet, but I know that electricity and hot water have risen in price. Electricity is now 30% more expensive.

The city is controlled by Battalions Azov and Dnepr. They are taking away people's cars; there are a lot of incidents of people disappearing, drunken shooting, raider takeovers [of businesses]. What is going is that they are completely terrorizing the populace. At the same time, they have painted fences, garbage urns, posts, and benches in the colours of the Ukrainian flag. They are constantly organizing some kinds of flashmobs on the topic of love for Ukraine. The men are terrified, waiting for mobilization. They are figuring out ways to escape to join the Militia or to dig cellars to wait everything out there before it is too late.


July 24, 2014 - The Situation in the Occupied Mariupol

Notes from a local resident with respect to the situation in the largest city of DPR [Donetsk People's Republic] that is occupied by the Nazis.

With respect to the mobilization: there are rumours that the quota for Mariupol was set at 5, ooo - 20,000 conscripts (depending on the source), and for the Volodarskiy district - 2,000. And here is the most interesting fact - All! All of my friends who had served in the army in the past are planning to flee to Russia or to join the Militia (as they are the first on the list to be mobilized). In other words, no one wants to fight for Ukraine.

I do not know the situation with the local Ukies who sympathize with the Junta (there are none among my close friends), but there have been no lineups in front of conscription centres.

The local metallurgy is almost finished. One of the plants has gone bankrupt. Two more are about to, due to the Ukie Nazi Guard [National Guard] destroying the Avdeevka Coke-chemical plant. It is not clear what will happen in the future. Without metallurgy, the city will not last long.

Ukies run around town, wave their flags, organize auto-caravans in support of Ukiestan, draw Ukie flags everywhere they find space.

However, normal, sane people are not asleep either - the Ukie flags painted on posts and other constructions are regularly sprayed with red paint (to demonstrate that the flag has been smeared with blood).

It is Remarkable That CERTAIN areas in the UKIE Painted Flags Remain smeared in "blood" for weeks - no one erases IE or repaints Them. This is an Indication That those Who Draw Them are not local, BUT That Were they sent in to sweep the area and paint their scribbles wherever they could.

Numerous people have "suddenly" disappeared in the city. There is a ton of "Help Us to Locate" and "He Left and Never Returned" ads posted around.

The city is surrounded with Ukie checkpoints that seem in no hurry to leave the city. Looks like Taruta is terrified. At the checkpoints, there are a lot of Ukie-speakers, but there are also some Russian-speakers present.

Lately, we have noticed a lot of vehicles bearing Kiev registration plates (the AA series). This is very strange.

A great number of very strange "refugees" have taken up residence in the city - they sunbathe at the beach, relax in cafes and clubs, drink, entertain themselves, shoot fireworks, enjoy themselves - not a shred of fear, no concern or anxiety . It is as if they are not refugees at all, and, yet, they keep saying that they are from Donetsk or Lugansk. But not everyone is like that. There are also a great many of those who arrived penniless. These refugees are assisted by volunteers, special organization and concerned residents.
