"This morning, several dozen of the Airborne fighters went to help the Donetsk airport. Thick fog, visibility about 20-30 meters. It is difficult to explain to civilians who have not been at the front line, but this fog is deadly to the mind and to the people. Especially when you try a stealth approach, when you know that you could be killed at any moment. The nerves get shot to hell quickly.
But the situation in the DAP (Donetsk airport - ed.) is even worse - you have to move on flat concrete flab, without a guiding point. And they missed, they missed by 800 meters, went a little to the left. And got straight to the concentration of militants. There was a battle. There were casualties. Eight people were taken prisoners. Perhaps it has not been officially voiced, but hardly anyone will deny it now - there are names, there are documents.
On the one hand, this is a war, god damn it. And you could just breathe out, just get upset. And continue to help, continue to quietly do your job," Biriukov wrote.
