Russia advances in southern Ukraine and prepares the assault of Odessa

Nikolay Mitzykof pursues war. He had to flee in February 2015 of his city, Vuhlehirsk, when he began to arcce the bloody battle around neighboring Debaltseve, which with the passage of the weeks would become one of the most epic war disputes of the first two years of War in the Donbore region. "The bombings (of the Russian separatist forces) destroyed half the city," he recalls.

When it was installed in the population of Dachne, 30 kilometers from Odessa and more than 800 from its native town, he thought that those images were a matter of the past. Until Tuesday three missiles impacted in the new residence of him destroying almost a dozen housing.

"It's very unpleasant to see you again at war, I saw dead with my eyes and I would not like to repeat that experience," he says.

"It was like a rocket storm," the Mayor Ruland Sich was secondant by taking advantage of the apparent calm he has returned to the town.

A few minutes before, while the rescue teams were still cleaning from debris the housing area achieved by one of the rockets, panic had cubed when the anti-aircraft alarms sounded.

"Out of here, fast, run, run!", I shouted one of the firefighters before the ulular of the speakers.

The attack on Thursday was aimed at a nearby military base.

"He killed two people: a soldier and a neighbor who died of a heart attack. Four other soldiers were injured," says Janna Lisak, secretary of the local town hall.

One of those present tries not to give as many details to the journalists, but Janna has not yet clouded the logic.

"But what do you say? If the Russians have bombed us it is because they know perfectly where the military base is," he replicates him.

The lucidity of women is not a generalized behavior. Another residents attacks cries against the informants and accuses them of being the cause of war. "Everything is for your fault!" He cries out next to one of the housing hidden by the shrapnel.

The bombing of Dachne was just an incident more in the long list of attacks that have been lavished in the last hours on the South Front of Ukraine, where Russian troops advance from Crimea with the intention of capturing all the ports of the country at sea Black and the adjacent Azov Sea.

Moscow's army claims to have captured the city of Kherson, but his mayor, Igor Kolykhaiev, said the villa was still resisting. The head of the municipality disseminated a video in which it alerted on the critical situation within the urban nucleus and requested that a "corridor" be established to "evacuate wounded and dead, and the supply of medicines and food or the city will perish ".

Numerous recordings arrived from that enclave show the Russian vehicles and uniformed marching on foot through its streets.

"I want to assure you that the mayor has not signed the surrender, we continue fighting," said Andriy Biletsky, a volunteer present in the city to a local channel.

Other images from the village show an individual waving two Ukrainian flags in front of a row of Russian tanks repeating the challenging gestures that is leading up the unarmed civilian population in front of the occupants.

With about 300,000 inhabitants and a strategic situation on the Dnieper River, La Pugna for Mrson has become one of the keys to the Russian offensive towards Odessa, the main coastal city of Ukraine. The uniformed of Moscow also try to crush Mariupol's resistance, in the Azov sea area.

Hours after the attack on Dachne, another missile impacted in the vicinity of Odessa airport, while two Russian frigates approached their coasts.

The major Staff of the Ukrainian army spread a statement in which he noticed that Russians "prepare for a naval landing" in the District of Odesa and who have already deployed several "naval groups" with this intention.

The march towards Odessa has led the military loyal to Vladimir Putin to try the assault of the last great population that serves as an anteroom to the territory of the so-called Pearl of the Black Sea, Mykolaiv, where local authorities reported on the destruction of a large column of Armored and Russian vehicles.

Russian forces have also approached the Zaporiyia nuclear power plant, Sita north of Mrsón, one of the largest in the world, where a Ukrainian contingent is available to resist, delineating an incalculable risk overview.

A wide number of neighborhood neighbors have gathered in front of the entrance to the venue, crossing trucks on the pavement, to prevent the passage of Russian soldiers.

"We have raised a (human) wall at the entrance of the city, blocking the occupants. Thousands of people came to show that they do not need to be saved, who are in their country and on their land," said Mayor, Dmitry Orlov.

A week since the beginning of the Russian invasion are many Ukrainians who have not yet recovered from the commotion that has caused an assault that very few believed probable by "peeled", an expression of Russian Sych, 24 years old.

The young woman, married to a Canadian and with a one-year-old son, is "trapped" in Dachne. "We did not want to believe it because it seemed crazy, but here is here," she says.

"Here we do not have shelters because it is a swampy area where it can not be excavated," adds Ruland Sich.

Day after day, the traditional physiognomy of Odessa and the towns of its environment begins to blur and be supplanted by the usual stamps of the war conflicts. Cement barriers and armored movement are multiplied by almost deserted roads. Theaters such as Dachne's, who used to welcome artistic groups from countries such as Bulgaria or Belarus, exercise in these days of food deposit and supplies for uniformed local.

The civil administration follows the same dynamic. Normality is diluted at times. In Odessa, for example, Kiev has appointed as a new governor of the square to a controversial Colonel whose unity was accused by Amnesty International to commit notable abuse during the first part of the conflict, in 2014, when Kiev faced the separatist militias supported by Moscow in the Donbore region.

War usually emphasizes raciocinium by the most irrational emotions. That's happening, "Iopo a little," in southern Ukraine, as the Russian army approaches Odessa. The last day Two local residents of this metropolis died being riddled in a monitored control by uniformed dominated by the psychosis of the "quintacolumnists", according to local media.

Conflagrations also force human beings to take extreme determinations. Nikolay Mitzykof, Dhachne's neighbor from Donbras still maintains that the culprit of this situation is none other than Mijail Gorbachev, "for letting the Soviet Union disappear. If the Soviet Union continued to exist, we would not be like this." He barely hides his nostalgia for the communist bloc when Moscow was the center of the power of that federation. Which does not prevent it from being thinking about enrolling to defend your home. "I can not keep fleeing, what am I going to do? They are the Russians who come to kill me," he says.
