    VIDEO: In memory of the defenders of the Donetsk Airport

    January 20, 2016 - 

    "In memory of the heroic defenders of Donetsk Airport on January 17, 2015"



    Today, January 17, 2016 is exactly a year since the heroic defense of Donetsk Airport (“Monastery” position) by “Essence of Time” combat unit. On January 17, 2015, the “Monastery” position came under an hours-long attack by “Right Sector” militants and foreign mercenaries, who were incorporated into the 93-d mechanized brigade of the Ukrainian military forces. The attacking brigade was supported by tanks and artillery.

    The “Essence of Time” combat unit engaged the enemy. The unit had three men killed and fourteen men wounded in that fight, but the unit held its position and the enemy finally retreated.

    This movie tells the story of three heroes: Igor Yudin (“Bulgarin”), Evgeny Belyaev (“Belka”), Evgeny Krasnosheyn (“Pyatnitsa”), who laid down their lives in the struggle against fascism, in the struggle for freedom of Ukraine and people all over the world. These heroes were never subjugated by fascism and the love towards their home and the people was stronger than death.

    An independent “Essence of Time” task force, a part of the “Vostok” brigade, relieved the “Sparta” unit fighters in the “Monastery” position in the Donetsk airport in the course of a planned rotation on November 17, 2014.

    For two months, the “Essence of Time” unit countered the Ukrainian punitive forces’ tank breakthrough attempts towards the new terminal, suppressed enemy firing positions on the control tower and the new terminal, conducted reconnaissance operations, and participated in the control tower termination operation.

    In the days the Donbass militia stormed the airport, “Essence of Time” assisted the assault troops with covering fire, countered the attack on the “Monastery” position undertaken from the control tower and the runway.

    On January 17, 2015, the “Monastery” position came under an hours-long attack by “Right Sector” militants and foreign mercenaries. The “Essence of Time” unit engaged the enemy. “Essence of Time” had three men killed and fourteen men wounded in that fight, but the unit held its position. Ukrainian POWs had later admitted that among Ukrainian attackers, who had attacked the “Monastery” position, only three had survived.
