Russell Bentley aka ‘Texas’ comments on relevant political situation within the United States.
Our Q&A sessions are back. Leave your questions in the comments below and soon Texas will soon answer them in one of the upcoming episodes of “Donbass with Texas”.
Our comrade Texas talks about the end of elections in the USA and Trump’s unexpected victory.
Here is the second part of our report from the front positions of DPR People’s Militia in Zaytsevo village. Our filming crew spent a night duty together with the soldiers of the 3rd brigade on one of the positions.
Recently, the ‘Essence of Time’ crew spent 24 hours at the frontline, on the position of the 3rd Independent Motorized Brigade of DPR People’s Militia. This position is located in the north of Gorlovka, in Zaytsevo village.
In the end of September 2016, Sophie’s mom contacted “Essence of Time” unit in DPR (Donetsk People’s Republic) to ask for help for her daughter, 13-year old girl, who suffers from cerebral palsy, tachycardia, and tendon issues. The family constantly needs certain medicines, which are too costly for the family budget.
Sophie’s mom also said in the interview that the district, where the family lives has been constantly shelled by Ukrainian army. Some bombs exploded just near the family apartment. And as a result of such shelling the little girl had a heart attack.
Russell Bonner Bentley aka ‘Texas’ from the “Essence of Time” unit in DPR published a post about Sophie and her mom and their appeal for help. Pedro from UK has reacted and transferred the required amount of money for the little girl. The fund raised were used to buy the required medicines and a puzzle, because Sophie loves to do puzzles. This puzzle, which was bought on the money from Pedro, would be a Sophie’s present for the kind Englishman, when he comes to visit the girl in Donbass.
We have recently visited the shooting range of the Republican Federation of Tactical Shooters in DPR, where the contest between the divisions of DPR Interior Ministry Internal Troops took place.
A considerable number of foreign volunteer fighters from all the world are still coming to Donbass. They comprise by and large European communist and anti-fascists, following their noble intentions to fight Bandera Nazism and inspired by the example of interbrigades of Spanish Civil war of 1936–1939. However, it is often the case, that these people are coming having no military training, speaking not a word of Russian, and physically and morally unfit to the hardships and rigors of the everyday fighting. We have witnessed on multiple occasions volunteers who failed to find their place in DPR army leave. For this to happen less frequently, our comrade Texas has a set of recommendations to foreign volunteers.
In September DPR held a tank competition between the military divisions of Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. The tankers competed in speed, maneuverability and aiming accuracy. The participating crews were best in their republic. The battle was intense. Watch the detailed overview in this episode of “Donbass with Texas”.
We had a chance to see the battalion combat exercises of the DPR Army. Gun practice, counter-attacks by the infantry and armored forces, crossing water barriers, constructing a pontoon bridge – you will see all this and more in this episode of “Donbass with Texas”.
