"Several columns of vehicles and armored vehicles went south through Debaltseve, in the direction of the villages of Snizhne and Krasniy Luch. They consist of 24 tanks, 35 armored combat vehicles, and about 25 [other] vehicles," the report says.

"The militants also sent an armored group to Maiorsk. It consists of six tanks, 11 armored combat vehicles, and it is supported by anti-tank artillery battery, including six 100mm caliber Rapira anti-tank guns," the report reads.

Moreover, according to the report, in Horlivka the local militants are vigorously spreading rumors that the Ukrainian armed forces are actively preparing to attack in retaliation for the loss of Debaltseve.

As UNIAN reported earlier, according to the Information Resistance group, widespread looting is continuing in Debaltseve.

In addition, it is not only the militants that are engaged in looting in Debaltseve, but also locals, who are robbing the houses of their neighbors, the group claims.
