Ukraine: Destroyed armoured column abandoned in 'southern cauldron'

Ukraine, Snezhnoe
August 11, 2014 at 10:57 GMT +00:00 · Published

A destroyed armoured column was found abandoned in Snezhnoe, Donetsk Region on Monday. The destroyed vehicles include a BTR-70 armoured personnel carrier, a jeep and a large truck were left after what appears to have been fierce fighting.

Snezhnoe is part of the so-called southern cauldron in which Ukrainian forces have been trapped by militia groups forcing many soldiers to either surrender or attempt to cross the border to Russia.

The village lays along one of the most bitterly contested areas of the entire conflict running from Donetsk to the west through Makiivka, Shakhtersk, Torez, and Snezhnoe.
