"There has been no artillery shelling in Marinka since morning. It's quiet. Information on the enemy's heavy losses is confirmed. They acknowledged 15 killed mercenaries and dozens of wounded. Real losses, by all accounts, are much higher. Well done, the 28th brigade and artillery.

"However, there is no reasonable basis for celebration. The army worked well - good job. If the enemy hits Marinka again, this means they have decided to kick Ukrainians away from Donetsk. This also means there will be assaults all along the Donetsk front line and at vulnerable points in other sectors.

"Marinka is not the [Donetsk] airport nor Debaltseve, it is more comfortable to defend, and tactical environment is more convenient. The enemy loses its surprise effect here.

"Let's follow the events. Judged by reaction in social media, the enemy is daunted by the repulse," Butusov wrote.
