Hushed up Defeat Of Ukrainian Army In Soledar after Ukrainians refused to retreat to avoid Slaughter – The Free

Soledar and surroundings are important to Russia because they are situated in the area of Donbass seized back by Ukraine from the ethnic Russian 2014 uprising after the Maidan Coup. The heavily fortified area was used by the Ukrainian ultra right to shell and bomb nearby rebel civilian areas for 8 years and until the present day, killing and maiming thousands.

The capture by Russian troops of one of the most important defense nodes of the Ukrainian grouping in the Donbas was completely ignored by Kiev officials. In the morning report of the Ukrainian General Staff on January 10, Soledar was not even mentioned.
