Putin Calls for Negotiations for 'Statehood' for Southeast Ukraine

Volunteer fighters from the Crimea Sotnia (hundred) of the Dnepr battalion have reported that they were attacked while attempting to leave Ilovaisk.

Last night, the volunteer force posted grim images of the aftermath of their escape on their Facebook page (warning: graphic):

Look at the 'humanitarian corridor' Russia gave us. Hundreds of bodies, dozens captured.

Semyon Semyonchenko, the commander of the Donbass battalion, who is outside the town at the moment having been evacuated following injuries, reported on his Facebook page that "very complicated" negotiations were still underway with regards to the release of his volunteer fighters.

He did say, however, that 14 soldiers had managed to escape the encirclement during the night, but he declined to provide their names.

Our wounded were, as of yesterday, not in the 'DNR' but in the captivity of the 137 regiment of the Russian Federation 32nd Division and the 9th Tank Brigade. Their injuries are being treated, there has been no abuse.
