This was not a planned exit. Crushed and shredded into pieces, they had seen how their comrades died,” this is how Zubov describes the soldiers who exited Debaltseve.

He said Ukrainian artillery gave them very little support, the flanks were not covered. “They (commandment) rounded up (thousands of) people in the trap. They were shot point blank. I don’t know if it was because of uselessness of the commandment and what sort of maps they have there, and in whose interest this all was,” Zubov says.

The 35-year-old sergeant sits in the Kyiv Post office, his fists clenched, his eyes traveling from one point on the wall to the other as he speaks. He popped over just before his train back to the front lines in the east.
