Russia’s only unit of Terminator tank support vehicles believed to be in Donbass: UK MoD

The UK Defense Ministry believes that BMP-T Terminator tank support vehicles, Russia’s only operating company, may be stationed in Severodonetsk in eastern Donbass, Ukraine.

The ministry said in a tweet that the use of these vehicles was part of an attack by an organization called the Central Command (CGF) because it only contains them. “The CGF has suffered heavy losses in the past when it failed to pass through East Kiev in the first phase of the invasion,” the ministry’s latest daily intelligence update said.

“Severodonetsk region is one of Russia’s immediate tactical priorities. However, with a maximum of ten terminators stationed, they are unlikely to have a significant impact on the campaign,” it added.

Ukraine rejects ceasefire as Russia intensifies efforts for Donbass

Ukraine has rejected a ceasefire or concessions to Moscow as Russia intensified its offensive in the eastern Donbass region and cut off gas supplies to Finland.

Russia has been conducting a major offensive in Luhansk, one of the two provinces in Donbass, after ending several weeks of protests by past Ukrainian militants in the strategic southeastern city of Mariupol.

Prior to the February 24 invasion, pro-Russian separatists were already in control of Luhansk and the neighboring Donetsk province, but Moscow wants to seize the last Ukrainian-held territory in Donbass.

“The situation in Donbass is very difficult,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky said in his nightly speech. He said the Russian army had tried to attack the cities of Sloviansk and Siverodonetsk, but Ukrainian forces had blocked their advance.

Earlier, Zelenskiy told local television that while the fighting was bloody, it could only end through diplomacy and that the Russian occupation of Ukraine was temporary.

Zelenskyy adviser Mykhailo Podolyak rejected the ceasefire agreement and said he would not accept any agreement with Moscow to leave the Kyiv territory. He said the offer of concessions would cause a setback for Ukraine because Russia would strike hard after any breakdown in the fighting.

“The war will not end (after concessions).

“They will launch a new attack, even more bloody and large-scale.”
