All the support mentioned is already there.
Why is Kiev Junta calling August 18th as the day when rebels will leave Donetsk? It is because the situation has gotten bad for Junta forces. Kiev
Junta will offer cease fire and try to look good but DPR will reject it now as their cease fire was rejected a week ago.
2-3 broken Brigades and several battalions of Junta are under encirclement in two separate areas. Russian artillery should cooperate now and start
bombing them heavily. Either these encircled forces surrender or perish. These are elite brigades and much was expected of them. It is highly
unlikely they will surrender and thus fight till the ammo has run out. So they be ready for some heavy bombing and eventual destruction. Rebels
won't be waiting for prizes this time as once this theater is taken care of, they will commit the forces in the Northern areas.
Then Russia can also openly bring in its artillery, armor and rockets inside Ukraine under rebels and relieve pressure on the northern side of
Donetsk, where currently its artillery cannot reach.
Kiev Junta cannot commit reserves to Donbass region as that will put Kiev in danger. They cannot operate their air forces due to Russian air defense
missiles and rebel MANPADs. Junta is hoping for one last punch to take Donetsk and Luhansk. Even if they get a portion of these cities, their forces
will face Afghanistan and perish slowly.
Next two days will be crucial.
