The Battle of Ilovaisk started on 7 August 2014, when the Armed Forces of Ukraine began a series of attempts to capture the city of Ilovaisk from Russia-backed militants of Donetsk People's Republic.
Ukrainian soldiers quickly became encircled by the militants and Russian troops. After long days of encirclement, Ukrainian forces made an agreement with the militants, favored by Russian president Vladimir Putin, to allow them to retreat from the city. This agreement was not honored, and 459 Ukrainian soldiers died whilst trying to escape. According to MP Anatoliy Herashchenko, there were 1000 Ukrainian troops who died as a result of Ilovaisk battle.
