Ilovaisk battle, one of the most tragic pages in Ukraine's military history took place in August 2014. Back then, Ukrainian forces approached the city and were about to storm it so as to get rid of the units of pro-Russian separatists there. The city was almost liberated when regular Russian army units encircled a large group of Ukrainian troops there. The encircled Ukrainian units were offered to withdraw across the green corridor, as Russian troops guaranteed their safety. When the withdrawal process began, the enemy started shooting. Over 300 Ukrainian servicemen lost their lives in the obnoxious attacks; many more were wounded.
