Something like that. As one political analyst put it; Putin adopted a "Crap will happen" plan towards Ukraine. Things got thrown in the air to see where they would land, and what might then be made of them. Likely things that might have been in the cards with a different outcome never came to pass, including stuff going down other parts of Ukraine as well. (Some hope still seems to be brewing on some hands, that other parts of Ukraine will erupt as well.)

Recently were reported about 2 boats of board guards of Ukraine hit from the coast. Different sources claimed different means (mortars, artillery, tank fire). IMHO, they were hit by tank fire and antitank guided missiles.
No exact data about KIA and WIA

Yet backtracking through this thread there seems to have been a moment when it was occupied by separatist forces,

how were they expelled from the underground complex ?

Presumably the Ukranians came at them from the other side ? Or did the Ukranian forces hold the tunnels throughout ?

There is underground network leading to former military unit ground outside the airport. And ukrainians widely uses this network. I would said it's not a trivial task to get them out of it. Seems it will not be done until Avdeevka is captured.
