Volunteer battalions abandoned by Ukrainian army and left to be annihilated?

For many days the internet community cries out that battalion Donbas is left on its own at Ilovaisk, abandoned by the Ukrainian army, surrounded because of the sudden advance by the Russian regular army and basically no way out for them anymore.

Read that story as it is being told by @lennutrajektoor over the last weeks:

August 10th

August 13th

August 18th

August 19th

August 20th

August 21st

August 22nd

A situation map of this date with Ilovaisk pointed out:

August 23rd

August 24th

August 26th

August 27th

August 28th

August 29th 

These are all volunteer battalions!!

My conclusion is that it looks like the Ukrainian army (or elements within it) deliberately seek the total destruction of the volunteer battalions.
