Donetsk Defense: Situation Report, 03/27/2018

The situation on the contact line continues to be tense.

Over the past day, Ukrainian occupation forces shelled the village of Zaitsevo using 82-mm mortars. As a result of the bombardment, a power line was damaged and the settlement was de-energized.

As a result of the bombardment, one defender of our Republic was deadly injured.


The situation with an unsuccessful attempt to penetrate our positions in Peski locality's area by saboteurs of the 57th brigade of Ukrainian terrorists on the night of March 25 has acquired new details.

According to the updated data, the enemy lost five people dead and three wounded.

At the same time, the headquarters of the "JFO" (joint forces operation) learned about the unsuccessful "special operation" of the 57th brigade and losses thanks to our reports and reports by journalists.

At present, a commission of the headquarters of the occupying forces arrived at the brigade's location to conduct a trial on the fact that the commander made an uncoordinated decision to a deliberately failed sortie of the sabotage group, as a result of which there are so many victims.

Preliminary conclusions and decisions of the commission for concealing this fact have already been adopted and approved personally by the commander of the occupation forces, Nayev:

1. The fact of the fighting and the number of losses for these days are to be concealed.

2. Information about the dead and wounded in a combat clash is to be reported in the reports and the media with a delay, 1-2 deaths per day.

3. In official bulletins, increase the number of shelling by the DPR Army, in order to justify the losses.

4. The bulk of this amount of losses is to be presented during the period of work in Donetsk from 28 to 30 March of Principal Deputy Chief Monitor of the OSCE SMM to Ukraine Alexander Hug.

Thus, we see that this is yet another blatant lie of the headquarters of the occupation forces operation, whose goal is to only discredit the DPR Armed Forces in the eyes of the world community and international organizations, as well as conceal the frank stupidity of the 57th brigade's command, which led to massive losses in minefields in this district.


Citizens of Ukraine, the war that was unleashed and is permanently supported by the criminal regime of Poroshenko brings one disaster and grief to your homes from the loss of relatives and friends.

Only in your power is to stop this insane bloodshed! And to rid Ukraine of the criminals, maniacs and bloodsuckers who now usurped the power in Ukraine, and also cash in on your grief and grow rich from the business built on the war!

And some representatives of the authorities, such as G. Moskal from Transcarpathia, became impudent and openly contradict even their masters, calling peacekeeping international organizations and the OSCE SMM, "loafers and alcoholics". This is because international missions prevented Ukrainian impostors from being inhumanly enriched.
