Lugansk Defense: Situation Report, 05/30/2017

The situation in the responsibility zone of the LPR People’s Militia didn’t undergo any essential changes and remains tense. Over the past 24 hours, the enemy committed seven ceasefire violations. 

The positions of our units in the vicinities of the localities of Zhelobok, Kalinovka, Krasny Yar, Novokiyevka, Logvinovo, Lozovoye and the area of the monument devoted to Prince Igor underwent shelling. The Armed Forces of Ukraine applied mortars of 120mm and 82mm caliber, IFVs, automatic grenade launchers and small arms when shelling. Altogether, 187 mortar-shells and projectiles were launched onto the territory of the Republic. 


Our intelligence registered the fact that the unit of Nazis - ‘Right Sector’ amounting up to 70 people arrived in the locality of Schastye. The Right Sector Gunmen started terrorizing the local population: occupying houses and stealing, hanging their flags at the top of the administrative buildings. 

Besides, we know that NATO instructors arrived in the 14th separate mechanized brigade of the AFU to teach Ukrainian servicemen intelligence and provocative activities. 


We keep revealing facts of non-battle losses in the ranks of the AFU. Thus, on May 29, when patrolling the territory in the vicinity of the locality of POPASNAYA, a detachment of the 1st battalion of the 24th separate brigade went out on their mining field that wasn’t marked on a map. As a result of tripping a mine, three servicemen of the AFU were differently wounded. This fact is thoroughly concealed from the top command. 


The units of the LPR People’s Militia keep holding military readiness events and don’t react to provocations, comply with the Minsk agreements. We aim at solving the conflict in Donbass by peaceful means but in case the situation escalates we have a right to liberate the territories occupied by Kiev bandits by decisive means.
