The situation in the responsibility zone of the LPR People's Militia didn't undergo any essential changes and remains tense.
Ukraine's military committed four ceasefire violations over the past 24 hours.
Positions of our units in the vicinities of the localities of Vesyoloya Gora, Sanzharovka, Molodyozhnoye and Kalinovka underwent shellings. The Armed Forces of Ukraine applied 82mm mortars, IFVs, grenade launchers of various kinds and small arms while shelling. Thirty mortar-shells and grenades were launched onto the territory of the Republic.
Yesterday, at 09:10 p.m., Kiev military shelled Vesyolaya Gora Locality with 82mm mortars. As a result, a residential house on Kirov Street was damaged.
Only by good fortune, no casualties were reported.
Ukrainian criminal-military leadership bends every effort to further escalate the conflict in Donbass.
Thus, under the pretense of helping civilians in solving a transport issue, in particular of crossing rivers, Kiev military hold events aimed at placing pontoon-bridge-crossing sites and restoring bridges across water barriers in the vicinity of the contact line.
It's obvious that this is aimed at further dislocation of military hardware.
At present time, the Ukrainian side is repairing bridges over the Seversky Donets River in the localities of Rubezhnoye and Lisichansk.
The Ukrainian Armed Forces General Staff Commission has arrived at a 'Lugansk' Task Force to carry out investigation concerning the received information about sharp increase in a number of cases when the AFU servicemen have tuberculosis. At present time, the number of the servicemen who have this decease is 32 persons.
The corresponding Medicine remedies' absence aggravates the current situation. Decease reasons are rotten meal, health rules' violations, including when cooking, unsatisfactory living conditions, withdrawal of commanders from subordinate military personnel.
Moreover, yesterday, a serviceman of the 24th separate mechanized brigade of the AFU called a hot-line, who told that old army thermos bottles were used. Their working lifespan was expired long ago. The thermos bottles themselves are out of repair. Logistical services are ignoring all the statements and requests, referring to absence of new ones. As a result, the unit had to jointly buy filling materials.
The Ukrainian side disrupted disengagement of forces and facilities in the vicinity of Stanitsa Luganskaya Locality again. The AFU units systematically violate the 'harvest ceasefire' that is a violation of the Minsk agreements and unwillingness of Ukraine's military-political leadership to implement undertaken commitments.
We, in our turn, still comply with the ceasefire regime. Our actions, as before, are aimed at resolving the conflict in Donbass by peaceful means, but in case the situation escalates, the LPR People's Militia has a right to liberate Kiev-military-occupied territories by decisive actions.
