'Over the past day the situation on the contact line has not changed. The Ukrainian military violated the ceasefire five times,' reported on Thursday the Vice-Commander of the DPR Eduard Basurin, having pointed out that 'the majority of the personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine demonstrate a significant drop in morale.' 'Many Ukrainian soldiers have difficulty accepting long terms of staying at the front, therefore, they get engaged in self-harm.' He also indicated that during the tactical exercises held today in the Donetsk People's Republic 'high levels of combat proficiency were demonstrated by artillery, tank and air defense crews that hit all training targets.'
