AFU prepare false reports on heavy arms’ use by DPR forces

The Ukrainian party is preparing false reports on application by the DPR forces of heavy weapons and violations of "silence regime" on the part of the Republic, reported the Republic’s operative command representative.

"According to the intelligence data, the Ukrainian party is preparing information provocation. It isn't excluded that one of these days the Defence Ministry of Ukraine will make the official statement on the shelling of the AFU-controlled territory by the DPR forces which was allegedly carried out with heavy artillery the night before," said the military department official.

The command representative added that there is no confirmation to the facts of use by the DPR military personnel of artillery systems. In particular, the use of heavy arms wasn't detected by monitoring groups of the Joint Center on Control and coordination of ceasefire regime (JCCC).

"Thus the AFU try to justify shellings conducted from the Ukrainian positions overnight to September 5, and also to forge the ceasefire regime violations which allegedly took place with assistance of foreign journalists who continue staying near the front line on the territory under the enemy’s control," summarized the command representative.

Earlier the Ukrainian military fired at the vicinities of Dokuchayevsk and the Petrovsky district of Donetsk from artillery systems. As a result of the shellings there were damaged three houses on the western suburb of the DPR capital.
