AFU start to plant mines at life support facilities in Kiev-held Donbass

DPR reconnaissance received information about the fact that the Ukrainian military plant mines at civilian objects in the front-line cities controlled by Kiev. This was announced today by the Vice-Commander of the DPR Operational Command, Eduard Basurin.

"In a number of settlements in the Kiev-occupied territory, the engineering and demining units of the AFU are carrying out mining of civil infrastructure facilities. Ukrainian sappers are laying landmines near water and gas pipelines, power plants and power transmission line supports," he said.

According to the reconnaissance, mining is conducted in Volnovakha, Krasnogorovka, Maryinka, Dzerzhynsk, Avdeyevka and Svetlodarsk. Basurin did not rule out that mined objects could be undermined for the subsequent accusation of the DPR Armed Forces in the "shelling".
