Donetsk Defense: Situation Report, 03/11/2018

Over the past day, the Ukrainian occupation command again failed to ensure full compliance of the ceasefire by the subordinate militants.

In the Donetsk direction, the area of the Sakhanka settlement was subjected to shelling, at which the enemy fired mortars with the caliber of 120-mm, having launched ten ordnances.

In total one violation of the ceasefire regime by Ukrainian occupants was recorded, which indicates the unwillingness of the Ukrainian occupation command to implement the agreements reached.

As I have already said, recently reconnaissance groups of the enemy special operations forces, especially in the Mariupol and Gorlovka directions, had become much more active on the battle contact line. The purpose of these actions is to obtain reconnaissance data on the composition and position of our troops, which once again confirms the enemy's intention to resume large-scale military operations in Donbass.

Thus, the Special Forces of the special operations of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, through recruited citizens, held an action, as a result of which one of the DPR Army's soldiers, Soloid Igor Viktorovich, was captured. For the abduction of the serviceman by the DRG forces, a woman agent was used, as well as psychotropic substances.

After being influenced and interrogated by Ukrainian intelligence officers, Soloid was handed over to propagandists from the 72nd Information and Psychological Operations Center of the AFU. The soldier captured in fraudulent manner is used to distribute through the Ukrainian controlled media the misinformation and false accusations against the DPR Armed forces and the leadership of the Republic.
