Donetsk Defense: Situation report, 09/12/2017

Over the past 24 hours, 29 violations of the ceasefire regime by the Ukrainian Armed Forces were recorded.

In the Donetsk direction, the enemy used mortars, infantry fighting vehicles, weapons of armored personnel carriers and small arms. 21 mortar shells of 82-mm and 120-mm calibres were launched on nine localities and the surrounding areas.

In the Mariupol direction, the enemy fired from various grenade launchers and small arms at the villages of Kominternovo and Oktyabr.

In the Gorlovka direction, the locality of Zaitsevo was attacked from IFV weapons and small arms.

As a result of an attack, one house at the address Poletayeva St., 169, was damaged.

According to the information available to us, the special operations forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have begun to receive Russian uniforms for carrying out provocations near the contact line in the Donetsk and Mariupol directions. According to the plan of the Ukrainian command, the provocations and crimes of the Ukrainian forces in Russian uniforms on the territory of the Republics and in the so-called 'ATO' zone should be fixed by the OSCE representatives, for subsequent accusations of the Russian Armed Forces of the presence in Donbass and false crimes.

Against the backdrop of total drunkenness and drug addiction in the units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, a new level of uncontrolled circulation of weapons and explosives in Ukraine has been reached.

What can we say about the moral and psychological condition of soldiers, if the officers responsible for the educational work of subordinates are themselves involved in the arms trade? Thus, the well-known deputy commander of the group for moral and psychological support of the 72 separate mechanized brigade, Senior Lieutenant Pashuk O.V. was detained by the SBU when selling 12 grenades F-1 and four RGD-5 to local residents in the settlement of Avdeyevka.

Also, in the location of the 20th separate motorized infantry battalion of the 93 brigade, captain Julin in a state of strong alcohol intoxication threatened the personnel with a grenade. It was noted that he had previously had 10 active disciplinary charges and was quietly serving in the ranks of the AFU. And such officers represent the backbone of the Ukrainian Armed Forces! It is these commanders who give orders to fire on civilians in Donbas, and then come to their homeland and violate justice against the citizens of Ukraine.
