The situation on the contact line over the past day has not changed significantly and remains controlled.
The Ukrainian gunmen at the order of the terrorist and criminal Gorbatyuk one time have violated the ceasefire regime. The positions of the LPR People's Militia were subjected to firing near the locality of Nizhneye Lozovoye from AGS and small arms.
Under the guise of "an imaginary truce" Ukrainian punishers continue violating the Minsk Agreements, regarding the placement of the forbidden arms and military equipment near the line of contact. So, near the settlements of:
Popasnaya – there were detected two 152-mm self-propelled artillery mounts "Akatsiya";
Orekhovo – there was detected a firing position of one 122-mm self-propelled mount "Gvozdika";
Troitskoye – there were revealed the fortified positions with two 122-mm artillery howitzers D-30;
Mironovka – there was detected four units of disguised MRLS BM-21 Grad.
The criminal government of Ukraine continues deceiving own citizens, by concealing the AFU losses during provocations in the zone of the so-called anti-terrorist operation. So, yesterday, another two Ukrainian families were left without supporters, and according to documents they will be registered as missing persons and at the best case, to calm down relatives, the false Ukrainian media will begin their searches, it is natural only via Internet.
As a result of an explosion of the shell in a tube of the "super technology-savvy" Ukrainian mortar "Molot", at the positions near the locality of Popasnaya, during criminal firings of the territories of our Republic, two servicemen of the 1 battalion of the 24 brigade died, another one got severe wounds and was hospitalized.
Due to the continuous provocations carried out by the units of the AFU 54 brigade on the Svetlodarsk salient, the condition of the armored machinery of the brigade is estimated as unsatisfactory. There is revealed the breakdown in supply of fuel products in spite of the fact that at the moment there is a critically low reserve of fuel in the units. The fuel is sold for buying warm clothes, food and alcohol. Besides, the command of the brigade doesn't grant leaves to personnel and in order to get leave the serviceman has to pay the commander of the battalion 2, 000 UAH, and for the dismissing – 500 UAH.
These facts, once again, confirm an unsatisfactory morale and psychological condition of personnel.
Despite this, the commander of the 54 brigade Gorbatyuk continues calling on personnel to fulfill criminal orders on violation of the Minsk Agreements.
The LPR People's Militia is observing the "silence regime" and adheres to the agreements reached in Minsk. Our actions are aimed at the peaceful solution of the conflict in Donbass, but in case of the aggravation, we reserve the right to liberate the territories occupied by the Kiev bandits.
There are held combat trainings in the military units of the LPR People's Militia aimed at the improvement of coordination of actions of governing bodies, and also the LPR People's Militia personnel in fulfilling the tasks in the prescribed time.
