Over the past 24 hours, the Ukrainian Armed Forces continued violating the ceasefire by firing mortar shells and small arms at areas of the settlements of Zaitsevo, Spartak and Trudovskiye.
Despite the reduction in the number of shelling and tensions on the line of combat contact, we continue recording the facts of criminal acts against civilians in the territories temporarily controlled by Ukraine.
So, the inhabitants of the occupied Krasnogorovka addressed us and informed that cases of looting have become more frequent in their city. And if earlier they were secretive and were carried out mainly by representatives of illegal armed formations of the Ukrainian volunteer corps Right Sector and the Ukrainian Volunteer Army, now representatives of the AFU are also engaged in this. Namely, servicemen of the 3rd battalion of 30 separate mechanized brigade stationed there, and which Vinnyk I.I. tries to command.
So, on January 1, one of the residents of the city, on returning home, found servicemen of the AFU leaving her apartment, carrying her heater and several warm things. When asked about the legitimacy of the actions they performed, she received the answer: "You, separatists, will not need them any more - soon none of you will remain here."
But the most terrible thing is that in addition to the usual looting, these fascists, leaving the ransacked apartments, mined them with trip wires, pursuing the only goal - getting rid of witnesses and apartment owners who might try to contact law enforcement agencies.
By the way, according to our data, a soldier of the 30 AFU separate mechanised brigade, who was wounded yesterday, was blown up when installing a trip wire in one of private houses in suburb of Krasnogorovka.
In conclusion, I would like to note that in connection with the arrival on January 3 and 4 in the so-called 'ATO' zone of German Foreign Minister, accompanied by his colleague from Ukraine and representatives of the media, we do not exclude the provocation by the AFU during this period for the preparation of fake reporting that accuses our armed forces of shelling the territories of settlements temporarily controlled by Ukraine.
