Donetsk Defense: Situation Report, 05/24/2017

Over the past 24 hours, the Armed Forces of Ukraine committed 48 violations of the ceasefire.

In the Gorlovka direction, from the positions of the 53 separate mechanized brigade, three 122-mm artillery shells were fired at Golmovsky township, resulting in a residential house damage at Zagorodnyaya Street, as well as five rounds of 120-mm calibre at the locality of Dolomitnoye. Small arms and various grenade launchers were used when attacking Dolomitnoye, Ozeryanovka, and Zaitsevo.

In the Donetsk direction, mortar crews of the 72 and 92 brigades launched 114 rounds of 120 and 82 mm calibre at the districts of Krutaya Bulka, Yasinovataya, Yakovlevka, Spartak, Zhabichevo, Dokuchayevsk, the airport district, the Kirovsky and Petrovsky districts of Donetsk.

In the Mariupol direction, from the positions of the 36 separate marines brigade, 12 rounds of 120 mm caliber and 15 rounds of 82 mm calibre were engaged on Sakhanka village. Also, shelling from small arms was recorded in the vicinity of the settlement of Kominterno.

Today's night was the result, on the basis of which we can draw a conclusion about the real strategy of Ukraine regarding, as they say, "non-forceful return of Donbass".

During the last days Ukrainian fascists inflicted massive strikes from artillery and rocket launchers on settlements of our Republic and positions of the People's Militia.

Along with this, several military provocations were prepared and carried out by the military leadership of the Ukrainian Armed Forces: this is shelling of Avdeyevka on May 13, which killed civilians, and a mortar strike on the Avdeyevka Coking Plant on May 22, which resulted in a fire on the working area, and yesterday's shelling of the Avdeyevka from multiple rocket launcher systems.

All these actions were aimed only at creating fabricated facts on accusating our Republic of violation of the agreements reached during the meeting of the Contact Group in Minsk.

In order to reinforce these facts and create an image of the non-involvement of the Ukrainian side in the provocations, at the time of the meeting, the headquarters of the so-called "ATO" announced a complete ban on conducting fire using heavy weapons, and for additional control sent working groups from the headquarters of the units, which shows definite results - we note a decrease in the firing of the Republican territory in comparison with the previous period.

The current government of Ukraine has a real chance to appear before the international community as another terrorist organization, and only international attention to Ukraine can stop the criminal actions of its military and political leadership.
