Over the past 24 hours the Armed Forces of Ukraine committed 65 ceasefire violations.

The localities of Yakovlevka, Krutaya Balka, Mineralnoye, Vasilyevka, Spartak, Staromikhailovka, Dokuchayevsk, Yasnoye, the airport area and the Petrovsky district of Donetsk City underwent shellings from the positions of the 72nd and 92nd separate brigades.

In general, since 00:00 the ceasefire is observed by the Ukrainian side. Using inactivity, the Ukrainian side will attempt to commit provocations on the territory of the Donetsk People's Republic. In this connection, in the divisions of the Armed Forces of the Republic, a set of practical measures to improve the antiterrorist and anti-sabotage security of the military and operational facilities of the Republic together with the units of the MGB and DPR Ministry of Internal Affairs.
Also, in connection with the events held on the occasion of the International Children's Day, additional security measures were taken.
Despite the measures taken by the military-political leadership, the discipline in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine remains low.
In particular, from the representatives of the apparatus of the head of the Main Directorate for Work with the Personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, we received a report on the facts of violations in the structural divisions of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry and the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the period from 11 to 17 May, 2017.
Thus, just over a week in the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine 106 offenses, involving military personnel were registered. More than a half of them, namely 59 - is the unauthorized abandonment of a unit and desertion, theft of property and weapons, forgery of documents - 15, death due to poisoning with drugs and alcohol - 3, murder - 2, hazing-13, other offenses - 14.
We have proceedings from the 82nd separate brigade concerning individual cases.
According to the materials of the trial of the deputy commander of the 122nd battalion of the 81st brigade for moral and psychological support of Captain LYASHENKO VA, SEMENYUT Soldier, being in a daily outfit, under the influence of narcotic substances, entered into hazing with his platoon commander, junior lieutenant GEEKOM. According to the soldier, the commander expressed support to the young republics, in connection with it, the soldier inflicted severe bodily injuries on the officer.
Similarly, basing on the materials of another trial of the deputy commander of the 122nd battalion, in fact, where Junior Sergeant KIRILYUK, being in an unauthorized absence in DRUZHKOVKA, abused alcoholic beverages and inflicted severe bodily injuries on Citizen ISKYANDAROV. KIRILUK explained his actions by an insult on the part of ISKYANDAROV, who had called the sergeant "Bandera". At the same time, there is information that the deputy of the 122nd battalion is trying to distort this fact, so that the opened criminal will be collapsing during investigation stages.
Thus, murders, mass unauthorized abandonment of units, theft of weapons and property, death due to the abuse of alcohol and drugs are quite common and inconspicuous facts for the military units of Ukraine and do not deserve attention.
