The Ukrainian side insistently and purposefully keeps shelling the territory of the DPR and hopes to provoke counteractions on the part of the DPR Armed Forces.
In the Donetsk direction, the enemy applied artillery, mortars and small arms having launched 10 projectiles of 122mm caliber as well as 39 mortar-shells of 120mm caliber and 40 mortar-shells of 82mm caliber on the areas of 30 localities and nearby districts.
In the Gorlovka and Mariupol directions, the enemy launched 26 mortar-shells of 120mm and 82mm caliber and shelled four localities and nearby districts actively applying grenade launchers and small arms.
Earlier, I reported on appearance of a large number of snipers from among Ukrainian servicemen and foreign mercenaries along the whole contact line. Their activation led to death of two Republican defenders.
By word of mouth propagandizing reintegration or reunification of Ukraine’s territory, in practice military-political leadership carries out politics of terror in relation to its citizens that inhibits peaceful settlement of the conflict.
Pandering to the bloody Kiev regime, Commander of the 92nd separate infantry brigade Kokorev committed another military crime. From the positions which are under his command, the Petrovsky district of Donetsk City was shelled, one private house-building on Amudarinskaya Street was damaged.
Altogether, over the past 24 hours there were registered 56 ceasefire violations on the part of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU).
Our intelligence keeps detecting concentration of the prohibited-by-the-Minsk-agreements weapons along the contact line with which the AFU shell civilians. Thus, in the vicinity of the locality of Krasnogorovka (3km away from the contact line) there were detected firing positions of three ‘Gvozdika’ self-propelled artillery platforms of 122mm caliber from among the 92nd separate infantry brigade.
In the vicinity of the locality of NOVOLUGANSKOYE (3km away from contact line) there was detected arrival of two mechanized platoons by six armored vehicles from among the ‘Aidar’ terrorist armed gang.
Due to escalation of relations between Poroshenko and Internal Affairs Minister Avakov, several officials from MIA key personnel were fired and there were even opened criminal cases against some of them. Avakov feeling that an armchair has shaken under him is to arrive in the so-called “ATO” zone in controlled-by-him units of the National Guard on August 5. According to a source from National Guard Headquarters, Avakov in case he is retired plans to give an order to go to Kiev as soon as possible on his private command to commanders of all the levels to carry out a coup d’etat.
