Donetsk Defense: Situation Report, 09/03/2017

Since the beginning of the academic ceasefire not having come into force, there is a threatening tendency to increase the number of ceasefire violations by the Ukrainian side.

Over the past 24 hours, altogether, there were registered 29 ceasefire violations on the part of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU). 

In the Donetsk direction, the enemy applied tanks, mortars, IFVs, armored vehicles and small arms. One tank-shell, 18 mortar-shells of 120mm caliber and seven mortar-shells of 82mm caliber were launched on the territories of ten localities and their nearby areas. 

In the Mariupol and Gorlovka directions, the enemy launched five mortar-shells of 82mm caliber on one locality and shelled four localities more with grenade launchers and small arms. 

The falsity of "ATO" headquarters statements about strict control over compliance with the ceasefire was reaffirmed by the commanders of the 72nd separate mechanized brigade and the 57th separate motorized infantry brigade, war criminals SOKOLOV and KRASILNIKOV. Over the past day, the greatest number of shellings unfortunately having become traditional was detected in their areas of responsibility. This is YASINOVATNAYA, YAKOVLEVKA, CIRCULAR BULK, VASILYEVKA, SPARTAK, ZHABICHEVO, as well as the territory of Donetsk airport.

In confirmation of the words of the leadership of the Ukrainian side in the JCCC, I would like to see the measures taken by it to stop the fire from units subordinate to these commanders. As of today, as a result of the Ukrainian military leadership's inaction, we are witnessing a gradual increase in the AFU activity in these areas. As it happened more than once, this will lead to the resumption of massive shelling by the enemy with the use of heavy weapons along the entire line of contact.

Moreover, in confirmation of the above, today from 4 to 8 am the Ukrainian military conducted systematic bombardment of KOMINTERNOVO and BEZYMENNOY settlements in the south of the Republic. At the same time, the enemy used artillery of 152-mm caliber, tanks, mortars of 120mm and 82 mm caliber, IFVs, as well as grenade launchers and heavy machine guns.

An observation post of the JCCC in the settlement of Bezymennoye came under fire on the part of the Armed Forces of Ukraine again. Representatives at the Joint Center from the Russian and Ukrainian sides for their own security had to descend into the shelter twice. They also felt the Ukrainian regime of "non-cease-fire". Our control groups confirmed, together with the JCCC, the maintenance of the "silence" regime by the units of the People's Militia, despite the continuing provocations of the enemy.
