Over the past 24 hours, the Armed Forces of Ukraine committed 30 ceasefire violations.
In the Donetsk direction, the enemy applied mortars, IFV, AVV and small arms. Nine localities’ areas were targeted with 17 mortar shells of 120-mm calibre and 12 rounds of 82-mm calibre.
In the Mariupol direction, the enemy fired five mortar rounds of 82-mm calibre at the Kominternovo locality. The localities of Sakhanka and Leninskoye were also subjected to shelling from grenade launchers and small arms.
In the Gorlovka direction, the foeman launched one mortar round of 120-mm calibre at the locality of Krasny Partizan.
On the eve of the meeting of the Tripartite Contact Group in Minsk, representatives of the JCCC from the Ukrainian party provide information about shelling of the AFU positions by our units, as a fact requiring no evidence. To hide the fact of disobedience of Ukrainian security forces before their political leadership, the Ukrainian military drag by the head and ears any information that compromises our Republic.
As I said yesterday, the shelling of the Right Sector's sabotage group, as a result of which one guerilla was destroyed and four wounded, was presented as another act of aggression by the DPR Armed Forces. Today the same pseudo-officers of the Ukrainian army will say that we have shelled the positions of Ukrainian national heroes. And in fact, a soldier of the Armed Forces, being in a state of strong alcoholic intoxication, threw a grenade in the dugout where his companion was.
On Sunday, a serviceman of the 59th motorized infantry brigade blew himself up on his own trip-wire and died, and this fact was also presented as a shelling from our side.
The measures being taken by the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to complete the formations and military units with personnel for sending to the so-called "ATO" zone do not bring success. Officially, the Ukrainian leadership does not advertise the next wave of mobilization, fearing a social explosion and mass protests of the population against the illegal sending to civil war, called the "antiterrorist operation." However, there are many facts of receiving agendas by citizens of Ukraine, demobilized and resigned from the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Thus, the military commissars are trying to fulfill the plans on manning by double sending of their citizens to the war.From today, the command and staff mobilization assemblies with a defensive theme began in the DPR, during which commanders of units in cooperation with military enlistment offices of the Republic will work out the recruitment and staffing of volunteers in the army of the DPR in case of enemy aggression.
