The situation in the Donetsk People’s Republic remains tense.
The Ukrainian military violated the ceasefire regime 314 times over the past 24 hours, from this number using the weapons prohibited by the Minsk agreements 217 times.
The units of the same commanders being incapable of putting things right keep shelling the territory of the Republic. Thus:
The Deputy Commander of the 58th separate infantry brigade Kobizsky and the commander of the 128th separate mountain infantry brigade Shaptala, being on a visit of each other celebrated their day-off while their subordinates from the front-line units were shelling the locality of Yasinovataya and the area of the airport of Donetsk City having launched 8 artillery shells of 122mm caliber and 81 mortar shells of 82mm and 120mm caliber and 17 tank shells;
The commander of the 46th separate brigade Donbass-Ukraina Vlasenko gave the dust to his friends-drinking buddies in the race for leadership concerning the number of shellings and shelled the locality of Aleksandrovka and the locality of Trudosvkiye of the Petrovsky district of Donetsk City 97 times with mortars of 82mm caliber;
The defenders of “rich men”, the units of the 36th separate brigade of of the navy under the command of Delyarinsky launched 14 mortar shells of 82mm caliber at the residential houses during the shelling of the locality of Sakhanka. As a result of the mortar fire there got wounded Novikova Galina Pavlovna born in 1963. She got wounded being inside her own house that got damaged as well because of the shelling.
The Ukrainian military shelled the localities of Gorlovka, Zaitsevo,Panteleimonovka, Zheleznaya Balka, Aleksandrovka, Belaya Kamenka, Novaya Maryevka, Sakhanka and the locality of Trudovskiye of the Petrovsky district of Donetsk City with grenade launchers and small arms.
Our intelligence keeps registering the facts of presence of the AFU weapons prohibited in the “ATO” zone near the contact line. Thus, in the area of the localities of:
Makedonovka (12km away from the contact) in the area of the railway station “Aslanova” there were registered the firing positions of 8 mortars of 122mm caliber;
Sopino (7km away from the contact line) on the territory of the college №141 there was registered the concentration of 2 tanks, 4 self-propelled artillery platforms “Gvozdika” and there were located up to 150 people of the military personnel;
Gnutovo (8km away from the contact line) on the territory of the cow buildings there was registered arrival of tank troop (12 tanks), 2 mechanized platoons by infantry fighting vehicles, 3 air defense guns-23-4 “Shilka” and up to a troop of the military personnel up to 70 people.
All the data on violating the Minsk agreements by the Ukrainian side and presence of the AFU prohibited weapons were handed over to the OSCE Mission and JCCC representatives.
According to our information, in the 3rd battalion of the 30th brigade in the area of the locality of Trudovskoye (the Volnovakha district), the military personnel of the AFU units stole all of the fuel capacity. At present time the AFU units located near Volnovakha town are in a critical supply of combustive and lubricating materials and are not capable of implementing the tasks allotted. Due to this, the Ukrainian military have to steal fuel from civilians or to buy it with their own money. Because of such a situation, in the zone of the responsibility of the 30th brigade there arrived the commission from rear services of the headquarters Mariupol to check gasoline and oil depots. According to the preliminary data, there was registered fuel embezzlement in the extent of over 50 tons.
It is important to note that the Ukrainian provokers use social medias recently to destabilize the situation in the localities of the Republic. Besides they utilize pages and groups where they tried to win the Republican residents’ confidence by the probable messages.
I am asking you to be vigilant and to critically deal with the poor forgeries and not to have mercy on those who supported stuffings of the punishers and who allowed to deceive you!
I am calling not to trust the sources in the social medias - groups and user accounts whoever it was and what kind of confidence it was enjoyed by, who spread and supported yesterday’s stuffing concerning the Ukrainian sabotage-reconnaissance group’s breakthrough in the area of Trudovskiye (the locality of Petrovsky) of Donetsk City. We can say that all these resources initially were created by the enemy to deceive the Republican residents or sold out to a service arm of the punishers.
In the second place, the current information filed of operative information’s exchange allows us to be aware of the situation in any district of the Republic and also on the territory controlled by the AFU. I am calling to trust only the official sources and only those information that are announced by the official representatives of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
And in the third place, I am calling for the future to assess all the messages aimed at provoking disorders in the Republic as the actions of the Ukrainian forces of psychological operations and of their NATO instructors and calling upon the administrators of the groups in the social medias to muse before they spread the doubtful and non-confirmed information and whether it is needed to bring discredit to themselves and to damage authority earned for 2 yeas of fight.
