The situation in the Donetsk People’s Republic remains tense. The increase in the number of shellings is detected daily.
Over the past day the Ukrainian fighters violated ceasefire 2059 times. At that the enemy launched 122 artillery projectiles of 152mm and 122mm calibre, 368 mortar shells of 120mm and 82mm calibre. Besides, the fire was launched from infantry fighting vehicles, grenade launchers, and various types of small arms.
The following Republic’s localities underwent shellings by the Ukrainian terrorists Panchenko, Brusov, Gruzevitch, Shaptala, Nikolyuk, Sokolov and Delyatitsky: Zaitsevo, Gorlovka, Ozeryanovka, Shirokaya Balka, Yasinovataya, Yakovlevka, Spartak, Zhabichevo, Kamenka, Aleksandrovka, Signalnoye, Dokuchayevsk, Kominternovo, Leninskoye, Sakhanka and Trudovskiye locality of the Petrovsky district of Donetsk.
Our intelligence continues detecting strengthening of the AFU positions near the contact line:
- Near Maryinka (1 km away from the contact line) there were detected three 122mm towed howitzers D-30;
- Near Georgiyevka (7 km away from the contact line) there were detected firing positions of four howitzers D-30;
- Near Novgorodskoye (3 km away from the contact line) there were detected four 82mm mortars;
- Near Novosyolovka Vtoraya (4 km away from the contact line) there were detected two 152mm self-propelled artillery mounts ‘Akatsiya-B’.
On November 27 the Ukrainian fighters numbering up to 15 personnel from the 21st battalion of the 36th marine brigade made an attempt to attack our positions near Talakovka locality. During the fire contact with application of small arms, losses among AFU fighters made three killed and two wounded.
Near Ocheretino locality one AFU soldier got severely wounded because of non-compliance with safety requirements when unloading boxes with ammunition in the formed warehouses of tube, rocket and missile artillery ordnance of the 72nd brigade.
These facts of combat and noncombat losses everything are also concealed by official representatives of Ukraine’s Defence Ministry from the Ukrainian public.
One of the reasons of such concealment is the refusal to pay compensations to families of the military personnel who died as a result of conducting combat operations. Investigations of the facts of death of military personnel are held so that to show that the soldiers’ death was caused by natural reasons or personal imprudence. In this regard, the AFU command takes various tricks close to the point of absurdity. So, according to the command of the military unit deployed near Topolinoye locality, the Volodarsky district, lieutenant Pilyavets hasn’t kept balance when being in barracks and fell, having grunched against a dumbbell, therefore he got nonsurvivable injuries. His family won't receive any compensation.
Besides, another fact of unauthorized leaving of a military base by an AFU soldier was established. So, on November 26 from the base of the 14th brigade, having given out to nationalists’ pressure, from his post escaped an armed soldier. He is still being searched for.
The Ukrainian side continues interfering with restoration of the the Republic’s infrastructure facilities. So, near Uglegorsk locality the Ukrainian military opened provocative fire at the power lines’ recovery works site. As a result, repair units were forced to wind down the work.
Adjustment of fire at the infrastructure restoration district, and also provocative sorties of the Ukrainian military, was carried out by means of UAVs. We detected operation of three UAVs in the Gorlovka and Mariupol directions.
We knew established that the Ukrainian volunteers who arrived to the so-called ‘ATO’ zone to render assistance to civilians, were fired by the AFU and forced to leave, without having provided humanitarian aid to persons in need. By a tradition, Ukrainian military accused the DPR army of having conducted the shelling.
Besides, according to our data, near Mirny locality, that is northwards from Mariupol, the AFU command gave local residents the order to leave the territory of the nearby private households and personal plots.
These facts once again confirm the course of destructive policy taken by the Ukrainian leaders who are capable only of causing destructions and conducting criminal activity against civilians.
