DPR Defence Ministry: Situation Report, 18.11.2015
The situation in the Donetsk People's Republic has remained tense over the past day. There were 10 ceasefire violations by the Ukrainian punishers. Zaitsevo, Spartak, Zhabunki settlements and the area of the Donetsk airport were fired from the positions of the Ukrainian units and nationalist battalions with mortars of 120 mm and 82 mm calibre, infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers and small arms. The DPR's intelligence gets information about placing of the "Azov" battalion's personnel in the houses belonging to civilians in the demilitarized zone of Shirokino settlement. Furthermore, our intelligence continues to reveal facts of provocations against the DPR's army and accusations of Russian military presence in Donbass. We have found out that the command of the anti-terrorist operation has ordered the command officers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to identify the dead people found in the area of operation as soldiers of the Russian Federation. They should use the falsification of documents, even to change corpses' uniform up to sample. As winter sets in, the return of civilians from the temporarily occupied territories to their homes is blocked by military units of Ukraine under various pretexts. We appeal to the monitoring mission of the OSCE and other human rights organizations to pay attention to the fact of the civilian population's abuse. On the eve of the arrival of Martin Sajdik (the OSCE representative in Ukraine) in the territory of the Republic, the DPR's intelligence didn't record the withdrawal of heavy weapons pulled in earlier in the buffer zone. We are concerned that after the departure of an influential guest, the situation will escalate once again, the shelling of the republic will continue, resulting in the deaths of civilians. We call on the world states, the guarantors of security, to turn finally their attention to the current critical situation in the republic and prevent the outbreak of war in the east of Europe. Vice-Commander Eduard Basurin, official translation by DONi News Agency
