The Ukrainian forces conducted in the conflict zone in Donbass exercises to land troops on the shore of the Azov Sea, four kilometres away from the demarcation line, reported the Vice-Commander of the Operational Command of the Donetsk People's Republic, Eduard Basurin.
"The punitive forces, taking advantage of the armistice and violating the Minsk agreements, conducted exercises to practice details of disembarkation using inflatable boats, elimination of the enemy and occupation of the defense area," he said.
Basurin specified that the exercises took place in the vicinity of Berdyanskoye settlement, four kilometres away from the contact line. According to him, servicemen of an air assault battalion of the 36th brigade were involved in practicing details of an offensive from the sea.
Let us recall that the "Easter" truce, initiated by DPR Head Alexander Zakharchenko, began to operate in Donbass on March 30 midnight. Silence on the fronts did not last long. The first violations by the Ukrainian troops were registered in some 9,5 hours.
