Lugansk Defense: Situation Report, 06/12/2017

The situation in the responsibility zone of the LPR People's Militia remains tense.

Over the past day, the enemy committed 13 violations of the ceasefire. 

Our units' positions near the localities of Frunze, Donetsky, Zhelobok, Lozovoye, Vesyologorovka, Kalinovka, Kalinovo and Pervomaisk were shelled. When attacking, the Armed Forces of Ukraine applied 120-mm and 82-mm mortars mortars, IFV cannons, various grenade launchers and small arms. In total, 126 projectiles and shells were launched onto the Republic's territory. 

We note new cases of non-combat losses in the Ukrainian Armed Forces ranks that arise as a result of alcohol and narcotic substances abuse by soldiers of the Ukrainian army.

So, on June 10 in Popasnaya locality, a serviceman of the 3 battalions of the 24 AFU brigade after consuming narcotic substances, shot his fellow soldiers from an assault rifle. One soldier died on the spot from the wounds received, the second was hospitalized.

Also, yet another case of suicide occurred in Stary Aidar locality, the Stanichno-Lugansky district, where, on June 8, a gun-layer from the mechanized branch of the 14 AFU brigade, the private Beletsky Taras Nikolayevich committed suicide while serving in a day duty, shot himself from the AKSU machine into his head. A suicide note was found in the clothes of the deceased serviceman. He accuses of his death the company commander who, while in a state of intoxication, regularly beat and humiliated Beletsky, and complaints to the higher command turned into new mockeries from the company commander.

All these facts are hidden by the battalion's command from the superior leadership and relatives of the deceased, whom they explained that the servicemen were killed as a result of military operations.

Despite the Minsk agreements' ban on the use of UAVs along the contact line, the command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces continues to use them actively to collect intelligence information and adjust artillery fire.

We regularly record the reinforcement of aerial reconnaissance by UAV units from the 24 AFU brigade in the vicinity of Zolotoye settlement.

We seek a peaceful solution to the conflict in Donbass, but in the event of an aggravation of the situation, the LPR People's Militia reserves the right, by decisive action, to liberate the territories captured by the AFU.

Planned training sessions for combat training with all units continue on the People's Militia proving grounds. Trainings with personnel to bring them to the highest degree of combat readiness are regularly conducted.

Today, in the units of the 7th detachment, a training session has been conducted on the organization of communications in the chain: company-battalion-detachment. Military communications officers have complied with the regulations on the deployment of control points in the field, the establishment of communications in the conditions of the enemy's use of radio interference, with observance of the rules of radio exchange and the development of introductory notes for the elimination of the arisen malfunctions. The units of the People's Militia are in constant combat readiness for the fulfillment of suddenly arising tasks in the face of a rapidly changing combat situation.
