Lugansk Defense: Situation Report, 06/15/2017

The situation in the responsibility zone of the LPR People's Militia hasn’t escalated, but remains tense.

Over the past day, the enemy committed 11 violations of the ceasefire. 

Our units' positions near the localities of Lozovoye, Nizhneye Lozovoye, Frunze, Oboznoye, Krasny Liman and Almaznoye were shelled. The locality of Donetsky was shelled again, where three private houses sustained damage. When attacking, the Armed Forces of Ukraine applied banned by the Minsk accords 122-mm calibre artillery, 120-mm and 82-mm mortars, IFV cannons, various grenade launchers and small arms. In total, 118 projectiles and shells were launched onto the Republic's territory. 

The Ukrainian Armed Forces continue to use UAVs to conduct reconnaissance and fire adjustments near the contact line, thereby ignoring the Minsk agreements and the international obligations assumed.

Thus, the members of the OSCE Mission patrol detected the flight of an AFU UAV at about 500 m altitude over Orekhovo locality, controlled by of the Kiev government, which was returning to the permanent disposition of the 93 brigade of the AFU. In the area of Stanitsa Luganskaya with 5 minutes interval, the observers of the OSCE Mission recorded two AFU UAVs that were moving along the Seversky Donets River.

Along with this, we became aware of the facts of other noncombat losses in the AFU ranks. So, on June 12, at night, after humiliations and insults from his colleagues, a serviceman of the 93 AFU brigade attempted to leave the location of the unit in vicinity of Toshkovka locality. But, when moving near the military unit, the soldier blew himself up on a trip wire set by his own colleagues, as a result of which he lost both legs.

And in the 24th brigade of the AFU, during alcohol comsuming, there was a quarrel between servicemen, which resulted in a bullet wound in the leg of one of the servicemen.

Both facts are hidden from the higher command.

I note that the units of the LPR People's Militia do not react to provocations, supporting the "silence regime", and they comply with the Minsk agreements. We are aimed at solving the conflict in Donbass peacefully. But in case of an aggravation of the situation, we reserve the right to act decisively in the interests of protecting our citizens.

For this purpose, the units of the People's Militia conduct trainings on increasing fieldcraft and combat readiness. So, yesterday, at one of the training grounds, trainings were held on the operational coordination of platoons, during which tactical tasks were conducted to maintain the position defense, to repel an enemy attack and to switch to a counterattack.
