The situation on the line of contact has stabilized. During the day the ceasefire regime hasn't been violated.
Despite the reduced number of shellings, the Ukrainian junta still counts on occupation of our territories by force. For this purpose, using the seeming ceasefire regime, the AFU Command carries out a regrouping of forces and deployment of the forbidden arms to the line of contact. So in areas of the settlements:
Popasnaya – there was detected the arrival of four tanks from among the ranks of the tank battalion of the 24th brigade;
Mironovka – there were revealed four camouflaged units of MLRS “Grad”.
Due to the failure of an offensive operation by the Ukrainian punishers on Svetlodarsk salient, and also unsuccessful provocations, there is expected the arrival of curators from the USA and the Canadian instructors to Lugansk on January 25. I would like to note that the supporters of the Ukrainian Nazi regime estimate the chances of the Ukrainian punishers to succeed in conditions of real clashes with People's Militia as extremely low. In this connection, there is planned the delivery of lethal weapons consignment for the AFU, namely fifteen M-16 assault rifles, produced in the USA which remain the main arms of the American infantry so far.
Besides, we continue getting information on AFU non-combat losses which are concealed from the military superiors. So, in the AFU 24th brigade the driver of the truck, hasn't managed to drive on the slippery road, and capsized the vehicle sending it in a ditch. As a result of the road accident one AFU serviceman died and eight of them got injures of varying severity.
It once again shows the incapacity, lack of political will and fear which doesn't allow junta to cover the true situation in the so-called anti-terrorist operation zone.
In turn, the People's Militia, being one of the main law enforcement agencies of our Republic, plays a crucial role in ensuring its protection and security.
Strictly observing the Minsk Agreements, not reacting to military, political, information and other provocations made by Ukraine, our units steadily continue improving fighting skills and military level of training. It is once again confirmed with high estimated rates regarding the results of the carried-out fighting firing practice of platoons.
Besides, there were held competitions among snipers of the LPR People's Militia units. The participants of competitions passed an assault course and then opened fire with sniper rifles. Snipers have shown not only individual skills, but also ability to work in tandem.
