Russian Spring publishes a full summary of the military situation in the DPR over the past 24 hours following today’s briefing by the official representative of the UNM DPR, Daniil Bezsonov.
Over the past day, the enemy violated the cease-fire eighteen times. Shots from the Ukrainian armed forces were subjected to areas of nine settlements of the Republic.
On the Gorlovka direction, the militants of the 58th motorized infantry and 30th mechanized brigades under the command of war criminals Drapatogo and Garaz fired grenade launchers, large-caliber machine guns and small arms to districts n. Zaitsevo and the village of mine them. Gagarin.
In the Donetsk direction, from the positions of the 57th motorized infantry, 28th and 93rd mechanized brigades under the command of war criminals Mishanchuk, Marchenko and Klochkova, they fired with 82 mm mortars, grenade launchers and small arms, including large-caliber, in areas N. Spartak, Krutaya Balka, Staromikhaylovka, Trudovskie and Aleksandrovka.
Yesterday, the militants of the 93rd mechanized brigade of 82 mm caliber mortar, LNG, heavy machine guns and small arms fired at a water utility company “Water of Donbass”, carrying employees of the company.
Eleven employees, of whom three women, managed to leave the vehicle and start hiding on the side of the shelling. Fortunately, this time there were no casualties.
In the Mariupol direction, militants of the 79th Air Assault Brigade under the command of the war criminal Kurach of 120 mm and 82 mm mortars, grenade launchers, large-caliber machine guns and small arms fired at districts n. Leninskoe, Sakhanka and Kominternovo. A total of fourteen mines with a caliber of 120 mm were produced.
According to our data, two Ukrainian servicemen were killed and three were injured as a result of the shelling from the side of the enemy.
The military leadership of Ukraine in the framework of Poroshenko’s election campaign support intensifies the propaganda of alleged victories in the zone of operation of the occupying forces.
Thus, during work in the OOS units, the commander of the ground forces, Popko, and later the acting deputy commander of the occupying forces for moral and psychological support and humanitarian issues, Colonel Kovalenko, set the task of accumulating and actively distributing all kinds of combat video materials. .
At present, video clips demonstrating the alleged success of the Volga Federal University are actively disseminated in the media.
Sometimes Ukrainian propagandists fail in their work, and they post materials about successful actions of the militia against the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the period 2014–2015, posing as their victories today.
We draw the attention of the OSCE Mission to provocative videos distributed by the Ukrainian command, which are not only part of propaganda, but also openly testify to the violation by Kiev of the Minsk agreements.
In the combat zone, the Ukrainian armed forces continue to wage an unequal battle with low-quality alcohol. While alcohol confidently comes and wins, “valiant warriors of light” suffer great non-combat losses in manpower and weapons.
At the Kramatorsk airfield, three Ukrainian anti-aircraft gunners performing tasks to cover the command post, out of habit, went over with a surrogate and decided to play with the Igla portable anti-aircraft missile system. Gun games never lead to good.
As a result of an unintentional shot from MANPADS, one of the storage sites caught fire. The fire destroyed: three “Igla” MANPADS, ten missiles to them, two machine guns and a thousand rounds of 7.62 mm caliber.
In the documents on the write-off of weapons, ammunition and property destroyed as a result of a fire, in addition, the command of the anti-aircraft missile battalion pointed out stolen two thousand rounds of 7.62 mm caliber, one thousand rounds of 5.45 mm caliber and five Archer thermal imagers.
At the forefront, too, was not without non-combat losses. Two Ukrainian militants, pretty much taken “on the chest”, quarreled on the basis of their attitude to the ongoing civil war, first went into hand-to-hand, then one of them grabbed the weapon.
As a result of a drunken skirmish, a senior Kogan soldier mortally wounded his drinking companion Sergeant Rudnik. The deceased was attributed to suicide.
