The 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.
Despite the great Orthodox holiday – the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary – over the past 24 hours, the enemy violated the cease-fire 18 times. Shots from the Ukrainian armed forces were subjected to areas of 12 settlements of the Republic.
In the Gorlovka direction, the militants of the 30th mechanized brigade under the command of the war criminal Garaz fired weapons of infantry fighting vehicles, small arms, including large-caliber, Dolomitnoe and Gorlovka areas.
As a result of the shelling, the damage was received to a residential building at the address: ul. Marshal Grechko, 40.
In the Donetsk direction, from the positions of the 93rd and 24th mechanized, 57th motorized infantry and 35th brigade of marines under the command of war criminals Bryzhinsky, Gudzya, Mishanchuk and Palas fired 120 mm and 82 mm mortars, weapons of infantry fighting vehicles, grenade launchers and small arms in the settlements: Yasinovataya, Mineralnaya, Dokuchaevsk, Aleksandrovka, pos. Trudovskie Petrovsky district of Donetsk, Zhabichevo, Vesele, Spartak and the airport area of Donetsk.
In total, in this direction, the enemy released twenty-two mines with a caliber of 120 mm and eight mines with a caliber of 82 mm.
In the Mariupol direction, militants of the 79th Air Assault Brigade under the command of the war criminal Kurach fired at a 120-mm caliber settlement of October. In total in the locality, the enemy released eight mines with a caliber of 120 mm.
The enemy’s gun emplacements were destroyed by return fire from non-prohibited weapons. The enemy’s losses were: two dead and three wounded.
The Ukrainian command, taking advantage of the distraction of the attention of the world community from the conflict in the Donbas to the presidential race in Ukraine, has stepped up armed provocations along the entire contact line.
It is noteworthy that the increase in the number of violations “in a strange way” coincides with the arrival of various kinds of international organizations in the “EP” zone. An example of this is the visit of the Lithuanian delegation headed by the Lithuanian ambassador to Ukraine M. Yanukonis, who from April 6 to 10 will monitor the situation in the conflict zone.
On March 19, he had already arrived at the Donbass, and that visit was also characterized by a significant increase in the number of violations by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
We note that during the period of such visits, the Ukrainian commanders intensify attacks on populated areas of the Republic, striking vital infrastructure and social facilities.
So, on March 19 as a result of shelling n. Golmovsky damaged four houses and damaged the glazing of the functioning secondary school No. 77. On April 6, on the day of the visit of the Lithuanian delegation, a civilian was injured and city hospital No. 21 of Donetsk was damaged.
Thus, the Ukrainian military command uses the visits of foreign delegations to demonstrate to the world public the strengthening of the armed confrontation in the Donbas, to obtain additional financial and material resources, as well as attempts to force us to respond to armed provocations.
I dare to assure Ukrainian commanders of the futility of such provocations, due to the fact that we are not firing at residential areas and livelihoods, and we are firing back at the positions of the enemy who dared to direct the weapon towards the Republic.
