We have information about the disposal of the Donetsk civilian-military administration Head Zhebrivsky to the heads of the district administrations, controlled by the AFU territories, about holding meetings with local residents of the front-line settlements this week. During the meetings, the authorities should tell about the forthcoming shelling, allegedly, from the territory of the Donetsk People's Republic. At the same time, the population is required, answering the questions of Ukrainian journalists, to blame the army of the DPR.
Our intelligence has already recorded the holding of such meetings in Volnovakha and Dzerzhynsk (Toretsky) districts. In particular, on June 12 there was a meeting with the residents in the village of Blizhneye of the Volnovakha district, where a representative of the Ukrainian authorities demanded that local residents would approve in front of media after the shelling, that the fire was conducted from the territory of the Donetsk People's Republic, even if the residents hadn’t seen it.
We link these facts to the briefings of local residents with the Ukrainian military preparing and conducting shellings of the localities as it was on the night of today of the village of Sukhaya Balka, where one civilian perished. At the same time, the DPR Army units did not fire, strictly and unswervingly observing the Minsk agreements.
According to our intelligence, in the shelling of residential areas of settlements on the territory controlled by the AFU, nationalist battalions are involved. In particular, the work of mobile groups of the Battalion ‘Donbass’ in the Dzerzhinsk district, temporarily dislocated in the locality of KONSTANTINOVKA, on the territory of industrial shops of the enterprise "Megatex" (on Kalinina Street 1a). Departures of fire groups are carried out at night. Shellings of settlements are conducted from areas close to the contactline. In the Volnovakha region, the "Right Sector" unit fires its territories.
In the responsibility zone of the 3rd battalion of the 72nd brigade in the vicinity of the settlement of ADEVEVKA there was revealed a unit from among the 95th brigade, arrived for artillery reconnaissance.
This reconnaissance unit is equipped with an automated sound system "Tembr", designed to control the shooting of its own artillery, and also has the ability to fix and determine the coordinates of artillery performing fire tasks in a given band.
Thus, the “ATO” headquarters decided to fight against provocative shelling of its positions and settlements on Ukrainian territory by uncontrolled units of nationalists operating in the conflict zone. On the basis of recorded facts of unauthorized shellings from the positions of Ukrainian military, proceedings will be conducted with subsequent punishment of those responsible.
