The situation in the Donetsk People’s Republic tends to aggravation.
Over the past day Ukraine’s criminal forces violated ceasefire 1076 times. At that the enemy launched onto the Republic’s territory 106 artillery projectiles of 152mm and 122mm calibre, 326 mortar shells of 120mm and 82mm calibre, and 612 shells from grenade launchers of various types. Besides, IFVs and small arms were used for shelling.
The following Republic’s localities underwent shellings under commanders of the 53rd, 72nd, 92nd separate mechanized brigades of the AFU Gruzevitch, Sololov, Nikolyuk, commander of the 55th artillery brigade Panchenko and commander of the 36th marine brigade Delyatitsky: Zaitsevo, Ozeryanovka, Gorlovka, Mikhailovka, Golmovsky, Shirokaya Balka, Zheleznaya Balka, Yasinovataya, Krutaya Balka, Spartak, Zhabichevo, Aleksandrovka, Staromikhailovka, Kominternovo, Sakhanka, Oktyabr, the area of the Airport and Trudovskiye locality of the Petrovsky district of Donetsk.
Yesterday, at 5 p.m., two children were wounded in the shelling by the Ukrainian Nazis contacted from 120mm and 82mm mortars and antitank grenade launchers from Novoluganskoye locality onto Dolomitnoye locality (in the Nikitovsky district of Gorlovka):
Mironenko Kirill, born in 2014, got a missile wound, and Mironenko Yaroslav, born in 2009, received a psychological trauma.
Besides, one house sustained destructions in Dolomitnoye locality on Zheleznodorozhnaya St. (house №33) and four houses on Smolenskaya, Poletayev, and Bagritsky streets.
The fire at the locality was launched from the positions of the units of the 46th separate special purpose battalion Donbass-Ukraine at the personal order of his commander – Colonel Vlasenko.
Besides, railway tracks in the Nikitovka-Mayorsk direction and power lines along the railroad Yasinovataya-Skotovataya sustained damage as a result of the shellings conducted by Ukrainian nationalist units.
These actions evidence the beginning of implementation of the Ukrainian nationalists’ plans for the economic blockade of Donbass that were voiced by their leaders a bit earlier. Including, due to sending to buffer zones along the contact line of troops the ‘ATO’ veterans who had proved themselves most cruelly in hostilities against civilians.
It should be noted that the Ukrainian population which is now under control of Ukraine’s puppet government, will be the first to suffer from such a ‘blockade’. In particular, the termination of coal supply from Donbass in winter season as the railway tracks were damaged by Ukrainian military, will mean genocide of their own people.
Our intelligence continues detecting strengthening of the AFU positions near the contact line:
- Near Pobeda (6 km away from contact line) there were detected three 122mm self-propelled artillery mounts ‘Gvozdika’;
- Near Vladimirovka (19 km away from contact line) there were detected 20 units of MRLS ‘Grad’ and ten MRLS ‘Uragan’;
- Near Zelyony Gay (16 km away from the contact line) there were detected 12 MI-8 helicopters with combat arms, two units of MRLS ‘Grad’, five tanks and up to 200 personnel;
- Near Bogdanovka (4 km away from the contact line) there were detected six 120mm mortars.
Redeployment of the forbidden heavy weapons is taking place in the responsibility zone of the 92nd brigade, demonstrating intention of the bloody commander Nikolyuk to get white-washed in the opinion of the high command in any ways, including, by murdering civilians.
But in case of the enemy aggression, we are ready to destroy its plans by adequate actions.
