The situation in the responsibility zone of the LPR People's Militia didn't undergo any essential changes and remains tense.
Over the past 24 hours the enemy committed nine ceasefire violations.
Positions of our units in the vicinities of the localities of Sokolniki, Khorosheye, Zhelobok, Maryevka, Kalinovo, Slavyanoserbsk and Logvinovo underwent shellings. The Armed Forces of Ukraine applied prohibited by the Minsk agreements artillery of 122mm caliber, mortars of 120mm and 82mm caliber, IFVs, anti-aircraft installations, grenade launchers of various kinds and small arms when shelling the territory of the Republic. Altogether, 226 mortar-shells and projectiles were launched onto the territory of the Republic. Three unexploded 120mm mortar-shells were found in the locality of Khorosheye, two unexploded 122mm projectiles - in Frunze Locality.
As a result of provocative shelling by military criminals from among the 1st battalion of the 93rd brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine aimed at provoking counteractions on the part of the LPR People's Militia and so that Ukraine can accuse the LPR of disrupting the 'harvest ceasefire' later, one house-building in the locality of Znamenka on Zhukova Street was damaged and in the locality of Maryevka as a result of Ukrainian sniper's work from among the 2nd battalion of the 24th brigade of the AFU, one civilian was wounded.
We handed over all the data on violations of the Minsk agreements to the representatives of the OSCE and JCCC.
Due to frequent cases of non-battle losses of AFU servicemen when mishandling weapons, the ATO command holds events devoted to order organization of small arms and ammos storage in subordinate units.
Our intelligence revealed a fact of a regular deception of Ukrainian media which tried to turn a soldier who had died due to his dullness into a hero of Ukraine. In particular, it was registered that due to mishandling AKS-74 a contract service soldier Morozova Nadezhda Aleksandrovna died. According to this fact, investigation was held in the unit.
However, to conceal the fact of absurd death, the AFU command told the Ukrainian media about the death of the serviceman, allegedly, as a result of "our" shelling. Besides, we are not insisting on Ukrainian side to confirm its lie we just give those persons who conceal Ukrainian population that we know all the truth to understand.
In the evening of that day, after drinking alcohol drinks, as a result of mishandling weapons, being on the frontline, a soldier Krasyukov Sergei Petrovich wounded himself with an automatic weapon AKS-74.
Due to frequent cases of leaving the unit at will, in the units of the 93rd brigade 'Lugansk', the command analyses the fact why servicemen leave their positions on their own.
It is known that at present time in the 93rd brigade, 23 servicemen are considered as those who left their positions on their own.
The military leadership of Ukraine is not going to comply with the reached agreements on keeping the ceasefire and bends every effort to escalate the situation in Donbass.
We, in our turn, comply with the ceasefire and implement the Minsk agreements. And our actions are aimed at solving the conflict in Donbass by peaceful means.
