FULL MILITARY SITUATION REPORT/VIDEO FROM THE HIGH COMMAND OF THE DPR PEOPLE'S ARMY COL. EDUARD BASURIN !
Yesterday, from Mariupol the enemy again undertook actions proving once again their lies, lies and false statements by the Ukraine Junta authorities about the Minsk agreements’ observance and their so-called intention to settle the conflict in Donbass peacefully ! A mockery And A Criminal War Waged On The People Of Donbass !
After 9 pm, Two Nazi Ukraine Units,10-strong enemy subversive and reconnaissance groups attempted to advance through the so-called ‘grey zone’ in the vicinity of Kominterno locality under the cover of heavy mortar fire. Both groups were promptly identified by our observers. Having assessed the situation and reported to the People's Army Command, units of the DPR Armed Forces forced the enemy to withdraw, opening fire on the adversary units from small arms. Having suffered losses, as six servicemen were killed and three wounded, Nazi Ukrainian saboteurs retreated. The sabotage groups’ actions were supported by mortar shelling from the positions of the 59th separate motorized infantry brigade of the Nazi Ukrainian Armed Forces, both at our positions and at residential buildings in the localities of Leninskoye, Kominternovo, Zaichenko, Sakhanka and Oktyabr. The fire had been adjusted with a drone that was shot down.
Earlier, I have repeatedly stated the provocative actions being prepared by the ‘ATO’ headquarters. They are intended to provoke back fire from our positions, shelling their own positions and then directing blame on the DPR Army, , initiate active response actions and record these so-called facts under the control of Ukrainian Junta media. Provocations are aimed at accusing the DPR Armed Forces of unwillingness to implement the Minsk agreements.
The DPR Armed Forces’ Command considers it likely that this kind of provocation will be repeated by the Nazi Ukrainian Armed Forces, and we are ready for an adequate response within the reached agreements.
