The Donetsk filtration station was occupied by fighters of nationalist battalions, reports the deputy commander of the operational command of the Ministry of Defence of the DPR Eduard Basurin. According to him, after yesterday’s statement by the former commander of the “Azov” regiment Biletsky they completely left from under the control of the Ukrainian president and began a new round of combat operations in Donbass.
“From this area the opponent used mortars and large-caliber machine guns. At the same time, they fired them from the premises of the station not only on our positions, but also on the residential districts of Yasinovataya and Spartak. Knowing that our divisions adhere to the Minsk Agreements and don’t open fire at critical infrastructure, the enemy feels that they have complete impunity,” said Basurin.
“It is possible to draw the conclusion that the Ukrainian authorities don’t control the situation now and aren’t capable of ensuring the safety of the citizens of Ukraine,” he added.
The representative of Ministry of Defence of the DPR also called on world leaders to condemn Petro Poroshenko’s regime and to remove nationalist battalions from the anti-terrorist operation zone, having fulfilled the written guarantees of March 15, 2016.
