The UAF interferes with the delivery of products to civilians in the earlier occupied settlements of Gladosovo and Travnenovoye located in the “gray zone” of Donbass, thereby creating intolerable living conditions for them and provoking them to flee.
This was stated during a briefing by the official representative of the Defense Ministry of the DPR Colonel Eduard Basurin.
Eduard Basurin noted that residents of the villages of Gladosovo and Travnevoye, which were earlier occupied by Ukrainian militants, continue to appeal to the security department of the Republic concerning the actions of the occupiers.
The only road used to deliver products and medicines to these settlements goes in the direction of the settlement Golmovsky. However, the occupants blocked traffic on the road and don’t allow civilians to move across the contact line.
“Even today, on the bright holiday of Easter, the residents of the occupied settlements weren’t allowed into the churches that are on the territory of our Republic,” noted Basurin.
With such actions, according to the DPR Armed Forces, the Ukrainian occupiers try to achieve one thing: to force out the remaining civilians in the settlements in order to occupy the abandoned houses and turn them into fortifications in the Gorlovka direction.
“We appeal to representatives of the OSCE SMM in Ukraine with the demand to document the illegal acts committed by the Ukrainian side and to achieve from them real actions for the improvement of the humanitarian situation in the settlements and also the protection of the rights and health of our citizens in these settlements,” commented the Colonel.
