Over the past 24 hours, Ukrainian militants opened fire on districts of settlements in the Republic 13 times.
In the Gorlovka direction, the punishers of Kashchenko from the 58th brigade and Shapovalov from the 59th brigade fired 120 and 82 mm mortars, anti-tank and automatic grenade launchers, heavy machine guns, and small arms at the districts of Zaitsevo (southern) and Dolomitnoye.
In the Donetsk direction, the 28th brigade, led by Marchenko, fired anti-tank grenade launchers at the area of Aleksandrovka.
In the Mariupol direction, militants from Gnatov’s 36th brigade and Korostylev’s 128th Brigade fired 82 mm mortars, anti-aircraft vehicles, anti-tank and automatic grenade launchers, heavy machine guns, and small arms at the areas of Leninskoye, Dzerzhinskoye, Kominternovo and Kulikovo.
In total, Ukrainian militants fired 115 rounds of ammunition at the Republic.
Information abut civilian casualties and destruction is being clarified.
Ukrainian armed groups continue to strengthen their fortifications along the entire contact line, which once again confirms the plans of the criminal command to disrupt the process of resolving the conflict peacefully by disengaging forces and means in the near future.
During work aimed at fortifying equipment at positions in the zone of responsibility of the 92nd brigade in the area of Verkhnetoretskoye, 2 brigade fighters received wounds incompatible with life as a result of safety violations while using trench charges. According to tradition, the brigade command presented this as non-combat losses as the result of shelling.
Following the announcement by the OUF headquarters of official proceedings in relation to the illegal presence of armed nationalist gangs in Donbass, the commander of the occupation forces, Kravchenko, ordered the commanders of the saboteur and reconnaissance group “East” and “North” to deploy operational HQs to disarm and apprehend the nationalists.
At present, we note the intensification of the activities of the SBU at disengagement of forces and means site No. 3 in the area of Petrovskoye. In addition, a joint special forces unit from the 8th separate special forces regiment of the special operations forces under the leadership of Lieutenant Colonel Mitrofanov has been put on “full” alert.
In turn, the nationalists started to carry out the terrorist attacks planned by their leaders, in particular, as a result of one of them, yesterday the cellular communication base station in Donetsk was damaged.
In addition, thanks to the endurance and unquestioned execution of orders by our defenders and the professionalism of People’s Militia scouts, we managed to avoid another cynical provocation.
Thus, on 26th October, on the eve of the meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group scheduled for October 29th in Minsk, unscrupulous radical militants, accompanied by Ukrainian media, brought a bus with children to the contact line in the area of the Avdeevka industrial zone under the pretext of shooting a propaganda program.
After that, in the hope that our defenders fire back, under the cover of the fog, the punishers of the 92nd brigade fired rocket-propelled grenades and heavy machine guns at our positions in the area. Having not achieved retaliatory fire, the militants moved to Plan B, for which the military criminal Kokorev assigned the task to the commander of the 3rd battalion to open fire at the area where the children and journalists were at that time. Thanks to the remnants of officer honour in individual officers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the criminal plans of the radicals were not destined to come true, since upon learning about the presence of children, the officer forbade the opening of fire at the specified area.
The cynicism of the bloody Ukrainian regime, whose next victims were supposed to be children, is striking.
