According to the reconnaissance of Donetsk People’s Militia, Ukrainian forces redeployed two units of MRLS “Tochka U” missiles to Avdeyevka. Six more were sent to Novobakhmutovka settlement and routed to the contact line. The enemy continue to strengthen it’s positions and redeploy more heavy weaponry there.
However for the last 24 hours the shelling intensity decreased greatly. The ceasefire was violated approximately 600 times, more than 50 times the weapon prohibited by Minsk Agreement was applied.
The following localities were shelled: the northern districts of Donetsk and Makeyevka, Gorlovka’s outskirts and the settlements in the south of the DPR.
“The Ukrainian military-political command refused to follow the Minsk Agreements on the withdrawal of the heavy weaponry from the contact line. Conversely, it started to scale up the army . Our reconnaissance confirms the enemy’s activation. Particularly the enemy’s means and forces concentration near the contact line aimed on shock troop formation had been recorded,” said Eduard Basurin, the vice-commander of the DPR People’s Militia operational command office.
The DPR power-wielding agencies underline that the situation on the contact line remains quite tense despite the relevant inactivity these days.
Taking into account the political tendencies, the conversation between Poroshenko and Trump in particular, one can assume that any minute the shelling intensity will increase and the Ukrainian forces will try to conduct the provocative fire on the DPR cities again.
