DPR People’s Militia spokesman Oleg Nikitin said that over the past day the Ukrainian militants have recorded two violations of the second point of the Complex of Additional Measures to Monitor the Observance of the Ceasefire
In the Donetsk direction, the 93rd brigade, on the order of its commander Bryzhynskyy, opened fire with 120 mm mortars in the area of Novolaspa, releasing twelve mines. In the Mariupol direction, fighters from the 128th Brigade, on the orders of Brigadier Honcharuk, shelled the village of Leninskoye, firing eight grenades from underbarrel grenade launchers.
“Due to unsuccessful attempts to engage a coordination mechanism for a ceasefire by the AFU, in order to protect the lives and health of the population of the Republic, in accordance with point f and e of the RPO reinforcement measures, units of the People’s Militia were forced to return fire from weapons not prohibited by the Minsk agreements to suppress the enemy’s fire activity. As a result of the retaliatory measures, one Ukrainian punisher was killed and two were wounded”, – Nikitin reported.
In addition, the deployment of four units of weapons and military equipment of the Ukrainian armed forces in three settlements in Kiev-controlled territory has been revealed.
