Donetsk Situation Report, 25.10.2018

For the past day, there have been recorded TWENTY-ONE violations of the cease-fire by the enemy who has shelled the areas of FOURTEEN settlements.

In the Gorlovka direction, from the positions of the 72nd motorized and 58th motorized infantry brigades, under the command of the war criminals TATUS and DRAPATOV, the enemy opened fire from grenade launchers, large-caliber machine guns and small arms on the areas of the settlements of ZAYTSEVO, GOLMOVSKY, SHIROKAYA BALKA, DOLOMITNOYE, and the GAGARIN mine.

In the Donetsk direction, the military of the 92nd and 28th motorized brigades, under the command of KOKOREV and MARCHENKO respectively, as well as the 56th motorized infantry brigade, under the command of IVANOV, used weapons of infantry fighting vehicles, grenade launchers, large-caliber machine guns and small arms to shell the settlements of ALEXANDROVKA, STAROMIKHAYLOVKA, YASINOBATAYA, KRUTAYA BALKA, KASHTANOVOYE, and the TRUDOVSKAYA mine.

In the Mariupol direction, the criminals of the 79th airborne brigade, on the order of KURACH, launched THIRTEEN 122-mm artillery shells, THIRTY-EIGHT 120 and 82-mm mortar shells, made FIVE shots from a tank on the areas of the settlements of NOVAYA TAVRIYA, LENINSKOYE and SAKHANKA, and also used grenade launchers, large-caliber machine guns and small arms.

As a result of shelling by the Ukrainian military, the glazing was damaged in TWO houses in the Petrovsky district of Donetsk, in Udachnaya St, 76, and Bezlesnaya St, 41/1.

In the Mariupol direction, a sniper group consisting of Lithuanian mercenaries was noted in the zone of responsibility of the 15th battalion of the 128th brigade in the area of ​​the settlement of STAROGNATOVKA. According to the information available to us, this group arrived in the UFO zone under the so-called “Ukrainian Safari” program.

According to our intelligence, only last week, two civilians suffered at the hands of the bloodthirsty tourists. At the same time, in order to conceal the very fact of the mercenaries presence, the deceitful Ukrainian media continue to accuse the DPR People's Militia units of these crimes.

We continue to receive information about the AFU non-combat losses.

In particular, at the railway station KHLEBODAROVKA, during the loading of military equipment of the 36th brigade, drunken servicemen of the tank battalion allowed a T-80 tank to overturn from the platform. As a result of the gross safety violations, TWO servicemen who were near the platform, received injuries of varying severity. The driver died of the received injuries.

The command of the 36th Brigade does not report this incident to the UFO headquarters due to the fact that it is no longer possible to blame the DPR People's Militia for these losses, and someone will have to answer for them.

In addition, road accidents caused by the AFU servicemen in "inadequate condition" have become more frequent.

One of the last cases took place in the city of Mariupol at 6 am today. The accident involved DEO Lanos car driven by Captain Bondar who, while intoxicated, collided with a vehicle approaching and carrying two civilians. As a result of the accident, the driver of the oncoming car was killed on the spot, the passenger was injured.

Thus, we see that the level of military discipline and moral decomposition of the Armed Forces of Ukraine leads not only to the death and injury of the military, but also to the death of civilians.
