MILITARY SITUATION REPORT/VIDEO FROM THE HIGH COMMAND OF THE DPR PEOPLE'S ARMY COL. BASURIN !
There is noted a growing panic among the Nazi Ukraine Units (AFU) servicemen, as well as an increase in the number of objectors in units sent by rotation to the so-called ‘ATO’ zone. Thus, to date, more than 70 servicemen have deserted from the 87th separate airmobile battalion, belonging to the AFU elite. Basically, they are formerly mobilized soldiers, with whom the unit commander Rimarchuk fraudulently concluded contracts without their consent. Information on the most part of the deserted military personnel Rimarchuk is being concealed from the supreme command.
The Nazi Ukrainian Military keeps violating the "harvest truce."
In the Donetsk direction, the enemy targeted 15 localities and adjacent areas with five artillery projectiles of 152mm calibre and 24of 122mm calibre, 16 tank rounds, 75 mortar shells of 120mm calibre and 70 of 82mm calibre.
I would like to once again draw the world's attention to the criminal nature of the actions conducted by the Nazi Ukrainian military. Yesterday, on July 15, at the orders of the commander of the 55th separate artillery brigade, war criminal Brusov, the enemy fired at the DPR territory with 152mm and 122mm artillery from the positions stationed in the residential districts of Krasnogorovka. These actions by Ukrainian criminals are aimed at provoking the DPR Armed Forces into opening response fire whilst events dedicated to the Day of the Metallurgist were taking place in the locality. But I want to note that the DPR units are observing the "harvest truce" and will continue doing this, as well as all the previously reached agreements on the ceasefire regime.
We hope that representatives of the OSCE Mission will take all the necessary measures and demand from the Nazi Ukrainian Military to withdraw heavy weapons, increasingly used by the AFU.
In the Mariupol direction, the enemy fired at six localities and adjacent areas, applying 23 artillery projectiles of 122mm calibre and 25 mortar shells of 120mm and 82mm calibres.
In total, 57 occasions of violations of the ceasefire regime by the Nazi Ukrainian Armed Forces were registered over the past day.
One soldier was wounded whilst fulfilling his duty on protection of the Republic.
Our reconnaissance continues detecting an increase in the number of weapons banned by the Minsk agreements on the contact line. Thus, near Mariupol (16 km to the contact line), there was detected the concentration of 24 tanks.
