Брифинг официального представителя НМ ЛНР за 27.04.2017+English Subtitles
The situation in the responsibility zone of the LPR People’s Militia remains tense. Despite the ceasefire observance declared by the Ukrainian party, the enemy committed four violations over the past day. Our units’ positions in the area of Logvinovo, Pervomaisk, Kalinovo and Almaznoye localities were shelled. During the shelling, 120mm and 82mm mortars, infantry fighting vehicles, grenade launchers and small arms were used. A total of 70 rounds and mortar shells were launched.
We continue detecting another cases of non-combat losses in the AFU ranks. Thus, in the 1st battalion of the 14th AFU brigade deployed near Schastie village, one soldier shot himself in a leg as a result of careless handling of weapons in the state of heavy alcohol intoxication.
Also, losses of military equipment were established in units of the 93rd AFU brigade in the vicinity of Krymskoye locality. Two IFVs were put out of action as a result of negligent treatment on the part of the brigade’s command.
In turn, the LPR People’s Militia does not weaken vigilance and makes the issue of the Republic’s security its priority. Combat training sessions are constantly held for units’ personnel, during which skills and abilities of servicemen are improved in the sphere of conducting defensive battles. We strictly observe the Minsk agreements, but, in case of their failure by the Ukrainian party, we are ready to act decisively.
