Here is an operative data about situation in the conflict zone from experts of ‘Information Resistance’ group.
During the last day terrorists continued to violate the ceasefire regime – they shelled positions of Ukrainian Armed Forces about 40 times. Luhansk, Debaltsevo and Donetsk direction remain to be the areas of most difficult situation – they have been shelled 12, 12 and 9 times correspondingly.
According to experts of ‘Information Resistance; group, most actively the enemy uses cannon artillery for shelling (10 cases registered), they also use mortars (9 cases of shelling) and multiple rocket launcher systems (7 cases of shelling registered). Fighters and Russian militants used tanks twice.
In Petrovsk district of Donetsk, in areas of Avdiivka and Peski the enemy brings up to strength armed groups ‘Oplot’, ‘Sparta’ and some else that have lost personnel. The groups are completed with Russian mercenaries mostly. The experts register transferring of weapons to these areas (mortar ca;culations and cannon artillery, arrival of at leas two new subdivisions has been registered). In addition, fighters try to establish interaction at the tactical level with fire sub-units and drone groups.
New armed group has been established in the area of Horlivka (commander ‘Botsman’). According to operative data, currently the armed group experiences shortages with armed military equipment and artillery (total number of armored equipment – 12 units including 3 tanks and up to 4 multiple rocket launcher systems). However, the commandment of armed group says it expects serious reinforcement with fighters and heavy military equipment. In Horlivka fighters spread rumors that they would soon return the settlement of Uglehirsk under their control (experts suppose that this might be done in order to misinform Ukrainian troops and force them to weaken their positions on the other parts of Debaltsevo bridgehead).
