Militants hold tours to destroyed Ukrainian checkpoint #32 and boast their ‘victory neat the settlement of Smile’, - Tymchuk

Coordinator of Information Resistance group Dmytro Tymchuk inform about this on his Facebook page.

According to him, fighters organize so-called information tours to checkpoint #32 for numerous Russian journalists. The checkpoint was established by Ukrainian Armed Forces and they were forced to retreat recently.

According to the data from the experts of Information Resistance group, fighters demonstrate to mass media representatives remnants of destroyed Ukrainian armored military equipment and alleged places of burial of Ukrainian servicemen. During the excursion fighters boast about their great victory at the settlement of Smile.

Previously it was reported that since mid-October fighters had actively begun to attack checkpoint #32 of the National Guard in Luhansk oblasts. Ukrainian militants were encircled and then forced to leave the checkpoint. Official sources report about 10 militants that died in fights at this checkpoint.

It should be noted that there is no unity concerning this situation. National Security and Defense Council traditionally reports that the situation was and is under control. It reported about sending reinforcement for the militants at this checkpoint. However, fighters in their interviews to Ukrainian mass media say that they hardly received this reinforcement and situation was critical.
