Marochko noted that, despite the statements of Ukraine about the observance of the "school truce", introduced from 00.00 hours 25 August 2017, the APU did not stop shelling the territory of the Republic.
In addition, we have noted the increased activity of the sniper groups of the 58 and 10 teams of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the areas of settlements Novotoshkovskoe and Zolotoe. Also in a number of settlements, the enemy intensified reconnaissance activities using unmanned aerial vehicles and reconnaissance groups.- declared Marochko.
Thus, in the area of the settlement Zhelobok, during the passage over our positions, the unmanned aerial vehicle 58 of the AFU brigade was forced to land- he said -
These facts indicate that the Ukrainian leadership does not intend to comply with the Minsk agreements and is preparing to escalate the conflict in the Donbas.
We do not give in to provocations, but we do not lose vigilance. In the case of gross violations by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, they are ready to give a decent response to the aggressor.- declared Marochko.
Recall that the participants of the Contact more than ten times since the fall of 2014 have announced agreements to comply with the "silence regime" in the region. Kiev security forces repeatedly violated the terms of the ceasefire, including firing from large-caliber guns, mortars and guns tankswhich should have been allotted in accordance with the Minsk agreements.
