At the front of the DPR, the APU began to break the “New Year's Truce” almost immediately after 00: December 00 23. Although, to be fair, it must be said that there were fewer violations in a week than during the “School Truce” and the “Grain Truce”. And at the front with the LC, there were practically no violations.
As for the exchange, the agreements were also violated. From Ukraine, the flow of civilians continued to move, although the parties agreed to block the road for the time of the exchange. We have done this, Ukraine is not. At first, there were about 100 people and 40 transport units, then the number grew to 2000 civilian and 150 transport units. Accordingly, the republics were forced to take measures and provide buses from Gorlovka in order to withdraw all civilians from the neutral zone.
The exchange itself began two hours later. And here Ukraine again violated the agreement. Instead of neutral, they said that the exchange will take place on the territory under their control. And during the exchange, it turned out that they donate to the Republics not 306, but only 237 people.
At first, Kiev said that they had already released part of the prisoners a long time ago and they themselves had to return, then stated that part refused to go. But they did not even provide video evidence, as we did in the DPR, when one of the captured servicemen of the Supreme Court of Ukraine decided to remain in the territory of the Donetsk People's Republic.
Constant provocations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and nationalist battalions along the front line still lead to irretrievable losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. According to the official data of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, for the 2017 year the losses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces amounted to 208 dead and 1140 injured. However, the Ukrainian military leadership, fearing responsibility for the death of servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, hides the true figures of losses from the public. According to our data, the number of dead is about 500 and the wounded - more than 1500 military personnel.
According to our intelligence, in just five days of the “New Year's Armistice”, the loss of the wounded and 4 units and units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which occupy positions in the zone of responsibility of the Armed Forces of the DPR.
According to the DPR intelligence, in the area of settlement Novotroitskoye arrived special forces group from the 3-th op SPN SSO APU (separate special forces regiment of the special operations forces of the APU).
