The Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to violate the agreements on the ceasefire regime in the Donbass. In this regard, the DPR servicemen were allowed to suppress the firing points of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
This was reported by the press service of the People's Militia of the DPR on March 3.
Subdivisions of the People's Militia were given permission to conduct preemptive fire to suppress and destroy enemy firing points.
- the press service of the NM DNR informs.
The armed forces of the Republic note that the Ukrainian military is violating the ceasefire at the moment when the meetings of the Contact Group on Donbass are being held.
The People's Militia of the DPR explains their decision by the fact that the actions of the Armed Forces do not allow the implementation of the Minsk armistice agreements, and the frequent shelling from the Ukrainian side is regularly ignored by international observers.
Therefore, the DPR servicemen, in order to protect the civilian population of the republic from Ukrainian shelling, will be forced to suppress and destroy the firing points of the Ukrainian army.
Since the beginning of the year, the OSCE mission has noted approximately 2,5 violations of the ceasefire. In February, for the first time since June last year, the Ukrainian army used artillery of 122 mm caliber prohibited by the Minsk agreements during shelling. Earlier, the OSCE reported that up to a hundred tanks APUs are absent in places designated for storage.
