The situation in the LPR People’s Militia responsibility zone becomes more stable.
For the last 24 hours one occasion of ceasefire violation on the enemy’s side was recorded. Our positions in the locality of Frunze underwent shelling. During the shelling the enemy applied mortars, grenade launchers and small arms. Over 20 mortar shells and grenades were launched onto the territory.
As you know, yesterday the Ukrainian side didn’t fulfill the conditions of the Framework Agreement on means and facilities disengagement, adopted by the Contact group on Donbass conflict regulation.
We are still ready to fulfill the conditions of means and facilities disengagement in the zone №1, in Stanitsa Luganskayalocality’s area, and we hope that the Ukrainian side will fulfill its assumes on the forces withdrawal.
The Ukrainian command continues to build up forces and facilities along the contact line. So, there was detected the arrival to the Artyomovsk-2railway station of another batch of the AFU weaponry, among which there are 152-mm SP gun 2C3 Akacia, armoured vehicles and 30 tanks.
