The situation in the responsibility zone of the LPR People's Militia underwent no essential changes and remains tense.
Over the past day, the enemy committed seven violations of the ceasefire.
Our units' positions near the localities of Smeloye, Logvinovo, Sanzharovka. Kalinovo and Kalinovka were shelled. When attacking, the AFU applied mortars of 120mm and 82mm calibre, anti-aircraft mounts ZU-23-2, IFV cannons, recoilless antitank guns, and small arms. In total, 178 projectiles and shells were launched onto the Republic's territory.
The AFU do not cease reconnaissance along the entire contact line with application of unmanned aerial vehicles, which is prohibited by the Minsk Agreements. Thus, in the vicinity of Schastie village, in the responsibility zone of the 14th AFU brigade, a drone was detected when conducting reconnaissance along the contact line. We can conclude that the AFU command plans to carry out a criminal provocative shelling with the use of both artillery and mortars in this direction.
The level of the moral and psychological state keeps decreasing in the ranks of the armed forces of Ukraine. This was confirmed by another fact of desertion from the AFU units' ranks.
Thus, it became known that the command of the 24th separate mechanized AFU brigade was conducting an investigation into the fact of unauthorized leaving of the brigade's base by a servicemen who left, having taken with him a regular small arms – AK-74 assault rifle and ammunition. So far, the soldier's location has not been established.
Along with that, according to our reconnaissance, on May 25, the 14th separate mechanized brigade deployed in the vicinity of Schastie locality expects the arrival of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry's chief inspection which is to check the accounting of personnel and assess the morale and psychological state of servicemen in connection with the increased cases of desertion and traumas.
The LPR People's Militia does not relax vigilance and gives priority to security issues.
We adhere to the 'silence regime' and observe the Minsk agreements. Our actions are aimed at resolving the conflict in Donbass peacefully, but in case of the situation's aggravation, we reserve the right to take decisive actions to liberate the territories seized by Kiev bandits.
