“The situation in the DPR remains relatively calm. Separate subdivisions of foreign mercenaries, organizations of the Ukrainian nationalists of Right Sector, and the 93rd mechanized brigade of the UAF are continuing to violate the ceasefire, provoking the armed forces of the DPR to retaliate.

However, we do not succumb to provocations and we abide by the ceasefire. From the Ukrainian side, there have been five violations of the ceasefire in the past day. The village of Spartak and the “Volvo center” in the vicinity of the Donetsk airport, along with the suburbs of Staromikhailovka and Aleksandrovka in the outskirts of the capital, have suffered shelling. 

Ten hits have been recorded on the territory of the city. The militia of the DPR have evacuated from the Beloy Kamenki district (Telmanovsky district) a Ukrainian tank with American equipment. One of their tanks, equipped with a Motorola radio of American manufacture, was thrown away at the front when the Ukrainian military fled. The tank was evacuated by our forces and will soon be restored and deployed as a weapon among the divisions of the army of the DPR.”
