The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have rotated the personnel of the 58th brigade because of the unwillingness of servicemen to take part in the so-called “Anti-Terrorist Operation”, the contact line with Donbass militia points. 

This was announced today at the briefing by the official representative of the People’s Militia of the People’s Republic of Lugansk, Lieutenant Colonel Andrei Marochko.

“According to our intelligence, in some areas, the armed forces are systematically abandoning their positions. This is due to the lack of adequate food security and the unwillingness of servicemen to continue participating in hostilities on the side of the government that betrays them,” Marachko said.

“There has been an unauthorized abandonment of the temporary deployment point in the Krimskoe settlement, by servicemen of the 15th battalion of the 58th separate motorized infantry brigade,” he said.

“The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, in connection with the low morale and psychological state of the personnel of the 58th brigade, decided to rotate it from the o called anti-terrorist operation zone,” Marachko said.
