The armed formations of Ukraine violated the ceasefire once over the past 24 hours, trying to provoke retaliation from the LPR People’s Militia military, the LPR PM’s press service reported on January 27.
“At 16:20, Ukrainian militants from the 93rd brigade using automatic grenade launchers engaged the village of Smeloye, having fired 29 rounds. Apparently, in anticipation of the Minsk meeting, the joint forces operation’s command staff decided to step up attacks on the LPR, which questions Zelensky’s promise of a ceasefire in Donbass.
Despite the fact that the OSCE Mission gives high priority to the monitoring of weapons prohibited by the Minsk Agreements on the Ukrainian side, the joint forces operation’s command staff decided to use electronic warfare equipment. We detected the operation of a Bukovel-AD EW station from the 20th separate EW battalion in the responsibility zone of the 93rd AFU brigade near Prichepilovka. It was jamming the control signals of the OSCE Mission’s drone over the AFU-controlled territory near Krymskoye and Novotoshkovskoe. Earlier, our intelligence spotted the operation of EW maneuvering units in the responsibility zone of the 72nd and 59th AFU brigades,” the LPR PM’s press service informs.
