Ukrainian security forces involved in the ATO [anti-terrorist operation], provided the full range of measures aimed at stabilizing the situation in the zone of the anti-terrorist operation, on the day of the [Presidential] elections.

Tasked with special actions, Ukrainian security forces conducted an operation to neutralize the group of insurgents that sought to disrupt the elections in one of the districts in the northern part of Luhansk Oblast [region]. As a result of the actions by Ukrainian soldiers, 13 terrorists were detained and another two were killed.

From the terrorists were seized 12 automatic machine guns and a portable Kalashnikov assault rifle. According to previous data, the terrorists’ weapons have a “Crimean” story, that is they were seized during an assault on one of the Crimean [military] bases.

Simultaneously with this, the resistance movement towards the actions of insurgents is currently spreading, as well as is the growing discontent of local inhabitants at separatists who terrorize the inhabitants of the region and bring chaos and lawlessness.

The separatists, feeling the inescapable responsibility for their actions, are taking measures in order to leave the area of the ATO. To this end, at dawn on May 26, terrorists carried out a shootout of one of the block posts in the vicinity of the town of Sloviansk. In response, the Ukrainian security forces used small arms. During the search and raid operations in the area of the block post, two dead militants were found.
