The relative calm in the ATO zone persists. Militant infantry groups were observed repositioning in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions, near the settlements of Pervomaisk, Popasna, Orikhove, Krymske, Olenivka and Starohnativka; militants also opened fire in three instances in the Donetsk, Luhansk, and Artemivsk directions of operation.

The new battalion of Russian-terrorist troops, recently moved to the Luhansk area continues receiving reinforcements (the IR group reported on this troop movement previously). Arrival of two armored fighting vehicles and three fuel tanker trucks was observed. New firing positions equipped with 122 millimeter D-30A howitzers have been identified south of the settlement of Stanytsia Luhanska.

Militants continue concentrating forces and resources near the settlement of Starobesheve. Army trucks with three trailer-mounted 120 mm mortars were observed arriving. In the same area, an armored group of three tanks and two APCs was spotted on the move. Russian-terrorist troops are equipping army field depots between Telmanove and Starobesheve; the delivery and stacking of ammunition crates is currently underway.

Four tanks moved towards Yasynuvata from the direction of Donetsk. Two ZU-23-2 mobile anti-aircraft guns arrived in the Petrovskyi district of Donetsk, accompanied by armed personnel dressed as “Cossacks.”

In the coastal areas, a terrorist armored group consisting of five tanks and three BMP-1 and BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles has transferred towards the settlement of Oktyabr.
