Operational data of the group “Information Resistance”
There was a slight decrease in the intensity of fire strikes on the positions of Ukrainian troops and settlements on the territory controlled by Ukraine in the period from September 20 to September 26 this year. At the same time, the enemy increased the intensity of the use of heavy weapons, resumed the use of 152-mm and 122-mm artillery systems and inflicted fire strikes on the positions of Ukrainian troops in all areas of responsibility of the operational-tactical groupings of the Ukrainian Armed Forces “Lugansk”, “Donetsk” and “Mariupol “. The maximum activity of the enemy was observed near the settlements of the Krymskoe, Novotoshkovskoe, Novozvanovka, Peski, Kamenka, Krasnogorovka, Marinka, Pavlopol, Vodyanoe and Shirokino.
The enemy intensified the reconnaissance of the combat orders of the ATO forces. For the indicated period, 12 reconnaissance flights of UAVs were detected, including 6 of them with a fly to the operational-tactical depth of defense of the ATO forces. Also, the work of several maneuvering groups of electronic reconnaissance warfare of the RF Armed Forces was noted in the vicinity of the settlement Mikhailovka and the village Lozovoye.
At the same time, preparations for the October multi-stage command and staff training on the ground in order to work out the issues of conducting offensive operations with the forcing of water obstacles are under way in 1st Army Corps DNR and 2nd Army Corps LNR under leadership of the Commander of 8th Army of Southern Military District of the RF Armed Forces.
Numerous facts of active work of the operational groups of the FSB of the Russian Federation were established and confirmed in the units of both “Army Corps” of LDNR, with the aim of recruiting militants to participate in the armed conflict in Syria as part of Russian private military companies.
Due to the impossibility of solving the problems with completing the number of “brigades” and “separate battalions” by personnel in the 1st and 2nd Army Corps in the Donbass, the command of the 8th Army of the RF Armed Forces decided to conduct recruitment for military service among citizens (both in the occupied territories of Donbass, and in the Russian Federation) who have previous convictions (including unpaid), promising early removal of their convictions and not bringing to criminal responsibility for crimes committed earlier.
In order to ensure the terrorist activity of units and formations of 1st and 2nd Army Corps, about 1600 tons of fuel, up to 10 vehicles and more 10 units of armored vehicles (railway station Rovenky) were delivered from September 20 to 26 from the territory of Russia.
Redeployments of enemy forces and assets over the past 24 hours:
– 8 trucks Ural in two batches with equipment and ammunition moved through Styla to Dokuchaevsk, later – 2 MT-LB and 1 BRM-1K. The transfer was conducted at dusk;
– The invaders are transferring 120-mm and 82-mm mortars in the area of Donetsk (Zhobunki-Vesyoloe, DAP district), as well as BTR-70/80 and BRDM-2M;
– The command of the invaders secretly carried out intensification on the site in the area of its strongpoint east of Shirokino, by transferring to the Sakhanka and the base itself an additional 30 people, at least 2 units of SPG-9/9M and 2 units of BMP-1.
– At least 2 separate battalions of the 1st Army Corps DNR, one of them “Somali”, moved out of Donetsk (according to information that the militants themselves distribute – supposedly for the exercises). The transfer of armored vehicles and motor vehicles from the battalions on the march was fixed in the southern section of the Ring road towards Mosino (2 convoys).
The leadership of so-called “Ministry of Health of the LNR” reached an agreement with representatives of the Russian Federation regarding the delivery of humanitarian aid to the territory of the LNR. So, on September 28, 2017, delivery to the city of Lugansk of medicines (about 2 tons) and several units of medical equipment for the needs of local medical institutions is planned. Responsible for receiving these goods is the so-called “Minister of Health of the LNR” Buneev G.
The leaders of “LNR” take measures to increase the amount of pro-Russian information content in order to further promote anti-Ukrainian propaganda by the instructions of curators from the Russian Federation. In particular, the “Minister of Communications and Mass Media of the LNR” is implementing a project to increase the coverage of the population of the temporarily occupied territory by broadcasting. In the framework of this initiative, the State Unitary Enterprise of the LNR “Broadcasting, Radio Communication and Television Company” was ordered to install two additional broadcast transmitters in Chernukhino and Khrustalny (formerly Krasny Luch). In addition, a complex repair of equipment has begun, which is on the balance of the KRRT, to which employees of LLC Corporation Radiostroy (Moscow, RF) are involved. At the same time, the Russian entertainment television channel “Pyatnitsa” will be launched instead of the closed channel “LifeNews” in the temporarily occupied territory.
