Operational data of the group “Information Resistance”
In the period from 20 to 26 March this year, despite the agreements reached on the cease-fire, the intensity of fire strikes on the positions of Ukrainian troops and settlements on the territory controlled by Ukraine increased. In total, units of 1st and 2nd Army Corps of the operational group of the Russian occupation forces carried out up to 70 artillery raids (over the past week period up to 20) by 82/120-mm mortars, infantry fighting vehicles and tanks. The most intense fire strikes were inflicted on the positions of Ukrainian troops in the vicinity of the settlements Kamenka, Avdeevka, Peski, Opytnoe, Troitskoe, Lugansk, Lebedinskoe, Talakovka, Vodyanoe and Shirokino. In addition, the enemy fired on the Ukrainian Armed Forces from small arms in the area of Stanitsa Luganskaya, which is a violation of the agreement on the separation of forces in this area.
The invaders continued to conduct active air reconnaissance of the combat orders of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In the period from 20 to 26 March this year, 12 reconnaissance flights of the UAVs of the RF Armed Forces were recorded, including 2 flights of UAV Orlan-10, which were carried out with a flight to the operational and tactical depth of the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
After the election of the President of the Russian Federation (March 18 this year), units and formations of 1st and 2nd Army Corps of the operational grouping of the Russian occupying forces, as well as other “security agencies” of the occupation forces have been transferred to the daily routine of activity since March 20 this year.
The units and formations of 1st and 2nd Army Corps of the operational grouping of the Russian occupying forces continue to be intensively carried out combat training activities at the “Yuzhniy”, “Centralniy”, “Slavniy”, “Udarniy” and “Primorskiy” military training grounds. At the same time, the main efforts of the enemy are directed to the preparation and conduct of battalion tactical exercises, as well as the submission of a final check for the winter period of training.
In addition, in the temporarily occupied territories of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, the command of the Russian occupation forces continues to carry out measures to clarify the mobilization resource, the training of personnel assigned to posts, the organization of interaction between military units and commissariats, with practical development of issues of alerting the postscript personnel, and the deployment of personnel reception points.
To ensure the activities of units and formations of 1st and 2nd Army Corps of the operational grouping of the Russian occupation forces, about 1,000 tons of fuel were delivered to the railway station Ilovaysk and about 800 tons of fuel to the railway station Krasnaya Mogila from the territory of Russia in the period from March 20 to 26 of this year.
In Gorlovka, the invaders are actively looking for “persons with medical education” to staff the 3rd separate mechanized brigade. The brigade suffers a catastrophic shortage of doctors.
In the same 3rd Brigade of the occupants in Gorlovka, a number of units were switched to dry-meal for several days because of the inability to provide hot meals to personnel directly in the places of deployment. On the assurance of the command, these difficulties are extremely temporary.
In Donetsk, the “rapid reaction” units of the “MIA DNR” have been transferred to the barracks regime and are in high alert. The reason for these events is unknown at this time.
In Debaltsevo, “DNR law enforcers” carried out a series of round-ups and arrests of “militia veterans” who had links to the former “field commander” of the militants Sviridov (“Machete”). At least ten militants were detained.
The epic continues with the checking of computers and gadgets of militants and Russian mercenaries in several units of the 1st Army Corps. The use of “mobile communication devices” during office hours is forbidden. For violation of the order, the command promises the most stringent penalties.
The Command of the 1st and 2nd Army Corps selects commanders of units for retraining on the basis of the Southern Military District of the RF Armed Forces. The selected candidates do not express their desire to go to the Russian Federation because, according to the stories of people who returned from “retraining”, Russian instructors refer to the contingent from the “LDNR” as “second-class people”, regardless of rank, position and “combat merit”. Russian instructors themselves, in the opinion of the militants, do not have any combat experience, so “retraining” does not make sense.
In the units of the 1st Army Corps, the “political officers” and a number of commanders launched a broad campaign to eradicate “systematic violations of military discipline”. They use “shameful stands” under the general motto “They disgrace our unit”, some “educational fines” and even threats of “early dismissal” (in the conditions of growing unemployment in depressed towns and villages in the occupied territory, this threat is perceived painfully).
