Operational data of the group “Information Resistance”

Russian occupation forces in the Donbas continue to shell the positions of the Joint Forces and settlements. During the week, the number of attacks per day is 10-15. At the same time, the formations of the occupants use automatic small arms, large-caliber machine guns, mounted and hand-held grenade launchers, and 82 mm and 120 mm mortars, 122 mm and 152 mm cannon artillery, anti-aircraft guns and standard weapons of combat armored vehicles.

The main areas of fire activity of the occupants continued to be – the area of the Bakhmutka route (from Krymskoe to Novotoshkovka), the areas of Popasnaya and Pervomaisk, separate sections of the Svetlodarsk “arc”, the area of the northern and north-western suburbs of Gorlovka, the area between Avdeevka and Yasinovataya, the northern and north-western outskirts of Donetsk, as well as the area adjacent to the coast on the Mariupol direction.

The command of the occupation forces sharply intensified reconnaissance by technical means – using UAVs, EW stations and optical-electronic devices. The use of portable radars for ground reconnaissance is fixed in some cases. The enemy continues to actively use the trained sniper groups for firing of advanced positions of JF units from the neutral “gray” zone by special fire groups and special operation teams.

In some areas, the work by personnel of the occupational formations as part of the upgrading of engineering positions is recorded, with the involvement of both military and civil engineering equipment.

The prospect of deploying brigade anti-aircraft missile battalions of the OCA-AKM air defense system (in some cases even Pantsir-1C) is discussed at the headquarters of the 1st Army Corps “DPR” and the 2nd Army Corps “LPR”. A number of organizational changes and the formation of relevant units will begin in near future.

In Donetsk, Donetsk Metallurgical Plant fully ceased production activities, all existing equipment was suspended, and workers were sent on unpaid leave.

In Donetsk, the mine workers of the mine named after A. Skochinsky were sent on unpaid leave due to the collapse of the metal bridge between the sorting department and the skip shaft.

The management of Branch No. 2 of Enakievo Metallurgical Plant CJSC Vneshtorgservis intends to reduce to 30% of the plant’s employees due to the lack of funds for maintenance and overhaul of appropriate conditions for servicing production facilities, lack of sales markets and raw materials supply.
