Dmitry Tymchuk: Updates from the ceasefire zone, 9/15

Dmitry Tymchuk: Updates from the ceasefire zone, 9/15

Operational data from Information Resistance:

Over the past weekend in the combat zone in Donbas the situation remained tense. Russian-terrorist forces did not stop shelling the positions and checkpoints of the Ukrainian units.

The total recorded, for September 13-14, was at least 40 attacks. The greatest amount of activity of insurgents and Russian troops was in the area of Donetsk, Luhansk, Debaltseve, Popasna. A tense situation persists in the area of Mariupol.
Russian-terrorist forces are shelling not only the positions of Ukrainian troops but also civilian targets, primarily the houses of peaceful civilians.

Also, there are cases of “friendly fire” between the insurgents and the regular army units of the Russian Federation. For example, in the area of Debaltseve, ​​terrorists fired artillery at a subversive and intelligence team of Russian troops. Recorded also were skirmishes between groups of local terrorists, including with artillery. According to our data, these incidents are caused by a low level of interaction between the insurgents, as well as between the leadership of the LNR and DNR [Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics] and the Russian command.

There is a decline of local militants in the total number of Russian-terrorist forces inDonbas. Today, the share is 30%, in some districts of the Luhansk region – up to 40%.
