Operational data of the group "Information Resistance"

The enemy does not stop conducting fire strikes on the positions of Ukrainian troops and settlements on the territory controlled by Ukraine. Since yesterday, invaders started to use 152 mm artillery. Over the last week period, units of the 1st and 2nd Army Corps of the operational group of the Russian occupation forces carried out more than 320 fire raids (over the past week period - about 260) from 122mm and 152mm artillery systems, 82/120mm mortars, 122mm portable rocket launchers "Grad-P", infantry fighting vehicles and tanks. The enemy was most intensely fired on the positions of Ukrainian troops near the settlements Novoaleksandrovka, Troitskoe, Luganskoye, Zaitsevo, Pavlopol, Peski, Kamenka, Opytnoe, Avdeevka, Butovka mine, Novotroitskoye, Lebedinskoe, Talakovka, Berdyanskoye, Vodyanoe and Shirokino.

For the last day:

- The occupiers repeatedly opened a massive fire from 152 mm cannon artillery on the positions of Ukrainian troops in the Zaitsevo-Zhovanka-Mayorsk area from positions south-west of Bayrak (Gorlovka region). Strikes were also conducted to the area of private residential buildings. It is characteristic that the enemy tried to correct artillery fire;

- The use of 120-mm mortars is fixed practically in all areas of the ATO zone - except for Pervomayka, Bakhmutka, the area of Schastye-Stanitsa Luganskaya, where the enemy actively uses automatic small arms, heavy grenade launchers and heavy machine guns, occasionally using also 82 mm mortars and  arms of BMP-1/2;

- 122-mm cannon artillery is used by the occupants from the area of Putilovka (2-3 units of 122 mm guns are used in combination with 82 mm mortars at the advanced positions of the AFU in the area of DAP, Peski and Vodyanoe), as well as in the seaside direction (a subdivision of 3-4 units of 122-mm guns opened fire on the advanced positions of the AFU in the Lomakino, Talakovka, Gnutovo districts);

- The use of combat armored vehicles, ZU-23-2 AD systems and UAV for reconnaissance, as well as groups of snipers by invaders is fixed in many sectors of the front line.

The enemy continues to actively conduct aerial reconnaissance of the military formations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. 21 reconnaissance flight UAV of the RF Armed Forces is recorded in the period from 11 to 16 April this year, including 5 flights of the Orlan-10 UAV, which entered the operational-tactical depth of the Ukrainian Armed Forces defense. At the same time, the enemy focused on the opening of the control system, as well as the identification of changes in the combat order of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

A comprehensive inspection for the winter period of training continues in units and subunits of the 1st and 2nd Army Corps of the operational grouping of the Russian occupation forces (started on April 9 this year).

Units and subunits of the 1st and 2nd Army Corps are intensively conduct classes on weapons training, tactical and special training and with the crews of combat vehicles at military training grounds "Yuzhniy", "Tsentralniy", "Slavniy", "Udarniy" and "Primorsky".

With the purpose of compulsory recruitment of units and subunits of the 1st and 2nd Army Corps, the Russian occupation command in the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions began to refine the lists of the available mobilization resource. To this end, the occupation command planned to conduct a number of command and staff mobilization exercises with the involvement of civil enterprises and organizations. Within the framework of these events, military reception centers have deployed at Vostochniy, Tsentralniy and Primorskiy training grounds, and training sessions have been planned the weapons, tactical and special training for the reservists.

For the purpose of monitoring the conduct of mobilization exercises, as well as checking the readiness of weapons and military equipment for the summer period of operation, the integrated commission of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation started to work in the 1st and 2nd Army Corps.

Over the past 24 hours, 4 platforms with wheeled combat armored vehicles, as well as 2 fuel tanks with fuel and lubricants, have arrived at the railway station Ilovaysk. Attention was also attracted by the arrival of the train car with the stacks of boxes. The train car was taken under reinforced protection, the content of the boxes is not known yet.

A wide resonance in the "LNR" was given to the so-called "shelling of parade equipment" on the southeastern outskirts of Lugansk (the region of the aviation and technical museum), which in reality became the result of detonation of ammunition in one of the vehicles in the convoy. The leadership of the "LNR" instructed the controlled media to interpret the incident in such a way that "everyone was warned about preparations for the parade," but the AFU allegedly shelled from 152 mm artillery, using "OSCE snapshots" to conduct fire. At the same time, it is ordered to ignore the fact that either the OSCE or the "military intelligence" of the invaders themselves not fixed any movements of the artillery units of the AFU near the front line.

The Intel department of the 1st Army Corps issued a reconnaissance report on "the arrival of NATO servicemen in the so-called ATO zone for organizing and carrying out provocative bombardments of the positions of the DNR". Immediately after this, the headquarters of the 3rd separate mechanized brigade and the 9th separate mechanized regiment "reported" about the use by Ukrainian troops of some unidentified "foreign guided missiles" (implied by the ATGM with a hint of "Javelins") to the command of the 1st Army Corps. Obviously, the commanders of the units promptly caught the intention of the command of the invaders, focusing on "reconnaissance report".

There are persistent rumors among the residents of the Petrovsk district of Donetsk and the militants in the units occupying positions in the Marinka area and along the southwestern outskirts of Donetsk that "the AFU have collected a huge number of tanks and another" armor" near Marinka and will make a breakthrough soon ". Quite possibly, the impetus for such rumors was the temporary closure of the local CP and harsh measures to protect the rear, undertaken by Ukrainian troops in this area.

In turn, the invaders decided to carefully monitor the movement of private vehicles in the area Starobeshevo - Amvrosievka - Ilovaysk. The events are conducted under the control of the "military counterintelligence" of the invaders, trying to prevent the leakage of information about the passage of columns of military equipment of the occupation troops in this area.

In order to increase the revenues to the budget of the "LNR" due to the "nationalization" of markets that are private property of entrepreneurs, the leadership of the "republic" plans to create a corresponding "state unitary enterprise" in the near future by analogy with the practice of the Russian Federation. This enterprise will deal with the activities of markets located on the territory of the Luhansk region, which is not under control of the Ukrainian authorities, and provide a number of paid services.

The government working group "Republic of Crimea" on the development of cooperation with the People's Republic of China (PR China), reached preliminary agreements with the state and non-governmental organizations of China on the participation of their representatives in the Yalta International Economic Forum (April 19-21), the international forum "Tourist and Cultural Potential of the Republic of Crimea" (tentatively September of this year), as well as the opening of information centers of the occupied Crimea in the PR China.
