IR summary: the command of the occupiers cannot solve the problems associated with "reservists training"

Operational data of the group "Information Resistance"

The occupiers completely ignore the so-called "Easter truce". During the last weekend (31.03-01.04.2018), the enemy opened fire on different sectors of the front line, including using heavy weapons (120-mm mortars).

In particular, from the positions between Kalinovka and Logvinovo, the invaders fired by 120-mm mortars at the advanced positions of the AFU south of Svetlogorsk and Lugansk; the AFU positions along the Bahmut-Debaltsevo highway were also fired by 120 mm mortars from the area south of the height of 307.9. Also, the enemy throughout the area from the vicinity of the DAP to the positions on the "Almaz" actively used small arms, AGS, SPG, and 82-mm mortars were used. In the area between the air shaft of the Putilovskaya mine (Butovka mine) and the positions on Almaz, the raid infantry group of enemy, acting along the unfinished section of the ring road, attempted to fire the advanced positions of the AFU on the Almaz from the neutral zone. The group was pushed back to the initial line with the response fire of the armed guard of the AFU unit; the occupants were covered the withdrawal of this group by the fire of large-caliber machine guns and 82-mm mortars.

The occupation command continues to regroup its forces and assets:

- In the Lugansk region (LNR), the movement of a 6-gun battery of 152-mm howitzer type 2A65 Msta-B, 1 MT-LB, 3 trucks Ural and 1 UAZ-469 was fixed in the Ivanovka area along the highway to the north of the settlement Hrustalniy (former Krasny Luch);

- In the Petrovsk district of Donetsk, the occupants continue to equip new, hidden positions in the area of dumps at Trudovskie. The equipment of positions for mortars is fixed. There is an increase in the number of infantry, which occupies positions along Petrovskiy Street and north of the Osykovka River;

- The enemy strengthens its grouping on the ledge of Veselaya Gora to the north of Metallist. To the north of Lugansk, there was a column of light armored vehicles of the invaders in the direction of the front line - 6 units of BMP-1/2 and 3 units of MT-LB. In an hour, 3 units of BTR-80 have moved in the same direction;

- In the framework of the general strengthening of the Pervomaisk enemy formation, the invaders actively strengthen the engineering approaches to the city. The equipment of the battalion defense area continues in the area of Molodezhnoe and along the northern edge of the Lesnoe. There are new positions for fire weapons (mortar positions and positions for large-caliber machine guns, air defense weapons and SPG / ATGM), several new caponiers for armored vehicles appeared;

- On the Mariupol direction in a landing along the southern outskirts of the village Pikuzy (former Kominternovo), there is a placement of additional fire weapons by the enemy is recorded, ZU-23-2 AD system in the truck Ural and at least 2 large-caliber machine-guns of the "Utes" type, located in the trenches and disguised.

After the destruction the truck Ural with ammunition from the 7th separate mechanized brigade of the enemy from the ATGM by the advanced unit of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the vicinity of Nizhny Lozovoy on Sunday, the occupiers quickly began to conduct an information operation on the incident, spreading information that the Ural was allegedly "medical". However, according to eyewitnesses, ammunition in the destroyed allegedly "medical" Ural detonated for at least 30 minutes, with a large scatter of fragments.

According the reports of the command of a number of brigades of the "1st Army Corps DNR", there is a "very acute situation" with the drivers in the units and subunits of the Corps. For example, the Kalmius artillery brigade, the 100th Brigade and a number of units of the 5th and 7th separate mechanized brigade have a shortage of experienced drivers. In these brigades there are 3-4 units of vehicles for one or two drivers that must "go out on alert state ". In many cases, the invaders come out of the situation, attracting "servicemen" who are not registered as drivers and who are in other positions (up to the commanders) or "temporarily mobilized" civilian drivers to the management of motor vehicles.

In turn, in the "2nd Army Corps LNR", the command is actively looking for "auto mechanics" or drivers with the skills of "medium repair of trucks". These searches are caused by the fact that the rates of failure of vehicles exceed the repair capabilities directly in the brigades and even on the scale of the entire 2nd Army Corps.

During the ongoing "reservists training", the command of both Corps faced an acute shortage of supplies and material and technical resources for their provision. Extremely negative resonance among the personnel in the units and subunits of the 1st Army Corps caused the order of the command to "hand over the uniform of the 2015 year of issue for the needs of the reservists ". Both ordinary militants and Russian mercenaries, and unit commanders are extremely perplexed about this, pointing to complete ignorance of the real situation in units and subunits by the command - the fact is that even the now formed units are experiencing serious difficulties on the clothing allowance, not to mention the certain "excesses" or even the presence of "clothing of the year 2015", which has long been worn out.

Representatives of the "LNR military registration and enlistment offices" tried to collect about 200 miners of the coal enterprise "Sverdlovanthracite" for "reservists training". As a result, despite promises of payment of 500 rubles per day for the stay at the "training", the miners refused to go to "training" and threatened with physical reprisals to the representatives of the "military registration and enlistment offices". A similar situation arose at the enterprise "Rovenkyanthracite" and other mines of the coal industry in the occupied areas of Donbass.

The leadership of the “DNR” asked the Russian "curators" to resolve the issue of deliveries of additional batches of vaccine against hepatitis A from the Russian Federation, as it was said in the appeal, "in connection with the threat of an epidemic." Also, the leadership of the “DNR” promises that the vaccination of the population will be free.

The shipment of scrap metal continues by motor and railway transport from the occupied territory to the Russian Federation. So, only for the last day up to 10 Kamaz loaded with metal passed through the checkpoint "Dolzhansky" to Russia. In addition, in the southern occupied areas of the Lugansk region, metal is exported to the Russian Federation bypassing the border checkpoints. This is done in order not to pay bribes to militants and border guards of the Russian Federation.
