IR summary: the leadership of "LDNR" received instructions from the Russian Federation to take up the confrontation against the "Ukrainian occupation"

Operational data of the group "Information Resistance"

The occupiers continue to shell the positions of the AFU and populated areas near the demarcation line. The use of heavy weapons by the enemy is fixed, mainly 120-mm mortars, and a case of fire from 122-mm barrel artillery also recorded (recorded east of Lebedinskoe) on the seaside, where the invaders were inflicted short fire raids by the assets of a 3-gun battery.

In the area of ​​Spartak (Donetsk), the invaders demonstrated a strange tactic of using 120-mm mortars. In particular, the enemy repeatedly opened fire from 3 units of 120-mm mortars at the advanced positions of the AFU in the area of ​​DAP, Opytnoe and Butovka mines, while using also heavy machine guns and heavy grenade launchers to "increase the effect," which in itself looks illiterate from a tactical point of view. It is understandable that in the case of the opening of a fire from heavy (120-mm) mortars the personnel of the advanced Ukrainian units will hide in shelters, leaving only observers to monitor the enemy. Accordingly, the "effect" from the use of machine guns and machine grenade launchers, used simultaneously with heavy mortars, will be zero. Therefore, it is possible that in this case, the invaders are conducting a "break-in" of newly arrived Russian mercenaries who do not have combat experience.

The redeployment of a pair of 122-mm self-propelled guns of the type 2C1 "Carnation" of the invaders, as well as motor vehicles with ammunition, was fixed between Zernovoe and Starobeshevo. The transfer was conducted at dusk to the southern direction. Obviously, we are talking about a fire group from the category of "wandering guns".

In the area of Oboznoe and Christovo, the invaders equip several new platoon stronghold points. Armored vehicles (mainly BMP-1 and MT-LB) are disguised on the outskirts of settlements in private households now.

In the area of Donetsk (the so-called Putilovka forest district), at least 4 tanks of invaders, disguised in positions, are fixed. These tanks are used for sudden shelling of the AFU positions in the area of the Butovka mine and the DAP. Quite possibly, that the same group that was previously noted to the north of Kashtanovoe.

In the area of Golmovskoe, the invaders carry out a hidden installation of mine-blasting obstacles (mining) of some important areas in tactical means. In general, anti-tank mines are used, but anti-personnel mines are also noted. Some local militants, in violation of the order on concealment of actions, warn the local population about the inadmissibility of visiting the landings south of the railway station Dolomit.

The occupiers, after firing on the working shift of the Donetsk Filtration Station, decided to arrange a provocative show from this. Announced the "conservation" of the station, they brought journalists from the controlled media to this site and arranged something like "indicative evacuation".  The main goal of the actions of the occupiers is to deprive Avdeevka of water, and blackmail Ukraine at the same time. Simultaneously during the past day, an informational action was carried out to spread "evidence" with the help of some "eyewitnesses" in social networks that allegedly "AFU occupied the territory of the DFS" after firing the territory of the station as a "preliminary exercise of the AFU before this action".

In the area of Stanitsa Luganskaya, as one might suppose, the invaders disrupted the disengagement of the parties. The main method of disrupting the agreements from the part of the enemy is the opening of a fire from the AGS and machine guns at the AFU's advanced stronghold points. The main positions are a mountain with a monument to Prince Igor. In this case, the occupiers were not embarrassed by the presence of OSCE observers. The provocations were carried out not only at night, but during the day.

The activation of the work of mobile groups of electronic warfare from the composition of the units of RF armed forces in the occupied territories is noted. In particular, these groups have the task of jamming mobile communications (and other frequencies) in areas where large quantities of equipment and armaments are being transferred, as well as in areas adjacent to areas of large "exercises" of occupation groups. Similar activity of the EW is observed in the territories controlled by both the “DNR” and “LNR”.

A complicated situation with diesel fuel has developed in "LDNR" before the sowing campaign. It is possible to buy it practically only at very inflated, speculative prices (in particular, you can buy Russian diesel fuel in “DNR” for such sky-high prices). In this situation, Russian advisers especially warned the leadership of “DNR” and “LNR” about strict liability in case of attempts to use fuel from the stocks of the “1st Army Corps DNR” and the “2nd Army Corps LNR” for civilian purposes.

As of the beginning of April this year, wage arrears to "state employees of the DNR", as well as other employees of the "budgetary sphere of the DNR", is more than 10.5 million rubles. According to the occupation administration, only in January-March this indicator grew by 6.5% in "DNR". This situation is caused by the lack of the necessary funds in the "budget of the DNR", while the Russian side does not want to transfer money to the occupation administrations of “LDNR”.

The “DNR and LNR leadership” received instructions from the RF Presidential Administration to develop and adopt "laws" under the working title "On Combating against the Ukrainian Occupation". The main "recommended" topics of the document:

- persons in military uniform with signs of distinction of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other armed formations of Ukraine are automatically recognized as "war criminals", and their liquidation does not entail any "legal consequences";

- Ukrainian politicians and the top leadership of Ukraine are recognized as "leaders of the occupation regime" and is subject of the "prosecution";

- civil servants, budget workers and representatives of the Ukrainian media are "accomplices of the occupation regime", who also fall under the "prosecution".

This document can be used against all persons who receive a salary or other profit in the territory under the control of the Ukrainian authorities, including entrepreneurs who pay taxes to the state budget of Ukraine.

An exception is planned only for people who voluntarily agree to cooperate with "security services, law enforcement agencies and other state structures of DNR and LNR".

Obviously, Russian occupiers try to intimidate large sections of the population in unoccupied territories in this way, and first of all put pressure on Ukrainian civil servants working in civil-military administrations of Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
