UKRAINIAN ARMED FORCES OPEN FIRE ON OBSERVERS IN DONBASS

The situation is deplorable in Donbass, where the ceasefire is violated through the fault of Ukrainian forces.

On March 26th, Ukrainian fighters have fired officers of the LPR delegation  at the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of the Ceasefire (JCCC), when they were documenting the aftermath of the Zolotoe-5 bombing.

The Center claimed that the Ukrainian Armed Forces had fired at Zolotoe-5 twice in the past day and that a school and residential buildings had been damaged.

“While observers from the LPR’s representative office at the JCCC were trying to document the consequences of the ceasefire violation in the village of Zolotoe-5 (Mikhailovka), Ukrainian gunmen opened fire at 2:40 p.m. (AGS-17).” – the report says.

It was reported that as a result of the bombing of the village of Zolote-5 in the Luhansk Democratic Republic, three residential buildings, two houses and an outdoor kitchen were destroyed. It was also reported that the windows in the local school were broken due to the explosions.

Meanwhile, fighters from the Ukrainian “Right Sector” are being transported en masse to Gorlovka. This was reported by WarGonzo (Semyon Pegov) with reference to its own sources in Konstantinovka and Dzerzhinsk.

“In these cities, new units of the right-wing organization, banned in Russia, have appeared in the so-called (Joint Forces Operation) zone.” Pravoseki (rightists) do not hide their presence, while openly intimidating the local population of Donbass,” the message reads.

The militants are reported to be occupying “empty” houses belonging to residents who have gone to work or gone to war. And in cases when people were evicted from their homes, the local government prefers not to intervene.

There is also talk of a large accumulation of equipment and personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the railway lines near Krasnoarmeysk.

On March 19, it also became known that the special forces unit “Azov” of the National Guard of Ukraine is also preparing for transfer to Donbass.

With the “Azov” and “Right Sector” deployment, the leadership of the Ukrainian Armed Forces intends to increase the presence of ideologically trained fighters capable of destabilizing the situation.

In addition, the leader of the Ukrainian neo-Nazi group “National Corps”, Andriy Biletsky, called for decisive action on the issue of the return of the Crimean Peninsula and Donbass regions to Ukraine.

What is certain from the above is that the situation is dire in Donbass, where the ceasefire is being violated through the fault of Ukrainian forces. The deployment of Ukrainian paramilitary forces exacerbates the security situation in the region.
