There have not been combat provocations from Ukrainian armed groups for the past 24 hours, spokesman for the DPR People’s Militia Directorate Pavel Fomenko reported at the briefing on November 2. Since the beginning of the current 24-hour period, in violation of Clause 2 of the Additional Ceasefire Control Measures, militants from the 53rd brigade opened fire with an automatic grenade launcher at our defenders’ positions near Novolaspa. Given the fact that the fire was aimless and did not endanger the lives and health of DPR residents, our defenders did not open return fire. DPR monitors at the JCCC once again reported that militants from the 23rd battalion of the 56th brigade were carrying out engineer work to retrofit their positions in the Peski area, which is a direct violation of Clause 3 of the truce in effect. The consequences of such wrongdoings have already led to casualties among the personnel, and the number of such casualties as a result of blowing up on their own minefields will only be growing, if they continue to retrofit their positions. Yesterday’s engineer work at the battalion’s positions resulted in the detonation of an explosive device planted by predecessors from the 57th brigade. As a result, an AFU soldier was seriously injured and died on the spot because of the failure to give him timely medical care. It is noteworthy that reporters from Newsweek Polska, a Polish media outlet, were present at the positions during the engineer work. After the accident, the journalists’ footage was confiscated, and they signed an agreement on non-disclosure of the accident under the threat of withdrawal of their accreditation. It is important to note that another regular violation of the Additional Ceasefire Control Measures by the Armed Forces of Ukraine is air reconnaissance with the use of UAVs. The work of a UAV from the 18th battalion of the 35th AFU brigade, which was responsible for monitoring the disguising of their positions, has been detected for the past 24 hours. Due to the lack of coordination, an EW company from the 35th brigade jammed the flight control channels of the UAV of Phantom make, and the drone fell on the enemy’s minefield.
