In the past 24 hours, the armed forces of Ukraine twice violated Clause 1 of the Complex of Additional Measures, particularly, the ban on offensive and reconnaissance-sabotage actions, spokesman for the DPR PMD Pavel Fomenko reported at the briefing on December 8.
  • At the Gorlovka front, our video surveillance systems recorded a fact of violation by the enemy in the responsibility zone of the 35th AFU brigade’s 503th battalion. Ukrainian militants were carrying out engineer work to upgrade their positions near Shumy on December 7.
  • At the Mariupol front, two explosions occurred at positions of the 36th brigade's separate marine battalion in the Vodyanoye area during similar work.
“We continue to register the enemy's activities on hiding weapons and military equipment prohibited by the agreements. At that, most of the heavy equipment usually can be detected near railway stations and residential areas. Over the past 24 hours, militants from the 306th AFU EW separate battalion’s flying squad used a Bukavel-AD station in Avdeyevka during the monitoring flight of an OSCE drone. Previously, we discovered the deployment of three units of armament in the responsibility zone of the 72nd AFU brigade in Avdeyevka, Ocheretino and Opytnoye,” Pavel Fomenko said.
