National Security and Defense Council: Situation in Eastern Ukraine 5/09/2015


5/09/2015 the enemy for several times opened fire at the positions of the ATO forces from the territory of the destroyed Donetsk airport and the village of Spartak. At the front lines of defense in Krasnohorivka, a skirmish between militants and the Ukrainian military occurred. The most strained situation was near Maryinka, where the enemy applied 82-mm mortars twice.

Yesterday there was one enemy provocation near Shchastya town. For about 10 minutes militants were shooting with small arms from the right bank of the Siversky Donets River. At the same time, in the Mariupol sector, the truce was fully observed.

Ukrainian Armed Forces did not incur casualties over the past day; two soldiers were killed by grenade tripwire trap.This happened to the north of Horlivka.

In Starobelsk district of Luhansk region, Ukrainian security forces found an arsenal which contained two missiles for anti-aircraft gun and missile system 2K22 Tunguska, one RPG-26, two AK assault rifles and magazines for them, 18 crates with TNT, more than 2 thousand cartridges of various caliber and other ammunition. Weapons were confiscated.

Additionally, Ukrainian security services blocked several bank accounts used by Evgeniy Zhylin, the leader of the criminal organization “Oplot”, with more than ₴1.5 million on them.


Note: This text is a transcript of the official briefing of the spokesperson of Administration of the President of Ukraine on ATO-related issues. Uaposition can not change the wording and terms used by the spokesperson. We disagree with the used terms “Russian backed militants” and “Pro Russian terrorist” instead of “Russian troops” and “Russian terrorists”. However, this is official terminology of Ukrainian authorities because as of now Ukrainian authorities don’t recognize Russia as a Party to the Conflict in Ukraine and don’t severs diplomatic relations and economic cooperation.
