The last 24 hours in Lugansk Region were very hard. We have soldiers who got killed and wounded, also wounded among civilian population. Terrorists continue to increase their military aggression everyday. Following the task of their masters to destroy everything they don’t care where they shell and why and surely they don’t care about Minsk Agreements.

JCCC says that pro-Russian terrorists increase military confrontation in attempt to sabotage Minsk Agreements

Joint Centre for Control and Coordination (JCCC) reports that terrorists ignored all requests to stop heavy shelling. Starting from 21:00 of July 31 till 03:28 of August 1 Russian-terrorist groups opened heavy fire almost all along the contact line in Donetsk and Lugansk Regions. Ukrainian Army positions and towns and villages located close to the front line were heavily shelled, those were Avdiivka, Opytne, Pisky, Mariinka, Krasnohorivka, Mayorsk, Luhanske, Zaitseve and so on. The worst situation was in the areas of Horlivka, Donetsk and Avdiivka. In the last 24 hours 2 civilian people were wounded in Dzerzhynsk and Toshkivka.

Briefing of JCCC for SMM of OSCE

Terrorists were shelling Ukrainian positions hiding behind residential areas, they used heavy artillery that was supposed to be removed from the contact line according to Minsk Agreements. Terrorists opened artillery fire from the center of Horlivka, that was another war crime.

The head of Ukrainian side of JCCC said it again that it’s unacceptable when terrorists use civil population as a shield and that they will pay for the crimes against humanity.

Most of the request to stop fire terrorists simply ignored. Representatives of Russian side in Joint Centre for Control and Coordination informed that they can’t influence insurgents and can’t make them stop the fire.

The head of Special Monitoring Mission of OSCE in Kiev and the office of SMM OSCE in Donetsk were informed about critical situation, international means to influence insurgents were used. Fire from insurgents side was stopped for a short time, but later they resumed the shelling.

The head of Ukrainian side of Joint Centre for Control and Coordination thinks that this is another attempt to escalate the conflict.

This is especially cynical before next round of the meeting in Minsk that is planned for August 3 and this is an attempt to sabotage the meeting by illegal armed groups that control some areas of Lugansk and Donetsk Regions.

JCCC warns insurgents who control some areas of Donetsk and Lugansk Regions that their attempts to sabotage conflict settlement by peace processes and trasnfer into military confrontation are unacceptable. Any military provocation will get adequate reaction from the side of Armed Forces of Ukraine.

At the same time another house was destroyed in Troitske village after it was shelled from a mortar. Nobody got hurt, two dogs who were securing the house got killed.

Looking at destroyed houses in Stanytia Luhanska you can understand that terrorists of so-called Lugansk People’s Republic decided burn the town to the ground and they don’t care about people and destruction. I wand those animals to hear me: all what is done by you and by your puppeteers will get back to you in a much bigger scale, don’t even doubt that.
