Latest news from Donbas say that among the Russian Armed Forces in Donbas were distributed information about a general rotation of the units in October. Military personnel experienced in combat operations against the ATO forces will go fighting to Syria. Division of the Russian Armed Forces, based in the Donetsk Southern Railway Station was relocated to the territory of the Russian Federation, Joinfo.ua reports with the reference to DmytroTymchuk, the coordinator of the Information Resistance.
The so-called “DPR Republican Guard” was disbanded. Russian mercenaries who fought in its ranks try to return to the Russian Federation, expressing extreme dissatisfaction of salary non-payments since July 2015. Heads of so-called “DPR Republican Guard” are wanted for looting and robbery.
Head of “DPR” Aleksandr Zakharchenko created “assault battalion” on the basis of the “Somali” gang and assigned terrorist “Givi” (M.Tolstyh) as a commander.
The gangs keep competing for influence in “DPR”. So-called “prosecutors” and “MGB” heads continue to initiate criminal proceedings against terrorists from the local population and Russian mercenaries (in DPR it is prohibited to charge the soldiers of the Russian Armed Forces). Among the members of illegal armed groups has been observed a sharp dip of discipline, resulting in alcohol abuse, the use of weapons in a state of intoxication. All these cause civilian casualties.
At the checkpoints terrorists rip of the possessions of the people going to and from the Ukraine controlled territories. In Novoazovsk region many cases of missing people were reported.
It should be recalled that last night and most of the day on September 26 it was completely calm in the ATO area, but in the evening the militants fired small arms, heavy machine guns and automatic grenade launcher. Unfortunately, one Ukrainian soldier died after he tripped on mine and another was wounded.
