In ATO area the losses not related to war exceeded war losses, 2014-2015 ATO press officer Oleksiy Dmytrashkivsky claimed on “112 Ukraine”.
According to Dmytrashkivsky, militants fire not “indirectly”. He believes that judging by casualty information, militants calculate most efficient aims.
“I also would like to pay your attention to the fact that there are no losses on our side. However, currently we have more non-battle casualties than war losses. These are diseases and other incidents, which occur directly in deployment area. These may be different diseases and suicides, considered non-battle losses”, he mentioned.
Militants keep firing at ATO positions. On 25 January they fired 24 times in Donetsk direction.
