According to the Directorate General of Intelligence, the militants are carrying out additional mining along the line of contact in Donbas, even in the immediate proximity to settlements and civilian infrastructure. This was reported by the press service of the Defense Ministry.
The Ministry noted that the enemy used anti-tank and anti-personnel landmines, some of them are prohibited by international conventions, as well as improvised explosive devices.
According to data acquired by Ukrainian intelligence, a low level of training of fighters leads to an increase of losses, and six people have been blown up since the beginning of February due to the absence of minefield schemes and interaction between their units.
It was also stated that Ukrainian positions had been attacked in the area of Orikhove settlement. There are no casualties reported.
As we reported earlier, underground armor and military dugout, which belongs to militants in the uncontrolled territory of Donetsk region, was spotted by OSCE on February 6.
It is worth noting that the occupants made a dugout near Sosnivske settlement. In addition, they parked an armored personnel carrier and towed mortar next to several civilian homes.
