The armed forces of Ukraine contacted officers of Donetsk People’s Republic through open channels of communication with the request to open fire on the “Azov” battalion. This was announced by the spokesperson of the Ministry of Defence of DPR, Eduard Basurin.

“UAF is trying to provoke our soldiers to violate the ceasefire: military personnel of UAF contacted officers of DPR militia through open channels of communication with a request to open mortar or artillery fire on the positions of “Azov” regiment, complaining about their insubordination and aggression towards the civilian population,” – said Basurin.

This was reported by RIA Novosti with reference to Donetsk News Agency.

He added that these calls to open fire were ignored by the militia. “We advise the armed forces of Ukraine to restore order in subordinate units with their own forces and means” – said Basurin.
