There are no backgrounds for the withdrawal of 100-mm artillery from M sector with ATO soldiers being apprehensive of getting trapped. Also in M sector several terrorist attacks of the occupied territory were recorded last night.

As reported by Censor.NET, this was announced by the M sector press officer Yaroslav Chepurnyi on the air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"This is an issue (are there any backgrounds for withdrawing 100-mm artillery - ed.) I can not comment. The issue will be addressed at a higher level, but it seems that no such backgrounds exist so far," the sector M press officer said.

According to Chepurnyi, the soldiers of the National Guard and the Armed Forces of Ukraine who are now in Shyrokine (Donetsk region) think as follows: "We can not trust militants, and all these measures they announce, and, kind of, try to adhere, are a trap to certain extent."

According to him, the whole of yesterday militants shelled the ATO positions near Mykolaivka, Chermalyk, Hnutove and Staroihnativka. The enemy used 120-mm and 82 mm mortars.

"I would also like to note that yesterday several provocative actions were recorded: explosions on the occupied territory with unknown origination. For example, yesterday at 11:20 p.m. in Shyrokine a single explosion occurred and we attribute this to the fact that an animal could run across an explosive device. Two shots also were heard near the village of Oktiabr, at 10:00 p.m. 10 bombs fell there, and at 4:10 p.m. there were three tank rounds," Chepurnyi said.
