"The militants fired at Ukrainian strong point in the village of Shchastia in the Luhansk region with small arms at 1:15 p.m.
"It should be added that according to our intelligence, the pro-Russian gangs are using the truce to prepare more provocations, planning to destabilize the situation in the south-eastern regions of Ukraine. The chieftains ordered the militants natives of the Zaporizhia region to carry out congress of Zaporizhia fellow-countrymen in the so-called "DPR". Depending on the pace of developments, the mercenaries could use this event to expand separatist activities to Zaporizhia region. The criminals as well plan to attract residents of other regions that border with the ATO area to participate in such meetings".
