Donetsk, Dec 4 – DAN. Ukrainian forces have installed more almost 300 anti-tank mines in the vicinity of and within the Petrovskoye-Bogdanovka disengagement area, the DPR People’s Militia said.

“Our spotters have reported engineer activity to install more than 200 TM-62 anti-tank mines and more than 70 mines within the disengagement area,” the report reads.

Ukrainian anti-aircraft gun was reported in the area of Talakovka on the southern axis and three combat reconnaissance/patrol vehicles were spotted in Pervomaiskoye.

Petrovskoye is located 40km south of Donetsk. It is one of three pilot disengagement areas. The sides carried out the disengagement in 2016 for the first time but Ukrainian units soon infiltrated back. Complete withdrawal of forces finally took place on November 11, 2019. *ot
