Donetsk, Nov 2 – DAN. Ukrainian armed forces redeployed tanks, howitzers, mortars and six buses with Polish and Georgian mercenaries to Gorlovka frontline area, said DPR Operations Command deputy commander Eduard Basurin.
"According to our intelligence, 12 tanks, 10 howitzers of 122mm caliber and six 120mm mortars were spotted arriving to a railway station Skotovataya in Verkhnetoretskoye township area (4 km west of Gorlovka)," he said.
Six buses with Polish and Georgian mercenaries and terrorists arrived in Novgorodskoye (6km south-west of Gorlovka) in two days. The JCCC and OSCE SMM were informed on these violations of Minsk Agreements.

DPR intelligence reports Kiev’s regular deployment of military equipment to the conflict zone. Under The Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements signed by the Contact Group on February 12, 2015, the sides have to withdraw their artillery systems of 100 mm caliber or more to a distance of 50 kilometers apart from each other, multiple launch rocket systems Tornado, Uragan and Smerch to a distance of 70 kilometers and Tactical Missile Systems Tochka to a distance of 140 kilometers. The Attachment to the Minsk Agreements signed in September provides for the parties’ withdrawal of their artillery systems of a caliber less than 100 mm, as well as tanks and mortars. Despite the accords, Ukraine regularly shells DPR areas.
