Donetsk, Sep 21 - DAN. Ukrainian forces deployed two tank platoons to the south axis, DPR Operations Command deputy commander Eduard Basurin said on Thursday.
“We’re continuing to record the strengthening of enemy troops on the frontline amid the ceasefire,” Basurin said.
DPR intelligence spotted two tank platoons moving from Stariy Krym village (outside Mariupol) to Kiev-held Primorskoye village on south axis, he said.
DPR intelligence regularly records the deployment of hardware to the Donbass conflict zone by Kiev. The Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements signed by the Contact Group on 12 February 2015 creates a 50-kilometre security zone for 100mm or larger calibre artillery systems, a security zone of 70 km wide for MLRS and 140 km wide for MLRS “Tornado-S”, Uragan, Smerch and Tactical Missile Systems Tochka.
The September addendum commits the parties to withdrawing artillery pieces of calibre less than 100mm, tanks and mortars.*jk
