Donetsk, Oct 31 – DAN. Ukrainian armed forces redeployed a train loaded with artillery units and tanks to Druzhkovka town on Gorlovka axis, DPR Operations Command said.
"Terrorists keep pulling in heavy weapons. According to our intelligence, a train was spotted in Druzhkovka (40km from the frontline) carrying 122mm and 152mm self-propelled artillery platforms and 20 tanks towards Gorlovka," DPR Operations Command Deputy Chief Eduard Basurin said.
The DPR Operations Command has repeatedly reported Ukrainian army to redeploy train cars loaded with weapons and munitions to the front areas, and also to intensify redeployment of multiple launch rocket systems and artillery pieces. Kiev forces often occupy summer camps, farms or restricted-access locations.
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.
