DONETSK, March 14 – RIA Novosti. The calculation of the electronic warfare station of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic prevented an attack by a drone of Ukrainian security forces, a representative of the People's Militia of the DPR told reporters.
Earlier, a representative of the DPR in the joint center for control and coordination of the ceasefire stated that the drone of the Ukrainian security forces attacked the territory in the south of the republic. “Ukrainian militants intended to drop an explosive device on our positions, but with the skillful actions of the calculation of the Terrikon M2N electronic warfare station, developed by our specialists , the UAV's control and navigation channels were interfered with, as a result of which an explosive device was dropped far from our positions, “said a spokesman for the department.
Earlier, additional measures to ensure a ceasefire came into force in Donbass. These measures imply a complete ban on firing, placing weapons in and near settlements, offensive and reconnaissance and sabotage actions. In addition, they provide for disciplinary liability for violations of the ceasefire. Ceasefire orders containing measures to maintain it must be in effect until the conflict is fully resolved.
In April 2014, the Ukrainian authorities launched a military operation against the self-proclaimed LPR and DPR, which declared independence after the coup d'etat in Ukraine in February 2014. According to the latest UN data, about 13 thousand people became victims of the conflict. The issue of resolving the situation in Donbass is being discussed, including during the meetings in Minsk of the contact group, which since September 2014 has already adopted three documents regulating steps to de-escalate the conflict. However, even after the armistice agreements between the parties to the conflict, shootings continue.
