“August 1, at about 8.00, the illegal armed gangs in ORDO bombed the vicinity of the village Vodyanoe near Mariupol from four-barrelled multiple rocket launchers prohibited by the Minsk agreements. The militants made the launchers of this weapon more mobile by mounting it in the back of a KamAZ truck,” the message says.
Local residents were not hurt. Also, at 8:15 militants destroyed engineering ammunition near Staromikhaylivka, in order to stage shelling by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in this way.
“On July 31, the Ukrainian side of the Joint Center for Control and Coordination warned that it was precisely these days, on the eve of a regular meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk, that the ORDLO illegal armed gangs would resort to provocations to discredit the Armed Forces of Ukraine,” JCCC.
Earlier, the Ukrainian side of the JCCC stated that on the eve of the next meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group on the Peaceful Settlement of the Situation in the East of Ukraine, the ORDLO Mass Media had published a traditional standard set of falsifications, which their representatives intended to announce on August 2 in Minsk.
