Ukrainian troops continue attacking separatists' positions
14 Russian soldiers were killed and another 19 were injured in a clash near the town of Avdiyivka, according to the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry.
According to intelligence reports, "constant attempts to attack the Ukrainian troops near Avdiyivka resulted in increased losses of the 1st (Komsomolske), 3rd (Horlivka) and 100th (Donetsk) separate motorized rifle brigades of the 1st Army Corps of the Russian Federation."
"On April 9, 14 dead and 19 wounded Russian soldiers were delivered to Donetsk Kalinin regional hospital and Vyshnevskiy Central Clinical City Hospital," the report says.
It is also noted that "due to the regular publication by the international media of the facts of willful violation of the Minsk agreements by the Russian occupation troops, the command of the 1st Army Corps of the Russian armed forces is trying to avoid the use of wording in the combat organization papers, which can be used as evidence of war crimes."
The intelligence found out that "on the direct order of the Commander of the 1st Army Corps Major General Valeriy Asapov, the supply of ammunition for the needs of the 11th separate motorized rifle regiment (Makiyivka) and 3rd separate motorized rifle brigade (Horlivka) is made both for target practice. For this purpose, the leadership has prepared a fictitious plan of activities for April fire training with the calculation of the amount of ammunition, ten times greater than the relevant standards."
