In the area of the Joint Forces Operation on December 10, Russian occupation forces violated the ceasefire 7 times, - the JFO headquarters reported. In particular, the enemy opened fire from 120 mm mortars at the Joint Forces' positions near Novooleksandrivka in the Popasna direction two times. The enemy fired from 82 mm mortars at the Joint Forces' positions in the area of Svobodnyi small village in the Popasna direction, Zaitseve in the Horlivska direction and Butivka mine in the Donetsk direction. Also, Russian occupiers fired from grenade launchers of various systems, large-caliber machine guns and small arms at the settlements of Novozvanivka in the Popasna direction, Berezove in the Donetsk direction and Chermalyk in the Mariupol direction.
The occupation authorities of the "DNR" stated that the Ukrainian command was preparing a large-scale offensive in the Azov Sea region with the aim of reaching the border with Russia, now controlled by the militants. This was said in the "extraordinary" statement of calling himself "representative of the operational command of the people's militia of the DNR" Eduard Basurin. According to him, the "terrorist attack" in one of the chemical shops of the Mariupol Metallurgical Plant, allegedly organized by the SBU, will be the pretext for the offensive. Moreover, despite the possibility of admitting the SBU to the metallurgical plant, the militants stated that an unmanned aerial vehicle would be used. After that, on December 14, the JFO units will allegedly launch an offensive to reach the border with the Russian Federation in the area of Novoazovsk by December 15.
Horlivka militant and terrorist Igor Bezler, nicknamed "Bes", quite competently proved that statement of the "DNR" authorities on the impending offensive of the JFO troops is the fruit of the sick imagination of its author. He wrote this on his page in social network. As reported, calling himself "representative of the operational command of the people's militia of the DNR" Eduard Basurin stated that the Ukrainian command was preparing a large-scale offensive in the Azov region on December 14 in order to reach the border with Russia, now controlled by the militants. "I looked at the "offensive scheme" voiced by Basurin. I wonder what is more in it - idiocy and hysteria of that who voiced this event, or douchebagary of the intelligence overstuffed with hallucinogens?", - Bezler mockingly inquired. According to him, the number of equipment and manpower of the JFO units, voiced by Basurin, does not meet the objectives of a large-scale offensive. "Nayev, graduate of the Moscow Higher Military Command School is certainly not an idiot, like Basurin", - "Bes" stated.
The so-called "DNR police" conducted a "Night City" crime-prevention operation from December 7 to 9, as a result of which 276 citizens were detained for "breaking the curfew". This was reported in the fake "Ministry of the Interior".
Kuibyshevskyi district of occupied Donetsk was left without a mobile connection of the illegally operating Phoenix separatist operator. This was stated in the report of the fake "Ministry of Communications". It was noted that on December 10, at about 16:25, damage to the main fiber-optic communication cable occurred in the Kuibyshevskyi district of occupied Donetsk. "As a result of the accident, there is a significant deterioration in the quality of services in the 2G standard throughout the Kuibyshevskyi district, as well as their complete absence in some parts of the district", - the report said.
