Russian officers are present in the Donbass at all levels, and violation of the agreements by the "DNR/LNR" militants takes place with their permission. This was stated by former commander of the U.S. land forces in Europe, Lieutenant-General (retired) Ben Hodge in an interview with Apostrophe. He noted that Ukraine, according to the OSCE reports, adheres to the ceasefire much better, so it has a moral advantage over Russia. "And the so-called "Kremlin-supported separatists", who are in fact Russian officers of various ranks, do not respect the agreements, do not respect the OSCE", - the general said.
Several tens of thousands of people were driven to the so-called "celebrations" on the occasion of the Day of Russia in the center of occupied Donetsk on June 12 by the occupational authorities of the "DNR". This was written by residents of the uncontrolled part of Donetsk oblast in social networks. It was noted that traditionally, it is mandatory for employees of the public sector and utilities to participate in such events. In particular, the presence of a large number of school teachers was ensured, since the pupils went for the holidays and summer holidays for the teaching staff had not yet begun. Meanwhile, the air temperature has exceeded 32-33 degrees in Donetsk. Involuntary participants of the "celebrations" feared for their health and stocked up with plenty of drinking water.
