The "LNR" leader Leonid Pasechnik has announced a reduction in the level of combat readiness of illegal armed formations of the "republic".
In his next statement, the head of the occupation administration reported that Ukraine, allegedly, complied with his demands and stopped shelling that it was charged with.
"In connection with this, a decision was made to reduce the mission capability of the "people's militia" units (self-designation of the "LNR" illegal armed formations).
Instead of the "high-alert mode", Pasechnik stated, the occupation authorities "intend to focus on preparing and conducting… the Victory Parade, which will be held on the territory of the "republic" on the same day with the Russian Federation - June 24".
At the same time, the "LNR" leader threatened Ukraine that, just in case, "the full combat readiness regime will be resumed".
As previously reported, the "DNR/LNR" militants simultaneously announced that illegal armed formations of the "republic" were put on high alert under the pretext of the alleged shelling of the occupied territories by the AFU.
