Press office of President President of Ukraine terminates ceasefire in the Donbas

Following the NSDC meeting, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko made a decision to terminate the unilateral ceasefire regime in the Donbas.

Thus, the validity of the ceasefire regime proclaimed by the President on June 20 and prolonged until June 30, 22:00, is deemed to be over.

“We will attack and liberate our land. Termination of ceasefire is our response to terrorists, insurgents, marauders, everyone who tortures civilians, paralyzes the economy of the region, disrupts payments of salaries, pensions, scholarships, blasts the railroad, destroys the water pipes and deprives people of normal peaceful life,” the President said in his address to the people.

10 days truce terrorists attacked Ukrainian security forces: 108 times, killing 27 security forces 69 - wounded.

Recall, the Ukrainian government announced a unilateral ceasefire for seven days from 22 pm June 20. Almost immediately terrorists continued their attacks on the position of sub ATO.

Shortly before the end of the truce (evening June 27) Russian media said the willingness of one of the leaders of the terrorist Beard maintain a cease-fire with his hand.

On the same day the President of Ukraine Poroshenko announced the extension of the ceasefire until 22 pm June 30.

Terrorist attacks lasted all this time.

To be fair, the shelling around Slovyansk and north of Lugansk never stopped, and Kiev moved large numbers of troops and Ammo around.

Three Russian Journalists, and a bunch of Civilians were killed by shelling during the “Ceasefire”, as well.

I get the feeling that all is not well in Kiev.

Poroshenko’s speech was delayed, likely until after he talked to Obama, and he was sweating profusely. Twitter reports say that Merkel and Putin also talked tonight.

~I get the feeling that all is not well in Kiev.~

No Russian energy discounts, no favorable regime for exports to Russia and Germany is not there to replace it as the coup has promised to the crowd. The most productive states are getting bombed, utilities and food prices are soaring due to inflation, EBT cards aren’t working because there are no Russian aid, tax money from the Southeast and also austerity plan from IMF in exchange for a really few cash.

I think escalating a crisis to distract population is their top priority right now to prevent Maidan II

Another report, via "South Front": Our company from Konstantinovka using tank" IS-3 ", attacked a checkpoint in the village Uljanovka Krasnoarmeysky district. Ukrainian troops have at least three dead and three wounded, with no casualties our side," - said in the militia. This is the WW2-era IS-3 that had been sitting outdoors on a concrete pedestal as a war memorial for *** SIXTY-SEVEN YEARS ***, that the rebels got running again.

Yep, about 90% of this things are drivable with oil change and new battery. As for IS-3 there are still a contemporary artillery systems using it’s caliber so you are probably able to use it for warfare.

Apparently, they do have access to ammo for it, which was why they tried to get it running again.

I’m so glad that whenever there is a development from Ukraine, about the people there fighting for their freedoms from Russia, we can always depend on the Russians on FR to present their BS.

Like a bunch of cockroaches.

Just guessing.

VIDEO:
AMERICAN Journalist being shelled in Central Kramatorsk by the Kiev Army. Kiev troops are shelling the civilian areas with Mortars and heavy artillery.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDM0ki40QEE&app=desktop

Video Description:
BREAKING NEWS Kramatorsk city center is getting hit by mortars. The explosions started at 2225 local time.

I am here with Christian B. Malaparte and 10 other people, In the basement of the Kramatorsk hotel in the center. It seems like the mortars hit within 50-200 meters of the hotel. I am not sure but the hotel may have been hit.

So far there has been two waves of motars with a break in between I am not sure how long each wave lasted, it felt like an eternity. After the first wave we thought it was over and we went out to try to document what we can. We got out side and down the block a bit and then hell broke loose motors where whistling over heads, explosions, shrapnel flying about and large chunks of metal hitting the ground all around us as we ran back to the hotel basement.

Scratch that the third wave just happened it was shorter then the rest only around 5 explosions very close. so that makes somewhere between 35-45 Explosions around us.

It is a shame that many innocent civilians just lost there lives I wont be sleeping tonight so first light headed out to check the damage and to the morgue. Hopefully the mortars are done for the night

Twitter reports of a National Guard battalion walking into a big ambush near Rubezhnoye. Many UK casualties reported.

Lots of tweets coming in now, but all say pretty much the same thing, heavy fighting, especially around Slovyansk and Kramatorsk, where the situation is very unclear.

Numerous videos on Twitter and Youtube showing fighting around Kramatorsk, and heavy shelling by the Kiev troops of the city center, including an American Journo that came under mortar fire. An apparent push from the airport into the city got bloodied.

The heaviest fighting seems to be on a line from Slovyansk to north of Lugansk, with a push by the Dnepro units around Donetsk.

You mockery is VERY disappointing.
1st- Ukraine MAKES the tanks, but could not afford because Russia has been manipulating economy of Ukraine.
2nd- Despite political differences(aka democracy vs socialism) the population wants to remain united. They are ready to give their lives & go against a well equipped army.

I don’t really care who said it, I’m calling out your Russian agenda on FR.

Here I’ll ask you again...why do you support a Russian take-over of a free country?

You post nothing but anti-Ukrainian garbage.

When stories about Ukraine defending itself are posted, you and the other Russians come out like cockroaches.

Please feel free to link to any time I have said that.
You can’t, of course. You just resent and troll anything that could be seen as anti-Kiev.

I have been following what the rebels are saying and doing. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to comment.

More info now on the fight at the Isvarino Border Post.

UK forces heavily bombarded it with artillery and air before attacking it, then panicked when they got hit with a flank ambush.

Reports say 1 APC (or AFV?), 2 BMP’s and two Ural Trucks destroyed, 35-40 UK troops killed, more wounded. Rebels report around 10-12 killed.

2 Russian REN-TV Journalists on the Russian side of the border were hurt when UK shells fell across the border.

I don’t know if you noticed or not, but Kiev is bombing their homes, not the other way around. The Coup leaders are the ones who threatened to wipe out the Russians in Ukraine, if you recall.

As in our own Civil War, most of these people are defending their own homes and towns.

Ukraine has been defending itself from Russia for well over a century.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, Russia took Ukrainian land and is instigating war. You did notice that right?

On this forum we support freedom and independence. Did you at least notice that?
