But despite this, for the time, how long it lasted, the number of wounded on our side has decreased by more than 100 people.”

He also noted that if attacks occur, they are aimless, just to disturb once again.
“But I don’t see the benefits of such war, when one faces a kilometer, the second – begins: this gives the machine gun, where mine gave up – and so perejivaniya the whole day goes. We are not talking about causing serious harm to the enemy – it’s just harassing fire from both sides. And look – there’s “200th”, there is “300 minutes”, and mainly due to a stray bullet or mine that accidentally flew” – the General added.
As told by the coordinator of group “Information resistance”, the military expert Konstantin Mashovets, Russia breaks the “school fire” for three purposes. According to him, Moscow is not interested in a truce in the Donbass and does everything for his violations.
