During first three hours of "ceasefire", Russian troops open fire 14 times in Luhansk region - Haidai

Despite the "Christmas truce" declared by Putin, his soldiers opened artillery fire 14 times and tried to storm one of the de-occupied villages of Luhansk region three times on Thursday.

That’s according to the head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration, Serhii Haidai, Ukrinform reports.

"Briefly on the three hours of Putin's ‘Christmas truce’ in Luhansk region. From 12:00 to 15:00. The Ruscists fired artillery 14 times and stormed one of our settlements three times. People in de-occupied villages shelter in basements all day. Orthodox murderers greet you on Christmas," wrote the head of Luhansk region.

As reported by Ukrinform, earlier Russian propaganda media said Russian President Vladimir Putin, allegedly ordered that a "ceasefire regime" be introduced from 12:00 on January 6 to 24:00 on January 7 along the entire line of contact between the warring parties in Ukraine.

The international volunteer OSINT community InformNapalm, citing its own sources, said it is highly likely that on Christmas, Russians could stage a bloody false flag operation by blowing up Orthodox churches in Donetsk and other settlements in the occupied territories – to blame Ukraine.
