Russia testing new weapons in Donbas

Russian armed formations continue to use the "novelties" of the Russian defense industry in eastern Ukraine, in particular, 152mm Krasnopol artillery weapon systems, the press center of the headquarters of the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) has reported.

"One more instance of the enemy using the latest weapons of the Russian Federation was recorded during the firing of positions of a Joint Forces unit by the armed forces of the Russian Federation," the report reads.

In particular, on April 5, the enemy shelled Ukrainian positions from 152mm and 122mm artillery systems. An analysis of parts of used shells found at the site of the shelling confirmed the use by invaders of 152mm Krasnopol artillery weapons.

The shells of this type are in service with artillery units of the Russian Armed Forces, and their mass production is carried out by the Kalashnikov Concern.

The invaders, deliberately violating the conditions of the Minsk agreements, once again demonstrated their criminal intentions regarding the use of Ukrainian territory as a military site for testing and demonstrating the developments of the Russian defense industry, the JFO HQ said.
