The Russian Federation has delivered large caliber sniper rifles and more than 1,500 tonnes of fuel and lubricants to the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions through uncontrolled areas of Ukraine's state border.

"Last week, new batches of Russian-made weapons and ammunition, including large caliber sniper rifles and more than 1,500 tonnes of fuel and lubricants, were delivered from Russia into the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions through uncontrolled areas of Ukraine's state border," Ukraine’s Defense Ministry Spokesperson Maria Salnik said at a briefing, citing information from the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

According to Salnik, the occupiers also started large-scale engineering works. The aggressor increases the number of trenches and passages in residential areas, in the territory of operational industrial facilities, which are close to the line of contact. In this way, the enemy creates conditions for the covert use of sniper and mortar squads, the spokesperson added.

As reported, the occupiers violated the ceasefire in eastern Ukraine eight times over the past day. An anti-tank missile system hit civilian buildings in Donetsk region.
