Ukraine’s counterintelligence operatives say they have intercepted communications between members of the self-proclaimed “Donetsk People’s Republic” (“DPR”) based in the Russia-occupied part of Donbas and their Russian supervisors. Part of the recordings is available to UNIAN.

A Russian supervisor (nom de guerre “Rostov”), 35, a regular serviceman with the Russian army, ranking as major, commanding a howitzer self-propelled artillery battalion based in the occupied town of Novoazovsk in Donetsk region, gives an order to one of “DPR” commanders, A.V. Chepishko, a battalion’s first deputy chief of staff, to open fire on selected targets. He briefs the militant on target location data and in the course of the conversation it becomes clear that the target is in fact a position of the “DPR” unit.

Below is the translation of the intercept’s transcript.

Comms between “Rostov” and Chepishko, 12:42 p.m. local time, April 7, 2021

Chepishko: Yes, hello.

Rostov: Did you recognize me?

Ch.: Hello, say again, I can’t read you.

R.: Hello! It’s me! Did you recognize or not?

Ch.: Affirmative.

R.: Call your fellows, get them up – there’s a job to do.

Ch.: Roger.

R.: Call the first unit, get them up quickly, you will be working now. For about 10 minutes.

Ch.: Wilco.

R.: That’s it – report to me then.

After that, Chepishko calls “DPR” fighter N.V. Demich (nom de guerre “Chagan”), commander of the second gun crew.ScreenshotScreenshot

Chepishko: Hello, Chagan! Get the guys up. Get them quickly up on the “trunks” [barrel artillery]!

Demich: Hello, say what? Can’t hear you.

Ch.: Get the guys up quickly – be ready in 10 minutes. Get the crews to combat positions.

D.: Got it, roger.

Ch.: Now I’ll have the targets and then you get it done.

D.: Affirmative. Wilco.

Ch.: Report when your people are ready.

Comms between Chepishko and the Russian supervisor, nom de guerre “Rostov:”

Chepishko: Hello, commander, the crews are ready.

“Rostov”: Well, listen here, the two “trunks” must go all-in, dense fire – do you copy?

Ch.: Copy that. Roger.

R.: Well, look, the first target… are you writing it down? 24284 at 10108. The second one is 24451 at 09840. You got that?

Ch.: Yes.

R.: Well, look here – half of rounds in running fire mode. Got it?

Ch.: Yes, do running fire. Roger.

R.: Alright, go ahead.ScreenshotScreenshot

In another interaction, “DPR” fighter Chepishko is outraged at the fact that the Russians order to open fire on “DPR” positions.

Chepishko: Hello, commander! They are our people there!

“Rostov”: Don’t you give a sh*t whether they are ours or not? You got the order – you go ahead!

Ch.: The first target is “Varyag” [probably another nom de guerre – the translator’s note].

R.: Well, I don’t give a f*ck who that is. You’ve got [your] order. Execute!

Ch.: What the f*ck? We’ll bring fire down on our people.

R.: Listen here! They’re cannon fodder. Feel no pity for them, or do you want to trade places with them instead? Do our [commanders] want war? They’ll get it. And our men [Russian troops amassed in Russian territory along the border with Ukraine] who are on the [border] line will finally be able to enter big time. Understood?

Ch.: Yes, but I feel bad for the guys…

R.: Who cares! We’ll put the blame on the Ukrops [a derogative term for Ukrainian soldiers]. We’ll take care of their [killed “DPR” fighters’] families later on. The main thing is to let the active stage kick off. They’re all the toll of war.

Ch.: Got it. I’m on it.

Then Chepishko transfers to Demich the positioning data and the order to open fire. The latter takes on the order.

  • Witness the lengths the invading filth will go to, to make a false flag provocation supported by propaganda. The stooges like the OSCE would say both sides need to de-escalate tensions. After 7 years Ukraine has a well developed reputation for being calm and only responding to attacks but you never hear about that from the media or the OSCE.
