LUGANSK, July 1 (Lugansk Media Centre) – The LPR People's Militia has downed a Ukrainian aerial vehicle carrying intimidation leaflets to be dropped over the LPR territory,  said LPR People's Militia press service officer Ivan Filiponenko.

He said that the LPR defenders "downed another Ukrainian drone on reconnaissance mission and carrying intimidation leaflets to be dropped over the LPR territory".

Filiponenko said that the JFO commander Alexander Syrsky took literally the words of the Ukrainian president that he aimed to win Donbass back by means of an information war.

Earlier the LPR People's Militia revealed that Ukrainian electronic warfare units are targeting the UAVs of the OSCE SMM intentionally.

Ukrainian forces regularly interfere with the OSCE drone operations to conceal heavy weapons presence at the contact line.

Employing combat aviation and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) in a 30 km wide zone along the line of contact is banned under Article 7 of Minsk Memorandum, with the sole exception of OSCE SMM UAVs.
