Ukrainian military command asks media not to publish information on movements of Ukrainian troops in Donbas

the Command of the Ukrainian Joint Forces Operation (JFO) in the Donbas requested in a Facebook post that all media and bloggers avoid posting data on tactical movements of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

“The implementation of tasks to improve the tactical position of troops requires thorough efforts to prepare and carry them out,” the statement reads. “As our heroes are doing this difficult and dangerous job, military units of the Joint Forces require certain privacy and confidentiality. A leak of information may result in a defeat and losses among servicemen.”

The JFO Headquarters added in their statement: “There is a time for everything, both the liberation of the territory occupied by Russian terrorist troops and the publication of information about the results of our heroes’ work within the Joint Forces.”

On April 30, Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko officially announced the completion of the Anti-Terrorist Operation and the beginning of the Joint Forces Operation in the Donbas.
