The "DNR" tried to deceive the public, saying that as a result of shelling of Dokuchaievsk by Ukrainian army, a teenager was injured.
"A minor in Dokuchaievsk, born in 2001, got shrapnel injuries as a result of the shelling", - the so-called head of the city administration Alexander Kachanov said.
It is noted that the victim was brought to the Dokuchaievsk central city hospital, his condition is being specified.
However, the report of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission does not confirm the information about the reasons for the wounding of a teenager distributed by the authorities of the "DNR". The report says that the teenager found a grenade that exploded in his hands.
“The SMM followed up on a report of a civilian casualty, received from a Russian Federation Armed Forces officer of the Joint Centre for Control and Co-ordination (JCCC). At the hospital in the “DNR”-controlled Dokuchaievsk (30km south-west of Donetsk), a boy (aged 16) told the Mission that at about 11:00 on 10 October, he had been at home in Dokuchaievsk handling a hand grenade that he had found, and the grenade had subsequently exploded. Medical staff at the hospital told the Mission that the boy had been injured in his legs, left ear and head, and that pieces of shrapnel remained in his body following surgery”, - the report says.
