The "DNR" is concerned that the Ukrainian party in Minsk intends to demonstrate a video with evidence of the involvement of the militants in undermining a minibus on February 23 near Olenivka, where people died. This is evidenced by the statement of head of the press service of the so-called "management of the people's militia" (illegal armed formations of the "DNR" - OstroV) Daniil Bezsonov.
He is trying to shift all the blame for the incident on the Ukrainian party, stating that the video allegedly contains "distorted phrases of the DNR leadership, taken out of context, about the alleged involvement of the "people's militia" in the tragedy".
The meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group on the settlement of situation in the Donbass will be held in Minsk tomorrow, March 13.
As previously reported, on February 23, two people died and one was injured as a result of a car blowing up in the area of occupied Olenivka. The car drove to the median strip where the explosive device was set, most likely, it was the anti-tank mine. Immediately after the tragedy, the separatist and Russian propaganda groundlessly stated that the mine in the immediate vicinity of their positions was laid by the Ukrainian sabotage-reconnaissance group. Eyewitnesses on social networks claim that the site of the minivan blowing up was in direct vision from the "DNR" checkpoint. According to the OSCE SMM reports, the mining of the territory where the minibus blew up was carried out by the "DNR" militants since the summer of 2018.
