Russian mercenary Andrey Morozov ("Murz") offers to provide all the "DNR/LNR" militants with passports of the Russian Federation and declare them "Russian peacekeeping forces" after that. He wrote this on his page on social network. "Fast certification of warriors, if successful, creates an opportunity for the transformation of the "corps" into the Russian peacekeeping forces in the Donbass in addition to other interesting results. You can smile sweetly in the Minsk discussions on "peacekeepers entering": "What is this for? Some Poles or Brazilians? The peacekeepers are already here. Kindly provided by Russia along with all of the supplies. Who will shoot at them, will shoot at the army of the Russian Federation with all that it implies", - "Murz" drew a scenario of legalization of the Russian occupation of the east of Ukraine.
Talking about the increase in salaries and pensions in the "republic", leader of the "LNR" Leonid Pasechnik almost literally repeated a similar statement by his "colleague" from the "DNR" Denis Pushilin. This is evidenced by a comparative analysis of the messages they made.

The "LNR" tried to unreasonably shift the responsibility for the death of an elderly man on the line of demarcation to the Ukrainian party. This is evidenced by a comparative analysis of the statements of the occupation authorities and OSCE SMM report. Thus, Ivan Filiponenko, who calls himself officer of the press service of the management of the "people's militia" (illegal armed formations of the "LNR" - OstroV), stated that an elderly resident of the occupied territory had died of heat in early June. According to him, the deceased spent a long time under a boiling sun at checkpoint on the Ukrainian side, when returned to the occupied territory, he lost consciousness and died. Meanwhile, such statements are fundamentally different from the data of the OSCE SMM. According to the Mission, the man died precisely after passing through the separatist checkpoint. He was heading towards the territory under control and died before reaching the Ukrainian checkpoint.
