Occupiers of CADO admitted that there were militants of the so-called "people's police of the DNR" at the site of wounding of two children in Sakhanka. The "people's police" reported that civilians in Sakhanka allegedly "were preparing a monument to the soldiers who died in the Great Patriotic War, and blocked the roof of a nearby village hall". According to the occupation authorities, a shot from an anti-tank grenade launcher exploded near the people, resulting in "injuring two children, Nastia and Dima, born 2006, and two adults". As it turned out, militants of the "people's militia" were nearby at that time, they allegedly came to the aid of the wounded and began the evacuation. At this moment, according to the "people's militia", another SPG shot allegedly exploded, as a result of which one militant died and another was injured. All information about the tragedy in Sakhanka comes exclusively from sources of the occupation power. As it is known, the command of the "DNR" occupation forces regularly places their firing points and deploys the units in the residential sector.
Occupation authorities of the "DNR" recognized 147 cases of COVID-19 disease in the uncontrolled territory of Donetsk oblast. This was said in the report of the so-called "Ministry of Health". 5 new cases of COVID-19 coronavirus infection were recorded in CADO on May 6.
Occupation authorities of the "DNR" issued a marked post card "Stalino. The Year of the Great Victory", timed it to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the victory over fascism. The background on the front side of the card depicts a map of the Donbass liberation operation, during which the city of Stalino (Donetsk) was liberated from fascist invaders on September 8, 1943. There is a stamp with a portrait of I.Stalin in the upper right corner. The authors of the idea falsely assert that the slogan "For the Motherland! For Stalin!" was the main one during the years of the war against Nazi Germany. Stalin on a postcard is respectfully called the "Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the USSR Armed Forces", without specifying that he is personally responsible for serious failures of the Red Army in the initial period of the war and unjustified casualties among the army personnel. In addition, I.Stalin is the creator of the repressive machine in the USSR, which destroyed millions of Soviet people.
