Combat engineers of the "DNR" illegal armed formations "carry out work" near their own positions in violation of the terms of the declared truce. This fact was recognized by creator of the Vostok terrorist battalion Alexander Khodakovsky.
"Our combat engineers were working in front of our positions just a very short while ago", - he wrote in his Telegram channel.
According to him, carrying out the work prohibited by the armistice terms ended with one of the mine pickers "stepping on an anti-personnel mine, which tore off his leg below the knee".
Khodakovsky has traditionally blamed the Ukrainian side for the wounding of the "DNR" militant. Allegedly, having noticed the combat engineers, "the enemy did not begin to issue ultimatums, but simply opened fire from AGS and NSV". It is revealing that no one was injured as a result of the mythical shelling, but one member of the illegal armed formations was critically injured as a result of stepping on the mine "in front of our positions".
The Vostok battalion commander was outraged that the command of the occupation forces demanded that the wounding of the mine picker on his own mine, taken to the hospital "in uniform and even with the combat engineer's stuff on his belt" be recognized as an incident with a civilian.
