Creator of the terrorist Vostok Battalion Alexander Khodakovsky admitted that the "DNR" militants had plundered the Donbas in 2014 to "solve military and economic problems". He wrote this on his Telegram. "2014 was fast-moving in everything, a lot of economic problems emerged along with military tasks a - the military tool had to be somehow maintained. I do not paint myself as a virgin and I do not look away embarrassedly when they ask me where the money was taken from. The business wanted to survive", - Khodakovsky told that the business of the Donbas for self-preservation began to voluntarily finance the "DNR" militants. "The Olimp Corporation, being the largest alcohol producer, allocated about a hundred thousand dollars, the Ukrsplav company helped with equipment, the Khamadey cigarettes did not complain either…", - the terrorist gave examples of the symbiosis of the bandits and big Donetsk business. According to Khodakovsky, he handed over all the businesses he was "protecting" to the authorities of the "DNR"

Of these, 483 deaths were registered. Thus, the death rate is 7.71%. 203 cases of pneumonia were also detected over the day, which the invaders refuse to associate with coronavirus infection, but the course is very difficult. So, 117 patients with pneumonia were hospitalized over the past day. Of them, 57 people are on oxygen support.

However, in the information revealing this fake immediately appeared in the segment of popular local bloggers. "Sources reported that there is no Russian vaccine against coronavirus in the republic yet, and it is not expected in November.

The "DNR" propagandists filmed a fake video about the visit of "servants of the people" to the front line at their base in Makiivka, trying to pass it off as "leaking" the negative reaction of Ukrainian patriots to the "deputy landing force". The author of the fake was anonymous author of the Telegram channel under the nickname "Joker DNR". "You all remember that recently, the deputies from the "Servant of the Clown" party allegedly visited the front. In fact, they were far from the front, but they visited the army men in the rear zones…", - he comments on the allegedly exclusive video. However, the simplest analysis of geolocation data shows that in fact, the "high-profile" story was filmed at one of the military bases of the illegal armed formations in occupied Makiivka of the Donetsk oblast.
