The positions of the "DNR" militants are located on the outskirts of settlements, which gives reason to accuse the AFU of shelling peaceful villages in the event of a return fire. This follows from the message of a local propagandist calling himself "reporter Rudenko". Telling about the next shelling of the Syhnalne settlement by the supposedly JFO units, Rudenko admitted that, in fact, the positions of the "DNR" militants located under the cover of the houses of civilians were shelled. "As local residents tell, the strikes were carried out with heavy weapons on the outskirts of the village, hitting the positions of the People's Militia", - he wrote. Rudenko also admited that in this situation, the civilian population of Syhnalne, besotted with separatist propaganda, as the phrase goes, got off with nothing more than a fright. "People went down to the basements thinking that an offensive had begun from the side of the AFU, it was so loud in the street", - the "reporter" wrote. The propagandist said nothing about any destruction of the residential sector.
Almost 250 thousand Russian passports have already been issued in the occupied territory of Donetsk oblast.

"The pace of obtaining a passport of the Russian Federation has really accelerated, today we are approaching the mark of 250 thousand. We should do everything possible so that those wishing to become citizens of Russia could do this as quickly as possible", - Pushilin stated. Kozenko, in turn, conveyed letters of thanks to the best "employees of the DNR migration service", having explained that by the fact that the "DNR" was helping Russia by issuing passports of the Russian Federation. "Andrey Kozenko presented the best employees with letters of thanks for a very important work for the Russian Federation, because it is growing with new citizens", - Pushilin praised.
