Occupiers at the Marinka checkpoint handed over the body of our serviceman to the 10th Edelweiss Mountain Assault Brigade on April 6. This was reported on the brigade's Facebook. The soldier disappeared from the brigade in the evening on April 3 without weapons. He was characterized positively in the unit, he had no admonitions from the command.

Pumping station of the first rise of the Yuzhnodonbassky water pipeline came under fire from the militants on April 6. This was reported by the press service of the Voda Donbassa public utility company. The water supply to consumers has been stopped. Residents of about 50 settlements, both in CADO and in free Ukraine, were left without water.
The occupiers of CADO opened the Olenivka checkpoint, located opposite the Novotroitske checkpoint, for one day yesterday, on April 5. 198 people were able to use the humanitarian corridor in both directions, - the fake "DNR Ministry of Emergency Situations" reported on April 6. Thus, 20 vehicles and 88 people were let into the occupied territory. 26 vehicles and 110 people were let into the territory of free Ukraine. "15 people applied for assistance, 5 of them for medical assistance", - the occupants reported, having added that since the beginning of the year, 712 people have applied for assistance, 19 of them - for medical assistance.
Occupiers of the so-called "DNR" continue to take bribes and threaten the residents of CADO during the inspection of citizens' belongings at their Olenivka checkpoint. They wrote this in the separatist segment of social networks. "I would like to talk about the "work" of "the Ministry of State Security officers" at the Olenivka checkpoint. Yesterday, when checking documents and bags of the family leaving the "DNR", which lasted 1.5 hours (there were many things), documents for real estate located in the territory controlled by Ukraine were found. The documents were confirmed by all the necessary certificates of inheritance, death of the owner, kinship, etc. The employees politely reported that "documents of a foreign state cannot be IMPORTED and EXPORTED to/from the territory of the DNR", - the message said. "To the question "why were there no questions with these documents at the entrance to the "republic" and what regulatory documents stipulated the ban?", the answer was given - "we will call a group from Donetsk now and you will go to the department for investigation", - they threatened at the "DNR" checkpoint. The problem was resolved, although the message does not indicate the "price paid". The situation was "resolved on the spot", as it was necessary to urgently cross the checkpoints. A question to the leaders of these "campaigners" - did they share with you or not? And how does such an attitude towards people affect the "image" of the "republic" and "special services"?", - is naively worried in local social networks.

The victim was sent to the hospital", - Kulemzin wrote.
