The man was taken to the Svitlodarsk city hospital by the forces of the medical unit of one of the mechanized brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Leader of the "LNR" Leonid Pasechnik hopes to receive the latest developments of the Russian military-industrial complex from Russia. He stated this in an interview with a Russian propaganda media outlet. "The appearance of such names as Pantsir, Solntsepyok, Orlan, Kornet and others in our military arsenal would be a cold sobering shower for some overheated warriors and Ukrainian propagandists", - Pasechnik called the desired types of Russian weapons. As previously reported, Russia regularly supplies weapons, equipment and ammunition to the occupied Donbas. This is done illegally, through an uncontrolled section of the Ukrainian-Russian border.
Rent-seeking behavior of officials from the Russian Federation during purchases from the institutions of the "DNR" is flourishing in the occupied territory of the Donetsk oblast. This was reported by creator of theterrorist Vostok Battalion Alexander Khodakovsky on a social network. "Today they report to me: a state institution purchased equipment for eight million, two of which went as a bung to officials. In response, I bleated something like: yes, this is life... but imagine, I say, that if it were not for this bung, then the officials would not get their backsides off, and the institution would be left without equipment... Then I think: when did this become the norm in my head? When did it stop causing resentment? Maybe, I contribute to someone else's bullshit this way?", - Khodakovsky moralized. "Here, before the New Year, the heads of cities and districts were demanded a tribute in considerable amounts to the "peace fund". Who have established such rules, - Seagull and Patriot? I doubt. Then who are these people? This has become the norm as well, and I do not like it eventually. Looking at this, you involuntarily think: if only there would be a war - it would shake the swamp a little. But the war will end…", - the terrorist philosophized.
Residents of CADLO, who received Russian citizenship under the simplified procedure, can become members of the United Russia party ruling in the Russian Federation without a probationary period stipulated by the charter. This was stated to the separatist media by the State Duma deputy from United Russia Viktor Vodolatsky. "Now there is no question of supporters. The residents of Donbas won the right to cross this step over with their heroism, they are immediately accepted as members of the party. This became possible thanks to (Secretary of the General Council of United Russia - OstroV) Andrey Turchak, who submitted his a proposal that Russian citizens living in the Donbas and assigned to the Rostov branch of the party could go through this procedure without a probationary period", - Vodolatsky stated.
