The number of armed conflicts between UAF units and Right Sector nationalist battalions in the so-called ATO zone continues to grow, LPR People’s Militia spokesperson Major Andrey Marochko reported today at a briefing.
“Information on the growing number of conflicts between Ukrainian armed forces’ units and Right Sector nationalist battalions continues to be confirmed,” he said.
On October 3rd, in the Cossack district of Stanitsa-Luganska, soldiers of the 28th separate mechanized brigade of the armed forces of Ukraine and punitive Right Sector forces clashed for 2 hours in a fight which dragged on with the use of heavy weapons,” Marochko reported.
In Marochko’s opinion, this speaks to the “absence of a unified leadership of the Ukrainian armed forces and the lack of desire on the part of nationalist units to obey the command.”
Marochko did not specify any losses in this inter-unity brawl. However, some information was leaked during the operations of so-called “ATO” volunteers, in particular from Kharkov. 24 soldiers from the conflict zone were brought to the hospital over three days, the ATO Nurse Community reported. According to them, “24 people arrived between Friday and Sunday. One was severely wounded while the rest suffered from mere trauma, wounds, contusions, and sickness.”
