Ukrainian militant blown up on own minefield in Donbass
As a result of the lack of coordination among the fighters of the ATO, a Ukrainian serviceman taking part in the genocide of civilians of the former region of Ukraine got blown up in his own minefield in Donbass. This was reported by Eduard Basurin, deputy commander, operational command of the Donetsk Peoples Republic.
“One more incident that reflects the life of servicemen of the Armed Forces in the ATO zone occurred yesterday: for example, in one mountain infantry battalion, as a result of the explosion of its fragmentation mine, one more was killed and another soldier was wounded, callsigns Dale and Murzik.
“This, according to preliminary data, became possible as a result of inconsistency between the engineering units of the mine-installing brigade and the units located on the front line,” he said.
Earlier the information agency Novorossiya reported* that representatives of the Ukrainian armed formations have established trade in maps of mine fields, and the practice of buying and selling these charts is becoming increasingly large.
It should be noted that cases of Ukrainian militants killed on their own minefields in the Donbass are not uncommon. Several days ago, a militant of the Armed Forces, taking part in the genocide of the people of Donbass, died in his own minefield.* Another was wounded. Earlier,* four Ukrainian saboteurs blew up on their own stretch in the occupied territory of the Lugansk Peoples Republic because of the uncoordinated actions of the commanders of their Armed Forces.
Intelligence of the People’s Militia has repeatedly noted the activation of Ukrainian saboteur activities near the contact line. In July,* one of the groups of VSU subversives was blown up on its own mine in the occupied territory of the LNR. Also in the occupied territory of the DPR in the summer, four Ukrainian security forces perished, blown up on their own minefield.
