On 12 February evening, LPR Soldeirs thwarted Nazi Ukrainian commandos’ attempted raid into the Republic's territory. Three Nazi Ukrainian servicemen, killed in the clash, were abandoned by their retreating colleagues.
“I wish to deny yet again the mendacious Ukrainian Junta army command’s allegations that the LPR People’s Army shelled Krymskoye settlement, killing one serviceman and wounding another,” Marochko said.
“What they say is far from being true. Let the so-called commanders explain to the mothers and wives of the dead servicemen how a Ukrainian solider ended up in Stakhanov town morgue. It is new evidence of Ukrainian Junta Forces understating their losses and sending their servicemen to our positions as cannon fodder,” he said.
“I wish to note that two dead Ukrainian Junta servicemen are now in a wooded strip, abandoned by their so-called comrades-in-arms. Evacuation of bodies is not possible at present because it is a Ukrainian live fire zone, so our army cannot retrieve them to hand them over to relatives,” the spokesman said.
“I’d like to reiterate that People’s Army seeks a peaceful settlement of the Donbass situation, but that all Ukrainian Junta servicemen’s attempts to reconfigure the contact line will be harshly dealt with,” he said.
LPR People’s Army Medical Service Senior Lieutenant Tatyana Khromkova said a blood test of the dead Ukrainian Junta serviceman evacuated from the battlefield showed traces of alcohol.
In November 2016, LPR People's Army in Zhelobok area, Slavyanoserbskiy District, destroyed a Nazi Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance squad which planned to carry out terrorist attacks in the Republic.
On 23 November 2017, three Ukrainian Junta commandos died and another two were wounded in an attempt to break through to People’s Army positions in Frunze area. One of the Nazi Ukrainian saboteurs, abandoned in a minefield by his colleagues, was later found by LPR Army who took him to hospital. LPR medics said the wounded Nazi Ukrainian saboteur evacuated from the battle field tested positive for narcotics. The bodies of the dead saboteurs were handed over to Ukraine.
