MOSCOW, May 20. /TASS/. The capture of two militiamen of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) was carried out by Georgia’s special forces, the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Defense Ministry spokesman Eduard Basurin said Wednesday.
"According to specified data of our intelligence, a sabotage group of Georgian special forces was in that area on that day," Basurin said.
Deputy commander of the LPR People’s Militia Sergey Kozlov said May 17 that a sabotage and reconnaissance group of Ukrainian servicemen crossed the disengagement line between the Ukrainian army and LPR militiamen - the Seversky Donets River - on May 16 and attacked a watch post of an LPR People’s Militia detached reconnaissance battalion to the east of the city of Schastye.
"During ensuing fighting, two of our servicemen - Yerofeyev Yevgeny Vladimirovich and Alexandrov Alexander Anatolyevich - were wounded and taken prisoner by Ukrainian saboteurs," Kozlov said.
