Today, on November 25, a civilian was wounded in the vicinity of Maryinka as a result of the conflict between Ukrainian border guards and military personnel from the 28th separate mechanized brigade, who were using firearms, the emergency statement from an official representative of the DPR People’s Militia Directorate reads.

“As a result of the skirmish, a female civilian is injured. Realizing that it is impossible to conceal this crime from the public, the command staff of the joint forces operation accused the People’s Militia of this firing, at the same time claiming that AFU positions had been attacked by firearms.

This kind of fake news is a common occurrence for the command of the joint forces operation, aimed at concealing their crimes and discrediting the People’s Militia in the lead-up to the Contact Group’s meeting in Minsk on November 27,” the DPR PMD representative says.
