The DPR People’s Militia regularly registers the AFU’s engineering reconnaissance of the front-line, attempted UAVs’ flights and activities of sabotage and reconnaissance groups, Spokesman for the DPR People’s Miltia Colonel Eduard Basurin stated.

“On April 4, the enemy once again attempted reconnaissance of mine-fields in front of our positions near Shumy.

Our defenders had to use standard weapons not prohibited by the Minsk agreements. In the course of the fleeting battle, the AFU servicemen retreated to their positions.

While examining the minefield, our military engineers found the body of an AFU soldier. He was identified as private soldier Baitala Igor Nikolayevich, born in 1995. At the same time, the JFO Command has been concealing the death of their serviceman for the second day and are not making any efforts to return the body to the relatives,” Eduard Basurin said.

The Colonel also noted that the DPR People’s Militia untis of the DPR are ready for any changes in the situation and scenarios of the enemy’s actions.
