A drunk driver on a car with Russian numbers drove to the sidewalk and hit four people in Makiivka village controlled by the militants of the so-called "Donetsk People’s Republic" on January 1.
Two combat grenades and a camouflage jacket were later found in the car. This was reported in the social network VKontakte.
The incident occurred near the car market. The car numbers are the ones of the Krasnodar territory of Russia.
The driver did not have documents with him.
As it was reported earlier a member of the so-called ‘Donetsk People’s Republic’ did minor damage to a transport of OSCE monitoring mission in Donbas.
In “DPR”-controlled Makiivka (12km north-east of Donetsk), a man damaged an SMM vehicle. On 3 January, positioned in Makiivka, the SMM saw two apparently intoxicated men who claimed to be “DPR” members, one of whom approached the SMM making angry remarks. Shortly thereafter, the SMM saw the same man kick the plastic radiator grille of an SMM vehicle parked 10-15m from its position, causing minor damage to the vehicle,’ the report says.
The observers said they left the area immediately.
