The Ukrainian army opened response fire to each of the attacks.

The Ukrainian Army HQ adds that the Russian occupation commanders started separating the militants by their “reliability”.

“According to our sources, the militant commanders make lists of people, who were captured, have a criminal record, or relatives in Ukraine. In future, they will form the front army units, to actually become “expendable”. Certain commanders offer to clean out the bios for bribes,” the message says.
