A civilian woman was injured upon stepping on a landmine in Donbas combat area, as she was trying to cross the disengagement line, bypassing the checkpoint. Yuriy Butusov, the reporter wrote this on Facebook.
"A wounded woman, citizen of Ukraine approached the positions of Ukrainian troops in the area of Novotroitske (Donetsk region, - 112 International). She wanted to walk the path near the closest checkpoint, but she stepped on a landmine while crossing the frontline", reads the post.
The journalist assumed that the triggered device was a Russian-made anti-personnel mine that the Russian mercenaries plant along the disengagement line.
'The woman's identity and the circumstances of her appearance on our positions are established (...) It was not clear why she came there, so she was blindfolded. Ukrainian warriors provided medical assistamce; they did not detain her, and took her to a hospital", Butusov concluded.
The planting of anti-personnel mines during military actions is banned by an international convention.
