Five servicemen of the Ukrainian army were killed as a result of deliberate burning of a base military camp at a training ground near Teterevka village of Zhytomir region of Ukraine, spokesperson of Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) People’s Militia Major Andrey Marochko stated during a briefing in Lugansk Information Center.
“It became known that the other day the servicemen of the 25th Brigade deliberately set a base camp on fire during the operational training at a training ground near Teterevka village of Zhitomirskaya region,” Marochko explained.
“The commanders carefully conceal this incident from their superior officers,” the spokesperson of LPR People’s Militia stressed.
He also claimed that “the Ukrainian Command continue to engage the foreign instructors.”
“It became known that the units of the 24th Brigade of the Ukrainian army were supplied with the M18 Claymore mines made in the U.S. The Canadian instructor for explosive training has arrived in the 2nd Battalion because of the absence of the specialist [in the Brigade] specializing in the placing of such mines,” Marochko informed.
He added that the People’s Militia is maintaining the ceasefire and adheres the Minsk Agreements.
“Our actions are aimed at the peaceful settlement of the conflict in Donbass, but LPR People’s Militia reserves the right to liberate the territory occupied by Kiev criminals in the case of the escalation of the conflict,” the spokesperson of LPR People’s Militia stressed.
