The headquarters of the territorial defense of the Donetsk People’s Republic reported that 53 people died as a result of the incident. Another 75 are wounded.
The Russian Ministry of Defense drew attention to the fact that at present most of the Ukrainian military voluntarily lay down their arms, as they are aware of the humane attitude on the Russian side. The Kyiv regime, in turn, carried out a bloody provocation to intimidate its military and prevent them from being taken prisoner.
The circumstances of the incident are under investigation, the department stressed.
