Tymchuk: Militant kills local resident near Maryinka
A local resident, who has been trying to leave the temporarily occupied territory in Donbas, has been shot dead by one of Russian-backed militants at a checkpoint of the so-called Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) near the village of Oleksandrivka not far from the town of Maryinka in Donetsk region, head of the Information Resistance Group and MP Dmytro Tymchuk wrote on Facebook on Friday.
"A local resident, who was trying to leave the temporarily occupied territory, was shot dead at a DPR-controlled checkpoint near the village of Oleksandrivka. The DPR's leaders have forbidden covering this incident in the media. The 'official' reason for a terrorist's using weapons was an alleged attack by the civilian," Tymchuk said.
