Ukraine intel: Russian occupiers kill local resident in Donetsk region
Russian-backed occupation troops have killed a local resident in Donetsk region, eastern Ukraine, and resorted to fabrication of evidence in order to accuse the deceased of an attack on them, according to the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine's Defense Ministry.
"The presence of the Russian occupation forces in the temporarily occupied areas in eastern Ukraine translates into escalation in the region and civilian deaths. On August 25, two servicemen from the 5th separate motorized rifle brigade (Makiyivka) of the 1st Army Corps (Donetsk) of the Russian Armed Forces killed a civilian. Having committed the crime, the Russian servicemen tried to fabricate evidence to accuse the deceased of attacking the military," the Ukrainian military intelligence agency's press service wrote on Facebook.
