The Ukrainian punishers continue committing offenses in the AFU-controlled territory of Donbass. For instance, on October 3, at about 10:30 pm in the city of Kramatorsk, a serviceman of the airfield guard company, senior soldier Danilov, was detained while on alert duty. The serviceman resisted during the detention, being in a state of strong alcoholic intoxication. As it turned out, an hour before the arrest, Danilov left his post for a while and went home, where he inflicted serious bodily harm to his cohabitant Grachova. The command of the unit tried to conceal the incident. Representatives of the Ministry of Internal Affairs refused to file the application of Gracheva due to the criminal collusion of the police with the command of the commandant's office number 85 of the city of Kramatorsk.
