Commanders of the AFU units continue practicing the concealment of crimes and incidents occurring at the advanced positions from the superior command. Thus, during the bombardment from the positions of the 34th separate battalion of the 57th separate mechanized infantry brigade in the vicinity of Pesky locality in the Donetsk suburbs, a mortar detachment charged a mortar twice, being in a state of alcoholic intoxication. As a result of the explosion, four Ukrainian servicemen received heavy shrapnel wounds.

Trying to conceal the incident, the commander of the 34th battalion of the 57 separate mechanized infantry brigade Onanishich reported to the command on his subordinates' having got wounded due to shelling allegedly carried out by the DPR Armed Forces. According to a tradition, the so-called 'ATO' headquarters hastened to present alcoholics who bombard residential houses as innocent victims.
