Our reconnaissance detected the presence of instructors from canada outside Avdeyevka in the responsibility zone of the 72nd separate mechanized brigade. In addition, a platoon of snipers of the 128th separate mountain infantry brigade arrived at the vicinity of the Mayorsk railway station to carry out a combat mission.
The so-called Ukrainian patriots, who had formally joined the AFU staff, did not change their negative attitude towards the population of Donbass, even citizens residing in the territory temporarily occupied by Kiev. Nationalists still consider civilians to be third-class people and with impunity commit against them nearly all the crimes prewritten by the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
For instance, on July 22, several servicemen of the 81st separate air mobile brigade, spending their time in the village of Druzhkovka in a state of intoxication, molested a young girl and attempted rape. Having seen this, concerned citizens of Druzhkovka prevented the arbitrariness of the Ukrainian armed forces' 'elite' by applying physical force to them. Currently, the failed abusers are hospitalized at Chasov-Yar with numerous injuries. One of the paratroopers Krysov is in a serious condition with a traumatic brain injury and concussion.
On the evening of July 24, three servicemen of the 28th separate mechanized brigade, having taken a good portion of alcohol, decided to continue drinking in the vicinity of Bogdanovka locality. Having arrived at a local store, Ukrainian soldiers demanded from a shop-assistant to sell them vodka and food as a donation to the 'defenders of Ukraine.' Refusing to fulfill their demands, a woman was brutally beaten, after what the soldiers robbed the store. In addition, the so-called 'defenders' from the 28th separate mechanized brigade caused serious bodily harm to a customer who came at that moment, took his money and quietly returned to the deployment area.
