It should be noted, that according to operational data, the criminal situation continues to deteriorate on the territories of so-called ‘republics’. First of all – attacks on civilians, looting and robbery carried out by armed militants, whose leaders almost can not take them under control.

So, this month in the Primorsk village two local residents have disappeared while driving a car with a trailer. Two weeks later their bodies were found in the Sosnovske village in the trailer with bullet wounds to the head. Their car disappeared.

Also recently near Oktyabr village of Novoazovskyi district, on the way out to the Ukrainian side, the militants detained the residents’ civilian vehicles loaded with seafood. After checking the documents so-called ‘militia’ confiscated all the goods without any explanation.
