Junta Militants Abducted Two LNR Peoples Armed Force soldiers in LNR Territory

Sergei Kozlov, First Deputy Commander of the LNR Peoples Armed Forces (LNR NM), told a briefing in Lugansk that junta militants abducted two LNR NM soldiers, “Yesterday, on 16 May, at about 13.00, near the line of demarcation on the Seversky Donets River, east of Veseloe, an enemy covert ops group attacked an LNR NM observation post. During the ensuing battle, the enemy aggressors wounded two of our soldiers, Yevgeni Yerofeyev Evgeny and Aleksandr Aleksandrov and took them captive. We assume that they’d torture them for further provocations. We don’t know what happened to them. The leadership of the Republic, together with the LNR NM command, established a group to negotiate their exchange. Yerofeyev and Alexandrov voluntarily joined the LNR NM a few months ago. In order to confirm our info, I brought extracts from the personal files of these guys (showing the journalists their enlistment contracts in the LNR NM and their military ID cards). I call on the OSCE monitoring mission to attend to this seizure of LNR NM soldiers by the Kiev forces, which occurred on our territory. The Ukrainian side is keen to resume hostilities in the Donbass; it continues to commit provocations to further accusations against the LNR NM. We call on the Ukrainian side to give up provocations and to adhere strictly to the Minsk agreements”.
