A punisher from the nationalist unit Pravy Sektor was killed and four were wounded as a result of shelling from Ukrainian Army positions near Marinka, said Eduard Basurin, deputy commander of the operational command of the DPR.

According to Basurin, a group of Pravy Sektor militants tried to sneak into the “gray zone” south of Maryinka, however, “as they approached, Ukrainian servicemen took the bandit grouping of nationalists for enemy saboteurs. After that, fire was opened on them from mortars,” said Basurin.
