War correspondent Semyon Pegov has reported details of an earlier assassination attempt on the Defense Minister of the DPR,  Vladimir Kononov.

“I just spoke with the Minister of Defense of the DPR, Vladimir Kononov, on the phone, his voice is calm, everyone is okay – including his staff” he said.

“The fact that Kiev wants to eliminate the Tsar (this is the call sign of the Minister), has been known for a few months.  Before the new year, his security found a sniper’s hideaway in an abandoned building, from which the Minister was being observed. Measures were taken on time. But the saboteurs dared to come closer – the first and third floors of the Ministry have been shelled, but there were no casualties, ” Pegov added.

The shelling was done from a RPG-26 “Aglen” (Soviet anti-tank grenade), mounted on a self-made tripod, which probably was activated by radio command.
