The so-called "member of the DNR Public Chamber" Alexander Bolotin, was detained in occupied Donetsk for "public incitement to hatred". This was reported by the so-called "DNR MIA". Employees of the local "police" detained Bolotin on suspicion of committing "acts aimed at inciting hatred and enmity committed in public". "The suspect is convicted of posting a number of videos on the Internet information and telecommunications network, containing knowingly false, unconfirmed information aimed at inciting hatred and enmity, as well as disgracing the honor, dignity and good standing of the authorities and law enforcement agencies of the Donetsk People's Republic", - militants from the "MIA" stated. Recently, Alexander Bolotin posted angry reports on social networks about the "police" detaining residents of the occupied territories for the lack of the "DNR passports", as well as raising issues of poor nutrition in kindergartens and schools of the "republic".
Russian artillery cadets from St. Petersburg arrived in the occupied part of Luhansk oblast to shoot at the Ukrainian positions. This was stated by manager of the Return Alive charitable foundation Andriy Rymaruk in an interview to Ukrayinska Pravda. "At the moment, we have information that the next batch of artillery cadets from St. Petersburg arrived in the "LNR". The cadets also arrived in 2016, and shot at Avdiivka. If my memory serves me right, they fired 500 or 600 shells at Avdiivka overnight. The situation was the same in the Mariupol direction in 2017. Our intelligence reported that cadets came from Russia and they would pass the test", - Rymaruk said. According to the former military man, the visits of Russian artillery cadets to the occupied territory for "passing tests" have long been no secret.
The "DNR security officials" detained "rector" of the so-called "Donbass Law Academy" Sergey Goncharov in occupied Donetsk on suspicion of organizing contract killing. This was stated in the report of the fake "DNR MIA". It says that Goncharov's crime plan appeared as a result of conflict with the leadership of the so-called "Ministry of Education of the Republic". "Because of official disagreements, the criminal decided to physically eliminate the heads of the DNR Ministry of Education", - the "MIA" reported. It was noted that Goncharov could get in touch with the killer, using his old connections in criminal rings. He handed over personal data, photos, addresses and routes of the victims to the performer, spoke in detail about their daily routine and made a plan for the murder. Under the terms of the "contract", the killer had to present Goncharov with evidence of the crime in order to receive remuneration, and then immediately leave the territory of the "republic". However, the "killer" ratted the customer and Goncharov was detained. A "criminal case" was instituted against the "rector" under one of the articles of the "DNR criminal code" (lucrative killing or assassination). The maximum penalty for the commission of this crime is provided in the form of life imprisonment or death penalty.
