"Positions of the Ukrainian army in the Luhansk region were fired at more than 20 times just yesterday. All the attacks were accomplished by the 32nd corps of the so-called Don Army, militants of the Don and Zaria battalions, which are not subordinate to the LPR leadership and acting at their own discretion proving that they are the real descendants of General Vlasov and Cossack punitive SS divisions," Moskal said.
