The statement reads: "We remind that the enemy propaganda mouthpieces have blamed the military of the 14th Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine of slaughtering civilians near the village of Olenivka, located on the territory temporarily occupied by the militants, on April 27, 2016.
"A great number of facts exposing the lies of the criminals of the so-called "Donetsk People's Republic" have already been published earlier. Here is another one in addition to them: the information concerning the 14th Separate Mechanized Brigade, which servicemen have allegedly been involved in the tragedy according to the militants' leaders.
"Please be advised that this detachment has stopped carrying out combat missions within the anti-terrorist operation long ago. Therefore, this fact has once again proved that the information attacks of the enemy are full of deceit and sheer cynicism."
