The village of Lobacheve is divided into two parts by a river. One part is controlled by the Ukrainian government, and the other by Russian-backed militants.
According to soldiers of Ukraine's 92nd Mechanized Brigade, Ingush people are mainly fighting with the militants against the Ukrainian troops, as evidenced by the flag of Ingushetia flying on the opposite side of the river. Chechens, Ossetians, and "Cossacks" platoon from Kaliningrad have also joined the ranks of the Russian terrorists.
The enemy subversive and reconnaissance groups try to cross the river at its different sections almost daily.
Russian militants have recently organized a training camp for saboteurs in the part of the village they control. Even 16-18-year-old boys are recruited to undergo explosives training there.
According to soldiers guarding the demarcation line in this village, the militants are planning to use teenagers who have obtained demolitions expertise in terrorist attacks in the Ukrainian troops' rear.
