MOSCOW, February 19. /TASS/. Leader of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Alexander Zakharchenko says the gunshot wound to the leg he received in Debaltsevo on February 17 was the work of a sniper, he told journalists on Thursday.
"A gunshot wound to the leg. A sniper was working [on me] from the area near the city hospital," he said.
When asked about his state of health, Zakharchenko said the wound let him get enough sleep. "In Debaltsevo, I haven’t slept for three days," he said.
The militia leader confirmed his willingness to participate in the celebration of the upcoming Defender of the Motherland Day celebrated on February 23.
