MOSCOW, April 11. /TASS/. Confrontation among Ukrainian Armed Forces’ units in Donbass has resulted in armed conflicts, the spokesman for the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) said on Saturday.
"We have registered cases of a sharpening confrontation not just between Ukrainian regular army’s units and ‘volunteer battalions’ but also among units of Ukraine’s Armed Forces," the Donetsk news agency quoted Eduard Basurin as saying.
On Friday reports came that Ukraine’s 93rd separate mechanised brigade had demanded from the battalion of the Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists to abandon their positions outside the village of Peski.
"Today, on Saturday, regular army units got involved in an armed conflict," Basurin said.
"I would like to attract your attention to the fact that Kiev’s authorities describe the episodes when Ukrainian units open fire on one another as DPR militia’s violations of the ceasefire. And [Kiev] systematically reports to the OSCE mission and Ukraine-controlled media about it," he said.
