OSLO, May 23. /TASS/. Norway’s authorities know nothing about the death of the country’s national in Donbass where he allegedly took part in fighting on the side of Kiev forces, Norwegian Foreign Ministry spokesman told TASS on Monday.
"We have no information on this. According to the reported data, the death occurred during the weekend (on May 21-22). In this case, we would have been already informed about this," Frode Andersen said.
Earlier in the day, official spokesman for the militia in the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic Andrey Marochko said a mercenary from Norway died of a gunshot wound during a conflict with gunmen of the Aidar nationalist battalion in Stanitsa Luganskaya, in eastern Ukraine. The Norwegian national was in Donbass as part of a group of mercenaries of one of private military companies, he said.
Over the past 24 hours, Ukrainian forces shelled the Lugansk republic’s militia positions seven times. The Kiev forces opened fire at the settlements of Kalinovo, Logvinovo, Kalinovka and Lozovoye from armored fighting vehicles, grenade launchers and small arms. The Lugansk republic said sniper groups were active on the Ukrainian side.
