Donetsk, Jan 16 – DAN. Ukrainian center for engineer units training in Khmelnytskyi Oblast is enrolling Donbass-born citizens in a minefield program, said the head of the DPR People’s Militia HQ press service Daniil Bezsonov.
“The center in Kamenets-Podolskiy is enrolling citizens in military engineering program. The applicants must be Donbass-born and have a strong awareness of the region.”
The trainers are foreign instructors. The successful completion of training allows enrollment in sabotage and reconnaissance squads.
One of the recent notorious incidents involving sabotage and reconnaissance squads occurred on December 28, 2018 when two enemy’s squads attempted to approach Republican positions, stumbled onto a minefield and had to retreat suffering losses. The incident happened on the Mariupol direction on the eve of the Christmas ceasefire. *ot
