According to the information we have, due to the lack of elementary places of heating, the military personnel from the 28 detachment of a separate mechanized brigade during combat duty in the positions lit a fire to keep warm. But, being intoxicated, did not pay attention to the VOG-25 grenade lying near the fire. As a result of the explosion, one soldier was killed, three were injured- said Bezsonov.
He added that the security forces presented the case as shelling from the forces of the DPR. But the location of the positions of the parties in this area does not allow firing from this type of weapon.
At ATO headquarters, the situation was hurried to be presented as shelling from the DPR from a grenade launcher, but did not take into account the fact that the maximum range of a VOG-25 grenade used for grenade launchers is no more than 400 meters. And the distance to the positions of the Armed Forces of the DPR exceeds the firing range- he noted, passes RIA News
