Comment from I. I. Strelkova
- Someone else has to fly such a plane, which, including, will be impossible to leave. The version with the plane, full of dead, exciting, of course, but somehow the meaning is not visible.
I. I .: "Firstly, not all people on the plane were dead before the fall.
Secondly, a large number of medicines, serum and other things were found on the plane, which is not typical of an ordinary liner. It seems that there was a medical special.
Thirdly, I do not insist on anything (yet). I just literally talked with two people who had personally collected the bodies immediately after the fall (both from Shakhtersk and arrived at the site less than half an hour after the disaster). From their words and writing. They stressed that many of the corpses turned out to be “completely bloodless” - as if the blood had coagulated long before the disaster. They also noted the strongest corpse smell, noted by many local residents - such a smell could not form in half an hour in any weather, and the weather was cloudy yesterday, not too hot.
Fourthly, I myself am extremely suspicious of all kinds of “conspiracy studies”, but 18 of our fighters poisoned by chemistry at the positions in Semenovka, shootings of members of militia families and other “little joys of svyazymi patriots” convinced me that the Ukrainian authorities are capable of any meanness.
The pilots, of course, were quite alive - the whole cabin (and the front part was well preserved) was literally covered with their blood. "

Message from the Vice-Speaker of the Supreme Council of the DPR, Vladimir Makovich
“Donetsk People’s Republic creates its own police force. A new structure is being created, which we hope will be spared from the loop of corruption and abuse that has been dragged along by the Ukrainian police. The republic’s police will be subordinate to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, which was headed by Oleg Bereza the day before. The DPR police will rely on Russian experience. From Russian colleagues, our police will not only take the name of the department. In the new law on the police there are many intersections with the Russian analog , Contains similar requirements to the ministers of law and order. In addition, will be developed a new form of police officers close to the Russian model. "

It is reported that the 30 mechanized brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine entered the city limits. Apparently, she was redeployed from Lysychansk and was designed not so much to take the city, for which she simply did not have the strength, but to cover the retreat of the units and divisions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the National Guard under the city that had been defeated before.
