"Both militants turned out to be the Russian nationals. One of them, a resident of the Krasnodar Krai Vladimir Vladimirovich Lyubimov, born in 1988, was killed on the spot. Another one, a resident of the city of Astrakhan Sergey Valeryevich Mikhailov, born in 1972, received fragmentation wounds," the spot report reads.
The ATO headquarters doesn’t rule out that the Russian state-run media will try to accuse the Ukrainian troops for violating the Minsk accords and cast blame for the losses among the militants upon the Ukrainian military personnel.
The measures to find out whether these militants belonged to the regular Russian troops are being taken, the agency has said.
