Donetsk, Mar 17 – DAN. Two civilians have been injured in the vicinity of Starognatovka, south of Donetsk, as a result of gunfire between Ukrainian troops, said the head of the DPR People's Militia command press service Daniil Bezsonov.

"On March 15, two civilians sustained injuries as a result of gunfire exchange between the troops of the 35th and 128th Ukrainian brigades, as the latter is to be substituted for the former."

The conflict was caused by dispute over control and tensions between nationalistic units. The units controlled by the Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov have been carrying out campaigns against the current Ukrainian President Petr Poroshenko, while special services controlled by Poroshenko are using activists sharing nationalistic views in order to find evidence and make it public proving that radicals are plotting a coup and to discredit them. *ot
