Donetsk, Mar 1 - DAN. “Right Sector” nationalistic group militants set up their own checkpoint near Donetsk, DPR Operations Command deputy commander Eduard Basurin said on Thursday.

"Right Sector militants organised an illegal checkpoint on a country road between Maryinka and Kurakhovo at which they stop civilians’ cars to check drivers and passengers,” Basurin said.

According to DPR intelligence, Ukrainian nationalists are looking for the residents who they believe are “abetting separatists.” “People are accused of aiding and abetting even if a search finds DPR mobile operator Phoenix sim-cards on them,” Basurin said. *jk
