Ukrainian National Police Captain Killed Saving Civilians in Car Under Fire by Russian-Backed Fighters
6 years
A captain of the National Police who tried to save civilian passengers in a car from shelling was killed near Zaitsevo, reported, quoting the ATO [Anti-Terrorist Operation] Facebook page. His name was not provided. A civilian woman was injured as well.

The ATO had earlier reported that Russian-backed fighters were firing on residential areas in Zaytsevo and Mayorsk, and provided pictures.

In particular, a civilian automobile fell under the line of fire of the militants. As a result, a local woman was wounded.

The consequences could have been far worse if an officer of the National Police of Ukraine who happened to be nearby had not reacted. The officer, risking his own life, did everything possible to stop the car and lead it out of the line of fire.

Meanwhile the militants were aiming right at civilians. 

Unfortunately, the rescue of innocent people who became hostages to the latest crime of the militants cost the brave captain of the National Police of Ukraine his life. A bullet from the occupiers struck the Ukrainian Hero.

A transformer sub-station was also damaged on Arsenyev Street in Zaytsevo as well.

The ATO counted a total of 29 attacks by militants from the Donetsk Airport and northern outskirts of Donets on their positions in Opytnoye, Peski and Avdeyevka as well as Novgorodskoye and Luganskoye with heavy machine guns, grenade-launchers and firearms, where militants fired from a BMP.

They said there was no shooting in the area of Mariupol, however.
