In the mountain village of Ploska near the Horlecha checkpoint, two men attacked military commissariat employees at a checkpoint on March 6. The driver of a VAZ car first ran over a representative of the military commissariat, then got out of the car and hit him in the forearm with the butt of an ax. Another man, also with an ax, hit the serviceman in the shoulder.

Valeriy Polyanchuk, head of the Selyatyn municipality in Chernivtsi Oblast, noted that the son of one of the men who attacked the military commissariat workers went missing in action. The attackers are brothers, Polyanchuk said.

The spokeswoman for the regional military commissariat, Tetiana Haydashchuk, told reporters that the workers were transferred from combat units, and one of them was wounded at the front. The soldiers were attacked after they wanted to check the brothers’ military registration documents.
