Went gently, properly, with the necessary distance, control of the situation, the commander controlling the movement. It was morning, about 11 hours, but the dense forest shade well-masked group, and at a distance of 20 metres silhouettes of scouts were already hardly noticeable,” – said Butusov seen on video.

Obviously, the reconnaissance group of the enemy managed to detect the silhouettes, and opened fire. It was a great luck for our fighters, visibility was extremely limited due to foliage. However, for the same reason, the enemy fire did not last long and was not efficient. The video shows how he opened our fire, and as Alexander himself has from his machine. But the enemy was hard to see and shoot the horn, the commander ceased firing. And then he fell to the ground”, – the journalist wrote.

The condition was serious, because smartly said nothing and did not groan. His hand raised (his fighters. – Ed.) – and she fell. And then it was obvious that the wounds on his feet was imposed turnstiles, and it began to bear. But then the band broke up. Experienced gunner broke away for some reasons from the group and left to himself. And another experienced fighter was left with three newcomers. They say now that the group commander was killed. Therefore, the commander’s body left. He removed the weapon and important types of equipment, including the camcorder. When filming the camera, flashed face,” – writes Butusov.
