Ukrainian army does not use drones in the Donbass, so the information about shot down drone near Donetsk does not correspond to reality, told RIA Novosti on Monday, the speaker of the headquarters of the special operations of the armed forces of Ukraine Vasyl Labay.

Earlier on Sunday, Deputy commander of the operational command of the DPR Eduard Basurin told reporters that under the Donetsk shot down the drone of the Ukrainian security forces, adjusted the fire on the territory of the self-proclaimed Donetsk people’s Republic.

As said Labay, «I do not confirm this information.» According to him, the Ukrainian army opened fire in response only in case of direct threat to the military and only anti-personnel weapons.

«For such weapons drones are not needed, this is pure fake,» said Labay.
