MOSCOW, January 12. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Right Sector radicals had another skirmish with Ukrainian marines in the zone of the force operation in Donbas, Eduard Basurin, a spokesman for the defense ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), said on Tuesday.
"Conflicts between Right Sector radicals and servicemen of Ukrainian regular troops ending up in skirmishes were reported from the vicinity of the settlement of Lebedinskoye near Mariupol, in the zone of the force operation," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying.
Armed clashes, according to Basurin, were caused by struggle for control over freight traffic in this area. "Marines of the 36th Ukrainian brigade are seeking to squeeze nationalists, who are currently controlling all cargo traffic, out of this settlement," Basurin said.
On January 8, the DPR defense ministry spokesman already reported a conflict between Ukrainian marines and Right Sector nationalists. "The conflict was caused by marines’ looting in the buffer zone settlements," he said.
Earlier, the DPR defense ministry numerously reported clashes between various units of Ukrainian army in Donbas and paramilitary battallions.
