Ukrainian border guards stole money from a pensioner whilst verifying her documents at the Mayorsk checkpoint, and after the woman realised what had happened she died from a heart attack. This was reported by the head of the press service of the Leadership of the DPR People’s militia Daniil Bezsonov.

“Ukrainian border guards pulled out some of the money that was lying in the cover of the passport of the 79-year-old woman. The attempts of the old woman to appeal to their conscience did not bring positive results. The heart of the agitated elderly person couldn’t endure such stress. She fell ill and died in front of the offenders”
