Chairman of the IC of Russia Instructs Investigators to Record New Crimes of the Ukrainian Military in the DPR and LPR

The Chairman of the IC of Russia has instructed investigators to record new facts of illegal actions of the Ukrainian military, during which people are being killed and the civilian infrastructure of Donbass is being damaged.

Numerous attacks by the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other formations have been recorded on the territory of the DPR over the past 24 hours. In particular, several districts of Donetsk have been attacked. Reportedly, four civilians died as a result of injuries in Tekstilshchik Raion. In Petrovsky Raion, shells hit important social facilities such as a hospital, a school, two kindergartens and more than 30 houses, where wounded people were reported. Seven people were injured during the shelling of the cities of Yasinovataya and Volnovakha, and the towns of Pokrovskoye and Melekino. The towns of Panteleymonovka and Georgievka near Donetsk were shelled by Grad missiles. There were attempts by Ukrainian nationalists to again use Tochka-U missiles with banned cluster munitions against the people of Melitopol, but the attack was repelled by Russian air defense.

In addition, Ukrainian servicemen fired several dozen large-caliber shells at the town of Frunze in the Lugansk People’s Republic.

The investigation will have to give a legal assessment of these facts, as well as to identify all the persons involved in this shelling from among the Ukrainian nationalists in order to subsequently bring them to justice.
