Ukrainian Army Shelled Donetsk City Killing Woman And Damaging Civilian Infrastructure

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

On July 18, the Ukrainian Armed Forces (UAF) shelled Kievky district of Donetsk city, the capital of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in eastern Ukraine, the DPR Defense Forces reported.

The UAF used 120mm and 82mm mortars, automatic grenade launchers and fire arms. The shelling killed an old woman and damaged two infant schools.

The UAF also used 152mm shells to target the village of samsonovo in the DPR. There were no reports on casualties as a result of this incident.

According to the DPR, the UAF violated the ceasefire regime 14 times during the last 24 hours. In own turn, the UAF also accused DPR forces of violating the ceasefire.

On July 17, OSCE Special Representative Martin Sajdik said in the Belarussian capital of Minsk that the Contact Group on the situation in eastern Ukraine (involves representatives of Kiev, the DPR and the LPR) had negotiated the terms of an indefinite ceasefire in Donbass.

According to Sajdik, the Contact Group underscored “it was of importance to approve and follow the orders to cease fire, which will be announced by the sides’ superior commanders in public statements.”

The OSCE envoy said the Contact Group emphasized it was necessary to “refuse from conducting any offensives along with reconnaissance and sabotage operations, from using any weapons, including sniper fire, from deploying heavy weapons in the civil infrastructure facilities, including schools, kindergartens, hospitals and public facilities.”

The indefinite ceasefire is set to start on July 21.

    As if the orcs can follow a cease fire.

    • Drinas

      They will not unless they are forced to do so. And only Russia can force them..

      • Toronto Tonto

        No they cant .

      • Concrete Mike

        That would be called begging for mercy.

        Its sad it will have to come to that. Stupid fascists nazis. Im sure regular ukrainian people are not happy with this arrangement forced upon them.

        All about the benjamins appatently

  • Drinas

    All of the Kremlin’s (Putin personally) promises of protecting the Russky narod (Russian people/nation) are empty or at best half-empty.
    The geniuses at the Kremlin new very well that if the line of fire is so close to the major urban center of Donbass, Donetsk City that is, the Ukrainians can shell with impunity and no consequences. But they let it happen anyway. Answering in kind is prohibited to the forces of DNR, LNR so as not to upset Putin’s “Western Partners”. A real Russian patriot would know how to deal with Kiev and its criminals..

    • Toronto Tonto

      Russia will pay for this invasion and theft of crimea and the downing of MH17 .

      • Drinas

        You can’t steal something that is already yours.. If anything, Ukraine got punished for the thievery.

      • Dontlietome

        MH17 ………………not only are you uninformed, but grossly ignorant too. Your stance is as perverse as the USA’s, NATOs and the EU. Do you know how many Jews live on the Krim ? 10’s of thousands………….They ………….all of them, voted to cede from the Ukraine especially after some of their folk were burned alive by UKie murder gangs in Berdansk. Israel remains quiet about this especially after they supported the Maidan rebellion and their snipers killed many protesters.

  • TiredOfBsToo

    Seems like the only way to stop these Nazis shelling people’s homes is for Russia to allow the DPR & LPR to push the Nazi contact line more towards Kiev and out of reach of people’s homes. The DPR pushed these Nazis back once before not long after the US regime sponsored coup. It’s time to do it again!!!

    • Toronto Tonto

      Maybe putin should pull his troops out of Ukraine EH .

      • Dontlietome

        He hasn’t got any there, but there are lots of Canadian Mercs, in fact ALL of them are mercenaries, as are the US and NATO “Advisor’s”. What are they advising on………………… how to kill civilians more efficiently ???????? I’ve seen these guys close up, which is more than you have. I have relations there in the ATO on both sides of the line. DPR forces are made up of mostly of volunteers who know what an evil regime Porky Porochenko and Kolomoisky and the other turncoat oligarchs are…………………as does the rest of the free-thinking world. You do not belong too that group, as you are nothing less than a programmed monster, who spews garbage and nonsense. Shame on you.

  • occupybacon

    Sorry for the human shield terrorists are using to hide behind.

    • Toronto Tonto

      Typical ruskie .

      • occupybacon

        Yup, in ’94 when they were kicked out from Grozny every other week, they took hostages few living buildings with hundreds of families and threatened the Chechen militants they will execute the families.

        • Dontlietome

          You seem to think the Chechens were some sort of good guys………………… they are Jihadists, head choppers, kiddie rapers etc…………… they don’t have a good bone in their shitty carcasses, bit like you and Tonto. At least you’ve made it clear who you support, you shit eating morons.

          • occupybacon

            They were Muslims indeed but not Jihadist, until Russia invaded and killed lots of civilians. What I said with the surrounded Russian soldiers is true. Some Chechen were bad guys too but not as bad as Russians.

          • Dontlietome

            ………….and what source gave you this gem of information ?

          • occupybacon

            It was on TV, I didn’t have Internet back then

          • Dontlietome

            It was on ( state-controlled zionist-censored-mainstream-media ), T.V. . Well I rest my case.

          • occupybacon

            Indeed, the source quoted by the media were the Chechen guerrilla but I remember Russia claimed every other day that they “liberated” Grozny and I had chosen the other side as more credible source.
