Indiscriminate Shelling of Civilians - how very reserved indeed!
Dear All, "OSCE confirmed the indiscriminate use of heavy weapons in Slaviansk, stated the OSCE spokesman for the monitoring mission in Ukraine Michael Botsurkiv. “In Slaviansk we saw a large amount of physical evidence of artillery and mortar fire, and in some cases, on residential homes, so therefore we had proof of indiscriminate shelling”, related Botsurkiv at a press conference on Wednesday. Earlier, Russia’s permanent representative at the organization Andrei Kelin said that Kiev authorities, in an attempt to hide the truth on what is occurring in Eastern Ukraine, interfered in the work of the special OSCE monitoring mission." http://igcp.eu/hronika-prestupleniy/osce-confirms-indiscriminate-use-artillery-slaviansk?language=en Moreover, they proceed doing so, this time in Donetsk suburb Maryinka: https://m.vk.com/video30441550_169272726 And I am somehow not surprised at this, for... Just see the photos of Nikolayevka "freed" by Ukrainian forces attached hereto. Let me quote the ad-hoc Law on Fighting Terrorism passed by Verkhovnaya Rada in Kiev on the 5th of June 2014: Para 19 of Art. 1 runs: "Anti-terrorist operation is a complex of coordinated special measures aimed at prevention, non-admittance and termination of terrorist activities, freeing hostages, ENSURING SECURITY OF CIVILIANS, disarmament of terrorists, MINIMISATION OF AFTERMATH OF TERRORIST DEEDS". Do you believe the so-called "anti-terrorist operation" is meeting any of the targets set? Thank you, Sincerely, Irina
