The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine in its usual format hurried to refute what was shot from the Ukrainian side. From the statement of Kiev (quote RIA News):
Today, as of 15: 00 in the area of the ATO, the Ukrainian side did not make a single shot at all, despite 14 provocative attacks from small arms and grenade launchers in the direction of our positions.
In other words, the rhetoric of Kiev has come down to the accusation version of the “they fired themselves” series, which is familiar to him.
The situation was commented on by the Ombudsman for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law of the Russian Foreign Ministry Konstantin Dolgov. On Twitter, he made the following entry:
This is another provocation against the backdrop of the stubborn unwillingness of Kiev "democrats" to investigate the cynical murders of Russian journalists in the Donbas.
