“Je Suis Donetsk”: Ukraine Army Attacks Bus and Trolley in Center of Donetsk. 13 Killed including Children

 

In-depth Report:

 

cluster-rocket-ukraine-400x222This morning January 22nd at 8:30 local time in Donetsk the Ukrainian army fired what appear to be 82mm shells at buses and trolleys near the center of the city.

The targets were located within roughly a 25 meter radius of each other. The OSCE is investigating.

The terrorist strike on the bus shown above claimed the lives of 13-15 people including children. There are reported to be over 20 other critically injured, many with blast amputations. The driver of a car next to the blast burnt to death. The blast was large enough to blowout 2nd story windows in an apartment across from it and stopped the clock at 8:30.

Donetsk Defense Minister Vladimir Kononov gave a statement that a group of terrorists launching attacks on civilians have been caught and are Ukrainian military operatives. Small teams of Ukrainian army/terrorists have been perpetrating random drive by shootings with automatics in Donetsk since the Ukrainian army reignited the hot war eleven days ago.
 

 
 

In another development on Slavakaya St. which is located on the outskirts of Donetsk, a local resident noticed an improvised trip mine pictured above. The DNR(Donetsk Peoples Republic) army responded by sending an explosives team to defuse it. The mine was set up on a pathway to a children’s playground.

In the town of Stahanovo today a Grad and Hurricane rocket and missile attack left three children’s kindergartens entirely destroyed this morning. Three more pre-school facilities were targeted and partially destroyed. So far casualty reports are 8 civilians dead including at least 2 children and over 20 wounded. The attacks on civilians are escalating.

Sources are reporting that the attack this morning is only the beginning of a much larger one. Ukraine’s Donbas Battalion is moving military equipment into Artemovsk flying DNR flags and wearing DNR uniforms. Artemovsk is in the control of the Ukrainian army.

The latest attacks on civilian targets in Donetsk show a blatant pattern of criminal murder that has come to define the Ukrainian Government in Kiev throughout the war. Like the other bus attack near Volonovaha where the Ukrainian army fired Grad rockets at one of their own checkpoints this attack shows the open criminality of the Poroshenko regime.

In developed countries governments that give their army units orders to murder other army units and their own civilians are criminals. Every official that could have influence and stop the crimes are held accountable. Most developed countries also adhere to laws of war that makes the purposeful targeting of civilians an international crime. Leaders of countries that order crimes of this magnitude are prosecuted either internally or in an international forum like the War Crimes Tribunal in Nuremburg. After WW2, a guilty verdict meant the responsible leaders were hung.

Why is this openly Nazi government instead rewarded?

Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, U.S. Army, is head of Allied Land Command (LANDCOM) for NATO was in Kiev yesterday and awarded US Army Europe medallions for excellence to the Ukrainian army’s wounded. General Hodges shook one Ukrainian soldiers hand and stated he was “proud of his service to his country.”

 

At Debalsevo and the Donetsk airport where these wounded soldiers are coming from the Ukrainian army has been targeting civilians for several months. The US Army head of LANDCOM takes pride in this? As an American I have never felt this much shame for my country. Just the sight of this man who is in the position of knowing exactly who he is dealing with shames the memory of my own grandfather and uncle who fought in WW2 against ultra-nationalism.

My grandfather and uncle would not thank openly nazi governments for receiving him on “such short notice.” They were proud to be American.

DONETSK, October 13 (RIA Novosti) – The eastern Ukrainian town of Kirovske has been shelled over the weekend by the Ukrainian forces, the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) headquarters has told RIA Novosti.

“Kirovske was shelled several times on Saturday and Sunday. The town’s post office was hit, with four people killed,” a DPR headquarters representative said.

Several residential buildings were also damaged, with one building burned down as a result of the attacks.

Kirovske is a town 30 kilometers (about 19 miles) to the east of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, with the population of some 30,000 people. Independence supporters of eastern regions maintain their presence in the town, repelling the attacks of the Kiev forces.

On Saturday, DPR Prime Minister Alexander Zakharchenko announced a “silence regime” in the region. He added that the withdrawal of the artillery and military hardware would begin after the “silence regime” held for five days.

An armed conflict in southeastern Ukraine began in mid-April when Kiev launched a military operation against independence supporters of the country’s southeast. Almost 3,700 people have been killed and over 8,800 have been wounded since the start of the confrontation, according to UN estimates.

On September 5, the opposing sides agreed to a ceasefire as a result of a Contact Group meeting in Minsk. The referendum that specifies the steps for the ceasefire implementation was adopted on September 19. The sides have subsequently accused each other of repeated violation of the truce regime.

Two Children Killed, Five Wounded Near Donetsk

KIEV, October 4 (RIA Novosti) – Two children have been killed and five wounded as a result of a shell burst in Zuhres, Donetsk Region, the state administration of the region said Saturday.

“The tragedy happened on Friday evening. Seven schoolchildren found an unburst shell. As they tried to move it, the weapon exploded; two children died on the spot,” the administration stated.

According to the source, five other children were wounded, being taken to hospitals in Khartsyzk and Makiivka.

In April, Ukrainian authorities launched a military operation in the country’s southeast, where independence supporters refused to accept the new government that was put in power following a coup in February.

The self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics in eastern Ukraine held referendums this May on self-determination. Over 90 percent of the voters cast their votes for greater autonomy. The republics declared themselves sovereign states as a result.

On September 5, a truce was brokered by Russia and the OSCE, which is for the most part maintained. However, the sides blame one another for violating it. Reports from DPR claim that the Ukrainian forces are firing shells at residential buildings from the area near the airport of Donetsk, thus forcing the independence supporters to open fire.

According to UN estimates, the conflict has so far killed over 3,600 people and injured over 8,500.
