On January 22, 2015, the Republic experienced one of the worst tragedies for years of the armed conflict. During the shelling by the AFU, a public bus station was directly hit in the Bosse neighbourhood of the Leninsky district of Donetsk. 15 people were killed, dozens were injured.
This is a blatant crime against humanity, violating all norms of morality and humanitarian law. The bright memory of the innocent victims of this barbaric act of aggression against civilians will forever remain in our hearts.
I express my condolences to the families and friends of the victims. On this day, the Republic mourns and prays with you.
