Last night, air defence systems of the Republic shot down a rocket fired from the AFU at the city of Shakhtyorsk, which has not yet been identified. Many residential buildings were damaged, civilians were injured, but the worst thing is that an innocent child died…
A missile attack on a peaceful city, which is located in the rear, says a lot about the “standards” of the command of the AFU. I want to tell them that only cowards and terrorists revenge on defenceless population for defeat in battles. We, for our part, will without fail do everything possible so that the perpetrators will be punished.
I remind you that this fact violates the norms of part 1 of article 3 of the Geneva Convention of August 12, 1949 Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War. In the near future we will prepare all the necessary letters to international organizations.
For my part, I express my sincere condolences to the family and friends of the little angel. The Republic mourns with you.
