Kiev forces deliberately bombard ICRC representatives in LPR
The Kiev army deliberately fired on the representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), who distributed humanitarian aid to the residents of the Prishib frontier village of the Slavyanoserbsky district of the Lugansk People's Republic. This was stated by LPR Deputy Minister of State Security Alexander Basov.
The village of Prishib, in which the ICRC staff were located, was attacked on 30 May. The fire from mortars was conducted from the direction of Trekhizbenka village, occupied by the Kiev forces.
"Yesterday, the Kiev troops carried out another provocation against the representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross and civilians of Prishib village of the Slavyanoserbsky district. During the distribution of humanitarian aid from the international organization, they were subjected to mortar shelling by the AFU. Ukrainian terrorists knew about the departure of the humanitarian convoy in which the delegate to the international organization in Ukraine, an Australian citizen, was involved. They saw cars with ICRC symbols and understood that 30 villagers living along the line are different were receiving humanitarian aid. But this didn't stop them," Basov noted.
"They (the Kiev forces) made a deliberate bombardment," he stressed.
He stressed that the LPR State Security Ministry repeatedly warned representatives of all international missions working on the territory of the Republic that the current regime in Ukraine, because of the inability to conduct open military operations, uses terrorist methods of war, including targeting representatives of international missions.
"Its aim is to intimidate the population, to support the myth of terrorism in the territories of the Republics of Donbass, using any excuses for fomenting hysteria through the media and special relations with Western curators," Basov said, adding that "representatives of international organizations have not heard these requests."
"Either in international missions, they are sure that they are able to ensure the safety of their employees in the context of a military conflict, or do not want to understand the whole specifics of the situation in Donbass, where the concept of "terrorism" is not applied to those who established a regime of terror towards the people, but to those who are trying to protect it from genocide," said the deputy head of the Ministry of State Security.
