Giving criminal orders to shell residential areas of our Republic the fascist military-political leadership of Ukraine attempted to disrupt celebration of the bright holiday of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War by us.
Moreover, according to our intelligence, to conduct artillery fire, the military personnel was selected from the pro-Nazi servicemen and units of the 36th, 40th separate brigades and the regiment ‘Azov’.
Thus, in the 40th separate brigade guided by the Nazi – Colonel Panchenko, who had gave order to shell the locality of BEZYMMENNOYE, the selection of the military personnel and direct leadership were imposed on the Vice-Commander of the 1st battery concerning work with the military personnel, Senior lieutenant Bilogub and the commander of the detachment of 152mm weapons ‘Giatsint-B’, firing at local residents, was Sergeant Oboista.
It is just few of the military criminals who are guilty of victims among civilians, destruction of the residential area in the locality of Bezymennoye in the south of the Republic.
It is those Judases selling the lives of ordinary people to receive extra 1,000 UAH.
We can see that for the participants of the “ATO” – this conflict is not the war of Nazi-patriots, as Kiev says, for “the integrity of Ukraine” but is an ordinary shooting ground with a prize – money.
