The State Duma denies that Russia is shelling Ukraine, says U.S. “lying”



According to RIA “Novosti” the deputy chair of the State Duma Defense Committee Franz Klintsevich considers US Department’s of State statements that Russia is shooting at Ukraine, “impossible to prove.” Klintsevich said that the US  is “lying about obvious things.”

According to the Duma member, satellite images are insufficient to accuse Russia of shooting at Ukrainian territory, and it is necessary to support such a claim with data from other sources.

“Today the Americans’ words are simply not supported by the evidence,” noted Klintsevich, adding that he “has no information that our people fired from our territory.”

Earlier, the US published satellite imagery, accusing Russia of firing at Ukraine.
