Militants create civilian disaster scenes for Russian media

Militants create civilian disaster scenes for Russian media

kramatorsk

Russian terrorists  fired at Ukrainian military positions at the Kramatorsk airfield Thursday, June 19, reported ATO (antiterrorist operation) spokesman Vladyslav Seleznov on his Facebook page, reports Ukrainska Pravda. “Then the militants launched 82mm mortar fire at civilian areas in Kramatorsk,” he wrote.

Citing sources, Seleznov reported that once again Russian journalists appeared within minutes at locations bombarded by militants. A few days earlier, the ATO center had warned that militants would be shelling Kramatorsk in order to create a humanitarian catastrophe and provide appropriate images for Russian TV. According to Seleznov, this has been going on for several days.

“ATO forces are concentrating on militant positions that are outside the residential areas. They do not fire on areas inhabited by civilians. We are primarily interested in the safety of residents,” he said.

“At the same time, we are ensuring the safety of the energy company workers who are trying to restore damaged power lines and the water supply system in the Semenivka area,” he said.

“It should be noted that these messages (Russian propaganda — Ed.) are being distributed through social networks to escalate the situation and give the appearance of mass indignation by citizens,” Seleznov concluded.
