Security service of Ukraine: terrorists shell peaceful village (Audio)

Security service of Ukraine: terrorists shell peaceful village (Audio)

The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has published a recorded phone call of terrorists discussing the accidental shelling of a peaceful village. The terrorists shift the blame to Ukrainian forces, saying they’ve done this before. SBU has previously released other intercepts of terrorists’ conversations, revealing some of their crimes. In July they published an intercept of terrorists talking about the shot down Malaysian Boeing (MH17). EuromaidanPress presents subtitles and transcript of the latest intercept:

Transcript:  DNR and LNR terrorists continue shelling settlements in the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. On August 15, 2014, the terrosists shelled Stepove with a Grad rocket launcher. They are, as is traditional, trying to shift the blame to the Anti-Terrorist Operation.

Terrorist call: “Volk” [Wolf] is deputy head of the “Ministry of State Security” for the DNR the terrorist organization. Corsa is an active member of DNR and pointer for Grad crews.

Corsa: How could they hit Stepove?

Volk: Where’s that?

Corsa: Near Berezove. I gave you the coordinates.

Volk: Well, I dunno how they could do that. Were there civilians at Stepove or what?

Corsa: There were civilians there. They hit three houses. There were little children in one of them. F…k! It gives me shivers.

Volk: You know what you have to do? I came home, poured a 150 [grams of vodka] and downed the f…ck out of it, just like that. Because it really drives me mad.

Corsa: A 150? I’ll definitely down one myself today.

Volk: Well, that’s the right thing to do. Because my nerves are really failing now.

5 hours later

Corsa: Well, they say that today they got the coordinates wrong by more than an angle minute. I gave them an error in mere seconds.

Volk: Well, what’s done is done. No one will know anyway. We’re spreading the info that the Ukrops [derogatory term for Ukrainians] fired on the civilians.

Volk: I tell you, no one’s immune to mistakes. WE’VE DONE THIS BEFORE. THIS IS WAR.
