Nebenzia accused Ukraine of breaking humanitarian laws in the Donetsk strikes


Ukraine has once again blatantly violated the norms of international humanitarian law by striking Donetsk, stated Russia's permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya, at a meeting of the UN Security Council (UNSC), TASS reports.

"We are talking about the massive shelling by the Armed Forces of Ukraine of densely populated areas of Donetsk on 7 November." Nebenzya said, "The Kiev regime attacked civilian objects in the city centre three times during the day, firing rockets from HIMARS and Uragan MLRSs. Apart from hitting residential buildings, the Department of Labour and Social Protection building, and a route taxi were also struck," Nebenzya pointed out. He also showed the UN Security Council members photographs of the shelling sites received by the Russian mission from Donbas residents and drew the Security Council's attention to the timing of the attacks.

Permanent Representative of Russia to the United Nations specified that on October 31st, Kiev initiated three attacks on the Budennovskiy district of Donetsk. "Following the initial HIMARS MLRS strike, there were no injuries, but a fire erupted. Despite awareness of firefighters and journalists present an hour later, the AFU intentionally targeted the same location with cluster-type, indiscriminate rockets, which resulted in two fatalities and 15 injuries. Eight ambulance crews were dispatched for rescue efforts, and yet Kyiv proceeded with a deliberate third strike, fortunately avoiding further casualties. This undeniably reflects a purposeful tactical approach," he asserted.
