Today, on January 13, 2014 approx. at 14:20 Kyiv time terrorists shelled Ukrainian checkpoint located 7 km of Volnovakha, Donetsk Oblast. BAZ A079 ‘Etalon’ transporting civilians was completely destroyed by BM-21 ‘Grad’ belonging to the militants of so-called Dontesk People Republic.
12 people were killed: 2 males, 1 child and 9 women. Other sources report higher number of civilian casualties. All people died from the shell wounds. 3 Ukrainian servicemen from the checkpoint were wounded.
We identified precise location of BM-21 Grad launcher which committed this humanitarian crime. It is Alexandrynivka, a village near Dokuchaevs’k.
Terrorists are again hiding their military equipment in private houses and in the backyards of the Ukrainian civil population. 10 civil Ukrainians died since so-called ‘truce’ was announced back in December.
