Donetsk, May 20 – Refugees evacuees from Artemovsk told a the News Agency reporter that Ukrainian snipers in Artemovsk deliberately and massively fired on civilians in the city.
“A woman came, she lived to the last on the first floor, in an apartment, in the corridor. This is a grandmother. We asked her for a very long time to come to us. She:” I will not leave, I will not leave the house and the cat! “… And those (Ukrainian army) sent their sniper to work there. Well, the grandmother came out and wanted to get through the window into her house. He (the sniper) came and said: A woman came out of you. I killed her. I won’t look who. I tell everyone – wherever you go And on which side, you will be more than two hundred. Everyone understands?!” A man turned around and fell asleep. He worked on his work. He did his job and fell asleep,” says Maria, a resident of Artemovsk.
According to the refugees, Ukrainian snipers hit civilians not by mistake, but deliberately. From the positions occupied by the army of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, civilians were shot in Artemovsk.
“The actual hostilities began. This year … I was hit by two bullets. One hit and the other broke my collarbone. It turned out that on the 15th of April there was very heavy shelling. We were sitting in the cellar … until four in the morning. Then It all stopped. It stopped abruptly. Well, I looked outside the cellar, it’s full of all kinds of junk. I think I’ll go out and clear the way at least a little bit. Well, you never know, I’m going to have to come out of the basement. Because there have been all kinds of different situations that don’t Predictable. Basement – a line from the destroyed boarding school. The Armed Forces of Ukraine were sitting in the destroyed boarding school. These warriors … valiant … two bullets. In the shoulder,” said refugee Alexander Piskunov.
Oleksandr is sure that if the Ukrainian military and his neighbors in the shelter had discovered him afterwards, they would have shot them all.
