⚠️ According to the information from the Ukrainian POWs, nationalists prepare another sophisticated provocation aimed on accusing Russian units of launching indiscriminate strikes over important object of civilian infrastructure.
🔹In order to carry out this provocation the AFU units deployed an artillery battery in order to shell Zmejovskaya thermal power plant.
▫️In case of thermal power plant objects destruction people in Kharkov, Poltava and Sumy regions and hundreds of vital infrastructure objects will be left without electricity.
🔹In Avdeevka, Ukrainian nationalists mined containers with toxic substances at coke and chemicals plant (Industrialny prospect) and are going to blow them up in case of advance of Russian units and slow their assault with a poisonous cloud.
▫️The Ukrainian side plans to use this fact for accusation Russian Armed Forces in usage of chemical weapons.
▫️We warn the so-called civilized West as well as the United Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in advance that the above and other similar provocations about alleged “Russian atrocities” are soon to be widely spread by the Ukrainian authorities through the Western media and in various Internet resources.
❗️We stress once again that in carrying out the tasks of the special military operation, the Russian Armed Forces treat the civilian population with the utmost humanity and do not strike at civilian infrastructure.
⚠️ Ukrainian armed formations continue using critical industrial facilities for military purpose while cynically hiding behind the civilian population as a “human shield”:
🔹in Severodonetsk, Lugansk People`s Republic, AFU fighters keep by force hundreds of local residents in underground facilities of Azot chemical plant. Plant`s staff is also kept there.
▫️The nationalists also mined containers with chemically hazardous substances (nitric acid, ammonia, ammonium nitrate) and plan to blow them during retreat.
🔹in Kramatorsk, Donetsk People’s Republic, AFU units have deployed artillery and MLRS on the territory of Konditsioner plant (Shkolnaya street). Local workers are being kept by force in industrial premises of the plant.
🔹in Druzhkovka, Donetsk People’s Republic, Ukrainian nationalists have equipped firing positions and deployed heavy weapons on the territory of the gas equipment plant. Local residents are kept in basement rooms under the pretext of ensuring their safety.
▫️Such actions by Kiev once again demonstrate an inhuman attitude towards the fate of the Ukrainian citizens and show a complete disregard for all norms of morality and international humanitarian law.
