MoD Russia (June 1, 2022)

⚠️ Ukrainian armed forces and fighters of Ukrainian nationalist formations continue to use social infrastructure facilities for military purposes:

🔹in Odessa, territorial defence units equipped weapons and ammunition depot in the lyceum building (Yelisavetinskaya Street) and trenches and a stronghold near the dormitory and school No. 56 (Tenistaya Street), without evacuating residents from nearby houses;

🔹in Nikolaev, fighters of Ukrainian armed formations equipped barracks in schools No. 1 (Aivazovskogo Street) and No. 7 (Potemkinskaya Street), and in kindergarten No. 70 (Faleevskaya Street) and school No. 24 (Lesnaya Street) – warehouses with rockets for MLRS;

🔹in Kramatorsk, Donetsk People’s Republic, militants of the Ukrainian armed forces equipped strongholds on the territory of the Machine-Building College (Bolshaya Sadovaya Street) and general education schools No. 10 (Khabarovskaya Street) and No. 16 (Leonid Bykov Street), with armoured vehicles and large-calibre artillery placed in the adjoining territory;

🔹in Slavyansk, Donetsk People’s Republic, nationalists have equipped firing positions in the building of the vocational engineering lyceum (Koltsevaya Street) and placed artillery and MLRS in the courtyard.

▫️The militants, knowing that civilians would be victims of such criminal actions, deliberately target Russian Armed Forces positions from residential areas, provoking them to return fire in order to subsequently place responsibility for possible civilian casualties on Russian servicemen.

🔹Kiev regime is planning to carry out another inhuman provocation in Shostka city, Sumy Region.

▫️Long-range missile systems are expected to be delivered to Shostka from the USA in the near future, with which militants of the Ukrainian armed formations are planning to strike at the Russian Federation border territory directly from residential areas of the town on the orders of the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU).

▫️The Ukrainian neo-Nazis hope to provoke the Russian Armed Forces into returning fire and then accuse them of indiscriminate strikes on civilian infrastructure and the killing of Ukrainian civilians.

❗️This provocation will involve Ukrainian and foreign journalists at the instructions of the Kiev authorities to prepare fake photos and videos of the alleged “killing of civilians by Russians”, which will be widely spread by Western news agencies.

⚠️ On May 31, 2022, around 7:00 pm (Moscow time), retreating units of the 79th Airborne Assault Brigade of the AFU detonated a tanker containing a toxic chemical substance (nitric acid) at Severodonetsk Azot enterprise in order to stop advancing units of the Russian Armed Forces and formations of the Donetsk People’s Republic by creating a chemical contamination zone.

▫️After the explosion, an orange-coloured toxic cloud rose (to an altitude of about one kilometre) and moved towards Kremennaya and Rubezhnoe.

▫️The Ukrainian neo-Nazis were not deterred by the fact that innocent civilians had suffered as a result of this terrorist act involving a toxic chemical substance.

▫️The Kiev authorities have once again shown their criminal and cynical nature. Terror and genocide against its own people have become the norm in Ukraine.

❗️We emphasize once again that in carrying out the tasks of the special military operation, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation treat the local population extremely humanely and do not strike at civilian infrastructure facilities, unlike the Ukrainian armed formations.
