Russian Ministry of Defense:  Claim that Russian missiles ‘destroyed’ two U.S.-supplied Himar rocket launchers‘ 

July 6, 2022

 

We continue to record the facts of criminal actions by Kiev's regime against the civilians of Ukraine and Donbass republics, as well as the use of medical infrastructure facilities for military purposes:

in Ugledar, Donetsk People's Republic, Ukrainian nationalists have equipped firing positions and sniper points in municipal dental clinic (Molodezhnaya Street), and approaches to the facilities are mined, but the local population is deliberately not informed about this;

in Kropivnytsky, Kirovograd Region, territorial defence headquarters and arms and ammunition storage facilities are located on the territory of the central district hospital (Parshutina Street);

in Bakhmut, Donetsk People's Republic, hospital No. 2 (Oborona Street) hosts wounded fighters of Ukrainian nationalist formations, with all civilian patients, regardless of their state of health, cynically kicked out of the medical facility;

in Kostantinovka, Donetsk People's Republic, Ukrainian nationalists have equipped firing positions on the territory of Hospital No. 2 (Inzhenernaya Street), heavy weaponry has been placed in the surrounding area, and residents of nearby houses are being held inside the premises.

In addition, the Ukrainian Armed Forces have equipped the roof of the Odessa regional organization of the Ukrainian Red Cross Society (Kanatnaya Street) with portable anti-aircraft missile systems, including foreign-made ones, and placed armoured vehicles on the adjoining territory.

Despite repeated statements by the Russian Federation's Joint Coordination Headquarters for Humanitarian Response, to date, all such facts remain ignored by the World Health Organisation and the world community.

Once again, we call on the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the International Committee of the Red Cross and other international organizations to influence official Kiev and take effective measures to prevent Ukrainian armed formations from using civilian infrastructure for military purposes.
High-precision air-based missiles have destroyed 2 US-made Himars multiple-launch rocket launchers and 2 ammunition depots near Malotaranovka in Donetsk People's Republic. Russian Su-35 fighter has shot down 2 Mi-24 helicopters and 1 Su-25 aircraft of the Ukrainian air force in a single aerial battle near Nikolaevka and Snegirevka, Nikolaev Region. In addition, Russian air defence means have shot down 1 Mi-8 helicopter of the Ukrainian air force near Pervomaiskoye, Nikolaev Region.

Kiev regime continues criminal actions against civilians in Ukraine and the people's republics of Donbass, as well as the use of medical infrastructure for military purposes.

Ukrainian Armed Forces have equipped the roof of the Odessa regional organization of the Ukrainian Red Cross Society with portable anti-aircraft missile systems, including foreign-made ones, and placed armoured vehicles on the adjoining territory.
