Russian Ministry of Defense: Russia accuses Ukraine forces of using residential buildings for military positions
June 30, 2022
We continue to record criminal acts by Kiev regime against civilian population of Ukraine and republics of Donbass:
in Kramatorsk, Donetsk People's Republic, in the school №35, in the private residential buildings, AFU personnel, mercenaries and Azov militants have deployed strongpoints, sniper positions, armoured and mortar positions, while local residents remain detained in the basements;
in Kharkov, in the technological lyceum №9, militants of Ukrainian armed groups have deployed barracks, armoured equipment, artillery and MRLS;
in Slavyansk, Donetsk People's Republic, in the art lyceum, AFU units have deployed their armoured equipment, long-range artillery and MRLS, the approaches to the lyceum have been mined, but local population has been intentionally left uninformed;
in Nikolayev, in the school №51, Territorial Defence units have deployed their munitions depots and armoured equipment.
In addition, in Zelenodolsk, Dnepropetrovsk region, professionals of the Centre for Information and Psychological Operations of the AFU carried out another provocation in order to accuse Russian Armed Forces of alleged destruction of civilian infrastructure facilities by indiscriminate attacks.
Nationalists had previously withdrawn all the cereals from a grain storage of an agricultural enterprise and exploded them, while the local administration, as it had already been practiced by Kiev authorities, has spread fabricated photo- and videographic datathrough Ukrainian and western mass media. This kind of fakes are regularly replicated by the Ukrainian propaganda supported by the collective West.
We emphasize again that the Russian Federation Armed Forces do not launch attacks at civilian infrastructure facilities and treat civilians with an exclusive humanity during the special military operation.
Ministry of Defence has informed about the interchange of war prisoners: 144 for 144 servicemen. It had been organised and held according to the direct order of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, as the lives, the health and the liberation of our servicemen, the fighters of the Donetsk and Lugansk people's republics who constitute the majority of the returned individuals, are the most important task.
In Zelenodolsk, Dnepropetrovsk region, professionals of the Centre for Information and Psychological Operations of the AFUcarried out another provocation in order to accuse Russian Armed Forces of alleged destruction of civilian infrastructure facilities by indiscriminate attacks.
