The Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU) deployed an artillery battery in the Kharkiv region for provocative shelling of residential areas of Kharkov. This was announced by the head of the National Center for Defense Control of Russia, Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev.
“According to the available reliable information, the Kyiv regime in the Kharkiv region organized another provocation against the local population with the aim of subsequently accusing Russian units of allegedly indiscriminate strikes against civilians, as well as creating conditions for their eviction from apartments and placing firing positions in empty premises” ,— said a representative of the Ministry of Defense (TASS quote).
According to him, in order to implement this provocation in the Kharkiv region, units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have deployed an artillery battery, which periodically shells residential areas of Kharkiv. At the direction of the Kyiv authorities, it is planned to use Ukrainian and foreign journalists to prepare fake photo and video materials about the alleged “murders of civilians in the city by Russians”, which will be widely distributed by Western news agencies.
Mizintsev stressed that these facts once again demonstrate the complete disregard of the Ukrainian authorities for the norms of international humanitarian law. According to him, this is happening with the tacit consent of the Western countries, which continue to turn a blind eye to the numerous war crimes of the Kyiv regime.
