From PolitRussia, translated by Soviet Bear
opened fire upon their own positions in the village of Shirokino near Mariupol,
and then blamed the attack on the NAF. This was said by the Deputy chief of
staff of the militia of the self-proclaimed Donetsk Peoples Republic Eduard Basurin
“In Shirokino they went out of the
village, fired upon their positions, then accused us of doing it” — quoted
by RIA “Novosti” from a statement by the representative of DPR.
President Francois Hollande has described the
actions of the UAF as a provocation against the Republic, recalling that the
militia fled Shirokino as early as last June.
According to him, the armed forces of Ukraine
have so far not abandoned the tactic of “destabilizing the situation”
and continue to strengthen attempts at provocation of the DPR army, in
anticipation of the next round of trilateral negotiations of the contact group,
which will be be held in Minsk on August 26.
We will remind you that since April 2014 Kiev continues
the “special operation” against the people of the Donbass region who
are dissatisfied with a coup in the country. According to the latest data, about
6.5 thousand people have become victims of the conflict.
