On January 22nd, the Ukrainian Armed Forces shelled Russian officers from the Joint Center for Control and Coordination while they were recording the results of shelling in Dolgoe. This has been reported by the People’s Militia of the Lugansk People’s Republic. 

Only six hours had passed since Ukrainian militants shelled homes in the residential area of Dolgoe in the LPR’s Slavyanoserbsky district when the UAF war criminals once again violated the ceasefire with shelling.

At 17:00, Ukrainian punitive forces from the UAF’s 14th brigade opened fire with anti-tank guns and small arms in the direction of representatives of the JCCC and a group of journalists who were photo-documenting the consequences of the previous shelling on Central Street in Dolgoe. No casualties resulted.

“We hope that this case will not go unnoticed by the Special Monitoring Mission of the OSCE and that the deputy head of the international mission, Hug, will during his visit to the LPR from January 24th-25th honestly assess the UAF’s systematic shelling,” the LPR’s People’s Militia press center commented.
