Today, on 30 January, 2015 Donetsk civilians were subjected another spot shelling from the part of Ukrainian security forces. A special attention should be drawn to the fact the shelling has started exactly at time of humanitarian aid distribution located in Kuibyshevskyi district, Bakinskih Komissarov avenue.

It`s quite difficult to find any intelligible reasons for such actions from the Ukrainian side, except the desire of Kiev regime to inflict maximum damage on the civilian population of our state and to achieve total panic and chaos among them.

Once again we call on the international community to exert presure on the Ukrainian authorities, who apparently have chosen the strategy of genocide against the people of Donbass.

We would like to remind Kiev about deplorable end of all regimes followed similar policy in relation to entire peoples.

We reserve our right to demand from the Government of Ukraine compensation of all damage caused by them and calling to account specific culprits of this tragedy at the international level.
