The Donetsk People`s Republic completely denies its involvement in the killing of 10 and wounding of13 passengers of the bus hit by the shelling on the 13th of January near Volnovakha.

First published photos of the shelled bus cast doubt on the official version of the Ukrainian side about shelling carried out by the DPR military forces.

The tragedy took place near Volnovakha. These areas are out of reach of weapons and MLRS of the DPR army.

We strongly believe that the most probable explanation of happened tragedy is the shelling of the bus by the military forces of Ukraine and the representatives of the nationalistic paramilitary formations.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Donetsk People`s Republic demands independent investigation of this tragedy.
