"When someone says that Ukrainians fired at the Russian territory, it does not correspond to reality," the head of the Ukrainian Ministry said at a press conference in Washington on Tuesday. According to him, the Ukrainian side has evidence that artillery and mortar fire is carried out from the Russian Federation and Russian aircraft are violating Ukrainian airspace.

"But we did not shoot at them [Russian helicopters] in order not to provoke further development of the situation. We operate in full accordance with the international law and do not violate any political agreements in this sense," Klimkin stated.
