"These monsters shelled the transport moving under a white flag. As a result, 17 people were killed and only six survived. People with burns and injuries of varying severity were taken to the hospital in Lutuhyne town. The doctors do their best to save lives of the people who themselves still do not believe that they remained alive," the statement says.
"The militants sweep the area, where the convoy was destroyed, with fire. They do not allow to get to the scene of the crime not only the experts but also journalists. It is not possible even to pick up all the bodies at the moment." The ATO press center notes that the Russian media have spread blatant lie almost immediately after the commission of the crime.
"No one is surprised that Russian journalists are the first who appear on the scene after the murders or any other crimes. The terrorists' henchmen immediately pin the blame for all their dirty deeds on the Ukrainian armed forces. But the truth cannot be hiden and the retribution for crimes against humanity will certainly come," the ATO headquarters emphasizes.
