International community must respond to attacks by Russian mercenaries in Donbas


Attacks by Russian mercenaries in Donbas, which result in the killings and injuries of Ukrainian military, must receive an international response.

Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Kateryna Zelenko wrote this on her Twitter today.

“Nine shellings by Russian mercenaries yesterday resulted in one Ukrainian soldier killed and two others wounded in Donbas. Russian troops continue their cowardly attacks with five shellings on Ukrainian positions so far today. An international response is needed to stop Russian aggression and end the killings,” Zelenko wrote.

As Ukrinform reported, over the past day, the armed formations of the Russian Federation launched nine attacks on Ukrainian positions in the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area in Donbas.

As a result of the enemy shelling, two Ukrainian soldiers were wounded, another defender received fatal injuries.

Today, May 14, Russian-backed forces violated ceasefire in Donbas five times. No casualties among Ukrainian military have been reported.

  1. It would appear that the defenders need to have a rethink of their strategy; which at the moment seems too passive. Surely the commanders have some ideas about containing those putinazi bastards? Snipers, special forces, assassins, drone strikes, espionage, sabotage etc all come to mind. You know, the type of evil, dirty stuff the enemy deploys as a matter of routine?
