Shelling of Ambulences, Firetrucks, and Rescue Workers in the Donbass RepublicsSimilar to Israelis and U.S. Backed Terrorists in Syria
Local residents describe the perpetrators of these crimeswho have received lavish U.S. fundingas shameless, scumbags and terrorists.
Heroic rescue workers in Donbas should be accorded rights under international law to help people without being targeted
In the more than eight years of bombing the civilians of the Donetsk and Luhansk Peoples Republics, Ukraine has committed untold numbers of war crimes. These include bombing residential areas, markets, hospitals, schools, parksincluding with prohibited heavy weapons and banned cluster munitionsand, since late July, raining banned Petal mines down on populated civilian areas, including the very center of Donetsk, including as recently as September 7.
A lesser-known war crime is Ukraines routine targeting of ambulances, fire trucks, medics and rescuers, and their headquarters and stations. Many of the times Ukraine bombs such heroic rescuers, it is when they are on the way, or already on site, to help civilians often themselves just bombed by Ukraine.
On August 21, Ukrainian shelling of the DPRs Gorlovka wounded twelve, including five firefighters.
The day prior, Ukrainian shelling targeted an ambulance station in the LPRs Lysychansk, wounding several and damaging some of the ambulances.
