Spokesman of the Defense Ministry of the Donetsk People’s Republic Eduard Basurin said that it was a provocation by the Ukrainian side. “Today, we received video pictures from Kramatorsk with the following comments by Ukrainian TV channels: self-defenders from the Donetsk People’s Republic shelled Kramatorsk using Tornado, Smerch, Grad systems and so on. They even mentioned combat air forces. We have repeatedly said that we never use artillery against civilians and that we have no combat air forces. Our closest positions are 35 km away from Kramatorsk,” Basurin said.
