“There are many victims, as a result of the shelling of an indoor market in the center of Donetsk.”
There is also information that one bus was destroyed. In addition, a missile “arrival” was recorded in the area of the city administration on Artema Street.
Later, the mayor of the Russian-occupied Donetsk stated that the number of dead during the shelling of an indoor market in Donetsk increased to 6, and 6 more people were injured.
As we can see, the Russians are using already familiar tactics of terror and intimidation before pseudo-referendums. It should be noted that this is not the first case when Russia blames Ukraine for its atrocities.
