On Thursday, January 22, terrorists have shelled a trolleybus in Donetsk, killing civilians. Shelling hit a passenger transport in the area, where there were no military clashes, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry press service reports.
“The shelled trolleybus has been at a distance of more than 15 kilometers from the location of the ATO forces, which excludes their involvement in that terrible act. Furthermore, we note that the Ukrainian servicemen never use weapons against the civilian population,” reads the statement.
According to the Ministry, all these facts indicate that the terrorists have shelled passenger transport from the residential districts of the city, which are controlled by illegal armed groups. Until today, no damages in this area have been noticed.
