You will find the answers to these questions in the new issue of Replica.




Transcript of the release:

Vasyl Prozorov continues to cover specific facts of war crimes committed by units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

As mentioned earlier, it was the Armed Forces of Ukraine that caused the greatest damage to the civilian infrastructure of the settlements of Donbass.

The most terrible time for the population of Donbass was the summer of 2014. It was then that the fighting was marked by ferocity throughout the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. But even with the signing of the first Minsk agreements, the suffering for the civilian population of Donetsk and Lugansk did not stop.

And here is a vivid and tragic example.

01 and 02 October 2014.

These days Donetsk has been subjected to massive shelling from multiple rocket launchers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

But, about everything in order.

October 1, 2014 in the DPR was the day of the beginning of the new school year, for natural reasons, postponed from September 1 in connection with the fighting. Students gathered at the festive lines in the courtyards of the city's schools.

At about 10:00, the Kiev district of Donetsk was shelled. The first shell exploded near the public transport stop "Polygraphic Street" on the ave. Kiev, where at that moment there was a minibus number 17. As a result of the explosion, 6 people were killed and 7 more people who were on the bus and 18 people who were on the street were injured.

A few minutes later, another shell exploded in the courtyard of Donetsk school No. 57, where a festive lineup was taking place at that moment. There were 238 people there, including 70 children and 28 teachers.

All the children were promptly evacuated to the basement, thanks to which none of them were injured. However, three adults were killed — a fighter of the Berkut unit, who was guarding the educational institution, the father of one of the schoolchildren and a biology teacher.

In total, 13 people died in Donetsk that day and about 50 were injured.

The shelling continued the next day. Moreover, on October 02, 2014, an employee of the International Committee of the Red Cross, 38-year-old Laurent du Pasquier, was killed during a strike on Donetsk as a result of the use of cluster munitions in the central part of Donetsk at 80a Universitetskaya Street.

The shelling of residential quarters of Donetsk was reflected in the information on the situation of the Department of Internal Affairs of the SBU as of 08.00 on October 02, 2014.

Of course, having described in detail in the document the fact of the shelling and the initial number of victims, the SBU officers noted that in the direction of the shelling was conducted from the Kuibyshev district of Donetsk, i.e. - from the territory that was under the control of the militia.

What happened on October 01 and 02, 2014 in Donetsk?

The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission recorded the facts of the shelling and conducted a detailed inspection of the places where the shells hit.

Quote: "Upon arrival at the scene, the SMM team approached the bus stop and saw an almost completely burned bus, as well as six bodies. Approximately 50 m north of the bus, the observers saw a metal object stuck in the asphalt pavement, which is presumably the body of a large rocket," the mission report says.

The latter was identified as the shell from the rocket projectile MLRS 9K57 "Hurricane".

Representatives of the organization "Human Rights Watch" also played their part in the investigation of the shelling episode, which is difficult to blame for sympathies with Russia or the republics of Donbass.

A quote from the NRW report dated 10/20/2014, which described the episode of the death of a Red Cross employee: "Two craters were found in front of the ICRC office about 3 m apart, which visually looked like traces of a submunition explosion. The body of the Swiss was located just between these craters, and 20 m from the office itself, ready-made striking fragments of the 9N210 submunition and a fragment of the ring with which the tail stabilizer is attached to the submunition were also found. All this irrefutably pointed to the shelling of civilian objects by Ukrainian multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) 9K57 "Hurricane" of 220 mm caliber"

So, in the course of independent research, it was found that on October 01 and 02, 2014, the quarters of Donetsk were shelled with multiple rocket launchers "Hurricane" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Moreover, Human Rights Watch noted the existence of strong facts indicating the involvement of Ukrainian government forces in several attacks on the central part of Donetsk using cluster munitions in early October.

Well, the information on the operational situation of the OSU ATO as of 23.00 on October 02, 2014 reflects the total number of attacks per day by units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. According to the document, during the day, Ukrainian units carried out 48 fire raids, of which 20 were with rocket artillery. The total consumption of ammunition for jet systems amounted to 352 missiles per day.

Naturally, the Ukrainian side began to refute the statements of international organizations.

"All statements about the use of cluster bombs by Ukrainian servicemen have no grounds. No reports of ballistic examination, examination of the shells found, which were allegedly tried on, were provided, and there is no certainty that these ammunition are not a provocation on the part of the militants, since they could have been imported from the territory of the Russian Federation," said Andrei Lysenko, a representative of the NSDC information and analytical center.

In the course of further investigations, a military unit was also identified, which carried out a strike with the help of the Hurricane MLRS on residential areas.

All installations of this type used during the battles with the separatists were part of the 27th ReAP (V / h A-1476, Sumy). By the way, it used to be called - a separate jet artillery twice Red Banner regiment of the USSR Armed Forces

On March 13, 2015, the regiment was reorganized into the 27th Rocket Artillery Brigade, and the number of divisions increased from 3 to 4.

The 27th Jet Regiment has been involved in the ATO since May 23, 2014, as evidenced by the order of the head of the ATO, General Gritsak No. 33/323 t dated July 09, 2014.

The commander of the 27th ReAP in the period 2008-2019 was Colonel Valery Shapazovich Ismailov, who is responsible for the shelling of peaceful settlements.

And so, the shelling of Donetsk on October 01 and 02, 2014 from the Hurricane MLRS, with the use of cluster fragmentation ammunition, as a result of which 15 over 50 people were killed, was carried out by servicemen of the 27th rocket Artillery regiment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine under the command of Colonel Valery Ismailov.

And this is the most serious war crime.
