Militants from “Azov” shelled the settlement of Sakhanka in the DPR, causing a house to burn down, at the same time that UN representatives were working in the area.

This was stated at a briefing on July 30th by the official representative of the DPR Ministry of Defence Daniil Bezsonov.

“It is impossible to disregard the fact that the shelling of the settlement of Sakhanka conducted by ‘Azov’ nationalists using 120-mm mortars, which caused a house to burn down, took place on July 27th against the background of UN officials working in this region for the purpose of studying the situation and preparing a report about the introduction of a peacekeeping mission in the conflict zone,” reported Daniil Bezsonov.

Thus, according to the representative of the Defense Ministry, “Azov” militants not only demonstrated the lack of control coming from the command of the occupational forces and Nayev personally, but also discredited the Ukrainian side in this conflict in general.

“According to information obtained from the reliable sources accompanying UN officials, the fact of shelling that led to the destruction of civilian infrastructure on our territory will be documented in the final report of the UN Mission, which will be reported to the General Assembly,” said Daniil Bezsonov in conclusion.
