Russian special operation in Ukraine
The use of banned mines “Petal” by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Donbass indicates the attitude of the regime of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky towards civilians of the people’s republics. This opinion was expressed by the Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov.
“Ukrainian terrorists fire projectiles equipped with anti-personnel high-explosive mines “Petal” at the cities of Donbass. More than 30 people have been blown up on them, including children and the elderly. Such actions speak eloquently about the attitude of the Zelensky regime towards the population of those lands that Kyiv would like to consider its own, ”Antonov said. The statement was published on the telegream channel of the Russian Embassy in the United States.
Since February 24, Russia has been conducting a special operation in Ukraine, the purpose of which is the liberation of the LPR. Earlier, a civilian resident of Donetsk was blown up by a prohibited mine PFM-1 “Petal”, which was installed by Ukrainian militants. Also because of this, a pensioner died. Mines were dropped near the railway station of the city, writes RT. “Petal”, like other anti-personnel mines, is prohibited from use in armed conflicts due to the risk to civilians, quotes “National News Service» military expert Viktor Litovkin.
