Ukrainian “army” was very desperate at drawing the Russian troops away from Severodonetsk and wanting them to instead start a frontal assault on the well-fortified Avdeevka, where the Ukrainian troops have dug in using the civilians as the human shield. These were the reasons for the indiscriminate terrorist shelling of the residential areas of Donetsk city of the past days. A few days ago Ukraine set an 8-year record in shelling of the civilians: 13.06.2022 – The most brutal shelling of Donetsk city over the past 8 years. Now with French munitions, but yesterday, they beat it and shelled with an even greater ferociousness.
400 shells were fired at the city. 5 people were killed. over 20 wounded.
The Russian Air Force finally obliged the Ukrainian wish and returned fire, but using high-precision rockets, striking 12 firing position. As the result, 4 platoons of the “Grad” Multiple Rocket Launcher Systems and 4 platoons of the American-supplied M777 155mm howitzers were destroyed.
One attack by the Ukrainian terrorists on University street in Donetsk was captured on a security camera, and by the looks of it, it was a cluster bomb with exploding sub-munitions – this is a war crime, as such munitions are forbidden against targets where civilians might be found.
Graham Phillips drove through Donetsk as the shelling commenced. A video where one can see the destruction, a bloodied car. Towards the end of the video Graham evacuates two scared women:
