The beginning of the shelling of DPR territory during the night of the 9th of June coincided with the arrival of a US military diplomats and the deployment of American artillery targeting systems near Avdeevka. This was stated today by Deputy Commander of the Operational Command Denis Sinenkov at a briefing.
“It should be noted that the provocation coincided within a minute of the deployment of two US radar artillery aiming systems AN-TPQ-48 and AN-TPQ-36,” he said.
Sinenkov noted that at the same time, a group of military diplomats were spotted near Avdeevka, “headed by Colonel M. van Devilche and his assistant E. Selfom, accompanied by representatives of the Armed Forces”.
“Yesterday’s cynical scale of the shelling of settlements of the Republic, which resulted in casualties among civilians and the destruction of homes, was adjusted by unmanned UAF aerial vehicles,” said the commander.
