Today at 17:20 (Moscow time), Ukrainian servicemen deliberately set fire to dry fields near the village of Spartak. After 30 minutes the fire approached the first line of houses. This was reported by a source in the operational command of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
“The arriving firefighters from the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Donetsk Peoples Republic can not begin to extinguish the fire, since the Ukrainian soldiers opened fire with grenade launchers and small arms towards the settlement, preventing the rescue of civilian dwellings from the flames.
“These actions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces can be regarded as continuing the genocide of the peaceful population of Donbass,” the command of the Republic stated.
Earlier, the intelligence service of the Donetsk People’s Republic reported the arrival of a division of Ukrainian militants to the south-west of Donetsk and foreign snipers to the southern sector of the front.
