On the morning of March 14, around 11:20 a.m. local time, Ukrainian units struck the center of Donetsk with a Tochka-U tactical missile equipped with cluster munitions. The strike targeted the center of the city, where there is no military infrastructure or equipment. Civilians were deliberately chosen as targets. The nationalist units of the Kiev regime, using cluster munitions, sought to hit as many of the city’s inhabitants in the central part of the city as possible.

The missile was intercepted in mid-air and did not reach its direct target, but even the aerial detonation of the missile, which was equipped with shrapnel cluster munitions, had terrible consequences.

As of now authorities say that at least 20 people were killed, including children, and 26 others were injured in the attack. The numbers of casualties could rise as authorities investigate the scene of the crime.

Forces of the Kyiv government have once again demonstrated why there is no another option to put an end to the violence in the region besides the full demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine.

DPR Head Denis Pushilin said that the missile was equipped with a cluster ammunition warhead. He added that if the missile was not shot down, it would lead to even more casualties.

The leader of the republic, Pushilin, said that the DPR would declare mourning after the missile attack on the city.

DPR authorities consider the strike as a terrorist attack.

“Ukrainian armed formations once again used the Tochka-U tactical missile system on residential areas of Donetsk in order to genocide civilians and destroy important civilian infrastructure,” the statement said.

According to Pushilin, DPR forces have already shot down over 15 Tochka-U missiles launched by Kyiv’s forces. He stated that the missile launching point will be found and eliminated.

DPR authorities also vowed to increase the speed of offensive against Kyiv’s forces.

Almost immidiately after the Tochka-U attack, the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out strikes on positions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces near Yasinovataya, located in the countryside of Donetsk:

As long as units of the Kyiv government remain close to residential areas, their actions (both offensive and defensive) will continue to cause civilian casualties. MSM-promoted ‘democratic Ukrainian fighters’ use civilians as human shields and intentionally launch strikes on civilian targets as part of their ordinary military approach.

This crime took place amid the new round of talks between Kyiv and Moscow and followed diplomatic signals by both sides that some kind of ‘compromise’ could be found in the talks. After the March 14 attack, it is hard to expect that the diplomatic process will achieve any fruitful results.
