Head of Ministry of International Affairs Sergey Lavrov declared that if Ukraine would continue to shell their territory they’d suppress these fire positions.
He also declares that Moscow is considering the situation with ‘the shelling of its territory by Ukrainians’ as a result of incompetence or just an accident.
‘We have already warned that if this continues we’ll take the necessary measures. At least, if it is clear that it’s done by purpose, we’ll destroy the fire positions, I’m sure’, – he said in an interview to the TV channel ‘Russia 24’.
He underlined that ‘according to our estimations it’s the result of incompetent work of soldiers and just a casualty, that also take place at war’. ‘But we have seriously warned our Ukrainian colleagues’, – The Head of MIA added.
Editor: The Russian Minister might have forgotten to mention that the shelling he spoke about had been carried out by pro-Russian terrorists and mercenaries.
As UNIAN informed yesterday terrorists shelled the territory of Russian Federation (the settlement of Kuybysheve in particular) from the settlements of Marynivks, Dmytrivka and Stepanivka. Russian troops opened fire in response. 2 artillery shells exploded close to the checkpoint of ‘Marynivka’.
