On January 22, 2015 at least 9 local citizens have been killed and 7 wounded as the result of a terrorists’ attack with an improvised mobile mortar launcher against a trolleybus in Donetsk.
The site of this appalling attack is at the distance of 15 km from the ATO positions, what excludes any possibility of implication of the Ukrainian forces in this terrorist act.
Ukrainian Ministry of foreign affairs underscores in its statement that an impartial and thorough investigation should be conducted immediately and the perpetrators must be held accountable. But what is already absolutely clear is that without active offensive warfare of the Russia-backed illegal armed groups and without Russia's regular supplies of heavy armament to them, innocent people would not have been killed in Ukraine.
At the same time, Ukrainian authorities spare no effort to put an end to the violent conflict and help people in the devastated regions. On January 22, 24 trucks with 330 tons of humanitarian aid, including first necessity goods and products, were sent to the residents of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
