This was stated by the spokesman of the ATO Staff Anton Myronovych while commenting on the night shelling of Olenivka.
He stressed that the allegations against the Ukrainian military is an information provocation conducted by the Russian-terrorist forces and aimed at discrediting Ukraine and its armed forces.
“Basurin’s announcement is another planned information attack. Since the beginning of the day, Ukrainian units in the specified area, even though subjected to shelling by militants, have not opened fire in response”, – he said.
ATO spokesman concluded that this situation indicated that “the enemy is ready to fire at civilians, including ones in the areas controlled by militants, just to discredit the Ukrainian armed forces”.
It was previously reported that the “DPR” spread fake information about the alleged “attack on Olenivka conducted by the ATO forces”.
