MOSCOW, July 01. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow is urging the Ukrainian authorities to stop shelling their own cities and communities and to restore genuine, and not ostensible ceasefire to save people’s lives, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

“The Ukrainian leadership keeps claiming that the Ukrainian government forces that are conducting the so-called anti-terrorist operation in the Donetsk and Luhansk Regions, which in fact is a punitive operation, do not go as far as using force against civilians and that they never open fire on residential areas,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

“The real facts point to the opposite. As a result of regular shellings of cities and villages by the Ukrainian army, the National Guard and various territorial armed groups, including the Right Sector, there have been heavy civilian casualties.”

“This is the real truth. It cannot be concealed. Those responsible for crimes against civilians will be brought to justice,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

“We are demanding the Ukrainian authorities should stop shelling peaceful cities and communities of their own country and return to the real cease-fire and not an ostensible one, in order to save people’s lives,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
