MOSCOW, July 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow demands Kiev give up attacks on peaceful cities and towns and return to a real ceasefire, the Russian Foreign Ministry says.

“The solution of political problems in Ukraine by using force against people of the country can hardly correspond to the norms of civilised European society that Kiev pretends to,” the ministry said in a statement on Wednesday due to new casualties in Ukraine’s east.

“We demand the Ukrainian authorities, if they are capable of assessing the consequences of the criminal policy, stop shelling their own cities and towns and return to a real ceasefire in order to save people’s lives,” the ministry says.

On Tuesday, July 1, the ministry commented on the Ukrainian leadership’s statements on the so-called “humane” use of force in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. The ministry named these statements as hypocritical.

“Today we continue informing the Russian, Ukrainian and world public about the Kiev regime’s new crimes that they have to be responsible for,” the ministry says.

The ministry mentioned the latest events in the southeast of Ukraine, including artillery fire at Sloviansk, Kramatorsk and Luhansk, bombs filled with unknown chemical substances, attacks on schools and houses, wounds and deaths of dozens of civilians.

“The Ukrainian authorities do not worry about the fate of children. The orphanage has to be evacuated,” the ministry says.

Journalists of Russia’s REN TV Channel and buses with refugees were come under fire. “Residents have to pass the night at underground facilities and defence shelters,” the ministry says.
