“Judging by all appearances, Kiev is clearly afraid of the mission of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, being deployed at Gukovo and called upon to monitor the situation on the Russian-Ukrainian state border,” the ministry said in a statement.
The statement also said that Moscow demands Kiev stop shelling Russia’s territory and ensure security of international observers.
The ministry said 17 civilians, including three children, died as a result of artillery shelling by Ukrainian servicemen in the city of Gorlovka in the embattled eastern Ukrainian Donetsk Region. A school and a hospital were destroyed.
Moscow also called on its Western partners to influence the Kiev authorities who are going too far.
“Responsibility for civilian deaths in eastern Ukraine also rests with those who support the above-mentioned criminal actions,” the ministry said.
