MOSCOW, March 17 /TASS/. Moscow is urging the Ukrainian authorities to carry out a thorough investigation into the March 16 tragedy in Konstantinovka and punish the guilty instead of "searching for enemies in a fit of public rage," the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday commenting on the recent tragedy in Ukraine in which an eight-year-old girl died and a woman with a baby was taken to hospital.
The incident occurred in the Kiev-government controlled village of Konstantinovka. Ukrainian servicemen riding an airborne combat vehicle run over an eight-year-old girl who died and a woman with a baby who was accompanying her was injured and taken to hospital.
This incident caused fair public indignation. But police and the army cracked down on spontaneous protests and tried to shift the blame to some instigators and separatists, the Russian Foreign Ministry said. Moreover, Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to Ukraine’s interior minister, said that local police had been allowed to shoot to kill in case of mass clashes.
"We are urging the Ukrainian authorities to carry out detailed investigation into the tragedy and punish the guilty instead of searching for enemies in manifestations of public anger," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
