DONETSK, July 04, /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian military positioned at checkpoints near the town of Nikolayevka in Donetsk region open fire at private cars, in which peaceful civilians are trying to leave the town and these actions strictly contravene arrangement and promises by the military to let everyone willing to leave out of the city without impediments, residents of Nikolayevka who called the press service of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said.
Eyewitnesses told Pyotr Mizerny, the spokesman for the press center, that the ‘peaceful exit from the city’, which the authorities in Kiev promised to the residents of Nikolayevka, remained peaceful only on paper while practically every car getting out of town was turning into a target of gunfire.
Residents complained that no one was explaining the causes of this although a prior agreement existed on letting out of the town anyone who would like to leave voluntarily.
At the time of reporting, the press center could not say exactly if the actions of the Ukrainian military had resulted in the civilians’ deaths. But there was a big likelihood that such data might surface Saturday.
The press center also said there was no data for either confirming or refuting the reports that the military had seized Nikolayevka.
