DONETSK, October 4. /TASS/. Ukrainian security forces are using prohibited weapons against civilians in the south-east of the country, a member of the Russian president’s Human Rights Council, Maxim Shevchenko, said on Saturday.]
He and Darya Morozova, a candidate human rights commissioner of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, visited one of the mass burial sites and the place where an exploded cluster projectile went off several days after landing, hurting teen-agers, on the outskirts of Donetsk.
“Today I received confirmation that the Ukrainian army is using against civilians in the Donetsk republic weapons that one would hesitate to use even against an enemy army. The impression is that they are using everything they have at the despots,” Shevchenko said.
