VIENNA, January 15. /TASS/. The nature of damage to a bus in the Donetsk region, eastern Ukraine, near the city of Volnovakha proves the use of rockets, the OSCE Special Monitoring Commission to Ukraine said in a report of January 14, 2015.
Twelve people were killed and 17 wounded when a rocket exploded close to a bus near the city of Volnovakha on January 13, the report said.
“At approximately 14:35hrs on 13 January the regional traffic police confirmed to the SMM that a Grad rocket struck close to a civilian bus when it stopped at a Ukrainian Armed Forces checkpoint approximately 2km north of Volnovakha (35km south-west of Donetsk),” it said.
“The SMM arrived at the location of the incident at 17:45hrs and witnessed the removal of two of the dead passengers from the bus. The bus had shrapnel damage consistent with a nearby rocket impact, estimated by the SMM to be 12-15 meters from the side of the bus. The SMM visited the Volnovakha hospital where the staff confirmed that ten persons on the bus were killed instantly, while two died later in the hospital. Another 17 passengers were injured,” the report said.
“Following a proposal from the SMM, the Ukrainian Major-General and Head of the Ukrainian side to the JCCC and the Russian Federation Major-General, representative of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to the Joint Centre for Control and Co-ordination (JCCC) and the ‘Donetsk People’s Republic’ (DPR) leadership have agreed to conduct a joint investigation led by the JCCC,” it said.
“In parallel, the SMM will continue its observations and establish its own findings regarding the incident,” the report said.
