DONETSK, January 16. /TASS/. Ukraine’s army used phosphorus bombs during the attacks on the Donetsk airport on Friday, the Donetsk News Agency said, citing the defence ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR).
“Today, several phosphorous munitions exploded in the territory of the Donetsk airport,” the defence ministry said, adding that one Donetsk self-defence soldier had phosphorous vapour intoxication and had to seek medical assistance.
According to the DPR defence ministry, Ukraine’s army shelled the positions of the DPR militias, some districts of the city of Donetsk, Gorlovka and a number of other settlements 15 times. “The DPR militias rebuffed an attack of the Ukrainian troops which had sought to break through into the territory of the airport from the settlement of Peski,” the press service of the DPR defence ministry said.
Earlier on Friday, DPR head Alexander Zakharchenko said that Kiev troops had used chemical munitions during the attacks on the Donetsk airport. “After the shells burst, a pungent cloud of gas spread across the old terminal. They are firing banned munitions in breach of the Geneva convention,” Zakharchenko said after visiting the Donetsk airport with a group of journalists. “There is a pungent smell after a shell burst and sulfur is felt, and it is impossible to breathe.”.
