MOSCOW, April 13. /TASS/. The self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said on Monday that Ukrainian government forces’ allegations of the use of phosphorus munitions by local militias in eastern Ukraine were false.
"We do not use prohibited weapons, including phosphorus munitions," the Donetsk news agency quoted a Donetsk People's Republic defense ministry spokesman as saying.
"We do not even have the corresponding equipment to use them," the spokesman said. "The Ukrainian forces’ statement is nothing but a provocation."
Ukraine’s military said on Sunday evening that the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic forces allegedly used prohibited weapons, including phosphorus munitions, around the town of Peski in eastern Ukraine.
