MOSCOW, January 12. /TASS/. A delegation of French human rights activists visited on Tuesday the Donetsk airport and its suburbs to see the consequences of shelling carried out by Kiev forces in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, the Donetsk news agency said.
"As a lawyer, I’m committed to protect people and I will inform the French public about the results of this trip," French lawyer Josy-Jean Bousquet told the news agency.
The delegation also includes Jacques Clostermann, the president of a union, My Country France, and lawyer Hanen Maksud. The human rights activists are accompanied by DPR Defense Ministry spokesman Eduard Basurin.
Besides the Donetsk airport, the delegation also visited the Oktyabrsky village and the St. Iversky nunnery destroyed by the Kiev forces’ shellings. The delegation will later go to Debaltsevo, the scene of fierce clashes between the government troops and self-defense militias a year ago.
