MOSCOW, May 1. /TASS/. Tochka-U missile strikes by Ukrainian troops are aimed at terrorizing civilians, not letting them choose their own path themselves, Russia’s top diplomat Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with the Italian TV company Mediaset.
"I have not heard [Ukrainian] President Vladimir Zelensky saying a word about the situation that in no way relates either to the military plant (no matter what its name is), or anything else connected with military infrastructure. I mean open strikes by Tochka-U missiles that were directed over the past weeks on the center of Donetsk, on the railway civil station in the city of Kramatorsk and on a whole number of other settlements, including Kherson (on April 27)," he said. "Those attacks are obviously aimed at terrorizing civilians, preventing a situation when those living in these regions will choose their own path themselves," the minister added.
The majority of people there are tired of the oppression of the Kiev regime they experienced all those years, Lavrov noted.
"We warned. All our warnings faced a wall of silence," he said, adding that "another warnings last November and December on the necessity to stop the NATO expansion to the east and agree on security guarantees were also rejected.".
