Ukrainian regime forces fire live rounds at Russia television crew and journalists

Hours after a story broke of the kidnapping of Russian journalist Anna Kurbatova in Kiev, news has come in that a crew of photojournalists from Russia-24, the sister outlet of Kurbatova’s outlet Russia’s Channel One, has been targeted with live rounds by forces loyal too the Ukrainian regime.

The journalists were on assignment in Donetsk covering the so-called “school ceasefire” which was to pause military activities in Donbass in the run-up to the beginning of the new school year on the 1st of September. Regime forces have violated the ceasefire multiple times, rendering it redundant.

Andrey Rudenko from Russia’s Channel One described the events in the following way,

“The camera crew arrived today in the Yasynuvata district to cover how the truce is being observed. As soon as they arrived, the shooting began. First, with the use of small arms, then of heavy, there were three or four bursts”.

A representative of the Donetsk People’s Republic confirmed the incident. He stated,

“Today in the area of Yasynuvata the crew of Russia-24 TV channel came under fire by Ukrainian forces. No one was injured … The enemy is constantly carrying out shooting in this area, despite the agreements”.

While it is not clear if the kidnapping of Anna Kurbatova was conducted in direct coordination with the military assault on the crew from Russia-24, it is becoming increasingly clear that the Kiev regime is acting under orders to intimidate and harm Russian journalists.

Anna Kurbatova?

Wish her well and that they release her asap. Is she the journalist behind ‘Anna News’, who has done so much to explain events in Eastern Ukraine?

Good luck and no doubt the OSCE, Journalists Without Borders and all the rest of Kiev’s supporters will say nought.

This is terrible. But be clear, the latest visit by the agents of the regime change in Ukraine, Mattis General in charge of the US Junta and head of their soft military coup, has led to a further escalation in military action by their Ukrainian putsch installed government. It is clear that the situation in Ukraine is deteriorating again following the certain supply of US munitions – which he agreed to. This situation where the Ukraine Junta’s military are attacked reporters working in a civil war zone should get front page WMSM COVERAGE. But given that their hacks are now… Read more »

These are the “European values” championed by Merkel and modern Germany. Germany has reverted to its dark past under Merkel. What excuse does the rest of Europe have? Shame on all of them.
Guess what would happen if I wrote this on DW?
Looks like the Stasi are back in modern Germany, leader of the EU. Disgusting!

Hollywood version of Stasi, or the real Stasi?

I don’t do those comparisons anymore, unless I really have done my homework.

This should be ringing alarm bells all through Europe and the Western World. In a society that is functioning with the best interests of the community in mind, there should be no need to censor and attack the media. This attack on the media shows something: The country is in crisis. How is adding more weapons to a country that is CONTROLLED by Nazi’s going to help the situation? It’s not. It’s supposed to make things worse. That is the plan. That is the way the DeepState are going to “Justify” another invasion of a European country by NATO. This… Read more »

UN Resolution 1738 “In the preamble of the resolution, the Security Council reaffirmed its responsibility in the maintenance of international peace and security under the United Nations Charter, while further reaffirming that parties to armed conflict were responsible in taking steps to protect civilians. In this context, it recalled the Geneva Conventions and Protocols I and II, with particular attention to references concerning the protection of journalists. There were also existing prohibitions in international law against the deliberate targeting of civilians in armed conflict and Council members called for those responsible for attacks to be brought to justice.[4] The resolution… Read more »

Neo-nazi Ukraine has no intention to accept or apply the Minsk Agreement.
I think that, in the long run, Russian Federation will have to accept Donetsk and Lugansk request to join it. It’s the only way to end the war there. Porkshenko will never dare attack the Russian army. Nor would his backer the US.

Donetsk People’s Republic leader Alexander Zakharchenko: “We have only one goal, returning to the homeland”.
