The authorities of the "DNR" solemnly opened the renovated Debaltseve kindergarten No. 8, which was heavily damaged during the fighting in February 2015. This is reported by the separatist media.
At the same time, the destruction of a child's preschool institution is traditionally attributed to "shelling by the Ukrainian military".
In fact, the Ukrainian city Debaltseve was seriously destroyed in February 2015, when in violation of the Minsk agreements, the militants with the support of Russian troops carried out the seizure of the city. In order to dislodge the Ukrainian units from Debaltseve, the pro-Russian troops subjected the city to massive artillery fire.
After the withdrawal of the Ukrainian troops, the authorities of the "DNR" are constantly trying to shift responsibility for the destruction to the Ukrainian state. However, the Ukrainian army did not shell Debaltseve, it was located in the city and took upon itself the fire of enemy artillery.
It is significant that at the solemn opening of the renovated kindergarten in spite of the propaganda requirement to blame Ukraine, there were words that indirectly confirm that the residents of Debaltseve remember who exactly shelled their city.
"The reconstruction of the kindergarten Zvezdochka has been going on since February 2015 (since the barbaric seizure of the city by militants - OstroV), it was rebuilt from scratch”, - Oksana Kozlova, the deputy head of the occupation administration of Debaltseve, said.
"When Debaltseve was liberated and the Ukrainian troops left, it was very painful to look at the kindergarten: burnt walls, broken ceilings. There were a lot of hits into the building - 3 Uragan shells, 12 shells from the Grad", - the head of the kindergarten Lyudmila Scherbinina reminded about the consequences of the "liberators’" shelling.
