The propaganda of the russian federation has launched a campaign to discredit the supply of weapons to the AFU, accusing Ukraine of shelling civilians. This follows from the reports that quickly appeared after the shelling of the center of Donetsk and the death of local residents there that the oblast center was fired from howitzers supplied to Ukraine by NATO countries.

"American heavy howitzers reached Donetsk. It is noteworthy that they were immediately used to shell the Donetsk schools. That is why they brought them?"; "The shelling was carried out from new 155-mm NATO howitzers brought to the Donbas the day before"; "Today, Ukrainian shells hit this school, and they say - new American shells. People died and were injured"; "One of the Ukrainian shells, fired today from a NATO howitzer of the AFU, landed directly on the building of school No.22"; "The AFU artillery hit Donetsk with new, now NATO 155 mm howitzers", "Using heavy weapons from the USA, the AFU attacked the center of the city", - such comments by "political scientists" and "journalists" promptly appeared in information field of the russian federation and the "DNR".

As previously reported, occupational propaganda of the "DNR" reported shelling of the center of Donetsk on Monday, which, according to the local authorities, killed 6 people and injured 14 people.

Despite the fact that residents of Donetsk wrote in the roll-call chats that missiles and shells fired at the positions of the AFU were flying over the oblast center throughout the night, the occupiers were quick to blame Ukraine for what had happened. It is possible that this shelling of the center of Donetsk is a provocation to discredit the supply of weapons by the West to protect the territorial integrity of our country.
