Bulgaria: Ukrainian Kramatorsk Shelled After Termination of Ceasefire Mortar bombs are seen near a burnt Ukrainian military vehicle in Oktyabrskoe village, near the eastern Ukranian city of Kramatorsk, Ukraine. Archive photo by EPA/ROMAN PILIPEY.

Ukrainian military forces have waged a massive artillery fire at east Ukraine’s Donetsk regional city of Kramatorsk overnight to Wednesday.

“A strong gunfire had been waged at the city which was literally showered with shells. Powerful blasts were heard with a frequency like in automatic fire,” a representative of people’s militia told ITAR-TASS.

Several residential houses caught fire in the shelling in the settlement of Krasnogorka near the city of Kramatorsk. Massive communication breakdowns were reported in the city. Meanwhile locals were fleeing the zone of combat actions.

Active gunfire resumed in the city of Kramatorsk, after Ukraine's President Poroshenko announced the end of the ceasefire with pro-Russian separatists fighting in the eastern part of the country.

“We will attack and liberate our land,“ Poroshenko said in his address to people, saying that the termination of the ceasefire was the response to “terrorists, insurgents, marauders, everyone who tortures civilians, paralyzes the economy of the region, disrupts payments of salaries, pensions...and deprives people of normal peaceful life.“

;-)...Facts are "lies" and "propaganda"? Then Earth is plain, sure. The sickening belief in the own rightness, it's
what I like in such сreatures from Dark Age as that SWeet couple.

NATO Bombed civilians in Serbia including the Chinese Embassy.

Now a US EU NATO puppet is bombing and shelling Ukranians and there is no outcry from the West.

Gadafi did this in Libya, Assad does this in Syria, Poroshenko does this in the Ukraine.

The Kiev Government is recruiting violent Right Sector people into the army to kill more protestors in the East like they did in Mariupol and yes sa-sha these are the 21st Century SS.

They are about to fall in love with themselves. Everybody else got bored by the lies and naive propaganda they spread here. But it is their job and they are well paid for it.

It's so difficult trying to read the news when the inside of the screen is full of froth flying from the mouths of Putin's you idiots really think that anyone apart from your deluded selves actually believes, or even reads, the garbage you keep trotting out?

Like Assad? Like German SS (in Ukraine in 1942) would be more correct.
Thanks, Novinite, You wrote the truth this time: "Ukrainian military forces have waged a massive artillery fire
at east Ukraine’ of Kramatorsk" and at MANY other cities and villages, at CIVILIANS, Novinite.
"They [Ukrainian army] kill women, children...they purposefully kill civilians " (Margaret Zeidler, German journalist, came to Slavyansk for "fighting against Fascism"). Respect to Margaret.

Poroshenko is acting like Assad in Syria.

He is the Wests puppet in the US EU NATO Ukranian land grab.

Last Friday he signed agreements creating strong economic links between the Ukraine and the EU.

Because he is the Wests puppet he can bomb and shell civilians without critizm from international Western media and governments.

Poroshenko is a war criminal.
