Shocking Eyewitness Video: June 10, 2014, Slavyansk. City Destroyed by Bombs
The newly elected president of Ukraine Petro #Poroshenko promised to stop military operation in the east of Ukraine (Donbass and Lugansk) and to create humanitarian corridors so people could leave the areas being bombed by his troops. In reality, the opposite is happening.
The city in ruins: below is eyewitness video report about last night’s bombing of #Slavyansk, the long-suffering city in #Donetsk Republic that takes the brunt of the Kiev junta attacks. With English subs, which are not very good, but you can get the idea.
I’ve added my own translation to help in understanding what they are talking about. This is a quick translation. Apologies if it’s not polished enough. My time is limited, but I felt this was too important and needed to be posted.
“As a result of the last night’s shelling of the residential areas near city center, one woman was killed, another heavily injured. The shelling was highly concentrated, and it targeted the purely residential area.”
A woman says: “Poroshenko has blood on his hands. These are the worst rulers we have ever had. Killing young people, children. He thinks he will be forgiven? He is up to his neck in blood. Damn him. We should go to Kiev and do the same to him. With all his ill-gotten wealth. Damn oligarch. Tell him that. Idiot. Mainly retirees live here. No gas, no electricity. Americans want our land, that’s why they make war. That’s all.”
Man: “All doors have been blown off. Nothing is left in most apartments. All apartments are standing open. Who is going to guard our possessions?’
Militia man to cameraman: “Don’t show me, I am not that interesting. Show how they are shooting at civilians.”
“Stray dogs follow us everywhere we go because they are afraid of bombings too. They know they are safer with us.”
Woman: “They (Kiev junta – LR) have no conscience if they shoot civilians, and destroy the peaceful city. We lived peacefully; the old wanted to die in peace, the young wanted to grow in peace. Where is that Europe now? Let them see what’s really going on here. How they bomb us from planes. Ukraine hides this reality from the world. Ukraine doesn’t want this to be seen… Boys, quickly, hide behind the house.”
Man: “There are only two of us left on this street, because we have nowhere to go.” Woman: “Terrible.” Man:” We’ll survive somehow.”
A simple woman about junta, oligarchs, Americans, and who and why started the civil war in Ukraine: “We are tired of this senseless war, one people – against each other. They (Kiev junta, oligarchs – LR) want riches. They can’t take any riches to another world. The only difference when you die is that some will have richer coffins than others. Those idiots wanted power and riches and that’s why they have started this war. Americans, I am sure, are happy. Americans are dreaming about a war in Europe. They think they are far away and safe, meanwhile, they’ll do good business selling arms to the warring factions. Europe to them is disposable.”
Some of these people spoke Russian and some Ukrainian, yet they all said the same thing.
