According to sources, at least 3 civilians have been injured by shelling which struck the city of Donetsk over the past 24 hours. In the past week, 12 rebel fighters from the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) were also killed as a result of shelling.

Almost 20 areas in the city were targeted with artillery and mortar fire. As of 2016, the city had a population of almost 1 million.

The area is part of the Russia-backed, self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), which was declared in 2014. The DPR has been designated a terrorist organisation by the government of Ukraine, although it does maintain popular support in the area.

The resurrected SS zombie divisions of the 4th Reich murdering Russians, in this case in Novorossiya, again to please their sponsors McCain and Lindsey Graham, the senators trying to repeat the Ides of March by any kind of backstabbing.
If Mr. Trump would be serious in getting rid of these two deranged maggots I am quite sure that there are provisions even in the empire’s laws that formally forbid private contributions from elected officials to foreign wars.
