The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has “condemned in the strongest terms” the shelling of civilians at a trolleybus stop in Donetsk, Ukraine, which killed up to 15 people and injured over 20 others on Thursday, according to the statement. The UNSC has also called for an independent investigation into the incident. “The members of the Security Council underlined the need to conduct an objective investigation and bring perpetrators of this reprehensible act to justice,” the statement said. The trolleybus stop was hit by two shells, the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine said on Thursday. The Security Council also stressed the importance of adhering to the Minsk agreements on the ceasefire amid intensified military operations in eastern Ukraine.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
