MOSCOW, May 12 (RIA Novosti) – Ammunition for servicemen is being transferred by plane to the area of an ongoing special operation in eastern Ukraine’s Slaviansk, the country’s acting Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said Monday.
“We are flying by a cargo plane with soldiers ... We are carrying new ammunition and protective means for Omega [special forces] troops,” Avakov wrote on Facebook.
The Communist Party of Ukraine earlier called on the Kiev authorities to stop the special operation in eastern Ukraine and endorse federalization in an effort to avoid casualties in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
The Party of Regions has also demanded that Kiev stop the special operation in the southeast of the country.
A prominent parliamentarian, Oleksandr Yefremov, said he is considering turning to international courts to bring to justice those responsible for the crimes, adding that “military actions that result in deaths among civilians cannot be called anything other than a military crime.”
The Russian Foreign Ministry said earlier that Western politicians, including from the US and NATO countries, were responsible for inciting radicals to overthrow the government and escalate the crisis in Ukraine.
