Editor’s note: If it isn’t obvious by now the shelling of the Donbass region in Ukraine dropping artillery shells in the middle of civilian infrastructure like on shops, schools, apartment complexes, stores, on top of houses and in the streets, is to provoke Russia further. The other day, the US-UK (NATO) alliance on Ukraine supporting the criminal gangsters in Kiev, had Ukrainian artillery units fire over 400 rounds on civilians in cities in Donbass. Patrick Lancaster is in the Donbass region and is recording the lethality and indiscriminate killing of civilians. The hoped for result is that there will be intensified hatred in the region that will lead to further war and killing. The US specializes in the application of terror on civilian populations to enrage and anger factions and ethnicities.

France Has Been Killing Civilians in the Donbass Since Yesterday
When the terror bombardments started again about 10 days ago on Donetsk and the cities of Donbass, it was immediately clear that something new had happened. Because at the sites of the Ukrainian artillery strikes, the same signs, the same remnants and pieces of shrapnel could of course be found. However, on 29 May, the impacts were nothing like what had already been observed. After analysis by the JCCC experts, it was clear that some of the shells had been fired by American M777 howitzers. [see Patrick Lancaster’s video report below] It took me a little more time to understand the nature of the shells, especially by talking to DPR soldiers or veterans of this army.
Caesars are now killing Russian civilians in the Donbass. So yesterday, apparently for the first time, French guns opened fire on civilians. Given the nature of the Ukrainian army, which has been shelling civilians since the beginning of this war, I was going to say with relish, this is not surprising and makes the responsibility of the French government even greater. As early as 2014, through the voices of senior officers of this army, or even President Poroshenko, or more recently Zelensky, it was clear that civilians were and are priority targets for Ukrainian forces. I personally remember a video that I have not found on the internet, where Ukrainian tankers were filming themselves hilariously bombing a massive building block in Donetsk (summer 2014).
In 2016, it was also the case of a sinister French neo-Nazi fighting under a false name (Thibault Dupire), in the Azov battalion and declaring on social networks his pleasure in killing civilians in the Donbass. Zelensky himself, in a very recent statement, said that Donbass would be a ruin and that it would be “deserted”, inferring that people will be killed before the conclusion of this war. In 2014, it was the Ukrainian army’s own chief of staff who, in a lengthy interview, explained that civilians were precisely a prime target. When asked about this, he said that this was a war strategy, cynically assuming that it was used by the entire Ukrainian army, whether neo-Nazi retaliation battalions or the regular army, since at the time these battalions were still independent of the army.
As Xavier Moreau explained in his bulletin N° 86, with Stratpol, the Caesar gun is a good piece of equipment, with the definite advantage of also being a self-propelled gun. The difficulty here for the republican forces and the Russian army is that this gun, although not armored, can fire a few shells and then move quickly to take cover, thus escaping the Russian counter-battery fire…and can start again a little further away. I don’t have the information yet about the nature of the ammunition fired, but it will come soon, because the Ukrainians are now firing every day on the cities of Donbass, especially on Donetsk, Gorlovka, Makeevka and Yaccinovataya. In yesterday alone, 7 people were killed and 16 wounded and the killing continues.
We notice every day that these shootings are carried out in short bursts. Apart from some bombardments (including the one we suffered on 4 June), As in the Petrovski district, where they aimed at a mine and the next day at a television antenna, the tactic is to launch a few shots, from a few shells to a dozen, and then let some time pass before opening fire again. Usually these shots don’t land in the same place, but hit other neighborhoods, or localities, half an hour or an hour or two later, sometimes more. These shootings are always carried out during the day, preferably when people are busy and moving around a lot. I have noticed myself that this often happens in the middle or late afternoon, sometimes more in the evening, especially if it is a weekend day.
