President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky thinks that the shelling of ambulance near Vodyane by the militants is a sneaky attempt to disrupt a difficult negotiation on the ceasefire in Donbas, as he has written on Facebook.
“Just landed for refueling (Ukrainian leader departed for Canada, where he will pay a visit up to July 3, - 112.international). I found out sad news from Donbas. Two people died, one wounded. The shelling of ambulance in Vodyane is the violation of the norms of the international humanitarian right, shameful and sneaky attempt to disrupt a difficult negotiation on the ceasefire in Donbas,” Zelensky wrote.
The president noted that Ukraine always acted and continues to act within the international agreements and international law.
“I urge our partners in Europe and the U.S. to respond adequately to the actions, which does not take us closer to the peace,” Zelensky added.
Militants attacked an ambulance of one of the Joint Forces units. One soldier died, two more sustained wounds after an anti-tank guided missile hit the vehicle. The military doctor was in critical condition and died in a few hours.
Joint Forces Command stressed that attack at the ambulances is a violation of the international legislation and norms of the international humanitarian law. Bloody attack at an ambulance performed by the Russian occupational units shows that militants do not observe international legal norms.
Later the names of the deceased were revealed. Leading seaman Serhiy Mayboroda and sergeant Iryna Shevchenko died in Donbas.
