Shelling of the ambulance near Vodyane by the pro-Russian militants will be considered at the session of the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk as Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) Oleksandr Danylyuk reported on Facebook.
“Attacking army doctors, when they evacuate injured people is like attacking a person from the back. It is unacceptable from the ethic point of view and considering the norms of the international law,” Danylyuk wrote.
The NSDC Secretary noted that such demonstration of the aggression threatens to undermine all efforts on the peace settlement of Donbas conflict.
“The situation will be definitely considered within the session of the Trilateral Contact Group,” Danylyuk said.
Donbas 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.
