STATEMENT of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Donetsk People's Republic

The 2nd of May, 2014
OFFICIAL STATEMENT of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Donetsk People's Republic Regarding Responsibility for the Punitive Operation and War Crimes Committed on the 2nd of May in the Territory of the DPR

On the night of the 1st/the 2nd of may armed units subordinate to the Kiev junta committed war crimes in the territory of the Donetsk People Republic by attacking the peaceful towns of Slavyansk and Kramatorsk and using armor and air strike against civilians. Grave crimes against peace and security have been committed; under the norms of international law they nave no period of limitation and cannot be ever forgiven.
The orders to commit those war crimes come from the leaders of illegitimate Kiev regime Turchinov, Nalyvaichenko, Avakov, Parubiy and other persons who will be convicted by the future International Criminal Tribunal for the former Ukraine for war crimes committed against civilians.
That said, the Kiev terrorists' string-pullers are international financial circles that spur the illegitimate Kiev authorities towards new atrocities and acts of terror. Thus, on the 30th of April, 2014, the IMF Executive board approved terms of a loan for Ukraine and issued a tranche thereof. After the approval of that loan, the Kiev junta "obtained immediate access to funds amounting to 3.2 billion US Dollars". Special attention should be paid to the IMF loan provision term under which the provision of further tranches within the framework of "emergency access to the Fund resources" will depend directly on the extent of control Kiev exercises over the territories of Ukrainian regions. In the present day-t—day realities that means a direct proportion with the "success" of the punitive operation carried out by the Ukrainian army in Slavyansk, Kramatorsk, Donetsk, Lugansk and other population centers that had proclaimed their refusal to recognize the illegitimate authority of the Kiev junta.
