Chemical weapons used against self-defense in Mariupol – pro-federalization activists


The leaders of the “Donetsk People’s Republic” claimed that self-defense forces in Mariupol came under a chemical attack when the City Council building was being stormed by Kiev-controlled armed units. “Kiev bears the entire responsibility not only for their state agencies’ actions, but also for the actions by citizens who illegally apply means of chemical warfare,” the statement says.

“Armed groups controlled by Kiev used unidentified chemical weapons on May 6 while storming the City Council headquarters,” the foreign ministry of the “Donetsk People’s Republic” said in a statement, posted in the Donetsk “people’s governor” Pavel Gubarev’s Facebook account.

“The defenders of the City Council have left the contaminated area. Many of them had their breathing systems damaged, which is likely to have consequences and probably be a danger to their lives,” the statement says.

The statement urges the world community to condemn the use of a toxic choking gas in Mariupol and to take comprehensive measures to subject the Kiev authorities to international isolation.”

The authors also urged Russia to influence the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons into organizing a full-scale probe in Mariupol into the use of chemical weapons by the Kiev authorities.”
