The Armed Forces of Ukraine do not let civilians out of their homes during shelling in order to use them as human shields, said Emmanuel Leroy, president of the French humanitarian association Let’s Save the Children of Donbass, who visited Donbass.

“We saw destroyed cities, like Volnovakha, 80% in ruins. But the residents of the affected cities in unison all told us why the houses were destroyed. Because they were held by Ukrainian nationalists. The military forces of Ukraine simply took these houses of civilians and kept them like a human shield, kept them in these houses to continue their military operations,” Leroy said.

On February 24, Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine. Vladimir Putin made this decision after the escalation of the conflict in the Donbass and requests for help from the Heads of the LDPR. In his statement, the Russian leader stressed that the special operation is aimed at the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine.
