Meeting the people of Donbass

00:22 -“Why is it in any other place it’s called a “war” and here in Donbass it’s a “conflict”? I do not understand, aren’t we the same people as everyone else? Are we different? Subhumans or what?

07:35 – They place tracking devices and correct fire! They were accused of that and didn’t even deny, by the way. What tracking devices?

After their visit, exactly this spot is shelled later.
They hand over coordinates to Ukrainian forces.
They leave a tracking device and Ukrainian forces later, literally, 15 minutes after OSCE mission departure…it has never been bombed, but 15 minutes after OSCE leaves shelling of this village begins!
They didn’t even try to give an explanation when they were accused in placing tracking devices.
What could they say?
They follow the order of U.S. Department of State!”
