The head of the "A Just Russia - Patriots - For Truth" party in the State Duma of the Russian Federation, Sergey Mironov, called on the Russian military leadership to launch missile strikes on the headquarters and government buildings of Ukraine in retaliation for their shelling of Russian villages on the border with Ukraine.

According to Mironov: "Russia must "respond asymmetrically" to each shelling to protect residents of the regions that border on Ukraine. It is necessary to strike at those Ukrainian officials and military staff who authorise such terroristic attacks.

Complete security can only be guaranteed to citizens of Russia and Ukraine by the successful ending of Russia's special operation to defeat the neo-Nazis. I am convinced that this will be so".

Details: Mironov believes that the Ukrainian authorities are allegedly shelling the border villages to scare the Russian population and get them to protest against the war. However, he says that on the contrary, those residents support the war.

Reminder: Russian troops are continuing to fire on Ukrainian settlements in Chernihiv and Sumy oblasts.

Background:

  •       On 18 May, in the village of Solokhy, Belgorod Oblast [Russia], after the explosions, eyewitnesses found mortar shells.
  •       On 17 May, Belgorod Oblast authorities reported shelling of the village of Bezymyannoye near the Ukrainian border.
  •       On 15 May, the Russians reported the shelling of the village of Sereda, which is situated in Belgorod Oblast, allegedly from the Ukrainian border.

·        In late April, when explosions in the sky were first reported in the border areas with Ukraine, Mykhailo Podoliak, an adviser to the head of the President's Office of Ukraine, said that it was a "divine intervention" and not the actions of Ukrainian troops.
