Despite evidence to the contrary in a town that the Ukrainian military controls, some still blamed Ukrainian soldiers for the attack.

Local people at the scene, telling the Kyiv Post that the town had been shelled by the Ukrainian side, called on the media to “tell the truth.”

“If it had been the (Russian-separatist forces), they wouldn’t have left a stone standing here!” said Natalia, a 43-year-old woman who was too afraid to give her full name. She blamed those who “danced on the Maidan,” for the attack, adding that “the war will be finished and we will live in happiness as soon as the Ukrainian army is away from the Donbas.”
