The secret cross-border strikes of Russian artillery against Ukrainian army played a key role in the development of war in eastern Ukraine. A new report by Bellingcat, a citizen investigative group, reveals it was more frequent and massive than it was believed before.

While Russia denied ever having its artillery firing at the Ukrainian army from within the Russian territory, these attacks made it impossible for the Ukrainian troops to liberate the entire territory of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts from the Russian-backed separatists in summer 2014, leaving parts of it occupied till today.

Russia’s war against Ukraine has taken nearly 10,000 lives and forced about 1.7 million people to leave their homes. The fighting in Donbas still continues, with Ukrainian soldiers being wounded or killed almost daily.
