MINSK, 28 June (BelTA) - Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN Dmitry Polyansky believes that the Armed Forces of Ukraine set up another provocation in Kremenchug similar to Bucha, RIA Novosti reported.
"It looks like we are dealing with a new, Bucha-styled provocation," the diplomat said. "There are too many inconsistencies in the situation with the shopping center in Kremenchug. This is exactly what the Kiev regime needs: to keep focus on Ukraine ahead of the NATO summit." Dmitry Polyansky also urged to wait for the official information from the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation.
The footage of a burning shopping center in Kremenchug was circulated on social networks on the evening of 27 June. Kiev said that the shopping center was allegedly hit by a missile strike.
