Ukrainian Shelling of Donetsk Kills Child and 9 Adults, and NZ Trained the Howitzer Artillerymen.

New Zealand readers who can stomach watching the TV news reports will have seen an item claiming that “Ukraine needs more ammunition” along with footage and interviews of Ukrainian artillerymen firing off shells into undisclosed targets. What you were NOT shown is where those shells were aimed and who they were killing. Nor who trained those artillerymen. Martin

The media reports that Donetsk was shelled four times in less than three hours with over 30 rockets, whereby a public transport vehicle, a trauma center, a park, and residential buildings were struck.

As a result of a shelling in the Donetsk People’s Republic’s (DPR), the mission to the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of issues related to Ukraine’s war crimes confirmed that the death toll reached nine, including one child.

Media reports stated that Donetsk was shelled four times in less than three hours with over 30 rockets, whereby a public transport vehicle, a trauma center, a park, and residential buildings were struck.

According to the DPR Health Ministry, 19 people were injured as it published on Telegram: “As a result of a massive shelling of the center of Donetsk, nine civilians (six women and two men), including a child – a girl of eight years old – were killed”.

DPR Ombudswoman Daria Morozova released a statement in February mentioning that more than 660 civilians, including 25 children, were killed during Ukraine’s shellings. They also resulted in the destruction of 10,000 houses, 130 medical institutions, over 480 educational institutions, 70 critical infrastructure facilities, and more than 770 electricity, water, gas, and heat supply facilities.

Earlier this month, Morozova said that international institutions have not yet taken appropriate measures against Ukraine for its violation of international humanitarian law, as she stated that Ukrainian forces have tortured captive soldiers of the DPR, violating the International Humanitarian Law (IHL) which protects all humans from torture, and cruel or inhumane treatment.

Torture and deliberate killing of prisoners of war is considered war crime under international law cases.

The International Criminal Court gladly mobilized against Russian President Vladimir Putin in March. Even though Russian individuals do not fall under the jurisdiction of the Court, judges of the court issued an arrest warrant to President Putin citing the “unlawful transfer of population (children) from occupied areas of Ukraine to the Russian Federation.”

Russia-Ukraine war: NZ to train Ukrainians to use howitzer, sending 30 Defence Force personnel to Britain – NZ Herald

New Zealand will send 30 troops to Britain to train Ukrainian forces how to use a type of howitzer.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern today said the Defence Force personnel would stay in the UK until the end of July for L119 light gun training.

The 105 mm calibre gun can be used in either offensive or defensive operations, according to the NZDF.

Ardern said New Zealand had been asked to help teach Ukrainians to use the guns, and Defence Force personnel would remain in the UK throughout the training.

Chief of Defence Force Air Marshal Kevin Short said 230 Ukrainians would be trained and each training session would take about one week.

And on a related theme:

Explainer: Why the 155 mm round is so critical to the war in Ukraine (

“Howitzer fires can strike targets up to 24 to 32 kilometres away, depending on what type of round and firing system is used, which makes them highly valued by ground forces to take out enemy targets from a protected distance.

“Adversaries don’t have much warning of it coming. And it’s harder to hide from incoming rounds that are arcing in from the top, which makes it highly lethal,” Brobst said.”

Yeah, and they’re aimed at Donetsk and killing civilians.
