Rinat Akhmetov statement on the tragedy in Severny settlement, Kuibyshevsky District, Donetsk


A few hours ago, mortar shells have landed in my home settlement, near the school where I studied.

Several teenagers were on a football pitch at that time. Two of them died and four were injured and taken into intensive care.

Another terrible tragedy has happened! Innocent people, this time children, have suffered!

First of all, I want to give my deepest compassion to the families of those who died. I want to tell the families of the injured that we will do everything to put their children back on their feet. I also wish to underline that we never leave anybody in trouble! My humanitarian centre will help all the people who suffered in this tragedy. 

Tell me, how many children must die, how many people must be killed and injured, how many tears must be shed to stop this war?!

I call on everybody – cease the fire! Stop killing civilians! Stop killing our children!
