NATO countries’ silence on Novoaidar strike proves their involvement  - Foreign Ministry

A lack of reaction on the part of NATO countries to the aftermath of the Kiev strike at the Novoaidar township is another proof of their involvement in the conflict, said the Russian Foreign Ministry.   
Ukrainian forces fired four missiles from a US-made high mobility artillery rocket system at Novoaidar on Saturday morning hitting a hospital and six homes.  Fourteen patients were killed and another 24 were wounded.
The deliberate attack at an operating medical facility and targeted killing of civilians is “grave war crime by the Kiev regime and its western colleagues,” Russian diplomats said. “A lack of reaction from the USA and other NATO countries to this horrible trampling of international humanitarian law by Kiev is another proof of their direct involvement in the conflict and crimes which are being committed.”
In so doing, they are demonstrating a double standards policy. “The West, together with Kiev, got hysterical in connection with the provocative fake “crimes” of the Russian army in Bucha and Irpen which had never really happened, but keep turning a blind eye to outrages and barbaric actions by the Nazi Kiev regime which kills civilians with American, British, French and German weapons. They dash around with the ideas to set up an illegitimate “tribunal” against Russia, but say nothing about the trial of the Ukrainian leadership and military for their obvious daily crimes.  The clumsy tactic is an apparent attempt to divert attention from one’s responsibility for their perpetration.
“The West and Kiev have neither formal nor moral right to make the above absurd accusations against Russia. The acts of criminal outrage committed by Kiev armed formations under the aegis of the West will not be left unpunished. They are carefully recorded. The organizers and perpetrators will suffer inevitable punishment,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
The Ukrainian government launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation against Donbass in April 2014.  The peace talks that began soon thereafter failed to reach tangible results due to Kiev’s position to settle the conflict by force.
On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation to protect Donbass residents from Ukrainian aggression. Prior to that, LPR and DPR Heads Leonid Pasechnik and Denis Pushilin asked the Russian leader to provide military assistance.
The Lugansk People’s Republic acceded to Russia on September 30, 2022 following the unification referendum. *i*ie
