Donetsk, Dec 14 – DAN. The Kiev forces shooting at Mayorskoye checkpoint that resulted in two civilian deaths shows Ukraine's disregard for human rights, the Republic’s ombudswoman Daria Morozova said on Tuesday.

"Today's tragedy that claimed two lives has again showed that Ukraine ignores human rights asserted by international humanitarian law. By firing at a passenger bus crossing the contact line at Mayorskoye checkpoint Ukraine showed unwillingness to observe the integral rights of Donbass people – right for life and for personal security, guaranteed by international conventions," she said.

She emphasized that this is not the first time Kiev servicemen fire at civilians at checkpoints. She reminded how they opened fire on Elenovka checkpoint this spring killing five civilians and wounding 10.

"I express my sincere condolences to those who lost their relatives in this tragedy. I want to remind the Ukrainian side that every violation of human rights will be documented and passed to European Court of Human Rights and to International Criminal Court," Morozova said.

Earlier on Wednesday two civilians were killed and two wounded as Kiev forces fired at the queue at Mayorskoye checkpoint outside Gorlovka township. One passenger in a bus was killed by Ukrainian military, another died of heart attack on the site. *ot
