Donetsk, Jul 16 – DAN.  DPR has dismissed Ukrainian accusations of shelling Novgorodskoye (renamed to New York in Ukraine), said DPR People's Militia deputy chief-of-staff Eduard Basurin.

"The commander of the 10th mountain assault brigade Vyacheslav Kotlin was ordered to provide for the work of France Press journalists in the area of Novgorodskoye, renamed New York, where any street if full of houses destroyed in Ukrainian offensive against Donbass at the beginning of the war," he said.

Last week, the JFO HQ requested lists of destroyed property from a number of city administrations, including Novgorodskoye. They were also prescribed to assist French journalists in portraying the destructions of 2014-2015, results of Kiev's aggression, as the aftermath of recent DPR attacks.

"We call on foreign journalists to be objective when covering the situation in Donbass," Basurin said. *ot
