War in Ukraine | The July 15 Airstrike on Snizhne: Who to Blame?

This is still an unanswered question about the war in Ukraine, as so many other questions. The suffering of civilians is part of a blame game. The real blame lays with all that do nothing to stop these war crimes!


Local news: An airstrike in Snizhne destroyed a house. There are victims among the civilian population.

On Tuesday July 15, 2014 a warplane attacked the rebel-held town of Snizhne (Snezhnoye, Snezhnoe, ‘Snow’) in eastern Ukraine. Its rockets shattered an apartment building and a tax office. At least 11 people were killed.

Who was responsible for this attack? But first, who was blamed right after it?

(Pro-) Kiev & Western media

Dmitry Tymchuk (a member of the Ukraine parliament, military expert and blogger) blamed Russia for the early morning strike on Snizhne. “It must have been a Russian aircraft”, Tymchuk wrote on Facebook.  This message was spread by Ukrainian media and social media, like by Euromaidan on Twitter.

Interfax Ukraine reported that Andrey Lysenko, spokesperson of the National Security Council (NSDC) in Ukraine, had said the damage was caused by an unknown aircraft to discredit the Ukrainian military. Source:
