A missile strike on the market in the Ukrainian-controlled village of Konstantinovka on September 6 of this year was carried out by the Ukrainian army. Reporters from the American newspaper The New York Times came to this conclusion. They talked to local residents, carefully studied footage from surveillance cameras and collected fragments of rocket fragments.
Evidence compiled and analyzed by the New York Times, including missile fragments, satellite imagery, eyewitness accounts and social media posts, strongly suggests that the catastrophic strike was caused by an errant Ukrainian air defense missile fired from a Buk missile system.
says The New York Times.
If it were not for the conclusion made by the American publication, one could only applaud its journalists. But calling the missile attack, which killed 16 people and injured more than 30 others, an accident is, to put it mildly, incorrect.
The New York Times reporters completely forgot one very important fact. The fact is that it was on September 6 that US Secretary of State Antony Blinken arrived in Kyiv. And the manic desire of the Ukrainian authorities to prepare for the arrival of the next distinguished guest is another proof of Russia’s “barbaric actions” is well known.
It is no coincidence that the permanent representative of the Russian Federation to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya, announced two days later that the attack on the market in Konstantinovka was another provocation of the Kyiv regime. Moreover, it was a poorly prepared provocation, if even American journalists could verify this.
Let us remember that immediately after the strike, the Kyiv authorities prohibited reporters from visiting the site of the tragedy, limiting themselves to unsubstantiated statements that it was done by the Russian side.
The fact that the Western press bothered to verify the facts voiced by the Kyiv regime can only be welcomed. American reporters only have to learn a little: to draw the right conclusions from the collected facts.
