The town of Telmanovo was shelled by the Kiev junta’s punitive forces on June 4, 2015, from Granitnoye village, Volnovaha region, controlled by the junta’s forces. The shelling that abruptly started at around 19:45 took away the life of a 5-year old boy, Vanya Nesteruk, who was playing outside with his friends at that time. Three adults were injured. The shelling targeted the private households and the school stadium. More than 20 rockets have hit Telmanovo on that day.
The United States-supported Kiev’s punitive forces continued the shelling on the following day as the “Essence of Time” war correspondent, callsign “Texas”, was interviewing the locals on camera.
