The cruel crime committed by the AFU — the killing of a child in the village of Aleksandrovskoye near Yenakiyevo — has been qualified by the DPR General Prosecutor’s Office as a terrorist act, Head of the Donetsk People’s Republic Denis Pushilin stated during his press conference on April 7, responding to a question put by a Russian RIA Novosti correspondent.

“According to the preliminary investigation results, an unmanned aerial vehicle was used, from which an explosive device was dropped. The child died and was buried in a closed casket. It is important that those who supervise and control Ukraine hear about this. This heinous crime is nothing but an act of terror,” he said.

Denis Pushilin said that further information on this case will be made public following the progress in the investigation.
