Chemical weapons used against militia in Mariupol - pro-federalization forces

MOSCOW. May 9 (Interfax) - The leaders of the "Donetsk People's Republic" claimed that self-defense forces in Mariupol came under a chemical attack when the City Council building was being stormed by Kyiv-controlled armed units.

"Armed groups controlled by Kyiv used unidentified chemical weapons on May 6 while storming the City Council headquarters," the foreign ministry of the "Donetsk People's Republic" said in a statement, posted in the Donetsk "people's governor" Pavel Gubarev's Facebook account.

"The defenders of the City Council have left the contaminated area. Many of them had their breathing systems damaged, which is likely to have consequences and probably be a danger to their lives," the statement says.

"Kyiv bears the entire responsibility not only for their state agencies' actions, but also for the actions by citizens who illegally apply means of chemical warfare," the statement says.

The statement urges the world community to condemn the use of a toxic choking gas in Mariupol and to take comprehensive measures to subject the Kyiv authorities to international isolation."

The authors also urged Russia to influence the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons into organizing a full-scale probe in Mariupol into the use of chemical weapons by the Kyiv authorities."

No confirmation of this information from other sources is available to Interfax. The Ukrainian leadership has not commented on it, either.
