Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to the head of the Presidential Office, announced that there are no plans to investigate the rocket attack in Kostyantynivka, as Ukraine is confident that it was a Russian missile. Podolyak expressed this position during an interview with journalist Oleksandr Plyushchev on the Breakfast Show.
"Why do we need an investigation if everything is obvious to us? We have more than six thousand missiles. We have to confirm every piece of debris because someone came out and said: "You know, Ukraine is attacking itself"? For us, it is obvious and confirmed that this is one of the missile strikes of the Russian Federation, which strikes certain cities, especially the border cities, every night and every day. The missile was Russian, it is an MLRS system, it will be established who struck and from what distance, it will be clearly stated by name: who, what, and so on," said the advisor to the head of the OP.
As a reminder, the missile attack on Kostyantynivka took place on the afternoon of September 6, when a missile hit the area of a local market. According to the latest reports, 16 people were killed in the attack.
It is worth noting that Julian Repke, a columnist for the German newspaper Bild, and Ruslan Leviev, founder of the Conflict Intelligence Team (CIT), independently analyzed the video and other evidence and came to the same conclusion that the missile was launched from the northwestern direction, which is controlled by the Ukrainian Armed Forces at a distance of up to 250 km. Leviev also suggested that the incident could have been a "tragic accident."
