The Russian Foreign Ministry claimed that Washington continued to humiliatingly call some representatives of the Donbas as "separatists", Joinfo.ua reports with reference to the Russian media.

"It is sad that the Department of State continues to humiliating call residents of the Donbas, who are forced to fight for their civil, political, economic rights and the right to life due to repressive policies of the Kyiv authorities, as "separatists". It seems that the United States has forgotten its own history of struggle for freedom, as they try to deny others their legal rights," the Ministry stated.

It should be recalled that the war waged by Russia in ongoing in the Donbas. On June 3 morning, the militants stormed Marinka and Krasnohorivka. Thousands of militants are trying to break into Marinka and accumulate forces near Krasnohorivka. The militants from the residential areas of Donetsk were delivering fire provoking the Armed Forces of Ukraine to strike back.

Subsequently, the General Staff allowed the Ukrainian artillery "to respond" to the firing. The Ukrainian soldiers received reinforcement. The militants are trying to jam communications, but the Armed Forces of Ukraine respond adequately, evacuate the dead and wounded. Nobody is going to give up on Marinka.

At the moment, Marinka has been already assaulted three times.

As it is known, earlier, Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the President of Russia, said that German Chancellor Angela Merkel used the word "annexation" in relation to Crimea incorrectly.
