The attacks were carried out with Iskander missiles on "a temporary deployment point" of the paramilitary group Kraken, denounced by Russia for expressing Nazi ideology.
The militia, which answers to the Ministry of Defense but is not part of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, has denounced the accusations as Russian propaganda but some of its commanders admitted last month to the US newspaper 'Washington Post' that a minority of its members were affiliated in the past to far-right groups.
Konashenkov has indicated that the Iskander attacked the post, located near the city of Bogodukhov, and destroyed more than ten units of military equipment stored in a local processing plant. "More than 30 Nazis were destroyed," according to the spokesman.
