"Here is the latest of AFU (armed forces of Ukraine) attacks on
civilians in Luhansk. Something that you don't hear about in the US.
The LPR reported about 291 civilians became victims of the AFU
aggression, of which 72 people were killed and 219 were injured. As a
result of the shelling, three children were killed and 19 children
were injured.
The LPR recorded: 1030 attacks on the territory of the Republic by AFU
using heavy weapons. In total, AFU used 10389 ammunition of various
calibers, including missiles of the "Tochka-U" (33 missiles) and the
American MLRS M142 HIMARS (21 missiles), MLRS (BM-21 "Grad", BM-27
"Uragan” (“Hurricane"), and BM-30 "Smerch") – in all cases 2153
shells.
In Novaya Kakhovka, hit by AFU heavy weapons July 11th, totally 65
houses, 3 factories and almost 250 shops were damaged by the shelling,
the region’s military and civil Administration reported. The American
satellite Worldview-2 was spotted over Novaya Kakhovka three days
before the AFU made such barbaric strike.
Every day AFU fire 250-450 shells against peaceful, non-military areas
in Donbass, waging war against its citizens and Russians, against
cities."

As he cited no source, by name , and gave no url, I went digging.

There are five sections total on this webpage. Lombardo just copied
and pasted what was in the fifth paragraph to the eighth paragraph, in
the first section.

1. AFU TERRORIZE CIVILIANS IN DONBASS
The DPR has completed collecting recent data on the dead and injured
civilians on the territory it controls since February 24 till mid-July
2022: 247 civilians have been killed, including 16 children, and 1,493
civilians, including 83 children, have been wounded after
indiscriminate and barbaric fire by Armed Forces of Ukraine actively
sponsored by the USA and NATO.

AFU also damaged in the DPR: 5452 residential houses; 1218 civil
infrastructure facilities, including 72 medical facilities, 237
educational buildings, 445 social security assets, 32 critical
infrastructure facilities, 432 electricity, water and gas supply
facilities, and 667 vehicles.

In total, 5823 facts of shelling were recorded, 5494 of them with the
use of heavy weapons – in many cases suoolied by the USA and NATO
countries.

Against the DPR AFU fired 48,487 ammunition of various calibers,
including 31 missiles from the Tochka-U missiles (each having 15,000
bomblets), 14 BM-30 Smetch missiles, 149 BM-27 Hurricane MLRS missiles
and 8,480 BM-21 Grad MLRS missiles.

The LPR reported about 291 civilians became victims of the AFU

The LPR recorded: 1030 attacks on the territory of the Republic by AFU

Even the tankies at the Morning Star of the CPGB had a far lower
number of killed civilians.

Nor does Donbass Insider, report the same casualty figure from
Lombardo’s cut and paste, which lacked his source url.
