On August 2, a representative of the Russian military department, Igor Konashenkov, said that the White House is responsible for all rocket attacks approved by Kyiv on residential areas and civilian infrastructure in Donbas settlements and other regions where civilians have died. This is how he commented on the deliveries of HIMARS to Ukraine.

Prior to this, on July 25, Alchevsk had already been fired upon by rockets from the American HIMARS MLRS. There were no reports of casualties or impact on infrastructure.

On February 24, Russia announced the start of a special operation to protect the civilian population of Donbass. It began against the backdrop of the situation in the region that worsened in mid-February. Then the authorities of the DPR and LPR reported on the increased shelling by the Ukrainian troops, announced the evacuation of the civilian population in the Russian Federation and asked for recognition of independence. On February 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a corresponding decree.
