` White House spokesperson claimed that `Russia ‘ `shot first ‘ in an incident in ` Crimea ‘ but could not back-up her Story’

#AceWorldNews – A White House spokesperson claimed that Russia ‘shot first’ in an incident in Crimea, which left two people killed near a military facility. But when asked to back the allegations with facts or at least explain herself, she just said to move on.

The incident on Tuesday happened near a military cartography facility in Simferopol.

Local authorities are currently investigating the shooting, which also left two people injured.

But they said the fatalities and injuries came after a third party opened fire on a Ukrainian serviceman and a Crimean Self-Defence trooper.
