"The data collected and analyzed by The New York Times, including rocket fragments, satellite images, witness testimony and social media posts, give good reason to believe that the catastrophic strike was the result of a Ukrainian air defense missile that went off course," the publication said.

The NYT also noted that the Ukrainian authorities tried to deny journalists access to the wreckage of the rocket and the scene of the incident affected by the strike, but reporters still managed to interview witnesses and collect fragments of the gun.

Thanks to recordings from CCTV cameras, journalists found out that the missile flew into Kostiantynivka from the direction of the territory controlled by Ukraine, and not from Russian positions, and the strike coincides with two missile launches from the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Earlier, the Russian permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya, said at the UN Security Council on Ukraine that it follows from the video with the strike on Kostiantynivka that the missile was fired from the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, said that Kyiv would not investigate the missile attack on Kostiantynivka.

On the afternoon of September 6, an explosion thundered at the central market in Konstantinovka, controlled by the Kyiv regime. The Ukrainian authorities and the media groundlessly accused Russia of shelling civilians.

However, according to experts, upon closer examination of the arrival video from surveillance cameras, you can see that the missiles flew from the western part of the city - from the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
