Russians destroying Donetsk region: almost all frontline cities and villages under attack

In Donetsk region, almost all frontline cities and villages are currently under attack by the Russian aggressor.

Pavlo Kyrylenko, the head of the Donetsk Regional Military Administration, wrote this on Telegram, Ukrinform reports.

“Russians are destroying Donetsk region! Almost all populated areas of Donetsk region along the front line are under attack by the Russian armed horde,” the governor wrote.

As one example, he cited the Marinka community. Since Russia launched the large-scale invasion, the community has been virtually under constant fire.

"Since February 24, Russians have killed 11 civilians (including a child) and injured 48 others (including a child) in the Mariinka community. As many as 3 schools, 1 kindergarten, 3 administrative buildings, 13 apartment buildings; 322 private houses (97 of them were completely destroyed) and 26 enterprises have been damaged in the community,” Kyrylenko wrote.

He noted that despite the constant shelling, the evacuation of civilians from communities continues every day.

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the beginning of a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops have been shelling and destroying key infrastructure facilities, conducting massive shelling of residential areas of Ukrainian cities and villages using artillery, multiple rocket launchers and ballistic missiles.
