"The shelling lasted the night before and yesterday. Aircraft were used. More than ten apartment buildings, private houses and a police station building were destroyed. The body of one victim has been found so far. A wounded woman was immediately evacuated to Kramatorsk. We are establishing the final number of victims, because yesterday it was almost impossible to move around the city safely," Haidai said.
