“Today a school has come under enemy fire in Toretsk: windows were broken, the roofing was damaged. Yesterday, a school was destroyed in Maiaky. Avdiivka Coke and Chemical Plant and the city itself are under enemy fire again. Here, Russians are continuously opening fire, killing civilians and destroying the region’s industrial potential,” Kyrylenko wrote.
