"Pokrovsk and Rivne of the Myrnohrad community were struck the most. The enemy cynically hits civilians, trying to bring as much grief to our land as possible. They will be punished for everything!" stressed Filashkin.

As reported, at least six people were wounded in the enemy shelling of the Donetsk region’s Pokrovsk on January 6. There are still civilians under the rubble. The rescue operation is ongoing.
