Russian shelling in the Donetsk region

It should be noted that the Russian army regularly strikes various settlements in the Donetsk region. The frontline cities and villages suffer the most from enemy shelling.

For example, as a result of artillery strikes by Russian forces on April 6 in the Pokrovsk district - in the villages of Kurakhivka and the town of Krasnohorivka - five people were killed. Among the victims were a 38-year-old mother and her 16-year-old daughter.

It should be noted that earlier Russian occupiers struck New York in the Donetsk region on April 4. As a result, two people were killed. The occupiers carried out four air strikes on the city. It is worth noting that at the beginning of March, Pokrovsk also came under heavy shelling. The occupiers launched rockets at a residential area.
