"People continue to die almost every day in Avdiivka from Russian strikes. They are our neighbors, friends, and someone's relatives and acquaintances – our peaceful residents," the message states.

It is mentioned that today, in addition to the woman who was injured in the morning, a man born in 1954 was killed as a result of artillery shelling in his own yard.
