Kiev’s forces have fired at least five rockets at the city of Makeevka, officials claim
At least two people – a woman and a small child – were killed on Tuesday during the shelling of the city of Makeevka, the authorities of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) have claimed. They said Ukrainian troops had fired at least five rockets at the city, which borders the republic’s capital Donetsk from the east.
“I will never forgive them for what they’ve done! We have lost the most precious thing we have! I hate this world! We have no life without her,” cried the grandmother of the deceased girl.
Five people were injured in Ukrainian fire during the day, according to the latest update from the DPR defense HQ. One of the locations damaged by the shelling was a school in Makeevka.
Another school that came under fire was located in Yelenovka, a village about 10km southwest of the capital, reports said. It was hit by three 152mm artillery shells, according to the DPR.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday, head of the Russian Investigative Committee Alexander Bastrykin held an operational meeting to discuss what needs to be done “to establish and assess the damage caused as a result of the criminal actions of the Ukrainian security forces in Donbass.”
