“This morning at 7:00am there was heavy fire using anti-tank rocket launchers on the outskirts of the village and the “grey zone “, – said the head of village administration, Konstantin Chaly. “Shelling has ended, but we can not inspect the damage to people’s property, because there are no security guarantees.”
