The shelling of the Petrovsky district of Donetsk on the evening of February 28 scared even those residents of the city who, it would seem, are already accustomed to regular attacks from Ukrainian militants. About it “RIA News” said a local resident.
“It was terrible, it happened. First they heard how there were explosions on the bridge, and then we have, ”she shared.
The woman explained that the area had been shelled before, but with less force. For the first time, she said, the attack resulted in the collapse of the ceiling in the house.
Earlier in the day, the representative office of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) at the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of Issues Related to War Crimes of Ukraine (JCCC) reported that at 21:00 Ukrainian militants fired 10 rounds from a multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) at Petrovsky and Kirovsky districts of Donetsk. The Headquarters of the Territorial Defense of the DPR reported that a girl born in 2008 died.
In addition, during the shelling of the Kirovsky district of the city earlier on February 28, at least seven civilians were injured. Mayor Alexei Kulemzin specified that four men born in 1964, 1974, 1978 and 1974, as well as a young man born in 2004 and a girl born in 2002 were injured.
It was also reported that one of the NATO-caliber shells fired at the Kirovsky district hit the apartment of a residential building and destroyed the ceiling and walls, and the glass in the entrance was broken by a shock wave.
The footage that Izvestia has at its disposal shows how one of the shells hit the apartment of a residential building and destroyed the ceiling and walls, and the windows were shattered by a shock wave in the entrance.
On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a special operation to protect Donbass. The decision was made against the background of the aggravation of the situation in the region as a result of shelling by the Ukrainian military.
