 Amvrosiivka Downtown is Partially Destroyed by Terrorist Attacks

The center of the Amvrosiivka city in the Donetsk region was partially destroyed by rocket attack.

The locals reported to the journalist of ZN.UA that the city was attacked on June 15 at dawn. They believe that the DPR (the Donetsk People's Republic) militants fired Amvrosiivka of BM-21 "Grad" missile complex, Censor.NET informs.

Only the central part of the city was attacked. A few shops in the local market as well as one private building were completely destroyed as a result of the attack. The shrapnel damaged some more buildings.

The exact information about the victims is not yet available. Several people were injured according to reports, but nothing certain could be said about the killed ones.

The Ukrainian Army controlled the city since the ATO has started. A few local separatists were detained after the first attempts to organize riots and seize administrative buildings.

The Ukrainian army units currently based here have strengthened the city's defenses and tightened security measures.

Earlier, a similar incident occurred in Dobropillia on June 13. The terrorists aimed at military checkpoints, but they miscalculated and attacked civil targets. The rocket attack from BM-21 "Grad" missile complex killed one civilian, another one was heavily injured. The Ukrainian army reconnaissance group managed to capture the missile complex together with the documents proving the Russian origin of heavy weapon that got into terrorists' hands.
