This is stated by the press service of Luhansk Regional State Administration chairman Hennadii Moskal, Censor.NET reports.
Fortunately, the lessons were over, and the children had gone home. The principal and vice principal were still in school, but they were not hurt. As a result of the bombardment the school has been partially ruined; studying in the school premises is not possible. Rescue and repair services have been dispatched to the site.
"The actions of the terrorists cross all possible lines of morality. Even the Nazis did not act this way," chairman of the Luhansk Regional State Administration Hennady Moskal said. "The Ukrainian military has never been deployed in Toshkivka as the militants are well aware. Therefore, the shelling of the school was deliberate. We reported this brute fact to the OSCE mission and now through the media inform the Ukrainian and world public - the terrorists of the so-called LPR ostentatiously violate the Geneva Convention of 1949 (ratified by the USSR in 1954) on the protection of civilians during military operations. Even a direct threat to the life and health of children does not stop them," Moskal said.
