 Shelling Intensified in Luhansk Region. Terrorists' Mortaring Started Again – Moskal

Terrorists shelled the Ukraine-controlled territory of the Luhansk region eight times over the past 24 hours.

This is stated by the press service of the Head of the Luhansk Regional State Administration Hennadii Moskal, Censor.NET reports.

"For comparison, there were only three attacks on Dec. 11. Milovskyi district located in the north of the Luhansk region, which is in 100 kilometers from the demarcation line, was attacked for the first time in a long time. The outskirts of Milove village, where a checkpoint of Ukrainian security forces is located, was repeatedly shelled with grenade launchers after midnight. It obviously is a result of the "work" of a subversive group," Moskal said.
