The LPR terrorists resumed shelling of cities and villages situated on the territory of the Luhansk region, controlled by Ukraine yesterday afternoon. They shelled Svitlychne village in the Popasna district from Grad multiple launch rocket systems at 02.45 p.m.

The missiles were falling directly in the village where the Ukrainian troops are deployed.

Miraculously no one was injured. The other shells damaged the facades of three houses and additional buildings on two streets of the village. Besides, four sections of the power lines were damaged. The residents of the affected apartments were resettled to the neighbors. The village of Nyzhnie local authorities' representatives together with the repairers are currently trying to restore power supply (the power supply will be restored today if there would be no shelling again). It was 25 degrees below zero in Svitlychne village in the morning.

"Svitlychne village was shelled from the direction of Kirovsk city occupied by the so-called Great Don Army Cossacks. This shelling of civilians on the very Christmas Eve using Grads is another proof that there is nothing sacred for the terrorists," governor of the Luhansk region emphasizes.

The city of Popasna, which is the capital of the district in the Luhansk region, was also shelled after 03.00 p.m. Five projectiles exploded within the city, fortunately, without causing serious damage and injuring any of the civilians. The shooting from assault rifles and heavy machine guns lasted all day and night long in the Stanytsia Luhanska village. The information about the victims is currently being verified.
