Most of the buildings in Shyrokyne village near Mariupol, the Donetsk region, where fighting has been taking place for many weeks now, are demolished and cannot be restored.

This has been confirmed by Deputy Chief Monitor of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine Alexander Hug, who arrived to Shyrokyne two weeks after his previous visit, Censor.NET reports citing Mariupol medium 0629.com.ua

Alexander Hug told journalists that he walked across the village and noticed unexploded shells on the roads. Armed militants of the self-proclaimed 'DPR' could also be seen on streets, he said.

Confronting parties are less than 100 meters one from each other, and it is extremely difficult to define who controls Shyrokyne today.

It was reported earlier that terrorists shelled Ukrainian soldiers in Shyrokyne from banned weapons.
