"Because of constant shelling and destruction, 13 schools have been closed. All of them are located in border areas, in the vicinity of Avdiivka, Marinka, Vynohradne, Novotroitske, Myronivskyi, Pisky, and Opytne. Two schools were closed because of the extensive damage and the danger of new attacks in Avdiivka and Krasnohorivka; all students were assigned to other educational institutions," the law enforcers informed.
Schools unsuitable for education remain closed because the situation across the demarcation line has escalated. The militants fire increasingly at civilians along the entire front line.
About a month ago, the militants shelled Novhorodske village with Grad rocked systems. Eight shells hit the ground next to the school, where 70 children and five teachers were at that moment. All of them survived.
