The psychiatric hospital, kindergarten, clinic and their surrounding areas area are almost completely destroyed by the shells. Terrible gaping holes can be seen in the walls of houses. Windows are smashed together with frames. Roof and floors are damaged and burned, Censor.NET reports citing Sirgis-Info.
The burned truck belonged to the customer of local furniture factory. The enterprise itself was also inflicted by the artillery shelling, since it is located in the industrial area, which was shelled from mountain Karachun. The Ukrainian army fired in response to the attacks that terrorists carried out on the Ukrainian troops' positions.
Almost everything is burned. Owners, local businessmen, have lost their businesses, which they created and developed for 20 years. According to them, the war destroyed 250 jobs.
Journalists who worked in Chechnya recall that the destruction in Grozny was quite comparable with this one. But Stalingrad comes to the mind more often. The leader of Donetsk separatists Pavel Gubarev promised Ukrainian citizens to "arrange Stalingrad" in one of his posts on Facebook.
"I must admit that Gubarev keeps his word. He promised to arrange Stalingrad, and Semenivka is very similar somewhere. This is what happens when a madman takes power," Donetsk blogger and journalist Denys Kazanskyi writes.
