This was announced by Luhansk region deputy governor Yurii Klymenko, Censor.NET reports.
According to him, the town of Shchastia suffered the most - a 120 mm mortar attack damaged the walls and roofs, broke windows of residential buildings. A house burnt down on Pryozerna Street. A local church was damaged. Power lines and water supply facilities in residential quarters were slightly damaged. Reconstruction works are underway.
Klymenko said a local nurse, born 1985, received a double shrapnel wound to the head. Doctors are doing their utmost to save her life.
In addition, the official said, over the past day, militants fired on Popasna district settlements, including with Minsk-banned weapons. In particular, in the evening, using self-propelled guns, automatic grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms, terrorists committed 15 attacks on the outskirts of Popasna town and neighboring villages of Novooleksandrivka and Novozvanivka. Ukrainian positions outside Zolote were hit with grenade launchers and heavy machine guns two times.
"Terrorists seem to be trying to blow off all the ammunition shipped to the so-called "LPR" by Russia in recent months by Sept. 1. The attacks affect civilians and the military, destroy homes and infrastructure facilities. The Luhansk Regional State Administration is working hard to promptly restore all facilities being of critical importance for normal everyday life in affected settlements," Klymenko remarked.
