"Nothing is sacred to the "DPR" militants. Even Christmas holidays do not prevent them from killing civilians in the Donbas," he wrote.
According to Abroskin, the Ukrainian soldiers brought the girl's body with shrapnel wounds in her leg to Krasnohorivka this morning. The body was found on the highway between Krasnohorivka and Staromykhailivka on Jan. 5 but it was possible to recover it only now.
"She was probably killed by a mortar strike committed by the "DPR" militants against the government-controlled territory of Ukraine on Jan. 5. The girl was about 25 years old, her identity is being established," Abroskin wrote.
As reported, six Ukrainian soldiers were wounded in the anti-terrorist operation area as the Russian militants breached truce 72 times on Jan. 7.
