It should be reminded that the terrorists shelled cities, towns and villages of Hirne, Zolote, Orikhove, Chornukhine, Stanytsia Luhanska, Severodonetsk and Shchastia in the Luhansk region yesterday.
"The city of Shchastia was considerably damaged due to heavy strikes of the terrorists. We emphasize that according to the provisions of the international conventions on the rules and customs of war, such attacks of cities are considered a war crime," NSDC speaker Lysenko said.
A transformer in the Luhansk thermal power plant caught on fire as a result of a contact with a projectile. The northern regions of Luhansk were left without power.
