"Over 20 shells hit the town. The vehicle service station and a store were destroyed. The projectiles impacted the fire station and civilian homes. Even the church came under fire. One house completely burned down. The power transmission lines were damaged and the trees were toppled over," she wrote.
"The people are busy trying to repair the roofs and shattered windows, restore power supply," the medical officer said.
"As for civilian casualties, one woman was brought in Sievierodonetsk in critical condition with multiple shrapnel wounds to the head. Several more people with minor injuries received treatment in hospitals. No military was killed or injured," Chorna informed.
"The attack was deliberately launched against civilian targets. It was conducted yesterday (Aug. 30) between 10 p.m. and 12 p.m. They fired volleys with several mortars. Presumably three- four 120 mm caliber mortars were used. The fire was closely grouped and covered the fire sector. The ban on the retaliation fire from our side allowed the Russian troops conducting shelling for over an hour without changing the position and fear of backfire," she explained.
As reported, Luhansk Regional State Administration Deputy Head Yurii Klymenko said that the Russian militants shelled villages and towns along the demarcation line in the Luhansk region 25 times on the night of Aug. 31.
