The Ukrainian Army has subjected the town of Gorlovka to a merciless attack by artillery fire today. The local authorities report that at least 30 civilians were killed.
Some messages from the civilians in the war zone:
“My relatives just called. We could talk a little, then the shooting started again. My mother’s colleague tried to extinguish his house, but he was immediately shot down by a sniper.”
“Lots of houses on fire, I do not know how many for sure but a lot. The cannon fire continues. Army, are you gone nuts? We just calmed down.”
“Mom just called. Something exploded in the area near the entrance – glass, railings and pieces of roof sheathing flew around… Across the street the school is on fire.”
