MOSCOW, August 4. /TASS/. Four residential houses have been destroyed in shellings by Ukrainian forces in the Alexandrovka settlement near Donetsk, local administration head Maxim Zhukovsky said on Tuesday.
"Four houses have been destroyed. One house was hit directly, and it burned down completely. The other three houses are partially destroyed," Zhukovsky told Donetsk News Agency.
The settlement’s governor Vladimir Cherkas said that Ukrainian forces shelled Alexandrovka all night - from 11pm until 5am. "A shell hit agricultural zone #2, farm buildings are burning. We have been extinguishing fire since 6am and still continue," Cherkas noted.
There is no electricity in the settlement because of last night’s shellings. No information on whether anyone was injured is yet available.
The settlement of Alexandrovka, located near the disengagement line, is often shelled by Ukrainian forces.
