A music school in the town of Kremennaya has been ruined in shelling by Ukrainian forces, social activist Rodion Miroshnik said in a post on Telegram.
Ukrainian forces fired four missiles at the town from a US-made high mobility artillery rocket system (HIMARS) on Wednesday morning.
“The municipal children’s music school has been destroyed,” Miroshnik said.
According to military expert Lieutenant-Colonel (retired) Andrey Marochko, the attack caused civilian casualties.
The Ukrainian government launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation against Donbass in April 2014. The peace talks that began soon thereafter failed to reach tangible results due to Kiev’s position to settle the conflict by force.
On February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation to protect Donbass residents from Ukrainian aggression. Prior to that, LPR and DPR Heads Leonid Pasechnik and Denis Pushilin asked the Russian leader to provide military assistance.
The Lugansk People’s Republic acceded to Russia on September 30, 2022 following the unification referendum. *i*ie
