Ukrainian artillery strikes damage 3,285 homes, 342 infrastructure facilities in LPR since February - JCCC
Kiev forces have damaged 3,285 homes and 342 civil infrastructure facilities in the Lugansk People’s Republic since the beginning of the special military operation (SVO) on February 24, said the LPR Office at the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination of issues related to Ukraine’s war crimes (JCCC).
“(Since the start of the SVO), Ukrainian forces have damaged or destroyed 3,285 houses in 80 settlements; 342 civil infrastructure facilities have been damaged including 83 education institutions and 14 medical centers,” the JCCC said.
On November 17, the LPR Office at the JCCC reported that Ukrainian artillery attacks had damaged 3,176 homes and 333 civil infrastructure facilities since the start of the SVO.
On February 24, 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. On July 3, the LPR militia and Russian armed forces fully liberated the LPR territory from Ukrainian armed formations.
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.
The Lugansk People’s Republic became a part of Russia on September 30, 2022 following the unification referendum.*i*v
