"Despite the fact that destruction is taking place, today the first train on the renewed railway went from Horlivka to Ukrainian thermal power plants. The process of restoration of the road took place under firing. Now I am a few km from the front line; in the evening Ukrainian positions are always actively shelled. We hope that the night will be safe. We are ready to respond to any militants’ actions," states one of the ATO spokesmen Valyl Voloshyn. He also added that the intensity of militants' attacks increased by 2-3 times for the last week. They use heave artillery to shell the residential areas.
The armed clashes significantly damaged the infrastructure, what hinder normal life of civilians. For example, in Avdiivka, Donetsk region, only three schools of seven are repaired to normally start the school year. As was reported before, the Cabinet is to allocate $4.107 mln to supply the State Agency for reestablishment of Donbas.
