Members of Russia-backed illegal armed units burned down houses of civilians in Kozhevnya village, Donetsk region. The village itself was totally destroyed during military actions in the region. Leader of the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic Alexandr Zakharchenko said this on January 26.

During his speech in a university in Makiivka, he said he ordered to burn down the houses to save lives of his fighters. “This village, Kozhevnya, means much to me. It was our first offensive operation in summer 2014. We destroyed the village during the fights. I had to order to burn down houses to save our lives”, Zakharchenko said.
