The issue of tough security and humanitarian situation in Avdiivka will be the central topic of discussion that is due to take place in the European Parliament next week. David McAllister, the Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Parliamentary Committee, reported that during his meeting with Ivanna Klympush-Tsyntsadze, the Ukrainian Vice PM for European integration.

McAllister stressed on the role of the European Parliament in terms of liberalization of the EU-Ukraine visa free regime; he also said that the EU authority remains firm in its political support of Ukraine in the face of the Russian aggression.

Previously, Lithuanian foreign minister Linas Linkevicius urged the European governments to show a consolidated approach to Ukraine in terms of the Russian aggression in Donbas and the illegal occupation of Crimea.

In late January, the area of Avdiivka, Donetsk region, turned into the epicenter of extremely tense military actions. On January 31, the state of emergency was declared in the town, due to the constant artillery and mortar strikes. About three hundred people were evacuated from the town.

Power and water supply systems that were damaged by artillery strikes in Avdiivka are fixed by now; currently, maintenance crews are working on restoration of the damaged living blocks.
