MEP Rebecca Harms recently visited Avdiivka, which has recently been regularly plagued by militant attacks. The first Vice Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's Representative at the talks in Minsk Iryna Gerashchenko wrote about this in the social network.
Mrs Harms was also accompanied by People’s Deputy Maria Ionova.
Gerashchenko stressed that, despite the fact that Harms visits Donbas not for the first time, she was shocked by what she saw.
"We came in Avdiivka to see if the ceasefire state works. The local authorities told there was sporadic shelling at night and provocative fire in the morning, but in general it is quieter than a couple days ago, when there were dead, both among military and civilian", said the first Vice Speaker.
The delegation of parliamentarians spoke with the local population and the military and monitored the humanitarian situation.
