Militants shelled the old part of Avdiivka. This was reported by Vyacheslav Abroskin, Head of the Chief Department of the National Police in Donetsk region, on Facebook page.

“Avdiivka. Attacks at the old part of the city again. Militants have no mercy for anyone, even children. The projectile hit the five-stored residential building #73 on Soborna street. The mother and five children aged five and over were in the house,” he wrote.

According to Abroskin, all the residents survived, they called police officers for help.

It is noteworthy that shelling in Avdiivka goes on for six days straight. The situation remains complicated. On January 31, state of emergency was declared in Avdiivka due to escalation after intensification of rebels’ activity and threat of humanitarian catastrophe. Currently, 244 people were evacuated from the city, among them 40 elderly people and 114 children.
