“The meeting of the War Cabinet of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine with the Head of the state is to take place on Tuesday noon,” reports the source of the news agency.
This is due to the escalation in Avdiivka, he says.
As it was reported earlier, the state of emergency was declared in Adviivka due to heavy shelling by the Russian-backed militants.
25 000 civilians remain under artillery shelling in Avdiivka. 524 of them are pre-school children, 8900 pensioners, 402 persons with disabilities and more than 320 orphans.
Police reinforcements arrived from the regional central board, headed by General Vyacheslav Abroskin at night. Employees of Avdiivka police station together with the consolidated detachment patrol fix all the consequences of terrorist aggression and assist the local population.
