The number of enemy shells fired at Avdiivka reached 50 thousand in recent weeks, while the amount of ammo equals to 80 full freight wagons. This was reported by Olena Zerkal, the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, according to the results of first day of trial regarding Ukraine’s suit against Russia in the International Court of Justice.

"The number of enemy shelling in Avdiivka only reached almost 50 thousand over the last few weeks. Such number of fired ammo equals to 80 full freight wagons. At the same time, the official representative of Russian president publicly hopes that militants have enough ammo to shell Ukrainian Armed Forces in Donbas. May there be at least some doubt regarding the weapon supplier? No. Russian Federation is doing this," Zerkal said.

As it was reported earlier, International Court of Justice will start preliminary hearings on Ukraine’s suit against Russia on Monday, March 6. The trial will be held on March 6 - 9, and it will start from hearing of the Ukrainian side. Russian side will be heard on March 7 - 9 and Ukraine will be given a floor on March 8.
