Stanytsia Luhanska is the closest location to the positions of pro-Russian terrorists that control Lugansk city. In the last few days the number of attacks on Stanytsia Luhansk has dramatically increased. There are multiple damages in the residential areas of the town. A lot of houses have been totally destroyed. The problem is that terrorists are shelling from residential areas on the East of Lugansk, so Ukrainian Army can’t return the fire in such situations. Civilians are used as a shield by the terrorists of so-called Lugansk People’s Republic. The number of shelling has increased after arrival of “humanitarian” aid convoy from Russia.
Below are some photos by Alex Rychkoff who just returned from the territories close to the front line. More photos are here http://rychkoff.livejournal.com/223918.html Terrorists mostly attack with mortars and GRAD (multiple rocket launcher system).
