Yesterday on Feb 3, starting from 19:00 and for about an hour terrorists shelled Ukrainian fortifications in Tryokhizbenka near destroyed bridge, they used 82 mm mortars (about 50 shells were fired), automatic grenade launchers, high caliber machine guns and small firearms. The attack was from the direction of Krasnyi Liman (controlled by so-called Lugansk People’s Republic). There was no information about wounded or destruction.

Also at about 21:00 terrorists shelled pedestrian checkpoint in Stanytsia Luhanska using 82 mm mortars. Most of the shells exploded near the bridge in “grey zone”, but some of them landed near crossing line on Ukrainian side.

The Governor of Lugask Region George Tuka said that he was ready to close the checkpoint immediately as the life of civilians crossing the contact line there could be in danger if such shelling repeats. By after talking to military and border guards it was decided to leave the checkpoint open.

Regarding checkpoint in Stanytsia.

In my opinion if there is any possible danger from the side of terrorist the checkpoint must be closed! In the morning I made a decision to close the checkpoint. But military and border guards offered to give “one more chance” in order not create difficulties to civil population. I repeat: our defenders voted for that decision, who (in my opinion) were supposed to be the 1st ones to offer to close the checkpoint… I would already close it. But I highly respect our military, so we will be making a decision together. Always!

The Deputy Head of Lugansk Regional State Administration Olga Lishyk was there when 35 kids from Popasna area went to summer camp called “Forest Bank” located in Zhytomir Region

Almost every week we send children for vacation to summer camps. I am grateful to all regions that accept our kids. It’s important that children can see with their own eyes how people live in other regions, so they can tell about that to their parents. And I am sure that after that there will be no myths here in Lugansk Regions that “our brothers” try to make us believe.
