The Governor of Lgansk Region Hennadiy Moskal visited Tryokhizbenka village located on the edge of the territory controlled by Ukrainian authorities on the bank of Siverskiy Donets river. The other side of the river is controlled by Russian terrorist group that call themselves “Cossacks of Great Army of Don”. The village is constantly under fire, terrorists are using heavy artillery, mortars, GRAD (multiple rocket launchers), tanks and automatic weapon. Last Saturday terrorist fired at local school using GRAD. The building was seriously damaged. Most of the windows were broken, some walls destroyed, the front of the building was damaged. One of the rockets hit the roof, but didn’t explode, another rocket exploded in the corridor inside the building.
On Sunday terrorists shelled at Orthodox Church. The rocket damaged the wall, metal doors got holes from debris, some windows got broken.
The church is located in the center of the village, there are no positions of Ukrainian Army anywhere close, so the could only hit it on purpose. This is the 1st case since the conflict started when the church got under fire. This church is known as Cossack church. Tryokhizbenka is one of the centers of Cossacks of Don. This shows the hypocrisy of so-called Cossacks who are on the other side of the river and attacking their relatives who has same religion.

In the last 2 days over 10 houses where damaged or destroyed during the shelling. Luckily nobody got wounded or killed as most of the people left Tryokhizbenka running away from war. While Moskal was checking the damage in the village terrorists opened fire. Obviously they noticed that few cars accompanied by soldiers entered the village. Few rockets exploded 300-400 meters away from the cars of Moskal and Maria Matios (Deputy of Ukrainian Parliament). Nobody got hurt.
