Local resident Tatyana told the News Agency that she was not at home when the bombing occurred, but her elderly mother and daughter with a friend were there.
“My daughter called—crying, screaming, saying, The fence’s been knocked down, the windows blown out, and the horror is in the house. <…> With fright, I quickly run home. Thank God everyone is alive.”
According to her, those in the house were severely deaf, her daughter’s friend’s face was slashed, probably with glasses, and her daughter had blood on her ear behind her ear.
She added that the shelling became a frequent occurrence – and at that moment the sound of a bird shell was heard. Tatyana sat and listened a little, and with her experience said softly: “I shaved.”
The Petrovsky district of Donetsk is located on the western outskirts of the administrative center of the DRC, and is the farthest part of the city from the centre. Since 2014, when the DRC declared its independence from Kiev, this area, starting from the contact line outside the city of Marinka, has been regularly bombed by Ukrainian security forces.
