Russia`s hybrid military forces attacked the old part of the Ukrainian-controlled town of Avdiyivka in Donbas on Sunday, March 19, which has caused injuries to a female civilian and set a house on fire, according to a local police department.
”Avdiyivka. At 15:20 local time, fighters from the ”DPR” [self-proclaimed Donetsk People`s Republic] attacked the old part of the town. A house at 139 Kolosova Street has been destroyed. It`s still on fire. A woman, born in 1949, has been injured. A team of investigators from Avdiyivka`s police department is working on the spot,” head of the National Police`s main department in Donetsk region Viacheslav Abroskin wrote on Facebook on Sunday.
