SLAVYANSK, June 08, /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian troops have resumed massive artillery shelling of the Semyonovka village near Sloviansk, the Donetsk region, from heavy guns.
A representatives of the self-defence forces told Itar-Tass on Sunday that the fire, presumably from the Grad multiple rocket launchers, was coming from Raigorodok settlement.
On June 7, a shell hit the Betonmash plant in Sloviansk causing fire in a workshop that manufactures paints, varnishes and lacquers. The self-defence forces said that two shells had also hit the building of the local Institute of High Voltage and a car wash in the Artyom district.
Meanwhile, Sloviansk is having problems with drinking water.
“The damaged water pipe has not yet been repaired. Only those who have stored water in bottles or have their own wells have drinking water,” the self-defence forces said, adding that most neighborhoods in Sloviansk were without electricity. With the coming of dusk, the Ukrainian troops use illuminating flares.
