The shelling of the town occurred around 9:17 p.m. on July 9 by four Russian rockets. The front line in Donetsk Region remains unchanged, so the Russians are resorting to civilian terror.
Russian troops shelled the Donetsk region, and as a result, a train station building burned down in the town of Chasiv Yar.
"Approximately four rockets hit. One of the houses that were hit by the Russian occupants is a dormitory where were civilians. There are no military objects nearby," - said Colonel Vyacheslav Boytsov, first deputy head of the State Emergencies Ministry's Main Directorate in Donetsk Region.
As of the morning of July 12, the bodies of 34 dead and 9 wounded had been pulled out from under the rubble of a five-story building in the town of Chasiv Yar.
"The rocket attack on the city of Chasiv Yar in the Donetsk Region. Everyone who gives orders for such strikes, everyone who carries them out on ordinary cities, on residential areas, kills absolutely consciously. After such strikes, they will not be able to say that they knew nothing or did not understand. Punishment is inevitable for every Russian murderer. For everyone - absolutely. Just as it is for the Nazis. And don't let them hope that their state will protect them. Russia will abandon them first when political circumstances change."- Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
