According to Haidai, most housing in the city is already in ruins due to relentless Russian shelling.
“On the night of April 16-17, incoming artillery shells set three high-rises on one street on fire, (with) another one close by,” said Haidai.
“Emergency services arrived at the site as soon as the attack subsided; numerous apartments were on fire; we’re gathering information about casualties.”
