Repair work is being carried out in the city to tackle damage from fires caused by the attack, and assistance is being provided to victims, Kikhtenko said.

"Commissions have been set up, acts are being drawn up. About a hundred cars were damaged, including private ones,” he said.

“The shells came from Novoazovsk-Taganrog. The Ministry of Emergency Situations is now assisting us, and I asked activists to attend to each person so as to help as quickly as possible. We have to do everything to overcome this.”
