"This morning, [Russia-controlled] fighters based in Zolote-5 (the territory temporarily controlled by the so-called "Luhansk People's Republic," or "LPR") opened fire from an 82mm mortar to attack Zolote-4 in Popasna district," the police of Ukraine's Luhansk region said on December 21. "As a result of the shelling, slates, a chimney and two windows in two houses of local residents on Vilna Street have been damaged.
There have been no reports about casualties yet.

As UNIAN reported, Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation on November 1 reported the completion of the disengagement of weapons and forces on both sides of the contact line in the Zolotoe-4 area in Luhansk region.
On October 26, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky traveled to Zolotoe-4, where volunteers and war veterans told him they disagreed with the withdrawal of Ukrainian troops.
