Investigators from the Avdiyivka police station are working on the site. "Information about casualties is being verified," Abroskin said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the combined Russian-separatist forces attacked Ukrainian army positions in eastern Ukraine 61 times in the past 24 hours, which is almost half more than in the previous day and night.
