On the night of November 24-25, Kuibyshev district of Donetsk suffered from a shell attack. The photos depicting the consequences of artillery shelling were published on social networks.


The shelling demolished the dome of St. Peter and Paul Church,broke windows, damaged tram rails in Kuibyshev street. The service stationlocated across the road from the church was almost completely destroyed.

“The shelling started at night, almost immediately in our neighborhood the lights and heating were turned off. However, they were turned on in the morning. Explosions rumbled for several hours, it seemed they were likely to hit in our five-story building. We could only pray. It was very scary,I cannot get over,” said HalynaYakivna, a pensioner who lives in a house near the church,as reported by UNIAN religion.
