Shelling from the Ukrainian forces hit towns such as Novolaspa, New Marevka, Grigorovka, Tavricheskoe, and Michurino near the line of contact, which destroyed 25 to 84 houses. In Staromarevka, they destroyed 11 houses, in Nikolaevka, they destroyed 22, and they destroyed five in Belokamenka”. In the early morning hours of 26 April, junta forces fired at Novaya Marevka with Grad MLRSs, causing property damage and killing one of our soldiers.
