The Russian occupation army destroyed Volnovakha in the Donetsk region in a fortnight with shelling. Before the war, it was a small railway town with a new outpatient clinic, a renovated hospital, a stadium and other infrastructure.
According to Pavel Kirilenko, head of the Donetsk regional military administration, the city of Volnovakha no longer exists. The Russian occupants completely destroyed it.
Earlier, over 100 thousand people lived in the area of Volnovakha. Most of the population was evacuated.
