Several days ago Uglegorsk (a town to the north of Debaltsevo) was seized by the DPR Army. Upon their retreat, Ukrainian forces called a “Grad” strike at the town destroying its center. People have been hiding in the basements for days being in the middle of front line between the militias and counter-attacking UAF groups.
