A vehicle of the Proliska humanitarian aid mission has come under artillery fire from Russian-backed forces near the village of Novoivanivka in Ukraine’s Donbas region.
Evgeny Kaplin, the head of the Proliska humanitarian aid mission, announced this on Facebook, according to Ukrinform.
“Today, at 14:09, a car of the Zolote office of the Proliska humanitarian aid mission, returning from Vrubivka to Zolote, came under shellfire from 122mm artillery systems on the Horske-Popasna road near the settlement of Novoivanivka (close to Persyianivka),” Kaplin wrote.
According to him, this section of the road is located about 11 kilometers from the contact line. “Thanks to the coordinated actions of colleagues, they were evacuated from the scene. There are no casualties,” Kaplin said.
Earlier, he said that a team of the Proliska humanitarian aid mission visited the village of Trudivske in the Volnovakha district, where six houses were damaged during artillery shelling on February 18, and provided residents of the damaged houses with construction materials for emergency repairs from UNHCR Ukraine, a UN refugee agency in Ukraine.
On February 20, in the Donetsk region, enemy shelling blacked out the town of Krasnohorivka and destroyed five houses in the village of Pobeda and the town of Zalizne.
