DONETSK, June 23 Ukrainian military used NATO artillery caliber during shelling of the private sector of the Petrovsky district of Donetsk, said the DPR Representative Office at the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of War Crimes Related to Ukraine (JCCC).
“Judging by the characteristic fragments of the projectile found at the scene of the shelling, the Ukrainian Armed Forces used NATO artillery with a caliber of 155 millimeters,” the DPR Representative Office in the JCCC reported.

As the correspondent reports, as a result of the shelling, two outbuildings were completely destroyed and at least three more private residential buildings were damaged. A shell fell in close proximity to a house on Shpagina Street, which caused a fire in one of the buildings.
“”The outbuilding was destroyed – it flew into the barn, destroyed the toilet and the chicken coop. There were about 50 chickens, they were all killed. And in the neighbor's house, the outbuilding was also destroyed, only it was still on fire, the firefighters came. We were lucky, it flew a little over the house, It’s good that you survived,” said the owner of the damaged house.

Four civilians were injured of varying degrees of severity, and three more were killed. 12 residential buildings and five civilian infrastructure facilities were damaged.
