Article by: Alya Shandra

The village of Pisky has been at the frontline of fighting starting from July 2014. It is under the control of the Ukrainian army but gets shelled regularly from territories of the so-called “Donetsk People’s republic” (DNR) by Russian-backed militants and the regular Russian army. In this video, villagers show destruction from a cluster munition that came in from the Donetsk technical rubber plant under DNR control and exploded near one of the homes of Pisky on November 8, 2014.
