shot through. But we are not going anywhere. We are not planning to retreat. We are being destroyed by heavy shelling for three days. There is nothing more left here. We are awaiting support,” informed one of the Ukrainian soldiers. During a 24-hour period in the Donetsk Airport, six soldiers were wounded. All of them were evacuated.
