The monitors have inspected the explosion craters on Rudakova and Nikalaya Chury str. and concluded that the shells came from north-north-west.

The SMM found weapon fuses in two craters and determined that they were from 122mm or 152mm artillery shells.

The mission was unable to analyze the craters near the nursery school due to

time constraints and the presence of a crowd of 15 middle-aged women who acted in a hostile manner towards the SMM.

The monitors also inform that five people were wounded during a shelling on August 1. An 11-year old girl is among those wounded, according to the SMM. The city militia Staff informs that there was one person who died and four persons wounded.
