The fighters from Ukrainian National Guard return from the frontline with the so-called souvenirs. These are the pieces of projectiles the enemy uses to attack the positions of Ukraine. This red cat is the only resident left who is not afraid of constant shellings. Other people have already left the zone of permanent war fire.

Ukrainian paratroopers say Russian-backed separatist forces closely approach the contact line, leaving no more than hundreds of metres to the positions of Ukrainian army.
