4 The people’s militia of the DPR, together with the humanitarian group ‘Angel’, delivered more than 200 food packages to the residents of the villages of Kominternovo and Zaichenko. The villages are located directly on the front line. The Ukrainian troops shell the residential sector of the villages almost daily, thus damaging the living houses. All the residents of both villages received their food packages. The packages help the locals greatly, especially the older people who find it difficult to go to the store. Often it is simply dangerous because the Ukrainian troops can begin another shelling at any given time.
