Currently the rescuers are clearing out the rubble of the former hotel, which was converted into a hospital for the people, evacuated from the liberated territories.
«A field hospital was organized on the territory of the non-functioning hotel ’Donbass’, located in the center of the town of Stakhanov. It was dedicated for the people from the liberated territories who suffered from the aggression of Ukraine. Yesterday a Ukrainian attack took place. As a result, there were victims» — medic Maria Golikova, who worked at the hotel, told to the reporters.

It was the 2nd such treaty that Ukriane have left by now. The first one was an agreement with Russia to avoid double taxation of income and property, and to prevent the tax evasion.
