Western media is not informing as regularly as it must be, they don't want us to see how they had ****ed it all up. Best regards for our forum mates in Donetsk area.

It is an optical illusion. Burning one-story house a few kilometers further. Ukrainian army fired them at the border Dontsk. This is done to force the rebels to withdraw from the affected area. After which the Ukrainian army could enter the city. The easiest way, but the most bloody.

Wow, the shadow over the roof gives the impression that the stadium is burning.

Then is not the easiest, only the fastest.

Sad to see. Doesn't seem to be structural damage, though.

It seems that it was caused by shelling (tanks or batteries, I suppose) .

34 civilian deaths in the last hours. Hoping that things would come to smothing similar to normal soon.

Luckily not yet. But who knows what might happen in this sad conflict. And the stadium is nothing strategic in this lousy and stupid war.

More damage.





Quote:
As a result of a very powerful explosion, the shock wave caused considerable damage to the western and eastern sides of the arena, - the acting Facilities Director of Donbass Arena Vadim Gun'ko commented on the incident. - Part of the glassed elevation collapsed, with the vast area being critically damaged. The internal space was also affected. We have been recording the damage, blocking the hazardous areas. We have a request to all Donetsk residents: under no circumstances should one approach the northern, western and eastern sides of the stadium, it's not safe at all.

According to Vadim Gun'ko, just miraculously, no one of the Donbass Arena staff and the people on the territory got injured. Later, they will carry out a more accurate study of the state of structures and clarify the feasibility of restoring the stadium facade.

Donbass Arena Becomes a Humanitarian Aid Hub

Instead of tickets, the residents of Donetsk were standing in line for food and sanitary products as the Donbass Arena was transformed into a humanitarian aid distribution centre.

* After months of war, it is a lot more peaceful in Donetsk now that a cease-fire is in effect.
* The aid distribution was sponsored by Rimat Akhamov, owner of FC Shakhtar Donetsk and the stadium.
* FC Shakhtar Donetsk will remain settled in Lviv for the remainder of the stadium, and likely the beginning of the next season.
