Fortunately, no one was killed during the attack.

On the first day of Lent (in the Orthodox Christian calendar), the Russian occupiers moved through the village of Zavorychi and purposefully fired artillery at private homes.

“Our parishioners said that they saw with their own eyes that Russian troops aimed a shell directly at the church’s dome, which was to the left of their movement,” said the church’s rector, Archpriest Petro Kotyuk.

Russians also fired at the church with heavy machine gun rounds. As a result, the church and several houses on the eastern outskirts of the village burned to the ground.
