In addition, according to the hospital staff who were at the site, the Ukrainian troops mined the healthcare facility buildings when they were leaving. According to the hospital staff and soldiers of the DPR army, at least six bodies of dead civilians were found on the square in front of the hospital after the shelling; counting is still underway, since the rubble has not been cleared yet.
