Donetsk, Sep 1 — DAN. Yasinovataya schoolchildren will study in the Chelyabinsk region because of the difficult military situation in the town, Yasinovataya mayor Dmitry Shevchenko told the Donetsk News Agency.

“Our schools do not provide onsite training for well-known reasons, so we’ve launched a program to send our children to study in the Chelyabinsk region, ” Shevchenko said.

The authorities have agreed changing school with the parents of some 50 children, he added.

Yasinovataya, a regional railway hub, is located 20 kilometers north of Donetsk. It has been a frontline town since 2014 and comes under Ukrainian artillery fire almost every day.*jk
