Donetsk, November 7, 2014
At the St. Vladimir’s Church of Donetsk a funeral service was performed over the teenagers, killed near the school no. 63 during the shelling of Donetsk by the Ukrainian army.
Several dozen people gathered at the ceremony: family members, friends of the victims, volunteer corps members, mayor of Donetsk Igor Martynov, reports the RIA-Novosti correspondent.
14-year-old Daniel and 18-year-old Alexei were killed on November 5 in Donetsk when the school no. 63 was shelled. The shell hit between the school and the Cultural Center of Shevchenko (Kuybyshevsky district).
There have been no lessons at the school in this school year because of the shelling and so the children do home schooling, reports RIA-Novosti.
The injured teenagers are still staying at the hospital, one of the boys is in the intensive care unit. His brother received a serious concussion. Doctors had to amputate another boy’s leg. The youngest injured student is only 11 years old—he has injuries of one shoulder, the small of the back, and a heel.
The day before, the site and the hospital were visited by Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe observers.
