An Orthodox cemetery destroyed by heavy shelling near Donetsk

March 20, 2015. Ukraine president Poroshenko’s assistant Yury Biryukov has published on his Facebook page a video of heavy shelling of the Orthodox cemetery in the Monastery of Mother of God Iverskaya that took place in fall 2014 near Donetsk (eastern Ukraine), as reports Zvezda.

The publishing of this recording caused an outrage among Internet users. Most of all, because of the cynical comments about explosions. After a wave of angry comments Biryukov deleted video from his page.
