According to Haidai: "56 people were killed in Kreminna. On 11 March, Russian occupiers fired from a tank onto a care home for the elderly in Kreminna. They did it deliberately and cynically. They just positioned their tank in front of the building and began firing."

Details: Haidai also said that the 56 people who were spending the last years of their lives in the care home died on the spot.

The 15 people who survived were abducted by the Russian soldiers and taken to the regional geriatric care facility in Svatove, in the temporarily occupied territory of the Luhansk region.

Haidai added that it is still impossible to reach the site of the tragedy.
