Details: Azarov advised servicemen’s families to contact the military commissariats and the Russian Ministry of Defence hotline for more information.

A group of mobilised men from Samara reported that as a result of the attack in Makiivka, "all the company's property was destroyed and remains under the rubble".

The wife of a mobilised soldier from Samara told journalists that there were "many dead" as a result of the shelling of the base and many soldiers had been "torn to pieces".

She added that the soldiers who survived had been left "practically naked", as most of their clothes and food had been left in the destroyed vocational school building.
