The small Cossack settlement of Luganskaya was ravaged by Kiev troops' shelling on July 2.
Two airstrikes by Kiev's military were carried out on densely-populated residential areas in the Lugansk Region, destroying houses and killing local residents.
Photos from the small Cossack settlement of Luganskaya depict multiple impact craters, and buildings laying in ruins.
Some of the houses in Luganskaya were burned down in the military assault.
The first plane appeared at 11 am in Luganskaya, and hit the center of the town. It destroyed the police building, damaged the courthouse and razed two houses to the ground, said the head of the local administration, Vladimir Bilous.
The site of the second strike by Ukrainian military on densely-populated residential areas in the Lugansk Region looked even worse than the first. Nine people died and 11 were wounded in the attack, said the head of the local administration, Vladimir Bilous.
Victims of the air raid by Kiev's military on Luganskaya included children as young as 5 years old.
Local residents accused Kiev authorities of carrying out the devastating air strikes in their village.
Luganskaya, with a population of about 15,000 people, was not directly involved in the fighting between government forces and the self-proclaimed People’s Republic of Lugansk.
Ukrainian forces also intensified massive shelling of another eastern Ukrainian city, Kramatorsk, in the Donetsk Region, July 2.
The building were damaged in the raid by Kiev troops and local residents had to hide in the bomb shelter at a Kramatorsk factory.
