On the night of the 16th into the 17th of August, the Church of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul in the town of Mospyne in the region of Dontesk was hit by a rocket 1.5 meters in length by a Grad missile launcher. It entered the church after a strange orbit.

It entered through the window, shattering the glass and throwing to the ground the vase of flowers placed at the veneration icon of the Pantocrator Christ.

The Ukrainian missile was literally pinned to the ground and didn't explode. It remained kneeling before the superiority of the Pantocrator Christ and it was literally made His "footstool". It caused minor damage and a fire was prevented. Immediately after the church celebrated.
