Documentation for claim

Period/date: 31. January 2017
Avdiivka has never been under separatist control, the town is part of free Ukraine and under the control of the Ukrainian armed forces. Zvezda then declared that Ukrainian military had resumed shelling Avdiivka, when in fact it is the Russian supported separatists that have been incessantly firing at the town in recent days: http://www.stopfake.org/en/fake-separatists-regain-control-of-avdiivka/
