Instead, only dangerous emergency structures are going to be dismantled.

About this reports informed Serhiy Borzov, head of Vinnytsia OVA, on his Facebook page. 

"Regarding the Officers' House: what will be demolished and what will remain? After being hit by a missile, the building is in a state of emergency. This is the conclusion of the State Emergency Service. After an examination by specialists, a decision was made to dismantle the debris. We are not talking about the demolition of the entire object, but about the dismantling of emergency structures where it is dangerous. The officers' house survived the Second World War. Endure this one too - he has already become a symbol of Vinnytsia's resilience," the publication says.
