Russian troops attacked the Zeus Ceramica factory in Slovyansk, which manufactures tiles, the head of the Donetsk Oblast Military Administration Pavlo Kyrylenko, reported on Telegram on July 13.
"The Slovyansk Zeus Ceramica factory became the next target of the Russian occupiers in Donetsk Oblast," Kyrylenko said.
“This evening, the premises of the factory came under shelling — fortunately, there were no casualties, but there is a lot of damaged property.”
He noted that the plant is a leading manufacturer in its field. It used to export its products to the European Union, the US, and Canada.
"The destruction of such a factory is a serious blow to the economy of the region,” said the governor.
“Russians are destroying our industrial potential. But they will pay for everything."
The General Staff reported on July 13 that on the Slovyansk axis, the Ukrainian military successfully repelled the assault of the Russian invasion forces in the direction of the settlements of Dovhenke and Dolyna.
