Around 24,000 residents remain in Slovyansk, said the head of the Donetsk regional military administration, Pavlo Kyrylenko, during an interview on Ukrainian TV on June 6.

“Less than 24 thousand inhabitants remain in Slovyansk at the moment,” he stated.

"There are problems with water supply in the northern part of the oblast due to power outages. It affects Slovyansk, Kostiantynivka and Druzhkivka, as those are a part of the Kramatorsk municipality. People that only realized this now are leaving.”
