Invading Russian forces have shelled a humanitarian vehicle on the Lysychansk-Bakhmut highway, Luhansk regional governor, Serhiy Haidai, said in a Facebook post on May 10.

"Yesterday, the Russians deliberately fired on a humanitarian vehicle," he said.

"The truck, with only a driver inside, was already returning from Lysychansk after delivering food to residents. An enemy shell hit the truck on the Lysychansk-Bakhmut route."

Haidai added that the driver survived. He said that the road remains dangerous.
