Russian invaders shelled a school in Lysychansk where 23 civilians, including children, were hiding in the basement, the head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration Serhiy Haidai reported via Telegram messenger on April 27.
There were no casualties.
The enemy also shelled the town of Pryvillia, Haidai stated. An enemy shell struck the courtyard of a home of a 68-year-old man, who died on the spot.
Over the course of the day, Russian invaders destroyed seven houses in the settlements of the region, and damaged many more.
In Sievierodonetsk, an apartment in a block of flats caught fire. Two houses were set on fire in Rubizhne, one in Nyzhnie, and two more in Lysychansk. Lysychansk's marketplace also caught fire, damaging some shops.
“Russian invaders opened fire on this village during a civilian evacuation, including 8 children from Bilohorivka. As a result, another private house is uninhabitable,” Haidai added.
He stressed that these reports concern just the structures that caught fire after shelling. There are houses where walls have been destroyed by enemy shells, where windows are damaged, and where parts of their roof is missing.
In the Luhansk Oblast, combat is ongoing for control over Popasna, Rubizhne, Sievierodonetsk and a number of other settlements. Russian invaders have managed to occupy Kreminna.
