Russian invading forces have opened fire on an evacuation bus, carrying people from Hirske, Luhansk Oblast, head of the regional administration Serhiy Hayday said in a Facebook post on May 23.
“There are no safe routes (out) left; evacuation bus, with people from Hirske was under fire near Vrubivka,” said Hayday.
“Fortunately, everyone’s safe now.”
The official added that evacuating people and delivering humanitarian cargo to the region remains extremely difficult: only one round trip is possible per day. More and more people are trying to flee to safety, amid intensifying hostilities.
