Invading Russian forces conducted an assault toward Zolote and Komyshuvakha in Luhansk Oblast on May 13, Luhansk regional governor Serhiy Haidai said in a Telegram messenger post on May 14.
In addition, more than 50 houses were destroyed in the settlements of the Hirske and Popasna territorial communities as a result of shelling by Russian troops on May 13.
"We lose about the same amount of housing in these communities every day," Haidai said.
"Following the town of Popasna, the Russians are destroying nearby settlements. They don't need people and their homes – only the territory that the enemy turns into a desert. Half of the 30 attacks were recorded there on May 13."
The governor added that at least five houses had been destroyed in Troyitske, five in Viktorivka, and 11 in Komyshuvakha as of the morning on May 13, as well as five in Novozvanivka, five in Vrubivka, and 10 in Zolote as of the afternoon, and five each in Toshkivka and Katerynivka as of the evening.
According to Haidai, over the past day, seven high-rise buildings were also damaged in Sievierodonetsk and one in Rubizhne, where two private houses were also destroyed.
In Lysychansk, the administrative building of the rubber technical products factory was destroyed as a result of artillery shelling by Russian troops.
"However, the enemy continues firing near Rubizhne, so the destruction may be much greater," Haidai said.
