After Russian forces struck the town of Pryluky with missiles, the Ukrainian government announced an evacuation of nearby villages, stated the Director of the Department of Civil Protection and Defense of Chernihiv Oblast, Serghiy Boldyrev, on June 13.
According to him, the evacuations concern the villages of Zaizd, Petrivske, Tykhe and Sukhostavets, all in Pryluky district.
“The reason behind the evacuation is the risk of a fire spreading as a result of these missile strikes,” said Boldyrev.
On the afternoon of June 13, the Russian invaders launched missile attacks on Pryluky. A total of three missiles were recorded. There are no reports of casualties thus far.
