Ukrainian authorities announced that last night, the Svyatogorsk monastery was targeted, where about 1,000 people took refuge and that about 30 were injured.
According to Oleksiy Bilochitsky, the chief of police in the town of Popasna, about a hundred kilometers west of Lugansk, the Russians targeted the place with phosphorus bombs.
He wrote on Facebook today that the Russians were firing those bombs on Ukrainian cities, and that they were causing “indescribable suffering and fires.” That information could not be verified yet, writes France Press.
Earlier, the head of the Donetsk military district said that a train evacuating people in the direction of Lviv in western Ukraine was also hit by strikes last night. According to him, one person was killed and one was wounded in the bombing.
Those places are located in parts of Luhansk and Donetsk that were not part of the self-proclaimed pro-Russian separatist republics before the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24.
