Enemy shells nursing home in Kreminna, killing 56

On March 11, the Russians opened fire on a nursing home in Kreminna, killing 56 people. Fifteen people were abducted by the invaders and taken to the temporarily occupied territory.

Serhiy Haidai, head of the Luhansk regional military administration, said this in a post on Telegram, Ukrinform reports.

"On March 11, the Russian occupiers fired from a tank at a nursing home in Kreminna, cynically and intentionally. They just moved a tank, put it in front of the house and started firing. Elderly people in the house - 56 people - died on the spot. The survivors, 15 people, were abducted by the occupiers and taken to the occupied territory in Svatove to the regional retirement home.

According to Haidai, it is still impossible to get to the site of the tragedy.

On February 24, Russian President Putin announced the beginning of a large-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops have been shelling and destroying infrastructure, residential areas of Ukrainian cities and villages using artillery, multiple rocket launchers and ballistic missiles.

Martial law was imposed in Ukraine and general mobilization was announced.
