Russians destroy villages by artillery to reach administrative border of Luhansk region

The military forces of the Russian Federation destroy villages with civilian residents by artillery in order to reach the administrative border of Luhansk region.

"They are firing incessantly all types of heavy weapons on Bilohorivka and Zolotarivka. Tube and rocket artillery is used. They [Russians] hit houses, every building they see as a possible fortification. In order to advance, they don't count their losses and don't feel sorry for the residents of the region," Head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration Serhiy Haidai posted on Facebook.

The fact that civilians die in their houses and yards does not stop the Russian troops, he added.

The situation is similar in the localities of Donetsk region which neighbor Luhansk region.

"But our armed forces hold the fort. Much was said, allegedly that Russians encircled us in Lysychansk, propaganda mouthpieces even talked about several cauldrons. I would like to emphasize that our troops retreated from Lysychansk in a centralized manner. Even those fighters, who covered the retreat, inflicted significant losses on the Russians," the head of Luhansk region emphasized.

On February 24, Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. The Russian troops shell and destroy key infrastructure facilities, massively fire on residential neighborhoods of Ukrainian cities and villages using artillery, MLRS, aviation bombs, and ballistic missiles.
