On June 9, the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) carried out about 20 strikes on the residential areas in the town of Stakhanov in the Luhansk People’s Republic. The fire was conducted from the AFU military positions in Bakhmut (Artemovsk).
On June 10, the death toll reached 22 civilians according to the reports by the local Ministry of Emergency Situations.
“22 people were killed, 4 people were injured, damaged and destroyed: residential facilities at 9 addresses and 6 infrastructure facilities in Stakhanov,” the message posted on the agency’s website says.
During the shelling by the Ukrainian armed forces, the city hospital, stadium, dormitory, residential buildings were damaged. The town was shelled by Ukrainian Hurricane (Uragan) rocket with high-explosive missiles.
Earlier, on May 31, the AFU carried out another attack on the residential areas in the town of Stakhanov. Two pregnant women were killed. 24 other civilians were injured, including eight children.
The AFU have been carrying out senseless terrorist attacks on civilians in the LPR and DPR for years. The residents of Stakhanov are only one of the targets of the Ukrainian military. Civilians in the city of Donetsk and nearby districts are also suffering massive artillery fire of the AFU which is carried out by various types of equipment, including the foreign-made artillery units supplied by NATO countries. As a result, the number of victims among the local civilians grows.
