Date:

Rescue services are looking for 24 missing persons, including a child, who lived in the attacked building in the city of Chasiv Yar. live

At least 15 people have died and another 24 are missing under the rubble of a building hit by a Russian missile in Chasiv Yar, a city in the Donetsk region, which has been heavily bombed over the weekend. “At 1:00 p.m. (local time), the bodies of 15 people dead during the emergency response operations were found and another five people were rescued from the rubble,” the Emergency Service recently told agencies.

The teams work tirelessly among the ruins in search of a further 24 residents who, according to various witnesses, are neighbors of the apartment building that no one has seen since the explosion. Among them is a 9-year-old boy. The rocket hit the facade and much of the structure collapsed at the building’s only two entrances, allegedly trapping several people inside. A total of 67 firefighters and rescuers are busy removing the debris.

The Russian authorities have not released a statement about this attack, although there have been other bombings in residential areas or the Kremenchuck shopping center in the past three weeks, killing 18 people and several more missing. The artillery offensive has intensified in Donetsk province since last week the invading army took control of Lisichansk and declared the conquest of the neighboring Lugansk region complete. Chasiv Yar is located less than 20 kilometers from Lisichansk, within range of Russian guns. The General Staff calculates that in less than 48 hours there have been more than 200 bombing raids on Ukrainian areas, which are still under intense air and artillery fire.
