More than 300 children remain under fire in Bakhmut, police urge evacuation

In Bakhmut, Donetsk region, more than 300 children remain under Russian shelling. Law enforcement is urging parents to agree to evacuation.

According to Ukrinform, this informs Communications Department of the Police of the Donetsk Region.

“The enemy does not refrain from trying to conquer Bakhmut. In the past week alone, the invaders carried out at least 14 massive attacks on the residential sector. Two people died instantly, 11 were injured of varying severity,” the report said.

It is noted that about 15 thousand people live in the city and suburbs, of which 306 are children. More than two thousand children remain in the Bakhmut district (most of them in the Toretsk community). They are in inhumane conditions, have no access to medical services and do not study.

The evacuation from Bakhmut is being carried out by the police, the military administration and volunteers, but few are willing to leave.

“I urge parents: save your children. Adults have a legal obligation to ensure that children are safe and have adequate living conditions. If you choose to stay under fire, then the baby should be evacuated accompanied by a parent or confidant. The police will organize the departure and the authorities will provide free housing and social assistance,” said Ruslan Osipenko, head of the main directorate of the national police in the Donetsk region.
