Just two days earlier, on April 6, the Ukrainian authorities urged the residents of the country’s eastern regions – Donetsk, Luhansk and Kharkiv oblasts – to evacuate, ahead of the military escalation in the area.

“Evacuations have been going on since Feb. 26, and the Russians knew that thousands of people are there every day. I believe that’s what they were counting on,” Ihnatchenko said.

Governor Kyrylenko said that the Russians deliberately targeted civilians.

“Russians are deliberately trying to disrupt the evacuation of civilians to use civilians as a shield,” he wrote. “For them, people’s lives are just a bargaining chip and a tool to achieve their cynical goal.”

Nevertheless, Kyrylenko said that the evacuation will continue.

“Anyone who wants to leave the region will be able to do so,” he said, adding that further instructions are coming soon.

President Volodymyr Zelensky condemned the attack saying that “Russian monsters do not abandon their methods.”

“Lacking the strength and courage to fight with us on the battlefield, they are cynically destroying the civilian population. This is an evil that has no limits. And if it is not punished, it will never stop,” he said.

Russia has deliberately attacked civilian infrastructure and residential  buildings across Ukraine.
