Eight people, including a child, were killed in the attack.

Donetsk region governor Pavlo Kirilenko informed that one of the 8 dead was a child. At the same time, the journalists of the foreign news media agency AFP, who were present at the scene, were digging the debris of the block built during the Soviet era.

Black smoke was coming out of the houses due to the fire all around. The attack on Sloviansk was carried out after Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a bill.

The purpose of Putin’s bill is to include citizens in the army and prevent them from fleeing the country after the law is made. Russia also reported that it was advancing to the hotspot of Bakhmut, 45 km south of Sloviansk.

Russia is continuously attacking
South Bakhmut is that part of Ukraine, losing which Ukraine can lose this war. For this reason, in recent times, Russia has intensified the fight to capture parts of South Bakhmut. Last month there was a news that Russia had lost 500 of its soldiers in a single day during the fighting in Bakhmut.

Russia is continuously attacking with the help of Wagner Group, Army and Air Force. To remove the troops of Ukraine, it is trying to stop the supply. A few days ago Britain’s Defense Ministry informed that Ukraine has retained control over the western parts of Bakhmut city.
