Russia Attacks Ukrainian City Of Bakhmut
The Ukrainian city of Bakhmut came under heavy strikes on Friday as Russian forces were targeting a nearby emergency service headquarters.
Some buildings remain standing in Bakhmut, and the remaining residents still walk the streets.
But like Mariupol and other contested cities, it has endured a long siege and spent weeks without water and power even before Moscow launched massive strikes to take out public utilities across Ukraine.
The Donetsk region’s governor, Pavlo Kyrylenko, estimated seven weeks ago that 90% of the city’s prewar population of over 70,000 had fled in the months since Moscow focused on seizing the entire Donbas.
