Governor: Less than 3,000 residents remain in Bakhmut

by The Kyiv Independent news desk March 16, 2023 3:33 AM 1 min read

Less than 3,000 residents, including 33 children, remain in Bakhmut, Donetsk Oblast Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko reported.

“There are people who absolutely refuse to leave,” Kyrylenko said, noting that evacuation efforts are ongoing.

According to Kyrylenko, while 42 children remained in Avdiivka last week, there are now only 13 children remaining.

The embattled city of Bakhmut has been Russia's main target for over seven months. Despite being surrounded on three sides by Russian troops, Ukraine's military has committed to its defense of Bakhmut, ostensibly to inflict large-scale attrition on the forces of the Wagner paramilitary group.

On March 2, he reported that around 5,000 residents remained in Bakhmut.

“We truly need popular support, especially during wartime. Being not dependent on a single money bag telling journalists what to do has always been quite a task in Ukraine. In wartime, that’s even more important.”
