Donetsk Oblast Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko reported that two civilians were killed and 11 were injured in Bakhmut as of the morning of Nov. 30. Russian shelling destroyed a kindergarten and at least three private houses in the city, he added.
Over November, Russia has stepped up its efforts to take Bakhmut, a city with a pre-war population of 70,000 people that is currently the site of the heaviest fighting of the war.
Ukraine’s General Staff said on Nov. 28 that Russian forces are trying to advance in the direction of Lyman, Bakhmut, and Avdiivka in the oblast.
One person was also killed and three wounded in Lyman over the past day, according to Kyrylenko. The governor repeated his call for residents to evacuate from the region as the situation remains dangerous.
