Civilians in Ukraine’s Eastern Donetsk region were urged to flee on Wednesday as Russian forces bombarded the region, NAN reports.


“Russia has turned the entire Donetsk region into a dangerous hotspot for civilians as well.


“I call on everyone to evacuate, evacuation saves lives,’’ Gov. Pavlo Kyrylenko said on Telegram


In Slovyansk, which was reportedly among Moscow’s main targets in Donetsk, Mayor Vadym Lyakh said buses and trains were ready to transport civilians to the country’s west.


The focus of fighting has shifted to the Donetsk region of the Donbas after the Ukrainian military largely withdrew from neighbouring Luhansk, where Russian forces captured the key city of Lysychansk on Sunday.


Earlier on Wednesday, Ukraine’s military reported that it had repelled Russian attacks close to Lysychansk and “inflicted significant losses on the enemy.”
