According to Dubchak: "Mortar shelling began in Irpin: the occupiers fired 122mm shells in the direction of the crossing. People tried to hide, but many were children or elderly people. In 2-3 minutes at least one and a half dozen mortar volleys were heard.

Unfortunately, half an hour ago one of the shells hit a group of people– they were already past the crossing at that time– and killed four people, including two children."

Details: People are trying to evacuate both on foot and by car, but the journalist urged them not to go in the direction of Stoyanka, because it is "deadly."


According to Motorny, people who were trying to leave Irpin by car came under Russian fire. Some were wounded. There were children in the cars.

"The occupying troops are shooting at civilian cars indiscriminately and without mercy. A car with volunteers was shelled the day before, three people were killed," he said.

Dubchak said that a family died under mortar fire: a girl, a boy, and their mother. The man received very serious injuries.

On 5 March, the crossing in Irpin was bombed by Russian planes. There were street fights in Irpin at night.

Neighbouring Bucha and Hostomel are also under constant fire.

Neither Vorzel, nor Bucha, nor Gostomel, nor Irpin have mobile service.
