Quote: "The Ruscists are conducting intensive shelling of Lysychansk. Today, a six-year-old child was killed by enemy fire."

Details: Haidai reported that two bridges on the approach to Sievierodonetsk have been destroyed by Russian forces. The third bridge was under constant fire today.

"It is old and in a critical state, trucks can’t use it due to the high risk of collapse. If this route is destroyed, the administrative centre of Luhansk Oblast will be cut off," Haidai said.

According to the head of the Luhansk Military Administration, there is no opportunity to organise an evacuation from Sievierodonetsk, and the only remaining route out of the city is by foot via the last remaining bridge, which is extremely dangerous.

"Together with Iryna Vereshchuk, we are working on possible evacuation routes from the administrative centre of the oblast. We hope that it will be possible to organise an evacuation from the city, but we must first receive security guarantees," Haidai added.

Earlier: On Sunday, 12 June, 22 residents of Lysychansk, including three children, were evacuated.
