Kyrylenko said the town of about 12,000 people was hit by Uragan missiles launched from truck systems. Chasiv Yar is about 20 kilometers (12 miles) southeast of Kramatorsk, a town that is expected to be a prime target for Russian forces as they grind west.
Donetsk region is one of two provinces, along with Luhansk, that make up the Donbass region, where separatist rebels have been fighting Ukrainian forces since 2014. Last week, Russia captured the city of Lysyhansk, the last major stronghold of the Ukrainian resistance in Luhansk.
Russian forces are unleashing “real hell” in Donbass, despite estimates that they are on pause in operations, Luhansk Governor Serhiy Haidai said on Saturday.
After the capture of Lysychansk, some analysts predicted that Moscow’s troops would likely need some time to rearm and regroup.
But “so far no enemy pause in operations has been announced. He’s still attacking our country and shelling it with the same intensity as before,” Haidai said. He later said the Russian bombing of Luhansk was suspended because Ukrainian forces destroyed ammunition depots and barracks used by the Russians.
