Only a “complete ceasefire” will allow the evacuation of hundreds of civilians sheltering in a chemical plant in Ukraine’s Severodonetsk, the site of heavy fighting with Russia, the regional governor said Friday.
“It is now impossible and physically dangerous to get out of the (Severodonetsk chemical Azot) plant due to constant shelling and fighting. There are 568 people in the shelter, including 38 children,” Lugansk governor Sergiy Gaiday said on Telegram.
