A column with civilians who wanted to leave the city of Kupyansk in the Kharkov region for Russia came under fire. This was announced by the Ambassador of the LPR in Russia, Rodion Miroshnik, on Telegram.
“In the Kharkiv region, the Ukrainian army fired on a convoy of five cars, in which there were civilians who were trying to leave Kupyansk for Russia. <…> According to preliminary data, more than 30 people, including children, were killed under the shelling of the convoy, — he wrote.
According to Miroshnik, seven victims were admitted to the LPR hospitals, including children who were evacuated by the military republics. Emergency services cannot take out the bodies of the dead due to “constant attacks from the Armed Forces of Ukraine”.
Kupyansk is located in the eastern part of the Kharkiv region, 70 km northeast of Izyum and 50 km east of Balakliya. This is the administrative center of the Kupyansky district. The city has a large railway junction.
The Russian military took control of Kupyansk on February 27, after the outbreak of hostilities in Ukraine. On September 8, the head of the pro-Russian military-civilian administration (VGA) of the Kharkiv region, Vitaly Ganichev, reported intense fighting along the entire line of contact. Two days later, he called on the inhabitants of Kupyansk, as well as the cities of Izyum and Veliky Burluk, to evacuate to the rear and to Russia. Then the military correspondents reported that Russian troops were leaving Kupyansk, Izyum and Balakleya. The Ministry of Defense explained this by regrouping in order to strengthen units in the Donetsk direction.
