The pro-Russian administration of the Ukrainian region of Lugansk, in the east of the country, has reported a devastating attack on a bakery in the town of Lisichansk this Saturday. The attack left at least seven dead, several injured, and around 40 people trapped among the rubble.
A spokesman for local emergency services confirmed the deaths of seven civilians, while the head of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic, Leonid Pasechnik, described the attack as deliberate and targeted against the civilian population.
Pasechnik stated that the enemies of the region have turned to attacking the civilian population of Lisichansk, knowing that it is the weekend and people are likely to be gathered in public places. He also mentioned that emergency services and military personnel are working tirelessly to rescue the victims.
The Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations later reported that the shelling by the Ukrainian Armed Forces caused a two-story building of a bakery to collapse in Lisichansk. Efforts are now focused on searching for and saving people trapped in the wreckage.
The attack has sparked outrage and condemnation from the international community, with many calling for an immediate ceasefire and a peaceful resolution to the conflict in the region.
The situation in Lugansk has been tense for years, with ongoing conflict between pro-Russian separatists and the Ukrainian government. The attack on the bakery in Lisichansk is just the latest in a series of violent incidents that have resulted in civilian casualties and widespread destruction.
The international community must come together to put an end to the violence in Lugansk and work towards a peaceful resolution that respects the rights and safety of all civilians in the region.
The tragic events in Lisichansk serve as a stark reminder of the human cost of war and the urgent need for a lasting and sustainable peace in the region. It is imperative that all parties involved in the conflict prioritize the protection of civilians and work towards a peaceful resolution through dialogue and diplomacy.
The attack on the bakery in Lisichansk is a clear violation of international humanitarian law and must be thoroughly investigated to hold those responsible accountable for their actions. The victims and their families deserve justice and support in the aftermath of this devastating attack.
As the international community continues to monitor the situation in Lugansk, it is crucial that all efforts are made to provide humanitarian assistance to those affected by the conflict and to support the ongoing peace efforts in the region.
In the face of such tragedy, it is essential that the voices of the victims and their families are heard and that their suffering is not forgotten. The attack on the bakery in Lisichansk must serve as a wake-up call for the international community to redouble its efforts to bring an end to the conflict in Lugansk and to ensure the safety and well-being of all civilians in the region.
