Elsewhere in Ukraine, fighting was incessant in the Donbas region.
The city of Kramatorsk was hit by 11 rockets overnight. Seven people were killed and 14 others injured in and around the town, which is still cut off from gas, running water and electricity.
“Three-quarters of the region’s population has already been evacuated, as incessant shelling by the Russian army leaves civilians no choice – it is either to die of wounds, or from starvation and cold in winter,” Donetsk regional governor Pavlo Kyrylenko told Ukraine’s U.K. television.
The threat of a nuclear accident also loomed in eastern Ukraine, where shelling has hit an area home to Europe’s largest nuclear power plant.
Workers clear debris next to a crater caused by a rocket attack on a house in Kramatorsk, Donetsk region, eastern Ukraine on Friday.
The shelling near the Russian-controlled Zaporizhzhya facility continued overnight. Russian forces fired more than 40 rockets at the town of Marhanets, which is just across the Dnieper River from the power plant.
The most recent shelling injured three people, including a 12-year-old boy.
The neighboring town of Nikopol was also shelled, said Valentyn Reznichenko, the governor of the Dnipropetrovsk region.
The UN nuclear chief warned late Thursday that “highly alarming” military activity at the nuclear power plant could lead to dangerous consequences.
International Atomic Energy Agency Director-General Rafael Grossi urged Russia and Ukraine, who have blamed each other for the attacks on the plant, to immediately allow nuclear experts to assess damage and ensure safety and security. evaluate in the sprawling nuclear complex where the situation ‘deteriorates’ very quickly.’
He pointed to shelling and several explosions in Zaporizhzhya last Friday, which forced the shutdown of the electrical current transformer and two spare transformers, forcing one nuclear reactor to shut down.
