At least eight people have died and four others have been injured as a result of an attack, attributed by Ukraine to the Russian Army, on a bus stop in the town of Torestk, located in the Ukrainian region of Donetsk.

As detailed by the head of the Donetsk Regional Military Administration, Pavlo Kirilenko, on his Facebook social network profile, among three of the injured are children.

“The artillery was fired. It hit a public transport stop, where there was a crowd of people at the time. In addition, the Russians damaged the church and wounded the priest,” Kirilenko said.

At this point, the Ukrainian representative recalled that “every day” the Russian Army carries out attacks at different points in Donetsk, with which he took the opportunity to remind the population of the need to evacuate the territory.

The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for the Reintegration of the Occupied Territories of Ukraine, Irina Vereshchuk, announced at the end of last week the start of preparations to order the mandatory evacuation of the region before winter given the almost total destruction of infrastructure of heating supply and constant fighting against Russian forces.

In addition, he estimated that the mandatory evacuation order affects between 200,000 and 220,000 residents of the region, right now the epicenter of the fighting between Russian and Ukrainian forces. However, he later estimated that more than 500,000 citizens would have to move to other regions.
