Kadiivka lies within the range of the Ukrainian GMLRS systems about 40 kilometers behind the front line, and is a crucial node in the Russian months-long offensive on Donetsk’s Bakhmut.
Local sources say that two workshops were hit in the morning attack. The so-called “LNR Joint Center of Control and Coordination,” however, published photos of only one workshop damaged by the strike, avoiding to show what was damaged in the second one:
“The occupation authorities stated that there were no casualties among the civilian population, but according to our sources, several ambulances arrived at the scene of the shelling,” Ukrainian soldier call sign Skhidnyi reported, who is originally from Kadiivka, remains in touch with the city’s residents, and monitors local social media groups.
At about 14:00, local sources reported new explosions in the same area, followed by a massive fire and sounds of secondary detonations.
