High intensity battles with heavy artillery, tanks, Grads, and mortars are underway near Bakhmutka road.

Censor.NET reports citing the official website of the Luhansk region's Governor Hennadii Moskal.

According to the report, the villages located along the road, Krymske and Novotoshkivka primarily, have suffered most.

"The shootouts continued all night long in Krymske. The village was attacked from artillery and Grads in the morning. Gas pipeline was damaged; power transmission towers were ruined; there were direct hits to the houses. A huge glow was spotted on the outskirts of the village near the school - obviously the shell hit the gas-burning boiler house. About 90% of the population abandoned Krymske, fleeing from the war. There were no reports on casualties among the remaining locals. There is currently no power, gas, and central water supply in the village," Moskal said.

According to the governor, Novotoshkivka village, which is located on the Bakhmutka road near the 29th checkpoint also suffered from shelling. "The last artillery and Grad shelling stroke the village this morning. The explosions damaged a number of private houses; the building of the village community center has its windows and doors shattered. Information on casualties among the locals is being verified. The power lines are broken in the village so there is no energy and central water supply," Moskal said.

In addition, it is reported that the region was shelled by the terrorists and regular Russian troops from different types of weapons for 44 times yesterday and last night. The consequences of attacks on some villages and cities are still being assessed.
