Kyiv. Ukrainian rescue workers recovered three bodies from a school building after a Russian attack on a school in eastern Ukraine. Giving this information on Friday, officials said that Russian attacks are continuing in many parts of Ukraine. At least three people were killed and 23 others were injured in the attack on the school.
At the same time, an agreement has also been reached on Friday through which Ukraine will be able to operate its ships through the Black Sea to export grain-fertilizers. However, apart from this there has been no other sign of relief from the war. Russia reiterated this week that it also plans to annex areas beyond eastern Ukraine, where Russian forces spent several months trying to take over the Donbass region.
Ukraine’s presidential office said Russian bombing destroyed a school in Kramtorsk, Donetsk province, and damaged 85 other residential buildings. Ukraine’s state emergency agency said it had completed work on Thursday’s attack on the school and three bodies were recovered. Donetsk Governor Pavlo Kirilenko said in a statement to a news channel that the Russian attacks on schools and hospitals were “very painful” and showed its true intention to destroy peaceful cities.
Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Lieutenant General Igor Konashenkov said more than 300 Ukrainian soldiers were killed in the Russian attack, who were using the building of school number-23. In another attack, an ordnance store located in the industrial area at Mykolaiv was destroyed, he said. Konashenkov said Russian forces also destroyed the HIMARS multiple rocket launchers received by the US from Ukraine.
