The death toll from a Russian missile strike on a busy neighborhood in Kramatorsk, eastern Ukraine, has increased to 12 people, including three children, Ukrainian officials said today. The raid hit the downtown area, home to restaurants, businesses and apartment buildings.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that if Russia captured the city of Bakhmut, Moscow could see it as a springboard to advance to two larger cities in Donetsk, Kramatorsk and Sloviansk. The skirmishes between Russia and Ukraine for control of Bakhmut have dragged on for months and have resulted in heavy losses on both sides.

The Russian Defense Ministry announced on May 20 that Russian forces had taken full control of the city of Bakhmut during a special military operation in Ukraine. Yevgeny Prigozhin, head of the private Russian military organization Wagner, announced that this force would completely withdraw from Bakhmut and hand over the battlefield to the Russian regular army.

According to US officials, Ukrainian forces managed to defeat Russian forces in the east around the Bakhmut region. However, Russian forces, armed with anti-tank missiles, grenades and mortars, gave “severe resistance”. Russian forces have penetrated deep into multi-layered defenses in some areas, which are marked by minefields, causing heavy damage to Ukrainian armored vehicles.
