Hundreds of People Are Hiding in Bomb Shelters under Chemical Plant in Sievierodonetsk Hit by Russian Missiles

Around 800 people are hiding in several bomb shelters underneath the Azot chemical factory in Sievierodonetsk, which has been targeted by Russian missile attacks.

The local residents have sought shelter and protection from Russian shells and missiles in the Soviet-era bomb shelters under the factory, CNN reports with the reference to Serhii Haidai, the Head of Regional Military Administration.

“There are locals there, who were asked to leave the city, but they refused. There are also children there, but not many of them”, Haidai said.

He also reminded that in the early hours of Wednesday, June 1st, the Russians again fired on Azot factory and hit one of the administrative buildings and a warehouse where methanol was stored.

Although, according to Haidai, Ukrainians forces still maintain control of the Sievierodonetsk industrial zone.
