A Russian strike killed at least 10 human beings and wounded 15 Tuesday at a manufacturing facility in the eastern Ukrainian town of Avdiivka, the nearby governor stated.

“At least 10 killed and 15 wounded, the effects of the shelling of the Avdiivka coke plant by way of the Russian occupiers,” the governor of the Donetsk vicinity Pavlo Kyrylenko stated on Telegram.

He warned that the number of victims may rise.

Kyrylenko said the strike came as “the workers had just finished their shift and were waiting at the bus stop for a bus to take them home from the factory.”

“The Russians knew where they were aiming.”

Avdiivka — an industrial town north of separatist-controlled Donetsk — is on the frontline of the war with Russia.

The coke plant — one of Europe’s largest — has been the target of multiple attacks in recent years as Russia-backed separatist forces battled Ukrainian troops.

Russia has in current weeks accelerated assaults on territories held by using Kyiv within the jap Donbas place, now the point of interest of its invasion of Ukraine.

Coke is gasoline with high carbon content material and is a crucial industrial product, used in particular in iron ore smelting, but can also be used as a fuel in stoves and forges.
