Frontline report: terrified civilians flee Russian advance in eastern Ukraine – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Russian forces are closing in on the city of Lysychansk in the eastern Donbas region of Ukraine.

It’s the latest focus of Russia’s war effort, with their forces close to the edge of the city.

Around 8,000 civilians still remain there, out of a pre-war population of 100,000.

Many are reluctant to leave despite the terrible destruction and risk to their lives as Russian forces approach.

Huw Edwards presents a BBC News at Ten special report by Orla Guerin and Colm O’Molloy, who joined a group of volunteers helping remaining civilians to flee.

What about the terrified rape victims in Rotherham. The silence of the vile BBC is contemptable

BBC propagandists, what happened to your azovstal naziis? Still 'evacuated' 😂

This makes me feel sick to my stomach… My grandmother say that the Russians are worse than the Nazis, speaking from first hand experience of being invaded.

Seems like the only one Russia is scaring anymore is a couple of Ukrainian civilians

Yet Russia acts as if their "intimidation" would still limit sanctions or stop Finland from joining NATO for example

DavA. June 23, 2022 - 4:38 AM

NATO doesn't help them to finnish the brutal war because this war hurts everyones and this is the reality the best say we send you weapons

Russia is winning on all fronts, militarily, geopolitically, logistically, socially, economically, and financially. Russia is the only world power able to self-sustain independently from what happens in the rest of the world. Russia simply does not care any more what the West thinks, does, or threatens to do. It can now beat us at any of the three at any time.

May God help the families and soldiers on both sides. Mr. Putin, this is not the glory you seek for your country or your legacy.

Izzy June 23, 2022 - 4:39 AM

Good job to all the news stations, including BBC ,in trying to make Russia look like the bad guy👍

BBC stories are falling apart these days. After all the trumpeting of Russian soldiers not good, tanks not efficient, now they say Russians advancing. Why were you guys spreading disinformation to taxpayers that pay your salaries. You guys are losing credibility and you do not understand. Russian invasion is a horror and so is the disinformation campaign to taxpayers.

Tamunoemi Barango June 23, 2022 - 4:48 AM

Americans and Europeans NATO nations don't want the War to stop, by all means Russia must be defeated, even when all the Ukrainians are dying let them fight to the last Ukrainian that's the policy is impossible for Russia to lose this war

AreYouOrange June 23, 2022 - 4:49 AM

damn this war, why the humans cannot just get along and live in peace. We should focus more on eradicating hunger, diseases and climate issues.

Poor Ukraine they are fighting for years, I'm crying for the people who are lost and Russia claims they will never exist, Ukraine wins this war 100 %, I'm sure, Putin is just a dreamer who will stop the war sooner or later, I'm praying 24/7 for Ukraine and civilian people who are struggling and suffering war. Glory to Ukraine!

Adrian Mazur June 23, 2022 - 4:53 AM
