Russia damages "Vorskla" office in Sumy oblast again

14.03.2024, 17:54

The office of the newspaper "Vorskla" was once again damaged by a Russian shelling strike on Velyka Pysarivka, reports the representative of the Institute of Mass Information in the Sumy oblast.

On March 14, around 1:00 p.m., the Russian troops dropped a guided aerial bomb (UAB) on the Ukrposhta office in the very center of the village.

The "Vorskla" office is located in a neighboring building; the office suffered significant damage.

"Now it was the windows on the opposite side that were blown out. I left less than a minute before it happened. I was loading up newspaper binders. The archive..." said the editor-in-chief, Oleksiy Pasyuha, to the IMI representative.

The regional IMI representative also notes that the safety situation is deteriorating as the civilian population is being encouraged to evacuate and people are being moved to safer places in an organized manner.

This is not the first time that the newspaper's office has been damaged: the previous two times it was shelled with "Grad" missiles in February 2022 and 2024. After today's damage, working in the office is impossible.

On February 16, 2024, a Russian shelling strike damaged the office of the "Vorskla" newspaper in Velyka Pysarivka village (Sumy oblast). The team was unharmed.
