Ukraine has accused Russia of dropping a bomb on a school in the Lugansk region where 90 people had taken refuge.

Serhiy Hayday, the head of the Lugansk region’s military administration, said a Russian plane dropped a bomb on the school in the village of Bilohorivka, which is about 11 kilometers from the front lines.

Hayday said 30 people have so far been rescued from the rubble.

“Almost the whole village was in hiding. Everyone who did not evacuate. After the social club was hit, the school basement was the only place of salvation, but the Russians seized this chance from the people “, said Hayday.

The rescue operation is underway, he said. Photographs posted by regional authorities show the school in ruins.
