Chernihiv city was completely destroyed, 200 civilians were killed
According to the city mayor, “it is easier to count those buildings that have survived” in Chernihiv, a regional capital in northern Ukraine. More than half of the city’s 285,000 residents had left.
The mayor added that Chernihiv is currently in an operational encirclement, the enemy deliberately destroyed the bridge connecting the city with the Kyiv direction.
The city is unable to arrange humanitarian corridors and evacuate the wounded. The pedestrian bridge is currently under constant crossfire, and it is dangerous to transport goods across it because it could fall.
