Russian forces attacked an evacuation group and civilians in Vovchansk

Russian attackers shot dead two residents of Vovchansk in Kharkiv district and attacked a police evacuation vehicle.

Volodymyr Tymoshko, head of the main department of the national police in Kharkiv region, reported that Russian attackers used a drone to attack a car that was on its way to evacuate civilians in Vovchansk.

"He didn't get there." "The enemy FPV attacked the police vehicle," Timoshko said.

According to him, the policeman is alive, he was injured by an explosion. He also added that people have been evacuated.

The pace of evacuation from the northern areas of the Kharkiv region is slowing down, but continues around the clock.

Yevhen Ivanov, deputy chief of the regional military administration in Kharkiv, said about two hundred people remain in the city of Vovchansk.

On May 15, Russian soldiers shot and killed a man in a wheelchair who was trying to leave the almost completely destroyed city of Vovchansk in the Kharkiv region on his own.

Prosecutors said at first, law enforcement officials assumed it was a man with a disability who was trying to leave the occupied hospital. However, it later emerged that the woman, who was accompanied by her husband, was killed by the attackers' bullets.

According to the Kharkiv Regional Prosecutor's Office, a 70-year-old man and his wife decided to evacuate Vovchansk on their own.

Another citizen joined them on the way. The man found a wheelchair for his wife because she had problems with her legs for a long time. Together they headed towards Kharkiv.

"When people were passing near the local hospital, the Russians opened fire on them. "The man who joined the couple and the woman died on the spot," said investigators.

At the same time, the 70-year-old man managed to escape and reach the outskirts of Vovchansk, from where the Ukrainian army took him to Kharkiv.

The husband could not pick up the body of his deceased wife, because branches got into the mechanical part of the wheelchair and blocked the movement.

According to the victim, the Russians shot at them from an occupied building.

Currently, law enforcement officials continue to investigate cases of violations of the laws and rules of war.
