Luhansk locale Governor Serhiy Gaidai said the school in Bilohorivka, where around 90 individuals were protecting, was hit on Saturday by a Russian strike on a school, setting it burning.
“There is almost no hope that anyone survived. The aerial bomb exploded in the middle (of the building),” Gaidai wrote on the Telegram messaging app. “In the school, there were approximately 90 people, 27 were rescued. About 60 people were probably killed.”
Reuters could not immediately verify his account. There was no response from Moscow to the report.
Ukraine and its Western allies have accused Russian forces of targeting civilians in the war, something that Moscow denies.

In the mean time, heads of the Group of 7 countries vowed to boycott or gradually eliminate the import of Russian oil because of Russia’s attack of Ukraine.
