In Ukraine, as a result of shelling of a car belonging to the humanitarian organization Road to Relief in the Donetsk region, two foreigners were killed on Sunday. This follows from the message of the humanitarian group itself, as well as the Spanish newspaper El Mundo.
Road to Relief claims that a car carrying four foreign citizens was attacked by the Russian military. The car was traveling from Slavyansk in the direction of Bakhmut and came under fire while passing through Chasov Yar.
As a result of a direct hit, the car overturned and caught fire, the organization said in a statement. They also noted that now all the necessary information is being collected on this tragic incident, and Road to Relief is contacting both the military and the police to resolve all issues. The Russian side has not yet commented on the information.
As noted, Canadian volunteer Anthony Ignat and Spanish citizen Emma Igual became the victims of the shelling. Two more medical volunteers – from Germany and Sweden – were seriously injured. Both are hospitalized. Their condition is estimated as stable.
The Road to Relief organization has been operating since March 2022. She is engaged in humanitarian aid to residents of Ukrainian settlements located on the front line, and the evacuation of people from the combat zone, notes the Russian service of the BBC.
