Mayor Vadym Liakh stated that Slovyansk was being struck by Russian artillery from closer positions as it became a frontline town.

He shared photos from the fire on Facebook and described massive shelling. He also urged people to seek shelters.

Russia seeks to take control of all the eastern Donbas industrial areas.

According to Ukraine's military, Lysychansk was its last stronghold in Luhansk and it was forced to withdraw from the area Monday under intense Russian fire.

According to the army, its troops are strengthening fortifications in Donetsk to protect areas such as Slovyansk.

The BBC was not able to confirm details of the most recent attacks.
